On Sunday the Forum voted to have the city council re-open negotiations with the Carnegie Library Foundation Fund to secure _ $30,000 for uie erection of a public library here. The Herald is of the opinion lha-t no other urging should be needed hy the commissioners. We believ3 this is the feeling of practically everybody in Lethbrid ge. The people want a library. They feel the need of it mon today than ever before. Particularly do they waat a reference library. . Economic problems were never of such Importance, | the deposits of the opposition were lost.

They had no option in the ou'{ matter; but, while giving their vote for union, they cherished the belief that, tho Union movement was a piece of political foolishness that i the leading exponents of tho differing e same political often than not they have been Liberals.

This view has also been confirmed by the declaration of a leading member of the government, who was also a member of the preceding government, that old politr- into play government. The expectations and hopes of those who urged Union government and fought for it aro thus being realized.

The unity of purpose, which they ar� displaying, has been made possible by two considerations. One was the fact that the old political parties had become hi the main artificial organization. They were not divided from one another by deep chasms of opinion. These men from both .par ties when they got together around a table found themselves holding pretty much the same views Upon the big questions.
