We notice a despatch from Torou-lo states thwt Si.bUng the investment in half an hour. Mr. Hill has as much right to build a road through Westera Canada as the C. P. B. has to enter the Ut>it! Alberto and the oorporatioo of Eni-monton wi4l act wisely if tlyey 'work ont a plan totore any factitious otwtuclcs arise to crewte insuperable difficulties. If it !.s still possible to moke improvements in the lay-out of the c.\-iwfinf; ci'ty, it will bo bettor to do thai now than to loave it, as in Toronto, to lie Ast that should be attempted is to see that the avcn as their home wlvm death comes. ! Qui-t speaking of Lothbrrdge as a town'; �e are a Cull-fted(?Pd city. EDITORIAL NOThS. fjethUidgc is now a city. Do your best grow. to make Ijothbridgo Cnrnogie cla-s-scd Lauricr and Booker Washington amongst Ute greatest men of the world. We don't know who he thinks are the ot'lier : three, but since lie made two such I good guesses, wo are ijatisfiod his lather throe iselections will '^je pretty 'clos"? to the mark. Wilfrid I.4iurier is a great m�n, but like all political leaders, his opponents will not recognize bis gi�atneGS until he ia dead and �one. However, peo(>I� who view Canmtian affairs apart from parly turmoil, are better able to judge Sir W-ilfrirl's ability and .statesmanship. Duncan Fm.ser, Lieutenam-Oowr-Would nt ready at it be a good idea to set onoe atvd Ivave a rowsing nor i>f Nova Scotia, wore a Crock coat when he prorogued the LogJa-'cclol>ration to mork the cre.-�tion L-vlure down there. It is cuatotnar>'; a ^.jtv. �to lie garljixl ih a Wim'ls>or uniform loo'ded with g-old lace, but Hon. Mr. Fpo-ser evidonMy beliefs, like a lot of other mortals, that a Logislwtuixj can be prorouged 'by a man if he was even to wear a suit of overalls. "Is lite vortli living?" oooe I asked a maidi With droopiiw eyes thus coyly answered she- "Devote your life to inc and you will fitMl Of what great worth true love can nMke It be." "Is life worth Uvjingfl" once 1 asked a man, Who6c form was bowwl and worn by warring }-ears: He shuddcrad, pointed to a grave, then Cursed And looked a^bout him witii regretful tears. Quite a few compliments are being iwssed arouBdjIor the Nelson Baity News. We want to add ours to the string. The News is five years oM, and is � hotter daily by far than pai>ers puhUshed in cities five times the size. It covers all Uic world in its despatches, and is tiie only da'i,y newspaper between Vancouver and Calgary. Tt merits the support of the reading p��bMc in th�dn. O-ct out and country. boiKsl lor the town J. Hill as much right to enter West-em Canada and serve the iatorcsts of the people here, as the American roads in Ontario. The bugaboo .about trade being diverted is silly. As people *n the east should know, J. J. Hill coin bring Coinadian goods in here just as well as other roads. He does it -today. Freight comes to Ijethbridge from Winnipeg over the Great Northern. Some say *he new road will build up American ports. To our mind, the naw traascootinontal will build up a new Canadian port. It will bring from the prairies the western grain attd' its products to Vancouver to be shipped from there to the new mar-ketif -in Japan and China. J. J. Hill now has entrance to Vancouver, aad he is more liable to build up thart port than any othcr^ Souiclx)dy told us Caigary was growi'ng. l'rol>�Wy it 'is oKMing more people to its populatian, but it is certainly not getting away from the village sty^j oi argument U tJie ap-petKlod jjaragraph from tho HeraKl edtorial coluiuns in a sample: "It (the iK-raiki) has defendod every olhcjr ciookyd deal in looali history." Tivis stoilenKtnt, made in the editorial coiunms cf a morning paper yosiei'day, is a lie, and the m.'ra iWio wrote it is a liar. Pretty strcng lani^'ge for a place that pretends to be the ci^ntreof culture in Alberta. ALBERTA'S CAPITAL The Conserviative jxirty seems to be making a dead set on J. J. Utll's transcontinental. It will find the people of the west making a dead set on it if it keeps up such a oaiiu-f|>aign. The Board of Trade nHwde a good move wticn it decided to ask the postofflce departmcwt to place letter boxen at the C. P. H. station so that citizens could drop their letters there and have t>hein taken up by the mail clerks as hc Pie-�gan reserve were not worth one-half the unioiHit given for them, and that iho cattle were neglected, no person being nt the Maclcod �taition 'to receive them at the time they arrived. The Frank Paper says- With regard to Mr. Herron's charge tho't tl�e cattle delivered to the Peigan Indians were not worth haA what the got'crnment paid for tlvem., and that there was no one at the station at Macleod to receive, inspect and deliver the cattle to the In-diiins, as required by the De-I>artroent, the Frank Paper has been infornnd by a gentleman of �inimpeac-h�'blc Integrity, in fact one of the best kimwn and most higlrly respected mon in Southern Alboi'ta, t'hat he was at the station at Maclcod when .the stock in question arrived there, and his stalemen't 'is that the cattle not only were not the poor quality of critters Mr. Uorron da-.scri'bes them, but on the contrary were a very good class of animal. He also states that he saw .J. II. Ooodcrham, agent at tiwj I\?ig�n reserve, at the station, and that he (Mr. Oooder-hnm) personally su|>erintended the delivery of the stock to the Indians.' Instead of pos.9ing a law to rogu-livte the speed of automobiles, the LcgiiRlaturc shoiild attempt to regulate the noise and the smell. The Toronto Globe oflcrs somo ^�ery sound advie to Alberta on th-importance of making the new capital of this province as much a credit to AW>crta as possible. The Herald reproduces the article, with the hope that the Alberta Oovernmont will adopt the swagcstions made: Piy a decisive maiority the Jjag-islwtive Assembly of Allxrta has (kioided to continue the seat of , I'rovincial Oovcrnment at EJd-monton. The statute creating the Province placed it there provisionally, and left the final selection to the Legislature. Now that the choice has been decisively made, all the other' competitors for the honor and advantage oi Iteifig the capital appear to Ivavc accepted tihe result with good grace and without faultfinding. While outMtders have no feeling or opinion in the matter, Canadians everywhere will be pleased to learn that there is to be no permanent cleavage over thti question. Thcie arc so niany problems of immensely greater importance then it is, that it. woukl be cause for regi-ot to see more made of it thtin it deserved. Kdmonton has two local ad-vantagieturt'8itttl cities in both Canada and the \}ni1cd States haversufTorcd from want of co-op-oratloi betwi'en the Oovermnant and^Jhe munictpalvcorporation.. In waiitincton this o you want to know? Then read tha following from a contemporary, which tells with accuracy and point: The live merchants, the merchants who do not complain of bard times, are the advertising merchants. They have realiJK'd the Vaet that in this advanced day for a man to hold Ms own in business without advertising is a poor policy by which to be governed. They have learned that ev-erj' year they must spend a lot of the profits in advertising; The toine has come when the people look to the advertisements as their buyiitg guide aiKl trade with the men who advertise. Tomorrow 'is Arbor Day. Don't fail to plant some trees and flowers and clean up .your yards. Make Lethbridge "The Garden City of Alberta. " Most of the opposition io the' increased indemnity to members of Parliament at Ottawa come from the labor unions, and it is surprising to find the oivly labor member in ^he House of Commons, AlfAonse VerviUe, standing up in Parliament and s(rong>ly favoring the larger salary. We think Mr. Vervillc is right, howevw. for there is no use to expect members to resist the temptations offered hy corporations unless they are paid a decent figure for their servioes.

''At the end of a particularly toil story of tlTis^kind, the American saM: "Yes, we haVc a lot of mud in America, I admit it. It is nothing to the mud o%'er_bere, Uw.' "'Nonsense.' said the Englishman. " 'Faet,' the. American replied.. 'W1>y. this afternoon, oh a walk out Chester way. 1 had a remarkable adventure-came near getting into trouble with an old gcnAleman-all through your accursed mud.' 'Some of the streets are a little greasy at this season, I admit," said the Engliaitman. 'What was your adventure, tho?' " 'Well,' said the American, *as 1 wa� waUcing along Bold street, I noticed that the mud was very thick, and presently I saw a high hat afloat on a large' puddle of very rich oo�. " "Hiinking to do some one a kindness, T gave the hat a poke with my stick, when aa M gentleman looked up from beneath, surprised and frowning.� " 'Hello,' I said, 'yx>u're in preUy de.*.'

The Herald, to our min>d, is improving lately, except for the language used to-war.'ls a coutemporary. It is a better ncwspaiwr than it used to be. The Herald is now run on a Cox Duplex press-on* of the most modem and rapid madkines-and it will en-aible the paper to be enlarged and produced in much .|�tter shape than of old. 19 LIFE WOUTH LIVING.'
