Robert's Veracity (I'iuelier Creek Echo) "When went into the contest li -Macdonald wo did not go apoiogizinj. for reciprocity. 1 had occasion to saj In Montreal a short time before thai election that there was no honest sell' liment in favor of reciprocity in West- ern Canada." Hardly necessary to plain that the above is from Bob Rog- ers. H is aboiit on a par, in point of veracity, with that gentleman's claim to have settled the coal strike a year ago. Expectation TODAY the ratepayers of ihe cltj have been masters of the situa tion. The preliminary skir mishes were over on Saturday, and the" battle has been centred round the polling-booths. Whatever the results may be the die has been cast, and by the decisions of the majority the citi- zens will have to stand. Whatever thc personnel of She ne'w council, the ratepayers must re mem- ber their pre-election pledges, and watch carefully that these are carried out. In this matter there is one thing in which the various candidates have been unanimous. Jt is on the most vital question with which thc citizens of Lethbridge are at the present con- cerned. This ia the industrial policy. It has been clearly defined, and on whomsoever elected, the responsibility rests of placing the city on the foot- Ing it should fittingly occupy. The present year has been one of big advertisement for Lethbridge, and it is up to the men of the new council to see that every ounce of the advan- tage derived is turned into full ac- count. We have had the promise, and will await the fulfilment. So far as the campaign has been conducted by the different candidates Well Rather (Grain Growers Guide) Premier iiorden has announced his intention of appointing six additional Seators to represent the prairie pro- vinces. If the new Senators are to be real representatives, those from Sas- katchewan and Alberta at least should be men who are in favor o freer trade and wider markets. Wil the premier appoint such men, 01 will the honors and the salaries go to defeated candidates for the Commons and party heelers? t has been devoid of any acrimony, JT any personalities. The prospective nembers of the new council have been courteous and fair to one another. This augurs one satisfaction, that bose elected will pull together in one uterest, that of the city of Leth- iridge. In this expectation there is t least one reason for gratification. Ve can only trust that the men best itted for carrying out the industrial irogram will he elected. N The Market Question O MATTER who may be elected siclered u failure, today to carry on the adminis- tration of the city for the next they will have to consider tne demand for a lociil market to vide ;in avenue through which pro- the farmers in the surrounding district t'iin dispose of their produce, and through which the consumers can bo assured of a supply oi fresh food stuffs at all times of the year. market question has received a great deal of consideration during the past 'year, and it appears as if the time, for -action has arrived. That a market is ,1 necessity is con- ceded. The demand that the farm take up mixed farming makes it ne- cessary from their point of view. The increasing cost of living results in fi similar demand from the consumers. In considering" the question, how- ever, the council will have to take Why it should be so one can hardly understand, hut nevertheless the fact remains. It would appear that if a market is cognizance of the success or failure of such institutions in other 'western cities. There is plainly a difference between the east and the west in this particular. In Calgary, with over. population, the market is con-' established in Lethbridge (hero would have to be arrangements made for commission house in conjunction With irrigated land all through th immediate vicinity of the city, it i likely that the amount of produc brought to the market after the inst ttttion had become established be greater lhari the local deman would warrant. What to do with th surplus would be the question. If a commission house in charge o a wide-a'wafce market master wer made a the market scheme, i would be possible to find a market in the mining camps to the -west when ail such produce is shipped in from points. The demand wou be enormous. Prices wquld.be good and It would appear as if the farmers would then lose little time in arnmg ing to supply just what the marke required. But at the present time, purely local market would likely dit the natural death of the Calgary in stitution. Shake Off All Apathy r HETIIER commission form of government will be installed in Lelhbridye, in the year .1.1 is difficult at this moment to say. A few hours will show whether this is to bo or not. Rut whatever the the lilnh of new coun- cil should mean the uwakenin: iy of a new interest amongst tho ratepayers in civic doings. I.el nc taken seriously to heart by one and all. livery ratepayer should make it his business to attend the meetings of the council which we trust in every case will lie open to tho public. The interest shown in the doings of the council will be of much service m stirring its members to a recognition of the duties expected from them. make an effort to vote on the same all cases. If these courses are follow- ed there will be a saving of any grumblings and dissatisfaction dis cussed at street corners. Ratepayers' associations "shouid not bette t 1 now in this apathetic body of ratepayers must necessarily mean, in some degree, an apathetic council. Interest ta'ken means encouragement given, and this is a duty .which the ratepayers owe to those whom they have elected to administer their affairs. the money bylaws, for local im- provements submitted, be carefully considered, and let every ratepayer! be allowed to die, and to be resurrect, ed only at election time, no matter what the nature of the election ma1 eventually be. Let them at all times bn live institutions, thoroughly organ- ized, and meeting at stated periodical intervals to discuss matters which are brought before the ratepayers. It is too evident that whatever dis- satisfaction has been lately expresses] is due in a very great measure to the ratepayers. There must respect be a turn for the It is up to the people, and the present time calls for leaders among them to lake a lively part in organization and in fostcrlns that in- .terest in civic affairs which if much to be desired. May Ihc of the council of mean the awak- ening of tile interest of !hc ratepay. ers. In this at all events there will be sreat gain. 1 Let the People Rule l-Macleod Advertiser.) The point insisted on with most em- phasis by the Minister of Municipalit- ies, in discussing the new Rural Muni, clpalities Act. is that the matter of ex- penditure and taxes is entirely depend- ent on the people of the themselves. It is for them to decide how much money they shall spend, If any, and the rate of taxation, not'in any case to exceed ten mills, is de- pendent solely on that expenditure. If a new road is to be made, a cul- vert put in, or any other public im- provement decided on, the cost is easily ascertainahle. The government will supply expert help, if aslted for, and the ratepayers %vill know in ad 'Vance exactly hoW much it is going to cost them in the line ;of taxes. The notion that the act is an unholj scheme on the part of a debt-ridden government to unload its responsibll- ties and expenditures upon the ,peo- pie of the municipalities is abo'u't as far from the mark as could possibly he imagined. The new system of rural municipal- ities will be a distinct aid .to local self- government, and a benefit to such dis- tricts as vote to organize, but no dis- trict need so organize unless it wants to. There is no compulsion about it. been turned off. the gentleman would have been roughly handled. One sue.. Kested pulling him under a tap, others more drastic measures.

Imperial Nationality (Montreal Witness.) Much has been written and spoken, ioth In this country and In the Moth- r Country, not to mention the other Overseas Dominions of Great Britain, 11 the subject of Imperial Nationality, eem impossible for the great majority y thc differences of view entertained y those, who have dealt with it. It cem impoihle for the great majority f those who talk glibly about Imper- ialism, to realize that thd citizens of the self-governing dominions can cher- ish enduring loyalty to the Empire as a whole with ardent patriotism to- wards the particular dominion in which they live. The two ideas do iiot appear'reconcilable to" the usual imperialistic advocate, such as w.e have in this conutry. It is because they cannot reconcile these, two Ideas that the leaders of Conservatism in Canada claim to be the true imperialists in this country.- The attitude they adopt is that the in. terests of the Dominion must always be subordinate to those of the Em- pire, that Cauadianism must efface it- self in the presence of imperialism.

Origin of Ancient Phrase During the last of the century in England corruption was notorious. Jack Robinson, the secretary of the treasury, was known to use both pat ronage and money to carry out his corrupt ministerial policy. Sheridan declared that a member of the house was employed to corrupt everybody in order to secure votes. Amid intense excitement voices ca eel out: "Name him or withdraw." Sheridan was in a predicament but his ready -wit aidsd him. he an- s'wered, "it would be an unpleasant and invidious thing to name the per- son and therefore I shall not do it. lint don't suppose there would be any difficulty in naming him; I could do it, sir, as quid; as you could say Mack Sunday Her- ald. It is all over but the cheers. Whatever may he the fate of Mr. McCambly at thc polls loday, see to it that his industrial policy does not die. It is a good one. The 'west may not yet be ready for great industrial development in the opinion of eastern manufacturers, but the west is providing the largest 'mar- ket the average eastern manufactur- ers has.
