Coming just shortly j nfter the proposal to institute Ihc same in the; "province of Manitoba had met with defeat in legislature, what the Chicago speaker had Ib say frn the principle makes the subject more interest- 'On broad lines Mr. While, who showed him- to he a sound thinker, staled his case very briefly when he made the remark '.thai though .Ilie whole people maynot be'so honest, so cap- iihle, or as virtuous as the few, yet the whole people would not' co-operate to swindle them- pclves. There was TIO doubt1 in this statement a puspicion of human nature with something of a Diogenes character, yet it cannot but have its bjijical. i Direct legislation has already made its ap- pcarance in municipal government, arid exper- ience; so; far, has shown that its.

The British ex- Premier can never be suspecled of designs on tlie constitution, but he has expressed his belief direct legislation was the only means de- jvised by the human mind thai would be any im- provement of that system of government. leod's policy has been more conscrvulivc. We have gone about our business and have postponed our boasting until we had Ihe goods. These general asserlions are apro- pos of the statements which have appeared in the Lethbridge press to the effect that Lelhbriilge had been promised an internal storage elevulor. The Spectator is-now in a position to slale that there is no founda- tion for this clnim. The next internal storage elevator which is to-be built-in Alberta will be built in Macleod, where it should be.built. Macleod put it Lelhbrulge in Ihc presentation of to Ihe. Grain Commissioners, because the topographical logic of the situation is fa--' vorable to this'placc. The Spectalor would not advise anyone to buy Lelhbridgc real estate on the strength of the asserlion that that town is to get an internal storage ele- valor."

Macleod Spectator doesn't like the idea of Lethbridge being given an iijternal storage p ls iklevator. The Specialor wants the elevator to go i >lp Macleod and quite naturally so. What other '.toosilion the Spectator could take would be difli- jtult to imagine. Lethbridge and Macleod are ibolh after an elevator, and il is extremely doubt- SJTul if Ihe government will build (wo so close to- gether. It may be that the town with the biggest ''pull" will get the elevator. If Macleod wins.out, Macleod, but the good people ;bf that town may rest assured that Lethbridge .Is going to put up its very best bid for the plum. :Dr. Stewarl, M.P.P., is credilefl with, laying that is to get the elevator. The Doctor has .Jiot repudiated the statement, so it may be taken iftjr granted that he was given an assurance to 'that effect.

The News Telegram is vcrv liberal, an< knrrtf1. nilll. in fno.l ron.s dcranlv rnnrp llinn llif _ _ Because the Herald gently chided the Calgary News Telegram for advising the unemployed of that city to slampedc to Lclhbridge, Bub Rogers' deck hand comes back with a fusilade of persi- flage which much resembles the exudations of a bar-room. The Calgary editor is afraid of the brain disaster which might follow our swallow- ing of a pea. It would he too bad but we Ihink there would be no such danger in the News Tele- gram sanctum. Water is Ihe only thing likely lo make wood swell, and from all accounts waler is used there on Ihe scale of Ihe irreducible min- imum. in fact considerably more than the Macleod Spectator, n government paper, credits liim with. The Spectator says: Ur. Stewart may be a good dentist, but he probably exaggerates his "pull" at Ot- fa'wa. The Spectator had Ihe following which should be of interest to the people of Lethbridce: "Lclhhridge makes a practice of elaim- ing cverythinjj in sight, which is perhaps a policy, although opinions differ on "that point.
