LETHBRIDGE AND RAILWAYS Lethbridge, since the acquisition of the line to the south by the C. P. as simple as powiblc. and that the procedure under such an Act should be as cheap and efficient it if pos- sible to make it.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 39, int. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Vancouver Saturday Sunset doesn't agree with the action of the United Mine Workers in deciding to allow Asiatics to join the union. It says the only way to settle the Asiatic problem is exclusion. The Sun- set in its criticism directs all its re- marks at the Lethbridge union, for- getting- evidently that the action was taken by the District Mine Workers the majority of whose members are in British Columbia. This fact de- stroys the following statement of the K. is practically a single line city aud. Vancouver paper, "It is not likely i tllJlf. "RfificiJi nnirm not bad at that. But lest we over- look the-fact, be it said that owing to the recognition of our certain des- tiny by the Provincial Government and the unplaced capital of the coun- try, we are going to be not only one!

Yes sirs, as around the banquet tables would soon bring about church union. An admirable spirit- of union existed at the Provincial Government's railway last night's Laymen's Missionary polic-y is bit by bit revealed those I banquet. two roads creep ever and ever toward Lethbridge. Do you realize that the extension from Vegreville and Strath- cona will head straight for Leth- bridge? It has been talkeft of as the Calgary extension, but that is a. mis- nomer. It is the Lethbridge exten- sion. True it will have a cut. into Calgary, but its main direction is south-eastward. Macleod is rejoic- in the purchase by the C. N. R. of a .terminal site in that city, but as in. the case of Calgary that ambitious burg is on but a side issue. As the crow flies the line will come to Leth- Cardston and Calgary Liberals are preparing for the coming battle. Conventions will be 'held this -week 10 select candidates. CARDSTON Cardston, Feb.

Half a dozen lines to the east and west will meet here, before many of our hairs are gray, and two lines of a system are twice as good as one. So candidly one must need a powerful glass to espy any reason for a, grouchy soul in Eeth- bridge. These lines from the Korth will open up all that great area to the North, between Lethbridge and the Bow. They will not only develop Blairmore, Feb.

The Southeast is too vast and too virgin to be ignored, and the upshot of it will be that Leth- bridge .will discover herself to be the focal point of a great east and west system as well as two great systems bearing north and south. MORE LABOR LEGISLATION The amendment-to the Mechanic's Lien Act that has been brought down by the Alberta Government should go a long way towards simplifying prooeedure and expediting the speedy settlement of claims under the Act. The proposed amendment ex- tends the summary method of enforc ing liens under the Act (at present confined in its operation to claims un- der to all liens of whatever amount and practically makes it compulsory on lawyers to take the short and cheap method instead of is- suing a writ and going through the whole gamut of an action at law. The design of the Government when the Act was originally passed in 1906 was apparently to provide a simple and inexpensive method of enforcing small liens. It has, however, been: found in practice that in nearly all and Mrs. Harry Kanouse's baby boy, who has been quite ill is out of dan- ger again. Mrs. Bougerolle is very slowly re- covering her health.

Mrs. Bruuean returned from Mac- leod on Friday last. Miss Ross and Mrs. Haslett have moved, into Captain Beebe's house just opposite the school. They have very snug quarters.

The Alberta government propose there fore amendjthe law by strikinf out any limitation to this method being adopted and penalizing any lawyer who does not adopt it by giving pow- er to "the court to deprive him of any exti-a costs he would otherwise be to charge his client by car ryi% on an ordinary action at law to enforce the lien.

The proposed amendment gives full power to the court to do whatever is to dispose of the matter upon the return of a ten day ium- mons to the defendant and absolutely and in all cases with the necessity for bringing an ordinary action.
