Most extraordinary. I Responsibility For Corrupt Politics F THERE IS a bad servant in the boutohold look out (or tbe mistress. If you find a bad public servant, look out for the public. If the capitalist persiats ia corrupting busineaa and ia leaguing himself with dishonest servants, he is culpable and his own enemy. If the laboring man supports candidates who tolerate violence and other practices outside the law, he is supporting a candidate wlio stands for corrupting influences that not only bring his cause to an end. but will bring the country 10 an end. both the capitalist and the laboring man look to the corruption that is in their own classes." Thus spoke Theodore Roosevelt, former president of the I'nited States, and one of the greatest exponents of clean political admiuistration in the world. The iegi�la�or cannot rise above the class of c!'.i;.oi�3 who elect him. The puhU.'- wan is oui the private citizen iu an ofn-ia; position. There has oeeo much noise raised about the corruptiou of politicians, but when the individual esses art, analyzed, it has invariably ^sen found that the corrupt and crooked politician has been elected by an eleelorate which if not really corrupt is a' least caieUess and indifferent. The public man is but the outlet of the stream of political opinion, and no stream can ris* above its source. If public men are not what they ought 10 be it is because the citizen body is not what it ought to be.

Magrath Not Cenaiatant i Edmonton Capital.) .Magrath. the member for Medicine Hat. who i8#considored the best Weat-ern Conservative, ia going to vote against reciprocity on the ground that it should first be submitted to the poo-pie. Mugrath'a argument is good if he were consiatenf. The inconsistency of his stand is that the Conservative party in Canada always oppoaod the adoption of the referendum. Commiasion Qevarnment in Pittaburg (Spokane Spokesman-Review.) Pittsburg is going hot after the commission plan of government, and a delegation from that city is now camping on the trial of the state legislature looking toward the law allowing the main features of the commission plan for municipal government, the initiative, referendum and recall. It is interesting to consider the amount of waste and iirt that a commiasion could haul out of the Smoky City in a year carefully organized and lavishly finan cod campaign carried ou during the past six weeks by the opponents of the reciprocity agreement. That campaign has failed. It had Ita central feature in an attempt to raise the loyalty cry. Even the Conservative press of Ontario refused to repeat tho abaurd aa-sertioQ that an incroato in tho exports of Canadian farm products to the United States would sap the loyalty of the Canadian people either to their of government or to the Brapire. The Ottawa Citizen, tho Ottawa Journal, the Kingaton Stand ard. the Hamilton Vlerald-all influential papers that usually oppose tllo Laurier government's politics-would have nothing to do with the loyalty cry. In the other provinces only three papers are 'screaming"-the Montreal Star, the Halifa.x Herald and the Calgai^- Herald. But thore aro signs that even they are finding tko strain on the voice too great. Not only BO, but their readers are saying things calculated to moderate tho pitch. .Mr. H. M. Price, of Que'noc, for example, in a letter to the Montreal Star, says that the agreement after it goes into operation will be found am> ong the desirables even by its most determined opponents. Mr. Price is a member of one of Quebec's gi-eatest mercantile families. Ho has. as Sir Wilfrid has, special facilities for learning how the wind is blov.' ing politically. His opinion may he regarded as indicative of that of many of the big business men of the Dominion who hav^ not been swept off their feet by the Hood of "prearraag-ed" oratory In Toronto and Montreal. It must be remembered that tho strength of Liberalism is to be found largely in the rural constituencies, and rural Canada, we 'aiN> firmly convinced will stand fast for Laurier and wider trade relations with the United States when the general election comos. The Liberal party will then be ahundaotly able to prove the truth of the Premier's statement: "We have not hurt the manufacturers, and we will not do so; we have benefitted the farmer and the consumer."

Borden and Sir .Mackenzie SoweU can compare notes on their respective nests of traitors. Col. 'vlatheson, treasurer for the province of Ontario, has refused lo sell government bonds in New York. No doubt he is afraid of annexation.
