What is Building Dedicat- ed With Pitting Ceremony Paid For (From Our Correspondent) CARDSTON, Alberta. February 23. new flC.500.00 church of the Presbyterian congregation in Cards- ton was dedicated here last Thursday in fnine. A very liirKe number ot peo- ple were present In addition to the I congregation. The Rev.

The reply of Mr. lioyie was given in the motion brought before the House hy Mr. Ewing lor making im- prisonment tho punishment for the in- toxicated motor driver. He stated that viction auri hanging of the late Tom Hassoff. Whatever views he may have held with regard to British justice should now have undergone a very change, in the lenient man- ner in which he was treated for what was without doubt a serious or't'ence. He should be thankful for the dera- he hud tukeu up the matter with ihe j eiicy of British justice that he federal Department ot Justice and not dealt with more severely, and had the, intimation that action as ad- j should, if he is at all reasonable, vised would be taken to introduce! tinuik that justice for the way in Borne such law at tho present session at Ottawa, failing this he would see that Home action was taken in the Province. Federal action by an amendment to the Criminal Code, so that the law can apply to the whole Dominion, is more to be desired than a law apply- ing to the due part of It. In the seri- ousness of tho offence of being in- toiicsted while in charge of a motor car, with all the grave contingencies so far as regards the safety of the puhlic it will tend to. In this respect the Minister Is well-advised by wait- ing for such action before endeavor ing to put it into force In the Pro- vince. The matter, accordingly, is one for the Department of Justics to take up without delay and to make it'the law of the land. Meanwhile ire-liavo the welcome assurance that, so far as this Province is concerned, a law that is vitally needed will be established should there be any failure on tha part of Ottawa to take the necessary IN THE LIKE PREDICAMENT The city of Lethhrldge is not the only municipality which is feeling tha rub of tho legislation which lays it down that it has no control of school expenditures but has to perform mere- ly tha function of providing tha money to meet the estimates framed by the school trustees. Things havq come to the same pass in the exercise ot feeling in Windsor, Ontario, as they exist at the present time in our city. A news item carried in tho Toronto Globe from Windsor says: "Acting on a ruling by City Solicitor Davis that the City Council has no jurisdiction over educational matters, Aid. Strong tonight gave notice of his intention to hold the Board of Education re- sponsible for the, levy and collection of taies needed for educational pur- poses. "If the City Council has no power lo control expenditures .of the Aid. Strong said, "then the hoard should be directly responsible to the people for the money spent for education. At election time the City Council is blamed for high taxation, when in. reality at' least half of the taxes are needed lor school pur- poses." Snch a plan as proposed 'by Aid. Strong would mean pense, members of additional the Board of Education pointed out, in that the board would hate to employ a tax collector of -its own." The proposal of Aid. Strong of Windsor by no means points a way out. For' relieving s. city 'council at the time of election from incurring the displeasure of the electorate over the lize of the mill, rate it may he regard- ed ai a .policy with the principle of "safety so far as it affects the members of City Councils, but it still leaves those, who have to pay school tales where they are. lu fact such a policy is in the nature of _ jumping from the frying pan into the fire, in that it removes that personal interest in the city, of which they themselves are citizens and ratepayers, from the trustees :ta an outside hotly. With the law ot tho Province as it is, it would appear a useless thing tor the Council "to kick against the It resolves itself into a rea- amicable understanding hetween the City Council and the school trustees. After all it moans in tha final analysis in school expendi- tures the ability of the city to pay without malting the burden on the ratepayers too heavy to be 'borne. The icllools have to be run, and, as far as powlblc, in best interests of edu- cation. The trustees perform a two- fold function, in that they are elected In the Interests of tho schools and in had which it deak with him. C. C. Stuart should, accordingly, be a wiser if not a chastened man. To try to prove the innocence of man who has been convicted or con- demned, if in the individual's miud there is the thought that there has been a miscarriage of justice, is one thing, the means employed are an- other. Stuart, as himself has con- fessed, approached the matter in very prejudiced state of mind, in the particular view he held towards cap- ital punishment. He went at his self- imposed task with a rashness which his language betokened, in his viru- lent attack on court and jury, went so far as to commit himseif to something which later on at Calgary he acknowledged was not correct, namely, that one of the jurors said that the jury was not convinced of Bassoff's guilt. The very making of this false statement shows that his ideas of justice are warped, and, with this reliance on what he knew to be false in his plea for justice, he him- self wilfully denied justice to the men who bail the responsible task, of .deal lac with ot the condemned man. Freedom of speech la one of the liberties which British rule allows, hut: that la BO reason why It should be allowed to degenerate IntO-Hcence. British justice ii not a thing to be lightly aspersed unless there is a firm: and sure: f qundatipn' f or .doing so. Stuart should by now, and, with the light of his experience, in -the court and what ha.s. been brought home to him, should 'corrgratulate himself that he lives in a-land where British justice hag its traditional honor- and respect, In the way it is fairly and sqnarely dealt out. Others of the same kidney should take warn- ing from his Ill-advised example, and profit by experience. What is iV.i' Devil's Four- IVster? r.. King Arthur's sword called K.v.-Klib'.ir; G.

Politics need not be dirty It they could but get the two other parties cut of the rut. W. J. Coe, Woods' Lake, said that members of the executive should be requested to keep out ot politics. Mr. Hembllag, Oyama, folt that the success or failure of the United Farm- ers' movement depended on whether they kept out of or entered politics. He did not think they had any right to seek to become the government of a province or the Dominion as they were only one' class, albeit, an im- portant clasa. By uniting more firm- ly they could bring about a better gov- ernment than, they, could hope to ob- tain under any party system.
