Changes for tbe Batter.
What changes have occurred since
1S96? In the commerical world Canada was a speck on tbe map, now
she looms large as a national figure.
Financially, Canada was not re- I
garded as a desirable field for investment, now she is described by a
representative of a _ r eat mercantile
agency as 'he most satisfactory
country to give ample returns and
���good security for capital.
The Nt nbwest was an empty
wilderness, a 'source ot expense to the people. To-day

ebb. In Conservative times tbe
natural resources of Canada were
exploited in tbe interests ofj

The degree of proptrity wliich I
bas been Canada's happy experience is remarkable, It rarely falls
to the lot 0: a political party to see
its promises fulfiled tat such a satisfactory extent. The Liberals promised tbe people that a policy would
be inaugurated wliich would result
���in larger revenues ��� tbat lhe
national resources should be developed in a manner which should
benefit all the people���that a vigorous immigration policy would be
adopted which would result in making of the Northwest a territory of
waving corn fields, instead of tbe
solitary home of the prairie dog.
Dreary Conservative Times.
All of this has been done and
more, In a short eleven years the
Liberal party has changed Canada
so that the old days of Conservative regime remain but as a bor-rid
nightmare. The days of grafting.

Scandal Not Popular.
One fact must not be over
looked, that is that discredited men will not be allowed to
monopolize the time of Parliament.
When reminded of their own delin
quencies, these self constituted cen
sots will subside, and the business of
the country will proceed.
Discredited Men Silent.
There should be rfo repetition of
the disgraceful scenes of the last
two sessionj. Mr. Foster burling
his antj-emas broadcast, charging
reputable people with crimes, holding up eminent men to derision���
all of these things should be impossible now. The House can
remind Mr. Foster that he has only
just emerged from the investigation
of a Royal Commisssion with his
own reputation besmirched,howthen
can he bave the audacity to continue his attacks from the standpoint
of one whose record justifies such
position? Mr. Foster lias forfeited
any right he may have had to
criticise, he himself will be object
of very caustic criticism should he
have the impertinence to obtrude
his objectionable personalities upon
the House.
The same may be said of several
��ther Conservative  members, their
unbridled   tongues   were   used   to:
villify   their   fellow   members,   but j
inexorable     retribution     overtook |
them in an exposure of their deal-J
iugs  in which  thev  traded
their  positions  as members of the 1
Mouse.    These   gentlemen will not
be so flippant in the future.
Bearing in mind that tbe Conservative party is so unpopular, and
many ol its prominent members
have been discredited before the
.people, it is u it likely that former
attempts   at   slander  and  baseless

the Kiver road.
A communication wis also reafl
from John Oliver, M.P.P., pointing
out 'the tkfects of the work done

that the Council ,rcake a. note iff

TUESDAY,  NOVEMBER    12,   1907.
A community torn by dissensions,
rent asunder by strife and contention
���th* peopls ready always to fly at
each other's throats on account of
rivalry and petty jealousies���can
never hope to succeed. Tho universal brotherhood of man is constantly
deferred and the 'end of time will
appear before this great desideratum
can he brought about, unless man
Shall bo brought to the realization
Of this, his dominant, weakness. Let
him enquire,. "Who ls my neighbor?"
The man who makes money in a
community has a duty to porform to
that community. It may be that he
has made his money by his superior
business ability, and that ho would
have done as well anywhere. That
does not alter tho case. If his gifts
are great his responsibility ls equally great. Xo mnn was placed on
earth for the sole purpose of making
money, and the man who has this as
his ideal hart better never have been
born. It is not an act of charity, but
the pe. ormance of a simple duty for
tho man who has made money to
pass a little of It on for the benefit
of the community, even though he
never expects to see a dollar ot his
contribution hack.
Our present Reeve, H. M. Vasey,
having disposed of the bulk of his
interests here and expecting to
divest himielf of the balance, it behooves the taxpayers to look about
them for someone to fill the Reeve's
chair for the ensuing year.
During Mr. Vasey's short term
of e-ffice he has proved himself
worthy of the confidence of the
people, and we regret, very much,
his leaving this district.
The names ol Jahn A. Paterson
and P. T. Gibbie have been mentioned as well worthy lo fill this
position, and, in the event of Mr.
Paterson running for the Reeveship,
Sam Morley is lookel upou as
likely to make a gcod representative to fill the Councillor's chair for
Ward IV.

Good supplies of fowl and chicken

ample in supply without variation
in price.
Considerable shipments of 'apples
were on the matket and for these

limited. The purchase of potatoes
was quite equal to the supply,
though a very fair quantity were on
