Canada's destiny- is being wrought. ,lt is there the language problem, the foreign problem and the good citizenship problem are being solved. Can you not see how important it is that we should have in our schools, teachers of t)ie best nualifieatious and the soundest sense and the highest ideals. We cannot attract people with those gifts to that profession unless we pay them well. Is it not worth while to pay them "generously since we know-that they are great factors in the solution of one of the most serious prob- lems Canada as a new and growing -Mayor Hardie is a canny Scotchman |nation has to deal? and ho is going slow on the filtration plant proposals.

The doctor's remarks were heart-i!y aiiidauded. The .speaker paid a compliment to the ladies present staling that when llie l.ibciiil government is returned to power tlie vole will be extended to women. Tho lav.ii of the |irovince are unfair in that particular. To say that women liiive not brains enough to properly exercise their franchise is a base insult to tho intelligence of the ladies of Hrllish Columbia.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL THE MELTING POT It is in our schools that the future tiitizens of Canada are being moulded Into loyal subjects. It is there the 5reat foreign element is being assimilated. They are being taught our language, and they are being imbued with Dur ideals, and in a few years they A man who allowed an automobile to smoke on a Toronto street was fined five dollars. That's getting close to the wet's argument that after booze was placed under the ban then smoking would be stopped. However, as long as the punishment is meted iout to automobiles, the other smokers won't protest. The Toronto Xews, staunch Tory paper that it is, is not jubilant about the Minister of Militia. In rebuking his critics the other day it made a few admissions. Here they are: There is much violent abuse of Sir .Sam Hughes by hostile Liberal news-will have been completely transform- | papers and by newspapers aTiimated Ed. The public school on the prairie i apparently by bitter personal hatred n thp attprHtinn iOf the Minister. Xo doubt the .Minister has his faults like the rest ot us. He is not always judicial or judicious is the medium where the alteration Is taking place. The little boys and girls from the foreign hunies are growing up to be Canadians, speaking the lOnglish tongue and worshipping the tlag of a free country. The Public Service monthly, published at Regina, relates an incident which effectively tells of the trans-''ormation our new citizens are under-joiug in our schools. Here it is: One of our Saskatchewan school inspectors contributes llie following ac-30uui ot his visit to a school picnic: As our faithful Ford carefully pick-?d its way over the rough trails ot u--municipality, one Satur- �,lay in June, we .suddenly came upon a ji'-.)ivd of people assembled in a shady look. In au open space nearby were lonw ninety boys and girls arrauged ,n double tile under two banners, ft'liich bore ihe names of "Junior" and 'Folkestone.'' It was a union school picnic and these were the names of '.he schools. Kvery child but one was jf Hutheuian parentage. Fach child carried a flag, and among the flags ftas ono of France and one of Servta. Alter marching around the grassy aralrle floor, they halted before ii alatlorm, upon which ;slood one of (ho ;eachers, a stout young man of fine jppearance, who was born in Austria �}{ Polish parents. In clear, strong, sxcuUeut, English, he spoke as folio ivb: "Ladles, gentlemen and children, we ire very grateful to you all wlio are prusont with us today at this picnic md wish you all a lietirty welcome. It. gives uh great pleasure at seeing lou take ail interest and sympathy in the tiny tots before us. ^ "Oiii' aim to ineoUng hero today waa Capt. W. J.

It was a st.i;nlllcaut .�statement to niako, but nevertheless it was true. Anything to "gel the votes" and "get the money.'' If the peoplu of British Columbia olect Ihe present govoriiment for nnothcr four years they may extend the life of iiJirliamont at the expiration of their term forever. They have ali'p.'iily .succeeded In carrying things with a liigli band for three inonlbs. Mr. Fisher referred at length to Iho Pacillc Great lOasteni Uailwiiy deal, Workmen's Compensation Act and the .Agricultural Credits .Vet. In conclud-iug his address he wished It distinctly unilerstood that he intended to stand by the Liberal platform. Tho principles laid down iti that are sound and busiucssliko and thai is what Ihe province needs. High School By-Law The high school by-law submitted to the ratepayers of Cranbrook yesterday, was defeated by a vote of PI to SU. There was considerable opposition to the movement at this particular time. The liuaiices of the city are at a low ebb and many rate iniycrs are of the opinion that Cranbrook ims not progressed sulliclently tor a separate high school. Premier Favors Watts A, 1'',.
