Britain 'are working together la tryiug to end the Balkans war, and thus does the emergency receive a nawsty jolt. THE WEEKLY HERALD Published every Weitoesday-in istehto* njore-jwws. and contains � summary or the news of the week, local and district 1 year In advance .........51., j-months Id advance ..... Wc S months in advance........75c. The deatii of the Hon. James Young of Gait removes a man who in a .past generation filled a large sphere In th? public life of the province. In later years he was not known to the young men of Canada, but the story of his life will prove an Inspiration. Candidates for the aidernianic bye-election are multiplying so rapidly It is-now time'for definite-statements. Inaction will (prove -a losing proposition on polling;day.  The man who makes the biggest noise now will attract the lasting-attention. Charles O'Brien, M.P.P., paints a vivid picture of the "wage slave" i working In, the brick .yard for insuf-: flclent recompense, out'he stops short of presenting a way out of -the brick yard. \The\sum:totah of ^he work of Mr. O'Brien is to make men dissatisfied with conditions �without offering a panacea for the ills complained of. The Hferalct'doubts the story about the executives of the Liberal and Conservative -parties meeting in Rocky 'Mountain to agree on a man for'the' sole purpose of defeating the Socialist candidate. Of what avail would it be? If they succeeded at the next election in laying Mr. O'Brien low the game .would have to ,be repeated at each successive electidn. hnd that.l could nastily We arranged. x . v V The fact that Germany and Great Britain are working together In trying to prevent a continuance .of the Balikans war presents : the most 'pd-JJ tent reason why the two great powers j will never clash. Finances; and com.| merce are back of their action in the Balkans and flnnnce would be equally successful .in preventing the two nations coming to a clash.' Commerce with its 'widespread and . enormous ramifications is making; .war., between the gTeat powers more improbable all the time. Just fancy, tho .United ftates and Great Britain fighting'and estroytng millions of dollars-worth of property in .which big, finance-is interested. ' It would not" db allowed by the money men, and no more will it be allowed as between Germany and Great Britain. A People's Playground IT'WILL NOT BE? many fore the winter will be past, and it cannot be too early to look for-, TTvaTd to the Joys of summer. There-���; fore we run no risk of being accused of being in too anticipative a mood i'.wheft"we" offer Some 'suggestions as ��>.: to utilizing Henderson Park for the *l-people's benefit; The carrying out of'- tie nature of an extravagant expenditure. In fact they can not^only be made to pay for them-', but will serve as a source of revenue; directly by a small charge, per hour for. their use, and indirectly by adding to, the street car revenue �la tie"matter of added fares.

There are those whp see in the decision an element of injustice,.and argue,that there is - no .great difference between a man runningja race and receiving twenty" fr oriflftyifdoHars for."rhlB ^efforts, and \ man* reiJeMng a gold watch worth 'twenty or fifty dollars.'' "Further, aB ihewTorontb fMail .and Empire con-i 'tend.a', the distinction between ama-v . leurism' and professionallem as the I ^eat.'bt the �world sees it is one of the (type between Tweedledum and Tweed 1 %0i'S' *,' �...... � ** t* /'jve feel, sure everyone will not professionalism; it has its own side of the- case, and is necessary fpr setting a etahdard of excellence. TJut to arg\ie".-;that''sthe whole spirit of sport shoujd ;bp actuated and dominated by a thought of dollars and cents cannot but .tend to destroy the spirit which "encourages to ejjcel. It will be .only/.adding worshippers to the too prevalent cult of the god Mam mon, and so much the worse for sport taken all round. � , ^ It. wagonly a few days ago that there happened the anniversary -of (he institution of the Victoria Cross,, one Of the highest and noblest' honors an individual could achieve, and what' Is its. intrinsic, value? Merely a mere pauble; n^ade from the metal of a historic piece of cannon. Yet the glamor of it has actuated men to deeds which have, gained the admiration of the jiyhole iworld;;. and if the reward was :a pecuniary &ne it would be safe to ;Sp:y the;)fobl|lfy of- the deed would be entirely lost. So in sport which calls exertion of what is best in jV'Jan^39 and whose notable book, 'Public Men and Public Life in Canada," was-published only a. few days ago, was one of the few survivors of the old guaxd-of.Reform.parliamentarians. He was born In Gait in 1835, and his wife is an elder sister of W. K. McNapght.of- Toronto. He started to learn the printing'business when he was and at 18 was editor and publisher of the -Galfc.Reformer.' He was elected a member of the firsT parliament of Canada in -the year of Confederation, 1867, and had a parliamentary career of twenty years-fifteen in tbe House of Commons and five in the Ontario legislature," representing both South Waterloo and � the - neighboring constituency, of jtfotth Br^.nt. In 1853 he became a'member of Oliver Mowat's. cabinet^ andj^served therein several years......_______ Originator, of ,H.ansa'"c1 Mr. Young,'though few people know it, wag the.-.orlginator of Hansard, the official record 'of every word uttered' Iri the House of"CommanB:TPor'ScJme time-i g.fter-.fCpnfederfltionj'pij.-record was_.kept.of the^s proceedingsj.^ They wereV^reported: ?in tfjte newspapers, twisted and colored igxeatly in those daykof party bias,, ,Cases ajose where much\ confusion ..resulted- from mem-, bers being mosqurtoed. The house was in the same position as the provincial legislature is no;*v Mr. Young( suggested, Hansard, !t^.-committee wasi formed and; officlai ". records were; thereby established. Friend of Edward Blake Mr.^oung was a room-mate of the' Hon. Edward Blake and the late David Mills at Ottawa during .the sessions' of the first Dominion ^House. He was; also a gTeat friend of George Brown,' and often "'toured-.'the^ province with him, for he was one of the strongest stump speakers of those days. Mr; Young had special qualifications as a political historian,'as'he always kept a diar^^of parliamentary events and was familiar with-all'tbe leading politicians of his - time. He often wrote letters to' the Toronto newspapers commen ting' on � current political questions, : with- all: of -which' he was closely famlllau. When these letters appeared- he was deluged with correspondence from-old-tlme Liberals who remembered rand honored his long service to party hnd 'country. Until a short .time- ago Hon. Mr. Young. was still:, active in- business. He was president of the Gore Mutual Fire Insurance Company, of Gait, and .was regularly a.\ his desk. He. was ala.o a- director of the Confederation Life,' and almost every Wednesday he .could, he came to Toronto to "attend the.weekly board meeting.'.

His book, "Reminiscences of ttie Settlement'of "Gait and the Township of Dumfries," / is one of the; few valuable records, qf early local histCTy of Ontario's most interesting days. Mr. Young's- residence, "Thornhill," at Gait; is-a beautiful old home; surrounded'by spacious lawns and gar .dens-ra -suitable, - comfortable, and dignified abode.
