forofftttient has advertised its provisions and the press has published coliinww ot details telling people what they must Those who are too lazy or too indifferent to inform themselves and provide themselves wilth the nec essary papers shouldnave no protest to make if they are checked The only exception we take is to the meth ods used whereby the people who have the papers but who have made the simple mistakeof carrying them every timeUsey appear on the street are arrested and If these people were given an hour to go and get their papers and report to the or if they were taken before the mag

a union and the union government is a war That Sir Robert Borden should have during his last election that the govern ment had absolutely abolished pat and that preferment in the civil service would come by merit and and not by party is due primarily to the fact that he could speak as a leader who had shared the government of the conn try with men of the opposite views in Now the spoils as it has arisen both in the United and in and as it has arisen in Great Britain through the sale of hon ors to men who had liberally contri buted to party is in essence The bias of prescrip tive party views in
