It went in- to a fury and declared it to be a 'scheme to whitewash the government. What is bothering the Province more ihaa anything else is that it, and all -ether tradiicers of the Liberal party, now ho confronted ivub. the task of making good on the vile charges made, or being shown up to the elect- orate in their true colors. Even sup- posing the committee were disposed to "whitewash the government if wrong were shown, that would not in tho least affect the evidence, and the Re- gma Province and other muckrakers would have full opportunity of pre- senting their evidence, and if there was Anything wrong shown up the Province could be trusted to give it flam.ins publicity and the electorate would get the story irrespective of .what tho finding of the committee would The Province- knows that it-has no proof of the charges it has been making, casting aspersions OTI the honor of ministers of the crown and others, and facing the possibility of being driven to the corner-it is vainly trying to prepare for the fall by decrying the investigation in ad- and frying to create the im- pression that it will not be fair. The charges were false and were delib- erately designed to injure reputations. The government has called the bluff, and the hluffers squeal. The electors of Saskatchewan can easily see through the game. OUR POINT OF VIEW What do ill I tho wfmlhliUCtt suuul tor any way? Souu1 tiro still tliluk- ins about their polu-y.

VEST POCKET TALKS ON THE NEW CITY CHARTER Is Commission Plan Un-British T Civic Tendencies HE T13NDEXCY OF CITIES io- ivards the comiuissicn form of government or. at any rate, to] using whatever powers they possess to approach iis principles as nearly as possible may bo said to become ap- parent almost daily, it has been ask- ed why cities like Montreal should not be making any movement In the direction of commission government, return 10 ing system m vogue before "acd, accordingly, why a young city isio.' this beinlr government by the like Lethbridee should ba seeking to i city council and its commitiees adept it. A report in our columns The meeting is further yesterday from -Montreal furnishes a that it luraishc-s another made use of the following opinion. It wa.s that all felt that commission gov- eriimen't" 'would be best for the city, but if Quebec feit it impossible to Srant thjs_reform at the present time, had some suggestions to on the making of the present system more efficacious. Further the purely aldennauic sys- tem was condemned by the- speaker remarking that no one would care to return to the system in vogue before 'sufficient THAT IT.13 "UN-BRITISH" is the latest phjsction to be hurled at commission form of govern- ment which It is proposed to embody in the new city charter. It is argued that if the ratepayers of Uethuridge vote for the- direct commission plan Jiey will be "turning their hacks upon lime-honored British and adopting some new fangled and un- proveii "American scheme." This, it can easily be shown, is not ,rue, and even if it were, would it he any argument against the plan? Let is see! Is noi 'the history of the British history- of. their- material their political aud social institutions, in fact of every phase of their it not one long story of progress, of evolution, of improvement upcu what previously is not the very source of Britain's greatness her cosmopolitanism, her readiness and wonderful anility to as- similate that which is best and most desirable in other races aud in other countries, adapting it to her own re- quirements, blinding ir with her own institutions cr .Cdeas, as the case may be? Did not Britain obtain -her Jaw from Rome, her macheimuk'S from Arabia and Egypt, her philosophy from the Greeks and Latins, her lan- guage from even" civilized nation that ever existed? .Is not her government- al system a blend of the customs of the Saxons who name from the bants of the -and -the Xornians who came from France, developed and modified and improved -to .meet the needs and ideas of each succeeding generation? Even that great'code of "moral eth- ics has ever been Britain's source of strength and which guides the daily lives of so many of'her peo- ple, was laid down, no[ by an English- man, but by a Jew. To argue that "we should refuse to adopt the commis- sion form of government '.in Leth- bridge en the ground that it has been adopted by another country, is to ar- gue that Great Britain should have abjured Christianity. Great. Britain on one occasion, when she thought that she would benefit .by so doing, sent, to Holland and tm an- other occasion to Germany, for a king, while Queeii Victoria the Good sought a Prince Consort from a foreign conn- j try. It is the general practice for J British princes to bring home wives j from continental Europe, arid it is quite the thing tor the aristocracy of England to replenish their shattered fortunes by alliances with the wealthy American women. All of which simply goes to show that, even if the commission" plan of I government is a ''foreign" in adopting it, Lethbridge would not] he turning her back upon ''iime-hon-j ored British principles" hut would be i doing just the reverse, adhering j strongly to the oldest and'-soundest British principle, of them ail. But it happens that the commission form of government ccnfcrms'inore to British ideas than to American, it happens that opponents to the plan I in the United Suites have always i branded it as HG-American: in fact in! its early days, owing to its ment of the British principle of the concentration of executive and legis- lative -duties, it was often referred to in the States as the system: Discussion of this phase or the mat- ter, however, must he leii to the next article in this series.
