If the forces locking for the clmiiyos are success- ful then' will undoubtedly be a trviug out of direct legislation in an effort to iiboiisli the bar. In Saskatchewan the local outionists i were not sufficiently active to bring into cll'ect an act which would have placed a livosl powerful weapon in their hands for offensive urposos. Saskatchewan was given its opportunity auJ hardly lensured up to twenty-five per cent, of the requirements. LESSONS FROM THE CENSUS! THE CKNSUS K10UHES are. out. and they are creating some discussion. Those who expected are disappointed. 1 hose who hadn't deluded themselves into a false conception of te city's growth during the past couple of years were satisfied, hen there were a few who expressed pleased surprise; they louglit was aliout the right figure. The Herald is satisUed. We would have liked to have been ble to publish the larger figure but were satisfied that uch an estimate would have been large. It is well to know just where .we stand. What's the advantage trying-to convince- ourselves .we are what w_e are not. It creates us a false security. This year has becii one of house- caninjj in a good many western cjlies, and in every line of rivale enterprise. Lethbridge will do.well to follow suit, and by cccpfing the census figures as correct we are making a good start. And, after all, what is there to he. ashamed of in the census s published? It shows that Lclhbridge has added a population f 1000 in increase of ten per cent. Not s other cities have added, .we will .admit, but. we can console ursclves that our growth has been solid. Practically every man n Lelhbridge today has spmething to do. Business and industrial clivily has grown with the population. We hive n minimum of oating population. All of which places us in the best possible osition to develop the more rapidly on a solid foundation when le money situation eases iip, and the next era of rapid growth rrives in its natural sequence. But because 11000 is riiqre or less than anyone expected it is o reason why "we should sit back and be conieni; The best years 'f Lethbridge history are ahead. Let's do our share so that when he next census rolls around iu 1915 we'll be up in the lass. THE CABINET CHANGES. IT WAS (o be expected that in. tbe coarse of time the vacancy in the provincial cabinet creafed'bylhe death of Hon. Malcolm Mackenzie would be fiiled. Premier Sifton has not been in a hurry, likely concluding that it was best to go through a session and avail himself of fie opportunity of sizing up the new mem- bers. Ilis choice so far u ability and character is concerned is splendid. MrV Gariepy is no novice in public .service. For acme time he of the Ecjmootoa city council and be there displayed keen interest in public'aiiiira proved his admin- istrative capacity. He is a young man, loyal Albertan, aggres- sive and progressive in his ideas, and-we feel sure he will serve the province -well in Ms capacity ai a aieBiber of the provincial government. .He is a rcpresenlatiirB, of a large element in this province, the French Canadians, and no doubt his elevation to cabinet Junk will be highly .pleasing" let them. Those who know Mr. Gariepy, however, realize'his itstefcmahlike qualities and that lie will be a servant of the whole people and not of any particular class. Mr. Gariepy is given a department which .will at once'com- mand bis wholesouled attention, as he has. token a'live and in- telligent interest in" municipal.matters, for years. He: succeeds a man -who organized this department and put the new-Rura! Municipalities Act info effeot. Hon. Charles Stewart has provec himself one of the strong men of the miputry and it-is not sur- prising that he has been promoted tp'the-important departmen of 'Public Works. Mr. Stewart has made good, and in Wa neu trong and careful administrator. Undoubtedly for those reasons -Hon. Charles Mitchell has been placed m charge of tiie treasury As Minister of Public "Worts thaf gentleman proved his worth as an'administrator, and no question he will moat tin expectations of the province in his ne WHERE SASKATCHEWAN-FELL DOWN, I'T'HE Saskalcliewari government; had a Street ieglilation nc passed and in conformity with the fjtrrag.of the art, subrnitlei il to the peoplt for endorsation before putting it into effect. Thj was very disappointing to ihe advocates of this advanccc .measure, the people showing the most rkjriorabls apathy on th question. The act required a thirty per cent, vole of the tola ;registrafJon which waV which would yequlrc a vote o lover to bring the law effect. Tbe total figures at th are not yet available, but It is-not expected that it will read .one-third of the required number. In six cities where the advo ,cates principle fullerppporiurilly of presenting th claims of the legislation, tho vote was somewhat larger than i Ihe smaller places, bur at that it feii far'short of expectations Six cities only polled M47 for the law and 7.S9 ngainst. Fiflj rthrco towns rolled up 2006 for the act and 451 against. It wan i the rural localities, however, (hat tho greatest apathy was shown the total figures for anil against in fwenly-eighi villages and nira polls showing less than 900 voles pojled. The people of the west were supposed lo be almost unau iinously in favor of this principle.in legwlation, hut the vote i Saskatchewan was quite an eye-opener. Just what exnlanatio will be forthcoming for the failure of tho referendum is no known.but it looks >s if (lie people are not sufficiently educate .to go to the polls on a more or few abstract question. .If there had been a general election or' even the municip: contests there is no doubt but ihat the resuU would have hoc ..vastly .different.' The working up of local excitement over som Candidate or candidates would have brought the people out, and Judging from the complexion of the small vole the resull would 'have been an overwhelming endorsalibn of the act. It remains to bfl what action the government will take, bill ns the net provides for ifs cmlm-solion hy a thirty per vote it looks as if (he goveniment could do nothing but lei (lie law main a dead letter for the present. In Albertn we have a direct legislation act which was passed by the government mid made ..effective without a referendum. It is said to be an excellent piece of legisluliou so far as pliraseplogy. is.'cgnecnicd, with the c.xccp- BUS1NESS MEN'S BIG ANTI-HOME RULE DEMONSTRATION IN ifculj appear.

It is lerrlblo to think of the date 1SSS in Roman. It runs something like of. tbe letters may bnve been left out fc'ere: IIDCCOLXXXVHI. The only trouble about this Vi'llsonian re- form of the Inscriptions Is that tbe Homan letters are decoralivo of a fa- cade, and tbe Arabic are not.

OUR POINT OF VIEW Bonar Law seems lo be looking for a martyr's crown. The hope of President Wilson that President Huerla would e starved out of office bids fair lo be soon a realized fact.

There is great federal prosperity in'the line of taxing' the people but in no oilici- way that appeal's to bo.visible.. Saskatchewan has lived up to promise and an anli-bonusing jylaw has The three, western prairit' provinces lave now a uniform policy and the location of industries will be on the merit of the town or city as a distributing point, labor centre and other factors which legitimately enter the question. Some of the smaller towns in the soulh complain' of the. lack of interest in municipal matters. Evidently Lelhbridge is mon- opolizing aH the excitement. The Conservatives insinuate that the heads of trusts in this country are Liberals. Admitting that to he true for (he moment, it might be veil to point out that the Conservative government dislikes offending the trusts more than the Liberal party! "Were the trusts not lined up with the Coriservativcs in 1911? The man at the head of a trusl has no politics other than his pockclbook.
