THE WEEKLY HERALD P-ub-ished everv in eight cr more pages, and contains a summary of the news of tbe (reek, and district 1 year la advance ____ SLW C In advance 50c LORD STRATHGOKA. sltoulcl raise a memorial in his honor. Slmtli- conn, more than any other one inau, made West- ern Canada possible. passing away of Lortl Strathcona removes a man whose personality will leave an in- iliience hound to be. felt for many years lo come and whose name will be worthy of an honorable mention in history's pages. As plain Donald Smith he played a big part in the earlier days of this western country, and his business genius and prophetic vision eminently qualified him to do so much important work in laying the founda- tion upon which the present magnificent super- structure is being built. There was little other than wildness west of the Great Lakes when Donald Smith first set foot .in Canada, but it seemed to be lite very condition which challenged the best in the sturdy ycnmg Scotchman, and those at all familiar with the development of the west know that Donald Smith played a big man's part from the very commencement of his career in' this new land. He was not born, with the silver spoon. .The son of a humble home his rise from compafative poverty-to one of the world's greatest financiers has a few parallels, but has rarely been surpassed. His life story should fur- nish inspiration to the youth of the land. Brains, determination and dogged courage combined to force Donald Smith to the front. -He was so eminently qualified to dominate and lead that it was not surprising that he was called early in life to positions of responsibility. His political career in Canada was not as outstanding in brilliancy as liis business life, but whether in the old Mani- toba Legislature or the Federal Parliament at Ottawa he always commanded attention. He was prominently identified with the construction of ,1he Canadian Pacific railway and it was perhaps due to his courage and vision that the road .was Luilt across the almost uninhabited prairies and through the mountains when it was. While nom- inally a supporter of the Conservative parly in Jiis younger days he was not a _ More ;than once he had differences with the great chief- tain, Macdonald. Two master minds could not always think in harmony. In his later life he was free from parly.interest and his declining years were given over entirely to a remarkable devotion lo the building up of the Empire and making Canada an important factor During the greater part of his career as High Commissioner lie was associated with Sir Wilfrid Laurifr and the two great men co-operaled in Empire build- ing with the happy result that in the sixteen years involved Canada became better known through- out the world, developed a grcalcr spirit of po- litical independence and ot the same lime wove Stronger the links which hound the motherland tmd colonial possessions in the bonds of Empire greatest Ihe world has seen. Lord Stralhcona's devotion to the mother- land was well exemplified in the Ikier war when lie paid the entire expense of one of the finest bodies of mounted men which took part in the subjugation of Kruger's iirmics, and the adding of a considerable increase lo the red upon the map of the world. Such an exemplification of patriotic devotion to coimlry lias no parallel in modern bislory. Of his philanthropy Micro was no end. He gave- with a lavish hand and seldom did a worthy cause appeal lo him in vuin. if he made much out of Canada he gave much back. Universities: hospitals and Young Men's Christian Asspcia- lions found in him an unfailing friend. Lelh- bridge has reason lo remember him wilh grai'.- Indc as one of his gifts wus a handsome cheque lo Ihe local Y. M. C. A. Canada loses a valuable Servant in death of Ihe High Commissioner; Iho Empire loses a devoted subject, and the World loses a great man. end! parlic- nlark Western Canada, should long hold hi THE FARMER'S CONVENTION. WELCOME to (he farmers. No more important convention has ever convened in Lelhbridge and it is hardly probable :hat any more important convention ever will meet here. Important, because the men who coin- it are the men who dominate in the agrictil-! lural life of Iliis province and the farm opera- tions are now, and perhaps always will be. thej biggest thing in the line of industry in Alberta, i We will have many factories and more railways invade Alberta, but they will he-subsidiary to the farming interests in so far as producers of wealth are concerned. The farmers arc the pioneers of industry. They come first and build up so lha', the other fellows may get confidence enough to come in. Without Ihe farmers the factories would hot come, and consequently Ihe farmers are leaders.. The towns and cities depend on Ihe farmers, and the men who Jill the soil are dc-_ pendent upon the dwellers within the lowns. No one industry is so self-contained that it can get along without the other, although if such an economic'condiiion were tn arise, the farmer would have the best of it. The convention which opened Ibis morning has lo do with big issues, and the Herald has no doubt but that they will be dealt wilh in a big .The men who lead are responsible lo the public to see that the solu lions reached for questions under discussion are nol too much of a class character, but designed to build iip the snil carry wilh Ihem the other inlerests in the province. The farmer has done fairly well in Alberta. He has much lo be thankful for, and he likewise has much to demand before conditions arc ideal. Lei him ask for what he wants so as to jiiakc gradual irogress and he will have the great bulk of all other interests al his back. The farmer needs wider markets, less tariff restrictions, increased transportation facililies, belter financial arrange-1 ncnts, especially in llic form of cheaper money. All these things are essential to success, and in liis struggle lo obtain them the farmer has the right lo look for the sympathetic co-operation of other classes of industry. The men who arc op- posing free wheal, for example, are doing so From purely selfish motives and not for Ihe pub- lic weai. If Ihe farmers as a whole feel thai they should have the right to sell anywhere they can 10 the best advantage, the country should see to 11 lhal Ihey get thai right. Unless the farmers prosper Ihe rest of us can- nol prosper, and Ihe sooner the people realize lhal fact nnd line up lo help giv.e Ihe filler of the soil Ihe frees! possible opporlunily lo gel along, the heller il will he for all concerned. The Herald welcomes Ihe U. F. A. convention ond Irusls as an oulcomc of llic deliberations Ihe farmers may find il easier lo solve many of Ihe perplexing problems which :tre continually aris- ing.
