R. & I. It does not take a savant to forecast the policy of the �Cdmpany: in so far as this neck of the . ^lob'e "is concerned. j The announcement of the C. P. R. I subway and freight sheds plan means h great dfnl for North "IJethbridge and property holdings there are becoming valuable.. .It-would not be surprising �to .see a considerably increased pop-, ulation on that side of the track this year. .�� ' The government has decided to �establish a parcels post, it is significant that the advocates of it before the announcement was mad-e "were leading Liberals. Just.what Tereption the measure will have remains to be seen after the terms of the act are announced. There is no doubt but thRt the farmers and working men will be pleased,' and the - merchants will anxiously await results. The parcels post'hirk' been- regarded as the hand-maiden "of the mail order trade, but of coiifSe there has been no actual experience "upon which to base the fear so far as Canada is concerned. The completion of the Lethbridge-Weyburn line will give this, city through connection with Winnipeg, and a little bivd lias said that with It also will cpme the direct telegraph wire. There ahpuld be a f�H attendance of all members at the annual meeting of the Boar^d of Trade tonight. The questions to be brought up are of vital importance and the merchants and others Interested should be there when the settling is being done. It was significant that the final attack on methods'of caring for-.h^ns and ahow-UigL-Wieti*at' processes'lforj ensuring a Supply; of -efgff^wltfc,hvwould -meet �with'the-requirements,of. consumers, v Half a'-million dollars .a year it is sta�ed.; lost .to, the.pouttry keepers � in; Oregon by poor -methods � of - hand- iitton^the t8f,elP-'tf*%reatly.airtalfed' Jn pro-' -O ***** *_ ? - ' *).*>* \ portion the same may be said to be true of Canada. How this is brought iibout is shown graphically by the film, and the story is interesting as the following small detail shows: Dicky crawls under the barn, �brings out a hatful of eggs, and he takes as many more from ? -broody hens on nests. John takes several weeks' eggs to town eight miles away, when it is 104 de-.grees fn'. the shade, and the eggs are hot covered. Hatching temperature is 103 degrees. Before the eggs reach the consumer the broody hen sits on them a while, the sun shines on them a while, the railroad rides on them a while the storekeeper broods over them quite a while. "Thus," says another motto, "the producer shows 1 his love for his- best friend., the consumer, and the consumption of eggs is curtailed." The introduction of the moving picture in the "agTicultural. schools now going on would not be a bad idea if it can be carried out.

In spite of Mr. Borden's inference to the; contrary, it" looks uncommonly so, if the present proposition is to be carried out. It is difficult to get away from this impression when we consider the'arguments put forward .by his supporters. Argu-' ments which raise up difficulties against a,navy_ in'the national sense, as outlined -by tbevCa-urier policy, and weajrith'eed, go towards putting off tbl^"�vil day"  without so much as making an attempt to solve tbe diffi-. qulties conjured, up. �', 'i We read that the question of wages alone is sufficient to stand in the way i ;of ships being-, manned in Canada.'

Another interesting bulletin is entitled, "Liberals and the Empire," and is a short history, of the beginning and growth of constitutional government in Canada from an address by the Liberal leader in Ontario. " Mr. Oliver's Address (Vancouver. Sun) It was the sound Canadian-Imperialism .of Hon. Frank Oliver's address last evening ;which commended It so effectively to the' crowded audience assembled to hear him. The speech was not a political effort nor did It display. any. of the earmarks of a partizan appeal. It was a practical, common-sense, consideration of the question," how the Dominion could best assist the mother country in maintaining her supremacy on . the ocean. Many Conservatives in the hall who had gone out of curiosity and with feelings not friendly to the speaker were agreeably surprised at finding the case presented with a force and reasonableness, and a freedom from anything like party bias, which was quite unanswerable. Mr. Oliver, placed v,��ya strongly, before his heaVeis* the condition of affairs in Europe today, and pointed out- that Canada could not and must not ignore the1 fact that the prestige of the Empire depends upon the mastery of the s&a." Canada's own safety also depends ^""Britain's maintenance efher sea.oow'er."' Accordingly it "was not simply Canada's duty but her own vital security she, was serving in assisting Britain. The question for Canada to determine, and to determine rightly, was whether the policy, of Premier Borden or Sir Wilfrid Laurier,.would be of the greater . assistance' \'o. the . mother country. He pointed out that In any event Premier Borden's policy was not a finished, not a completed policy.

What, Mr. Oliver asked, was that permanent program likely to be? Would It be two fleet units, one on the Atlantic and one on the Pacific? If not, what? The defects in Premier Borden's present proposal were clearly exposed and the duty of Canada in building and equipping and manning her own ships emphasized. One point which made a special appeal to the people of British, Columbia was his representation that with the carrying into effect of the Laurier program, Canada's naval unit on the Pacific would act In concert with the fleets' Dollars Are Now Doing Almost Double Duty in Lethbridge By J.
