MclNTYRE It is quite safe to say that the late Dr. Mclntyre, of Strathcona, was one of the most useful members of the House of Commans from "Western Can ada. Before and since his entrance into public life he made himself fa- miliar with the most urgent needs of the people of this practically new coun try and at Ottawa he made a reputa- tion as an authority on West- ern questions. When he had occasion to address the Commons he gained the close attention of his fellow members., a greater tribute than people unfamiliar with the affairs at Ottawa may realize. The doctor, while a loyal Liberal, was first and foremost a true friend and exponent of the interests of Western Canada and his death is a distinct loss to this country. Had the doctor lived there is no doubt that in time ho would have had the refusal of a Cab- inet position. SUN FIRE The oldest Insurem FOUNDED A.D. Office In the world BI.CENTENAKY 1910 HOME OFFICE.

The Stavely Standard made its debut last week and its first issue is very creditable. Stavely people should give it good support. A live newsy paper can do a heap for a town: a slow poky sheet usually is an index to a slow town. OUR LET PER BOX.

Ont.. is gome to manufacture' v -i tnermos bottles. ]So doubt he has lu 'fresh oMcial, whicn, I believe., the present intention ot the council, mind a process to keep the Opposi- n TliH duties ol a. Bmldme tion at Ottawa cool. THE BOARD OF TRADE J. W. McNicol is giving his entire time to the affairs c-f ihe Board of Trade and not, too much of a salary to pay l-fca. In a year's time he win be an invaluable official. In the short period he has been associated with the Board he has become a regular mine of 'nfor- mation. Visitors to the oitj find a regular directory. Mr. McNicol is an and systematic worker and ?OTae cf ihe literature he has this shows that he has the proper idea cf publicity. The Board of Trade's work this year has been of a most benefi- cial character and the value of this organization to the city is worth con- siderably more than a civic grant. The Board is sowing seed that may be reap ed at any time, and the harvest is just as likely as not to be worth' a hundred civic grants. It must be re- membered also that the money order- ed to be paid to the Board on Monday evening includes the eum necesary to pay .for the new publicity building. OUR POINT OF VIEW. France has to have some excitement and so the Cabinet resigned. The eagerness of the buyers to get lots at Carmangay is sure proof that they believe that town is going to be considerably better than a rail- road Prairie a few months ago, a busy little town now, is the nutshell his- tory of Carmangay. Lethbridge is developing so rapidly that buildings cannot be erected fast enough to accommodate new business and tents have to be used. British Liberals continue to win.' Lloyd George certainly switched the tide in their favor. All the fraternal societies ought to endorse the Sons of England proposi- tion of a Hospital Sunday. Clemencan's fall in France was ful- ly ae sudden as a slip on a banana on the sidewalk. Rural population in Ontario ia de- creasing, and the West is blamed. The people who came here from the rural parts of Ontario are happy, however. The Stratford Beacon remarks: "A sale of acres of government unimproved land in the Lethbridge district has realized an average of tU.W an acre. This sort of thing should make values in the Eeast pick up. When unimproved land in the Wwt brings such figures there should an upward movement in vainer of improved land in Ontario." in Ontario the farmer does fhinfs on a big scale. W. E. Cnlrer, of Bloomsburg, near Simcoe a seventy acre field of peas and1 "Well, doctor, and how are "Oh, I'm taking life easy." NICE COMPLIMENT. The duties ot u Building Inspector require a man with special qualifica- tions, who is familiar with all mat- ters relating to building construction, buth iu theory and practice. It requires a man who can so interpret the bylaws, which leave practically everything to his discretion, in such a way that buildings can be '.Tt-cted with safety to the public, and vaihi'ul putting the builders to unnecessary expense. The consideration of tho [question of safety against fire is only j one of many, and it has always struck me thai it was not fair to ex- 'pect the head of the fire brigade to I inspect buildings with any other ofa- j ject than to see that they were rea- sonably safe from fire. It is too much to ask that your fire brigade should carry out the duties of a trained arch- itect or civil engineer. The City have already an engineering department and upon that department ought to lie the duty of building inspection. If the fire authorities have special requirements, it is for the engineer- ing department to see thai these re- quirements are properly carried out. The City have in addition to their engineer, at- least, one man in that de- partment whose services could easily be utilized for this duty, who possess- I es all the requirements before referred to, and if the council care to re-or- ganize their present engineering staff, the city would get proper service and to the existing number of officials by incurring any great' additional ex- pense whhich would be inevitable if a new man with the necessary train- ing were appointed.
