prosecution and defense. Magistrate Conway found them all
guilty and imposed a fine of $10
each and costs, which amounted
to an additional $2. Summonses
were served by Constables Scarlett and Bowler on Friday, Oct.

belt accessible for the whole
length of the trail. Six miles up
from the bridge a large creek
comes in from the west; up
which a branch trail four miles
long was constructed.
The trail at the head of the
creek runs across a gravel bar,
and over grassy ridges onto a
tongue of the glacier, which at
this point is three miles wide,
and is easy to get on and off of.
Once over the glacier, the trai
runs down Cottonwood creek on
a gravel flat to the first timber,
a distance of two and one-half
miles.
Across this open ground and
on the glacier it is marked out by
mounds, built of rocks, and
placed in prominent positions.
When the timber line was
reached on the Cottonwood three
to four feet of snow fell on the
summit and the party was forced
to pull out of the country.    Tim

the Progressive government a clear majority of one m the chamber.   Should Liberals, Conservatives, Labor members and
Independents be able to unite against the
government, which is not likely to occur
once  in  four years, the administration
would still be saved by the casting vote of
the speaker.   Professor Bracken is therefore in a position to declare and carry out
any policy which his own group can  accept.   In this he is happier than his Liberal predecessor.   Mr. Norris carried on
the government in the last house by the
favor of members of other parties.
CHANGE   OF   GOVERNMENT
DECISION of the Conservative members of the Imperial parliament to go into
the impending election as a separate party
involves important political consequences.
This resolution has been adopted by a
majority so large that the dissent of the
Conservative leaders in office could not
prevail against it. As the Conservatives
in the house comprise a large majority of
the government party the decision was a
peremptory invitation to Conservative
ministers to withdraw from an administration led by a Liberal and containing
several Liberal ministers. This course
will, however, not be necessary, because
Lloyd George is tendering the resignation
of the ministry. The next step will be the
organization of an administration with a
member of the majority party at its head.
FAVORABLE   BALANCE
RETURNS of Canadian trade for the
past six months show an increase of $52,-
000,000 in exports and a decrease of $15,-
000,000 in imports as compared with last
year. In the last six months the excess of exports over imports was $24,000,000, whereas in
the same period last year the excess of imports
over exports was $43,000,000.
A favorable change of $67,000,000 in the;
trade balance is a cheerful indication. There is1
reason to believe that the large grain crop of this
year will make the balance for the second half of
the fiscal year still more favorable. It is particu-
Jarly gratifying that this situation should arrive
in the face of the United States emergency tariff,
and that it is likely to continue in spite of the so-
called permanent Fordney tariff.
It is another interesting but not a surprising
feature in Canada trade and tariff that though the
imports have declined the customs revenue has
increased. Most business men knew from the beginning that Mr. Fieiding's tariff changes were
on the whole in the direction of increase. The increases wer9 more and larger than the decreases.
As a revenue tariff the new one beats the old by-
many millions. Protectionists have to admit that
on the whole protection has noi been reduced.
The fruit interest has some ground of complaint
over the change of the dumping regulations, but
manufacturers as a class have no grievance over
