It was only right that the Liberal members ot the upper chamber should demand .that the Senate should not be increased In membership from the west, until the west had an opportunity ;o choose its increased representation in the House of Commons tlie popular and elective chamber. Under Hie government's proposal the plan was to overcome the Liberal majority-in the Senate in order that, all its legislation, no mat- ter how pernicious it might be, would become effective. Just now about the only source of power for assistance at Ottawa the westem. people have is th'e Liberal majority in tho Senate. HOW IT HAPPENED The Liberal Senators made a wily play when the Farmers Bank bill was before the Senate for .consideration. Senator Bostock, Liberal leader, de- clared that the Senate should pass the measure, as it was a money bill, and the responsibility for it rested upon the bar.

Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian are in the field against "Whitney in Ontirio but the Premier can still rely on the solid and enthus- iastic support of the cabinet ministers. A new political party made up of Liberals and Conservatives is being quietly formed in 'Alberta, according to the Calsary Standard.

REDISTRIBUTION In describing tho redistribution, Mr. Buchanan insofar as the west was concerned, he was satis- fied. The Lethbridge constituency showed strong. Liberal signs, the spot in it from the party standpoint, being the where, if the people want a period of prosperity, they may soon be con- vinced -tliat. Sir Wilfrid Latirier has will'give it to them, and Tie that a Liberal mem- ber would be returned r.ext election, to support, a .Liberal gov- ernment.

Edmund B. Flynn, of Quebec has been appointed judge of the superior court for the judicial district of Mont- magny and Beauce to succeed Mr. Justice Cimbn, retired. The. Ottawa Free Press says Hon. Dr. Rheaume will be the next Lieu- tenant Governor of Ontario and that after the provincial elections Sir Jas. In explaining the lab'er'al policies in respect to tariff -questions, Mr. Bu- chanan pointed out that they are just the same as in 1911, with the exception that they are broader. The Liberal party went .bn.record during the session' just in- favor oi free wheat, when the gov- ernment was given an opportunity of taking the tariff.-6ft -wheat, and when the Liberals hoped (or awhile that it was going to be it did iu 1911. In support of .the claim that iree: interchange-" of ccrtsfin commo- dities would -benefit the producer, ho ited the case of. live stock, and how the hog market in the west was saved by the shipment of duty-free pork to the American coast cities. Then; can be no doubt as to the said, he, "and the farmers of the west will refuse to be hood- winked on the wheat, question." FREE IMPLEMENTS The Liberals are hrdader in their policy now than j ever before with re- gard to the duty on agricultural im- plank in their platform of progress, they standing strongly in favor of absolutely free entry of all agricultural implements. To prove that the party is perfectly in earnest, in this regard, Mr, Buchanan called to mind the betrayal ol the party by Sir Lyman Melvin Jones, president of the Massey-Har- coinpany, who withdrevv and for- sook the Liberal ranks when their policy on implements was announced. A RETROGRADE POLICY On the other hand, the Conserva- tive policy which was expressed in the budget debate by tlie Minister of finance who made the declaration that the Conservatives, still..stood for high not be very well misunderstood by'the people, es- pecially as they had followed this remark with proposals for higher tariff changes. ____________________________ C.

The Regina Province made an error the other day that may bring about !ts exclusion from the Nationalist party. It published as a portrait of Albert Sevigny, M.P. for Dorchester, a photo of D. A. Lafortune, M.P. for Montcalm. The two are enemies; also is about 70 yean; of age, and Sevigny isn't thirty. The W'.ness very well argues that while Alta, as an abbreviation is not so bad, the full aame of this province should be used iiK It Is the oae territorial monument to the late Prince Consort, "the man Avhose virtues did so much to redeem our royal family from its lonu record of grossnesa, the father of our kmgs." Few of ua probably realized from >-here the name of our province was actually derived and the abbreviation "Alta" did not assist ire in recollect- ing it. ate at Ottawa. An arrangement is proposed In Nor- oiK county whereby A. C. Pratt, Con- ervative, South Norfolk, and Col. T. R. Atkinson, Liberal, North Norfolk, -ill be returned to the Legislature by acclamation. Both parties in the :ounty are agreeable. Rev. Br. Chown, general superin- .endent, speaking at the Montreal Methodist Conference, said: "For lie time being, negotiations for union are, at an end. Methodists must ga- ther themselves together and be true :o their own ideals, and wait for de- velopments from the other side." Alberta's new Deputy Attorney Gen- J. D. Hunt, is very highly regard td in Manitoba. The Winnipeg Free Press aaye of. him: "Mr. Hunt had a long and honorable career in this province, first as an cdacatlonallsi and a lawyer, at Car berry and-at Winnipeg. He was a public-spirited citlztn who took an act ive and creditable part in nolitica movements. He was one of a notable band of candidates who, eleven years ago, trie-i unavallinfily to free Manl toba from RoblinUm before it got a on tie province." and Mann They said, let Mackenzie and 3Iann, ate immensely up their own money until the Canadian Nor- SENATOR H.'

P., I was assured that the line from them the senior partners inasmuch as Regina to Moose Jaw was heading they had practically given Mackenzie j for Lethbridge, hut that road is who short of funds and building will not proceed very fast. I must say that I have met with every consideration from the heads of the Canadian Paci- fic, and I believe that road is earnest in their wish io supply facilities in the south-country, but thejr too are thern is on its feet, instead of ask- ing the people for further aid. The company should have, in the opinion of Mr. Buchanan, completed j handicapped for funds." their branch lines, made them pay I FARMER'S BANK and then gone after their pet trans- continental instead of burdening the country with a further debt without vestige of aid from the two 'pirates" themselves. COMING Mr. Buchanan thinks it-very doubt- ful if the C. N. R. will get into the district southeast of the city. There is no guarantee that they will even finish the transcontinental for which the was.granted. If there was any monej' left after the line was finished, it was to he expended branch lines already projected, but then there was no euarantee that, theW would he any left.

All the Conservatives swal- lieu of other duties. A homesteader lowcil their previous statements may now get the patent to his pre- emption at the time he proves up on favor of a Canadian navy and said that they would give for his homestead, hy the payment of the building of three ships to donate the entire amount, less the interest to the North Sea fleet, in order to that formerly was imposed. This leg- saive the Nationalists, who argued that this gift would pay all of Can- ada's debts to the Empire. On the other hand the other part of the coalition, the Conservatives, when speaking in Ontario, declared the islation was earnestly fought for by the sitting member, and a glorious victory, that will mean much to every homesteader, was won. NATURALIZATION TO INCLUDE EMPIRE Mr. Buchanan described the Natur- alization Act, and commended the changes in every way except as re- gards the power oi appeal to the sec- retary of state, which he thought un- necessary and unwise. THE NAVAL QUESTION One of the fullest and ablest ex- planations ;ii tile naval situation ever heard from a Lelhhridgc platiorm, was given by Mr. Buchanan, attention being rapt during the entire period, fjoitig hack to the session ot 1912-13, when the House was first confronted with ilic emergency cry, Mr. Buchan- Touching on the Farmer's Bank, Mr. Buchanan stated that it was used merely as a bait lor the getting of votes, the Conservatives promising an took the whole navy question from the reimbursement ol the losses sus-; beginning to end, and nobly defended lained merely to induce support oi his chieftain through every byway oi the party candidates. The saner Con- j the maze. servatives, too, were very much op- Tlie Liberal party could not see led to the placing of any blame in i the emergency except as it existed in posi. this connection on the Minister Finance at that time, Mr. Fielding oi the Conservative ing, (with tile Nationalists. In alliance Iflll Laur- who is absolutely free from any I ier was bitterly attacked in the Pro- iilame in connection witii the matter. Mr. Buchanan heartily CKiimcnded the! action of tile Senate in giving the; navy, and in Ontario he j rince of (Juebcc as an Imperialist he- e! cause he was in favor of a Canadian thirty-five million was only an emer- gency gift and a permanent policy oi naval defence would follow later. Mr. Buchanan emphasized the fact that prior to 1S11 the Liberals and Con- servatives were united on a Canadian the Hon. Sam, minister of militia, and his increase oi 50 per cent, .in HID grant obtained for military de- fense, slating tirnl- halt the money voted for this purpose this year would have been much, better spent in the agricultural department. In closing his address, Mr. Buchan- an counselled his constituents and members of the Young Liberal Club, to work with the hope that, the new constituency of Lethbri'ige will he represented after the next election, by a Liberal and that he will support a Liberal government. Ths support ol the great leader and Ms policies, has hern wonderfully-' strengthened in tho cast, where the people are beginning to realize that they benefit and suf- naval policy and the change on the for with the west, and that what part of the'Conservatives was due to benefits one, helps the other, and their alliance with the Nationalists said Mr. Buchanan, Laurier thi of Quebec. In a masterly defence of the posi- tion Sir Wilfrid Laurier had been placed, in by these scheming politi- cians, Mr. Buchanan said, in part "Sir Wilfrid Laurier is a French- Canadian, and a Catholic, but above all and first of all he is a .Canadian. In Ontario he a Catholic, and in Quebec the electors w-erc told that he was forsaking the Catholic church, this and his nationality were used -against him, hut I want to say, that no man ever did so much to cement the ties oi race and reli- bill a six months' hoist. INTEREST ON PHE-EMPTIONS REMOVED One of 'the greatest victories for the the abused because he was enough to Canar'fi. This stand on the part o! the Conservatives, he said, gion toward the upbuilding of a great and united Canada, as did Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and no man has done was vilely I so much to separate and divide the not loyal different elements as H.

Sonirs by J. T. pctts, rendered in his own pleasing stylo, interspersed the program, and were well received. At the ronclusion a hearty vote oi thanks was tendered Mr. Buchanan by G. K.
