A couple of months ago the Herijld made the suggestion that the city commissioners, when impoitant bylaws are before -the people, should make a special effort to give the burgesses an explanation of the objects of the bylaws other than the explanations which may be contained in the advertisements, which, to tell flic truth, are rather dry reading. It will be noted, in another column turnnissioners have adopted tins suggestion. The Herald is pleased that they have done so, and is glad td e them the space for then- purpose. The burgesses should now have an intelligent concep- tion of the measures to be on in July, and _ able to offer the excuse should they, they had done diflerentlyt that they didn't know what they viere for. is the reason. Wiry, they ask, does, the govern ment endeavor to help us dispose of our wool when they are doing their utmost to keep us Iron raising it? OTJK POINT OF VIEW Men of the cloth in old England have solvee the suflragette hunger strike problem. "Let 'em they'say. Eflecbve, no doubi, but nofwha you 'would call chaiitable. The six -money bylaws are advertised today Read them through and don't make the excuse on July 5 that you don't know what jou are vot- ing about. WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT'S POLICY? tt f have 6500 head of said a prominent '1 rancher the other day, "and'4500 6t them are, for sale" were not for sale because the rancher wantciJ to sell. He was very anxious lo retain, thcni. Then what as wrong? If the Dominion wills, the problem can be solved At the pieseiit fame one of the'Domfnion re- presentatives, a wool expert, is in Alberta en- dejivoring to establish permanent organizations through which sheepmen ma> be advised of rul ing market prices on wool in the world's mar kets. These organizations are primarily promdt cd in order thai they may get in touch with mar ket requirements, with the aid of the government graders, combine to meet these re quiremenTs. The idea is" an excellent one, ant heartily commends it. There can be no doubt but what the idea would work righ here in Southern Alberta. Since the removal of the tariff on wool enter- ing the United States, competition in buying rhas been and the wool men have obtained bij advances in the prices paid for their .product. Nevertheless; these prices would be stillbetter if the government grades, which An eastern cartoonist depicts Hon.

The Canadian Northern Marysfield branch is located about 12 miles north of the scene of operations. Let's hope the rumor is cor- rect. It may jog, the construction of the line up a little. v 1he American grades, "were adopted by the asso- ciations. The plan would work out in the same way the grading of grain did, to the advantage of the producer. But what is the use of grading the the government stands in the way of the raising of the article? ,The Southern Alberta sheepman's problem is a problem of the range. If lie does not gfil range, out of business he goes. True, with the influx of settlers, the range is cut up and divided into farms which produce more than the land possibly could as grazing land. But there are thousands of acres along the loolhills that would make excellent sheep grazing land, and which are not used for any purpose. The government's promises of aid in this re- spect arc a matter of ancient liislory. They have been made every year for the'past five. This year they granted range accommodation in the Livingstone Valley for head of sheep. The ignorance of those who profess to wish to help the sheepmen was exposed the minute this grant vyas announced, as evidenced by the pertinent re- rnark, "What are you going to do with Southern other .addressed to one of the members of the commission. The sheep- men are of the opinion that the government ofl'er- efi them what the cattlemen could not use, and they arc .provoked.

We.hope the wool men of the south will appreciate the efforts put forth lo secure this educative collection, and that they wilt turn out in force to view it. From all accounts it is the best exhibit ever shown in the west costing many thousands of dollars. OTHER VIEVTPOINTS _Yum, Yum!
