Editorial notes.


When the promoters of the Windsor, Essex and Lake Shore Railway asked the Railway Committee of the Legislature to ratify an agreement with municipalities to run on Sunday, the committee responded by saying Nay! Nay! The promoters should have borrowed a leaf out of the Metropolitan manager's book, and made an everlasting franchise agreement, then promise to have the agreement confirmed—go into possession and forget the promise, thereby preventing the citizens from filing objections and securing to the Company a perpetual franchise without a cent's remuneration at the expense of generations yet unborn.
