" >-  In drawing attention to ..the fact that the defence resolutions must rank as the most important of all the questions to be discussed at the  Imperial Conference, Sir Joseph* Ward said Great  Britain's policy was being watched with care and  solicitude. The old order of Imperial defence, he  said, under which the young Colonies had been  started and had advanced fronv infancy to manhood had reached the close-of its career of usefulness. With the growth of the wealth and jthe  population of the" Oversea Dominions,, and1 with  the obligations laid upon them of .making further  provisions for Imperial defence,-closer and more  organized co-operation' was demanded' between \  the Motherland and* the different parts of the  'Empire.

We suggest a careful perusal of fthe fol-  ' lowing: J ."->'  ; > <Ev������nU From 1867 to 1905.  The British North America Act, while leaving  the question of education under provincial control, provided that Separate Schools should be re^  tained .in Ontario for Roman Catholics, and in  Quebec, for Protestants.   The fact of th������i l*rotest-  Thelfefore.the-vHatqueatiojn^fblrth/e Empire's polir   , ants tn-Quebec having Separate Schools Has given  tical leaders; was how effectively and permanently     ris*e to a^plausible argument by Roman Catholics  to maintain   the "two-Power" standard.

We must oonttibute" in proportion ai-we* ������������������ 'regarding, the educational' facilities in the projr-  Thave advanced to manhood to <our .protection-and ----ineesjof Ontario and Quebec^ and show whether  also to the Empire's." , ( ,, ^   ,  He said that the. New Zealand-people recognized that the'day was near for organized Irou  &_  A  *<&  perial unity .and systematic co-operation through'  \i out the Empire for defence, of which the aim was  *to weld the Empire into one great, although necessarily flexible, 'State'ior defence purposes, preserving for all portions the 'widest local autonomy  but transferring to a Council or Parliament of  the Empire of Defence all questions involving that  defence and all kindred subjects, such as foreign  ���������, policy, foreign treaties and international agree-  ' ments.    The speaker quoted as a case in point  the Declaration of, London.   Without committing  himself, Sir'Joseph Ward suggested the creation  of an Imperial House of Representatives returned  upon a basis of population, and an Imperial Senate to which each portion of the Empire would'  elect equal numbers of members, such a Parliament to be strictly limited to the consideration of  the Imperial questions mentioned, and to adjust  |, and determine the contributions for Imperial defence _of _each _Dominion represented.   _It would-  also determine the need and extent of local de-  l\fences'throughdut' the Empire.  ; A True Imperial Parliament. ���������  If each Oversea Dominion followed its own lines  Of defence there must be a disposition, without  'organized co-operation, to-weaken some of the  Ivties of Empire; Organized Imperial unity Hiust  ihe based on increasing contributions from the  IDominioDS, but no system was possible which,  [while witnessing these contributions of the young  [nations, should refuse them a voice in the vital  (operations for which they were made. The constitutional principle was no taxation without representation, which could only be effectively given  Iby the establishment of a Council or Parliament  las he had suggested in outline. Sir Joseph Ward  [urged that the creation of a true Imperial Parlia-  lent would be of particular advantage to the  icople of the Motherland in connection with their  lomestic and internal policies. The House of  iCommons 'had become woefully overburdened  lwith work, but if the Empire's foreign policy and  feefence. were transferred to an Imperial Council  there 'would be an incalculable gain in domestic  legislation and administration and the mainten-  mce of a strong organ,izQd defejiee system. These  >roposals would harmonize with internal local  Autonomy, and with Home Rule for England. Ire-  )iid. Scotland and Wales, and would so contribute  Jo the great national purposes of harmony withiu  lie Empire and safety from foreign combinations  ir attack. If such a scheme could be made practical and effective the Imperial Parliament of'De-  jnce might quicken and'stimulate unity'in the  fidest sense by sitting not only in London hut"  Ipriodieally at Ottawa.: Capetown., the Federal  ppitol of Australia, and WellingtonYand possibly ;  le King might, when, practicable;, open Parliament in these centres^' '  In concluding his eloquent and. statesmanlike  lldress.  the  New Zealand Prime- Minister,   de-  lared. that so strong were .now the ties locally.  determined' were -the Dominions to maintain  I e Empire's naval'supremacy,'and so  rapidly''  ?re the wealth and population of the Dominions'  [creasing, that under a properly-organized union,  nth a just distribution of burden, a'United British  there, is any real necessity for Separate Schools in  either province.  ' ������������������ .In the Province of Ontario there is an excellent  public school system, where the children of a  Protestant, a Roman Catholic, a Mohammedan, or  a Jew, can secure a good secular education without receiving any offence to their religious convictions. "Therefore, there is no necessity whatever for a' state-aided Separate School system.  ��������� The government has done its part when it provides a public school where the elements of secu-  , lar education can be imparted to the children of  ���������the nation, and where the diverse elements of the  population can be fused into one common citizenship and made loyal to the government.  In the Province of Quebec there is no such  thing as a public school system. The schools of  the majority are Roman Catholic schools and the  main thing that is taught in them is the religion  ot the Roman Catholic church. Could a Protestant send bis children to a school where they would  he taught, or compelled lo listen to tbe teaching,  that Protestants will be eternally damned?���������Would  he like his children to go to a school where they  would be .continually pointed out as heretics?  'Would be like his children to attend a school  where tbey would be in tbe same position as  foreigners? Nine-elevenths of the total population  of Quebec is French, and the English speaking  people are in a very small minority. French is  the language spoken and taught in the majority  of the schools; and an English speaking child, in  a country owning itself as part of the British  Empire, would be practically compelled to learn  another language before it would be able to get  even the small amount of education given in the  schools of the majority in the Province of Quebec.  Let Protestants remember this- fact. The schools  of the majority in Ontario are public schools,  where children of all .creeds and nationalities can  secure a good secular education without any offence being given to their religious convictions.  The schools of the majority in the Province of  Quebec are Roman Catholic schools, where the  creed and dogmas of that church are taught, and  where a Protestant child would be exposed to insult and ridicule. There also exists another very  good reason why it is absolutely necessary for  Protestants to have a Separate School System in  the Province of Quebec. It. is the only place  where their children can get a good education.  Let us take the testimony of some leading Roman  Catholics of that Province with regard to the  education that a child receives in the schools of  the majority. The Hon. Chas. Fitzpatrick, late  Minister of Justice in the Dominion Government,  and himself an "Irish Eoman Catholic, spoke as  follows from his place in. the Quebec Legislature  on February 10th, .1893: "Oiir school "system is  the worst that can be found, in, any.'country j its^  evil effects" are everywhere apparent. The House  had been informed that in many parishes the  people were so illiterate that it was impossible to  find commissioners .able to read or writ,e.Ys-Ee  ���������himself knew that thirty'per cent, -of tne jurymen  in our law" courts could,��������� not sign their names.  Popular -education in this Province must be  thorough and. practical, otherwise we would never  be anything but hewers of wood and drawers of  water.-to the educated injnority: t"I am a Catholic,  pire of defence epuld,^and-.wbjifl^|f needful.' 7 antfit js from that standpoint tha������ I say our ele-  ovide a large contribution "of "Dreadnoughts'' "7 mentary system of education places us on a foot-  1 .th,e ��������� Present naval strength.���������''Standardof Em- ing of inferiority as compared with onr separated  ~ " brethren.   It is useless to hide this sad state of  CIVIC PROBLEMS  The "citizens   are   still   demanding "sewers."  -They are already expressing alarm at the prospect  of another  summer  without   them..   The  .Board of Works find themselves without funds  ���������to.put jn the sewers and without a scheme to  work to if they had the funds.   The situation is  1 critical and requires a strong hand to control it."  .-It ia positively senseless to run around the coun-  tryi promising sewers at once if outside districts  '-wdl vote for annexation.   It is arrant nonsense  I to tell those in the city that as soon as the .new  engineer arrives they will have relief.   This may  J serve to rouse a little applause' now, but will  '- Surely react to the confusion of those who state it. "  7 I The time has passed for "hot-air."   What is  ��������� wanted is hard; patient work.   We want those,  in authority to stop trotting around the district  * seeking the plaudits of their fellows and to get  down1 to business.     ' "       ���������  7* This * sewerage problem is one which will require years' to work out    Some will get relief  , soon j'some will be forced to. wait for a long"  r time.' H South Vancouver were annexed to-mor-'  row; it would not bring sewers any "nearer than  they are now. /-Annexation would only simplify  ,Uhei*fca*eial sideY of, the-problem; but would, not <  ^lan a system and install it" as if by magic.  The city has suffered from la,ck of foresight in  the past and there is no excuse for any further  delay.   Some one has said, "They would put a  thousand men to work to-morrow jf thev had  their   way."^., What   doing?    pigging   trenches  here, there and all over.   We must first plan out  the scheme and the public should not be fooled  any longer with specious promises of immediate  relief.   Except in a few cases, it will be impossible to give sewers to a large portion of, the districts now without them until the plans have  been made for a complete system.    When these  plans are complete, the first thing necessary will  be to construct the trunk sewers so as to provide  outlets, and this will cost millions, and we ask,  "Who is going to   finance   it."    Certain individuals, who talk more than they think, say, "We  have lots of money and we can finance it ourselves. ''  The fact is that there, is now before the City  Council enough by-laws to take over two million,  dollars more than our borrowing powers will  - allow-.--We are told-that next yearwe can add-  six millions to our borrowing powers. This is  true, but next year is going to bring with it its  own demands and burdens which will make that  six millions look sick.  There is only one solution to this problem, aud  that is to' devise a scheme whereby the Trunk  Sewerage Scheme can be financed independent of  the regular debt of the districts. In other words,  we must not allow this heavy demand to be made  on our credit at this time to the detriment of  regular street work and local sewer work. It is  all very well to stand up before audiences and  rouse applause by making promises and then  blame other people for inability to redeem those  pledges. It will not and is uot giving the sewers.  Personal and sectional feeling must be buried and  every effort made to carry out a permanent  scheme. In the meantime the public must study  the situation and not be misled by words, but  rather judge by the permanence of action.  affajrs any longer."  Not only does the hon. gentleman condemn the  Roman Catholic schools, but he pays a high tribute  to the education given in the Protestant .schools,  when he speaks of the "educated minority."' The  fact of the matter is that the Protestant Separate  Schools by giving a good secular education, are  in reality the public schools of the Pro\ inre of  Quebec.  Then let us take the testimony of a French  Roman Catholic. Mr. Godfrey Lanirlois. editor of  Le Canada, a French paper printed in the city oc  Montreal. In a speech delivered to th<^ Montreal  Debating ClubYon December 10th. 1906. he said:  "We are"provineialists because our schools make "  us so. National (public) schools would have developed national sentiment. "What are the means  to be taken to raise the minds of our people, of  our growing generation, above prejudices and  sectarianism"? Proper schools and proper education. . Are oiir schools what they ought to be?  No! In Quebec the Government spent $1.32 per  scholar on "elementary educationY' In Manitoba  the Government spent .$5.84-. and every other  province spent a much larger sum.than Quebec."  The remedy suggested by Mr. Langlois for the  improvement of the educational system of Quebec  was as follows:���������  (Continued on page 8)  Isolation Hospital  After several years pf wearisome' discussion a������������V  frequent changes, the question of a suitable sitsn  for the "Isolation Hospital" has been settled;-   ^  It has been a subject' which has occasioned7 "  much'bitterness and ill-feeling.{Whenever it tflsi" -  suggested tbat the Hospital be located in ajyyYY  given district, it would be the signal for a.atol^K-  or opposition which effectually blocked the moJCs*^  Last year Mayor*'Taylor thought he had dise#r-'/  ered a solution to the perplexing question ^py  placing it at the Admiralty Reserve oppositeJJj^r-^:1  *-uet, but,this proved to be a regular "boomeri^ttfk',^/  and resulted in the-most persistent hostility -tnrol Y  . it was finally-abandoned as unsuitable., Theniift \  ,no doubt the council .was wise in agreeing to &ir 7  change.

He had not,, however, the manlinea*h|0  openly state his charge, and "the Mayor' "sllvfM  him to proceed.without the slightest opposition',  despite the protests of the aldermen. This fe^ow  said in a letter (also verbally): t(i\//  "The matter of our offering a site has been considered by ns, and, while we have ample lanC  which ia on the market for much less    *    * <-;t  we feel it would be an unpardonable breach of  faith on our part with a large number of client*  to whom we have sold * * * We cannot  therefore offer the dtj any part of our property  *     * *"   At the-same time that thia.paf;  riot (?) was giving expression to these noble sentiments, another agent (Le Messuerier) was offering certain property in D.

The members of the Council had been forced'tb  listen to insult upon insult being heaped ppoa  them by this fellow McBeth, but had the satisfaction of seeing the tables turned at a later meeting,  when Alderman Stevens produced a certificate  from the Land Registry Office showing that tt*  property being offered by Le Messurier, the agent/  really belonged to the McBeth Arm, and while) he*  (McBeth) had been denouncing the Council,and!  saying he was too patriotic to offer a site for suchu  purposes, he had an agent at his elbow offering)  his (McBeth's) property. The public are thus''  enabled to properly judge of the value of'.ther  aspersion cast on the Council upon considering*  the source, and are quite safe in entirely exonerating the members from any suspicion of dishon-t  esty.

Any man who has the habit of beating his better, half will, after this, get  a. taste of his own medicine if he happens to be hailed before Judge Lan-  gelier in the Court of Sessions. For  the flrsttime in many years, a. sentence, with the additional sting of  the cat o* nine tails added to it, was  pronounced by His Lordship the other  day. He also was good enough to  warn, all wife beaters' that, if any of  .them ever appeared before him, they  would catch- the same punishment. . It  is - a - peculiar ��������� fact, but ~ none, the less  true, that almost every man criminally fears.the lash more than anything.

In  1897, only 21,716 immigrants came- to  Canada. , In 1900 the number rose to  49,149, while In 1909 it was 189,004.  Now it is well over 300,000.. Quoting  from figures recently compiled, the  Minister said that between April 1  last year and January 1,1911, no fewer  than 98,955 persons had come to Canada from Great Britain. The United  States had supplied 102,117 immigrants during the period named, and  Europe 56,828.  It is estimated that 100,000 Uni*~d  States settlers brought into the C.  dian West capital to the amount of  $50,000,000 last year.  2022 Westminster Ave.  Moderate charges  Estimates given  E������.t-**������*<***������***������������������.^^  I    t  '���������    .    ������l  ������'  ������!'������  South Vancouver Bakery  MAIN STREET  Cakes, Pastry Bread, Confectionery  Wedding & Birthday Cakes a Specialty  Sotirh fancouver Bakery, GEORGE HERRING, fnp  im 1 .".'.. . ������.������  2410  Westminster Rd  ROBBER TIRE WORK A SPECIALTY  teele c& mum  ���������CARRIAGE WORK; GENERAL BUCKSMITHINO  ^ HORSE SHOEING,   JO&BINQ  First  Class  SHQEMAK*  INQ and SHOE REPAIRING  yonwant, go to  PETERS & CO.  2511 Westminster Ave.  (Near Broadway)  We guarantee'our wortc to be as Rood  as any in the city.  jnmoB.  than they drank before.

It is true that the Dominion record  for drunkenness has increased, showing that, while our average population drinks less than before, our  population from the country to the  city and town, and through the influx  of a large immigration from countries  where there is more drinking and  drunkenness than in Canada.. We cannot afford to be led astray by any  self-complacency, or slacken our  efforts because those who would like  to thwart us assure us that we are  already sufficiently well off.  The great amount of drink still consumed in Canada, the great extent of  drunkenness which still prevails in  license localities, and the terrible  poverty and suffering that intemperance briars to many thousands of  homes, all cry loudly for effort even  more earnest and persistent than we  haTe hitherto made.  no   oppor  tunity of ..encouraging the   pi:':iic  accept this erroneous view;   :>:\i\    '..  newspapers take a special���������p^ '     _-. :  natural  pride  in  extolling   opposed virtues.

When all is said it is the mother  only, who is a better citizen than the  soldier who fights for his country.  The successful mother, the mother  who does her part in rearing and  training bright the boys and giils \ho'  are to be men and women of th e next  geneiation, is of greater use to the  community, and occupies, if she only  would realize it, a more honorable as  well as a more important position  than any successful man in it  Nothing in this life that is really  worth having comes save at the cost  of effort. I am glad when I meet men  who have fought for their country,  have served faithfully and well year  after year for their country at the  risk of their own lives; I respect them  because they have had something hard  to do and have done it wel.   When we  look back to the Civil War the men  whom we hold in honor are not the  men who stayed at home, but the men  who, whether they wore th e blue or  wore the gray, proved their truth by  their endeavor; who dared risk all  for "the great prize of death in battle," as one of our noblest poets has  phrased it; who spent year after year  at what brought them no money reward, at what might result in their  utter impairment of the chance of  their earning their livelihood, because  it was their duty to render that service In just the same way no life- of  self-indulgence, of mere vapid pleasure, can possibly, even in the one  point of pleasure itself, yield so ample  a reward as comes to the mother at  the cost of self-denial, of effort, of suffering in childbirth, of the long, slow,,  patience-trying  work  of bringing  up  Editor: H.

No scheme of  education, no social attitude, can be  right unless it is based fundamentally  upon the recognition of seeing that  the girl is trained to understand the  supreme dignity and the supreme usefulness of motherhood. Unless the  average woman is a good wife and  good mother, unless she bears a sufficient number of children so that the  race shall increase and not decrease,  unless.she brings up these children  sound in soul and mind and body���������  unless this is true of the average  woman, no brillancy of genius, no material prosperity, no triumpjhs of science and industry, will avail to save  the race from ruin and death. The  mother is the one supreme asset of  national life; she is more important  by far than ht'e successful statesman  or business man or artist or scientist.  There are exceptional.women, there  are exceptional men, who-have other-  tasks to-perform ro7 allition-to, not  in substitution fotf, the task of.motherhood and* fatherhood and the vtask'of  providing -the' home and keeping, if.  But* it" is the tasks connected-'witti  the-home that 'are the fundamental'  tasks of humanity. After all, we can  get along for the time,, being with" ata  inferior quality of success in-other  lines, political or business, or ofJ any"  kind; because if there are .failings' In  such matters we can make them good  in tbeV> ne?t generation;-but If -the  mother does' not do,hey duty there  will be no-next generation, or a next  generation that is'worse thap Hone-at  all., In other words, wo. cannot as a  nation, get along at' all if we haven't  the-right kind'of home .life. Such a  lite is not only'the supreme duty, but  also the supreme reward of dut3& ^Ev>  jry rightly-constituted woman-or. .man,  if she or' he is worth her  must feel that there. Is no such ample1  reward to be found anywhere in-life  as the reward of children, the reward'  of a happy family life.. _  I" abhor and condemn the man who  is brutal, thoughtless, careless, selfish  with .women, and especially with the  women of his own household. Tbe  birth-pangs make 'all men the debtors  of alf women: The man is a poor  creature who does not realize the infinite difficulty of th e woman's task,  who does not realize what is done by  her who bears and rears the children;  she cannot even be sure until tbe chil  dren are well-grown that any night  will come When she can have it en  tirely to herself to sleep tn. I abhor  and condemn the man who fails to  recognize all his obligations to tbe  woman who does her duty. But tbe  woman who shirks her duty as wife  and mother is just as heartily to be  condemned. We despise her as we  despise and condemn the soldier who  flinches in battle. A good woman,  who does full duty, is sacred in our  eyes; exactly as the brave and patriotic soldier is to be honored above all  other men. But the woman who,  whether from cowardice, from selfishness, from having a false and casu-  ous ideal, shirks _her_duty as wife and  mother, earns the right to our contempt, just as does the man who, from  any motive, fears to do his duty in  battle when the country calls him.  Because we so admire the good woman, the unselfish woman, the far-  sighted woman, we have scant patience with her unworthy sister who  fears to do her duty; exactly as, for  the very reason that we respect a man  who does his duty honestly and fairly  in politics, who works hard at his business, who in time of national need  does his duty, as a soldier, we scorn  his brother who idles when he should  work, who is a bad husband, a bad  father, who'does his duty ill in the  family or toward the State, who fears  to do the work of a soldier if the  time comes when a soldier's work is  needed. All honor to the man or  woman who does duty, who renders  service; and we can only honor him  or her if the weight of our condemnation is feltnby those who flinch from  their duty.   .   .   .  No mother can do; her duty in her  own home without genuine tenderness  of heart, genuine sentiment; but if  she has only sentiment and only tenderness of heart she may through folly do more harm than another could  through weakness. You must have the  tenderness, yon must have the sentiment; but woe to you and woe to the  children who come after you if that  is al that you have. With the senti  ment, with the tenderness of heart,  encourage the common-sense that will;  enable you to correct the - tenderness  when it becomes weakness and injustice. In. addition, cultivate what"'"in  the long run.counts for more than intellect, for more than sentiment, and  that is character; the sum of those  qualities which really maRe "up a  strqng,7,bj:av.e, :tender man or woman.

Mr. Cherry kearton, the naturalist,  has just, left London, for Agrlpore,  bound on a daring expedition in the  interests of cinematograph. Equipped  with an expensive photographic armament, it is his intention to obtain cinematograph pictures of tbe tiger and  home. Included in his equipment is a  new invention���������a cinematograph hand  camera, which, by means of a pneumatically operated gyroscope spinning  inside, eliminates vibration, and by  keeping the camera in one plane enables pictures to be taken from any  position or angle without the use of a  stand. Two years ago Mr. Kearton  penetrated the wilds of British Bast  Africa and obtained some remarkable  pictures,- every one of th em, with the  single exception of a rare species Of  monkey, being of beasts in their native haunts. As in the case of the lion  expedition, numbers of flashlight photographs will be taken at night, when  the tiger visits the water-holes, and  will be used to enable Mr. Kearton to  become familiar with the habits' of the  various animals he will encounter.   - .

FALSE  HAIR  CARRIES GERMS.  Stories which have been circulated  at different times of terrible diseases  caught from the wearing of false  hair are being-brought pretty close to  home at the present moment. Dr. J.  Laberge, of the Provincial Board of  Health, is about to issue a statement  to the effect that there is danger that  the plague which is causing Buch  frightful suffering and death in China  may be brought Into Canada by - false  hair. The officers of the health department are making inquiries at the  local'hair stores in order to discover  what proportion of the switches sold  by local dealers come from China.  The mien who; conduct the hair business state that, they import the. bulk  ot their goods from Germany, but they  add that Chinese hair is also on sale  here". It is claimed that most of the  corpses taken to the morgues'in the  plagues-stricken districts of China are  minus pigtails; and'the reason is that  the hair has been taken by agents of  the hair companies.'

Grain Growers' Success.  The Grain Growers' Association of  the three Trairie Provinces was formed a few years ago for the.purpose of  securing better protection for Canadian grain growers' interests. Subsidiary to this th ere was formed in  1906 ���������.theTGrain Growers', Grain Company, which has some 10,000 shareholders. The company last year .handled over sixteen million bushels of  wheat, and made profits of oyer $95,-  000,000 on a capital of $293,000,000.  In their first year t hey paid 8 per  cent., the second year 133 per cent;,  the third year 44 1-2 per cent., and the  last year 15 per cent. Last year the  company began to put aside heavy re?  seives, and' consequently paid less in  dividends.  Light, Heat and Power.  The Ottawa Light, Heat and Power  Company earned between.. 15. and 16  per cent, on its capital last year. The  annual report shows that the earnings  of the Ottawa Electric approximated  18 per cent., while those of the Ottawa  Gas were between 8 and 9 per cent.  The two companies together constitute the Ottawa Power Company. The  proposed lowering of electric, rates by  the city of Ottawa will mean a larger  consumption, and the earnings of .the  company are likely to expand, considerably in the near future.

A  native was standing on a step close  to the water, when he was suddenly  siezed by th e octopus. Three other  natives were also clutched by the*long  tentacles of the great creature, which  strove to drag them into th e water,  /where they would have been completely at its mercy. Help fortunately arrived in time to prevent that con-  lingency, and th e octopus was drawn  out of the water. It retained its grasp  on the men, however, despite the endeavors that were made to "chop off  its tentacles with spades. Only after  a long conflict was .the octopus finally  despatched.^- The adventure is without precedent in the anals of Capetown.  ���������-���������!���������  AERIAL POST IN INDIA.

One of the sports in England in late  winter is truffle hunting. A truffle  is a fungus which grows beneath the  surgace and is something like a mushroom. The hunters are assisted: by.  dogs whose sense, of smell is finely.:  developed. The ripened truffle has. a  peculiar odor. Truffle dogs are trained  to scent it. . The animals trot about  with their: noses to the ground./, On  scenting a truffle .they dig until it is  exposed. They seldom make a ^mistake. .       ' In  direct tax on cameras. In such historic spots as Pompeii, one has to pay  a small fee for each plate exposed.

A report issued by the Bureaa of  Mines places the total mineral production of Ontario for 1910 at $39,232,-  814.7 This Is an Increase of $6,251,439  over the output for 1909. The Cobalt  silver .'region and the Sudbury nickelj'  deposits were the chief producers. By^  its yield of silver last "ear ($15,436,-  99.4) Ontario gives Can. .a third place  among all the silver-producing countries of the world, Mexico and the  United States still holding the first  and second places. The yield of iron  for 1910 was 231,453 torn. The gold  mines of the Province turned out only  ing season will exceed a quarter of a  million pounds. Many of th e former  pupils have planted from thirty to  sixty acres of tobacco upon which, in  Rhodesia,, over ������20 profit per acre  can be made. So'far as the training  farm itself is concerned, it is estimated that 60,000 )ls. ot tobacco will be  cured this season. "  In addition to tobacco, the pupils on  the farm are instructed, under skilful  and energetic management, in the cultivation of maize,-fruitr and fibres,-and  in cattle ranching and dairy farming.  This systeri ot central training farms  is quite novel ln t he-Oversea Dominions. .The.fact that a young man with  moderate capital ��������� can go out to Rhodesia, and, at a comparatively nominal cost to himself, learn th e rudiments of local farming, is one which  ought to be more widely known.  vr"'     FO(R.^TH6' HOME.

We believe that the Government should appeal  to the people on this question, but we also think  that it would be much more equitable and just  to pass the redistribution bill first. Of qpurse, it  , is "politics" not to do this, but it does,not seem  consistent with the claims of the PremierCthat the  West is for Reciprocity.  ���������^The -West-will-almost double-its-representation  upon redistribution, and the West vis solid. >������(so  says Sir W.) for Reciprocity. Therefore, should  not Sir Wilfrid seek to have the support of the  new Western members? There are several interesting points in this, first, if the Government  go to the country before redistribution, it shows  they fear the West; second,' if the West, is solid  for Reciprocity and the Government. refuse them  the rights of full representation, then the Government cannot be sincere in wishing for the success  of pY -rocity: third, if the Government are  sincere in wanting to pass this Reciprocity BUI  and .use the West full representation, then it  cone: si vely shows that the Government does hot  that the West is solid for the Bill and into carry it through   the House   on Party  separate schools existed prior, tb confederation, a prescriptive right would  thereby    be    established-   to . these  schools; and If they were afterward*  abolished a, grievance would be established, and tbe parties affected would  have the' right of appeal to the federal  authorities to htfve tbe grievance remedied. ' It waa this clause.of the Act  which gave tbe dominion government  the opportunity of framing, the Remedial Bill of 1896 in'an effort to reestablish separate schools in Manitoba.  By the National School Bill of, 1890 tbe  Oreenway government did away with  separate schools and -established a national school system for  the   entire  province,, of Manitoba.   To "Fighting  joe" Martin must be given,a great deal  of credit for getting this bill into shape  and  getting  it  through  the  house.  Whatever mistakes ''Joe" may have  made.in his political career, there is  one question upon which he has always, been consistent, and that is/ the  question, of national'schools.   He has  always   been   opposed   to   separate  schools of any kind, and has stood for  th?lpj4ncJPlejrfJ!_eQ^  catlpnal   v affairs.

They carried their case to'  the, courts, until it finally reached the  privy council; and the privy council,  while refusing to give an order for the  re^establishment of- the schools, decided tbat a grievance existed,' and  tbat the Roman Catholics were entitled to the right of appeal to the federal government. They appealed to  Ottawa, and it was then for the dominion.government to decide whether the  circumstances warranted any interference with the educational affairs of the  prairie province. The federal government, counting on the Bolid support  of the Roman Catholic church; introduced the Remedial Bill, which aimed  tp'override, the wishes of: tbe great majority of the people of Manitoba and  re-establish separate schools., .-Then  ensued one of the most memorable debates in the history ,pf the; dominion  parliament.
