It is an "uttempt to remove the cause and so, nec'assariiy, the etfect. The citadels of immorality are to be razed to the ground because there is no further need fc-r them. And this is to come aboufby going fb the root of things, �by iTifluenclng men to u right appre-fiatipn of tlie ideals of manhood. It is not a spirit ot-otilclous interference which brings the mission to Canddai But a sense of devotedness to a natlqp" On whom tl�e future of empire greatly rests. It is to preserw our national characteristics, born of .haxdabip?, from degenerating, and so giving ^placo to those" weaicer phases "Which wealth and luxury bring to a nation. The voint of view In which social evifs are- regarded goes a long way. Once.get the young to regard these as they ought to regard them, and the first victory against vice is gained. . The. spirit of the present mission will be welcomed .by all men interested In the future of tho nation. It is carried on on the right lines, and plidiiTd Tie'fnado continuous and not spasmodic.' The Action of Mr, GrotHers As A REASON for refusing the request for the appoiutmeni: of a conciliation board, made by the Canadian 'Brotherhood of Railroad Empioyees, for settling the present dispute with the C. P. R., the Hon. T. W''. Crotliers e.vprcssea his cpiniou that the Lemieux Act dogs not apply to the peculiar conditions attached to the claims Involved in tho disagreement. This looks UUe a subterfuge in which mere phraseology Is: made to override eiiulty. ; In a circular despatched to tie Boards of Trade In Canada, the President and Deputy President set forth that the Camvdian Brotherhood of Hal Iroad Employees Is a! purely Can-adiaia organization, and the only mil-road organization in Canada incorporated under the Dominion statutes, �nd controlled solely by Canadians, having been lu existence aluce 1908 and Incorporated In 1909, The clrc)i-lar further proceeds to state that negotiations with tbe authorities of tho C. P, R. for .an opportunity of obtaining a hearing wei'o 'riot 'success avoid tlie a .strike un- the f ul, -and in order to desirable feature of union applied for the only means at its disposal to obtain justice. The refusal of the Minister of Labor'to grant the organization its request Is all against the spirit of the Lomieui Act. Taken with the fact that the. employees have expressed their ''wiUiilgness to abide by the declsibri' of "a conciliation boaTd. the nctloa of Mr. Crothers needs a better explanation" than tho one already � glv'*n.'' \\''lth tho willingness of the men to'�acquiesce in the llndi-ags of the "board", 'the course taken by the WIriliter of Labor is nothing less tKau arrogant and autocratic.

S. constUuticn Is not a iior^ feet atfalr. . Tho coiistllution provides that each slate shall'"appoint" In such manner as its legislature may direct, a number of electors equal to the whole number of senators and representatives the state is entitled to send to Congress. Those electors are required to meet on the second Monday of January in their respective states and vote by -bnilot for president and vice-president. On the second Wednesday of February Congress is convened to count th�se ballots. If any of the candidates- receives a clear majority of ,the votes cast by the electors he Is deplarecl elected. It no candidate receives a majority the House of Representatives make a choice. In that event the roll-call Is by states, and each state has one vole only. Thiis If the election of pi-esldenl were to become a matter for'Congress, Nevada with 81,875 population, Wyoming with 145,-065 and Arizona with 20.1,354 would have three votes for 431,494 people; while New York with over nine million population , would have only one. Npwhere els^nja the world is there an electoral system so archaic. THE COMPANY Real Estate andbvestments OWNERS OF MORNING SIDE Suite 111 to 115 Sherlock Building P.O.

(Hamilton-Fife in Outlook) Let US see what is in Bonnr Law's record and character to support the hope that he nmybe the man to reestablish Conrf^rvatisra in ' popular favor. First wc-will hear him speak in the House of Commons. He has been sitting, nvhije others � addressed tho House, perfectly quiet, to all appearance little interested. Unless you had been told'who he was, you would scarcely have noticed this sparse figure with tho pensive, wide-open, melancholy eyes. His brown hair, getting a little thin, is brushej] in an orderly, ordinary way. His lean features aro shaven' save for a small mustache. He wears a decent black coat. Ho looks just o, decent, ordinary -man. , That Is, In fact, exactly what he would be but tor his one passion, his characteristicaily Scottish .passion- the passion 'tor argument. Now he rises. A light burns in, those eyes, no longer'pensive or melancholy. He begins to speak, rapidly Vet distinctly, with an excellent voloo ot words. He has seized upon points made by earr Her speakers, and he is arguing them with rosolulQ conviction  as- well as dialectical skill. He has made no notes: He carries all his mnterisMn ills head. They say tliat sinc3 Lord Brougham died no ono has ever been able to handle a complex "argument so clearly and easily as Bpiwr Law. Tho pleasant voice, agreeabjly tiavoredt by a slight Scotch aecent, Hows on without any of those painful pauses, those "er, or, er's" which-usually punctuate an Englishman's speech. Onco ho does pause. He is Hinging arithmetic at his opponents, a ceaseles Maxim gun discharge of .statistics. Of some, important figures he is not quite sure, He takes from his trousers pocket a llttto notebook (just a little three-cent notebook it looks like.) He turns at once to tho right page and reads out, in a tone quivering w'ith triumph, tho figures which' ho declares' "desti-oy the entlrre Frree Trrado case;" Although he uses notes so seldom, he always seems to have concealed somewhere ahput him just tile note he wants. His clothes must surely be made with an'extra allowance'of pockets, and every pocket holds emergency ammunition. Listen! Some statement of his Is questioned. There aro shofits of derision from the Liberal benches: "Ho neS-er said it.' "Query," "Qiipto." Bonar Law looks at tho Liberal benches with a.-grim I smile. Then he plunges Into a poc-' kot-always tlie right 'one.- At sight Republic Six-Cylinder 1913 MODEL Electric teU-cranking, ElecUic lighting, tyatem, Six-cylinder T-head motor.

They know what is coming. "Speaking at Birmingham on Sept. 10, 1905 . . ." - Another point scored by Bonar Law. His points are always argumentative, never rhetorical, He appeals to reason, to facts; not to emotion or imagination. He can be bitter in Irony. He now and then turns a great phrase of humor; but he never litis a debate above the level of logic. He never makes anybody want to cheer. A queer, dry figure, this Scotsman with the one passion-tho paisslon for proving some ono else to be wrong. '^fust ppr a joke Courting In Chapel The Rev. F. B. Meyer has been declaring at Leeds that ho does not seriously object to a "little courting" in chapel. One recalls an Incident in a Midland chapel some .years ago. 'fho preacher was awioyed by tho sound ot whispering coming from the semt-darkness under one of the galleries. At last he paus�d in bis sermon and declai-?d: "if the young people making love under the gallery do not come to me in the vestry before service next Sunday morning, 1 will name them to tho church." it was a chance, shot, but 'iiext' Sunday found 20 couples awaiting him In the vestry,-^London Chronicle.
