Like other strong men, Goldwin Smith has frequently stood terest aroused by others such as the out strong against the popular setoti- naval question.

Such'a suggestion will meet with in- dignant protest from all humanity, and. the mayor of Plymouth m'ay yet sxplpiia that this calmly delivered letter read at a, public meeting was .only a joke like Dr. William Osier's idea, of chloroforming men. over sixty.

RQBLIN, A POOR CRUTCH Premier McBride thought he scored ;i. point when n telegram from Pre- mier Roblin announced that the prov- ince of Manitoba has received a great benefit from the building of the C. N. R. under government guarantee a-nd that freight rates had been re- duced by twenty-fivi' per cent, there- by. The former, part of the message work-id to Mr. McBride's discomfiture when it showed that Manitoba had got 1200 miles of C. R. lines built all in new territory for a guarantee of while he was proposing to guarantee for 600 miles, only 200 of which would prob- ably be in territory and unpar- alleled by other lines. His bargain He has done much ior Canadian journalism in'raising and upholding the higher ideals of the newspaper- men. His discussions of public ques- tions have alweys oeen on a high plane. From a literary standpoint his stvle was of the his perfect use common cause in the question. On j of words, strong but graceful senten- the government side there have .bees ees and well balanced articles being who have shown any in- a model for the journalist everywhere, d iuation to take'a position in oppo- sition to Sir Wilfrid on the question. All is not -.so peaceful -on the other an honored member. At the age. of eighty-five, Goldwin Smith retires as a journalist knowing he has accomplished much ior side. The Conservative leader seems the "people for whom he -wrote and for to be difficult position, die profession of which he has been The best men of his party are with him in, his endeavor toJceep .the ques- tion free. from partisanship, but the j noisy element is against him. Worse than that it looks very much as if the undesirable element of the party headed by Roblin and Rogers of Man- itoba were taking advantage of the "to create a revolt against their leader and depose him. If the majority of Borden's supposed fol- lowers join in the' revolt he will either have to abandon his position question or his position in the party. If he does the former he will have to do the latter anyway. It looks as if Mr. Borden was at the testing time of his TURNED DOWN "CY" Lothbridge Board of Trade is not the only one that turned down Col.

Some east- ern journalists and newspapermen have, got the idea that the west is publicity crazy and all they have to do is trump up some scheme a publicity flag on it to get tie cities to eagerly watch for their coming."

The change of his headquarters from Round St. so Acadia Block, Redpath St., is all to the good. In the- looked a poor affair compared j with'that. Mr. Roblin being a staunch Conser- vative, naturally wished to help him out all he could in this campaign. Of his claim of a twenty-five por cent. reduction in freight rates, the Mani- toba Froe Press says: Advices from British Columbia re- port Mr, McBride as making use of telegram from !Mr. Roblin in which the claim is made that, as the result bringing in the Canadian Northern Railway, freight rates have been re- duced 25 per cent. is not Mr. Roblin's greatest achievement in exaggeration; but it -approaches his ablest efforts" in this riine. George H. Shaw, traffic man- of the C. N. R. in a letter Mr. Roblin bearing date of September 14, 4909, declared that the rates printed j in tariff 56, now in force under the Northern "show a rcduo tion. of 15 per cent." from the rates in force in this province on Febru- -Ary U, 1901.
