TUo Mothodlst church is depriving tUo paalorato at mew by putting thorn to work M niprnl retorm secretaries. Shouldn't every pnstor be a morn 1 re-torn; worker In his own cotnmunlty without requiring salaried assistance from the ontaldo? One of the dangers ot tho churches of the present day Is thai lUey win bo over oUlccced. The Calgary Herald oxonses the Tory Inactivity on high freight rates by blaming the late Liberal government's fallnre to bring about relief. U'ell, tliat is no excuse for the Bor-donltos. They wont Into power promising to remedy a lot ot evils. Aboiit all thoy have done up to the present l9 to dismiss Grit ofllcials. Eastern manufacturers are beginning to threaten to leave tho big citleq on account of the high valuation placed upon .their properties for. assessment purposes. The merchant Is feeling tho pinch, too, but as Tovonto Saturdaiy Night points out, the consumer pays the piper In tho long run. pTaxcs are always charged up In making tho price to tho public. The west should keep thtise facts ot high land values nnd ta.xeB In mind when agitating that factories should locate here. That was a batl expose of Uopubll-can tactics tho other day when evidence was produced to show that ono of tho campaign managers had endeavored to throttle tho press by getting them to sign n contract for advertising with this clause included: "Tho undersigned agree that no article or tidvortiaing of any kind or nature will be published on this or any other page of our plf-por advocating tho election of any candidate ot any party for tho presidency and vice presidency of 'tho United States other than \Vm. U. Tatt and James S. Sherman, their electors, and tho I^opubllean nominees for the different state oflloes." umON THE DUKE'S TRAIN The Awakening of a Giant WHEN tho Saturday Evening Post remarks that political progress in China Is important to the United States in that a freer ; nnd more prosperous world will '^.int � more and more Atnorlcon cotton, and 'everjijhing else tho counlTj- can pro-t duce, we likewise estiniate the import-j nuce of tho new republic as a market for our productions. The remarks ot Dr. Morrison; the new political adviser cf China, published in our columns consequently form a subject of interest. Speaking of the reforms already accomplished, he said: "Telegrams have been cheapened, jiinl brought within reach of th^ ! masses at uniform raites throughout ' the CQuntry. Th� cost of the Chinese ) newspapers has been greatly reduced, j n more important thing than you may ! think. Newfi dpspatches now go daily I to the remotest corners of the land, an extraordinary 'thing for China. The ^valls ot many cities are being pulled . down. Those of Shanghai have gone already, and those of Canton are go- ing. That is a change significant of much. There, has been a remarkable simplification ot the methods ot government. For Instance, foreign affairs are in charge of a minister aod a vioe-ministor instead of a cumberous board. We are using the Christian calendar and Sundays are observed as days of rest in the public ofhces." AVilth Its great Iron beds and. outcrops of coal,'.with railw;ays pcnetrat-Ing the same, China has all the material to ibecome a formidable competitor In tho industries ot the world. With this in view It becomes an Important matlter for the present Industrial nations to seo that everything which tends to raising the cost of production is eliminated. �In vl�v ot the future this applies equally to us as to others. The Yellow Peril Is' becoming Imminent 'though not In the way the Emperor of Germany meant It. Therefore, It is a case of girding our loins and preparing tCn the Qventualltles which may arise iix the markeits of the world. Lecturing for COSMO HAMILTON, the well-known English dramatist has been lecturing lu Montreal, and lias made a somewhat sweeping condemnation of the educational system ot England. But, to place tho remarks of the dr.^matio author at their Iiroper face value, it will be wise to remember that his particular calling leads him into the pardonable sin qf :plftylng to tho gallery. Consequently, U will be necessary to add the requisite grain of salt to many of his caustic utterances. So far as the charge of 'snobblsh-ticss is concerned it is -not entirely confined to the British Isles, and is a trait found in all countries where social .distinctions, natural or artificial, GNist. Even In the Republic to tho * south ot us, where in theory It has no , place, it Is not altogether absent, and ;Mr. Hamilton will not deny that there , ere American parents who . have a i predilection for theso so-called "gen-i tlemen'fl schools" in much tho same iliroportlon as certain in England. We admit that there is a certain nmouut ot truth in Mr, Hamilton's Btatements, but he is arguing from ithe particular to the general. There iJs not a doubt that there is a certain jtypo o� young man to whom the train-llug ot the "public school" and the uni-|,Torslty gives no great value In the i matter of earnlu!; a living. But it ! \vould bo foolLsh to contimd that i�----'---rr=zzz= the Gallery there are not those who have materially benefitted by the same in pursuing tho vocations they have adopted. The national biography of Great Brit-tain points to many ot these. There is one thing about the "college man," though it Is not found In all, and that is his training enables him to sufficiently guage tlie nature atid value of work. We are not referring to the idler who goes through a university course, simply as a social necessity, but to the tnan, of whom there are thousantis, wlio goes to benefit by the opportunities offered. The statement of a Kansas labor expert that the "collegA man" knows how to put his soul Into his work, oven if it were only digging or running a threshing machine, is applicable not only to tho pro duct of the universities of his own land, but applies equally to the earnest students In such institutions In Great Britain. England has realised the importance of training the young on prac tical lines In much the same way we are at present regarding it In the west. Even In its old-established universities new schools and professional chairs have been found lor such practical subjects as engineering, and tho path has been made easy for the working lad to mount from tho national school to the university. It Is altogether unfair on the part of Mr. Hamilton .to father the foibles ot the few on the nation at large. (By H. Hamilton Fyfe, of the London Dally Mqll, Vhq Is travelllris on the Royal Train.) In the hot tittornoon sunshine wo jog comfortably across the prairie, yellow with ripe corn. We have time to notice which is the best crop; to oxchango a wave of the hand with the farmers' men cutting wide swaths with l-horsed "reapera"; to enjoy tho effect of tho plain stretc'alng to the horizon in rich, unbroken fertility. There Is a farmhouse near thcf line. A little group stands among the shocks of wheat, the women fluttering their handkerchiefs, the meii waving their bats. They know that purs Is no ordinary train. They know that' It carries royalty-. The Diike of Con-naught, Governor-General of the great Dominion, is making his first official trip to tho West. This train Is his travelling home for months at a time. It is the home, too, of tho Duchess and of Princess Patricia, of tho Duke's staff, and ot many more. In these ten cars travel 75 souls. For many weeks the Diike was in Eastern Canada and the Jlarltlme Provinces. Not In this -train, though. His own special cars were tho same, but BOW the arrangements are in the hands of the Canadian Pacific, and that great company (or corporation, as they call It here) has created a new record In comfortable travel. I had almost written "luxurious" travel, but that might give a wrong impression. Neither the Duke nor the Duchess cares for lu.xury; they dislike it. Therefore, although-nothing Is lacking to make our journey as pleasant as journeys can be, there Is no ostentation, no glitter, no unnecessary fuss. Lofty Palace Can People who have only travelled in Great Britain or the nearer Continent can form no idea ot what It means to live in a train. They think of our cramped little carriages which are all very well for journeys of a few hours. These lofty palace cars, with their ample space, their lightness and airiness, their square dining rooms and smoking rooms and libraries,, would ama/.e them. Here am I in my own cabin, writing at my table, which lias on either side of it a cushioned settee. In tho daytime It is a capitaf little study. I have my boolcs on shelves, plenty of room,'no risk ot stuffiness, with my domed root fifteen feet high-At night the table disappears. From one settee to the other stretches my bed, wide and downy, In which I sleep soundly and resffully the night long, heedless of shuntlngs, hearing the clang of passing train bells only In happy , dreams. A flap comes down and reveals daiaty washing arrange- OUR POINT OF VIEW In tho Oraugevillo Presbytery ot twelve charges there are nine vaca.n-I cles, Looks us ihoueh church union ' �would come In handy ihuro. Edhionton Is up against it linancial-ly just now. U has secured -a, temporary loan of ono million dollars tor pi.\- months and Is paying thirty tho'is-und dollars interest. Tho importation of abalnlho Into tho United States has been prohibited. That's easy for the consumers. Most ot tiiom spend a greater part of the year getting rid ot their money in Varls. it is tolling the Irish what they should do In every issue. The llieologlcal colleges ot the An glioan. Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian churches In Montreal have united, thus economizing In men and money. Pity tho churches as t whole' would not adopt a similar pol icy. Tho Nationalists want Polletier to quit his job uB Postmaster Geooral. No ono need bo alarmed. As lonp as the .salary Is coming in monthly the P. M. G. will lot tho principles he was elected upon go to the winds!' On tho Horiio Hulo (juestlon the Toronto Tolegfam advises Canadian tptatosmon not to butt in, It Is clear l-Jho Telogi-ani Is not a Btatosmaii foV It is all very well for the Canadian mnnufaoturors to place their fire I'n surnnce with American compa-nies, but it is a crime against the country lor people to buy any American manu fuQtured goods. iMy, aren't those manufacturers loyal-�to their pocW et'i.
