The occasion is the celebration of the sixteenth aunivers ary of the- beginning of Rotary, for it was on the 23rd of February, in Chicago, that the first meeting took place, which proved to bo the begin- ning ot a world-wide movement, which is destined to play a wouderful part in bringing together the men cf all nations through the, simple medium of acquaintanceship. During the period of the i of the Lethbridge club, the people of this city have had many reasons to i know that the club is composed of; men who are willing to assume places of leadership and co-operation in the real constructive undertakings for the good of tao community. But a great many who may regard the Rotary or- ganization very highly, judging only from the nature of its activities, are not at all acquainted .with the history of the orgauijution as a world ment and they know out little con- cerning the creed which appears to be just the kind of a bond to hold togeth- er a bunch of live wires such as haTe taken such an active interest in things here since the organization of the local club in ISIS. In order that everybody may know just what a Rotary club is, what its teachings are, why it has such a small, restricted membership, why the wires of its members are such enthusiastic supporters of its activities, the club men have decided to devote one entire meeting to a discussion and consider- ation of the several phases of the :Iub' and organization, ideals, activitiea ;rowth.

Premier Stewart's advisers must be thoroughly informed regarding his views on this subject. There would be little, if any, danger in guiding this legislation .through the house. .1'robably no government measure could secure more unanimous sup- port. Delay until the fall before any- .ig definite is done, would be just sufficient to affect a year's crop iu on irrigation district. The Herald sympathises witli the members of the government in tlieii desire to have the premier with them when they take up a matter so im- portant, but just because it ia so im- portant and delay so costly, wo feel that even in the prevailing circum- stances the government ought to bring in its Irrigation proposals at this session, and thereafter secure wiergetic. action on its initial irriga- tion scheme.
