Any plant which is put completely out of business through the bursting of one link'of pipe can lay no claim to' efficiency. It should not, be an expensive undertaking to provide an alternative force main at the pumping station, so that, if the main in use is put out of commission, the alternative main would be ready for instant use. It would save a lot of needless criticism and allow thos'd thousands of dollars' worth of property within the tire limits to sleep in peace. The city engineer states that the trouble has trseu remedied temporarily by the, installa- tion of additional valves so that i one main breaks the other may be used.

The Late Sir Richard Cartwright ACRE VT PARLIAMENTARIAN, a link between the davs prior Co Confederation and the pres- ent, one of the ablest, if not the ablest fln-mcni Antics Canada has produced, a debater who did not have an equal; here we have some of the outstand- ing characteristics of the late 'Sir Hichnrd Carcvrright. For half a century he had beeti a. leader in the Liberal party, but to the west he was not well known for Plus al infirmities had prevented him visiting this section of the Dominion the period cf development com- menced. Those of us from the east Mr litchard as one of the wise men. Me was born to public life and silent every year of his manhood iu politics. We have few men. living or dead, of whom that boast can be made. He was a lighter. Liberalism never had a more capable exponent cf its principles than this doughty old knight, nor did Toryism ever face a more fearless or searching critic. Ask George Eulas Poster in confidence to size up Cartwrlght and he would likely a very close friend he 'was the only man he feared In debate. Can yon recall the com- bats that used to'take place between Foster, finance minister of the Mnc- doriald government, and Cartwright. the finance- minister of tbe old Mac- kenzie administration, in the early eighties and nineties? 'it was theii Sir Richard was best known when he riddled 'the Tory budget and made protection look like one of the Span- ish battleships after the engagement at Santiago.' Sir Richard hated protection. He assailed it by word and pen for years. He was of the old Liberal school, be. lieving ia Free. Trade and accepting a! revenue tariff as the nearest ap- proach to it. Sir Richard Camvright's first place in political annals will be as a critic. H was he shone the brightest and it was there he was feared ihe -most. His tongue was like a sword that made many yashes in the opposition, armor. Up to the last, even physical ailments were severe, 'he could wield the old time weapon of criticism in debate with an effectiveness not possessed by any of our younger men prominent in public life. Only a few days ago it was announc- ed that Sir Richard had published a book of "Reminiscences of Public Life .iu Canada." It would have been a calamity to our political history if tha veteran had passed away without hav- ing recorded his reminiscences in this direction. He knew the Dominion iu timalely from its birth. He had sat in every parliament. He had pwords with all the great men of tire Conservative party and had been a comrade of all the Lilwral leaders from Baldwin and Brown down to Mackenzie, Mowat, Blake and Laurier. He had battled against the National policy and assisted iu exposing the Pacillc Scandal. It might almost be said that Cartwright. was on the scene when every great event In Can- adian history was occurring. Thus his reminiscences will be of great value, mid there, will be satisfaction lhat he had seen tbe volume out of the publisher's hands before death claimed him. Rather Awkward (Winnipeg Tribune) The Telegram slips a cog several times every, week in the publication of those comparative grain prices, and it would seem as though the whole machinery .will go "on the hog" these days. Quoting Winui- ueg prices we find that on Aug. 25, the Telegram gave the figures on that date as follows: No. 1 Nor, 105 -No. Nor.................. 103 No. 3 Nor.........'..... Then on Sept. 14 the the prices as: -Vo. 1 Nor...-................... 9f, No. '2 No. 3 Nor.................. 92 A drop of nine cents per-bushel in Isss than two weeks on No. 1 and No 2 Northern, and today the prices Quoted are: No. 1 Nor................. ,j; No. 8 Nor. i..'....." Another drop! A spread, in fact, of 13 cents per bushel, between August 29 and Sept. Has the' Telegram no explanation? What's the matter? The spread between .Minneapolis and Winnipeg is getting around to the apparently normal condition that has existed for years; TJie Telegram will, therefore, soon cease publishing the comparative quotations. It has refrained from publishing the enormous spread that existed all along, and exists .today on the lower grades, the grades representing the vast hull; of the grain in the terminal elevators. What of the future? Me find this'morning the cjuota- tions in the Winnipeg open market as December close. Wed. 85% SOJi-b And in Minneapolis the quotations iu the open market were: .December -May ijtys Here is that the Telegram has overlooked. .Grain millers and farmers, however, do not- overlook it. The campaign for 'freer 'trade' will never cease until our farmers are given the opportunity to sell their wheat where they can fitid a ready market for all grades, and enhanced prices. We predict that the Telegram will cease publishing comparative prices in a few days, at ihe most. it should offer some ex- iknaiion of the drop of 13 cents per bushel.

"He was -in: every sense ;i great parliamentarian, thoroughly versed in constitutioual "procedure and entire- ly familiar 'with the development of imrliariiehtary government ,in Can- ada. 'J recall one' instance which will illustrate the Kindliness of his nature through the passage' of the Speaker's chair, in order to greet his old antagonist."
