The Herald understands the poat-offlce dopartnient cannot coq^pel the C. P.

An appeal from twenty or more towns, should be certain to warrant action on the part of the government. The Board of Trade should take Up this matter without delay. CDITORIAt NiyrEs.

Theodone Roosevelt, Jr., son of the president and a Harvard sophomore, is joining the "Dickies," tho most mysterious secret organization of all the fi-atemlties at Cambridge. Tha initiation ceremony lasU nearly a week, and young Roosevelt began to perform his obligation stunts yesterday morning. Cnder guoid of one High Dickie, a student named Harringtc/n, Roosevelt appeared in Harvard Square shortly after stin-rlse, clad in a gray summer suit, blue ilahncl shirt and white canvas skeMw and bare-headed. His costunie would have been ideal for the miiddie of August, and bundled up eitlzeas gazed u|ion it in open-mouthed amaze ment and wonder. Young Roosevelt Orst visited Harvard Square lunch ro�im, where bo broke his fast on mustard pickles, hot buttermilk, fresh raw oysters and maple syrup, ahd warm squash pie. His gastronomic feat was witnessed by a great crowd. After, he had finished with a dip in the (Jnger bowl. In which hentlne was substituted for water, ho again appeared in the isquaro, and with & great bundle of morning new.' year ^ will lessen the area of coal lands in the hands of the Oovernmjnt and 'in -crease the area impaimi by private ownership and control?

If we allow thi.s coal to pass unreservedly into jiri vate. hands it may at any time he-come as inaccessible as if it were at the north pole. Title deeds may be-; come greater obetaclea than oceans of ice. Ontario took wi-se precaution in r^rving gold, silver and white ptao for the Ijemjflt of tho public. Safeguards in the public intcrcsthave also been placed around th'j "white coat", of. NittgarA Falls.

Xo such questionable departure need be feared. Ownership will give the Governuicnt a control that wHll insure a continuous supply at fair prices by tho operating companies. This is all the public desire, and it is what tliey have aright to demand. Such a result' will be beset with suffleient dimculties, own if the Uovcmment. should act promptly and reserve ail tlie coal de -partts not already alienated. It would be a serious n�i�tafeo to create more obstacles by allowing the remaining coat measures to drift into the hands of private Indiv-idunli cor|>orations. fore kfndiy occcpt this little gift wo o/Tor you, with our very best w^slws for your future happiness wherever you are and especially that you may. ot.joy a very happy Christmas.
