IGNORANT OF CONDITIONS .85 1.60 libelous circular It is all very The Deputy Minister of Agriculture makes the lame excuse that the peo- ple in the south who arc giving pub- licity to the reference to dry fanning in the circulur sent out by him, are doing more damage to the district than the alleged could have done. well for Mr. llarcourt to put thai diagnosis on the case but it will take him a month of Sundays to convince the people of Southern Alberta thai he is not palpably ignorant of con- ditions in this part oi the province. A man sitting in un otlice at Edmon- ton, all the year round can never get into close touch with agriculture in Alberta. The sooner Alberta a deputy minister who is acquainted with the province as a whole and not a little circle within which his revolving alike chair moves the better. Mr. Jiarcourt may make explanations from now until dooms- day but he cannot clear himself of the charge that he made statements in an. oilicial circular that were an absolute misrepresentation. The circular may not do any dam- age. People are learning rapidly that the south is the greatest grain growing district of Alberta and all the circulars that the department of agriculture can send out cannot bury the actual facts, However Southern Alberta wants as the deputy head of the Depart- THE SPKAKEH OF THE U.

When asked to express him- self on a public question he frequent ly linds that Jus mind is a complete blank except for a very vivid recol- lection of a former acquaintance of his named "Eph." "Eph" was an old darky who usei to live in Mr. Cannon's town in Indiana when Mr, Cannon wits a little boy. One day "Eph" uud "Joe" went oil together to see a me- nagerie that was visiting a neighbor- ing village. They arrived finally in front of a cage in which there u. very black but very manlike ape. "How is said "Eph." The ape said nothing. "How is repeated "Eph." htill the ape said nothing. "Dat's right, oP shouted as the ape's wisdom burst in upon him, "yo' jest keep yo' mouf svork may be started before summer is over. C. R. survey parties worked all last summer in this district, running lines preparatory to the contemplat- chaise The new line will be a little longer than the present one but the advan- tages to be gained in the matter of gradients will afford practically a roud.

This affecting picture of the dangers of loquacity impressed Mr. Cannon deeply. He has never since allowed iiimsflf to say anything that would make tlu? public set him to work on agitation for a new idea. The first stago in his treatment of a new idea is silence. Not only has he never or- iginated a new idea, but he has nev- er discussed one at its start. CAR OF Hardware MAKES CHANGES IN CROW LINE ment of Agriculture a man, who is an authority on agricultural condi- tions throughout the whole- province. We want a man who is considerably more careful in composing circulars, whether for limited or extended cir- culation, than Mr. llarcourt. What Mr. llarcourt remarked in circular is pretty nearly certain to be his opinion as an official of the province. That's the complaint Sou- thern Alberta has to make. We want officials who know what they are ing about and Mr. llarcourt has cer- tainly established he is not- in that class. Frank, June changes in the track of the the Crow's Nest line of the C. P. R. in this district are contemplated, which, when the is done, will mean the expendi- ture of several hundred thousand dol- lurs. The plans for the work are com- pleted and have been approved but nothing definite is known as yet when the work will start. The change is part of the C. P. R.'s grade revision scheme, promul- gated over a year ago, whereby the company proposes to reduce the grad- es on all western lines to the mini- Coleman.

Watson, one of the fire boss es has indeed proved herself worthy of the name. Through storm or sun- shine she walked to Slavtown nearly half a mile and there carefully "U ed and waited upon a Slav woumu who is dying of lung trouble. This she has continued to do for several weeks past, the thorough training she received in hospitals in Scotland standing her in good stead. Need- less to say her services are much ap- preciated by the family und all kinds oi blessings are called down upon her head. On Wednesday evening about forty of his people nitit at the home of ifr. Matfield to say farewell to Rev. Mr. Webb of the English Church. A num- ber of songs appropriate to the oc- casion were sung and several address- es were made. Alr: G. Porter spoke as a citizen and expressed his sorrow at seeing him go. Mr. French, the edi tor of "The Coleinau Miner" spoke as a member of his congregation expressed the extreme pleasure he al- ways took in working with Mr. Webb and his hope that one equally as con- genial might be sent to take his place.

"If any clergy- man takes upon himself to disregard the orders of the church lie must be answerable first to myself and then to the court of this the bishop said. Rev. George Rousfield took a different view of the ease. Hej held that circumstances altered cases, and that in districts where the hold 01 the church on the people was not strong the clergy might with justice allowed to defer to the will of in- dividuals in regard to the celebration of marriages and baptisms in private houses. "If no such deference is al- said he, "the people will turn lo the ministers of denominations which allow these ceremonies." Several clergyman were on their feet preparing to speak when the chan- cellor of the diocese stated that Mr. Bousfield was out of order, and the discussion closed.

The vote shows that prac- tically all the property owners in the city are in favor of the progressive policy of Mayor Henderson and his colleagues. We can now look forward to im- proved streets anil walks, an up to date fire hall and a much needed mar ket. With them our status as a city will be much more firmly founded. The Herald wants to say right here that much credit is due to Mayor Henderson for the progressive spirit that is characterizing this year's council. He has already proved that he realizes the needs of the city. His plans have not nil boon carried out yet and other important bylaws will be submitted to the electors during the next few months. mum. The plau.s call for the moving of the track from Brocket on the eas' to a little west of Blairmore on the west and between the two points the road will be practically rebuilt. It will be wholly so except as to that portion running through Frank. The proposed line leaves the pre- sent track at about Brocket and runs north of the present road. T he sta- tion at Pincher City will be moved north several hundred feet and the line will run something like a mile north of Cowley. It is said to be the intention to move the town of Coivley to the new line- Coming further west, the line cross- es to the south of the present track ;md instead of crossing the Old Man at the present bridge ,it the falls, will keep on the bench and cross at the Big Bend near Henry Gibeau's ranch. It then takes to the table land on the north and comes into Bcllevue through the townsite, giving Bellevue a station, and coining on to the slide, keeps above the present track until the top of the hill is reached when it joins the present track thus dispensing altogether or practically so, with the two per cent, grade of the present time. Through Frank the track will be as at present, it i.s said, but nearing spoke in his ofUcial capacity when he voiced his great regret at the nec- essity of parting with Mr. Webb and concluded by presenting him, on be- half of the congregation, with a Qlled purse. Music and dancing con- cluded the evening. Rev. Mr. Webb left Thursday night by the midnight express to join his brother at Ponoka, near Edmonton and will see what ranch life will do for him. Again we arc doomed to disappoint ment for again it is raining and; the creeks running into Old Man River and the river itself are higher than ever. Today the water of the creek had commenced to flood the H.N.W. M.P. stable which is on a knoll in the centre of the stream. It was found necessary to build a dam to turn the waters past the building. A good job was made of it though it meant the flooding of the Oat space Lethbridge's First Swell Chinese and Japanese Store Carrying a complete stock of Silks and Fancy Goods, Cigars, Tobaccos, Fruit Confectionery I Is Open Today An invitation is given to all to visit the store and inspect our stock KNOCKING THE WEST Blairmore, the line again diverges and passes through Blairmore along the bench on the north side of town. It is said that the old line will not bo taken up but will be left to serve the coal mines now established along it. The Peterborough Review believes that the welfare of the Conservative party and of the Canadian West are not identical. Jt therefore sacrifices the latter in the interests of the for- mer.

Few towns in the West have ijccti as busy as this one during tnc past week. The council passed an uOmir- able bylaw doing away with stove- pipe chimneys and as a result in spite of the rain, active op- erations along that lino have gone on. The recent improvements have been made in the chimneys, the additions made to tho nre brigade, the new appliances, increased length of hose, extra hydrants and olher things for fighting fire, have led the fire underwriters to give notice of a ten per cent, reduction from the pre- sent rates on all new policies writt-rn after May 30th.

It was Op- timist Sunday and the philosophy of making the best of and seeing the best hi everything was exponuded by ministers of all creeds and denom- inations. That was all. The sermons wore by members of the Optimist Club of Now Jersey, the newly incorporated "smite" tion which has boon taken so sorious- ly in New Jersey that the most prom- inent business, profession, religious and financial men in the State have joined in the movement to drive pes- simism from business and society.

At 4 o'clock fast train No. 529, with ten cars behind a powerful locomo- tive whirled over the shining rails and bore down, rumbling and roaring to the place where the baby was play- ing in the white sand. The conduc- tor was John Bulin, and Engineer Lewis was at the throttle. Lewis, leaning from his cab window was horrified to see the tiny body suddenly grasped by the suction of the train and drawn beneath the wheels of the forward car between the front and rear trucks. There was not much else to do but to .-top the train, and Lewis stopped it, leaping from his engine and run- ning back with the conductor and a score of curious passengers. But when they got back a hundred yards or more there was the baby sitting in the middle of the track. -ONE ROCHON'S ICE CREAM BRICKS It just the thing for an evening like this PHOSE WHEN THE RIVER ROSE "I suppose you have considerable floating population inquired the visitor. replied the native of the little river town, 'specially durin' the rainy Weekly.
