H1GH-XR POLITICAL  IDEALS ,
The editor oi ilu Grand Forks Gazette, one of the bright, aide men of the
province,' i losed an alile article upon
the tlicii.*- of higlier ideals in "political
Hie "with 'he following comment upon the part played "in politics by the
press:
"The
bress itself is responsible for
".inch of tVc more im wholesome atmosphere which envelopes public life
today. -.Ve are all sinners, and. our
party alUUatious too often lead , to
an unfairness of utterance which simply cxa.-erbales without upliiting
anybody or anythiig.
"This ;s too Dig a M4*j(jcct to tackle
at the "ag end of - an already    long
. article, but wc might   mention    one-
iu which , larty  papers   are conspicuous offenders against the public. We
refer to the report of p\-hjlic meeting?
which at Kast should lie regarded as
news ond reported   with fairness    on
•both, bides'.   Only  thc other day,   the
News it.-ie.f and other Liberal .'papers
at the.Coast published a lengthy repot t of a meeting "'in Greenwood    in
which    one   speaker was     dismissed
wilh a paragraph,.  while the opponent's adl-jss was    given columns   ol
space with "ail thc    necessary eulogy
and padding;'.   The place for this was
tht    editorial    columns.    The public
might agree with either or neither of
the  speakers,  but though party    ad-'
-   vantage   i«ay     be secured' by these
methods', we arc   positive    that    the
public good is not promoted.
"We cau all echo the wish   for    n
..,stronger, '.cutter state of things   pb-
. li.tic.al,   a*id  can  at   least  encourage,
and    not dishearten     those who sn
honestly ioiug their, best..   As to the
character cl that best, it is well    to
recall Diderot's words,  'II est si  difficile de    uoduirc " itne , chose meine
nieditiere; *i est si facile de scntir la
ttiediocrite.' "
We mo.*.t cordially   agree witH t*H^
editer of    the Gazette as to the    responsibility of the' press in the'  matter, of politics as in everything ".••hich
pertain-*' io the public influence,   and
,   the only l'ault we have to find   with
-"-its-article- is-iTs-iiiildntss-oI-tone..—
That    tl e press Wields a great    influence upon the^ public mind'can not
be denied, * but  that that power    to
i*-*flut»cc is too often abused is e«jtial-
ly  apparent.      In fact|'thc  abuseAol
its power ior the purpose of adcamc-
iHg supposed party interests, be those
it
ol
injuring their party.:-.Xo;greater ..injury couid be inflicted upon' a .party
than just such action.
Ths edit.-r,,of the Gazette is today
the supposed victim (we use the word,
supposed * advisedly) of unfair ^ and
un justifiable party methods. There
is little doubt but that had the elec-",
lion in tlw district' in whicli he was
ihe candi'latc of the Conservative
paity been held upon the same' day
as the elei lions' were held in the Dominion ge**Krally,.he would today lie
repicscnting tliat district at Ottawa
The W'gcr has a decided leaning
towards the Liberal' party, but it
does' not -propose to shut its cjts to
sucli things because they arc practiced by the party whose principle's
advocates as preferable to those
the 'Conseivativc parly. "»'*'',
'There vas no,reason for holding
that election on a'later date* than
that of ihe general election, except
that of -,avly advantage, and any
party showing a willingness to take
advaklngc of such tactics, will, in
time reap the inevitable fruits of such
action., ,. *
;The Ledger docs not pretend to be
an oracle r1 wisdom, and it confesses its utlcr inability to fathom the
depths of "'the well of wisdom from
which the inspiration to such action
by a party backed by an' already unwieldy * majority,   is     drawn.	
election .esulUil in increasing
majority by one vote in a too
sided  house.
; The    Ledger   has   no fault to find
with    the   energetic   gentleman    who
was returned for     the district.     He
lias dune g^od work in ntfany ways iii
the House, but the fact remains that
lie is the lecipicnt of the results    of
unfair   political methods,   resort >d to
liy a patty having no need to resort
fo them, and   which proclaims' itself
as the champion of  absolute fairness
it   politicil  warfare. ■'
j The one tie at fault in t*nc application of* paity politics is party   zeal,
which'prompts   to such things;    but
ilia remsdy, it seems to the Ledger,'
lies in the hands of     the independent
|oter   backed up by an    independent
ijrcss, until the party medicine    man
learned  that his practices   must
much in*orer: uponUhe moral "sense and'
religious f«.-cling**of ?*.thc people than
upou""such" "useless^lawif as' tlle' Lord's
Day Act rassed at Ottawa, after so
much compromising; and dickering as
to how the bill should lie granted, 7 so
as -"• to * nsake "tlte ■ Sab**6ath day- more
holy without;, interferingLwith, anybody's ideas of how .the day should,
he kept.. ..; *.\
/Alaw fiamed with, the deliberate.
purpose n or avoiding the principle upon which,, it is supposed to ."lie based
will never, be workable.' This Lord's
Day Bill was,supposed to lie" based
upon the principle* 'tha*r the majority
of the people, through'"-their representatives, have a. right to define'just
\yhat acts are right and which arc,
wrong, so lai as keeping 'the' Sai&ijIh
is conceited, and. to enact legislation
to enfoiec these opinjons upon tliose
who, differ with them.' ,. r„ .
Biit-the bill! when / it1 has passed
through,'he two,houses, and.litis' received the royal .'approval', is lound
10 '^ be a juinbied-up ,'mcss of com-
promises', .each of. whidi makes a surrender of the ' supposed 'principle -if
tjie hill.  .."".'■'
The ,la.v, as it stands, accomplishes nothing except ,. the discredit .tl
those wlio so. strenuously labored Ior
wllat thjy claimed tliey had been con-
tending for upon principle.

the lack of opportunity is no greater
