Now  this and good in.-in  is iu trouble again.    All  he  wants  to  do is to give the government report on  the Yukon, drawn up by government  officers and illustrated by government  maps, to a good   Grit  publishing  firm  to publish and make all it  can "out.of  il, which in view"- of the demand likely  to he: raised for   il, will   lie  soincLhing  very comfortable indeed.- It   niiist   he  terrible   to   this   exalted   exponent of  political purity to find   nasty cavilling  people   asking   why" the government  printing  bureau  ;.|  _Otl.-ivv.-i. which is  supposed to possess  tht* finest plant iu  Canada., could not. get out   this  report  the saiue as  any  other blue book, and  to heir even Liberals wauling to know  why. if  the job  had' to  be' let out, it  was  not_put  np  to :tender among all  the other good little i Liberal  printing  houses.

A town that carries ils  local patriotism so far as to exclude all  other considerations after the fashion  laid down hy the Mail, vvill invariably  also be fennel lo be a town divided  against itself as well. These purblind  and petty principles applied by the  community   to   the*,   constituency,   of  which   it   forms   a   part, vvill he   also  it *  applied by individuals and cliques in  that community in civic nnd municipal matters. A paper that vvill advocate these principles to snatch a little  popularity is a paper that,is doing the  very worst injury it possibly can to  its town in the eyes of lhe: outside  public and writing down its sympathizers as childish cranks and itself as  either a self seeking hypoi-rili* or else  a mm oivminded ass.  subject was pretty ihoroiighly thrashed out hi'twccn the prisoner's counsel,  Mr. White and (he sit Ling in.-igi.itiate.  .Mr. Haig. The code of 1S!)2 is very  clear on the point. It. eiiiiiui.'i-alcs a  long list of offences for which an  offender can he arrested without a  warrant, if caught in the act. not only  by a police! ofT'n er. but hy anybody.  Such are piracy, treason, murder, lini���������  gl-u-y and so on, all being serious  offences. And it furl her enlarges (he  powers of police officers over such  offenders in section 22, which runs as  follows :  "Hvcry peace officer, who, on reasonable and probable ground*-, believes  tliat an offence f'or which nn offender  may he arie*-Le(l without warrant, has  been committed, whether it has been  commit ted or not, and who, on reasonable and probable gruiinds, believes  tliat any person has cominilted that  offence, is justified in arresting such  person without warrant, whether such  person is guilty or nol."  But it is clearly lhe intention to  limit these exfraoriliiiiiry powers to  these p.ii'ticiilrtr serious crime's, and as  a matter of fact neither the first cha*. ge  of "common assault" nor the second  of "wounding and inflicting actual  bodily li'arin" come under the category.  Certain assaults do, such n-s assault on  Iiie Queen, assault to commit robbery,  and wounding witlrintent to do griev  ions bodily harm, that is to say an  assault with premeditated intention to  inflict a serious wound. But the common or bar room scrap does not come  under this head and unless a constable  is an actual witness of Lhe_occurrL'iice,  he is not justified by the code in arresting the. offenders without a warrant.  And the fact of the matt or is that in  any case in which a constable is not an  actual witness of .-in"offence he. should  iuake .issurauce doubly sure, and' vvill  consult his own interests in obtaining  a vvnrrent, unless it is absolutely impossible from the urgency of the case  oi the absence of a magistrate: to do so.  Even in cases covered hy section 22 a  warrant vvill frequently obviate all  trouble about, an arrest, which might  without it In: resisted, in ignorance of  the law. There is a great personal responsibility attached lei the oflice of -;>  roust able and while the whole  weight  and dollar.-, will open up forty miles of  I raiisportal ion and expedite the development nf n si'dion of country, from  which there if'every reason to believe  Lhe returns in the way of revenue to  I he province vvill eventually ')���������: very  large*. The results vvill he out of all  proportion to Ihe small expenditure  required and wil not be beneficial only  lo this town and dislrict hut the whole:  country. The request contained in  the petition is for a trunk road of general benefit lo everybody and (he government should have no hesitation in  acceding to it.  CONTEMPORARY OPINION  .V   POLITICAL  VVl'VKLINO.  Il is unfortunate that lion. Clifford  Sifton should put himself before the  country as a weakling who can be  outgeneraled by the nnibitiun of enterprising Toronto partisans. If the  beneficiaries of Mr. Sifton's folly had  gone lo Mem.

On his own confession the Senator  stands convieted of being animated in  his denunciation of Sir Wilfrid hy no  stern sense of duly, by no regard for  his country or for the great political  party under whose" cloak he; has been  masquerading, but merely by the non-  gr.itification of a purely peisoual ambition.

One would think the snub he  .received in. the futility, of bis  break up lhe Liberal convention at  New Westminster would show him  where he. stands.

And it is  in his own interest and tlie interest of  the law himself tliat. a constable, when  making an arrest, whicli as interfering  with lhe personal liberty of a Hrilish  subject, is a serious matter, should  arm himself, if possible, with every  safeguard, which the law provides for  him in the ordinary .course of his duty,  even though the law may permit him  to dispense with such safeguards in  urgent and exceptional cases.

Agents :  Victoria Powder Co,  fg  THE CANADA EASTERN AND  THE EASTERN CA NA 1)1 A NS  The Hon. Mr. Blair is a Liberal  of the- New Brunswick school  which believes in* making liny  while the sun is shining. Mr. Blair  has announced liis intention of  buying another railroad and the  Liberals from Ontario are up in  arms against him. The railway  which Mr. Blair propose-; to buy  runsfi'om J'redricton to Chatham,  a distance of 13(> mile.-', and is  known' a-- tlie Canada Eastern.  It has already been subsidized by  the' Dominion government to tho  extent of $-'70,000, and by the  province of New Brunswick tn the  extent of $J_i0,0W). At the l-Yed-  ericton eud of it is a bridge wliich  was undertaken by a local company with a capital of $20,000.  ���������which company a few years ago  borrowed .'"������������������'00,000 from the  D miinion Government. Not a  dollar" of the loan or tne interest  upon it lias ever been repaid.  When Mr. Blair takes over the  road���������unless" the Ontari~ men are  too strong for him, the lien on the  bridge is to be cancelled, and the  whole indebtedness of the road to  the Federal Government amounting to SS'0,000 with interest -will  be -wiped out. Mr. Blair says that  if he doesn't buy it for the country,  "the C.-P. K. vvill secure it for  themselves. lie proposes to pay a  million dollars for it, iu addition  to the concession of the lien and  over and above the amount of the  Federal subsidy. "  The road some   time   ago   was  _offered to the C. P-K-l'or. half a  million, but the company refused  to accept the offer. 11 is not the  Conservative but the Liberal press  of Ontario which is now n.Uuraliy  asking who is to pocket the  enormous difference between the  actual value of the road and llie  price which Mr. Blair proposes to  pay for it, and furthermore why  should this road be offered for sale  nt all if itJ-ould be run nta profit?  The bitter taste of the Drummond  County railroad "deal" still lingers  in the public palate, and the taxpayers" of the east who are  beginning to feel the effects of the  wholesale purchase of railroads,  are up in arms against the latest  wanton waste of public money  "ii tlie r~,rt of the Minister of  Railways. Mr. Blair lias been  described as a "dear old man" and  'Jus bminess methods of dealing  with public money woulil seem to  justify the title in more senses  than one.  THE   NEW   C.  P.  R.

Rednced Freight Rates on West Bound  Business.  Trallic "Manager Robert Kerr, of the  Canadian Pacific lailvvay, west of the  Great Lakes, has made "the following  statement for publication in reference  to the special commodity lui'IT recently issued :  "At the present lime," saiel Mr.  Kerr, "the nevv tarilf only covets the  articles under i he: government bill  passed in connect ie.n vvill*. the Crow's  Nest railway. The lirst article.- on  which there is a reduction of 10 per  cent., arc agricultural implements,  cordage and hinder twine, felt "or  tooling and placing on the sides of  houses and barns, liou-ehold furniture,  (nevv and old) window glass, iron,  including horse shoes, nails, spikes,  sheet iron, etc., paints and oils, paper  for building and moling, wire and  wooden w.-iii'. Thei e are staples used  chiefly by llie population  in lhe Canadian West, and the. reductions vvill cheapen the cost of buildings erected as well as lhe materials  used in la nn work.  The next reduction is 20 per cent,  on coal oil. This will he appreciated  as everybody uses coal oil in the  North West, and the cut will be a  great relief. Under group '���������> a big slash,  that of:i"5 1-8 per cent, has bcenmaclein  green and fresh fruits. The Canadian  Pacific Railway is anxious to remove  from out of tbe list of luxuries, fresh  fiuit. We therelore intend to do our  pari to make it a common article of  consumption.    Under  this new  tarilf  _a i.ra ti ge n i c n t I h u,__ t ri tde . ot. Untaii o  farmers vvill he promoted and fresh  truit nlaced within ihe reach of every  resident in the West.  Jn a few days the tariff on live stock  will he issued" and the reduction will  be 10 per cent on all west bound-Ontario shipments.  A comparison of the new lates with  llie old vvill he of inleresl. For instance in shipping . a car load of agricultural implements from Montreal to  the city the old rate per llio lhs was-Si"  cents, whereas it vvill novv he 71 cpnts.  A car load of nails and spikes from  .Montreal to Nelson. 11. C. vvill go tor  .*51 2<i per cwt.. compared with '1,15  under the> old taritf.  A car loae] of coal oil in wood, very  largely used in the North West, from  Montreal to Calgary for in-nance. will  go tor SI.21 per cwt. iigainst SI.til miller tlu* old rate. Apples in car lots  i can he shipped after Ihe lir-t of the  i year from Montreal to Kegina for S7  cents per cwt. compared wilh SI..") as  in the past. These arc: a fi'W illustrations of the difference in figures pickpel  at random from the nevv tarilf. There  is a proportionate.' decrease i'or shipments in le-s than car lots."
