It is supporting i ihEt "keep tie navy nut oi poli- tics" petition and denouncing '.he Lib- eral papers who dare to critlcHe it. in face of the fact that ils young sister in Lcthbridse ani! ihe prcs'.isnt oi ihe local Board of Trade declare that the petition is nothing but a scheme 10 boost the Canadian navy policy of Sir Wilfrid Lanner. Why, it would be outrageous to keep the navy out of politics, they claim, in a case like thai. Oi Course, if the petition had favorer! the unborn policy of Mr. Bor- den. the president of tne Board of Trade ''mass to support it. Here K what the Calrcrv Herald says in criticis- ing lhc Calgary A.Tcrtan for opposing Iho petition: A section of the Liberal preiJ, including, of course, the Albertan of this city, seems very much wor- ried over the Uct that there it a movement on foot in Manitoba to lake the navy question out of the political arena. The partisan spir- it In which the Albertan looks at in the Dark the navy question contrasts very unfavorably with the action of D. C. Cameron, lieutenant governor of Manitoba snd n former Liberal candidate in Winnipeg, who was the first to sign IJie petition ask- ing that Canada's naval policy be not made a political football. That seems to be a rap as well to our esteemed morning contemporan from 113 Calgary fellow. The Calgar Herald had better watch out or will be taken lo task by Hon. P.ober Rogers, through his chief Alberta re- for being so blind as not to -K that' the petition It. supports was a dark Grit scheme.
