Thanks to the .new canal, the American fleet will be able to accomplish ju two or three weeks a journey which former- ly required three months and that, without doubt, will hasten the set- tling of accounts which, sooner or later, must take place between the United States of America and Japan 'or the hegemony of the Pacilic.

The second circumstance, Which makes the case of peculiar importance is that not a few persons have deep interest in having the scandal blazon- ed forth to the world. The politician concerned is so well hated that some of his eneniics would consider any weapon that should bring a desirable exposure. The i'nrnell case should show how a political cause could he rnine.-l by a leader's personal weakness and the policies with which the man now in question is identified are even more bitterly listed than was home rule :or Ireland in the days when the i'heo. Shea disclosures dealt it a staggering blow, from which it took years io recover. Sir Montague stated to a represent- ative of the Canadian Press at the i" Mount Royal Club that he had been tne impelled to take the step of leaving the management oi the line in the hands of Messrs.

Speaking of the difficulty in getting men to come to Canada for the min- istry, Mr. Wocdsworth considers that it is largely due to the lower educa- tional standards required.-elsewhere, and the larger financial remuneration offered. This fact makes it hard to get men for Canada, but those Who do come are of the right type and will fill the need much better than if the conditions were different. Mr. Woodsworth has a pleasing per- sonality, and sugt-jsts earnestness and activity, combined with a genial, kindly disposition. He is reputed to be a good organizer, a good mixer, and as pastor will doubtless make good in tho mission work confronting him In North Lethliridge. SAVE HISTORIC RELIC London, Sept.
