Lethbridge heretofore has been singu-1 larly fortunate as it has had no bad! is the policy for the citizens of Leth- bridge ar.d for the council. The promises and plat- forms of the Conservative party and its leaders might-be taken into some ucouut by the people if cit were not for their practices. Their actions truly "do thunder out against their words." One question to be settled tomor- row is .whether gas or coal is the bet- ter for working up steam. The ques- tion will be settled at the baseball park. If Senator DeVeber and C. A. Ma- grath say that the Selkirk Centenial is a go, that settles it. They mean the Senate and the Commons. It is now for Earl Grey to sign up the doc- uments. SUN FIRE The oldest Insurance In the world FOUNDED A.D. 1710 EJ.CCNTENA1Y 1B1O HOME OFFICE t LONDON. ENGLAND CaudlaB Branch. SUB Toroato. D. M.

A nudge in a street car may be ac- cidental or it may be given to at- tract attention. After he had felt the old lady's elbow two or three times, the man awoke to the fact that he was being- touched in earnest, and so he turned to the old lady. "Don't you see who is she said. "Why don't you get up i aiid offer your seat? That is the! Lord Bishop of Toronto and his' wife." The man looked at the old lady for a moment. "Don't you know who I he replied. "I'm the Duke of Argyle." He kept the seat. TORONTO'S LOYALTY (Stratford Beacon) The Toronto Globe very pertinently asks whether the people of that city are as loyal as their talk would in- dicate, or are merely noisy. It points out that although something like ten years ago it was announced with much profusion of patriotic fervor that a memorial shaft was to be erected in honor of the Toronto soldiers who fell in South Africa, only have been raised, and of that was voted by the Provincial government and the city council! But Toronto patriotism is always very noisy, some of it being of a brand to be found elsewhere, shout- ing much and doing little.

Af- ter a month's delay, he informed Mr. Cooper .that a formal appeal must be made to'the Premier of British Col- uroibia in order that the matter might be brought before the executive. This was, done, the appeal being handed to the Premier on March 12. On Ap- ril 21 the answer was received saying, "The government does not consider .that this csfte lies within, the purview of the Public Inquiries This action .coupled with that of the Attorney General makes any fur- ther .inquiry impossible. If the state- "ment of Mr. Borden concerning the telegram is true, if the statement of the British Columbia politicians and press wre true, if the statement of the culprit who confessed to ihe-bisb- op then the government should welcome the fullest inquiry, for the sake of the honor of their leader McBride and his colleagues should hasten to clear him and Mr. Borden for the sake oFTus own name should demand that the fullest pos- sible inquiry be made to vindicate him completely.
