EARLY CLOSING Lethbridge, Autf, 27, 1908 Editor Daily Herald: I believe the following is of Ltt.HftfipOl.1 AUQMJT .If, itil, I GUI LTTTCIBOX not for expressed in thii col- Manitoba Saakatchewan Alberta Britiah Columbia Yukon 35 10 Intellects which have boeii appalled by the facility of expression possessed by happy scribes whose duty it is to record what happens lu tho fields of professional baseball may have recovered from the shock which they experienced during the sojourn of the cricket players within Chicago boundaries, but it will be admitted that the sensation was noticeable. By years of education, the populace has LKKJU taught to follow the festive fancy of tho baseball writer. Intui- tively, now, we understand what is meant when it is recorded that "Tho-. ney whaled a und we know j what happened when it is said that' another distinguished uum "pecked a couple of hits." Wheu a hero dovs something which is described as away on a we have a partly obscured but nevertheless workable idee, of what has come to pass. ''Two conveys an idea even to those who pass no money through the ticket window at the ball park and who travel not upon passes. But this other language is different, and when it is considered that the efforts of the gentlemen of Philadel- phia are untiring and that the pub- lic prints have recorded for i.hcm victory over certain othor gc in England, and that llaverford con- tinues to encourage the habit of crick et, may we be blamed for a premon- itory shudder indicating fear '.ve anal I be obliged to learn the intric- acies of a new language? 35 It can readily be conjectured, how- ever, that this equality of represen- tation will not long continue. CIVIL SERVICE REFORM The Conservative party has a plank in its platform favoring civil service reform. That plank was in- before the Conservatives came With apologies to the Marylebone club and the gentlemen of Worcester shire, it must be confessed that the American public, sportively'inclinec or otherwise, does not know wha has happened when it is related tha a gentlemanly cricketer has'made ai "attractive-stroke." Tho attractive- ness, as a baseball loving populace would see it, would be relative. 1r it sent the ball over the fence it might be highly attractive to those who sympathized with the man who made it. It is impossible to con- aslang publicity for it. Said one of our civic legislators to me on Tuesday, "Our carjy-ciosiug by-law is a godamfake." Said one of our merchant to me a few weeks 1 mis- take whenever you hear ft silver-tongued orator begin a perora- tion with these words he is worthy of watching, for he is to do some word twisting to make black appear 1 mistake not you "yourself were ino lirst business rniu "to agitate for early closing." Grunted. But what is early clos- Two p. in. or eight p. m.'i My definition of it hour tkat ill not be oppressive on my clerks, uid an hour that will enable me to ttend to the wants of those who rovide me with nucessasy food and aiment, without putting them or myself to unnecessary inconvenience. Some months ago our druggists there were two then) put up pruit- H! notices that their closing hour vould be 8.30 p.m. I hailed the free lorn to myself, but the agreement did not last 24 hours, and as you know, in self protection 1 was tied to business until 10 or 10.30 p.m. five days a week. Eight o'clock, then and now, appears to me a reason able hour for closing in my line ol business and in view of past exper- ience I call that early closing. Tha public agree with me too, and I know exactly what 1 say. Says another civic legislator, "Why the public petitioned for this bylaw." How many of the public? a hundred? "Oh no, not a many in Mnde by Co. 14 TO 19 QUARTER SIZES 3 for 50c I The tenttey Co, ltd. udttiii IN THI tUPREMt COURT OF AlBERTA GREAT REMOVAL SALE OF AT J into power in New Brunswick, yet ceive attractiveness which it the new government down there is dismissing office holders, right and left, in order to give positions to party-favorites. The Fredericton Herald number of Mr. Hazeu's supporters iu the Legislature have succeeded in landing jobs for their relatives dur- ing the comparatively short time they have had the privilege of dis- pensing patronage and brothers-in- law seem to have had some advan- tages. Mr. Glasier made the earliest start by the appointment oi his bro- ther-in-law to an engrossing clerkship ifr. John A. Young made a gallant effort in a similar direction but did not succeed, and then }fr. F. B. Black of Sackville, a defeated candi date in Westmoreland, landed his bro ther-in-law on the Central Railway Commission, and Dr. Bourque, M.P P. for Kent, has pushed in-law into a lucrative position ii the Crown Lands office. Mr. Pinde: does not st-em to have a brother-ir, law available for office, but he ha had his son appointed to a couple o positions up in Southampton. Thi is a pretty fair record of nepotis for the few months that the Haze government has been in power, it is said to be only a promise ould for tho friends of the iemen who chased it. America may be pardoned if .it docs ot grasp readily what is meant by a "short leg" and "a square leg." Jeneral sympathy would be extended o any one who afflicted with, he latter, but there is n the comments of the cricket ex- pert that the man who had it was asking for any connnisseratlon or ooked for it. Therefore we are left puzzled and passably unhappy. Aui- ricans may bt excused for not un- derstanding the reference to reojss or lunch. This will remain inexpli- cable. When comment is made as to a gentleman's and when reference is had to a state of being kuown as "mid-ofT." and when fur- ther description leads to the state- ment that "the telegraph showed 41 "fact, and principally merchants." When a little lad, 1 heard the gneat Liberal Orator Fox ilanle Boyd (Earl of Dalhousie) say on the pub- lic platform, "You can prove any- "thing you wish from statistics or "petitions." Not much to look at, but useful words, aren't they, and I can prove from 750 to 1.000 signa- tures of resident workers that the public of Lethbridge and vicinity re- gard this early closing thing as rank oppression. Says the civic legislator, "Quit it "Bob, you will only get the Labor "Union on your neck." I am old enough to have seen the union grow from a toddling infant to grown giant equipped for defensive fight and the emblazoned words on his shield "Down with have grown with the shield.

The eastern Conservative press is "talking through its hat" to uso a slangy expression, about the Saskat- chewan election. The" charge is made that the victory for the Liber- als was due entirely to the influence of the officials of the Dominion and provincial governments. N'ot one word to substantiate that charge has been printed. On the other hand the Conservative press can gather a lot of information, if they desire to tell the truth, about henchmen of the Manitoba Conservative government, pouring jnto every constituency in Saskatchewan in an effort to influ- ence voters for the Haultain candi- dates. It is generally understood that the ConservatiTes had to the Liberals to spend in the cam- paign. As a ir.iitlci- fact, the Con- j X Toronto. Aug.
