TRIAL BY JURY The High River Times criticises the jury that acquitted Danielson, the man charged with cleaning up a lot of money from banks along the line. of Macleod and Calgary railway. It thinks that the result in this case demonstrates several weaknesses in the operation of our criminal law. In the first place it points out that there docs not appear to be any machinery provided by the. Govern- ment for doing the necessary detec- tive work in investigating and pre- paring evidence. In the second place it considers great care should always be taken in appointing a crown prosecutor. Particularly it advocates without any mincing of wo.rd.-5 the abolition of NEWS FROM WARNER Seven Immigrant Cars Arrive in Social Events Warner, March -James Higby went to Whiskey Gap this week. Seven immigrant cars arrived this week. Wrirner is booming. is generally cleared by burning, and the ground is then ready for the first crop without plowing, as the soil is a fine silt with no more grain than flour and 40 feet in depth in most places with no or stones. Crabapples, cherries and many other fruits grow wild. Peaches and apples are cultivated enroute between Ash- croft and, the Nechaco. The Nechaco river abounds in sal- mon sturgeon and trout. Wild geese, ducks, pheasants and partridges are abundant and some deer. For mixed farming and fruit it is unexcelled. Being nearer the coast than Alberta it has n milder climate and as British Columbia is short on farm lands but has a great demand for the products in her many great lumber' and mining camps, whal lands there are suitable for farming and frtiit raising have always reach ed a very high figure whenever transportation has reached them.

Refreshments were served at an appropriate hour. Mr. and family arrived on trial by jury. It thinks that if Dan- from Franklin, Minn. Mr. ielson had been tried by a judge he. would have been convicted. The Times even goes so far as to say: "The system of trial by jury is effete and should be abolished. It seems impossible to get men suf- ficiently sane to try a case on the evidence and without prejudice. Had Danielson been tried by a judge there could have been no doubt as to the result. A good deal of what the Times says will be approved by the general pub- lic particularly as it is often notice- able that there is a lack of system in the ferreting ont evidence in criminal cases. The government conld very well estab- lish n detective branch in connec- tion with the Attorney General's de- partment. These detectives could be employed in gathering evidence in important criminal cases. They would be much better able to do :io than local police officers and would not be affected by local prejudices and personal considerations. Friday and Saturday rates, until they at any price. The shrinkage in the nominal val- ic of brewing properties is estimated it The-stocks in the .ending companies have fallen as much as 50 per cent., some more than ;hat, in two days.
