Daily reports are commejioing to carry stories of French gains rather than Ger-niaa repulses. Since their last great offensive at Verdun collapsed, little in the offensive line has been done by the Germans, and the French 'are slowly but persistently retaking lost , ground and gaining new positlofis from the exhausted Huns. The Germans are conSning. their .ictivity Ch.efly to artillery bombardments. From the war fronts yesterday attention was turned to the plots of malcontents in the British House of Commons to overthrow the coalition government but Premier Asquith, returning from Italy, made a rallying speech in the house, and his enemies were completely routed. taking of evidence. It cam compel the witness to testify or can itnprison him if he refuses to answjBr the questions addressed to blm. ^here Is no excuse for declining to tell the whole truth before a committee of the house. The statute under which a royal commission proceeds lays down a differ^ ent principle. wlti^esses may be compelled to attend, it the royal commission, which has no executive olllcials, can find tUeni, they can escape the necesslt)- of teatlfylng. The law says: " or witness shall bo compelled to answer any question by his answer to which he mlglit render himself liable to a criminal prosecution." We do not believe that this solution of the question will suit the people of Canada. What is ncetled Is a [nil. free, and thorough Inquiry, from which the entire truth can be gathered, and as a result of which the offenders in this culminating crime will be adequately punished. Such an inquirj-is not given. ' SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1910 A POPULAR TOORE COLLAR TOOKE BROS, LIMITED MONTREAL lEIilGE liEF : mmm (CoxTiNUEu: ynoM Eront Page) Donald Fraser, senior, one of Xew J3runswick'3 most pron^lnent lumbermen, died at Frederlcton. Jame.s B. Augell, preside^it emeritus of the university of Michigan, died at Ann Arbor on Saturday. He had been critically ill for more than a week. Customs returns at several ports show large gains for the month of March and the fiscal year. There are great possibilities in the �dye industry, according to Prof. Bos-well, who addressed the Royal Canadian Institute, at Toronto. Mr. Edward G. E. Folkes. 420 Indian Road, manager for Home Smith. & Co., was � drowned in the Humber river, Toronto, from a canoe while assisting linemen to install a telephone system.

OIL^tbRI.LLlNQ' OPERAVioi^S MEAN MUCH The/Herald ' .would hate to see a reijreUtioii^pf the boom which.attended the^brlnglngln of a smalHweU in the-Calgajy'fleld repeated in this district. But'when one sees the enormous project being Hindertaken by London capitalists in the field to the south, one (eels :that there �n-ill be something accomplished without fear that the Calgary boom will be repeated here. Prom what we can gather the efforts being made to locate oil south of Cardston are legitimate in every way, and Southern Alberta, we are^ sure, welcomes the men who are going about their undertaking In such a businesslike way. Efforts such as that we refer to are needed to develop the natural resources of this �Tirovince, and we cannot do too much to encourage them. ^COMMISSION OR COMMITTEE-WHICH? There are many of both shades of .politics who are prone to blame Sir Wilfrid Laurler for-^his insistent efforts to have a parliamentary committee .-probe the Kyte charges instead of . the royal commission as agreed upon ;by Premier Borden. The following -from the Toronto Globe may throw Bome light on the question: An eminent authority on the respective merits of a royal commission . .and a committee of the house in prob-; r-''Ing charges of wrongdoing in public 47*'^ puts thc case thus: 4. The reference of the scandal to a ^ royal commission of. two judges to '^^nqulre and report upon the facts will ^!j)0SBlbly strike everybody at first (.blush as eminently fair. An observnr "who has not closely Inquired into the ..^meaning of this solution or who has AOt compared it with the Investiga-'Siion by parliamentary commltteB will �j|)e apt to conclude offhand that noth-' Ving could be better.
