The people want what they want until something better is shown for thorn to want and then they will want that. Let the Council's gas-well com- mittee disclose the proposition for which the city should drop what have already expressed a wish for and if it is better it will be taken. Leader Robertson cannot fool the labor men with suggestions that la- bor representatives be allowed to sit on the floor of the House. They would prefer a good deal more to sit on a few of their alleged friends, like .Mr. Robertson. Frank Sherman knows good legislation when he it and so he endorses that passed by the Al- berta government. Mr. Sherman says the labor people have not got all tiiat they would like to get. That is the way with the rest of are continually looking for more and better things. JOB The Herald DEPARTMENT. Job Department is the best equipped in Southern Alberta. All classes of work handled expe- ditiously and satisfactorily. Walter Jordan, Manager of the Job Depart- ment. 106. The third session of the Alberta Le- gislature will go down into history as one of the most important in the history of the province. Labor men will look upon it as one of the bright spots in their lives for the legislation passed has more to do with improving conditions for the workingmen than anything else. Don Hiebert, the most prominent petal' of Alberta's Rosebud, is anxious that his wise sayings should bo re- j corded and distributed among his con- stituents. In stating that Mr. Sim- mons would have his speeches in the Ottawa Hansard and Ottawa papers, he made a prophecy of Mr. Sim- mon's success at the election that will not be exactly comforting to that gentleman's opponents. But Mr. Hiebert has no such hope and complains that he will never be heard of if the province does not have a Hansard. Such is fame. The deeds that men do live after them. His- tory records what is worth saving of word and deed. Would the Don be great, he must do or say something that will go beyond the pages of Hansard for the steps to the throne of greatness are not made of the vol- umes ct Hansard. he pastorate, the pastor waa iinpres- by the loyalty of ft cotpri a of young women, who naturally acted as a magnet upon some of the young men. A change was noted after those young folks were marriod. Some of the men continued their attendance, but, thy ilt.stnt, and the excuse always was the same. The preacher decided to re-establish his old plan and he hopes to have a dozen or thirty babios pres- ?nt every Sunday. One of the church parlors has been atted up as a nursery. It is presided over by forty members of the Evans class, who will work in relays of ten it each service. And the class in- cludes the prettiest girls in the Church. They have been especially trained by their own mammas. When baby lets out its first whimper, teething ring will bo chucked be- tween its presumably sore gums. If that does not have the desirec .'ffeet, af bottle of milk will bo pro- lucerl, but if baby still is belligerent its clothing will be searched for i uray pin. Then, if baby yells, Dr Lilian Roberts will look it over. The baby (ioe.s not have to cry out to ge hold of a doll or teddy bear.

Last year when the rate payers of the city were asked lor their views on the purchase of the Electric Co. gas well for the Herald urged them to vote in favor of the purchase. Up to the present no proposition has been olaced before the rate payers that is better than the one they voted favor of. at that time. As far as the Herald is concerned, and we believe also the electors who voted in favor of the purchase of the Electric company gas well, no reason been offered why they s hould CHURCH 'AT HOME' TO BABIES Minister Establishes Nursery, Mothers Can Attend So A week ago last Saturday evening the local union No. 574 of the Unit- ed Mine Workers of America were "at. home" in the.

Up to the present time no such proposition has been oftered. It'ns true that according to a report of the committee for the first time given light of day in a local pa- per yesterday that certain proposi- tions of the Council to the Electric Light company have not been accept- ed by the company, but in the face Chicago. Feb. Mrs Newlyvreds and those in whom anti-race suicide theory is well es tablished, will have to use some othe excuse than "the baby kept me a if they wish to neglect thei spiritual training. The Rev. John A. some ministers of the gospel who ac vise their parishioners to "leave th teething troublesome little imps- babies especially to the Baptist church, and has made every provision for their comfort, even to providing nurs- ing bottles and the like tc keep them quiet while their mothers are listen- ing to the sermon. The scheme inaugurated by the Rev. Mr. Earl is an innovation, so ;nr as Chicago is concerned, but it is not new -with him, he says, having carried it on successfully in Waterloo.. la., where he held on pastorate lor twelve years previous to coming here two years ago. Sunday morning meetings never could be relied upon strongly in the way of attendance. Sometimes there ;ince is. They can only see a world of drunken men if liquor is sold. They are religious vandals of the rights of men, and Russia itself cannot dupli- cate such an abridgement of personal privileges as these women propose. The women and preachers have gone mad over the whole thing. They think the whole universe is going to the dogs just because a little liquor is'be- ing sold in this country." In these un- qualified terras Miss Cousins paid her respects to temperance efforts, which she practically denounced as hypocri- cy and fraud. Miss Cousin's attitude is considered remarkable in view of the fact that she was for years a tem- perance leader and spoke continuous- ly on the topic. Her home is in St. Louis, where her father was prom- "inent in public life, and where Miss Cousins at one time served as United States marshall, the only instance of a woman holding that position in the United States. She was extremely ac- tive in the movement to save the cantec nfor tile soldiers of the army, and favors the bill now pending in Congress to restore thst institution. ML-5 Cousins has travelled widely and made many speeches against prohibi- tion throughout the country. At the sold at the different stores in our city. Why: don't the business men get busy and see that their clerks are members of the clerk's un- ion? They would then have an am- bassador for union made goods in their stores and at the homes of their clerks, and if the seed of un- ionism is planted in them good and strong, thore would be something do- ing when there is any mention " of sending east for anj-thing, supposing it were union made. A year or more ago an attempt was made by the Trades and Labor Council to organize the clerks, but the latter did not respond to that call. However, another attempt is shortly to lie made, and this time Id us hope success will attend the effort. The smoping concert provided by the local bartenders union last Sat- urday evening will long be remember ed by those fortunate enough to be present as one of -the toniest affairs ever held in the city.
