In fuel, a solution IB tho luBl thing thy Borden government wants to reach. Too many oC thqir cold Htorage friends uro on the wrdiiK side of the question. The high cost, of living IB at least years old, although It has be- come much more acute within the last two ye lira, The government of Sir Wilfrid Laurler, it 'will be remem- bered, went out of office in Sentcm- bnr, 1911, trying to do something; that would stem the Increased prices. Un- fortunately for the Canadian consum- ers, the1 pork packers, the cold storage operators and the food usurers of one kind or another rallied around the old old flag defeat- ed the- benevolent intentions of the Liberal party. Since then there hag been abHolutely nothing to keep the high cost of living in order. The fore- staller has had his own greedy way. The Bordon government has not even attempted to make him be good. Of course the government has been investigating. Investigating is one of the beat and most frequent things It does. But It never is in a great hurry about these investigations. Let It bo thorough. Slow and sure like the tor- better stillllKc the snail, or better than that, like tlie glacier that moves perhaps a foot a year. And then after all the facts have been dug up and put back again, if they are too bad or shifted Into the report, if they are only halt good why miry the report for another two years and let it go at that. This is what the government did with the High Cost of Living Report compiled by Mr, Coates ot' the Labor Bureau. It took two years to get it together and another year for the book to reacli the binding stage. A wonderful mass of statistics it was, but the conclusions were vague- The government did not want any morals pointed. It rather leaned .o the theory that it was the cost of high living that Croihors Mr. Hogwa and Mr. IJbherly, none of whom is person- ally Intoreuted in the subject.

Men are going to the front and making groat sacrifices, even to their lives. Mothers are giving up their sons and oers are gvng was being reported on. Being issued j wiyes their husbands. They are mak- under Tory auspices the report of Ing sacrifices the rest or' us know course said nothing about the effect Jiittie of. Those who remain must on the high cost of living of a forty per cent, tariff, with an anti-British preference to aggravate the difficulty. How could the report say anything about it? To do so would have been to blaspheme the fundamental doctrines of the Borden government. No matter how high the cost of living goes, you can always depend on it that the tariff will be higher, so long as the Borden government ia in power. There's no telling where it will be by the end of this year. In two years it has shot up fifteen per cent. By the law of aver- ages we ought to have by the end of forty-seven per cent, tariff and then some. Giving the tariff--an- other squeeze Is safer than taking it out of the shell profiteers; The people are used to experience has taught them to grin and bear it. But the shell they know how to kick. Yes, next to milking the tariff, in- vestigating the high cost of living ia the best thing the Borden government does. It Is willing to keep on Investi- gating to the end of the chapter. It hopes to be investigating when it goes out of office. The main-thing, is that its friends shall have plenty of to make money at-the public expense. Consequently the Bordea government could, die investigating. It. probably will, it certainly couldn't survivo an attempt to act on what it finds out. The few friends it has left belong to the privileged classes who make the cost of living what it is and they cer- tainly wouldn't stand for any spaama of conscience on the part of a govern- ment that owes its existence to them. In fact the Borden government has to be very careful to keep these power- ful but peevish persons quiet. One of them was planted in the very midst o' the Economic Commission so as head off any mischief in that direc- tion. This of the eighty-six appointed by the Borden been running for over a year but it hasn't reported yet. It may be doubted whether it ever will report.

Tho fellow at home must give of tho prosperity resulting from the war in order to do even a share of his bit. j The speaker believed also that the[ Patriotic Fund provided good means for the new settler to realize the op-' port unit? which is his In this new land. They are realizing it, too, and are subscribing nobly. "There concluded the speaker, "some men who are shirking the fund just as there. .-others who are shirking their duty: to enlist. There are men of great wealth, men in this city, who have made their "money in free Canada, who refuse to give of their means to provide for the depend- ents of the fighting men at the front. There should be some way of black- listing such men. They should be de- prived of their citizenship, far they are shirking their duty as citizens. They ought to be made'- to realize that duty." The speaker closed by paying a glowing tribute to President Tweedie. who has been indefatigable in his work for the fuiiu. His sacrifice has been great, but the "work he has ac- complished is highly gratifying. Mr. Tweedie Mr. Tweedie congratulated Leth- bridge and tlie officers of the fund, here for their splendid work in the1 past. Since the war opened Leth- bridge has raised J4S.OOO for the fund, establishing a standard of sacrifice for other towns and cities in tbe province. Mr. Tweedie then briefly reviewed the objects of the ftmd, making it clear that the test of payment to depend- the the cuts in every case Is need of money to live decently, while bread-winner is fighting his country's battles. He told of the exceptions and showed the great need 'of conserving the fund where possible so that all who really need it may be provided for.
