But there is one species of trust which is only so in name, and can be viewed �without any apprehension. This is the combination of.farmers for the purpose of forming co-operative societies with the object of furnishing ^facilities fcr obtaining money at a low rate of intersst. Organizations of this sort can. be instrumental in bringing into practice institutions such as are in vogue in other countries where the importance of the agricultural industry is properly estimated. ' � In this matter legislation will do �much in helping the fanners towards the fulfilment of a legitimate desire. The system of agricultural banks is already very well known, and the time is ripe when some effort should be made in this country for their institution here. It is needless'to dwell on the facilities they will give to the encouragement of agriculture with all its benefits indirectly to the community in general. It virould hoi. be amiss for the government of this country to follow the example of that of the United States, and appoint a commission to inquire into.the .'working of those institutions iii Europe which have for thefcr primary purpose the loaning of money at alow rate of interest, and are worked On a co-operative basis. The Home Rule Bill >-p HE HOME RULE BILL has now _|_ passed from the hands of the British House of Commons, and if the operation of its provisions be not temporarily delayed by the action: ' of the House of Lords, a contentious .matter will be removed from British politics. If, as Mr. Redmond iu his speech prognosticated, the final solution of the vexed question would lead to reconciliation of all the interests . at stake between the north and south, then the outlook cannot but be hopeful for a united Ireland. The Nationalist leader has already held out the olive branch in the sentiments he has expressed towards the people of Ulster. He refused to regard them as anything but brothers, and he invited fhem to join with the Nationalists in government for ' the good of the whole; In this there is exhibited-a laudable spirit, and it only remains- for the leaders of the Ulster. party to meet the advances of those of the Nationalists in order to bring about a peaceful and contented Ireland. To the lovers of harmony in the British Empire this consummation will prove a source of great satisfaction. The responsibility for this rests with Ulster, and the general wish must be that wise counsels-will prevail in bringing about a better feeling between the two sections' of ihe Irish people, for the good of the Empire-in general and for thei"Sister Isle" in particular. A Five Year Census THE- RECOMMENDATION of the inter-departmental commission , on statistics that the census in Canada should -be taken every five years Is, we believe, a good one. It will better meet the purposes for which a census is instituted than the present decennial arrangement, particularly in a. country where population is being continually increased artificially--by the coming in of immigrants. \. ' phenomenal as compared with older: cen-j jtres, the space of ten years appears long as a stage mark in the,march of /trrogressi.and.-a -better-gulde would be >&airy cattle from Utah.

How We Progress (Philadelphia Record) The fact that Canada built almost as many miles of new railroad in 1912 as the United States shows the "astonishing progress our northern neighbor is making. Astonished New York (Rochester Herald) ./New York City placed $25,000 in the hands of Herman Rldder last October to pay the expenses of entertaining the officers of the North Atlantic fleet in the Hudson River review. Mr. Ridder has just returned ?6,010.57 to the city treasury, balance unexpended. This is an unusual occurrence, and suggests that Mr. Ridder is not a member of the Brotherhood of Grafters. Bonar Law's Bad - Habit (Woodstock Sentinel-Review) Bonar Law, the Unionist, leader, doubtless did not mean to be taken literally when he said the other day that th� Unionists of Ireland would rather be ruled by a foreign country than by the Irish Nationalists; but if he did not mean it, that is just the reason why he should not have said it. He seems to be developing an unfortunate habit of saying the wrong thing. Sir Rodmond's "Defence" (Winnipeg Free Press) Sir Rodmond Roblin's performance In the* legislature yesterday afternoon like Mr. Rogers' similar action in the Pominion house, in no way exculpates the Manitoba authorities from the disgrace of the Macdonald outrages. They were both intended as diversions to distract and confuse the public mind. By wholesale imputations of wrongdoing to his party opponents and by stormy vituperation of his critics, Six Rodmond hopes to drive from the memory of the people the despicable performances, of his hirelings, under his instructions In Macdonald. The storm having passed the issue remains just what it was before. Sir Rodmond is still guilty of having prostituted to the basest possible uses the police powers of the crown and the functions of the magistracy. It is still true that by this prostitution of the processes of justice there were turned loose in the constituency a riotley mob of janizaries, heelers, henchmen, spies, near-detectives, provocative agents, myrmidoms, all garbed In a little brief authority, all on the pay-sheet of the provincial government, to bully and intimidate the agents and workers of the opposing political party and to prevent a free expression of public opinion by the electors of Macdonald. It is still a fact that men were arrested in Macdonald by executive order, for the crime of. expressing political opinions unacceptable to Sir Rodmond; were kidnapped from the localities where they were working, and were taken to jails outside the constituency, were refused bail by the partisan magistrates; were treat- FARM LAND8 FARM LOAN8 Crop Payment, Straight North one-half of Section 29-3-17, 4 miles south-west of Warner, 200 acres broken Two miles of'new fence.

These were the occurrences that moved the whole Dominion to wonder �what kind of benighted folk we are in Manitoba to tolerate a system of police espionage .and oppression that would be regarded as intolerable by the mujiks of Russia or the half-castes of Mexico. Until the outrageous treatment of: Messrs. Sifton, AValkirishaw, Prince and tSullivan can be explained away the judgment' of the Presbyterian Synod, expressed in these terms, stands: "Under a painful sense of duty, this Synod deeply deplores recent evidence of the deliberate prostitution of justice to personal or party ends, and the trampling under foot the sacred rights of citizens to individual liberty and fair trial."
