ACTION REGARDING THE HIGH SCHOOL One of the most encouraging pigns, ihowing in its expression lhat atten- tion, and close attention, is being given to the educational welfare of Children of the schools by those out- tide them, was the appearance ot the delegation of citizens at the meeting ol trustees ot Ihe Public Schools beld on Wednesday. It should be inspiration and an encouragement to the tryRlees to note this co-operation and to know that oulside the Doard there exists that sympathetic interest in what its members are doing for the welfare of the pupils and for Ihe benefit of the taxpayers. There have been drastic changes made in the High School, and, to judge from whal has transpired, they are changes that had to come. The resignation of Dr. Blaci, Superin- tendent of Schools, wan only the na- tural outcome of a condition into which the High School had relapsed, which in the circumstance was an Intolerable one. There is something man wanted in teachers than mere qualifications. There It that spirit oJ leadership which, ae- cordlng to the Inspector's report, was wanting in the present iUK of the High School, fhwe'is farther the capacity, of imparting the knowledge they possets, lo their pup lie, together with Uie. first essen- tial of being able" 16 maintain dis- cipline and so gaining regard ud re- spect. For this It 'is not the power to punish and the use. of the same that counts, bat the moral Tb.e possession of whtch mates the good teacher. The resignation of .Dr. Black ftftd the steps, taken by.the Hoard to effect an Improvement in existing conditions in the High School will be heartily endorsed by the citizens who1 take an interest in'our schools. 'Matters hire come to a head by no means too soon.

It is well known thai the duty on small tractors wls taken off as a war- time necessity tor meeting the great need for production. The removal of ths duty was due to the ftct that in thf; jrcat demand tor these tractors the Canadian manufaclnrars were un able to. meet the same. It was a case of the slumbering virgins who were nol to the coming of the bride- groom of necessity, while the wide awake virgins on the other side ol the border sensed and rose lo the of the hour. To show where the Canadian manu- facturers failed in sensing and plan- ning to meet the demand for Iraclctfs, it ;may be said that even while the duties were in force there were sold in this city something in the neigi bofhood oJ 200 tractors of three were.of Canadian make, it may hft said that were Ihe tractors available on Ihe Canadian market there would have been Canadian trac- tors and not American tractors bought, to save at least the duty which the tariff imposed.

It was Providence which produced the situalion In the west, while he ascribed the Halifax disaster lo the stupidity of the people sent by governmenl to handle the business of the harbor.there. He said If the government was encouraging settlers to go into the western dis- tricts under discussion, we should see that everything '.possible is done for them.
