It Is not a question of nuking "adjiutmenta to tbe present form of government" tna1 the majority voted for In the ptebi scite, but in faror of managerial form of government The injection of "ad juttments to tie protect form ot government" is an issie totally for- eign to the point in view, and, it the plebiscite is what the committee Is to be guided by, has no place In argu- ment ia the deliberations, of com- mittee. It is following a wrong scent, part. and IB not what' the majority have voted for. ,THe people In the majority did not rote for making adjustments to the presetit form of government. They rated in favor of managerial form of government. In considering adjustments the committee is not fol- lowing the will of the people for which it was presumed to be This much it dear. In considering clause 1 of the order of procedure, the preliminary portion, U to dlscuasloii to ascertain the faults of the present government, is In or- der. But this only for the purpoia ot affording a line of comparison with the forms of managerial government which will come up for discanlon.

This Is something to be placed before electors when the question is ready to be put to them. This is the province of the committee.

MUNICIPALITIES AND THE NATURAL RESOURCES. The "Winnipeg Free Press points out the .relation of the Natural Resources to the cities of Western Canada. It ib well: known that the provincial gov- ernments hare been accused of im posing upon the sources of revenue supposed to be wholly belonging to the municipalities. Thisjaa.3 been a mat ter of controversy in Alberts, for some years. It Is held, and the Her aid thinks justly, in a number of iu that the Provincial Govern- ment is collecting large sums of mone> that rightly belong to the cities. On the other hand the excuse of the Province Is that It needs the revenue and must get it from some source or other. It hinted at the recent convention oZ the Alberts, municipal. ttles In Lethbrldge that If the Natural two sons by two enormous serpents I represented in the group) sent by Apollo. (i. July IS, 1817.

There is no doubt that this is true, and that being so, the cities cannot Kelp but he vitally iaterested la the question of tha retura of the Natural Resources to the provinces. As the (Free Press says: "In Alberta, therefore, the ques- tion of the Natural Resources right home to the pockets of the peo- ple. The same is true ot Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and will be more so as the development of their proceeds. The resources rightly be- long to the Provinces and the reve- therefrom should go Into the Pro- vincial treasury. This would make possible a more liberal division of the tax JMid between the Province and Jie municipalities." ROYALTY HAS ITS USES Royalty, as it is constituted ia tuo British Empire, is not merely an empty figurehead. In the spirit in which its members have sensed their uses, and in the manner in which they have never failed to give recognition to the relation in which they stand to the State, British Royalty has proved itself to be the bulwark in sustaining tho spirit and the inspiration of the Kmpire. The latest proof of Royalty aa factor in State and Empire has been in tlie complete winning over of 'the anti-British Boer leader.
