For a time the issue trembled in Hhe balance. Jt'hc "Last.Ditchers" led by Lurd llalJbcrry, developed'surpris- ing strength, and.had it not been thai thirty Conservative peers at the last minute' voted .with the govern- ment, King would have' been called upon-to exercise his preroga- tive and create a sufficient number ot new peers .to pass the bill. Thus the great; struggle that'.startecl two years ago "'hen lion. David Lloyd-George, chancellor of the Exchequer, brought In his-famous ended. The Parliament' Bill, passed, practic- ally limits the power of the [louse of Lords to a two years' supremacy ve- to and vastly increases the powers of the H-oitse of Commons.

The Archbishop :of York and Canterbury ami nine, hjshops lined .up with the government, 'lint the Bishop of liangor, and Wor- took the opposite side: The Norfolk, Leeds, Mat-thor- ough, Newcastle, Northumberland, Somerset and voted tho opposition ululc mo--t ol the other dukes refrained Trom vot- ing There was bIcitj cxciteme t when voted (or the bill. As soon as the result was known it was. ihe House of Commons, when the government mem L'ers broke into a remarkable demon- stration. CUNEWILL ACCEPT Lethbridge is going to have one of the best hands In Western Canada. At least that is tho opinion of the baud committee composed of C. .1. Kelt- storm, Oeo. Honk and (I. W. Itoulnson. They have .succeeded in obtaining the services ot Frank Cllne. of Great. Falls as loader and be will leave for Leth- bridge next, Monday to take over Ihe aeth-c leadership of the organization. Mr. Cline is tlie leader of tlie famous. Black Eagle band of Great Falls which created such a good impression on Lofhbrldge people on their visit bore last Saturday. That band In their per- formance on Gall. Square on. Saturday evening showed that it Is one of the most finished musical bodies in tbe northwestern and the- Great Falls people attribute its success to the able management of Frank Cllne.

Shepherd President iaus for a reorganization of tho city band, tlie committee sot into communication with Mr. Clinc with the result that he wired them that lie would come at their terms. He is a Canadian by birth, and understands music in all Its phases, and the band committee may deem themselves very lucky In securing his services. With the Leth- brldge band reorganized and under his able leadership there is not the least doubt that Lethbrldge will soon be proud of a band Of the character of tlio Black Eagle band of .Great Falls. All the musicians of the city are pleased that his services have been secured, for they know that in him they have a leader who will get re- sults.

Directors will Make Spec- ial A Great Falls Tribute If Lotbbridge has two or three thou- sand visitors at the fair on Aug. 22 23, 24 and 25, how are they going to be .ocoinmodated? That is tlie auestion which is troubling the minds of the directors, and they arc trying to draft o'tti some pla'n to meet the difficulty. There is not the least question, in tho minds of any of the directors that there will be the largest crowd in at- tendance at this year's exhibition of any in attendance at any exhibition ever held here. The fair has been well advertised all over the province. It Is recognized as the great provincial falr'of Southern Alberta, and the very tact that nearly (I2S.OOO has been ex- pended on the grounds and buildings this summer tend to draw n large representation from all the surround- ing towns. In order to ensure accommodation for the visitors in Uie city for this occasion it is altogether..likely that an information bureau will be estab- lish, and every available room in the city .will secured .by. the fair man- agement so that eveVypne may be as- sured of good quarters while in Lelh- hridffe during fair week. The plans of. the directors are. work- ing out well. Their new buildings are nearly completed, and "the race track is In good shape, having packed well in the recent and tbe fine new grand stand which will shade the spec- tators during the long sunny 'afternoon hours will bo finished in a few days. Regarding the fair grounds and buildings here the Great Falls Tri- bune has this to say: "One of the things which wo saw at Lethbridge which our city could well afford to said Secretary Oliver U. Holmes of the hoard of commerce, "is the fair buildings. They have ex- cellent accommodations for the ex- hibitors of all lines of produce and stock ever seen at a fair exhibition, The stock sheds are especially com- modious. "The buildings are planned along well defined.linos with a view to ob- taining the greatest possible architec- tural .beauty. The grounds, are well laid out and the buildings are all sub- stantial structures. It was a pleasure to see how, well they had builded their fair plant when it was remembered It was only a counly Institution. 1 am not speaking disparagingly of our state fair pjant, but tho Lethlinilgo plant has some features the state grounds iho.uld copy."
