He is hope^ laly muddled when it comes to an is of provincial finances, and: e fact .that he uses his most tren-ant language when on that theme monstrates that there is something ilful about-his ignorance. Mr. A^ich-' iner knows that the debt of this pro-nee is what the premier says It is, ; no more and no less. The govern-:'4n�nit cannot borrow money or nego-rfjtiate loans without the sanction of ;.;ithe legislature. Mr. Michener knows ;^^at, or if he doesn't he has no busi-l^,^ to iiudvVtAke tha i-ola =or eritli:. il^r. Michener knows what the provin- cial debt is, hut by a system of juggl-lOK m4. dishonest statements, he at-teiBBt�d ta'jcCBBte the impression that the ^opded indebtedness of the province greater than it Is. . J'What -Mr,, Wichenar hopes � to ^n hy sijo^'methods is hat.d to realbe. .:|f(B if ..^nr^ly: intelligent' enough*4o jkg(y�r-ipj3^|; t�^ electors are bound to ^^ojjJe "W^se to his Ignorance as to finance^,; and to correctly estimate hii| Vjot(ve' in repeating what he now knofrs''is an absolutely misleading pr^^qtati^n of the business of the province.: If Mr. Michener repeats these i,^nfiJr,and untruthful state-j^ents'th^fe can be only one term to apply be will not be ahte to escape.

Some of the Calgary sport slingers have been getting it off their manly chests these days that it Lethbrldge does not Join the professional ball swim this year, it will reflect on the credit of the province.

"Morning, Jerry," snid Charles! , "Foine morning. Mister Kroning," says Jerry. The officer smiled. Noticing a thickly applied layer of yellow egg around Jerry's generous mouth, the detective did the Sherlock Holmes stunt, and isays: "I'll bet you the cigars I can toll you what you ate for breakfast this morning, Jerry." "Yer on," was the quick reply. "Ol'll bet yez, ye can't." "Alright then, Jerry, I'll beat you. 'Twas eggs." "It's a dar-T-rn smart davtictive yez are," says Jerry, "but that was four days ago." , Jerry went away with an Isle of Erin grin on his countenunce. Which Is merely another case to prove that the Irish are still a little too much for the Dutch. TKeStan&d Securities Co.
