THE WEEKLY HERALD ,'iib'ished every Wednesday ID eight or more fifii, and contains a ttwntrjr of the newi ot the week, local and dMriot I rear In advance............. monUn In MM The Home of Good Gas Goods I LETHBRIDGE AND THE FARMERS. V I ICE-PRESIDENT BURY'S statement of crop itions appearing in another column are reassuring Mr Burj' intimates, after a study o conditions following an extended trip through the south, that there is no need to worry so "far ana! if conditions from now on to harvest tune are normal, a good crop will be garnered. This is pleasing news to ever3'body in Leth- bridge, the business men especially The pasl lew weeks been wearing on the nerves, bul with the rains of the past week growth has been reviied. and norms! CGadiiicns will induce con- fidence. What Mr. Burj has to say about the methods of some of our farmers, however, is not so re- assuring. We know that they are on the way to better things, for it is generally admitted that the crops sown tins jear. are on better prepared soil lhan in any previous spring But this is not far enough. The farmers a long way to go yet before they bnng land to that high state of production of which it is possible And peihaps the farmers are not altogether to blame for not making more rapid progress. Mr. Burj', we think, pointed out one reason which can be laid at the doors of the towns and cities. In failing to co-operate with the farmers to establish the best possible market conditions, the iirban centres been woefully lacking We Sre finding out our error now. and should make plans to remedy the situation The Herald be- lieves that the city of, Lethbridge lias thrown away enough money in an endeavor to bnng here industries that would come of .their own accord when the farming population of Southern 'Alberta is larger and more .prosperous, to have solved the question of markets. And.if we had had that question solved three 6r four j'ears ago, we believe there would have been less vacant land today within a ten-mile radius of -thecity. The Board of Trade and citj- council have endeavored in a desultory to reach a solution this year. Nothing tangible is in evidence yet. Are .we go- ing to stop where we are? Have we lain down on the job? a leader in social thought in wild and woolly Al- berta and as the article is warm, even if it does wander in the main outside the pale of truth, the editor of Cotton's dished it up to his readers, he- lieving that he had a real scoop. BJght here we wish to apologize to our read- ers for paying so much attention to "Tumultu- ous" Edwin, and if the reputation of Lethbridge were not at stake, and if commission government and municipal ownership had not been slammed by a party on whom, in spite of his experience in the field of politics, the light has not broken, would not have been guilty of putting before our readers the ebullitions of T; Edwin. T Edwin has nerve. After fighting corpora- tions fo'r jears as part of his daily bread, he does a double somersault, and lands with both feet on niblic ownership. Lethbridge has a street rail- way sjstem built with money. The money came from somewhere? T. Edwin supplies the an- grasping ratepayers built it. And now ihat the grasping ratepayers'presume to dictate he general policy on which it shall be managed T. Ed goes oft., at half cock, in wholesale male- diction of the ratepayers, the commissioners, thp newspapers, municipal ownership, commission government, and the whole scheme of'present- lay civilization. Truly T. Edwin is a hard parly to please. But, nevertheless, his prevarications will be highly (leasing to the millionaire owners of lighting, treet railway and other public eastern Canadian cities. We feel sure they would gladly nit him on the payroll as publicity agent in their ight against municipal ownership. T. Edwin might a job in Montreal, say.-thereby re- ieving Southern Alberta of a great burden. Again we' apologize to our readers for forcing he tumultuous one upon them.

PJione 1510 EUKEKA, FIRST TO ARRIVE ON SCENE OF EMPRESS DISASTER OUR POINT OF VIEW Come again Monsieur J. Pluvius. lie good-work. Keep up A TRAVESTY ON LETHBRIDGE. 'T'HE most perfect gem of superheated 'blink ever unloaded on an unsuspecting public ap- pears in its entirety in another column of -this issue. It is in the form of an article from the facile pen of T. Edwin Smith, and appeared in the last issue of Cotton's Weekly just to hand, under the caption "City of Lethbridge on the in Municipal Ownership or Com- mission Government for Workers." Evidently "tumultuous" Edwin doesn't like Lethbridge. We doubt very much if he likes him- self. His epistle to tlie S. P. of C. would be cir- cumstantial evidence in a. court of law that Tu- multuous Edwin is suffering from a severe at- ;tack of sour stomach, superinduced, no doubt, by the fact that he was subtracted from a perfectly, good hundred dollar bill just about a year ago when he essayed to put McLean hors de combat in the contest for the Lethbridge dis- trict riding representation at Edmonton. The memory of that hundred dollar touch lingers in Edwin's mind, and he sees through a glass darkly. T. Edwin proceeds to spill .'worth of pent-up spleen all over the fair name of Lethbridge. Knowing that he is known in.Al- and could get no respectable paper lo print Mi maunderings at first hand, he falls back on official organ of the S. P. of C., published in jCowansvjlle, long way from home. Evi- idently the travesty on Lethbridge proved a sweet morsel for the publisher of Cotton's, for he pro- Deeded io splash it in large splashy splashes over JMie front page of his sheet. As "Tumultuous" is. Have j'ou planned your holiday j-et? This is important. Your body has jus't as much right to a rest as your horse. If it doesn't get it, it may burn out. .Dominion Government, steamer, first to answer call of the doomed Empress, of Ireland. LIFE-SAVING London, June Burns, presi- dent of the Board of.Trade, has is- sued new rules In regard to life-sav- ing appliances on merchant, ships, are to come into operation on July 1914, Their .general effect is that all sea-going vessels, passenger and otherwise, shall' carryr ample- ap- pliances for all on board in. case of accident. As to foreign-going passenger steam- ers, including emigrant ships, tlley shay carry "lifeboats ia such n'lujir aud of such aggregate capacity as shall be sufficient to accomodate the total number of persons which Is car- ried, or which the ship is-certified to carry, whichever number is the great- er." One approved life-jacket shall bo carried for each person on board and in addition, a sufficient number of ap- proved life-jackets of a size suitable for children. To show piano students the.correct positions of the fingers and wrists is the purpose of a new stereoscope which carries a number ot pictures on passes behind a lens. Mr.'Bury of the C. P. R. says what the cities should do is to provide the farmers with the best possible markets. Queer, isn't it, but neverthe- less true, that the cities vote consistently that the farmers shall sell in restricted markets. Then when dull times come, how lavish the citizens of those same cities are-with advice, to the farmers how to make themselves and'the country pros- perous. OTHER VIEWPOINTS Lubricated Language.
