From Minnesota especially we are receiving a great many settlers mid it help us in Uint State if we hail a visit from the men who con- duct the leading newspapers anil are framing public opinion. We want to show them what a line district a lot of their people are migrating to. It would advertise us well in Michi- gan to have the newspaper men of that State pay us a visit. Michi- gan fanners in large numbers are tak- ing up lurid in the West but ihis dis- trict has not secured many of them. A trip here by the editors and an ar- ticle on our resources on their return to their homes would turn attention in this direction. There is no better kind of publicity than that secured through the papers and we can get it in big bun- ches if we have a visit from the ed- itors in these important States. iasm, "look what 'grandpa has got."

Without looking up the precedents in the matter, he pro- ceeded to fill the order, quietly putt- ing tin- five chocolates into the wait- ing hand of the Put had a few minutes of Miss.

A lady turned to the daugh- ter of the humorist. ihen u little girl, arid said: "Your father is a very funny num." responded the child, "when we have company." A strange story comes from one o states, where commercia morality is still in its infancy.

The fact is, that since 1904, they have been appointed by the Roblin government, which invariably select partisans.

The debate on the Ayle.sworth Bill has proceeded sufficiently to show how great is the superiority of the Liberal arguments. The case for a revision of the Provincial lists im- mediately prior to the Dominion elec- tions is overwhelming. If the Oppo- sition were to concede thin frankly and concentrate their criticism upon the provisions of the Aylesworth bill, which, they claim, will give the} Liberals an unfair advantage in the revision, they might be doing them-! selves a service. If the Aylesworth measure is defective we do not doubt the. Minister of Justice will care fully consider any suggestions for iu? improvement. The Manitoba Liberals who are mainly responsible for ine introduction of the Aylesworth bill. .ire looking for no "cinch" on ilu-ir oppontnts; and are quite willing to the bill, if it requires it, amend- ed so that it will be beyond criticism.
