DON'T FORGET LETHBRIDGE Lethbridge wants to see every Southern Alberta point get railroads for railroads -bring in the settlers and develop the towns and villages. It must not neglect its own inter- ests, however. We must look after Lethbridge every day and every hour. As citizens oi Lethbridge we believe _this city has already established its position as the commercial capital of the South. It holds the same posi- tion in the south as Calgary in the centre and Edmonton in the north. Naturally we want to be considered of like importance to .Calgary and Edmonton. One of our duties along this line is to impress railroads, as well as manufacturers and wholesal- ers with the advantageous location of Lethbridge in the eentve of a rich and growing country. We should go to the railroads and tell them of these advantages and urge them to come here. Take for instance the announcement that the C..JS7. E. will build direct from Saskatoon to Macleod. If that statement is correct Lethbridge will be on a branch of this line and not on the main line. We have no ob- jection to Macleod being on the main line, but we want to be on it too. If there is a possibility of our being left on a. side line then it is our duty to get after the C. N. R. and show them that they cannot afford to allow their main line from Saskatoon to Lethbridge to pass us by.

OUR POSNT OF VIEW The Board oi Trade banquet ought TGU56 up ttie eiituU5I5.5JULi vf tiic members. Be sure and attend the Abraham Lincoln anniversary tomorrow night. Lincoln was a great and good man and it won't hurt you to go around and hear incidents of his career and essons from his life emphasized by gifted one a prominent citi- zen of the neighboring state. BUT IT BECOMES A SERIOUS MATTER IF XEG.M3CTED. ay CULTIVATE FRIENDLY RELATION The Herald had a letter from a leading High River citizen the other day in which this statement was made: "High River is awakening to the fact that it will pay us to throw in with Lethbridge instead of Cal. gary." This expression of feeling from High River indicates that Lethbridge is growing in the estimation of South- ern Alberta towns and it will pay us to cultivate the most friendly rela- tions with every town and village. The building of the new C. P. R. branch is going to place us in closer touch, with such thriving towns as High.River and the establishment-.of friendly relations with such towns will eventually bring to whole- sale houses and industries patronage that at present is given to Calgary. A STORY MR. HAMMOND USED TO TELLr (Toronto Saturday Night.) The late C. Hammond :durinjj his lifetime used to delight in the follow ing- droll taJe at his own expense. As is well known, he was one of the phy- sicians generally called in when a. fin ancial institution was in extremis, be- cause of his shrewd and honest busi- ness sense and the confidence and es- teem in which the .general public helc him. For that reason he was ap- pointed president of the boards ot bqth the Federal Bank and the Onta- rio Bank when these institutions were forced to go into liquidation, and he took a hand in straightening out the affairs of many another institution. It will be remembered that on the evening' tnat the Ontario Bank went to the wall there was every reason to fear a run on the many branches of that institution when the doors open- ed next moraine. In the panicky condition of financial affairs at that time there was no knowing where such a craze would end. Therefore, the other banks came to the rescue and it was arranged that the branch- es should be taken over by the Bank of Montreal immediately. This sud- den transfer of interests within less than fourteen hours, together with the provision of the necessary funds to meet heavy withdrawals, entailed THEY EMPLOY Every Conservative British Columbia advanced the argu- ment that there should be no Asiatics in the but when Ralph Smith, the Liberal member irom Na- charged each one of them being an employer of yellow la- bor, they were like unto a man wh h'ad not on a wedding garment speechless. Mr. Smith made it very clear that if there is an Asiatic prob lem io- British Columbia today th Conservatives are responsible for it They not only encouraged the gration of these people, but they con tinue to employ them. The new members from British Co Itimbia do not appear to be familiar the at all. No person ha informed them that Mr. Borden anc Foster continually pressed th Government to become a party to th Japanese treaty, and When the same came before the House the .Conser vatives voted lor it to a man. JUDGE CASSELS' REPORT The report of Judge Cassels has been a great .disappointment to the Conservatives in the House. This re- port has been referred to upon many occasions, and its probable contents used by members of the Opposition, in season and out of season. The report completely exonerates the Government and every member of it. Mr. Brodeur is commended for taking steps to prevent the abuses which have been practised by officials of the department, acting contrary to orders. It has been found that men appointed by the former Conser- vative Government have been un- faithful, and many of them have al. ready been suspended, and some will be dismissed. What punishment will be meted out is not yet decided. This report absolutely endorses the position taken by the Government, which was, in short, that the Govern- ment could not be held responsible lor the of a few scallawags who should never have been retained in the Government employ. That the most the Government could do was to order an investigation to be followed JbT proportionate action on the result of same. To the dwiuAy of the Opposition, not make any re- fWftiOM upon the Government of the dtr, MM! from this time there will ftUwrioni to the work which GMMlt hW concluded. The to now attempting di- Mfcttion from the guilty men, part of all the leading financiers of the city. Mr. Hammond was one of those who were up almost all night and down town again early in the morning to see that matters went well and that a panic was averted. It so happened that an investment compare, in the management of which Mr'.. Hammond played a. prominent part, held a mortgage on the .proper- ty of an old negro woman who held considerable real estate in the cen- tral part of the city. The old wom- an read the morning papers and call- ed her daughter. From her hoard she took out a considerable roll of bills and extracted a number bearine- the name of the Ontario Bank. "Mandy. you take these down and Pay an instalment on that mortgage" she commanded.- bank's bust- ed, and we g-ot get rid of these here bills just as fast as we. can." The girl took the money down town and as the instalment was not yet due the matter was laid before Mr. Hammond. As soon as he saw the sio-nature of the bills the latter dis- cerned the reason of this undue haste in meeting payments in advance. "Whv. didn't you know that the Ontario Bank had he Queried with twinkle in his eye. "Yessir, but Ma she say, 'P'rao? TSr. Hammond, he ain't found it out vet." Pneumonia.
