PREMIER TAKES RIGHT STAND. Premier Rutherford is to be eom- merwied for taking a determined atti- tude against cash subsidies for rail- ways. His plan of guaranteeing the bonds of railroads and taking a montage, far the safest and meth- od and "we >are confident that that feature of his railway policy will be warmly endorsed. the railways but we don't-j want to pay out a lot of cash to j get them. By guaranteeing the bonds' railroads will be enabled to raise money to extend their lines and the j .province will be protected in thepos-j 'session of a mortgage. i consequently the .which numerous and sxCvlJcnt, up to the best advantage. Calgary profipcrisjr, along with Lethbr and the Herald's number ought to convince people: that ihnt prosperity js duo to substantial reasons. garyX growth in recent years has bjoen wonderful, but with it all, that city has had time to curefuTly lay good foundations, to build fine busi- ness blocks and warehouses, beauti- ful homes and magnificent' public buildings, "Prosperous Calgary" mi- presses you along those lines and many others. The Western route for shipping- Al- berta's grain, promises to be a bon- anza for the farmer. Board of Trade should agitate for a direct daily mail serv- ice for Bow Island, Grassy Lake and other points between Taber and Med- icine Hat. It means much for our business men. Edmonton has a power scheme for the future. The source is at Grand Eapids on the Athabasca. 160 miles north-west of Edmonton. Lethbridge is better favored than that. Some day, the water power going to waste in the .Belly river, will be used to generate electrical energy for this city. The sooner the Intercolonial Rail- way is taken out of political hands the better for Canada, the govern- ment and the ATaritirae provinces. FiRNIE'f LOCK-UP. (Ftniie Free Press.) An incident which sounds frigUfsl atrocities a Siberian pri- son occurred right hero in the midst an enlightened. Curiuliaii com- munity. The harrowing details of this horrible outrage are as- follows: During the recent extremely cold weather ;i prisoner was confined in the local jail, which, by the way, is a well ventilated single board rudely constructed in great habte im- mediately after the fire. This unfor- tunate .man, being shackled with leg irons, .was considerable disadvan- tage in the "survival- of the fittest" fight amongst the seven prisoners for a strategic position near the one stove, and had Ms ankles frozen. None but the prisoners being pres- ent, it is doubtful whether the pitia- ble story of their sufferings will ever be chronicled, the only outward evi- dence of their bitter struggle being, the shattered remain? of the furni- ture broken in the conflict. We regret have to publish such a harrowing story, yet the most cold- blooded humanity demands that the misguided offender of the law should be treated' like a hu- man being. This state of affaijg must be reme- died, at once. Annual Stock-taking Discount Sale this week Take advan- tage of the Bargains we Offer.

Surely this announcement should appeared in the joke column. Cawtbra ilulock is a very ambitious lad it is true, but he is notable ouly because his grandmother left him a million dollars. It is true also that he is a son. of a father who of .the ablest men Sir Wilfrid Laurier had in his cabinet. Young Mulock Jcnows nothing of public af- fairs and never will because he is not that sort, If he wants to get to the Senate itvls merely because he would like tacked in front of his name. But the talk is all a joke for he isn't old enough to qualify as a Sen- ator. A man. must be 35 before he can reach the upper chamber. The last of the deferred Federal elec tions takes place this week in the tions takes place this -.veek' in-the Yu- kon. rrhere are four candidates in the field. Jos. A. Clarke. Geo. Black, a lawyer of Dawson; 3Ir. F. T. Cone- don, ex-commissioner of the Yukon, who was'the Liberal candidate in 1904; and Mr. Robert Lowe., a busi- ness man of White Horse. Mr. Lowe and Mr. Congden. are running as Lib- erals; Mr. Clarke and Mr. Black as Conservatives. Side BEST CLIMATE ON EARTH. There is possibly more or less spec- ulation among outsiders who are in- terested but :not entirely familiar the conditions in Sunny Southern Al- berta as to the effect of "the present cold weather on stock feeding on the -ranges. This is the country where most fanners and the tig rancher turn their .stock loose to shift for themselves -both summer and winter. Three years ago, when we had the hardest winter known, to this dis- trick, many of the big cattle owners -were caught unprepared and suffered heavy loss. This loss was not so much, the result of extreme cold, but was principally due to the fact that there -were irequent storms, then a thaw, causing the snow to crust on _top, and while horses would' paw- down through this crust to the feed, the cattle would dig- at it with their noses until they became sore and then give up the struggle, and most of the ranchers had very littler if any feed put so they were not in a posi- tion, to get the herds in and care for them. It had been ten or twelve 'years since they had anything- like such a wlnteiv and they were not ex- pecting it.- The next summer, most of them put up some hay for use in case of emergency, which emergency has not come as of the ran- chers put up some hay every season, then corral what cattle they intend to. market and feed them the prairie hay to put them in prime condition, (while the farmers m most of the states are shoveling into their steers for' market high priced corn, etc.) This winter, we have had only a few inches of snow, which has simply covered the ground and remained where it fell, with no-crusting to pre- vent easy access to the food under- -neath; There has been a little ex- tremely coid weather, the past ten but no wind, and farmers and ranchers make the statement that all stock is wintering well. It is hard to estimate the value of the .snow coming as it has, to the country in general. It will help to maJke good grass, and also greatly bsnefit the winter-wheat, and put fall breaking in better shape for spring "It was 20 below zero at Minneapolis ..on. Sunday night, 48 below at Winni- -peg, 44, below at Hegina, 36 at Qu- 'Appelle, with storms in some of the districts" and snow drifts to wade through. Quit your kicking, old man Think of the fine weather we have had y practically all the winter while peo- elsewhere in the Northwest were huddling in out of the cold and then think of the fine weath- in store for you. practi- "cally the balance of the winter, think of the crops that have put the coun- try, in shape to stand most any kind -of, a- winter, and boost for Sunny Southeni Alberta all the time. OUR POINT OF VIEW, iTJJo Calgary Herald has just a ''Prosperous Calgary" number, which in every way, is highly credit- "able to that enterprising paper. printed on the best book paper LIFE IN B. C. (Tobacco Plains Correspondence to Fernie Ledger) The cold snap put the ice cream parlors out of business in Elko, and it Is reported that the whiskey in still frozen in Fernie and that the boys have to take It in chunks. It makes us smile to see the. way our business is building up and it would make you smile to see us "jump ing around like a pan of pop corn after more. 3am Hilburn of Kalispel was in EL ko this "week wearing a hard boiled hat and picture' vest. George H. Scott and family of Boosviile, the Big Red AprJe country passed, through .Elko on their way to Xelson where they have rented a furnished house. This week's storm "is the worst and the coldest ever seen in Elko by priest or devil. Be good to your grocer and feet will never be blistered on the pavements of that southern city com- monly kn6wn as Hades. One cause of John Burns' popular- ity with the masses is his ready hu- mor. 3Ir. Burns was once address- ing a meeting- a, river side, and when he VTAS persistently interrupted by one of the audience another called out: we chuck him in the ri- ver, "Ah. said Mr. Burns. I must remind you-that under a section of the Local Govern- ment Act of 1889 it is a punishable offence to pollute a river."

(Fernie Pree Press.) Tlie town is infested with noboes and criminals of greater or less de- gree, who are defying the local au- thorities in their efforts to rid the community of their obnoxious pres- ence. These gentry know full wel that under existing conditions the local police are as there is no jail accommodation for this motley mob, and positively refuse to lea-ve town. The prevalence of hold-ups, burg- laries and robberies is the direct re- sult of this influx of undesirables, and our police commissioners should immediately put it within the power of the police to rid the town of this element, which is a menace ,to the life nnd property of our citizens.
