In all conscience, to war- rant the demand, and if that is not enough the tales brought back by special police who worked during the bandit hunt adds the finishing touches. As we. said tefore, we do not blame the provincial police who are undertaking to enforce law and order there. It Is "very evident that they not been given the organization to undertake the task which Is a gi- gantic one. One or two police scat- tered at various points in the Pass is not enough the condition which Is' well known to have existed, it will take determ- ined, concentrated effort to root put .Vie trand of lawlessness which Is rampant.

TARIFF CERTAINLY REQUIRES; REVISION. It is no surprise to read that the wesUm farmers intend putting all kinds ot evidence befofe tha tariff commission about the iniquities of protection. Tim evidence is easy to set and the farmers have accumulated plenty of it. It must not be overlook- ed that the commission represents a government that has a tariff' plank calling for the "stabilizing ol legiti- mate industries" and "encourasement for the establishment of new indus- tries essential to the economic devel- opment of the nation." It will thus he seen that proteclion is one of Its principles. The com- mission may suggest a lowering of the duties, but that it will wipe them out to any eitent need not bo ex- pected. .It is also true they will not be eipccted to satisfy the low tariff views of the farmers and most western people; if they attempted to, then they would lose their strong right hand In Eastern Canada. The tariff needs revision; it needs lowering and on many items it re- to contend with! to bsi wiDea entirely. What ever tariff we have should he Intended primarily for raising revenue and it should not be permitted to interfere with the development "of our greal natural resources.

Tho slogan of the organization is "Non-use and .noil-sale of Tobacco." A vigorous campaign will be inaugur- ated among the young boys and men with tho above end in view.
