Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD ?AGE SEVEN THE NEWPARLIAMENT Ottawa, April 13.-This new Parliament Is about 12 por cent, nowcr than now PnrlliimontH usually uro. Tli� avenigo amount of now blood In ono-thlrrt; this* time i-i. runs over one-half-which Koe� lo chow that the people thought very highly cif Union Uovernmeut and aimed to make ith arterial cur-ronlH healthy by getting tlio htaie  lufi' out of itho .system. One 'ioen not realize just how new thin Parliament ' is for several roa.soiiH. Olio reason is Hint (':)!. Chambers has not yet issued his useful vade mccum, the Parliamentary Guldo, which tells where the members came I'i'oi.ii, how .they arrived at. their present, dizzy pinnaclm, how many 'tlmea they havo been married, What church they go to and oilier muttons which are - set. down on the form sheet. Another reason is that the Victoria Museum is no true Parliament building whoro the members can nil got 'together and be seen as it were on masse. The third re tiivo changed Strange new light on them which makes them unfamiliar. A New Light. * What I mean to say (3 that this otrange new light-brotherly love, no doubt, and tlio fifty-fifty spirit- a light that lias never shone on'Canadian politician's face before, and which is intermittent, even now- ijuito transfigures them.- 1 do not reeognlzo my old friends-particularly my old friends of the. Liberal party, who arc now camouflaging to tlio right of Mr. Speaker. I don't know them when 1 see them, and what's more they'don't know themselves. When 1 see them-I said t hat advisedly-because these old faces aro very hard to be soon. They used to bo well up toward the first row, right near to Sir Wilfrid Laur-ier, and how they aro. hidden behind posts, draped over the radiators, festooned from tlio galleries-in short an indistinguishable part pi that rich background of seven)y-one, which is the Union Government majority. sason is that many of the old faces ivo changed sides, and have a Lemons Beautify! / Make Quarter Pint of Lotion, Cheap? What girl or woman hasn't heard of lemon juice to remove complexion blemishes; to bleach the skin and to] still bring out the roses, the freshness and matter of fact Ontario furnishes even Whore - la the sunrise countenance of Red iMichacl? Ah! there he is in the lee of Bill Smith and Tom Wallace. But. what n atrango conjuncture for these throe jolly muske-toors whoso companionship hitherto Iibh." been 1 outside the House /onljr! And Kred1 Pardee? At the Old Man's olliow no longer! Where,, oh where is Fieri? Ah! there he is- he and Hugh (luthrlc, the two iron-grey heads' together again! Ah! these old faces*hi the new ,places -it makes one's heart aclio oven if it is lor tlio gooil of the country! Of course one misses Oeorgo Gra-ham and Ned Macdonald and all the other gimd fellows the election left behind. They leave a gecat. gap in the House and almost as great a void in Hansard as it. B. Bennett whose eloquence was constant as the Chaudlvrs Fail.1;. And William Manly Geivnian-when ho disappeared ho took tho rosy hue of dawn with him. I shook hands with him in the Post Office the other day and it was almost like old times. Some of the ^old faces have gone for good-fate removed them via the ballot box. Some have gono . to heaven-some to the Senate, which is an intermediate stage-and some elsewhere. Those who went to the Senate, like Bennett, Blain, Fisher, Schaffner and JSradbury, are not.Jost but gone before. Still one misses them from their accustomed places. They are so near and yet so tar, as far as the Hod Chamber, which is a long way from the activities of human life. Much as one yearns for the old faces ho does not follow them to the Senate-that Hall of Sleep, where the wicked cease from troubling and tho weary are at rest. Personally, I would as soon � pursue platitudes through the leafy dales of ilansard .is members of Parliament when they drift into the drowsy reaches of the Upper Chamber. As an Ottawa correspondent of nineteen years' standing I say peace to the old faces whether in old places or new and when they open their faces may it bo brief and to tho 'point, this being a Union Government pledged to thrift, even of words: There are enough old faces in Parliament to make one feel at home and enough new ones to make one feel sad. Change and decay in all around wo see-I had a tooth filled myself yesterday-so- let it go at that. As I said before, this is a new Parliament. It has a new Clerk, a new Deputy speaker, and a Mace still in its infancy. The Mace is ip be fitted with a new attachment, and is to bo used for spraying the debate whenever it touches on Quebec's share In  the war, which will be as often aB Colonel John Currie feeis restless. Colonel John, My the way, is an old face with a new message. Before the election ho was a more or less docile Conservative, but Union Government struck off his shackles. Colonel John Currie's new object in life is to act as the thistle under the war horse's saddle-thii3 making the steed go faster. War Horses. Talking of war horses there are finite a few in the House-among thorn the Toronto group, notably Dr. Sheard and 11. C. Hocken, who is not only a war horse of twelfth of July proportions, but an ex-mayor besides. Naturally they champ at the bit-particularly at the bit they . are expecting Quebec to do. As a E ' GOVT. APPOINTMENTS King's regulations is that officers not on duty shall doff their uniforms, which explains why the generals, colonels, majors and captains In Pa.-llament no longer wear their khaki- but the khnK* spiTlt is there still. In harness or not tho war horses snort and paw the ground. When Sir Sam, as -Minister of Militia, used to stalk about in khaki he always gave the impression that ho had left the horse outside. Now that lie has taken off the khaki lie brings the l�orse Inside to even things up. This is an easy matter because Sir Sam Is himself the war horse and still in the thick of the battle. Major General Mewburn sheds his khaki before ho enters the Chamber. He speaks soft fo Lord, and what's more he tics the bull outside. Yes, tills Parliament Is ve/y, very new. Kven Quebec looks strange to me . And yet no one ( should be. surprised at that. Last. I stated that Mr. Nichols it was a divided Quebec- | his post aftor ho' ,(llowe',1) had con This ; suited representatives of ih'rui"- ! steamship lines was believed by some He asserted that Mr. Meh'ils work ; off,(.. )s |olI. ff, forosna(.imv a taking has nothing to do with p� itieal pro-j oypr of a, American sailing vessels, paganda, as was suggested by lion.: vessels are directed by 11.
