McLel- lan, D.L.S., who k-ft Edmonton in June, 1908, with a party of 15 men to run the fifth meridian to the 29th base Hoe, has completed bis work and returned to Edmonton alter an ab- sence in the north of nearly two years. Besides running the 5th meri- dian to the 29th base, Mr. McLellan's party ran the 28th base line many miles west toward Fort Vermilion. Speaking of conditions in the upper valley of the Peace in the vicinity of Fort Vermilion settlement, Mr. Mc- Lellan says that 'the country is so productive, and so much ground has been brought under cultivation by the settlers already there, that with a good crop this year, the country will be flooded with grain, which, from the limited demand of the settlers themselves and the absolute lack of transportation facilities, will be all he worthless, although of the No. 1 quality. Bushels in Granary Sheridan Lawrence, who has been farming on an extensive scale at Fort Vermilion, has still bushels in his' -ranary. His brother, .James Lawrence, has another Last year in outfitting his party Mr. Me-1 tends to dismiss the Rutiieriord gov- Lellan purchased bushels of wheat from Sheridan Lawrence at 50 cents a bushel. The best wheat is fed to hogs and at that the price of uork at Vermilion is not as high as TO DISMISS THE GOVERNMENT Report To That Effect Cir- culated At the Capital Edmonton, May Bulletin j this morning said: An improbable re- port gained circulation on the street last night to the effect that His Hon- or, -Lieutenant Governor Bulyea in- ernnient and call on Chief Justice Sifton to form a cabinet. The report GAMBLING DENS MUST GO The time has come, if indeed it has not been here long ago, when the gambling in this city mutt be stopped. Within the past few months there have been several young men who are known to have gone crooked and wrecked their lives because they have frequented the gambling dens of the city, and have staked there, not only their own money, but that of their employers and that which has come into their possession as a trust in some way or other. There are many young men holding responsible positions In the city who art night after night playing alike with their money and their positions and their reputations, as well going headlong towards the wrecking of their characters. This cannot go on. There can be but one end. Crime, disgrace and ruin are the only outcome of such a course of action. There are those in this city who make a living out of this business. They get the young men into their toils and never help them out of trouble except to get them more firmly into their clutches. They are leeches, parasites on human society and as such must not be tolerated. The present situation whereby these gambling dens carry on their nefarious and blasting work must not continue. Chief Gillespie and his force have done what they could and it is generally admitted that it is extremely difficult to prove gambling charges. The final resort is public opinion. .Public opinion in Lethbridge is not in favor a continuance the evil. The public have not been aware of the facts, and therefore do not know the magnitude of the evii as it exists. Men have got into trouble through gambling. Employers' and trust monies have been squan- dered on the gaming table, but the cases have been and hushed up by friends. The facts have not been known. The Herald confesses to having a part in this. It has heeded the request of those implicated to keep the facts from being published. It has had, and still has, no desire to cause a young man who has yielded to the temptation to gamble to lose his position with his employer or his standing in society. It has had no desire to wound the feelings of the parents and friends of the culprits. It hoped that the lesson would be learned and the practice stopped. But the Herald views with concern the results of the practice, and believes that the hands of the police will be immeasurably strengthined by a strong, intelligent public opinion. It believes that the only way to stamp it out is to let the people know. Hereafter, the Herald will shield no one, will spare none. Hereafter, it will publish the names of all those whose names are recorded in the police records in connection with raids on the gambling-dens. It matters not who the parties are, or who their friends are, whether of high or low degree, whether positions in business or society are lost, full publicity will be given. It is not a pleasant duty, but the Herald believes it is the only way the evil can be suppressed. It is the only way to save'those who can be saved from the habit, and to drive out of the city, or out of the business, those who are preying on the innocent and the unwary. The Herald has perfect confidence in the chief of police and Mayor Adams as chairman of the license and police committee, and hereby publicly assures them that H will use its utmost power to back them up in a determined effort to rid the city of the gambling dens and the evils that attend them. THE GAMBLING DENS MUST GO. DOUBLE THE CIRCULATION 4- A year ago the Herald, when it published a sporting extra, had 2000 subscribers. Today the number of copies Issued, and they are lor abso- lute guaranteed circulation, run over 4000. Thus the Her- ald keeps growing with Leth- bridge and the South.

Adding the truck farmers iu the surrounding country, there fire Japanese Jn and near Seattle. In the state of Wash ington the census Is expected to show Japanese, as against in California.
