For Remarks About NataJ Act- Lively Discussion Sri ifie Legislature Victoria Feb. of live- liest scenes on record in ,the House followed the reading of trfe decision of. Judge CleUlsnt on the Natal Act, saying :that: it -tfa? a hopeless appeal, and a mistake to feiv'e attempted to enforce it, and that- appeal sug- gested a doubt where no ckrabt exist- ed, and particularly on a matiet that was apt to inflame the Japs. Jti-dge Clement added that as parliament iad constitutionally expressed the -will of the .'Canadian people upon the matter, the Natal act smacks strongly of dis- loyalty. Justice Irving had said there was no hurry, as only a few politi- cians were interested. The House discussed __both state- ments. The premier and the attor- ney general declared it was highly improper for the judges to impute such motives to members of the legis- lature. The attorney-general declared Judge Irving's remark was a reflect- ionon the whole House, which 'had unanimously passed the act. After referring to a number of complaints against the judges, Attorney-General Bowser aded that it was his duty to protect the judiciary, but the actions of some of the judges was making the FREE SCHOOL BOOKS (Canadian Courier.) Premier Rutherford announces that the. pupils of the public schools of Alberta are to be provided with free readers. Saskatchewan, is to follow the same line as Alberta and Mani- toba. In the older part of Canada no province has got" so -far as this, though 'several larger'cities have uo- dertaken the task of free text books in public schools. The west has per- haps greater need for such a system because its new struggling settlers bear a larger proportion to the whole population Nevertheless there are-higher reason in the minds of who are behind this movement in tho west. Chief among these reasons is that of economy. When school readers are sold by the publisher to the wiiGujSuier, by the to tiie retailer and by the retailor to the parent, the cost 01 a set of readers will run from to On- tario just now is getting a cheaper set but these are ah out-of-date job lot which would otherwise have gone to the junk-shop. By purchas- ing direct from the publisher a pro- vincial government should be able to save at least one-half of this amount say 50 to 75 cents per family annu- ally. For families this means an annual saving of at least fifty thousand dollars. There are other reasons. The new- comer to wait for a. book. The poor child has an. equal chance with its more fortunate neighbor. In- vidual comparisons are eliminated and self respect preserved. The scho lars are better equipped, the teacher is master of the situation and school progress .is accelerated. Tha reasons are so important and convincing that it is a matter of surprise 'that the provinces of older Canada have not long ago adopted reader system for public schools. The subject is being ser- iously considered in both Ontario and Brunswick and the reform may come in these two within the two years. If it does. Nova Scotia and Quebec must fall in line. In the United States the free text book system -is being carried even beyond the public, schools. Of course, there are reasons again- st "such. a system. Some people pre- childreu only fer to. have their new books, lest they contract dis- ease from a volume which has been used by another. Experience has proven -that -this danger is practical- ly iioYi-existent. Again, some people prefer that their. children should" and preserve thfir school readers for sentimental reasons. But these and other objections can easily be met by-allowing a parent who so desires to purchase the books wllidi ,Ws chil- dren are -to use. The reasons in t'af or of the system vastly outweigh the few stodv obiections. THE STORE OF QUALITY: SEEDS! SEEDS! FOR GARDEN FIELD Select what you want early and don't be disappointed.

In her confession, Miss Sterling, who is only 24 years old, declared the child had stolen a pencil and re- fused to admit that he was'guilty or show any remorse for the act. The woman, agenred. at his stubbornness, forced the boy to place his tongue on the back of a chair, and then, with the. aid of a hammer, she drove the tack completely through his tongue and into the wood of the chair. This brutality, she admitted, committed on Saturday and was kept secret until today, when it was notic- ed by other attendants at the house that the boy could not eat because ol the" condition of his tongue. When the disclosure of this mis- treatment of the patients at the in- stitution the board of. directors de- cided to make a thorough investiga- tion of the other charges which have been made from time-to time.against the teachers and nurses, it being claimed that others of the children were beaten horribly by the instruc- tors in their efforts at maintaining discipline.
