150 or imprisonment for the failure
to repair a sidewalk " after being
ordered to do so by the proper
authorities. The spirit of the law
is all right. This way of ordering
a thing done and then letting it go,
shouldn't work at all. If CorvalliB
authorities show an inclination to
enforce the law it will be a splen

Nothing has done more to stim
ulate emigration from Great Brit
ain to the farm lands ot the Cana
dian Northwest than the reports
of the American emigration into
the same reion. The Canadian
emigration agents in England have
used the fact with great ellect, say-

the English countries that the Yan

advertisement enough and the
Btream from Liverpool this year is
estimated at no less than 10,000

being ignored by the British immi
grant, and the expectations so sed
ulously fanned during the Boer war
are being couaDletely disappointed.
No one perceives as yet that
rush of British settlers to South
Africa which was to inundate the
Boer population and influence.
