It looks to us like n hopeless un-idertak'ing for nrore reasons than the-Lbthbri'dgo Fair or that Mr. and .something might j-ct lie done in the support amongst fair-minded people. 'Mrs. This and 'Wiat were in Ijeth-brili^ last week attending the l'\vir. The Fair is recognized to l>e moi-o than a; local affair, i rho two institutions are apart and different, so that the establishnK-nl nf such institutions at points widely n.|>ant wiU not in any way clash or interfere with the work they arc to Verily Providence is smiling on |one. In the first place, Wm. Whyto, do. The constituency of Oleichen is Southern Allx-rta. Lightning and cy-jvic-e-l'res. of the C.P.K. hos stated clotMB are playing havoc in parts of emphatioally that the C. P. R. the eastern provinces and states and Manitoba has been 'having severe Imil Ctonna on 'the bead of its season of drought. Southern Alberta is not having even its proberbial windstorms this year, and the rain that fell recently came the day before and the days after tlie Ijethbridgio fair. The high-level bridge contract has been really and truly let, The Mac-leod Advance will now Ix-liovo that would not entertain tho proposition. They will build the bridge themeel -ves to suit 'their own ixjquiremionts and no other. And if they entertain such a propos'ition, what would it mean? If the CP.It. were to share the u.'je of 'the bridge with tlw public they wiouki naturally expect the public to help 'very considerat>ly in paying for it. The Provincial Oovern -mun't and the city of Lethibridgo vouki Ix? the proper bodies to share Mw cost. Hut sharing the cost of the foundations for the bridge \TOro Isiruotuies tha/t mean an expenditure at least more solid than the ioim daei'ons it had for the story it published ahout the. site being abandoned. At 'its last /masting the Stratbcona Council passed a by-law providing #or the nun!iberiney interests to sec both sides of a (question. Their idea is that money makes the ninro gmos nnd will come front the district to the south and tlu! iTOHle 'frojn the nor,th is a very coasidcrable item and will he greater as the country becomes more thickly settled. This trade, however,, will 'not assume proportions that will cause the formmtion of another town across the rivor if any provision is made foe 's�ErvcthbrAdgc district As a n>ixed farmiing centre Loth -�bridge is withoirt a rival in all, the western provinces.

The policy of la-xinj; stocks, as are carriotl'^jy the stores what 'is absolutely necessary for the j of this city and the proximity of such building up of the province is siniplv What all our provinces want including Alberta, is capital to do -vclop their resources. Tho idea of di.s \ will attract, the great bulk of the IK'ople to tliem. H is estimated that the cost of in-clint' railway 'including machinery counag4ng capital which they nwd so |and cnr.s for carrying teams and badly is the height of absurdity. We jwayons, the iro.stlework, engines and all, will he not more than $7.'),000. This .sort of scheme win'hanlly * bo would recomiraend Allwrta, or any other province, to repeal this kind (ifilegislation as q'tiickl.v as possible. One of our older provinctw dd iIks .'Samc kind of thing, but any prov-�iiWe that tries this experiment will lia^'e to pay for it three fold. The great danger, however, of this sort :.s( v.'legislation is that it naturally ;^ia*d� ^ to the withdrawal of capital aK6g�Fthcr." The Chronicle evidently hus con -vinood Hself that Alljerta cannot get along wrthout l,oans. Thait is (luito true. "Capital is needed to develop our resources. But is it not ociually ! iiecos.sar.v if eleva'tors are erected on I tin; other side. What is rociuirod is , II ciiiivenient way of transporting the !|ieo|il>"s for transportation to the supply or capital. At othertinncs capi'tal inuBt look for good invest-mant, that it may make larger .interest. If the province or the nvuni-cipalMM would not tax anything "they need so badly" where would the -revenue come frwn?

The people of tho electoral district of Lethbridge might a letter ,to Premier Rutherford and the tJovemmcnt on the subject of Agricultural College that would read very .similarly to the letter written by Mr. Riley, who uses the German spoiling for Calgary, viz:-Cieichen in making his claims: Lethbridge, Aug. 15, 1907 The All�rta Government, Edmonton: Gentlemen,-Wo learn from the press of the province that several different points are pushing their claims lor the agricultural collcgo. And, Sirs, without in any way wishing to belittle the claims of other |>arts oi our fair province in this regard, we do most res(>ectfuH.y desire to place l>ei'ore you for your consid-era't'ion the claims of the constituency of Lethbridge, whiich we haVc jthe honor of repre.sonting. Firstly, wo may say, .Sii-s, that the report which 'has been circuUvt'Od to the effect that the agricultural college should go with and beconi'a part of our university does not fiml any support amongst fair-minded people. The two institutions are oport and differewt, so tlW't the establishment of such institutions ot |K)ii>ts wid^aly apart will not in any wuy or interfere with the work they are to do, Tho con.stituoncy ot Lothibridge is served b.v tho Canadian Pacific nailwa,y from end to end and 'by tlxj AWierta Railway & Irrigation Compnny from corner to corner, awl 'icing occupiC'd partly by the rancher, p.aitly b.v the grain-grower, partl,\' by the fruil-growier, and partly by the er name for a bride, A .siip ntode 'oy tl�e edi'torial writer on 'the Ottawa Five Press was responsible for nn interesting contribU'-tion to Canadian politicali history, which is particularly apropos in view of the scorching which Sir Adblph Caron receiviod at the hands of the judge in Vancouver the other day. The Free Press writer had thoughtlessly bracketed the name of Sir Adolphe Caron with that of Hon. Georgw Fc^Jter wlnni speaking of'"the nest of traitors " of 190C. Mr. Caron contributes an indignant denial, declaring that a greater display of ignorance 'than was shown in associating him with Mr. Foster ns one of the lK)Hei's would be haixl to find. And this very natural repudiation is followed by a communication from oi correspondent' signing himself Iquoto," wiio comes to Sir Adol-pho'a dei'enco, who, he says, remained faithful to his loader, "and ;t was partly on account of this that, shortly after the di.ssolution bf parliament, and on the day when in defiance of all constitutional precedent Sir Charles IHiprwr became Presniior, a meeting wos hold in the' drawing room of the Speaker of'the Senate, having timer League and tl^e Western Canada Ijeagiia To settle the mutter, as well as give a good finish to the seoson, why not have a post-season scries lic -tweon representative clubs say the leaders ot each league.

Morrison has signed "Tip" CNeill, tho f'al'jnry outfielder, who will play 'right fiekl. Nunzie is being retained as spare catcher and fieUlor.

The games were the t*o evtremus of 'l.iasct>all. In one of the fastest' games of the season,Denny's Bumpers took the long c�>d of a 2-0 score. Ilollis pitched remarkable ball holding the heavy swatters down to one hit nnd struck out eight of them. Fogarty went some, t'Oo, sitriking out ten n>en and allowing seven hits. * IKKE ODEA.
