The procedure of the appeal to the British Privy Council from the Dom- linion has taken tho semblance of a 'relationship of the Dominion to the [Motherland. Whatever the objections [found in the procedure, it cannot be said that it implies anything of the RflRumption of superiority by the British Court. Lord Birkenhead, the British Lord Chancellor, made this j clear in a speech he delivered at lLord Beaverhrook's banquet to the (Canadian curlers. The Lord Chancellor put it plainly ithat these appeals were valued in Great Britain "not from any compar- petty motives of political van- i Ity, but from a deep realization of our I common history, and the conviction thit there IB no human force which nakei Bo much for centripetal tend- as the community ot our legal iystem."

THE BANK OF MORTH DAKOTA. When It is customary on the part of jome to compare Canadian banks with American ones, to the prejudice of the former, the experience of the Bank of North Dakota points a moral. It is in- teresting if not amusing. It further throws a light on the regime of the Non-Partisan League in the State, in tha domination of its politics. Ilevela- tfona in regard to the methods of the bauk have been disclosed by F. W. Cathro its Director-General. The bank was created by an act of the Non-Partisan Legislature of Thig act provided that the Governor, the Attorney-General and the Com- missioner of Agriculture, composing the industrial commission, should con- trol the bank. It also provided that the bank should be opened upon the 'dale of an authorized Issue of of the bonds to be sold by the vonuninion and the money turned over to the bank.

With the municipalities clamoring all in different ways for more power of taxation, the proposal of the ap- pointing of a parliamentary commis- sion to make a thorough study of mun- icipal taxation would appear to be a wise move. Premier Taschereau of Quebec has declared that the Liberal Party in his province has hitched its car to the success of the Liquor Act it is bring- ing in. It is a case of hitching one's chariot to a star; in the case of Que- bec, the Hennessy star. Those who saw the butterflies, felt the sting of the mosquito, and heard the robin, and so took it for granted that spring was here., must now, with the severe weather following, feel that they spoke too soon. Evidently they omitted to "touch wood" at the time. In making it clear that the present Government had no intention of ap- poaling to the people, as it was the successor to an existing administra- tion and not a new Government, Premier Meighen has a clear belief in is conveyed in the tailing of the mantle of Elijah on EHsha. But in apite of the assertion, it cannot be ex- pected that in the modern day the practice of naming a prophet of thous- ands of years ago should hu regarded as established custom.
