THE'WEEKLY HERALD, Pub'iihed every Wedueedty eisht or more and contains a su-nmary of toe flews ot the weefc, local and district I year to 6 mmtta MR. DINGMAN'S WARNING. THROUGH the Calgary press Mr. Dufgman 1 issues a warning to the public against giving. to frenzied speculation. He says "'I absolutely no interest in the matter than of kn ordinary citizen. The shares of my company are not for sale, and I have no interest in knock- Only I think that following the general depression last year, people, shoUd not be carried away by the mania of speculation." In the present epidemic of oil investing, warn- i Ing, such as Mr. Dingman ghes, may fall on idle pars, but at the same time it is worthy of earnest consideration if the people are to be sai ed from falling into every kind of speculation offered them. As is the rule in all booms, companies Veep starting up almost every day, and what they prac- tically have to offer should be made the subject of investigation. The Tellable ones should not be made to suffer through the methods of the un- scrupulous. These at the same time b> their me- thods will affect the Deputation which the prov- ince has already earned through the oil discov- ers In this the people are masters of the situa- rests with them to exercise their bet- ter judgment and discrimination. By doing this they-will be giving the wildcatters a wide berth and, "by making their operations unprofitable, a useful service will be rendered in eliminating them. If they have not alreadj done so it Js time that the provincial authorities looked carefully into the propositions wnich the various companies have to offer, and so exercise a censorship over the formation of companies Out of regard lor the province and the public this is absolutely necessary. At least that drilling operations should begin within a certain time should be enforced, and the possibilities of oil should he clearly mdi- cated. MAKING THE BEST OF IT. NOTHING comes amiss to certain organs in turning the same to the credit of the govern- ment and party. It is a happy knack which re- quires a certain amount of ingenuity, and which practice helps to make perfect We have an in- stance of the kind in the Calgary Herald, which sees'in-the defection of Messrs. Bennett and Nickle, over the government C. N. R. "the breadth and bigness of the Conservative party, and its as compared with the Liberal party and its leader. Rather proud Words in the case of two in a crowd, who cannot be said to exactly mirror the great proportions of the rest of the party at Ottawa in th'at they failed to bring any one of them to vote as -they did at the last C. N. R. division in the House. Under Mr. Borderi, says the Calgary -Herald, there is room for independence. '-While it ifiay not be exactly what that journal implies, we certainly agree that there is, particularly in'an attitude towards the government's railway policy. The pity is that there were not more than two to assume this attitude, and so considerably strengthen the Herald's statement .as to the-mag- niiicent abstract proportions of the Conservative party and its leader. Even one more would have been serviceable, for then their, names would have, gone down; to history as similar to tlVe three Curatii, the three Horaliij or the three men who the bridge over the Tiber, who by their deeds personified the valor of the great Roman pepjrte. Bennett ar.d Nickle are worthy of reapect for their action ih the G N R pdlicy.

Don't be alarmed. It was only the aftermath of H. B. Bennett's flerv speech on the proposal to make Canada the office boy of, the Canadian Northern. The man who invests in oil stocks in a com- j pany whfch he has not investigated and1 of which he knows nothing but the name, desencs to be' stung. After a couple of lean years Lethbridge- ites should know better. We predicted rain for Tuesday when the ball team Went to Bow Island. We have' also predict- ed rain for Monday which is a holiday. We guess- ed it right on Tuesday.1 Let us hope that after Monday we may he put in tliti column with nil the rest of the good little guesscrs. The commissioners split on the matter of the assessment. Some had a hunch they were alto-1 gether too unanimous down at the city hall. After the 1913 council, who wouldn't think that. The little break in the monotony comes as a gentle surprise. The Herald has sent a man to Coutts loday Ic investigate personally the reports of the oil pros- pecting developments along the international boundary.'- It is the Herald's desire, to give its readers only reliable information as to what is doing in the oil boom. With so many rumors flying through the air it is hard to separate those of the sheep variety .from those with "goat" tag- ged to them. But we will do our best. Mean- while do not get more than mildly excited. It has heen pointed out to the Herald that the local company formed purpose of sinking a well in search for oil in this immediate vicinity has four chances. They may strike a larger vein of the very valuable deposits that have made Lethbridge famous as a coal mining centre. They may strike gas, and Lethbridge would then be up'with the best. They may strike what they are going would be better still. Or they may strike an artesian well, which woiild solve many of the city's waterworks difficulties So there are of winning on any of four throws. They appear to be chances well worth taking in view of developments else- where Of course we have hopes that they will strike an artesian oil well. That would knock the other possibilities all hollow.
