This "he.sald-thatr]ie.told.'ilm"thatr he-saw-ctc." bvisinoes would be done away with. A stifff of six or seven offlolal interpreters, liko Michael Basso, of Toronto, could serve all the courts of the province as most of the educated foreigners know several languages. They could attend the varlolis courts when they ^vould ba required. Such a step would clearly be in the interest.^ of justice. OUR POINT OF VIEW Saskatchewan is the banner Liberal province of'Canada. It i-oturnod nine Liberals and one Conservative to tko House of Commons. A NEWSPAPER KNIGHT With the exception of Sir Mackou-zio Bowell, Sir llufth (araham Is the only newspaper knight in Canada. Sir Mackeniio BowoU received the honor on account o! political services, while Mr. Graham was knighted on account of hia prominence In nuwspn pes- wos'i; and the activity of bis paper, the Montreal Star, in behalf of the India famine fund and the Canadian volunteers' fund. Sir Hugh Graham owns the best paying newspaper properly in Canada. Its success has been attained during his own crship. It is said that Mi: Graham would havo been recommended for honor by. tto Queen, if Sir Charles Tup-pcr had i-eaehed power in 180,C. While Mr. Graham owns the, i)apcr making the most money in Canada ho is not at the front as the leading newspaper proprietor in this country. Wo would give that place to .John noss Hobertson of the Toronto Telegram and the honor of knighthood if conferred upon him would have been more popular. He has made a lot of money out of his newspaper and has spent it to a good purpose in the cs tablishnient of the Hosj)ital for Sick Children, the Lakeside Home for Little Children, and a magnificent Nurses' Home in connection with the former. These institutions stand ns a monument to his big heart. Mr. Graham personally has been very little in the public eye while Jfr. Robertson, on the other hand, ranks ns one of the foremost Canadians of thi! day. As an author lie is known by "Landmurks of Toronto" and "A History of Jfo-sonry in Canada." In Masonry ho has held the highest offices. Xo man has done more for amateur sport than this gentleman. Some yeoi's ago he identified himself with the Ontario Hockey Association ns president and during his torins of office got after the professional crooks who were at that time ruining the game. He cleaned the whole mess up and IHit hockey in OiUorio on a very high plane. In public life Mr. Itobertson has Served ojs member of parliament at Ottawa. Time .-md ngnin ho bus been urged to become a candidate for Mayor of Toronto. If Knighthoods are to bo conferred upon any other Canadian newspaper men .lohn Ros.s Robertson ought to have the next call, in fact he was entitled to the first call. The oye.M of tomporanos people and liquor people in Alberta are upon Cloresholm. A vote upon local option is to bo taken there this month and if the temperance people are victorious contests may be expected in other towns. Where is the Canadian Club? It was organized and tlren went to sleep. It Wakened up once this year and entertained Vrosident Tory, of Alberto University. It dozed off again and has not roused up since. There is room for a good active club here. There is plenty of opportunity for the development of Canadian sentiment in this city. lly the way. .Sir Kdwnrd Clouston, of the Bnnk of Montreal, is the first Canadian to be honored with a baron elcy-nn hereoisonnus impurities whioh havo ootleoted, tl>u8 cioirin^ out tho kidnoya, hliiddor and all tho urinary p;is,"iago8.

C. Simmons has received the following letter from Hon. lludolpho l.eniieux, Pivitmnster General re rural mail delivery. 1 have pleasure in advising you that I liavc decided to undortake the delivery and collection of mail matter to and from persons residing in rural districts along and contiguous to the line of travel of all existing .stage routes of one mile and upwards in length. For ytnir information the following synop.sis of the proposed mail service may be given. .\ny person living on or contiguous to a rural mail route and not within one-quarter mile of tlio corporate limits of any city, town or village who desires his mail deposited at n given i)oint on the line of tho route by the rural mail courier may take advantage of the opportunity afforded. Such person shall iirovide and erect a box known as the "KING EDW.iTilD" mail box on tlie roadside, locat-iHl in i^ueli a manner as to be reached by tho courier without dismounting from his vehicle or horse. This box can only be obtained from the Post OfTice Department of Canada. The price of the box, together with all the iiecei-sary litlings, except only tile post on which it will be erected, cannot be determined at the present time ina.sniuch as the price will^very materially depend on the number of boxes required. Tlie Department is, therefore, purchasing tho boxes for the trial routes and erecting them, leaving Ihc price to be determined afliiig the boxes. Tlie post t(i which the box is to be permanently attaclied and which is to be- provided by the patron, must l>e approximately four fci.-t two inclus above tlic> road lc;vel, and must be erected ujion llie roadside so as to be conveniently reached by tlie courier witliout leaving his rig or dismounting from liis Each box mu.-t havt.' conspicuously painted or stencilled upon it the name of tiie, patron or owner. Any person living off tlio line of. travel of a rural mail courier is atj liberty to inirch.'ise and erect one ofj these boxes at the cross-road or any \ i oilier point on the courier'.s route for j llie reception of matter addressed to' liiiii or mailetl by him as the ca.'ic; may lie, 1 In addition to carrying the mail' to the various post ofliees on his! route the courier will, therefore, be! re(|uireil to receive from any Post-i master on tlie roiitr.' any mail matter i that may be entnisted to liim outside of the usual mail bag, and shall carry suoli mail matter to and deposit it in the projjer rural mail box placed , on the line of the route for this pnr-j /)ose. He will be required to! collect the mail from thi^ rural mail I boxes erecti.'d along his line of travel and to dep(jsit the same in the next post ()lliee at wliicli he arrives. j The services performed by the coui-; ier will be without eliarge to the per-' sons semrng or receiving the mail, but llie Department will allow tlie courier a fixed sum per annum fori each box served by aim on his route. I slKHild be glad if yoii would kindly inform me at your earliest convenience as to t!ie stage routes in ydiir Constituency (jii wliictli, in your opinion, a ruial mail service as described ab(jve might be licst established in till' jniblic interest. I might add that this will be extended to all the routes in your county as quickly as it is possible, but it is tlio intention of the Department to put them on the more important i'outi'S first. MR.
