FARMERS IN THE NEXT PARLIAMENT Western Canada has now a larger ropreaentatiou in tho House of Corn-mono than 'ever before, there being 4? members from the pra'irle provinces against 27 in the last parliament. Mora signinc'ant than that,' however, Tlie Grain Oroiver.s r.tiide emphasizes Is that the organized farmers are for the first time represented in parliament. Hon. T. A. Crerar, president of the United Grain Growers I^lmited and roinlBter of agriculture, received lu the couBtituency at Marr'iuette a majority of (1,500 votes which is the largest majority given to any candidate In Western Canada in a rural constltu oncy. R. 0. Henders, president of the Mauifoba Grain Gro>verH' Association, Wiis elected la the constituency of Maedonald with a majority of nearly H,000 votes, in n rural oonstttnecy with a very large proportion of French electors. J. A, Maharg, president of the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' As-nodatlon, was elected without Opposition iu the cor.stltueiicy of Maple Creek. John Y. iloUl, for many years a diveetor and executive member of the Saslcatchev.-.m Craln Growers' As-Botiailon, was eleci'.il lu tho con.^titn-cncy of ?.iiicl>.enzJc. in ,;j;;te of tho fact ihiu ais opponent luid ihe ondorsation both (if the Unionist pariy and of the opposUioji paviy.

Two have been engaged in departments of defence, where service and not wealth Is the chief reward. Probably the most gratifying recognition Is that of W. J. Gage. If we are to have titles in Canada* they should go only to men who have done something really worth while. Mr. Qage is a true friend of humanity. He has given of his wealth to one of the greatest causes of all, the treatment of tuberculosis. Such a man should be honored by hJa King and Country in some manner or -other. Dr. Andrew McPhail has also been a helpful citizen. He Is a scientist, an author, and a patriot. Had titles always been conferred upon men of the class of Mac-donald, KingsmlU, Gage and McPhaJl, there would be less prejudice against titles in the country. As for hereditary titles, we can't excuse them, no matter upon whom they may be conferred. Wo have too many already and mostly they have gone to men who were rocognizod purely because of the millions they have amassed. We don't want that kind of aristocracy In this democracy. The aristocracy of Intellect, philantrophy. Invention, and loyal public service la good enough for Canada: Later dispatches include tho Lieu-tenant governor of Brttlsh Columbia, JIaJor General Sam Steele and Hodolphe Bondroau clerk of tho Cnn- '"'"�' not alter ourlm-prpBSlpnlif the new year's list.
