Hurry up gentlemen! The Hon.- A- G.. McKay, former leader of the Opposition in the Ontario Legislature, will practice law in Edmonton. Mac is true blue and will be a credit to the capital. .Did Good Work for Cardston JOHN W. WOOLF is not an issue in the Cardston bye-election , H3U_ch as .the.Conservative party might' wish toT make ; him one* but if tie were -there, isn't a .doubt but Mr. Woolf would win out. The constant harping of the Opposition press may have made some electors think the riding; had L'ijeen. negrected owing to the absence of the 'member during the past- year. V. An analysis of the expenditure shows that Cardston riding received' as'much, if not more, than any other constituency in the province. Mr. Woolf was a wonderfully successful member in getting tangible results and the electors didn't lose a dollars worth of improvement through his absence. -Mr. Woolf has resigned. He will never again- be connected with Alberta politics, but instead of blame the electors of Cardston have reason to remember his faithful service with gratitude. And the Herald believes they do, despite the. despicable campaign of the Opposition press. Showing maps with routes of "paper" railways which have not been* guaranteed by the government isn't necessarily, an evidence of statesman? ship.' Taber and Lethbrldge will debate at the Y. M. C. A. tonight on "He* solved that > bachelors be" taxed."/ (Much uproar and cries of "What's'' that?") ' .;''-' The SIfton Government has passed more progressive legislation in the past year than any other government in Canada. It is a government of the people. . , Fnrruerst^ Cardston and; Clares [holm should effectively defeat the Conservative candidates. They � are the enemies of wider markets and rail way competition. " 1 Feeding the hungry will be > a big l"job for Lethbrldge during th� Dry jFarming Congress week., Don't yorry, let everybody work in arranging thoij grub question without delay and there will be no regrets and no hash.

Chicago Finds It Out (Chicago Tribune) Meat is like gas; it does not ito-prove in quality as the price goes up. Ea�y For J. R. (Calgary Albertan) George Hoadleyand T. M. Tweedie will stump against J, B. Bpyle in thej Sturgeon riding, which should rather1 brighten the chances, of the LiberaP| candidate In that riding." Cheaper Litigation I WHILE THE, AVERAGE MAN likes-to steer clear of thg law courts, every man is likely to have business in them sooner or later �'in one way or the other. They are as much a part of, the social fabric as,the Municipal Council, and^should/ be/so constituted', as -to be of Teal ser-> vice to the'people. ' Complaint.rhas frequently -bex%~:m&ex4hat th&cdVt oft litigation ' too expansive and the poor"man nas 'frequently' bad to suffer"! loss through inability to meet the ex pense. The' Sifton Government, real izing that the courts should be brought as near the people as possible, at the last session amended the judicial act so as to extend the powers of the District Court.' This means that cases which previously had to go io the Supreme Court, can now be tried at the .lower court and 'with.- considerably less ^expense. .This means ninch to the ordinary roan and Was-legislation of real'benefit- to Sine- people/;  It means a saying of thousands of dollars an nuajly^cT:tite people of Alberta. The acyon of the government is worthy of popular support, biji�#i(itere�ts of, the east, is Its^masler 'in trying to choke THE CONSERVATIVE "PRESS seems disposed to resent the .very mention of the word "reciprocity" by a Liberal campaigner in thg'j^bye-'elections. The western Conservative press, bound as it is to the serving off sentiment in "favor of a wider market. Th6 "^Conservatives realize that the western -farmer wants the wider marked *and' the game is to stifle the cry by any means possible. But reciprocity won't down. / More than that, if Cardston and Claresliolm were to elect Conservatives, the victories would be interpreted at Otta.wa.as meaning that the west is turning away from the Liberal policy" and that the demand The Tariff Issue |for"-wider markets Is datd. It is the duty of'-the farmers, if they really want wider markets, to vote Liberal and let-the powers at Ottawa see that there is no hope for a Conservative 1 candidate until the leaders of that party give western farmers at least a measure of fair play. That's the justification for Injecting-the tariff into Provincial politics,, and its a substantial reason. 'Messrs. Michener, Stewart, Tweedie, et al worked against the farmers in - September last. If they were to win these bye-elections, Premier. Borden v'ould ,i>ccept the verdict as -favorable to the high protectionist party. Its up to the farmers to show that they'are-as--much in earnest as ever by electing the Liberal candidates. An, Immigration Scheme That Counts NO BETTER NEWS for the Lethbrldge district could have been found than the- announcement jnade" yesterday" that - the1 "C'lP.-'R'.' would immediately establish on their '" irrigated1 lands east of the city seven-teen ready-made farins which; are to> ' be colonjzed.; next,, spripg. Coming on. . top of the announcement by J. S. Den-nis, assistant to the ' president in charge of the natural resources department, that two C. P. R. demonstration farms would aiso'lfl estab- lished in the south, where new settlers could be shown methods adapted to the country, there is only one con-� elusion, and that is that the C. P. R. lias undertaken a project which will > do more for the development of Lethbrldge �and district than any other : agency at work at the present time. The spirit of the company in under-; taking such an enormous campaign -calls for nothing _ but commendation : from the public. As a corporation the C. P. R. comes in for some hard ; knocks at the hand-s of the public. Whether or not the company is re->� sponsible for calling down popular 4; condemnation in some of the bran-v "What is .your husband's occupation?" ^ "He jes' setS roun' de house all day and p'tends to-'mind de baby."
