Wo hold no brief for the grain men In this matter, but merely wish to give the formers a tip. It ilioy entered Into contracts to sell grain, and it clrcumstancea prove that their Judgment was bad, the cheapest way out Is to pay thD'piper and decide that they will not be caught making tlie same mistaUc again. The grain buyer is out to make money: so is the farmer. It the contracts made were In good faith there is nothing to bo gained by dodging a moral obligation by trying to hide behind legal technloalitios. The moral should bo to have the wheat In hand hereafter before selling; then weather and the vagaries ot the thresher-man will not be able to place the farmer in an imenviable position with regard to any contract he may make.

The parllament-^of Canada unanimously passed a bill for the extension of the term for one year, and it is pretty iafe to say that if, at the end of that time, the war continues, another extension of the parliamentary term will be voted without protest from either side of the house. The concerted action of parliament In this matter -will be greeted with pleasure by Canadians, and will have a deterrent effect on the extreme partlzans of botli parties who are loathe to let any opportunity for party advantage pass unnoticed. The dispatch with which.the business ot the nation has been conducted since the big Ottawa flre is an example of how it can be done  when bigger things than party fortunes are at stake. The precedent should have a beneficial effect in future. Cruards have been placed on the Toronto city hall and at the city halls at other places.

Reports received in the west at the time of the flre indicated that the Canadian sovemment had been warned. � This puts a different construction on thematter. It seems as if the Canadian government had had no wam-, Ing that an attempt to destroy the tiulldings would be made, and tliere-;itoro no extra precautions had been taken. �: No doubt the Canadian governmental will ask the'department of justice at Washington for information as to the ^purported wariilng, and if it proves to be correct that a warning had,been given, Canadians should know It bo that every precaution may be taken in all parts of Canada to" combat any further depredations on the part of German sympathizers in the United States. The record of the Providence Journal in its ferreting out of German plots has been such that any warning coming from that quarter should not be lightly thrown aside.
