Thin [s essen- tially a move in publicity, nnd should The Tipping System commercial travellers of the X IJnitad. States have decided ag- ainst tipping. They sonio- Vhat coming to this decision, but have decided wisely. Tbe system of tipping is the curse of modern civ- ilization, and a disgrace to it. It means.the lowering of the moral tone of citizens, and the cultivation of ser- vants of the great god "Grab." The laborer is worthy of his hire and that should be sufficient. It Is up to the employer of labor to see that his employee receives his proper market value. The existence of tips gives cover Io the employer to evade his responsibilities by calling on tbe gen- eral public to mike up deficiencies pwhleh he ought to recognize. The acceptance of the system creates men boldly eitort "backsheesh" un- der another name. The'system is un- fair to the general public, "In that It twice for services rendered. It is an injustice to the poor man in the amount of the tip decides the manner in ..which this service Is ren- dered. Although the value paid for tbe service Is the same as thit paid by tbe rich .man.- full value is decid- ed by the amount of the tip. The pub- lic, through the' force of custom and convenience, is compelled to stand arid deliver, not-at the mouth of the pistol, but by the methods, silken or otherwise, of. menials. The practice is a slur on human nature, for it en- dorses its veniality. It is time that tlie -public should1 adopt the stand of these commercial travellers. It. is only by being unanimous in ao: the evil can be killed. It is one which, no doubt, will die hard, but that is no reason why it should be allowed "to exist. A' tip is worse iban.a bribe, in the fact that it in- bribing a man to conscientiously per- form what is only Ms duty to allowwi to die.

Speak- ing of the-export trade off Western Canadian cattle, he lays that "it has lieen unbusinesslike, sinfully waste- ful, anil unprofitable to the producer." IJr. Rutherford 'further states that cattre, wild, excitable, and soft off (So grass, ire driven to the .railways end forced to board cattle cars after considerable rough handling, being held in some cases for days on poor jiastnrage waiting for cars. The cattle nhippers fall foul of these state- ments on th ground that not only an unwarranted reflection is made aic- iiinsi them, liiit that, consequent on the report, the idea of the nuality of tbe cattle, would hove a detrimental effect on the stock shipped Hbronc. A public official In making ms report Is presumed to do so without fear or fa- vor. He is a person who is taken to lie one without bias. Therefore should lie paint things in colors anything but rosy It should be -accepted that be Is ttating things as they are. Resent- ment, accordingly, looks like an at- tempt at muzzling. An official has tbe right to blame as well as to praise. Should he have occasion to do the former, it should not be looked on aa Scoring an Official but'rather as a help to- wards the remedying of matters which under present conditions, have be- come the Quality of an important export. There is too much of an inclination in the present day to cover up matters which in their being made public might be prejudi- cial. Tliis is -bad Judgment, and the effects.of such a policy must in the end do more Iwtiug harm than the at- tention brought to bear by disclosures. Quality is the-only asset which a com- modity has for keeping a hold of the market. It is incumbent, for the pros- perity of a country that a standard shoul'd be maintained. Consequently resentment Is but of place. If evils exist, let them be fearlessly proclaim- ed. It will prove to others that rera- iiHes put in operation, other- wise there would be no necessity pfor bringing these evils to light. This is the way for winning confidence, and thereby preserving a market. What- ever the feeling in certain quarters may be, it Is significant that the charge made as to the negligence of feeding and watering cattle in trans- portation is being refused discussion by the C.P.R. live stock agent. More significant still is the fact that West- ern Canadian cattle in the market receive one-eighth to one-half cent a pound less than cattle shipped from- the States. There are wHn '-at doubt, reasons for this, and it is well that, a public official should be out. spoken for the welfare of the trade of the country; and for the reputation of its' exports. A Step Towards Publicity THIS Ms tho age of advertisement, and not only individuals, but corporations, recognize its va- lue. "Boost" is the motto of all, and nobody believes in hiding his light under a bushel. It is tbe wisdom of experience. For this reason, anything which helps To attract the limelight is Taken hold of. This is.tbe era of com- petition, and those who fall To seize opportunity for aserting them- are bound to go under. There- many others, have obtained an Inter- nallonal publicity by this mei :anl. Wo Worth Notina (Totonlo Globe.) The London Free Prora by-way of discounting the Liberal policy of pub- lic ownership of telephone lines, says: "The Manitoba govirnment reports a large deficit in Its telephone policy, and will increase the rites to subscrib- ers. Mr. Rowell please note." No one need be surprised to find deficit in an Administration of which the Hon. Robert Rogers was the bright particular star. In Alberta, under a Liberal government, public telephones pay a good rate of .interest.- LonV tion Free Press please note. Lethbridje Boosters (Claresbolm Review.) All narrow-minded asd boards must broade'n out their, ideas in this connection. As an ans- wer to some of the small objectors, Lethbridge has shown commendable enterprise in the Southern.
