The Ancient Oi-dcr of Foresters WI(.L HOLD A DANCE ill K. of P. Hall TONIGHT : Oance^from 9 till 2. ' CAR ALL ROUND CITY Qentf .ti.0O^......Extra Lady 2&c ly contribution of fifty millions a year? Such are the views of Mr. Wonel Curtis and his fellow enthusiasts of the Round Table. What is , more to tho .point, such are the vl^ws of Lord Curzbn, Lord Milner aind Bonbr Law. members of the inner war cabinet i who have a very high Idea of the duty ' of tho colonies toward the Empire, and such are the views of Sir Edward Carson, who loathes home rule' so much that he has kept Ireland out of it for the last five years. What Parliament cannot help observing is that when Premier Borden goes to the Imperial Conference he sticks his head into a den .of the fiu-osf old crusted high Tories that England has seen In Cabinet for the last ten years. They belong to the good old high-blndlne Tory type which built up the Empire in the eighteenth century, incidentally losing the United States of Amerlda by the ripeness of their opinions. Mr. Lloyd George is a restraining influence, but, of course. Premier Lloyd George can't be with Premier Borden to protect him all the 'time. They'll find him and get at him some day when David Lloyd George isn't looking. Besides, Premier Lloyd George would probably side with them anyway! The question Parliament is asking is, will Premier Borden be able to stand up to them or will- they put it in his eye? They are great persuaders over ttiel-e In Westminster. The last time Premier Borden went to a conference.in England he cnme back with three dreadnoughts in his head-put there by Winston Churchill, who has since blown up. When Premier Borden couldn't put his Canadian special contribution policy over, he was so enraged that the Niobe and the Rainbow were not only dismantled, but the tenders for the Laurier navy were dropped in the waste basket, with the result that when the war broke out Canada was in tho humiliating position of having no ships either to defend herself with or to help the ,Mother, Country, Premier. Borden ^weiit back on his favorite doctrine of letting well enough alone by making it a great deal worse. Pessimists on .both sides of the House view with alarm the fact that Premier Borden will be the only front rank statesman from overseas present at the conference. Sir Louis Botha, foreseeing, a dilemmai perhaps does not appear for South Africa, but sends a deputy, who can always back out of a tight hole by saylng-that he must consult his principal. Premier Hughes, having failed to deliver thr goods-that is to say, having failed to piit conscHpitlorl across in good old Australia-will also', be among those absent. He will send a proxy to Lon-dort'and stay (tit home to mind his own business,'which at this moment is to hang on to his Job by the skin of his teeth. Australia Is very, very British-perhaps more British than Canada-but not British.enough to do what Premier Hughes wanted to do. With Australia and South Africa represented at the conference by deputies, Canada and New Zealand will br the only overseas states to send plenipotentiaries. The chances are that Premier Borden will be morje plenipotentiary than his comrade of New Zealand, which is a democratic country and very insistent that its Premier should consult the iieople first and .make his answers afterward^. Premier Borden, on the other hand, has developed a habit since the war began of doing things first and explaining or neglecting to explair them afterwards. Premier Border does a lot of governing by order-ln-council, which, of courser is the good old Tory way of doing it. By oder-in-council, we have his National Registration movement, which aims to mark time until the Government can see what happens. By brder-ln-coun-cll, we also have Sir George Perley Overseas Minister of Militia, the first Canadian Cabinet minister we have seen fit to keep In London since Confederation fifty years ago. Sir George Perley, as Overseas Minister of Militia, marks a change in our constitution which may be epochal. Sir George Perley's office in Victoria street is only, three or four blocks away from Downing street. He Is, therefore, in close touch with the Imperial Government physically and, if repprts be true.Mn-'oven closer touch flplrltually. Sir George has be come saturated .With the London at mosphere and>ia^ow very.vJVBry-English, which Is the most;hatwal metamorphosis lif the %oria'f6f'.-* gentleman who was born Inv'the United States. Sir George is one of those Calgary, Feb. 1.-In true plebeian fashion, the Hon. T. W. Crothers minister of labor, sat in his � sKirt sleeves in his sitting room' at the Palllser Hotel this ^morning. He arrived from the east sliortly after nine o'clock to meet the delegation of mine operators and miners, but owing to the train from the south beinfe over a couple of hours late, and the men's representatives consequently not having put in an appearance, no conference was held during tho forenoon. A meeting is being arranged tor this atternoon when both sides of the vexed question will be fully discussed with the minister. The majority of the representatives of the operators were on hand, but as It is'the Intention of Mr. Crothers to hear the men's views first the. operators, outside of an Informal chat with the minister, had to content themselves with waiting for the arrival of the men's .train. Among the operators that were in attendance this morning were George Kellaclf, of the McGlllivray ,Cpal Company, Coleman; R, S. McKibbln, also of the McGliilvray company; O. S. ' Whiteside, International Coal company, Coleman; C. J. Tompkin'S. Franco-American coal company, of Prank; R. M. Young and W. R. Wilson, of the Crows' Nest Pass Coal Company, Fernie; J. Howard, Canada West Coal 'Company, Taber; A. H. Reid,:-Chinook Coal Company, Lelh-brldge'i R. d.'DIennen, Hllloreat Coal Company; M. R. Morrow, Canmore doal Company, John Shanks, Brazeau Coal Co., Nordegg; and L. Stockett, representing Baiikheud and Leth-bridge interests of the 0. P. R. Pending the arrival of the men tho dperalors naturally refused to discuss tho situation when approachef" by a representative of The Herald,, but the Hon. T. W. Crothers in the' course of an .interview expressed, much' optinll6in;'as to tho outcome of the conference that will take place this afternoon. "I am confident that an amicable agreement will be reached," he remarked, "and that this will be satisfactory to all concnrnod." Asked what the government purposed doing if matters were not adjusted at the conference Mr. Crothers replied that he was not in a poaition at the moment to say what course would be adopted. "Thn government," he said, "thoroughly appreciated the gravity of the situation." "Person-BUy."'he said "I have every reason to believe that all differences will be settled this afternoon." From what tho operators stated all the mines with the exception of some of those at Lethbrldge hart rcKiimed work temporarily pending a final ' settlement of the dispute. Mrs. F. W G. George, who has been visiting Mrs. G. H. Harmon, returned today to her home in Macleod. Lieut. E. Skelton, Corporal J. Wallace and Bombardier Blaln of the 78th Battery have returned from taking a course In bayonet lighting in Winnipeg.   * � The tea which wis to .have been held at the home of Mrs. Cobbledick by the W.M.S. of Wesley church on SatiUi'day afternoon has. been , �postponed on account of the severe weather.   * The regular meeting of th?. Mathe-sis Club was held yesterday at the Y. M. C. A.. but the attendance was, small owing to the severs cold. The program was in charge of the litera-tJire department and a splendid talki on "Julius Caesar", was given by Mr.J R. H'. Dobson of tfie High 'school. Tea' was Sierved.to the members and their guests at the close of the program.  The Daughters of the Empire were in chargp pt the Hudsonjs Bay, tea room yesterday afternoon, and in spite of the cold weather served tea to a large! number. Mrs. Geo. Stacey was hostess of a small party coimpli-mentary to her guest, Mrs. Hogarth of Cranbrook. Mrs. P. W. Downer was assisted by Mrs. H. W. Meecb and Mrs. J. Vlftue. / � � 0 Forty members of the 78th battery were entertained In the auditorium of the Y.M.C.A. last night by the members of the Art Needlework club. It was a most' enjoyable evening, music and games formilng the entertainment! i'he program consisted of solos by Miss Ivy Dawson, Miss Izy Gordon and members of the battery, recitations by the battery boys and instrumental numbers by Mrs. R. W. Long. In addition to the soldiers there were present the husbands of the hostesses and fifteen young ladies, each hostess having invited one. A d^icions supper was served by the ladles. A very pleasant evening was closed by singing "God Save the Kln^, after which the battery boys gave three cheers and a tiger for the ladies for their very kind hospitality. On Tuesday night at No. 1 Pirehall,, a pleasant evening was enjoyed by the members of the department and friends In honor of Thomas and Rob-' ert Hardy who left yesterday to join the naval volunteers' division at Esquimau. P. W. Downer, naval recruiting officer for Lethbrldge was present and presented each of the boys .with a wrist watch from Chief Hardy. Besides these they were the recipients of numerous other presents, Including a writing cabinet from the members of their class at 'Wesley Sunday School Following the presentation the party, enjoyed an informal dance. On Monday evening the boys and girls of the Central School entertained the departing volunteers, ^hile nearly all the pupils of the' schools were at the train yesterday to wish thera God Speed. lTIVE WADDING' B�tt�rtl%�n plMt�rs or poultices for- colds and all manner of - achei and painB.

Galbraith was'the'hostess of an Infoi--mal thlmbic tea for Mrs. G. L. Vroo-man of Calgary; M^s. J. W. McNicol's j guest. 'At theauniial-nieeting, of the-Local Council of Women held iu tile Y. on Mon..afternoon the flection of officers resulted as follows': "President, Mrs. G. Wi Robinson; .yfee-president, Mrs. Whiddington; tot+espondlig secre-tary, Mrs. A. Smith; recording secre-' tary. Miss Bawden;'treasurer, Mrs. E. R. J. E'orster. The convenors for the standing commitees were all re-elected virith the exception of the laws coVnmittee.-where Mrs. B. N. Hlgin-botham was elected to replace Mrs. Robinson. � The affiliated chair was taken by Mrs. R. B. Skeith. The affiliated societies were well represented by their delegates, twenty-four ladies being present. The meetihg was -opened with silent prayor, followed by the routine business. The annual reports of the secretary and treasurer were read and adopted. Mrs. Skeith gave a short talk on some of the avenues of usefulness open to the Local Council at this time when Red Cross and Pat riotic work takes us such a large part of the women's time. ' Interesting reports were read from the various affiliated' societies, viz: Nursing Mission, I.O.D.E., Mathesls Club, Women's Christian Temperance Union; Knox Ladies' Aid,' Knox Mis sionary Society, Wesley Ladies' Aid, St. Augustin's �ft'omen'S Auxiliary and the Civic Club. These risports covered the year's work -and proved what a large field the women's work of Lethbrldge covers. A resolution from Olds was read, asking this local council to cooperate with them in having a provincial conference of women called shortly and in order to get as many women as poslble from the rural districts tliat such meeting be held outside the larger cities. This was endorsed by this Loct^l * Council. The most important matter for consideration this year has been the drafting of amendments to the laws of Alberta pertaining to women and children to be submitted, to the provincial' legislature. Lethbrldge Local Council is to have the drafting of the bill on Equal Parental Rights. "The council also placed itself on record� as desiring to have a woQian placed on the board of censors of movinK pictures at Edmonton, with a^view t� stricter censorship. staunch democrats, quite prevalent in the United States, who dearly love a country that can make thera knights and baronets; Sir. George is, said to be working for a peerage. i Knowing Sir George's tendencies, Parliament does not reckon.,on hip acting as a brake �on- Premier Borden's Impulsiveness. ' We may take lit for granted that five kreiat' mind's -Jjloyd George, Milner, Curzon, Carson and Balfour - wiH .qoiicentrate their argument on one lone .premier from overseas.

But thia is 'hot Parliament's eixperienco of Premier Borden.

Not to menti6n,the treasure of blood Canada has spent,.there will be a national debt of staggering proportions, taxes such as run not in the Ineiniory of man, and interest charges and a pension list that will aggregate onis httndred million dollars a y^ar All told, it will take about three hundred and fifty million dollars a year to see us through. Some have alluded to this as a man's burden on a boy's neck, but Canada cheerfully bears' it as the price of her duty to the British Empire.
