THE VALVE OF LIGHT RAILWAYS i The Herald has frequently urged the consideration ot tho adoption ot light iailvraj'5 to meet the transportation needs ot isolated communities in this fiction of Albfrla.

ELECTIONS i The defeat of -Mr. Asiiuhh and bis I leading Liberal calteagKS in tha re- cent BrltUh elections, was more pro- i notmcefl than earlier reports iadlcat- i ed.

The fads that wera brought oat by the board's investiga- tion, are astounding. For lilleen years before the war, we are told, aliens hid sent ou an av- trage a rear back to their native European countries. This bo- ing stopped by the outbreak of hostil- ities, It is calculated that there Is now a billion and a half dollars ready for tiansniUsiou. This exportation was the result ot a systematic campaign carried on by agencies hiving a close connection with the governments ot the countries from which Ihe Immigranls came. The savings were sent to European banks. When a competency was to the cre- dit of a man there, he was induced to re-emigrate. On reaching his Home- land he was taken In band by others who persuaded him to put his money Inlo all kinds of schemes, In which he was usually robbed. Transatlsnlic steamship lines and foreign langnajf newspapers were patties to the game. Still more Im- portant were 'the clergy, ivno, accord- ing to the war board, received salar- ies from tie govemments of the coun- tries from ivlilcli they came ion aiding tie process described.
