From a C. A. P. cable, it appears that the match will not take place until the second week of August, yet the two Canadian school boys have been in England si nee. a few days before Empire Day, May 24th. Col. Lessard and Major Winter, of the Militia Department, who had charge of the sending of the boys are unable to account for the blunder. Major Winter says that on May- 1st a cable came from Lord Stratli- c stating that he hud been asked by Mr. Hansen, secretary of ,._the Lord Roberts Boys Competition, to send the invitation to Canada to have the boys compete in a match on Em- pire Day. There is no doubt in the minds of anybody here that the cable stated distinctly that the match was to' take place on May 24th. It is possible that Lord Strath cona mav have confused Empire Match with Emprie Day which would explain (lie blumler. Meanwhile what will be J.oue with tho two Canadian boys now in England, the officers are un- able at present to say. FORMER VICE-PRESIDENT MEETS JAP EMPEROR Tokio, May Vice Pres- ident Fairbanks and Mrs. Fairbanks were audience by the em- peror and empress of Japan today. Prince Fusnimi and Airisugawa and other princes of the royal bloM were present. The emperor was in high spirits throughout the visit. He said he desired Mr. Fairbanks to under- stand that he was a welcome visitor to Japan and he wished him also to carry back to the people of America an assurance of continued friendship and the ever increasing reliance of the Japanese people upon the good will of the United States.

Calgary and Edmonton will have to hustle vei out xi we uy nvi in.nM.ii..ivi> to it, it aoon will be. It is our duty to to keep up with this rapidly expand- pluck every little dandelion as it ing city. Th This little flower is not a pest here yet but if we do not pay attention sticks its head above the ground, work should be dune this year, nut next year or the year after. One of the Great Falls papers tells of a method adopted in that city tv kill this pest. It is as wllows: In line with the recommendation j men! made in the Tribune yesterday by'our Senator Paris Gibson, the board of park commissioners have st-t private property owners a good example by putting a force of men at work in the.parks eradicating dandelions. The park board is using Cameron's mi s" noxious plant erauicak-r, which con- sists of an instrument which digs down and pulls out the roots of the An alderman remarked at the city council meeting that enough tools had been bought in this city munici- pal work' to build the C. P. E. Irom coast to coast. That's a serious state- and is a reflection on some of If the statement is reet there ought to be an investiga- tion. plant, at the same time injecting into the ground where the roots were a fluid, partly composed of gasoline, which kills any of the roots which may be remaining. Great Falls probably has fewer dan delions than any other city of the state, and the residents of the city should eiidealvor to maintain the re- cord they have set. Helena is over- run with the yellow pests, and it is almost impossible for the people of The Alberta Government can keep right on swelling the building per- Lethbridge will not object. With the automatic phones it will be a case of good bye to the hello girl. nuisance now. A DEPUTY INSPECTOR HERE ige is the recognized wheat distributing centre of Southern Al- berta. For many miles north, east west farmers haul in their grain to sell to the local buyers or ship on their own account. South of us is the great grain growing territory along the line of the A. -B. I. rail- way. All the shipments from this line have to pass through this city. At the present time the only point in Alberta where grain can be graded is at Calgary. It is most inconven- ient for a farmer or a dealer to have to ship his grain to Calgary to be graded if he wants to ship it to the Pacific coast or east to Fort Wil- liam and it is rather a gamble to have it shipped to Winnipeg or other points and then have it- graded. He has io take the risk and if the grain falls below what he figures, he has, in most cases, to "sacrifice his wheat, espec- ially if it goes below No. 3. Lethbridge is at the present moment the centre of a district 'of great grain growing resources and even greater possibilities for the future. It would be a great convenience to the grain growers and to the grain buyers of the south country if a deputy inspec- tor was placed here to look after the grading of the grain from this great territory. Thp farmer and the buy- er could then ship without taking any chances. He would know the grade of grain he was selling or shipp ing and would not danger of having it held up at the other end of the line. Representations should be made to the government at once of the ne- cesity of the appointment of such an official at this point. EXEMPTED PROPERTY At the time of the publication of the assessment figures preparfd by Assessor Currie there were expres- sions of astonishment about the ex- tent of the exempted property in the city some forty per cent, of the to- tal assessment. In Winnipeg the percentage is about twenty per cent. Assessor Currie has furnished the Herald with a statement of the ex- empted property and it must be con- fessed that things are not as bad as they seemed to be. Over of the total exempt assessment of 000 is the value of property owned by tut- city. Then there is an allowance of for public schools which brings the city property valuation up to over The Dominion gov- ernment buildings and property are valued at nearly and if we must have government buildings we must follow tho law and not tax thftm. Such is also the case with tho. provincial government though the am- ount this year is very light, the value of the lots for the courthouse. Next year this will be increased by the val- ue of the courthouse building and the new telephone exchange. The C. P. R. Co, is credited with exemptions of nearly a million but when MR. HIGINBOTHAM'S TRIP He Made a Large Collection of Pic- tures and Souvenirs The Herald representative had a very interesting interview with Mr. J. D. Higinbotham on his return from his recent Mediterranean trip. Mr. HisinbothanT says they had a most or rough weather, out of the whole time there being only four days of rondi weather, the roughest being in There were sis hundred and eighty in the party which made the tour on the Arabic. Among these were-twen- ty-three Canadians. "Among the other interesting epi- sodes was the reception of the party at Constantinople where they hap- pened to arrive on the day the treaty was signed between Austria and Tur- key. Envers Bey, the leader of the Young Turks, came on board and in- vited "them to come ashore with their cameras, "for you will be in a land that is now under a The Free Masons on.board, of whom there were eighty-five, were invited to attend the lodge in that city. Mr.' Hisrinbotham has many inter- esting things to tell of the various countries visited, being particularly struck with the beauty of Madena. He made a very large collection 01 pictures and souvenirs.. There were no mishaps during the journey. At Paris on their return trip tw'o of the party died, one of them being an old man, eighty-two years of IS LORD STRATHCONA TO BLAME FOR IT Two Canadian Boys in England Ahead of Time Ottawa, extraor- dinary blunder has been made by some one regarding the sending of two Canadian school boys, one from Toronto and one from Hamilton, to take part in the Empire School Will Suckers Bite When offered a toothsome fly hook purchased from Sage's stock of Fishing tackle?
