PAGE TWO  f TIBS ABBOTgFORD POST  ^Published Every Friday  J. a! BATES, Editor and Proprietor  =3=  FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1022  It is an excellent thing that people | and Mr. Meighen.    One cannot think  divi-   that Mr. Dritry or any   of   his   colleagues would suggest that theysvf-  pressAb'oycott.    Sjnguavly  are divided into two distinct  sions for the purpose of the government of tho country. It is a' serious  matter when the electorate seek a  division of more than two, as it is  almost impossible then for one party  to control a majority of the House.  Manitoba at the peresent time is an  excellent example of division into  more than two parties. The present  House of Commons at Ottawa cannot  give us , government according, to  true Liberal principles, as' were the  opposing'parties to unite, while not  probable, is within the range of possibility. '-A-' great measure, .embodying a goverment principle, and a law  that would redound to the'credit ol*  the party fathering it, and''one - that  would result in'good to the country,  is always in" danger 'when a third  party can step in, for any reason/ aud  join a'minority, thus'making it 'a  majority.'The oppositions in "Manitoba acted-sorry a few weeks age when  they awoke to the realzation of- what  had been/done by voting against th ;  government. It'does '"not tend to  stable government.  Another''serious- situation in party  government isrwhen the members' of  the party'do'-not agree. An instance  of this was seen a few months ago  when nierifbers of the Oliver government began pulling different strings  different ways. It-was the result ol  the opposition battery during the  session. ' The" ��������� solid front under  Bowser's leadership neairly did the  trick of'slaying- Goliath. -Had noc  the. fear .off defeat, at the polls faced  the Liberals they might' have for  sakeu: fheir'-leader. -The sessional  indemnity :'was. what did the trick.  The'big get together at Victoria,  when" the* leader's wings were trimmed and'he acknowledged that he  had taken too' much responsibility  upon his own shoulders, thinking he  was the whole thing, himself,  brought-back'the Liberal smile of  unity until such time as Bowser has  another whirl at them in the/legislature or on .the hustings at a general  election. This unity of puirpose for  time being was to an extent strengthened too with the"return of the Liberal party-at Ottawa', and. the possibilities of- -fair treatment of this  .. province by- the dominion with Liberals at- both capitals. But the day  of battle is still to be faced for iii2r-3  ��������� is-really no-more true unity--within  " theJparty,' now- that, there was last  October, under the present" l3ader-  ship.      - '  - Then the question arises is there  any more faith in- present leadership  in the Conservative . ranks, than- in  the Liberals, of this "province? That  Kamloops. ��������� resolution might ' have  been in earnest,, but we do not believe it was. "Was It just'a Way the  Conservatives .of kamloops had of  strengthening Bowser's 'hand "and giving him an opportunity to ��������� state his  sideof-the case. .-It is .believed that  today Bowser has a more united party  behind him than before he sent the  reply to Kamloops. Notice he made  no secret of what the letter contained which he sent in answer to-the  resolution. He has faith in himself  and his party. Bowser may not be  a great leader but he feels that until  his successor is appointed he has rt  duty'to perform for his pairty." We  can't believe yet, though, that the  Kamloops Conservatives really  thought that the wisest step'for-Bow-  ser to take���������to resign two months  before the Convention and leave the  party without a leader. And Bowser  by reading between the lines, kn-sv/'  what was'really- meant- and acted a -  cordingly.  fer'from a  enough one of the great- daily Journals of "unholy Montreal" gives  more space to Mr. Crerar's speeches  than does any other newspaper in  the country. At Calgary a few weeks  ago, H. W. Wood had a happy and  violent hour'with the press, -but he  was faithfully and "fully reported.,  The Manitoba Free Press is the ardent ally of the Western Grain' Growers and the service which it does, for  the Farmers' political party' is" incalculable. It was not easy during the  general election to detertnlne, Whether some of> the-most- powerful Liberal journals in Ontario preferred  Mr. Crerar to Mr. King,* or Mr. King  to, Mr. Crerar. If there yras any  ground,for grievance.in this .connection at% least" it "did hot lie v/ith the  farmers. Whatever may be the faults  of the press of Canada, it is not corrupt Jand above all things it is not  the servant of "the interests."���������Standard Sentinel.  THE RETURN OF  THE MRNNONITES  It now appears that the prairie  Menrionites who shook the dust of  Canada off their feet; a few months'  ago, and established a large colony  in Chihuahua, Mexico, have had a  change of heart. ' The two million  acres .of distant pastures; looked  green, but the climate"does hot agree  with the" settlers. They' ndw want- to  come back "home."  The "Mehnonites' left ' thfa'.country,  because our' laws'and "customs are  distasteful to them. '"We "have'a ceiv  tain standard of living which they  consider unnecessarily high. We -insist that our children shall be'ed'icat-  ed, and to this they object'most strenuously. In the many years they resided in Canada, they remained aloof  as aliens and foreigners, showing no  interest in our customs or institutions.    They are a people apart.  Having left Canada of their own  free will, ' and purchased land . in  another country, they' have virtually  abandoned" their"citizenship, rif "fiver-  they possessed this boon." Many, of  them had not been : naturalized;  though here for a score of yedrs."'  Whether -these-Menrionites* should  be permitted to re-enter r the- Dominion is a' /question * the1'/,authorities  would do' well' to .consider'seriously:  There are, provisions'of."the1 Immigration Act under'"which these "malcontents may;/ be'" "refused entry,"." and  once we are rid of a nuisanctf.it would  seem' a pity-' to' let' it'retujpfi'* because"'  the Mexican climate is'not: uh'���������'-to4advance.-notices..-For that, "at le&st,"  Canada'"cannot "be blalmedv.  It may-be difficult tcTgef rid- of  undesirable'elements in dor .midst-,  but it is easy to oppose legal, barrier  to their re-entry. ,,It should be done.  The Menho'nite ' tribute to'"Carispda-  comes too late.���������World.  On oiie'-occaaion, when I- stayed  with a newly'rinarried couplo, 1 almost persuaded'myself that the cooking afforded; an index to the varying  happiness' of the marriage. At one  meal all theSlishes were "joy dishes;,-' at another the joy had departed.  It was if every quarrel spoiled tlie  broth arid every reconciliation improved it.  No doubt a certain allowance must  be'made,^ but,- on the other hand, inefficient," uneven cooking is a great  trial, and the"exasperation caused by  it accumulates "from .day to day. At  the back of-a mail's miifd there is  ���������the thought. "She, *can cook this  quite well When^slre likes." And so  when she doesn't like , there is apt  to be bitterness.   -... ,  , I have asked a great many engaged girls what they, think about this-  supremely, important subject. So  far as J can make out, most of them  just laugh, as "though the matter was  ?a". great joke.      .    ;���������  One of them, a,llttle more serious  than the.others, favored me wit.i  the information that,she had drivon  a motor car-in .France, worked as a;  nurs'e'in a hospital and 'made/munitions,; all in three years. , ,  "What," I-asked, " has that got to  do with cooking?"  "Well, I think I can turn my hand  to pretty well anything," she said.  "After these experiences a three-  ��������� course dinner isn't likely to frighten  me."  This over-confidence, I Relieve, is  the root of the trouble. These girls  are capable and they know they arc  capable. So'they don't trouble to  give, 'their capabilities the dlaoii'lino  which alone can secure sucess.  Running a house well is a moat  diffiult task. When the cooking has  to be done single-handed the difficulty is' doubled. Compared .with  that work, .motor,cars and munitions  are relatively insignificant.  "Tlie very b*st advice that .������iinbe  'given to most modern engaged ��������� girls  who "will have, to "fend for themselves"'-when married is to take lessons  in plain cooking and work at th^se  lessons as if their future happiness  depended on the outcome.

At the opening of the story, Charlie

Charlie's faithful dog, famishing-'for

CALGARY, April 2H.-���The only
possible hope the P. G. E. has of securing traffic that might enable -it

night, AV. .J. Mowser, K. CV; '-'ma-Io
public a letter which he mailed yesterday to the secretary of 'the KaniT
E. Meighen.' ��� M.r Bowser's letter-
makes it clear that he' has no ' intention of resigning the leadership of
lhe Conservative party until tl.\"
provincial convention has been assembled. The letter follows':
.- "Dear Mt. Meighen���1 am in re-
ceipt-of your letter of the. 1-3th inst.,
enclosing copy of resolution passed
by the Kamloops Conservative- Asso
ciation-in which they express- 1:i��
opinion that I should resign the
leadership of our party 60. days before the proposed' convention.
"As you know, I was chosen leader
in'1919 at a very large- ,and ./representative convention from'the whole
province,'and have been carrying on.
ever since to the best of my abilit \
and when a -suggestion such as ' this
comes from a. section of the party
only I must fully consider what my
duty is to the par.ty.as a whole, and
I am strongly of tho. opinion, in
which many of my, friends agrc.\
that I.must undertake and carry out
all the responsibilities of that office
until the convention is held. When
the convention meets the joint committee appointed from the Nationa'-
Liberal-Conservative party will present a report which, if adopted,
means that the above two parties
will disappear, and a new party, to b'j
known as the Liberal-Conservative
party, will take the place of the other two. When this happens my fern:
as leader automatically comes to an
end and I simply go back on tli >.
floor as an ordinary'delegate to the
convention, which at once chooses' ?.
leader fo,r the new party, and 1 may,
or may. not, allow my."name to b'o
brought forward for that'position.

t propose to issue .a. public statement
"along this line, so that the elect-id
delegates . may thoroughly- understand my position in the matter, and
to know that any delegate will thus
be at liberty to bring before the co ��� -
vention the name of any , persoo
whom he may consider a proper person for leader.

finds our party without a leader.

yesterday, Hon. W. H. Sutherland,

"There's not one of 'em don't

trade here. *Why*should I advertise?
SI don't need it."
The circus man reflected. He
looked across the street and felt
stumped. He looked up the street
and decided that he was stumped.
Then he looked down ,the street, as
far as the church. Then he turned
to the storekeeper.
"Nice church down there," he said,
"How long has that been there?"
"Forty years, I guess," said the
merchant. "Most everybody around

"That church has been there forty
