OUR POINT .OF VIEW It is rather amusing to have the Herald's news features criticized by v. paper that falls down hard on nine cur of ten happenings every lawful day of the week. Dr. Beatiie Neshitt is dying and the alleged wrecker of the Farmers' Bank will escape the ordeal of facing j the courts. Dr. Nesbitt probably had I >;o intention of wrecking the bank, j He took a chance and lost out. The solution of the tenants' vote seems to rest in the fixing of a minimum assessment and residence in the same house from the time the assessment is made until the municipal elections. While it is true that the $2500 ciuaii-fication clause shuts out outsiders from being commissioners, the Herald is quite confident that the right kind of men can ibe got at home for these positions, and there will be no dearth of material. While It. is true that the year past was a quiet-one in many respects the statistics show that Lethbrldge made very gratifying commercial progress. It is too bad to discourage the ambitions of Stafford people, to become part of the city. The village authorities should present their case to the city in the strongest possible light. Because a man owns $2500 worth of real estate won't necessarily qualify him to be a commissioner of the city. Brains and executive ability are also necessary, i It may be possible to boost too much but it is highly improbable. It is much better to boost than knock. Of that fact there are not many opposing opinions. fl When th^ honor is being passed around in connection with the big fight, for reduced freight rates, don't forget that it was Mahlon Cowan, counsel for Alberta, who did all the good work. The Magrath Pioneer has appeared under ne'w ownership and if the re cord for the first issue is maintained the busy town will have a publicity medium worthy of its hustling people. That nervy Monoline operator at Macleod who forsook the peaceful oc cupation of setting type to become a post office operator, was given five1 years in the penitentiary. There is no one but McDonald who will think the sentence too severe. Need for Concentration THE LETTISH of J. R. Allan, published in our columns, though somewhat forcible.serves to em-puasize the necessity of the present Ohio council giving its attention and energies towards making the most of the possibilities we possess for creat-iug cheap power. There is one point, in the writer's remarks v.iich is well worthy of careful consideration, and that is a concentration of efforts towards developing the industries we already possess, and for which the locality is best adapted. This is with regard to milling. Hitherto, the industrial policy has been somewhat divergent, and there has been no systematic endeavor to obtain that to which our natural resources particularly lend themselves. There is a good deal of truth. In what Mr. Allan says with regard to encouraging the milling men, and there is something to ponder over the fact that a large quantity of wheat is allowed to be shipped away from the district without being utilized for manufacturing flour. The production of cheap power is the first thing, and, when this important factor for manufacturing purposes is � obtained, let the policy be one working on a campaign for the intro duction of specific manufactories. In th's the milling industry and that for utilizing flax straw should hold first place. The experiences of the past ought to he guides for the future, and shsxild teach the lessen of concentrating and centralizing on the bringing in those industries for which the district is not only naturally adapted, but which, in the circumstances, are bound to flourish, and in its train further^extend and give facilities for developing the raw material grown. "Why Not for UNDER THE above caption the Winnipeg Free Press introduces in an editorial the report of an address delivered by Lt.-Col. Sir Nekton Moere, agent general for Western Australia before the Imperial Mission on the subject of "Empire Unity ia Defence and Commerce." The w'ords of tht� speaker are equally applicable to the question of the Canadian navy and are, therefore, worthy of reproduction. They are as follows: "Modem British naval policy was to concentrate her naval force more and more in home and contiguous waters. In time of waT this would leave Australia open more or less to attack from any Pacific power which might, in the shifting arrangements of international politics, be allied with i he Empire's European foes, or might I'hoose such a time to dispute Australia's local conditions. Australia's naval policy, dictated by Imperial wisdom and genuine patriotism, waB not so much to relieve the British taxpayer as to strengthen the British Krapire. (Cheers.) The tendency of the contributory policy might easily be to relieve the British taxpayer without strengthening the Empire. And that "served no Imperial purpose. Canada Too" As an example of the existence of this tendency, lie-mentioned that only a few 'weeks ago the British government asked the New Zealand government to permit the stationing of their 'Dreadnought' cruiser in home waters rather than in the China Seas, as was first intended. So the -weak link in Imperial organization, the defence, furnished in the outer Empire, in the seas which surrounded Australia and New Zealand, was not strengthened by the New Zealand contribution, which, on the contrary, was used to provide something which would other-wise have to be provided by the British taxpayer. But Australia's local naval scheme involves another important principle, the enlistment of the sympathy, the sentiment, and the actual co-operation of the people in the Imperial cause, and in its main element, and guarantee of Imperial unity, Imperial defence. This a mere money contribution would never do." (Cheers.) The matter of protecting our' Pacific coast against the contingencies mentioned 'by the speaker is one of as much importance to us as the guarding of the seas around Australia is to the Commonwealth. But this side of the problem has not been considered in the short-sighted naval policy of the present government. The Treaty of Ghent IT IS in the general fitness of things that Earl Grey should occupy the position of president of the British committee for the celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Ghent. The treaty ratified on Dec. 24, 1814, was the outcome of the last time in which the people of the two great English , speaking countries clashed in war. It was a conflict in which Canada was directly interested, and that a man who 8�ntIinent or each :to-( yrhrds the pther. If anything is needed to bind this sentiment more strongly, the celebration of the century of peace will serve an important purpose. It will mark an epoch in the history of the world, and will celebrate an era of progress and development on this continent which could not have happened if international jealousy and suspicion were continually present. No better evidence of the relations between the two Anglo-Saxon races can be advanced than the attitude of the best element of the American nation towards the claim of England with regard to the Panama Canal. Free from certain political influences President Taft has given way to popular opinion, and is anxious that the 'matter should be settled by arbitration. Though the reference may not ultimately be made to the Hague tribunal there is reason to believe that the settlement will be In the hands of a body on which both parties may agree, If minor matters count for anything, the difficulties placed on the' landing of Mylius, the libeller of our j Ktn.i!, show that American sympath-! ies are with the British people. It' is well for both nations that this should be so, and, hand in hand, they will be a mighty factor in ensuring the peace and progress of the future. Are Trust Prices Making You Rich? (Morning Albertan) With oats selling nt lti cents a bushel compared to 40 cents in Seattle, the western farmer cannot appreciate the argument of Mr. Bennett and his supporters in favor of the defeat of reciprocity in the interest of the grain grower. Sharp Practise (Morning Albertan) When the C. P. R. quoted a freight rate between Edmonton and Leth-bridge almost 10 years before such a line was built and then showed what a reduction had been made in freight rates since that time, it used methods which are not usual in ordinary business life in Canada. Not Consistent (New York Tribune) The suffragettes of Glasgow cry "Cowards'" at the young students who smash their windows; but at least the latter are not so cowardly as to claim immunity on the ground of sex. Is there any courage in women committing crimes and misdemeanors to vindicate their equality with men, and then claiming immunity on the ground that they are not men but women? The Western Rates Inquiry (Winnipeg Free Press) It is satisfactory to have continued evidence in the reports of the proceedings before the Railway Commission at Ottawa that the cas-e for the people of the west against the railways is in competent hands. Counsel for the people are sticking tenaciously to the point at' issue, and forcing the fighting. They are not to be caught by the elaborate attempts of the able counsel for the .railway companies to divert the argument away from the question. The point at issue is simply this that there should be equalization of the railway rates in Canada, no varia-Uon from the standard being allowed until the railway companies have set forth facts in justification of it. The whole scale of rates in the west has been shown to be higher than the rates in the east. Is theTe any justification for this? The railway corporations have at last been forced "In. to the position of having to prove that there is justification, failing which, the duty of the Railway Commission will be to compel the equalization of the rates. - Playing the Favorites '(Montreal Herald) President Mosher, of the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Employees, declares that the government is putting no pressure upon the C. P. R'.' to take back freight clerks following the recent strike. At the same, time, say-Mr. Mosher, the G. T. R.. was forced to take back its striking machinists, "because that was a Liberal construct, ed road." Surely the government har not started "playing favorites" among our big railway companies. Can't Help It This trick of making errors Is one we cannot shelve; And now and then the 'best of men Still write 'i?'l9I2. Not For Him ! Two men were crossing the Delaware river on a ferry boat. They were watching intently a big dredging barge that was sending its mammoth scoops under the water and bringing up tons of mud. One says: "Mike, wouldn't yer like to be workin' over there on that mud-digger?" "Yes," says Pat, "but, begorra O'id hate to be one of the fellows under the water that's filling up them shovels."

"Why not? I come under class A." "What do you mean by class A?" "Why, the people who ran the last campaign have three classifications arranged-always a Democrat, generally a Democrat, and occasionally a Democrat. I waB always a Democrat, don't you see?" Not Esparanto Greyson-"I'm going to have my neighbor's fowls arrested. The roosters wake me up every niornitig at three or four o'clock, and spoil my rest." Bro'wnson-"But there is no law which authorizes the arrest of fowls." GTeyson-"Well, anyway, there is a law which forbids the use of fowl lauguage." Lessons in Love J_ "She says she thinks she could learn to love me." "You do not look happy." "It is going to be expensive. Had her at the theatre last night, with a little supper afterwards. The fii'st lesson cost, me $25." ......Didn't Want it Andy McTavish was "no feelin- just well," so he went to the doctor and stated his complaints. "What do you drink?" demanded the medico. "Whiskey." "How much?" "Maybe a bottle a day." "Do you smoke?" "Yea." "Hosv much?" "Two ouhces a day." "Well, you give up whiskey and tobacco altogether." Andy took up his cap, and in three steps reached the door. "Andy!" called the doctor; ,"you have not paid for my advice!" "A'hm no takin' it," snapped Andy, as he shut the door behind him. A Dissenter "This here Wombat is a pugnacious fellow." "So?" "He would go to great lengths '<' get up an argument." "How now?" "Now he's siding with the Turks." Well Done, George! It had been their first separation, and during' one week the young husband had sent his dear littlo wife ten letters, fifteen picture postcards, and four telegrams. Why, then, this touch of coldness in her welcome upon his return? "Dearest," he whispered-as ho drew he-r to his manly bosom, "what is wrong? What have I done to upset j my little ducksy-wucksy?" "Oh, George," she replied in broken tones, "you didn't send me a kiss in your seventh letter!" George thought like lightning for a moment before he replied. "I know I didn't petsy, but i hail, steak and onions that night for supper, and you wouldn't like me to Idas you after eating onions, would you?" A Foretaste "My dear girl," exclaimed an elderly lady, "do you know that the man you are intending to marry drinks heavily and gambles?" "Yes, I know; I am going to marry him to reform him." "Listen to me, my girl. Try one experiment before you do that." "What experiment?" "Take in a week's washing to do and see how you like it." Sure to Succeed "They say that Grcatbrane's new tragedy received an ovation on its production." "Yes. ' Couldn't very well have been otherwise." "How's that?" "He gave free tickets to all the undertakers -in the town. They all came, and when they saw men, women and children killed by the score in each act, the enthusiasm aroused by their professional instinct knew no bounds, and their applause almost lifted the roof off. Greatbrane is clever enough, if his tragedy isn't." Message Missing The teacher was giving her pupils instruction in the elements of psysio-logy, and among other things told them that whenever they moved an arm or a leg it was in response to a message from the brain. "The brain always sends a message from your arm or your; leg whenever you wish to movo the particular mem* ber," she explained.. At last a misoneyious boy aroused ber auger by nls apparent inattention to the lesson. "Hold out your hand!" she exclaimed. The boy did not move. "Why don't you hold out your hand?" asked the teacher. "I'm wailing for the message from my braiajB* said the lad, THE TURKEY, THE CRANBERRIES, THt.
