[Etefcve the militia 'went into camp, -the Minister of Militia gave orders that no liijiior was to be sold in the .camps, doing away with the canteens, .Some of the officers commanding the camps undertook to laugh at the mi ister's ofde.rs, trusting no doubt public opinion to see them .througl -or whether th o'fllcers liked .or not. Col. Sam intern ed those orders to be put into eEfeci and'now those officers who disobeys hmx: seen tit to resign almost befor they got home from camp. While th Herald commends the minister on hi stand regarding the canteens, it com mends still more his determination twe may well imagine tho vicissitudes of hard- I he-suffered In, the cause to he demoted, his life The celebrating'of the golden anni- versary of his pricsfhocd must have been a source of- infinite joy and con- solation to the aged prelate. His re ;cprd is set forth in the lines 'which speak of hia -doing more than any llv man in civilizing the native In- (fians.: Not only that, but. with a fi-ae -from bigotry and" intolerance, he worked with Protestant and Catholic.

There should be no room left for suspicion, and the duty rests with the council "t.b claar away any possible doubt or misapprehension. There is cne; course only 'left to f> Alderman Adams, and that is to bring the matter up before the council.

Irrespective of the remarks made by "Alderman Adams there is no getting from the fact that there has been much talk lately among the citizens; as to apparent irregularities j aud waste of public money on the part of those responsible. "Apart from therefore, it be- comes' necessary that there should at least be afforded some satisfactory explanation.- The public 'would like to know the reason why- in many cases There are., (lie items, to which the executive of the Business Men's As- sociation called attention at the last meeting. -In the particulars .named there were sufjicieiit grounds for in- dignation in regard: to what appears a fax regard to ways and means, in fairness, however, to the council, there Tvas.a matter which called for comment which does not reflect on the 'board.
