Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta .PAGE FOUR THE LETHBRlDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, MARCH 11, 1910 iLetbbtibge Iberalt) XctbbrtDfle. HlDcrta DAILY AND WEEKLY Subscription Rate '.east neceBsnry (or family nr cm-ploymenl reasons should tUst be ilnift-ed. Tlif priisenl system of reiruitin.i; is imtuir lo good men. unfair to tlif> nation. The men wi- need innnt :it home are responding lo duty, tlii" shirkers Hre not. and llierc are tlious-ands of women tit to take' the iiUu-es of men who .no. The lion. Mr. t'ro-liiers is the man to make the move. Kmployees and workers look to !iim lo protect the iiome. farming and industrial situations. The call is ur gent. Tile preseni war will iiol. we fear, he the end of our fighting." Sir Sam Hughes should not be so enamored with his proposal to send .^1)1),000 men to the front by voluntary recruiting methods as to refuse to see other and better methods of accomplishing his purpose. \Vinuri>eR business men tired of hit-and-miss rei ruit-ing methods and have started a modified Derby svBtem on their own hook. They will canvass the city and tiud out the eligible?, and from these liiey will cull out the men who are more needed at home. Then tliey will go after the others. It the same plan were followed ail over Canada we would know wliere we stand and could then devise some way to do our duty to the Empire frotn botli the military and tlie economic standpoint. If Sir Sam and his colleagues at Ottawa are wise they will heed the warning of so eminently practical a man as Lord Sluuighnessy. St\at the typhoid-that's al! the people ask of the Board of Health. There are lots of "chargers " in the three western legislatures if Sir Sam needs any on which to disiiort at the front. Lord Beresford says our navy will not fail. And Lord Beresford generally knows what he is talking about before he' says it. Turkey has not asked for peace. Neither has Villa. Hut we have a suspicion tliey would like to if they dared. -�^n eastern paper advocates tliai the word "appendicute" r)e added to the language to save the trouble of saying "operated on for appendicitis." Have you been appendicuted? If not, why tiot? CANADA NEEDS METHOD IN HER RECRUITING Lord Shaughnessy o\ight lo have the thanks of Canadians for bringing to a liead an agitation ii|at has been going on as an undercurrent for some time-that is that the recruiting methods being carried on are not in the ! best Interests of the Dominion or the \ 'Empire. The Herald has on more than one i occasion sounded a note of waniinL; as to the eft'ect of stripping the coun-1 try of agricultural laborers. We have contended that such a move would ; strike a blow at the financial position \ of Canada aud put us in a position Avliere we'-ivpiild not be able lo carry : on our part in this war so succes.-i-Iiilly as if we chose our soldiers from tliOBO who can better be allowed to go to th& front. There are, no doubt other callings besides that of farming where, it too many men are taken, the country's' ability to help In the light In other waya would be impaired. -^^ ^ ., Tliia is a being pickoil in 11. The Finance MIti-Isler'.-J proposals fall to meet the Op-jiosition criticism that wealth escapes while al the same time they oucoun-icr llie te.x.'niment of legitlmato business, which considers Itself overtaxed ill proporiinu lo tho war profiteers, i'iu'.se considerations naturally keep : Sir Thomas busy hopping out of the : frying pan into tho fire anil back again Already both his ears are burned from overiienring angry remarks. "Seeing 'i'om" appears to be a con-siderablo p.nstiiue in Canada just now. lOvery train brings to Ottawa, large, portly men. with big gold watoh-chnins wlio are bout on convincing the Fin-uncp .Minister that any sound system iif tiixution is based on iutolligeut ex-^(cptioiis. 'Uon't do it to me" is their I cry. and truth to tell Sir Thomas Is i no! deaf to these appeals from his frietuls. Signs mnltiply that he is re,-ientiu.u and that Ihe wind will he ap-preoiably tempered to the'short ram before the budget resolutions take their final shape. With everybody trying to use hiui for his own pur-� poses the Finance Minister feels as I pri>mls(uous as a sleeping ear tumb-ller. What Is The Matter? ; No iloubt Sir Thomas wonders wliat is the mutter with his budget. He ! built it to catch votes and it succeeds only in catching hell. He went ou the ; lirinciple that whore there's flypaper I there are flies, but the flies don't j seem to heliave according to program. I He proposed to cut his garment ac-j cording to his dotii and then over-j did it by stating that he would do it ; for next to nothing and never press I for the bill-posterity was the word i he used. xVlmost in the same breath ; hu announced that he was budgeting : for perhaps twenty-two millions more ; than the Government reckoned to ; spend because-well, lo suggest his , real reason, because the taxing was I good aud a Conservative government ! always likes to feel that it has money I to blow. i This is the budget of the Prodigal j Son whose story I never read without thinking of the poor little calf which was ."acrificod lo give liim a good feed. The poor little calf in this j case is the Dominion of Canada. So I fas as the common people are concerned this is a false, pickle-hearted budget. It is really an attempt to feed ithe poor without giving them anything 'to eat. It's worse than that-it's Christian Science trying to cure a -Manx cat's candai deflriencles by ab-jsent treatment. It does as little as it 'can for the people with as much noise jas possible. I Why Not Help Farmer? If the Governmeni really wants to help tho farmer, why doesn'i it. as ,Mr. Oliver points out, give the prairie provinces the lioou of free wher,t instead of letting the grain rot on the I ground sooner than see it get awtsv ' from a highly-protected little band of �Canadian millers? As a matter of (act iit would help the manufacturers of Ihe east if the farmers of the west had , more money to buy their products. ! but this is a Government which does j not see that far. For reply wo have ! a gas attack from Arthur AlBigheii wlio I apprehends that the wheat'would lose its ideality south of the line. As if 'the wheat cared'. Ho Caiinilian fish ', when they swim over the boriUir re-1 fuse to accept the price they nnng i in the American market simply lie-' cause the money looks differrtn'.? ' So far Mr. Oliver'H t|ue.stlon8 have not been answered-why does this I Government persist in the policy of ihigii taxation and restricted trade I which nearly sent Canada to the dogs ! previous to 189B? AVhy does it slaugii-ter the free wheat resolution by three quarters of its working majoriry? Why does it overtax the people when I it says it does not need the money? i Why has it increased the taxation bur-; den on the Canadian people by seven-ty-flve million dollars in tour years - said Canadian people being less numerous than they were In 1911 and ihe I country proportionately less prosper-ious? Why does it go on overtaxing instead of cutting out waste and extravagance? Wliy doesn't it retrench? Why, to instance just one sample case mentioned by Mr. Lemieux. does it ' have two hundred and fifty post of-, fice employees in Quebec City when I seventy-five were enough In 1911 to do far more business? How long will \ the citizens of Canada stay 'and pay j when egress to tlie United States is so easy? Canada is not like Australia I a marooned island in the southern (ocean, or like Soutli Africa, six thousand miles from nowhere. When things I become too hard in Canada it is easy ' enougii to gel out. The answer to all \ these fiuestions is found in the tam-i ous remark of Nicholson, .M.P., a j hearty supporter of the Government -the policy is to "dash alongt" \ Incidentally VervlUe. tho labor member from Moutreal, presented a point of view -which demands attention. Why, he asked, if this.'Gbvern-nunil is tender toward the poor man, doesn'l It get after the Bread Trust which puts a monopoly price on the staff of life in the Mg cttios. Flour may go up or down but the price of bread once raised never takes a tumble. VerviUo's opinion Is that the honest, manly way to meet budget deficits la nil iiicomo tax. IntPlllgently graded to fall heaviest on those best-able to pay. Ho suggests that the Government might make a good beginning by taxing the salaries of the Cabinet Ministers. Gloom Over Budget Tiiese and simiiiir eritlclsms have thrown a gloom over Finance Minister White's budget. It is not the-glittering object it WHS when it started. The Opposition has taken the shine off it and even tho Finance Minister can notice the disfigurements. That he was never any too sure of it was to be seen from Ills speech which avoided the first personal pronoun of which he is so fond and shared the blame with his colleagues. "We" not "I", was the word. Tho haril boiled ego which was a uotieoahle part of his character last session has apparently disappeared from his public utterances. At the same time ihe Finance Minister yields none of the esseutiala of supreme authority. "Wo" may divide the responsibility of the budget, but "I" eserclses its luu powers. In otiier words the Finance Minister is the final arbiter in any adjustment that may be made from time to time. Sir Thomas has an eye lo the future. There are higher peaks to climb, notably one peak occupied at present by Premier Borden. Meanwhile Sir Thomas is determined not to lose any of his old friends no matter how many new ones lie may make. There has been a great deal of \ value for. the price.
