PARLIAMENT AND THE THE session of the Dominion Parliament, now come to an end, has been a particularly bar- ren one as it concerned the great interests of the Beyond a fictitious and inconsequential re- duction on a few ot theaiBplerneuUjjf tupd labor, nothing has been done to stimulate the basic industry of the prairie provinces. In- stead of giving him v> hat he demands in the full knowledge ol his own requirements, the farmer has been grven a sop with reference to mowers and binders. He has been granted something very much in the shape of a stone tor bread. export of wheat to his most com enient and best market has been denied the western farmer. By all manner of ingenious jts, such that free -nbeat will mean the TP' ,.011 the transcontinental lines into U> ap heap, that it will mean the destruction JIB flour in- dustry, and so on, the western mer has teen left to plough his furrow w' .out any aid .or assistance from the governm ,t of the day. The 1 withholding of this aid has r madr more gall- ing by what has been effected for the-manufac- turing interests by the recent tariff. But it is not the farmer of Alberta alone who has been disappointed; the province itself is still without its natural resources, promised by Pre- mier Borden, whose word was regarded as his bond, in pre-election days. Much v> expected from those -western speeches, but worse than the mountains laboring nothing has been born of them. As for the interest manifested in the west- farmer, however, the proverbial mouse has been brought forth in the shape of the reduction on mowers and binders. TECHNICAL EDUCATION. address of Dr. Miller, Director of Tqch- 1 nical Education in the province, printed in another column, deserves a careful reading and consideration by every citizen. The niovemenb comprised in technical education is a revolution- ary one. Revolutionary not in the it seeks to destroy jn its entirety the lines oh which i education has been hitherto carried on, but in its aim to break down the traditions which have in- fluenced the concepts of education, as it has been carried pn._ It is this-clingmg tradition, dating from mon- astic days and having for its object the turning oiit of scholars, as implied in scholarship, which has called for a new of placing manr. ual, as distinguished from mental training, on the same level as that by which the" latter' lias come to be generally regarded. The concept of the older education is well denoted by the phrase "a scholar and a gentle- the one being considered the sequel of the other. To make one genteel was naturally inter- preted as the scope of education. With it came the inclination to enter the so-called learned pro- fessions of medicine, law and church, with ils accompanying snobbery of looking down- on manual labor. Equipping the individual with: manual training, which at the'same time calls for the application of mind, is what technical education aims at. It is the creation of the prac- tipal hand in hand with the theoretical. By dig- nifying the v-orkshop and the field, and so at- tracting lo them minds diverted by the common fetish, so much of better service will be rendered. Highei education in the universities has done, a great deal in encouraging the new ideals of edu- ejjlion bj the creation of diplomas other thiin for mere classics, or mathematics, hut the reform to be effectual deserves lo start at u more clement: .uy sldge Money spent on technical education is expense munml should contribution press on the should eKccrfnlly render cd in oi me ultimate nuliouul good THE SENATE AND THE FARMERS BANK. THE deleat of the measure for the reliefvot the depositors of the defunct Farmers Bank by the Senate will naturally cause keen dis- appointment in certain parts of the province ol Ontario, but on the other hand the course pur- sued in the upper chamber will meet with the approval of the average citizen. The Farmers Bank failure used by certam'unscrupulous politicians in the 1911 election as a means of get- ting Pi onuses were made that if the Con- servative party was returned to power, the de- positors would be reimbursed, the argument be- ing that the Minister of Finance in the Laurier government was responsible tor the creation-oi the bank, and consequently the country assumec responsibility for the management' cf the bank Tins argument was amplified by a charge tha' the finance department had been Wrned tha the methods pursued in organizing the bank were fraudulent. Anywaj, the promise of reimbursement fo the depositors was eftecthc and the government proceeded this year to-.darry out the promise made by many, of its supporters to back the monev to the men and -nomen lost -Except by those directly concerned'it.was con- sidered MCIOUS legislation. It established a pre- cedent that might force a government to pay the depositors of bank that might fall in the future. The reimbursement was not warranted in the least. The Borden government on its assumption of power had named Sir William Meredith to in- vestigate the bank from its establishment to its inglorious end. His finding placed no responsi- bility on the finance department, and declared on the other hand that the blame for the failure of the bank rested entirely upon the managemen of the bank. Mr W. F. Nickle, Conservative M P., who opposed the measure, emphasized thi. point. In the face of the report of its commis sioner appointed to investigate the bank, the gov ernment decided to reimburse the depositors in order to carry out the election promises of a bos of its Ontario supporters. The bill passed tin Commons.and went to the Senate, where it wa given a six months' hoist on a non-partisan vote More Liberals voted against the hoist than Con servatives, so it is clear that the defeat of the hi] in the Senate was not due to the Liberal majoritj in that body. Premier Borden, at heart, was understood tc he opposed to the measure, and it is noticeabl that every Conservative Senator from his pro vince, Nova Scotia, voted lo kill the bill. Likel if it had Borden's wish .that this hi! should be adopted, the Nova Scotia Conservativ Senators would have supported it. In the Commons the bill was looked upon a the payment of a political debt, and consequent! the Conservative majority there voted in it favor. In the Senate judgment was saner am wiser. Political expediency was not the chie consideration and this piece of badly conceive ROB3ART.... 17th JUNE -VIDORA.V 17tlT JUNE THURSDAY, 18th SENATE .'....THURSDAY, 18th JUNE ALTAIAN.......
