The people of this country can't afford to have a tie-up of a great transcontinental railroad at auy time and more particularly at this moment when a. great har- vest has to be moved i'rom the prai- ries. If the strike is prolonged bus- iness interests will suffer to a great- er extent than we imagine. The employees may be right in their attitude but the Herald believes it voices the senti- of the case it is a complete betrayal of the people's interests. The irrigat- ion water is needed for the square aud the streets, unless the city is prepared to replace it with a system of watering the trees, boulevards, and square with city water. How- ever the irrigation water is ours, by, agreement witli the A. R. I. Co. and why shouldn't we visa it. What is the sense of destroying its rneaas of access to our streets? lii the meantime however, the city council should get busy arid provide I for a liberal watering 01" the trees 011 it Wagstaffs NEW Strawberry Jam 51b. 71b. tins Just Received, IT'S HARD WORK ON A HOT DAY to. findl a drink that will cool and pefresh you liko a glass of sparkling and delicious Alberta's i Pride It is the drink par ior the the workman or who enjoys un invigorat- ing and pleasing beverage, which he always gets when Iw drinks Loth, bridge boor. meet of the people when wiys that both sides would do J it-he streets and en the square.

A celebration always brings more minion authorities aud Provincial au- thorities' as well as the Department of Labor should use their greatest efforts to bring the contending par- ties to terms. A VITAL MATTER Sooner or later the i city of Leth- bridge will have to face the problem of providing better transportation fa- cilities for the farmers across the river. If we remain content with the pre sent means of reaching the city wi must expect to lose a fine class o trade to the new towns that ar bound to spring up on the other of the river. The river road, n matter how much mousy is spent o the hills at the different sides, wi never be satisfactory to the farmers. The pull is too nv.ich for the farm- ers' teams and if any kind of mar- ket exists in the new towns the trade wiii .go that way. The City Council and Trade "ought to devote their atten- tion to the solution of this problem. No how it is handled it looks like a great expense to the city. It is worth a lot to Lethbridge to re- tain this trade and a reasonable out- lay -would be loyally supported by the ratepayers. How would it do to endeavor to make some terms with the C.P.R. to carry teams and drivers over the new bridge on cars made for the purpose r less of a crowd to. the city, es- ecially when held on a "national hoi- day.

LECTIONS and RENTALS Fire, Life and Accident Insurance 5 Whitney Block r V Board ol Labor Bay, the next general holi- day, is to have a good celebration under the auspices of the local Trades and I-abor Council. The city coun- cil has been asked to assist the labor men with a grant of money. It should be forthcoming. It-will be spent in the city and will encourage the men in charge of the affair to provide the citizens with, a real fine [day's entertainment. Nobody, ex- cept the veriest crank, will object. As to the city's powers, if it has the power to contribute to the fair, it surely has the power to make a grant to the labor day celebration. OUR POJNT OF VIEW Isn't t about time these difnieucas hetwecu the two bands were referred to the Hague Tribunal The teams could be loaded on at one end of the bridge and carried across very quickly. It would be out of thu question to expect the C. P. R. to move a train across the bridge at every hour of the day but they might be willing operate a team train each way twice a day. Under such an arrangement a time table could be "Uxed and the farmers would soon be able to regulate their departure from home so as to catch the tram across the bridge. Whether this plan is feiisible or not the Herald cannot say but Li it is it looks like a solution of a serious problem. It is a great pity that a more de- termined effort was not made at the time the C.P.R. decided to buiH the big bridge here to have a traffic bridge built in connection with it. As the years go by we will realize the value it would have been to the more and more the value it would have been to the city.

The square, the owner of which is in doubt though the betting odfls seem to be in favor of the Irrigation Co., could be created into one of the best advertisements for the city. To- day however, it :s the worst .we have. The Herald still believfcs it is the place for public buildings, at least u portion of it. With by the two governments the city located there the support of the re- mainder of the square, the park part of it, would fall on the shoulders ofi three governments. They could set' apart a fund for park maintenance I and then we would have a property j in the heart of the city that would be a credit. But let us think of the present. What about those trees? Shouldn't, they be watered regularly? Con- trary to expressed opinion tho Her- ald believes the city is not so short of water that it cannot keep tho trees of the city watered.
