No government could avoid cri- ticism in peace (iaio and it is inliuitely more dUticult to govern a country dur- ing a war and immediately follow lot war. Thousands o! Individuals have closer relations with gowrnment pol- icy and administration than ever be- fore and to completely satisfy them all or a goodly part ot thtm is impossible, no matter whether the government be Union. Liberal or Conservative. Certainly our government is not botching tnlncs ci its enemies would like tie public to believe. U makes mistakes, that It has to correct, bui those are only to be expect- ed at a time when a government has to much to do of a nature that no oth- er government ever had to with. But how do we compare .with other ootmtrieat Tbe Utited lays claim to n deal of eificiency. Now where does it stand al this moment! It wbiad be-hardly possible for any Canadian paper to make such charges asclnit tie government Ottawa as the Buffalo Express makes the waVdepartmeat at Washington. For example? "Unpaid allotments; Midlers arriving home without a seat in 'pockets; Insurance ot men killed hi action'not pain; men two, three, sad ill montis in camps without re- ceiving a ot pay. In tha bureau Iot war risk insurance, correspondence regarding compensation claims Is six- ty Says behind." There appears to be a hopeless muddle in that bureau of war risk-'in- surance. Our plan of separation allow- ances and pensions wpnld seem to be working more satisfactorily than the American plan of insurance. Every American soldier was encouraged to insnre his life aa soon as he went on the payroll, the insurance rite for the soldiers IS per thousand. The premiums of the insur- ed soldiers were held out of their monthly pay. There have been about deaths in the army from casu- alties and disease, and almost all ot these men held government life in- surance policies. "The war depart- ment says the New Tork Tri- nroe, ''now- refuses to approve vouch- ers checks to. settle these death claims unless tie war riak bureau will certify To him in .every case that all the premiums have been paid in full. This 'is u absolute impossibility. The bureau would proceed Uworr that since'Uie preminms are automat- ically deducted from the soldier's pav, it is fair to assume that they have been paid In every case, but this does the auditor, who demands individual certificates.' filVfll'te months, perhaps yean be'fore the. tanile can be "unraveled aud beneficiaries oftte-inanred soldiers.receive thtLinsurance money which is their due And there are thousands ot clsrks In the war risk bureau! go yon tee, things are botched up a good deal worse in tie United States We can t excuse our AITEUKPIAY i TUESDAY, FEBIU'ANY i t. 19U' MIWP (From Our Ottn Comjpooijnt) .llVGRATH, Ttursday evening the Magrath Dramatic So- ciety, ander the direction ot Mr. Mc- Nullen. produced one ot the best American plays tver staged by local people.
