IMPORTANT TO LETHBRIPGE; THE needs of an agricultural school, a school of mines, and a Lands TiUes office, are not nicreh ambitious desires on the part of ftejjji- zens of Lethbridge. These institutions are re- -cfmremeTits 'which, in the position ;the city is hap- pily situated, make them paramount, necessities. "The coal city in a wheat centre" is not a mere grandiloque'nt phrase. The; description, as Niipplicd to Lelhbrldge, is one natural conditions warrant. It is only logical to request that, m conformity with these conditions, there -should be a school of minos and fan agricultural school. In ils position with regard to the southern dis-: trict of iliu'-proviuee the reason: likewise holds good for the-institution rof a Lands Titles pllice. For the convenience and business the erection of a building here calls'for a serious con- sideration on the-part of the provincial 'ties. The intimated by HoriJ Gharies; Stewart, Minister of Public Works, "promise he lias made to personally investigate the merits desired by- the city are encouraging. Let us trust that our hopes will not be disappointed and that much good will result thereby. THE TIPPING SYSTEM. THE question of tipping is one of those wallers come up periodically for discussion. At the present time attention is drawn to it by'the bill introduced by Senator Davis. Tipping, per se, is not altogether to be con- demned where it takes the form of an expression pi thanks for services rendered with a willing- ness and perfection more than the mere formal rendering of the same requires. In this case it Incomes as much a gratification to give as to re- ceive. When, however, it is regarded as an expected largesse in every case, tipping becomes an evil and a nuisance. And in the present scheme'of things it must be admitted that tills view of tip- ping is one which is held by the majority of peo- ple. A bill to make tipping illegal will therefore Le regarded, under the circumstances, as a boon. The greatest good which will follow the afiti-" bill, should it become law, -will be that employers of labor mil be forced to pay their employees a reasonable wage. In many the present lime, they evade their responsibilities hy looking to the public to supplement a'duty- which in the lirst instance it should be theirs to perform. The moral effect of tipping on ,the in its creation of fawning characteristics :wbicli' go against the grain of true alone sufficient to condemn the praetice..---For-the-'ne- cessity of the lip, and -the fact that .it is nipt obligatory, places the individual who looks Tor .it in a sorry attitude. This alone is enough-to, con-, demn the system. Again, as it works at present, the-practice'of; tipping is unfair to those of small mearis'wh'oYif they are to expect Ihe like service, feel bound to part with that which the more fortunate would --not miss. In reviewing these evils, the anti-iipping bill, ,on becoming law, must be regarded, part of wholesome legislation. TEMPERANCE REFORM; AT the Anglican Synod, held in the PCV. K. J; Roy made wha! a 'describes as a remarkable he said that the Ahglicair Church was not sympatfieiic to temperance reform. In cold print Vthis (leclara- lion certainly does look astounding. .Buflo il'lit sense is not only hut unfair to (lie large body of which the Ilev. ts a member. The temperance question is. qne to 'which church is sympathetic. It is idle to suppose otherwise. On the particular methods of temper- ance reform eyerj' individual and every body may have their own opinions. It does not necessarily follow that if there is not a unanimity of opinion as to a particular method, that any individual or any body are unsympathetic with the main move- merit comprised in temperance reform. The prohibitionists have, their" own .views of the matter, and in the outcome aimed at they, are entitled to every, respect for these views. On the other hand there are those, no less tem- perance reform, who see in prohibition the bring- ing in of greater evils, in the shape, of .secret drinking and an illicit liquor traffic. In this view they are guided by statistics. These give out that in America the liquor bill increases'as prohibition gains also that the prohibition States are; the most drunken in the Union. In English ties and towns, it is said that, the sale of liqiioris in inverse proportion to the number of public. houses, die bars are closed than when theyare open. In Italy-licenses ..are freely granted, the authorities holding that the number .of Jiquor-' shops counteracts the increase of-intemperance.: Again there are; those who hpld.jhat much can be done for'the cause of temperance by seeing 1hat all liquor is sold pure and a stop put to adulteration. Tliese statements may or may.not be believ- ed in. But because every well-meaning person in the cause of temperance refbrm holds his own particular opinion, it is not only foolish, but un- generous, to argue that, because he is not inclin- ed to go to extremes which do not appeal to his judgment for furthering the.cause, he is thereby unsympathetic movement. In the temperance as in other movements, there are bound to be zealots, but it is manifestly unfair that they should condemn those who hold views which in comparison to their own appear moderate. In the condemnation of the church-to which lie belongs, in the attitude to the liquor'question lie lays lo its charge, the Rev. Roy has 'ajlowed his zealto run away with-his better .judgment. OUK POINT OF VIEW It does seem strange that we haven't'liadlnore ain. That recent legislation at Ottawa7 would nun. niake most anything weep.
