Report) Ottawa, Fell. 5.-In a report to the department of Trade and Commerce, Mr. J. E. Ray, Canadian commissioner at Birmingham, Eng., says that the British trade "statistics ' show a decrease in the total purchases of timber and wood from Canada of $894,-700, In comparison with the previous year, and compared with those of the year 1907, they indicate a total decline of ?1;603,685. The total 1m-iports of ;Great Britain, however, were last 'year $1,725,790 less than the previous, year, and $(i,i54,4i.6 less than the year 1907... The chief items from Canada affected last year were hewn fir, an increase of $34Q,09Q;'' hewn oak, a slight increase; sawn or split, planned or dressed timber, a decrease of $1,779,-000; furniture woods, hardwoods and veneers, ah increase of $80,410; stoves an increase of $13,155; unenumerated, , an increase of $444,425. The Imports of furniture and cabinet ware from-Canada have fallen from $41,580 in 1907, to $4,460 in 1911. Thig"'''tieoHn.e-is to be regretted In view of the extensive excellent market in Great Britain for certain kinds of house and office furniture. The decrease cannot very well be attributed to the increased requirements of the Canadian market, as the hitter's exports of household furniture alone last year were $77,831 in excess of those In 1908. Manufacturers of wood imported from Canada last year were nearly 100 per cent, less than in 1910. There is practically no limit to the market-far wooden handles of all kinds. Great Britain's total purchases in 1911 of, wooden ware amounted to approximately $1,000,000. The United States, Russia and Germany are Canada's leading competitors. Canada's exports of merchantable w*t pulp wood to Britain amounted to $315,495, .a decrease of $432,225 in comparison with 1910, while those from Newfoundland indicate an increase of $226,000, doubtless due to last year. The quantity of foreign grain which arrived in Manchester during the yenr,'has created anew record. The final returns will show that about 525,000 tons 'of all descriptions have been imported. The grain arrived from, the following countries: United States and Canada ... 195,150 India ... ... ...... 140,840 Argentine;.. ..; v. ... ... 112,770 Russia and Black Sea ports ..' ,5G,580 Australia :.. ... ... ...... 12,300 Pacific Coast ... ... ...... 5,930 North Africa and Syria . .. 1,430 Total .. .. ..._____ .. 525,000 ER THE BOGUS TELEGRAM ANNOUNCING VISIT FROM KAISER-ALL ON DRESS PARADE Bless vHarriganl "God bless mama and papa, and God bless Harrigan," said little George, aged four years, as he knelt beside his mother for his evening prayer. "Why, George," said hiB mother, "who is Harrigan?" "That's me," be replied. ',;�( '�'' .,'��. ..'.:\view to making up the tariff bills which-will be submitted at the extra' session Oi congress. The Democratic tariff legislation of the last session imposed duties on wool and sugar on the ground that the revenue thus pro-^ vided was indispensable. This was the argument, that Chairman Underwood made on the floor of the house When replying to the attach of Wm. Jennings Bryan, who had demanded free raw wool, and his contention finally prevailed. Supporters of Bryan are now claiming that the reason then advanced will not apply when the proceeds of the Income tax flow into the treasury; that there is no need of placing a duty upon raw wool, sugar and other raw materials, because the revenue from such sources can easily be made up by the imposition of the income tax. It is the policy of the supporters, of Bryan, evidently urged on by th^ cotn-i moner himself, to make an effort to revolutionize the methods of raising the bulfc of the revenue. An entirely new fiscal policy may be adopted. T GET A E COALHURST TEACHER RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE-PRES.

ENGL Lethbridge Public Schools LIKELY 10 INJURE IHE REFORM CLUB LONDON STILL TALKING ABOU1 RESIGNATION OF LLOYD ' GEORGE AND CHURC-HILL London, Feb. 6.-London has au unusually interesting topic of discus-: sion in the resignations of Chancellor Lloyd George and WiJistOD Churchill from the Reform Club, and the threats of Sir Edward Grey and Lewis, Ha-rcourt, to follow suit because of the blackballing of Baron Do Forest, member of Parliament, who was put up for election by the two first-named ministers, and was supported by the two last. Consideration for the personal feelings of Baron De Forest has been allowed to fall into the beck ground in the interest taken in the action of the ministers on the discussion of the question whether a man is justified in removing his same from tire membership of a club, because a candidate'whose election he supported is; blackballed. It is pointed out that King Edward did not resign his membership in tho Royal Yacht squadron, although" it Is is a well-known fact that that'organization refused' to have anything, to, do with two. of his friends, despite? his Majesty's assiduous eanvatfsih'if of; members. , ' , � Are the members of the 'pre'sen.t; Cabinet, � some asls, more".. sen�}tiv,ei than tho late King? , f� ' It is recognized, however, that the., cases are not entirely: parallelj'tfoi; in* a political, club like the Reform Cfub, where membership is regarded as, a reward -for political ^service, the leaders of the party certainly have some justification in withdrawing if the candidate they wish to, .favor is refused admission. Baron De Forest is in goodly com-pnny, if (rejected. Cecil _Rhodes was blackballed hy the members of White's club, and thereupon. King Edward, then Prince of Wales, the Duke of Fife and Earl Grey resigned. White's has never quite recovered its lost prestige. White's also blackballed such men as Lord Randolph Churchill, and the late Lord Lytton, while Gladstone was refused admis* sion to the British club at Biarritz. Glaring instances of this kind have often caused an agitation for the modification of the rule obtaining in most London clubs by which one blackball causes the rejection of the'eandidate.

MISSOURI IS CAUSTIC Some Very Sarcastic References to Achievements of the City Council Editor Lethbridge Herald; Dear Sit,-In looking over the columns of your paper from time . to time I notice you touch upon various items such as subways, gravity water, system and encouraging the [aimers "oiiiing to town to enrich the city treasury.' Allow-'rhe to corrittvent � on several of these items. The various improvements that have taken place which your paper strongly advocated. There was a growl oyer paying for .these improvements and you turn around and casually remark that the people voted for these improvements. "A. short while ago when the power plant, was completed we were gravely told that the city had a water system that would supply a population of 30,000 people. Now thera is a kick that the'water system is not what;it should be. Have we got over 30,000 people here at present or where is the trouble. Do the people �deliberately waste this water or is it another case of incompetency. The sooner this city gets down to results and not excuses, it will he far bettcr for us. Now, Mr. Editor, we are up against the proposition of paying our aldermen. I as a ratepayer say no.1 These men promised this, that and the other before election, offering their services free and knowing a certain portion of their time would have'to be given to the welfare of the city. As far as I am concerned they will either, do business or get out and let some, one in who t will, and believe me, Mr. Editor, I believe -there are men in the city who would" consider it an honor to serve the city. Last, hut not least, I have been told that the contracting firms, paid $30,-000 as commission to the city. Has it shown up or not ? Ibelieve this is recoverable by law.
