DURING the past month the Grini Reaper hoi removed two of the best friends Canada ever had in Slrathcona arid Earl Minlo. The death of the former probably touch- ed closer to Ihe hearts of Westerners, but :the whole of Canada will experience a deep feeling of loss at yesterday's announcement of the death of Earl Minlo. During liis residence in Canada frdhi 189S to 100-1, he made hosts of friends by his democratic manner, and since that time up to his death, he lias done'much in England to draw attention to tile overseas dominion where he held bis first appointment of note.. liis training especially tilted him. to represent the Crown in Canada. A soldier front his early youth, he had learned to know men from personal contact.

A TTENTION has been drawn in one or two newspapers to the abuses of justice which the law lends itself to by allowing the option of imprisonment or fine in certain cases. There is no gainsaying the fact that id this there is a dis- crimination in favor of the offender with.a long purse. In uiauy instances also the imposition of a fine is not a punishment to the man of meaiis, but is one to the individual who is forced to pay to escape imprisonment. How the law can be remedied to meet the ase it is not very easy to see, unless fines were Itogelher done away mill. But this would be s impossible as it is in feasible for in certain of- ences imprisonment would be too severe a pen- -Hy. To leave Hid slate to collect the fine, as has been suggested, would cause many delays and difficulties, and" be well-nigh impossible in the case of an individual who was depcmlent- iohs, and.without means. This brings us back to the sentence of the law is it stands at present. .11 is one of those things which, however it may appear to coiitilin the elements of injustice, we shall have to tolerate. When the Socialistic dream is rcaHzed''and the equal distribution of wealth lakes place, then we :nay hope to the apparent injustice removed! HORSES EN who have horses for sale, or who--want io bay or trade for good horses should see Messrs. Welsh and Connor at the Alberta Feed and Sale Stables in this city.

WELSH CONNOR REDMOND'S WARNING ON THE HOME RULE MEASURE THE MEXICAN SITUATION. SO far as the outcome of the present sitnalioi in Mexico is concerned it appears to be on ihe knees.of Ihe gods. That is are (o be guided by the policy laid by President son. To put it in plain words, thai country is to ing at Vera Cmz. be left to work out its own salvation, at any rut for'the time being. Mr. Wilson is playing wha is called a waiting game. He declares that country of the size and power of the .Unite Stales could wait just as long as it pleased. Judging from the shrewdness and aslutenes which have hitherto marked the policies of Hi President one, however he in ay consider armed intervention on the part of the United States im- mediately necessary, feels diffident in expressing a contrary" view to the policy of temporary, in- activity laid down. Woodrow Wilson has argu- ment on his side when he says that those people who were in haste to have things done were for- getting what they themselves would Iiave io do, that they would have lo contribute brothers and sons and sweethearts lo do il if they wanted something done right away. Armed intervention in Mexico, wilh Hie na- ture of the country, would mean a guerilla war- fare which would conlinue for a period of years. This the President has gauged. Present senti- ment born of indignation over recent occurrences in Mexico would wish lo see drastic and immed- iate action taken for Ihe restornlion of peace and order, and the prelection of innocent lives. And if such action were taken there would be hardly any who in the present stale of feeling would nol applaud it. But wilh President Wilson il is a cnsc of de- liberating whether the end will justify the means. If his statement that if men are willing to wait forcible action might not be necessary, turns out to he will further gain In an already established reputation. The onus rests with the United Stales, and.a weak man nl Ihe helm jnight possibly stampeded into action which ha'might have cause to regrel. In view of whal may lake place in Mexico in interim before the policy of liie "mailed fist" 5s called for by his country, Woodrow Wilson iakirlg' a certain amount of risk.
