While in Canada certain labor or- ganizations are expressing sympathy with the Russian Soviet, It is well lhat It should he known that real radical labor men from Great llrilaln, who Tlsited Russia as members of a depu- tation chosen by British labor organi- zations, do not return with enthusiasm the Bolshevistic movement. Per- sonal amuainance with the system make them hostile to it. It is better to accept their view tnan that of the long distance agitators of the 0. B. U. and other organizations whose know- v ledge of Bolshevism is that it Is revo- lutionary, and so Ihey are with it. We read in a press despatch from 'Geneva that Mr. Tom described the Soviet system as he had seen it on his recent visit to Russia. Ha said: "There is no proletarian dictatorship in Russia, no freedom, no democracy, "only the autocratic rule of n small group. The workers have no liberty. They must work where directed and at what they.are told." He refused, ing dividends will bo treated to the already 2.50 same way as the mentioned. The statement was well received. When we read .about the improve- ment of conditions in South Africa, a land that twenty years ago was at war with Britain, we cannot help but turn our thoughts to Ireland, and wonder why Ulster and Sinn Fein cau- not compromise on a Dominion form of at least as an experi- ment. It was an experiment iu South Africa, country where .age-ling ra'cial differences existed, and, while at limes it appeared as though Ihe attempt would fail, 'to-day the pros- pect is brighter for a'reat union.

Political conditions have been un- settled in South Africa for several jpars, and at one time it seemed that a Sinn Fein or Republican movement, gaining great strength and might overcome the elements favorable to a British Dominion. General Uotha's death accentuated the fears, as he Lad been a power in holding .'many of the old Doer element in sym- j.pathy.with British connection. While I General. Smuts, who succeeded him as Premier, is a very ablo was I teareB that he lacked the Influence (if j Botha in combatting tho insidious I campaign of tho Republican party. 1 These fears were, it now appears, un Despite the lack of the sect visiting Quebec, with Ihe in- tention" of removing -thera from Man- itoba should the conditions they are anxious, for be made possible In Lhat province. -Premier Taschereau of Quebec gavo the. delegation no assurance that Men- nonite schools would ;be recognized In any way which did not comply with the laws of.the Province. It is quite probable that the Slennonites, In (he view they (ook of the etlucatlonanaws of Quebec, hoped that there they might obtain concessions which have been refused tn Manitoba, and which they'have come to see could not he obtained in the States.

To expect moVa is to expect too much. The Mennonlles of Manitoba, in the proposed going to the Stales, might have hoped for a greater freedom In the matter of their schools than they could get in Canada. In this they have been disappointed, and the les- son should he a falnlnry one.
