Blbcrta DAILY AND WEEKLY Proprietors and Publithers THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PRINTING COMPANY LIMITED 323 6th Street South, Lethbridge W. A.

It is net only to the individual farmer iu dry-farming areas that the necessity of is proclaimed so loudly these it comes with a forte Hriik-h shouM peat to authority as 'constituted in Governments. Much money has liton sjipnl on col- onization In the wisdom of the savins thut a bird in ihe hand is worth two in the bush, would it not be a wise policy to spend money in keeping the settlers we have? The wisdom of this is strongly sveu when 'attention is drawn to an area, by no means unimportant, .such as Suuthcrn Alberta where the problem is not so much the bringing in of new settlers as ot keeping those we have. Given Irrigation the great evil that menaces the farmer here and in similnr areas. that of. soil drifting, can be overcome Sir. C. A. Ma grain during his last Tlslt to, laid it down that there Is no enterprise in the East, or West thql will yield results from the expenditure of in getting greater production better than irriga- tion. "There is no said, "in my judgment where money can tie put to better in a national way- than in greater production." The judgment' which Mr, used was the ripe nnd mature judgment of a man %vho is thoroughly familiar with condi- tions in Southern Alberta. No weightier judgment' can be brought lo bear on the solution of Southern Alberta's problem than his. .Much is being done in a campaign for7 industrial development and coloni- zation in the West. The campaign is irell directed. But in its relation to Southern Alberta and to areas where like conditions prevail it would gain in value.were there (he firm founda- tion to build on which irrigation will furnish. the drifting poll caused by winds, governments, both, federal and provincial, should have had the lesson brought home to them thai irri gation in part cf the country u emphatically a national and provin cial concern.

IMMEDIATE APPLICATION OF NEW TAXATION Ai the time tho new Hudget taies came into effect, which was immedi- ately after the Budget speech, the question wag raised locally, as it lias been raised elsewhere, as to ibe legal- ity of their thus "coming inlo force on mere press notices, or Before they were endorsed by Parliament. The point referred to has been dis- cussed ID the Journal of Commerce aud in the fact that its editor is Hon. vV. S. Fielding, a former Minister of Finance, ihe reasons he gives for the validity of the immediate application may, Dealing with tho question" of the legality of the immediate application if' the new taxes, the Journal of Com- merce says lhat if it were possible to bring the issue into court, on the contention that the application o! the tax was illegal, the court would decide for the individual.
