SO., A COBBIENDABLE ATTITUDE. THE attitude of Uie United Free Church- ol Scotland towards the Home Rule contro shown at the recent meeting at Belfast, i. an admirable one. Without expressing any opin ion on Oie political aspect of the question, it con tented itself by delivering a message of sympathy to its Irish brethren in the grave tin situation. In eschewing itself from politics the Uniiet Free Church of Scotland not only sets a com- mendable example, but restrains itself from add- ing-fuel to what smouldering fire. mav now be considered a _ -_It is not to be argued from this that it-is the province of the churches to keep themselves en- tirely aloof. from politics. They have their duties in matters which affect the well-being of the community, and in the consideration of there is no necessity for bringing party bias into play. But in a cpiestion, like that .of Home Rule, where party politics and religious rancor are playing important roles, jhe dignified Jioitcom- mittaTpositioh of the 'Free Church is entitled to respect. The Home Rule controversy, as a matter of principle, may be considered practically settled. It is safe to say that among the majority of: Bri- tish people it is conceded that Home Rule for Ire- land is bound to be. From .the main question the njatter of the exclusion. of Ulster is. the salient point under.- consideration. Without doubt re- cent events in Ulster have caused both Liberals and Nationalists to be sensed with the import- ance of heeding the' demands of. the Ulsterites vnlh a spirit of concession, so that the coniin- gtencies of fratricidal strife may be avoided. With a view to this an amendment to the act having passed -iSs tliird reading in the House of Commons, practically gives Home Rule to Ireland, according to the Parliament is to .be brought forward. Much of the excitement of the early stages of the present Home Rule bill appears to have abated. This will allow of cool deliberation in the framing of the amendment, where Ulster's demands will, no doubt, meet' with judicious treatment, so far as they are practically possible. the period of waiting the Scottish church has taken the dignified and praiseworthy action of non-interference. Any move oil the part of any section Or body of the United Kingdom which would tend to- precipitate action on th'e British government would at the .pi-esent stage be deplorable. It would carry with it a culpable responsibility which would not be lost in the judgment passed on it'by the great British .pub- lic. the need is clearly defined, the department of education is bent on carrying to the miners of the province that practical instruction which will fit them to he better miners, just as the agricul- tural schools will make our farmers'.' better farmers; One noticeable feature of the courses mapped out for instruction in these two industries is that the government is starting at the bottom and working up. Instead of establishing agricultural and mining colleges for the purpose of turning out a trained experts in the more technical phases of the industries, the department is starting at the bottom, bringing practical instruction within easy reach of all en- gaged in mining and agriculture, content that in a few years, those who have absorbed the know- ledge to be gained in that way, will create a de- mand for the higher institutions which will make them a success when they are established, It is also pleasing lo note that-the miners have signified to Dr. Miller, director of technical education, their willingness to attend the classes, and we feel sure that the demand be heavy right from the start. The provincial departments of education and j agriculture are showing in a tangible way. that they exist for .the. pebple for the departments. They are moder-'h'nes and making a success of it.

IN another column of this issue will be noted a brief outline of the special courses beiny map- peji out by the provincial government for the benefit of those actively engaged in the mining industry of the province who desire lo fit them- selves better for their calling. While the plans set forth are by.no means elaborate as yet, the ground work is there for something better which is bound to develop from the inauguration of the course, The Herald is pleased to see the 'provincial government recognize the importance of the min- ing industry of Alberta, and give such practical proof of their interest. We have said imany times that, next to farming, mining is the pro- greatest industry. The province has al- jfendy set flic record for all Canada in the matter of real, practical, close-to-the-land agricultural education by the location of agricultural high schools right in the farming districts within easy reach of every farmer's boy or girl. Now, though .probably not on such an elaborate scale until The Trades and Labor Council seems to think the commissioners are collecting damages .instead of getting busy and repairing them. No recent outbreaks of cither petroh'tis or iuffragitis have.been reported. Latest reports fate however that Saskatoon is in the incipient ilages of an oil boom, and London is still on the nap, so there's hope. The Peterborough Review counsels its read- eYs to "keep the big Conservative convention in view, it is important." Quite so. If a rally wasn't pulled off pretty soon, there wouldn't be any- thing to remind or to rally. When interviewed, the director stat- ed that -it has been most gratifying to him to find'sucfi a keen interest in these new devejpfiments in each '6( the mining visited. InT every centre the "school mine offi- cials'and the'official representatives of the miners not. only expressed their sympathetic but also assur- ed the director bfitheir active sup- port and assistance, in -organizing ,the schools anil placiag.the'workLHpon a permanent and efficient, basis. Upon the report of the director to the min- ister, after the present trip of mves- 'tigatio.tl.is completed, the details te lion, and malnten- fffiamtjr "to gain at least a good work- ing knowledge of the English lan- guage and Canadian civics. The prac- tical value, of only, to ..the also to the mine officials in the ordinary operations of the mine, especially in the. many critical .situations common to mining experi- ence, ris apparent to anyone considers the extent to -which the language impediment interferes under such, circumstances.

Early in the I each of the "centres of population autumn the director will again visit tirs.gho.t the province With lumber for the derricks on the ground at Coutls, we have the assurance that the Leth- bridge field will be prospected for oil.

When Montreal hears that our cops had a gun fight with bad men, they will-imagine the wild and woolly west has not yet disappeared. Mean- while they're adding a couple of hundred more cops in their own burg by way of good measure. The C. P. R. will sue the owners of the Stor- stad, and the owners of the Storstad will sue the C. P. R., but nothing can bring back the lives of the thousand who perished in the waters of the lower St. Lawrence. The Dominion government does well in deciding to hold the fullest possible enquiry. The blame should be placed where it belongs. -It is to be hoped the enquiry will lend 10 preventive measures so that similar accidents in future will be impossible. A Calgary promoter was mulcted of the other day for selling stock before his company was properly registered.
