The recent discussions in tho House of Commons on thy Government's im- migration policy disclosed the existence of a new combination, which has not yet been given a nama but which can be aptly dubbed "Lit- tle Canadians." These-people show their littleness by a jealousy oi the growing importance of the West; and in fin endeavor to thwart the satis- faction of its neods. They thereby doing their best to foster a feel- ing of hostility in the Eust against the settlement of the West. There was a time when the Conser- vative party was decidedly favorable to the larger view of the Canadian nationality and the speedy achieve- ment of its transcontinental develop- ment; but, if the recent utterances of members of the Opposition bear any relation to the general opinion of the party, they must now be all classed us "Little Canadians." Conservatism, as exempliiled by them, has become a narrow creed, consistent with a pettiness that wuiitd disgrace a municipal council. It is, in fact, in a state of arrestet development itself; and it seeks to arrest the development of the coun try also. Its exponents arc croakers and mugwumps. They carp and cri tictec and slander. They haggle fo first class! however as Mr. Scott can make good photos. The storm causes the farmers to rejoice. Mr. Thos. Wool ford, in town this morning, remarked that the far- mers afford -ii holiday with such a heavenly irrigation as they were receiving. Mr. Woolford is sowing a large ar- ea to alfalfa and states that he ex- pects to keep on until he gets 300 acres of it- Come up tonight for Straw- berries and cream; ice cream; roast turkey; fresh mush- rooms; ripe tomatoes, etc. THE HUB Alberta Realty Co Aikrta DNS.

These men are "Little Canadians" in every sense of the word; they have little faith and they are small-minded. The cry set up by the "Little Can- adians" is that the East is sa- crificed to the Wesjt. They contend that the East should receive more attention; but they do not show in 8 LOTS ON GLYN ST.
