ALL THE CITY CHURCHES CROWDED FOR EASTER tCcntlnutd troiu Froat THE VACCINATION PROBLEM. THE Board of Health put itself on record the oilier day as being opposed lo compulsory vacchmlioii. Taking advantage of Ihc only loop- hole in the Provincial Health Act, it lias issued n certificate providing relief from vaccination in a case which has been before the school board for several months. Anil now it is for the health board lo explain I he position of the resl of us. 11 cannot stop now. ]l is not clothed with power for the purpose, of catering to individuals. The compulsory vaccin- ation law is not on the statutes as a piece of class legislation. There is only one tiling the Board of Health can do; Hint is lo issue a statement that hereafter in -Liilhbridgc there will be no more compulsory jbc reasonable and bide, our lime, provided it is not too far distant. For the immediate present there is a measure of content in that the judg- ment of the commission has recognized that re- lief from excessive freight rales was needed by the west. But the west naturally looks forward lo the day when eastern and western rates will be placed on an equal footing. DEVELOP OUR NATIONAL GAME. 'T'llE Dominion of Cnnadii ought lo present a 1 medal to Joe Lally. After his visit here there is no need to explain joe Lally is. He is bent on reviving Canada's national putting il on the level it enjoyed a decade or two ago.

Heretofore (he school authorities have required a certificate of vaccin- nlion before children are allowed lo enter the scho9ls. It is only lo be expected thai this rule will be removed now.

The Board of Health has some explaining to 'do, winch will be eagerly awaited. W WESTERN FREIGHT RATES. 1THOUT in any way regarding the recent reductions in freight rates hy the Railway Commission as a favor bestowed on ihe west, to flisconni Ihe. snine on the score that the commis- sion has justified the principle of discrimination against the west is a trifle ungenerous. The con- tention that fhis principle has been fixed is with- out doubt perfectly logical, but in the reductions )iiade, so far as this province is concerned, much of the sling of the discrimination under which Ihe west has labored has heen removed. In ihis aspect the grievance has been mitigated lo a great extent. Tile Railway .Commission had nol altogether ;ui easy task. In acting as an impartial judge it had lo decide equitably between the interests of the carriers, Ihe producers and the consumers II took into reckoning ihal, iu the case of eastern freight rates, there was something to base a de- cision, so far as Ihe railways were concerned, ii thai there was present competition by water, and from rales south of the border, Ihough Ihis con- sideration may nol be strictly jusliliabie. It may be purely technical, but again the Commission held that the Railway Act did not cortpcl it lo equalize rates between Ihe cast and west. In a way il refused to accept the onus of responsibility placed on il hy the, government on svhom it now naturally reverts. Looking, however, on the adjustments made the- it must be admitted, will be of con- siderable help. It a, at any rale, u triumph of the flrst soru'e of the west against railway burdens .Vhich were palpably unjust and indiscriminate. Meanwhile it is not suggested (hat Ihc west SlrCrtild for all lime be conltnl with reductions as far as they have gone, The matter of freight rates cannot be looked on as settled until there is Iht desired parity in eastern and wcslern rates jjut with the concessions made we can alford lo lacrosse slicks, and is using twentieth century methods to sell them. But we are not particular- ly concerned with Mr. Lally's business methods. We are, however, concerned in .the success of Mr. Lally's mission in Ihe west, which is to introduce Ihe game of lacrosse in our public schools. .We hold that the mission is one thai should be encouraged. Lacrosse is Canada's national game. II is essentially Canadian. The English- man has his association football, ihe American his baseball. We plead for the najionalizalion of the game of Hie amateur basis. To some Ibis plea may appear trivial. But il is nol. Canada heeds a game which will stand as an ex- pression of her national life. No one can say that the game of hockey lias not helped lo de- velop a better physical Canada. Lacrosse as Ihe summer game can do as much or more. The place to develop the game is Ihc place chosen by Mr. public schools. It will do the hoys good. It will develop them physical .y, and if they are taught to recognize the elhics of the game it will do them good morally. There drc a hundred arguments in favor of Ihe nwve- nenl for lacrosse in the schools lo one againsl. The movement has been started here. A little -ncouragemenl from the public will work wond- ers in helping Ihe boys make a success of the undertaking. Lethbridge can very, well afford to develop a lillle more of the spirit of true sporl It is woefully lacking and is noticeable in Ihe community. II is leaving its effects. Sports wil spruce up a community and help to effect n more lively sentiment even in the business district. So if there is anything you can do to help along Ihe schools lacrosse movement, do il. 1 will redound lo your credil, and you will event ually be proud of the parl you may have taken Don't forget, cither, that anything you do wil Jt the day.
