Sir no.pretence at hypocrisy. He admitted violating the principles upon which the Senate was founded. That was one of Sir' John's 'outstanding 'characteristics. He invariably was frank'cnbugh to admit that his action was for party sake. Tin precedent established by Sir John was readily accepted by tin Liberals when they attained powr, and Ihe complexion of tin Senate in a few years was changed from being strongly Conscr 'valive to overwhelmingly Liberal. Providence the mos _. cffecliyc, reformer of the Senate from a purely patjiy standpoint The Conservatives are in power again and several vacancies have ..occurred through death. These vacancies have been filled ardent parly men, men like tlufus Pope, almost incapable of in dependent thought. It will be only-a matter of two years unti the complexion of the Senate is Conservative again, and shonl< the Commons remain Conservative, every and any act of tin government will be sanctioned by the. Senate. The clamor fo Senate reform .will then cease Conservative newspapers The loud thundering of protest heard at'present from the Con scrvativc.party will pass, to be followed by the sunshine of.com placent appreciation of party servility on the part of the "re Xol until there is more of sincere convictioi on the. question of Senate reform can there )m any hope of, change in the make up of that body. But whatever the view held as to the need of a n fair minded men must admit that so long as it does exist th Senate has the .same rights and privileges as the House of Con mons in deciding on the merits ami demerits of legislation. great outcry has gone up over the action of ihe Senate at tl present session in amending hills sponsored by !he Borden go' crnmcnt. If Ihe Senate was not to have the right of amendin bills, send the hills fo the Senate? H would surely be time. Any man who reflects for a moment must con to'.lhc conclusion that to attack the Senate for making ameui merits just because the bills happened to emanate from the Con smalive-Nationalist government, is ridiculous. If the ameni menls were bad in principle, atluck the amendments, but to de- nounce ihe Senate as a part of governmental machinery is al- together aside from the cose and savors considerably more of parly rancour than intelligent discussion public issues. An .exnminalion of the nmendmcnls made will go fo show that the Senate was considerably more jealous of ihe priceless privilege of representative, government in this country than are those who jnake an outcry merely for parly thunder. Then came tin- aiiKiidiucnt lo the Naval Hill. The Senate ul not kill the bill. The Senate added amendment to the [led thiil the people should ho consulted before Ihe hill became iw. TJuit is vastly ditVeicnt from killing it. As lo Ihe justice of 10 amendment every elector cun decide for himself. Premier ixlen is on record as pioniising referendum and Ihe evidence f Hun. Mr. Monk and Mr. Ikmr.isba goes to show that a refer-, iiduni was the fundiiinent.il condition of the Nationalist alii- nee. The Senate majority held also that llu'iv were strongly im-genl on Ilie question in the country. Whether this us'itics the call for a referendum or not is, as has been stilled, question for individual decision. The Herald believes Ihul so .iv as Canada is eoneeincd Ihe Senate's action would be vcrwiiclminqlv endoised. What kind of music do YOU like best?

VulofVictioU X 1100 The llmd poinl of conlenlion between Ihc government and ;w Senate was Ilie amendment to a bill dealing Hie Inlcr- olonud Hailway. In tliis bill the minister yixcn power to mild or buy branch linos asking permission of parlin- uent. An act more subversive of the basic principle of respon- ihle guviMiuucnl could lumlly be conceived. The Senate did llol ill Ibis bill. Tile Semite improved the bill by providing for ccojjniiion of the rights of parliament. This is Ilie case in full against Ihe Senate. The Herald !oe- ievcs Mini when the public are fully seized by the Irue. fads the enutc will be given praise instead of blame. The whole tendency of Ihc present session bus been (awards Icslructioii of parlinmenlaiy privilege and the centralizing of uithorify. The cabinet of millionaiics aimed at spending millions on oads just when, where, and how they liked. The1 cabinet of millionaires aimed at spending thirty-five Millions on Dreadnoughts without reference to parliament. The cabinet of millionaries designed to build and buy branch coders for the Intercolonial' Railway "without parliamentary sanction. The whole tendency was subversive of the dearly ought right of Ihc common people to self government. ...The, Senate in all the amendments complained of aimed at irotcrting the right of the representatives of the people to a say n the expending of the people's.money. The Herald believes as he heal and passion and are followed by culm reflection, ihe Senate's actions will he endorsed.

There is no mistaking the earnestness of Ihe women of England in their terrific struggle. The lirsl bill of importance amended was Ihc government's Highways Bill. In this act Ilie government proposed to spend huge sums on good roads, which was commendable. Bill Ihc manner of spending was not commendable. When Ihc British America Acl was drawn up the provinces were given full control of roads. The government proposed to give Ihc provin- .ccs an amount fo spend on roads, lull reserved to ilself the right to intrude on the provincial domain and build trunk roads irrc- jSpectivc of the. wishes of the provincial authorities. This raised .a grave constitutional cniuslion. Men like Sir Lomcr (ionin hcrted that it is a distinct violation of'thc B. X. A. act. ilun. Scotl took the same view. The Senate added an amend- that before such work is underlaken Ihc conscnl ,of the provincial authorities should be obtained.
