An Impudent Proposal rp HE QUINTESSENCE of gall has � J_ l)oen discovered. It is kept on tap in tile office of the Calgary Herald and drawn on wlien somettiing real nervy is required. The latest turn of the tap was in connection witli the Borden excuse for a, naval policy. 'The Herald resents the suggestion tint the Ltborals should presume to niticlze the handout proposals and advocates the closure. Tliis from a paper that went into hysterics of joy over the obstruction tactics of the Tories 'when the reciprocity pact "�"as under discussion. Then it was a case of "sic 'em towser.'" Now it is the muzzle. The Calgary Herald has nerve all right. The only trouble with the Calgary Herald's nerve, however, is that the public are wise to the large proportion of gall. The Proposed Creamery HE PROPOSED CREAMERY for Lethbridge is an enterprise � which .requires much encouragement. It caters for a long-deslTed �want on the part of the public, and, �likewise, is an incentive to mixed-farming in the district. The milk (juestion,- apart from anything else, la an important one. and the gnarantco of-a supply free from specific impurities is a measure of immense hygienic value. . The deilverj- of pasteurized milk ; meets with up-to-dnte refiulremehts. But, wholesome as is the project, this Bhould not be entirely depended on 'for ensuring the purity of the article. The first supply is of the most importance, for it has been demonstrated that pasteurization is not entirely a ^teguard, tor what is known as sourness in milk might still be present though undetecteid by taste. In this there is a'/ccHaitr degree of danger. But taking it that the concern will be'fully aware of all the sources of its supply,- it is reasonable to inter that it will. Id ita own interest, make a special point that the inllk supplied cotnes not only from healthy sur-rouijdinss! but from healthy cow's, in doing this it will ensure the ccnfldence oX the public and success in this direction may he well assuxed. At .111'events the purity of milk will be better ensured to the public by a company such as the creamery, than under any indiscriminate system of supplj-. Focusing it as it 'were is so much to.the benefll of the consumer. ' The 191 THE DYING HOURS ot the 1912 council -will be different from those of the 1911 body in that there will be no thousands of dollars of contracts to let. It is^well. Lett)-bridge should make up Its' mih^ to go in for a year, or two If necessary, cf retrenchment In civic expenditure. There should be a stop in improve-TOcnts and let the city grow up to what has already been Installed. The only improvements for the next two years should be the giving of .modern conveniences in the form of sewers and water and light to any people within the city wlio do not now enjoy thera. Lethbridge has made remark-ublo progress in instituting modern conditions and tn so far as frills are concerned Is av-'a-v ahead of many 2 Policy cities twice and three limes as large. We can well afford to give the ratepayers relief for a time and allow the city to growjJp_ to 'what we now have. The Herald would suggest that one wiy. ol- bringtng about that growth would' be to devote the greater part of special expenditure this year to carrying out .some- such industrial �policy as has been-outlined by Alderman-elect McCambly, and see it it is pot possible to attract some of the capital seeKlng an outlet in Western Canada to Leihbridge. The Herald firmly believes that the ratepayers would justify the council in taking every reasonable step to bring industries here. It would be well therefore to change the emphasis for a year or. two and make a real live effort to get a few industries to locate here. Like Oliver Twist Op ALL THE manufacturing concerns in Canada, there is none more Importunate in its de-Jiiauds tor greater protection than those engaged in the woollen Industry. A number of manufacturers of the eommodlly from' Quebec and Ontario have been in Ottawa for the past few days. Impressing on the Govornment. the need ot protecting them froan out^ Bide competition. The present desire is fostered by the fear that there might possibly be jrroposals made for falsing the nrltish preference, and tlie opportunity is used for seizing time by the forelock, and entering an early protest against any such remedial change. In thla respect the woollen manufacturers ai-e entitled to the least ConsiSeratlori, for the simple reason that in a climate such as ours woollen goods are a necessity, and any .leglBlation ' which tended to make tliem .denrflr ..B'ould he a great hardship on the poorer classes. Already tUo duly on these goods Impoviod from droat Britain, and amounting to an average of nearly 'ao per cent., Ig high enough.

It is a trihuto to the sterling worth of a big man. The effort of the western Conservative newspapers to arouse some show-lug of enthusiasm for the thirty-five million contribution is not meeting with any pronounced success. The Edmonton Irish Association is holding a debate when the finestion of woman suffrage will be discussed. Have they already disposed of the Home Rule bill? President Taft has taken the only dignified course in deciding not to name the successor to the late White-law Reld. That appointment morally belongs to President-elect Wilson. Before iudulging in captious criticism of the price of Lethbridge bonds compared -with Saskatoon or Moose Jaw it would be well to remember that those cities are paying five per cent, while Lethbridgo la paying four and one-half per cent,  Whitehiw Rei diiiloinnilc service. l!o whs ji prince among his follows, Sllntn Clatis will hold opwi house ill Lethbridgo on Doc. iT.lh.

London, Ting., is I he scene of one ot the greatest peace eonfereuces the world ever knew. Asul it is not long ago that reports were being sent out that the suffragettes were making war on tbe British premier right at the capital. The people of Loihliriiige have been raising their voices in protest against the high cost of butter for a long time. Let them see to'it that they patronize the new creamery when it starts business.

Dove Returned to Ark (Spokane Review) . The .Vobel prize .for peace could not be awarded this year;: Italy was fighting Turkey, Mexico was fighting rebels within. Turkey was forced into war with the Balkan allies, and Theodore Roosevelt raised the Progressive standard of revolt against Republican bosses and political machines. Nowhere iiythe civilized world could the dove of peace find a quiet spot. ^ A Referendum on the Navy (Grain Gro^wers Guide) The government's naval policy is now before the people of Canada, and before the week is over there will undoiibtedly .be , a counter proposal from the opposition. The .Tmount of the actual mo.ney in the two proposals will probably be about the same. It seems tlierefore definitely settled that the people of Canada are to be taxed ?3a,000,000 by a parliament that has no mandate from the people for any naval expenditure whatever. Much as many people may deplore a naval expenditure In this day ot civilization the-re is now no alternative for the Canadian people. But there are possibilities in the present  situation etiualiy as serious as the expenditure.  '", ; Thereis a possibility of Uie p^pplei being consulted In a general election with the issue of cctmter naval proposals. Such an event will be a catastrophe and should be avoided. And it oan';,be avoided, Mr. Boi:(Jen . can settle the naval question by cotiati-tutional methods to the general sat-is6iction of'the Canadian people without endangering his government and without the demoralizing effect of a general election. It can he dorie by taking a referendum vote by which every citizen can declare whether ho favors either of tihe naval proposals or whether he is opposed to any navy By this means and by no other means can the taxpayers of Canada have a voice in a question which involves a ta.v of five dollars upon each man, woman and child in the nation. If Mr. Borden will rise to the occasion he will place himself in an envln.ble position among the statesmen of the British Empire and will be the first to allow the people a voice In the expenditure of their own money.

(Pincher Creek Echo) "A Smashing Blow at Reciprocity," is how the Winnipeg Telegram describes the election of .Toseph Glenn (Conservative) in the Qu'Appelle bye-election last week. Fact of the matter is the Qu'Appelle seat has always been Conservative, Hon. F. W. G. Haiiltaln carrying It lust election by a majority of 47. Glenn's majority was a meagre 15. With the Conservative majority thus cut down by tw-o-thirds, we would like to ktiow where the "smashing blow" comes in. The shoe is on the other foot. Imposed on the imported articles. It is entirely due to thetn that woollen goods remain at their present prices, working Incalculable harm on those who can leaat afford to purchaso are as much necessities as articles ot daily consumption. The sympathies of ^ the people cannot go out to an Industry which has had the original protection allowed it gradually increaaeU, and are still clamoring for inore, , A Bpecloiia plfca for the demand of the manufacturers is that they are handicapped by th^ large Importation j of what la known as "shoddy."
