Its practicability.has been amply proven and the city of the future lias simply to have seme such facility for handling ordinary _. cases. IJvery argument is'inils favor. In Lelbbridge drunks are sent to the police.barracks for terms of fifteen-days or a hionlb, and as a rule'there are three prisoners lo every cell, which is not only a" gross imposition on the Mounted Police, but a most un- wholesome thing for the prisoners both from the sanitary, and moral side of Ihe case.- Just fancy men huddled like sheep in which have' no sanitary conveniences and which were never intended to be used for such'a purpose.

At present the treatment of drunks from a moral .'standpoint is-nothing shortiof deplorable. This criticism is not intended as a reflection on-lhe conrl or pu the city, or mounted police. The system is at fault and the nrrungcuicnls for handling'such cases could hardly be more i crude.

These slates have not as many natural advantages for farm- ing as Alberta and yet Ihe price asked for land is lliree and four limes as great, hi view of this fact it can hardly be said that the figures asked .for ears.

Thus we find one termed "a dirty- faced another "a nervous a third "a fiendish and a fouth "a cheeky blatherskite."

THE EMERGENCY NAVAL POLICY. !r'piEUE ARE HINTS in some quarters that Premier Borden al the coming session will re-introduce his measure-providing a coritribulion to Great Britain to- aid in huildir.'y Oread- i Jibiights. It is true thai there has been no development in public i. ppinion designed lo encourage the government in this policy, and Ijl is altogether probable that if the Preiiiicr persists in such n Ccoursc il will be due lo a have his own way fo engage in a conflict with the Liberal majority in the Senate j J i in Ihc hope of making that am] riot Hie navy the outslanct- issue before llio.people." Bordeu's injured, pride and the' supposed ''superiority of his party.'lo "formulale palriotic policy "j .'must also be no! overlooked, and it is therefore reasonable lo .suppose that in the absence of anything definite in the way of a J permanent policy Mr. Bonien will atlempl lo.piish through Ihe ;5 measure his'Quebec supporters will stand for.

Mr. liordcn cannot hold his Quebec supporters on'Sny other policy than, that of a straight, and us they believe, fmaliVote to-imperial defence, and j .without his Quebec support he could nof hope to command a iiinjority in (lie House. That is the predicament the: Conservative t j leader finds liinistlf in and is in strong contrast lo the position j'i of. the Liberal parly. When Sir Wilfrid .Laiirier and his j-j crs next face the House they will do so in a greatly slrcngthciicil .'position.
