The decision .of the Board of Con- ciliation, .which sat to go into the dis- pute between the employees and man-' agcmeht of tho Canadian Natior.ol'' Hallways in regard to the "Hanna confirms the principle ot civil rights as a possession of the citizens o( Canada employed iu a national util- ity. In 'this respect it is one th.u is eminently satisfactory, in safeguard- ing what are democratic rights. If. the principle embodied in the order had obtained; if the nationalization of public utilities, as a progressive policy to bo enlarged in the Dominion, we should have had the spectacle of a very largo number of capable indi- viduals being: debarred from tnkmj; Interest in the policies of the country which a seat in Parliament or In the Legislatures would afford. Tho majority report is a vindication of these 'rights. In issuing his orders debarring em- rloyees ol the National Railways from taking that active part in politics which the election to parliamentary legislative seats would conVej-, the Chiirman of the Board of Man- agemenLof the National Railways was inclined lo be too punctilious In fol- lowing the letter rather spir- it cf the pronouncement ot Sir Hobeit I Scout orffuntiatloBS prorldv and wek to en ecu rune tha very beat qualities In boys. The motto which Boy Scouts and spirit which influences them are such aa make thorn "aluablo to the community. From tho very character ot the organization, with all that tho Scout law Imposes, such as the readiness to otwy.uud act under orders ami to assume responsibility, there is imbued in the the first and fundamental principle of u tnu education. With the acceptance of this principle thert follows that cheerful and obliging spirit which is of tho distinguishing features of the Hoy Scouts. The characteristics which are sought to be Implanted In the minds of the Boy Scouts are such as have proved their immeasurable worth In the war. The services the Scouts rendered then are. too woH known to need repetition. Those very .qualities, with the re- sourcefulness their training lends to, give them a value individually and nationally In, a measure which, pos- sibly, no.other boy organizations have. In the welfare of the boys the Scou movement Is a very valuable adjunct The training is such that it "cannot bu1 conduce to food citizenship. The Scout movement, in the valm placed on It, has become a work movement. Everywhere in the clvi ed countries of the world the Scouts have a place, linked together' in the common spirit that guides them. When comes to the need of funds to furth- er the movement in city there should be a willing response. Do You Know? TODAY'S QUESTIONS 1. What U origin of phrase "Men of the S.

ANSWERS In the British Museum is to bo Lemon Extract Was THE DEMAND FOR HIGH TARIFF. The Winnipeg Free Press gauges the present politHal situation when it gays that to anyone familiar with the way things are worked In Canada it has been "pretty evident for some time that forces are mustering for a mighty effort to boost the tariff. There hag been, it observes, a strong propaganda going on for some months In support Bordeq, when Prime Minister, at the L, protection, and those identified with tiro, the railroads were taken over j ]'t JefieVeTan'ifthey by the Government, that political pat- ronaga and political interference -would be eliminated. That was a sound principle, but it cannot be in- terpreted that the election of. em- to Parliament or to Legisla- 'would thereby Inject that evil which .is sought to be kept National Railways. On the contrary, the acceptance of this would lead to iuipiclon that the National Rail- ways can be interfered with, by poli- ticians for political purposes. This hardly be confiding to the pub- lic. 14 the experience of private rail- as the C. P. R., in which employees hold and 'have held seats in representative assemblies, it has not been shown in the permission al- lowed that there'is any apprehension that these opportunities would be used for political interference or patron- age in regard to this particular rail- way. This should apply to tho Nation- nl Railways. Tha spirit which inspires the em- ployees of any concern should he that of loyalty to it. This is ono of tho ethics insisted on by the C. P. R. It is like-wise sensed by the employees of the National Railway in which, in ilje negotiations that have taken placo the "Hanna it was con- ceded by the employees without reser- vation that the unstinted and continu- ous loyalty by the employees was a matter of absolute importance. The fact that the election of an employee to a seat in a representative assembly ahould not be taken as an act of dis- loyalty to the railway was well sensed. To insinuate that thia might lend it- to political exploitation of the rail- ways is in the circumstances a great deal too apprehensive. After all the of a railway employes depends wore on the public than any particular body of railway men, and the public 111 tu6 CE56 of LI national utility can be relied on to safeguard the interest et thoir particular property. Mr. Hanna was, without doubt, guid- ed by the best of motives in issuing bis order. To detach the National Railways from anything of political Interference and patronage is a prin- ciple that should be rigorously employ- ed; but in being too jealous to guard ajainst this, there is always the dang- er of overstepping the short distance which is said to lie between the sub- lime and the ridiculous. show for their belief, that they have had considerable success In affecting public opinion. The contention has hitherto been, in the face of an obvious volume of sentiment in favor of re- duction, that it Is merely desired to retain the present tariff -with, perhaps, some slight modifications downward; and much has been made of the un- reasonableness of those who object to a tariff regarded by Its friends as ex- tremely moderate. With the increasing vigor, of the protectionist campaign and the apparent rallying to the cause of a good many interested, the tone is changing from a desire to hold what they have to the obtaining of what they have not now but hope-to acquire. This note, remarks .the Winnipeg. paper, will be sounded with growing persistence, in the coming weeks while the tariff Is being remodelled.. Those industries which think they could do with a higher tariff upon the imports that compete with their goods join in the clamor for "adequate pro- tection." Mr. Meighen, 13 his address at Petermoro, declared that he was in favor of just enough protection and no more; but there is no guarantee in that formula that the Interests of the consuming public will be safeguarded. "Who is to decide what is enough? In the face of the present outlook there appears the strong need of the supporters of a low tariff to stand to- gether against the reactionary element who will count it an and will weicome any want of cohesion in those opposed to a high tariff, as something whereby they might profit to push the tariff as high as the oppor- tunity will allow. With the tariff as an issue, the outlook when Parliament meets will become decidedly Interest- ing. In this respect, it is well surmised that the result of the election in West Peterboro will have considerable in- fluence in the encouragement H twill give the Government should its can- didate win out, in the way the tariff policy will be handled. sculptures dating'from B.

Ho finally admitted that he had. purchased the extract from Ibey for the sum of J3, and that Gros Ve-n tre Boy was -with him at the time. He also stated that on the morning of the 2Sth Ibey had offered to give him j to keep his mouth shut. Crying Head deposed, when the case came up before Magistrate Barker on i the 28th, that he came to Cardston with Gros Ventro Boy and went to the store of John Ibey. Defendant, he said, went out for the eitraet and on returning produced It from his hip pocket. The Indians then left the store and went on their way home. At the end of the lane- they started drink ing the extract with Gros Ventre Boy taking the most of it. Gros Ventre Boy in his evidence said that he went to the store with his wife and Crying after they had been to Dr. Stacpool's to get some medicine for wife who was ailing, tho extract was bought and they re- turned to.their, home at Bull Home LEAGUE Or NATIONS UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS SAYS HON.

Seiberti presided at the lun- :heon and other speakers were Sir James Lougheed, minister of the In- terior; C. A. Magrath, member of the joint international commission, who made an earnest plea for more adeq- uate pay for the surveyors, and Dr. B. Devllle, surveyor-general who gave an interesting review of the work of his department. The speech of Sir James Lougheed was a sturdy appeal for optimism re- garding Western Canada. He saw no reason to doubt a population there ultimately of fifty million ot people when he reviewed the resources of the west and compared that Country with the United States and its progress. Sir James claimed'that Canada had distinct advantages over the United States in the possibility of rapid de- velopment, for, when the states en- tered upon this pha'sft.. the present day advantages of publicity and trans- portation were not available.

Mr. Ibey gave evidence denying the statements of. the Indians. He also denied that he had offered Crying Head to keep his mouth shut. He said that this Indian had attempted to eitract- from him to keep quiet. The bottle of extract he had admitted to the constable that he had sold was sold to Mr. Bullock, and he produced a b.aok with the .item dated Jan. 26th.
