It Is.tho ouly sane policy. The peopte of.Alberta, when the dis- closures in connection with the A. G. W. agreement were made, were absolutely opposed to the Clarkeg and their railway, and the Sifton policy of cancellation of the agreement welcomed as the proper solution. The Tory policy Is not what the people wanted at that time, though the result of the recent bye-elections may betaken by some as an indication that the minds of the people changed.- We do not think the people really in- telligently considered the merits of the policies at that time. If they be made with, the Kansas City pro- moters. The people of Alberta want a 'railroad built into the Great North, but they have not been convinced that it should be built via the route of the A. G. The iienei Policy Is to build the A. G. W. under im. amended contract. The- Sifton policy is to take the money iway from the Cljrkes and build along an entirely new route. Justice Stuart, who has given the udgment upholding the Slfton policy, Is o'ne of the most erudite on the Alberta bench.. Wlien he gave his judgment he knew it would have to stand dissection by higher courts, it is natural to conclude that id after careful bis month, and -would prefer that snould just sit down and be thankful lor what we are about to receive, in- cidentally handing to the Hon.

Those who know, howTever, are per- ectly well aware that the.honorable entleman had no more to do with settling" the strike than the man in j he moon.- It is "a well understood ning that the most powerful Sinter- st concerned, namely, the C.

We do not believe the people of AI- want the Clarkes hack in this province. We do not believe they want the A. and G. W. built under a contract that was as bad as careless- ness could make it. do'not be- lieve they would- desire to save the cost of a law suit.when such prinoi pies are at staked It is because we hold tJi'ase views mat we refuse to look upon the ver diet in the bye-elections as a sober expression of opinion on provincial ssues. It was rather an echo of the crash' of September 21st. When the 'rovilice of Alberta speaks it will commend the stand of the men who stood for the'-infeVests of tire people fgartlless of 'party advantage, and will uphold the-policy of the govern- ment which placed the honor of Al- oerta higher than the cost of a law- suit. FKO.M ji sanitary standpoint, ther is a crying evil which ''does no saem to have attracted the ai tenUon of the city authorities. W refer to the existence in the'residcn Ual quarters of the out-of-door "con ventenou." There is not the'slight est reason why theso should be allow to exist where a sewer connection is available. That they are there Is apparent to anyone endowed with the of sight and smell, and where sewers have-teen installed for some time. The City Council'Is doing good and praiseworthy, work in making ijethbridge a city beautiful, and a city up-to-date in works of utility, but it, seems pio have shut its eyes to what is a positive nuisance and an eyesore. The owners of hotis- 'es should be compelled to make sewer connection whei'a available. It Is a squeamish sentiment which considers mat this sanitary enforcement would work any personal hardship. The Health of the community iu far more important than the expanse placed on an Individual. Should even this be A Menace to Health seriduity considered it Is better far tnat the city authorities should do the neceta'ary work at the public expense. H will belfor the.public good..

The' concessions given and. taken, in addition to what were suggested at tnat gathering ,are trifling. The responsibility for the long con- tinuance of strike rests not upon the mine workers, a'tthouglrtheir spir- t has not always been above criti- m, and not upon the file railway corporations, which ended deadlock when it suited its conveni- ence, and not and allowed Ihe empty honor to be appropriated by the Cabinet Minister.

A Local Infantry Corps There are some who, no doubt, cavil at any such organizations, when the trend of national opinion ds towards furtherance of peace. They short- sightedly look on any such movements as having in llwlr nature something or. aggressiveness.

Hut tilt rlfli mioclmion The Bye-Electioni fCamrose Canadian.) The four bye-elections in Southern Alberta have served to bring the is- sues of provincial politics before -the electors more definitely than they previously been. The SlftoQ government, in accord- ance with the almost unanimous voice oi' the people and the" press, imtvar- took to veto the Alberta.and Great waterways railway bargain, and to sever all connection with the Gtarkes, offKansas cits-. There can be no question that this Was .the .policy de- manded by. Alberta. Following the carrying out of this policy, there came a law suit to re- cover the A. and G. W.'money. This was expected. It was faced courage- ously, as the only way to properly vin- nicate the position of the province.

Their trip amounted to'a'succession of de- nates, and sonre spots in the moun- tains were so small that- they had to occupy the same bed. In spite of their political differences they were u friends. Une night Mr. Marian got into bed Just as McCreary was about, to step in, Harlan raised his huge form and said: "McCreary, there is one thing cer- tain. The next governor of Kentucky is in this bed."
