H An Excellent Object Lesson FRANK the Minister of; Railways and Can- als, has just had given him the grandest opportunity a cabinet min- ister ever'had in this country to enter "into a fight with a combine in the in- terests of the people. Some time ago the linaiice_ minister as a measure of relief took 'off half the duty on cement making a difference-- of .twenty-live cents a barrel. Mr. Cochrane rather "'wisely waited until this reduction was an operation before placing an order with." the Canada Cement Company, the cement trust for one 'hundred thousand bairels of cement, intimating to the company that he would expect the cents a barrel reduction. The Honornble Frank should have known better than ask for such a thing for everyone knows, or at least every good Conser- vative professes to know, that the consunvar does not pay the duty. But the honorable gentleman's, business sense got the -better OL his political sense for once, and 'he asked for the reduction. The company, however, told hi'hi .he would Jiave to pay the .-price .asked.' The. minister asked if 1 it was a slap at the government for cutting the duty in two, and ictimat-j ed that lie would get the cement from some other Canadian company. They held firm, and he tried to carry out his threat, but could net buy a barrel of cement from any Canadian com- pany. Now, the minister has to pay the top price or present to the people of this, country (.the horrible- spectacle of a Conservative cabinet minister spending good Canadian tnone'y to buy f.Qr. Canadian public works., Frank will not be the horrible spectacle. lie will put twenty-live cents a barrel of the people's .money Gertie, Whose shoes looked invariably dirty; One night e'er her She shined them with POLO; Her mother said, "Gertieshow SHOE POLISH ITS so easy to shino w ith ti daub, a i ub and your bhoos arc ,'lean foi a week ljoio is always fresh, the BIG box koops it so.

Wbei map as i whole 'town Is wiped off a result of a strike, there is into the pockefs of the cement trust likely to be some hard thinking firs Can Mr. Cdchrane or any man knowing these circumstances be lieve that there is not a cement trusl n this country? Had any govern merit or" member of it ever a bettei chance and excuse to enter into a fight with the trust to show it up and smash It? It is a grand opportunity but the. government will do nothing, Is not Sir Max Aitkin, the mogul.-of trust, and are not he and his associates the men who backed the goad '-old Tory party in tho last ele'c lion.and .who are prepared to back them again-if1 they are good? h a splendid chance missed, but the people will uct- -forget. doue amoujr the employers and men v. ho participated In the labor trouble, Lille's tiise is, a, strong, argument against the strike method. of settling grievances Free Trade 'and ;Altruism .TORONTO NEWS evidently thinks it has scored a point wb'en it Elates that it was nptj minated Jn ilie "Great Exhibition of the. industry of all promot- to further encourage the same.

Haying in a measure begged the questioa it pro- ceeds to say that convinced free trader is the least concerned of all politicians about the status of the poor. Having made this statement It derives some smug satisfaction in that It has spoken the words of wisdom by drawing attention to the fact that after seventy years of Cobdunlsm, railway servants in the United doni get a week on an average, and. including such skilled latoor- as locomotive 'engineering. "Today the country Is torn by strikes and the, masses are seething with _mot.ive engineers, has the journal compared the purchasing power of money irfa. free trade country as com- pared with that in a protected one? has it considered wheth- er "wages in the latter have kept pace with the rising cost of living? Has it thought oiit why the iabor market in Great Britain Is inundated by for- eigners from the protected countries of Europe willing to work at a lower rate of wages than the British work- in an is receiving? We trow not, or it would not be so rash in tilting against the principles of free Regarding the prevalence of strikes and discontent, are protected coun- tries free from them? It would be absurd to-imagine so. Again we may Somebody up Pincher Creek way is raising Cain because the bylaw auth- orizing the expenditure, of for a new town hall'was irregular.

In jumping to conclusions in this fashion the News betrays a deplor- able ignorance cf the history of Rev ehiy years ago.
