The Lessons of the Wheat Confiscations. Tus wheat growers 3re the first to taste in a large way of the principles of National ownership; but every othee producer of the country. may see thr dangers lurking in an extension of the policy. What is the painful exper ieuce of wheat farmers this year will a.suredly be that of stockmen next year, and of dairymen the year after, and so on till the cycle of national control of the means of life be com. plete. The right of private ownership in not the gift of a class Government, but a divine institution founded upon the laws of God. For the first time is tile development of human affairs -r civil Government has stopped in to seize tie farmers' crops foi the benefit of those who do not produce. "Old Age Pensions had about them the principles of the sanction of charity. Th'le helpless had to be-kept from want by those who could render help.

Obituary. -4-+- THE LATE WILLIAM PIKE. (An appreciation by an Old Friend.) DURING the last week, the mortal remains of Mr William Pike, J.P., who, from childhood, was a man well-known and highly respected in the Queanbeyan district, were in terred in the Roman Catholic Ceme tery.

When it became known that be had been stricken with ser ious illness, some months ago, his numerous friends, and the public generally, received a great shock. Under Dr. Blackall's ministrations, however, immediate calamity was averted, insomuch as, after a period of some retirement, Mr Pike was able to; leave his chamber and cau- tiously walk about, receiving on his appearance, again in town, the...

Police Ieleh et s and Caps. - A CHANGE PROBABLE. Tiul Chief Secretary (Mr. CaOnn) has under consideration a sobeme for pro viding new caps for the police, which will financially benefit- the department and add to the comfort of the men on duty. Under the present system the N.S Wales police are given two helmets a year and one cap, while it is com pulsory for the .men to ivear the hel mete during certain hours.' Should the proposed scheme" be decided upon, the men -will be allowed to wear the caps at whatever time they choose. Information is being gathered, at Mr Cann's request, regarding the helmets and caps used in other States, and from what can be gathered it'seems highly probable that the Queensland headgear will be adopted. In that State the ýpolice aree given one helmet and one cup, which are supposed to last for two years with ordinary use. The cap is said to be much better than the one in use in N.S. Wales. The neck is protected from the sun, and the. formation of the peak i...
