MacKelvie Nominated  Thc nomination of J. A. MacKelvie by tlie  Libera] Conservative convention at Penticton  lasL Thursday evening -was looked for by all  having an eye lo -what should he from the parly  view point. Editor MacKelvie has long bcen a  slaunch Liberal Conservative, and his service in  the interest of llie parly surely entitled him to  any recognition lhal could be given bim. His  long residence in Ih.c Okanagan, and his broad  insight inlo Ih.c needs, and possibilities of thc  dislrict especially til him I'or lhc position to  which he is now an aspirant. No man could bc  better fitted lo undertake the work laid down bv  lhe Mon. MarlinJJJurrcll.  His nominalion'does nol mean a-walk-over for  lhe party hc represents. If hc is elected it will  be b}' Liberal Conservative voles, though "it cannol he said lhal Mr. MacKelvie will nol have, lhe  support of many Liberals who, while recognizing his slaunch adherence to Conservatism, slill  have confidence ih his wisdom and open mind.  " That he will be opposed by a farmer candidate  now looks certain. This facl alone does not imperil his election, though in this constituency  lhe United Farmers should stand a better chance  of electing a candidate lhan in any other, constituency in the Province. If they fail here lhcy  would fail anywhere in B. C. Mr.- MacKclvie's  strongest opposition, will come from straight  out-and-oul Liberals, who cannot forget thc pasl  and scoll' a I "lhc idea of coalition as it is. camouflaged.  Ncxt Monday at Pcnliclon delegates lo "the  United Farmers convention-will gather to place  in nomination onc ol* lhcir number to conlcsl  the riding, ll is going to in can lhe expenditure  of lhree or four thousand dollars to carry on ihc  campaign, hut the.v are prepared to go through  with it. believing in the justice of their cause and  thai it cosls money to gel anything worlh while.  It is not known what position thc Veterans  and Organized Labor will take. If an acceptable  Candida le can be chosen by thc United Farmers  ���������������������������acceptable to, bolh ihesc parties���������������������������il is possible  lhcy will combine to elect thc Farmer candidate  as opposed to tlie Meighen group government.  Group Form of Government  If we Canadians once accept as correct thc  group form of government, il most surely will  lead us inlo all the trials and tribulations which  havc characterized lhe governments of Europe  thc past few years. Unstable, whimsical, weak  and vaseillating thej- havc been, one group following another in powcr and oul again.  We pride ourselves, or our leaders do, in having a coalition government. In poinl of fact,  have we? AVe have nol. Never havc had, although we carry the camouflage. We have a  self appointed group in powcr. They represent  neither lhc Conservative parly as a parly, bov  lhc Liberal parly as a party. From the commencement of what we are pleased lo lerm. our.  coalition government wc have had the Liberal  party standing in opposition lo lhe Ottawa  group. There cannot bc a coalition unless the  parties get together. This thay have nol done,  and show, no intention of doing. Our leaders  may continue lhc subterfuge, but thcy cannot  put it over. In attempting to do so they make  way for other groups���������������������������farmer groups, labor  groups, and thc like. Logically, if wc accept in  principle group government���������������������������which our leaders  arc attempting to put over���������������������������then we must carry  Ihe principle lo its logical end, and bc prepared  for all that grioup government implies.  It is all very-well for the presenl group at  Ottawa to declare it is the coalition government.  Il cannot get away with it wh.ilc thc Liberal  party is not a parly to thc coalition. The grouping of a few men who were Torrics and Grits a  few ycars ago docs not make a coalition. If lhcy  Jail- to carry,-,lheir party wilh them Ihcy become  a group, ancl onc group simply makes v%ay for  another. It may bc Mcighcn today "and Crcrar  tomorrow.  Tlie trouble vve'sec in this group form of govern ment" is nol in the mch selected by the group,  bul in the method of thc selection.

A country miay find it  necessary���������������������������as Caniada 'found it  necessary���������������������������to iborrow heavily to  tide itself over a period of crisis.  But the country must make -provision* for the liquidation of ������������������t'be loans.  That is exactly what the government of Canada h'as done; that 'is  the object, of the "luxury" tax���������������������������to  pay our national way; to liquidate  our indebtedness. In bis address on  the budget on the flooir of the  house, 'tihe Hon. Mr. Fieldling, former mniister -of finance under tlie  Laurier adimlin-isiOnation, said: "We  must understand quite clearly tliat  we have got to carry a largely increased burden of taxation."  This /is* celrtadnl. The national debt  now H-irfC'iints. tic. about $350 (pefr  oap'ita, and a'- nnust 'Contribute to  its gradual liquidation. This is an  inescapable obligation.  Criticism of the.'budget was to be  expeicted. and if it were" all constructive -critioisim it would be well.  Unifortiimaitely 'most' of the demands  on the government are simply. that  the lluxiury fax be thrown in the  wasite paper basket.   ���������������������������  The retail merdhants of Canada,  if one is to vtake the, recommendations to Ottawa is a criterion of  thei'r general attitude to "the tax,  ���������������������������resent' being used as tax collectors.'  The /merchianits- association asks  thlat the tax -be applied at the base,  that is, on the manufacturers -and  importers. Thlis is natural, 'for undoubtedly J the collection oE the ,tax  by retailers will :be a,'burden,, ibut  hiding tlhe levy at tlhe base would  not accom(pT:ish one of tflie) prinve  features of, the tax���������������������������Its directness.

Hardiness, "says *he superintendent,  is not a factor of great importance  on the coast, since the winter temperatures are* not low enough to  cause sevelre frost injury to any  strain of alfalfa.  The ever popular Grim alfalfa, so  successful in close seeding, has the  fault of going down when grown in  rows wider, apart it'lvan eighteen  inches. The New Zealandi varieties  resemble the Ontario in character  and may be grown in rows or mass.  The yellow flowering kinds are low  in  habit an'd low in yield.  In three cuttings ithe Ontario  Variegated has yie"ided five tons of  d'ny hay "per acre wihen grown in  rov.3 thirty inches apart.  The finest quality of hay, h*owJ  ever, and -the most satisfactory  mowing has been done on areas  wihere the row- were twelve and  eighteen inches- apart.  Use f'Ontario variegated .alfalfa  seed, sow in rows "thirty inches or  less apart, cultivate and keep free  from weeds the first summer.  When the plants 'are well established use a spring tooth cultivator  across the" Blows', iim'ni'eidiiateTy the  crop is off. This will remove all  grass and; weetdls and cause no injury to the deep, strong-rooted,  drought-resistant.- alfalfa plants.  To say of a man that he will make  a good .husband is much the same  sort of a compliment as to say of a  horse that it is perfectly safe for  a woman to drive.���������������������������^Blighty.
