WHAT PREACH THEY DON'T The Winnipeg Vvco I'ross points out that tlio dl-sClosure In the course of investigation into the Department of Morine that thei-o was n pntronago list of firms nnd persons to wliom went wliatcvcr orders for ^oods or services were neo' thoughtful Canadian must commend the good work that is being done, and which wos begun Iho year before Inst by the Dominion Government, when the Civil Soj^-vico Commission was appointed. It is most desirable nnd of the highest importnnco that in the Dominion civil, service there .should be a rigorous stnndnrd enforced. Why should not Departmental patronage lists be done nrwny with in Manitoba, n.sks the .Free I'ress. Take, for instance, the I'rovincial Department of Public Works, presided over by 'Sir. Robert Rogers. When pur chases aro made by that Department does ifr. Rogers see to It that they arc secured in the open market at the lowest price? Not nt all. The system which is in operation Is a very dilTercnt one indeed, from that. A A clue to what the system is may be obtained by taking the rrovincial Public Accounts nnd hunting for the name of a LilJeral. And do the current market prices prevail in the case of purchases made by the Manitoba Oovernment? Xot to any very great e.Ttent. MAOLAOAN OF YORK Archbishop Maclagan of York, one day foimd himseff in a mllway carriage with two drunken men, one of whom complained that he had lieen robbed of a five pound note, nnd was datormlncd to search the pockets of his fellow-passengers, "I iMgan to feel very uncomfortable," said Dr. Maclagan, "as I hap. pened to hn^'o n ftvo-pound note In my pocket. However, I d^rmincd to sit quietly, nnU folim sleep. "Presently carao the challenge: 'I say, neighbor,' but 1 mndeno answer. Then the man grabbed me by the arm nnd shook mo violently; but I did not wake up. "Ho kept on shaking, but still X ro-malnetl impassive. Then his frioud interfered with, M sny, bill, leave htm alone, can't you? He's drunker than you are." " AMOT Dm COUNCIL OUU WHEAT (Toronto Saturday Night) It seems strange that a consumer in Mexico should look to Alberta for wheat, with the whole of the Western States lying between. Special significance, therefore, seems to attach to such news items as this dis-|)atch from I^thbridge: "The Taylor Milling Company has rcccivctl nn order for ten cars of Alberta rod wheat from Jklexico." The wheat grown in the Canadian West must bo earning a widespread reputation for quality. PARTY STRONGER THAN BRYAN William .Tcnnings Bryan hints that Tammany knifed him. In New York city the Democratic candidate for governor had a big majority while Bryan was quite badly beaten by Toft. Naturally the presidential candidate wonders what was wrong. However the situation in New York IS dufdicated in several states. The election of Gov. Johnson for the third time iu Minnosota, Bryan continuing to lose the State of Mlmie-eota, the election of Thomas R. Marshall, Democratic candidate' for Governor of Indiana, Bryan continuing to lose the State, and the election of .ludson Harmon, Democratic candidate for Gov. of Oliio. Bryan contin. uing to lose the State, are coses in point. Another point which might have added to Mr. Ilrynn's discom-torturo was the result in Missouri, which he conlidently expected to win by 2fi,000 as well as bringing in ex-Heprtsontativo ^William S. Cowherd, the Democratic candidate for Governor. Instead. Bryan lo-ses the .State and Cowherd gives place to a Republican Governor, Herbert lloxllcy, tlio first Republican Governor of the State in forty .years. A DENTIST'S CHILD (Philadelphia Bulletin) Dr. Frank G. Dostwtck. official dentist to the Sultan of Morocco, hns been siHsnding his vacation in I'lain-field, N. J., nnd at a recent dinner he said, apropos of a bad ohiW: "It is wise to punish children, but not corporally. "I know a dentist in Olbraltor who got out a bii-ch rod to punish his little son with^ono day. "The boy, looking at the rod, said piteously: " 'Papa, would you mind giving me gas first?' " Some people have been raialnit a roar about the street lightlnt and have Jui'nped on the city superintendent (in his absence) prettj' hard because the lights , do not ahlho aa lights thai are set upon a candle-stick and also because there ia not a greater svipply of them. I know that the lights are bad enough but I know too that tho superintendent Is doing his lovol best to got .them In shape. But ho has had his hands ful) of .work that had to bo dono on account of tho street work and hjw not boon able to got men that aro any good to put up tho lights, some of which, by tho wnj% are still on tho way from somewhere to here. I don't know whether or not wo can hope to have better lights in tho houses and stotvs until the new system is put in but the lights are pretty bum ,iuat now. Tho system may have a blgRcr load than it can carry but it certain ly dowj not hand'out very much light from each bulb. Sometimes some one with a nose for graft wlU suggest that there is a collusion between tho engineers and tho opticians as tho Poor lights are putting tho optics of the populace on the rocks. \ ATUHOAY, """"" ' w NOVIMItR Bl, INI |t���)lltlM!il.tli. alongside of somo of -the finest residences in tho city. For the sake of the gonornl ap-ponranco of the.city as well as for tho protection of the interests of those citizens who hnvo invested large sums in their residences there should bo some regulations in this ^pspect. If a man wants to build a shack he should be made to do so where there are other shacks or where there aro no buildings at all. It is a case of considering either the interests of the man who has already in-vcstod or the nmn who is going to invest. And just by tho snmo token tho city should -.have n building inspector. Tho city engineer has got too much to do to look after all tho bulldiugs that uro being put up nil over tho city. As it is buildings arc being put up that aro not according to the bylaws and are regular fire-traps. Every firo that occurs in the city shows faulty construction which would not have occurred if there had been a building inspector whose whole business it was to look after such things.
