The Montreal Witness, in calling attention to this feet, points out that they are all drawing large pensions from the country. What is this if not Considering that a pen- sion is 'the reward of activities tliat are suppoiedly exhausted, there are those wlio' would consider the ance of one bar to other stren- uous occupations.

Mr. Gushing in ,u speech u! is an easy thing for a man to get on the hustings and make insinua- tions against public men, but it is a cowardly thing and no person with any sense of manhood or honor would do it. It is more honorable to hold a man up on the street and demand his money. than to endeavor to d> priv.e a public man of his character. It says very little for the opposi- tion that in- their forlorn hope of reaching the treasury benches they are forced to resort to such base tac- tics.

He is a Conserva- tive but is not-infatuated with the scandal campaign that is being pon- R. L. Borden and his fol- lowers. Interviewed by the Montr al Witness, Mr. Dalby was asked: "What do you call the worst cle- ment in the Conservative "The self-righteous element; which prates continually about purity, .whether it practices it or not; which takes a magnifying glass or a magic lantern, to illustrate the corruption of. the unspeakable enemy and leaves it to the other fellows to discover-.or denounce the sins of its own party. on the Hat A ifedicine Hat man died and we-it to his This man. walked around growling, as .most people of the Gas City do finding fault with everything, auc saying that he couldn't see that hea ven was much belter than Medicine Hat.

Violation of Principle The attitude taken by the Socialist party in Canada a violation of Socialist principles (applause.) et together as working men and he result would be good. In parts of Europe the Socialist and labor paries were pulling in op- posite directions: In a few years the Socialist' party of Canada would be the governing power. If there was to be a labor movement it must be a genuine labor >arty and the men returned must not seek for personal honors. Mr. Hardie took his seat amid a continued ap- plause. Delegate Simpson, Toronto, said he fully expected Mr. Hardie's re- marks would produce the effect they did. He felt Delegate Landers' resolution would brjng forth good fruit. The congress should not force upon the few Socialists present a vote Ihat would compromise them. They were not there representing the Socialist party, but as trade union- ists. Delegate Landers said he agreed with Delegate Simpson that the reso- lution would compromise" the Social- ists and he asked to be .allowed to ;withdraw his resolution. .Pledge Delegate Pettipiece said as a mem- ;ber of the Executive of the Socialist iparyt of British .Columbia he would Of Portland OM TRACK TODAY Tte tatlej to.

The quinquennial slangwhanging which always breaks out before a Dominion- election, has been organ- ized and systematized this time, to such an extent that it is calculated to defame the character, and injure the financial credit of the country. I think some of the gentlemen who solemnly announce that purity is the chief plank in their party platform are doing themselves an injustice.

"Do you think that at a time when there is said to be a great deal of cor- ruption in public life, cither party is justified in adopting purity a's a chief plank in its platform? 'I think that to talk about purity as a party policy is to juggle with words. A party policy is a matter of opinion something which differentiates one party from another. There is no room for difference of opinion about the necessity for honesty in public life Of course, both parties profess it, and both are more or less sincere in so doing. The old maxim that honesty is the best policy is a cynicism. Hon- esty which is only a policy is simply a form of dishonesty. The honesty which becomes aggressive at election times is certainly open to the sus- picion of being a matter of policy. I do not say that it would be- uncon- stitutional, but it would be un- usual to hold a Dominion .-Action without somebody denouncing the corrupting of the constituencies and promising to build the Prince Edward Island tunnel." His observations are worthy the attention of the Conservatives who are trying to fill the air with scandal talk in an attempt to fool tho pie. What the country wants party with a policy, not a party with a tongue for scandal. Lemieux Act is not condemned by the Trades and Labor Congress. Halifax, Sept, the closing session of the Trades and Labor.Con- gress of Canada, Delegates Landers, Hamilton, introduced a resolution ihat the members of the Labor Un- ion should unite and vote for the Labor or Socialist candidate, in their Different sections. Mr. Landers, who is tho Labor Candidate for East Ham- ilton, went into detail and gave very forcible reasons why the resolution should go through. Delegate Pettipiece, Socialist Can- didate for Medicine Hat, said the only for the Labor candidate to be successful was to have a distinct platform and that platform should be public ownership. Delegate James, Toronto, said he ing the Act be submitted- to the Congress pledge itself to bv the vote." Act. Delegate Landers, said, the vote should be left to the affected trades. Delegate Fisher, Montreal, said he was in favor of the "Lemieux Act with the exception of .clause 62. But the funny part of the businega is the way these increases -are to be provided for without increasing the taxation. The city engineer's extra seven hundred is to come out of the profits of the electric plant, so is the superintendent's extra six hundred, and there will be a portion of the solicitor's increase charged up in the same way. When the Council figured up the probable revenue of the plant they found out that the profits would fit the payments of the debenture in- debtedness just a shade too soon, but that extra efficient management and economy would balance it- up even. Now, if a big slice of that is to be cut off for salaries, where in- the mischief will the debenture payments get off at There must be a "boost in the tax rate unless the electric plant is a bigger gold mine than it looks from the road. It is reckless throwing away of the filthy lucre that makes people elect those mean, nar- row, sting fellows on the Council that are a curse to any municipality. There is a happy medium. A man gener- ally values himself high enough, or j a little more. So wlien the solicitor thinks he is worth a thousand to the city it is hardly likely, he is worth twelve hundred, and it would not hurt the .engineer to split the differ- ence between the value he placed on himseli.when he wanted the job and now that he has had it for.a while It's kind of hard on the other fellows to call a as they are getting ready for their hand-out, butlt mus be done: House, 5 rooms, plaster- ed and 2 lots near eleva- tor down Balance very easy terms.

Box W7 thought Mr. Hardie would tell the Socialist and Labor party could come together. Delegate Sherman, Socialist Candi- date for Calgary, said there was no Socialist candidate up, he would vote for the Labor candidate1.

M.P., is not paper man who never to be candidate when there an elcctii-n. He is going to meet him in a of j-int meetings. Now isn't Mr. good enough f-r Alberta? Didn't his speech eon- you that is honest and straight and ena. avoring to l'c--t interests o' Hi.- West? At Hespeler, in reply to a state- ment by Z. A. Hall to the effect that what Canada wanted was more o The Best Thing Secretary Draper said this was the best that could be done. The Congress had gone a long way to assist the Western delegates and it was up to the latter to support the executive in this matter. The act had been tried and found all right and the only fault that had so been found was with the work- ing of the Act and the boards ap- pointed and he never would agree to have it abolished. Delegate Todd, Montreal, said he was against the Act, the amendment might settle it for a time, but only for a time. Delegate York, Fort William, was also opposed to the Act- Delegate Sherman said he would support Delegate Simpson's amend- ment to the resolution. Not One Good Reosan Delegate Studholme said he i iavor of the abolition of the :Act. Delegate Pettipiece read the tele- grams to and from Sir Wilfrid Laurier and suggested that a copy bo. sent to R. L. Bordea and the, answer given to both on October 26. ABOUT.. DAD'S COUNCIL SM Dad's Council has been having bou- quet's thrown at them all year, and they hit the right place, too. Dad's subjects don't raise any holler about spending money when it is spent, but when it comes to giving it away thai io a different matter. Talk Well, we have got the square, and the people are mighty glad to have the business settled. The report o the committee made good reading fo the people, even though the autho of the document could not resist th in a boost for a wno "iii the public eye. The thing was. so. hanged thin, however, that it lost its desired moral effect, and is a good joke. Now, it is up to the Council to get busy on plans for its im- provement so as to make it a real park, not a likely-looking sheep pas- ture. I have a hunch that the direc- tion of affairs in regard to the fixing up of the square, and the" boulevards should be handed over to a commis- sion of citizens, probably the execu- tive of the Horticultural Society, that the editor keeps cracking away at. A Council committee that could make dandy streets would make a proper bull of park paths and flower beds. Give the work to men who delight in these things, and who would willing- ly serve their city in this way, prob- ably without getting anything out of it but appreciation or execration. J. F.
