The Herald received a copy of the Winnipeg Free Press of Jan. 31 on Saturday last. My the mail service in this country is fine. No* matter how many explanations Mr. Whyte and Mr. Jamiestm mtiy iroakc, they cannot ccnvince people of Western Canada that they had in J before the commissioner, as my | enough cars and motive power to own luwjer would not be allowed to handle the trade of Western Canada i**^ �^�*'� >�oro land A proposition is likely to be made to the city counci] favoring ap -proaching the A.K. & I. Co. with a view to the purchase of the river bottom and the coulees within the city limits. The time is at handwhen for ..A writer in tbe Chicago Record Herald tclla the following deHberato lie: , - "I have been greatly amuacd at tha surprise expresaed by the Amcr-ioaa people over th� recent action of Governor Swvetenham of Jamaica, in his conduct toward Admiral Davis If those who are so wrought up over the giovernor's anti-American feeling had lived on a borderlaad between this country and a British colons* as long as I ha%v they would not be at all surprised. It juat happened that the world was looking that way when the governor expressed him -seif, so the matter attracted oitten -tion. but nearly every British official that I have come across in the past pi'actioe there. The writer says the above tinA much more. Thera is no sentiment in Canada against the Yankoss. are welconwd to this country, made feci at home. Now Mr. FIcijid makes two charges that pro%'e him to be an ignoramus. Does ha not knoy a Canadian transactin? business in the United States coui'd not employ a Canadian lawyer eny more than an American cont'd employ an American lawyer in Canada. Tho same is the case with the surveyor. Canada compels lawyers and doctors and dentists and sur\-cycrs to pass certain examina r tions before they can practice their professions. TMvs reason 'is, we want to keep the stan.i'ard of the professions up to prevent any Tom, Dick or Harry hanging out a ehinglc as a doctor or lawyer. Uncle Sanv does exactly the same on his side of the line thi s year. Wm. Whyte, ol the C. P. R. went They to Sdmontoa to discuss a high level and j bridge with tbe council of that city but he would not give I�thbridge a ohanoe to lay a proposition before him in regard to a traffic bridge in connection with the big C. P. R. structure here even after he had promist:d to let the Board of Trade know air al)out it tracts were let. How mysterious arc the ways of this big norporationthat has te3n subsidized "up to tha neck" by the people of this country. J. C. Drawcry of Moyic, B. C. tributes the congested state of watervorks purposeH. The new health I bill now befbro the legislature u-ill contpel septic tanks to be estaibjish-ed in connection with- sewerage sys-tmm. 1 his addition to our sower -a^ system will haw to be accommodated and the purchase of more lend at the river bottom would fill the bill. The city would also be enabled to provide a site for the now sawmUl, ' if' thia .land was procured. before the eon- m^oy *� ��nd �ouW be used to Rood advantage, one of which would te supplying a aite for a brickyard as > it could be ' easily accontinodatcd on one of the 'benches t.hat would ibe taken over in con  nectim with the coulees. The idea of the purchase of this property Tito nuisance ground well boars out its name. It is certainly a'mcisanco, being even worse than tho dogs, which cm .regato aljout the streets. The stench that comes from the caat some doj's is enough to make a strong' man faint. Tho counoilshould look into 'this matter at onoe^ and have ,thc nuisance ground remold to a place where it will not annoy citizens in the central part of tho city. fi�ight traffic In the newt, not to / the Herald as being a good All countries are cursed with cranks and Mr. Noble is one that the U. S. is bothered with. Noble is the sort tihat thinks it is lots of fun to come to Canada tuid flaunt tho Stars and lack cil cars so much as shortage of motive pouer. Ho ia reported as bavins made the following state -moiit. From one authoritative source he learned that while the Britisn Col- or� and the council should make a strong effort to carry it through.

Instructions received by the super' intendeiit of the Mounted Police to prepare accommodation for thirty-five prisoners in tho barracks ground was taken to mean that tha Provincial governntcnt intemdod to cstab -lish the Pnyvincial prison here and were going to acquire the barracks property for tho purpose. Th� c4ity council welcomes th) idea of tho jail coming here but theythink if the �l>arracks property is changing hands thi city th-juld be given the opportunity to aoauire it for park purposes.
