E. Foster knows not the meaning of consistency. He parades in the House of Com- mons as a friend of civil service re- form. He wants the system based on merit alone.

In Ontario there is a general elec- tion in progress at present. The Conservative party has been in power there for four years. Civil service reform has never been mentioned. The only system of reform adopted in that province has been to fire Liberal office holders and appoint Conserva- tives to the vacancies. Mr. Poster is supporting the Con- servative party in Ontario.

KINNAIRD RESIGNS an Who rias Practically Managed Edmonton's Municipal Affairs for 15 Years Edmonton, May sensation was created in the city council last evening by the reading of the public works investigation commissioner's report, which severely censures the city commissioners and City Engineer Keeley, and the subsequent tendering of the resignation of Geo. J. Kin- naird, city finance commissioner, and the oldest official in tlie service of the municipality. Both the report and his resignation are on the table for consideration next Tuesday evening. Kinnaird has been practically man- aging the city's affairs for the past fourteen years. It was on the strength of severe criticisms, coupled with the charges of bungling and mismanage- ment, made in the report that Kin- naird tendered his resignation. Commissioner Pace and City En- gineer Keeley did not offer to resign, but submitted lengthy statements of defence.

TALKS Montreal, June Thomas Shaughnessy, president of the Canad- ian Pacific Railroad returned Satur- day afternoon, after six tour of Great Britain undertaken partly for business and partly for pleasure. Sir Thomas is much iinpoved in health and is in a most optimistic frame of mind with, regard to Canada and everything Canadian. He was much impressed with the strong posi- tion held by good Canadian securities in Great Britain despite the cycle of depression that has affected the Do- minion during the past few months. Asked about the position of Canad- in enterprises in British financial circles, Sir Thomas expressed the con- viction that ample sums would be forthcoming for everything in the way of sound legitimate enterprise, -and the British investor wanted to Jeel that he was reasonably certain to get a even, if but a moderate one, on his investment.

Regarding the All Red scheme, Sir Thomas said there was no doubt that the Imperial government is willing to co-operate With Canada and Aus- tralia in securing a more rapid route between Great Britain and the' British possessions in the east by the way of Canada than at the present time ex- ists, and apparently information is being accumulated with a view to de- termine sound and rational policies with reference to this matter. He had the honor of appearing be- fore a committee of the Imperial Cab- inet to give his views and generally he took the ground that it would be a mistake at this juncture to under- take, a faster service on the Atlantic than 21 knots and on the Pacific of 13 knots. The enormous cost of 24 or 25 knot boats seem to-put them out of the question as a business proposi- tion, while 18 knot boats on the ?V cific -would furnish everything that could be desired until traffic built up to Such a point as would warrant faster boats.
