It's a case iargely of "You're a liar" in Manitoba. Nevertheless the public is bound to believe a lot of evidence that is denied. The C. -N. R. is miied op in the Manitoba eiposures.

That' is to say, they ook money in preference to, omce, race the effect of withdrawing these etltlons would be to ensure the con- Inuance of the Hotrtin government in ooirer for the balance of the term ot Legislature. Nevertheless, once he Legislature opened, the Liberals legan an assault upon the govern- ment which speedily destroyed it. Dqes anyone believe that if the memhers ot the Legislature -ere renal they would have made the fight they did in the Public Ac- ounts Committee and in the Legis- ature in'the interests of the people? f. it was money that they wanted hey would have taken their share of the and the robbery of the pub itv would have gone on unchecked and undetected. The puolic.are not ikely to forget that this in'vestiga ion, which has already had such re markable results, was, made possible the perafstence, the ability and the moral courage of the very men whom 'Mr. Fulierton is now trying: to ropre sent as .venal tricksters."

COATS TO Action it swhat is waited, Lethbridge had better settle de- finitely on what it wants-from the Provincial government and then go after It seriously, sjst.raetieally' and itiwuously. We have asked for a land offlce, a demonstration farm and a Normal school. We can- not eipect to get all of these. Which do we desire most? Decide thit first and then start the canmaign. Manitoba Conservatives now want Sir Mugh John Macdonsid- an leader. They once htd him-as leader, in-fact it was under his leadership that Greenway was. defeated. He was jockeyed mt fty Kohlm, and now the see their mistake and want the "oU man's son" again: Hugh John :-Macdonald is honest and a gen- tleman, and Manitoba Tories need change to a man of this type. LetUbridge loses a good public ser- vant'by the retirement of W. A. Ham- ilton from the position of'saperintend of city schools. It is sixteen years since he undertook the principalship of the-only public .school 'then, in Lethjpridge-, and he leaves the service today with the proud record that that every public school now possess- ed by the city fwaa constructed under his administration. Lethbrldge's edu- cational facilities have .been wonder folly transformed in sixteen years anc Mr. Hamilton is to be credited with Bach of the enterprise displayed. He always aimed to keep the facilities right up to the needs of the city. The Toronto does not think Cerminlc powers csn keep up the pnrnt pace.

P., flatly contradicts and questions the honesty of Sir Robert Borden. Premier Borden won the com- mendation o! both parties when he censured Mr. Garland on the floor of the House on account ot the surgical supply scandal. It will be remember- ed that Mr. Garland's clerk obtained an extravagantly large profit in con- nection with the sale of medical and surgical supplies for the first contin- gent Now Mr. Garland says, in effect that the censure oi the Prime Minis- ter was a piece ot deception or stage play, and that he still holds the pat- ronage c! the county. If he does it is with the knowledge and consent oi Tie Premier, and the repadiation was Garland's for the nomination by his party, con- vention. He goes on to show that he has secured thirty rural mail routes in the hundred and twenty-three miles.

This number is more than halt the adult male population of. the city. The same authority cites a Maritime Province member with a constituency having but slightly over onc-iourth the population ot Ot- tawa. But, making due allowance for all comparisons, Mr. Garland must be, on his own showing, a wonderful scatterer oi local favors.
