I S the "Bull Moose" drama now being enacted at Ottawa with R. B. Bennett and W. F. Nick- Is in the leading roles, a portent of .less slavish- ness to party, and greater independence" iii Can- adian politics, or is it but a flash in the pan? Will it start a new movement for better government in Canada, or will the people, after the novelty has worn off; lapse into the same old rut of party before all? It is interesting to read what papers have to say about the Bennett-Nickle episode, as show- ing what may be expected. The Winnipeg Tri- bune, being of an independent disposition, is es- pecially interesting in this respect Here is what it says: The ringing ueeiar-alion -of political independ- ence delivered in the Ottawa House of Commons yesterday by Mr. W. F< 'Nickle, the able young member for Kingston, marks an epoch in the political history of Canada. Hitherto it has been more than a member's political life was worth to exhibit the slightest independence or to speak or vote at variance with Ms party. It has generally been regarded as the unpardonable political of- fence, and in the past has been visited usually political extinction. Let us trust that a bet- ter day has dawned and that such independence as was exhibited by Mr. Nickle in his speech yes- terday on the Canadian Northern deal will go ringing round the Dominion, and will meet with such cordial support and endorsement in the minds of patriotic Canadians and in the columns of fair-minded journals, as will bring some re- ward to the brilliant young member, and assure the ushering in of a belter day in the political history of the Dominion. It has been known for some time that Mr. Nickle of Kingston and Mr. Bennett of Calgary .were unalterably opposed to the Canadian Nor- thern deal, being resolved that the only solution of the problem in the interests of the Canadian people was the nationalization of the system in accord with the principles of the Conservative party, as laid down by its leader, Mr. Borden, a very few years ago. It was a fine touch to see Mr. Nickle rise in parliament, remind his leader, Mr. Borden, of the public ownership plank in the parly's platform, accuse him of departing there- from in dealing with the Canadian Northern, and announce that, so far as he himself was concern- ed, he proposed lo stand loyally by the great principle of public ownership and the principles upon which he .-was elected, rather than follow his leader or his parly in a course which the leaders had denounced when in opposition. The Canadian people are to be congratulated upon such evidences of independence, and it will stand them: in good .stead if they; recognize Mr. Nickle's stand, rise up in praise of the same, and so serve notice upon party leaders and-parlisans generally that the man who'eschews partisanship and stands for principle in the interests of. the public at large, is the type of man entitled to such support. It will be a bad day for the Canadian people if they fail to recognize such independence as Mr. Nickle lias exhibited. We take it for granted that Mr. Bennett, who is understood lo speak today, take the same 'line. If he does, the Canadian people will at least have two bril- Jiant public men whom they can look to in the future for inspiration, guidance and patriolic leadership. Nothing thai we can think of will so redound to the general interest of the people of Canada at such independence as was displayed in parliament, yesterday, and as we trusl will be repealed today by'lhe able member for Calgary. "SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK." ,OWN in Toronto the Good the Ward IV. Con- servativo Association is having the time of tts llfo D cd in the calling oft of R. B. Bennett s address to the electors of the ward. It appears from recent explanations that Mr. Bennett himself cancelled Hie engagement. However, that is neither here nor there. What we wish to call attention to is a paragraph from a letter in tile Toronto Telegram, written by the secretary of the association. After disclaiming that the executive of the association cancelled Mr. Bennett's engagement, the secretary goes on to affirm the loyalty of Ward IV. Conservatives by telling of their magnificent organization. Here's what he says: Let me tell you in conclusion that Ward IV. Liberal-Conservative association elect their candidates not only for the Fed- eral and Provincial House, but also at the last municipal election. We have today twenty-five hundred members on our list and an attendance of ninety per cent, at all of our executive meetings. In the fu- ture try to be accurate and also endeavor to be more fair. Yours truly. RUSSELL NESBITT, Secretary of Ward IV. This from Torpnlo the Good, Canada's most progressive city. Surely this is an admission to be proud of. It is a bright example for Canada's youth. It is a beacon light in the realm of muni- cipal politics in this young nation. Talk of rot- tenness in Chicago ward has no lessons to learn. They have graduated in the capital city of Ontario. The Herald does not mean to insinuate that the Ward IV. Conservatives are the only guilty ones in this rotten mixing of party politics in municipal affairs. Likely Ward IV. Liberals are as bad. We hope not, but the confession of the frank Russell Nesbiti would lead one lo believe that they are all cast from the same mould. The reason the Liberals of Toronto are not in the limelight with a similar confession is probably that, not having had so much success as their Conservative friends, they have nolliing to brag about. The letter s'erves to show the rotten founda- tion on which Toronto's municipal structure is built. Hereafter we will wonder no more when we hear tales of corruption in Toronto's muni- cipal affairs. We will only know that the ex- pected has happened. OTJK POINT OF VIEW The latest rumor is that the Federals arc about to tie the can on Huerta. Tis said he mixes lob many drinks after the game, We note with pleasure that the Lundhreck iield is to be prospected for oil. if found, the Crow's Nest branch of the C; P. R. ought to Jje able to keep the world warm for a while, what with its coal and gas and oil. One editor says if Mackenzie and Mann suc- ceed in taking Canada into partnership in the C. N. R. the new firm should be known as Macken- zie, Mann and Can. In the meantime its .a case of Can Mackenzie and Mann? Lloyd's Weekly has just finished taking a straw vott on the greatestliving'man, and Lloyd George leads by 100 points. Lethbridge's finan- cial pilot isn't mentioned. But then Lloyd George never had the financial worries of our mayor. A prominent Ottawa man admitted to the court the oilier day that the reason he hadn't paid his ex-wife the a week alimony prescribed was because he was ''properly poor."
