HAD TO HELP C. P. R. The Conservatives in Parliament and in have been severe- ly criticising the government's ac- tion in advancing a loan of ten mil- lion dollars to the Grand Trunk Pacific to help them over a tempor- ary tightness in the money market when the company would have to get money at a great loss. The cri- tics have not evidently recalled an exactly similar circumstance twen- ty-five years ago -when the Conser- vatives were in power. The Can- adian Pacific Company was up ag- ainst exactly the same problem and wanted a. loan of thiry million dol- lars advanced. The Liberal opposi- tion opposed the action but the go- vernment-carried it through. Sir Charles Tupper in a recent publish- ed article, in telling of th incident says that the opposition said it was not a loan as the government would never get it back. he say "the loan was well repaid -with inte est before it was due." There is no doubt that powerful financial interests are trying to em barraes the Grand Trunk Pacific ev en similar efforts were fort against the C. P. E. at the time re ferred to. It is the government' duty now, as then to see the compan through, not so much in the interest of the comjony but because it is the interests of the country, to hav the railway completed as soon a possible. Sir Charles' reference to the C. P R. loan is as follows: "Shortly after I had concluded I received a cable from my .coJ league, the Hon. H. Pope, wh was acting .minister of railways saying that the Canadian Pa- cine Railway Company' was in trouble and asking me to come out I found on reaching Canad that the hostility of rival railway interests in New York and Lon don had closed both markets ag ainst them, and they were unable to1' proceed with the work, After thoroughly investigating the- po- sition, with the approval of the government L proposed to Parlia ment to grant the company t loan for four years of forty mil- lion dollars at four per cent. Mr. Blake, who strongly opposed the loan, said across the House: "Don't call it a loan, you know we will nevr get a dollar." The loan was granted. Sir Donald Smith (now Lord Strathcona) drove the last spike in Novem- ber, 1885, the line was open for traffic in 1886, five years before the contract required, and, the loan was well repaid with interest, be- fore the contract required 'RBRB fore it was due. When it is re- membered that at the time that contract for the construction of the Canadian Pacific railway was made the line as located did not interest any community of one hundred white men from Nipis- tho .started on the trail new sensation, the sober second thought of Canada will, your correspondent believes, real, ize that the House of Commons did the proper and appropriate thing and took the wisest action. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Kootenay magistrate, who re- sorted to the use of the whipping post to punish a. young man, who hatf attempted to outrage a young girl, deserves to be commended. Pun- ishment of this character is required in order to make these fiends realize that they are as low in the scale brutes. An American hospital director says Canadian nurses are to be found in practically every American hospital. He failed to add that many of them seem to win the hearts of patients and doctors and are chosen to pre- side over the destinies of American homes. The Canadian girl is a win- ner. ter the of tendered Brother Mowtt for hit in- structive address and to Bro. Doubt of Pincher Creek Lodge No. 5, man- ager of the Alberta Hotel, who enter- tained the brothers to Dinner in a very handsome manner. Harry Gladstone, for supplying li- quor to an interdicted person, was on Friday last sentenced by J. Bid- dell, J. P., to a fine of or two months in quod. It is sincerely to be hoped that this will prove a val- uable lesson to all concerned as it is anything but conducive to law observance to see a man who has been "flagged" not to "stop." Echoes of the Chicago wheat cor- ner are heard here these days. For- tunate holders of some of last year's crop are offered considerably over a dollar and are holding for more. MM11IM1MIMI A Hamilton minister asks the ladies of his congregation to take off their hats in church. That minister is wise in his day and generation. The hat in vogue this year is cap- able of hiding not only a minister but an entire choir from the view of the man in the rear of it. The Montreal Board of Trade refus- ed to send delegates to the conven- tion at Detroit to secure better trade relations between Canada and the United States. They say Canada does not need United States trade, the boot being new on the other foot. Despatches to St. Petersburg say that Japan is sending large reinforce- ments to Manchuria.

German TheShoeman sing, in Ontario, to the shores of the Pacific ocean, it is not strange that doubt as to the finammial re- sults would have been entertain- NAVAL DEFENCE Canada's part in naval defence as outlined at Ottawa by Sir Wilfrid is meeting with the approval of fair minded men. The" Ottawa correspondent of the Christian Guardian, Toronto, hits the nail on the head when he says: It was an epoch-making debate one which marked another step forward in the development of the Dominion as a nation. Ca- nada, as represented by the House of Commons, put itself on record as prepared to assume the defence of her7 own shores and as being ready-to establish a navy, to act as a protection to the; Dominion's commerce in times oi peace, and as an auxiliary to the Imperial fleet if war should ever break out. The plan as expressed by Sir Wilfrid-was to inaugurate a Ca- nadian navy, buiit up along the lines of our militia, which would serve the same purpose on sea as our troops on land. The Premier made it very plain that he had no intention of being stampeded by a war scare into nudden and spec- tacular in this deter- mination he was backed by the House. The British War Office will be communicated with, and in due time a naval policy formu- lated, wbioh will harmonise with Great Britain's. Ardent Imperialists will probab- ly chafe orer the apparent inac- of? the House of Commons. They will have sarcastic things to say; Wben present fevered bM Mown aw, when the bot btood whkb sur time of hss coofed, Md vhen Fred W. Downer's suggestion that Lethbridge men should travel to Seattle in a special car is one of the best things ever offered in the pub- licity line. A car with the proper advertising floats on the outside would bring Lethbridge into prom- inence not only at the big Seattle fair but at points along the line tween this city and the Pacific coast. It is to be hoped the plan can be carried out. With the new curfew by-law strict- ly enforced, the boys and girls will have plenty of time to do their homework.
