THE BASEBALL GAME. How these celebrations make ond feel good! They are worth tl*e price. Ixithbridgo with such a send-od as .It got yestei'dny should make greater progress than ever this j-ear. Now all together to keep the ball rolling. JSveryono for Lethbridge. The Board of Trade paid a well deserved tribute to its Pi-esiflont, C. F. :.P. Conybeare, K.C., when it reelected hmi unanimously to the chair . The urosident is energetic in his efforts to further the interests of I-etlibridge, but before the Board of Trade wil! do "what it ought to advance the interests of this city, the memljers must buckle to the work of assistmg the president and other of^ /Iciflls. There is not enough interest taken in the Board of Trade. Opportunities are coming our way every week and they are allowed to pass because the great majority of the 1 business men of the city seeimngly take no interest in the efforts that may be put forth to seize thenu Every man who has business intei-ests in ^-.the city should be a member of the Board of Trade, whose worlv it is to �p- improve business conditions.

The visitors playt^d with considerable snap bnt failed t) take advantage of opportunities that skilled ball-players would snap at. On the other hand the locals let nothing go by and practiciilly won because of their knowledge of the game As the score was close until the lost inning the crowd was kept interested. Umpire Manzie of Calgary. | was an impartial umpire. Magrath"s incorporation as a town is to go into effect on July 1st. The number of towns in the Lethbridgc district is increasing rapidly. We now have Kayinond, and if Dave Elton wil,l permit u. street decorations were first rate.. The most of the Inisine.ss houses had bunting and painted signs on their blocks. Stretched " across fronu ISoiind Street wore streamers put up by the Two;Macs, the Motor Car Co. and the Herald. The �ity"s biff .streamer at the comer of fied-Ipath ijiid nound was torn by the wind. , to otir cliy. Aftoi* cspwHsIng Mi pleaHure at heihg present, tho speak* �r MM: j"Vl'hon Lethbridge first sfnrtmlthel'o were pretty hard tiinos in Medicine Hat. Lethbridgo is just an olT shoot from Medicine Hat; Tinws got so hard in the Hut that those thot had enough money left and wont awny nnd came to l.,ethbridge. They us?d Ifi couio down to the Hat about every week to see us and tell how well the.v were gettistg along in Loth -'bridge, nnd then t-hey'd turn around and borriMv ntfwioy from us to pa.v their eniploy.VTOS their week's wages. Medicine Hut aiul Ixahlu'idge arc very similar. You have coal at Licthbridgc ami we have coal at Medicine Hat. Wc have nnturni ga.s at the Hat and you have wind here. It is prairie country in both places and they both are in Southern part of Alberta. Thus, all those points are very similar in results. You have a lai-ge ninnbor of school chiUlren, so have we. For these reasons and many others a friendly feeling exists between Lethbridge and Medicine Ifut. You will no doubt be looking for tho.so wo are looking for, but the two places arc far enough apart for both of them to become largthat it's going ahead. W. C. SiimiMins, li.P.r. responding to the toast said: "i am sure that the composer, of^hc toast list could not have done Iwtter than to have ,)ohn P. Marcel lus propos? the toast to Sunny Southern Alberta. Ho looks the jxtrt, the type of our ug -ricultur,ist who has hel|>ed to build up Alberta. 1 will not speak on subject tonight, as 1 was only apprised of the fact ijbout fo�ir o'clock this evening and between then and now I have iiad ' other uttrar.tions.

G�i�ral Agtntt, Aii4Uort A papi.t Liui t has lx!en.^n onomi' of Hon. Frank Oliver from the day he look a .seat in the-UomVnion Cabinet is the Toronto Nevs, but it is now forced to admit that Mr. Oliver is not as weak an administrator as it had previously irictured.him. Here is what its Ottawa corrcspon.'.n Bay Islands which bel,one to cn-s Indians publicly and .jy aucti i\ -nn enormous imjirov^nmnt upon the old .s.ystcm. Like a sportsman, Mr. Bennett's congratuliO-tions were as public as the sale, and it was plctisant to hear him saying kind things to Mr. Oliver -who, by the way, is winning re-.spect for his evident desire to ad-miini�ter ju.stly and honestly. :Mr. I>alor, who has a Jarge Indian reserve in his constituency of Ilaldimand, praised Mr. 01i\W tor three great improvements recently effected in the Indian schools; the.v _now have tha same textbooks as the other schools of the province, they are inspected by the ordinary school insiiectors, and the teachers must bo qualified. Formerly all these boons were denied. The Civic The Calgary Herald's mind is continually on Corncl{hi|^ Cornelius Hiebert wd presume-for the other . day it announced that Cornelius .farvis had been elected president of the Sovcroign Bank. It is worth noting that Mr. .Jarvis' front naino is Acmilius. U ^ The legislation that was brought y, %Slore tb� -Dominion Parliaiuent deal-'>;jing with Juvenlls proud of it; I have served with good men, I have served with men in whose opinion . you could trust. That systemi of graft has not reached us. Don't l''t it take hold of us. If we cannot direct our city affairs let us apply to the legislature for a difficrcnt kind of a. City Qovcrnment and put it in the bands of men who are paid to'look after the city's welfare." After disclaiming any attempt at making a speech, the chairman proposed "The .Health of the King," which was loyally honorerl. K. H, FcMsenden in proiMMing the toast of "CanadgV �loqti�ntly �i��k� of the greatness of Canada tO'^y, but proponed nr^t so much ut, drink to Canada as it is hut rath(;r, for the future that^inHpireM the hopMt unit aspirations of every Canadian. In replying to the Umni SenttUtr De VcbcT regretted hiN InaliFility to condense a five day aildmw into a five-minute after dinner Mpeech,' Th� Hon. .Senator cxprcMsed pl'aKUN at being in liethbridge again .where he, could wear what he liked, nay'what he liked, and do what he liked, after, enduring the penalties of frock cnat, silk hat, high coitarN and boiled Hhirttt during hia eight months absence, In R|)eaking to the toast, Senator DaVober cnmparod our area, and population wfth that of Oreat Britain, France,. ,Unit�d States and l^rope. toast a gentlfnnau, who is mage cap-allo of addivssing you thaa t am, more fluent saeakcr than I au: older parlimentariun than I am, Mr.'.C. A Magrath. I will merely call your attention to our resources. One was, that mag -nificcn't parade of school cbiViren. There is an asset of which we can be proud. Thereis evidence that there will soon tie a generation duly going on nnd d.3veloping the good work in Sunny Southern Alberta. The exhibit of these little boys and girls were tne resources that struck me so for-cib,y. This evening there are many of our .American cousins'with .us, our other great resource. They come to UK and fmd in Canada just aa democratic institutions in the sliadow or the sunslpne of .Britain's monarchy. Wc believe that they will find hero just OS great liberty in every por-ticiilar, as that found in tiie glorious repiiblii. We believe that they wilt help us to build up u united coun-ti'.v, to build up the work at the new world of Canada, forging to the front in the great British ESmpire. We should like to use moro citizens of that kind. We are not afraid of American invasion. In all, Mr. Chairman, l)efore leaying my subject that I tielieve we have a monopoly of sunshine in Sunnjf Southsrn Al-lierto. Some think too many things go to 'the north. Wu surely should not begrudge a few of the best tMngs.-We have some prc-ttygood friends in the north. One of the tfaincs that impressed this upon me was the incorporation of Lethbridge. Tim matter of cities was a new one (or the legislature. I'ossibly it was the timidity of the new legislature. It would city than Mayor Cousins of Medicine Hat. The association iHstwecn the two cities has alu-nys been very close. Both places wore raised to the rank of cities on the same day. Thus the cities are twins. If there is an.v rivalr.v lietween us let it be of mild form and not jealousy, but the rivalry of amicable working al- thc work wc can do, working for development of Alberta. It. has been saitl that you can destroy cities, but so- long as j'ou have the country the cities will spring up like Phoenix out of the n.shos uf the former ones. I merely want to nrga all citizens^ of Lethbridge to have tire faith that I have. Our charities am not to remain at homo. 1 Ijcliovc the time will conic when from all citios of Alberta, working together we shall hear the story of Allwrta's greatnoss ring throughout nil the world. be a bad precedent to establish Hl>i^ city like Lethbridge. The men from the east contended that a city should have 10,000 inhabitants. But m gentleman who cartio to the aid of the cit.v, vi/.., W. JU- Cross, of EJdaiontpn Attorney General, maintained that a city once incorporated would grow-much faster than if it wers left a town. I do not think there is a man in that Itigislature to-day who would give his opinion, that it was a mistake to incorporate .tbis young city. C. .'\. Magrath who also replied to the toa.st after his preltni.'inary remarks, spoke of the- resources and advancement of Sunny Southern Alberta, sais; "As early as a7y ears ago, within a short' distance of the Kaymond Sugar Factory, I saw buffalo peacefuTiy grazing.

The theme of my ditty shall be a now city That has lately come out rnlher strong-Its future is brilliant we know; Buchanan says "Watch Lethbridge Orow\" But times are so busy, it makes a , man diz7,.y If he tries to keep up with the show. It's a mighty fine city they say. And it's goingto grow bigger each day. Chorus: Fol do riddi.e de ol de .n.ye, &c.
