Members of Parliament do not lose their partiality for practical jokes even in these strenuous days of party, deadlocks and sessions which distinguished by "tired minds and tired to use the phrase of lion. G. IJ. Foster. An instance of this was given in the House of Com- night when the MUCH WITH OUR CAR OF MONDAY'S ELECTIONS The result of <-hc Provincial elec- tions in Ontario and Quebec on Mon- day was a case of "I told you so" as.far as The Herald is concerned Last week we made the prediction that the Conservative premier of On- tario would again be returned to power, and that the Liberal Premier of Quebec would be treated in a like manner by the electors of his pro- vince. Very few persons, if any, car- ried in their heads the idea that the Liberals would win in Outario, or the Conservatives in Quebec. The Hon. A. G. MacKay put up'a very strenuous campaign in Outario but he had very few issues to arouse the people to a state of antagonism against the government. During Mr. Whitney's four years control of the reins of office he has given Ontario mons the olhor "butt" was 13. A. Lancaster, the Conservative M.P. for Lincoln. He was speaking on the bill to renew the charter of the Grand Trunk' Pa- cific Branch Lines Company, when Mr. W. E. of West Asslui- boia, interrupted with some jwrtinunt question. Mr. Lancaster, who waf suffering from the "tired re plied: "1 will try to explain the sit uation for my hon. friomi. If h< were Investing his money iu the Grand Trunk Pacific main line, he would put the stock in his own name P. V. Collins, editor of the "North Western Agriculturist" live farmer's published at Minneapolis, n few "days the city last week. Mr. Collins is ou his first visit to Alberta and is making the trip wllh the object in If he were investing in the Branch lines he would put it in his wife's name." UP rose Mr. Knowles to the full height of his six fwt and in indig- nant tones he said: "I shall be oblig- ed if the hon. gentleman will leave my wife's name out of this discussion of public affairs." And having said this he left the chamber, apparently much annoyed. A few minutes later he went into the smoking room and there met R. A. Pringle, Conservative M. P. for Cornwall and Stormont, John Stan- field, the Conservative member for view preparing a series of articles for his paper. These articles will do much to create n correct impression of Southern Alberta among the peo- ple of the Northern States. The Ag- riculturist has a very large circula- tion and Mr. Collins is delighted with what he has learned regarding the coujito BO we fool assured that his investigations, when iuade public, will result in much good to the coun try and particularly to this district, U i i iuu n V ON AC HI C U RE Mr. Collins is a specialist in his lino.

Afminai LAM bjr Prairie Pirea also yoor CrofM ag- aiatt by Hail articles regarding which were widely his investigations circulated. To The Herald Mr. Collins express- ed himself as .surprised. and pleased. with what he has seen in this dis- trict. The conditions favorable to successful farming far exceed his ex- pectations. He has talked with, a number of farmers in and is convinced That that he had been playing a practical oke'upon them! an administration of affairs, that when all is said and done, left few opportunities for effective criticism. True, .he, in the judgment of many, has made mistakes, but they were not of a character to set the people of the province very strongly against him. It is evident that the temper- ance people of the province are satis- fied with the throe-fifths clause of the local option law. Nearly every Liberal candidate appealed, to the temperance vote by making a pro- nouncement in favor, of a majority vote carrying local option. Mr. Whit ney held .to the necessity of the three fifths clause. The most effective fea tare of the "Whitney policy however its plank in favor of cheap pow er. This had a great influence in the cities where the bringing oi power from Niagara means much to their industrial development. In Quebec premier Gouin had the people progressive government, his policy, particularly, on education and the development of the northern part of that province appealing strongly to the great moss1 of people; His majority is not as large as in Ihe parliament, but; it must be remembered that in the previous elec- tion the Conservatives as a party did not put up any opposition to the Liberals. Those Conservatives who -were elected ran ort their in- itiative. In the contest just now ended; however the .Conservative par- ty, was and well organized and its overwhelming defeat shows that Liberalism is strongly entrench- ed in .Quebec., (The Liberals also hat to contend with a campaign conduct- ed on the narrowest lines by Mr. Henri Bourassa, late member of the House of Commons. This descendant of the House of Papirioau used the race cry for..all it was -worth, .and succeeded in winning a couple of seats, even defeating the Premier in a constituency which he had held for a number of years. The opponents of the Ottawa ad- ministration will no doubt toast that the increased majority "of the Conservative government in Ontario and the decreased majority of the Li- beral government in Quebec is the handwriting on the wall telling of the coming defeat of the Lim-icr Government, but they should remem- ber that the greati-st leader they ever had, Sir John A; Macdonald, many times declared that as long as Si i Oliver Mowat Was in power in On- tario, Hon. Thomas Green way in Manitoba and Hon. W. S. Fielding In Nova Scotia he could carry the Dominion. It was his belief that men in these provinces voted for one party in the Dominion and the other in the province. Sir John Macdon- ald '-was an astute politician and-his sizing up of the situation :n days gone by holds good today when '.he Lauricr Government will sweep the Dominion when it goes to the polls. OUR POINT OF VIEW President-Roosevelt invited the "six .greatest men in private liffc in the United States" to attend a confer- ence at Washington. When Teddy leaves the "White House. The of "great men in private life'' will increased to seven. The Toronto Telegram advised West Toronto electors not to elect a G. T.

And the trio at once asked for an explanation It was given, and Mr. Knowles add- ed: "The worst of it is that my wife and I don't live together." "Bob" Pringlo got quite worked up over the matter, and insisted that Lancaster must be made to apologize and, making his way back into the chamber, told the member for. Lin- coln, what a bad "break" he had made. Mr. Lancaster was most pro- this- vicinity this is first class wheat growing and general farm ng country.

While, there he pull- ed what he considered an average sample and .it measured 31 inches in length. The Farmers in. that locality state that the wheat is beginning to head out.

Provincial Govern- ment today that no licenses would be granted for the sale of liquor in con- struction camps along the G. T. P. The. government has been deluged with hundreds of applications, but all have been refused. Apart from moral grounds the government finds that the expense of policing the distirct is greatly reduced where no licenses are allowed. No license will be grant- ed at Prince Rupert.

OF THE .STATES Mr. Collins is an excellent conver- sationalist-and briefly but in a very interesting manner' gave the Herald! the story of the development of the Central and Western States.. As late as-1774 all west of the and Allegheny: Mountains wns termed the Great American Desert. The man ner in which the country is opening up in Cnnada is a repetition of the story "of the development -of the .States. In referring to the part ployed by railroads in. ihis great work, Mr. Collins-spoke of the feasi- bility of the proposed Hudson's Bay Eoad. In his opinion the trade of the Northern-States and Canada will pass over'this He "also pre- dicts that in a few years a railroad will constructed from the Hud- son's' liny down through the two continents to Cape Horn, similar to the Cape to Cairo road in Africa. And imiccd this is quite reasonable when we-remember that Central Af- rica is wild and ut-.inhabited while the Americas are the reverse. Mr. Collins gave out an interesting Oar Fountain will arrive in the course of a week, when our ICE CREAM PARLOR in the rear of the store will be opened; "When we do it we do it well.1! Chow Sam Co.
