C. It. .Milchell won llie riding of Medicine Hat by fraud. The words of Judge. Carpenter have been distorted, and His Honor made to say whal he did nol say, and all manner of cruel and lying assertions made for Ihc sake of creating prejudice .Mr. Milchell, as honorable a man as can be foiiml in the province, and of creating llie. impression that Ihc Liberal parly on the province by unfair methods. The ller.ild repeats what we IKIM: before staled, and investigation adds emphasis id the assertion, Unit Iliere does nol exist even a suggestion of fad upon which lo siisl.iin wild charges, and Ihe Herald asserts lhat lliey aie malicious concoctions for (imposes, irre- spective of Hie fact lhal Mr. Mitchell's character is at slake in making such charges. Judge Carpenler did not say the ballots were tampered wilh. In formulating reasons the reluming olMcer should nol be comieled, His Honor presumed a case, for llie purpose of making stronger his conviction thai Ihere was nothing on which lo find against Ihe returning otliccr. That is vaslly different from saying that the ballots were tampered with. What Judge Carpenter said was: "IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF 1 WERE TO TAKE FOR GRANTED, AND 1 WILL ASSUME. KOH THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT THAT THE BALLOT WAS, AS STATED IN THE EVIDENCE, MARKED FOH SPEN- CER. THAT EVEN' !F THAT WERE THE CASE THEN WHY SHOULD I FIND THE HETl'RNING OFFICER, INSTEAD OF ANY.

As to the street railway being run at a loss Ihis was only lo be expected in its first year. But the loss is far beloxv anything surmised, and the revenue in its increase justifies fhe helief tUaf if not be very long before Ihe railway will be showing a pro- fit. As an asscl lo a city a publicly owned railway means much and rather than affecting ils credit it tends the oilier way. The price realized on the sale of the cily bonds, and that giycn on llie oplion, have nothing whatever lo do with Ihe. mat- ters of llie street railway. One has lo look for the cause in the parlicular stale of the money market and Ihe attitude of invest- ors lo municipal bonds generally. The Call is merely begging th'e question lo meet ils own private ends, for such they seem. Cities which have had private franchises on their slrecl rail- ways have learnt too late lo regret them. Some at great expense have bought'the companies who owned llieiu out. Lelhbridge has piofilled by Ihe example of others and in view of exper- iences, Medicine Hat would be extremely foolish to he misguided .by arguments which denote the ridiculous liiiiils !o which an in- venlive brain may run. ren r-ot being properly shrevidners, but ht-r Ciprcssion railway. For Ihcse reasons the erudite Medicine Hat paper The icrulinccrs agreed that there should be a ballot in he cme.'iipe niarlicd for.Spencer.

Letlibridge Cycle Co. 110 5th St. S. REGARDING BOXING CONTESTS QUESTION of .'fixing Ihe amount oMhe license for Box ing-has been a subject of some conlrove.rsy in Ihc civic Council. The stand in favor of keeping the license fee at the oil rate of may be regarded as taken by those who look on sucl 'exhibitions-askance, wilh the object of keeping boxing bouts from becoming too frequent. They arc justified in Ibis vicv from the fact that in many contests of this'description evils havi crepf in. In seeking lo eliminate these as far as possible a prohibilive license is looked on as a remedy. .And Ihis is when our moral reformers fail. Boxing like many another sport is a healthy nnd manly pur- suil. With similar sport, in the circiiinslanccs of things, there come to it undesirable associations. The-policy, considering the healthful tendencies of such sport, should he constructive rather Ihan destructive. What is required is a viewpoint from it broad and not'from n prejudiced and limited perspective, lie- cause a ccrlain sport has galhercd round it a flavor of ill-repute is no reason lhat it should be killed. .Taking ils advantages, and he would be an ignorant observer who disputes Ihcsc, what box- ing needs is en courage men I in bringing inlo if a purifying pro- cess. To ohlnin Ihis it needs regtilnlion. But not the regulation which is sought to be brought about by the fixing of a license fre small or greal. What is needed, and grcally needed, is a supervisor of Ihe sport who may be denominated a Boxing Commissioner. Me should be an cxpcrl who understands nol only the game, but Ihe history and reputation of ils exponents. It would lie a mailer of judgment on his parl as to llie desirability or otherwise of matches made being allowed lo come off. Across the border there arc commissioners who have super- vision and responsibility over their respective Slates. The in- stilulion of Provincial commissioner) here would be tpiile in .order and eminently desirable. Failing (lie adoption of Ihc plrm by the province Iherc is nothing which should prevent a cUy creating an office under the lines mentioned. This could be easily done. Supcrvisirin ol boxing should not be left entirely in the hands of the police Edmonton, we believe, has some such sorl of boxing official Calgary is without one, and llttf dcferioralion of the sporf there may largely be put down to thai cause. At any rate Lclhbridge has Ihc opportunity lo lead in Ihc jnatlcr. For the preservation 6f a sport which lias in il much POINT OF VIEW The Naval Bill has passed Ihe Commons with Ihe aid of the gag.
