In the one case it man s handi- work shattering itselt against the'giganuc struct- ure of nature. In the other it is a iabnc design- ed and built b> man. sent to destruction by that Which he had "also fashioned But in both cases ture played a prominent part in bringing about the catastrophes It was the submerged ice- IJlti her" with the Titanic, a coal steamer with the Empiess of Ireland as resultant, and the fog as attendant cause Mans ingenuity in shipbuilding has done a great deal to triumph .over the dangers of 4. the'sea, but not jet proved itself invincible There is absajs that unreckoHed and indefinable factor, call it an'error of judgment, carelessness, or which, enters into the scheme, and brings these triumphs of genius to naught A sudden impact, as in the case of the oi Ireland, and the colossal of men's hiain and becomes impotent, imd over a thou- srnd hving beuigs perish in the course of a few; minutes. The occurrence look place in the early hours of the morning, at a time uhen those on board were afforded the least opportunity to avail themselves of means of safety It'vsould be dif- Ticult to imagine that the best organization for jduncliing boats and making provisions for safe- ty would, under the circumstances! have been of any avail in minimising the loss pOife. T J'On'an occasion like the'present the ways, of pi-oyidence appear inscrutable. It may be per- haps that there is in it a necessary repetitionrof the lesson of the TowSTof Babel, 'tliafman, with 'aft his skill cannot successfully defy nature. In his inability to provide against all contingencies hQ is a mere puppet. Is it to keep us from becoming too arrogant, pr to prevent us from being lulled into ,a false sense of security, that these stupendous catas- trophes, -which from h'me to. lime occur, are necessarv? Who can tell? (throw the responsibility on the public, and so absolve theniseh es from anv censure, which may have arisen In this cannot be altogether blamed. The for the change in the car system was in the interests of ecomony, and, therefore, m the interests of the public It is only'fair that this should not be misconstrued. The Herald has every sympathy with the body represented bj the Trades and Labor Coun- cil in its endea% or to right any appearing rung We have no intention of unduly criticising its proposed action. Nor do vie hold a brief for the commissioners; But before the community is put to the tiouble and expense which a recall would entail, it is onl> right that its gravity should be appreciated, and the-matters regarded as grievances be considered with the utmost care The -oil b6om took second place yesterday, Betwixt human Irfe-and material gain there die no two choices >J Mexico seems to be forgotten for the mom- ent, but Huerta, according to last reports, is still residing on Uneasy Street.

Londoi erfc Henr; in -8tplr.es, who jult reeerillyjslqceeaed Vice-Admiral Safety First" Some men, sometimes, can board the flying street car or "monkey with the buzz-saw" in a mill 01 and get away with it But that's how happen. Some men, sometimes, can shave'with an open blade razor and avoid cutting themselves. But agree mat the chances are against it. Gillette Safety Razor was the practical forerunner of loday's "Safety First" movement" What erigfc neers are doing now to safeguard tools and transportation, King C. Gillette did ten years ago for that much used tool, the razor. And while he made the SaZGf- zssds it keener, harder and handier than the old open blade. i-j That thin, electrically tempered blade, gripped rigid in the adjustable holder, gives the cleanest, smoothest and quickest, as well as the safest shave ssan has ever enjoyed.

THE THREATENED RECALL FIRST ruffle that breaks the hitherto calm of the commission form of govem- fiient comes in the shape of the resolution, pas- ied by tlie Trades and Labor Council, to put in- io operation what is as the recall. Com- mission government in Lethbridge has been, in existence barely five months when this mode of .expressing dissatisfaction is originated. It is a step, however, which should not be lightly under- taken.. It requires consideration.'- There are certain allegations made which re- quire to be proved to the hilt, anil their wcight- iness thoroughly sensed before they are looked on as material matters of grievance. Unbusi- nesslike administration, and indiscretion, are vague terms which can be easily defined accord- ing to particular opinion. However much grievances may be fell by a certain body it would he the better pnrt'ln bring 'these personally to the notice of the commission- ers, 'and await explanations which may IhrbW a tiew light on them before any drastic action is .token. The one man car system appears to be an out- Standing grievance. In putting this into force it cannot be said that the commissioners acted with any degree .of arrogance. The matter was plac- ed in the hands of. the-people; and by their de- cision the commissioners guided. This clourse need not have been hut the municipal government, thought it the jnore advisable and judicious proceeding.'lit If the commissioners are; 'recalled because of the one-man-one-ear decision, will it be nec- essary to recall the 415 voters who .favored it when the plebiscite taken. Expert Reynolds says the oil: indications in the south are much more marked than those in the Okotoks field. Let us hope- the success of the field is also "much more marked." Churchill would be an aviator. Canadian politicians find it easy enough to go up in the air without becoming a devotee of such a risky game. If the people of Southern Alberta only real- ized what a natural beauty spot the park at Wat- erton Lakes is, and if the government would ad- just its internal differences as to that much need- ed'bridge.'ihe park would soon become a rival, of Ihe Glacier Park on (ha American side just to the south which is becoming so popular. OTHER VIEWPOINTS "During the regime of Sir Wilfrid Laurier he numbered.among his inost stalwart support- ers hundreds of Canadian manufacturers, but it is unreasonable to expect 'their co-operation in any future policy which will result in closing down their own factories." So says Industrial Canada, and the candor of the statement is only equalled by ihe. supreme selfishness it exhibits. The Liberal parly needs to congratulate itself on having sluikim oil' those who on their own ad- mission arc simply parasites living on any pnrtj which provides them with nutriment in (hi shifpc of Phoenix, From ho was commodore at Hong Kong and in 1910 was appointed' superintendent at De- vonport dockyard, a post which, ho held until tile end of last year. Admiral Stokes married m 1SS2 Maude, only daughter of L. Simpson, of. Kingstown, Canada. Much sympathy is expressed at Qiieenstown for the widow and for Admiral Stokes' mother, who is stay- ing at Admiralty House.
