Also on all C.P.R. trains When.the, HcCambly power policy is evolved Lethbrldge will give manufacturers^ cheap power as they get in any we'stera city. That fact is woiih remembering. Lethbrldge is going to come- on the power problem. The Calgary Herald and the Edmonton Journal reveal a paucity of cause for attacking Hon. Frank Oliver in daily harping on the fact that he kept his seat while the National Anthem was being sung for party purposes in the Commons. The Kingston city council for 1.913 is graced by no less than six ex-mayors. It does get to be a profes-| sion after the virus once gets in' the blood. There were men running in Ontario cities yesterday who have been running for civic office for the past twenty years. Thyinoiple that the unity of the race is a natural fact oi importance supreme over.the political fact of the. diversity of nations. Every "international agreement or convention or treaty is an internation. al acknowledgment of" independence and fraternity. Already we have the beginning of a world legislature, of a world judiciary and Of a world executive. But these beginnings are rapidly maturing , jnto developed Institutions whicifhrjk this century, if;>not,-'iu this generation; are bound to bring within sight:.."the parliament of man, the federation 'of ;tlre world." Not Altogether Trustful fraternity of the nations Canada called to have a place and part Unique and strategic is the position of the Canadian dominion. One with Britain in i!s great legacies and achievements and lofty inspirations, the nearest neighbor of the United States, and sharing with the republic in the obligation of America to the world, It is given to Canada to be the bond and the interpreter between these two world powers, and to hold them in an inner fraternity around which will gather the new-boru "fra ternities" of the wor^d. DOWN IN ONTARIO, though desirous of tax -fiform, they seem somewhat wary of going the full length in the single tax policy. That is,if we may so judge from what the Toronto News says:  To remove all taxes from improvements would be to grant special privileges 'to the proprie- .  tors of apartment houses and sky-scrapers.' The change would encourage property owners to get* the greatest possible, rental space out. of each building lot. Their tax*B being placed on land only, would* not vary with the. capital values and earning capacities of their buildings. Consequently, the trend of building activity would be the erection of lofty structures in which families could be herded like sheep and offices stacked like: crates. This is what single tax would mean. But there is no proposal to introduce such a system. 'The'question to be decided by , tho- people is this:  "Are you: in t&vai of. applying for legislation tj>.> iiBsess buildings, business'tax and income on.a. lower-basis than viand?'-'.

This bridge Is recognized as "dependable." The fact that the Herald's city circulation exceeds the number of dwelling houses in the city, is a guarantee that il car-Vies the store newa straight to the ' purae-bolder In the home. Year by year this bridge has been evidenced and strengthened. In the past it has been profitable to both advsrtlser and reader to journey over this bridge day by day.. It has also been profitable to the- makers of the bridge. ance and expenditure, to submit it to the country either by holding a plebiscite or a general election, before committing Canada to it. To this course Mr. Borden is the more hound by consideration that the census of 1911 shows the West to lack a,hout twenty-two of its due represen-'t'a'Uon in the House of Commons. This lack cannot be supplied before the ministry shall have passed a redistribution, of representation act, as the B'. N.' A. Act, which is the constitution of Canada, ceTtainly requires th'em to do at this sitting. The opposition promise to aid in expediting a redistribution act. They asked for postponement of the new naVy hill meantime and a general election as soon as possible afterward. If this reasonable request be denied it will 'be difficult for the ministry to make good defence against the charge of having arbitrarily employed a majority, gained on a wholly different issue, to commit Canada to what is, after all, a revolutionary departure from Us military policy. The Advertiser believes, iu the present exigency, and in view of the insuperable difficulties in the way of building "fleet units," or indeed any kind of naval craft in Canada just novy, that a direct, contribution auch as the premier proposes, for the purpose of building three dreadnoughts with, all possible speed' in British yards, is the better plan. These vessels will be the property of Canada, and will he a real noucleus of a Canadian navy while the 'provision for giving the preference to Canadians in manning them will be of immense value in instilling naval training in our population. But, considering the great cost of these ships, and also, as has already been' Pointed out, the radical depart-isre in (point of national policy, in all justice) the country should be given an opportunity of expressing itself ut>-on the proposal, Som Jono has said that what the west'.t eeds is box cars and not dread ndugh s. The west certainly needs the be x cars, but it is alBo Important to find out whether or not it wants to strengthen the imperial navy. There is rocpi for a wide divergence of opinion oh this subject, und tho cleavage is noi by any means along party lines The-Advertiser thinks that a plebiscite on the proposed naval program, which would prevent Its being |)P! foggejd by other Ishucs, would be I lie prop< r solution. The government should go to the country in any event. THE CANADII OF COM] BANK E ' HAS INSTALI SAFETY DEPOSB30XES.
