The establishment of a halfpenny newspai)er in England has liad a great deal to do with shaking the position the Times occupied. The scheme when first started was looked on generally as one which would prove a failure. Bui time has proved otherwise. The popularity of the cheap papers has spread, for the founders not only sensed the needs of the people, but spared no money in bringing to the new venture the best journalistic brains llicy could obtain. The circulation of these papers went up in leaps and bounds, and they were in a position to obtain for their adverlisemcnls as much as the Times could command. The dcmoci'atic spirit in Britain is spreading and ideas have likewise been changing. No longer is the reading of the Times regarded as a fetish of aristocratic circles, or of those who aspire to that distinction. The history of Ihc paper in its latter days looked very much like a struggle for existence. It endeavored to lack on to its popularity tlie Times Library, the subscription lo which went jilong with the taking of the paper. It is somewhat of a satire Unit the pioneer of the cheap newspaper. Lord Northcliffe, should now have taken in hand the resuscitation of the Times from its lallen fortunes. A STRONG MAN AT THE HELM PRESroENT WILSON has shown a resolution, befitting the high and responsible position he occupies, in carrjnng out the Democratic pohcy with regard to tlie tarilT. In his attitude towards the trusts lie has evidenced the qualities of the strong and determined reformer who is not to be turned aside from liis plans by threats or cajolment. The presages of financial ruin to the country have not daunted him, knowing full well the sources from which these prophecies originate and the reasons wljich have caused them lo be uttered. To every imaginary bahe he supplies the antidote born of an honest conviction in the wisdom of the pohcy he is pursuing. i Baffled at one point the "interests" turn lo another mode of attack. Now they tlirealen a reduction in the wages of the workers to follow the Democratic efforts of adjusting the burden of tariff. Bui the resourceful President has a parry for every thrust, lie makes it firmly known that if any such threat is put into execuDon the investigating powers of the Department of Commerce will be called in lo estabUsh whether any such act has tiie excuse of a bona-fidc. Not only in the minds of liis own citizens, but in that of the orlside world the new President gains in e.stimalion day by tiay. lie looks to Ik liic sirulii; niiiii mui "o.i ..c . ' i' � """^ Augean stables of monopoly and ciUTuplion. Tiie people who ,have elected jiim to oltice have so far no reason to regi-et their choice. President Wilson has shown himself to be not only a man of academic attainments, but one with a knowledge of men and huillers which will go far to place his name on the roll which c'oi^tains those of his predecessors who have made themselves illustrious in office. The man and the opportunity appear to have arrived together, and in deahng with the latter in a fearless, honest and straightforward fashion there is given the assurance which cannot but earn for him the requisite confidence. . POLICE DOING GOOD WORK T'HE.RE HAS perhaps been no more pleasing development in '4 Lethbridge from a civic standpoint than the efBciency shown by tiie pohce force vmder Chief Davis. When that gentleman came lo Lethbridge there was nol much that resembled organization in connection with the force, and while there have been many ti'oubles to o\erconie, the Chief is gradually evolving a pysteAi which is a credit lo the city. Chief Davis holds no sinecure. He has many bitter enemies in this city, but the enemicii ni'e a credit to tlie Chief. When a chief of police brings down on Jjis head the bitter antagonism of the element which stands for a wide open citj% and wliich prefers a chief .who winks at violations of laws designed for the moral improvement of the city, all right thinking men and women can come to no other conclusion than that the Chief is ti-ying to enforce law and do his duty. It is a matter of regret that men with financial slake in on easy going enforcement'of law should place obstacles in the way of a police officer, but Chief Davis and his men may rest assured that by continuing to do their duty they %vill have strong pubhc sentiment at their backs. None of the n'en opposed to the enforcement of law dare come out in the open. Their game is the kind that is played with the concealed weapon. Chief Davis came to Lethbridge pledged to clean up this city and lo enforce law. He is doing it so far as the powers that be permit. Tjiere has been marked improvement, and the Herald thinks it Is speaking for the big majority of the people of this city when It stales that the Chief is deserving of the strongest moral and Bxecutive support from the mayor and city council. There is always a-day of reckoning for public servants who wink at wrong end the Herald is pleased to believe that the present city council will stand for Ihe right and give Ihe Chief and his men their heartiest co-operation. WHAT THE MOTHER OF PARLIAMENTS At HIEVES 'T'MK RIOTOUS MEETING at Trafalgar Square lakes us back *� to other days. British newspapers in referring lo the death of one of London's oldest police magistrates rehilc the incident of a man in gray riding by the side of the IciuliM- oi Uie troops called out to quell a mceling at Trafalgar SqiuuT. The magistrate, Mr. Chapuuui. was prest-nl for Iho purpose of leading the Riot Act should need arise. The central figure in the riolous meeting was Mr. John Burns, then a labor leader ol' the reactionary type. Much water has flowed beneath London Bridge since that time, and today John Burns is a cabinet minister and what is regarded as a respectable member of society. This speaks much for the subduing influence of the Mother of Parliaments. It was an act of diplomacy of the government of the day to stretch out a concihatory hand to the present member of the Local Government Board, and much peace was wi-oughf tliereby. The Mother of Parliaments has proved a good school for turbulent spirits. Some have refused to be tamed and. like Victor Grayson, have soon wearied of the decorum within its walls. Even Keir Hardie has felt the influence of Weslniinsler and he is not quite the same personahty as he was some years ago. In its leavening process the British House of Commons has proved its value and the calm and dispassionate altitude which its sense of decorum and dignity produces amongst its members goes a long way lo bring about legislation which has in it all the elements which appeal to the impartial mind.- The Standard Securities Co.

OUR POINT OF VIEW Alton B. Parker says that pubUc sentiment %vill ere long make war an impossibihly. May he prove a Irue prophet. The more that is heard of him the more does it seem that the city council made no mistake in the selection of a publicity man. Let every citizen co-operate in making it possible for Mr. Tracy to do his very best. Only in the taking of human hfe arc the RXissian Nihilists different from the militant suffragettes of England. Sufiicient evidences of diabohcai plots are. coming to light to cause lo wonder what kind of laws such women would stand sponsor for. In the transferal to Calgary Supt. Wilson*is being given substantial promotion and those familiar with his work here will agree that he is entitled to Ihe honors. Inspector West's promo-lion lo a superintendency at Maple Creek is also a deserved recognition of faithful and efficient work. E. L. Taylor is a candiCale in the Gimli, Manitoba, bye-election with the promise of a portfolio if he wins. The Liberals have nominated an Icelander to run against hinrand the outcome of the fight will be watched wi^h interest, although it hardly seems possible that Roblin would take much chances aL this stage of the game, and must have had fairly good assurance of support before appointing the retiring member to office. Mr. Clem Stubbs has shown by his resignation that he is quite wiUing to try conclusions with the bunch at Fernie who are trying to disrupt the union and control the miners for political purposes. The miners would be satUy misguided were they to yield one inch in their support of the United Mine Workers of America. All they have today ;liey owe to thai body, and in the present struggle they siiould not forget that Mr. Stubbs stands for the United Mine Workers, and against the disrupting forces. What Others Think THE THUI.DERER'S COME DOWN A DESPATCH announces that the Times has reduced its price **� to twopence. There is nothing very astonisliing in this. The great British daily is only moving in the groove of all new.s-'paper flesh, and is feeling the competition of liie present day.
