I am making it in the open, on the public platform, where I may be call- ed to account. I note that Premier Borden issues a statement to the effect that our Royal and patriotic Governor-General did not refuse .his appeal for an election. I care not who makes a denial. I repeat that I know, upon indisputable authority, that the government was prepared to bring on an election last October and again this June. And I say further- and I know it to be a the governmeent discussed the matter with the Governor-General. I do not claim to know what was said, hut I do know that the government had to drop its election plans for the time G. P.

This entire country loofcs on account o! its rolling character it im- presses., one with its picturesnueness. The people who are located within its confines are as high a class as can bo found in any of the rural districts of Alberta. All that Is needed to make them happy and contented and to en- sure their permanent residence in the district are a couple of real good OUR POINT OF VIEW LETHBRIDGE A CONVENTION CITY Lethbridge IB holding its own a Convention City. We do not want to be too modest, so we unhesitating- ly declare that there is no city in Alberta that :s more attractive as a convention point in the summer months than Lethbridse. If this statement is doubted, try a conven- tion here and foe lltisfled. On July 1st of this year the Grand Lodge of the Sons ot England holds its annual convention in Lethbridge. The Grand Lodge is not very large, out there will be representatives pre- sent from all the principal centres of the province, and it should be seen that they are given hospitable treatment while they are in the city. Next year it has already been de- cided that the convention of the Wo- men's Auxiliary of the Calgary Dio- cese of the Anglican Church and the Alberta Methodist Conference will -meet here. The attendance at these gatherings is usually very large. The Methodist Conference will have sev- eral' hundred delegates who will ibe in the city for over a 'week. We are sure that these organizations after one convention in Lethbridge will'be only too anxious to come tback again. The London Times has one warm and faithful advocate in Canada, the Toronto News, edited cby Sir John Willison, the highly paid Cp.nadian correspondent of the Times. No oae will surprised, and consequently no one will take the News' defence 3f the Northcliffe interests very ser- ously. The C. P. R. proposes to close the station at New Dayton and the Rail- way Commission has deferred action or three months. That will mean the month of September, and it looks to us as though by that time there would be every warrant for the station be- ing kept open. Should the crop yield as heavy as indications point to at present the railroad will find New Dayton Nation one of the busiest on the Coutts line. A COUNTRY TRIBUTARY TO LETHBRIDGE The Sweetgrass Hills do not tower as high as the mountains, but the country which stretches up into those hills is very similar in appearance to the foothill country around Pincher Creek and west of Cardston. It may be atid that the country lying south o the Milk River in Alberta is a land o hlRs and dales: it is certainly a very rolling'country. Running down what] we call the coulees are creeks which, !n gome hare been utilized for irrigatinc the low lands. Thie irriga- tion has been applied at the Deer Creek ranch with such- success that the illilfl grown there is ai good as any to be found in Alberta. Norman Dickinson, who is an old-time ranch- has a .ranch farther up Deer afterwards awarded the V.C., which Queen Victoria pinned on him. As time went on he gradually rose rank, and when a captain, at the age of twenty-seven, he married Miss Novah Bews.

How beautifully inconsistent the To- ronto paper is. The Borden govern- ment is beyond criticism, it thinks, but the British government can't be criticized too much. What a delight- tullj consistent attitude? witness 'before the Royal Com- mission at Winnipeg said he had been told by somebody else, who se- cured the information from somebody else, that Kelly, the parliament build- ing contractor, contributed to the campaign fund of the Liberals in the provincial elections of 1814.
