When was silver coinage first tion. will be very much disappointed. The' Telegram altogether mistakes the nature of the subsidy granted to tha Canadian Press, Ltd. The reasons It giver'asainc; tile fame are very far- fetched In its failure to grasp the in- tention aud the trend of tho subsidy. It is not only a boon to the news- papers -who make nso of the Canadian Press but it is a boon to the public, In that, were it not for the help sivenj by the same, there will bo much of desirable news unavailable to it. In the financial inability of papers plac- ed, as many of the western papers ure, in more or less isolation in their relation to news centres. The idea of the subsidy was to Canadianize the Canadian press in the way of giving facilities for the dissemination of Canadian news which would other- wise bo not attainable. It would be cheaper, even with the subsidy grant- ed, raises the ques- tion as to -whether what will be gained sphere of activity of the mofcrn woman will be, lost in the changed relations of the sexes as man- kind has been accustomed to regard Will it have a tendency, in breaking down the barriers which hitherto divided the seies, to infringe on and destroy all that chivalrous re- epect and regard which men are wont to pay women There, are those who look' with Eomething ot diemay on the enfran- chisement of the female, with her entry into public life, as tending .to causo.a loss' of that TvhiclTdwells in'.the average man in his regard foriTPomen. That Is some- thing -which time alone can but at the-eame time it cannot be surely apprehended. It should, however, rather'tend the bther way it women hold a "pride in their sex. With the principle of the equality of the sexes established, those traits of chivalry in man should gain in that when shown they will .be in a greater measure appreciated than they sometimes are tvomen. as at present by The deference paid to the sei will be what is.all ed by the male rather than'what is expected fey the female. For it Is not too much to say th'ero are certain women who take the acts ot-gallantry performed.ljy" the itiale, even in such small things as opening a door for them, as a matter of course and not one of courtesy to They pass by -without even an acknowledgment of this courtesy with a "Thank you." Trr these cases It may be said that it comes from ignorance of the social amenities, breJ in the fact that the procedure has become stereotyped by usage. With the passing into being of the equality of the sexes, it may be that the liUle'acts ot chivalry of men to women will be more valued than they eeera to be by some ot the sex, and chivalry will then have a truer meaning as madam and miss will have learnt to know iL fault be found'in the means used to keep It as'distinctively as possible so. To cheapen literature of aa educa- tive nature, and even the Toronto Telegram cannot dispute that .the press performs a share- in this m the intelligence of the news it-conveye, is a wholesome national policy. Thjs is what the Government subsidy aims at. The Toronto Telegram goes out of its way to administer a cheap sneer when It speaks of "Imperialistic men- dicants" in regard to the scheme for a further subsidy for covering an Im- perial news service. In the policy to bind( parts of .the Empire together, arid with others links the Dominion with the'.-.'Motherland, news from the Mother Country spread-in-.Canada hasj its important part. What -nas the ob- ject the .large sums that were-spent on the tour of the Prince of Wales in Canada were .it not to further the propaganda of closer Im- perial relations. The British public had to. foot, the bill on the occasion as well as the Dominion, and to pro- ject the idea, -with the intention of making it appear nauseous, that inthe scheme tho; British public will have to bear part of the cost, the Telegram is riot'only essaying too great a task in speaking'for Dritlsh opinion but is meddling with something which is no particular concern .of Its 6wn, with the risk It encounters of speaking "without the book." The Telegram can.use its editorial colurjnB to far better parpose than for preaching a cheap and maivkish sentimentality which betrays its spuri- ous nature In thetloak ot artificiality which clothes it. The true inward- ness of the "righteous wrath" it pro- claims is conveyed In the sentence "It is only right to state that the publish- ers, in Ontario and Quebec do ceive any direct or Indirect benefit from the Government grant." Hence these crocodile tears of the Toronto Telegram! ANSWERS According to the figures o? 1916 the population of Alberta was as compared with the figures of 063 taken in 1911.

"Tho present scheme." .It says "IS detrimental to the freedom of the press, degrading to Canadian hood, disruptive of natural Imperial relations."
