R- -THE WEEKLY HERALD PubHBhed even- Wednesday in aleht or more summary at the news ot local and tlls ,nd contains a 1 year B months iu advanoa The East and the Panama Canal -T ETHBRIDGE PEOPLE me eat I j ing onionj grown in and Australia, There is more in tHIs than may tippear.on llie surface. Discourse it proves that the farmers Alberta could make mon- e> bj growing onions as apparentlj their onlj competition would be from far off chines But it ulso prcnes, and this IB more important in. the cn-J, that water transportation'is ao-'cheap that farmers thousands of miles awiiy can .invade bur markets. Wait, then, until the Panama Canal is com- and the products of the prairies .-wHb.Jiot be compelled to travel thousands of miles overland to nnci a, water route They will go b> the west instead of by the east. The shipping the prairie products 'through, the east means dollars foi the east. When these dollars are tak en be that.the people o: the east uill see in of attractive surroundings. Now is Ihb 'time to consider the proposition, and if some action along the lines set.forth were taken by the Ctty Council, The Herald feels sure that the-.citizens would heartily en- dorse the, movement. The Railway Policy mHE POLICY of the Government has__been criticised by Reverend Mr, Ali- chener, and bis followers, on the grounds that fails are not being laid last enough and that it caters to one end of the province as against tne other. Speaking in the Mr.1 .'Michener tells the people that 'the roads are all for Northern Alberta, Edmonton being favored, and iiorth the tune is reversed and the (people there are told that the policy 1 Is altogether in favor of. the south. The electors'are becoming wise to this sort of political it is doubtful if any intelligent elector is i fooled by it.: But'perhaps for Bright unfairness the gentle man who leads the party, is outdone by the gentleman who represents linthbridge City. He ia going up. and down the south country .telling, the, electors that hot a dollar's worth of guarantee has been given for roads south ot Calgary, Holding up n map alleged to show the lines guaranteed at the last session of the nouse, the hoii. gentleman becomes, highly'indig, nant and calls on the electors to con- demn such heartless neglect of the south. Isi the north other members are dis- playing maps showing all. the roads are for the southland there'you have the railway policy of the tho Reverend Mr. Michener. The member for !Letbbridge likes to be considered u fair fighter. In -fact he is held up by bis Friends as a para- gon of. fairness, but The Herald is sorry to say that when H comes to party exigency he is too prone to fall from his high estate. Jt is true Uiat most of the railway legislation of the recent session had to do with open- ing' up the hinterland, whore.there la not a inlle of 'railway, and is said to possess Immense riches, the .development of which .would help all Alberta; all the elect- ors expect a public man to he above fciibterfnge and petti- tide stepping Kvery mile of road which the Can- Northern Hallway, jiud tho Gniml Trunk .Pacific Railway will Huild in the auuih hits utjen guaranteed by tne tag Widest provision has been made for serving all parts of the country. Complaint Is made that the roads are not being built fast enough.- There is no us-e denying that it is tiresome, waiting year after year for steel, hut it must not he forgotten that Western Canada Is growing at a" tremendous rate, aad the taak Ahich confronts the trans- portation Interests is something ap- palling The territory to be covered is vast and to get the men and the steel to build the track is the big problem An> irap who calmly looks over the situation must come'to the conclusion .that the companies are do- ing fairlj and hme, the plans so well In hand that the next three years Is. see all the present settled portions supplied -with roads. In Southern Alberta the C. N. R. is building from Calgary south to Goutls arid from. Saskatchewan west through the territory -south of Xethhridge to this city; The company is building as faat as'possible, and the roads will be complete'within two years. The G. T. P. are also coming from the east (hrouglr the territory south of Leth- bridge, and expect to complete -125 mi led of the line thia year. The C. N. R. is rushing the Macleod-Piiicher Creek section before' the northern link is completed, and everything pos- sible is being done to facilitate the the roads. In addition to these Hues the C.P. H. is; building its Weyburn-Lethbrldge line from both ends, and there isn't a shadow of doubt but that all griev- ances as to a lack of roada will be re- moved in the comparatively near fu- ture. In view of these facts it is passing sfrango that men; who like to be re- garded as honest should deliberately deceive the people. All that is necessary to refute the misrepresenta- tion 1a for any elector of Cflrttston to consult iue local Board of Trade as to expectations and he will fliui that there Is not a district .which Is not bcingrbqomed pn tho'strength of the fact that the.TaUwnyn are coining .and are expected to arrive wlthiu .two jean at POINT OF hVlEW Friday is At bar about "Swni iho ily" may sound like joke, hut it Is rather rough'on flics, Five lumcli'Gtl cheques u'cro jssuod for the city engineer's department atone lust that .being pay day. Wonder what tho population of the city is now. Tho city In-one breath blames tho C. p. for the delay In delivering tho street railway ties, and lu ;tho next gives an order to the company for two carloads of that very necessary ur- tide. Perhaps there.Is method in the mildness of the great corporation. In extending the irrigation 'system to cover .tho A. 11. and 1. tract or 000 acres, the company ndtls tit least fifteen millions to the right'stde of thy ledger Mr Southern Alberta. And In passing, niight be mention that Lethbridge is the distributing centre for this district. This Is al- most as good as spending, fifteen mil- lion dollars right here In Lethbridge. The Provincial Government is spend ng a lot of money in improving the roads In Southern Alberta this spring. No better expenditure of the public fund, for good roads are an asset to any country which cannot help but result 4n increased ity. -And now it remains for the Motor Club to get busy and help the good rk along.

Other cities in Alberta are waking up to the. fact that n city beautiful I an asset which cannot be overlooked Lethbrldge la well to the fore, and give them all some pointers, One look at Gait Park shows what is being done ajong these lines, But, at the same time, it might be just as well i someone would start a. little agitation ;o remove some of the dustbeds along the east side of, the river.
