BADEN-POWELL LORD CHIEF JUSTICE ON PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES years' time we may be able to say (hat flying is com- ,mon., It may, perhaps, still be looked upon as a venture- some practice, amd among the general community may not be exactly "an every-day experience, but most well-to-do people will .have made a trip, and many will own machines and make almost daily runs. It is thcu that new, laws and regulations will have to be The "rule of the road" in the air must be settled, as also the question as to whether international frontiers are to be respected, and if not -whether universal trade must result. Then comes the subject of the ownership of the air above private property. Finally we must consider the means by which laws may be enforced and tho registration and identification of aerial'machines car- ried out. Hitherto international frontiers have been fixed by natural divisions of land and water, such as the sea coast or river hank, or clearly- denned of ground. Such lines of demarcation easily crossed by those who vrish to do so unseen and without interruption. But in the air it is different. Here no natural boundaries exist, nor can artificial ob- be erected so as to be iMunnountf tile by airships: We are then called upon to answer a most vital question. Axe aero- nauts to be allowed to traverse these frontiers without hindrance, or must they descend at frontier stations to report themselves? If the former, many laws and regulations now in force would be affected. Those regard- ing passports, alien immigration, and the like, would be seriously upset But" a Jar more serious matter is the' collection of customs. Even supposing it were not possible to convey large cargoes of goods, and there is no good reason why this should not be done some day, still it would undoubtedly be'possible to carry parcels of 100 pounds or so. If ftuch an amount vcan be taken through the air free of duty it would manifestly have to be allowed equally to land travelers. Considering, too, the rapidity and ease with which machines are likely to travel, they could be employed con- tinually goingx to and fro over the frontier, and so transporting large quantities of dutiable goods. Either customs must be entirely done away with or we are faced with second alternative, that ail aerial vesselsxmust descend at the customs houses to declare their cargo. Though in the'ordinary way it might be possible to enforce this by the imposition of severe penalties on any.- one detected' in evading it, yet so great would be the opportunities for smug- gling, especially in the dark or in misty weather, that it would without doubt be easy to ply'the nefarious trade. The air-going smuggler would not be bound, as with his maritime prototype, to "land at a favorable spot on the coast; he could travel far inland before disembarking. It seems impossible to enforce any law ts to machines being compelled to descend at a frontier, tad this implies that customs in the main will.have to be abolished. Lord Alverstoue, the Lord Chief Justice of England, delivered dress oil sport at the-Inns of Court Institute, Drury Lane, which does much useful work among the working lads of the district. Lord Aiversione stated that at first he had been asked to speak on "Professional- ism in Athletics." This was a most interesting and most important ques- tion, but it occurred to him that he could tell something of a. more enter- taining character, if he ,dealt with sport, .ancient and modern. After a passing greatness of the reference to the ancient. Greeks iu Great Wealth of Our Country lyj, ScWcnft "We iave to-day of people, occupying square miles of terri- tory, and they own of wealth. On farms Valued at 000 we produce annually agricultural prod- ucts valued afc It is nothing that we produce annually bushels of corn and 000 bales of cotton, if there is no-demand for the corn and cotton and if the demand is not at a fair return. But we have the market, says Vice-President Sherman in Leslie's Weekly. Our of people who produce .of manufac- tured products annually, and receive in wages make the market These figures apply only to finished product. "We get the products to the consumer by miles of railroad, which is three times the railroad mileage of Great Britain, Prance anc Germany combined. When side tracks are taken into account, we have more railroad mileage than all the rest of the world. On these railroads we have engines, carrying millions of cars and hauling tons of freight. This practically equals all the tonnage carried by all the railroads and all the ships of all the rest of the world. This monstrous task is performed by of employes who are yearly paid and this vast business is conducted by of bank clearances. Do we prosper? Only two decades ago we were second to Great Brit- ain in the output of iron and steel. To-day our output equals all the rest 'of the world. We live well and have happy homes, filled with comforts and luxuries. Yet we are a saving people. have iu savings banks in national banks and in stato banks all, The per capita of money in the country is larger than in any other save one, France, and amounts to each of our people The business of the country amounts to over annually. How do we do such a monstrous business which is also profitable? It is because we have confidence in ourselves and the other nations of the "lobe have confidence in us. art, philosophy, war, nusic and sport, Lord Alverstoue remarked that -the Olympic great games of were practised nearly years and years the uanies of the winners were handed down. .Several of their isports had continued to the present day. Of these ancient games he specified the quarter-mile, javelin-throwing, wrestl- ing, the broad the dis- cus, spear throwing .and boxing. These subjects were illustrated by a Dumber of lantern views, the lee- tuVer observing that the aim of the Greeks was to secure a uniform de-i velopment. He pointed out in par- ticular.the superb development of the discus-thrower and the boxer and ihe Roman gladiator. They. must not think in those times that competition was simply for the purpose of prizes. Prizes then were infinitely small; there were no pot- hunters; simple wreaths of laurel were in many cases the only reward for many mouths of hard training. In this connection he urged them to pur- sue the Greek ideal, which had been set out by his friend, Prof. namely, that the body of paan had a glory'as well as his intellect-and spirit and both body and mind should be ciplined. As to modern sport, Lord Alver- stone observed: "In ray opinion, cric- ket is the finest there is." Football has become very prominent of years. He then dealt" with running, walking, high, jumping, long jumping, putting the" weight, .gymnas tics, swimming, diving, cycling, fenc- ing, mountaineering, sleighing, tobog- ganning, skating, physical curl- ing, etc. As to running, the 'Chief Jus- tice, who represented; Cambridge for- ty-five years ago, gave his hearers some useful advice. He ran at the university, and interest in sport he had maintained to the pre- sent day. He had seen boys running flat-footed. He wished to impress on any youthful runner present' the ex- treme importance of running on the. toes, is, if he desired to attain men and women who hud shown most remarkable power in upsetting the strongest oppoueuts by means of Ju- Jitsu. He also praised physical drill, which from his own observation had done immense good to the boys aud girls in Loudou, and was most invaluable to .those wlio were unable for various reasons to get much out door exercise. Iu concluding the lec- turer said tbat ail the various sports should be practised, not for the special purpose 'of> getting prizes, though to win was a very nice thing, but for the development of their bodies from a health point of view. They need not imagine any special method of feeding or special exercises were necessary. Ho had tried'1, as much as anyone. who had grown stut to keep in condition. Some other ad- vice was, "Do not extend .yourself to the .highest, effort when in 'training', whatever 4you are' vdoiug. do enough to keepe yourself invthorpugu- ly good condition. Do not make your fiual effort until you are 'going "to race." He counselled them to con sider sport from the point of view of fitting them' for their work in life and to cultivate the love of the body to remember the words of Prof. Jebb the body, of a man had a glory, as well as his intellect and spirit. He would also ask, them, whenever they entered into any contest, to conduct the highest spirit of honor. Rather be beaten., ten -or twelve times than win by a trick or by unfair means, were the concluding words of his Lordship, who was warm- ly cheered. success in this branch of atmetics.' In connection with high jumping, he well remembered.. Mr. Brooks of Man- chester, jumping 6. feet 2 1-2 inches, which was subsequently beaten by Mr. Meyers, of- America. It seemed to be rather remarkable that with all the development of sport in recent years English high jumping had gone back. The average of the winners at the university sports and at the cham- pionships was two inches or. more un- der six feet. With regard to wrestling, there had been an extraordinary -development of this sport by the Japanese, who during the last few years over both ENGLISH SPEAKING ROMAN CATHOLICS Against The Priveleges to French Canadians June Next week a strong deputation of English speak' ing Roman Catholics will wait on Sir James P.

As soon as few French-Canadians are located to gether in. a township they ask for a priest of their own and -a school of their own, and if they cannot get the latter they ask that one of the teach- ers be a French-Canadian. Some weeks ago several English-speaking Roman Catholics made a vigorous pro- test against school, conditions in parts of the counties of Russell, Prescott and Glengarry. These gentlemen said their children could not. get a decent English education as all the teachers' were French speaking and could scarcely speak-English; let alone teach It is asserted by some of the lay- men who are arranging. for the' dep- utation to Sir James Whitney that the prominent churchmen of Ontario are united in-the demand that Ontario shall remain an English speaking pro- vince, and that all schools shall teach English only.

AT THE MAJESTIC, TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7 AND 8 Tour of Fleet Is Money Wasted The assertion that the best way to pre- serve peace is to build up a great navv and army shows an ignoraixe of history, says Justice Brewer in Leslie's Wceklv. The trip of the fleet around the world, as a boastful show of our naval strength, has been nothing but a waste of money. After all its folly, its influence on the orient has not brought peace one day nearer. Over five millions of the people'; money have been spent for coaling this fleet alone. benefit has the nation received from that expenditure? Over 65 per cent of this country's expenses are due to the-army and navy. In 1907 the sum spent in tliia way .totaled largest sum spent by any nation- There never has been a nation that built a great army or navy btit that got into war. Peace born of force is temporary. Not until all nations settle their differences by arbitration will the world enjoy peace.
