BENEATH ON PARLIAMENT II GOSSIPY LETTER BY GADSBY Ottawa, May 29. Even the ma- chine politicians iu the Conservative party arc congratulating themselves on two there was ao general election on whea the Roblin government Mew up, and that the votes, for the soldiers were ,not aboard the.Lusitania "when the Hner went down. One would have been an error in tactics, the other an error in good -taste. Doth would have been blunders and a blunder is worse than a crime as Talleyrand, shrewdly, remarked. To have shipped the votes [or'soldiers fay the Lusitania would have been a par- ticularly gross, blunder not so much because the votes would have been lost but because the boxes contain- ing them would have been an insult to high heaven amidst the pathetic, human washed up on the coast ot Ireland. It would have beea a reminder that there is no tragedy so great that little men are not pre- pared to take-aurasu5gc oi it to for- ward their petty affairs. Consequently the boxes have been put away till a more convenient time when the elemental forces of nature are not so much in evidence and ev- ery decent Conservative draws a sigh of relief that the Government has es- caped a terrible anti-climax. The plain truth-is that'while everybody votes for-soldiers at the front is a good principle in theory it is" a poor one in practice because it surrounded with almost insur- mountable difficulties. Even the Hon. Charles Dohertyj who fathered the bill, refused to. pledge ;his common sense that it was workable. One of the chief difficulties is sen- thing does not give with the stern work the soldiers are called OP, to perform. It is like ask-r ing Hamlet to step aside from his revenge to play Launceldt Gobbo. As the weeks drag an and the casual ty Usts increase in .length and horror the the_Cab met realizes mo're and that there is a time for everything and that the time to ask- a soldier to cast ais vote is not somewhere -between breakfast today and death, tomorrow. If this mail -order voting-roust take alace a prolonged lull in the. hostil- ities is the only time for it. As such ajluH cannot o'ccur before September or even later, it follows that any election which includes tho soldiers at the mast be subsequent to that date. Tremendous The -actual difficulties oi .voting...un- der fire are tremendous company of soldiers is'scheduled to'do 4ts-.bal- loting at a. certain time and place.

But it's folly to keep them, pore inem and doctor them. A chemist has invented a way to end corns quickly. It is known as Bhtt-jaj. Attach it and the corn pain stops at once. Then a fait of B B wax- loosens the corn very gently. In two days the whole corn disap- pears without any pain oraorenesa. It seems magical. After Kw-jaj plaster is applied, the shoe can't hurt the corn. After 48 hours there is no corn to hurt Folks have proved this on pome 70million corns. They are removing in this uay a million corns a month. That's why corns are not ao common as they used to be. plasters found them halE the coma that ffrow today ore quickly ended by them.

'v The ROYAL STORE Southard Block back; the ballot boxes jered horses arid 'the Borden Govefn- .ment. All anybody .ever asked for was a square deal. The British Government 'has put no obstacle in the way .of .votes for Can- adian soldiers at the battle front. England floes1 not'pretend-that there are no politics in., the British army. There were .politics in the army when Cromwell ruled cvhe land through a comrait-tee of Major-Generals. There were politics in the array not so long ago "in Ireia'nd-.But there has never jad them. The soldiers had a habit i been an election on the-ileld of bat- of electing Roman emperors but these catch-as-catch-can verdicts were never quite satisfactory. In fact the icsson of history is that Rome went Sown" hill just' a little faster when army elections became the fashion. Even, "at that the Roman soldier had a: decided advantage over the Cana- dian soldier at the front.-At least he "who'was -the; candidate. The Canadian soldier is asked to vote for the not for the man, an abso- lutely unprecedented innovation. Ballots Not Fair The wording of. the ballot paper is not fair. It reads, Government, Op- position, Independent. This "is liable to misconstruction, byrvdteriS not na- tive-born, or only a'httte while in the country. The word1 Opposition' as contrasted with Government might suggest that one party-was .opposed to war and the other in favor of it, whereas those who have followed .the debates know that: on no' subject was Canada ever so united -as on this war for freedom, humanity and dem- ocratic'institutions. The Inde- pendent is misleading It neglects ne- cessary classifications The Socialist, the Labor candidate, the Prohibition- these, men get the worst of it F. MacLean writes himself down an Independent-Conservative, two-thirds Independent and one-third Consenatrve, or is it the other way round The arc they 1 They arc not Independent and tie. His Majesty, may have shrugged his. he "signed the bill but he would probably put it down to our.queer Canadian way of going "things. No doubfe General Joffre will look at ;way too -but he won't necessarily think any more of Canada for bothering her soldiers .with anr election-when on, a more glorious errand bent The sentimental objection '.'is the one that counts.- The: mcnt makes it as easy as possible for the soldiers at the. front to'vote but the people--of Canada, can make it a great deal easier by postponing the election until the soldiers come back. The men who, iie gpod enough to hght are good spough to vote and a general election-should'- be'timed1 wun that 'H F G.
