FOREIGNERS ARE LOYAL There has been a persistent effort made by many people in Canada par- ticularly by the political opponents of the Government, to discredit the foreign population that has come to the country since the present Gov- ernment came into office.

Looking for a URGING C P R. TO BUILD ELEVATORS The practical results of the grain Calffary during the These statements received a certain amount of attention and. belief from those who have not seen these for- eigners or who have seen only the clasis that has drifted into centres such as Winnipeg. It is no more fair to judge the foreign population of the West by the element found in the slums of Winnipeg than to judge' the white settlers of the West on the same basis. As a complete answer to the charge that these people will not make loyal citizens comes the announcement that the "Euthenians of Northern Al- berta are petitioning the government for permission to organize a regiment of infantry for the nation's defence. Next to the Doukhobors probably the month of February last, are begin- ning to make themselves apparent. The C. P. R. see a solution of the grain blockade in. Southern Alberta, and an opportunity of breaking up the alleged elevator combine -by ship- ping the wheat west instead ipf. east. The commission men in anticipation 01 the western movement of the win- ter wheat arc opening up branch, of- fices in Calgary, where they can make a better bid for the trade of Alberta. Elevator.companies which .are on the ground now are building more elevat- ors this season and new companies are entering the field. The G-. W.

Yet these very people, are, of their own accord, taking steps to place themselves in a posi- tion to help defend the empire when the chances are that the first enemy to be met with will be their former fellow-countrymen, who ,are closely allied with Britain's greatest present j enemy. These people may not be as well educated as the majority of English- speaking settlers and their ideals in some "ways may be different but have never given any evidence of disloyalty' nor of any wish to escape the duties of citizenship. In fact, numerous instances similar to the in- cident'referred to although not so striking might be cited to show that these people are fast assuming- the full responsibilities of citizenship in their adopted country. WORK FOR BOARD OF TRADE A number of elevator companie are talking of coming to Alberta t- operate. Here is a chance for the Board of Trade to get busy and ge in touch with these firms and to persuade Uhein 'that Lethbridge is the "most desirable place for them to make their headquarters. The needs of this district for more elevators should be communicated to these ele vator cbmpaniesl livery shipping point m the province should have at least fwo elevators as a comparative guarantee of fair treatment as well as top prices for the grain growers Lethbridge is in a position to com- mand attention as a centre for head- quarters of companies busi- ness in' Southern Alberta and this fact should be impressed upon com- panies that are coming to these parts to operate. OUR POINT OF VIEW Lethbridge is becoming beautiful. The Agricultural Society grounds wil" make splendid recreation for the city if fitted up properly. The general question among neigh- bors is "Have you done your Leth bridge beautiful stunt yet." The workingmen of Ontario will have a rod in pickle for Sir James Pliny Whitney for awarding .the school book contract to the T. Eaton Co. The little excitement there was in Alberta and Saskatchewan will be nothing to the uproar that will be raised in Ontario. Lethbrdge is fast becoming a lead- ing financial centre. The banks are recognizing the advantage of getting in here early and getting a share of the rapidly expanding business of this district. The future of Lethbridge if no gamble but is beyond a doubt one of the finest in Canada. Financial institutions of all kinds have ap- parently got the vision of this city's future and are anxious to be a party to it. The man, firm or corporation that intends putting up a place of busi- ness, or to secure larger quarter; should get- after the property right away. The price of business pro- perty is going up fast and will never be as cheap it is today. Now is the time for the city to buy sites (or a city hall and for new fire that will necessarily be built within the next few The increase in the valve of the property will more than offset the money spent on in- teresV on tine investment.
