It was a jrreat occasiion. Hid Mr. Borden riSe to it? In the piclu'ivsciiie language of Mr. Cocksliutt, "tho ijy*' breaker" of th^ evening, we trow-not.:. For tho Oonsi'rvative leader, the Saturday News has no small measui-o of admiration. lie is a man of integrity, capacity and thor. ough earnestness. In parliament he does credit to the great historic organization of which he is the head. The sijeechos of no member of tho House of Commons make letter ivatl ing in Hansard. Hut he is not a popular orator and it is not in him to sway an audience sucli as that Which assembled to hear him,on Wed ncsday evening. It was restless from tho first and the between the hearing which it gave Mr. Borden and his provincial supporter on this tour Mr. Bergej-on, was very marked. The lattyr, judged by piirel.v intellectual standards, is not in the same class with his part.v chief, but he has at least one very important qualification that Mr. Borden lacks. He has magnetism! - d Quite apart, liowover, from the immediate ct of his addresses on Heivin lies his weakness in this as in other connections. The cannot bo blind to the fact that it is his own |>ersonal ideas, not "tho-se of his party that he is advancing.

Address Liock llox 334, Ljethbridge. '^I'hcO the s|ieak�rs had sometliing to sa.v about poor administ:Mli ..n; we heard a groat deal about tho large incren.sG n oxijenditure. But no ono is likely to Ixs stirred up vi-ry sei'iouslj- b.v Tho country has bc>en expanding at a tremendous lato since 1S96 and it has been Rocoss,ir.v to sijond large sums to keep uri wMh thi� growth. Tho government has, at least, Ijeon able to do this with-oift adding to an.v Inrgn? extent to the national debt. Tho tlefonce made by members of the cabinet sjwechDs against tho'large outlays of il.e old Conservative administration, .Tre now quoted agains'l them is adofiuale. The coubtry didn't have tho money to si)on(l then, but it has now, and the (leoplo are (pute content with the in-ci'ca.sed outlay, so long as it is not being nuxde wa.stefully or corruptly. Wo do not say that it has all been s|x,'nt to gooit advantage and that no individuals have roui>cd an undeaerv-i/d profit from it, there are many items of exix'ndituro -which can bo just ly criticized and which the Opposition has made tho mo-S't of. But the giviat inci-eas.'S have Ixwm for objects that are approved of by tho ordinary election. In the Wiwt, at least, it is tho Go\ermiient's failure to spend money rather than its extravagance that is 11 .snui'ce of complaint. There is no department of its service which couies clo.s-cr homo to tho mass of jNJOpIo than the post otlice, and in Ibis connection it ha.s fallen down most miserably. Tho postail .service throughout WoHtcrii Canada was tor .several years nothing short of a dls-griu'e and is own yisi far from what it should t.)o. While the |)ost-niastor gcnorol was boasting about his surpluses, the people of tho west wore cursing his department day in and day out, Mr, Borden at Ed- in Juno, 190.5.

Tiie.y recogni/e that condition^ are. far from sjvtisfactory at Ottawa, and am prepai-i'd to give their sup|iort to an.v leader who they believe will otTi-ot an improvement. But truth compels us to admit that we can s no pros|�ct of th s through the iiiiniediate return of Mr. Dorden. It is iieces.sary in the first place for him to get a tn-'iter grip on his part.v. For the present it has cea.'Jed to be the national organiza-' tlon that it was under Sir .John JIacdonald. That Mr. Borden is tho man to ever make it so, we are very much disposed to doulvt. If the Conservatives are wi.'^o, the.v should be on the look-out for another Moses. Hut if Mr. Borden .should i>emain iiv the leadership, we are confident that he will have to wait Ijeyond tho no.xt generail olet^tion before he realizes his hopes of attaining to power. , Claresholm Speab.
