Reorganize the Police Force JUDGE WINTER'S judgment in tie -police inquiry is about what expected from tie evidence Eubmitted to him. There was nothing to substantiate ihe charges of druuk- bnness and accepting laid ag- Eirist the suspended Chief of Police. though there is no question the ad- imiESion that money TTSS accepted from keepers of houses of Ill-fame for cb.arui.ble purposes, lefi the officer open to criticism. The head of a force, which haa to do with, the en- forcement a law, whirli thla class "of woman is bTeaknie oughc to keep 'bis'skirts absolutely and not have anything Trhatever to do with Htois element. Jloney taken from them the best of purposes. Is bound to :jbe interpreted in a manner detrimen- ital to the police. A police officer be so abore reproacii that a person of the criminal class ffeur approach him with money gifiB of any sort, even if. Intended be passed on to another individual. The inquiry was worthy of the ei- and the time, if for no other ireaaon. than it Sjiiniaed. ihe procedure tTAnsaotlng business In police The methods were only worthy 'jjqf a one-horse town. It is clear the nad TOO much to do, anfl on 1he hookkceptag side It was badly '.end carelessly done. A coniptete change -in the system Is necessary, and ine city, council should bring about the reform immediately. Jv.uge "Winter's comments are to tho point and worthy of adoption. To the friends of the aiis leidsd .Chief It is good to know ihit bo ras exonerated of .the more strlnus charges. The charge upon which the Judge finds a true bill, is due to a poor system more than to the chief. the inquiry, we 'believe, has conyinced the public that a complete shake uj> In the force Is necessary. There haa -been lack of discipline- in fact a. lade of recognition by nvem- bers of the force that they are chosen to enforce the law and be above as- sociation with the criminal elements In a by way. There has been too much laxity altogether. The council should put at the head of the force a man of experience and man who will be boss of the job day and bight, week in and'TreeK out. A police commission should be put in charge of the force. Take the po- lice away from the influence of the council snd put it in the hands of men "who will not be aff-cctetl by petty scheming. Now is the lime to act. The weaknesses of the present system hare been exposed and an entire reorganization will be demand- ed by the citizens. No half way me- thods will be acceptable. Should Be I SOME TIME BACK a Toron- to weekly piper has fea- turing tie promoting schemes .tof a certain J. M. Spence. who It ap- pears has made some dizzy flights In- to the realms of forming compouies .with remarkably powers but sadly tacking In financial substance. Inter- est in Mr. Spence and his exploits Is close to home by the revela- tion of the fact that Mr. Spence in- vaded Alberta and secured the charier of the "International Insurance Com- pany, Limited." This company was given "moat remarkable powers, and one critic put It has power to "do most anything except print and Issue notes." The promoting powers cf the company could hardly 'be more sweeping and as regards Insurance It power lo do hualneaa along .ities "whether now known or hereafter devSserti" It was given all the pow- !ere of a trust company, mid unlimited Iprlvlleieo in real csiato manlpulaUon. j.Thli WHS the only.charter of Ihc kind Iiaued In Alberta and wnen the .jCovernment TVUB mado cognlxnnt of Investigated ,v act. wae paeseti at the last session of Ihe lepaJalure, which makes it im- poiBible" Tor foreign companies to do business In Alberta before they se- cure a Dominion license. -Alberta in this as In many other respects is con- siderably-in advance of any other pro- vince. Interest naturally turns to Ihc re- sponsibility for Spence 'being nble lo make such a "get away" in this pro- vince and the interest increases in- tensely when it Is learned that the certlflcato of Incorporation was Issued by Harold W. Rlley, then deputy pro- vincial secretary, on May 22, JJ107- Mr. Rlley's part might have been as- cribed to an oversight in the rush of offlclal ImslnesR, 'were it not for the fact that one of the shareholders in the concern was Harold "W. It Hoy, who SB credited with owning ten shares. The original shareholders, of which Mr. Hltay.wnR one, only num- bered flerin.' and they each held ten shares valued at ?50 each. One would naturally' a eompnny TVllh the given this concern to hive'at least a half million capital ia HOtua guarantfo-'pf grosftty liiadcquiLlo. The pcoplc''hnva 11 right lo know tho relation uf Mr. 11 Huy to thla company ut the Onvo the loiters 'of incorporation.' were grtuilc.l. In fact, It ie an; obvious duly of the legislature lo conduce an invosilgutloij. There nhoiiKl ho sonic m fit us of obtaining poBRcsaJon of tlio company's boohs to ascertain how much money Mr. Hlloy paid for this stock. Tlio eluctors 1mvo n rlpht lo know, and It Is tho duly of Iho It'fils- lature to obtain the InfoniKitio'i for [hem. U may be iivgued that tho minister was responsible for the nets of his deputy. Technically that nmy ho rlglit, but no fair minded elector Is going .lo hold minister responsi- ble for Iho mere routine which his under oHlcIuls are expected ro do. No minister'could curry out. a great nd- iniulstratlve, work If he wcro hanip- cher with minor uelnlla. lie must trust hla alnff. ifr. Rlley the one man respon'slhlo for tho. Issuing of this charter. He was I rusted by the minister what was right, Tho granting of this cbartc-r wns an outrage on "the province and should be fully exposed by a complete inves-' Hxiition. Iu ibe meantinio it. Is about up to Mr. Rlley to keep quiet so far as reflecting on the Integrity of othor men Is concerned. OUR POINT OF VIEW Judge Winter's 'report points the way to many reforms in our police system. "It takes 'Jive' men to make a 'live' says the Orillia Packet, Is the Ontario town just finding that out? The City Council now hag the op- portunity of the police force on a proper looting. Let them.do It without delay. The t Duke of Connaught 13 seeing enough rain'on his noiir'through the west to him conclude that a Dry-Fanning Congress Is unnecessary. Oscar Solomon Straus, who lias been nominated for soyeruor of New York by the progressives ot that State, has the distinction of.being the first -lew- who ever, became a member of the United States cabinet. .Senator' Channcsy Depew' was a Taft supporter at the Chicago cquven- tlon, but he admtra, since 'the Ver- mont result, that the fight for the presidency is between "Wilson and Roosevelt. That's cheerful news for Taft. The Hamilton Herald is Rot blind. It is close to Western opinion wti'en it says: "But We fear that with 'all" these transportation facilities, and ev- en more, the "western ,grain-grower will still find cause for grievance. The productive capacity of the Tvest ia so great, and it is being, developed at such a rate, that It will many years before the most pressing proV lem will be where to find a market for the surplus produce- of the west The overseas market may not be able to absorb it all. When "that time It may not be long de- sentiment will be revived with a .vengeance." The Police Commission system should
