The Political Situation
Hy R.  W. Thompson
ln the Muy number of Maclean's Magazine,
The writer of tins article is one of the best Informed writers on Canadian politics. Many of us ought not agree with his deductions hut they
represent views of a very Important section of the men in public life and
students of politics. Mr. Thomson was on The Globe editorial staff many
years ago but left at the time that paper advocated unrestricted reciprocity with the United States. He was opposed to it, taking the side ol tbe
late Hon. Rdwnrd Blake, He made a strong tight in (avor of the recent
agreement with tiie United States, It is questionable whether a general
election will be held as soon as he prophesies because the census will not
be completed foi a long time yet, but it is moro than likely that the pres
ent Parliament will go to the country belore its term is completed.
To understand the Ottawa situation one must keep steadily in mind
that the present Parliament is necessarily shortlived. Ministry, Opposition, members all alike assembled in
that consciousness, and have been
ruled by it ever since. The reason
why this twelfth Parliament must be
shortlived is that it does not represent Canada of the census of last
June, but represents the Dominion of
a census now nearly eleven years past
AU eastern provinces, including Ontario, are slightly over-represeuted.
The West lacks more than twenty of
its due number or M.P.'S.
This would not necessarily make
the Parliament very short-lived if the
West were in substantial agreement
with the Enst, or rather with Ontario, whose ovcr-whelmlng vote In the
late elections put the collective Kast
against the West on the paramount
question of reciprocity in natural pro
ducts with the states. Outside ot Ontario the collective Rnst agreed with
the West on that business.
It is conceivable, though improbable, that the West, if represented according to the last census, might a-
gree with Ontario's vote. It is also
conceivable thnt Ontario, at the election after general distribution of representation, may reverse or largely
modify her vote of last September.
Conservatives differ from Liberals in
prognosticating on that. The sure
thing is that a vigorous element in
the West regards tbnt region as fnr
less tban duly represented; feels Ontario to be much over-represented,
and feels wrongly inasmuch as opinion adverse to tbe West has undue
control of public policy.
This situation is bad all round, li
is dangerous. It provokes embitter
meat, and therefore agitation in the
West. It is not fair to Ontario, Sure
ly ber people, collectively, desire no
more than tbeir due of representation
The wiser of them must know that
serious harm to the trade of their
province might and probably would
come if it were maintained by the
Ministry any longer than is necessary
In a domineering position.
lt Is not to be supposed that Mr.
Borden and bis colleagues wish to
prolong the unrepresentative Parliament. They appear to he reasonable,
prudent,   honorable men.   They know
that their tlU« of ofllce after next
yenr will be Hawed lf the present Par
liament continue. They know that
public opinion would credit them
with fenr of the electorate if they
appeared anxious to stave off a Redistribution Act, or the general election subsequent thereto.
Because census returns germane to
Redistribution are still incomplete,
because they will need much consideration before a just Redistribution
can be based on them, and because
any Redistribution Bill must provoke
long debate, it would have been unfair to expect any Ministry to deal
with that matter in tbeir ilrst session
That they mean to tackle it in their
second and then go to tbe country
appears plain from the cnutlon of
some of their proceedings, and from
the evident design of others to win
popularity. To secure a ministerial
existence more prolonged than that
of the short-lived Parliament has
been Premier Borden's steady
On that thought he composed his
Cabinet. It has been called a Coalition Cabinet—as if there were something essentially wrong in Cabinet
union of representative assailants of
the previous Ministry. His chosen
colleagues had been united not only
by their common opposition to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, but by a common
prejudice ln favor of "protection",
and largely by a common hostiMty
to the Flelding-Knox reciprocity proposal. Within my memory every Cab
inet since Confederation hns been
chosen similarly, from all the important factions of the winning crowd.
What truly distinguished Mr. Borden's selection was not that he gave
portfolios to both sets of his extremists, but that he gave both sets so
many portfolios. When his Orange
friends and his "Bleu-Natlonaliate"
allies had been supplied, there were
tew departments left for his Moderates. He thus went precisely contra
to the Laurier method of Cabinet-
making. Hence mnny able jog-trot
Conservatives, wbo had drugged the
Opposition vehicle over a dark, long
road, got no oats. Why did these
deserving men submit to exclusion in
favor of what looks like a Cabinet of
irreconcilable*? Because they bore in

At 2 p.m. on Friday, the Fire Brigade responded to an alarm sent in
from .the Power House. Upon the arrival of the Brigade it was found
that a house partially completed,was
in danger from a brush tiie, in fact,
the house was scorched and smoking.

No loss was sustained, willing
hands had removed the furniture, tbe

It Is against, the law to set fires at
this time of the year, nnd we learn

Britain's Aerial Navy

To the resourcefulness of the British

keen ofllcers who recently showed how

To kill two blrclB with one stone h)
doing tiwi.y with the smoke o( cltlee
and coal-mining nt one time  is the
somewhat   star tl tug   proposal of Sir
William Ramsay, tbe eminent English

titbit   ■ Loudoi    recently, he re
irk   I thet thi    bject    I the Smoke

simplified if no coal were burned, and
j he pointed out tlmt the ideal state o!
things would be t   have a gas-retort
In the howels of the earth    As quot-
[ed in The Illustrated London News ol
March 30. he went on
"Thero is absolutely nothing, so
[ar as I can see, to prevent a borehole from being put down until tb-
coal-stratus is readied, aud concentric tubes helm* used to set the coal
on tire (by electricity) and to blow
air down to enable the coal to burn
i as a preliminary operation. When
. sufficient heat has been engendered
j the amount of air Sent down might
I be restricted. Coal with plenty of air
elves ofl carbon dtoxid, CO,. When
I hnlf-burned it given CO, or what le
| railed Dowson's gas, which is used
for gas-engines. If steam were blown
In it would give a mixture of hydro*
iren-and carbonic oxide, or water-gas,
whirl, also Ik frequently used for gus
engines. Bring your gas engines to
the mouth ol your pit or bore-hole
nnd produce your power there. You
wuuld thus have Ml per cent, of the
energy of the coal available ns n-
galnst lfi per rent, available in fuel-
engines. Thut energy might bo trans
formed into electricity nt the mouth
of the bore-hole, and you could distribute it through the country—where
ever vou liked. There is nothing new
in this. Electricity has been carried
200 miles in California. 1 myself
have seen It carried xn miles in Mysore In India. In this way you would
get electricity available for lighting
and heating (including domestic heal
ingi. your railways would be worked
by electricity, and only fuel would be
oil for ships."
lt has been reported still more recently in the daily press that a mine-
owner in Knglaiid has offered Hir j
William the use of some coal strata
to experiment with, and that his plan j
is to be tiled out shortly. The Lon
don correspondent of the New York
Times, lu a despatch dated March 28
quotes bun .is saying:
"I    firmly    believe    that    somethliur
will be dune in the way of not rats
intr conl, but letting il remain underground, burning it there, and taking
j* ] off the gases, I have been in rom-
x ' mun ten tlon with n largo colliery pro-
•j- ! prietor, and he is going to give me a
T 'chance of making nn experiment on n
T ' very small scale If this succeeds, n
J> i candle mny be lighted In England
which will not be extinguished in our
time "
At least one noted tnventer, bow-
eve i, is not en thus Ins tic about the
scheme In an interview given to a
reporter of the Sun, Nikola Teslu Is
: quoted as saying
"The [den is ingenious, and not nt
all unrntlonal. but on careful compu*

■ 'Well, you -■>-■ uvei yhndj, In the
. si few yi are, has been using the
urord  "absolute"   In connection   with
the   work   turned   nltl   oil   tbelr   macll

!,, tbo biws, "You oughl to plane
■hose plates on one of our machines,

and 1 heard the old man tell him a
llttli  experience,
" 'Young   man."   he   said,   "1   want

his mills absolutely true, and another
that his pulleys and Bhaftlngs run absolutely tru". for so long that 1 got
the disease and agreed to build a uuw
hlne for thai fellow down by the railroad-track who ham mors saws and
does blacks in Ithine, that would grind
aaws absolutely true on their sides.
Now 1 will tell yon what happened to
me because I did not know what the
word "absolute" meant. After I had
built the machine and sent it down,
and thought 1 had given him time
enough to pay for it, I decided tn
°all around for the money. Now, 1
'lad seen some of the work turned on
it and had a letter from a man who
had seen it wanting me to build one

'As I entered and stated my reason for calling, ho asked me to look
it some of the snws which wero
.'round on this machine. He reached
up on a shelf and got a nice new
straight-edge, and suspended a saw
by n string hooked over the teeth
^nd then held the Btrulght-edge u-
iftinst it. With the other hand be
ihoved the 0,004-Inch blade of a feeler
through, between the straight-edge
md the saw. Then without saying
•mother word, he got my contract
ind pointed to the clause in which 1
agreed to produce a machine which
would grind absolutely true. I requested him to put a saw in the mac
bine and let me adjust it, nnd I pro*
ceded to grind n saw. When 1 had
it finished and I he saw tallied with
the straight-edge, 1 culled him over.
He looked ut it, and then got a surface-plate about ten inches square,
ind thinly covered it with lampblack
and rubbed it Ivor the surface just
ground. I'pon removing It, he Informed me that the machine must
grind absolutely true before he paid
the hill.
"Then it dawned upon me thut 1

ng that really meant another. 1
lOlild not convince him ol the injustice of bis demands, and we wont to
law. My attorney could mako no lm-
ression upon the court,which simply
stated that I had agreed to build a
machine to tlv ten miles, the simple
fact that it. was impossible to do so
lid not entitle mc to receive pay for
a machine that would nearly fly. The
ibove incident took place twenty
•ears ago. We have since accomplish
ed whut then was considered an Impossible thing, viz,, the flying machine, but are practically as far from
producing machinery that does work
absolutely true as we were then. The
only sntlsfnctlon which I got was
thnt tho machine wus returned to me
1 soon disposed of it, hut the lesson
it taught mo t shall never forgot."

a ghastly thought- How strange tbat
we should ever have been misled into
ao unseriptural and unreasonable a
theory! Some endeuv-r to gloss the
mutter by suggesting that our Lord's
flesh is glorified—tbat it shines—the
*h in iug presumably making the
wounds all the more conspicuous.
Our Methodist friends have not yet
changed their statement ol the matter, namely, "He ascended up ou
high, taking His fleshly body with
Him, and all that appertained thereto,
and sat down on the right hand of
God." This medieval statement correctly admits thnt the fleshly body
was not the Lord's, but that He, the
soul, took it with Him as luggage.
The statement, "and ull that appertained thereto." presumably would
refer to our Lord's sandals, walking
slick and such clothing as the soldiers
did not divide amongst them at the
time of His crucifixion—if indeed He
had any others! But our dear Methodist friends want to be sure thut
nothing was left behind.
All Ibis is of a piece with the theory
that the saints when they die go to
he-ivcu, and then, later, come back
and get their bodies,'"and nil things
appertaining thereto"-1-the inconveniences I hut they have beeu rid of for
centuries,! How many truukload.
"things   appertaining* thereto"
a spirit state "far above angels"—be
made "partakers of the divine nature. "—IT. Peter i, 4.
On the contrary, the very same
Apostle who tells us of our Lord's
humiliation carries the matter to tbe
climax, telling us of His faithfulness,
as the Man Christ .lesus, unto death,
even the deat!) of the cross; and then
he adds an assurance of the heavenly Father's faithfulness in not leaving
His Son on a lower plane: "Wherefore," says the Apostle. "God also
highly exalted Him, an', hath given
Him u name above every name."
This, too. Is in harmony wilh nur
Lord's words in His prayer to the j
Father. A joy had been set before j
Him by the Father—a joy of pleasing
the Father, of bringing a blessing to
mankind, uud the joy also of exalta-
tlon, as a special re wan* for bb;dl-!
Rut the Redeemer, ignoring all tho
promises of a higher glory as a reward for His faithfulness, merely
prayed to the Father iu these words.
"Father, glorify Thou Me with Ihe
glory which I had with Thee before
the world wits." ln humility He ask-
ed no reward. H* did not pray, He-
member that you promised a still
greater exultation iir glory! No, He
would he quite content to have

Strange to my, the beginnings n!
military dress or uniform may ba
saiil to date from soon after the fhI 1
of tha peculiarly military system of
feudalism in the middle of the Fifteenth Century. After the repeated
\ictories of tho Swiss footmen ovor

more active in our town just now
than it has been in years, nnd there's
a reason. The town has been well ad

when there is almost a certainty that
within S or 6 years it will be worth
twice the present value. Advertising

staving off further agitation on tho

further justified. The subject is not

by mnny Liberals, to havo turned in
If some enthusiasts thought it pool-
party tactics for the Premier to stave
off announcement of a "Navy" programme till near or after the general
elections, it was surely good public
policy to thus delay. Tbe people
have never heen instructed and advised in tbat business, except by politicians eager to make party capital
out of it, or amateur admirals of the
newspaper and other presses. Probably these worthleB have not yet
convinced a majority of the electorate that It would be improper to
postpone n "Navy" programme forever. To allege need for a "Navy"
Is to beg the main question at issue.
That Canada should provide amply
for the defence of her shores seems
agreed upon by nearly everybody. It
was the original Conservative proposition from Mr. Q. K. Foster. On
that, the politicians were as one man
a few years ago. They argued that
such defence would be not only the
Dominion's security, but the best way
of relieving and aiding Cireat Britain.
Eminent Old Country experts have
certified the same thing. Probably
there are not a thousand people in
the Dominion who do not Bincorely
wish Canada to be made capable of
giving Great Britain the utmost aid
tbnt can be practicably supplied.
, There are various schemes for supply
Ing it.
Tbat recommended In 1896 by the
Imperial Defence Committee ot England does not imply a "Navy" tor
Canada. It implies only ndequate
coast defence armament. Perhaps it
Is true that creation of the Gorman
and otber navies since that ti e indicates that Canada should have battleships, cruisers, what not, in adhlt-
ion to a coast defence, or even before
establishing this. But there hns been
no clear Information from competent
authorities to that cllcct. To get
sound, ample information and publish
It would seem the correct policy for
Mr. Borden.
A Commission on which level headed Canadian civilians should sit with
experts of Navy and Army would be
very much in ordor. There is nothing
mysterious, nothing incomprehensible
to the mind of any good engineer,
lawyer, merchant, mechnnic or farmer
in problems of defence. Such matters
are merely outside their usual line of
nttention. If Borne intelligent men
of civil occupations were Bet to study
tbe problems ns viewed by experts,
those civilians could best decide between experts, as they do frequently
In other or, indeed, in all grave public matters.
Canadians want to know what is
needed to make their Atlantic and
Pnclftc cities, mines and settlements

will such security cost? What should

means, what more cnn we do for the
Old Country. What will that, too,

probnbly be found that there Is really no marked difference of opinion
among Canadians on the matter.

Tbe commission might hnve
less harmful than Liberals feared
since it was to be largely directed by
the new minister of Finance, Mr.
White, who appears less protectionist than reasonable. However, the
measure for its creation was killed by
the Senate tn the dying hours ot tbe
session, and thus the situation remains.
Mr. Borden and his colleagues had
long proclaimed the late Ministry cor
rupt in administration. They were
thus bound to try to prove [t. Success in the attempt would furnish
them with effective ammunition for
the next general election. Therefore
they pushed through an Act providing
Commission for what the )pp.,si-
tlon call an "Inquisition" on tbelr
pnBt. At first the Ministry seemed
indisposed to make just provision for
defence by any officials or ministers
who may be accused. This .ppears
to have been made alright, portly
through the intervention of the Hen-
ate, a useful chamber, far too much
derided and villilied by jokers.
Surely the public, of both parties,
feel that the more and the closer the
Commission shall investlgnte ihe better. I remember well the general disappointment that came of the Mackenzie CBbinet's fnilure to have the
lirst Pacific Scandal thoroughly inched, and the truly guilty, if my, pursued to genuine punishment. Similar
ly the Laurier Cabinet tailed of carry
lag out pre-election pledges to root
into the whole body ot transactions
alleged corrupt, relating to the building of the C.P.R. Such investigation
at thnt time might hnve enabled the
accused to clear themselves, which
would have been no leBS UBeful to the
public than their conviction, in enso
they could not vindicate their proceedings, lf Premier Borden's Cora-
mission explore thoroughly—especially into manifold nppnlling accusntlon
nnd imputations long mnde daily a-
galnst Mr. Clifford Sifton's administration of the Interior Department—
surely the electorate will approve.
We are, however, told .that gross
charges made against Mr. Frank Oliver, during tbe Inte election, are not
to be investigated. That may signify that the Ministry now know thnt
those chnrges were false. Or it may
mean that magnates, said to be in
volved in tbe nffnir, and regarded as
very powerful with the ministry, havo
Intervened. It would be ridiculous,
and damaging to the Cabinet, If tbe
new Inquisition went about burning
Httle, obscure officials, while letting
Messrs. Slfton and Oliver grow hnlos
of virtual acquittal. Both may be
perfectly guiltless and both are entitled to the justice ot being called
on to prove that they were maligned,
which they certainly could prove In
many matters.
Again, in view of an early general
election, the Ministry pushed an Act
enabling them to promote highways
for horsed vehicles and autocars in
every part of Canada. Good roods
are much needed. They will be con-
penlent and valuable, lf provided.
Prima facie, the Ministry is entor-
prlsing nnd well-intentioned in tbe
matter, lt ia easy to contend tbat
the federal money Intended for highways should be granted to the provinces. It is just as easy to contend
thnt the proposed extension of federal
authority will strengthen the Confederation's bonds, which have been
weakened through abandonment of
the disallowance nnd remedial powers
by successive Ottawa administrations
Probably the people do not care a
hang about constitutional arguments!
in the business—they want roads.Fed-:
eral taxation imperceptibly tends to!
keep them nnd their roads poor.
Hence municipalities cannot afford,
the highways they wore meant to pro
Vide. The new program will roHtore
to them equlvllentB 'or part of what
customs and excise taxes take slyly
out of tbeir purses. However, this
contentious measure might have heen I
postponed till after the next elections
but for one" thing. It ls likely to
yield a lot ot party cupttal to tbe Ins
by Influencing voters and municipal!
ties in every province.
It was nccessnry tn add most of
Keewatin to Manitoba. On that
everybody agreed. Development and
administration In the added territory
nre required by Increasing Immigration. Manitoba would not take tho
addition encumbered liy n new provision lor Separate Schools therein.
That right seems logally or constltu-
'tonally ns well secured by the, Manitoba Act of IS70 as It could ho hy
any cause proposed tor tbe now men
sure. All eminent lawyers In both
parties concurred In view. Thoy put
It "up to" Mnnltoha to forsake her]
unconstitutional refusal to reeutnb
llsh mich schools. If the Rohlin Government "make good" they will do,
much tor pence between the creeds
throughout Canada.
As for the handsome pecuniary
terms   grnnted    by    Manitoba—Uwr
Saskatchewan has a fine promise; all
the   other   provinces  are   told   that
something good all round is designed.
Great electioneering, indeed.
But can tbe ministry win thos..
elections? If not, their defeat won't
be due to nny Inck of enterprise, In
genulty, Intellectual force, or nerve.
InBtead of loafing through their first
Besslon, on the plea that they were
new to the Job, the Ministry have
done much work, Including passage oi
the Act touching elevators, which Is
mainly what the Laurier Ministry
propoBed. It remains to be seen that
the commission under that Act will
fail, as western grain-growers fear,
to get tho farmers better supplied
with cars than they were under tho
old Act. Election prospects of the
Ministry ln the WeBt would be worB
ened did the Commission husten to
trucle to railways and elevator companies. Hence, it is reasonable to
suppose that tbe farmers will be better treated, at leaBt for the next IK
months or so, than they apprehend.
To me it seems that the Issue of
that early election on whlcb the Premier's eye is fixed must depend oa
what Washington shall do wltb tho
Act for implementing the Fielding-
Knoi reciprocity pact. If Washington repeal tbat Act, then Mr. Borben
Ministry will profit or suffer only in-
as- much as he may he applauded or
blamed for final disappearance of
hope for reciprocity In natural products, which reciprocity he could secure this session, if he wishes so.
If the Washington Act be not repealed
before our not distant Canadian elections, then the Liberal party not only
can fight the battle of the "pact-
over again, but will he compelled by
circumstances to do so. They could
not get away from the charge ol
meaning to accept the "pact" if victorious. Hence they would have to I
put up a strong fight for it.
With what result? If any reason j
able man can look at conditions 111!
the west; can suffer the loss, suffering ]
and anger there due to defeat of the
"pact": can reflect on how tbe industries of the East depend on Western
contentment and prosperity; and political danger which arise from tho
West's bitter disappointment and
can still imagine thnt the Fielding
Knox agreement would be again beaten in Cnnadn, nr even in Ontario,
then that reasonable man would
think me very unreasonable did 1
venture to specify my opinion in tho
case. If I conceal it, please credit mo
dear reader, with the caution proper

White Worn for Part of the Ceremony, But for a Strange Reason.
Brides In Japan follow the same
custom whlei. prevails in the "Western

whlla tho sash, an important lV.it in >,
measures about 11 feet in length.
But white, as the Oriental Ilev'mv
explains, is lho mourning color in
Japan, and the bride, leaving her

in the sense that she will never return alive, preferring death to divorce, and in consequence weariui", a

Arter the exchange of cups of
