Mr. Hoadley. is old Fashioned THE eloquence of George Hoadle) of Okotolcs ou the question o demonstration farms is not re- sounding at Ciaresholm In the bye el-action pending. Mr. Hoadley dumb on the subject of demonstration farms when he is within hailing dis tance of one of them, but when al u distance he becomes rbrove ami de- nounces the farms us far ,above what any ''farmer should, expect.. Indeed, the idea of erecting a nice looking 'house oh a farm is altogether out of range, Jir. Hoadley's vision.of.what -fsmiET- BflQulu -It jii, tcrous fora farmer, in Mr..; Hoadley's .'opinion, to look for. anything but a piano box shack, for. a residence, a which the cows could eat their way for shelter, and p-roh- front yard for ornament. Taking Mr. j s public -utterances in con- stituencies where there are no farms, as tlie criterion, there is iio.: reason supposing that his ideal for a far- mer's requirements soars any higher. Despite Mr. Hoadley's how the government inteuds spend- ing more money and have in view .the rapid development of the farms so as to, make them of Immediate value to the farmers. The scheme for the erection of agricultural high schools, where the young men of the farms can receive an education, along the more, technical side of their life's work, should receive the strongest support of the farmers of this Pro- vince, It will take a year or per- haps two to, get the scheme working as it is no doubt .My .18, J912.

Oh you Quebec! .Can it be that that old pendulum has really started back the other way? There's a per- tinent saying about, every little move- ment. Wouldn't wonder if Quebec had it. Works are stronger than faith, but the Lethbridge people are going to show their faith this year by their works.

The Government Quashes a Decision by ,Judge Mabee (Winnipeg Free Press) Close upon the heels of the tributes from all '.over the Dominion to the liigh integrity and clear-beaded ability of the late Judge Mabee comes the in noun cement from Ottawa- that the Dominion government, at a sitting of lie cabinet council last Friday, IIP reversed the judgment, of the Ra vay Commission pronounced by Judfe, Jabee on December 19, last, In regar o the location of the G.

The idea ahould.be ser- iously taken up. The Telephone Expenditure i HE CHARGE that the telephone X construction announced for Sou them Alberta, particularly in and desigh- to inlluencc the bjeelections, has foundation in fact. Every OUR con- with the constitution 'method of popular Government in i Canada knows that every public work :lms to be provided for in the esti- and the sanction of the elected given before the monev can -be expended for the purpose. Any one who followed the tlelihera- :tions of the Legislature must know the premier In his speech as pro- vincial treasurer outlined the -diturc on telephones for the year and Announced the intention to borrow a sum for the purpose of making extensions to the system. the estimates of the telephone department were submitted itp the house they were discussed in and; It's a poor picture to of Mr. 'AHclienor, Dr. ;4intl other members of the opposition :to slate that they let this largo sum through without knowing what it iwas to be spent for. Any boy in the advanced classes knows enough of parliamentary procedure to know that such a thing is almost Im- possible A got eminent must give details in connection with a acquest appropriations for public works, and to state that the opposition let the telephone estimates through In a bulk sum -is tantamount to announc- ing are Incompetent. What an .easy crowd they would he if in power But all this cry about mflii encing the bye-elections is so much campaign buncombe Early in tlva year the telephone department drew up Its programme of work for J912 and decided on its estimates. The large amount of line to be construct ed, in Ciaresholm- and Cnrdston was decided early' In January and If the announcement is emphasized, now It is due altogether tn -th0 unfair tac- tics oi.lhe Conservative campaigners who are raising sectional cries and trying to create a spirit of hostility In one part of; the country against another Its usually (he% stock In trade of a pirty without a definite policy to'prcsent and the bye-elections In r-Togrcss -furnish no exception to Hie rule.

Seven Is a luckx number Well, be perfectly Milling lo latter location'; widely throughout the Dominion and outside the Dominion, The matter wan" brought before the .Railway, Commission, by Mr and bis associates, establiah- a townsite on the understanding that station was to be on lot S82 The> went before the Railway Com mission, asking that the G T P be compelled to fulfil Its contract They were supported by .practically' the whole mercantile community of the old town'Of'Hazelton; the case. Judge lUa- bee, in pronouncing the Commission's Judgment, as Chief Comriiissioner, said: "If any private individual had done' what the Grand Trunk Pacific ha; attempted to do In this'case, he would have been in penitentiary, and rightly so. T have known of a more deliberate attempt to .deprive an in- dividual of bis rights, and I-want to say so most emphatically. An order will be issued compelling the Grand Trunk Pacific to locate its station at the point at which it agreed, and an injunction wiil: be issued against it carrying; out its own Which, it must be admitted, rect, forcible, emphatic language; leav ing no possible doubt or uncertainty as to the meaning oT the-Coinmiasion's decision, ft is difficult, indeed, to see how a decision could be framed in language (hat would'be-more unmis- takably more.emphatically to the point. If you wiirglance over it there was ii violation agreement." Noting once more tbe clear-cut de- cisiveness of the language used by I Judge .Mabee in pronouncing that Judgment, let us recall the tributes which since Judge. Mabee's death, nine days ago, have been paid to his extraordinary; .power o-I going to the heart of every, matter brought before the Railway Commission, of seeing the essentials, and of setting forth the plain justice of tbe matter. Iii a decision in which he used language so emphatic as has just been quoted, is it not a fair presumption that the decision of the-Commission one. which gave. the.parties concerned a square deal? And who are; the The G. T. P. we all know.
