M.OO 6 iuoatio m adtaao.................. 55- Was the ier to Blame CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE POOR BUSINESS. THE attempt on the pnrt of some of ths agi- tators behind Uie movement to recall the mayor and commissioners to make capital for themselves by distributing the report that Com- missioner Grace had approached Gas Company officials asking them to cut the rate of wages to 25 cents an hour, will do the movement no good. iThe statement is false, as proven by the denials both by Commissioner Grace and the local man- ager of the Gas Company. If the remainder of the charges which are to form the basis of recall proceedings are no more jWorthy of notice than this fabrication, the move- ment had better be dropped before being forcld Id a vote. Such a disclosure shdws a'desire oh life part of some disgruntled person or persons to get even with the commissioners. And. cer- Jainly the people of Lethbridge are not going to stand for that sort of work in the first year of commission rule, v book is very similar to the departmental rc- ports issued annually by the provincial govern- ment and also by other up-to-date cities, and con- tains a tvealth of iuiormation of much public in- terest. No one interested in municipal govern- ment could fail lo find much pleasure and profit in perusing the report. It is good advertising tor the city, and shows that Edmonton is wide- awake. The Herald-mentions this because there lias been an agitation in the city hall every year for the past five years to have the Lethbridge reports compiled and printed in book form. Nothing has ever conie of it, but we believe it will conic soon- er or later. The value of having the information Tinu records of the city compiled in concise hook form is causing more and more cities to atiujn the course. IT IS A "TROST." natives of Calgary by Bringing in' an ordin ance which aims at the dog men. Aid. Pros, would prohibit any dog on the streets unless in tow of its owner. The dog men protest at the rope. They hold thaHt is not good form on their part to go down Jhe Street, linked up with a member of the canine ifarnily, and they also aver that it is a humiliation po dog of good breeding will stand. Aid. Frost might learn something from Leth- bridge's experience with its dog bylaw. Ex-Mayor was the father of that bylaw, and it is a mighty good it is enforced. The is, it is never enforced. If the letter of the ordinance were lived up to, no dog would be fceen on the streets of Lethbridge without being led or otherwise under direct control of its mas- ter. law is being enforced now, two Vears after on the books, is a joke. In other'words, it Is a "frost'." But Aid. Frost is hereby advised that the bylaw is 0.

A RNUTT MAGURN, writing in the June num- "-ber of, the Canadian Magazine under the cap- Jion in the has this Jo say in-his.concluding paragraph: "The inevitable result of redistribution will be dissolution, as i! would be impos- sible to continue legislating with the west undermanned by twenty-two and the east overmanned by nine. There is no law, however, to prevent the holding of another session. That, many believe, would be an obvious mistake, so the coming auiumn will probably see the two parties in field 'a oulrance.' We do not know Mr. Magum, fend are, not beset with the betting proclivity, but we would e wou wager our bunch of pil shares aqainst his that he is wrong on his forecast of a general election before another session. The government 'will Jake advantage of the fact that there is no law Compelling a general election immediately fol- lowing redistribution, and will hang on another fpasrn A GOOD SCHEME. Herald is just- iii receipt of a 400 page vol- lime containing the .ninth annual financial )nd departmental report oHhe cily of Edmonton. the oil in Oilberta. Dr. Dyde says that if Canada is ever to be- come the greai nation her resources make pos- sible, must sink sectional differences and make Canada our creed so that may sea all cniestions from the broad national angle. The Ooctor's advice is well worth passing along. We lave need of such high incentives and of men ike Dr. Dyde to keep them before us. The street railway men say the introduction of the one-man-car system is not the reason for ihe institution of recall proceedings against the commissioners. Well, why should it be? And eeing that is not the reason, the public would ike something tangible to consider before being hrusl into an election against the popular will. The Herald believes the public will have lo be shown very plainly that commission government so far has not been a success before they will stand for any change at the present time. steamer, and denies that she meant to convey the Impression thnt there1 was anything in (he condition of Captain Kendall that called for criticism. The explanation of the statement is that, although a good coni. mand of Efrsllub, Anderson Is a did not corr'ectly ex- press her.-meaning, which was that Captain Kendall had no whiskey from her, from anyone else on board that the know of. As regards tho statement made by those on the Empress that this. Stor- stad did not save many of Uie people, the agent reiterated his statement pre. vlonsly made, that the Storstad lower- ed all four of her boats, although In danger herself of jinking, and thaiot the 350 -who were put on board the Storstad, only 125 people were brought by the Empress boats, and thq re- mainder were saved by the Storstad. crew in their own boats and in Uie boats of the Empress of Ireland, which they, manned after the officers and crew had left them by the side of the Captain Lindsay, "the wreck commis- sioner, was on board tha- Storstad this morning accompanied by Mr. Mc- Conkey. government Inspector 'of j steamships from; Quebec, and they made a thorough examination of the damage done to the co'ilier, paying special attention to the twisted--stem" and the great Indentation ou the port Bide. Capain If he had anything to say on the matter, replied, "I am as. dumb as ah oyster at pro sent." He, that the place of the inquiry would be decided by the people at Ottawa, and that b6th Quebec and Montreal were anxious to have it. Asked as to whether ie would have anything to say In regard to the Stor- stad, Captain Lindsay replied that the C. P. R. would look after that, and. see that she was not removed from tha: jurisdiction of the court. He pointed out that even If the boat ivas taken to dry dock at Quebec for repairs it still be within the Jurisdiction of the court, as the whole ot the St. Lawrence was embraced by the court! Ths. reply of the owners of the Stor- stad to the actioiL-by the C. P. R. to recover two million, dollars for the loss ot the Emprees is a counter claim for damages to the Storstad and costs. They claim the Empress was at fault, and allege negligence in her navigation.

The local men camped on the land office steps for nearly 48 hours in order that they might get in on the first contingent, and they filed on land adjoining the Faber-Mac- kenzie drilling location, to the extent of 17GO acres. FILING NEAR CARDSTON Another party, largely Taber men, filed on some valuable leases south- west of Cardston, where it is said, there has been discovered deposits of sphalt and seepages ot oil. Local men. are also interested in the Sage Creek field, where a number of Vancouver and Spokane men, will drill. E. A. Cunningham is interest- ed in the lease of the entire Blood reserve, as are several other men in the city. This lease was obtained di- rect from Ottawa. There was a large gathering at tho office conducted by Mr. Wilson on Fifth street this morning, where a special wire service is being conduct- ed covering the latest fluotations and news from the north fields. In an erf'dr yesterday it was stat- ed that the Viaduct Oil Co., a.local concern, had control of 100 .acres. This was obviously wrong. The ac- tual amount held by the company is 1080 acres. that the men got out of the city qn a freight, for no trace of -them "found. The Lethbudge Laundry was brok- en mto last night and the drawer in the safe cracked; presumably by the same'men. The safe door was open, and the drawer contained only J2.60 which was .taken :by the thieves. Chief Skelton states men were probably professional safe crackers, and desperated criminals, or they would not- fired on the police officer without au instant's warning. The two men had-drawn a wagon up to one of the windows in the West- ern Canada building. Geo: :B.' pf'-'-thfe Western Canada Agency, stated'this morning that the Lethbridge police deserved a puff for the manner in which they, protected the warehouse and wholesale district.
