The so- ciety has in years past accomplished a great -deal for the city and the sur- rounding country. But it is the gen- eral opinion that the time has come for a launching out into something larger and representative of a much larger district.'The time is past for merely a Lethbridge and district fair, and "has come for a Southern Alber- ta exhibition. If the parks by-law passes on Monday as it assuredly will, it is likely that "if a good, live, energetic directorate is elected that priTI" a good deal can be done toward get- ting good buildings erected on the new grounds.

CORKERS An Irish evangelist always addres- sed his learers as "dear but he came to grief, when, addressing an audience in Ireland, he called them "dear Cork souls." It is understood that the Armour Company 01 Chicago, are to estab- lish a branch of their meat packing lets and useless body. The audacity and hypocrisy of their action is, manifest, firstly, because of their- whining plea, that the Finance "Bill is of such a revolution- ary and Socialistic character, that no right to pass it -with- out a direct mandate from the peo- ple- An-d yet their action m reject- ing the; same is "out-Hcroding Her- od" in their revolutionary bjt the British House of Commons.

That this principle has been an ac-; one and never challenged, hitb.-; -erto, even from the earliest times, is one of the. remarkable phases of the present crisis. Some of the medieval pn-cedtints are rather startling, and even Hallam, no friend of 'democracy, thinks it necessary to record the fact that "it is even said by the Court of Kind's Bench in the year-book of Ed- ward IV., that a grant of money hy tin.: Commons would be binding with- out the assent of the Lords." Secondly, the claim that the Gov- ernment has no mandate is a piece of the. most absurd clap-trap that has ever been made to do service for ar- gument, of the many foolish positions taken by this unreasoning and un- representative chamber of horrors. As the Winnipeg Free Press truly ob- serves present Liberal Gov- ernment has a ma'jority in the House of Commons, which is one of the greatest on record. On the third i reading of the Lloyd-George Finance j Bill the-division stood to 1-19, a majority of 230. Yet the leader of the Opposition says the Government lias no mandate to pass that Bill. It would; be'interesting to know what the British electorate gave Government which it .put into of- fice with such a majority." Wtrcn the late Balfour Government enacted class legislation in the in- terests of Denominational schools whon they railroaded through She 'Commons a Brewers' Endowment Bill, on a. South African War major- ity and when they granted class leg- islation in the isitcrcsts of the Rand Mine.Owners in South Africa, grant- lag them power to import Chinese i dire effects of this system is well il- lustrated by the United States Sen- ate. But for the existence of the Am- j erican Second Chamber, the Great j Republic would have been spared all the horrors of the Civil War, with its holocaust, of nearly lives land its loss of. of treasure. Many are. the' iman- jcial, administrative and economic, which will arise as the result of the present unprecedented situation, which will become more clearly apparent as REVERSED "Times has ccrtVy oh- served an octegenarian darky in Ala- bama.
