OUR POINT OF VIEW Domestic science is being innugor-urated in the Lethbridge schools. Arc the school trustees providing for greater domestic felicity in future? President. Bit] Taft advises Presi dent-elect Wilson to keep in the middle of the road and avoid the edges. Much depends on which road, the straight and narrow, or --! The city has a damage suit and a possible suit to recover paid taxes on its hands. It has been noised abroad that the city is in funds after a year of poverty. The new city charter provides for the election of the hospital commission. It is to be 'hoped that when election comes along there will be no dearth of suitable candidates. It is an honorary position and should call forth the best, A despatch says that a young lady who bit her tongue off while skating not long since has received 2267 offers of marriage since the unhappy .accident. Now-it couldn't be p. coincidence that the city signed a lease for a roller rink yesterday? Stafford Village won out, which is nother proof, that the old adage, Try, try again," Is just as true in nodern times as when Bruce gained courage from; the spider's trails. The city water pressure will come under the notice of a special commlt-:ee. It is time somothing was done ibout it The reports of disastrous fires in other western cities should be a warning:. A stitch in time. Aid. McCambly says that it 1st time to get down to brass tacks on the industrial question. He's right. Talking and writing letters will never land industries. It is personal contact that counts. C. J. Eckstorm has made the city a magnanimous offer to provide a city market. If the citizens only realize what this means, they will havo gone far to making it � success. Boost the good idea along. Everybody boost and help the farmer as well as the consumer. It js worth half a dozen small Industries if properly supported. Every farmer it adds to the district is an industry in himself. Persuade Mr. Burns HE CITY COUNCIL has before J_ it a unique opportunity of exercising its persuasive powers in the matter of inducing Pat Burns to build a second plant in Lethbridge. Irrespective of the provident nature 1 of the scheme in guarding against the disabilities which a loss by fire would entail, and which, no doubt, must ap-X. peal to a man with the perspicacity of Mr. Burns, there are other and more cogent reasons which may be >, urged in advancing the proposition. These, which are well within the f knowledge of the members of the \ council, carefully prepared will fur-nish a powerful brief. Therefore no efforts should be spared in striking the iron vj'hfle it is hot. While sympathizing with Jlr. Burns in the loss he has sustained, and regretting the occurrence, yet so far as influencing him in his future pians it is impossible to get away from the fact that, owing to circumstances, the time is propitious for approaching him. A deputation to him would not be out of place, and the council can-no\. do better than select a. body of practical men to meet Mr. Burns, and place . before him facts and figures which would help towards inclining him to meet favorably the proposition put before him". . ^ This is a matter which needs taking up seriously, and the opportunity should not "be allowed to die. A Timely Crusade pry HE NEW CRTJSaDE started to j Ji^-raise the status of "business" i* must appear strange to those lv>o dwell in a democratic country Ssuch as ours. But that such a step is Necessary in Old England is abund-- antly evident, and it will be better for the nation as a whole should old prejudices against what is known as "trade" be entirely removed. Napoleon was pleased to'call the English a nation of shopkeepers, and when he Blade this observation he, no doubt, /was aware of the sting.it carried. What^ Mr. Morgan says that those who have passed through, the public schools and the universities emerge from these institutions more or less successfully educated, but nearly all, with a few brilliant exceptions, thoroughly learned to look down on ^business, is perfectly true. When thoroughly analyzed the pride is'a false ope, and ought-by now to be thrown aai.de together;� with other old-time prejudices. ^Whether; ishe' crusade will prove successful is another matter. An attempt- was made7 some time bade- to impress on the youth of England,the dignity of labor. For this purpose Ruskin College was founded at Oxford, wliere undergraduates went in for manual labor, such as road making. The institution however cannot be said to have been a success. Tradition is a mighty big thing to kill, particularly one which has been handed down from generation to generation within the sacred walls of the time-honored- public schools. However necessity will be in the end compelling, -an.d considering the excessive competition and the 'high educational requirements demanded for entrance into the public services the young men 'trained In public school and university will -have to sink thetr "pride" and -embark on fresh fields. '. It only remains' for public opinion to b'e changed, and the rest- will ;be easy, and as soon as it is conceded that it is not below.the dignity of a "gentleman'' to enter into business the better it will he, not only for the, advancement of commercial pursuits, but for removing .that quality known as "prtgglshness" which otherwise sets off thoue factors 'in the moulding of character, .wnich a "public school" training- ensures. lisp Scoring Earl Grey IT IS BEA1�LY ridiculous to note the caustic comments made on 'the statement of Earl-Orey re/ garding the reciprocity measure by certain of the Conservative press. This, appears all the more so, when the utterances, of Mr. Austen Chamberlain have not met with any adverse criticism. If any public man needed a calling over the coals for observations which reflected on the loyalty of half the people of the Dominion, it was Mr. Chamberlain, who has adopted a strange method in endeavoring to plant the seeds of a great Imperialism of which he is the self-proclaimed apostle. yJUs uncalled for remarks naturally evoked a counterblast, and no man 'was more fitted to take up the cudgels oh behalf of the Canadian people than Earl Grey. As a man who had lived five years in'this country, and who has occupied a position bringing n'im, in contact with all its leading ministers, and men foremost in public affairs, Earl Grey would have sig-:rtijny failed in a duty had he chosen .......... to remain Bilent. >' ^he argument put forward that it -> was" inadvisable of a man who had .^gn^y^or^general tp express bis qu^ions'1onvthe\,r.eciprocity poljcy, in &i$$$a$*jt&&W�d'a sympathy w!^'*?'^1}g8,iion,,\whlch was a subject oj '|BC%t^oy!r�'y Vdtiring the time he heldhOfpc'e.;here;�is on,a par with the (dc8ma5op once' "a, colonel always a ' * *�fWfSfSs! Iff ' colonel.. Having relinquished his duties as governor-general, Earl Grey immediately, reverted hack to the status bf_,a private citizen, and aB such, it. was perfectly legitimate i for him VtovgiTO expression to opinions for'.controverting statements which would serve' to give this country an unenviable reputation amongst the other members of th� Empire. \%. is 'belittling the reputation of a man who was singled out for bis position here for his ability, and the possession of. those qualities which particularly fitted him to undertake the. responsibilities of so important a duty, to say. that probably his statement . was actuated largely by his personal feelings towards Sir Wilfrid Laurier. This is an insinuation as petty iia the- arguments put forward against the stand Earl Grey has chosen to take. It reduces the whole question of reciprocity to a personal element, and even its most redoubtable opponents are (possessed with reason enough not to View the matter from this point., The argument: used against Earl Grey* as to the: impropriety' of his conduct, might-In the same .manner he-urged against Mr. Austen Chamberlain who is an ex-cabinet minister. The impropriety of the one is equally the impropriety of the other, in expressing an opinion on questions affecting the internal policy of this country.: / Yet the one is criticized, and-the other, is passed over in silence. The reason is easy to read for the filse bray of the loyalty trumpet has-been proclaimed by a man wh,pm'th0Be who were accustomed) to play the tune cannot help feeling j speaks with authority. ' Both Out of Place (Toronto Globe) Some Hamilton men, who bought land represented as within fifteen minutes of the heart of New York, find that New York's heart is not in the right place; No Difference (Albany Journal) If - we could' have our lives to live over again, we might avoid the mistakes We made before; but we should make as many other ones. Protect the Family (Toronto Star) Warden Gilmour is right; no man's family Should be punished for his misdeeds by being deprived of his earnings while he" is in prison. Parcel Post and Books (Springfield Republican) The query which has been pretty generally raised as to why the mailing of books and other third-class matter by parcel post should be pro; hibited is likely to take form in a bill in Congress to amend the new law in this particular;. Uncle Sam has always been jealous of his monopoly on certain forms of mail-carrying, and it seems strange to relinquish another form- of it to the express companies after he has broadened his field to include part of the express business. If books can be sent �by express, why not by parcel post? The question I? something of a poser. Sad,,Sad Indeed (Winnipeg Tribune) The Toronto Mail says It would have been a sad thing for our -farmers had the reciprocity agreement gone into effect. Yes, awfully sad. The prices that our farmers might have (been receiving would . surely have made them weep. For instance, the cash wheat prices in Minneapolis and Winnipeg yesterday were: , Winnipeg- Minneapolis-. No. 1 ____ 83% No. 1 H.89% No. .2 ____ 8Q?4 No. 1 N.8T%-88% No. 3 ____ 77% No. 2 ...85%-S6% How our farmers v.waiil have'sorrowed had they had access to Minneapolis with six to twelve cents a bushel for their wheat. And look at'flax! One great howl o- sorrow would have gone up among our farmers had they been permitted to realize 20 cents per bushel more on their flax. ~' The flax quotations for yesterday published in all the newspapers were: Winnipeg- Duluth- Jan..... 107% Jan....... 127% May .... 113 May...... 131^4 How Premier Borden must chuckle over having saved our farmers from the calamity of tuise high prices. He knows, everybody knows, that all our farmers are rolling in wealth. The only men threatened with poverty are a few eastern men living in mansions with brown stone fronts. Why shouldn't bur farmers make the sacrifice in. the general interest of a handful of east^rjft ;men? The spread in high grade barley yesterday was only fourteen cent? I per bushei.
