At, sny rate It is not wholesome- to .a.Ucnr even of tho suspicion of rumor, to float, about. And public example 'goes a MARITIME AND. THE NATURAL RESOURCES.' The Federal Government Is being pressed from both directions, east and west, to come.to a speedy and defin- ite decision as to the- natural resourc- es. On the one side we have tho Prair- ie Provinces, and on tho other ttii Maritime Provinces. With lha latter it Is broadly hinted that there Is the danger of secession from the Caaad- lau Confederation unless a speedy satisfactory Eetllenient of tho Mari- time claims is obtained from the Uov- crtunent. The Prairie Provinces are Just as iuipaileut over tho settlement of tbe natural resources, with the de'clanf- tion_ .made by Premier Stewart that. simply cannot. wait ;.auy longer for the Dominion to give us an an- svirer'aa'td whether or not this prov-' to bp.Elveii Us natural re-.

So far as the public ill aware the Individual has been spl Ited away a'y the Chief the Department to which he belong ed, and there has been nothing of pnollc investigation Into the charges alleged against him. Nor Is tho public taade-iawarn of how he has been deall ylfh or whether he Is still a member jpf the Department.

In the. matter of the police force in the city, and who an the control o! Ihe civic auth )ji-llles, it is Important that they hold o good name a.11 round, and ther should be a Jealousy lo prevcnl any thing of rumors which are not credit a'nlo. There are aware, the hu man clement In the policeman Just a there Is In other mortals. But ther _ is this to be said that the members o the police forco are obliged not onl. fo live up lo a certain responsibility but to Bet the example to those who! wrong doings they aro out. to detcc and to bring to -punishment. There cannot bn too great care exercised.In _ -the seleclloVpot Ihe members of iho i force, and if Ihcre, nre qny tnfcml.., J who have offended against the rcpu rt talion of Iho force, and by eo doing lielp to bring iho force into contompl fiotnelhing of a public example shoult bo made for the encouragement of the tellef lhal iho police force la all and furt lo-obtain some acfion at pltawa.
