And I triifit YESTERDW wo commented upon the wonderful reception being accorded Sir Wilfrid Lniirler in ' Ontario. That the demonstrations snr-: liass any ever given the Liberal lead-' er In Ontario Is evident by the tollow-� ing description of the Peterboro meet-^ ing: Of almost dramatic significance was tlie nno.vpccted and frank-spoken developmenta at the great first overflow meeting to greet Sir Wilfrid Laurler in the Grand Opera House here last night. It was a remarkable occasion. The vast rink, origlnallj designed for the one meetlnB, was packed to suflocation early in the evening. �nd ttiduaands of eager people Laurier in Ontario ' were still, outside clamoring to hear I.,aurSer. In haste tlie Opera IJoiiso was reftuisitioned and thrown open, and withlu a few moments Was crowded lo the doors. Accommodation (or further meetings was impossible, anil the hundreds still unhoused, had to content themselves with the open-air gathering on the Market Stjunve. The hatlle for admission to the Opera House was at times almost appalling. Even after all three gatherings were well under way throngs stood j)acked before the entrance. That does not sound as though the LIberni party was at IiibernVs''overywhore will taUo that ground in nil their dcalUigs with this greiit and import.nnt ((iieHlion. M that Sellg who wns expected to give the star evidence for the -state in liie case against Ivleut.

The state ha% ccrtiiinly lost a material witness. A local pa|>er yesierday iuibllslied a very conimendablo editorial uttack en the "knocker" with -a fervid plea to "knock the knocker."

OCCASIONS recently the Herald has advocated cutting down the number ot men on the city police force, when rc-organiaation is effected on the arrival of the new chief. The HeraM believes thai a police department of eighteen men is too expansive tor this city; it borders on the lujmriouB, and ifl these days of an increaaldg tax rate, every Item of e.vpendltura should /he cirediiJy scanned. As a basis on which to effect a reorganization of the police department, the Herald has secured the following figures from other western -cJtlea, and th�ir application to Lelh-, bridge might not come -amiss, in yeach case the total number of police IncUwles the chief and execntivo mem-  tiers of the staff.

In every other the ratio is considerably less. Figuring Lethbridge's population at 12,000 people, and allowing one police odicer for each thousand of popuia-tion, the number of men employed in the department, incUiding the chief, should be The Herald does not believe that the council should feel compelled to .follow this as an ironclad rule. A leeway of a couple of man TOighl be allowed, hut at the moat the Lethbrtdgo police force should not consist of more than fourteen or fifteen. Including the chief. There are certain conditions peculiar to Leihbrld(5e which would probably make fifteen men necessary for efficiency in the force. As a rule a mining centre refill!res more vigilant policing than other centres of the same size. But allowing fifteen inen, we effect a anvliig of three men, or $3000 per annum, and that saving of c.vpenso In any one department Is worth while, provided of course the standard ol eillciency can be maintained. The Associated Boards of Trade ofTicer is keeping in close touch wi:' the Southern towns as regards the car supply. If the Associated Boards can find It way of securing sufficient cars the e.xistence of the organization will have been Justified a hundred times over. In Oniario some of the towns .sporting armories are n.skiiig the Dominion know what he is talking j It is too common a hab- it among cfficials in these semi-j church organizations to come west and impute all sorts of things against tl)e entire west through what they observe probably one day in. the week In one community. We are not rushing forward to defend. the western farmer for tbose who live alongside of him year in and year out know his characteristics but this win be said and th,it is that he i.s no more of a bum tlian tha farmer ot Ontario or any other part-of the.

Bennett, K.C., M.P., is roport--rtd to he ono ot its backers. These ^lacts make interesting ita views on i.tbe navy. In its last Issue it says; 1'hore are throe aitornntlvo j)oll-cVcB fcT tU� solutioix of tho naval quoatlon-a navy built, maiinod and kept in Canada; a straight gift of millions per year lo the naval dofonco of tlie Empire: and � H combination of tho two. No one can say with autliority which policy will be adopted by Mr. i5or-den. No one hesitates t� s.iy that f'anada should bear some share of the burden. That we are not asked to do so by tho Hnipiro is no reason to disclaim our duty. This asBlstanco sliould he Immediate and genoroiiH. and in the form ot casli to bo used nt the discretiim of the Admiralty. .\t tho same time, just as we havq liullt !i branch of I lie Uoyal mint, ao also it Is as muclt a part ot our national self rkIcoiu and considerably more prolltalile industrially to build a branch navy ) as a branch mint. It would encourage the steel ahlphulUllng in tho Dominion. Be-sldos it would draw upon the youth or our land along the groat ' lakes and the maritime shores to . form a naval nillHliv, thus laying the toundftUons ot another arm of ��: defense for Cana-dlans as Canad-; lans, aa well as doing our hit as sons of the Kmplio, It is becoming mo-re evident every flny by tho declarations of CoHservu-jUvo inuu and presB, thut the party is going to adhere to the ('anudlan navy idea, with tho pTobabllity of an ernor-gency contrlbullcn. The Stamlard's vlew.smay be Interpreted us those of R. B. Bennett, and are in lino with the "keep the navy out of iioliiics" petition. What air Wilfrid Laurier has to Hay ,on naval hinttera in his Ontario tour Is of interest; "Time wns when Mr. Uorden urged tho '3i}eedy' construction ot the Canadian navy," observed Sir Wilfrid at Peterboro. "We accepted his suggea-lion and at once incorporated It In our resolution. Duf Mr. Worden is no longer In favor ot 'speedy' action. Cftuadiv can wait now. Tho motherland call w-alt now. We are told that our naval policy is not ready even yei. The appeal of patriotic (;nnad-iaiis, as I Biild last night, must bo to the warring {actions in the Borden government. We call upon thein '.o agree and to act, and If the .\utlon-jilists and tho .lingoes cannot ngreo they had better make way for other and bettor men who can." 'l^ho words wore greeted with a rc-iimrkable doinonatra-tlon, wo aro told. 'I'bo throng rose and cheered again and atjaln. Once moi-o and wlUi added emphasis the chief Issued his mandate to l-,ll)-crallnni In all |iarts of Canada.

Ward Price in tho London Daily Mail) Tho Bulgarian soldier is one of the first things that strike you in Sofia, It is not the uniform that makes the impression, for his whlt.v-brrown linen smock, rough brown trousers, and un-Iioliahod, heavy Wellington boots are ag ugly as they are workmanlike. Nor is It hi.-! bigness, nor his sun-tanned face. Dut there is an intelligence of expression and an alenuoas ot bearing in the drab companies that make you look at them twice as they tramp by. This comblnittion of the sturdiness of body and weather-beaten face that are the marks of the countryside, with the brlglituess and interest ot expreasion that are usually the stamp of tho town, give you the whole secret of the IJuigariau's excellence as war material. lie is a true peasant-of a .breed which wo scarcely know in England. He is a peasant-proprietor. He has his own land, his own cart, his own oxen to pull it; he is BatiBlled with his circumstances and interested in his work. It ho has any native in-loUigence he has every incentive to use and develop It, since the fiill P'ro-lit of it comes to himself. And ao ho possesses the strength of the country dweller without being a chnwhacQU, and tho inlolllgeuce of tlie townsman without being a weed. Dlvlaional manoeuvres are going on fifteen miles from Sofia, and the "real thing" is near enough to make it an easy poBsibllity that this may be the last training the Bulgarian army will receive before it goes out to the su- IJieme test in the attempt to wrest .Macedonia from the Turk.
