"It was five or six years ago. Easter was ap- proaching. For many months I had been the only representative of the Christian ministry in !he town of Prince Rupert, which y.-as struggling into existence on the shore of Kolen Island. Mem- bers of all denominations had been attending our services. I told them that as a bishop of the An- glican church -which was first on this coast bj many years, I counted it a great privilege to min- ister to them, and as I knew many valued exceed ingly their Easter Communion, 1 should he glad to welcome to our Easter celebration those who were communicants of other I added, to use the language of our'prayer- book, 'as shall be religiously p.hd devonlcly dis- posed.' 'The scene on that Easter day was a memor- able one. Roman Orthodox Greeks, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, as well as Anglicans, came. Together we sang most heartily 'The church's one foundation is Christ, her Lord.' Together we knelt side by side' and partook of those sacred elements which, variously interpreted, meant for each and ill Hie-Holy. Communion, the Fellowship Di- The tolerance, sympathy and broad-minded- ness displayed cnnnral but appeal. When men like the Bishop of Durham uphold the action of his contemporaries in Africa we cannot but feel Jhat they have the right side of'the argument. ARE WE TOO SQUEAMISH ARE we not getting squeamish in our zeal for humanitarianism? And is not this zeal Ihreatening to gel the better of discretion? In view of the many criticisms which flood the. daily- press in cases where the law appears to have as- serted itself loo harshly, these questions may >vell be asked. Tht Boartlman case in Calgary is one in point. The senlence of the law imposing a ccr- Inih number of lashes on a youth for assaulting imd robbing a young girl at night has called for jnany letters of protest. So much so that the! magistrate who imposed the sentence-has been forced to make his defence through Ihe press. iWhen his version of the case, is read he appears have dealt with the culprit with some justifica- tion. These are his words: "Boardmnn WHS guilty of an indecent, hrulal 'and inexcusable assault on a young girl who was on her way to her sislcr's home at night. While 5ic robbed her of her purse he evidently in tended to outrage her. The girl struggled fierce- ly while in his clutches and bit him severely in physically hurls will cure him. In giving his rea- sons for the punishment imposed on Uonrilman, Magistrate Sanders has taken this trait of certain luman, natures into consideration and he says: 'I sentenced Boardman to the lash because lis crime was that of coward and a brute. 1 hall continue to impose sentences which call for asliings in the prelection of the young woman- lood of this country. Newspapers and individ- lals who would shield creatures like Boardman rom the sling of the lash, instead of preaching what they call the golden rule doctrine, arc doing much to encourage crime and depravity in the community." In support of the efficacy of using a coward's methods on a coward we are reminded of the crime of "garrotting" which some years ago held i the British Isles in a reign of terror. II was the practice of miscreants to creep up silently behind elderly men and women and placing their hands oh their throats partially strangle them, and so effect a robbery of valuables they carried on their persons. Imprisonment failed to eradicate the crime, and il was only effectually stayed when every offender caught was given the lush. There are always hysterical persons ;vho give vent to their feelings when reading in cold print accounts of crimes with punishments inflicted. They fail lo appreciate the points' 'filch were brought out in evidence at the courts and influenced the judge or riiiigistrale, in passing sentence. These arc more intimately known lo the persons who sat in judgmentHhan lo the out- side public, and in judging the givers of sen- tences tliis should not be lost sight of. It may be that sentences appear incongruous, ml sonic little confidence should be reposed on hose who are selected to administer the law. particular should be investigated before their methods are decried. Sentences are in most cases a matter of expediency for the protection of society. What was justified at one age may under different conditions appear .too severe in others. Our judiciary can only hold its respect so long as every particular is sifted before public judgment over its acts is passed. There is danger in being squeamish over hu- manitarian methods. As'a result of this suffra- gettes are becoming daily more rampant, and crimes out-heroding previous ones have become a matter of almost daily recital. FARMER HARNESS OUR POINT OF VIEW The local police seem lo be right there when it comes lo chicken. Isn't il about time they starling another campaign for five cent beer in Calgary? The irrigationisfs are due in a very few months. Faith and il was jist such a day as this thai the dear ould Saint Ihransported Ihc ugly snakes oudl of onld Ireland.
