Did you see the crowd ot farmers in town Snmrday? Thafs a good sign.

The iroralds advice to the Lcth- and vote for Letbbridge. tht VH>8t intere.�its of J. J. Young, in the Calgary Herald, say.s: "Hut with all this, Edmonton can teach Calgarians one lesson. Hhen a movement for the good of the community is proposed, .vou don't hear a lot of critics and carpers going around imputing mean motives and v.hisforinsr that -some-LkkIv i.s trying So make a big rake-off. lOverybody works with a united will, and all citizens jire truly loyal to each other und to their town." If'.duionton can teach Lcthbrtdgc a smillur lesson. This town is cursed l�y a few knockers, who use the hammer on every occasion possible. A town cannot advance tmless there is unity aiiiongst ifi? cili/ens. One of our e.xchangos came to tis this wiHjk wrapiKHl in one of the pages of a dcpartnit'ittal store catalogue. That is the only use that !;liould be ma�le of looks, though throwing them in the lire might 1m! even better. There is .sound scilsc in the following lemurk ot the Saskatoon Phocn-! ix: ".\ new.spaper'is an institution: Some personality may or moy not be iti (.\'idencx>. Ilut the life o( anj'community i.s bound up with the life of its newspapers. Their interests are identical." mm m .is so far behiiid the territory tributary to it. It is the duty of Ok : ' p�soplo to take all of this into con-tsidcration when they begin to .seri- :ously think of the coming election, ! and how they will vote. � It is all very well to say, "I am a i tiihcral and will stand i)at," or that "1 am a Conservative ant of us are in the west for what we can vdo for ourselves ami our families. Political divisions are all right, yet � there are times when the r|ue.stion of party supremacy'should be relegated to the rear, and the germ of ha'rd. romnion sense take a firm hold. I We alldelight in the expression, 'Watch Lethbridge grow." � 'Are we sincere in this delight'/ If ^ *o, let us stop for a moment and commune together over existing con. iditions. � At the first election hold iii this (Province, the Liberal party was te- * turned by a majority of aS to 2. li goes without saying, therefore, that the Liberals are largely in power,  and that any Liberal, no matter '/whom he might be, would have greater influence with the present -government than any t'onservative. , Jn view of tliese facts. I.othbridge 'should elect the Liberal nominee by (acclamation. We don't expect thai, yet if the people would consider their own welfare rather than partisan .success or partisan p�stigo.

I would rather vote against my parly than against Canadian interests," declared the siteaker later on, and the House chivixMl until the ratters rang. Nothing is more desired by our cattle raisers than the i-einoval of the embargo, and if Mr. OrcenwotMl can succeed in convincing the British Parliament that it should be wi|)cd oil the books, he will have cr man who would tender for this work should be blacklisted.If Fernie can't got its printing done in its own town, it should not be able to get any done out. ol town.

There was pleni.y of sugar in the "lay" ut the Knymond . Board of Trade banquet.

Somebody sent iijc a copy of the Spokesman-Review, of Sriokane, this week. In it was marked an article headed "No Allwrta for Lcblanc. After 1 read what Loblanc had say alMiut our country, it did not take long to decide that the fellow would'nt Imj much good anywhere Ho is a knocker from :Knockervillc He evidently ran against some ran cher who wants Southern Alberta to be forever a grazing country, and loaded his Yankee friend up with lot of rot about frost and a state iiient that live pixr cent, of the cattle died this winter. Whoever heard frost doing any harn^in this coun try. We havo'nt enough frost give us decent ice for curling. As't cattle dying, it is news to this coun try.

P. for York. Mr. Orecnwood is a Canadian, a native of Whitby, Ont., and the "Canada," a paper published in Londbii, Kng., reports a speech he inade rece]nt|y in that city as follows:' - ; . Mr. Orecnwood, who mode . the happiest of chairiheh, in- proposing the toaist" "Canada^" lilluitr trated his remarks , with .huinbr-oiis stories of the nRpst. and ipj politics in 'England, wHich, isypk-ed a stream of witt.v sallies fr��n� every quarter of tho-rqpin.

Why'.> lie-cause it is l)cing well advertised What we want is more literature circulation about Alberta. We want men like W. TI. Fairfield, V. J. Whitney, A.; E. Keller and others to relate their experiences in this coun-tr.v.; The Board of Trade of this town would do well if they would take this rfiatter in hand. Get up; pamphlet telling about the success of our farmora. Let men like Me.ssrs Whitney. Kcflcr ond Fairfield, write soinotlting about the land, and what the.v have got out of it, and won't bo long until the country filled up the way it should^be. To meet the advanced temperance V sentiment in Ontario, Premier Whitney is putting the license toe, to a ifigure that will be pi-ohilntivn to the .v'low Joints and similar curses of low ESllccnsos. This is tne right iioliry. A ^45;|ihigh license and still provisions for ''"''jViVho/: administration of the lif�f'jitelaw^ V will ilo more lor s^igjiteniporance end morality than even ||p':>'t'eni|)erancn people imagine. The old '&igO\'ernment in Ontario promised t;ho' piWrtniieranco people a more advanced |i*ineB�iiro than .WW but . never p'gayeilt to them. Whitney did not Iprpmise them anything, but i^s giving ftlwni A'good ileal. .'|,JA;vE. KcfTer bears all the api>oar-l^ijances of an intelligent and progres-^Hive-inan. To our mind, the Conser-'ff^'oH''' tould not have made a bct-j^K^chpice, and unless ue are badly 'littal(i>n,- their candidate will be Wdlt-to his.:party, as well as him-Sjle Um always taken an active in,.,puhl|f; 'affairs, both here Did it ever st rike, you' that v Lethbridge haa about aa .many, if not good many more advantages . than places mnn.v .vears older in the cast. A man from Toronto or Montreal can settle down hero and get the same conveniences he would have in the larger cities, waterworks service, telephone, electric light .and sewerage system. The only thing we have'nt got is a street railway, and we will have that when w0 need it. It inokes one tired to hear eastern (m>ople talk about the drawbackir of life in the wc>st.' They simply don't know what they arc talking about. Macleod is evidently getting 'very jealous of licthbridge. We don't see wh.v, for wo have never expressed any feeling that could be diagnosed at Jealously, towaids Macleod. A few weckK ago a .:Mocleod paper told the Hudson's Boy Co. was building a' 920,000 huilding hero, and a more ux|)cnsiv(i one at Macleod, evidently intending to point out that tho HudHon's Bay i>eoplo thought more of the'prospcvtsof Macleod than this town. Maybe they ut rei'useil rt. and supporteil the Hon. n. Clark Wallacoas an Independent Conservative. Twice he has been olfeifld the Conservative nomination for 'the ,1'rovincial Parliamcirt but refused. Jlr.
