Plncher Creel'verumeut is a very ilifferent thliiR from a private business conccra, and never can be operated upon e.\artly the,same basis as the latter, the nrKument still holds good that to reach that high state of efliciency, so much desired, those features which arc most conducive to efficiency in business organization must he applied to municipal organization. The kernel of the direct commission plan is that It applies the eflict lency features otiirivnte business to municipal gove-mmcut. That Is the secret of its succe.=8 wherever adopted. The fact that the aldermanlc system -does not embody the efliciency features of private business is the reason that it Is aonerally conceded under twentieth century conditions, to be a failure. The wonder of It is, not that the aldermanlc system has fallen down under twentieth ceiUury conditions, but that, under the aldermanlc s'j-s-tem, we have been able to do so 'well as we hnvo done. BETWIXT AND BETWEEN THE \VAR in the Balkans la now' entering on a now phase, and - " ns surmised, objections are al-Teady.boing placed in the way of one of the belligerent states, Servla, �carrying out its program of ambition. The Triple Alliance, we read, does not intend to stand idle, and allow the victors to share the spoils, which In this case, public opinion will agree they have legitimately earned the right to do. The prospect affoijded is something In the way of a European embrogllo, and tho Triple Alliance will be a hard force to contend against. Now it will be interesting to watch whether it will be a case of might against right, or it the much talked of arbitration will be allowed to prevail. � The Bal.kan states are at present flushed with victory and are, conse-.fluently, in a dangerous mood to bo trifled -with. Thoy have gone through much sacrifice,. expenditure, ' and bloodshed to attain their national The Balkan War ambition, and are not likely to brook lamely the contingency of having the .cup dashed from their lips. As a confederation they w;ould be a very powerful one, and a decision as to territorial expansion favorable to all concerned would be extremely difli-cult to engineer successfully. It Is a case of the neighboring powers being distinctly hostile to the extension of territory to the seaboard, while those who are at a distance appear to have a passive symi)athy. Wo admire the undaunted spirit ot these states and the courage and energy displayed In pushing forward ,to their object. As the French in the Franco-German war shouted, "A .Berlin," so these valiant mountaineers are crying out, "To the Sen, to tho Sea." History tells us that the former failed to attain their desire, and it remains to be seen whether in a dlCiecent manner the same frustration, ot hopes awaits a gaiUant nation which has fought so well. OUR POINT OF VIEW . The war growls are now heard at the various capitals in Europe. Let wa hope there will be no bUliig. The straw votes were all for Theo-aore Roosevelt hut tho real votes ble:w away from him baddy on elec-.tlon day; - � Straw voles didn't show tho way the election was golna: 111 � Uncle 'Barn's country. Most ot them -were ,;for Toddy. i SpoUano tried straight commlssiorf � igovernment for a year and that it .'�has met with tho approval ot the ycitiznna was proved by tho detoat of  'lon ntte-mpt to repeal the system. Ninety per cent, ot the wheat grown in Southern Alberta this year is grading No. 1 and No. 2 and is the best milling wheat grown on the North American continent. Send that fact broadcast. Talking of finances, it the city could land a gentleman of leisure who appeared in thc police court a couple ot mornings ago, all qualms for the future ;could be laid to rest, and the task of filling the shoes of the retiring finance minister would not be such a.Herculean one after all. This particular financier had John D. Rockefeller taking to the high ones when it came to the frenzied finance stunt. The oil king is in the Infant class in comparison. It seems that in whiling away the hours of a busy day this scion of the line of Mercedes took on a jag of Gooderham'a best that got him in bad with the cop on tho beat, and he rested the night in the cells. In-the morning, according to" the usiial custom, the cadi ?oaked him the costs of the coirrt amounting to three dollars. The victjm codld produce only one single simoleon and it looked bad for ten days in the clink. However, his latent talent came to the surface, and by putting up a strong line ot con to his half dozen fellow prisoners, he raised the two dollars necessary to stand between himselt and a job breaking stones at the instigation of the jail authorities; The other fellows were wondering how they came to part with two hard-earned dollars with the money market so tight, when one of the obliging cops, sent out by our friend to intervie\v another friend in need, came back with two dollars more to add to Uie relief fund. So he departed from'the Hotel de Davis with two dollars in his pocket, one more than he had 'when he went in, and paltf his fine besides. That guy would he hailed as the saviour of lUs country it he could work a similar stunt in the treasury department. Almost every country is bragging about the. superabundance of the crops but the cost of living remains the same. Who gets the money? Tho farmers suffer lower prices -as tho penalty ot abundance.

Archie McLean. Tho provincial secretary and the doctor went north earjtyiu tlfeifnli to see for themselves that last great west known to the world as the Peace River country. There they saw and waxed fat and had the time of their lives. During most ot their journey into the great nortiiUiud they had with them members of the .Mounted Pclioe who have patrolled tjie big stretches in the Peace for so long that they know every foot 6t thfe countrj-, all the stopping places and all the best modes of travel. It was a great trip all round. ; When they lefi.the, last settlement they had visitedjj bound on the first lap ot the return journey, they were" accompanied by a sergeant ot the police. Now in that country, when the police start out with strange gen tlemen foi: ,tho- centres of civilization, the settlers tand natives have their own opinion. And white bro thers being somewhat scarce in that almost untenanted land, the residents are very garrulous when they meet up with strangers. So they asked questions whenever they m-at the party. They wore strange questions and were not always complimentary to the two strangers with the police Their remarks'*-might possibly have been accentuated by tho fact that shaving is more of a luxury than a necessity on tho outposts ot civiliza tion, and even the provincial secretary did not look his best. "Picked another ripc one, eh. Sergeant?" said one lone traveller, indicating tlie cattle king ot tlic south who was riding in the back seat of tiie well- known police democrat. m^Mm �nil 1 ,i T '(/^ V Brings Solid Comfort to Old People THE pf^RrccTioN All winter long-on the Zero days and the windyi blustering days-the Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater gives them real solid comfort.

"Bigamy?" "Gee, hc looks like a bad one." This from another. The Doc, riding In the front seat 'with tho sergeant, seemed to escape such rude jibes, and enjoyed himself immensely.. Ills' delight knew no bounds espoclally when he could got in a word edgewise, and name the terrible crime himself. Tho cabinet minister was branded with every crime set forth in the criminal tode before thoy parted company with the policeman as they approached civilization. What might liave been said if the trio had come all .the way on to ISdmoutou together can only be imagined. As it was the Doc claims that he had a shave and three baths before presenting himselt to any ot his friends in tho capital city. It was a great trip, alright. * � It's funny when the talk runs to criminals how many little stories of human interest one can run across In a day. This one happened lately, and shows what a criminal will do when backed up in a corner.

It seems that when being searched in the local police station tho second lloor gont had secreted a ten spot where tho cops had not found It. After being sentenced he was taken to the llttlo red brick institution to the east to begin his twenty years, and in tho regular course ot ovonts was stripped for tho usual bath bo-tore being garbed In tho regular unl-form. While this preliminary was In progress tho guard in charge noticed that McKay was ncrvoua and rotuaed to say a word. Ho kept .his mouth inovlup In u peculiar way, and the guard told tho long term gent to "cough up." i.lo refused t.9 cough until ' pressure was applied to his noso.
