Vote for the men you ciin rely upon to do what is right. If you follow that course you will not make a mistake. THE WINNIPEG WHINER. The Winnipeg Tri^bunc again proves its riijlit to rank as tho most n.ir-row minded and "idiotic i)aper in th..' Wo.s't. It i.s .so bitterly opposod to Litjcral governments, premiers und nlFicials that it is ready to take ii fling nt tliem on every possiblo nc-casiou and usually without th.i slightest ground whatever. The other day It devoted ha\i p. column to Hon. Walter .Scovt, premier 01" Saskatchewan and Mackenzi..-King, deput.v minister of labor. It termed them 'Crawlers' because they cfossomoricjin citizen, in an effort ti siHtle the coal strike, hare, in ordei* that tiie people of Saskatchowan should not face the possibility of freezing to death this winter. Messrs. Scott and King did perfect-ly right. If they had not iuterview-ed Mr. MHchell.( the atrike would have been still unsettled and tho fata of Saskatchewan would have l�..>n sealed. The solution resU?d with Mr. Mitchell, American citizen that he is The li'Unmo wouUI haw nuiih pn-ferre*V. Sor political purposes, to have hod Mr. Scoft ai>d Mr. Kiiiij rwiK-iin on this side of tluj lin'?, !g and Mr. Scott for not going to Mr. Mitchell. Tlie Tribune, is tho worst Crawk'r' in Canadian joui-naVisini, and its on\y idol is its proprit�tor, Rol>t. L. Hichardson, v-lio is u shuttered idol of ages lon,9 l>ast. The .strike would never have 'Jccn .settled had it n^l Uivh for'the forts of Mr, Scott and Mr. King, and t)Kany officials and they consenteany and the men are to 1)0 complimimted upon tho oitt'itude ; they assunv&l during tho last week. . Both sides made .sacrifice that should bo appreciated by the poopla. Wo want no more striken. It is to l>e hoped in tha future differences between tho coHMmnyand its cmploy.js will be amicably adjusted. What al>ont all those street Eainos the city orderctl? They don't rwism to he very prominent on the strcwt.s. Doing things in a h�p hazard w�y isn't good policy. Somci of tho names g'iven the streets of this city are worse than Indian. A good would be to substitute numliered streets, nvoking Round St.. Pirst St. and so on. Oklahama may elect an Indian to the Unilv^ ^ States Senate. If wo are to rely upon what the "muck rakers" say. thorc are a lot of wood en Indians there now and a real live one might do good, Thorc are a nunrt>er of real good men running for Aldornion. TheiV" are four to elect and lie sure you pick the liest. Dr. ttalbw*th has sound idca� on municipal pnyUeinn and hia advooacy of astrong publicity campaign for Lcthbrrdge is one of the best feat  ures of his platfonu.

Thsj opening of a branch of tho Imperial Dank at Athabtisca Landins;, .vhich a fow years ago, was look^nl upon as an outpost of civ'iliaaiion, me�ins that this lai-ge financial i.i-stitution believes in a future for tho Peace River Country. Who knr)>vs but that Alborta will -be as thickly populated in that practically un -known country in ton or Kitech yoar.s as any other section within its boundaries. The Herald this week oub-lishos a highly interesting article or. tha Peace River country and furthor contributions will appear in futuro issues. The two new trustees, Me.ssrtt.
