HVCHANAN nt mid Pl JOHN VUUIUNOB UiiKiiim Manner Mtmbtr Audit Buroku ot Circulations Subi lDtlon Ratei: per week rtfllverei! by [ipv your Dally. fir 0 monUi SUNDA Y RELIGION i front hole allowed those who, in the way they_are accustomed to view things, are only too ready to coin the moral, to FARMERS AND OIL LEASES. Mr. Griesbach, has raised a very interest' ing and a very pertinent matter in the House at Ottawa in respect to the interest of the (armor. in the 'oil that may be found beneath the surface of his farm. Tie has introduced the sub- ject in a motion that should oil be found In. the provinces of Saskatchewan or Manitoba, in which ownership to the sub-surface is in the Crown; the owner of the surface right shall be entitled to one-sixteenth of such oil, provided that such owner ehall have made "a homestead entry, or other "entry, for the'- said land -prior to the date of the application for the oil lease in tho. sub-surfaue. Apart from the justice to the farm- er .embodied in the .motion, there is this argument which helps to sustain it, that in the present regulations as they apply in the Prairie Provinces there is a discrimination as compared with tue regulations that hold good in respect to sub-surface rights in the remaining provinces ot the Dominion. In the latter the member for Edmonton pointed out that the old common law title exists, that is to say that the owner owns from the centre of the earth_to the sky. This was also the situation in the West in to the Prairie Provinces prior to October 31st, 1SS7. In his contention that the farmers of the Prairie Provinces be allowed to exercise the same privileges as to oil allowed the farmers in the other provinces, Mr. Griesbach adds the argument that tSe: nralrie farmer la the -pioneer who has developed the country, >who is paying taxes to build roads and bridges, and who has made it possible for people to come in and exploit the country. There is truth in this, and the picture ha figuratively drew ot the farmer sitting with his hands folded while the oil lassee walka off with all the proiits, should it hap- pen that hu find the Government has given n lease to drill upon his pro- perty, and, should oil be discovered, has its sentimental appeal. It is quite true, said Mr. Griesbach that tha owner of the surface rights may himself apply for an oil lease, but' .whatever the policy of the law and the policy is that all men fact is that the real owner ot the land in the western provinces, the .homesteader, the farmer, the pioneer, is completely, out of touch with this oil development. The man who files is the capitalist, the investor, the speculator, the man who has ac- cess to many newspapers and scien- tific works and who is in touch with geologists' and other technical ex- jwrtBi The point in respect to farmers and oil leases was well raised by Mr. Griesbach and Is one which ia worthy ot attention and consideration. Sunday religion ia a term which has come into use MS it is applied to those who on one day of the week figuratively put on the clothes of sanctity, just as they put oil what are-known as "Sunday clothes" for the attend- ance at public worship, and on the day following assume their evcry-day garments and, with them, what is denoted, with a well-merited sarcasm, the "every day religion." This spirit, and it must be confessed it exists with some, makes the "going to church" a matter of formal ceremony. In these clays when the Church, like other institu- j; tions, is lightly held in regard by some, there is occasion for those who believe in it as an institution, just as much -was a holiday time as compared with. i as in the institutions which have their being for the wel- fare of society, to see to it that there should be no loop- PfflWftGEDEMIt and nuabtr after member from Lib- eral with production of much claimed that the ap- were being made by pat- ronage.'

Sunday religion should never be allowed to contain anything of reproach which the term, unfortunately, has come to carry. Christianity is recog- nized to be an ideal creed. The ideals which we_ have learnt to call by the name have their origin in Christian- ity. They embody the Christian precepts. Rob the world ,of ideals, and we lapse into the condition of the brute beast that perishes. If ideals are worth while they need perpetuating. There is the need of the constant reminder in the spirit of "Lest we forget." So the .churches in our midst stbnd as coricrete monuments of the ideals that go with thareligion we profess.' Within them, in the worship therein, there is the remembrance of these ideals with a fortifying faith in them given. Recognizing the worth of ideals is one thing. Cany- ing out -ideals is another, and a greater thing. It is by no means a selfish practice, except it be that worthy self- ishness that comes from the satisfaction that something worth, while has been done in the interests of humanity. Rather .is it too often an unselfish practice. If ideals are to be carried on, and no one with the spark of human na- ture within him'can gainsay the fact that this is necessary, then with it goes the perpetuating and bringing into evi- dence that creed which gave them birth and which enfolds 'them. So our churches as institutions become cherished heritages, which no one should allow to suffer by anything of the attitude which goes by what'.is denoted "Sunday religion." covery stick, It be said, a boitia ot mucilage which .was inscribed thus Montreal, New York, Chi- cago." Mr. Maharg, in the mention of tha word said that this last find was the one redeeming feat- ure of tha whole outfit in that the maker had thought fit to mark the bottle so. The articles mentioned are little things, it is true, but a Government which is so punctilious in urging pur- chases in Canada, which no ona, quar- rels .with, should be very, and even minutely, careful in setting the ex- ample. Just as "out of the mouth of babes." so small things are apt to bring confusion to well designed ar- guments.

Speaking in the House he referred to the prac- tice of members, when coming down for the session, sending to the Distri- bution Office for a few supplies. These supplies, we may be pardoned in say- Sng, furnished Mr. Maharg -with a supply of small ammunition which must have had a very teasing effect in puncturing the "Buy in Canada" slogan of Honorable Ministers. On ex- amination of these supplies to see where they were purchased, Mr. Ma- harg made the edifying discovery that among the dozen or so articles he ob- tained there was a pair of scissors made in Newark, New Jersey, lead pencils of British make, a rubber eraser made in the States by the Goodyear company, a pyramid of desk pins made in the Slate of Connecti- cut, pen-points, two made in tho U.
