BECAUSE Mr. E. J. Freaiii advocaluu a com- bining of flic farmers to beat out llie ele- vator trust, or combine, us il is supposed to exisl, lie is being berated by the Calgary Xews Tele- gram as having advocated llie organization of a combine. Mr. Freaiii, needless lo say, made no asserlion and flic men who so construed his remarks were either fearfully dense or delib- erately bent on making trouble. Mr. Freara iu urging, that llie farmers should get together fo fight a combine, alleged to be doing ils besl lo keep down..the price of wheat and using the far- mers unfairly at Ihe elevators, was by no means advocating the formation'of a Irust in violation of as intimatfd. Such criticism of Mr. Freum cannot possibly do that gentleman any harm, as the great bulk of tlie delegates to the recent Letlibridge con- vention and understood per- feclly what was meant by the allusion to combin- ing. The .malcontents at Slralhmore who seem benloir fostering trouble, and who are finding ihe.ehinify of the News'Telegram lo the farmers scheme favorable to a campaign for exploiting grievances, should'take a'tumble. The U. F. A. in convention settled the elevator question for another year and Messrs Sorenson and others should be men enough lo abide by llie decision of so overwhelming a majority. Mr. Freum may nol be the best man in Ihe world io handle the elevators, bul he is the man endorsed by the farmers and should be given a chance. Cerlain- ly Mr. Freani..emerged from Ihe lire al the recent convention a bigger man than ever. U is a thou- sand pities for the sake of Ihe Alberla farmers project Jhal the Slrntlimore delegates could no see the point. As lo the fight being waged bj the News Telegram, the "African behind the wood has shown his ugly head frequent to be easily identified. WILL THERE BE A CRISIS. "yiiB British parliament opened today uix! the much-noised Ulster cnmpaign will now as- some sort of form or slink into oblivion. The Herald does not look for as much fuss as be cable despatches indicated, .ami the chances are that time will prove that the cable service has been used by the emissaries of the unionist parly in an eliorl lo create as much sentiment as possible on this side of the ocean against the Iniperial government. The people of England are not worrying about Home Rule, md try as they may the Carsons and oilier louc alkiug gentlemen are not able to work up an> excitement amongst'a people who have been fei m Home Rule in the political diet until thev have lecome sick of Hand are ready to give Ireland almost anytliing she wants if it will only rele- gate this issue to .the past forever. No one in Englandris afraid of a separatist movement nor ire they, afraid of Ireland becoming an independ- ent nation. Ireland could riot live as an inde- )endenl nation nor is (here any desire to do so. The man who is ready to hurl innuendo'nt Ihe Irishmen has failed lo mirl English history. Tlie. bravest of Generals-and the greatest of the sea men have come from Ireland. The forces from the Emerald Isle hare done a full sbdre in the Mm. and Us produced i couple defending and extending of the Empire, and arefot romances that fell flat Then be today malchless as soldiers and intrepid upon history, and at field of battle. Ireland has produced brave and the chances are that the. people of Irelnndjthe noit ten years the "United .Voth- are as devoted to the Empire as the loud talkingSerlana'-" was also a ot loyalists who use their Dag for political gain.

A colored man in Calgary sent a white boy lo purchase a reserved scat in Ihe Sherman Theatre, and'when the negro presented himself ni the door he was refused admiUance and in- formed that he could take a seat in the balcony. Higher laxalion nol be the fault of Ihe commission form of government but rather of the policy of expenditure in the posl. Having houghl Ihe luxuries we now have Ihe pleasure of paying for them.

Manager Sherman repudiates the action of the doorkeeper, but Ihe thealre is own- ed by Senator Lougheed, and il may be that thai jjenllcman will have something to'spy before il is all over. However, .whether seltled, or defend- ed, Ihe case is one thai draws attention to a prac- -----lice..very-common in tlie southern Stales but which has no place in this democratic country. Because a man's face happens to be black is no .disgrace, and -it may be that Ihe. first man in which all orthodox people so fervently believe, of that color in view of his supposed birth- place being in a'country where the swarthy skin- ned peopls hail from.
