What S-eographioal ei- cordance with the Northwest Terri- tories' Act such trial was not permis- sible, raises a very interesting ques- tion as to the right of the individual to a trial by popular verdict as denot- ed by trial by jury.

In refusing tho application of coun- sel, the presiding judge remarked that It is nut only Greece loses in tho taking of part of the adjoin- ing territory of Thrace given her when the Treaty ot Sevres -was signed.

This he was not prepared to assume, though he favored the jury trial. It appears that the Northwest Territor- ies' Act lays down certain instances In which a jury may be employed and certain occasions in which it may not. A3 his Lordship pertinently remarked in reference to these, there could not be according to this Act a trial for jury if a man slashed you in the face but ihere could be one if a man stuck 9 fork into a pig. The question of juries, us denoted In the Northwest Territories' Act, raises the principle of jury-trials, in what is laid down in It, that an indi- vidual has the right as a charter-of hii liberties to demand a trial by his own peera. The value of the jury In past history1 as a bulwark against aggression by the Crown .or Executive cannot be over-rated, but the working of the institution has not escaped criticism. In civil actions it is urged that Its use protracts trials. Counsel as a rule are tempted to enlarge both In their examinations and in their addresses to the jury as distinguished frem pro- cedure before a trial judge. The jur- ors are usually unwilling aud insuffi- ciently remunerated, and with these features jury trial in civil cases, often drag out much longer and at greater expense than trial by a judge alone, The proceedings again are occasion- ally rendered ineffective by the fail- ure of the jurors to agree. In respect to jury trials there is much force in the argument against what the need of unanimity leads to; there is the application of pressure1 which it may lead to force conviction on the minds of jurors to arrive aj a unanimous decision. There is again to be considered the indifference to ver- acity, which the arguers for majority come possessed of the island of Cyprus. Out of the Treaty of Sevres Greece became the possessor of the known as the Sporades, twelve which Italy occupied during the Turco-Halian war of 1912. Racially and by historic tradition the Inhabitants- of these islands are pre- ponderantly Greek. However, owing to the earlier conflict over their pos- session, it was arranged that Turkey should cede them to Italy, who in turn, on the same day and at the same place, coded all of them, with the exception of the island of Rhodes, to Greece, Rhodes, according to separ- ate agreement between Greece and Italy will be administered by Italy for fifteen years, when a plebiscite will be helil for determining to whom it shall belong. But there is this pro- viso, that, if in the meantime Great Britain should relinquish Cyprus in favor of Greece, .Rhodes will be sur- rendered by Italy. Not only in Europe but In Asia Greece loses out In the revision of the Treaty of Sevres. By the-treaty she was given the administration of a large area surrounding the important seaport of Smyrna, thus obtaining for her a prestige, in Asia Minor. In the new decision to give Smyrna a semi- autonomous gove: procedure whic] ;ment there is a 1 meet more favor with Turkey, the ancient enemy of Greece, than , Greece. t SELF-DETERMINATION 'FOR IRELAND LEAGUE. Pursuing a mirage so far as the big majority oi the people of Canada view it, the sympathizers with the Sinn Fein and the "Irish under the grandiloquent title oE "Self-Deter- mination for Ireland League of Can- ada and are pushing their propaganda by moans ot the dis- tribution of pamphlets.

We shall the public mind; the probability that I leave the protagonists of the move- jurors will disagree and trials be j ment to administer whatever patent rendered abortive; and the absence of reasonable security in the unani- moua verdict that would not exist in the word of a majority. AH these anay be said to be undeniably true, but dis- agreements are not frequent, and whatever may happen in the jury salve they may devise to smooth their own consciences. It Is easy to believe what you wish to believe. The particular point which the pamphlet propaganda seeks to prove is that the League does not support the Sinni Fein demand for a republic. room no compunction is now used by It demands simply, it urges, that in the court to induce agreement. B.ut apart from any incidental de- fects it can be well advanced that In criminal cases trial by jury is per- haps the best tribunal that- could he devised, provided care is taken in id the majority shall rule. But I 11 UCJi with the forcing of this view it vainly disguises the real object of the pro- paganda, when, -with a candour .that which the marketing of all Canadian wheat was placed in the hands of the Canadian Wheat Board, according to the report ot the chairman of that board, James Stewart, tabled in the house by Right Hon. Sir George Fos- ter, minister of trade and commerce. In his report, Mr. Stewart states the average price realized by farmers at the shipping point in Canada waa 12.50 per bushel as against 25 cents per bushel less received by fanners in the United States, according' to the figures of the United SUtes bureau of statistics. The price of bread in Canada, during the period when flour prices were also control. led by the wheat hoard, was 1 1-2 cents per pound leas than the aver- age price paid by the consumers in the United States. Mr. Stewart deals fully In his report with the works of the board, which waa created by order-in-councll on July 31, 1919, from its inception un- til the close of its work. The balance sheet, from inception to December showed total deposit In banks and elsewhere of approximately against which there was outstanding in participa- tion certificates. There had been paid to date and crlalms were filed with the board for between and J600.000 covering lost, stolen and destroyed certificates, only just returned from the States about a day.

Mr. Wyatt visited at the Teacheran over the week-end. The quarterly board of the church met last Friday evening. Like all other Institutions the church Is af- fected by the unusual financial condit- ions and is finding difficulties in finan- cing. A resolution of appreciation ot the services of Mr. J. H. Mills as treasurer was passed. Mr. Oalbraith was ap- pointed la his place. Another resolution expressed grati- tude for the helpful meetings conduct- ed by Mr. Wbltealde and Mr. Gled- hill, and commended these men to any church considering the .advisabil- ity of making use of an evangelist. It was reported by the treasurer that ths total amount received by Messrs. Whiteslde and Oledhlll for their ser- at Coaldale was 1153.00. The question of a pastor for the next church year was brought up In due course and Rev. II. Bosomworth was unanimously wanted to stay for a fourth year.
