But facts are stubborn things and cannot be overcome by calling the other fel- low an Ananias. Bourassa was the .Tory's King Bee in Quebec in 1911. Beventy-five per cent of the Tory patronage distributors from that pro- vince were elected with Bourassa's iupport, and two members of the cab- inet at Ottawa today and three mem- of the as it was formed 'after the 1911 elections were Bpurassa men. were they taken into the government' if there was no alliance? -And why should a 'sup- Imperialistic party ally itaelf .with men 'who denounced Imperial- ism if it was not for political advan- tage? iBourassa, Monk, Nantel and Pelletier attacked 'Laurier as the lather a naval policy that would Canada's sons to fight for the Motherland.

MAKE DIRECT CHARGES OR CEASE TALKING Since it has bsen sfoown that when Conservatives build public buildings in Manitoba looting is sanctioned toy the party leaders, revenge is now be- ing sought and parliament buildings 3n Alberta and Saskatchewan, com- pleted and occupied for a number of -years, are suspected of being the fcasis of Liberal corruption. Natur- ally revengeful men are prone to in- sinuate recklessly, tout if they have any semblance of belief that there >-as corruption practised in the erec- tion of these (buildings, they should make their charges and have an in- vestigation. They are very iate in diking their insinuations, and the de- mand for an. enquiry now would be a f affection on ine Conservative oppo- sitions in the two provinces. What have they 'been doing all these years? Allowing robbery to be practised un- der their eyes and not. a murmur of iprotest. Maybe they were parties to the Alleged graft. This last minute awakening of our .Tory friends will not deceive any- fcpdy. Being ctugbt red handed In The torpedoing of vessels by Ger- many, of course ia no surprise, and the failure to make any attempt to save passengers is what is to be ex- pected from a nation of Germany's typo. The United States is really more concerned over the incident than any other nation. It is a delib- erate act of unfriendliness, made more emphatic by reason of the notes which have recently passed between the two) countries. What will Presi- dent Wilson do now?

Some of we Britishers are too anxious sometimes to criticise the nome authorities for failure to make headway during this war.

All hs asked was results. If the Hon. Robert was a wizard, here was a chance to prove it. After four months of concentrated effort, the Hon. Robert not only fail- ed to deliver the goods, but let loose a landslide. What kind of a wizard is what? Of course, there are plenty of ex- cuses. For instance, the Lieiitenant- Governor did not exercise a restrain- ing influence. For another instance, the election machinery had passed in- to the hands of the enemy. But ex- cuses are not what his colleagues ask- ed of the Minister of Public the chief dealer srvative JH-nealth, Col.

The women's cause in Russia made a big advance when the Council of Ministers approved the plan of the Minister of Education to throw the doors of certain universities to them. Mail advices from Pekin say that Capt.

There was a double drowning on HamAton hay when a motor boat, owned by Arnold Church, 331 James street north, and John Robert-son, 72 Lceming street, caught fire and cap- sized. These two were drowned. After looking over several sites for the Ontario hospital, Col.

MEN OF THE BELGIAN RACE OUTWIT THE RACE OF HUNS bicycle race was organized recently at Liege under the the title of the "Circuit dp, and permission was obtained from the German authorities for the cyclists to take a course which led near the Dutch frontier, without having to pro- duce their identity papers for the in- spection of the guanla, A hundred and fifteen young Bel- gians took 'part in the race, and the German sentries, ,in accordance with instructions, allowed them to pass unchallenged. dn nearing flitch1 territory, the cyclists unexpectedly dashed across Jrontlec. no more right to get bumped in Man- itoba than General von Kluck had to lose Paris. In short, war is what Genera! Sherman said it was, and de- feated generals can make no ex- cuses that will be accepted. Arabian Nighti As a matter of fact, tbe Honorable Robert put-up a very brilliant and strenuous campaign, although his friends refuse to look at it in that light As soon as he took hold, Dr. Simpson, the Jlanitoba organizer for the party, anil the repository of some of their darkest secrets, disappeared in the twinkling of an eye.. Sorrit Ar- abian Xights carpet whisked him off to the fighting front in Flanders, and there the Doctor found more peace than he was likely to find in Winni- peg. Contemporaneously, -also, with the Hon. Robert's appearance on the conflagration was according to rules and strictly in the interest of public safety. It was a hot letter Zebulon wrote, and consequently dangerous coinpany for any telegrams that might be 'lying being used here in the sense n? a recumbent po- sition. The nest phase of the campaign was the appearance of Judge Phippen, a seasoned veteran familiar with the ground, who was summoned from To- ronto to take part in the conflict. The Judge did "outside circulated among the high and mighty in the land, told stories, cracked jokes and interviewed chief justices on behalf of the persecuted Kelly. His opera- tions for some reason or other were not attended1 with success, but it can- not be said, that the Honorable Rob- ert overlooked any points. The C.N. R. toed the mark and all those who had received or expected to receive favors were obliged to do their bit. The Honorable Robert is a gallant and resourceful leader ami contests every inch. It Back Fired The third phase of the campaign was the Fullerton charges, and the verdict of the Perdue Commission thereon. Sir James Aikins and his more or less spotless associates said they would take the verdict of the people on this subject rather than the verdict of tbe Perdue Commission. They seem to have got it all right. They started out "to hang something on the but the people of Man- itoba had other ideas where it ought to be hung. To change the figure, they brought up their forty-two centi- metre gun, and it back-fired. The fourth and last phase of the campaign was the eleventh hour re- pentance of the Conservative party, and the pure-as-driven-snow platform they put together. They shot the Rob- lin crowd out faster than the whale did Jonah, but all these good works came too late. The Manitoba people took about as much stock in the plat- form as they did in the corporation, lawyer, pious and rich, who had been temporarily detached from -Federal politics as the leader of Gideon's band. It was a matter of comment that neither Sir James nor his lieu- tenant, Mr. Sharpe, were what you might call genuine altruistic. They had not dropped the substance for the shadow, Sir James having been promised the Lieutenant-Governor- ship, and Mr, Sharpe, one of the nine vacant places in the Senate. As they stood to gain, win or lose, Manitoba had no compunction about handing it to them good and plenty. The leader went down with the rank and slight accent on the word if ROYAL YEAST CAKES scene of action, certain telegrams In you please and Sir James and his lieutenant, will presently enter into theit- rewards, said rewards being much better than anything a party lost in the wilderness can offer them. From all of which it appears that the Robert fought a stubborn battle. It is no reproach of his that the stars were against him. When the dam breaks no one man can hold the flood back. It's too big a job even for Bob Rogers. Incidentally most of his hopes were swept away by the de- feat.'
