COURTESY TO ALIENS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Among tho various sentiments ex pressed by numerous contributors in youi columns, my attention has teen directet to an injustice to which a certain portioi of our citizens are thoughtlessly subjected With many of our own people, any nanu suggestive of foreign extraction carries will it a large measure of uncharitable odium and is repulsive to tho last degree. This, t( my mind, is but i.hc revelation of un righteous morbidity, and I have no hesitancy in affirming that fellow-feeling and mora principle are not only disregarded, bin shamefully flouted If brotherly kindness i: I an essential quality or attribute of out I boasted civilisation, most assuredly a splen did opportunity is now afforded for its im I mediate application In many instances, th< 1 allegiance of these victims of our oonsidera tion constitutes a striking evidence of tho in estimable blessings under which they, am , possible their forbears, have preferred tc I dwell, rather than submit to the ctriiigcni 1 measures of relentless and despotic KaiseV' dom. The loyalty exemplified by many ol our friends of German lineage during this critical period is an object list-on in devotion to the land of their adoption, ami further speaks volumes of appreciation ci the national freedom which they enjoy. While freely recognising tho imperative i necessity of cur authorities making thorough I investigation info the conduct of all alien I citizens, I consider that efficient means can jbo procured without regard! oscly giving t offenro to the confirmed \oyaUy cd citizens of foreign extraction, ias tact J and discretion have ever a widf 1 field on which to freely operate. Af i has previously been pointed out, wo are not 1 at war with the German people, but with a i high-handed and despotic Kaiser, who in | conjunction with his aggressive, war party 1 wish to crush not only our Empire, but our j nat ional existence. Thus a life-and-dcath 1 stm""!!" now confronts us, but even in the : midst of adversity* “charity suffered) long j and is kind.”—l am, etc.. IT.M. I November 23.
