In the select-K^v^^on, of Med-grain, for your own salces he had not Uan IntoxlcMffd would have been aliv.e today. A Stettler paper dispiaj^a a very Clflsh disposition in expressing de -light at the news that the C. P. H. will aot extend its line east froiu th',Te this year. Of course it looks good to Stettler because such a decision means that no town would arise cast of it to rob its merchants of trade. But what of the sottlers who have gone into that country, seventy and a hundred miles from Stettler, under the impression that they were going to have a railroad immediately? . It is worth noting that the late Speaker of the Ontario legislature, Hon. J. W. St. John, and his successor, Thos. Crawford, M.P.P., ranit high as temperance advocates. Mr. Crawford is a big man and so was iir. St. John, each of them weigh  ing over two hundred pounds. Mm ,' 'pad, for tlie aalte of the reputation of ^ I r.|tlM: country get pure seed.

Hi aad Ma eoni|ianio�s frwiMUy 4FN���,)erta, and all that the Alberta administration has done is not to take them away, for which we are very thankful. Calgary is larger than Edmonton and Strathcona put together, yet EXl-Btontpa has received in ordinary assistance more than Calgary even with the Normal school, and tha^ is not counting the capital, which is greater than all else combined, and the university which is the next important institution in the gift of the province. "The Lethbridge Herald refers to favors that the south has received but overlooks what is probably the miost important, which was the appointment of the proprietor of the Lethbridge Hei^ aid to an important position in the premier's department in EM-monton, which doubtless explains the remarkable position taken by his paper." The former part of this remarkable article in no wise refutes the arguments put forth in justification of the governmont's course, but is the same threadbare' plea that Calgary continually puts forth, vii.: "We want a lot because we are big." In the latter part, our. contemporary descends from folly to meanness in practically saying that our support of the government in this matter, has been bought by the appointment of the former editor of this paper .to an office in the premier's department. The insinuation is false upon the face of it. In the first place provincial not the prop;-iotor of the Herald, but only one of a company. Secondly, the appointment came to him totally unsought for and had absolutely no strinifs to it. Thirdly, the present editorial policy is in no way infiuen-oed by that appointment. Had been seeking a government position, the Albertan allegation might hsv� had some foundation. But now that the appointment has without any influence being used, been made, and as no more are desired or likely to be received by the Herald, the implied charge is, basolcas and foolish. W� might as well charge the. Alber: tan's editor with being sore because lie wM not.appointed.

The city will be all Alberta. A comprehensive procession will be the inorntng fcaturv; games and sports will occupy the attention in the afternoon, while a brilliant flroworks display a;id a banquet will probably terminate the day's proceedings. This is a matter in which every oitissn should take an active Inter -est. Such events as these stir up one's civic priile. Get ready for it. Fix up your own part of the city, paint your house if it needs it, repair your fence, clean up your yard. Get out your dags and other jdecora-tions. Celebrate in royal style and start in early to get ready. The terrible frequency of railway accidents during the past months calls for careful investigation. Almost invariably the cause is laid to a broken rail. This may be the real cause or it nay not. If it is, there is aomsithing wrong with the manufacture of these rails. Are they teat-ed thoroughly tiefore lives and property are risked upon their strength and endurance? If they are, whythis frequency of broken rails? If they are not, why not? Is not the honesty of a steel rail of as much consequence as the honesty of a tin of beef, or a barrel of apples? Yet these are subject to inspection. If the e-xcuse of broken rails is not the real cause of the accideikts, what is? The most searching investigation should be given these accidents, Those familiar with railroad life know that it is no uncommon thing for an engineer to sleep on duty and al^ow the fireman to fulfil as best he can the duties of both. Why is this? Is it because they are deliberately shirking or is it because their hours of labor are beyond human endur  ane�7 It is no uncommon thing lor section foreman to apply for new ties and new steel and be refused. Rotten ties cannot be bolstered up to stand t)te weight of present day trafBc. Old steel cannot be repaired. An abundance of spikes even in solid ties cannot appreciably strengthen the rails. What then shall be done? Is ithe public willing to chance their lives and their property, "freight shipped at owner's risk," under such circumstances? Are thay satisfied with a trac^ insiteetion such as a road  master can give by riding on thebiack of a train once in a white? This long continued chapter of accidents calls for inspection by others than those whose policy it is to ensure that degree of safety that will not interfere with the dividends and the increase in the value of the stock The situation seems to �sll for Government inspection. Why should not the Government have track and rmU-ing litock Inspectors on the railroads A defective engine caused the loss of a life at Maclood a few weeks ago. A broken rail is the reason given for the recent disaster �t Chapleau. And so the list might be extended, of bad culverts causing wash-outs, of over-worked employees asleep on duty, of section men not being supplied with rails, plates, ties and ballast. This is a matter of vital interest to tlw public, and demands that action be. taken by those to whom the public welfare has' been entrustsd. It ^ Stand By Oliver.

There is a movement on foot to have a Justice of tho Peace appoint- strikes of this kind is no blow The MuutreAl Herald in discussing the Labour Conciliation Act speuks us follows:- , If Mr. Lcmieux's pbsition upon tho tiuestlon of prosecutions under tho new Conciliation Act which generally boars liis name is correct, there is n gap lu that leg:islation which will have to be lillod in before it can be jvlied on to gchiuvo the prime object for which it was passed. The Lem-Il'UX legislation, as wc have pointed out ever since it was introduced, has its entire raison d'etre in the public interests wliich ore involved in ccr -tarn industries and which suffer by their suspension. It was not passed for the protection of cither or both of tho parties to the lubor-nnd-cap -ital relation. Ultimately, it leaves both of those parties, unprotoctdand unrestricted, to tho issues of imius -tries. But it does assert a right of the peo{jlc as a whole, of the innocent public unaflected by questions at issue but gravely affected by the I struggle itself, to impose certain con ditions that must be observed before the resort to hostilities-conditions which are likely in most cases to obviate the hostilities themselves. right of the public was given by Mr. Leinieux and was accepted by the entire Parliament, which adopt -lOd, the legislation practically with-'out formal opposition, as the basis 'of its logic. But now we find that i the Act is inelTective except upon invocation by one or other of the parties to a labor dispute. The acts which arc declared by tho legislation to te cr.nias because they contravene the interest of the public-the act of eflnoting a strike or a lockout in . a public utility before a Conciliation Board has passed upon the issue-are now we find, only crimes if the I employer or the employee likes to I call them so. Tlierc is no machinery whereby the Federal authorities, in the name of the people at largewhom this legislation is designed to pro -tcct, may treat them as crimes, and stop them us crimes, and punisbthem as crimes, ^unless a private parson c>in. be .found to come forward and take the onus of prosecution. Now we ha\e no sympothy with those Americanizers of our polity who would like to turn the Govern -~ ment of Canada into a hired attor^ ney for the prosecution of personal grievances. But it does not seem necessary that the Government should undertake the enforcement of laws In vhich the public intercstmny be so groat,' and the private interest so little, as is the case with the Conciliation Act. Surely the of that .\ct is not fulfillod if (as may very easily happen) both sides A the dispute decide that they do not want to be investigated and wouiti rather go right ahead and fight, leaving tho Begi.strar of the Act, and the Minister of Labour, to sit powerless in their offices while the public is robbed of its transpop tation facilities, its light, its fuel or its sources of power. If, as is stat ed in regard to the Taber Coal Company of Allxirta, the officials of the Act have no power to apply it until a private prosecutor appears, there is urgent need for an addition to the legislation in that sense. Otherwise tho law appears to be working admirably. The enormous weight of that forc^ of public opln -ion which is brought into efTcet by the Act is strikingly shown by the result i.n the Springhill coUieries, where the employees have abandoned their proposition rather than face public criticism.
