Mr. Producer or Mr. Consumer? Rut the answer want�d to the first o,ue=t'.on would have been forthcomlns, also for the second, and that would been embarrassing. The question asked by the Herald is an indictment. In- effect, it charges the dominion tlovernment with failing to do anything which ia of benefit, and announces that the most thut. can be claimed for it Is that it he- done nothing which haa harmed the producer Tho question which, if answered tru;!::uily. might serve to throw soma liyht or, the situation is: Has the I'uion tJ.r.-err.ment .lone ar.vthing good which a Liberal cvemment �ou)d not have done, tiiiy as promptly, and has it tint Jaf' undone much that a Liberal p.vcrm. ,-n' would have done for the presen* and future welfare of Canada?

As it was the most unfounded rumors .pained circulation, and were only kept from spreading farther wh.ii the lier-have aid was called fur confirmation We think-at any rate we hopf-- that the people of lethbridge and district appreciate the Herald'* eftor's to keep the public in close touch with the news day by day.

The cost of maintaining the ve-y complete telt'graph'.e news service at such times as these i� very heavy, heavier in fact than most people imagine, and wp do nnt feel in any way that we are asking tor charity when the lines suggested by the member for High Kiver. that one large institution would not cover the needs^t the province.
