Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LertffiRtOGE DAILY HERALD OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS Some Nuts to Crack by tho by Ex As was the writer has re ceived some little criticism from cer tan interests In regard to what we recently had to say concerning the reformation of the Dominion but none of this criticism has come from the common and In this connection we wish to call the atten tion of the reader to some peculiari ties concerning any attempt towards a reform In this Why is It that we have not heard this issue discussed by the politicians who ad drees us at election times and at other times The answer Is to the professional the appoint ment to the Senate Is one of the and he is the last person you can count upon to Injure or destroy the tree that bears How many of olir politicians in their such as we are attempting to alter all the highest and when it is fairly obtained and express ed It is seldom Lincoln said you can fool some of the people al of the you can fool all of the people some of the but you can not fool all of the people all of the Recently we have had some discus sion of the question of hprtedltarj titles in and even the poli ticians have etartled at the uni formity of opinion In favor of aboil tlon of the Now the question Of hereditary titles has not hereto fore been frankly dlscucsed for the same reason that the question of the reformation of the senate has not been The politician and finan cier have looked forward to the day own minds art budding Senators Is when in the birthday honors of the a place where the party banner I king his name will be Included and must be kept waiving Where there must be standard bearer in the el who goes into the fight ex pecting to Joose his deposit It some Inducement must be held out to secure this standard Tew often this Inducement ia the ever occurring vacancy in the Dominion U Is well for we ordinary voters to un derstand these and to fathom the motives of the aspiring There Is little hope of any reform in Ihe Senate coming from the profes lional And for the same If we go i little we need not look for the reform to be advocated in the par tlzan The partizan press is more or less under the control of the partizan and ff the poli tician does not care to change or de atroy the tree that bears the plums we can be sure that the who la the mouthpiece of his organiza will not take aggressive steps along these Again such questions are not apt to fee raised by organizations or Inter ests thatore desiring for the simple reason that such interests do not care to incur the displeasure of the legislative body as a of which Senate is a very important ft is one of the reforms that If comes at from the common

aspire to public wo pleixd guilty to the soft insinuation that it would be nice to have a life time ap pointment with its accompanying re muneration and honors and to have the prefix of Sir1 attached to our however plebian may have been its A life time appointment to the senate where we need not bother ourselves by tho continuous of the common herd would be partic ularly Suppose we did vote on important measures in such a way as to suit the interests and dis please the that would be our own and suppose that we preferred to remain inactive to the great issues that were presented and quietly acquiesced in what may pass the still the none the less position is We would still get our We would Not a twinge of Bain o soreness before applying or This ma sound like a dream to corn pestered men

the position is one worth striving So we repea that the job of senator appeals to us but we are somewhat doubtful as t Whether expressions such as are con tained in this letter will aid us in reaching thie No Reforms such that of the senate and of hereditary titles mus if they come at from the dc mahd of the people as a Pei spnally we do not like the prefix the common and more democra tic term of to us Is preferable and in keeping with our people anc Some time ago In an address before the we had Ihe audacity to re fer to the as and when Bmt address was quoted befori some member who ha been knighted since noting that we had used the word instead o wanted to know when it was and our friends at home joshed us because we did not know better than to use the word when we should have said We accepted the joeh in good part but the word was used by us inten tionally and not well ft is none of our friends To be serious if the humble term o is good enough for such men as as as the Younger Pittas as the late John Ross and the great honest Abe is it good enough for the politician and the and we say this without disrespect to any man who has been so The good that men do is not in terred with their but on contrary his work in his communitj and his country is the real measure of his and if It is of merit will regardless of any artifi cial attempt to make it permanent Besides until mans active life is fin ished and his career It is very difficult to determine whether or not he shall be entitled to much less to transmit such honor to his The membership of the should stand solidly behind lie oitl cials ia demanding such refr ms as shall make our Canada really omocra tlc and among those are the reforma tion of the senate and the abolition of hereditary to create and stimulate

that as other and were organized and pro tecting their own It was up to the agriculturalists to effect as strong an organization as The farmer did not want others to assume his the speakers pointed he only wanted Much time was devoted to the membership campaign and discus sion of arrangements for local speak It was pointed out that the best way to carry on the work was to apportion areas within the

aosslbly close to the powers that t seems to run exactly contrary to the expressed aim of tho department of education I mean tho policy of help rig the rural schools to become as ef icieut as the town schools For he benefit of my country readers 1 mt among tho laymen there is a general tendency to pass over any thing relating to education as a spec ial subject best regulated by those who are most directly As long as the majority of the country people take this view of things the country scliools will remain below standard for It is rare to find in the country trustee an educational special

membership In a local al liance of ten and of these ten members six will constitute a quor I have no data at hand but It would be interesting to know what proportion of the teachers in the coun try

group of When will the country who are paying big taxes and getting in wake up and demand their share of the The country schools are already paying large bonuses in the way of salary and what they are getting Is mainly the fledglings from the normal Why In the name of reason should the country schools take in all the raw recruits In the country and train them up In the way they should or shouldnt go and then politely turn over to the towns ex perienced teachers fathers mothers closely all educational to scrutinize A childs school teacher stands to him In a celation second only to his and no one can 61aim to be an adequate parent who shows indifference or Ig norance of the chief formative in fluence in his childrens So all that affects the nupply of teachers hlm if he was joining the new

and he answered How can or If I why should I want to It simply means that everything will be run by a clique of teachers centering in the five towns Red Deer and the There is no provision whatever In which an isolated teacher may have even a nonvoting If he cared to attend the yearly cdnven tion as an outsider he might be wel I am of the earnest opinion that the rural teaching body of Afberta are

couraged in every way Ona of the means and the one thVt hits back at the was the decision by the British Purchas ing Agent that no carcasses will be accepted that weigh less than 500 That act limits the light and unfinished cattle to the local and is very likely to result in a heavy cut on cattle of that It is not too late for the farmer whose pasture is short to protect him self against If he
