NOT FAIR TO THE CHIEF There is one duty still that the -city council owes to 'Chief of Police Gillespie and that is to provide him legal assistance in his police court work. The Chief of Police is not sup- posed v> be a lawyer although it must be admitted that lie is versed in law..than lots who have .passed their examinations. But in addition to his regular duties as Chief of Po- lice .he should not be asked nor al- lowed to conduct his own cases in the? police court in defence of the city- bylaws or of the statutes. The city and the provincial authorities should see that he has legal support in the court room. If this duty is not a part of the duty of the city solicitor and the provincial prosecuting at- torney some other arangement should be made. If this work is in the list of duties it should be done.

(Toronto Star) Stories about the Hon. Frank Oli- ver seem to be in order at the Parlia- ment buildings. One of them is the tale of, the Oliver apple, which., in the Eden of Alberta, caused, as afore- inie, a fall. Mr. Oliver, is seems, had watched vith pride a little apple tree which vas growing in a corner of his garden folks knew, had iu Alberta. This Nobody as far as any apples vas the first tree, he awaited anxious- ly its first fruits. In due time, blossoms came: a number of them. Mr.Oliver paid more attention to that tree than if it had been a Grit constituent. It rewarded his efforts by producing a number of little apples, and the Ol- iver orchard was 35 proud a spot a? Holland. But, alas, the apples sickened and dropped but one, which plump ed. out and colored up and grew dai- ly in maginficense. Ewe lambs were common in the West, but apples-----. The mayor of Edmonton was told about the tree. "There was to be a celebration, with speeches.

THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA CHOICE In September last the Scottish Ag- ricultural Commission visited Cana- da. Six weeks ago one of their num- ber, J. M. Hodge, Esq., came back t tate another look with the view tf purchasing a large tract on which to locate a number of Scottish plough men who would ultimately be allow ed to acquire the land. It was recog- nized that Mr. Hodge's choice of lo- cality would be a. feather in the cap of the district chosen. Southern Al- berta has won the prize for Mr. Hodge has purchased a seventy thousand dollar farm near Nanton. This will have an nnportaot bear- ing on the immigration to Southern .Alberta. The action of the members of the Scottish Commission will like- ly be followed by others who have the welfare of the Scottish agricultural laborers at heart. The small Scot- centre. The one apple was to be pick- ed with form and ceremony. The. night before it all happened, (which it a little boy climbed up to the tempting fruit, strong young fingers plucked it from the stem, firm young teeth bit "into it with joy. And that is what happened to the first apple in Alberta. tish farmer looking for a chance to better him-self will also be very like- ly to follow their lead and accept the verdict of their investigations. Southern Alberta recognizes the high, compliment that' it has been selected after the whole country had been examined. On the other hand_ there is no class of farmers Southern Alberta would rather, have, -than these sturdy, expert Scottish farmers. OUR POINT OF VIEW Another wet blanket has been ap- plied.

Didn't Look Right A certain drill sergeant 'whose seve- rity made him unpopular with his company was putting a squad of re- cruits through the funeral exercises. Opening the ranks so as to admit" the passage the supposed cortege be- tween them, the instructor, by the way of practical explanation, walk- ed slowly down the lane formed by tHe two ranks, saying as he did so: "Now, I am the corpse. Pay atten- tion." Having reached the end of the party he turned round and regarded them with a scrutinizing eye for a moment or two.
