The scale on. :which 'the District Exhibit award ,was made gary fair, is interesting. One of the strong points .of the Lethbridge and at- tracted attention from the American visitor, was our. display of alfalfa. There appears apparently .no place on tftss'cale of points for alfalfa, and presumably, if: the judges were- local Calgary men they did not know it when they, for in .spite, of the fact that the .Calgary Herald claims the, mjthe.C.algary dis- trict, it is; in. ;tlie Lethbridge district only, where the raising of alfalfa has been successfully conducted and .the ignorance of their local men may therefore be excusable. ;The City Is to have, a new hock and ladder truck, one ;that will ex- tend a ladder that will reach itorey buildings.

Sir Percy Scott, however, on board the. Good Hope, doubted the accuracy of the signal and refrained from obeying it. The story is alluded to by other Lon don newspapers, but it is not verified and appears to be a part of the cam- paign against Lord Beresford arising out of his feud with Sir Percy Scott.

Co. would isit Jx'thbridgu in September and would discuss the matter with them hen. The council asked the special ommittce appointed some time ago o see about it, to meet Mr. Gait and o go over the matter with him. At the council meeting last night Aid. Cunningham brought up the mat ter of naming and numbering the streets. It should be done before the sidewalks are named so that the names or numbers could be marked on the sidewalks. The Mayor doubt- eded whether succeeding councils would, allow the numbers to remain. He favored the numbering system but he doubted whether the-council could change the names or not. Aid. Cun- ningham suggested that both names and numbers could be used. Aid. Macbeth expressed a preference for numbers for the streets if no compli- cations would follow. Whether num- bers or names should be used was Veft in abeyance until the solicitor is consulted. A motion was passed, irig the city .engineer to arrange that the names of the streets be placed in the new, cement walks according to the usual custom. After all the discussions had indulged in. it was ".later noticed that the. specifications called for the to be put in the with colored cement.

It was almost by chance that the workiiigman's interests were safe- guarded in the contracts for the Lo- al improvements to be done in the city this summer. When the cement sidewalk contract was read at the council last uight Aid. Ivee.noticed hat there was no fair wage-clause nserted- The Mayor said that it ought to be n as he had so instructed 'the engin- eer but upon investigation it was ound that the clause was not in the contract. Secretary Robinson said that the cuginec-r and the city solicitor in drawing up the contract had'discuss- ed tho matter but had "decided to leave it out. Aid. Ives declared, "I do not think we ought to let that go. We have had one rotten affair like that in the cement work on the bridge. That did not come under the Lem: ieux Act and as a result men 'we're forced work for a day be- cause they had to have work. The city's wOrk would not come under the Act either so the city should protect the wage earner." The Mayor "What is to prevent the bringing in a bunch of foreigners to work on the job? The clause should be in." V Aid. Adams, workingmaa is the man who has to bear the brunt in .every game .and he should, be pro: _ Aid.

It has developed hat the leaders of the fray are a notorious character named James Sharpe and his son, Leo Sharpe, who with a band similar to that which now accompanies them, wore deport- ed from Lethbridge, Alta., in July of last year, as undesirables. It is claimed that on that occasion these men threatened that they would re-ontor Canada for purposes of re- venge and it is believed that their present action is in accordance with that vow.. One of the disturbing elements in the unusual situation is that the lead- ers'and their following' pmless that they do not fear any violence from fire arms as they would be invulner- able to assaults of sinful men. Sharpe, senior, asserts that he is Christ ami that he lias a divine mis sion to the Doukhobors at Yorklon Sask. This is apparently a pet hobby of the fanatic, as on his previous vi sit to the Canadian West he claimed that he proposed to carry the true gospel to the Doukhobors. So serious does the matter appear to the officials -achment of police will work to the extent of "inducing them to go back over, the international boundary line without any violence on either side. On July 25th of last year, James Sharpe and his eleven year old boy, Lee Sharpe, were deported from Leth- bridge together with Lewis Pratt, his wife and family. They said they believed that" a second Adam would come from their party when they settled in Canada. They seemed harm- less while here, exercising their en- ergies in'preaching and singing at the Immigration Hall. The boy, Lee Sharp was a very fluent; speaker and all the party great singers. They did not resist deportation say- ing that if it were the will of the Lord they must ober and no threats of revenge were uttered as they left, although promising to return to Can- ada later on.

July view of the short period between now and proro- gation it is hardly probable that the government will introduce any legis- lation this session looking to the con- striction of the proposed new Welland Canal waterway.
