Fake settlers are the greatest detri- ment to the preservation of forests, in that experience has shown that the land has been left by them in a state useless for any purpose. When Mr. Hcndricks says that governments should do away -with them by resist- ing political pressure, his remarks must meet with general endorsation. With the erection of telephones a good deal has been done towards the mitigation forest fires. lJut all the same what is lacking is a system for 'controlling these great national as- sets. Until such a system is adopted must remain-the danger of the destruction of forests by tire. The jilan called for toy Mr. Hendricks is that of placing the forest service un- der civil service regulations. When this is brought about the supervision of forest districts will be handled much in'the same way as a lire chief does his work In cities. For practical purposes this is everything that eaa be desired, and the advice given by the president of the forestry associa- tion is "one. .which the authorities should lose no time in taking up. In countries like Great Britain, France, Germany and India the de- partment of Woods and Forest is a civil service one, ami this system has been proved" to be beneficial not only in preservation but in afforestation. The science.of forestry may be said to be a comparatively recent one. The importance-of the scheme in the pol- icy orf nature great forest areas pi has to-be; recognized, and tbeir uses are possibly ino more apparent than in The meas- ures are most commendable, wloney spent in obtain- ing the best means for; safeguarding" our forests may be looked upon in the light of a "national insurance.

Red Hats (Montreal Witness) It is an extraordinary rumor that emanates from Quebec that" Pope proposes to elevate two Canadian bishops to the College of Car- tlinals. This rumor has it that Mon- seigneur of Valley field, is to iiiiiuu a Cardinal of the Curia, and transferred to, Rome; 'while Archbish- op McNeil, recently transferred from Vancouver to Toronto, is to be made a cardinal, and foead of the church in Canada. The College of Cardinals whose one supreme -function is the election of a pope consists of but seventy members. At present thirty- five out of an existent membership of sixty-five are Italian; .All but twelve Prison Labor THE FINDING, of suitable work for prison inmates so that they not only be made- useful of society on regaining free- dom, but to help in relieving the com- munity, on whom they have preyed, from being taxed to support them, is one which is well engaging the minds of authorities not. only in this prov- ince, but all the civilized world over. prison reforms this, from an economic standpoint, is the most de- sirable, and benefits conferred are twofold. The experience of the plan carried on in the City of Michigan prison is illuminating, and aft'ords an object Ics- 'son in the utility and common..sense of the present day movement. Here three million pounds of binder twine manufactured by the prisoners been sold direct to farmers this year. -The average price obtained was two the market price 'of the '.trust-made twine. To -establish the of tlie public money Xvas used, and, according to the state- of tho warden of the prison, the liabilities were more cov- ered by its assets, and u subatantial inn rice t hftf" been found for the pro- duct of the plant. t Irial-oC -tlie-iaduatr-y was- an experiment, -but that it has worked out satisfactorily is shown by the following: remarks: "For tho first time since the twine industry was established here every round of twine has been sold, and the .floors are swept clean. Twine manufacture is the one industry which can solve the convict labor problem. It furnishes a good twine Ib the farmers of the state; it gives, employment to the inmates of tho prison, and it renders Ihoin wholly self supporting." In .searching for prison industries thosu which are primarily of import- ance to exISting needs, and which dt, not interfere with free labor, bo aimed at.

Outside of continental Europe there 'but six cardinals, one in Englandt one in Ireland, one South- America, and three in-the United States. Canada, though she has'for a good while been, and 1ms now btou ack- nowledged" to be the chief seat of the faitbful, has had but cue cardinal, the late Mpnseigneur Taschereau, and all have looked to see his place filled by the very eminent prelate Tvho now rules in Montreal.

It docs not seem likeiy-.-that while the whole continent of ...South America, every country which is Catholic, can only secnre one cardinal, Canada, unly about a third of 'which is Catholic is suddenly to be accorded two. TO skip over the very capable Archbishop Bruchesi. of Montreal, who so bril- liantly engineered the Eucharistic Congress, for Monseigneur Kmard, of Valleyfield, is almost as strange as is the idea of making an English-speak- ing cardinal the resident head of the church here. All the same 'two car- dinals for Canada would appear to us to be less than her sharu.. One would think, apart from personal am- bitions, that it ivouM have occurred to who are seeking the growth, efficiency and character of .the church that those ends would be furthered by making its cardinalatn less repre- sentative of countries where the re- ligion is "fast dying out, as in France, Italy and Spain, and making it more representative of those cotmfrics where it has a real vitality a-s in Ire- laud, the United States and1'Canada.

Judge .RiiHs'll, whom the Toronto Board has aslted to resign frorA the 'bench to accept the position of corporation, counsel at a .liEThdsome salary, Is one of the besVknown members of the Ontario justiciary. He perhaps'has done more tfrnn any other Canadian judge of the present generation to impress upon the-public in general and the legal profession in particular the practical importance of maintaining the dignity of the courts of law. He always In- sists with scrupulous nicety upon the observance of decorum in the court rnnms where he presides, and 'any- thing in the way of slipshod practice in any proceeding he never hesitates to condemn. Regarding the proceed- ings in the courts of la'w as solemn public functions, he will not allow levity there, and prohibits the use of slang or vulgar remarks. As a result he has been described as a. powerful educating and refining influence In IIio land. He is a most capable judge and although young lawyers usually fear a first appearance before him on account of his insistence upon abso- lute regularity, they soon come to realise that, far from there being any Ciiuse for fear iu appearing b-efore Judge lliddoll when they have their cases well in hand, there is much advantage in going'before a Judge, who, before everything is thoroughly and systematic.
