He had none y pi^i^^ road canvass^ er and common variety, ^of ,button-..4'^ollng.i candidate. , . : � A. man of strong perBonality, he at-j'itractod;.attention, and aroused hostil-'iiy. There was, perhaps, no man bet--jjer hated .by his foes, ^ and'Do one .more: sincerely admired by-.those who  ;ieftmed to appreciate the trne man. No gag l&vr for Canada. Slfton aitd � progressive Alberta.. Alberta does more work at less cost than any other; province ia the west Great Britain la rolling In wealth. The Bordeu-Pelletler hand out would be as a drop in the bxicket. , What has Jim Cornwall and Mich-enor made out of aU the crisis yams loade^ on the all too credulous Alberta Tory press. Messrs. Mlchener and Tweedle care not how m'jch �'liey damage the credit of the province so long as they think they can scare the electors. Funny, isn't it, but there is no evidence 'Of an emergency dn the naval budget submritad in the British par-lipjnent. The farmer^ of Alberta need very little reminder' municipal commltteo o� thc legislature. At the same time it would be as well not to single out any nationality when making statements about paying taxeq. BETWIXT AND BETWEEN Mr. McKenzie neither sought popularity, nor cared" for the caprices of ficide opinion. He had his own views of what constituted public duty, and followed them^wiaiout regard to what ^is enemies said. In the legislature his kiiowledge of municipal law made him inralttable. He Invariably stood by* the pfsople, and charter mongers received s^ort courtesy from the pro-Tinclal treasurer. Now that he is dead, and political passions will be allayed, Malcolm Mc-Kensla will receive a due meed of praise. He had:his faults, but they were-the shortcomings of,, temperament, and In no way affected his ability. If he had been a smooth,-popularity courting politician, -Malcolm McKenzie'would have been one of. the foremost leaders in the province. Nature didn't equip him with the qual Itlea which win the huzzas of the crowd, and. a weU-Jntentioned, able maa^-Taa frequently cruelly misjudged;- -When the history of this" prov-Incei is wltten in after days by men free from the political passions of the moment, Malcolm ' McKenzie's name will. lend lustre to the page as a man who appreciated the privileges and frights of the people, and did what he thought was Tight, regardless of consequences politically. MJtlcdlm 'McKenzie is d^ad, and Alberta Is the'losw, , � - The other day a prominent business man of Taher was passing the vacant spot In Macleod where the new municipal building .is to be located. The escavation has already been made, ready for the contractor, to get busy when the birds b^gin to warble. He was with an old' and, dear Macleod friend, but it was a case of near-blows when the Taberite was so unkind, as to remark: "Say, George, I didn't know you had a municipal gravel pit, too.'"^ Magistrate Elton has copped off five pairs of whfte gloves in one week. What can the fly cops he doing? It is so unlike JLethbridge.  � � The other morning a gentleman of Jewish extraction stood at the bar in police court. He had been hauled up before the beak for some minor "offence. In fact he had felt the steels on his wrists. When the.cadi heard what it was all. about, and the gentleman from the. ancient land bad er-plained himself, the. -presiding elder asked: "Why didn't you tell .that to the officers?" "How could I? How could I?" while his hands described the usual characteristic motion ;of th^. Hebrew. The steels on his wrists solved the mystery, - - � _ ; .�  *,' Heinz's drnnmier. was in the city yesterday.

This is to be.commended. "While; its members have got the campaign spirit It would not be untimely to bring to their attention the (tisiraiblUy of holding a "Sweet Pea iiiid Flower Show.'' This should be a �feature of the coming summer, and  rfprts would be wisely*, spent in bringing about an event which will not .only, arouse.general interest, but ho ;.tbe means of addingto the beauty �I .;,thft city. :^ultIvatlon of the sweet pea, and there hav^,been gardens here, which have been veritable bowers of beauty with the plant as an ornament. To encourage its growing and to make the cultivation more general, a flower show with the'sweet pea as the distinguishing centre would help much. Leth-.brldge deserves such a show and. Independently of cut exhibits, prizes could he donated to gardens containing specimens in the best stages of growth, �There is no reason why the Idea should not materialize, and it Is one which we feel sur^ will catch on tremendously.

Some of us would do pretty well these days with, a-credit a million strong, especially since the bank managers and.^.he loan' companies are pleasantly engaged "putting the ucrews" on.

' This is the issue which the Liberals have been discussing for days. They have discussed it earnestly, soberly and'well. Their speeches have been sober and. reasonable. They have been fighting for principles, and in .tlie fighting they have sKowa their appreciation of the vital importance of ,'the issue.

In effect, there are two parties ifi congress today-one conservative, the other radical.. ' - �'.j;t>-'-t.:o�;i.v ? �, servlce'by such talk, which is worse than foolish. The people thus ti-aduced are a most valuablei element of- the population ot this country. They bring with them .special experience and special knowledge of the working out or the agricultural problems in this western country in which they are not equalled by the settlers who ^come to vis from any other part,of the world; They have an Innate "respect for our laws aijd institutions, and no people in Canada today are keener oa educating,their children and bringing" them up patriotic and loyal Canadians. As a matter , of fact,', great numbers of these people, are Canadians by birthj or the children of Canadians who. moved to 'the United States .a generation ago. ' i It is particularly unseemly, for the representative of Calgary in the Dominion parliament to traduce the I people in i this country w^ho hail from the United States at the same time as the Industrial commissioner of Calgary is crusading in the United States to induce United States manufacturers to locate in Calgary and toJnyite,United States people to move to Calgary telling them that they will, be made cordially -welcotoe:' JMr. Bennett's performance Is entirely of. a piece with 'the cheap flag-waving and. loyalty^ shouting which was used la the campaign against ieciprociiy and which is, manifestly getting to be the last resort of the upholders of the Borden naval policy.
