Receipts for the month of January amounted to $5,-079.41, as against $5,423.00 during the month of December. The dally average for January was $163.85. During th'e month several of the cars w�re out of commission at two different times during snow storms, and this had some effect In keeping the earnings down. The third car has not been put on the blue line as yet, but It is understood that it will be in service shortly. T H. R. H. THE DUCHESS WILL HAVE TO UNDERGO VERY CRITICAL OPERATION Ottawa, Feb. 3.-It is learned here on good authority that there is .pTac-tically no hope-of their Royal Highnesses the Duke. and. Duchess of Con-caught returning to Canada from Ktagland next summer to complete the two-year term, of office for which his | Royal Highness was appointed. The illness of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Connaught will, It is said, necessitate a serious surgical operation in-England, and it is doubtful if she will be well enough for months to come to.again take any part in- public 'functions. , Under the circumstances it is expected that a" n$w Governor-General �will have* to be appointed. Asquith Pulled Through Bad (Continued from Iron*-page). THEY ARE WORSE THAN THE CHINAMEN DR. McQUEEN DENOUNCES WEALTH-GETTERS WHO LEAVE COUNTRY, ON ' BECOMING RICH . Edmonton, Feb. 2-Strong denunv, ciabion of selfishness and lack of moral sense of duty on'part of these Americans- who come Into Western Canada, refuse to become' British subjects, but make fortunes out of real estate and. return to spend them across the line, was heard from, Dr. D. O. McQueen, moderator of general assembly; preaching here today for the .first tyme since his1 recovery from appendicitis; 1 "A man who comes here and makes hundreds and thousands of dollars and goes across ithe line with'what I call his Ill-gotten gampi'-' he said,, "Is ten times worse'tjiatf Chinamen who send Ithelr mqney 'home to China, Lots of men re'fiuje to become British eubJeqts but ;>make all the unearned; increment they can out of western" Canada lands and .then spend the-money, at ;PacIflc' coaBt resorts.-' It is merely 'loavefe' iwhlch. brings many people to the west and they have no thougbit about helping to build a' nation-here, and In thedr lust after 'seeing', things[of life they do not scruple to take advantage of ignor-ance of others, *3?b-jfaany, a man in this.western land^it-woula be a blessing if God would sweep ievery' dollar out [of hi? hand and thrOw him back in lilie positipni'w'herehef started."

The Derry election came next with the return of the Nationalist candi date and the wresting of one of the Ulster seats from the Unionists. In their joy at putting the Unionist representation of Uulster in the' minor ity in parliament, the Liberals are now making the mistake of saying that Ulster Is swinging  around to ward Home Rule.1 Such is not the caso. The wobbler .who wins and loses electlong In Great Britain is unknown In Ireland, where-elections are lost or won at the'registration re vision ..sessions. The people of Pre-land, and  particularly /the people of Ulster, never change their'Jpolijtics, beting born either Nationalist or Unionists. The Unionists had a small majority on the register at 'Derry, and the reason they lost is that, there happened to be a greater-amount of emigration among- Unionists ^electors than among the Nationalists...'. ':* .;.. The Fighting"Minister Mr. Lloyd George oreated a further diversion on Friday night by. an Ihv portant speech at'the;; National Liberal Club, in which hePwas generally, credited with launching h^lo,ng;antioipat-ed land campaign; -It.' seems 'to-be-; a.; fact, however, 'that he merely- took' advantage of the. excitement" of the week, to endeavor to disabuse the .public mind of the belief that Premier Asquith was effectively keeping; Mr. loyd George and the land' campaign on a sidetrack, and- to announce again in somewhat flamboyant rhetoric that a land campaign, there, must and shall be. , : Altogether, the last parliamentary Wfek has been one of the most remarkable of recent yearB. t The government remains on top of the 'heap, despite the'.'abandonmeat of the Sran-chise bill. It is now patent that the movement for tbe enfranchisement of women has made enormous strides in the House of Commons, and if supported tactfully, women's suffrage, in some form or other, may become an actual fact in the lite of the present parliament. . ; A�qulth*s Clever Move I � ^ Mr. Asquith got out of ah awkward 'corner when he offered to .give any facility for th,e passage of the private ijiiombers' bill to legalize such enfranchisement' -but there/will be considerable' difficulty in drafting the TOoasureV&s opinion vary, greatly as rtd'1 what" woman suffrage really meansi the-;-offer oi the government to allot: time for/ the. discussion of a private hill'and .to treat it in every way as a fjrst class measure, without being. responsible for. its success, is a complete parliamentary innovation on the -institution of which women can heartily congratulate '. themselves. Time alone can tell how the scheme is likely to work,' hut, old parliamentary hands are. inclined to think it will give the cause of woman fjut-frage-a greater chance'of success;than -it ever had before,' always provided, that its too ardent female supporters outside the house do not' wreck -the prospect by their illegal judged, enthusiasm. > The tactics pursued by the women this week-have been .well -calculated to .alienate any or their supporters.

', Interspersed with this exposition of .the Marxian theories .were some'time illustrations, a few quaint.hymorisms,. .although one.would expect more fun !from'an Irishman, and with it all- a -.few -hard, cracks at the present day politicians, Mr. O'Brien doesn't/think the Conservatives will clamor so loudly for .public ownership now that their party is in power in Ottawa, and R. B.. Bennett has formed an elevator trust, and anyway there-will have to be quite an improvement in quality before they can hope to carry the p-ro-vjnee. ; As,.,for the Liberals, they are ied'by.aciever man;-who is the servant: of the C.N.R., so there you are; There is nothing left but .the-member fo;r�Rocky Mountain, and' one doesn't' Know yet what be st-'ands for beyond .condemnation of existing condition^ It-will be comforting to thc .men selling beefsteaks,, bread, milk and clothing, etc., to'learn that, .the high prices, so called are not the evjl the head of the house thinks they are when it comes to footing the bills. The working men are better off where the, prices: are. high than they are where, the prices, are lower. What the working man'wants Is to get a greater share of what he produces, and then he will be happier. It will probably interest Mr.- Bulyea, Mr. Sifton, Mr. Michener, Dr. Tory and other dignitaries to learn that they don't know anything about the meaning of the word values. They think they do but they have much to learn. Mr. O'Brien said so and with emphasis. Value Is not contained in measuring lumber, or weighing coal and wheat. Not a bit of it, although the leaders of thought in the province may think so. Raw material, timber limits, gold mines, etc., have no values in themselves. It is the worker who develops them who produces the value and without the worker there could be no value. From this standpoint Mr. O'Brien builds up his argument that the wage earner is a slave because in two hours at the outside he earns his living and'the rest of thg eight, ten or twelve hours he Is working for nothing, 'working for the greedy capitalist. God Bless the Tru�t ' �' Mr. O'Brien didn't condemn the monopolist or the trust. It is a case of God bless them. They cut out unnecessary expenses and talce the produced article direct to the consumer eliminating some of the thieving that goes on. - Thieving. That sounds harsh but that is the word. Both political parties in Alberta are made up of thieves. It is a case of one thief against the' other. addressed-Ahe laudience *s "Comrades," and no one in. the �primary- olass -of the "Marxian school would do that.

Do a Double Stunt Now Mayor Hardie has ah idea that the two propositions can be combined, and while Mr. Ross is in the city he will be asked to go over the ground, size up the possibilities of securing a head for a gravity water system, and at the. same time investigate whether a dam built for a water system would not also provide a harness for the river to make it gonerate electric current, and put Lethbridge on a par with other hydro-electric cities of Canada. The preliminary survey made by Engineer Arnold on the gravity waiter system showed that a head of over two hundred feet could be obtained by piping the water some thirty miles, and the mayor is of the opinion that in such a case it woukf be possible to provide hydro-electric power. � i However, Mr. Ross will not leave Lethbridge without giving expert opinion on the efficiency of the" power house. The Lethbridge power station is generally conceded to be one of the most up-to-date in Western Canada, and has all the appliances for saving, fuel, and cutting down operation, expenses. There may have been something- overlooked and Mr. Ross will be paid to investigate and make /-a complete report. If slack coal would provide cheaper power than coal from the city's own mine, he will be asked to show how it can be done. AH the possibilities of the district. in . the ,. direction of cheaper power will re- , ceive his attention, and Mayor Har-v die is certain that mucli good will come of his visit. Thc mayor expects to hear from' > Mr. Ross today stating when he can be in-Lethbridge, and a special meeting of the council will be arranged: to confer with him on his arrival. .GOT.
