D IEAN PAGET, preaching iu llic pro-calhedral in Calgary, advocated llic letlml chamber for Die murderer in place of hanging ns decreed by Hie law. From ;t strictly humanitarian point there may be much that can be said in favor of the suggestion. Hut in liis argument for the adop- tion of llic humane plan the learned divine shows some inconsistency. Punishment, he said, must he remedial or deterrent in its effect, hi the. case of the death penally it cannot bill be deterrent, j As a proof of this the experience of France was referred lo. There the abolition of capital pmi-- islimcnl was tried out for a lime. The result was that crimes of violence became so increased that the death penalty had lo be rc-instaled. It may be asked if an easy and pleasant for the murderer lo expiate his crime would act as a deterrent. To he hanged by Hie neck, as the !aw says, has in it something of a degrada- tion. If is not the penally so much as the means through which il is paid that makes hanging ful- fil its' object. To the ordinary mind death by _ hahging'is revelling, and it is very doubtful whe- a.plpasanl exit, such as the lethal chamber, would serve the purpose for which capital punish- ment is intended. The recent bungling in the hanging, of Jasper Collins has roused a strong feeling for which there is jus! ground. The incident was deplor- able, hut it was the exception more than the rule hangings are concerned. It -would be dilli- cult to argue whether death comes more speedily by the route of the lethal chamber or by electro cuiion than hy hanging when properly carriet out. Dean Pagct further condemned Ihc pmclin of announcing the dnte of the execution lo Hi' prisoner as a cruel relic, of harbarism. He sug gesled flial it would be more hijmane-to lell bin that it vi-juuld no.Ufl.ke. plaqejjcfgre- a1 certain dale and to let that date.be unsettled. This would mea that the prisoner any moment after certain dajf he lafen out. and in the interests p lio' niit' (wictanfp ac n sent to I be tiaty for yorjuiy mid kept the Suva Scotia (.'oaswivative i organization fund?

Bnl the Liberal members in the House, who the Gutelius-Staunton report as an alroc- ious libel, are likely lo insist upon an expose of all the facts surrounding it. As a beginning, Hon. il. R Kmmerson put ;ij scries of questions on file in respect of Ihc record of Mr. Gulelius. Al the time Mr. Guleiius, an American, was ap- pointed lo investigate the Transcontinental, he was an official of the C. P.

All sorts of rumors are current as to the gov- ernment's plans in regard lo the Transcontinental, Dut there is a well-defined suspicion that the in- [cntion is to eliminate il as a competing factor Bgainsl the C. P. R. The Grand Trunk Pacific had never any desire lo build east of Cochrane, but the Laurier govern- ment insisted that it was in'the public interests that the road should run through to the seaboard. The Gutelius-Slaunton report provides the G. T. P. with a handle for refusing lo carry out the ob- ligations.which the Laurier government insisted upon and which were an important factor in the scheme as submitted to and endorsed by the peo- ple in the general elections of 1904. The farmers of the west have nt) love for the C. P. R.-and they have looked longingly for the promised competing line.

One oi tho most interesting guests ot Canidlan oluh lunch- eon's In Canadian cities this -season 'was Rev. Dr. the iiouular anrl democratic rector of tlio down- own church of St. George's (Anglican) of N'ew York Cits'. Thirty-two years ago ho was assistant rector of SI. arae's, iTnronlo, anu parishioners desired to have him appointed rector, but the Bishop of Toronto of hat day ivould not mate the appointment. Then llalnsford received a call u> New Yor'rf, where he is probably ona ot the most powerful and influential clergymen in Gotham today.' The sketch shows him, the tallest man in tha group, renewing acquaintances with some of hjs old yurithloners during a recent visit to Toronto. Dr. Hainsfbrd has made a persona! stud? of.missionary problems in Africa, and the above one ot his statements on tho subject while in V Canada to get a decision that Duchemin, had not ail nninistercd an oath and that there, fpni their witr.ess, Cunie, had no committed perjury. Their appeals failed, said Mr. Mac- donald, aiid Currie is still in the nmi- tentiary unless within the past, few- days he has been pardoned and taken j out of confinement as the famous j Captain Landry was taken' out of jail by the Minister of Justice last year that te could be. free to perlorm the duties of an office to which.he had been appointed by the Minister of Marine. 11AZEN" IS SHAKES The story told hy 'Mr. Macdonald created a profound impression on the House and Hon. Air. Haztti made no reply to the. I'ictou member. That he was considerably shaken was shown a few minutes later when Mr. Kyle, oi Richmond, asked him il he allowed Conservatives, after being appointed to oElice, to. continue oper- ations as active political workers. Mr. said that he did not ap- prove of such conduct and when given MORE LIGHT ON G. T. P. PROBABLY it is true, as Mr. F. P. Gutclius says, that the. Grand Trunk Pacific has spenl more than it should have on its.linc to dale. Probably it is, but (here, is an clement of doubt behind it Ihat looms larger and larger. No one but a chosen few has yet seen the famous re- port. It is supposed lo be in the printers' hands at present. The opposition members haven't had "even the tiniest peep al il.' Why?

SMITH has a dry goods store in a cer- tain Canadian City. lie does good business, but to do more. He believes that Advertising in his local newspupcr is the way to get more business. So he now then....... This is where our friend Smith1 is advertising every now and then. He should advertise frequently as his local newspaper is published. Smith says he wants to advertise regularly, but he can't always find (o prepare advertisements, which is true, for he is his own buyer, sales- manager, director of store service, credit man and half-a-dozen other things. What Smith should do is this: If he is located in one of the smaller cities, in which (here are no advertising agencies giving a local copy service, and he...... has no one among his own staff qualified by instinct or experience to write the daily announcements, he should go (o the publisher of the news- piper iii which he means, to advertise, requesting his help. In mne cases out of ten, the publisher, through his advertising manager, will be'only too..... glad (ogive Smith the assistance desired................... If Smith is located in one of the larger cities he should secure the services of a recognized advertising agency which will lake over the work of pre- paring his advertisements. Fit this waj; Smilh can be sure of having his advertisement prepared reg- ularly and intelligently, with no more trouble to him than the supplying'01...... the information required by (he writer of (he advertisements. So Smith can do more business, and more business means a larger income for himself, (o say nothing of other gains that go hand in doing of bigger business; This man you know him? Are YOU Smith?
