THE WEEKLY HERALD fuV'lthed every Wednusdiy la'eijrM pates, i summary of the of the wtek, lacal and dUtrlci 1 yew IK j monthi la _i tcccthj la idvanca'........lit AN EMPTY MEASURE THE SPEECH'delivered by Sir-George Ross in the Senate ought to remove any disposition on Hit purl of the public to believe in'that assembly, opposed to the Navy Bill, are nctiiated by purely partisan motives.. There is'much in wlmt'he-said.'th'at hasn'ls appeal lake a pride in Canadian nationhood. The matter of fur- nishing money for :lhe supply of .three liappily cprpiiared to the supply of uniforms without the men to wear ,them, and there is much in the comparison. Supporters of the present Navy Bill speak proudly of. Canada 'fulfilling its duty to the Motherland by being' in the firing line.' But how cairsuch a" tiling be possible the ships are not by Canadian men? To quote the eloquent words of Sir George, the bill "appeals to no man's flesh and blood; it offers no Victoria Crosses for lives risked OIL the battlefield.. Empty as iin.exploded cartridge, and soulless as its plated sides, it arouses .rip. sentiment, no emotion of joy or glory." ;v AS YOU GO SYSTEM CALGARY there has been newly "organized a Consumers' i League. Ils members, as the name implies, intend id wdrk ;6iit and means for solving Hie great domestic question of (jay, namely, how id reduce the high cost of living.' A point of interest is the proposition submitted lo Hie league ,My a large grocery firm. It offered an 'eight per cent, discount on 'cash sales to its members. It'wos'argued that this reduction .r'puld be well made, in that it would save the cost of booking the hire of a bookkeeper. Eight per cent., when deducted ''from the mohmly! grocery bills, would fairly respectable sum. !f.th6 firrii ha (1 carefully worked 'the matter' out'aiid jjeiievcs' that it can' still .iriake a profit liy the necessary reduction tor cnsh it shows that ,willi a credit system we ure simply mulcting oursehes to the 'lu'ne of eight per cent, on the outlays we make. This is some- thing for the housekeeper lo consider.." 'The cash system, 'if it means'a saving of eight per ceni., -.xvpiild no douht be a highly profitable one to hoth parties to a bargain. To put il into general practice appears dillicult, other- Vvise the plan in its appeal lo economy, would by now have been inorc universally adopted and cotiiferinlq popular favor. Is it that the public needrmore'cnlighlihent in the matter, is it that buying on .credit has become mofe or less a with some people? THE ETHICS OF CO-OPERATION :O O-OPKRATION has come lo he a subject of live interest in V.lhese days-.- Treating of 'the matter' wilh regard lo fruit- growing, a pamphlet issued by the Federal Department of Agri- callure has much to say of ils general merits. It instances the development of thb movement in Canada by pointing oiit thai 'the Norllra-est Grain Growers' 'Associatiolrbids' fair to revolu- tionize the selling of wheat in thr. northwest. Dislrihutive co- operative stores are being established throughout the Dominion, andjso numerous have .they, become latelyMhaf it has Keen found .desirable and possible organize- a--Dominidn- Union' of. Co- 'operalive Associations that will exercise a great influence on the distributive side of the movement. To outline in more or less detail the principles .of cu-opcra- tion. the more desirable methods to adopt in putting these prin- ciples into practice, and the objects to be gained by their adop- is tin; (mrpuiiu of the bulletin. The ethical principles involved in co-operation are thus Bpoken of: Cq-bpcralion is founded upon natural confidence, loyalty lo principle and unselfishness in In an association the members must have confidence in their leaders and in their fel- low workers. Without this confidence no progress can be made; rib other virtues will compensate 'for its absence. Such confi- dence is not the blind faith that follows v.ithoul reason, nor yet .is it thb'coW nnd aurcntss that comes flow perfect knowledge. .The confidence which one has in leaders and bis fellow workers in this democratic age, does not dispense with ail Ihe. mechanism. 'of personal oversight nnd close audiiing. Bui it, does consist in unreservedly placing bur interests in the care of others who arc working with us nnd whom we have no reason fo suspect of fraudulent and selfish iiilcnt. The millennuim is not yet come, but il is snfc to say that ninc-lrnllis ttl Use suspicions of His average uie without good foitrida- TjTE LETUBRIDJG1B TD AILY HER ALI) tiou. The crinnuul code in en-lain oauulrivs is founded ujiuii the nrindulc tlmt an uvcusrd mail is guilty until he proves him- self umoi-eiil. Tlie Urilish courts of justice consid'-r u inim in- until he is proved guilly. Applying the principle to the working of co-opi-s-sUvc iisiocialions, we shoiilil consider out fellow members as worthy of our confidence until It-is proved otherwise, by unimpeachable evidence. II is essential that i-acli member of a co-operative associa- tion should in mind thai the success or failure of the organ-' U.'ttio'n depends upon the combined .effo.rls of ils members, iu gmnK every possible support to the movement. The ultimate success of co-nuerulion depends largely upon the cheerful optim- ism and-cnlhiisiastiivloyally of the'association numbers.' U is assumed that the" leaders of Ihe movement in any section are men of greater executive belter training than the average. Such men arc capable of doing'liuiny things'well.' Bui at the sunn- lime every member must have his mind permeated with the (houghl that unless he gives'levcry possible assfs'tance the of the leaders'krc necessarily limited. 'Selfishness is a primitive civilization. Enough re- mains however, to disturbing cleinenJ'iii-cverydSy life. One of the main charms of modern social life is'.niiselflshi the ordinary methods of .business lihve'jfip placc'for il. Co-operation, oh'the b.llief :luind, endeavors'to inatc selfishness and ils success uO'pJ.-uds'largely .upon thc'cxteut lo which this is accomplished. No'cbrojicrative association can possibly the members aie'determincd to' act up6ii-the ethics of ordinary business methods. If the few who have power in an association exercise that power-for-sclfish ends, then there con be no; and though rules and regulations' may be carefully drawn up lo offer no temptation lo the selfishly inclined, yet after all is said and done we must, in a Inrgc meas- ure rely upon the broad moral-education of Ihe members rnlher than upon direct and distinct prohihitioii. Have Trylnws 'and regulations by all means, mil it should be understood ambng the members thai iheic is a higher code of morality limn can pos-' sibly be embodied in these. II is for this reason that the co-operative methods limit the dividends that.may be paid lo capital aud exclude share votiiig.- In ordinary joinl slock companies, the intlucncc and power is proportional to the so that the rich become richer by appropriating the power of money, of the labpi-S'of others, the-unearned increment'of values created by society, and the natural resources that in jus- jlic'e should be, si HI red in due proportion i Co-opera- tion distributes wealth in proportion to the just earning of each worker, of unselfishly all natural resources. The sentiments expressed ought to be encouraging to all who have the co-operative movement at heart. If successfully curried "but it should prove, an'economic measure of great benefit lo the communilv. OUR POINT. OP.

The campaign of- the Tory .press in this province against the Sifton government for ;nol giving advertising lo papers politically opposed is quite on a par the majority'of the appeals made by the same press in Ihe recent eleclions. And it will have the same effect on Ihe people. .'..There is no finer mnn in public fife todny (ban Ho'n. G. R.
