March IS.-The expected has happened. That is to say Premier Uorden has rofusod a probe into tile shell committee. Mis arguments wore three. (1) that tho old shell committoo was so good that they had, at Messrs. Thomas' and Hicken's re-ipiest, to get rid of it: i2) that it was so good that it couldn't stand an In-(luiry; (;;) that this war is being settled in Knropo and take shame of yourself for trying to start anyUilug here. Of course the premier did not put his argument just that way but that is what his statements amounted to in the long run. Ills speech was a vague denial-It Included in the price the twenty-four cents royalty per shell to tho linn of Krupp and this aided nud comforted the enemy to tlie extent of seven hundred tiiousand dollars. Incidentally Sir Wilfrid paid his compliments to Colonel John Wesley Allison, Sir Sam's Justly celebrated money-aaver, who has never yet faced the public accounts committee. "A colonel," said Sir Wilfrid, "who never smelt gunpowder in his life except when there was a profit in it." Outside of uttering rebukes to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and other members of the opposition for daring to have minds of their own when they saw tho notable example of great cry and dollars going astray.

For some reason the.t!N[ew8 Telegram has always had ita^kulfe djjfc: for the co-operative elevators, why'It should boost for a system of rural credits and in the ne.xt breath slam the farmers' elevators is rather hard to fathom. Both are for the same purpose-r-to help the farmers. But, evidently the News Telegram Is moved to knock the elevators because the Sifton government iH supporting the system In an en-di^avor to get the farmer better prices tor his grain, while It boosts tho system of rural jredits because it is advanced by Leader Michener and which may embarrass the government, which may not now be in a position to undertake the scheme. In any event the Herald is quite sure that Alberta farmers are more concerned just now in getting better market conditions than in borrowing more money with which to farm on a more extensive basis. When the News Telegram �fights free wheat and knocks tho farmers' elevators the farmer looks for the nigger in the woodpile whon it is suddenly moved to pHy ou . his behalf and applauds Mr. Michener's efforts to lather a. rural credits scheme. Farmers, too, are not prone to for f!et that Proiiiier Borden �promised ha' injured dve employees, three of them seriously, and wrecked a liuUding. Kdward C.

Anotlicr piece of land tor park purposes ha.s been presented to Calgary by Mrs. Eleanor Tomkins, who recently gave the city a number of lots for tho same purpose.

When it comes to foaming the seid-litz powder of commerce has nothing on Premier Horden. He made a point of it, as I remember, that Sir Wilflrd's jusllfiablo reHections on profiteering were "aspersions on the manufacturers of Canada." Now what do you think of that? Wliatever happens Premier Borden is going to keep warm with tlie manufacturers. Anotlier matter touched by Sir Wilfrid wa.'i what a poei might call Sam den, who has a confirmed habit of (luoting letters, was willing to (|Uote one from Lloyd George to prove that shell prices in Canada were not as high as they might have been if they had been higher. But, as he wanted to cut the figures out and present the statoraont algebraically, X being efjual to GNjat Britain, and X-^-Y being eciual to Canada, the opposition naturally kicked at taking f|uadratic e(|uationH instead of tlic plain truth and so tho letter was not read.

When U. h. Tliomas paid his famous visit ! to Canada, this country owing to the luck of time fuses, had made good on slioll orders and delivories only to tho exlcnt of two per cent. The rale was afterwards speeded up, but Canada is sllll pevcnly-fivo i)er cent, behind Bchodulo and stands little chance of getting nioro shell orders from England until she catches up. One reason for the delay was no time fuses, the other exigences of the patronage lli't wlilfh did not look with favor on any shell makers but Coiuiervatlve ones. As afterward.s pointed out by Mr. (,'arvcll, the Canadian General Flcctrlo Company, which at thq very start of the war had offered to produce .100,000 shells a month, was turned down because Its jiarty complexion \vaa not right and even now it can boast of nothing but a measly order for twenty-Oso thousand shells.
