The state- ment, as made in the press, is that the government there, or one of its de- partments, ordered that a British patriotic song should not be sung be- cause it "was obnoxious to the foreign element. It is hard to believe that such a situation is possible in a Ca- nadian province but we must believe it, until denied by the Saskatchewan authorities. This is a British domin-' ion. Every man, woman and child who has come here from other lands knows that, and it was in many cases from a desire to get under the British flag, these people left their homes in Europe. They knew that here the. i English language prevailed. They knew that here church and state were separated. They knew that we owed allegiance to the King of Britain and that Canada was a part of the great British Empire. Knowing these things, why should any government or official encourage them in their nationalistic ideals? It is -wrong, entirely wrong. We do not another Austria-Hungary in Western Canada. This must be an English speaking west and a British west.' If we yield an iota to one for- eign element on these plains, we will have demands from, a half.. dozen other .races, and. it our governments are so. weak as, to yield ..we. will have a nation" of countless languages, and such a nation can never be a united nation. Now is the time to stamp out these movements. Governments must be strong enough to crush the ambi: tiocs of these people. This pandering to races IB a-weak- ness of parlies and governments. It is. not confined to one party, either. In order to retain the support of a section, or a class, concessions are made that should never be made. In Manitoba the Roblin government per- mitted bilingualism to run rampant until scores of schools were not pro- viding an English, education. Sas- katchewan is populateu by- people of many, races. To yield to the aspira- tions of these races would mean a little Austria-Hungary. We don't irant any province, of that character in Canada.

There is no excuse for Calgary. The Festi- val was provincial, not Lethbridge or Southern Alberta. Captain S. J.

The government seems to have given the Davidson commission the preference, for the very reasons the opposition urged against it, the same reasons which, make it such a after a company of 250 men had been i contrast to the brisk, prompt and vitr- >romiaed from the service.

There are hundreds of single men in .he-rlvil service at Ottawa who should be in khaki. Single men should not be .ppointed to government positions at commission. Two judges are better than one, especially when they are evenly divided, as is the Duff-Mere- dith commission. The Davidson com- mission, on the other hand, is a one man band and with nobody there to pinch that one man and dig him in the ribs, things naturally get along slow- The Davidson commission was ap- :he present time, and yet right here j pointed a year ago; and has not n Alberta since the war commenced brought in a report yet. tingle men fully qualified for military service have been given positions. The Journal says that since the Ed' monton telephone department an- nounced that by calling up 950 one could learn the correct time, the ser- vice has been so largely taken adyan- ,age that it looks as if most citi- ens have put their watches and clocks in hock. The Journal points out that the telephone companies in several American cities are convinced that it pays to keep up these informa- tion bureaus, despite the expense in- volved, because in the long run it makes people better patrons of' tha system.

But it has this advantage over the brook the brook runs into time, hut tho Davidson commission runs into money. The Davidson com- mission is mighty particular, almost finicky about evidence.

C., where it re- fusert to hear tho witnesses at all. Familiar Scandal. The details of the Small Arms Am- munition scandal are familiar to the public. The Militia department had in its possession at the arsenal in Quebec twelve million cartridges which had been pronounced "defec- tive." Sir Sam says that it was at the option of Uie department to throw this "defective" ammunition into the St. Lawrence river if It BO chose, but the fact is that it didn't. Instead it set a nominal of SiO.OO per thousand rounds on It and kept it In stock. The real questions are two, perhaps three. How "defective" was the ammunition? Wae- per ed. Doubtless, however, there was a fair profit. The Vickers company wanted two million rounds more of it at the same price and Colonel John Wesley Allison tried to get it for them. Just here the government stepped in. The "defective" ammuni- Dr. H. E. Young, former minister of education and member for Atlin, will assume the office of secretary of the B.

The selling stopped" right then, it having been borne in on the authorities that if the "defective" ammunition was good enough for the Vickers company and the British Admiralty it was good enough to keep in case this country should be rushed by the Germans. Moreover, they had in their possession the complaints about the Ross rifle and probably didn't see fit to blame it alf on the cartridges. Tills is the transaction which is to be investigated by the Davidson com- mission, and criticisms of which causes Sir Sam to explode with wrath every time the matter is -brought up. The day after the affair was ventilat- ed in the house Sir Sam came down to the Green Chamber with blood in his eye, the first time he had appeared in the house since the Duff-Meredith commission began aitting. One way and another Sir Sam resembles all the great commanders, the supreme Driv- ing Forces of be- cause he is fond of poetry, Julius Caesar because he is slightly bald, Marlboro because he takes a cold tub every morning and Napoleon because he favors fried chicken, but when he Is in a rage he resembles nobody so mucli as rude, blustering old Boreas. How he fumes and puffs out his cheeks. In the course of ten min- utes he punched Sir Wilfrid Laiirier in his race and religion, slopped Mr. Uar- vell in his metaphorical face, and gave a certificate of character to his friend, Colonel John Wesley Allison, as having more honor in his little finger than the Auditor-General had in his whole carcass.
