The Aldermanic Vacancy CONSIDERING that the alderman elected to fill the vacancy caused by the lamented death of the late Mr. McCambly will not have a full year to serve, and that the last municipal election is still within memory, it would seem advisable that . the successor to the vacant aider-manic chair be elected by acclamation. In pursuing this course the city i "will be spared the expense of an election, and in a year when retrenchment is the watchword this is a mat-'ter which should carry some weight' So far as popular interest is concerned, under the circumstances,' not much will be aroused, and the ratepayers themselves will be glad to be spared another municipal campaign. It may be said that the candidates" who presented themselves before the  electors, in JDecember were all ;ihat were available amongst those who Jelt; 'it a civic duty'to serve the"'p_|pp|e, 'and it is very much to tie doubted whether^ any new man will be found to come forward at the-present Juncture. '.It is also a matter of conjecture how many of the defeated candidates in the*'December polls will car* to come forward again. If it so happens that more than one will present themselves; it is/ only conceivable that they will be amongst those whom the ratepayers have already dealt with. Considering the recent date on which the -candidates" last came forward it would" not be idle to say that the results, so far as the standing went, would in all probability be the same. Hence it must appear that an election, is hatdiy neeessary, and that the steppin^-up Sf the. candidate'Who, "was "proxhne .-agcesjrft" to those' elected would be ,*ltj|te in order. This position was held by Mir. Louis Keel, and "If. lie is still in the" *same frame of 'mfhd^s-hVwas in December with re~ giird^io municipal honors, we see no jipasan'wiy^he* should, not be allowed fcy^acclamatibn to fill the existing vacancy. - v Setting the Example |-p HE RECENT' utterances of Mr, X Austen Chamberlain, .and the reply they drew from'Earl Grey; :ought to fulfil a useful purpose. The occasional outbursts from certain of the Conservative press with reference : to the disloyal trend of the reciprocity -measure,- and the uncalled- for allusions to Canada as an adjunct of the'  TJnited' States, may be harmless so far a&j the people of the Dominion are ^concerned. But experience has shown "that these remarks are taken too seriously by those outside of Canada, 'who,, not being intimately acquainted .-with conditions here, are apt to form their opinions, and believe in them, from what they happen to read. Therefore these jibes, for that is what thay really amount to, when contrasted with the harm they work outside the Dominion, resolve themselves into -nothing more than the practice -of fouling one's own rieBt. --'^ The Toronto News with assumej ignorance wishes to know in what way Mr. Austen Chamberlain came to . form the opinion he expressed witbr| regard "to the reciprocity pact. The question does not require an answer fcT the reasons are obvious. It-is time, now that the papers we �refer to learnt a little wisdom, and in the exercise of the same they will learn the Wgard' of Canadians of all shades of political opinion.' A good sample,/hats been ah-eady set by the Ottawa. Citizen, a Conservative Journal,; which in the course of a well-ealled. ft>r:reditorial thus, comments: J?0nlythe narrowest partisanship couid; charge the Liberals with disloyalty, and an anti-Imperial motive in seeking to secure free entry into the IJ. S. market of Canadian products." Further, in defending Earl Grey against the attack's which have appeared in certain Conservative papers the Citizen says: "The least that Canadian" Conservatives can do is to grant the possibility that the Liberal Jtoty,ih; working for what the former consider a wrong policy, were just as loyal as themselves. To condemn a British Unionist like Earl Grey for daring to he generous and just to the Upertf party of Canada deserves surely a* stronger condemnation." 'f* To'? art of which we fervently utter "Amen.".  OUR POINT OF VIEW [a 'St. Gaul, is the name of a city in Switzerland. Rather a half brother of scrambled eggs. The fans are talking baseball. Sunny Southern Alberta weather gets them.all talking. . A new school will be opened in Lethbridge this week. Another indication of the solid growth of the city. There are enough children to fill it too. If the aldermen are to be paid, it would not be a bad idea if they should earn part of their salary by holding a special meetiDg at an early date to discuss n.Justrial matters. Spring weather is a warning to prepare for spring activities, and industrial activity would be warmly welcomed. Sirs. Pankhurst, who is leading the suffragettes in the fight which is now waging around the House of Commons in England, states that they will declare guerilla Warfare if they are not given equal rights with the men. She might have said gorilla warfare, and come fairly close to the truth. Man was descended from monkeys anyway, according to the scientists. Likewise, the-women. The advice of the manager of the P. Burns Co. to the farmers to prepare their produce for market so that it will be acceptable to consumers is good advice, and farmers will do well to act upon it. The only way to build up a market is to supply the demand. Demand means more than simply bringing in the produce. It means bringing it to market in such condition-as to make it attractive to the buyer. The, ratepayers will vote on several money bylaws on Feb. 5th. Now is the time to find out all about them. Saskatoon will build a bridge this summer which they claim will be the biggest in the world. Even Saskatoon tries �to emulate Lethbrldge. No idle men this winter in Lethbrldge. Invitations will soon be sent out for several hundTed to help in the season's work. The success of the short course schools Instituted by the department of agriculture is proof positive of the capable administration of Hon. Duncan Marshall, minister of agriculture. The Hon. Duncan is nothing if not practical. Now that Stafford Village is to be taken into tho city, the council) should...turn its attention to givingthe; village water and sewor connection Better sanitary conditions among-the; mining population would "wing good returns for the expenditure. The morning paper yesterday car-| rled a comment of Edmonton origin' complaining that the new parliament'! buildings which will cost ?4'QOu,Oob! when completed, will not properly' accommodate all the departments of the: government. Immediately underneath was another .news item stating that the cost of Site* new buildings would be $1,500,000. The latter 'Was evidently written by a gentleman with some regard for the truth, while' the former was some of the guff th^'Edmonton Journal unloads in trying to convince the people of this province that they are not getting a squire deal from the Slfton administration. -Murder will out. - -sTory Paper Roasts White  : (Toronto Telegram) Canada's House of Commons might have been spared the insults to its intelligence conveyed in the request to recognize IJon. W. T. White as a (laxing innovator, almost a bold iconoclast in his dealings . with the demands of the Bankers' Association. The Bank Act might be slightly improved in details If the House of Commons accepted the handiwork of Hon. W. T. White as an ample fulfilment of the duty which the Borden government owes the people of this country. The authorization pf loans to farmers, the restriction which prevents  the names "bank" or "banker" from being used except by a chartered bank,,, are representative of the pretty, trifles with which Hon. W. T.. White has fringed a fabric of a complete surrender to the ideals of the Bankers', Association.  , What the Farmer Loses (Winnipeg Tribune) The spread, in flax prices^yesterday was only 28:cents per bushel.

It is doubtful, if any other American man or 'woman pf millions, has been so earnestly trying to help those less fortunately placed as Miss Gould. She never turns a deaf ear tp an appeal. A Groat Philanthropist Helen Gould was never a "society woman." Twenty years ago,, when her father died, she became mistress of a great fortune, most of it invested in-railways. She realized the opportunity, and from then to now has busied herself in charitable works. The Y. M. C. A. has been her pet philanthropy, and she has been especially interested in the work the association is doing among railroadmen,, soldiers and sailors. She has given a fortune to assist this work.' She has also concerned herself in the condition" of working girls and established a chain of cooking and sewing schools in New York. Unlike many-other philanthropists, Miss. Gould has not-kept herself aloof from those she has benefited. Most of the Bast-Side' girls who goto, her Bchools have be'en entertained at* her magnificent country estate near Tarrytowu. They are her friends; and she delights in their company.-. The personal interest Miss Gould talces in her charities finds its: counterpart in the* interest she takes in-the Gould railroads, "and it was as at result of her habit of inspecting some of her investments that she met Mr. Shepherd. . - In a Railroad Wreck There is poetic justiee in the fact that the daughter of the , great old railroad 'wrecker should .lose . her heart In a railroad wreck. MisB Gould was travelling from New. York .to Chicago, and Mr. Shepherd, assistant to President Brush, of the Union Eaclfic, .was sent to take charge of the party. He had luncheon with Miss Gould in her private car which was the last car on the train. At Syracuse another private car was attached, and but for this-fact the probability is that there would have been no romance at all,, for in the middle of the night there was a rear-end collision which -wrecked two trains.'- Shepherd hurried back tp Miss Gould's oar, bub found that none of its occupants was injured. Then.he Bet to do 'what he could to give aid to the victims of the wreck, many of whom were pinned under the overturned, cars. ....... Two Months' Courtship He worked manfully, and when all had been done' that could be done, he went to Miss Gould's car 'again. He was black and bleeding, and. Miss Gould herself insisted upon caring for his wounds. Later on she said that when she saw Mr, Shepherd leading the. Hfe-sawrs she fell in love with him on the spot.: Mr. Shepherd says much the same thing about Miss Gould, who went about among the injured and frightened people, giving the assistance trained hands and "a loving heart alone could give. Miv Shepherd modestly says that though he fell in love with Miss Gould that night she seemed so far above hito as a star, and he had ho idea that-she returned his affection. Th� wreck occurred about the middle of last October, so it will be seen' that there could not have been much time lost between tho lovers when they discovered how the case was with them. Their engagement was announced before Christmas, so that the courtship lasted only a couple of months,before its proper climax in their betrothal. A Railroad Man ./Mr, Shepherd }s a native o'f Connecticut, and a trained railroad man. He worked for the Northern Pacific at St. Paul until he became assistant general manager, and then in 1001 went to the Santa-"5Te,-with offices in Chicago. Later he was transferred to �Los Angeles where he was general, superintendent of aii'the coast lines. Throe ryears later he retired from, railroad work and for a while devoted himself to private business.

In .1911 he.returned to his old love, and-joined the operating department bt'the Missouri Paclflc-lTOn Mountain system. When Mr. Brush was chosen to head that. combination, whioh included the Denver and Rio Grande, lie made Mr. Shepherd his assistant. Mr. Shepherd is,the son Of. an Episcopal clergyman, and .is said to be interested in philanthropy. .
