Trains The Nationalists Recognized MONK, NANTEL, and Pelletier, three of the members of Uor- den's new Cabinet, committed themselves to Bourassn's Nationalist movement. Monk was oms of his chief lieutenants. Evidently Mr. Borden is under obligation to the Nationalists, or he would not have honored them so, especially when he does not owe power to them. Did Ire make a deal beforehand? It looks as tho.ugh he had, and even in the face of the de- .claration of Ontario, he can't get out of it. Quebec is entitled to Cabinet representation, but, surely Mr. Bor- den "could have found a few French Tories for portfolios who were not tied to Bourassa, if Ire had desired A pre-election promise evidently pre wsted him doing so. And then see the departments se cured: Honk is given really the big srest spending department of the gov- ernment ,that of Public Works; and Peli'Otier is made Postmaster-General The Nationalists, seemingly, have a hand over Borden, and the new Premier wants to watch out for pit- falls ahead. Laurie: for a United Canljda and British connection: tire National- ists don't siauf. for either, and yet iorden boo ;ts them to the front in his aduiinsitraUon. THE TRACING of the recent bur- glary in the city to a number of boys, calls attention to a state of things which ought not to be allowed to exist. There ura many movements in HIM city, such as Sun- day schools, Boy Scouts, the advan- tages offered by the V. M.' C. A., are for the well-directing of the young, but, somehow or other, th'ase do not appear to reach with their influences this particular class of juvenile. "Possibly the ones thai have more need pf guidance. No doubt the home" influences are not strong eoongh ,nor are they of a na- ture to deter these culprits from the malpractices they have resort to. In that case public, influences ought to be brought to bear. Blame has been laid on the exhi- bition of moving pictures giving pro- minence to the actions of desperad- oes, etc. It has been argued that the youthful mind is apt to endeavor to emulate the examples set before H. If this is agreed, the sooner a Juvenile Depravity [c-ansorship is .set over these pictures the better. But the evil does not rest entirely with this class of show; there is as much to be gathered from the reading of cheap blood and thun- der But above a_ll the par- ents of these .boys should be brought to realize that they have a responsi- bility over their children, one they should not try to escape by foisting it ou the should'ers of others. The tru- ancy law should be strictly enforced. The suggestion made some time back by the. Chief of Police that the boys who sell journals on the strejts should be compelled to wear badges showing that they are licensed to do so, should be put into effect. This will-be of considerable use, as it -will be the means'of letting police tof fleers know -that'tire boys have the consent of their parents in so doing. It will make the calling a legitimate one, instead'of being an excuse for truan- cy, and for wandering on the streets. That there Is work on hand for the reclamation of sonre of the youth of our city is quite evident. The Female in Politics 'TWERE ARE signs apparent that J_ Canada is about to -be afflicted by the suffragette movement. We use the word "afflicted" deserved- ry, from noting the experiences of the agitation in the old world. That the tactics pursued in Eng- land may be adopted here we have reason to apprehend from th'a an- nouncement that the redoubtable Mrs. 1'ankh.urst is arriving to carry on her crusade. The movement uiW possi- be a militant one, and for, that reason alone is to be deprecated. We have no d-esire to have the scenes en- acted in the British House of Com- mons at Westminster, repeated nt Ot- tawa. course pursued .by the fe- male, would-be politicians has been Euch ay to alienate the sympathy of all right-thinking women. It tends to remove that atmosphere- of respect for the sex which is conceded by all men. The preservation of this spirit and attitude towards them should he more Importance to women that the bargaining for the sanve equal rights with men. The fight so far waged is by'a small class of women, it cannot 'be 'said that it finds favor with afl. This minority has a suffi- cient faith in its cause to keep it very much "alive, though the fruition of its wishes does not seem at pro- sent within approachable distance. That the women of the present day show a greater interest in politics is evident. This is and should be encouraged. We cannot help thinking that it would be far bet- ter for the sex to allow this interest to be a quiescent, rather than an ac- tive, one. Sympathy with, instead of the independent- assumption of, views appears to be more in keeping with tile which Nature intended wo- man should, play. Some may think that this idea is more or tett poetical, and lliat it means the relegation of woman to a secondary plane. This. Is far from the case; it is practically exalling her sphere in that her sym- pathies are respected, and thereby her influence acknowledged. This is a better way for its ex- pression than the cr.uder methods advocated by the modern suffragette. A Benefit Proclaimed RECIPROCITY Is, by no means, the dead issue which the Tory journals assume. It has only received a temporary set-back. Great reforms, and we class reciprocity aa one, will never dte. They may ,be temporarily shelved, -hut are 'bo.und to come Into being iiooner or later. To take a parallel from the politics of the Old Country, we may point to the .of Home Hule for Ireland. This received a- quietus Vheri.the gov- ernment of Mr. Gladstone suffered d'aleat fit the polla. Nevertheless, the question has always been a particular ly live one. It hmj come up as" an Is- at every election, and now, to judge from the trend of opinion in the British House of.. more than likely to take practical ef- fect. So with reciprocity. As long as there. Is a body of men sent to rarllamnnt with: a niudale from their constituents, reciprocity win remain a plank In the Liberal platform. So long'as the opposition at Otta- wa Is an effective one, the question which they primarily represent .will lot lie allowed to remain in oblivion. Already the advantages of reci- procity are becoming apparent in the mailer of- stock feeding. Without any special legislation, it would have giv- en {lie .-farmers hcra an opportunity of earning money by bringing over tattle from across the line for feed- ing The country is par- ticularly rich In- feed at the present llm-s. Mr. nennotf'3 argument of tlio two..contrasted pastures now holds good, but -not Jn the way In; meant It. This' it only 'one of tho first signs. AV time goes "on the 'advantages of the pact win become more and more apparent. The country will have re- covered from the wave -of hysteria bolstered up by lite Interests ,ind to whom a policy of high tariffs Is a ne- cessity of being.

Not the "Same old Bunch" 0' PPONENTS of the Sifton. Qov- eruiuent find a great scuiclty of arguments to put before tho people In order to persuade them to join the mnlis of tho opposition, in tho present bye-olcctlons. One of their slock cries, it cannot be called an argument Is that "the present Gov- ernment Is just tho same old bunch Ihat was turned out" oil the Alberta and Great Waterways matter. It is ti-uo that the Liberal .puny was In power when the Hulherford Govern- ment negotiated tho Waterways deal h'ir. it tv.ji'ully true that the Liberal party as a party cither in or out of [he House knew nothing of the deal until the revelation of its details was made. Then the party refus'-Hl to agree to It aud 'the Liberal party, not the Conservative party, turned the Government out and repudiated and ancelled the agreement with the A. and G. W. Company. On other matters of policy and nd- minlEtrnttou the party stands tho same umler Sifton :is it dill under Htl- therford. ami the, Rutherford" Govern- ment on its general administration received the overwhelming approval of the electors of the province a little over two years ago. Premier Sifton and hie cabinet are not "the Kime old bunch" that nego- tiated the A. G. W. deal. The only mitilBter who was In both administra- tions entered the.old -Government af- ter the deal had been made and had nothing to I j with it. Premier Slftou'a government stands diametrically op- posed to the policy of its predecessor on tho only feature of. policy of admin- istration-thai has been criticized by the people. Ills policy of cancelling the agreement lind forming n better one with a responsible company is in accordance with the will of the peo- ple as was abundantly shown in the bye-elections following 'the formation of the new government. Since that time the Government has been carrying on the affairs of the province in a satisfactory manner that should receive the commendation of that portion of the electorate that Is called upon to vote oh October 31. The electors of Lethbrldge by voting for S. J. Shepherd will show, their ap- proval of the cancellation of the 'A. G. W. deal und'of the administration" of the Siftou Government -jiuce it took office under such unfavorable clrcuui; stances. OUR POINT OF VIEW Tlw; new Cabinet will do, thank you Biido, Sir James Whitney and Sir not very long. Charles Hlbbert 'Tupper enter It? Shepherd is u supporter of the Gov- ernment that has supported Leth- bridge in every way it could. Sam Hughes must nave held a Ross rifle at Borden's head, in order to force his way into the Cabinet. 'Machine politics of the worst type I'u'x'gn'ized In the etevntion to the Cabinet or "Bob1 'Rogers. Will the Toronto .Telegram kindly point out the .friend of public rights in the new government. Foster, of the "nest of traitors" -ap. sode, was not passed by. That will j-a cheering news for Sir Mackenzie Bowell. No government has ever treated Lethbridge better th'an the Sifton Gov- ernment. Jt is up to Lethbridge to support the government that has giv- en H. and every other constituency a square deal. Vote for Shepherd and a continuation of Sifton square denls. There would be no political advan- tage in electing an opponent of the Sifton Government as Premier Sifton will have a good majority even if all the bye-elections went against, him. And from a practical standpoint, the city could gain nothing by electing aii j opponent to the Government. Then why change? Shepherd does not ask for support ill account of what, the Sifton Gov- erument will do, but -because of what t has done.

Evidently those Turkish dignitaries vho have asked Mr, .Taft to serve as mediator in the Turco-Italian dispute .eglected to look up his record, as me- iator in the dispute between Repub- ican regulars and insurgents, Hon.

One Man Government Algerian The critics of the Sifton adminis- tration are reduced to the extreme to find objections to the government candidates in the present elecrtions One, of the serious grounds for com- plaint, according to. the Opposition spseches, is that, the Sifton.adminis- tration is a one man 'government. They hardly go so far as to say that the one man government's policy or performance is open ,to criticism, but consider the argument complete when they stop at the charge. The Sir Jolvn Macdonald govern- ment in its palmiest dsys was describ- ed as a one man government. The Laurier government was always de- scribed as a one man government. The'Whitney government is often re- ferred to in tb-e same terms It real ly nveans that the premier is tne lead- er of the party, a strong man, an We must have (space for our new Fall Goods, so now is Your Opportunity to buy DOLLS AND 10 YS AT p.c.
