The Millionaire Cabinet R. L. 13ORDEX now has a splen- did opportunity to reward the millionaires who sleeted him and hia party, to office. Never before has a. Canadian political lead- er had such-unique.experience, hav- ing bad practically every millionaire !n tha country at his hack. He has among his supporters in Parliament nearly enough men who are rated up In seven figures ;tO form a govern- ment, and there are enough more clamoring for recognition to compl-ete what would be unique in the history of any millionaire cabinet. Of course, Mr. Bord-an would re- main as -the nominal liend, though not classed as a man of millions. But he could make E. B. Osier, the millionaire C. P. II. director, his min- ister of finance; A. K. fvsmp, the mil- lionaire manufacturer, his minister of trade and commerce; ..L A. At.; Alkin-j, the millionaire lawyer, his minister of justice; H. B. Ames, ihe million- aire manufacturer, hiy poKtmaster- general; H. Cockshutt, the millionaire manufacturer, his minister of labor; G. H.

H. .Booth, the millionaire lumbermen, to fill any vacancies that might occur. men would make a unique cabinet, and they might as well be in the government, for they will dom- inate the councils of the party any- way. Border's Western Programme TIE CHANGE of government is going to make-political affairs very saysHhe Man- itoba Free Press, The general lines of the Laurier government's policy fairly well known to the public; and had the result of tJfts general not been such as io bring about the political revolution thai must now he looked forward to, there would not, in all probability, have been anything in th-e course of.public affairs, apart from the coining into operation of the reciprocity agreement, to arouse end excite public attention. Jt will be different with the new regime. Mr. Harden, as Prim-e .Minis- t-er, will find himself and his govern- ment and his majority In Parliament, confronted with the duty pf redeem- Jng a number 'of iipecific pledges. Three of these pledges, .which are of in I interest .'-tO; the people of Canada, iriay bo-mentioned Acre: The operation 9? terminal elo- u'ufcrtaking. The endowment of ihe chilled meat Industry; and The construction ami operation of the Hudson's Hay Jtailway as a gov- ernment undertaking. TO three things, every one of which will .be very acceptable to tbq people of Western Canada, Mr. Bor- deh, as lender of the Conservatives, stands pledged Irretrievably; and the people of the West, to whom he has thus pledged himself, will look to him to show himself passaged of the resolute determination that will he i-equiBlte on his part'to the redeem- ing oMhesc pledges.

It raems possible that England maj now begin to have more understand- ing and sympathy for the United States in at least one direction, since ilia problem" has assumed sucli a complicated aspect In South Africa. This ie a matter which goes that the mere racial prejudice with which every colonizing and trading nation has had to contend. It is more difficult; the solution cannot yet fca gu'essed at. The question of unifying the Bars of South Africa..brought the matter up. The Society of-Advocates attempted draft a constitution, and split on tho question of whether [rer- aons not, of wjiite blood should he admitted. The Boers, from the first, realizing that, numerically they were at a disadvantage vf'ith the blacks in South perceived th-e wisdom of being morally and legally superior, and drew the line hard and fast from ihe beginning. They have "never rfr from that position, and this year General Hertzog declared firmly that "the policy, of drift must be stopped, and the position of the white and the black defined once for all." It seems unreasonabl'3 to debar a man from any line of work or intel- lectual opportunity, merely because of worst members of any community to glv-e a name for lawlessness and vio- lence to all their countrymen. That is the kind of thing which aggravates instead of settling the color problem. Firmness and justice must be dealt oiit-to the blacks. But although a social barrier must be erected, it does not appear that any such comse need be followed in commerce or the professions. Tlvay should be common ground.
