California, Kan- sas, Iowa and other states in the American Union and in the city of Spokane. Wash. I offer the following brief remarks for whatever they may be worth.

We live in a more liberal at- mosphere and must learn to adapt ourselves to the same and recognize that the closing of the post offices on the Sunday, as contemplated by the secretary of the Moral Reform Lea- gue is calculated to work a great in- cdnvenience, if not an injustice upon the community at large, without ma- terially benefitting anybody else. At present, the very best people in society, church people included, util- ize the advantages of the Sunday pos- tal service and think no wrong is done thereby. Those who conscien- tiously feel that they personally can- not do so are not obliged to violate their conscience. But it is decidedly unfair to expect that all others' shall subscribe to so narrow a creed. Be- cause where there is no one who would feel that way there are ninety and nine who see no wrong in it, and it is safe to assert that if the matter were put to a referendum, which in i fairness it ought to be, an overwhelm- Sing majority -would support a ccn- i tinuaiiop, of the present convenience i with possibly a demand for an exten- j sion of the same. I We are frequently reminded of the old Latin saying, vox populi. vox Die, "the voice of the utODle is the voice and shad have to be governed by this form of Divine Gov- ernment, as that "which is best cal- culated to advance the interests of the community. In view of the facts the action of the Lethbridge Board of Trade, at its recent meeting, in resisting these demands of the secretary of the Mor- al Reform League, too ride- rough shod over our established institutions will meet with the general approba- tion of the best people of all shades of politics, whether they are inside the church or men on the street.

Returning to the present movement for a change in this city I make the following suggestion, and I must say, if I say it myself, that it is a good one Let a committee be appointed to consist of twelve or sixteen men, not necessarily aldermen of the city but picked from all walks of city life, men whose deliberations would in- spire confidence. Let them collect all the information possible and go thor- oughly into the matter and let them make a recommendation to be sub- mitted to the people suggesting what amendments to the-present city char-j ter are required and" just what! change would best meet the needs of this city.

GAL.BRAITH Editor Lethbridge Daily Herald Galbraith, at the meeting oa Saturday night, made a lew re- j marks about what he had done for j the moral welfare of the city. Most of the people know what he did. He simply made a mess of the morals of the city. It is to be sincerely hoped for thc moral welfare oi the city j that thc city council will tell Dr. Galbraith and hi.s bunch of moral rc- j formers to go away back and sit and pride themselves that all they have done in other cities is to cause trouble. Leave thc moral wel- fare in the hands of the. Chief-of Po- lice, who has done more for the mor- al welfare of the city of Lethbridge than all the moral reformers have done or will ever do. Thanking you for the insertion of this letter, I re- main, Yours truly, JAMES THOMPSON. The postmaster asks the public to note' the following in connection with Christmas mailing. 1st.
