In case you have not noticed it, wt1 might remark that Theodore House- veil is still allvo and kicking. The C.P.R. and Its Employees THE PRESENT STRIKE among the freight handlers of th Canadian Pacific Railway dis 1 closes some sordid facts. According io Mr. iMosher, president of the men's Union, the public are told that some the C. P. R. employees are working i -twelve hours a day tor SIO per month, Tvhile in one case a man was only getting sis per month. When it is remembered what the of the 0, P. R, is, if must ap- pear astounding, if not scandalous, tbat its employees in certain occupa- tions should be treated in this nig- gardly fashion. It may he argued that in free countries it need not be neces- sary for men to work on starvation pittances. But this View would be illogical. For were 'workers able in all cases to make their -choice there would be no such word as "sweating" in our vocabulary. Men are often the victims of cir- cumstances, aiid it is air against the verdict of fairplay that this should be made the opportunity of turning: them into serfs. For this is what thq proceeding actually amounts to. No wonder .that the Canadian Bro- therhood of Railroad .Employees are crying out for recognition. If the cases mentioned are a sample of grie vancesj -then no man can blame them Men may treat with contumely tin Socialist doctrine, but when worker: are kept -on such pitiful wages foi swelling the" bloated revenue of rich" corporation, ihere must come to mind that there is, at any rate, some excuse for the -propaganda. Submerg ed humanity needs consideration. 1 should be the law of our vauntec civilization.. receive n least a living wage. This is a prob em'which the authorities should im mediately give their 'attention to solv. ng. It is.th.8 only means of 'bringing about a contented people. The conditions under: which em- ployees in the C. P.1R.-, of the type mentioned, are employed demand i searching enquiry. If it can he prov ed that things arc not as they are so much the more for the credit of the company, and for the satisfaciiou of he public. THE PUBLIC have not long ago read the case of the Canadian bay who was expelled by the board of education at Cedar Grove, U. S. A., for refusing to conform the general practice of saluting the American flag, and pledging alleg- iance to it. To the real patriot, no matter to what country he belonged, the action of the youth must have appeared highly romm-endable. and he A Matter of Ceremony The matter, however, lias not been allowed to rest there. It has been taken up by the assistant slate com- missioner of education, who now up- holds the refusal of young Temple to -go through, to him. a meaningless ceremony, a "id orders him to be re- ceived back in the school from which ]ve recently expelled. This de- cision was only to bo expected from cue of a nation .which is proud of its fag. and whose youth, WP feel sure, would act, the very way Temple did ivere they placed under like cir- cumstances. Temple, although living in the States, was not an American citizen in the accepted term. His father is a native of.St. John, N. B., end was an officer in the artillery branch of the Canadian militia. Therefore, ic was within the boy's rights, as the assistant commissioner declared, and with which all will agree, to refuse to pledge allegiance io any Hag or gov- ernment ..but his own. This expression of authoritative opinion places on a high level the would have rated the procedure ofeftesPect the Hag called to bo paid the Cedar Grove board as eitremelylV the af thc State3' 'jrc> arrow. claims that U is no empty homage which is demanded from the Ameri- ,can youth. The incident, and Its solu- tion, serve, if anything, to more strongly impress on them what a na- tion's flag really stands for, and what it means to them. This is as it should be. The proud boast of "I am a Roman should still, -with its varia- tions, remain in the breast t of every citizen of the nation to whom he really belongs. The. incident at Ce- dar Grove may appear trivial, in that il centres Tound a merc schoolboy, "out none -the less its moral effect is: worth a great deal. vMr. (.-rottiers Is arguing that his action in refusing a conciliation board is in Liu- lUtt-resla tho men, but he hasn't convinced the men that that is true, yei, Harry Dawson's suggestion that a woman should be elected 10 the school board is entitled to considera- tion. have acted in such ca- pacity in other places and education certainly did not suffer by iho inno- vation. The lU'v. S. T. Bartlett, general secretary of the Epworth Lenguo, ad- dressing the Hamilton district league, said that all Epworth leaguers should support Mr. Kowell's banish-the-bar policy in Ontario. The Hamilton Herald argues that attempts of this sort to rally religious organizations io (he support of one or the other of the political parties must tend to di nipt the organizations. This is un- doubtedly true. Politics in church or- [animations shoukl be avoided. R. G. IJromiu'r. Jiwi twelvo year away from Out., ha heoii elected u uinnlvr of the rnKei States ConjiTes.s from Jersey, Minister of Justice' Doherty says the naval policy will not be announc- ed in the Hochelaga bye-election as Mr. Borden feels the proper place to make known the government's policy is the House of Commons.

Katon, an ominen Canadian now resuk-nt in New York was asked for an opinion of Theodore Moose-volt the other day, and this what had to say: "If we were to judge from the men and newspapers to him, w would conclude thai Colonel Hoose- was dangerous and impossible in-pub- lic life. But" tho day was shot iu- dicatcd the real attitude of the coun- try, which was practically u universal belief that ho is the greatest living American. Mr. lloosevelt, judged from tho point of vtew ot' political finesse, ftir-seeiug stutesmaiidhip and intellee- tual resource is in a class by himself. It would be absurd to suppose that he has re-entered political life because of any possible personal gain. Ho bad everything to lose and nothing io gain except. a severe battle, which, knowing him us wo tlo, would, of course, be mtlier attractive. He re- presents as real and pregnant a move- ment in political thought as Abraham Lincoln represented at his time. It so happens that -Mr. Wilson is elected as the initial representative of that movement. Mr.' Roosevelt and his following hnagiiit-d four years ago tlmt.ilr. the elected repre- sentative of that'movement, an opin- ion which Mr. Tai't did not appear to share." WEST POCKET TALKS ON THE V NEW CITY CHARTER 5.-THE DIRECT COMMISSION PLAN QUESTION THREE in pleb- iscite to be taken on Decem- .ber 9, asks the ratepayers, if they favor -the direct .commission pluu? Upon the Ratepayers' answer to this question depends "whether or not Lethbridge will adopt what lias prove-n in over three hundred cities on the continent to. be .thai-most effi- cient; form of.'City government yel evolved. An answer oC "yes'1 to this question means that the ratepayer favors.run- ning the city of Lethbridge, as nearly as it is possible to run a city, along e lines of a business 'corporation. It means reducing the number of men elected to .serve the city from seven to three. It means dividing the business of the City oE Lethbridge into three dis- tinct departments. It means placing one commission-! er at. the head of each department; j -naking him. as siear as it i's possible. absolutely and directly responsible ect to enact. through "what is known as the refer- endum, will t lie right to have re- ferred Tmck tof a vote of themselves, legislation, just as they at present have the right" to vote upon monev bylaws.' It means that each commissionei will have "the right to select his o'wn but, .if the ratepayers wish it, .the rank and'file of all'departments will be under a'form'of civil service commission. It means that the three elected com- be for-, tlieir ser- vices, aiKl'wfU -required lo devote practically, their whole time 1o -city business. No will the excuse hold tiiey didn't have time the word of sub- ordinate officials. It means that the commissioners HI m-eet frequently as a council to discuss matters jointly affecting their respective departments, or calling for joint action, and, with the assistance of the clerk and city solicitor, to draft such legislation as it is propos- Tirne to Come Forward TITK SOUND of the coming muni- cipal battle not yot clearly heard in Lethbridge, nlthough a little more interest in it is indicated in the mention of pros- pective contestants for the fray. But mere names are not sufficient; wji.il 3s iftjulred is an expression of de- cision by their owners to take part in the aiderm.inic contest. it may be asked, should there be this apparent indecision? Why need candidates be coy in making up their minds to woo thc ratepayers for their suffrages? There should be no insinuation of Immodesty levelled against any who ;irc seeking muni- cipal honors, nor should they them- selves fe-ol any sclf-conscioiisnoss in this regard. It is the discharge of public duty that ,1s demanded, and each man should bo a Jiidjji? unto himself as to his capacity for per- forming the same.

It means electing the mayor, or chief commissioner for a term of two ears, and the other two commission. ers for terms-of four years, subject, lowever. to what is known as the "recall" provision. !t means that the ratepayers, 'be- sides having control ot the commis- sioners by means of the power of re- call, will have, through what Is known as the thc right to initiate, or compel, the passage oE such legislation as they thing desir- able. It means that ihe ratepayers, It means that thc minutes of ali meetings, all transactions, and all matters, which the ratepayers have the right to pass upon before finally becoming effective, shall be correctly a-nd regularly published and placed in the hands of all ratepayers. It means thai the city will bring into its municipal 'business that high state of efficiency which is only obtainable .through individual executive control and individual re- sponsibility, coupled with that sound old principle, namely, the right, of the employer to dismiss his servant, whenever, in his estimation, that ser- vant has ceased to serve him.

Verbal Attack on Suffragettes (Tormito Saturday Xlylit) A huly rejoicing in thn iimci of Maud Mnlono has htiflj terms: "You the scatter- brained, loose longued, ill-mannered virage-as whose course retards the suf- frage cause, as do the actions of the window smashers in England." Magistrate Kempner is evidently a gentleman of easy invective, but he does not know how to impress Maud tiie folly of ways. If he would only Insinuate or declare thatj the strenuous spinster is ill-favored.! muddy-ccmplcxioried and badly-gown-' ed, he might succeed In verbal injury on that over-active lady.
