TELEPHONES: Editorial and News Rooms Business and Job Department . 35 .133 THE CANADIAN CONTEST The political contest in Canada, in which reciprocity is a dominant is- j sue, is over the election of members of the Dominion Parliament. 'The House of the Parliament," says the Nashville Banner, "which was recently dissolved was composed of 221 members, of whom 133 were Liberals and «ighty-eight Conservatives. The Liberal party, headed by Premier Laurier, stands mainly for reciprocity, which is opposed by the Conservatives, al though there are members of each patty who disagree with the majority sentiment of their party. There are other political issues than reciprocity entering into the campaign and there are some complex diversions from the leading issue that will determine many votes, but despite the vigorous ! opposition the present prospect indicates that Laurier will win a good Lib eral majority in the next Parliament." All the lumber plants west of the Mississippi river are shut down be cause of a strike that is now on, the common laborers in the mills demand ing more pay and shorter hours. It will make no great and permanent dif ference which side wins out, and if the laborers win it is doubtful if their conditions will be materially bettered for any great length of time. As soon as the capitalist is forced to raise his pay roll he will immediately set about to raise his price. In the meantime other laborers working in other Industries are striking and the prices of those commodities are raised. So It inevitably follows that as long as capital and labor are both organized, j prices will rise in exact accord with wages. The price of labor should be regulated by the price of commodities, but under the present system of organization, the price of commodities must necessarily be regulated by the price of labor. The more dollars a day the laborer receives, the less becomes ! the value of each dollar. But labor will keep on raising wages and capital will keep on raising prices until at last, some sweet day. the government will put an end, absolutely and forever, to both organizations, and the o'd. correct standards of free competition and free labor will he resumed. Then, and not until then, will such questions as the high cost of living, the ; labor question, etc., be settled justly and fairly. Hon. Roger Q. Mills, who died in the fullness of years at his home in Texas last week, was the last of a notable group of public men who were ' members of the House Ways and Means Committee that framed the tariff i bill under the first Cleveland administration, known as the Mills bill, i These men. besides Mills, were Carlisle, of Kentucky; Crisp, of Georgia: ^ Morrison and Springer of Illinois; Holman of Indiana, and Randall of Penn- [ sylvania. They were great men, all of them. The bill bore Mills' name | because he was chairman of the committee. Mr. Randall of Pennsylvania, was second in rank, and being inoculated with protection virus fought the bill in committee and on the floor of the House with zeal worthy a better cause. But no one ever doubted or questioned Mr. Randall's sincerity of I purpose, and though wrong upon the tariff, he was a patriot and a statesman and a great man with a great mind. *• Capital punishment itself, is a mooted question Public hangings, eith- ' er by law or by mobs, is a relic of ba.barianism. An attempt was made at ; the last legislature to abolish public hangings in this slate. To require that | gll legal executions take place in private; but the bill never came to a vote. ! We are glad to learn that it will be in reduced early in the session at the 1 coming legislature and passed: for certainly no sane legislature in this lighteppd £ge, would go on record as f : voting public executions of human j beings. BuH flgfrtipg is tame and cul curious Crowds of feflr hunters who fl lit for particles of rope at a public hanging. There i* absolutely nothing in the world more revolting than a public hanging.

The Birmingham Ledger well says: "Of all that cargo of Dutch Im migrants last spring none came South. They settled from New Jersey to Massachusetts, but none came to the cheap lands and better prospects In the South. The reason was that the South did not invite them.
