THE PUBLIC AND THE STRIKE President ..Sherman's order for the miners to quit work came as a great surprise to the general public. It was generally supposed that all was peace and that there was nothing more to do but for the operators and union officials to sign up to preserve the peace for another two years. As be- tween the two conflicting forces the public is not exactly in a position to judge. The operators claim that the district officers should sign up the agreement that has been approved by their committee and by the local un- ions and that President Sherman took on himself a serious responsibility in refusing to sign an agreement approv- ed by the majority of the miners. They place the blame for the trouble solely on him for the breach of agree- ment. The union officials in their state- ment infer that the proposition re- ferred to the men was the associa- tion's final offer and that considerable influence was exerted to secure the small majority in favor of its accept- ance. They say that the proposition so unfair, so inconsistent and ao much dictated by the C.' P. R. that the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., and others withdrew from the associa- tion. They hold that an agreement suitable to the Crow's Nest" Co. is equally suitable to the two other companies and that no company should have an advantage over its competitors. The differences between the two agreements are not really known to the general public. They may be matters of principle or merely of de- tail. The text of the agreement has not been published. Why the opera- the president, the one to take the first practical step and will keep the society along practical lines. Judging from the numerous kicks put in by both Republicans and Dem- ocrats at the new tariff it must be a Pavncful tariff. if coal strikes must be, the users of domestic coal would rather have them naw than six months earlier. The news of the strike came on very suddenly and unexpectedly. It is to be hoped it will speedily and suddenly leave. The public in this neck of the woods will have their attention drawn from the training of John Bull and Der Kaiser for a future bout to watch Frank Sherman and Lewis Stockett square off to each other. In both cases it will cause no regret if the principals agree to divide the purse before they come to ringside. The Horticultural Society in elect- ing Father Van Tighem honorary president of the society paid him a fitting tribute. His garden has done more than anything else to prove what can be done in the culture ol trees, fruit and flowers. His orchard is one of the sights of Alberta.

Why President Sherman should take on himself the responsibility of over-rul- ing an agreement approved by the various local unions interested is equally hard to understand. The public are not possessed of facts suf- ficient to prove the supposition that it is a fight between the C. P. E. and J. J SPRING Sister's planning dresses, dimities and. lavm.

They know that while the strike will be hard on the miners and a great loss to the operators, the loss and inconvenience to the, public -will be even greater. Business WiH be unsettled; transport- ation hampered; coal-will be dearer; and if the strike be prolonged a cer- tain amount of actual suffering will be the lot of the poorer classes in places dependent upon these mines for their fuel. When the essential rights of either party are at stoke in a strike, the public as a rule are willing to bear the lois and inconvenience in order that the right may prevail They will not, however, view with any favor or any" quibbling over minor matters when their greater interests are Buffering.

Spring will soon be here. OPERATORS AND PRES. LEWIS AGREE STARTED AT LAST The Horticultural Society has been organized. A good number of citizens have already joined. Now it is up to a lot more to fall in line and help along the good cause. If enthusiasti- cally and practically managed there ia no limit to the benefit the city will derive from it. Beautiful lawns and gardens give a place to a healthy and prosperous >Iook and make people proud of their citv and "Defeated" to live in it. The influence both on the owner of a garden on the passer- by is ol one -is a etinuiug to others. .Methods: to secure success should be known by as many as powible. Give this know- ledge and help in part of the work of the society... The person to derive the greatest benefit from the society is the member and especially the one who takes the greatest interest in it, The society to all citizens. It should have a hundred members in a time and even half that number of active apostles of the "Lethbridge beautifcir' gospel will have a re- markable influence on the of the city. If you are -interested, fall in line; if you ate OOLOODinoco fall in liae; if you want to be in- terested, the inspiration can be se- cured in the society. Miners Will Be Operated Further Conferences as to New York, March The follow- ing statement was given out today in behalf of the Anthracite coal opera- tors "At the request of Mr. Thomas L. Lewis, who headed the committee of Anthracite mine workers at the recent conference with the operators in Philadelphia, the operators have continue the agree- ment in force on and after Aprif 1st, pending further conferences." The communication from Mr. Lew- is came in the form of a letter to each member of the operators com- mittee of seven. The me.sorrs of the committee all replied that- the pro- posed arrangement was acceptable to .them.

The following" is a copy of a letter received from Mr. E. W. Wallace who was a fanner at Claresholm and who accompanied one of our excur- sion parties and purchased fifty acres of land from us last fall. He spent the winter visiting the fruit districts in the States and is now settled on his land at Burton Citsv Afrow Palisade, Colorado, March 11, 1909. Dear Mr. Tfiis is a fruit country, valley which is one solid orchard. These-or- chards sell at per acre. The elevation is feet above sea level. They have to irrigate and water coeis per acre per year.: There is no reason why Arrow Lake lands should not bring as much in time as these lands. I am satisfied that we can produce as much and as gocid fruit there, and without irrigation.- Burton Valley will be another Palisade if the people'who are interested in land their part." SIGNED: truly, B. W. WALLACE. Are you interested in fruit growing? Are you interested in fishing? Are you interested in shooting? Are you interested in making Are you interested in boating? .money?
