Irish Home Rule is Now Assured London, Jan. 20.-The Asiuitli government has got the home rule bill through its last stage of the house o! commons by an. overwhelming;, majority, it must be remarked, that would still have reached fifty or.'fiiore, bad every Irish, Tory and Nafuonal-ist member abstained from- voting, and allowed Great Britain alone to decide the (ate of the bill. With so clear a mandate of the WHEN BUYING SIOCK BE' S BIGGEST DAY IN o- Hon. Duncan Marshall's Advice to Farmer's of the Magrath District in a Magrath, Ai(a, Jan. Ifc. speech of one hour, clear, convincing and at times eloquent, the Hon. Duncan Marshall Alberta's Minister of Agriculture, gave an audience that packed the Electric Theatre last night a comprehensive understanding o� what his department was doing to benefit the farmers of the Province, and in glowing terms elevated the. farmer from the traditional furrow of drudgery, to the high pedastal of the greatest benefactor of the world. "It is now no disgi.ice to be called a farmer or a breeder of pure stock. I actually pity the creature who receives no happiness and joy in beholding a magnificent type of any of our live stock, for there is no pro-duet of the mill or workshop that can compare with those superb creations of God in beauty, symetry and nobility." This was but one of the minister's eloquent utterances, and by his earnestness one was convinced that he conscientiously believed what he was preaching, leaving a lasting impression on the minds of his aud- seenis to be a vital point.of success for home rule. Much is made in a spectacular way of opposition to the bill. There is considerable talk ot armed rebellion in the north of Ireland, hut for all the flambuoyant speeches now being made this is not Ij' . , yet at any rate � problem to be 11 esl�ent. .1. U. Ririe, who was ill, mceiiniprf the chair. The Citizens' A. McKsnny A. McKenny, principal of the Claras-holm College of Agriculture, was the next speaker. He gave a very pleasing address, emphasizing the need of agricultural education. The L'Otti century farmer must hav^ it to make the best success, said the speaker. He clearly defined the government policy of agricultural education, saying that when perfected it would be the finest system on the continent. A full course in all branches of agriculture, blacksmlthing, carpentry, etc., would be offered at each of the three colleges. When the college opened next fall he hoped to se.-' a large attendance from Magrath and Southern Alberta, as its success depended chiefly with the farmer. After Mr. .McKenny resumed his seat .Mr. Vaughn rendered very pleasingly "Angus McDonald," which made the Scotch blood of the minister tingle and he led in the applause for an encore, which was nicely given. Mr. Marshall's Address Mr.' Marshall was greeted with enthusiastic applause when he arose. Me preluded his speech with hearty congratulations on the splsndid success achieved at the short course school, and hoped that the farmers would profit by the instruction given. Continuing, the minister said in part: "The success of agriculture in this Province depends on the interest, taken by the farmers in agricultural education. For this reason we have "Salada" Tea Is " Hill-Grown" "Hill-grown" tea has the small, tender leaves- with full, rich, delicious fragrance, redolent of the spicy tropics. HUDSON BAY SALE CLOSED SATURDAY WITH MOST GRATIFY- | ING TURNOVER No one need talk much about hard times in Lethbridge these days, judging from the business being carried on by prominent city merchants, who already are predicting a prosperous year. In order to get a line on the situation the Herald casually interviewed the managers of wefl known stores, who were well pleased with the condition of trade at the present time. As one who could speak' with practical experience, Manager Hodman, of the Hudson's Day Co., pointed to the fact that last Saturday concluded the last day of a special ten day's sale which turned out to be the biggest day's business in the history of the store. Considering the fact that the temperature was hovering around zero, this success is all the more encouraging. Other places of business were equally well patronized and money seemed to he circulating freely. Incidentally in the case oE the ' Hudson's Bay Co. it may be mentioned that this store drew the attention of the public to its store news through the columns of the Herald, and the manager graciously acknowledges the value of this paper as a publicity medium. Tea is grown high up on the mountains of Ceylon-with its native delicacy and. fragrance held captive in the sealed lead packages. BLACK.

Ofjcourae, the bill will be thrown out in the house of lords. Equally, of course, if the present state of affairs continues, it will be passed, and repassed as many times as necessar by the house of commons between now and the end of the present parliament, something, more than a year hence. There is time and to passed Walter Runciman, president of the board of agriculture, lias made quite a stride in this direction this week in the development of the government's policy for the distribution of land among the small holders. One of the most important features �of the week, one in fact without which success could not. be hoped for, local mill's at the short course school, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, George Har-court, and O.

After all, farming, like every line of business, Unionist party has contributed invaluable support to the home rule cause by the needless dissensions to which it allowed itself to fall a prev. At present Lord Lansdowne, and particularly Mr. Bonar Law, arc among -the greatest of the coalition's assets both through, the fact of their relinquishment of principles which ly enter into partnership with co-operative societies. By this scheme the farmer, instead of going to the hank and undertaking to persuade the manager that a certain loan is. a proper-one, will get .the money from a cooperative society, the bank making only one loan to the society in a sum large enough to cover the small they so earnestly and vehemently de- needs of the members of the society, clared would never be dropped, and j The whole community thus becomes by the manner of their reliiiquis'n-1 responsible for the'debts of. each'of merit.

Prices were alluring; milk was selling for a better price in Calgary and Edmonton than in any city on the continent. We have a splendid market at our very doors. The four western provlnqces alone imported $11, 000,000 worth of butter from New Zealand last year. "This is a shame," declared the speaker. "Hang on to the heifer calves and help'to supply this growing demand. The climatic conditions in Alberta are unexcelled in the world for stock raising- and diversified farming. We have about 100,CWO,000 acres of land in the Province, and but 4,000,000 of that en- i we look for the the citizenship that is based on the principle of 'the survival of the fittest.' The fittest prosper and the scrubs fail. But gentlemen, when you buy stock, buy good stock. Don't buy a cow that you have- to tie its legs and horns- say nothing about its tail-and then work an hour to work a pint of milk from her. Buy a good animal and one that will fill your pail with rich milk. That's the secret of success in .dairying." ,. - The minister here'iturned his attention to the policy of the department in respect to the importation of purebred daiTy stock. They, would lay down a car of blooded animals, all tested by an expert before shipment, at any station ortjwo neighboring stations, at cost price plus, freight. This was one way .the government was willing and anxious to assist the farmers who were trying to build up a good dairy herd. The concluding pronouncements of the minister were particularly impressive. He said: "Canada wants the best brains on the farm, for the noblest of her sons come from the humble country homestead, a source cf pride to their parents and a source of strength to their nation. Seventy-five per cent, of the leaders and shap. ers of Canadian public life have issued from the rural communities, and this might be said of every commonwealth. London or New York would have- perished through their own rottenness in a single century had they not been infused with the rich, red blood of the farm., In Alberta the freedom of the plains and nobility cf the mountains fill her sons with that same red blood which has saved nations and sustained empires, and here OPPOSITION ARE MAKING IT HARD FOR GOVERNMENT OF JAPAN I Tokio, Japan, Jan. 20.-Plans to impeach the Japanese cabinet at the reassembling of the Diet tomorrow have been made by the Seiyukah, or constitutional, party, which has a majority in the lower house, but it is thought probably that an adjournment will be taken until February 5, when it is expected the budget nl be introduced. Should the opposition insist on its impeachment plans the Diet will be dissolved at once. The Cabinet, however, will remain in power until the elections, which will demonstrate the strength of the new "progressive" party, which Prince Katsura, the premier, intends to form.

E TO MR. BORDEN HAS A COLD Ottawa, Jan. 19.-Hon. R. L. Borden was confined to his residence with a severe cold today. In all probability the Prime Minister will not be able to take his seat in the House for three or four days. Paris, Jan. 20.-Since the beginning of the Balkan war, the banks of France have been watching their gold reserves very closely, with the consequence that there is a remarkable scarcity of gold coins in circulation in Paris. For a time even the largest banks have paid only about 10 per cent, of the withdrawals in gold. This works a great hardship to the sLiall customers, who, instead of getting in exchange for a cheque a few gold pieces, are obliged to pocket handfuls of silver. The post office also are paying1 silver instead ot gold. Amounts up to $200 are likely to be handed out in silver coin, with posBi-bl yone or two pieces of gold diseov. ered in the heap of white metal. STILL ON STRIKE New York, N.Y., Jan. 20.-Ten thousand girls of the 30,000 affected by the agreement on Saturday between - tiro shirtwaist and dress manufacturers and their employees rebelled at the terms of the proposed settlement, and remain on strike. The other 25,000 went to work at increased wages. Those still on strike say they arc dissatisfied with the five  to ten per cent raise in pay offered them. There still are approximately Hi5,-000 workers on strike in all branches of the garment trades. Several clashes occurred during the day between the strikers' pickets and the police.
