At. the  first,  blush   all    this   appears  quite reasonable', but  Till-: -JIES'S STORY  puts tht; matter in an entirely ditt'erriil  light, antl if the company are merely  .-landing on a matter of etiquetLe, or  splitting hairs as it were, the public:  vvill not htiltl tlie.ni guiltless for being  thus seriously inconvenienced,  ���������/riie gliev.-UK-es alleged by the  'operator-- are many and their demands  appear to be; reasonable.

( ", ���������       *      '  THEY INTEND T.) FIGHT.  Thai it is the intention of both  parties to the trouble to fight, the  matter out, is evident from theii tit-  tit title towards each other. The  oiiicials of the company aie supplying  the places til'the ttrikt'r.s with all possible tin-patch antl claim thai only in a  few istilated cases is traffic interrupted,  am! an order issued yesterday notifies  operators lo vacate company's pieiui-es  within 21 hours, bag antl baggage. On  the ol her hand the men display jti-t as  .much deteriuiuatioii to fight ton tini-ii.  They claim that there has never been  such a complete tie-up before, notwithstanding the company's icporls to the  contrary. They ,have .something like  1.000 members on the system and they  are all out to stay. Theii oiganiz-ation  is an international oiie anil their funds  tire in a position to enable them to  stand a siege i.f six intuit lis if necessary.  They have',the sympathy and have hail  assurances of the active, support ol" 'the  oilier railway organizations. All of  which is e:l.timet! by them and they  fail to t-ee how they can lo--e the  struggle. If, as is said"* by some who*  should know, the stand taken by the  company iicca-ions a general strike il  will1, prove a serious thing for the  general public, who aflerall have vital  interests to be considered.

NOTICE  ', Tiik opposition to the appointment  /if a-man from another province to tiie  vacant judgeship is not logical nor sen-  ftibl(-,'but a veiy dangerous policy.  The  "administration nf'justice is a serious  matter that, is, or .should he, held above  hiCiil feelings " or partisanship.', The  idea is wrong that  a   member   of   the  ' ll.

C. bar will not deny it, just  as clever advocates and men learned in  tlie law in other piovinccs as in this,  and, as a balm '<> their feelings, we  will add, as clever here as elsewhere.  But the position of a judge is such an  eminently impartial one that it is  1-etter ho should be chosen fioin outside the many conflict ing political local'  .and other cliques antl parties that have  been'.swaving this, province, such as:  Conser vnti i c:  The Ironies of Politics. ,  Discussing the U.'
