The Police Inquiry' TJROM .MAI" lie .-gathered i' X it appears that the decision of the city council as to referring itha investigation of the police scan- ;dal to a Supreme Court judge is by no iineans final. Reading the substance 'of .Mayor Hatch's interview, published in our issue of yesterday, it looks as if the council were stampeded into immediate decision by ihe action of C. Ki Harris, who appeared on behalf of Chief Gillespie. The to he brought up be- the council again on Monday, and the apparent went of unanimity has in it the flavor of -faction which is to ie regretted. The whole difficulty ap- pears to be that in the decision come to, TO make the investigation judicial certain people imagine that it implies an assumption of guilt on the part of those who were in favor of this in- vestigation. This is further accentu- ated by the fact that nothing has been said with regard to the other two officers suspended. But to refer to the main point it would be absurd to imagine that the choice of a more dignified tribunal is. in any way an aspersion on the man against whom the charges are made. A vindication, should it come 'about, at the hands of a judicial arbitrator, would be far more satisfactory to averybody, including the person, chief- ly-concerned, than any decision arriv- ed at from a purely local body. As it is the council appears to be in two minds as to the gravity or otherwise 6f the offences charged, anil this doep not speak well for the commendation of any agreement ultimately brought ab'out. the objection fhiv a judicial emiuiry means deia> and that the sus Chief of Police would have to bear the onus o{ charges made longer, than necessary, this is, more or less, sentimental in that he is by no means las yet accounted guilty, and no one :has a right to look askance at him uu: iil the charges are definitely proved.

That the indignation is called for may 'be allowed by the re- "ference. to the treaty granting "enual terms 'in'Th'e use" of flie tanal-tfl-tho-flags -of- all-'Jiations, and gratified by the American Senate elev- en years ago. If the proposal of the Senate augurs 'a discrimination hi favor m' American in the final arrangement, there jia bound .10 he a good deal of trouble, and possibly means may be used as a .'weapon of retaliation both oh the part, 'of Great Britain and Canada which it affects. That both countries .have this weapon at their disposal (may be thus shown. In the case of ,Canada theve are her artificial water- ways from the Atlantic to the Great Lakes constructed at a great cost, or, Vis an authority puts it, at a larger ex- penditure relative to population or re- sources than the United States will niaXe at Panama, the cost of mainten- ance and improvements also being relatively larger. Through these cost- ly, waterways the vessels of the Unit- ed States are allowed'.to go'through toll-free. What Is more the United ;States tonnage through ".the Welland Canal is larger than the Canadian. An article in the New York World advocating a free Panama Canal -speaks the Canadian canal policy ,and pertinently asks the question: r''Can the United States afford to adopt a Panama Canal policy less generous fo Canada or the nations" than this 'Canadian policy is to the United As. to Great Britain, it can do. nineli in the'way of Yhe 'reduction of tolls through the Suez Canal, and KO divert- ing traitic. to counteract the usefui- nea's of the Panama. Canal as a com- mercial enterprise. In this, regard showing that the matter of compara- tive tolls may have a good deal to do as to "the use of either canal, we may draw attention to the statement made by Dr. Emory H. Johnson, and used as an authority in an article on Panama Canal tolls in the Monetary Times. Dr. Johnson considers that it 'would be desirable to make the Panama tolls lower than those at Suez, and to sell coal'at attractive prices at Panama ia order to ensure bringing to Hie canal the major share of the commerce between 'our Atlan- tic seaports and Asiatic seaports from Singapore to Yokohama. The matter of reprisals, though they may appear fanciful, are notwith- standing the in- dignation of the nations concerned be thoroughly aroused. All authorities seemvagreed that n free Panama Canal to all nations ia the best, commercial policy, so far as the United StaUa ia concerned. To state the view's of '.Mr. John Barrett, director-general of the Pan- American Union, it would mean the increasing of the commerce of the United States in ten years to fifty times the cost of operation, mainten- ance and interest. It will, likewise, destroy all possibility in any shape or manner of monopoly in inter-oceanic traffic. Lethbridge owns a Kiltie Bane which is famous over a trail thej blazed down through Colorado last fall. But that trip was made In bor rowed plumes, and if there is any thing a Scotchman doesn't like it's to borrow something and have to pay it .back. So this spring the Kiltie Baud touched the city for enough to buy a full turnout for dress rehearsal sions. The -.kilts. were ordered from a firm somewhere amongJhp heather mouths but far no one has steu them heie of Trade is interested in those kills to the extent of half the cost, and at .1 recent meeting some- cne rose to remark that they would like to see the color the tartans. ''How were they he en- quired. "By It was then the 'was of the hoard got in his licks. "By mail, you he answered. "They couldn't come by mail. They weren't 'mail' attire." things get. going right-at Board ot Trade meetings and every- one is feeling that Lethbridge'is the future centre o! the universe they get funny sometimes, and pull something. The other night Dad :La- throp was. telling'about in- dustry In the south. What, he doesn't know about hogs isn't in the books.

This breath from the poppy kingdom gete his claim to notoriety from his name, which isn't, in Tom, Dick, and Harry ttegory at all, at all. Lethbridge's aristocratic truck snr' dener, who passes cut the beans at the 'hack door, has a name like the latest dish from handle is Monsieur Lang Louer. A' good one is told of one of. the descendants of.Alberta's original red men who landefl In the provincial jail here a month or so ago. This particu- lar native ".Milk in the Face" by name, if the story told is correct, strayed In- to Macleod one day during the suminei and in -some manner got next to some- one's cache, of liquid joy. For awhile the joy was properly imconflned and Miik-iu-The-Face blew down the main street sailing under full canvas. Mis career was suddenly checked however, by the untimely appearance of a burly cop. and the man with the Milky face and the whiskey jag foirhd himself in the coon. Next .morning, after the fumes had disappeared .'from bis clouded-brain, the.Indian made h debut in, policy .court circles, and. was given a month' in jail without the option of a fine.. Such ignominious treatment nettled the'feelings of the -brave redskin, and he vowed that.on his return to life own "would make such a grand entrance' as would put David Befasco himself to shame. lie was ax-good little Indian while working In the, Hotel de Rivers, .east ot" the city., au.d. so was put to work, making good roads for the farmers. At the end of his enforced labor. Milk- i-a-the-Faee was presented with fifteen dollars which he had earned from the a ticket to Macleod, and paternal advice 'from his host. He was arjpjly Indian when he hit the depot at but he wasn't touching booze. His heart was aqt r-. i to the reserve? Not that Indian. That" would be like ad- mitting defeat, "lie must impress liis; native brothers somewhat differently.! .Now, just what would impress MIIk-in-the-Face knew. He hied himself to the .nearest garage, produc- ed his wad to show that he was.all to the merry, paid over ten of his hard earned dollars, and climbed in aound for his native stamping ground Like a Vanderbilt he swept down on the camp where the tribe was sojourn- ng for the time being. Thinking that the Great White Chiei .himself was coming to pay-a visit the whole tribe ned out en .masse to welcome the visitor in the benzine wagon. Im- .gine their surprise when they found it was only the disgraced Mllk-in-the- Face, who only a few weeks pre- viously had been led so Ignominiously away. It-was a complete triumph for the erring brother, but the inmates ol he neighboring teepees are still won- lering where iMilk-In-the-Faco raised the mon. OUR POINT OF VIEW The navy question should IJG kept out o? politics. It will be a difficult iiiaiter .to formulate a policy, however that will'meet that requirement. Lethbridge should follow the devel- opment of flax raising closely. From Ms expansion we should be able to get several important industries.
