THE Herald sonic special news features the oilier (lay. The "matrices" could not be obtained in Canada, so were ordered abroad. They ouine. and along willi them a bill for customs duty amounting to nearly double the cosl of the iVslmvs at Hie factory. 4 Not'because this affects the Herald's pocket- buok, but because it has to do with every reader of tlw Herald, do we mention this matter. II is uur desire to give the people the best within rea- son, but how is it possible under such circum- stances. If the goods in question were available from a Canadian manufacturer, even at double the price, could not complain. But they are nut available in Canada. The Herald is not the only paper that has complained of tliis matter. Every newspaper publisher in Canada has the same kick. It isn't a case of a protective tariff. It's most anything else one has a mind to call it. THE ESTIMATES. HPHE estimates of the expenses of operation of 1 the city for 191-J Jiiv? Ivynjablcd, and at (irst pause they look formidable. A toial of yj9 will be needed, which does not include about S130.000 for all school purposes. The addition of this tatter amount brings the grand total up to iipprpximately However, the estimates have not been adopted bs yet, and will not be for a week or more. Mean- while the ratepayers will have a golden oppor- tunity to ask questions. That is what they should do. No one lias a right to assume that, because >vc have commission government now, all our civic ills will disappear. Xo one has any right lo assume any such'lhing. Nothing should be as- sumed under any form of government, except that the elected representatives are doing their And even then, they do better when the electors keep a weather eye out to see everytluni tjial is going on. We are inclined to the belie Dial LelhbridgE electors have grown apathetic since last December. Of. course there has not been much stir in the civic world.since the elec- tions, but we warn the people that if Uiey want to make commission government a success they nuist keep alive io the civic affairiJ of the day. So now that the estimates have been tabled Oiere is something important to talk about, and we shall expect some questions from the public before they arc finally done and passed. "When that transcontinental system, {the C. P. R.) was built there were only about four million peojjle in Canada, yet not .only has this railway justified itself financially, but it has become the greatest aud most prosperous transportation sys- tem in the world. "What the Canadian Pa- cific has done, there is every reason to be- lieve the Grand Trunk Pacific, and Canad- ian Northern will also do. Like the Can- adian Pacific, these railways will open up immense tracts of virgin territory, rich in all the natural resources that go to make a country prosperous. Furthermore where- as when the Canadian Pacific was built Canada was practically unknown to the outside world, today she is the greatest land of promise to which intending emi- grants from other countries can look. There is not doubt, therefore, that the new territory along our, two new transcontinental -will be settled at a far quicker rate than was the case with the land along the C.P.R. A new Empire has been opened up for Canada by the two Iranscontinentals now being completed, and nobody who looks at the situation in- telligently can doubt that this will result in unprecedented prosperity for Canada, despilp the lugubrious ruminations' of the. sensational Mr. Bennett." The Montreal journal further pertinently re uarks that Mr. Bennett is not'quite clear in h statement as two transcontinental. It presume ie means the National Transcontinental and th Z. N. R., and if so the ti last named should be placed not on the Libcra but on Mackenzie and Mann. OUK POINT OF VIEW. Only A Few Acre Tracts in The Y A IMF Iv A1N Hi Farm Products Limited have the-interests of the Lethbridge district at heart, and deserve the support of every farmer who has hay or pota- toes to market. Lethbridge district comes to the fore with the largest exports of seed wheat. Southern Alberta is the home of prize winning wheat in competi- tion with (lie world, and is perfectly capable of supplying Hie best. W MAKING A REPUTATION. HAT Mr. K. B. Bennett says in the and be says in the East depends on what lie regards his particular vantage ground. Tak- ing the-various speeches of the Cnlgary.M. P. be, like an experienced and lalcnled actor, sizes up Ws gallery and plays lo it. Or at-any rale he opines he does, which, after all, is riot the same thing. The consecjucnce is that the estimable lawyer bus unwillingly cslablishcd for himself the reputation that what he says has to be taken a grain but with an ounce or two of iwll.- Speaking to Ihc Conservative Club at McGill University he, according to Ihc Montreal Mail, said Ibat "one.of Ihe greatest mistakes ever made by the Liberals was the building of Iwo Irans- c'onlinenlaV railways." He added the equally as- lonishJng information that "one Iransconlintiita needed, but two arc hardly needed today." To back up the jailer statement, Mr. Dennett tirgued thai one railway after another in Hit United States went inlo Ihe hands of a receiver because they fried to build a transcontinental rail way before were Iwenly-flvc million people in {he country. The faluily of IJcnnctrs argument is jhown by (he Mail in 'llie following manner; Women escape by ladder from burning build- ng, reads a headline. And the fire was caused ly the nibbling of mice. Did the fire really cause iiic hasty exit? We pause for a reply! The new grazing regulations adopted by the Dominion government will prove lo be a great j boon lo mixed farming, especially as they vide that a large share of the slock grazed must be for breeding purposes. 'Die Gkichcti "Call" comes out in new slyle lo grcel its readers. The name has been changed back again from the "Bow Valley ('all" lo the old lame under which the paper started. We con- {ralulate the editor on the newsy appearance of lis rejuvenated publication. While other points in Canada arc Dragging about the hundreds of bushels of seed wheat they have bcon shipping to Uncle Kam, (he district centering on Lcllibridgt has been doing the real heavy exporting mid never saying a word, lint the statistics show we have a couple of hundred thousand of good American dollars to prove that we, haven't been cooling our heels while Hie other fellow made the haul.. However we will now st-l in and annex whatever of the glory the other fellows have hmi Irying lo rob us of, We are selling these acre tracts for (o per acre less than what laiul in Hie same vicinity can be bought for in large tracts. Add to this the cost of subdividing arid placing on the mar-, ket, also a profit ou the investment, and yon have an advantage of close to per acre nf what land In the same vicin- ity can be sold for when placed on the market. In other words, in buying acre tracts in the KANE PLACE at per acre, yon are buyirig it far close to per acre less than it would be possible for you to buy land in the same vicinity when it is .subdivided into acre tracts and placed on the market. If yon will investigate this statement you will find it correct. 'We see now (hat will not have, enough ACTC Tracts in the Kane Place to go around. People who have inves- tigated (he location of these valuable acre tracts', which are practically iilml- [ting1 the city limits, were. noi. long In sizing lip their value, and buying.jus! as many acre tracts as they could sec their way clear to handle.' When (lie few acres we have left are sold have no more land in this block that we will i subdivide or place on the market soon, but when we do subsivide it we will guarantee the pin-chasers of these acre tracts that they can meet our prices aud make a good big profit. For the benefit of those who; may not have had an opportunity of reading our former ads re this, valuable acreage, we will give the location, which is one half mile east of the city limits and withiii easy walking distance of the street car line. This acreage is practically level and very rich soil. It has a full water right, the cost of which, including (axes, is ijii.25 55e" Each Acre Will Subdivide into 10 and the Price is Per Acre Terms: Per Acre Cash and the Balance in Monthly Instalments of each; Interest at 8 Per Cent Per Annum Ynnr lOUr by 1nwrilnB a clause- in your (he time your'last payment is made, if you would rather, have all the principal you have paid, together with bankable interest back, than to have a clear title to the we agree to refund same. When the few acre tracts we have left are sold your opportunity of ever again being able to buy acre tracts at per acre iii the vicinity of these, tracts will be an oppor- tunity of the past.
