It is explained now that he kept his off the Vice-Presidentifel con- test. Tlie fact is that the President was never favorably disposed to "Mr. Sherman unless he changed his mind suddenly. Mr. Roosevelt. den's not admire "Mr. Sherman either as a man or as a statesman and. he h is not hesitated to say so on occasions not remote.. v He was 'iirst associated with the Ca- nadian General Electric Co. of Tor onto-and 'Feterboro and was later general manager of the Stratford Glo thing Co. He came to Lethbridge to look after his interests in a large block of land and expected to re main-, only a few weeks but was no impressed with the possibilities o the country and ..particularly with Lethbridge that he has decided to remain to-go into partnership -with Mr. Skeith.. -Mr. Tilioy is a Mason and a pas master of Stratford Ipdge.

CAN THIS BE TRUE? of Six aiM Marries Childhood heart Eluding the vigilance of his six dull-sons and. a socre or jmndsooi, were opposed to his .second Ten- ure in matrimony, Eudolph Ploetp, ged 79, a wealthy widower of the illage of Prairie du Sac, Wis., ehtly eloped to Madison with hie hildhood sweetheart and neighbor, Miss Ursula Hunger, ajed 80. The arrUfe took place in the office' of ustice of the Peace, J. C. Fehlaodt. Ploetz, wanted to be at his ome 'town, but his six stalwart sous igorously opposed the union. They ot only opposed it, but they persiiad- d all the ministers and magistrates n the village and vicinity to refuse o perform the ceremony. Then, wilh he aid of their numerous sons, they stablished a thorough system of ies- iionage over the -venerable lovers. He Did Checkmating But the ardent bridegroom was not be checkmated. Quietly slipping away from home, he came to Madison and confided his troubles to Justice Tehlandt, who finally agreed to per- orm the ceremony. Mr. Ploetz re- urned home, confided his plans for elopement to Miss Hunger, and won icr consent. -The elopers escaped the watchful- ness of the sons and grandsons by going to Sauk City, a short distance ;rom Prairie du Sac, and boarding the train for Madison. While six of the sons were busy milking the cows and doing other chorea on their six large [arms near Prairie du Sac, the happy old couple were being whirled away to Madison. Kissed Blushing Bride Arriving at Mr. Ploeiz and Miss Hunger took a carriage to tice Fehlandt's office, where that of- ficial was awaiting them. Summoning his stenographer, Miss .Alta E. Chat.- terton, and-several other persons for witnesses, Justice Fehlandt quickly married them, kissed the blushing bride and shook hands with the hap- py bridegroom. Ploetz and his wife were sweet- hearts in childhood, but urere separ- ated by a petty quarrel. He later married, but she vowed she would .never marry, any-one .if she could not have him. Finally his wife died, and after a period of mourning, he successfully renewed his seige 'to the heart of Miss Hunger.- INWRTEO SILKS Ladies', iu all Men's BbirU Handkerchiefs, Tablacov- era, KimpiiM, etc. Silk m Wob, all quantities and China in Dmtte r Sets, Va sea '-etc. Frait of all kinds Hazelwood Ice Cream; 'the 'beat 'made 0 McGuire't Old Stand THE COST OF OBSTRUCnON the'" travelling 'know the Cafe 'ik al'cteftif 'and up-to-date restaurant as there is ;in Alberta, md that strictly white help' is employed. moderate' r FDMSc Whilst engaged in doing some car- pentering work recently Mr. Stiud- more Coulee rancher, had the misfortuna to get injured in the eye by a-Hying nail.

Try! it every day, ancl try it' in the (Montreal Herald.) Sooner or later the f anadian Par- liament may be driven adopt mea- sures to prevent a from holding up the transaction of public business for mn unlimited period. Ours is the only parliament of the kind that still tolerates the anomaly. In Great Britain, in the United States and in France, effective means have' 'been 'found of abutting oft a de- bate when it no longer, promotes bus- iness or advances the public welfare. At Qttawa we extend to any member and any group of members the pri- vilege of talking as long as they they please, as often as they please, about whatever they ploasc, almost whenever they please and entirely rc- ganiless of the delay of business. If anyone imagines that sober minded people will bear with an indefinite continuance of this he is apt to rudely undeceived. If the privilege of free speech were not abused no one would propose to abandon it, Jor there would be satisfaction hr reflect- ing that Canadian 'legislators were sensible enough to conduct business efficiently without being hedged ab- out by restrictive regulations. But the privilege is abused, abused" not only to the neglect of business but to the prevention of business. If members of Parliament will not vol- untarily terminate the abuse, people will demand the termination of the privilege. At present there seems1 to be hope that the abuse will be ter- minated. 'This indulgence in unending debate subverts the principle of responsible government. It makes the minority the masters of the country, however decisively the country may have de- clined to vest the, management of public affairs in their bands. It en- ables them to prevent the will of the. people being carried out, however clearly the will -may have been ex- prowed. The" principle of resupnsiblo government is that the of the people should rule through their representatives, the majority in Par- liament. The; practice of all govern- responsible or otherwise, as that the, men1 who control the public funds govern- the country. Now the talk-as-long-as-you-plcase about any- thiug-you-pleasc. system of debate em- powers the minority -to control the public funds by the simple process of talking about something and keeping up the talk. This makes them vir- tually the governors of the country. They niay starve the civil service, emharass the administration of 'pub- lic atTairs, paralyze the construction of public wOrks arid practically tie up the whole governmental machin- ery by the simple _ expedient of emit- tintf .language-.

A hundred days wasted in a session means SHERMAN a direct expense to the country of something nke Lwo and a half mil- lion- dollars. But the direct cxinmse is not the whole bill by any manner of meftns. Parliament has other bus- iness than the voting of supplies.' Tt has to consider also measures for con serving the general welfare of the people. To blockade supplies is alrso to blockade constructive and preser- vative legislation. The blockade of this legislation is frequently of more public consequence than the sessional expense involved. The present Mock nde has held up the Hudson Bay Rail way project and the nevr Dominion Londs Act, to cite for only two. Tt) the country these are matters of tremendous importance. One tou- ches the question of getting the crop to market. The other touches the question of getting settlers on the yacnnt lands. The postponement of the country would aot got the bene- fit of these projects until a year lat- er than the benefit should be felt. To the farmers on the prairie it is not extravagant to say that :the loss in- cident to a year's postponement of these measures would be more than the indirect expense of the wasted time of. the present session. But should the measures be postponed the country, would suffer .both the direct expense and the loss from their post ponement. These are only two of the measures at present tied up, and for such measure, the country must pay, directly and indirectly, for the delay. to Washington', as the head of the.: Episcopal church- in. response to the second call from the diocese.
