Few. if any, of these hold to any of the extreme views nslci by those opposed to Sir Wilfrid's pol- icy, while many have come out square for his policy. Among the journals of Canada that has earned the reputation of being independent politically is the Can- adian Courier of Toronto. In a re- cent issue it said: However, these "grangers" probably more consistent- than the protesters who declare for u money contribution to -the British fleet, and against a Canadian Unit of an Im- perial navy. When the South African occurred, a money contribution to the British funds would not have been half so valuable as the same amount of money spent on Canadian troops rushing irom all quarters of troops rushing from all quarters of the world to assist the motherland in its struggle was a valuable one from an international point of view. Mr. Chamberlain counted more on the moral effect than on the act- ual physical benefit.

Further, when colonial troops arrived at the scene of conflict in South Af- rica they were found to be, man for man, equal to the trained British soldier. They were less disciplined ad -many qualities which the soldiers of the line did not pos- sess. In scouting and outpost work they were vastly superior. It may- be tihe same, with the colonial units of the navy. They may not, exactly resemble" the British units, but they may have some superior and useful qualities. A SERIOUS OVERSIGHT A vfry important matter in connec- tion with the street railway franchise spoken of by W. C. Simmons at. the Tuesday evening banquet. He pointed out that in the agreement no provision was made to allow running rights over the lines in the city to other electric roads that may, be built in the vicinity. This is certainly a great oversight and one that in itself warrants the defeat of the by-law. There will be other elec- tric Lines that wish to enter the city. Tile South Alberta Land Company, for instance, already has announced its intention of building nn electric line fiom Lake McGregor in the Snake Valley to Lethbridge. If the tin- gives the exclusive use of -the streets to the company .seeking the franchise this road :r.y! others that may be built will not be. allowed, to enter the city except by the grace of the com- pany, which would be a most uncer- tain thing to depend on. It is generally reognized that, the necessity of an electric railway for Lethbridge is not as much ,a matter of.personal convenience for the citi- zens as it is for the purpose of at- tracting and consolidating business. The city is not yet so iarge but what most of the citizens can walk to at- to. their business. But all around the city are small towns springing up. TCiese must be brought dnto close relation with the city so that the Conservative as premier. He has! taken the position of the champion of an ill-used and d'Mvn-trodden peo- ple. He has sought to make political capital and personal popularity out of eveiy possible chance to have a difference of opinion with the govern- ment at Ottawa. The federal government has tried to consult co-operate with the provincial government in many ways but with no success. He chose ra.ther to be an ill-used martyr. As a result the province has not developed as rapidly as have other provinces whose governments worked in harmony with the federal government.

When I was a youngster I attended school at a place where the use of the birch rod was not an unusual event.
