JORDAN, Sapt.  this district will be populated by s great agricultural community and fjethbridge must impress him as the best market-place in the south country. We must keep that idea ever before us. BROAD-MINDED PEOPLE. The Calgary Albertan commends the broad-minded spirit of the* electors of Raymond in electing a non-Mormon as Mayor of that thriving town. It is characteristic of the Mormon people to treat all creeds on the same basis in matters of this nature. Raymond, which has a very small Gentile population, not only elected a Gentile Mayor. Dr, Rivers, but a Gentile councillor, R. H. McDuffve. Cards ton has on several occusious elected Gentiles to its council and if we remember rightly, the town of Magrath has at least one Gentile councillor, if not more. It is clear that President Roosevelt is determined to quit the presidency job. Us a pity for the United States could stand a man of Roose-volt's forcefulness, integrity and aggressiveness for years to come. It is seldom our American neighbors have a President who is so invaria- *� bly anxious to give the public a square deal. Old-Time Frying Pin ( then can wo tackle each In its own projwr way. and effect cures. When one is mistaken for the other and treated the wrong way the result is only further trouble.

Indecision A FEARLESS GOVERNMENT. Those who follow the actions of the AlbcrU government must be impressed with the iearlcssness of the Premier and his colleagues. In their eagerness to serve the people the members of this government arc offending some of the powerful corporations. "That is what they arc there for" some person may say. True enough, but very few governments arc heroic enough to act in a manner offensive to the men at the .'j head ot the railroads and telephone corporations. - They may toll on the stump what they intend to do, but when it comes to action the situation is completely changed. Not so, however, with the government of this province. It started a telephone system in opj>ohition to an established and powerful corporation and today that company is conduct-1 iug a secret campaign against the government in this province. But the government are able to point to 500 miles of telephone system owned IIIinois� Indiana.

He should be able to feel the public pulse and keep the body political in good condition.

The government argues in favor of the centralisation of the work at Cat-gary and Edmonton on account of economy. Ecouomy is all very well but the people want good and prompt service more than anything else and are willing to pay for it if necessary.
