'T'llK Mexican situation grows inleresling. 1 ilurrla had Mudcro murdered and set him- j-clf up ;is "king." but Tailed in gaining for IIAIH- sclf Hie recognition of Uncle Sam, looked upon by European nalions as the southern republic's protector. Carranza would be king. He has taken up Ihc cause of the Maderoisls, and up till last Sat- urday it looked as if he were .laying a good.foun- dation for reaching his goal. And now Villa would be king. And whatever else you may think of him, you will have to take off your hat Io him for be lias this lime made; a subtle move. Carranza.never was more Ulan a figurehead anyway. He lent an air of respectability to ihe rebel cause. That was his chief function. Villa always was.the fighting brains of the Constitu- tionalists. One could not think of. the rebels without thinking of the "Little who] if all accounts be Irue, is idolized by ers.' Hnerla has bad an open break with the United Slates. "He may eliminated from Mexi- can presidential possibiUfies. Carranza displayed a tendency toward enmity toward Ihc Slatec in fo Bryan re- garding Hie taking of. Vera Cruz. He.-has shown his teeth. Eliminate him. But Villa is the hero of the hour. He has sent the war departmental Washington a note affirm- ing his friendship for the United Slates; he hiis jailed his chief, Carraiiza; be is the prime favor- ite in the running just now. If Villa is really wise, and not merely crafty, he may yet occupy the Presidio in Mexico City with Uncle Sam's recognition to back him up. If he is Ihe strong leader he is said to be, it is just possible he may be the man who will yet bring peace and prosperity to war-ridden Mexico. Cer- tainly public sentiment is swinging his way. But Mexico, no one knows what the day or the hour may bring forth. INTHKIOKW CUSTOMS IIOVSH AT TAMl'ICO p This is nos- in jwssession of tho Hulled Slates (owes.

This is a pretty pickle. Who's, iii ihc wrorfg? We Imvc our own ideas ahout that, hut would like io see the cnse threshed out for the public benefit. The cily of Lcilibridgc is paying out about cold cash every year to maintain a health and snnifalion department for the .protection of Ihc lives of the people. Why? Ask yourself that question, and then ask if you think you are going Io get youi money's worth from a hunch that splils on what is really the first controversial point raised in the year. How would ihcy be lilte- ly to act in case a really serious epidemic were to break out, which, fortunately, is a remote sup- position? If laws regulating health and sanitation arc having at all, and if it's worth while to pay in this town to keep the machinery in Action, the people have a right to expect some- jhing better than half way measures, As things f'nrid now, it's joke. So for the third time in as many weeks, we )sk the cruesUpn, "Is the Hoard of Ilcnllh in favor compulsory'vaccination for one and all?

A LIKELY SUGGESTION. MR. COTE, M.P.P. for Grouard, made a likely suggestion at a public meeting in Calgarv on Friday night when he advocated the establish- ment of a Bureau of Slines in this province. Lelhbridge, and the of Southern Al- berla for that matter, will readily endorse Unit uggestion. Mr. Cole attended a session v" Ihc Mountain branch of the Canadian Mining Institute at Kernie last week, avid it is to he pre- iiiincd that ha put the suggestion forward there. The Calgary Morning Albcrtan gives the fol- lowing account of what Mr. Cole said in this con- nection: "Mr. Cote said that lie had come Io Calgary as delegate to a mining conference to advocate the establishment of a mining bureau in liiis pro- rince. "The province of he said, "had im- mense mineral resources, and now ranked as the second province in the Dominion as a producer Nova Scotia alone The speaker said that lie felt that the output could be increased very much if there were a bureau to lake care of that industry. "We import tons of coal, while, we only prodticc declared. Mr. Cote. "It is up to us to find a-'market for'! our own coal. .11 will increase our supply of labor and more laborers provide a wider'market for our farmers." "SVc have a department of agriculture to ad- vance the farming industry. Why not a department of mines to advance the mining industry', which ranks second to farm- ing in this province. Mr. Cote pointed out the need of enlarging the market for our coal. He might have gone further and mentioned that Ihc mineral possi- bilities of Alberta are as yet barely scratched, and shown bow" a live department of mines could help to interest prospectors so that our mineral resources might the more quickly be located. Of course the province as yet has no control over the mineral resources. But that should nol delay the government in making some move in the direction pointed out by Mr. Cote. Mr. Bor- den may possibly decide some of these fine days to live up to his promise to turn over to the pro- vince its natural resources without awaiting that opportune lime in the dim and distant future when a Coiisirvniive will he in pow- er al Edmonton. school at.
