do all iii bis power tn tyring forward

Canada's highways, Ho also pointed
out that the Dominion government
al the time of confederation made a
Oanadian Highway one of tho-induce
ments offered to this province— n
promise which today still stands unredeemed.
With the immense strides which
Oanada bus made of late years, and
the marked prosperity which sho enjoys at tbis time, rondfl can no longer he treated as a negligible quan -
'ity. The citizen demands and must
have, pood roads. The day is now
past when a rock strewn trail was
considered good enough lor the dis
tricts; the farmer is as much entitled to a lirst class road ns is the city
resident, The farmer always has
hcen, but be has not always impressed that fact strongly enough on the
politician and the statesman.
Now the time has arrived when the
cry for pood roads ls general. It is
a matter for congratulation on tne
part of the farmer, for those in high
places recognize that if he is not
given the transportation facilities to
which he is entitled, they will re -
reive their answer through lhe medium of the ballot box.

of the young man whose body mny
never lie recovered, as Lake HluiRWnp
is not noted for giving up its dead.
Thc deceased was about 25 yenrs
of age and unmarried. His parents
reside in Scotland, but a brother ot

ol Mrs. Innis of this city.

Case" in whieb the Ne Temere de -
cree wns invoked in order to secure

ti.-istic in nis house.
The judgment declares that although the marriage was invalid iu
the eyes of tbe Catholic church, yet
it wns capable ol belag validated at
any time. It was, however, already
absolutely valid according to tbe
marriage laws of Ireland. Tbc marriage would huve been invalid, Judge
Kenny continues, under tbe penal law
up to ls"ii because Usher bad been .i
Protestant within the previous 12
months but that law was repealed In
i-7i'. The petition would therefore
be dismissed with costs.
Tbe judge found nothing in the com

It enacts a drastic change in the
method of taking out timher licenses
for nny areas that may possibly bo
opened up in future. It provides that
these licenses mtiBt be tendered for
on thc Ontario plan. That is, that
they will be issued by tender. The
royulties will remain thc same, hut
the tenderer who offers the largest
bonus per thousand fc;t ol timber to
bc cut will he given the license, or if
the minister so decides thc bonus
may lie lor a lump sum on the whole
limit. ThiB does not allect land under license at the present time.
Thc low enacts rigid restrictions ou
railways for the prevention of Ure
and also on loggers. It compels thc
latter to clear up debris uround their
engines and along thc roads.
Thc only provision contained for
hand loggers' licenses is that the Min
ister of Lnmls may issue them ut his
discretion in districts whero no injury to crown lands or other proper
ty is likely to result. Except to Indians, these licenses can only be is -
sued to voters on provincial lists.
Penalties for the inlrlngcmcnt of
the act are made more severe.
Royalties in future will be changed
according to the grade of the lumber
cut from the timher, the grades being
divided into number 1, 2 nnd 8. These
royalties will show a material increase over old rates.
