OFF THE TRACK. If Malcolm Mackenzie, M. U. A , of Macleod, Is correctly roportotl, lie ilhl tothbridgo a dcchkcl injustice in some comments ho matlo on our bill Hooking � charter as a city. The report says Mvdioino Hat motle tlie flrat applied Hon for n chnrt�r, nml Lothbridge followed suit, implying Wvat this town only raude Hie application, In omlor not to allow the Hat to get ahead of us. 3tr. Mackenzie's whole ur^umetft is wrecked by the fact that 1 AHnbrklgf Svas the first place to seek u charter. Medicine Hat took up Hie uwlter later, and its solicitor came liere to look owi' fcho charter ptvpannl by Let'hbrWge's town solicitor. Mr. Mackenzie nhould le sure of bis ground before he makes jnsiim-ttons in the Legislature. INVITE THEM TO COME. The menibcrs of the Leg-isloture In all likelihood will make a trip to the south country this summer or fall, likely in the fall, when the sugar beet factory nt ltnyimuid is operating. This trip will enable tliem to see our thriving town, nml the Town Council and Hoard of Trade should write away at once ami invite *Me Legislators to visit us, it thvy make a trip to ltayinond. It will pay tfio members to see all of Alberta. A good many of them know little about this section, mkI a trip down hero will enlighten them on our resources and activity. As a bonus to the beet migar industry is a matter for early consideration by the Legislature, a "sit to tho factory at Hayraoin! is ncces sary In order to inform tlie members of Tarliauicnl on coplo to commit. A good many of the fire insurance companies could eeca|en or arise by any foreign inxusion, or by any insurrection, riot or civil commotion or by any military or usuri>ed power, or by any explosion, earthquake, volcanic eruptions, subterranean Arcs, or hurricane, and this policy shall ranaln suspended �ih! be of no effect In respect to any loss or damage which shall happen or arise during the period of any of thene contingencies." It is understood live companies will not enforce this cluuse, but will pay dollar for dollar If they do, the public will consider thetu more generous than recent articles have made thorn out to be. GOSSIP By.h� ON THE SIDE! T.uicr CAN'T COME TOO SOON. Jos. J. Jlilis rood is invded in tho development of Southern Alberta. At present this portion of the west iH without rnrlroud coui|�'Utioti, uin! we all know that unu|Ktition amongst railroads is .vuinuhnmg and helpful, as instance thu cu.se of fcXi-monton, where the entrance of the C. X. It. brought down frleght rates and enabled thy tnorohajttfc there to fcell their goods far more cheaply, �� that the entire cmuiuunit) derived the benefit. Tho ll-ill Inn-' has un opportunity to open a givut section of the country between the Hockiea �u\l Winnipeg. If it does this couiiln. will soon bo rapidly net tied where it i� now-bare prairie. Down east, some of the pupers fear Hill's line will divert trade to the Lnitod SUvtes. Wo baw no faar of that. Thu incichuuts Jiuio will be loyal to Canadian in teres tf., and if they order their goods bhip|�-d >u over the new roml, that Uoes not mean they will come front American points. As it is vveu now, shipments are made from Wiutui>eg over �the Ureal Northern t0 Lt.Uii.iWge, and the buuie will be thu i.imj wlieu J.J.IIill buiHs a givut iianscon-tinental liau. Competition is iho hd; u-ikIo, and we must liuiv uiiIiinhI cxiiipeti-lion here, it will uot hurl t'aiiitdiau interests a I/it. Un the otlivr hand, this part of Canada will u- de\eloped, ami the imuiufacturei-h unvl wholesalers of the east will find a bigger market to cuter to than �\or Let us keep the grass on the town square ns green ns possible until tho fall. Vse water upon it freely, so that tlie color will not have a chance to fade. Nothing would brighten up the town 'better than 11 green covering on the square until tho cold weal her. Now Unit the sporting or-gntviv.ations propose to pntronlzo thu new athletic grounds, civi*tion and breathing spot for our citleens. So better advertistwent for our climate could be offered. Strangers wouhl nt once be forced to romark with admiration, -"Lothbridge is tho prettiest place in Alberta." Wo have the opportunity now to develop a fine park. Lot us nvniil ourselves of it. II will pay us, even if tho town has to go to tho expense of having a gardener to look after tho park. Not n cHizen woukl object to money spent in this way, for it wouhl be a park \ov the pcoplo, not for any class or w�l of individuals. Now is the time to promote the scheme and not a moment should be lost. TWO VKHSIONS. EDITORIAL NOThS. Keep a boosting. These rains will bo as wvlconw; as gohi dolluis to the farmers. That additional gruut from the Town Council will prove u splendid stimuluiit for tho Hoard of Trade. Watch Lethbridgc grow when the work on the t*. 1*. it, improvements Starts. Canada proved Its liiendlmcss to tho United States in a substantial way when it voted Sltjo.uw to the San Francisco aulterers. Not a citizen la the outiro Dominion will raise the Rligtotcst objeotlon to this expenditure. Jas. Fax acted wisely when ho re-narkod at tho concert ttie other night that persons must not bo shown to a scat while a nunvber on the programme was being rendered. The concert was armounood to start at 8.80, hut people come wandering ia M late M 0.80, Buiely our olt- Chk-f I'arry is walking around with a big stick these days, commanding people to clean up their yards, it is lo be ho|m'd the day is near when every citizen will lie so ambitious for the cleanliness of the town that he will have his yard looking "spick and span" as soon as the snow lenv � tlie ground. Tho new Liberal leader in Manitoba possesses sound Mens on political morality, in a recent interview ho is reported to have said: He believed that they in Manitoba could so exert their influence against political corruption, ttoat they woukl awaken the conscience of -the wholo of the Dominion in the peril that hail ulrvudy stolen the legislative freedom away from the people, and threatened the very foundations of tho constitution of the Dominion. This evil of public corruption was tho reason which wan keeping him in tho political field. He realized Uio tremendous evil that existed today in thu C'uiiudmn political field, and hoped that tho Liberal party in Manitoba would begin the movement (,r reform. At tho present time parties were ut in power by tlie money of cor|>orations, and that involved the politician in a course of action which spoiled ftie neglect of fiublic interests at the expense of corporation in-terebts. To couittat this state of things was the paramount reason that kepi him in political life." A man with Mr. Hiown's atuliitions is needed id political lifo. Corruption of all sorts must be stomi>ed out if we want Canaaa to stood Ih>-foru the world as a clean country. The interest* of the jh-oplo should always iw cons/dered paramount Corporations shouki receive their duo but not one whit more. Soma pub-tic men may suy 'this iloes not j>ny, but vim e.\|h-rience of Folk, In Missouri, Im Folletu^ in Wisconsin, Jerome in New York, and Weaver in lMiiluik-lplua, shows that the people will always stand by the ntan who fight.-! corporations and corruption Mr. lirown's attitude in Manitoba deserves the loyal support of the people ui that province. Mli.v lins'nt LetlAridge a mounted infantry corps. The 15th Light Horse, with headquarters at Calgary, bus several companies in the south country, but none here. A military training would be a first-rate thing (or some of our young men. It ought to lie easy to form a regiment in this district, with companies ut i'incher Creek, Macleod, Cardslon and here. We have plenty of goint horsemen, and thu military experience would Is) of inestimable valuu. I'raiiie fires ore too froquont. If proper care is taken,by the settlers, these tnvs, winch ulways do damage to their own property, as well as otlu-rs, could bo avoided. Always keep u lire within your control, for if A on don't, there is trouble ahead.
