The Nationalists Still ''.Disloyal IF ANYONE hat any doubt of the present day attitude of the Na- tionalist crowd is-itu whom the Conservatives allied themselves, both on the stump nnd by the three places qiven them in the cabinet, the follow- ing extract from the "Devoir" of an Interview with Jlr. Arrannd Lavergue nuKea it clear: "In reference to the navy he says, "I have fought in the province of side bv side with the Conservatives, who ilso, in the district Quebec at least, commencing with the present minis- ter iU Peii-etier. were all National- ists: I have ,not changed my posi- tion, and I love to believe that al- though our allies became 'blue' Jlst of September, they have 'not changed either on that question.' wait to know, before I pronounce. Everyone knarts that I have and .that I am still, opposed to all partici- pation by Canada in wars of ihe em- pire. Together we have churned that before any change can take place in thib nutter, the people of Canada shall be consulted in a plebiscite. Ministers and members from Quebec are bdimtfm honor to see that this is carried out." Mr. Lavergne rather stretches the point when he says that the Conservatives are pledged to a plebiscite.- At least -Mr. Borden's phrase has always hceu that he would "consult the people." which seemed .designed io be broad enough to iutil- it would be done at a gen- eral electiou. It seems impossible that the .people should be expected to be able to pronounce on the intri- cacies of 11 naval law submitted to them in referendum or that any use- ful question could be put to them as n plebiscite. Contrast this statement of Mr. Lavergnu's with Ihe pronounce- .inent .of Sir'Wilfrid Laurier. In ad- 'ilressing li is followers be said: 'Tf the rights'of Britain are menaced somewhere I would come to you and ask you to give me a hand to tight for them, and I know you would respond. Thai is ,ihe ring jn which J have always fought and in which I will remain until my last hour .comes, then I 'wJH'fall wilh my "face towards the enemies of Canadian hypocrisy, prejudice and injustice." Colorado's Prison System A XUERTA'S prison system is not entirely new, but it is of a type that is modern and humane. In this province we have set before us idea that confinement in prison should not be wholly featured as pun- ishment but the prisoner should he treated aa a man worthy of reform. Thus 'he is garbed not in a striped suit but in working costume. He is made to work in the open air on the farm and ou the roads. True, the system has its critics, but very few. Ths public generally approve of the plan and there is no 'illation it is working out well. Colorado follows a similar method of treatment to its prisoners. Warden Tynan, of the prison, reports that in four years he has built, about 1000 miles of road in Colorado with labor worth J2 a day, out which cost only cents. He now has liOO of Ins SOO convicts en- gaged in that work without armed guards, and many miles away from the prison 'walls. One hundred more ;ire employed under the same condi- tions on the liiOQ acre farm of the prison, in other words, 50 cent. of his prisoners are working outside the walls. This system has spread in the last four years until it is now used with success in Oregon, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, and Nevada. build approximately worth of roads the wardeu t-aid recently. "Prisoners are Heut out to do the work. They farm a camp and supervised in their work by a skilled road man. For thirty days of good deportment the prisoner receives ten days 'good time.' One prisoner out pi' every -GQ escapes. Before they are sent out they give their word of hon- or they will not1 attempt lo escape, and will prevent others from tryin They get relatives and friends to make like promises on their behalf, so that when a man does escape he throws down his best friends. The public is against the contract system. The labor unions have Indorsed the use of convicts on the roads. They build excellent roads, too." This is encouraging and will stim- ulate Hon. Mr. McLean in still fur- thering the policy lie has adopted in Alberta.

At feast the sheep industry is due for a turn in the right direction, and Alberta farmers are showing the proper spirit in engaging in an indus- try that will be safer an-d saner for their own interests as well as'those of the province and the Dominion than has been straight grain 'growing.
