Mope tlipy slny away from Lethbrldge until our streets arc cleaned up a little anyway. Liberal Policy Clear LIBUKALISM is not discouraged. It is full'Of faith iii Its policy of wider a. good deal than the markets the Borden gov- ernment has secured in the West In-, dieg and is, attempting to secure in the Antipodes. Sir Wilfrid Laurier's declaration that the Liberal part3- stili stood for reciprocity is not surprising, but it ivil! talk that this great Is- sue is dead. It will never die as long as Western Canada raises more grain than the home market and Great Brit- ain can consume. The United States market is the natural and by far the best outlet for pur products-, and we must get that nmrket. The people of Western Canada want that market aiid will stand by the party that is to only does the west want larger markets, but the east wants'them too. They were driven away from the trade pact last fall by tbe bugaboos raised by the Big Interests. They are coming to their senses rapidly and are beginning to realize that Eastern Canada's industrial prosperity recent years was due more to de- elopnient and settlement of AVestern Canada than to protection. The west wants larger markets and it also wants and must have a.lower tariff. We do not want to wreck Can- adian industries but we are opposed; to a tariff that enables many indus- tries to bleed the people of Canada. The Liberal party must fight, in vic- tory or defeat; for the interests of the common people. All it should offer the manufacturers is fair treatment- ami not an iota more. They are given more than fair treatment ar-a practically given a monopoly. To rond the Tory press oiie would conclude all illegal votes were cast by Liberals. The .Mayratli cases show othenvJse. Qur Tory friends had be ter cease flaunting their political vi tues. Ur. Blow has brought tho Calgar University into politics aiKl the mil versity must be prepared to'reap tb- results. Malcolm Mackenzie's atti tude on this .matter was right, H was not partisan. He simp held that one degree conferring iniversity in Alberta was sufficient. eiiow- that ho Is u. farmer timo.

Evidently there Is-a distinction without a difference, but It'requires a political magnifying glass to see it. nen is a man .married? That seems to be .the all-absorbing topic of conversation down Quebec way. Out west the poor unfortunate bach- elors consider themselves so lucky to get a chance to join the benedict arra> hat they never stop to ask1 any such "ootish questions. Examinations ALTHOUGH'ALL NATURE in spires at this time of year, a sense of tranciuility. and passive enjoyment at her wonderful rehabili aient, as well as an abiding feeling o joy at being alive, when other crea tures go revel in their various spheres to some this season is the herald o dread and tions are drawing near." Tbe unwel- come thought assiduously re strained in the background; of sub- consciousness since September last, but the advent of the twenty-fourth ol May proclaimed unequivocally the fact that t.only one month, intervenes be- tween the present and the unknown terrors of.-the {mediate From a pedagogical standpoint, ex- aminations -frequently fail in their mission. The supposed test oi ability and erudition is frequently a test of ready wits, which when liberally, com- pounded with good luck 'accomplish ihe desideratum. Or iu many cases, it is not a matter of knowledge and Ignorance, but rather of physical ability or disability to withstand the nervous strain occasioned by. the pros- pect of a crisis Jn the student's life. The teacher too has learned to view liie examination test with no incon- disquiet. The truism, "Re- sults is universally'-accepted, yet. it cannot be gainsaid that in few professions, if any, are results less definite and certain than in the teach- ers' profession. Possibly from no fault whatever on teacher's part, or even on the pupil's part, the pupil fails "to obtain examination require- ments. The -inference' too often de- duced is that the teacher was imW- Jferent or that the. pupil lacks the re- QUlslte education, one or both of these It may be, and frequently is, a-fact that nothing could be farther from the tniln. Destructivo criticism ,is 'productive of little benefit however. What rem- edy or remedies can be suggested? First, let the abuses of the system be made clear. Examinations are not an Accurate test of the pupil's knowledge1 and ability. Frequently pupils of un- disputed'merit fail on examinations, while, others whose standing is act- ually below par may be successful, This is due to the fact that a pupil's acquaintance with a subject is not necessarily equivalent: to his ready ability to answer any eight or ten questions which might be asked con- cerning that subject. Examination papers should he so framed us to al- low, a certain ft range ot selection among -the.'questions, which should cover the subject with reasonable test would then be" with greater fEiirness to the candidate and would lose none of its effective- ness. A fortunate coincidence has often placed an examination paper entirely within the range of one 'pupil's knowledge, whilst .almost trrely excluding--It t from apothe whose graa'p of -the1-subject was s perlor to 'that -of 'the former. other factor which often intc feres to rob an industrious pupil c is, as has alread beeiij inentiened> the matter of ph; sical exhaustion conseciuc-nt upo mental strain. of this menta strain 'might, be avoided If a certn percentage of each subject's mark we're -allotted rfor term Th would .as it were, a diversion or in other words, a division or dis ir'tbiitipn-. of., .responsibility, and th idea become less prevalen hat the'examination stands 'for-''Hi be. aH. the'end Injustice, too. is often wrought til on" tire''teacher' by this means. I are encouraged to pros- itute their principles to gain a favor able reputation by ensuring a larg" iroportibu of successful candidates a examination. All prominent educa tlonalfsts', and all conscientious teach ers arc unanimous in decrying tin suggestion of teaching for examina Yet with Jthe present system, I is impossible to .'avoid and inexpedleni to neglect the fact that the result 01 the examination spells success or fail tire, both to.teacher and student. The Deduction is obvious "cram for exam.' Lethbridge district will be getting, so much rain that people .will be be- ginning to think dry farming is a misnomer this year. But never mind, the farmer who knows how to dry farm can farm, all the better with Plenty of rain, and his .methods, will i On the entertainment accorded the housauds of visitors to the Dry Fa rui- ng Congress will depend whether It s a knock or a boost. That-was-shown u no uncertain way nt the dinner on Wednesday evening. Nothing, there- ore, remains for the of ridge but to work from this time forward to make it a boost, ami the biggest boost in the history of the Dominion. Sir Wilfrid T.aurier's while plume stands out more signally than ever. Never the white feather of defeat, it is now the emblem of victory even in defeat. His arraignment of the petty platitudes which were advanced by the Conservatives >to defeat the real reciprocity issue was masterly in every detail, and bis every statement was backed up 'by reference to the policy of the present governnient since Sept.
