W1LVT probably had at first Hush Ihe appear- ance of being Utopian, has in its presenta- tion and consideration come to be regarded as something practicable. This reference to the Postal Library, which from being n formula has advanced in its evolution by the formation of a Postal Library league. The vaslness of the scheme when the proposal was lirst brought to light might have caused some doubt as to the possibility of its being put into practice. But the fact, that the first member to join the league, and the first to be enrolled in support of it are both postmasters of important offices, should be sufficiently convincing that the is one in which the postal department can be well employed. The Postal Library requires encouragement when the benefits it wilt confer are considered. One hears a good deal in these days of the de- population of the countryside by the exodus to cities, it is not so much the dissatisfaction with their par licular calling that brings .this about, as the condiiions of which farrning in a great many instances entails' on those who'follow it. Asa remedy comes the postal library scheme bringing literary relaxation within their reach. It may not at first take the place of'those ultras lions which lure men to cities. But in process of time it can do mucli in creaung ami sustaining a interest .to counteract the call in the absence of anything else, becomes forceful. In this, if not in other aspects, the Postal Lib- rary requires support. It will form at least a part in helping schemes which have been worked out, and are being worked out, in countries old nnd new, for keeping the people to the land. In its relation to this economic policy the Posla' Library is entitled to respect. IT is not so very, hard to understand that the friends of Guslave Evanturel are working to put him back as their representative in the On lario provincial legislature. They have seen a case which is, in many ways, parallel to that o their former member, and they believe Evanlure has as much right to his seal as some of those on the other side of the Speaker who are still sitting even though shown up in a way similar to tha yhich brought about Kvaniiirel's downfall. It isn't so very hard to draw the analogy be Uvccn Evanlurcl and G. II. Ferguson. Hot transgressed the law in a way more or less sim ilar. Evanlurcl asked for u retainer from Ih liqijor interests, and didn't receive it. l-'crguson while, representing a constituency in the provin cial legislature of Ontario, was offered a retaine from the Dominion government, and look it. is true he may have earned it, but it was aguins rules of the House. It bears a close analogy to the case of a city councillor bidding on, and receiving, a cily conlrar.t. Sometimes it is "pull- ed off" successfully under a veil which the public at first does not see through.. When it does come to light it is called plain graft. The councillor may have saved the city money by his action. He "may have all the excuse in the world. But it is against the .'rules, and it doesn't go. Ferguson occupied a position similar in all the essentials. But if there is an analogy be- tween Evanturel and Ferguson, Ihere are also some contrasts. Evanturel didn't get the money though he asked for it. gel the money and kept it. He has it yet. Evanturel was kicked bodily out of the Lib- eral party, as he should have been. He is down nnd will stay down. Ferguson, whose offence seemed clothed in a cloak of respectability, was enfolded in the pro- tecting arms of the Conservative, parly, and wa saved by the application of a dose of whitewash, with the aid of the gag. Evanturel was a pirate in his way of going :ter the swag. Ferguson played a game which savored more f the smooth methods one would expecl from IB Wall Street manipulator. Bui they were both guilty in the same degree: Hie goes down; the other gels off scot free. Truly if Mr. Borden is sincere in bis promises f cleaner elections aiid cleaner politics in Can- da, he has some excellent starling places where e could make a mighty good showing if lie hose. Incidentally, we jusl wish to mention that we o nol hold the opinion that the Liberals are all good and the Conservatives all bad. But if we lad the assurance that the Liherals would always act as they did in the Evanlurel case, and thai he .Conservatives would conlinue to follow the example set fprlh in Iheir dealing with the Fer- guson case, we. know how our votes ought fo be cast so long as we might be able to exercise the irivilege of the franchise.
