Thai Cauudiiins can ticcomplisU honors is a great gratification, but practically new country Uke the Canadmn west can f liter into coinpcliltoii.Vith the world, and emerge, victorious; should point to'a'great future in agricul- tural pursuits. That we are, in AVcsteru already second to none has been Although Alberta did not carry off any of the honors, we are glad that Western .Cfliuida succeed- doing'so.' "Alberla is the youngest of ;ahy'6f the western provinces, and has showri her superioriiy along other lines, in I competition wilh Ihe world. As farmers in Uiis province eDgflgc {more extensively in live slock farming, il is" reasonable to Hope j that they will distinguish themselves. Alberta has the good for- liihe to possess the inost progressive Minister of Agriculture in (he whole of Canada, and the height of Ms ambition is to stimu- late Uie.'raising of .live slock. ..In doing lltis he has commenced in Ihe right, way; namely, hy interesting Ihe youlh of the province in the feeding of good live stock: When Alberla age of Manitoba not.only hope for, but expect, honors such as some of the oilier .provinces have gained. The farnier who elierislies a love for his live slock, and'con- cenlrales Iiis eiicrgies'on tiie betterment of Iheir breeding, is one who reflects a character worlh more to himself and to his coun- try than can be U'R..

Solicitor General Jleiglich spoke for-over two hours at Por- tage Ur Prairie recently and never once referred to free agricul- tural implements. :The limes have certainly changed for CITIES LIKE PRACTICAL MEN. LIKE our own Arthur Reid, the commissioner of public utili- ties, in Calgary. Mr. Graves was elected by a large majority. And Mr. Graves, like Mr. Reid, served his apprenticeship as a macliinisl. He worked in the C. P. R. shops before being elect- ed as commissioner. The Herald believes tliat the success of Mr. Craves in handling (he utilities of Calgary was in a large measure due to the fact Ihat he understands machinery and knows when the men under him are giving the.city a fair deal, not only in Ihe amount of work done, but also in the caring for and handling of the expensive machinery. Mr..Graves has been hampered to some extent by a board of aldermen, wilh ward interests to serve, but Mr. Reid will have no such handicap, and the Herald is great- ly mistaken in its estimate of the man if Arthur Reid does nol make the utilities of this city count not only for good service, bul also make them pay their way. TO SIT ON THE SAFETY VALVE. THE PROPOSAL thai Hie business men's organization which stood sponsor for the'successful: ticket in Urn municipal election be maintained as a permanent force for the purpose: of keeping an eye on Hie board of commissioners, is a most worthy one and the Herald hopes it will be..ac.W on. It is .possible that oilier business men wouldjbe willing to join forces now and con- and'Uiorouglily r'eprcsenlaUve body keep lab on the doingc ofthe [.commissioners and see to it'Ihat pre-election promises arc carried out ib'lhc letter. An organiza- tion of Ihis character would be bound to have a most.salutary cifccl and would-be especially valuable in watching the expendi- ture wilh a view to a constant reminder that'economy was the main plank iii the platform of the successful candidates. existence of such an organization would in no w'ay con- slilule a reflection on the commissioners. In fact the commis- they look the right viewpoint, would welcome it as a bijl help in solving problems at times which require many coun- sellors to properly guage public opinion and also lo give adv.icc'rt'fleclmg Ihe sentiment of Ihe large taxpayers in Ihe city hoard'of commissioners would know il all, no matter how capable they might and for that reason it is all the more lo Ix; desired thai there be some central organization to which the nieh.charged wilh heavy responsibility could'look to for advice The business men, in turn, would have at a minute's notice an organization which could put recall if there was .any tendency on Hie part of. the commissioners lo deviate from the strict path of public duty. By all means let us have the business men's organization a; H permanent feature of our civic ALBERTA AND THE CHICAGO STOCK SHOW. A has distinguished herself al foreign agricuiiura shows; ..Western Canada has- done. likewise af Canadiai shows; Alberla lias distinguished herself al Western Canada exhibitions, and local farmers have fakcn their share of prize. nl provincial fairs. AgricuUurisis in this 'locality have therefore four good reasons lo be proiid. Probably the greatest signifi cance is attached lo the winnings of Western Canadians at th International Live Slock Exhibition in Chicago, for Hie reason that competition in this, the greatest of all live slock shows, on a-hroader scale. Tht very cream 'of the best animals that is possible lo produce, gamier al this sh6w !o compete for work honors, breeders who through Ihc employment of the hcst nielli oils of breeding and feeding being safe in Iheir assumplton tha whatever they have won In the way of honor, has Irccn gaincc .only .after their slock has been subjected, to the most rigid com 'parispns with the best thai breathes. Stockmen were unanimou piv their opinion that never before in Ihe history of live sloe' were three such Clydcsdale'niarcs as were shown by an exhibilo from British Columbia, ever seen, even in Scotland, the horn ,of the Clyde. Cfydcsdales were the fcafure'pf the show, an horses from' "SVcstern Canada atlruclcd the altcnlion of th world's bcsl .stockmen. Another, .popular win was lhal of Hi .Canadian, J. D.'
