President Paul Gallagher will call a meeting of the party at an early date when the usual struggle between north and south parts of the riding will be re-enacted. Dufferin was formerly divided for electoral purposes, among the muni- cipal counties of Grey, Simcoe and Wellington, and the electoral county of bar-dwell, now extinct. In 1903 it. was created an electoral county. Dr. Barr was the first member, being elected to the Commons in 1904 by a majoriiy. of 1.286. In 1908 he was re-elected by 1.443 majority over J. N. Fish.

The the Grand Trunk "the north without doubt have, a very marked effect upon, cost of transportation, as there is _ every reason to believe that just as soon as an opposition road reaches ridge, the Canadian Pacific will do as they have done with, other j places under similar circumstances. that is, cut their rates. But the time occupied going from Lethbridge to and from Winnipeg and points eastward over the Grand Trunk pacific would necessary be a good deal longer if it were necessary to use the line northward from Leth- bridge. In both passenger and freight service time is a very important con- sideration. It is therefore necessary if the G.T.P. wishes to compete for traffic in the southern part of the 'Canadian west that it should give di- rect service to the eastward, thus obviating the time handicap in the competition. For Lethbsidgc and Southern Alberta, the new line means cheaper and more expeditious service. J 8OROEN CALLED TO TASK That the Conservative opposition made a very serious political blunder in urging delay in the ratification of the French Treaty until the inten- tions of the Unitad States govern- ment could be ascertained is very ap- parent, not only to those of the op- posite party, but- to Mr.- Borden's friends also. The idea of having Can- ada dictated to in its foreign trade relations by the United States is most repugnant to ai! true Cana- dians. This is the idea expressed very forcibly by tin- two Hamilton, Conservative papers, which call Mr. rJordeu and his suppori-ers in ac- tion, to task very sharply The Spectator says seems to be a difference of opinion among parliamentarians in resprct to the: new French treaty which Parliament has ratified. Because of re- cent uirin legislation at Washington and intimations as to what our near neighbor intends to Jo wil-h countries that make discriminating trade treat- ies with other nations, sonic mem- bers of the Dominion House are urg- ing that we shall do nothing final with the French treaty until we hear definitely how our American cousins .will act in such event, iheir fear be- ing t-hat the Americans may raise the tariff against Canadian goods and thus injure the trade of this country. The Spectator does not like this ar- gument. For Canadians to thus ad- mit that they dare not close a tradr treaty with another country, without first asking permission from the Unit- ed. States is to admit that the gov- ernment to the south of us is prac- tically the dictator -of our foreign trade policy. The French trade treaty may be a good or. a bad business arrangement. That is something which can be de- termined only after it has been given a fair trial. Evidently the. judgment ot the Canadian representatives who hact'.a hand in the framing of it was. >that was a good thing, and the .Government is disposed to ratify it. If .it should later be demonstrated in operation TO have, been a mistake its makers will be sufferers. In the meantime, however, let us'as Cana- dians play off our own "bat and not place ourselves in the humiliating po- they propose to renounce the French entrance 011 treaty Pacific from j will J OUR POINT OF VIEW the There should be-a full house at the public meeting in the Caledonian Hail to-night, held to discuss the street railwav franchise. The text of the meeting to-night is the street railway franchise. Rate- payers preparing to speak or ask questions should go prepared to stick to their text. A REMARKABLE PREACHER A young preacher who was staying at a clergy house was in the habit of retiring to his room for an hour 'or more each day to practice pulpit or- atory. At such times he filled the house with sounds of fervor and pa- thos. and emptied it of most every- thing else. Phillips Brooks chanced to be visiting a friend in this house one day when the budding orator was holding' forth. j "Gracious me exclaimed the 'Bishop, starting up in assumed ter- 'ror. "Pray, what might that "Sit down. Bishop." his friend plied. "That's only young prac- ticing vrhjf he preaches."

It has long been known that nearly all native Indian decoration Is sym- bolic as well 'as ornamental, but it was only lately that the moccasin patterns were discovered to have .spe- cial sijrnificance. One of the govern- ment scientists asked an Indian to interpret a certain piece of decora- tion. The latter said, that'the straight line meant straight paths, a good life scheme of mail delivery, suitable to Canadian conditions. off the Lords' position in the budget very well. It shows a noble lord with tears running down his face say- triangle and that the cross shown "meant the States methods, hut is devising a morning star. The streak of red at the meant the rising of the sun, the little triangles along the bottom .of the pattern indicated clouds, etc. thunder bird, or eagle, appears A recent cartoon in .John Bull hits here and there in the moccasin pat- terns of nearly all the plain tribes in the form of a more, or' less elab- orated figure barred on the double ew sharp lines at the bottom of this figure change it into a swallow, that being the, simple me- thod of denoting the stiff tail feathers of the- latter. Tire eagle figure has almost as wide a significance as the rows of squares indicating animal tracks, or the trans- straight lines which mean paths, i The Arapahoes denote the bird of thej sun upon their moccasins by an in- verted pyramid, a figure like a car- penter's square, and a cross of which each arm is formed of double lines. I It is a notahle fact that the experts of the bureau of ethnology now know more about the moccasin signs than do rhe Indians themselves. it is said that if you took your moc- j casing back to the tribe which pro-j dueed them scarcely two Indians j would be found to read their symbols "Ah, it was a woman of an- other tribe who married here, made them. She makes them like her own is about all the satisfac- tion to be expected.
