The civil service ^commission is responsible, only to Parliament, and can bo removed from office only by a two-thirds vote of the house. The achievement of this sweeping and vital reform in the conduct of C a n a da' 5 political and n at to:m1 affairs was announced by Sir Kotvrt Borden, who explained to the members of the press the order in council ju*t^ passed. The prime minister intimated that the action taken was in fulfillment of the government's pre-election pledge. It had been intended to institute the reform by simply taking ad-ran tage of the clause in the civil aer-rlce act of providing for the extension of the act as it relates to the inside service to any branch of the outside service through the medium of an order in council.

USE LAND FOR THE SOLDIERS The Dominion government should acquire lands on the Blood Indian He- p * serve for soldiers' settlement. It is an ideal location, close to railroads and settled commimitles. None of this land should be sold hf auction. It should be taken over by the government for the purpose we hare mentioned. ^ t LABOR SEEMS TO K OBTAINABLE ' Mr. D. A.

Meanwhile the government decided to effect' the reform practically, by the adoption of^ temporary regulations as an instruction to the civil service commission and to the deputy heads of departments. The new regulations provide that, as far as practicable, and under the discretion of the civil service commission, all appointments be. made according to the results of competitive examinations. In this connection any returned soldiers who have been honorably discharged from the service will be placed in order of merit ahead of all others who have likewise tried and passed the examinations. J All promotions shall be on merit only, on the recommendation of tne civil serrice commission and of the deputy heads of departments. In the cases of positions which statement made C. P.

People expect it to be not,as other governments were. So much Is expected of this new government that even if ij does a great deal better than the old type of government it Jttay suffer at the hands of those who w eapect a great deal more from it. The old type of government could promise and promise, but people rather expected many of the promises would not be fulfilled. Towards the Union government the attitude is different. The people expect it to carry out every promise and if it fails they will damn During the election campaign very definite assurance was given that the patronage system had been aboliehed. Following the elections criticism was aroused because some appointment* frere made along the 'old patronage illne. The government's election promise was consequently termed a camouflage. . But the government has abandoned patronage. Probably few people realized.-the full meaning of a de ap&tch from Ottawa which appeared 4fc the press last week but that despatch meant that patronage had been abolished. Pending the passing of an act of Parliament at the coming session giving permanent statutory effect to. the policy of the LJnion government in regard to the abolition of patronage in aU civil service appointments, an order in conacil has been passed defining and applying the policy through the medium of temporary angulations. In brief it is provided tjiat, from now on,.every appointment to the outside .service, including all -postal officials, custom and excise of-.-f|cers, public works, employees, messengers, sorters and in fact every person joining the federal civil service, Wren if only in a temporary capacity, shall'be made only with the approval and A.

Editor, Lethbridge Herald: - Dear Sir,-I read from your - issue of February 11th an articlo headed, Strong Indictment djf Mormon Loaders. The gentleman who gives out such information surely does not know anything about the Mormons or tho Mormon faith. Mr. Ferguson has to my knowledge visited Cardston oncu. And I presume he? has also visited other Mormon settlements. But never has informed himself about the people and thoir mode of life. Wo believe that the social side of man must keop pace with every other part to make a complete man. Mr. Ferguson states that our socials are conducted under false colors. That wo encourage them to undermine Canadianlsm. Canadian institutions and Christianity. Mr. Ferguson knows that he makes a false statement in this matter. It is certain from the above charges that all the Pharisees are not dead. And from the article in question, I learn that a convention of Fhariseos are in session, and on the recommendation of Mr. Ferguson, the Mormon question will receive at their hands some consideration. I hope their conclusions will be more manly than that of the Rev. Mr. Ferguson. I have found it to bo a good rule if you want to know the true worth'of a community go to the community itself. If .you wish to learn the true man go to that man's friends. If you go to ^ils enemies you will find just what you are looking for. Mr. Ferguson casts reflections upon the Mormon people. If Mr. Ferguson can find any better we would be pleased to 4earn of them. That we might improve. If Mr. Ferguson has so much good, why is it he does not flood this section of "Southern Alberta with missionaries to teach us better. Mr. Ferguson, knows better than to make the attempt. The polygamy question is a chestnut. But Mr. Ferguson and his kind want |*to stir up something. I would advise Mr. Ferguson to-come amongst us and [ pull the chestnuts out of the fire himself. It is well known that he has an agent in close proximity to Cardston. But he is one of those curs that will j lie to accomplish the ruin of the Mormon people. But they will fail. Fur: ther, the one who acts as agent owes every dollar he has to the Mormon people - Shame Mr. Ferguson says. Stealthly the astute leaders of the queer heresy. I suppose he means Mormon doctrine. I will venture the assertion that the Rev.. Mr. Ferguson does not know anything about Mormon doctrine. And is too bigoted to Investigate for himself. Mormon doctrine is my faith, and! care^not who the man may j>e, when he calls that faith heresy. 1 then must defend it. Mr. Editor, I wish to a&end our articles of'faith. .And 1 invite our Mr. Ferguson to read, mark, learn. Articles We believe in God the Eternal Father and in His Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. . - We believe that men will be punished for their own sins and not for Adam's transgressions. We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may he saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel Wjb..believe that the first principles and ordinances of the>gospel are: First faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; Sec- ond, repontonce; third baptism by inimersion for the remission of sine; Fourth, laying on of hands for tho gift of. tho Holy Ghost. We believe that'a man must he called of God, by prophecy and by tho laying on of hands, by tjiose who are in authority, to preach tho gospel, and administer in the ordinances thereof. We believe in tho sumo organization) that existed In the primitive church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, etc. Wo believe in tho gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing interpretation of tongues, etc. We believe the Bible to bo the word of God, as far as It Is translated cor-rectly.

DRAFT DODGER* Halifax, Feb. 18,TFJJteen more arrests of draft dodgers under the Military Service Act were made since Saturday noon by tfce There are ho native among them. city police. Haligonians things.-Joseph Smith. The articles enumerated-form a basis to judge by. If Dr. Ferguson can find any heresy in the above, I w�,nt him to show me. Mr, Ferguson evidently is not acquainted with the Bible only when It is closed. As a people we have in the past, sat with closed mouths, and have allowed such as Mr. Ferguson to belittle us. But as one, (I speak for myself). I want to say that day is gone. This contempt must come to an end, and If Mr/Ferguson thinks that we are deluded. I am prepared to prove the opposite. At any time he chooses. Now Mrv Ferguson speak out, , S. S. NUJVTON, Cardston, 1^ 5N3: yd mm mm oap L < OMEN who want to be economical should till SUNLIGHT SOAP frdely hoult.
