It is paltry business to withhold com- mendation where comraoiidation has been earned and is based on obvious results. And since the booze, vendors were shot up the spout, the oral's department has been exceed-: Insly well-behaved. Everybody is sat- isiied. Hero In Calgary the Land Titles office runs like clockwork, the work being carefully and accurately looked after. So what is there to kick about? True, we have heard ot booze cases 'against Grits behiK ordered not to be prosecuted, but this won't stop the world revolving round tlie sun nor change the planets In their course. Friend Edwards is not quite fair to Hon. A. J. McLean, likely because lie doesn't know him. McLean is not a talker. He doesn't exploit the doings of his department in tho papers. He is a quiet, business administrator and we question If any department In the Alberta government Is as carefully and economically administered as that ot the provincial secretary. He has even been accused ot being too eco- nomical. A, I.

THE TARIFF AND CANNED GOODS And so the tariff doesn't affect the price of canned goods. That is what the Conservative press tells us. Will tiiey kindly explain the statements made in the following letter, which recently appeared in a Slontreal news- paper: "Regarding the exorbitant prices for canned foods, in renly to a regis- tered circular dated 19th May last, urging the purchase of old canned goods, we registered and mailed the following on the 23rd May: 'With such horrors threatening ns and a cold winter coming on. the only hope we can see is for our govern- ment to remove the duty and allow some canned goods to come into our poor, distressed country. We hope vou will use your influence with them, as true patriots, and have this done.'- "On the llth September, 1316, sales were made in the United States of several thousand cases of tomatoes at ninety cents (90c) per dozen. "Today I am offered thousands more at 51.30 in the United States, but the Canadian price, net cash at the fac- tory, is per dozen, or, say 52.60 to "the retail trade, which means 25 cents per tin retail to the consumer, while as late as Thanksgiving Day United States consumers could buy three tins for 25 cents retail.

Will our presen 'government alter the tariff to provid the remedy? It is not iikely. The leave the high cost of living prob to the municipalities. Is reported as saying: "During the first year of the war." the minister said, "Canada had prac- tically no control of her forces over- seas. Almost everything Canadian had been refected, transport, rifles, trucks and other equipment. In many Instances they had been superseded by inferior articles. 'I am saying this on my own responsibility.' observed Sir Sam, 'as I am saying everything else.1 He had objected to this sys- tem, 'objected to being treated as a crown colony.' The British controlled the command in the field, but in al: else Canada, and Canada alone, musl control He blamed, not the British Eovemmiit. but the totally inexper lenced officials of that government.
