The Speech from the Throne in in the -usual platitudes which are fashionable in these deliverances, anil the present one does not differ in this particular trora its preleces- Bora. It deals, as is the accepter! ciutom, with the past, and touches on the future in respect to the trend of legislation. The item oi particular Interest is the reference to the tariff, and the spirit in which this policy will be handled by the Government leaves no doabt. In this re- spect It has with anticipation in the particular regard credited the Government towards the tariff policy. The Speech from the Throne accepts the necessity of the revision of the Customs' tariff, but it clearly opines that such revision is not expected to be made in trie way of reduction. This ie amplified In the statement that in such revision regard must be paid to the necessities of revenue, and as well that the principle of protection to Canadian labor and legitimate Canad- ian industries, including agriculture, which has prevailed for more than forty years in this country must be consistently maintained. Thns it is The tariff policy of the Government. as outlined In the Speech from the Throne, guilefully seeks to rub off the bard edgea of the protective policy hy welting to add au emollient. With all the ancient wisdom associated with the nursery, it strives to put the nec- essary jam in the powder "In seeking to, palliate its .tariff policy the delightfully vague statement that the Cnitoms' duties should be' Do hlgner than is essential to ensure good stand- ards of living among our working peo- ples (the sop to the working peoples cannot be and to retain and Bake possible the normal expansion of the industries in which they find Ingenious, but at the tame time ingenuous! But lite the letter "s" this "essential" is an un- known qua ity, for who can decide what it is? The tariff wilderness in which the country has been wandering for the past forty is, according to the Government, u enunciated ia the Speech from the Throne, to be travel- led by the Government, in the fervent belief, that there is to be found there the manna and rock to sustain the water from the the multitude. The footsteps in the Bands of the time of forty years are to be re-trodden, tak- ing to heart the wisdom of the poet that seeing them will be tha inspira- tion to "take heart again." We see in the Speech from the Throne the re- of the Government to remain en- trenched behind the walls of a pro- tective taritt. JOHN BULL AS A TRUE SPORT. In alluding to) the serious troubles With which the Motherland is today confronted, the Journal ot Commerce humorously remarks that the thing that is causing sleepless nights in England is none ot these. "England is worried today because of the presump- tion of some of her children abroad. Encland didn't worry when these children presumed to be able to light in the great war as well and success- fully as Englishmen. She welcomed and praised them. Today, however, young people are presuming to a point that is audacious. They are daring to whip England In the field of effort -in which she thought herself supreme. In whatever other field she might be challenged, England could probably stand up before the world W cricket, cricket as it is played at Lord's or the Kennington Oval, where the youth and beauty of the Old'.Land assemble from time to time to observe the prowess of the heroes of the bats and stumps. Eng- land's crack club, the "M.C.C." haa ienl out a ,strong team to Australia, and theae athletes have again and again been almost the Australians are beating the En llghmcn at their own lame tinder tl Southern Cross, Canadians have ha tho presumption to go over to Sco laud nnd beat the crack curlers ot th North." It must be confessed that, in spl of tho shafts of good humor levell( at Old Kngland over the defeat of hi crack cricket team, ia taking th defeat somewhat seriously, and doubt Sandy in Scotland Is meditatin mournfully. But none the less It ma be taken u granted that they are U ing their defeats In the good old-fas! ioned spirit of British sport. Th much is in evidence in the comment made as they refer to the success t the Australians 'In that game of n tional worship, cricket. The London Times takes up th failure of the English team to "brin back the ashes" editorially. In a three matches which the Australian won, it says, there ia no blinking th fact that the all-round play of th Australians reached a higher stand ard than that of the English Eleven "With one exception our batsmen have not realiied the hopes, not tc say the great expectations, that fol lowed them when they left this conn try for the Dominion; the bowling ha not shown the gtniua that is needed to overcome the excellence of Austral ian wickets, and it haa handicap- ped by too many mistakes in the field. Possibly the illness of Hearne the loss ot the toss in all three matches, and the rain that fell dur- ing the natch at Melbourne, gave our men the worst ot what luck there was. But, ao. the Australians were unquestionably the better side, and deserved to win the rubber. Thai is as it should he. They have won it before, and will again, to the great profit of cricket, and the gen- eral good of the best ot games." Concluding the Times pays the fol- lowing to the Dominions: 'Both in cricket and football It mnst always remain a great feat when one of the Dominions defeats the Mother Country, coMidering the much er number of players that they have to draw upon. But, if we did not know It before from the experience of prev- ious Test Matches, the war showed us how it is they do It They are a magnificent fighting stock, these brothers of ours beyond the ten, and they play, aa they fought in France, and at Gallipoli, to to win like gentlemen." We cannot but adtatre the true spirit ot aport ahown in Great Britain and the way the people there take their defeats in the Held of sport. We can well echo the lofty sentiments and, as of the same atock, emulate that splendid spirit which makes for true sport and distinguishes the true sportsman, that of sailing under i feat, not aeekinf for excuses, and gi ing the other fellow, even though b has beaten us, the credit ot havln played the better game.
