EDMONTON DETECTIVE RESIGNS Edmonton, Aug.- llin rcsul of squabble that has arisen between the City Council and the Chief of I'o lice over Detective Seymour facing a charge of assault, causing grievous bodily harm, the plain clothes man has placed his resignation in the hands of Chief Lance} The Council demanded Tuesday night that Lancey suspend Seymour, and Ihe Chief answered that he would stand by his decision to keep Seymour 'on Ihc staff, despite the Council, the ter for Edmonton and for the north country. This is one of the thoughts of J K Cornwall, M P P ior the Peace Hiver biought hack with him on his return last night from a weeks' trip into the north country. .The idea or paying seven dollars for transporting a bag of flour from the merchant here to the oven at Peace Rivei Crossing must appeal with vivid significance to anyone who ever kept house. To take that hag of liour tram here to Athabasca Land- ng costs. and heaven alone knows whether it is possible to get an experienced freighter to start out on the trail with any kind of a load these days Traiel on the Landing trail is nigh impossible The govern- ment must do something for the rail- way is not. yet transporting goods to the Lauding, it Is doubtful if it will oefoip winter sets in One that bag of flour seven days in which to make the nmetj miles to Athabasca Land the transportation afforded trekiug settler As It is, he lias to locate where he sticks To get into the promised land of the Peace toda> is purelj a test of the iittest Onls the man with the best oxen, with the strongest team, and the lightest load, Peace Rner Others keep straggling into the Peace River proper All are satisfied with the evidences of pros- perity which is to ho theirs Their dread is the consequences of. the pre- sent high cost of living brought about by thejilgli cost of tiansportation ing Taking it from the Landing on its seven-day boat trip to Grouard, a western end of Lesser Slave Lak. costs 1250 more Then that bag o flour meets with great adversity. I has to 'be freighted along the ivors trail in the whole north for a him dred miles from Orouard to 'Peace River Landing. That costs anothei 12.50, and takes seven dajs The Real Trouble Transportation is the trouble. Tho price of freighting is regulated by the cost of transporting. On n good trail freight costs less. On a rail so bad as the Grounrd-Peace liver Trail, only millionaires can af- ord to have their household roqui- ites transported. .Having a trail in he condition that this one is In pa.vs obody While adding .io the cost of he consumer of.the bag of flour It oes not increase, the profits earned y the freighter.- Indeed, present con- itions of tho trails In the north'pre ent freighters-'from being willing to art out with loads Cornwall says something should e done.
