At first he was brave and true to his agreement, and said he would not give in, as he considered the position he took as the right one. I3ut his 'all came at last. The forces against him within his party were too strong for him and he fell. Yesterday in the House when he spoke, it was not with the words that he would have spoken had he been free to express his own mind as he did a few months ago. Cut rather he was the mouthpiece of a fraction of his party, which bade fair to oust him from his position if he did otherwise. His capitulation is complete. on the hard-hearted men. -It is about' time they were trying some other method. One would think to read Borden's amendment and the talk of some of his party that the British fleet was nothing but Dreadnoughts, and that a Canadian navy of lesser sized ves- sels would be of no use whatever.

WHERE LETHBRIDGE STANDS From the building statistics com- piled from the various cities of Canada the year just closed has established a record. From the present indications this year will see even a greater ad- vance than that o? lasr. year. The prom- ise for the future is based on the re- markable activity during the latter months of the year. In two places on- ly, Edmonton and Halifax, was a small loss shown, and may be explained, in the latter case at least on account of the extraordinarily heavy building op- orations of 1907. Aside from these plac- convinced, or who is so narrow-mind- ed as to impute sinister motives to an act of courtsy, is hardly one from whom one will expect bold, broad or level-headed legislation as a member o' the provincial legislature. .Mr. Head- ley seemed afraid that Dr. Tory might et his farmer friends and .other repre- sentatives of the agricultural societies on the university grounds and there mesmerize or throw over them the' spell which he was some time ago ac- cused of throwing over the university senate. If he did net care to accept the invitation extended by Dr. Tory, the only thing to do was to refuse it in a gentlemanly way. J. W. McXicol, who Kvas represent- ing the Lethbrldge Agricultural Soci- ety at the convention, spoke truly when he called Mr. Hoadley's action insult" to Dr. Tory, and every fanner in Alberta, whether he wants to see the agricultural college a: Stnuhcona or not. will commend him for bringing the member for Okotoks up with a jerk and setting the dele- gates to the convention right in their own eyes and in the opinion of the HELPLESS FAMILY IN HOUSE ON FIRE Pittsburg, Feb. a kero- sene lamp exploded in the home o Andrew.Pacie at Walls, a suburb earl> today, Pacie, who Is 28 years of age was lying in bed ill with typhoid fe- ver with his wife In another room with a four days' old baby.

Pacie, unable to rise from his sick bed, watched the tlames approach and was not res- cued until the bed clothes had caught fire. He cannot live as his condi- tion, even before the explosion, was critical. The baby was fatally burned.

Phone It O AND .RAXAM rJNANCMH C WERE SHORT OF FUNDS es, the year was one of complete as- public, cendaiicy on every hand, and a tri- umphal march from coast to coast. The biggest increase noted is in the case' of Saskatoon, which is recorded an ov- erwhelming gain of 7G7 per cent.; Fer- nie takes second honors with an ad- vance of 449 per cent., and Lethbridge lands in the third position by over- reaching the previous year's figures to the extent of 246 per cent.. These fig- ures serve as a reflex of the West as a. whole, and while the proportionate increase in all cases is not so marked, the results in general are, to say the least, gratifying to the extreme. Of the other cities in Alberta, Cal- gary annexed a gain of 1S9 per cent., and Medicine Hat 62 per cent. In the total amount of building per- -mits issued for the year Toronto leads with a total of eighteen million and Winnipeg takes second place with aio- tal of over nine million. Lethbridge lor the total amount of building per- mits stands twelfth in the Dominion. In the West this city stands ahead of Re- gina by about three times the amount, of Brandon by over four times the amount, and of Port Artmir by about She surpasses by many times cities of Ontario of twice the size and over, Branti'ord, Halifax, London, St. John, St. Thomas and others. It is gratifying to note that the comparative progress of Lethbridge anu other Western cities has not been achieved at the expense of the older cities of the East. Everywhere cities of the East. Everywhere inroughout the country Is seen the same steadily increasing building activity. That Lethbridge has achieved this place in the face of keen rivalry and prosperous conditions ev- erywhere premises the conclusion that iier future growth is destined to reach a place among the very urst cities of the Dominion. Prospects for both large and small work were never better, and architects and builders can look for- ward to an extremely busy season. To sum up the situation in a word, 1909 has been a great year, but 1910 will, unless all signs fail, be a greater one in every respect. OUR POINT OF VIEW.

It had been hoped, when the ques- tion was first brought into promin- ence, that it would not be made a party question, but like the militia, be left on neutral ground. Sir Wilfrid and Mr. Borden did their best in this direction. A policy was pre- pared which met with the approval of both, and a motion embodying ir.s prin- ciples passed the House, with the sup port of both parties. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and tho Lioeral party stood by the agreement, and the Naval Service Bill as introduced by Sir Wilfrid is the outcome of the mo- tion passed in March last.
