Sir Wilfrid Laurier in the course of his tour thus far have invariably asked for freer trade. They have no protection, for their products, nor do -they need any. Western Can- ada has no occasion to import any grain or stock, except possibly sam- ples of seed for experiment and .breed- ing stock. .The farmers produce more tihan the country requires of their pro- duct, and, 'moreover, these products are of better quality. than anything that could imported. Therefore, a tariff 'wall 'built to keep out foreign grain and stock cannot possibly be of any value- to sthem. The nature of the industries producing what they have to sell makes it impossible for them to follow 4he example of the tariff- protected manufacturers in combines to restrain the production and enhance the price to artificial values. There is thus no necessity for or advantage in protection toy a tar- iff. On the atiher hand, protection raises the price of everything he has got to buy. Agricultural implements, clothing, lumber, wire, furniture, all kinds of building -material, all cost him more than they would if there was no duty to raise 'the price, wheth- er they are produced at home or in foreign countries. Whatever may 'have been his views with regard to the tariff before he came West, it does not take the Western farmer long to see that he loses at both ends of the -deal The case is plainer with "Mm than it is with the farmer in the East although he is the loser in the same way. The farmers of Western. Canada know full whereof they speak when they ask for freer trade by the reduction of the tariff. any such action by the itoba premier.

There is a great dearth of Justices of the Peace in High River at present, and frequently it is rather difficult to secure an official to !hold court. Mr. A. W. H.

In the meantime the names of George Mack and Sam Dunlap are being men- tioned in this connection, but it is doubtful if they will accept the ap- pointment.

To the Editor of the Herald: who are living at No. ,6 sent a. petition to the department of education at Edmonton in the begin- ning of 1910 for the formation of a new school district which we badly needed. The department sent us papers to fill out giving 'the popula- tion, number of children of school age, etc., which we filled out, showing population of 500 and 60 children. In reply we received the following letter. "Edmonton, July 16, 1910. further reference to our correspondence relative, I now beg TO say that I am in receipt of a letter from the Board of Lethbridge School District, in which they inform me that they have recently purchased a site for a new school half a mile nearer to your village than the school at pres- ent in operation, the new -bufldins It "is thought that constructed, consider the drought we are Slaving, the. statement that it does require rain in Southern Alberta to grow crops is in a sense true. One man who had just come from the Southern States, -the other day said: "Well, I nave more faith in Alberta -than I ever had, for although in the States they had lots of rain last spring, .they are just as dry as we are nowT and will give the children living at Har- dieville, the necessary accommodation and consequently it -does not appear necessary to -take steps to have the new district formed. Your obedient servant, "D. S. MACKENZIE, "Deputy Minister. That notification means that we have a school district already for our children, .but we do not know where the school building is for us. Also we do not know whom -we have to ask for a school, the department at Ed- monton or the Lefchb'ridge Board. If the Lethbridge Board prohibits us their crops are not so good." up. Alberta is all right. Cheer Side Lights Decorated His Own Grave. (New York HeraMJ Xo slave to tradition is James Townsend, of Milltown, N. J. He ob- served Memorial Day by decorating his own grave, flying a flag above it, and having his picture taken in an attitude depicting an agreeable mix- ture of sorrow and resignation.. Mr. Townsend, who went to live in Milltown when Johnson was Presi- dent, decided a couple of years ago that another monument or two would improve his .town, so he 'bought one THE SCHOOL BYLAW. Lethbridge's first school bylaw vote did not amount to very much after alL The total vote was only sixty-one and of these only three voted ag- ainst the bylaw. Hitherto, the School Board -has (been alkrwed, as the or- dinance permits, to pass the bylaws without submitting a vote. There are reasonable objections to this method of doing business, especially in the more populous and important school districts. But witih this particular by- law some opposition arose not so much against the spending of seventy- five thousand dollars .to 'build an eight room school, .but to the method of spending the money without submitt- ing the bylaw ,TO a vote. The required petition demanding a vote was signed by some forty odd ratepayers and the vote was ordered. It evidently requires more interest and energy to get out and vote than it does to sign a petition placed before one. For of the over forty men who signed the said petition only two turned ap to vote, a privilege they petitioned for. To use an. old phrase "There was more cry than wolf." The School Board has for the first time had its policy and administration questioned, and as it has turned out it tras not very serious. They have received the mandate of the people, both by silence and consent, to pro- ceed witb. the building of the Fleet- wood School, -which will accordingly be -done with the greatest possible despatch. and had it set up in Van Liew Ceme- tery. It bears an. inscription giving some facts of the owners biography. It has a space to 'be filled in -when Mr. Townsend dies. Yesterday MT. Townsend decorated his grave with his favoHte flowers, and they and the granite memorial to himself provided the background against which he stood to be photographed. He re- frained from delivering an address be- cause, he said, he did not feel he could do justice to his subject CALGARY MAN SUES FOR DIVORCE. Ottawa, Ont, July H. G.

Why do they not build a school right away, as we have sixty children waiting to go? Yours truly, WM. THREATFULL. is a mistake some place as to the position taken by the Lethbridge School Board. communicated with in this mat- ter, the Board passed a resolution saying- that the Board would not op- pose the formation of a new district in a part of the present Lethbridge district, -provided the department ar- ranged for the carrying out of the provisions of the school ordinance by which the ,v district would take ov- er its proportion of the debenture in- debtedness of the district. The de- partment asked the board what prov ision it had made the people of Hardieville, and were told of the loca- tion of the Westminster and Bailey street schools, saying that the board had recently purchased a site half a mile closer to Hardieville. They did not say they had any immediate in- tention of building on the latter site As in the case of the formation of the new district across the river, the board put the responsibility on the de- partment in order to protect the Leth- bridze district in the matter of the debenture indebtedness. The Board has not had any .request from the peo- ple of Hardieville for the erection of a school, and before undertaking to build a school there would have to find out how many children there are there who come from families that are supporters of the public schools.
