It has f been accepted that with the rate of Sundial, April note that 'Gov. Folk, of Missouri, has predicted a, clash between the States and Cnn- adu in the not distant future by rea- son of the great influx of American settlers here, each carrying with him his natural allegiance to the U. S., and that this country must "fall un- der the will of the States Govern- ment. Our people will remember the gov- ernor as springing iuto prominence on his election to the offie of circuit attorney of St. Louis, when xinlike his predecessors, he made good his promise to prosecute corruptionists, Jt then Butler the jjireat political machine boss cf that city said of him, ''In an unguardd mo- ment I let him slip in, and look what he has done, spent four years trying to put me in the and sweeping victory for Governor of tBF State and determined efforts to sup- press fraxid and graft in politics and the vicious methods of monopolistic forces in securing unmerited coaces- M.f sioiis through the legislature.

There is bound to be an ever-increasing mar- ket in the Orient for Alberta wheat. Moreover, the statements of a railway official who recently investigated the conditions in Mexico support the be- lief that it will be better for the grain men of Alberta to ship grain for Eu- rope via the Tehuantepec railroad than by the present transcontinental route. In these days when a cargo of grain can be sold times over while it is crossing the ocean, even as it has probably been sold several times be- fore it was shipped at all, the mat- ter of rapid delivery is not so import- ant as it was in the days when the Can You Win It Mr. T. 0.

While we cannot speak for all Canada, if Sunny Southern Alberta is a fair or reasonable comparison with other parts of the Dominion the Governor's prediction is but a troubled dream, for in leaving a country where free- dom of speech and liberty of action THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE Gar Of Brand On Track Today Ihe Bsnttey Co, ltd, Mtlil BEAD OFFICE.

TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES The new Travellers" Cheques recently issued by this Bank are a most convenient in which to carry money when travelling. They are issued in denommalMM.ef and and the exact amount payable: in Belgium, Denmark, FnsKn, Germany, Great Britaiu, Holland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Sweden and, Switzerland is .stated oa the Face, of each cheque, -while- in other the prevailing price. Steamship companies in abundance are ready to handle the grain from the coast cities. The only thing lacking is the elevator capacity at the shipping point. Perhaps it may not be in the best interests of the G. P. E. to put elevators at the Pacific Coast to attract traffic from their transcontinental route. The statement cf a leading Alberta eleva- tor man who evidently speaks with authority that they will provide the necessary elevator capacity comes as a guarantee to the Alberta farmer that he will have a market for his grain which can be reached at a min- imum freight charge and with less danger, of loss from car shortage and with more prospect of competition. u-overmueni in no way less lemenr j they are payable at current rates. USE LEMIEUX ACT A coal strike in the whiter months -is always serious because it endangers not only the comfort, but' the lives of citizens. A strike in the warmer months in the year does not affect the individual public as keenly but it is serious. It strikes at industries on which we depend for our development. At the present time with 'coal so scarce, there is always the likelihood that our own industries will have to close down-, that the city will fail to get to produce power to provide us with light and water, and. the fann- ers will be compelled to keep then- steam ploughs idle and prevent as a consequence the realization of our hopes of an unprecedented large crop. The Lemieux Act- should be resort- ed to at once in an endeavor set- the present troubles Immediate settlement is absolutely necessary ii our industries are to continue opera- ting and our farmers are to realize their ambition's of seeding a big crop. The Minister ot Labor should make effort to put an end to the trouble. to its subjects than what was there afforded us, in fact, I am constrained to believe that the balance of free: dom and power is with the settler here, unless it be the freedom to work political graft and the power to bamboozle and shy around the law, and whatever of patriotic allegiance to the States is treasured in the- heart of the emigrant from there, is swal- lowed up in his love for the righteous- govemment of, by and for the peo- ple of this country.

Within a very few months, the Bank of Montreal has opened a branch at Cardston, the Bank of Com- merce at Warner and Monarch, and now the Union Bank is establishing a branch at Stirling. Two new banks have only recently opened in Leih- bridge. These banks certainly know a good country when they see it. The members of the police force work from 11 to 12 hours a day. .Why not apply the eight hour law to them? None of the other city officials work longer than eight hours. The Calgary News asks the very pertinent question, "Did any of the Liberal Conservative newspapers ask Geo. E. 'Foster to resign when he was reported against by the Insur- ance No, indeed, they didn't, but they are all telling Mr. Pugsley to quit since a commission has reported against him. Calgary is in danger of running out of coal. .This is serious, especially since the warmest thing Calgary ever possessed, the Eye-Opener, is about to be transferred to Toronto. Speaking of the treatment of horses in England, Judge Mahaffy, writing to his home papor in Bracebridge, Ont., says "I never saw a horse over- loaded or overdrriven there, in fact, I can't recall one ever being struck with a whip." It is a pity we can't say the same of Lfithbndge, It is pitiful to observe the way some horses are treated sometimes by inhuman driven on our streets.

While here we might, perhaps, more con- sistently say, equitable rights and a moderate rate of taxation for all, and when coupled with a climate in- vigorating to manhood, and supprs- sion of vice by rigid enforcement human laws, together with the happy and prosperous homes that_ by thousands are given freely, must of itself create a "cherishing tenderness for a country which has. lent such strength to honest effort. When we swear allegiance to the King we do not feel that we are becoming slaves of a monarch, for "Kings shall reign in and while we know our dear old Uncle is sorely grieved to see us leaving yet if lie ever sends the boys over to give us a sound spanking and bring us under subjction. again, he will find a Jot of very refractory kids."

This is absolutely false.. You need not levy in excess of .the present rate, one and one-fourth cents, while five cents is the limit for any small local improvement district. Farmers here are about all done seeding on stublbe ground and are now turning the sod. We shall have a few test reports to make next fall, as different ones have seeded from twenty to seventy pounds to the acre.
