His strange actions and conduct'in so many particulars made people who followed his actions at all closely agree with Dr. G-renfell when he said that the mind of the Arctic explorer was affected. Now, his soli- citor, who is also a very near friend, comes out and says that if the peo- ple knew Dr. Cook's mental and phy- sical condition they would pity rath- er than blame him. That altogether likely is the truth of the whole af- fair. Dr. Cook no doubt firmly be- lieves he reached the North Pole, but his belief is nothing more than an hallucination backed up by a great amount of knowledge and experienc that has enabled him to make Ms position plausible to the credulous public. By placing his data before the Uni- versity of Copenhagen Dr. Cook got friendly, if not partial, judges and their unequivocal denial of his claims Santa Clans says that Alberta's, was here last Tuesday surveying a stocking has been just about full alt j site for a coal shed for Mr. Richard- year, and he can see little more that j son. that the people can desire.

If the peopffc become careless, it is almost inevitable that the. council will become careless too. It has been said that the people are not afforded an easy means of ex- pressing their opinions, and we -be- lieve that to be true, in so far as the number of polling places are concern- ed. At tbe municipal elections there -were only two polling places, aad in the voting on the by-laws, one. That is far from sufficient.

Laugh At Lords; Fear Public House London, Dec. one has been raising trouble in the publishing trade over a story that pulp, of which a coneiderable quantity corses from Canada, would be taxed. Mr. Chamberlain, in a letter made public yesterday, says that he has nc authority to speak for the party on the question, but he. would suppose tha wood pulp would come under the heat of raw materials. The Liberals are grewing more con fident every day that proposed faxa tion of foodstuffs is'so unpopular tfcat it will neutralize which may accrue to the Conservatives from the cry "tai foreign, manufacturers." Alone, the latter cry would be dan- gerous to iberal prospects. At tfiis distance 'from date of poll- ing it would appear that in tlie final phase of the cantest all may depend on the ''effectiveness of the aid given by liquor' trade and the "big navy" party to the Conservatives. Liberals laugl at the-lords, but they fear the public house, even gold in free state are Whitaey, Tisdale, Mount Joy, Shaw and one or two other and extending down innto the Temagami district.
