The conditions In the two cities may bo said to 'be not very different, and the fact that the i library has appealed to the public in i Calgary may be regarded as a sufllc- 1 lent reason for having one instituted in Lethbridge as soon as possible. We read that books were loaned during the month of November, and "what is more interesting is that there has been a, marked increase In the use of technical, wonts. The librarian puts this down as very large- ly due to the influence of tlm evening technical classes. This 'serves to show that a public library is a neces- sary adjunct to these establishments, and comes within their policy. The call on useful literature, carry- ing with it knowledge for the people, serves to refute arguments that are sometimes raised against the. institu- tion of public libraries, principally used by tljoso who are purely seekers, after fiction. The first aim of an institution, such as a lib- rary, is to bring" within the reach of the masses text hooks on useful knowledge and information which are not easy for everyone to possess. The present instance shows they are ap- preciated. So far as we can remember, the library question was only referred to particularly by Dr. Levering, alder- mau-elect, during the municipal cam- paign just over. It does hot follow by this 'that the remaining members of the ne'wly-elected council are against the project. 'It has been de- manded by the people, and the elect- ed aldermen -'expressed their deter- mination to .carry out the public wishes. having made a special point of it, -the responsibility for giv- ing Lethbridse a -much 'wanted insti- tution rests in a measure, an the Doc- tor. We have no doubt that in this !ie will be supported -unanimously by his fellow, members of the civic coun- cil, and we trust to. soon set: the scheme .realized. Grain, via- the Panama Canal TUB PANAMA CANAL, is regard- ed as a coming boon to western farmers in the" matter of easing the congestion In the shipment of grain, and in the alleviation of freight charges. There has been some appre- hension expressed with regard to cli- matic Influences on wheat, and in this respect the opinion of G. T. Somers, president of the Canada Grain Com- pany, a concern which does a large export business, will he reassuring. Writing In the Monetary Times, Jlr. Somers' says that' he sees no good reason for anticipating that the Pan- ama Canal will not he a good route for the shipment of wheat from Western Canada to Atlantic ports. Given normal conditions ships should pass through in seven or eight hours, dependent upon the number moving, but in any event the maximum delay Would not be over ten hours. The temperature and the humidity of the Panama. Canal, he further re- marks, should not be much greater than on the sea at both ends. There would not be, owing to tlm short In-j terval of extreme heat and the coo! i night winds, such change In tempera- ture as to "sweat" wheat. The carg would he gradually prepared for an; serious change in passing through th' warm Japan current on the Pacifii side to the port of Panama for sev eral days, and through the Gul Stream after leaving the port o Colon. Wheat and flour are quoted as being safely transported for years from th states of Oregon' and Washington round Cape Horn to European ports a much longer route with climatic conditions not very different fron those in the journey through the Can al. So far as the opinion of an expert may he recognized, the above remarks are satisfactory, Mr. Somerst how ever, concludes with the following rider which will be worthy of attention !thc time Is ripe for adopting the new route: "Unless wheat is in good condition, it is liable to damage under a linos I any circumstances when confined for a long period in bins, cars or ships If wheat is wet or tough it should be prepared for shipment by dryers In the same manner that corn and other grain is being prepared for shipment from the Gulf ports of the United States to -Mexico and the tropics." Commendable Legislation of a drastic, and by no means too severe a nature, lias just been enacted in Great Britain dealing with what is known "ns the white slave traffic. In making provision whereby violators of the law are liable to receive the lash, in addition to a term of Imprisonment punishment has been devised which Is fitting In its relation to ihe crime. There is nothing .more ignominious or loathesome amongst the vices bl humanity than the .practice-of certain of its members of .supporting .them- pelves on the illicit gains- of fallen women. To consider them within the pale of hunjanity isf an in'juatice to the word, awarding.them-the pun- ishment fit j for the the law rightly- regards ,the 'estimation in which Corporal. -iMinishment'Vof a-, severe nature'is the deterrent'for a vice which has its being in the worst fo-rm of moral cowardice, The mere an- nouncement of the new act has been sufficient to cause such a panic in the minds of offenders, that numhers OL them are scattering pell-mell to sav themselves from its visitation. It ap- pears at last that society has found some means for ridding itself of plague spots in Its midst. The powers placed in the hands of the police of arresting on suspicion without warrants may appear large, but, .considering the .nature of .the offence and its tendency to become widespread, no one can justly accuse them of being, arbitrary. It would he well that tiie present law should be placed in the statute books of every nation, and that authorities should unite in a.crusade for the suppression of times. It ,fs-. not a' crime confined to any particular its-agents arc at almost every centre.

All the courts in Canada have sus- tained the legislature In the action taken by the Royal Hank. It is now up to Privy Council tho re- sult of other cases In which tho peo- ple 'were pitted against corporations leaves just a slight feeling of appre- hension. Singing "God Save the King" anci "Rule Britannia" is getting to be quite a common pastime m the House of Commons. Every little movement has a meaning nil its own, The fight at Ottawa over tho naval policy is a light for a truly imperial policy ivliioh, has the approval of tho great admiral, Lord Charles Hores- (lie policy doulnued to sooth tho Quebec Nationalists. Uratmm poultry show was apparent- ly a record If those shows only encourage farmers to go I'1 more extensively for poultry raining they should Ynnk for generous assistance from the government. Uss than three -years ago George E. Foster moved n resolution favoring tho construction of a Canadian navy nnd supported it 'with an eloquent speech. Now watch him make a speech claiming- that the idea of a Canadian navy .is all wrong and the only proper caper is to mako a direct contribution, changed while you wait to meet the exigencies of the noment, said exigencies being created by an alliance with the Nationalists. BETWIXT AND BETWEEN Well, {lie elections are over. The shouting and the tumiilt dies. There are has-beens and ncver-wases. Then again there are those that are. Those that are happen to be .in light for the time being, and the now crop of legislators will be watched with more than ordinary Interest. The big jolt of the elections was the vote polled by the ex-dictator of the police force. Joe got to a good 'start, and the number of wise ones who backed him with their cold cash now claim they were flagged at he wrong uuarter by the closing of the polls at five. That, ho'wever, was only one of the exigencies of the election, and .not smooth politics as has been charged. Nothing to be dis- TUiuled about though, and now the (spiring mayor can go to his fruit 'arm in B. C. and enjoy himself, know- ing that he gave the best of them a canter for" their currency, and inci- dentally ousted his one-time boss from he-presidency. Lemons do notfgrow n British Columbia either. We have remarked before that the leople of this fair city got .it in the neck good and proper on the over- head bridge deal, and now it looks as If the soulless corporation intended rubbing It in. Sparks were Hying over on the north .side the other night when they found that the C. P. It. were trying to force (lie city to lay Its tracks through -1000 feet" of prac- tically uninhabited territory to serve the same people as are served so well now. It looks like a great big bluff on the part-of the C. P. to .get the ratepayers to pay half the cost of a subway, and with the rotten old bridge hanging like, an axe necks, we might just about as well decide to submit gracefully and divvy up. We'll have to come through, in the long run anyway. Bob Sage.was left at home the otfier day. Evidently the people of Leth- brldge do not care for a Solomon in all his glory en the Ifl3 council.

Just as u sidelight on the recent election Mayor-elect Hardle is rather dubious whether he Is a true and loyal subject of His Majesty King George, or.iwhether he might qualify as a son of -Uncle Sam. It had the above gen- tleman worried for a few days during tlic election too. It seems that the mayor-elect land- ed on the shores of America, as did one Christopher Cclumhus, when lie was of the tender age of eighteen, more or less. At any rate he had not reached the age when he could proud- ly cast his first ballot. His father settled in that land of Sam McGee fame, Tennessee, and for some time his son resided with him. Then he received the call to Sunnj Southern Alberta, and obeyed. Now the question is: "Did he 01 did he not lose his British nationality when his parents settled in the Ueing a minor at the time, it is naturally interred that he auto, maticaliy became an American citr zen by reason of his father taking HE his residence in Uncle Sam's wide do mains. Since coming to Canada lie has never thought it io tak out his naturalization papers, and it is a nice question whether Lethbridge does not boast this year of a Yankee mayor in very truth. However, lie ays he likes the Yankees, and Leth- fridge is open to receive them' in unches. tionalists, on 'the 'other, and after three months of hesitation and delay, Mr, Bordeu' has evolved a navy scheme. We 'cannot call It a policy. It is a mere political evasion of Canada's duty as a self- reliant and self-governing Dominion. It is the subterfuge of a politician seeking to .evade, the. responsibility of formulating a permanent policy wor- thy of a great Dominion and attempt- ing to discharge his duty by a mere entry in the national ledger and the posting of a cheque to the government of the United country which does not need the which is maintaining aa overwhelm- ing preponderance ill sea supremacy! and withal, is paying off her nationat! debt at the rate of thirty million dol-, lars a year. It is the contribution of what Brit- ain needs least of thej withholding of what Britain needs most of It is the meanestjj 'way to discharge a great national ob ligatfon. It is, so far as Canada concerned, a political contribution de signed to meet a political emergenc; in the Borden cahinat.
