A STARCH FACTORY AND P()*CATO,GRADING IN THE-MATTEDR oYindusUies;fbrJIk city the Herald has ..-.more-than once referred to the necessity of.firstly concentrating eflforts,towards.the ac,quiring ofJhose for 'vvhich the locality is naturaUy suited. We haye dwelt, on ^ft^ anipunt-of flax straw which goes to -waste.'annuallyjan;^.'which ought to" be .utilized. TJais should be a subject for the oo'nsidcration of the Industrial �Department. At -the -present time there ha^,fl>ejBn>bfpijgh^^ notice the opportunity.which potato growng in |he taitoes in Aylberta,';and m^ enough starch fbr all the western provinces, fgiv ^,500. If Mr. Finley's J}gur�s,'are-correct, the^afl'^ be �|n in(?aitr|�itoymariufM plant here. - ' \ � Southern Alberta, as -wre.knpi?^, grows a large quantity of potatoes, and conditions are iveiyi'Suitaj^J^ for the cultivation of the plant. In addition .to giying-Ji^thBridge something in the way of an indiistry^Mch comesin line.v^^ utihEirig of local resources, the .establishment of a/StfercH factor will serve as a means of.i shaping the .potato industry, and..,placing it on strictly commercial linesf. /Jt-will help-out the poKcy nrged of grading  the tubers,' ^ It has been-pointed out that where the .grower suffers materially is, in,the-absence of "this essentitJ.for ^successful market-i^g> "Wefia-veTiad^it told that alocal-nieivh^t was compelled >4>^^ade aH Ws'ship^ potalqe8,Jl)ef6re';iie could sell them, aji^ the work cost nim $2.00 a ton in'labor alone, besides the less from the small'an^ bad potatoes graded out. For the benefit of 'farmers -thia^fact needs advertising, andi therebyi they -will learn it|ie importance of-jp-ading their produce before submitting it for sale. Thi^vis^.a process which every; enterprising producer who expects to get the-most^ for Ms goods shoiild practise. It wUI be 01^ of the solutions of the difficulty complained of in getting gpod value for farm produce. Competition has to be met with with the B. C- potatoes, and with the shortening of marketing jdistM^ wiU be all to Jlie benefit of the-local man. The starch factorj' spoken of will absorb all the small and terior potatoes graded out, and.-will also encourage the farmer be careful in his labor by giving hinx.a source of supply for ' jhe potatoes grqded out. v The importance of grading potatoes cannot be too strongly insisted on, and, as something in the way of the outline of an industrial policy, the institution of a starch factory is an extremely commendable suggestion* Calgary is thinking of buying a, coal mine from a Leth-bridge man. When it comes to coal Lethbridge can show all the rest of the Alberta cities the way. What has become of the revival of the movement to change the name of the Belly River? Is the task so impossible that it has been dropped again? Nobody will have a grouch if the reduction on express rates.makes for cheaper fruit this summer. There is room for a great reduction In this direction. With meat still soaring, cheap frnit would be a Godsend to the housekeeper's pocketbook. A notable precedent was set in the ruling of the Board of License Coniniissioner� Tivhcn dealing with the North Lethbridge appUcations qn Saturday. Alberta's license officials are men who do their duty to the strict letter of the law.  THE AWAKENING OP CHINA yilAT A NEW LIGHT is dawning in Cliina is evidenced by the  message senfj out by the government urging on the Christian churches there to observe the Sunday just over as a day of prayer, that the repubUc may be-guided to a wise solution of ; the critical problems besetting it as a result of the extraordinary t 'changes which have taken place in the. nation since the historic ft' revolution. Prayer was asked for the President, for the consti-tution, for the recognition of the republic by western nations, ' J Ipr the maintenance of peace, and for the election of strong and IS^Itvjrtuous men to office. There may of course be something of superstition in the A \,|PPeal. The new republic may be possessed of that spirit which ^yi^^ctuated the Athenians to erect their.manifold altars, including '^le ofithe "unknovfngod," so as to place all. deities, and earn 5r'the state a beneficiary indulgence all "round. Even if this be 3>'the;neiiv Chinese spirit is encouraging, in that it betokens a ^aluiigiromithe old intolerance which was accustoiped to be Sown" to all nationalities and creeds other than what properly iSngid to Chin^, i^;is.'?tl4S', awakening which is impbrtant, because it senses ^iie||o1r'ac^^ what ie copsidered best to place the S^^^laji'liobtin'g-with ite In this Iwafjmpod there sests the hopefulnei^s that, in the uses made of ^^^^(^it^'gj^t^^aiipw, what has beep wont to be regarded as fs^^iW^kP^0i:MdTh^^ for carrying out Out of all the talk of better markets .for farm prodiicts something tangible should result. There is a lot -of room for improvement on preaeiit; conditions. AnytWng ;tb'^engender better relations betw'een the fajmer and the niierchant should be welcomed. Arbor Day comes in less than two weeks. Generally Arbor Day is a cleaning up day. Letlibridge needs npne of them. But Arbor Day might be made a "Beautiful Lethbridge" day. How about getting the sweet peas planted? How about a sweet pea carniyal? Seeding is practically fltiished in tlie soi|tij. By May tat there will bd yerj' Httle to be done. The sotxth has established an early seeding record this year. With favbrdble conditions an early harvest may be looked for, and Southern Alberta will be selling its grain when oilier parts of the weSt-*ate hars'esting. Having received something over $3,000 from the city treasury this year already, it seems rather peculiar that the local Board of Trade should consider itself a closed corporation. The Herald is sure that the people as a -whole are,not satisfied with the. way the press are being shut out of the meetings. It does not tend to foster a community spirit between the rest of the towns in the south and Lethbridge. That spirit was becoming very noticeably toward the end of last year. Can Lethbridge afford to do anythiAg that would lose that to us? Spokane Commercial Club started oUt the, other evening to $70,000 fpr a "Busier Spokane" fund. The Spokane Com^ mercial Club is one of the really live conimercial organizations of the west. They haye helped to build up the Inland Empire as no other organization of its kind has done. Last year the value of the ptpducts' raised in the Inland Empire, of wMch Spokane is the Reminds Him of Shaifghal (Coleman Bulletin) -Those new spring' hat� with 'the-elongated bow at the bank lopJf�Vlfk� Mthlng on earth ' exce-pt the; .old Shanghai rooster when be sports''His; bolsterouB-looklng spring tall- feaififiers. ! Havii Nova Seotlans F?el '. � MJalUax Chronlclfe) It Is one of thSsaddegt things from a Nova Scotlaa pdnt'qf vi'e/v, about' the situation at Qtta.wa,rtihat.a native of this provlnoe,' 'whos^ soub ii&ve !/eon conspicuous ln\tb,e gretii^ strus-^ "Tled-up" Votes (Edmonton Bulletin) .Under the Alberta election law a scrutineer may challenge the right of any" person appearing In the polling booth to vote. When he does so, ithe vote of the person whose right Is challenged Is not-deposited In the ballot-box, but is placed In an enve*!-ope with his name- and address writ-iten upob. it. Votes so "tied up" are not counted toy the deputy returning officer at the close of the poll, the re^ turns then given out indicating only .the complexion of the unchallenged votes cast. To deal with the challenged votes courts of enquiry are held, presided over by Justices of the peace, when the right of the parties concerned to vote Is looked Into. A person whose vote is challenged Is required to bo present at the court in person or"-by agent to establish If necessary his right to the franchise. It. he does hot aittend and is not so represented,' bis vote Is thrown out.  If he does attend or Is represented, thc onus is then upon the challenger to show that he had no rlghit to vote. If this is,proven, the vote Is thrcfwn out. If not proven, the vote Is allowed. Such of the protested votes ale allowed by the courts of enquiry are turned over to the returning officer,' who on a date fixed -by law opens the envelopes, counts these votes, and adds them to the returns of the un-.challenged votes. T.he exact result' 01 the ejection is not, thersfora kjiown-until the reiturnlng officer has these "tled-up" voles and added; them to the figures of the unchal-; leuged votes. And It occasfonany 0(^ur8 that !two "caddldate* divide the> .'unchallenged votes so evenly between' "(n^ that the .""tled-up" votes may; give the election to itho one who was Supposed to be defeated. Several la-fitances of this occurred In thfe elec-i 'Hons of last week.' In Edinonton, for. 'example, Mr. Bwlng and' Mr. Mac-' Kay are' separated by fewer votes, itljan are,enclosed in the envelopes, an'd -vyhen these are opened and the X'Otes counted It may be that Mr/ -f FOR SALE (Or Would Trade if Coaxed Just a Little) ' .
