Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta HISHALU SATURDAY. JULY 29, 1010 Toronto. -Tul.v. The elfihty-sev- j pnth animal "sesslou of the supremo Grand Onintre Lodge o.r British Am- i erica opened in Victoria Hall today; j In Ms address to the delegates R. W. Bro. D. D. Ellis, supreme grand mas- ter, referred. 'to the Irish home rule; question. "Our brethren in Ulster and ihe Uu- j ionists in Ireland are living Uinnifih dark and stormy times. At the time of our last meeting it appeared that Hit! question of home rule would be loft in abeyance until after the war. Now the scene is changed aud n govern- j meiit, whose has. been res- j ponsible for anti-British sentiment and j open rebellion !c Ireland, appears J anxious to mitigate its blunders by' bringing the Home rule bill into operation." For the last two years the question of language and schools has been acute in the province of -Manitoba. Amend- j meuts to the school laws, which left the way open for the establishment of separate schools in that province, re- sulted in the defeat of the Rohlin government. The government repealed these amendments at the first session of the legislature after the election which placed them in Not only that, but an exhaus- tive investigation has developed in the province under the Laurier-Green- way settlement. In many schools Eng- lish was found to 'be an unkuwon langii -In some districts two or three nationalities, were entitled under that law each to have a teacher oE their particular nationality.- This- gation proved the contention of the Orange Association, namely that Eng- lish was not being taught in many schools, The government repealed this ob- jectionable legislation and enacted a. law providing that English should be the 'language of instruction in every school in Manitoba. 1 heartily commend the action of Premier Nor- ris and his government in making provision for an education for every child in the province. He showed courage of a high order and I am sure their action in dealing with this onest- thoroughly will meet with the cordial approval of English speaking citizens of that province irrespective of party affiliation. R. W. Brother the Rev. Harvey 3loqre and others have exposed the method by which the Roman Catholic ohurch has obtained control of many schools in Nova Scotia and other Atlantic provinces. Real aggressive Protestant leader- fillip is necessary 10 remedy .'existing 'evils. The force of public opinion in Saskatchewan compelled an unwilling to repeal' -an amendment to the school Jaw passed in the interest of separate" schools. I ,bave ..little doubt but that in the near future a radical change will take place. The language issue is not confined to Manitoba or to any one province in ...the Dominion. The action of French advocates, combined with that of a school of politicians who have eyes i only for the spoils of office, makes the issue a national one. The. whole' agi- tation is founded on three falsehoods, First, the French residents of Ontario and other "provinces outside Quebec are being deprived of guaran- teed them by treaty or constitutional enactment. -Second, French res- i idents of Ontario are being denied, the j right to use the French language and i third, thaUthose who.; oppose the teaching -of French in 'the schools of I Ontario, to the exclusion of attack the of the French: people. As to the Brst, neither in the terms ot the capitulation after tbe battle of! the Plains of Abraham, nor in the j jieace 'of Paris in nor in the j Quebec Act'p'f 1774 was any reference to the question of language. By the British North. America Act French was recognized as an official language in Quebec, the; parliament of Canada, and any created by the parliament of Canada. ,Tbis, then, constitutes sole] constitutional right of the French language -iri-this Dominion. :As to Hie- second falsehood no at- tempt has -been made to deprive the people of any nationality in the use j of language.' spoken by them in any j part of the 'Dominion and no attack j has .been" made on the religion of the I French people. Many English speak- ing 'Roman'1 Catholics are opposed to -'exclusive use of French as the language of in the schools, j Surely they. 'cannot be accused of j being actuated by religious animosity, j But bilingimlism in the schools is j not what these agitators want. In i the conduct of the war the govern-] ment of Canada have honestly '1 believe, to carry out the of the Canadian people, by devoting -the resources of this count- ry to the v suct-esaful prosecution of j the conflict, it is to be regretted that] a certain type of politicians of mean ability have, instead of rendering loyal service to Canada and the Em- pire, devoted their energies to hamp- ering the" work of administration in respect to the war by resorting to senseless criticism and obstruction. I do not accuse these men of disloyalty but whether 30 animated or not their action must give -encouragement to the enemies' of the Eknpire.
