NO TIMfcJ KOK CRITICISM  AT SUCH A   CRISIS  Ottawa, May 2.���������Something of a  . sensation was caused in the House of  Commons last evening by Dr. Michael Clark, Liberal M. P., for Red Deer,  who during the debate on the war ap-  ' propriation resolution, contended  that ��������� criticism of the government  should be suspended until the war is  over.  The .debate had  developed  into a  dispute over the extent to which parly  politics entereed'into the work of the  government  in connection  with  the  war when Dr. Clark rose ancl asked  "whether this discussion  should ever, have taken'place."      He thought  some  of..tho  members  were  "losing  a sense of proportion in the greatest  crisis that this world, has over passed  through"    He added that in passing  this vote, he thought there should be  "a note of clear support of tlie.government from this side of-the House"  From his province,  2 65 6 more men  had enlisted  than   was  necessary to  make up their quota of the 500,000  Dr.   Clark  said  he  was   reasonably  proud   of   this.    The   people   of  Alberta  were  not so   concerned   as  to  where sugar  was being got for the  troops as about getting the troops.  Dr. Clark added thai he had been  impresseed by ihe Prime Minister's  address. He was proud of being a  citizen of Canada because of what  the present government has done  since the outbreak of the war. "He  believed now as he did at the beginning of the war, that the government  and the most of its supporters were  doing their utmost to further the prosecution of the war. When the war  was over, history would record that  whatever petty political fortunes of  the parties happened to be, the present head of the government, "has  cince the war cloud burst, kept an  eye single to the winning of the war,  and has not been turned aside by any  improper purpose of small consideration."  Dr. Clark said he was also impressed with the loyalty and devotion of the headquarters staff. "The  spirit that animated the government  and thes tac was the spirit, that animated the great majority of the people of this country."  No one in Canada, he declared, had  one meal less, or had had any fear  as a result of the war. He was  thankful to the men at the front  who were protecting Canada for us.  "I am thankful," he declared, "for  the way they stood in the breach a  year ago at St. Julien, and the way  they are standing in the breach today, and are prepared to sspend their  last drop of blood in our defence."  Dr. Clark declared that if the government had not made mistakes "it  would not be human. "You can't  make omelettes," he added, "without  breaking eggs." Of-course there  are mistakes.    Of  course there are  They (iet (he  I'm-ccl?* All  Right  Tim following Iuik been handed in  the following clipping taken from an  I'higlisli  paper:  Rlnginoro. Hector���������-How II-. C.

BATES, ���������     ���������* Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, MAY 5', 1910  It is almost too early to say  which side will come out with  a clear, record and untarnished  reputation in the mix-up in regard to the investigations now  going on in regard to the Vancouver and Victoria election  vote "plugging". Of course the  true Liberal will want his side  to be the purity piarty and the  Conservative will want to show  up the party who has caused so  much worry since the opening  of the present session. . But tlie  honest voter of the province  wonders to-day just where he is  at.  It seems that our politics are  not altogether as pure as they  should be and there are wrongs  on both sides that need fixing  up. We, heard a remark the  other day which will bear repeating, "There was nothing  like this when Dick was premier."  onist. Referring to Mr. Brewster, it represents him as being  hailed with the song: "Has  Anybody Here Seen Kelly?" Is  -this prophetic?���������Colonist.  Elsewhere we publish an  extract from the daily Province  dated from Ottawa which ��������� is  worthy the consideration of all  true Canadians and applies -to  the politics of this province as  much as it does to the politics  of the federal government. Dr.  Clark comes near the ideal in  his remarks when he says: "As  a private individual and citizen  who happens to be a member  of parliament,,! have no time  for criticisms. I am behind the  clear-eyed purpose of the premier of Canada and 'so are the  people of Canada; The demand  now is to stand under the flag  we love and to stand behind a  government which, history has  recorded, has done well. I am  behind this government, and I  believe the people are behind  this government until the war  is won beyond all doubt."  It would be just the same if a  Liberal government was at the  head of affairs, and we believe  Laurier would have , had that  same "clear-eyed purpose" had  he been premier. All this incessant criticism tends to call  the attention of the people of  Canada away from the one important matter now on hand���������  the war,be that eternal bickering criticism in the federal or  provincial house.  After the war is won and we  settle down to real business a-  gain all the wrong-doers in political life are sure to be weeded  out, but in the meantime letus  ask our politicians to act the  part of true Canadians. There  is enough to dishearten the people at the present'time without  having it brought home every  daily paper we read-, the fact,  that our politicians and our politics are all wrong. As members of the British Empire we  are a little ashamed of Ireland,  but there are other ways of diverting that "clear-eyed purpose" not so far away.  That was a foxy one that the  premier pulled off on Parker  Williams when he called attention to Williams' remark about  the need of counsel in the investigation. Socialists do not  usually believe there is any use  for lawyers.  There have been many requests to the government for a  loan since the Agricultural  Credits Act has come into force  Many of these applications have  come, from the Fraser Valley.  ���������; A writer in the Colonist asks  if the- taxes on farm improvements, will, be abolished. The  same paper goes on to state  that the Royal Commission on  Taxation recommended this,and  it was understood that Sir Richard McBride intended to adopt  it, but he apparently deemed it  inadvisable to do so, because of  the drop'in revenue that set in.  The Colonist strongly favors  the abolition of this tax, and, if  the revenue derivede from it is  essential ,.to the Provincial  Treasury, we suggest it should  be raised by increasing the tax  on unimproved ands. We hope  that the Government will at an.  early date give this matter very  serious consideration. Colonist;  It does seem a strange proceeding' to lend the farmer  money, to improve his land and  then tax him for his improvements; on the other hand it  seems hardly.fair to ,raise the  tax on the land of a man who  has not been fortunate enough,  or does not want, to borrow  from the governm ent. It is  bad both ways. Better cut out  the taxes until a way fair to  both is devised.  net it becomes entangled and so  damaged that it is an easy prey  for the enemy.  A Dutchman arrived in New  ��������� York one Decoration Day, and  saw the parades, and the flags  aud the music, and the flowers  being taken to. the cemeteries.  He asked what it was all about  and was told they were decorating the graves of departed  friends, and was asked if he  would like to have a bouquet of  flowers to take to any graves  that hejvyould. like to decorate.  He replied: "Well, no, most of  those people whose graves I  would like to decorate are still  living."  She was a poor lone widow  once more, for she ''had just  buried a husband for the third  time. Calling to condole with  the bereaved 'parishioner the  minister touched on the many  gifts and graces of her dear  departed, and said, by way of a  parting word: ''Be comforted,  dear madam', in your great affliction. It is doubtless a heavy  burden to bear, but it must be  a source of great consolation  to you that you do not sorrow  as one who has no ' hope."  "Deed it is, minister," said the  bereaved lady, drying her eyes.  "He was a guid man, was John;  but I'm not that auld yet, an'  as you say, I've aye the hopes  o' getting anither ane."  Regulate the Women.  We have just come across a  clipping from a Vancouver contemporary, and we think it is  from The World. It was printed sometime previously to January 25, ancl is a humorous comment on what was meant to be  a humorous article in The Col-  A good deal'has appeared in  print about trapping submarines, but the Admiralty has not  yet seen its way clear to gratify  a not unrnatural public curiosity  as to the modus operandi, remarks an exchange. Vosiche  Zeitung, of Berlin, being under  no censorship in this regard;,  undertakes to tell how the thing  is done, and at the same time to  let its readers into the secret  of the manner in which the  cross-Channel passage is projected.    We quote:  A net has been drawn from  Dover to the French coast opposite, and another from Portland Bill, near Weymouth, to  Cape La Hogue. Between  these two nets there is a space  of over 150 miles, sufficient for  all transport service. But a net  extends from the Mull of Can-  tyre in Scotland, to Ireland, and  another from Cansore Head in  Ireland to St. David's Head in  South Wales, in order to protect the Irish Sea. To allow  the passage of trading vessels  and the warships of the Allies  these nets have been fitted with  gates, which can be shut and opened like ., pontoons. These  passages are known only to the  British Admiralty, and are often changed. Since submarines can descend to 300 feet under water.thes nets reach to sea  bottom, as the Channel is never  deeper than 265. The upper  edge of the net is fastened to  buoys, and both upper and ower  , edges are anchored so that the  1 storms and ebb and flood tides  cannot change the position of  the net, or damage it in any  way. The anchor chains are also shortened, sot hat the buoys  are a few feet below the level  of the water, consequently the  submarines cannot see the nets.-  either above or below the water  If one of them plunges into the  Writing in  the Toronto  Saturday  Night, Henry A. Ashmead says:  "We all know the W. C. T. U.  are after cigarettes and tobacco, but  if these good women who would deprive a man of his glass of beer  would combine-with the men's committee they might do for young women what they-are trying to do for  the young men. Why not agitate for  the suppression of such plays as  "The Eternal Madeline" and a score  of others which contain more deadly  poison than ever was distilled in the  form of alcohol? Then again, why  not cut out matinees and' picture  shows during the duration of the  war? What an enormous amount  they could invest for creative comforts to those -men they are so desirous of helping. If sacrifices are  to be made let it not be one-sided.  Most women lose nothing by prohibition;, some men much. Eventually  tho time will come when all allusion to drink or liquor will be eliminated from our standard authors,  but there is always a silver lining to  every cloud, and if we have to part  with the famous characters in Dickens of Mr. Pickwick, Mr. Wardell  and Cheeryble Brothers we shall lose  at the same time those of Rev.

One man as he  points out, will pounce upon the front  page, another upon sports; some go  straight for the market columns,  some to want ads, others to society,  theatres and what not. For his own  part, says the correspondent, he observes the following order: First, the  weather and baseball, then real estate, next the editorial page ancl last  of all the first page,, where he skips  as far as possible such unromantic  things as divorce, crime and colitics  This is an interesting bit of personal revelation.

If you are not in the fighting'line you may be in the producing line. ' Labour  is limited���������all the more reason to do more than ever  before. Grow food for the. men who are fighting for you." The Allies need all tlie food that  ybu can produce. Every-little helps'. You arc responsible for your own work: If you  cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you. can. Work with the right  spirit. ��������� Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts." The more  you produce the more you can save.    Producing and saving are war-service.  'Make' Your Labour Efficient  In war-time do not waste time and energy on unim-'  portant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.  Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if  possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada  needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. , Make 3'our backyard a productive garden.'  Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much at* possible.  Do Not Waste Materials  There should be no waste in war-time,:  Canada could  pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out  of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in-  our homes.'   Every pound of food saved from' waste is as good as a pound of increased  production.    The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save.    France is strong.  -to-day because of thrift in time of peace.    The men and women of Great Britain are' not  only " doing " but are learning to "do without."  Spend ;Yow Money Wisely  finance the war  better investment.  Practise economy in the home by eliminating luxuries.    Wasting ��������� our dollars here weakens our strength  at "the" Front.
