Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIOGC, ALfefcftTA. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY M, 1107. jjS1 I I Snapshots at the Legislature Edmonton, Fob. in u! there no flag flying above the while the Legislature IB roused from food routine to oratorical pyrotochines. The leader of the Op- position provoked the outbreak this week with his national flag resolution. According to the loader of the Oppo- sition, sedition and treason are spreading apace in Alberta because the minister of education has not is- sued an arbitrary shall be loyal." The government has nev- er had occasion to impeach the loyal- ty of any class of'citizens in the province. The citizens of .Alberta who emigrated from European coun- tries came here', because they believ- ed they could" enjoy a larger measure of personal liberty and material pros- perity than in any other .country. Loyalty is sentiment based upon per- sonal liberty, civil and religions, and roof of the school buildings, when the call for South Africa came these people" were as eager to serve the King OK the. native byrn. "Such a said Mr, Roscnroll, "is un-British and lacks the fair play v.-hich is the boast of the Jvrnpire, ''Loyalty springs fro freedom." Several other .members spoke on the resolution. lion. Jlr. 'Cashing pointed out that the initial expendi- ture involvf-d in the resolution would be nearly The pre- mier pointed out that the passing of sue.1 a law would involve a penalty i r non-compliance, and the second state of that kind of loyalty would be worse than that complained of by the leader of. the Opposition. The government of Alberta had no inten- as patriotic AS the hou. member lor High Eiver. The department oTedii' cation with its force of inspectors, teachers and Normal school is entire- ly Canadian in sentiment and sys- tem. "in Lethbridge, I might state, the national iiag does float over our schools, and there is no compulsion about it. he said- in conclusion, "is a sentiment, but it must spontaneously nn'd not be forced. And I believe the depart- ment of education can- obtain better results by following thin amend- ment than the example, set by Mani- toba." cannot be enforced by .arbitrary la ws j of making the of or imposed insolent shibboleths. ihe of the province a yoke or an incubus. Mr, BoyJo taunted Mr. Mr. Robertson's speech support that, his resolution would not teach loyalty but .impose it as they do in. Russia. The leader of the Opposition in the.role Czar was too humorous even for the actor himself. Gretit interest manifested in the attitude of Mr. Hiebert, who is one of those foreigners, stigmatized by his leader 'as setting up an im- pprium in imperio. In tangled and sentences the member for Rosebud supported the resolution and {the premier's amendment there- Jap Cr-lony to ha established near lo- Hlcecl exterior apearance of his resolution to fly the Hug ovt-r the public .schools of the province was unfortunate in many of its ref- erences, ilo impeached the loyalty find patriotism of every-settlor in Albr-rla except ".the Canadian born. lie said that new races were coming into thc province in thousands and forming separate colonies, und even some of them refused to organize or accept thc public school. This state- ment brought it chorus of queries for an example. This. wa-Y where the leader of the Oposition turned white- Hvt-red, and said he was referring to Uvc News Boiled Down World Events Fresh from the Wire Condensed into Para- tMUMIIIIIMIlimi Removal We are now located two doort of of Commerce and are pre- pared to do ill kinds of graph Form.

Ruther- Housc that there bt-r for Cleiche.n. ford informed the was no section of the province that had re'fuscd .to support the public school. Mr." Robertson was unfortunate in his reference to the teachers of Al- berta. One cannot think that the leader of the Opposition was con- scious .of his impeachment of the teaching body of this province. He stated that the schools of Alberta were lamentably lacking .in teaching and stimulating patriotism. For this statement the member, for High Riv- er had to cross swords with the mem- of UK; flajr appealing to the plastic imaginations of youth. He was op- posed to any compulsion in teaching patriotism and pointed out that Eu- ropeans settled here had fled from such'conditions and come to Canada where they found peace. The resolution to make it compul- sory to fly the flag was amended to make it advisable. In this form it was adopted by the House.
