in   regard in which it will be wisdom
tu  move slowly,    lu  connection with
the   Federal service  there is a system
uf superannuation,    and   throughout]
the   Dominion  there   is a strong feeling in favor of discarding it.   1-i most
of   the   other   Provinces, and notably
in the largest and wealthiest of them,
Ontario,   it  is  not thought ncceiiary

"From   iar-off   Vancouver,"    says
The N. Y. Times,  "comes    the   ominous news that the labor unions there
have forbidden their   members  either
>o join or lo remain iu the local   mil-
i.iu.    This action   was  prompted   by
the fact  that   the   militia   had   been
used to protect  from   violence certain
Japanese workmen who had taken the
places of   white   strikers.    The   issue
has been clearly raised in Vancouver,
audit  is   o.io the   gravity   of   which
could hardly be exaggerated,    Itisrc-
po.ted that the people the-e are great-
