Secretary McNicol delivered THE DOG NUISANCE The experience people of. Antario have -vrtth what might be called an epidemic of mad dogs is one that is likely to lead to legislation.that should have been passed years ago. The dog is the only animal of any size that is allowed by law to roam absolutely at Ms own sweet will, there being; no law to say that he shall or shall not go any particular place or under any particu- lar conditions. The provincial authori- ties have decreed that all dogs must be muzzled or chained. Naturally there is a big objection from some, es- pecially farmers, who believe a dog is useless as a cattle dog if he is muz- zled. But it is likely that the safety of the multitude will be considered more than the convenience of the few. A dog is valuable sometimes and is a good pet sometimes, but for every dog, which is one or the other, there are a dozen that are absolutely useless or worse. Of all the domesticated ani- mals in Canada there is none more de- structive than a dog and yet it is the only one that is allowed absolute free- dom. He "has his uses but not one in a hundred is kept to drive cattle, for a watch dog or for the children to play with. Dogs should not be allowed to run at large. A muzzle or a chain should accompany every dog and a re- sponsible human "being should be at the other end of the chain, it is a fit subject for legislation. goods as secretary-treasurer of the On mankind. Board of Trade, and his excellent re port was roundly applauded at the meeting last night. Regina is to have a half a million dollar station. That may be a mean: of making people stop there when are going east, but alrTue people com ing west are bound for Lethbridge Can't stop them. Oae man who taadc a small IilVesti gation as to the returns Of the census found out that he knew of six families that had not been counted, a total or about thirty people. He asked seven people in succession if they had been counted and only the last of the seven had been counted in the eleven thous and, one hundred and thirty-four. At that rate the estimate that Secretarj Robinson makes of twelve thousand people does not seem a bit too large. The aldermen need not feel other wise than complimented because they are used as an advertisement for a ci- gar. Famous men in all lines of public life get t.hat kind of free advertising. If they were Higher up on the ladder of fame, they would be honored with having themselves used for advertise- ments for cigarettes and patent medi- cines, shoe polish and chewing gum. The cigar advertiser will probably refer the aldermen who bit to Joseph Chamberlain, Tom Keene, Old Abe, Lord Dunraven. Burns and others who have done their turn atracting the peo- ple to the weed. live out all his dayjj. Such men may be classed the "gad flies of life, calcu- lated to annoy their betters, foment the strife, run discord, and bring misery CANADA'S HOMJCfDE RATE Canada holds the record for having the smallest percentage of homicides, and strange to say the United States', the adjoining nation, holds the worst record among the civilized nations. Canada is a new country, newer than the United States and it would be only natural to expect that the criminal rate would be higher. Dr. White, formerly President Cor- nel! University, finds in Canada the number of felonious homicides per mil lion of the population per year to be 3, jn the United States the enor- mous proportion of 129 to million Is recorded. There is food for reflection in this contrast, and in Canada the people are happy in the belief that the different results are produced through our judicial system and the compara- tive swiftness and -certainty cf justice in this, country. Capital punishment, too, must be given credit for a power' luf restraint on the actions of the criminally inclined. The rate In Eng- land and Wales is 10 to 11; Germany, 4 to 5; France, 10 to 15; Belgium, is. FROM OTHER SANCTUMS Paying the Shot (Calgary A man down in Montreal ran amuck Saturday, armed with a revolver and a bottle of gin. The latier implement has one are more shots in it, but they cannot be dis- charged so rapidly. A Celestial Disease (Lacombe Cometitis promises to be an un- usually widespread epidemic this year among the old earth's inhabitants. Al- ready many have been seized with the disease and two species have been dis- Halley's and the other unknown. Serious outbreaks are anti- cipated in the spring and the epidemic will be most acute at night from dark until midnight. Four Flushing (Ottawa Free A California woman Is accused of making use of four foundlings to palm herself off as the mother of quads. If her four flush hadn't been called she probably would have filled her hand on the next draw. Paradise? .Sure! (Ottawa Free The government of Alberta is bound to cater to the farmers. What with state-owned elevators and state-owned pork packing plants, the Canadian west will soon become a farmer's para- dise. THE MAGISTRATE'S SALARY The action of the city council in making Police Magistrate MacDoug- all's salary fifteen hundred dollars a year will be approved by the citizens. It is a position to which a man must give a great deal of time. In fact the work at the police court has grown so rapidly during the past year that 0; a man.g t-me .g it Much of the time Is taken up up in the actual trial of the cases at the court A great many cases have knotty legal problems in thorn, and much time is required to solve these reading must be and considerable done. Taking these things into considera- tion as well as the dignity of the office and the standing of a man called upon to fill it, fifteen hundred dollars a year is not a bit too much. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Roard of Trade yesterday closed the most successful year of its career. The Board of Trade has a good coun- cil to direct its affairs this year. The. members had a difficult task to pick out the eight best men among those nominated. They were all good. The re-election of C. G. K. Nourse to the presidency of the Board of Trade Two Good Points (Edmonton 'The C.P.R. will spend in the West this year. This is important news.

King Reports Charges Made by Aid, Fray lie on The alleged unfair charge by the city weighmaster brought up at coun- :il meeting a few weeks ago was ex- plained last night. The report of Aid. King, chairman of the market com- mittee, stated that he had examined :he books of the weighmaster and had :ound everything correct. There had been nothing done by the weighmaster .nat was not correct and in accordance with his instructions from the council. The report stated that notices regard- ing the weighing fees and market fees were o be placed in the market build- ing so as to avoid any misunderstand- ing in the future. Aid. Frayne stated that the weigh- master should give a receipt for 25c and not 15c if 25c had been paid for weighing. He did not see how that was correct. Aid. King replied that there was a fee Of ISc for weighing and lOc for a market fee. The money had been hand ed over to the city alright and was shown on the books. Aid. Frayne said that he was not accusing the weighmaster in any way 3Ut it was misleading and he didn'i think the report covered it sufficiently ;o make that clear. The report was adopted.
