OUR POINT OF VIEW Have you got your sweet pea seec A walk around the city is a revela sired, but .both new and old address jtion even to residents of the marvel must be given.

In some industrial disput- es this is to a certain extent true. But in most cases, the public is a party in the affair, and moreover, is the party most concerned. When the trouble is over the production or transportation of actual necessities, the public is much concerned and is directly a party in the dispute. In the present coal strike, the pub- lic are much concerned. While at this season of the year and with sev- eral mines not affected by the strike, there will not likely be much acf.ui1 physical suffering, there are other ways in which the public will suf- fer. Take the case in this city and district alone, without considering the interests in the country east and which depends upon the Gait mines for fuel. There are probably seven hundred miners concerned. They lose wages every day they are out and receive in return the living allowance provided by the xinion. From the company's standpoint there is an investment of several hundred thousand dollars giving no return and the profits of several hundred tons of coal lost daily. These are the losses of the two parties directly concerned. On the other hand, there axe from ten to twenty thousand people and hundreds of- thousands probably mil- lions of dollars invested but tied up because of the strike. The building operations of the city will as far as Many citizens are already -working on the "Lethbridge beautiful" idea. There are many more who have made no start yet. Paint helps to make a place better looking. A -lot of people could help along the "Lethbridge beautiful" movement by having a coat of paint applied to their residences and fenc- Toni Longboat is a runner. Canadians still believe him to be the greatest known. But Tom has a knack of falling down just when the greatest faith is pinned on him and when he is most needed. r Side Ufihts brick buildings are concerned be suspended as brick cannot be pro- duced .without fuel. This means prac- tically the tying up of the building trades except in the case of frame structures. All over this country are scores of steam ploughing outfits which use large quantities of coal. The operation of these this spring means the development of tens of thousands of acres of land, which in the fall or nert fall at latest would produce hundreds of thousands of bu- shels of grain. That development will be prevented as long as present con- ditions obtain. >The cessation of building and of land development means a severe blow to the business interests of the city. Lethbridge mer- chants do not depend on miners' wages as much as they used to, but they do depend very largely upon his production of the coal necessary to other industries. For these reasons, it seems only right that the public should be con- sidered as a very much interested party in the present unfortunate dis- pute. As to the merits of the cases of the contending parties, the public has only an indirect interest. Their main concern is to see the mining operations resumed as speedily as possible that then: interests may not suffer. It seems to be their right then to use every influence to bring about a settlement of the strike. DIPLOMATIC COiBlENT 'Many stories have been told of Ci- priano Castro. Venezuela, ami exiled president oi of las monumental said Dr. T. H. McDonoujrh, ol San Francisco, to the Washington Herald. "During the Russo-Japan- ese war the fall of Port Arthur was being- explained to him. he exclaimed, 'with. 500 Venezuelans I could have taken It in four 'With. a thousand in one day, said the diplomatic sentative of a European power." "Castro was so pleased that it is said the diplomat succeeded the next in procuring the payment of a claim that his government had been vainly pressing for years." ONTARIO AND TELEPHONES Ontario is preparing to fall in line with Alberta and the other prairie provinces with regard to the tele- phone question. As in other provinc- es, in Ontario, the Bell Telephone Co., practically has the monopoly of the telephone business. During the last six or seven years, however, there has been a rapid development of in- dependent rural telephone systems. Nearly every county in the province has one or more of these lines. Some times these join their exchanges so as to increase the distance of com- munication but as yet one cannot talk very far over the independent lines. ITie Bell holds the mon- opoly. The independent companies had to put up a. big fight to secure the privilege of having their phones placed in railway stations, but the Bell will not, exchange messages yet. The telephone is becoming more and more an absolutee necessity'for the farmer and the opposition to a monopoly of this public utility is fast growing. For obvious reasons the Bell Co. is opposed to the extensions of their rural system. feeler for public senti- ment in the matter, I. B, Lucas, M.

As the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding- march being played by Miss J. Kennedy, the bride entered the church leaning on the arm of her father. The bride was attended by her Wil- lena Campbell, and the groom by Mr. John M, Hoss, cousin of the bride. Just before the ceremony was performed Mr. H. E. Fair sang very sweetly "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden." The brjde looked handsome in a cream silk embroidered crepe de Empire gown with trimmings of sat- in and lace over taffeta, with bridal veil; she carried a shower bouquet of cream roses and ferns. The bridesmaid was becomingly at- tired in a pink dimity Empire flfown with satin trimmings and hat to match.; she carried a bouquet of pink carnations. The ushers were Messrs. R. B. Ross and Burns Campbell. After the ceremony which was per- formed by Rev. James Barber, pas- tor of the church, the company ad- journed to the residence of the bride's; parents, where congratulations were received by the happy couple. The large company subsequently sat down to a sumptuous wedding1 dejeu- ner. The tables were handsomelv decorated with pink and white car- nations. Tie groom's gift to the bride was a pearl sunburst, and to the brides- maid a beautiful pearl ring and tn groomsman anU .ushers and organist each a pearl pin. The happy couplo left on the midnight express for Tor- onto, Niagara Falls, and Kingston. The bride's going away gown was a tailored suit of taupe grey striped Broadcloth with hat to.match. The session of Knox Church presented Mr. and Mrs. Ripley with a hand- somely bound Bible, as they were the first couple married in the church.... The brkie received many beautiful and costly gifts, showing the high es- teem in which she is held. Mr. and Mrs. Ripley will remain east for six weeks and on their re- turn will spend a few days here be- fore leaving for their home in the Courier. Mr. Thomas Ross of Warner, who has been, to Salt Lake City, has re- turned. He brought his newly wedd- ed wife back with him. KIDNEY DISEASE COMES ON QUIETLY.

He spent -the winter visiting the fruit districts in tbe States and is now settled on his land at Burton City, Arrow Lakes. Palisade, Colorado, March 11, 1909. Dear Mr. Freeman, This is a frnit country, a which one solid orchard. These or- chards sell'at p6r acre. The: elevation is feet above sea. level. They have to irrigate and water coats 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 good fruit there, and without irrigation. Burton Valley will be another Palisade if the people who are interested hi land there do their part." SIGNED: YOUM trnly, K. W. WALLACE. Are you interested in fruit growing?
