"With fingers niirnb, with glazing eyes I Beyond the whirl of biting ahow, The hero penned his last farewell, ' In one short flash his soul called clear While riding swift the raging skies And rising In the vision's 9I0W, Death mooked the blizzard's eerie yell. J Mother and boy smiled warm and near "Oh England, rich beyond compare, Protect our loved ones, then we go. Without a thought, withou! a care. Knowing that God hath willed It so."

MUCH NEW BUILDING PLANNED AT LACOMBE Lacombe, Feb. 20.-iLacombe's ne'w municipally owned skating and cui'l-Ing rink, Just completed at a cost of about ?8000, is regarded as one more evidence of the growth the public spirit that is now animating the progress of the town. This is one of the first municipally owned rinks to be ei-ected in the west. A very active se'ason of building and construction work is already being planned for by local contractors, and the movement appears likely to be considerably stimulated by the auT ticipated inrush of new settlors into the district during the'coming spring; With the establishment of i^w� mercantile houses, and the buUding of many stores, business, blocks and residences, the combined activities of the town are likely to establish a new record during the y�ar just abe?id; Let Us Infroduce You to Our New Offices To pach person bringing in a bona fide listing of Lethbridge proj^crty We Will Give Free of Charge 4 Souvenir Panoramic View of This Beautiful City An Exact reproduction of the large Painting exhibited liere a short = time ago.

P. Jackson, Liberal, 5660, a majority of 1,067. The vacancy was due to the sitting'member, Lord Balcarres, entering the House of Lord.s, and at the last general election the vote stood Balcarres 7,423 ; Jackson, 4,887, a Unionist majority of 2,516. In January, 1910, the Unionist majority was 2,212 ; in 1908 it was 1,384, and in the four previous eieotions a Unionist had been returned unopposed. Unionists claim differences of a purely local origin may account for their reduced majority. Conservative Members Worked (Continued from Iront page). Mr, McKenxie : "I say tliere was some collusion between ilic opposition and those who were opposed to the province in that case. I have lieard lanvyers boast tliat they had prevented the' province getting the full facts beEore^the privy council. Mr. Clarke refused to submit to examination, and Holt, the !ieo:i oflicial ,of the Royal bank, refused to give evidence in connection with the case. It was strongly desired hy lawyers for the bank that they sliould not give this evidence. If they had notliing to hold baclc in connection with the issues involved why did they not come forward like any other lionorable contestants, to submit to examination and to allov/ the facts to go before the court. Mr. McKenzle said the opposition sought'to repre.sent the debt of the province as $21,800,000, as a matter of tact tlie statement of assets and liabilities of tiie province on December 31, 1913, was as follows : Assets $i4,6i^5,695.98 ; liabilities debentures due 1938, $2,000,200, due 1922, $4,-866,066.68 ; treasurer bills due July 1, 1013, $7,293,3,33.33 ; total liabilities $14,160,199,99 ; surplus of assets over liabilities, $485,495.99. Mr. McKenzie concluded with the emphatic .statement ,,tjiat the -^amendment proposed to' the reply lo the speech from the throne by the honorable leader of the opposition would damn the credit of the province more than a thousand A. & G. W. cases. The credit of the province today was as good, as that of any other province iin the Dominion'."'^'^ . Rutherford's Position (Premier Sifton in reply to the leader of the opposition said that the whole of the bonds ot 'the Edmonton, Dunvegan and B. C. Railway liad been sold. The TrJiders bank had taken over the whole pi the bonds unsubscribed by the public. .Ex-Premier A. C Rutherford said last session be had urged caution with regard to provincial finances. It would not be wise to pledge the credit of the province up ' to the hilt, and from the statement of the provincial treasurer it would appear that all that had been borrowed was spent. He did not object-to expenditure on roads and telephones that money could readily be obtained, but the province should live within its means He had always thought that the government should have offered a difter-pnt solution to the A. & G. W. difr ficulty and when the matter came before � the legislature in ,1910 he stated liis reason for thinfcingi so. He regrette'd the legislation that had been passed and he thought that the Premier also ^regretted it. He coviVd not agree with the provincial treaur-er that any direful resultsxwould. follow if the amendment proposed by the leader of the opposition were adopted" by the house, butso far as lie was concerned his duty would be clear. He had voted want of Confidence in the government two yeartf .ago, and he felt it his duty today to vote for the amendment. The division on the amendment.�moved by the opposition! regretting the position in which the province had been placed by the confiscatory legislation of the Sifton administration found only three members of the house absent, these being Attorney-General CI. W. Cross, who has not been present since the opening of the house ; R. T. Telford, Leduc ; and C. M.- O'Bri'en, So-olalLst'member for Roclcy Mountain, All the Liberal niembei;s Mnsd up against the amendment with the ex-cdftion of Dr. Rutherford and J. K. Gornwall, member for Peace -Rivor. �, Pr. Rutherford voted with the opposition on the amendment, while J. K. Gormvall, paired with - Geo. p. Smith, member tor GaiDTOse.. .The vote on the aincpdmenfc was ,8 for ^nd 27 against.
