Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 3, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta .Friday, .Tanuary 3,1913 THE LETHBRIDGE -.DAILY HERALD Page ?1 .Your Cfaiaraniee c� Goodness The name "SAL AD A" on the sealed lead packages is your strongest guarantee of all that fa best and most fragrant in tea IS THE CHOICEST TEA GROWN ON TOE ISLAND OF CETLON -clean, whole leaves-with the delightful flavor of the fresh leaves brought to your table by the seale.d lead packages. BL i'muier As-ijiuth's pointed question to the Unionists in the House of 'Commons yesterday when ho' asked them to declare clearly what would be their attitude if the home rule bill was submitted to the electorate and approved. The reply of Andrew Bonar Law, the leader of the opposition, that in that case the Conservative party would not .-encourage the Ul-sterites to resist the measure, is-., regarded as significant, it is thought in some quarters that the government would be glad to take- advance . of the. present dissension, in the Ilru&nr fst ranks on the subject of tariff iv,-forrn in order to obtain a clear inundate from the country on the .questions of home rule, ..Welsh ilisestab-" lishment and the franchise reform. It is regarded as quite possible that should the demoralization in the Unionists' ranks spread, the government might suddenly dissolve the House of Commons and rush a general election in the course of February. Ottawa, Jan. 2,-The constitutionality of an act passed at the last session of the Saskatchewan legislature is to be the subject 0I'a friendly reference to the supreme court of Canada, by the Ecderal government. Thc; local government is a contesting party! The act permitted a railway to use the lands of' another railway company, providing the rights of the latter were not interfered with. Consent of the' iocal government is a condition precedent to such privilege. When the bill came here for review, the law officers of the crown questioned the right of the province to apply such regulations or to confer such powers on federally incorporated companies under' the general railway act.. � .'  - Disallowance was talked of, but it was suggested by- the. Scott government--tiiat if this-course were not taken the act would not be put into force, pending a reference on the constitutional point involved. : . Tiiis reference was agreed at . today's . cabinet council. IN OLDEN DAYS IT : MM WITH BACK BONE DENOUNCES AN INSPECTOR W'Ht PROMOTES CHILDREN TO PLEASE PARENTS BE DID BORDEN AND LAW ENTER .COMPACT lTO TAX BRITISHER'S FOOD ROBBED CLOVER BAR POST OFFICE lOdrriontou, Jan. 2.-The Clover Bar 1>cst office, which is run by Fred Daly, In connection with his store, was broken open by thieves on New Year's Eve or early on New Year's Day, and three registered letters, all for the westbound mail, and the contents of the till in the store, were taken. Toronto, Jan. 2. - Miss Umma North, teacher of Vaughan public r-chool in S. ,S.- No. 15, submits a very interesting report of December's work, in which she points out interference of parents. The following -was the standing 0f the pupns : Jean Laurie, Jean McCallum, Archie. Robertson, Alvin Burton, Annie McCal-lum, Cecil Shannon, Gordon Shannon and Annie Laurie. The average attendance was 11. The following is the teacher's statement : "Four of the pupils, Annie Laurie, Annie McCallum, Cordon Shannon, I-Iarvcy Rofrjrtson, have seriously defective eyesight; one girl, the eldest in attendance during the year, is afflicted with some mental or spiritual disorder which renders her incapable of telling the truth ; at the same time she shows a sad lack of parental training. This school is unique in that it has shown during the year some of the brightest and some of the dullest pupils to he found in rural schools. The dull ones, with one exception, have been promoted, not for merit, but to satisfy parental vanity. For this reason both pupils and teachers find unnecessary difficulty in.proper progress later. Unfortunately, the inspector advocates promoting a child, not hecause he has done his foundation-work well, but "because he is a twin." or "to please his parents." This probably explains why in this school and in many others in the vicinity children remain in the fourth hook class three or more years, whereas in other counties bright pupils secure their junior high school diploma at the end of one year in the fourth class, and ordinary pupils who have been promoted for sane reasons, secure their entrance standing at the end of two years."

"When Mr. Borden," it says, "vis-! itcd England last year the Unionist leaders entered into a contract with, him in upholding for this country the ' policy of imperial ' preference, of which the food taxes form an essential element. � ' "This statement," is. of a very serious character. In the olden days such an arrangement would be called treason and if that word, has gone out of fashion the English people have lost their love of liberty and their swift recentment of any, encroachment up-'j on it."

It is understood that this agreement will he independent of Sir Wm. Whyte's report, and is binding, no matter what the recommendation.

Valencia, Do Minho, Portugal, Jan. 3.-A daring band of smugglers on the Portuguese Spanish frontier' carried off $90,000 in cash today, after a fierce battle with a cattle raiser and forty of his herdsmen, during which nine of the cowboys were killed and four severely wounded. Jos. Muril-hae, a well known cattle breeder in the province of Minho, had been for several weeks passing from fair to fair and had disposed of three herds of bulls. He then started for home with the Portuguese equivalent of $90,000 in bank notes and cash with him, his forty herdsmen acting as guards. While he was pass;ug close to the border between Portugal and Spain, he was suddenly attac'ed hy a large, band of armed smugglers, who flre'd on his party from'behind rocks' and thickets The htrllsrnen returned the fire with vigor, but;'were finally forced to flee The oowboys carried off Murilhie, who had been seriously wounded, but left the whole of the money and twenry-three of the)* comrades on the field-.
