A new map of Europe is altogether conceivable, whether this will be brought about jn a peaceful manner or through force of arms remains to lie* seen. Signs', however, are not want ing that reasonableness will in the cud prevail, and if amicable arrange- ments, to place the contending Issues on a basis of permanent settlement are the outcome of the conference, then the hope for the time when all international disputes will be settled by arbitration cannot be long distant. A strong; man in the conference j will do much to bring its deliberations j to a successful termination, and remains for the world to see if the opportunity will produce one. BETWIXT AND BETWEEN J A Southern; Alberta fair � tO BETTER PLAN for producing the greatest' possible benefit; with the least possible expense, 'has been outlined than that of amalgamating the different local fairs into" i ;one great central exhibition. Fairs are held for two principal reasons, to ; igive a stimulus -to local industries and enterprises, and to obtain the essential publicity for any particular district. So far as holding local fairs is con-; icernedj they fall short in both objects1 : .aimed at. It cannot be denied that ; /there is a certain encouragement glv-en by the ordinary fair held in a'town, "but, owing to the fact that rivalry and competition are limited in their scope .from the nature of the fair, they are, necessarily, curtailed. A central fair, � therefore, in the larger field it offers^ must tend to give a greater impetus ;to emulation, and consequently, calls ; .ibi,greater,,e."i?.r.?jes. . ,'JV With regard" to publicity it would 'ho evident that local shows are as a ''vale visited in the bulk by local peo- .pie. and anything in the way of ad--verusement is accordingly circumscribed. A laTge exhibition, brought about by tlie co-operation of different towns,, and held In a central area cannot fail to draw to it a. larger variety of sightseers, "who, by comparison, will be better able to gauge the possibilities of any particular district to which they are strangers. In these advantages each district shares alike, and money and energy expended cannot fail to bring a bigger Toward......  - This is not a matter which concerns Lethbridge alone. Its claim for holding the'monster fair here is due to the possession of special facilities in the matter of accommodation. The venue does not count for a great deal, the benefits must flow alike to all who participate in the exhibition held. It is a straight business-like proposition, which, is held out for the subsidiary towns to gTasp, and If the question is flirty thought out and considered it cu! be admitted that no better scheme, can ^he devised than the holding'of a 'central exntbitioi.; which in its magnitude and importance cannot fall to achieve the success which, it must be admitted, can only he half obtained through efforts in individual localities. The Children's Aid ON MONDAY evening next, at 8 o'clock, there will be held a meet-ing in the auditorium of the �"Central school, which will be addressed by Mr. Chad wick, Superintendent rof Delinquents and Neglected Children. This meeting is specially coh-,-vened for the purpose of creating a local organization for furthering what ;imay truly be regarded a benevolent �'scheme. Such an organization was in existence in Lethbridge three years ago,  .hut, unhappily, through lack of the necessary interest, was allowed to .lapse. It is now proposed not merely ' to revive it, but to order it on lines 'which cannot fall to further the plans- - * for which these organizations have Vheen designed in cities where they' -;;�xi8t. ;:' In the many humane schemes devis-*d none holds a greater place than rthat which gives-its attention to helpless mortals who, being victims of cirr eumstances outside their control, are ' not responsible for their forlorn con-.-.dition. The attitude of the world ffwlth regard to these has considerably .'� changed, and instead of  being con-'signed to workhouses and branded ' i with the contumely attached to -waifs /and strays, means are sought tore-� move the stigma, and to give them all the elevating influences which �their more fortunate brothers and / sisters share. Early influences count a great deal in the making of character, and in this the Ideal home plays a large part. To approach this as near as possible is the intention of the Detention Home. Here children are taught to forget that they are merely objects of charity. There are no distinctive cadgesin the way of uniforms, to denote that they are a class in themselves. The same applies to homes for- delinquents, -which have wisely taken the place of reformatories. The humane method has been proved to he. the hest, and this serves to bring out the original good which is found in every human being. -These boys and girls are trained to become useful members of society,, and, consequently, are prevented from being a ine'nace. to it, 'which might otherwise happen should they be suffered either to continue in neglect, or to come out with that resentment which -harsh discipline is bound to engender. . It is a work of regeneration -which "the people of Lethbridge will be called on to assist it. This can be accomplished by the formation of a local committee to interest Itself in the work, ahd to aid in bringing to light cases which require salutary care. The mission is a noble one, and merits every encouragement. Let this be shown (by a strong and representative gathering on Monday to' further .out the scheme for the Children's Aid. Spectator Shafts! One is almost at a loss at' times" to' see the 'point;    I! happened in a local theatre; the other day. I.V just happened to happen, but it seemed almost canny. The popular soloist who .enlivens the waits with the latest New, York hits, had just sung that, sweet-, little ditty, entitled "Way ..Down in Dixie Land," made famous b>" Miss Verna Felton of the Allen Players. Immediately after was flashed on the screen ."The Plague of. theCHyi'' : Of -course-It was'the name of the next film, hut: one might almost be inclined when the gink in the next room sings it at 2 p.x. to to think it was a new name for the popular Southern rag.  �  A local legal light sprung one in a crowd the other day which should go down in the musty .pages of hiBtory. Here it is: "Talk about knowing how to charge up an expense.account; I saw one the other day that, puts any padded expense sheet completely to tho brush. It was a bill of costs in connection with a funeral, and came in along with the papers of an estate which was being wound- up. Now, if there wasn't everything on that bill of costs that Dr.- Cook himself could have thought up, I want to know; .But the shock came In one of the- last items which read, 'Six-pall beargrs, at $1.50 each----$0.00.' It takes a" man of real class to make money, out of a funeral like that. Wonder if the pall bearers were paid the union wages." a  * Here we -go again: . (Prom the Shippensburg News) Mr. Amos Hampshire butchered his hogs last week; also Mt. Means. --/ Where was the town cop?    And by now, all those -New Year's resolutions have'been shattered and broken, making ready for. another crop next January.  * � Dad's council- got busy -this'week and held their first conversazione. All got away strong and expect to be able to keep up the gait to the first quarter at least. The new' bunch of administrators stacks up pretty strong, but haven't struck their stride as yet, and for a while they 'will be bothered by a few things they didn't know they were bumping- up against when they ran for office. The little financial muddle in which Lethbridge flndB itself along with Ottawa, Calgary and a few other Canuck burgs, has the whole council sitting up nights, and some o� the^lngs they say about Canadian- banking institutions with tightwad tendencies are not fit for reproduction, � Mayor HaTdie has a way with him He is one of the "I-want-to.-know" sort; and he keeps the city officials on the isprod and working overtime answering, questions which the chief magistrate' seems to find necessary in his busi ness. He's a regular trip hammer to work, but some times some of his colleagues go meandering off into some side issues and His Worship becomes so engrossed with the difficulties of the new proposition that he forgets just where he was at, and as tempus fugit with alarming regularity tKe city council meetings promise to be long drawn 'Out affairs, so that it is good business to have them start in the afternoon' in. order that the midnight hour may see an adjournment. The new mayor does not like to criticise the old council, hut he does take an awful jolt at some of the situations which have arisen. Just a case of the system though, not the fault of the men behind the guns. The nertv cflty' charter has:been the bone of contention so far this year, and if ever a new city charter is bcrne into life in this city, it's a ten to one shot that none of the members of the present council want to have anything to do with it. They have had more trouble with :it already than a hen wdth a flock of ducklings that have. a. penchant for taking a swim. However it must be said that the 1913 council has got along swimmingly so far, and will shortly.get squared away in dead earnest,. . .';: " .-"" * * * ,:" �'.

A Thriving Industry (Medicine Hat News) Just think of Medicine Hat having thirteen hundred children attending school. That is going some and it is going to keep..the-school hoard busy providing accommodation if the increase keeps Up at this rate. Very inconsiderate . (Winnipeg Tribune) Nasty Grit papers continue to publish what Premier Borden, Mr, Hazen, Mr. Foster . and- Sir Charles Tupper said-in 1010 in opposition to the suggestion of making a direct contribution to the British navy. ShouldjHave Good Effect (Montreal Witness) i It seems probable that. Mr. Oliver's formal protest against the use of the national anthem for a party demonstration will have the effect of lessening that formlof Insolence. For insolence it is for! one party li> challenge? the other In-that way to eelebrati: its policy, and indolence has for the past twenty-five y4ars underlain the constant assumption on the part of one party that the" other was disloyal. To require- Mr. Oliver to'get il-p,' and thus, by implication, shout the disloyalty of his party, was an act to be resented- one which, if persisted In, could be easily brought to an end by the Liberal party putting its opponents through this] liturgy at the end of every Libera^ oration as regularly as the doxologytj is sung at the end of every Psalm.'- The Peace Conference if- T-HE SUSPENSION of the Peace-; ' Conference in London appears , to point that negotiations for -,the peaceful settlement of the issues which brought on the Balkan cam-t'^palgn have, so far failed.
