Tiie.v are sending eggs through the mails in the v. S. A. now by means of the parcels post. When the postman calls lie delivers eggnog. The charter and the subway have already been settled by the city council. If they keep at it they will establish themselves as hustlers. Now Jet them go after the .power-question. It's a ..pretty sate guess that the Lethbrldge banks are marking no cheques "accepted" these days without . taking proper precautions. About $800 worth of experience-ought to count for something. '"' Down California way they are worrying, about the frost putting a crimp* in the citrus crop. Just think of that in California where Alberta people are induced to go every winter to get away from .Jack Frost Our esteemed, contemporary should at least' giy'e,the picture show houses credit for - throwing the picture of the King on the screen as a sort of curtain - raiser. That ought to keep all the _nervous ones from shouting for annexation.  ' -NOfW.what do all the super-loyal ones'who were shouting disloyalty, at Mr. Wilfrid .Laurier say about Earl .Grey. ;Tb-is-Ibeing more loyal than the IOng'must .be a terrible strain on the Cotifltl'tution-that is the loyalists' constitution. The C. P. program for 1913 announced for" the first time in our issue .yesterday" makes provision for the completion of practically all of the Lethbridge-Weyburn branch The feeling toward the big transportation company in this city is becoming more friendly, for the' attention they have turned Lethtorldgeward during the past few month's is well timed. While the city council is devoting its energies to Inducing manufactur-ersHo locate here, it should not forget that the C. P. R. improvements heTe during the coming summer Axitl put Lethbrldge securely on the map as a wholesale centre, vand every time a wholesale concern enquires about the advantages of Lethbridgcjn his iine, no time should be lost In getting into closer touch with him. Lethbridge is the first station west of Moose Jaw which occupies a really advantageous position for a wholesaler's standpoint for distribution in Southern Alberta and Eastern B. C^f? Lethbrldge' is established as a wholesale centTe for all time to come. Work on that fact. THE ANDAR The R.N.W.M.P. Yearly Record HE ANNUAL REPORT of the Mounted Police shows that thejr were instrumental in entering no less than 43,391 cases. .This, considering the small total of the nurd-, her of the force, is very satisfactory work. The result is encouraging in view of the criticism which the corps hag lately received owing to the action of a few of its units, as'was the case' in Rejgna. The record shows a large activity,, and serves to proclaim the usefulness of this time-honored, body of men in the detection of crime. If soins of the charges "lately laid against the force "were true, it would be impose sible for the work done to make such a good showing. It is evidence that, taken as *, whole, the R. N. W. M. P. deserves the confidence which has "been placed in it. for so many years. For the welfare of the prairie provinces it is trusted that each member of the'force will not fail to remember the' glorious traditions of the corps to which he belongs. But with the record shown there Is not much need for' any apprehension in this regard. . ... Satisfaction in North Lethbridge NORTH- LETHBRIDGE isolated" and naturally so, with, the 'decision arrived at for.building the jnucli desired smbway. The pec;J  jplei_ Ui^t|^aJfD.^gr^jt^e^; ^hat ..tjj^, - new freight sheds are to !be.placed*cinal matters, and have done a.good on the north side of the railway track. That the two' schemes will have much influence in' the develop- pent of the. northern part of the city there;.can be* no doubt, and we sihi cerely trust that the sanguine expectations will be realized. The expansion and development-of .North Lethbridge as. much to the advantage" of the whole -city as to the vicinity (itself. When the industrial1' %rea is utilized it will 'be another spoke in.the wheel of advancement. The people of. the north- section h^ye-iBhO/^wn^^-jinterest- in -munK deal to centralize effort in the formation of a" live 'ratepayers' association. As-fa ..complem ent'to this is the newly organized Business Men's Association." This is a good move, and will .serve to keep up the essential interest in all local' matters, i By "working in h-armony-with the association on the south side', much can he done which will be a benefit to the city as a whole, Distance Annihilator (Toronto Globe) Athabasca Landing is putting in gasworks and waterworks and is already talking to Edmonton over the long-distance telephone. No more can we speak of the Great Lone Land. Reviving the Old Argument (Moose Jaw Times) ^The idea that the Canadian farmer is going to benefit by borrowing money on his crop instead of selling it is novel, but purely illusory. The argument is-the old argument of the railway companies. eral other ; varieties. The latest to make its appeaTanre is "boiling eggs" which may fit in somewhere between just eggs and fresh eggs.

Box 1979 Phone 1291 The Question of Butter HEN A'MARKET is limited ,�enae limited gives occasion for the there is always an appreheh-v sion on the part of producers that, with a glut, prices would be re-�Kduced to such!, a point as to make the �particular industry an unprofitable one. This applies to butter which^ . in the gradual' diminishing of the quantity exported, has called for -a gooddeal of attention. t In the3ritish market the Canadian produce has, to meet with'a good deal of . competition - with the produfet' which is largely f imported -.there from, other countries, and; when' the .die-, tance of the market is considered, to' gether with this handicap, one cannot wonder that- the exports of butter has ^�fallen almost to a vanishing point. , The market at home being in -a apprehension we have alluded to, and Sonsequeiitly, there is �l lack of encouragement for the introduction ;of means' to. increase the supply. The difficulty of, dealing .with a surplus naturally. Tetards production. When -allusion1b..made, to what is really a serious state of things let It not be forgotten that if facilities for export-ing butter into the "United States were extended, as they would have .been if the reciprocity measure had been accepted, the necessary stimulus to, the industry would have been given. There would be no longer any fears of any.glut on the market ow-ing.cnot enly to its extent, but to its easy access, Restrict a, market, and you restrict an industry, and make room for those manipulations which are beneficial neither to .ihe producer nor to, the consumer. A Red Herring Trail EVADING THE MAIN ISSUE in our ' editorial remarks regarding the incident at the Band . concert, our local contemporary " adroitly draws a red herring trail by ;' rlacing its own construction on, and' 1- reading into part of them a meaning ' allots, own. From-.the trend of the editorial in-  that 'journal's columns, one 'would imagine that we were i^'strongly advocating the use of Ameri. cahffilms to the elimination of every-f ";:'th!ing British. An intelligent reading *: 'oi "our comments -will be sufficient to. dispel;;any such intention. |^\>Speaklng of American films we stiil * 1 \ hold vto; our expressed - views, that,- so- ^^,|ffi|png:;as they do not entirely take the-':^^,n?uolunai!}ii|/'c1one'' in their'exhibition,- of-'British ones, 'there is. not K ..... of anything cook-�3f i" ' international-';, senBP. sees in, Lethbridge 9-f||f#raitfer.�^;'.ir.Vwte^ap There is nothing in the way of particular exaltation of Qid Glory above the flags of all other nations in them, unless the thin-sTrinned loyalist Icfcooses so to interpret it And here it is where .the mistake is made, and where .senseless efforts are made to create racial, prejudice. � With our contemporary we should certainly like^tp see more British pictures exhibited for reasons we have given, but cannot see why American films, should be tabooed  more than those.of any other nation. The whole protest, is. picayune. Like some other Conservative journals the local morning paper has not yet got rid of that bee in its bonnet of the willingness of certain Canadians to make this country an adjunct of the UnRed States. This was used for all-It was worth in effecting a �temporary political victory. But after the excitement of the event, ana the emptiness of the cry discovered in-moments of calmness, that .idea has by now been relegated to the dust heap,, of. recollections by those outside a.rabid party press. As it has:| been remarked the public can be fook edonce or twice, but not all the time.-So.'.why endeavor to keep up the fiction? It is'an aspersion on Canadians; who are loyal no matter to what particular political party they belong. � � \ Conservative Policy (Man'jtpba Free Press) The principle upon which they desire to weld.the empire closer is that the more Great Britain buys from us the.less we should buy from Great. Britain,., and,Jhat while anytning4-Great jjBrtta^i^'jjraiits .vchich. w^e. .catt 'supplyshouth ' b*e botignt" from us, nothing that Great Britain has to sell which we need should be bought by us from Gre^at Britain, if under the stimulus of'~a high tariff it can be manufactured in* Canada.
