If a case inquest is necessary is vested in one man. The responsibility is too much and we wish it to 'be understood that in criticising a system we are reflect- ing in no way upon the honesty Or of the coroners. The that let the coroner be whom he may, straight, competent, and conscientious, he is still fallible and is called on to exercise discretionary m short every case of death which jv -j {powers which no cannot be certilied to have asked to do. This is natural causes, should be fullv and publicly investigated. The objec- tion taken by the authorities is lod- ged solely on the ground of expense, and until there is an unmistakeable demand from the people for the am- endment of the law it will surely re- main as it a mining -town and the people are familiar with" the casualties of mining life.

And now there comes this Stew- art tragedy, which establishes an overwhelming case for the amendment of the iaw in regard to .inquests. The coroner decided in the first place that there was no necessity for him to order an inquiry. The deceas- ed gave all the signs of having died i of an epileptic fit, and indeed had been treated for epilepsy. However, his friends, for varrous reasons, are far from satished and demand an in- quest. Note first, of all then that but for the demand of his relatives.

Canada i It would be more consistent consigned to mother earth as simply absencc Qf extcrnal injuries the victim of an epileptic fit. That [dition, in short, is just such as sup- I ports the theory that at this time he was suffering from, a fractured skull. On the night of his death he is seen at twelve, and then found dying, five hours later. Was the man never seen by anyone during these five hours Here again is' work for ;he police. His relatives have other reasons to suspect the cause of his death, but it would not help the in- -quiry they are conducting to publish them. This, then, is the story of Albert Stewart's death. There is a very, large element of mystery which has yet to be explained. Indeed the mys- tery is so apparent, the suspicions of foul .play so glaring that it ought never to have been necessary for the friends of the deceased to take up the inquiry. It is without a doubt a case for the crown and it is in the best interests of society that it should be undertaken. Whether or not [the mystery will permit of a natural explanation does not affect the case for inquiry. Had not the: relatives of. the deceased insisted on an inquest nothing would have been known of; the fractured skull or of the other circumstances surrounding the case invest it with ..such sinister possibilities. The whole incident es- tablished beyond all question that the security of society" and the pro- tection of life demand a compulsory system of crown inquiry. Surely we have risen above the day when, as" a government principle, the most vital interests of society are weighed against so rrmiiy dollars and odd ;cents. The present system is open to oil manner of abuse ami permits alt kinds of irregularities. It is nothing folk; and Martin Burrell. Mr. Bur- rell was particularly caustic in bis remarks. The consideration of the bill will be resumed tomorrow. The balance of the day was taken up with minor government measures and good jJrogress is being made. Among these were the bills respect- ing agriculture commercial feeding stuffs and the subsidy for the French line of steamers. Mr. Monk suggest- ted that the latter bill should stand over until the French .Chamber rat-; ified the treaty, but Mr. Brodeux could not see the matter in that light. The effort to bring the session to a close was evident and with the G. T. P. bill out of the way, there will not be much left on the order pa- pers. The Senate discussed the bill'deal- ing with a department of external af- fairs, and passed it without amend- ment. The government has received no official intimation that Lord Kitchen- er of Khartoum will visit Canada.'it is considered quite likely that he will return to England from India via Canada. The cabled report that he with an officer will report to the war office on the condition of militia is not taken seriously. a hoary survival of the .jvLiiij im JLi..

Steel and iron in a furnace expand and contract, btrt in different degrees.- When the metals are joined by bolts and cement, the expansion and contrac- tions gradually loosens the bolts and allows the cement to drop out, and the openings left allow the dust and gas to escape to the rooms above. In the HECLA, there arc no bolts cement. The joints are made by fusing the steel and iron together at heat just as a blacksmith welds together the pieces of a horseshoe.
