Train.., Welcome, Buck-Eye Editors IF THE OHIO EDITORS, who are xisiting the city had the idea that Southern Alberta is a rain Jess country, they will have that idea dispelled forever after their visit here. This may be valuable and in- teresting, inrormation for them, but the circumstance that is the basis of the information interferes seriously with the plan of the local Board of Trade has for entertaining them. 'But rain or no rain, the editors from the Buckeye State are heartily welcome to the city and district Southern Al- berta has already received many peo- ple and a good deal ot capital from the State of Ohio, and has al- ways glad to welcome both, and will continue to have pleasure in receiving more. The people here are confident that what the visitors see and hear will convince them of the fallacy many of the malicious reports th have been spread broadcast in the State in times past and confirm wlia ever good reports they may ha heard of the country. It is the hop of the people of-Southern Alber that the visitors will .be able to see lot of the country and that they wi use the great power they have a newspaper men to spread that know edge. Newspaper men are always co iiilly welcome, for this country ha no fear of the utmost publicity an courts the fullest investigation b men who are the disseminators i knowledge and the moulders of publ opinion. Therefore, the arms of th city and district are open to receiv the large party coming from ind surrounding" states! Tory Jeremiahs WHILE it is curious, if not ludi- crous, to observe the untold evils which, according to the Tory prophets, are before Canada should the reciprocity pact be passed, it Is pathetic to note .the small es- timate fhey hold of the national char- acter. Throughout their predictions rings the note of Little Canadianism. An extension of trade markets is go- ing to affect Canadian loyalty. The Canadian is not so astute as his neigh bor, for he is going to allow him to steal his markets. By accepting re- ciprocHy he H? going to deal a death blow to British Preference, and so on. The intelligent stranger must wonder what stuff we are made of. In line ifith the forecast of these Jeremiahs Is their extent of vision. Canada must keep within Rself, and not ex- tend its commercial sphere. It must fix its eyes on home, live for the pre- sent, and be a Little Canada. A case in point Is a statement with re gard to che Niagara peninsula, which it is laid down, can supply the wholi of Canada with fruit. By keeping up a protective -duly tliis market is con sfdered large enough. Yet, unde: tariff conditions, for the present de manrl, only a part is used, "fully ha) is implanted." It is further stntet that "rhe implanted land is waiting to double or 'quadruple in value, when- ever the market demands more The fruit lands of British Columbia are not taken into consideration. The question, therefore, arises how long is this lajid to remain uncultiv- ated? Is it to He idle until the pop- ulation of Canada, has assumed a suf- ficient growth to warrant its cutiva- tion? or is every acre to be used up, as it could he, for supplying the needs of a wider demand from without? The common-sense reply to this can safe- ly be left to the electorate. An Independent View RL. RICHARDSON, publisher of the Winnipeg Tribune, for many years has been a bitter opponent of the Laurier government, and cannot bg. accused of any sym- pathy for the government in taking the stand he has on the reciprocity waiter. His pronouncement on the Issues before the people in the pre 1 lent election therefore, be tak- I aa a firm conviction, without any party 'bias. Editorially commenting on the dissolution of and the ordering of an election, the Tri- 'bune says: "On September 21 the electors of Canada will be called upon to pro-
