The resignation of Lord miner the office ot Secretary of State for the Colonies, with the appointment Mr. Winston Churchill in his place, bag brought the Colonial Office, in its relation to Canada, us one of the Do- minions, to Be tho subject of some comment. In the name of tho and Jn the status of Canada aa a Do- minion, .it. may well be advanced that the term Colonial Office, as regards its particular function, hardly applies. H there are any settled relations be- twMn tie two tha name at least is a mlinomer. So far, however, as the Dominion goes, in the established re- lations between Great Britain emd Canada, the Colonial Office cuts very little ico. There are what are termed questions of policy, but in receqt years, at any rate, there has not been anything of evidence that they have canieii any friction or that they have of such a character as to bring about, any controversy between the British and the Dominion Cabinets. Referring to the resignation of Lord Milner, the London Times, in alluding to the particular office he held, stated that there has been far less discon- tent wMS) Colonial Office methods amony; the Dominions and the Crown Colonies since 'Lord Jlllner has been Secretary .of State. Speaking of tha future of the office, it said that it is ao secret that Hie self-governing Do. From tho result of thn election Dover, In the accounts of the K'-'IK, it IB noteworthy that franchise Kiveu the women of Great Hrltain Is biKOintni; a factor In the fate of gov- ernments. It le recounted In the Do- ver olMtion, that from opening ot the polls women docked' in largo numbers to record their votos, and them wan strong that most of them voted for the "Anti-Waste" candidate. This it easily accounted for in the fact that expenditure, with taxation that it, becomes a distinctly doneetic problem with which women have a direct and inti- mate concern. This appeals to them and interests them to a far greater extent than the common party Issues. The return of the Coalition Govern- ment at the last General Klectlon in Groat Britain credited to the wo- men, in that their vote, in the main, was cast for the Government candi- dates in gratitude for the victory gained in the War under the Premier- ship of Mr. Lloyd George. In the coming eiucuuit in Great Britain, therefore, on the votes of the women the fate of the Lloyd George Govern- ment will greatly depend. The experience of the granting of franchise to women, as shown in Great Britain, it encouraging in its serving to show that are not actuated by party ties but give them- selves rather to the consideration of economic problems which ap peal instinctively to most women. Sentiment may no doubt count, as in the General Election in that countrj but the sentiment shown in that in- stance was such that no man can find fault with. Do You Know?

The marriage of Miss Alberta Me- the, woman member in the Legislature at Edmonton, who is now Mn. Price, and is entered on the roll of the House in her maiden name, raises the interesting question as to whether she is entitled to retain her seat. Will it be one as to what status she now baa, in hartal ehang- ailnlons Ijave' grown impatient of I MweT to b" any legal disability to holding her seat, in the she will naturally enjoyr thus entailing her going before her constituency again, it will make the marriage of a spin- ster member of a local Legislature or of Parliament, should this be the ex- perience ot them, a more lnterj esting event than such occasions regarded in society. Whether a woman member on be- ing given charge of the kitchen cab- inet, which her marriage will imply, be regarded as being in tha status at a member who is given Cabinet rank? This is a question1 which ill fraught with a good deal ot Interest. Should it be held that the marriage of a woman member, in the of name it occasions, will legally neces- sitate her going to her constituency, then it will mean that woman's liber- ty in the choice of her husband will be considerably limited, ia that she hay to take (he risk of that choice being endorsed by the electorate, Should it be decided that Mrs. Price, in changing her name, becomes ineligible to hold her in the House, the decision will he full of in- ANSWERS J.

(Continued from froat Colonial Office control, and a schema 11 let efoot to transfer their relations With the Imperial authorities to the of a new Dominions De- partment under the Lord Presideni of the Council. The story of strained intercourse, it continued, between the Dominions and the Colonial Oflce ia long apd rather bitter, and It is be yond question that in the put the Dominion Governments have had WUoh to complain of. Recently miner's administration, which has bMn conducted with a beter know- ledge of the point of view of the Do- minions, has served as an emollient; but it Is expected that the proposed 'change will still be pressed. The plan of tlio suggested Domin- Ions Department expresses the need of in ofilcB not for anything in the way of control of the Dominions but tot debating policies which may re- to the policies of the Dominions, In connection with Imperial policies, the settlement of which can be best at by an Interchange of views. The Question, it ia understood, will up .at the meeting of the Im- perial Cabinet, v.-hen tae Dominion! Will have the opportunity of placing their news. Meanwhile ths advice that Mr. Winston Churchill ehould make a tour of the Dominions ao as to become acquainted with them, is not out of tilace. ,THE COMING BRITISH ELECTIONS. It would appear that the coming British elections have been forced on Government, in the fact that there Ji an agitation against expenditures, with the. discontent with taxation that has the The feeling of the country has been well expressed in the election that took place in Dover this month, where the. Coalitionist candidate was defeated by Sir Thom- as Poison, who stood as an "Indepen- dent and Anti-Waste" candidate. The success ot Sir Thomas Poison was the more remarkable In that he Wis victorious in what was regarded ail impregnable Unionist strong iqld. He was pitted against i. local candidate In Major Astor, who is a tnan of great wealth and owns one of the principal residences in the county of Kent. Kent, at the general elec tloOi. returned a solid body of Union- ists, but the recent by-election coupled wltii held in the county, when "Anti-Waste" candidate won out, phows that the Uritish public are out against the heavy taxation that hai resulted from what is regarded to be the reckleis financing of the Govern. In tue last by-election held, that at Hereford, the Coalition can- didate won out against the "Antl- candidate, but the fact was noticeable that it was by a very much majority compared with the Ust election. Meanwhile, Mr. Lloyd Oeorie, it is noted, and the Chancel- lor of thn Exchequer have decided to tfttg In it budget which would allow at (onilderable remission in expendi- tures, and so pave the way for a suc- cessful appeal to the country to fol- ikortly after, rnent as to future aid in financing ir- rigation districts as they are organ- ised nnd ready sell Iran- scendB in Importance any temporary or experimental present policy in the starting of construction, on any initial project. The policy that his been con- slsterftly asked for of the government by the Irrigation Development Asso- ciation and all interested in irrigation development jn. Southern such that the bonds of- all districts times as each might come to teresting possibilities. In the case of a woman who has married, and thereby creates a disappointed rival tor her hand, be may seek for his re- venge by opposing her at the by- election. This will give a very novel interest to ai they may occur on the spinster member aspir- ing to the married state. On her part she will have to be very careful in the choice of her mate as to his particu- lar political affiliation, or, again, she, will have to be mindful not to have any disappointed suitor. There again will arise the question ot a safe seat which so often determines the choice of Cabinet Minister, with an eye aa to what the by-eleotlon will result in as it concerns the Governnwt of the day. From a woman's point of view, what will be the result of the late Miss McAdam's marriage, as it con- certis her seat in the is uncommonly interesting. On the de- cision arrived at hinges the question ot women's rights, as to the choice of a woman member of her husband. There will be so many limitations, and if the constituency she represents is not considered a safe one by the Government to bo thrown open for election, it will remain that the Gov- ernment n-ill have to be consulted before marrlago. How will Jhe women lika this? stage of organization when construc- tion of its work's might start. The sentiment of this 'committee and of all wift whom 'this matter has been discussed has been that if possihlB we do rintTiing to delay con- struction of The Lethbridge Northern project. We are, sympathy with their desires for Mtraedlate construc- tion and wish them all apeed in its consummation. We do contend, however, that any policy of delay in the development of other projecti is at this time serl- oua a matter to all of us living on the land, so vital to our future, that we cannot impress upon the government and tho public too strongly our jectioo to proposed schema Uke the cork, the Lord Mayors of Cork seem to have a habit ot bobbing up. There wan a triple elopement in tha Chase family of Atlantic City, N. J. The father and the two daughters were all principals in thefcomance. It is noteworthy that there was no par- ticular excitement over tho triple event, with the customary chase atter eloping couples which these incidents m romance ejways occasion. In the case of the Chase family, however, there appears to have Uo one to itart the ehaae. waiting until such time as tha Leth- bridge Northern of other project not now built might demonstrate abil- ity to meet Its obligations before we may hope for a successful sale of our unguaranteed bonds. As a matter of fact there are only a few months' difference in point o time in the formation of the Leth bridge Northern, the Southern, tht United and Lone Rock, the South Macleod, the Taber, the New Dayton and Warner districts. The engineer ing work ia all twins completed a about the same time. Our conditions similar and our needs Identical, There is an obvious con elusion: All should be enabled to start construction as soon as possible All should be treated exactly alike in governmental aid In financing. We cannot see the point la any need for further demonstration of the ability ot irrigated land in this part of Alberta to meet the annual pay- ments of upkeep, interest and princi- pal due on the costs of construction of irrigation wqrkn. The Alberta Rail- way and Irrigation Company's system about Lethbridge as a centre has abundantly offered all such evidence necessary. And this example has been repeatedly used in furthering the ir- rigation movement by all those re- sponsible for present accomplish- ments. It has been sufficient to in- fluence Dominion Government In furthwiut; survey work. It has been the basis of .faith lu impelling great activity-on the part of the Lethbrldge Board of Trade to the furtherance of irrigation development about the city. It has been the means of edu- cating the dry land farmers all over this south country, first, to thu ad- vantages of irrigation farming as compared to their own, and finally to a realization of the vital necessity of some irrigated land on each farm to insure feed and iced and an ability to grow livestock irresponsive of re- current periods ot tonight. Thia ap- preciation of irrigation possibilities on the part of the farmers in turn led tharti to asfc the Provincial Govern- ment for an Irrigation Act that would enable them to place themselves in a position to organlie Into districts for the bringing of water to their lands, and for aid in financing them. We have the Irrigation Act of 1D20 and a partial guarantee of tke first district's bonds as a result. The farmers point- ed to the Coaldale and Raymond dis- tricts as illustrative ot what they ex- pected to do with water and ot the returns they might reasonably ex- pect to get from it. The Provincial Government has been convinced, apparently, both of the necessity for and practical ad- vantages of irrigation here. The farmers especially and the people generally ail the un- derstand our needs favorable the Government of five full beak Imes, and IT editorials and iwblielwd la poyfrs all over the WUt did all tkto?

Now, why build a new Irrigation district to demonstrate what has ready been amply and thoroughly demonstrated for years, and la meantime delay the of all further irrigation development hen! This does tot appear to ul as a cam- paign ot education. It looks more like it wonld ItMlf into a cam- paign uf procrMtiBation. If the boad ot the east have not been convinced of the ability of irrigation farms to pay tbair way after all the educational propaganda that has gone out from Lethbridge past tew years, how can we hope for new district almost immediately Public N'unic Makee Thoroufi Examination of All Pupils For Physical DefccU (From Oar Own Oorreiponaent) Jan.

She spoke ot the school chil- complish this purpose? But the att .tide ot the state in showing its know edge of and confidence in irrigation development in Southern Alberta by a guarantee of irrigation bond would be a mighty educative force in nducing bond bouses to take the seues and in influencing the publii .0 invest in them. We do not presume to question the attitude of those who are favorable o the scheme aet forth by the Leth bridge Herald aa a possiote govern ment policy. It would undoubtedly make an immediate start in construe ion work possible over a large dis rict. We believe that a guarantee of he bonds of the Lethbridge North rn would do tke same thing. And hat a policy of full guarantee each district as organized and rovSd ot by government would esult in so much greater improve- ment and substantial prosperity over very much larger territory that the nture of Southern Alberta would be oon assured and the whole question ease to he a question long before urther development would otherwise egin should present in that irectlon be tflrodgh any waiting policy.
