THE WEEKLY HERALD Publiahed every -Wednesday In elghl oT TnSJe ptigaa, and cOnUlna a summary of the news of the week, local and district 1 year to advance.........11.50 8 months In advance.....Uc � tnotiths In adVance ........It*. Aldermanic Interference UMOR, and fumor Is very often correct, Inlitnates that Chief Davis has already had to put up with aldermanic interference in the performance of his duties, and this no doubt accounts for his an.ijiety about the permanency of his position. If all 810*163 are correct, Chief Ollles-ple faced the same difficulty on occasions. 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-fiuestionahly the attitude of the new chief of police. He will not be hampered by aldermanic butting in. As the Herald has argued befope, aldermanic interference and control of the police department practically affects lis usefulness. A force that is dependent upon the whims of a body of aldermen elected one year and possibly not there the next, cannot be successful, i I'nder such conditions there cannot be permanency In police policy, and the head of the force must live in fear of losing his position because he has not met the wishes of members of the council. Chief Davis is taking the bull by the horhs at the start and Is makihg It clear that he must have a free hand, and in order to have a free hand the control of the police must be taken out of the hands of the council and placed under a police commission. The sooner that is done the better. In the nieantime the chief must be assur�d that his position is permanent. Public opinion, at least intelligent public opinion, is at the back of the new chief in his efforts to enforce the law. Aldermanic interference is resented and Chief Davis can depend upon it that Iva will have the nvajorlty of the citizens back of him in his effort to administer tlie law fearlessly. Thd chief Has put It up to the council fairly and squarely. It bogina to look like a pohce commission or nothing. U tho-rest of the year lives up to the record, Sir Thomas will remember 1912 as the year of strikes. They are coming thick and fast on the C.I'.U. Canirose Is going to bnvo a ski tournnmoUtthis coming winter. Wonder if they will have to oreet hills to conduct the sport, or will the contestants make their leaps from the top of the Canadian olhce? Music will alternate with i-lieers for Wilson at the big auditorium tonight. Everybody come-there's jilcnty of room to cheer. It will be a good chance to get ready for the Yankee Thanksgiving.

It will bo a big ulght across tho Imaginary lino. Come to tho Congress aUdltorriiim and watch It from the outside. It Is tho big election nght of the year.- Tho war In the Ualknns isn't in It. There will bo one big light on at Re-glim at the end of the wwk when the repToscntatlvos of western cities meet to dlsouss tlio bonuslng ot industries. Lcthbrldgo should bo represented for It Is a matter ot vital importance to this city. This Is tho time of year the farm-l.ers watch tlie market liage. Tlie Herald Is trying to give them all the help It can to sell their crops to the best advantage. A satlslicd farmer Is" a mighty good citizen. AMERICANS RISK LIVES TO SHAKE HAND OF THE BULL MOOSE To What Will It Lead AHITCH in the arrangements for the construction of the great Australian transcontinental railway from Perth to Adelaide points to the entrenchment and extension of the policy of thfe public ownership of utilities. Tho nationalization of industries is an exaggerated phase of its minor frototype, the municipality-owned utilities. But the problem 'Which is forced upon the government of Australia may lead, if its solution is found to prove beneficial, to tar-reaching effects in modem legislation. In the Commonwealth there has been a struggle between tho trusts and the government, and tho trust has come out, temiDorarily at any rate, victorious. The steel trust, it is stated, has been most actively engaged in frustrating the attempts of tho government to accept reasonable tenders for the supply of the rails for the line. In answer to the call for tenders si.\ were submitted, all of which were too high. The government then attempted to obtain rails by private means, but it was matcli-ing itself against an dctopiis whose tentacles wei'e stretched to command every toarkot, and it consequently failed. As a last resort the government agents, much against their own policy, placed an order \vlth a .Japanese flrin. Here again the trust Intervened, and the scheme collapsed. Tho cabinet, *e read, has now been forced to capitulate, and has decided to secure 35,000 tons from abroad, paying the price demanded by tho trust. The moral of these proceedings 1b obvious, and if as a conse quence the nationalization of the steel industry in Australia follows, the Commonwoaltli will be launching on an experiment which will he generally viewed with ititerest. Demand a Police Commission IT IS iNOW THE TIME tor soloct-ing the planks for the municipal platform, and for organizing a i campaign In oivic reform wliore it la deemed advisable in tho interests ot oil ratepayers. There is one matter �which has forcibly been placed beforo �the ratepayers, and that is that there should be a change in the control of tho police department. Should the present city council fall to bring the desired change Into effect, there re-onaius only one course open to the mtepayei'B. This is to insist that levory candidnto who hopes to obtain the suffrages of the oitizans should placo this policy foremost on lils program, Let It bo made clear that no one will roceivo support unless ho 1b willing to abide by the wishes ot tho ratepayers in this respect. It must by now be clearly evident to '^very thoughtful citizen of Leth-ibrldgo that the placing of tlie control of tho. police department where it la Js all against tho efficient working of the force. It creates a feoling of In-ficourity of tenure amongst those In ipolice authority, and tho couaequont Apprehension Is Injurious not only to i the police force itself, in tho uses for �which It is maintained, but reacts considerably on the general w'elfare of the community. Are men to regulate their actions through fear or favor? The unanim ous answer must be "No," for if this is the guiding spirit there must come about 41 rottenuesa In any system where it holds. Yet the present arrangement, unwittingly fosters this spirit. Aldermen come, and aldermen go, 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 are no insinuations, made, nor intended, against present or future tnembers of tho council. But he is a foolish man who leaves out of his calculations the ole-nient of human naluro which must necessftrily play a part In the problem ho Is dealing with. And In consider-ins this element, nliowanco nuisl bo made for our Inherited weakneRBos, and perfection aimed at whtre, as tar as possible, It can ho obtained. A police commission Is ueccsanry, emphatically Imperative, and until such a system Is put Into forco tho usotuluess of the police force counts for almost nothing, The power of placing tho force on a proper basis is In the hands of the ratepayers, and It Is up to them to oxert it. NogI killed himself for the sake of his dead Kmperor; sotne Americans are willing apparently to do the same tiling for thelf uncrowned Kmpcror while he yet llyes. writes Jlaln Johnson to the Toronto Star from Detroit, Michigan. At least, It looked that way in Detroit during the visit to town ot Theodore Roosevelt. The incident Is a remarkable example of the popularity ot the Bull Moose. Roosevelt had just loft the armories after a meeting marked by amazing enthusiasm. Ho had gone out by a back exit, and had jumped down into the automobile walling for "hiin. Ho leaped from the tonneau to the front seat ne.xt to the chauffeur. Imag ine, by the way, any of the great Canadian statesmen doi-ag any such thing. In the first place, they undoubtedly would have walked down the steps and into the automobile by the ordinary method, and just as certainly they would have sat Ih the luxurious bacli seat. Roosevelt, however, the incarnation of action, spurns stairs and automibile doors, jumps blithely into the car, and then vaults into the front seat. Exhibition Not Lost, This exhibition of his vitality was not lost on the mob waiting in the back alley. Men, women and children -they were all there-yelled themselves hoar.=e, and made a rush on the automobile. It is a wonder that the running-board did not break under the strain. The police were trying to keep the crowd-''back, but Teddy shouted. "Let them come." And the police bowed from the side ot the car, and literally struggled \rflU each other for a chance to grasp his hand. Finally the car started, but it was with dilliculty that the o.x-President's admirers of both sexes were persuaded to leaiVQ the ruiming-board. Inch by Inch the automobile forced its way through the dense mass, until it reached the street. The chauffeur touched the accelerator, and the car sprang forward at an increased speed. The people, however, were bound not to let Roosevelt go. "Stop the car," somebody shouted and no sooner said than done. Two men, one on each side of the open passageway in the street jumped forward and fell on the front tires of the oar. The oUaulTeur instantly applied the brakes, but even then both men were knocked to the pavement. They must have been badly shaken up, but they were quite liappy- they had 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 shook his bauds off, luid kept yelling "Hurrah for Teddy!" "Good boy, Teddy!" and other endearing epithets Bowed Rasponses Roosevelt did not object to the crush in the least. Ho showed his tii-mous teeth in his -bvoadost smile and beamed bonignantly. Ho didn't 'otand up, for there wasn't room tor him to do that, but with his head, the only part ot his body that was free, he kept bowing responses. Receptions such as this do not fall to tho lot of every man.  Roosevelt arouses more hero-worahlp than any one else in the world todn.v-this is probably not an over-Btatemcnt ot tho tacts. AVhethor he will be President or not is hard to sayi Conversation with Michigan people reveals a state ot much uncertninity. Less than tour weeks from the elotrfion, tho situation seems to bo growing .more and more complicated. In Toronto, most people seem to think that Wilson Is sure of election, n'nd the odds are said to be 4 to 1 in New Y'ork. But in .Michigan everyone is not so sure, it is widely believed that the Democratic candidate will havtj the large'ot number of individual supporters, owing to the Republican spilt, but it Isn't tile individual voter who elects the i^reskienti and the l)opular vote will not decide the contest. How the electoral college, which does name tho Chief Executive, will bo divided it is almost impossible to forecast in this threo-cornerud contest. There are undercurrents of opinion, which it is said are growing stronger all the time, that a Roosevelt landslide is quite possible and that both individual and electoral votes will show a victory for tho candidate of the Progressive party. The remarkable way in which he has been received thi'3 week In Michigan, a state admitted even by his own supporters to !)e in the doubtful column, may be significant. Other close critics declare that tho odds against him are too great, and that, although his vote will be large, Wilson will be tlie next president. There is nothing to do. but wait for the first week in November to find out. Even then .we may have to wait still longer for the meeting ot the Electoral College in December, and if there is a deadlock in' that body the election win be throv/u into the House of Representatives. The suspense, 'therefore may be prolonged. - V/atoh Roosevelt. This is an interosting time to watch Roosevelt. He is undoubtedly at one of the great crisjs of his career-ho .lias had them with strange regularity over since ho went into politics. His b|)eaking campaign at present must be producing results. As an orator, it is rather dililcult to classify Roosevelt. He is very different, tor example, from any ot our national lenders. He is not as dignified In hla delivery as Borden; he ha'su't tho suavity and charm found in Laur-icr; Tior has he the sweeping eloquence ot Bourassa. Nevertheless that man would be deeply prejudiced who de cinred noosovelt to bo a poor speaker. His voice has a tendency to go to a guinea-hen fnlsefto. Roosevelt, how over, has turned thi's defect into an as sot, and maikos the squeaky . Upper range the ratdlum tor his humorous remarks. Fundamental and general problems, such as justice, opportimity, character, and life, ai'o the mainstays of Rdoac-velts' talk. It is probably tor thi'.-j reason that tho KngllHli "Uyslander," for e.xamiiie, pictures him in a cartoon as a negligible head, and labels him, '"I'ho Prince of Bores." Tiiere is just enough truth in tho "bore" part of ii to give it substance; to represent him us lacking hi bruins, howover, la .a serious blunder, tor, Whatever else Roosevelt is, ho is clovor enough. Even his enemies say ho is ils clever as the devil, and that is high praise from an opponent.

L�thbrldge Praised (Nauton News) it was a great undertaking for Loth-brldgo to entertain such a body; but ijdthbridgo made good. And the whole Dominion will be benefitted by this success.

Roughly, the Congress is said to have Cost $100,000, and now that It is over. It is easy to see many thlhfjB in the nrrangemeiil which might havo been bettor done, and whereby moro people could Imve been reached, Tho general opinion seems to b� that sOnife arrangement should bo made for future gatherings whereby the lectures and the exhibitk would he near together, instead of three miles apart, which was the caso at Lethbridge. Whether this could have been managed at I�thbridgo Is outside the <(Ue6tlcn now that the Congress Is over. Tho actual number of farmers reached by thp voioes of tho speakers was small, and thcTe was, unfortunately, much overlapping, but that there was much advantage to bo derived from such h gathering, no reasonable person 'who attended would for one moment deny. With the Canadian delegates at least, there is a feeling ^that with so capable and practical a*man as tho Hon. W. R. Motherwell as president better things may he hoped for next year.
