Aldermanic Interference RUMOR, and rumor is very often correct, intimates that Chief Davis has already had to put up with aidermanic interference the performance of his duties, aiit this no doubt accounts for his anxietj about the permanency of his position. If all stories are correct, Chief Gilles- pie faced the same difficulty on occa- sions. Chief Davis, however, is not the kind of a man to be hampered in doing what he considers right. He knows the law and is aware when people are breaking the law. and he is going to -enforce the law. That is un- questionably the attitude of the new chief of police. He will not he hampered by alder- nianic hutting in. As the Herald lias argued before, aidermanic interfer- ence and control of the police depart- ment practically affects its useful- ness. A force that is dependent upon: the whims of a body of aldermen' j elected one year and possibly not there the next, cannot be successful. I Under such conditions there cannot j be permanency in police policy, and the bead of the force must live in fear of losing his position because he has not met the wishes members of the council. Chief Davis Is taking the hull by the horns at the start ant Is malting it clear that lie must have a free hand, and in order to have free hand the control of the police must be taken the bauds of the council and placed under a police commission. The sooner that is done the better. In the meantime the chief must be assured that his position is permanent. Public opinion, at least intelligent public opinion, is at the back of the ne'vv chief in his efforts to enforce the law. Alderinanic interference is resented Chief Davis can depend upon it that he will have the majbrity of the citizens back him in his effort to administer th-e law fearlessly. To What Will It Lead Nogi killed himself for the sake of his dead Emperor; some Americans are willing apparently to do the same thing for their uncrowned Emperor while he yet lives, writes Main John- soii to the Toronto Star from Detroit, Michigan. At least, it looked that way in Detroit during the visit to town of Theodore Roosevelt. The incident remarkable example of the popu- larity of tlic Bull Moose. Roosevelt had just left armor- ies after a meeting- marked by amaz- ing He had gone out by a back exit, and had jumped down into the automobile wailing for "hiiri. He leaped from the tonheaii to the trout seat next to the chauffeur. Imag ine, by the any of the great Can- adian statesmen doi-Dg; any such thing. In the first place, they undoubtedly would have walked down "the steps and into the automobile by the ordin- ary method, and just as certainly they would have sat in the luxurious hack j seat. Roosevelt, however, the incar-1 nation of action, spurns stairs and j automibile doors, jumps blithely into tlie car, and then vaults into the frout seat. Exhibition Not Lost A HITCH in the arrangements for the construction of the great Australian transcontinental railway from Perth to Adelaide points to the entrenchment and extension of policy of the public ownership of utilities. The nationalization of in- dustries is an exaggerated phase of its minor prototype, the municipality- owned utilities. But the problem is forced upon the government of Australia may lead, if its solution is found to prove beneficial, to far- reaching effects in modern legisla- tion. In the Commonwealth there has a struggle between the trusts and the government, and the trust has come out, temporarily at any rate, victorious. The steel trust, it is stated, lias been most actively en- Raged in frustrating tli-a attempts of thc government to accept reasonable tenders for the supply of the rails for the line. In answer to (he call for tenders six were submitted, all of which were too high. The govern- ment then attempted to obtain rails by private means, bnt ifc was match- ing itself against an octopus whose tentacles were stretched to command every market, and it consequently failed. As a last resort the govern- ment agents, much against their own -policy, placed an order with a Jap- anese firm. Here again the trust in- tervened, and the scheme collapsed. Tho cabinet, we read, has now beenj forced to capitulate, and has decld to secure tons from abroad paying the price demanded by th trust. The moral of these ino ings is obvious, and if as a c-onse quence the nationalization of the stee industry in Australia follows, th Commonwealth be launching 01 an experiment wliich will be generallj viewed with interest. This exhibition of his vitality was not lost on the mob waiting in the back alley. Men, women and children were all themsel- ves hoarse, aud made a rush on the automobile. It is a wonder that the running-board did not break under the strain. The police were keep the crowd hut Teddy shouted. Let them And the police lowed from the side o[ 'the car, and literally struggled with each other for a chance to grasp his hand. Finally the car started, but it was with difficulty that the ox-President's admirers of both sexes were persuaded to leave the running-board. Inch by inch the automobile forced its way through the dense mass, until it of much uneertahiUy. Less than four weeks from the election, tho situation seems to be growing .more and more co in plica ted. In Toronto, most people seem to think that Wilson is sure of election, and the odds are said to be 4 to 1 in New York. But in Michigan every- one is not so sure. It is widely be- lieved that the Democratic candidate will have the largest number of indi- vidual supporters, owing to 'the Repub- split, but it isn't the individual voter who elects the President; tvad the jojnihir vote will not decide the con- est. How the electoral college, which does name the Chief Executive, will be divided it is almost impossible to fore- cast in this three-cornered contest. There are undercurrents of opinion, vhich K is said are growing stronger .11 the time, that a: Roosevelt land- litle is unite possible and that both ndividual and electoral votes will how a victory for the candidate of the Progressive party. The remark- ble way in which he has been receiv- ed this week in Michigan, a state ad- mitted even by his own supporters to he in the doubtful column, may be sig- nificant. Other close critics declare 'that the odds against him are too great, a-ad that, although his vote will be large, Wilson will be the next pres- ident. There is nothing, to do, but wait 'or the first week in November to fine out. Even then .we may have to w still longer for the meeting: of the Elcc toral College in December, and if there is a deadlock "iirtliat body the election will be thrown into the House of He resentatives. The suspense, 'therefore may be prolonged. Watch'- Roosevelt. This is an hUcros'iing time to water. Roosevelt.

Speaking campaign at present must be touched the accelerator, and the car sprang forward at an increased speed. The however, were bound not to let RooseveH go. "Stop the somebody shouted and no sooner Demand a Police Commission TT IS NOW THE TIME for select- ing the planks for the municipal platform, and fur organizing a campaign in civic reform where it is deemed advisable in the interests of all ratepayers. There is one matter which has forcibly been placed before j 'the ratepayers, and that is that there i should be a change in thc control of the police department Should the present city council fail to bring the desired change into effect, there nnaiiis only one course open to the ratepayers. This is to insist that j every candidate who hopes to obtain the suffrages of the citizens should place this policy foremost on bis p-ro- i gram. Let it be made clem- that ni one will receive support unless he I willing to abide by the wishes of the 5 ratepayers in this respect. It must by now be clearly evident j to Vvery thoughtful citizen of Leth- 1. 'bridge that placing of flu? control of the.police department where it Is is all against thc efficient 'working of the force. It, creates a feeling of in- security of tcmuro amongst thoac In j (police authority, and the consequent j apprehension is injurious not only to the police force itself, in tho uses for .which it is maintained, but reacts considerably on the general welfare of the community. Are men to regulate their actionb through .fear or favor? The unanim ous answer must be tor if this is the guiding spirit there must come about ;i rottenness in any system where it holds. Yet the present ar- rangement, unwittingly fosters this spirit. Aldermen come, and aldermei KO, the personnel of the civic council is ever changing, and human nature Is ever varying. Why leave such an important department as the police to such vagaries? There ;ire no insim... lions made, nor intended, against present or future members of the council. But he is a foolish man who leaves out of his calculations the ole- mont of human nature which must necessarily piny R part in the problem he Is dealing with. And In consider- ing this element, allowance must bo made for our Inherited weaknesses, aud perfection aimed at where, as fai- ns possible, It, can bo obtained. A police commission is necessary, emphatically imperative, ;iml until such a system is put into force the usefulness of the police force counts for almost nothing. Tho power of placing the force on a proper basis is hi the hnmla of the ratepayers, and it is up to thorn to exert it. Mr. Coderre's qualifications for a cabinet position seem to have been tho fact that ho ran for parliament four times and was elected nt thc Tight time. The -Montreal Herald says that Glen Campbell wokn up to find him- self heir to The Her- ald in inlKtnhnn. Olcn Is a .Manitoba Tory and never sleeps, said than done. Two men, one on each side of the open passageway in tho street jumped forward and fell on 'the front tires of the car. The chauffeur instantly applied the brakes, hut even then both men were knocked to the pavement. They must have been badly shaken up, but they were quite they bad stopped Teddy's automobile. The crowd was able to mass around Roos-avelt again and this time they climbed into the car, swarmed about their hero, nearly As au orator, it. is rather difficult to classify Roosevelt, lie is very differ- ent, for example, from any of our na- tional leaders. He. is not as dignified in his delivery as Uordon; he hasn't the suavity and charm found in Iiaiir- icr; nor bus he -the sweeping, eloquence of Bourassa. Nevertheless that man would be deeply prejudiced who de- clared Roosevelt to be a. poor speaker. His voice has a tendency to go to a guinea-hen falsetto. Roosevelt, how- ever, bus turned tlira defect into an as- set, and the squeaky upper range the medium for bis humorous re- marks.

Comment on Congress (Winnipeg Free Press) To admit, having attended the Dry Farming Congress at Lethbridgc is apparently, to provoke tbp .query: What did you think the value of the Congress 'wag to the country?

Tho general opinion seems to be that stinie arrangement should be made for future gatherings whereby the lectures and the exhibits would be iieaf together, instead of three miles apart, which was the cnso at Tollbridge. 'Whether this could have been managed at is outside the question nov.' that the Con- gress Is over. Tho actual number of farmers reached by the voices of the speakers was small, and there -was. unfortunately, much overlapping, but that there was much advantage to be derived from such a gathering, no reasonable person 'who attended would for .one moment deny, With the Canadian delegates at least, ther-e is n feeling that with so capable and practical a man as tho Hon. R. Motherwell as president better th'ings may be hoped for next year.
