I NOT ONLY FOR CUPS AND RIBBONS CPEAKlN(t at the Mixed Farming Convention, Mr. McNicol ^ made use of a good opportunity in enlarging on Ihc educative value of a slock show. In view of the fact that Iherc has been some dissatisfnclion expressed against piliing Ihc slock of Soulhern Alberta against those raised in other parls of the Dominion, there was need for some such expression of opinion. In the inleresis of agricultural industry, as coiUined to the breeding and raising of live stock, the idea that shows are to be .^garded as fields for cup-hunting alone should be disabused. This may be their see^)n�lary uses and should so viewed. What is prinuirily intended is lhal the best specimens, no matter from what part of the country, should be obtained to serve as patterns for otheivs to follow for the purpose of evolving >vbat is nearest to perfoclion.. This es the purpose not only of a broadening of views but of creating Miat keenness and si which onlv a wide com-petition can produce. And the farmei^ of Southern Alberta have this much encouragement, that Mr. McNicol stales, with an experience whicli no one will discredit, that.the farhuM's in this district can hold their own with any in Canada in the show ring. To confine Live Stock Shows entirely to local products will, by narrowing competition, he missing the mark for which these institutions have been framed.

This j and other reasons oui?h! to be enough for those who arc in love with their labors to aim at producing **standard goods.*' It should he the great incentive coming far above the mere seeking after cups and ribbons. t. E .1 "I i li � F THE LESSONS TAUGHT at the Mixed Farming Convention are seriously taken to heart, then, not only Lethbridge and the immediate district, but the whole portion of Southern Al-l�erla, will have reason ^o be thankful for the enterprise which started what will be the first of a series of annual events. The men who delivered addresses were masters of the subjects they treated, and this, in addition to the judgment and knowledge backed by experience displayed, cannot but carr>' conviction to those who heard and read their criticisms, obserx^a-lions, and practical fidvice. In carrying these to over six thousands of its readers the Herald wall be delivering an important message. But this alone \vill not be enough; it requires an earnest endeavor on the part of each one, whether he be directly or indirectly interested in agriculture, to digest the facts seriously and make what good he possibly can of them. In lliis in a very great measure rests the success of the Convention, and thereby will its powers productive for the general good be established. So far as the city of Lethbridge is concerned there remains mapped out for it a policy which it cannot but feel bound to follow sooner or later, and the sooner the better. This is a concentration of effort towards creating a cold storage plant and an abattoir. As Mr. McMullcn stated, the establishment of an abattoir is the solution of the whole problem of a market for live stock. It is the way in which markets and facilities have developed in other cities, and Lethbridge must inevitably follow ,�uit if the farmers in the district are to have a ready cash mar-He further guaranteed that when the farmers would get the OUR POINT OF VIEW The Mixed^ Farming Convention was a success, suits will follow. Good re- The reduction of freight rates 20 per cent, will make some difference, but another 10 per cent, should have been added. The one disappointing feature about the Dog Show was the failure of city people to ailend. The Navy Bill forced through the House of Commons by means of the gag law suggests to Dr. Clark a hearse passing through the cemelery gates. If the city council is anxious to have the street cars patron-ized in warm weather for pleasure purposes, itiwill be necessary lo make Henderson Park the magnet. The Bait Autocrat . .

A Crime Against Liberty Hon. Mr. Oliver discuBSlng the closure in parliament April 14: "I ask you, are we likely to Inspire appreciation of and reverence for the Ideals of British liberty. British justice and British fair play by preventing the representatives of our people from giving free expression to their vlows against liberty, and an offence against Canada and against the Empire: and all the greater because It Is committed under the prete.x't of BrillBh precedent. The conditions here and in Britain are not parallel; hone of the reasons which require closure there, exist here. The attempt to shelter the establishment of boss rule in Canada, according to the American practice In Its lowest form, behind the need of expediting work in the parliament of the Empire- which transacts the business of forty-ftve millions of people directly, and indirectly the business of one-half the world-and doing so in the name of loyalty to thp Empire, is outrageous .beyond expression, and I ^^Vt Speaker/ that political brlgandry never went further in cowardice and treachery under any circumstances or in any country.

R. would come through vdih the necessar>' ser\ice. This jought to be encouraging. Dr. Rutherford laid stress on the importance of facilities for storing products during the glut of the market. Theae are matters which have no doubt already appealed to all practical men, and the opinion of experts has its iralue in confirming and laying stress on their importance. , Farmers at present require much education in the matter of jimndling and preparing their products so as to become easily imarkiBtable. But with the creation of facilities means will be furnished for bringing about the desirable end. For the further-jAOce of agricultural industry there rests a good deal of respon-ilsibility on this city. This none ynW dispute. Let us, therefore, �llot only be awake to the facts but endeavor to put our views Into praotioe. The gag law lias passed in the House ol' Commons. The Senate shouAi know how io treat legislation forced through by unfair means. The Convention was composed of I'epresentalive fanners, and all said Lethbridge is Ihe s|)ot in whieh to loealc an internal elevator. 5Jt7� In emphasizing the need of belter markoling facilities the Mixed Farming Convention went straight to the root of the matter. There must be a means of disposing of produce in order to encourage its production. 1 I THE LATE SIR R. W. SCOTT 'T'HE PASSING of Sir Richard Scott removes one of the old-fashioned tj^pe of public men, and a type all too rare in these days of doubtful party tactics. He was not a bitter parli-Isan in any sense of the word and regarded his public duties from fja very high standpoint. He was a kindly spirited man and in the �lost ten years of his hfe gave his services lo the country without it �nuch^regard for the parly possibilities. He always had a kindly :word for the newspaper man and was one of the few public men at Ottawa in the past thirty years who have been big enough lo forget the political complexion of a newspaper in his dealings :with the parliamentary coirespondents. It was a CAistom estab-fished at Ollawa during the reign of Sir John A. Macdonald that The story that R. B. Bennett \vould likely enter the Borden cabinet was merely a Calgary dream. Mr. Bortfen would have a fine time of it placating his followers with two Calgary men in the cabmet. Aside from this the result of llie Alberta elections is not hkely lo commend Richard B. lo the Hon. Robert Rog The people of Calgary have yet to learn lhal 11. B, Bennett cuts a very small llgure at Ollawa. ^ - ^ 1 i * - t'.t gpvernnienl news was lo be regarded the same as party patronage, and representatives of Liberal papers had to be satisfied with the crumbs that fell by the wayside. The Laurier ministry tearried out the same policy (the notable exception being Mr. Scott.) He was invariably kind to journalists of all types, and the Conservatives always received the best of consideration. e placed Mr, Scott beyond the narrow views of Ihe partizan, iind he did not consider it a violation of his obligations to the party chief io be fair lo every one. Sir Richard did his work "and he was a thorough master of details. His long associa-with the public life of the country made him invaluable, d;4he tninistcr new to pubUc offlce found in R. W. i^mii a He was the father of much useful legislation Beloved by Thousands (Winnipeg Tribune) The death of Rev. Dr. C. B. Pitblado removes from the Presbyterian church In Canada one of the outstanding figures of the past thirty-five years. Dr. Pitblado camo to W'Innlpeg In the days when the city was in the making. He had the splendid grit, the earnestness, and solidity of character found in mon lepreaentative of the be?t in the Scottish race. In adddltioh, he had an euthusiasm in that wan exceptional. He fired men to deeds ol emulation. Little wonder that he built up one of the strongest congregations in Canada, a monument to the church life in Western Canada. After a few years absence, he returned to Winnipeg and reared up a second powerful congregation. Hla influence was not confined to Winnipeg. Pie was unsparing In his help throughout the country. He was Indeed well-fitted for pioneer work In a now city. Thourands today will mourn the loss of a friend and wise counsellor. His active ministerial life ended a few years ago. owing to poor health, but his good deeds were such that he remained a living force in the church, and his occasional visits to this city were welcomed by men and women of all denominations, [ and in every walk of life.
