In speaking of Imperial Xederatioi Henri Bourasstt, leader of the NiUloi ulist party In :put question which is too often forgotte by laymen in this country. Comuioni The Councifi Dccifibri THE CITY COUNCIL has come to ttjs one and only decision which it could take, with regard to the charges pending over the held of the Chief of Police. In electing that these charges should be substantiated or otherwise, before' a judge the STI- prejne Court, it his tafeeai a step will meet wilh'the approval'of the citizens at large.' The indictment, 'when reviewed, is far more serious than at first antici- pated, and it essentially requires to tw Drought before a judicial tribunal. "Whatever the decision given it must prove satisfactory to the public, and the-council will thereby save itself, it have decided to conduct the investigation, anything in the way of insinuation which a decision from such a body, considering the circum- stances, might possibly be created. The members of the council free themselves from a responsibility which- they are not compelled to un- dertake. TbiB. they themselves have realixtMl, in they have adopted. To meet the spirit oi' jus- tics the valtW'Of sworn testimony is not only important in other ways, but it is ;the only safeguard, for the ac- cuswi, should he Ue innocent. It will tend to'make specific and I'p-that the attendant "risk- will toe too much to allow the same to be lightly made. A 'judicial .investigation was the which appealed to the Her- ald from the inception of'the scandal. But, ihdependen'tly-of this, we mas assert-that the council in its decision has followed .the lines of wisdom. It; is difficult for the-moment to see why'the council'appears to have aban- doned the prosecution of the charges made against the other members oi' the police force, but we, trust that some explanation will be forthcoming. The express .companies.seem -to dej ight in antagonizing the It s hard to understand how the big cor- uorationE persist in running counter o public opinion.

In this, we are in accord with the views of our morning contemporary "with regard to the advisability of a 'police commission. In the choice of such a commission, to be composed of the mayor, the city magistrate and a judge of the District court, the city of Lethbridge will be following the plan adopted by other and larger 'cif-ies, and in which such a comiuis- 'sion'has been {ound to of value. It does not require much in the way of reasoning to point out that a body "such as the police iorce should be free from aldertnanic influence. The is ..a fleeting one, and which periodically authority1 at 'best in the changes responsibility is in a large measure removed. Without appearing to hint at the smallest aspersion against the city matter by whom compos- ed, it :must appear, taking a common- sense'view "of it, that aldennanic con- trolis not good for the morale of the force. There'is in it too much of the intruding of the personal element, which iinder the circumstances can- not1 well" We have no intention of enlarging on the same, but we have; had a sufficient instance of this. Last, but: not leaal, there' will be remoVed any temptation for currying 'avor 'amongst the members of the force ..for( which- the present system affords a temptation. Taking all things togs'ttier-'ft is evident ihat the only solution "of the present trouble, and a measure for preventing a repe- .ition of the "same, is the adoption of i, 'police' commlisjon on 'the lines Headquarters'for Teddy (Monetary Times', Wall Street .foiirna'l suggests that .Moose Jaw- would -make .ipjiro- priute head quarters for Colonel Roose- velt's moose, half jaw.

And coming jo, under different atmospheres, it has certainly caused some perplexity as to its real import. Those who gave the word when sponsored by President Taft, in his i'ftmoiiB letter to Mr. Roosevelt, a meaning all their own, must be sonie- -vnat confused 'when they hear .Premier of Canada, whom they have come to regard as -the saviour of the cruel fate of being separated from th-a Empire, and being annexed to tho United States, declaring in England Canada was not an "adjunct" of Great Britain. We do not for one moment accuse the any thought of severance from Great, Bri- tain, which if the lyord "adjunct" is to fecefve the assumed Taft interpreta- tion 'he; verily, be guilty of We only .draw attention to it to point out the fallacy -of giving g. W0rd a fanciful -meaning for the purpose of .scoring a, 'point.' "Adjunct" 'evidently does not mean a. part of the whole aa used 'by Premier Sorden, for if it carried1 that -meaning, then certainly Canada would not be, according to the Premier, .a part, of the British Umpire. th'erfrfdre, hoV .shall we interpret it aright? In' making, t query we innit- come the conclusion that It s best to. leave the meaning of it .within the brain of its originator in each and not from our oWn de- ductions. If Mr. Borden used the -word1 "ad- junct" in the sense credited to Mr. Taft, then Canada would-be certainly cuttfng itself adrift from all the rights and. accorded to Great. Britain by other nations. But surely this the Premier does not hope for. foolish to think that ie docs.
