SATURDAY, APRIL - 6, 1018 Ti*t urn-iBRiDG!-: daily i:f.rald PAGE ELEVEN Ottawa, AprVj Jl .-Union govern*, ninnt does very wi freak of nature. The Siamese twins at onco spring into one's mind. Thu SianiedB twins, yon will remember, had two heads, two hearts, two stomachs and were united by a frail bond in the middle. They were, as I tulce it. very much like the coalition governments, which wo used to have bn-forB Confederation. They bad separ-ate interests, quarreled often and bad a very slight, hold on life. Home of tbom, as you remember, lasted no longer than twenty-four hours. The present Union government is not that kind of. twin. It. is a numb more viable child because it has only one head, one stomach from which party 7)atronage is abolished, and a plentiful supply of bowels in the shape of flu.' largest majority in the history of Canadian politics. It. ought to be able to digest anything. No one doubts that it will pull through this sefiHiou but next session trouble may develop, particularly if the war is In sight of its finish. Union government as it exists today is a union from the collar up- two headB that think as one-two B � Found New HEALTH OK greater vnlue Ihnn gold and silver il health restored, t'p in tlis mjniUK district of I^irder MiK, Out..

Wef innst go through a great deal more adversity before we really get together. Party Caucus Room A concrete example Is 'the party caucus rooms-and the liberal Unionists who seem to be nil dressed up and no place to go. The old Liberal caucus room is as empty as a beggar's pocket. The old Uborals who supported Laurier before December last do not go there as a matter of course, and (be new Liberals, like Noah's dove, have no place to perch. Quebec has a room of its own, from which it watches the game with a coldly critical eye, gauging the time when it will drive in the wedge and upset the arrangements. That time is (not yet, matters being much too serious in Europe just, now to indulge in factious manoeuvres tit home. Meantime the Quebec bloc, thrown on itself, develops ti sense of comradeship and solidarity which may function actively when the sky clears. Sir "Wilfrid's support, outside of Quebec, numbers nine!emi. and aa it, does not mix readily with its French compatriot;!, it finds itself between the. devil and the deep sea, ami so compromises, each man of it, by crawling into his own hole and dragging the hole in after him. If Union is ever to be a success, the private rooms for members will likely have to be cut out or greatly curtailed. This explains why the old Liberal caucus room has no life in it except the messenger in one corner and the clock ticking sadly on the wall. The old Conservative caittius room has a brisker appearance btlt its briskness is not due to brotherly love between the two parties. It is due to the fact that the Conservatives old and new go there because it is the proper place to go. It is atlli known as ihe Conservative room, and no change of labels car. hide i�a> identity. The old crowd still plays euchre in the far corner and the new crowd-it it happened to be Conservative before it was Unionist-finds a pleasant home there. The Liberal Unionists would be heartily welcomed if. they came but they do not Beem to feel at ease there and so they stay away. It will probably take two sessions before they get over their shyness. They may look in at the door but most of, them flash past like startled fawns. The other morning Dr. Michael Clark ventured in. The great free trader was greeted with acclaim in the erstwhile stronghold of the protective tariff. He passed the time of day and withdrew in good order, but not before a wag exclaimed: "AVlia't a queer caterpillar to find on this tree!" This was an ill-advised remark, because it Is a long worm that has no turning, nnd that very afternoon Red Michael broke out in a tree trade harangue which made Mr. Cockshutt's teeth jingle. It was the doctor's way of balancing a delicate situation, 'Mr. Oockshutt complained that it was against . the bargain-Hiat. nothing should be said About fcue tariff this session-but the doctor eloquent only let out another link or two in his rhetoric. The great idea makes no treaty with the -enemy.' It was noticed, too, that when Cocksliutt said "bargain," the Hon. Mr. Crerar shook his head, which probably meant that the West was no party thereto. The bargain, it any, is a tacit one. It is not a matter of verbal or written agreement-its binding force is the impropriety of such a discussion, at. this moment. There is a time H'ov everything, and the time to discims the tariff is not now, when the forces of democracy are at death grips with the Hun. Meanwhile, there.is no bargain, for example, with "Ihe manufacturers of agricultural implement?,;- who in face of the pressing need fqr greater food production, clap an extjfc',20 per cent' on the prices of too typis with which the farmer docs tils producing. The farmer, it is true. .-markets and markets can make him'inbro pros-porous than tariffs can make him mi-happy, but that hardly excuses the agricultural implement manufacturers for not, seeing further ahead than their noses. If Dr. Clark plants a heavy foot on "the bargain" they have only themselves to blame for poaching on that spirit of sacrifice which must carry us through this war. Home, day, not distant, the tariff must, be overhauled. Meanwhile nothing should be done by either party to the discussion which will interfere with a reasonable - adjustinent on the basis of give and take. Humor has it that Mr. Howell is developing � ael ive interest in matters more practical than moral reform. His conferences with labor, with the Provincial Premiers, with the feminist movement, did' not bear much fruit, but his fight, at the council table with the packing industry went a long way towards shaping the new regulations in regard to cold storage. 11 seems that Mr. Howell is not too proud to fight-except with Mr. Murphy. Much to the suprise of his colleagues Mr. Howell took advance ground on tin; subject -ho was almost, in favor ol' pushing the packing industry over Ihe brink. Some people are unkind enough to say that he did it because it was popular, but. his friends will probably retort that lie did if. because it was right.. Mr. Howell has tasted blood. What is it. Balzac says? Every clove is a Hoberspierre in white feathers. If. F. GADSfiY. Moscow, Apr. 4.--A press despatch from Kiev says the Ukrainian Rada has passed a resolution favoring the continuation of military operations against the soldiers' and workmen's deputies, although the president of the Rada, Prof. Grushevski urged that peace be concluded because of widespread dissatisfaction among the peasants with the Rada's policy. Repeated requisitions of grain by the. Germans are being resisted violently by the peasants. One village was destroyed by artillery because Its inhabitants offered armed resistance to a third requisition.

Try CARTER'S IRON PILLS Goes Clear Through Well � (���� ����� ALLEN JACK LETHBRiDGE Dealers in Every Locality \Y/E wanted the Gray-Dort *V car well done beyond comparison. In striving to have it well done, we found the accepted formulae of motor car building wholly inadequate. We found, for example, that we wanted a better, simpler, sturdier motor than was being used in cars of the Gray-Dort class. So we called in Etienne vPIanche, perfecter of the Peugot motor, and had him build the splendid power-plant that goes in every Gray-Dort. We were not satisfied with the comfort of other light So we designed a special of unusual roominess, with extra good cushions, and 50 inch full cantilever springs in the rear. We found that many owners of cars at all prices had' trouble.with the starting and lighting system. - For the Gray-Dort we secured the W estinghouse. Throughout the entire car it is the same. Fine materials, pa i n s t a k i ngj workmanship, correct design have made this a fine car, yet a less costly car than many thatlackitsquality. The new Gray-Dort embodies all the good features that won instant success for former models. The 4-cylin-der motor is a triumph of smooth, economical speed and power. The chassis is sturdy and quiet. The springs are long. The upholstery is deep. The equipment is absolutely complete from electric starting and lighting to the tools. New lines of beauty have been given this model. The five-passenger touring car is $1,125; the three - passenger fleur-de-lys roadster is $995; the Gray-Dort special, beautifully finished and with extra details of equipment is $125 above the list. All prices are f.o.b. Chatham.
