" The curious part of 'the, whole thing is' tliat'a gQvernment "which iis so' cocksure that it has the sentiment of the people behind it should be shy of giving them an opportunity for endorsing this opinion. A friend of Leader'Mlchener in Rod Deer riding writes to the Red Deer News that he is forced to. vote against Michener becnuse of his hostility to wider markets for the farmers of the west. And Michener will not he the only Tory to "f'sel the lash. The farmer's ot Alberta will not forget that the seven men in the legislature who are opposed to agricultural schools ,are also the men who opposed their "getting wider markets. They are steady on the job for R. B. Bennett and eighteen cent oats.

It Is possible that some day the incident at the fancy dress ball at, Mountain View will be used by him in one of his thundering speeches, and the same portentous Import will be given It as was rendered to the bonfire at Oardston. -In sympathy for Mr. Bennett the people ot Mountain View should have abstained from drawing attention to the "Uncle Sam" award.

In this connection it might >be well to point out to the electors "that the items for which this debt is composed, includ- ing $6,000,000 for telephones, were all. passecl by the legislature wltliout a single kick from the Conservative members sitting in the house. If no fault can be found with the individual items of the debt, Is it fnir and reasonable to refer to the total In terms of condemnation? Decision Born of Ignorance (Toronto Saturday Night) The recent debate in the Canadian Senate on appeals to the Privy Council shows that public sentiment is rapidly shaping to that end in this country. The Senate of Canada is the most conservative legislative body that we possess, and none, ot the men who criticized the present state of affairs was open to the aqcu-sation that he in any sense wished to weaken the tie between Canada and the motherland. In truth those who tavor tho limitation of appeals may very fairly argue that a re-adjustment of conditions would tend to strengthen such ties. For instance, nothing could have a greater effect in making the new populations of the west critical of the Imperial bond than such a decision as that in connection with the Alberta and Great Waterways Railway guarantee, when it was obvious that the legal committee of the Privy Council gave a decision with no adequate knowledge of the conditions, or understanding ot the questions at issue.

It may cause inconvenience to a government, but governments tend to become arbitrary, and. It does them no harm to remind them that they are not omnipotent., IMr. Rogers may have played the boss in a smaller field. It will-be a part ot bis political education to show him that he cannot play the boss at Ottawa.
