Lyantey Sent Out to Clear Up a Bad Mess Paris. May looms up France's most diilicult colonial problem. Tlmi is saying much, for Prance's experience is only second lo that ot Great Britain. The recent savage massacre of French military officials at at the very moment when France was istab'ishing u protectorate was powerful indication to the French of the .difliculties [o lie mei and con- iiuered before the wild Moorish tribesmen to whom war is a diver- sion can be made over inio peaceful .lid successful children of France. At once was seen the need of appoint- ng an experienced and capable hand to take the helm of the tremendous work of protectorate organization. This man, France believes, has been in General Robert Lynutey. who has achieved a reputation as a skillful, untiring officer and an adroit organizer and leader of men. General 1 Budapest, .May 'lighting tfcctween the strikers, on one side and [Abe police and the troops on the oth- fer took place again yestcrdav in I Lynutey was born at Nancy in 1854. feudappst, although the strikers" had j He passed rapidly through var- ten ordered hv the labor leaders to I lous grades of military education and cease thctr Agitation arid.' return .to a- captain in ISS2. hater'" The strikers used revolvers ami ;fones and other -missiles, while the :roops replied with volleys from their :ille's.

Once the picturesque Arabs become devoted lo France, it is believed that France "tvill find in them a superb ad- dition to her colonial army. Moulay Haiid, the Sultan, thinks this is true, but h-o warns France that the process of courtship must be slow .and can- tious. Above all, the Mussalmens in Morocco, must be left unhindered and uninfluenced in their religious be- liefs and practices. Any encroach- ment by missionaries-or others will, h-e thinks, be disastrous to French intevests. M: K: COWAN, K.C.

It was he who had charge of -tin; conspiracy cast1 against .lie Fnnnerw' Hunk, heard at Lindsay. In seven days IK- examined forty-rbi-iio witnesses.

Thte the legal representatives of the transpor- tation companies firmly but politely declined to do. Mr. Cowan did not make any threats, but .he quickly de- cided on a line of action. The rail- ways were asked to submit a lot of information and were given until Ap- ril 10 10 do it. When the case was taken ii'ii again on that date, Harry Whflla, K.C.. chief counsel for the Do- minion Government, announced that all the statements asked for had not been furnished, and suggested an ad- journment. But "Mr.1 Cowan had not waited for the 'railways to submit their figures. He had been digging into the freight tariff schedules on his own account and had a big broadside, ready for the railways. He announced i .liat there were witnesses on ham vhoni he desired to and tha subsequently he had a statement to submit, Mabee Backed Him Up At this juncture the railway lawyers rlcd to block proceedings and appeal d to tiie board.

The board didn't order Ir. Cowan "to get out. Chairman Ala- has no use for .quibbles, and he id him to go ahead. Then Mr, Cow- n gave, an exhibition-of the dynamic rce which fairly oozes from his pcr- Hinlily. In exactly one hour he ex- mined, three witnesses and submit- j ted a mass of figures which showed j that' railway rates in the west1 sire j from 20 to ItJO per cenl. higher than !n the east. In conclusion he claimed that he had established n prlrnu facie cane against the railways and I hat they must now accent the onus of showing that their freight charges are not loo hish.
