Political campaigns should be, fought on party public questions. Parties should se- lect as candidates men of ability and clean character and then battle for their standard bearers, because they represent great issues, not on personal grounds.

OUR POINT OF VIEW. President Brown, of the New Cefltral, says it'is worth more to a country to build agricultural colleges than a navy, which being interpreted means that the country should cheer for the farmer ploughing the ground in preference" to the iron clads plough- ing- through the waves. Edmonton civic employees held a .banquet. How would it do for the Lethbridge civic employees, who got an increase in salary to entertain their fellows, who didn't fare so well similar function? .Hon.

Such a maji would know his business ordinary man in the street. I agree and the. city would not be paying a with the writer of Dad's Council that we should get the best man all the time but in certain recent appoint- ments I fail to see that the late coun cil made any effort to obtain that end.
