COURTHOUSE FACTS MORE USELESS OPPOSITION Tiie Conservative party are display- ing their usual lack of a easo in thvir "pposition to Mackenzie King, who having been appointed minister of la- b-'T. goes back to his consmueney for reelection. One of the arguments used against him is that he is TOO young for the position, being only thirty-four years of age. It is not 1 ng since the Tory party were asking for tile retirement of Hon. -Win. Pater- son, Sir Richard Canwrighl and other cabinet ministers because they w.-re i'.'-.' old. There is a limit in all cases of course, but anyone looking at ;he. matter fairly must acknowledge that the latter are young enough to serve i the country with acceptance and that' Mackenzie King, with his experience; and training is old enough to fill the j position, much better than other men! twice age who have had his I training and experience in matters! pertaining to labor. The laboring men who after all are mainly concerned' in the appointment, have no objec- tion to Mr. King's appointment but on the other hand are heartily corn- mending it.

PARTICULARS OF SUNDAY'S DROWNING ACCIDENT Further particulars have been re- ceived regarding the drowning acci- d.'iit last Sunday when Miko I'ultun- narchuk and John Coselak lost their I lives in (lie treacherous Belly river. j The two men had been fishing in the j river near an island near the pump house of No. C shaft and about live miles down stivam from the big bridge. Tlie channel between the island and the shore was smooth wi.'ter and at one place was easily forded for the water was only deep enough to take j a man to his waist. The two men.1 Valamiiiirchuk and Coselak were fish i ine while their companions Lazaruk and a were watohinng fri'in bank. Tils' two fishers wished to cross vt'r to tlif island and started in to ford across at the poinnt rather than go up j .-tream to the shallow ford. The spec- tators warned them to cross but they replied that couW swim and waded into the water dressed as they w.-re in their heavy miners' clotliing and boots. Coselak went right out of sight in some deep but Pal- amnarehuk came up and yelled f--r! help. None of ihe c-'inpanions _ on! shore couid swim and no help could i iriven until too late. is piemy of quicksand even i along tiie shore out of the water and j besides there are treacherous under-! currents so it was certainly a very j foolhardy thing to do to attempt to i One car on Track Prince Edward island i Maclntyre Potatoes The MET Co.

GOOD PROSPECTS The reports from all owr the pro- vince indicate that tho crops of Al- berta will be fully up to.the of previous years. Although the sea- son was late yet the weather lias been such as to make the growth verv rapid. The backward spring has pro- bably prevented a very large increase in i-crcage but with average condi- tions from now until harvest the to- ul poiiuct should be somewhat larger than that Of last year. The different kinds of seasons that have come in the past two or three years are giving the agricultural students ample basis! for investigation as to the best man- ner of farming in this province. TWIN CITIES OR ONE CITY It looks as though Edmonton and Strsthcnna wore to be joined togeUver by a high-level bridge. The C. P. R, and tho city counncil of Edmonton have come to an agreement and al- though the agreement has to be .sub- mitted to the people it is hardly like- ly tliat they will vote clown the osition. The bridge will mean a great deal to the twin cities and will be the means of building more closely together the interests of the two cities. Already there has b.-en considerable) discussion of a union of the two cities! find it. is to bo expected that the join- ing of tho cities in a business way will aid very m.'iterially in the move- ment for the joining of the munici-i palitios. There are many arguments j both for against, such a union es-j pecially from the standpoint of the i smaller city. To the outsider the pro-; position to unite the citios on an j equitable basis looks like u good one. I SPECIAL CUT ON SUMMER FOOTWEAR Girls' White Canvas Oxfords, Spring Heel.
