TO ENFORCE ACT Police Given Instructions by the Attorney General. The Dominion Lord's Day Act of 1900 went into force on March 1st. The enforcement of the Act remains with tho various provincial governments. No action or prosecution shall be commenced without the con sent of the attorney general. In connection with this' matter rremler Rutherford stated todaythat the government of Alberta would' enforce tho Act. The attorney general's position in tho matter is stated in tho follow  ing I. Iter son t by him to J. O.

AN' IRISHMAN'S JOKE. (Toronto Saturday Night.) A week ago Mr. Peter Ryan of Toronto was on a visit to Montreal. As a matter of course he called on his old friend, Hon. James McShano nowharbor master of the port. Af day 111U" from the House of Com- tor a hearty handshake and a chat $ 'Herald, Lethbridge.

Address........ mons and Senate at Ottawa. Per-^sonally 1 do not think that toe Son-| ate amendment, whereby the consent of tho attorney general in the different provinces is required, will be in any way a detriment to the on-forcoment of the Act. . I can assure you that the enforcement of the | "Sunday 1)1 U" will always havo my /hearty support, as far as tho Province of Alberta is concerned." Further, the attornoy general has sent tho following letter v to all of tho police olHcors in the provinco, which speaks for itself: "I desire to dlrert your attention to tho Domioion Lord's Day Act, being chapter 37 of tho Acts of the Parliament of Canada of lfcOG. and also to chapter 01 of The Conso.l-datod Ordinancee of tho North-West Territories concerning tho profana -tlon of tho Lord's Day; You will observe that by soctlon 13 of the Dominion Lord's Day Act it is 'providod that 'no action or prosecution for a violation of this Act shall be commenced without the leave of tho attorney goneral for the provinco in which the offence is alleged to havo been committed, nor aflor the expiration of sixty days from tho time of the commission of tho alleged offence." "As this Act came into effect on Mutch 1, ,1 havo thought it well to inform you that if you will call my atteution to any violation of tho statute which comes under your notice, and furnish mo with toe particulars ot such violation, I shall give the same immediate attention. I' feel that I can rely with confidence upon you, and upon other officials in your community who have to do with the administration of the law, to take tho accessary steps t6 prevent an infringement of Its provls  Jons. "The intention of parliament in passing the Act was to secure, as CHOICE SELECTED LANDS IN THE DISTRICT ? about old times and politics of the past as compared with those of the present, the talk %urnod to King Ed ' ward. Tho veterans agroed that bar 1 ring the Holy Fathes he waa the first man |On .earth. ' "He's had a fine influence over Lauricr!" remarked Mr. Ryan with characteristic jocularity. "It's a splendid thing ho's done in Influencing tho Government,to recognize St Patrirk's Day." And then Mr. Ryan went on to say that by Government enactment St Patrick's Day in this year of grace would bo observed as .a strict public holiday, and that all Government offices, banks, factories, stores and places of trado would be closed un  dor suvero penalties, and all unnecessary labor suspended for the day. "It will go hard with some, MeShano," said Mr. Ryan, "but/thore's tho law, and they must obey." "Glory be," cried McShane, "but this is a day worth living for, and Lourler's the boy that fears nothing!" "Why don't you write and thank him?" asked Mr. Ryan. "Faith, I'll do more than that, I'll telegraph him the thanks| of the Irishmen of Canada this very day. Horo, whore's my hat and coat?" When last seen Mr. McShane wa� hurrying to the telegraph office.

A Home Thrust. In tho course of an interview with the Calgary Albortan, President Sher man of tho Miner's Union, is reported as having said: The miners are not responsible for the recent increases in the price of coal. As the result of the strike at Lethbridge they had obtained an increase or B cents per ton on the cut- ting price. This was equivalent to a rise of 10 per cent, yet the operators had raised the price SO cents and in some  cases fl per ton. Lethbridge is the only place that has received any Increase in wages for a number of years, yet the wages paid today in Lethbridge are lower -thai) In any other place in the country where camps are organised and they (eel that another Increase is about due." i ;
