If the graad ehWK muek-rake artist of the Conservative party ciuwot die up any tkiac than this in the of affairs by the Liberal party he had better turn his attention to pwu party.

It is a rare case, where a street railway pays a profit in a city of less' than population. There is lots of time to discuss the merits of muni -that Mackeniie of this'utility and will contest North Waterloo m the Liberal interest.

The council docs not want to run away witli the idea that a streetcar system would be profitable in Leth- bridge just now.

MAKE A DIRECT CHARGE I have not control of the land office. I have not power to get of' time on. home- steads and other favors like that., There are others who can and I believe it is done. It is not fair, of course. OUR POINT Of VIEW The Liberal government did load1 up the civil service and railway commissions with partizans. Prof. Shortt, the leading member of the ci- vil service confmission is a university man and it; is a question if any per- son knows his political belief and the same can. be said of Prof. McLean of the "University of Toronto, one of the new members of the Railwaj' Qommission. If the Calgary newspapers through- out the year have expressed the op- inion of the ratepayers generally that city certainly needs a change in its mayor and aTSermen. The sugges- tion, is made that a business man of ability should be placed in. the ITay- TIIE IRISH; OF IT Saturday Night.) The Minister of Agriculture for the fair Province of Alberta is Irish. It it hardly necessary to label him after reading the following: This sen of Erifl was down at Ma grata, iu the South-western corner of the province, where he was address- ing the fanners. In the course of his he urged upon them tho necessity of following the line of 'rnuxcd and.toM them not to try and all their eggs in one basl et." Then a display of the Emerald" iu these words: "We-must always look FORWARD for something to fall HACK on." In the absence of a mirror it would appear rather paradoxical. Now, 'Pat, would you sooner lose your money or your "Whj me loife, yer reverence; I want me money for me old Inquirer. When the teacher was absent from the school room Jones wrote on the blackboard'. "Willie Jones can hug the girls bet ter than any boy iu school." ".William, did you write ask ed the teacher upon her return ma'ers." "Well, you may stay.after school as punishment."

FRESH OYSTERS tnd SPBINU CHICKENS at watch' the new Bulletin Board for :tUo menu for each meal'" ON TRACK TODAY No, "it is not. fair." It is not fair either for Mr. Magrath. to utter such a statement, and people will be sur- prised! to find these words credited to that gentleman in a speech last week Mr. Magrath boasts of being "fair" but fie not prove his right to claim that characteristic, if he accepts every little bit of gossip as gospel truth and repeats it ser- iously before an audience 01 intelli- gent men. An. inference was made that Mr. Simmons entered the land office-by a side door to secure favors for party favorites. Mr. Simmons explained in a straightforward way the purpose of his visit and it had" no more to do with securing a favor fcr parti- favorites than. Mr. Magrath's en- trance into the sugar at Ray- mond could be construed visit there for the purpose of gutting a man's beets purchased at a. higher price than some other man's. Mr. Stafford, a fair and impartial gentleman, is in charge of the land office and does Mr. Magrath mean to say that he would permit Mr. Sim- mons or anybody else to tell him that Mr. Blank was to be given pre- ference over everybody else in secur- ing a homestead or a preemption? Mr. Stafford is not that sort of an official and Mr. Magrath knows it. Mr. Magrath recently made a de- nial of a charge and asked that it" should be accepted. Mr. Simmons makes a denial and Mr. Magrath per- sists in refusing to accept it and re- peats the statement. Is that fair? Let Mr. Magrath make a definite positive charge. Peddling of gossip degrades a campaign. or's chair. C. W.

If Mr] Magrath thought the Rob- bins-Irrigation deal was perfectly pro per. why didn't he rebuke Mr. Ames for the statements he made on the platform of Lethbridge? "Restoration and restitution is the dual plank in our what Mr. Ames says concerning the alleged alienation of lands and timber in Wes teru Canada. This means that if Mi'. Borden comes to power Medicine Hat will lose its irrigation eutfrprise. Concerning the creameries of Alber- ta. Commissioner Marker says: "We look ior an increase of 20' per cent, over last year in the output of the creameries of Alber- ta. The price of butter per pound will be considerably better than last year, but it is impossible to state just what the average price will be -until all the butter is sold. The whole dairy outl'ook for the province is very encouraging in- deed." If the demonstrations in favor of Sir Wilfrid Laurier at the various Ontario towns he has visited are any criterion, the Liberal party will sweep that stronghold of Toryism I-aurier is the people's premier.

Canadian Order ot Forefters CHARGE FALLS FLAT The attempt of the Conservative press to rake up a minature scandal in connection with the purchase of the Lethbridge jail site has ended as everybody expected. There is no man in public life in Canada today against whom there is less chance to bring a charge of partizanship in public affairs than against Hon. W. H. Gushing. the minister of public works. He transacts public business as he does his own. without any consideration of politics being made. His statement of the deal for the jail site is clear and plain. They bought the land at the same price as adjoining lands were being quoted. The property was fenced and had a house and wells on it. These were worth a good deal extra. The purchase was mndo upon the recommendation of Deputy Min- ister Stocks who of all men in the service at Edmonton is tho least like 5y to allow politics to influence his recommendation. This characteristic of Mr. Stocks is already well known throughout the province. As for ttm insinuation that Mr. Sirr.taons was party to the deal in order to get a rake-off for election expenses, it falls fiat on the face of Mr. Cushing's statement thai the vendors got every cent of the price and that Mr. Sim- mons favored the purchase of a site from the A. R. I. Co. who certain ly would not be guilty of conniving at a plan to give Mr. Simmons a rake-ofT for election expenses. As fcr ..icssvs. Douglus anil Carey, the Her- ald doubts if Mr. Simmons is ac- quainted with either of them and Mr. POOR PROPHETS (Winnipeg Free Press.) In 1900 the Conservatives wouJd not concede a single one of the sev-( c-nteen Western constituencies to the Liberals; yet there was a tidy Liberal majority west of the Lakes. In 1904 Roblin and Rogers boasted weeks be- fore election of the coming They were going to cam- all ten seats in Manitoba and have a majority in the Territories and British Columbia. They succeed ed in carrying only six out of the twenty-seven st-ats. Today we are having the same futile, silly gasconade about sweeping the Grits off the face of the earth and .so forth. No one ia deci-ivcd thereby. It is as certain as anything can be in politics that the West will give a j substantial Liberal majority, and it J is probable that there will bo, n f-rri! majority in overy on..- of tho four! western Province.
