Now that the secretaryship of the Board of Trade is practically vacant it might be well if the Board of Trade united with the City Council in ser- iously considering: the question of a i Publicity Commissioner. The city is growing- so fast that the work of the Board of Trade almost requires the entire attention of one man. The Board, at present, has not 'the funds, to fix'a salary that would be an induce mentr to a. man to give his entire Watch the rush for thc< Senate va- cancy in Manitoba. When the Canadian Bank of Com- merce pays a foot for property in Lethbridge it is an evidence that the financial institutions believe iLetii- bridge is V city with a. tood future. Political lines are not drawn so tightly in Nelson that the members of one party cannot appreciate the merits of individual mem- bers of the other party. W. A. Macdonuld, K. C., one of the Conservative leaders, in the B. C. city, was jjivon a send off prior to his departure to Vancouver, and the complimentary address presented to him, was signed by. amongst others, the Nelson Liberal Association. That's the spirit that should always animate polj.ticiaiis. The lumber trade is simply astonish- .ing. The C. P. R. is supplying cars reasonable time. Although the nights'are cold the days warm up with a bright sunshine-enabling builders to continue their work most of the time. The large amount of mail that has been distributed here during the Christmas week exceeds that or nay previous year. REFUSE COLORED GUESTS. Ottawa, Dec. colored vaudeville actors, playing this week at a local theatre, have been refused accommodation at the Windsor hotel, and the interesting question has been raised whether any hotel has the right to refuse to take in guests who are respectable and can pay their Taber Taber, Dec. body pf Frank Sinoot, the unfortunate youhcr man who lost his life by drowning in the Belly River about the first of last July, was found Monday last by a time to the service. With the co-oper t coal Cashed ashore by the ation of the City Council the prob- lem might be solved by agreeing to assist the Board of Trade in paying, say, a salary of or to a competent man. An arrangeraent might be made for this official to do some city work, for instance making the assessment, in addition to acting as Publicity Commissioner.' To his might also be added the posi- tion of secretary of the Agricultural Society, which position Major Burnett has resigned. The sal- ary attached to this position js nearly three hundred, dol- lars a year- The combined positions, it will be seen, would bring a com- fortable income to a- capable and pro- gressive man. The city needs a permanent publi- city who will give close study of the resources of the city and district and acquaint himself .thoroughly with, its needs. This offi- cial-would be invaluable in entertain- ing- prominent visitors bringing to their attention, the main, features of -city and surrounding country. -could, also handle all the publieiti "literature, which ax the present time has to be compiled by members of the Board who are too busy with their own. affairs to give much- atten- tion to such important work. In the matter of publicity the commissioner contribute articles on Leth- bridge and district to papers lu the .United States and Eastern Canada and in-that way keep ILethbridge in the public -eye. Until recently a great many people in the East and across the line knew practically nothing about Hethbridge while Saskatoon. Calgary, Begina, Edmonton and Prince Albert, owing to an energetic campaign, tingled-in their ears all the time.

"If the Alberta government decides to appoint an cflrtra cabinet minister it should- consider the importance of selecting a strong and resourceful jnan from the extreme south. The Herald has no desire to raise any sectional issues but it believes the' country known as Southern Al- berta should have a cabinet minister -acquainted with its needs and eager to promote its best interests.
