Templeuian was given a reception by the citiiWRS ot Cran- brook the other day; by the citizeus ronember, not by the Liberals. That sounds good. It shows that Cranbrook possesses the right sort of oc'oplo. They can make a public man welcome no matter what party he belongs to or how close it may be to till election. Other places might very well copy Cranbrook iu tuis respect. Qjim l-ondou. Out., is the scene of a disaster. Within tho last few years a number ot buildings in that city have collapsed with.loss of life resulting. What is the matter? is tho natural query. No oflicial ex- planation has been given but it ap- pears as though the architects iu London are the poorest sort and the buiUHiig inspectors worse. 3y the way how closely are the new build- ings goiug up in Lethbridge examin- ed by a building inspector. The City Council might very well investigate. EXPOSE TORY CORRUPTION Halifax, Aug.

If any of our contemporaries arc WE DON'T WANT THEM At harvest time Western Canada wants help but not of the class the C.P.R. brougnt up from the east this year. Creatures who smash property, insult and attempt to disrobe women travellers, and stone and assault peo- plo living along the line of the rail- road are not wanted in this country. We are opposed to undesirable Immi- grants from across the sea, but we question if they are not much, better than these hoodlums from Eastern Canada. The C.r.H. runs a ten dollar ex- cursion for harvesters and what can be expected but that the riff rufl, of eastern cities, will avail themselves of the low rate? Put the rate ii[ higher. We may not get so r.ianj men, but we will get a better class and that is what we want. The C. P. R. should not al- low a passenger to buy a ticket on a harvesters" excursion in the future unless he can present a certificate that he is a law abiding citizen.
