It would be but mockery and the part ot a hypocrite to profess indignatlcu at Prussian dishonor, and all the while to,give to Itobert Rogers a place and a 'power in the councils ot ^Canada." People's Forum THE CASE OF SERbT. GOBELLE CITY.fiHOULD .PROTECT,--GAS RIGHTS FOR FUTURE Cornraissioner Freeman projected ftn important question into' the discussion of the Grace mine purchase pronosal when he asked whether it mifrht not, be possible that the city would have its own gas supply by the time the present gas. francliise expires. Thb Dossibilities contained in the suggestion should not be overlooked, fhf Herald understands that the city" of Edmonton either has se- , cured or "is endeavoring ^to secure (rom the Domfnlon government a gas �Rnd oil lease which will insure the capital a supply of gas. the understanding being that the government will reserve" the lease for the city until such time as the city is ready to flrill and pipe the gas to the city con-Bmners. If this is so, Lethbridge Should look alive and endeavor to ee'cure a similar concession. TAKE A PLEBISCITE ON MINE PURCHASE Mayor Hardie^ like Brace's spider. Is going to try again. He rather fayorE! a plan to submit to the rate payers a proposal to purchase the Grace mine for ?45,000 and no frills attached. Before the bylaw was sent to Ed-nionfou for approval the Herald urgeil the council to submit it to a plebiscite ot the people, feeling that they should have some voice in deciding whether ft bylaw for the whole proposition ehould be submitted or a bylaw for the purchase only. It cost ?125 to nubmit the bylaw for the approval of the. Board of Utilities. The Herald's course, had it been followed, would probably have avoided at least a part cf this expenditure. However, the Herald would like to Bee the ratepayers given a chance to vote on the purchase Question divorc-' ed from the larger expenditure advo-catied by the mayor. It would be as well to learn whether the ratepayers believe the property to be worth the CONSERVATIVE PRESS SILENT ON ROGERS SCANDAL Bob  Rogers, he of the Carter contract deal, rose in the House of Commons yesterday and proceeded once mare- to try,-to. clear his skirts by, Im-pu?ii:ng the character of Mr. Justice Gait; of Winnipeg. That he succeeded we; very much doubt. He "may  succeed witb narrow party organs of the Toronto. News stripe, .but with the raak and file of Canadians he stands convicted /on a charge which would be^ seribtts enough in any case, but doubly sp when a minister of the crown is implicated. Comment of eastern papers is very strong against Rogers,; and especially against his accompanying, in his official capacity. Sir Robert Borden to the Imperial conference in London. "The prime minister's sense of personal honor," said the Ottawa Citizen (independent) on Friday, "must com pel him to protect the crown by re tiring Mr..Rogers until he has cleared himself of the verdict brought in by Mr. Justice Gait." Under the caption, "A Question of Canada's Honor," the Toronto Globe of Saturday has this to say: - "The stain of it would have been black enough, and the scandal of it shameless enough, had the men in volved been private citizens and the whole transaction a private affair. But it is the government that is impllcat od. It is the common honesty, every day integrity, the character and repute for ordinaiT truthfulness of a minister ot the crown that is impugned. "And it is by a lustlce of the court tha{ this most serious accusation is made, deliberately made in writing, and repeated over and over again, an accusation admittedly based on sworn evidence before the justice himBelf, serving as a commissioner appointed by a provincial government to investigate ^ grave charges of malfeasance in connection with a great provincial work, a public work with which the very minister who Is now accused, and who now boasts that he recommended the commissioner for appointment to the bench, had officially and directly to do. "There is only one minister of the valuation placed upon it, and whether they consider, it a necessary purchase 1 crown in Canada who answers that To the HMltor of the Daily Herald: Dear Sir,-^A great deal has been _, said and written re the Khaki League the and returned soldiers'and Sergeant Gobelle in particular. It was my fortune to know Sergeant Gobelle very well previous to hi,s enlisting and serving, in the trenches in France. " J \ Some few years ago 1 was in charge of the mechanical department of- the Royal Collieries, Ltd., andi during a part of the time I was there Sergeant-Gobelle worked under me as an engineer and 1 say without any hesitation whatever that he performed bis duties .as an engineer at all,times in a' manner creditable to' himseif and to the satisfaction of the company. Also that he ieft of his own free will and accord with a clear record , behind him. I wish to state that I have been asked regarding Mr. Gobelle both on the street and by phone, and I take this means ot . setting this matter right before the public. It Is charged th^t he .iJUmed a boiler and was discharged by the R. C. Co. This, I say. Is absolutely false and must have been founded by some person fpr a selfish reason. I see in your paper under the head Ing, "Is the Khaki League dead or sleeping?" that Mayor Hardle told Gobelle he was physically unfit for such a responsible Job as the hospital job. This I cannot understand and if so there certainly Is a great deal of inconsistency somewhere. I understand tliat Mr. W. Uoyd sent for him (by the mayor's orders) and offered him a job as assistant at the hospital steam plant at the magnificent sum of fSS per month, but he only had to work 17 hours per shift on a little'over 12%c. an hour- surely not physically unfit, rather*] mentally unfit. Tet "We must not be too hard. Mr. Gobelle told me that Mayor Hardle was very good to him in the way of finding work, for him at odd jobs, though the pay was small. In conclusion, I wish to express my views on this. That it is too bad there is not more effort put forth for the welfare of the returned veterans. They give up their all to fight for king, country and homes and we derive the benefit while they return wounded and .unfit. We should do all in our power to give them at least as remunerative a job as they left when going to the front, and I say we should cry for, shame on the man who would be so mean himself a*''to start false rumors about burning boilers and discharges, etc. Just one more item, Mr. Editor, before closing. Mr. Gobelle holds an Alberta third class engineer's certificate (good tor 100 horse power) issued on the recommendation of Mr. Nat. Marshall, a provincial boiler inspector. This, Mr. Gobelle could not hold had be ever burned a boiler in Alberta. Thanking you in anticipation of seeing this in print, I remain, "Vours very truly,,  MAX DONALDSON, Coaldale, Alta., Phone Ri,-006.
