COM.MENDABLE AGITATION THE HERALD applauds Ihe persistency of Uiose interested in the public library movement in their' endeavors io have the scheme realized. We have enthusiasts are doing their por- tion to aid Lelhbridge in a forward industrial nnii commercial movement. Their spirit is admirable, but none the less worthy is that of those who are striving after the intellectual develop- ment of the city. They deserve thanks for the interest they are showing in add'ing to Lethhridge an asset which is of no small importance to the Lethbridge is distinguished by the number of its young population. Our well-built schools, with their modern equip- ment, testify lo the responsibility we feel in their upbringing But it does not appear right that.the public responsibility shouU when the age when education is no longer compulson arrives. To those who are not able to avail themselves of the advantages of further education in the institutions provided for that purpose other avenues should be opened, and here is where a free library becomes absolutely a social necessity. The taste for reading is sought to be the lib- raries attached lo the schools, but opportunities for carrying on the desire which has been grafted are deplorably absent for a eih of the size of Letlibridge, where there is certainly more than an aggregate average of intelligence, When one considers the small, and hardly to be considered 'addition to the rale which would be necessary for ils mainten becomes a source of surprise that a.publb library has taken so long-to materialize.- We have had the Carnegie offer mid if it is only n matter of a name for the institution thai shouU -not afford any serious drawback to its .acceptance. Happily the city authorities appear to be aroused to tin iiecessity of moving with Ihe popular sentiment. There ough not lo be any serious difficulty in having a sile furnished. Onci the ball has been set rolling efforts should not be diminishes :imtil the object is accomplished. The citizens who arc sensei iwith the responsibility of acquiring for the city an educaliona end intellectually recreative centre, are engaged in most com jnendable effort.

The increase in the number of insane from (he L'niled Stales has boon so serious in recent years lhat the local authorities have petitioned the gov- ernment in regard lo Ihe matter. Why these fotmcr immigrants from Ireland should he deported by the United Slnles after spending such a long lime in the latter country seems incomprehensible. They had become citizens of (he United States and chargeable upon that country. Apart from what looks like callousness on the part of au- Ihorilies with regard lo those menially helpless, Ireland has good ground for resenting this undesirable importation. II is to be hoped lhal her representations will meet with Hie consideration thev deserve. OUR -POINT OF VIEW Southern Alberta faces a year of unprecedented prosperity. i.clhbridge business men are making steady and substantial progress as evidenced by the volume of freight through the local C.

The picture of Ills doings are ly in keeping with the progress which has been credited lo tlic and insinuates Hut the wild anil woolly flavor with which it has lieen erstwhile.associated has not altogether disappeared in certain quarters. Edson is a small town, buf it is not altogether remote from Ihe confines of civilization. The experience it affords is edifying in that it emphasizes the importance, even in a small town, of the necessity of a careful discrimination in 'the.appointment of im official who lays claim lo the distinction of'b'eing styled Chief of Police. There is something of comic opera in the description of the personification of law and order in the town of Edson parading (he streets, in company with his hrolher, a member of the force, ..with a drawn revolver, and the pair being arrested by the Mount ed Police. The end of ihe uuedifying scene was that the tnu-u lent couple were both badly beaten up by the people before hc- .ing finally placed under arrest. A beautiful travesty of law and order! When one considers the responsibility attached (o the office of a chief constable, and the many calls for tact and diplomacy which through his influence should permeate the force under his command, one realizes that a highly paid-official is not a luxury hut a necessity. The emolument provides for the hiring of an official who to prove a success should embody all these .'qualifications. To lake the law into his own hands and use his authority in maltreating a cilizcn is one of the greatest abuses of hii office which n constable_can be guilty of. The good people of Kdson naturally resented Iliis. But the citizens would he wise in select- ing a successor to Chief Wilson to make the position iis attract ivc as possible in a pecuniary sense to ensure Hie prevention of an exhibition which is a refloclion on the regard for law and order which has become characteristic of all portions of the JVcst. Mr. Bordcn received a great welcome in Toronto, but not any greater than such a solidly Tory city should yivc ils luader. [t was not proportionately as great as the reception given the Liberal chieftain a few days ago.
