C. Kemmis has always been in the orefront of provincial politics, cast as far as the Conservative arty in this district is concerned nd it was generally supposed last all the .nomination would come i him. Should John Kemmis drop ut, nothing would seem more fitting tan thatj the colonel should step iu- o his shoes. At any rate, it is not likely he will sit idly by and allow the coveted nomination to go to Mr. Ilerron without a struggle. On the other hand, Mr. Ilerron is not ciact- ly letting the grass under his feet. One oi the most prominent Con- servatives in the district made the statement the other day that Mr. Ilerron had been trying to get Hon. Robert ear for a couple of weeks or more. H such is. actually the case, Col. Kemmis had better look to his or he will likely come out second best.

Farm Lands in Town Limits An effort will be mudc by 'I'hos. W Mordcn, on behalf of tile Morclen cs tate, to have certain farm lands tak- en out of the town limits. Since the adoption of tile single tax in Al- berta the taxes on this property have been more than doubled, and as the land is only'used for agricultural pur- poses Mr. Mordcn apparently tines nol see why he should be called upon to pay such exorbitant, taxes. Since this land is not subdivided, it cer- tainly is hard to understand why it should be taxed so high. The fact Hint it is inside the town limits will not increase the average yield pet acre that it will produce. MesRrs.
