PRAISE FOR W. H. FAIRFIELD (Calgary Albcrtam} The people of Southern Alberta have not arisen to the occasion yet. and do not seem to realize the tri- umph secured when Alberta red. grown in AJberta, won the first prizo in the hard.winter wheat class at the recent Farming Con- gress in Cheyenne. ...And when the people of Southern, Alberta begin to understand this, then the people from other parts of Canada will beijin to understand it. But the millers of the world, who are in search of the best that. tractive there is in raw material, already un-' trade, derstand the meaning of the contest. with the .United States', tfa- der the Literal Government of Great Britain, more freedom has been al- lowed Canada in this respect than before. If a reciprocity troatv to be discussed ami arranged now, it likely that Canada would allowed to conduct all the neiro- tiations. subject only to the assist- ing and guiding hand of the British ambassador at Washington. Point. Number Two. There has been much talk for rnanv years about an Imperial army. in. which colonists would be represented, on equal terms. It has fallen, to tho lot of a member of the present As- quith government to work out a scheme for a General Staff which which meets the approval of the Aus- tralian and Canadian governments. This staff is the first step in an. Im- perial army which will consist of a number of 'distinct units orphanizeri. en a system which will jwrmit CO-OD eration in periods of "great neces- sity." This is Point Number Three. These should be sufficient to show that the Liberal Party as a whole'is not anti-Imperial.

Phillips AAPatteson Phone 70 Office In Nelson Gow's Store A WRONG PERSPECTIVE Daily come despatches telling oi promising young men and older men of good repute being brought face to face with the inevitable result of wrong-doing. Everyone who reads of Fred A. Lee, or Banwell, or of de- faulting bank presidents or employees, cashiers, secretaries or such as Chief of Police Malone wonders why the men were such fools as to do as they did. It is not that the fallen men were evilly inclined but that their judgment was not true. They had an erroneous idea of their own abiL ity to evade the results thai they knew had been inevitable in every other case. There was, too, a. twist- ed moral sensibility, not criminally inclined, but not exactly true. There was not a correct conception of the relationship existing between a small trespass and the grosser "crime. Fore- sight is lacking. Had IMalone look- ed ahead to see what he was leading himself and his family to, he would have nesitated. before committing the first themt. If Lee had forseen what everyone else could see, a life in; prison and a. disgraced home, he would not have "fixed" the "bank's books the first time.
