A new name for Graft
Winnipeg Telegram: "Provender"
is excellent. This euphonious term
is the invention of the Free Press as
a BUbstitute for the coarser if better
understood word, "Graft." It means
just the same thing, hut the organ
which is not an organ thinks It less
((tensive.
Thus when substituting au inferior
brand of bacon foi the soldiers at
Halifax, tbe contractor wns able to
clear up an additional $6,000 over
und above his legitimate profit, he
bad just so much '' provender''
ahead.
The difference between the $601
which Judge Cassels figured as the
reasonable selling price of a diaphone
and the $4.mii the government paid
for this article in large Quantities,
was just provender, -a very sustain
ing and satisfactory form of proven
tier, too, ttt the kind one gets from
the bank In exchange for a govern
ment  cheque.
The $122,000 that figured as profit
on the sale of the St.. Boniface terminals hy Cousin Stearns to Cousin
Charley Young, was likewise pro.
cutler, which apparently is dealt out
by the government lu wholesale ns
well as retail (pinntltles.
When Sir Daniel McMillan and
Brother inlaw Burrows divided up
that $80,000 profit on the Imperial
Pulp compuny timher deal, they
wore just enjoying provender. Tbe
feeling of satisfaction must be the
same as one experiences nfter par
taking  of a    delightful   Imnqttet,
Brother iu law Burrows, however,
would   hardly    describe   his    Immense
imher limits ns provender. The
Free Press apparently restricts the
meaning of Its invented term to cash
actually received The timber Iimii
will still continue to he     known its a
kingdom" or a principality of
which Brother in luw Burrows Is the
lordly ruler.
The    RllbntltllU f    the      word
"provender" for "graft" and "hoodie" is. perbnpH, timely. The pen
pie are thoroughly sick of the burp
Ing upon graft, grnft, graft, and
vet. there has been so much of it nn
earthed during tlio recent session
of parliament thai Ihey cannot get
away from II Describing it ns
"provender" will afford some little
relief during the heated spell, und
the term Ik so apt that the public
will have no dilllculty In readily
grasping its full meaning.

Continued from page 2,
Kiub (>f different elans. I luul the
pleasure of not only seeing imt having a chut, with Tbuoiloro Naplrr. the
moat unaompromialng Jucobite living. His picture is familiar to the
ronders ol the "Illaatrateil London
News." Mr. Napier iiKkcd ine to remember him to tliu Pipers Association of Vancoyver, whicli place he
visited u year ago. On Sunduy,
Colonel and Mrs. Wolfondon, and
Judge Forin and mysoll went to tlie
it o'clock .service lu at. Qiles Cathedral. The Colonel and myself pust
hy to sec the 78tli, tho Seafotth
Highlunders in their church parade.
Wu were somewhat disappointed us
the greater part of the regiment
wus out In cump. It was pleasant
to have tlie singing begin with the
Hundredth PSalm. The baud of the
regiment led the music There was
no seml-demi quavers, but the sing
iug wus decent nnd natural us befitted the place made famous by Jenny
Geddes's stool. The Rev. Mr. Marshall,- D.J)., the Moderator of the
General Assembly nf the Church of
Scotland aad the chaplain of the
forces preached the sermon. Dr.
Marshall is ubuut six feet three
inches in height. He possesses a
powerful and clear voice su necessary
In so large a building. The sermon
wns one which one might expect
from a Moderator of the Aald Kirk.
A stranger sitting by my side who
turned out to be fiom New Jersey,
U.S.A., remarked as we went out
"what a line practical sermon," no
gesticulations or sawing of the air.
The narrow confines of the pulpit
gave no room for prancing. He
raised bis arm but once. The attention was most striking as he delivered in earnest nnd eloquent tones
a sermon so instructive und impressive. My eye was attracted by ban
tiers hanging high up, the sacred
mementoes of many a bloody battle
lield. The standards of the Scottish regiments tind u resting place in
St. Giles. At 11, wc all went to
Dr. White's church. Dr. White is
one of Edinburgh's great preachers,
and we were not disappointed. The
church wns crowded. We were told
told that frequently there was not
even standing room. Dr. White has
as an assistant Dr. Kellan n young
mnn who visited Canada and the
United States last year and is a
very distinguished preacher. In tbe
evening we -went to St. Cathherts,
Dr. Macgregor's church. There certainly was no crowded edifice here.
Dr. Macgregor was not there, heing
I was told, unwell, but a young man
preached. Both here and in St.
Giles the service is divided, one taking the sermon only. Thus we spent
our only Sabbath in Scotland's ancient cap Itol. We had really a delightful week in Edinburgh. What
giants these monuments and busts
recall, on every turn, Cnrlyle, Murdoch;, Scntt, Watt, Knox, Ramsey,
Livingstone, Tannahill, Burns, Miller, Smith, Chalmors, Brewster,
Buchanan, Bruce and Gladstone.
Wilson, Moore, Lord Clyde, this
group alone In Abbey Craig in the
Wallace monument. Some name,
some spot made famous by deed or
genius met one at every turn. Our
stay was far too brief. We leave for
London, and then in a day or two
visit Paris under the guidance of the
Polytechnic Tourists Association.
This visit will he treated in my next.
