"If Bonar Law takes, .vie trust ho will, a national view and chooses men of tho greatest character and strength without respect to party, aod thus forms a truly national administration, If he uroves his patriotism by disre- garding all considerations, save na- tional danger, and national need, then he will succeed. If lie fails, we are willing to .confess that the outlook will bo dark indeed." Dally Mail Tho Dally Mail, referring to the part played by Bonar Law. in Tues- day's developments, says that all doiibts which had been cast on the stability of his adhesion to Lloyd George's program, was dissipated by his attitude at the conference of the Unionist member; of tho cabinet in the colonial offices during the after-, noon. j "He 'says tho Daily Mail.' "as firm a disposition as Lloyd George and carried his colleagues witli him." The Westminster Gazette, Tuesday, before the announcement of Mr. Lloyd George's resignation, said: "We need all sorts of men ia the governn-.snt mcnt which thev drew ur, declared! judgment ..and thrown to "the winds; all; thev desired the war should be! fear of consequences, and ihe. mis- carried on with tfce utmost rigor and; representation of his act.

In the meantime allow me to state or three of my convictions in regard to civic administrations. No commissioner should city help of any kind at any time in his own private business. Not even if he pays the city at current rates. So needless trips._should be taken at the City's ex- pense. a Commissioner re- turns from a necessary trip he should at once report to the ratepayers giving its a summary of its results and a .statement its cost. .Very truly youre, F.

A CHAOTIC SITUATION SAYS MORNING POST Tho Morning Post's, political Vprre- (pumlent says the political, situation is so chaotic that It can hardly be ex- pected that with the good for- tune Bonar Law Will be able to "form a ministry till after ranch trouble and delay. It is believed, the correspon- dent says, that ho has deferred A reply to the King's request that he should undertake to form a new government, till today. The correspondent fields: "Lloyd George's scheme for .a small, war council, with large executive pow- ers, Mr. Asquith, as prime minister, having the right to be present, but with 110 authority, either personally or through the cabinet, to interfere'with the council's day by day conduct of the war, was an honest eudeavor to put life and vigor Ibto the ministry, with- out the daugerii uud delays Insepar- able irotu a thorough reconstruction of the government.

But Ilate'pn Monday night some ministers, political colleagues of Mr. Asquith Grey, the Marquis of Crewe McKenna and Mr. Runelman are their chief and expressed their profound disagreement with Mr. Lloyd George's plan. They In turn threatened to resign If It was carried out, and McKenna and Runciman, in particular, vigorously objected to the including of Carson. In the cabinet. Once more Mr. Asquith wavered. The situation was canvassed yesterday; a'gaih the probabilities were explored, and it was thought, there was. more than a fighting chance of getting rid of the war secretary altogether. Heaco the statement in the Chronicle yester- day morning that, rather than consent to the setting up of a war council of which he was not the effective chair- man, Asquith would resign, and 'an- other statement, printed in the West- minster Gazette, that "Asquith has definitely declined the proposal, and that so far as he was concerned, there was no departure from his resolve."

RUSSELL OLIVER MINJO Shoe Dealers are Entitled to Higher Prices for Brands of Jacques Canter. THE MAPLE LEAF On a great many of our lines of Rubber Footwear there have, of necessity, been small advances in prices, for these Since the war the price of crude rubber has fluctuated, registering as much as 40% advance and then sagging -back almost to 1914 figures. But ocean and freight rates on it have insurance is away then there is the War Tax. Moreover, cottons used in rubber footwear are up 25% to chemicals 25% to dyes a good deal more than that, and labor is scarce and higher paid. All these items must be included in our costs. Our policy has been, and will continue to -To maintain fully the quality of each and every, brand of our rubber footwear, regardless of expense. To maintain, as long as we can, stability of prices to dealers, advancing just as little as possible considering the higher manufacturing cost If your shoe dealer asks you a little more for our rubbers, he is quite entitled to it. To his increased cost he must also get added profit to make up for his increased expense of doing business. r The public will find any increases we make on our brands of Rubber Footwear insignificant compared with the saving that the consistent use of Rubber Footwear accomplishes. The additional cost of our brands of Rubbers is, however, fully justified, because they are backed by the same reliable quality that has won popularity for these well-known THE MERC RUBBERS IANTS "JACQUES CARTIER" "MAPLE LEAP" "GHANBY" "DAISY" "MERCHANTS' "DOMINION" Canadian Consolidated Rubber Co.
