DO la advance. year In advance PROPOSED REDISTRIBTON PA1PABLE CASE OF 1ERRYMANDER1NG Stated Attempt to Spread Edmonton anvith its usual prompln held, at which an enquirj- was ordered into tlie lolls charged for carriage of freight west of tire Great Lakes, and the onus of proving whether the rales in Eastern Canada discriminated against those in Western Canada was qrijhe carriers. Since that date sixty-two hear- ings have taken place in nil the principal cities towns of Western Canada, besides those that Jdok pla'ce in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa; 190 jtlays were occupied at these hearings; 71'wil- nesses were examined: 158 exhibits covering 4870 Jiages, filed; 6148 pages of evidence, embracing folios, were taken down. The last hearing look place in December, 1913. The decision was announced on the 7th instant. f. Considering that the. Christmas holidays fol- Jrjwcd the last hearing, Mr. Draylon has prao- occupied only thrjee months in reviewing !lhe enormous mass of evidence and maze of sta Vjistics submitted.to his board. t. I. 'Taken altogether, reviewing that jjlie board mentions in its judgment, the only con- itiusioii" can be that Chairman Draylon and his j associates have first rendered a prompt and de- denied official recognition by the world powers; with a reputation stained by the-asia'ssinalion of Madero, he cannot lead the republic out of the dark depths into which it has fallen. H will take some stronger and kindlier hand; it will lake some modern wise just man who is actuated by loyalty to his'country'and to is people rulher than by the spirit of greed and ust for fame lhat seems to actuate men.of Huer- a's type. Let us hope that out of the present riils such a man will rise.

TI1E. story of the Mexican situation ns told to Herald renders yesterday by Captain (lon- tilcx of-the famous liotise uf Gonzalez makes OTHER We read somewhere not long' ago fliat "a grape fruit is a lemon that had a chance and look advantage of it." If this be the case there is probably hope for some of us. .We know a fev. lemons that sadly need just such H chance. They are people concerning whom Ihe general verdicl is, "Good, mil Guardian. Here's Dr. Kdwards, of Fronlenac, coufes along and advocates in tiie Commons the raising of the InrifT on everything the farmer produces It takes some long-headed mathematician fo fig ure out just where we are at nn tnriff matters ii Canada just at the News Telegram. Mr. Bordcn's newspaper friends are claiming credit for the government because the Mailwny Commission planed off some of the inequalities in western freight roles. If the government is going to annex credit for what Commission did in Ihis respect, the government mus! also accept responsibility for the Comnliission's dec- laration that discriminative rnlc-s in compared with are justified. If the Coiiimission only a sort of executive body- working under government direction, Ilien the government must answer for what it does. If the Commission is an independent body, then Ihe government cannot claim credit for its good I'lillctiu. S. B.
