Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, MAY 11, 101S THE LETIIDRIDGE DAILY IIEllALD TAGE SEVEN THE BUDGET DEBATE , Ottawa, Jlay 11.-Somo tiny when Tnlon Oovonimeul or Homo othor GrjvRniTileut Iihh nppronRhoil a doRrriu of purfoutlon not attatnablu Juat uow, ,wu fiJiall liavo tho loslslatlTo pro-grammo so onlorcd that tho budKot cninoH down at tho hOKlmilnK of thu soaslon, leaving Parliamont froo to liundlo othor matters at longtli and with doUberation. , ' As It happcnii, this sosaion hns boon Btutrod with tmportant ' moaa-urea, nnd tho bndgat, oomlnn lato in tho day, loavos 'othor Important mcasurea Btrandod hleh and dry.

No Adequate Discussion. This sign, HtralRht from the heart, hits off the general I'eollne of a Parliament which Is iiullo ro.slBn-od to letting the Cabinet run things on peremptory llnoM until tho proB-poct of iiRRrn render!! It advlaablo to chirp up again. It inanns tlial Parliament will prorpguo by May 17. It also moans "that the, ('. N. R. arbitration win get by wiUioul ad-cciuate digcusaiou. Tho c;. N. il.

As a matter of fact ^wo are fti better shape to meet our aftor-tho war problems than jyiy other bolllg orent country with tho oxcoption of tho United States. Hinted a Lot. Tho budget debate has saUi little but hinted a lot. It has not bticn a debate so much as an Intiniatfon from tlie various sections that certain things will bo talcuu up and threshed out when the sky clean). It has boon, so to .speak, u throat and a promise. .Inst enough ha.s l)oon let out by tho players In tho game to "tip their liand." .ludgment is kuk-pended-until to-morrow, said tomorrow being the end of the war. Then may we expect tho Western farmer to malte his drive for tree agricultural implements, and the Kastern miinufacturer for tho preservation of Ills tariff privileges, nnd the consumer everywhere for a fighting chance for a square meal at a reasonable price. Tho jarring elements, now lield together by a common danger, will got into each other'� hair right mel-rily and Union (!ovorn-ment will have \ta worlc cut out to justify its name. Where Is Quebec? Meanwhile where is Quebec? Que-bec is where every other province in Canada is-liite Brer Rabbit, lylu' low. It there i.s any difference it probably is that Quebec lies just a little lower than the oilier members of Confederation. Caution, silence-these are tho qualitios which Quebec has developed to tlio nth power. Having got in wrong once, Quebec la now golfing in right. She will not open her moutli to put iier foot in it. And thl.^, let mo tell you, is some feat, because Sir Wiia-i 1 haa at his baclc a band of young onthu-siasta, bright fellows, bubbling with rhetoric, wlio simply champ to bo at it. Tho solid Quebec, whatever may be its demerits otherwise, is a credit to Parliament from the point of ability and luteillBence. Moreover, it is under the best ot disclpiino from ita beloved leader. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and as tho Chief has said "fe.v speochoa or none at all." Quebec is not Eay,ng anything just now and is; Eaying It vory well Indecii One i.-, nevoi' done admiring thi." rea',.-;iint of young Hotspurs like Lucien Canuoii au'l (.ai-tain Pivvcra, v/ho !>n-. liuim-i;-?ivo3 under ouiors and ;-!:,v the waiting game witli all the hatleace of old hands. / Ono suspects that Sir Wilfrid has taken a leaf out of tho late John Uedmou's book, who did more (or tho cause of Ireland by koaping hia followers quiet about it than all his predecessors had done by talking it to death. Under this wise policy, Quebec grows stronger in public opinion every day, and as the recruiting returns roll in and Quebec is revealed as doing her bit wiiling-ly and over cheerfully with the rest of us, her position is further Iniy proved. In short, wliat we had at the last general election was a family Jar, and Quebec is now reaping tile benefits of it in a better understanding and more cordial co-operation between her and her sister provinces. There are those wlio do not ho.sitate to say that the ploction ot 1917 was the best thing that ever happened to Quebec-that It brings in its train tho death of clericalism not only InnQiuebec but blaewhore national education and other blessings too numerous to mention. When Quebec and Ontario are equally free from bigotry we may besin to look for a United .Canada. Meanwhile Quebec sits tight. Sho is ready for a working alliance with somobody not yet, perhaps, but soon. It would uot surprise lier to find her old enemy Ontario making up to,her some day. Qu'obec's theory is that tho natural ^Radicals are all West ot Lake Superior and tho natural Conservatives are all East, so that a rapprochement between Quebec and Ontario is a much more reasonable arrangement than a rapprochement hbetwoen Ontario and the West. Time will. tell. Meanwhile Quebec, having a heart for �ny fate that will get her in right again, offers no amondmeuts to the budget proposals that miglit queer her afterwards. Messrs. Tobln and McCrea may got up and curse tho business tax, but that is their only littlo affair and commits Quebec to nothing. The taxation proposals have never been in danger from Queb\3c criticism at any stago of the game. Quebec agi-ees with the good King .Solomon, who said tliere was a time for every-thing-and this is not the tlmo tor chiding. H. F. GADSBY.

Already there have been substantial curtailments in production and the freight situation has made deliveries extremely difficult. So now is the time of all times to buy the car of your choice. If you put the matter off too long you may have to compromise on "any car"* that is available. And that is never a very satis' factory way to solve your automobile problem. If you are, like the average intelligent ^American, you have alreaay decided what car you prefer and can aflford to purchase. Quite naturally, we hope that your choice has been a Paige. But, at any rate, be sure to buy the car that you bcliwe in--and biiy, it immediately. In the Eeld of mechanical products, the Paige nameplate stands as an unquestioned guarantee of honest manufacturing and fair dealing. It is a hall mark of quality-a symbol of cur obligation and the confidence and respect which our product enjoys. We ask you to buy that nameplate-rather than four wheels and a painted body. We ask you to buy a reputation that has en' dured through many fitful periods'in the motor car industry-a reputation that will endure so long as Paige cars are made for and sold to the American people.
