There Is one regrettable feature, however, w ill hsve to 'be eliminated if this support is to be continued. The plajers .ire not to blame, nor does it appear that the managements are, .but some authority must step in and put a stop to the use of Improper ian triage by some of the spectators. Those to whom such, language Is objectionable have Just reason to com plain of some language used by booze- laden irertators, who, in their escite and partizanship come out words and expressions that grate painfully on the ears of those who do not such language themselves and object to ladies who may be with hearing them People who are enthusiast! 'in sports will not attend games of any kind where there Is a risk to listen to language that is insulting and degrading. The managements should make a request to the police authorities to deal with, parties who are guilty ot the offence. This nould guarantee safety from such language and insure much larger crowds There Is no complaint ag- ainst the plaj era who have always in a gentleman- ly manner in this respect, but some of the spectators must be dealt with. Reciprocity not Unsound MH BORDEN'S statement the reciprocity agreement came before the Parliament and peoole of Canada without wiiri. ing is not .exactly according to the facts. It was a matter of common knowledge ihat President Taft .sent ambassadors to Ottawa to nego- tia'p if possible an agreement for re- ciprocal trade. Mr. Borden must have known, SB did every one else in this country, that later Canadian re- presentatives met President Taft and his colleagues at a clty'in New Yolk State, and that itill later Messrs fielding and Paterspn went to Wash Ington to complete th'e arrangements This uss not all done In, a corner In day or'a week, but extended oiei the larger part of a year. Before the agreement [were anonunced, Mr. Borden. himself I made a public statement .that reci- procity either make or break the Launei government." He sure- ly was not talking in a dream. Not onl> it known in Canada, but it was known, to .the people of Great Britain, and there wa! consid- erable discussion over the part taken or not taken by Ambassador Bryce in the negotiations. Certain members of the British opposition wanted to have the government advise Mr. Brjce to prevent the ag- reement being completed For weeks and months the people of Canada were the agree- ment, arid Mr. Borden cannot say that It came upon either the neople or the parliament unawares or sud- 'flerily. Results of Imperial Conference THE conference the Imperial Council Is over, and statesmen throughout the" Empire are cal culatlng its benefits. It has been a great conference, and many very im -portAnt matters, have been diKUSsid and passed upon. While, of course, it would be a difficult matter to estimate 'accurately tile direct benefit! that will accrue from the there is no doubt that much has been 'accomplished in bringing the ent component parts of the Empire closed together with a better under- standing of the relations. exist- ing1 among them. To what extent this has been done cannot be fully known, as It Is obvious that many of the -im portant affairs of the Empire mult necessarily have been discussed pri- vately in order that toe deliberations nade and opinions expressed may not become the common property of the whole world. But such ts has given out to the public indicates, that all of the self-governing nations that comprise the Empire are of heart mind regarding The overseas ax- pressed some complaints regarding certain nutters under the control ot the Home government, and that body has shown a willingness to meet complaints and rectify them.

Ths Lethbridge Board of Trade has aken a full page advertisement in the Empire number of the London Times. This certainly shows that rfthbridge people have enterprise. from the standing of. the times am- ong the moneyed men of Great Bri- tain it ought to attract considerable attention. Put It Up to Him (Saskatoon Phoenix) A Manitoba inan writing in the rain Growers'. Guide, advises the farmers, when they nieet .Mr. Borden, to press for free gasolinei coal oil and cement as well as Implements and grains. He says: "Gasoline is only ten-cents a gal- on across the line and oil nine to 13 cents and fifty cents duty, on cement. It looks like injustice however it is ooked at, and. the road looks long that leads to the end of. the injustice being borne by the common people." Yes, put it up to Mr: Borden, by all means, and see him wriggle! On none of the articles mentioned is there any crying need for orotection. The gaso- Ine and oil industries are inconsider- able; and the history of the. cement ruet that the people need pro- action from the trust, not the trust !rom competition.-' Tryinj to, Sir Wilfrid (Vancouver Saturday Sunset.) Over cour- eoiis old Canadian gentleman, with the suavity and'polished manner of a French seigneur, is giving the world have 'every reason to believe that the Empire can and will present a_ solid front to any nation or combination of nations that may attack in any way. The common citienship of all natural citizens in any part of the Em- pire has been established. The whole of the dominions have approved of the Declaration ot London which, han arked a -distinct advance in reliev- ing the distress and hardship of war. The principle that each dominion should the maiimum' of liberty in dealing with its own affairs has been established more firmly ,lhsn ever: Thene and many other matters of utmost Importance have been pass- ed upon. Canidlins have been most deeply interested in the position held by its representative, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, In the conference.
