The New Bridge IT IS HARDLY NECESSARY to say that there is much dis- appointment In I.ethbridge over tiio selection of the site for the new aim solely to BcrvTtL" trallic bridge over the Belly river. This city the bridge at Dia- mond City, in order to carry the elec- tric street'railway to the mining com- munities across the river. It was here the ac'itation commenced for the con- struction of a uew bridge. 'Mr. Cnsh. when fllinistcr of Public Works, thought a bridge at Diamond City was too1 close to .the present, bridge, and Is understood to have been of.lilte.oplnion. "Arguments wore advanced-that'tiie -bridge at DIainom City would ; the farmers Just as well bridge at Nolan's crossing, but Hon.

So vexed and so complicated is the atter that the publiu must often ask self what Bulgaria really wants olnmns are written upon and Balkan therefore will perhaps iiot be uninteresting iJ endeavor to explain the actual claim Bulgaria, which forms the root of e whole .of the present trouble. In Sofia recently I asked King Fcr- nand whether I might be supplied with a written statement of Bulgaria's complaint against the Porte, and some days later received a lengthy docu- nent from the ministry of foreign .iffairs which, in the light of today's events, Is of extreme interest and-im- portance. A Religious Dispute Ever since the liberation of Bulgaria up io the present moment, the Bul- garian- Exarchate (the jurisdiction of an Exarch, a prelate of the Greek church with very wide led a perturbed existence. As long ago as the Russo-Tnrkish war it was obliged to recall the Bulgarian bishops from the diocese, and when, after the Treaty of Berlin, the 3xarch attempted to restore- them to th'eir former sees and to complete the I organization of the Bulgarian church accordance with the imperial fir- man of May 1C, establishing i synod and a mixed council, he re- elvod in 1SS3 from the Turkish min- ister of Justice the following signK (leant answer: "Wheu we determine to grant you a status in the Vilayets, then only shall we consider the mat- ter of your administration." By dir.l of constant agitation, however, the Bulgarian government at last succeed- ed in establishing for the Exarchate an oilicial status in Macedonia, and at the present moment that authority extends over seven Uskub, Ochride, Debr, Monastir, Val- ess, Novrokop and Stroumitza. lu ad- dition to these there are still teu bishoprics which, contrary to the flr- man, remain vacant because the Sui- tan refuses to grant the indispensable berats. Some of the chapels in Alace- donia have also been suppresbal. That at Hketcha remains today under seals placed there by the Turks. The question of the mi.-crl council and the synod still remains open; therefore the solution of the ouestiou ia of supreme moment to the Exar- chate and the Bulgaria government. The Turkish Mastery For the better understanding of the bearing of the issues involved, it should be borne in mind that instead of trying to assimilate the Christian nations they conquer, '.lie Turks have always considered themselves Minsters of those they have vnnn.uit.hecl. In .'lew of all that has in Macedonia in recent years, Bulgaria asserts that the insistence of the Ex- archate for the speedy organization of the prhnarv m, Ject lie settled the croflsln- a Nolan's, and he maintains that thi W aite most favored by the farm ers .north and cast of the rivei- rvei- though the Board of Tra.le claims to have had strong support for hnrl UK a synod nnd a mixed council ivj only a just and legal claim of her rights and privileges sanctioned by the fir- ma not 1S70. The Bulgarian Exar- chate does not ask for any new privi- leges; all that it demands is the res- toration of its power in Macedonia as it existed before the Ru'ssb-Tnrkfeh war. The question concerns two ad-j mlnistrative, bodies with attributes I strictly defined by .the. caaons of t church as well by' the statute of t Exarchate and the imperia'I firm lowers which cannot be delegated inyoue else, but must be exercis by the synod and .the council. To t; synod are referred all questions of tl orum ecclesiasticum. while the m io-a of the mixed council' is .to loo ifter the schools, the civil admin ration and .the organization of tl Bulgarian .nationality in Macedonia The People Look for Help The- present {position- of Bulgaria a abnormal one. According to th rman, which has the force of la the Ottoman' it ha -ell defined rights and obligations egards the Porte and the Bulgaria ation in .the (Turkish, pro which, 'however, 1t cannot es rcise or tulai-trecause of its impo ct and irregular organization. Thl ate of things continuing for year as provoked among the Chrlstia onulatioa in Turkey complaint against Bulgaria and also the imperia government. Failing to find help o protection at the hands of the lega authorities, population is naturally tempted to look, for su'cl in illegal quarters, and in, its despai has now placed its hopes ia interven tion by the Balkan League. It would surely be preferable both for the'Powers and for Turkey if they had to deal with a legally organized and responsible body, such' as th Bulgarian Exarchate, for reforms would at once become established ii Macedonia and the. difficult task o the Powers at once facilitated. This, then, is the whole root of the present trouble. Bulgaria intends to protect her Christian subjects in Ma- cedonia. She declares that the blood of the thousands who have been mas- sacred there calls today to the Powers for mercy and 'justice. She asserts that she has right on her side, and in the name of humanity it is the duty of the Balkan nations aad of the Powers to support her.

Wake Up Manitoba (Toronto Saturday Night) It is time for the province of Jfani- ba to start in and clean up its noli- cs, as the province of Ontario did ven or eight years For years st, after every election, federal or ovincial, there have been rccrimina- with charges of crookedness, ore or less well founded, against one other of the historic political part, s. When a contest is on in Winni- pc-g or its neighborhood, the wires are invariably hot with allegations of bal- lot stuffing, bribery, impersonation, tampering with voters' lists, intimida- tion, and all the other nefarious crimes peculiar to election crooks. Neither party has escaped such accu-j satious, and that which happens to be in power, either in federal or provin cial, has apparently not scrupled, so long as anyone can remember, to use its influence unfairly to gain its ends The recent proceedings following the -Macdonald election are by no means creditable to the good name of Mani- toba. It would appear that the legal authorities of the province not only strained their prerogatives to confine, until after election.
