OUR POINT OF VIEW The railway companies, with char- ters in the West, ask for an extension of time; The people would rather have tho time shortened and the lines ex- tended. An evidence of the growth of Alber- ta is the ever-increasing length of the legislative docket to be attnded each year. Every business mail iu the city should attend the Board of Trade gto blame for the Whoop-Up disaster? That is the per- son for the law to get after. Punishment of the guilty party can- not save the lives that were lost, but it will be a potent means of saving PLACE THE BLAME The Whoop-Up disaster calls for the strictest searching in ordbr that the blama for it may be fastened where it ought to be, and that those to blame may be punished. It is not enough that a coroner's jury should se- verely censure the company for put- ting men in charge of such hazardous who knaw nothing about, it. It is not enough that those dependent up- on the victims who were killed or those who were maimed should re- cover damages through the courts. These done, justice will not be satis- lied Some cae was criminally negligent. Upon somebody's shoulders rests the responsibility for the death of four men aad probably more. Justice de- mands in the interests of the safety of human life, for the prevention of such carelessness in the future, and for the wholesome effect it will have on corporations and their oficials, justice demands that the responsibility for those deaths be fixed where it proper- ly belongs, and that the person respon- sioie, whoever he may be, be punish- ed. Justice does not demand that some underling be made the scapegoai to save his superior. Some one erred grossly in judgment or in the moral regard for the safety of a score of his fellowmen. That person, whoever it is, should be made to pay the penalty. An investigation will be necessary to find the perso'a finally responsible. surely happen if this one goes un- punished. month. Here there is quite a large j many lives from similar disasters that possibility of variation in the dates of polling. Lastly with regard to polling day uself. In the case of a borough, other than a district borough, the poll may ue held whenever the returning officer directs, but not more man three days may elapse between nomination day ana polling nay. In the case of the counties and district boroughs not more than six clear days may elapse between nomination day and polling yOU HAVE NO DOUBT UJ3AKU a good deal of talk about British Columbia Fruit Lauds. Everybody who has spoken to you who knows the true conditions has spoken favorably Isn't that so? The fact of the matter is that B. C, Fruit Lund is going to be a big tiling in the next five years. It simply can't help it. It will produce fruit, it has the .MARKET and the climate. We studied the B. C. Fruit Land situation thoroughly before we invested our money. We are convinced of its future. And from our knowledge of investments wo Know that B. C. Fruit Lands will live up to our jnost sanguine expectations. They will make money for every-one who invests now. It is indeed the opportunity of the hour. Our Fruit Lands on the Arrow Lukes will eventually become very valuable because of their choice location and because they do not require irrigation The payment of down and per acre per month secures a fruit farm. Call and pick out a LO-acre plot. There is surely no better investment on the market. Furthermore you can become independent quicker by buying and working a fruit farm in B. C. than by any other means because two acres cleared and put into small s'tuff will give you a living while your trees grow to dollars and your land increases in valuo. Professional Cards MEDICAL DR.

The person responsible for ihe cause of economy M t-iat endangers lives, whether in the mariner mentioned above, or as at Webbwood, by reducing the number of section hands, is also blameworthy. Where the blame lies can only be determined by a searching court in- vestigation, and such should be made. THE REASON WHY To a great many Canadians it has been a puzzle to understand why the British elections were so iong drawn out and not all held on one day as in this country. There is much history and not a little tradition and preced ent in the story of how it. all rame anout. Tht> Manitoba Free Press ths other day gave as briefly as it could well be done, how it is that tho elec- tions are held as they arc. It Writs for Uritish elections are all issued from London at the sumo time, h'it naturally do not arrivo at their des- tination on the same day. This is one source of variation in the duu-s of the polls. .After receipt, of the wrif, the re- turning officer, in the rase of bor- oughs, must give notice of the ek.-ct.ioni either on the day of the receipt of the! writ or on the following day. in tho case of The counties and district bor- oughs the returning oficer must give notice within two days after tho re- ceipt of the writ. Thus in tne ease oV the counties and district boroughs an extra day is allowed for the giving of notice of the electron. Here creeps in another possibility of variation. Tho county divisions, it may be explained, are electoral divisions into which the English, Scotch, Welsh and Irish coun ties are divided. The borough areas, of course, lie withm the counties, hut have nothing to do with them as far as parliamentary representation is con- a common thing for them to boast of the large; number of ballots they have casi. For obvious reasons plural vot- ing is more lavorablc to the Unionist party than to either the Liberal or Labor party. "One man, one has long; been a plank in the Liberal platform and the party is undoubtedly favorable to all elections beJng held on one day.
