The purpose of the amend-mont Is to Insure that the time shall not'be advanced more than one hour beyond standard time In each province. Mewburn Denies This Major Qenornl .Mewliurn rose to a question of prlvllcKo in regard to a statement which, he said, had nppoar-ed In the Ottawa t'lflzen and was copied In other papers In which hU name was referred to In ronnci'llon with the appointment of Colonel 11. H. liRbntt on the board of pension commissioners. Colonel L'abatt. Geiiornl Mow-burn said, was not his brother-in-law and his appointment was made in 1918 before Major General Mewburn became a member of the present gov-ornraont. "I wish to state," Major General Mewburn added, "that I had nothing to do, directly or IndlrecJIy. with Colonel Lnbatt's appointment, al though I remember when he was offered the appointment he informed mo of the fact and 1 advised him not to take It because ho Had a large private business and I thouKht the strain would be too much f(u- him." Major General Mewburn added that Colonel Labatt served through the Northwest rebellion us a private and was one of the most experienced Canadians officer*. I Reld Not In It Sir Robert Borden remarked that the Hon. J. D. Reld. minister of ratl-wayK.liad nothing to do with the appointment of Colonel Labatt to the board of pension coinmissioucrs. Sir Wilfrid Laurier asked if an po-portunity would be given the house to discuss the question.. Sir Robert replied that; the question of Colonel Labatt's pension was before the pensions committee. Opportunity would bo given to discuss the matter in the house Inter. Colonel Currlo corrected a state-' ment which appeared in press reports of his speech on tl\c budget. He was reported as saying ''there had been a careful avoidance of placing a tax on Canadian made goods." This. Colonel Currle added, was the reverse of what he had said. \ Ofits Judgtnent tn Stilt Against Tlie OgilViej Milling , " Company : Judginonl has teen bnntjcd, down by Hid lldnor, Judge Jaoksou, in a case .of r'.

Lethbrldge, May" nth. 191S. The Editor. LethbVIdgo Herald: Dear Sir^-In 'yoiriiteditorial in last night's Herald you mention the high cost of lumber and labor which militates against house building, etc. you al3o mention the fact that Lethbridge is in need of an Interior Storage Elevator to meet Uie requirements of the premier grain-producing district of Sunny Southern Alberta.. I quite agree,with you, ^iijl yet >V8 have the strange anoinaly of the Columbia elevator ot I.,eth9rtflge being dismantled by the Alberta Pacific Elevator Co., and going tojbe erected elsewhere. If ever there was a case of waste of labor, surely we have it here. It a little town like Boisevain in Manitoba can boast ot fifteen elevators and use, them, too, surely Lethbridge, in the centre of this great wheat growing district, can use three. What is the Lethbridge local of tho U. F. A. thinking about? Why haven't they bought It? Here right In our city Is S. S. Dunham, one of the ablest and most active members the T'.P.A. organization has ever had. Can ho tell us anything about It? How about it .Mr. Dunham? n. J. SMEJTHURST. i THE E. ]. TICKNER GO. " iSth Street, Opposite Ellison Mills ' DOES NOT EXPLAIN IT Editor of Tho Herald. Dear Sir,-The man first entrusted with tho grading of tho Lethbridge Y'� financial road was ignorant of level dealing and so headed them for a deep declivity the only, remedy for which was a subsequent bridging of tho gap; the completion of this bridge you now term "war exigencies" in your explanation of the approiu'lation of the money now being raised for tho Y. M. C. A. war huts at the front. To strengthen your explanation you use the method ot Adam In Eden', "Calgary and others are doing It." For the same kind of stuff Ananias and Sapphira were carried -out feet first. In these days you may by Incantation and wand waving make straight that which Is crooked-In your mind-but don't blame Lethbridge if it does not mentally follow you-in this matter or in that of the $3000.00 over estimate on the tax Siile ads. ' There are limits to our docility but in cases of strategical retreat from Illogical positions wo are ever ready to forget. Try un, samij tis Slfton et al In now retiring from, their decision In re tho H..V.W..-\[.P. placates of. Western polnion. Jlut bear thi.K In mind, the "Y" has for a good long time been casting about for a ready made side wind; they think they're got It. What! nOBERT SAGE.. -"Wliosoever bathes his soulin the waters ! ' of great music is made strong again." These are stirring-strenuous times when every Innocent diversion that can give us a mental holiday should be taken advantage of. It is true efficiency to do so. Don't think you are doing your duty by looking glum and serious. It is patriotic to laugh--to cheer your soul:-to fee! at your best-to enjoy the uplifting sweep of the great music of the ages as placed in youi home by the Grafonola Send iiomc records to your mldicr.
