A PARTY OF FALSE PROPHETS It has seemed hard for the Conser- vative party of late years tu form auy correct conception of the value of the country in which they live >and which they wish to rule. Ii was not many years ago ihat Sir Whitney characterized New Ontario as noth- ing but "a land of Christmas trees and It is ixow the turn of the leaders of the federal Con servaiive party to betray, their lack of faith. They criticize the govern- ment for building the eastern sec- tion of the Grand Trunk Pacific where they have because it will ne- ver be productive, "a land of moun- tains, morasses, and swamps, unfit for cultivation and incapable of main taining a population." This is their descrpiption of the country in north- eastern Ontario, northwestern Quebec, northern New Brunswick, and south- eastern Quebec. j But what are the facts? It is tru that a large proportion of the tern tory traversed is not as productiv as the prairies but it is far from th truth to repeat the statements of th Opposition. Sir Wilfrid Laurier in his reply to Hon. George E. Foster gave some interesting information Ugioug fervor increased by having" to crane their uccks above or below around these enormous haU to IM the preacher or singer. Apply the same remedy to one nuisance that is applied to others. that had been gathered by surveyors about this country. The country on either side of the interprovincial boun dary, an area of square miles is described as containing two and a half million acres of good farming land and the rest can be easily drain- ed. It is well watered .and has fairlj good timber. Sixty per cent, of the land in the next section west is de- scribed, as arable land. Of square miles in the next section, the engineer reports that "there is an immense tract equal to any agricul- tural land in Canada, "being a suc- cession of long ridges, interspersed with swamps which can be easily drained. The country is well watered and has an-abundance of water pow- er. Sis thousand miles of can be considered as arable land. The next section contains half a mel- lion acres of good arable land and nearly as much medium land while the balance is good pasture land, well timbered and watered. The remain- ing two sections hkve acres of good land respec- tively. This.totals up to very nearly ten million acres of good arable land in the clay belt of Ontario alone Moreover, the statement, says that the surveys have not been carried to the limits or the tributary territory ei- ther to the north or to the south, A similar record could be. given of the area traversed in the northwest- ern part of Quebec. Of New Bruns- wick the reports say, "Generally the soil is- fairly good and the country well adapted for agriculture." There is good land in the greater part of country; The timber is heavy while seventy miles of the road is through a well-settled and productive country. These facts were available and pro- bably known by the Opposition, yet they persisted in libelling their own country to further their senseless ob- struction of the building of the Grand Trunk Pacific. The opening up and LEGAL FINANCING Aid. Bowman is right. The money voted for a specific purpose Si be kept for that purpose and not used for any other. He is not right mere- ly because the law says so, although that is the determining factor in de- ciding right from wrong with many people. But he is right because it would not be a good thing to do oth- erwise even though the law allowed it. While in the present case there might be no harm come from it, there are possibilities -that if the pre- cedent established were followed dif- ficulties and disasters' might easily For instance, an extravagant council not wishing to assume the re- sponsibility -for immediate increased taxation might have bylaws passed authorizing for a certain specific pur- pose a sum of money far in excess of the requirements and use the differ- j ence for current expenditure, thus I mortgaging the future for mere liv- ng expenses. Or again, a bylaw may >e passed authorizing the issue of [ebeatures for a sum of money. The iebentures are sold and the money used for current expenses. The spe- ific work is to be undertaken but financial stringency occurs and the jank refuses an ovedraft. Where vould the council be then? Another contingency is that oi a ylaw being passed for the issuing of ebentures to pay for a certain work, 'he Council takes the money and pends it on capital account on inoth- r work before asking the permission of the people. After the money is spent, the bylaw is submitted and de- feated. Where would the money come, from to pay for the first work?

Everywhere preachers are urging the ladies to deny themselves the plea- sure of being fashionable for the sake of the religious welfare of the balance of their cpngregations. Men claim that the hat nuisance is a worse form of selfishness than smoking of which f many women complain. All women do not wear these millinery outrages, iisiithsr do all men smoke. Custom and in many places Jaw, have de- creed that smokers should be kept in places by themselves as per regula- tions on train and street cars. It seems as though some similar regu- lations should be made to apply to the other case. Why should not these women who persist in wearing such headgear be required to ait by them- selves in one part of the or concert auditorium Then those who want to study 'the millinery creations will -t.hfp to" dc ao while those who want: to sec the speaker or singer will nave a chance, to know how the others leel who are sitting behind their flower aud poul- try exhibitions.
