I The Calgary Herald lulls Bennett "the only oth-er man who could carry, the riding." .When tho party comes down to admitting such a thing as that, it looks goon for Van Wart.- The Liberals had half-a-dozen men In whom they could rcoose confidence to carry Calgary for the government.

Inconsistency bus always been one of tho leading characteristics of the Conservative parly leaders, but thfe latest move of joining bands with Bourassa and shouting loyally at the same time Is surely the limit.

Why? i The Conservative-Nationalist Alliance ally themselves with the party who are avowedly an'tl-Dritish, anti-Imper- ial, -solely national.

But tbe Conservative party, of which R.L. Borden Is the leader, and suoh loyalty professing men as C. A. Magrath, Col. Sam Hughes, R.'B. Branc-tt, and oth- ers, ere menrberB, are partnsrs with Bourassa, Lavergne, Gilbert and Cous- ineau, the union candidate in Wright. These men of the Conservative party boast of their loyalty, and profess to epposa reciprocity fon patriotic grounds, it Is their whole argument, but yet for advantage they alliance which makes their words oorisy, Is something that the unbias- ed patriot cannot understand. Tli-aae Conservative loyalty specialists can- not deny the alliance with the Na- tionalists. It Is official. The party recognizing Nationalist conven- tions and candidates, appearing on a common platform with the Nationalist leaders and in every way working hand !n glove with these Separatists, these anti-British.. Mr. uagratb, for Instance, is in Just as close an alli- ance with Bourassa aa Borden is, ton both hold re-sponslble positions in tho party, the former as chairman of the Qarty caucus at the House of Com- mons, and the latter as tbe party leader in the House. And Borden is In 'ust as close an alliance as the Conservatives of Wright wh! attended the joint Nationalist-Con servative convention, and helped to nominate a Nationalist, as the joint candidate.
