The figures are 773 aa against 807. During the past fiscal year 31 Juveniles were made wards of the government and may be classed as more or less incorrigible group. These are the figures. The prob- lem remains as acute as ever as we tee the numbers of youths who pass through the juvenile courts. Every case must be studied ana judged on its merits. This is no small task in. itself and the feeling aas long been held that a regular Juvenile Court Judge should be appointed for Tjethhrfdge.

In lathbridge our police magistrates, who are also juvenile court judges, have done excellent service in the field of juvenile delinquency. They have crought admirable common sense -and understanding to bear in coping the various cases brought be- fore them. They nave studied the problem and "rays of meeting this serious social menace. They nave been patient and merciful although firm when, firmness was necessary. But our two magistrates are busy men in handling the regular day to day business that comes under their Jurisdiction. Often the juvenDe cases may come before them after an exhausting day on the bench and knowing one is impressed with the need of additional judicial help in handling juvenile cases.

All will agree this but there is much to be done tc insure our youth the welfare services they deserve, especially those youths who get on the wrong path. We have long realized the need o.f a home or art industrial farra for this class of youths. Some of our best authorities on the sub- ject advocate the Borstal! system as it has been developed in Great Britaia.

Tne West has been standing the gaff of long haul freight rates ever since this part of the Dominion was settled. The freight on a light delivery truck from. Oshawa or Windsor is abotit Sl-50 a truck. Four tracts come to a car, making SSQG freight on a carload of trucks from East to West. Fifty tons of from Lethbridge to Toronto would cost S550 at the prevailing freight rate. We have never heard anyone ia the West suggest that we_ nave no automobile industry in Canada just because ve have to pay S500 to bring a. carload of Eastem-buUc cars or tracks to Alberta. Perhaps it would be good for the economy ot Canadian railways if the oeople of Ontario stopped whining- about the cost of freight on Alberta coal, and took s. leaf said in this Toronto soeech con- firm the belief that he. like Mr.; Duplessis, is still chiefly concerned. ff Eighty years ago the func; Ontario's keeping a firm hand on the revenues tha: flow to all the other the accident of its geographic _ tion and its earlier industrial vdooment. The argument with which Mr. Drew supports his claim to exclusive provincial taxation fields is worth repeating at some length, for if it be sound, the Dominion's case is weak. Ke says: The federal system does not create a dominant central gov- ernment exercising authority over subservient local govern- ments, all governments are autonomous within their own fields of legislation. The provincial governments are solelv responsible for most of the laws which have the great- est effect upon the daily lives of the people. To obtain the money necessary for the per- formance of these duties, the provincial governments were given the power to raise money by direct taxation. To carry out their much wider but less per- sonal responsibilities, the Do- minion government was given the power to raise taxes in any way. This is the one mani- fest weakness in the British 'North America Act ana it is a which has led to the ard a- disre- "ivea bv the Anyone wno unnss tnat general, rmi-w to review what happened after, t World War I.
