The preference to the Mother Land, to New' Zealand, and South Africa,, is continued by. the Commonwealth .Parliament, . , In tl� new tariff Canada is not 'gli^en preferential treatment. Goods from this country must enter Australia at the higher rates of the general tariff, which are applied to goods from the United States, Germany and all othw: alien countries, News tliat Australia has decided to withhold from Canada the heneflt o! the British preference has been received with great dejection by the Government. Sir G�orge E. Poster was sent to Australia last summer to induce the Commonwealth Government to extend the preference to Canada in return Ioi� a i^imilar concessica by Canada. When Sir George was in Australia, it was reported that his proposals did not meet with the cordial reception from Australia, whicli was hoped for. It waB stated then that Australia resented Canada's failure to live up to the solemn agreement njadli with the Commonwealth in 1909, to establish a Aeet on the Pacific, foe the protection of Bribisii interests. Under tlwit agreement Great Britain was to look after'ast of Asia, while Australia and Canada was to create'navies which could act together for the policing of other portions of the Pacific. Australia went ahead and now has a powerful fleet. Owing to the change of government in Canada, plans for-a Cmnkdian navy on the Pacific were abandoned. Hecen't events have drawn eipphatic attention to the Canadian breach of faith, and it is still further > emphasized by the new Australian, tariff which treats Canada as an alien.

Today is the 166tU anniversary of the iblrth of Robert Burns, The word is more than a name to Scotsmen. Bums is a U'ving, vibrant memory', and the Scotsman who has not a volume of Bums' works in his librae}', pr who cannot recite from memory at least one of the immortal bard's musings, has yet to be located. All over the world, Scotsmen are today engaged, in some way. In com-memoratlnK the memory of.the most famous man Scotland ever produced. ^ I>ethbrldge every Bcotchnjan will participate. At St. Mary's HaU a "Robbie" Bums program will b� rendered under the auspices of the Leth'bridgo City Pipe Band, under Pipe Major James Horn, Songs and speeches will be the order, and Mayor Hardje and Commissioners .Grace and Beid will be there to respond to toasts., l^e affain is strictly invitation, and those who have them are mighty fortunate. The Bums Society of Hardleville has also arranged a splendid program and aU are invited to that. place this, evening'.- (Taber Times) , .Stormy scenes were witiiesaeil in the council session for a few mimites .on, Monday evening last, when the ;tovn fathers dlBCiissd Die question i whether work provided by the town for relief purposes wou'ld lie paid at the rate of 20.cents an hour, or at the (stipulated minimum wage of 30 cents i an hour, which Is supposed to be paid (for all town work. The council have on ilcposii in the bank the sum of $500 for expenditure for.parly's grocery, Shiells' hardware. West-lake's stationery store, and Poster & Stub-b's liquor store, lit all, tlie burglars collected something less than S8 iu cash, but very little else. At Hardlngs, the intruders tapped the cash register to the tune of only $1-75 and got nothing from their raid on the desk in the office. At Shiells' hardware a few dimes In the till was the harvest, while at Westlake's, apparently nothing but the pane of glass through which the burglars entered was touched, and at the liquor store there wasn't even the trace of a drink of Scotch missing or anything else. It was at ^'ickery's that the hungry men got their richest harvest, and in thife store, after breaking; in through the back windov/a, they managed to gather un the tremendous sum of $5. The police havo not yet got much of ah inkling as to the identity of the burglars. The general opinion is that several destitute persons,' unable, to withstand any longer the cries of the hungry mouths who '.dBpend upon tliem tor daily bread, tiad started in to create a little relief \fuud of their own by making a round-up of the local cash drawers. But hard times and lack of business, together with natural caution on the part of the business men, prevented the hunters, from capturing much big game. The police committee of the council have authorized Chief Campbell to use an extra man now and then when he feels that conditions warrant it. Six vags 'were in the cells on Monday morning, hut they had been taken in before the burglaries were com-mltted. Five were, sent down for 30 days,-while tJie sixth, owing to the fact that he was on his way to his homestead at the Hat, with an Injured hand, was let go on condition that he would move on.
