Undoubtedly the government is consid- ering new methods of taxation for sub- mission to Parliament, Should they 'overlook a heavy tax on the profits manufacturers of "war munitions throughout Canada, there will be in- dignation and severe criticism. 'This is "mo: time for the manufacturers to grow wealthy, yet it la evident mat the firms engaged in the manufacture Jof munitions are. inaking enormous profits. They are making big profits 'oil of the. while others, thous- ands upon thousands, are making sac- that tax their in- come and savings of many years. Thousands of young men are offering their lives for their country; mothers are giving no sons, and wives their husbands- Why should the manufac- turerss not be willing to sacrifice a part of their profits to enable Canada to carry on the war? The war tariff las given them further protection. Why should the war itself enable them to grow still richer with out- rageous profits on war contracts? ,The inquiry of D. A. Thomas, Trho "came out to as the represent- ative of the Minister of Munitions in England, revealed that under the eye of the Dominion government, Canad- ian manufacturers were being per- mitted to make fabulous profits on every shell they made in their lac- Hones. As a result the munition bust- has been re-organised, not at the demand or, the Canadian government, tut at the demand oi Mr. Thomas. Details are published in the Wall Street Jourial in connection with .the prorita made by Canadian firms. "Canadian Car Foundry's total busi- says the paper, "consists of a '.number.of orders..

HENDEKSON GARAGE LETHBRIDQE, ALBEBTA Ottawa, Nov. is taking its revetigo on tho Borilcn govern- ment. The sins of its youth ai'D com? ing home to roost. Pontius Pilate, it will bo i'cmi'mboi'od, could wash his hands of his troubles, but tho Bordcu government finds it not so easy to ho ircc of its early indiscretions. For instance, there arc the Na- tionalists with whom the Cunserva- tive party formed a league to diviiic Qiiclee and defeat Laurier. The gospel of the Nationalists in 1911 was that tho NavalService Act was a thinly veiled plan ot England's to drag Canadians from their homos, and send them as cannon meat to the seas. Of course one of the ob- jects of that act was to uiablc us to dciciid our own shores and make it largely unnecessary to send Canadian armies to Europe to defend our shores from thai distance, as we are doing now in Flanders, and else- where. But the Nationalists did not see it in that light and closed their eyes to the truth. The eyes of many arc scaled to this day, in which re- spect their eyes resemble the mouths of their leaders at Ottawa who ceas- ed shouting as soon as they took of- fice. However, there is no doubt that then as now, a few oi the National- ist leaders and most of the National- ist followers bcliead what they preached. At least .one leader was sincere enough to imagine that the Conservative party would keep its promises and that the Nationalist doctrine would be represented by something more than four cabinet ministers, three of whom could be trusted to put the soft pudal on, when a cabinet portfolio was the in- ducement. He was in hopes that Na- tionalism would be an article of tho party creed. When this did not turn out as Mr. Monk wished and expect- ed, he remitted his office, resigned all honors and titles, .and withdrew from public life. Thus did Mr. Monk show himself the one faithful, true man in that rollicking band of place .hunters who called themselves the Nktional- ist leaders. The party arrangements in the House of Commons made room for I Mr.- Blondin, he who would have shot I holes in the Union Jack, and as Dep- uty Speaker he voted with as much joyousiuss for three Dreadnoughts to be furnished by Canada to England, as he had spoken previously on th'j hustings against a navy for' Canada furnished by herself. It is hard to sec i just 'where "the nationalism is in that vote of Mr. Blondiu's, but he seemed able to reconcile it with reason and his "expressed opinions, as did also Messrs.' Pelletier, Nantel and Co- derre who were ministers oi the Crown and felt their position keenly, even more keenly than they did their previous convictions. i As a matter of fact the Govern- ment could at all times depend on the vote of-the Nationalist-leaders in the It thii Gcvcnunent had ask- ed them to vote for a conscript army to be sent overseas to''conquer-China in a Canadian navv. handled by. pressr. ted men they 'have sortuite cheerfully Moreover, they would have made a virtue of it by explaining that they did it from a sense of duty to their high office. Come what might the" Nationalist leaders would stick to tlie ship oi state as long as there was a dollar in the hold. 'As it was with the Nationalist leaders in the House of Commons, so it came to be with the Nationalist rank and file. For a time there was a disposition among seven or eight of the younger and more fiery num- bers, Leaded by Mr. Sevigny, to stand up for more or less glorious principles and Tight of it, but Aviser counsels prevailsxl, and when, a cabinet shift lifted Mr. Sevigny into the position of Deputy Speaker, the last ounce of starch was taken out ol that pocket revolution. As time went by the Nationalist leaders and followers in: the House' of Commons were asked to. swallow, one prmcip e after another, all of which they did quite chceriully, knowing that they, were oh the sunny side of the fence and that there must be a good time coming. For some the good time came, for others only promises. Fortune favored Pelletier, Nantel, Co- derre, Blondin, who were cabinet rain- i ister, and Sevigny, who was in line lor promotion. Now that Mr Sevig- ny's claim to a portfolio has bc.n brushed aside by the appointment if Mr. Patcnaude, it would be-interest- ing to learn u he is the same willing supporter of the government that he iias been ever he found the road to preferment Meanwhile it cannot be denied that the Nationalist leaders did well for t'emsehes in Parliament and only left that troub- 'lod arena when something more per- manent offered. Messrs. Pelletier and Coderre are now judges, while Mr. Nantel is a railway -They also serve who -wait till they get something better. Latterly, for some reason or other, tho Nationalists have been falling away from the the Government. True Mr.- Blondin, as Secretary of State, sits so tight that nobody can fry hint loose, and Mr. Patenaude, a Na- tionalist ol repute and a skilled or- ganizer in. Quebec where organization- is much needal, has jutt been taken into the cabinet vice Coderre resign- ed, but things, as Sweet Little But- tercup says are not just what they seem and.skimmed :milk masquerades as cream'and altogether the.Nation- alist politicians in Parliament arc not feeling as gay as they did, say a year ago. It looks, to some extent, I as If the Government's, -face were I turned from them and as'if they felt the chill. It may he that or it may be that the political instinct, the siUh of Messrs. Codcrre and Nantel, saw the Government's finish and that tlwy scurried for while the scurrying was may 'be either of these things hut -the fact remains that forehandfd and fore- sighted Nationalist ,'sadcrs are ting out from under and that Hie den Government; is making no at, tempt to slag Wbat'i you Iturry Here's your hat. That stems to. be the attitude toward the Na- tionalist .leaflets.whose' relative pro- portions in tub Cabinet has recently Iteoit cut down one-fourth. Only thrco Nationalist cabinet minlst ra grow four grew before, Mr. Cas- groin, .tl.e hew. Postmaster General, boiug an 'aid-lino Conservative after Proml.r Burden's own heart. Apparently, what is aimed at is good; riddance of a nuiiitier oi em- barrassing associates.

There is no reason to doubt Mr.' that he and Mr, could have been cabinet ministers in tho Bordcn Government four years ago. It was the Govern- ment's policy to kill all the Nation- alist leadeis with kindness, but La- vergne and Bourassa refused to ho killed. It is not to their discredit that they put their principles above reward of office and money. These two 'men have sought to keep the flame alive in Quebec, but they have sought to do it' openly, not clandes- tinely, as pertain Nationalist mem- bers of the Bordcn cabinet are said to have done. At any rate the Na- tionalists' campaign against recruit- ing, secretly aided and comforted Trom within, has been very displeas- ing to the Borden Government which administer a check. j This explains Major General Sir ISam Hughes' offer to Armani! La- j vergne, the offer to give him com- mant! of an overseas battalion if ho would take it. This offer Mr. La- vorgiie declined, not without adroit- ness. His answer was such that he left it "all up. to.
