In K months in advance........7W. J Jack WW. NATJGHTON. America's j favorite ring critic, writes that Johnson has been elim- inated as thoroughly from the pugil (istic outlook, as though be had been '-signally -defeated by some rival heavy weight. The disgust at his miscon- duct is such that no OIHJ to think about 3um in any coimectiou. Which being interpreted implies that the champion of the prize ring has been administered a knockout blow by public opinion. This fact is refreshing in that it points-to the healthy tone of the1 gen- eral outlook towards sport. There is much to be said against boxing owing to the unfavorable element which surrounds it, and if the sport is to survive, the bad odor attached to it must needs be removed. In this re- 's "Knockout" H. B. Bennett speaking in Calgar announced the government's aav; policy. Who told him? Mr. Borde Imd not broken that: profound silenc which even the resignation of- a miu ister couldn't disturb. North Lethbridge ratepayers ivouh be well advised to select the best men they have in naming iildermanic can didates. The'bigger the man the bigger the general vote will be. It is doubtful H 'there will be anj tears shed over the defeat of the great Joseph Cannon. Joseph belong ed to a school of politician not per- sona grata with 'the people of today. spect the moral trine of the principals is important. What applies to boxing, applies equally to all forms of manly sport. So long as they are placed on a clean level, so long will they survive, aud fulfil the purposes for which they have been created, that of producing a virile race. Allow sport to degen- erate through its associations, and it will fail to earn the encouragement of- all self-respecting men, and so much the worse for the nations 'who have a name in the honor they have paid it. But there Is no need to worry that there will be any degeneration so long as public opinion, as shown in regard to Johnson prevails. For the sake of true' sport it is to be hoped that it will continue to be a force for preserving for 'manhood, in a whole some fashion, of the noblest oc cupations iu which it could be en ;aged. If in reforming the tariff Wood row Wilson would only allow Canadian grain free access to the American markets there would ba no party lines among- the farmers of this coun- try. All would be Wilson men. Aldermanic Candidate Ktost was iiit'd one dollar for tapping Calgary likely trying to find out whether was affected by the frost or :iot.

V EST POCKET TALKS ON THE NEW CITY CHARTER -LOOKING BACKWARD I An Empire ONE OF THE ARGUMENTS put forward at the time of the reci- procity campaign "was that the passing of the pact would have aa_ effect In destroying the identity ot Canadian made produce suca as cheese. This it was contended would be detrimental to the Canadian in- dustry, in that inferior produce wouh be able to be shipped to the British market as coming from Canada. But reciprocity, or no reciprocity the fact remains that snch a proced' ure now ex-fsts. This is to be Inferred by the deputation to the Dominion royal commission, now sitting in Lon- don, England, advocating an Empire trade mark. Col. Pelletier, of Que- bec, is reported 'to have said that since he has been in England ho had seen Canadian goods sold, the origin of which he was to trace. In speaking of cheese we are only Trade Mark using it as an example in that Can adian cheese is rated of high, qtialitj in the British market. But that al Canadian produce is open to spurious substitution may be taken as granted Jn the successful marketing of a country's produce an established qual stands for everything. It is, there- fore, important that for preserving the same intact, th-ere should be no means left for making use of a reputation wherewith to sell goods which in quality would tend to destroy tire very same. The idea of an E.mpire trade mark is essentially a good one, and would greatly stimulate the particular trade of a country or district 'within the Empire. A rivalry would be created in the matter of quality, which, is the first and last test for holding a maT. ket. The Empire trade mark in dis- tinctly disclosing the origin would act as an invaluable trade protection. The Flax EVIDENCE is accumulating daily that the flax industry can be developed in Southern Alberta "with profit to farmer and townsman. Tire result of investigations so far demonstrates that the straw of flax- grown in Southern Alberta has no superior in the world for the manu- facture of twine and all hemp and jute products, and it is proposed to further investigate so as to convince the farmer that the growing of (lax with a view to preserving the straw can be made one of tho most prolit- ablo of farm ventures. While the question of labor enters largely into the question it is not as serious as in some other forms of farm opera- tions, and certainly not to Irc com- pared with .beet raising in that re- spect. Ono of the great difficulties at Present in the Max Industry would be the changing ot the method of thresh. IDE so as to save tho straw. Under tho present threshing methods the straw is completely destroyed so far as utility is concerned, being badly broken in going through the machine. Herald Is informed, however, that Industry there is a system of threshing ivhe. by the straw is preserved for manu facturlng purposes, and to prove til to the farmer and to show that would be worth while, is the bigges pioneer problem in connection wit the campaign to develop the indust. so as to have the byproducts manu factured in this country. It seems t be recognized that the capital requir ed to start a mill, employing, say fiv hundred hands, is not alarming, an( is jrrobably the least troublesome problem of the lot. What must tx (lone is to convince the farmer tha it will pay. That done and the great cst barrier IE removed to the estab liahmemt of an industry which woul( give promise of being one having Ini menso bearing on the future pros porlty of Southern Alberta. The de- velopment of an Industry of this character counts, for it wonlc moan the using or a product now de- stroyed as valueless and Involving a loss of hundreds of thousands of dol- lars annually to the farmers, beside: preventing the development of si, promising an Industry.

In the fall of .following an educational .cainpaiso. carried 01 chiefly through the press of the city, two plebiscites were, taken regarding OK matter. The first consisted 01 nine questions, submitted to the burg esses by mail. The number of ques f.on forms returned was not very large; the exact number being three hundred and seventy-seven. A summary of the replies to tins plebiscite will be sufficient here. Three hundred aud eight answered 'yes" to the first question which read 'Are you in' favor of a commission form of while sixty- eight answered "no." Three hundred twelve auswered '.'yes" to the question "Do .you think three com- missioners will be while orty-three answered and seven, een omitted to answer. Two questions dealt with abolishing the aldermanic -system. They -both, In effect, asked the voters if they favored abolishing the present aider- manic council and adopting in its place the direct commission plan with the initiative, referendum and recall. But these two questions were so worded that if the voter favored the commission plan ho would have to answer "yes" to one question and "no" to the otlrer, the intention evi- dently being to befog the voter. But Lethbridge voters were not to be he- foged and showed a discriminating judgment, which those good people who do not believe the rest of the people have sufficient intelligence to vote upon measures, would ibe loathe to admit possible. They voted in favor of the .commission plan iu both questions. To the question putting the matter in the affirmative form the vote was two hundred and twelve for the commission plan, and one.him- dred and forty-nine for maintaining the aldermanic council. To the ques- tion putting the matter in tho nega- tive form, one hundred and -ninety- eight voted for the commission plan and one hundred and fifty-seven for maintaining the aldermanic council. Only twelve voters 'were caught nap- ping and voted, in one question, for the commission plan ana in the other, against it. The "recall" feature Imfl a question ill to itself and carried by two hun- dred and eighty-four votes to sixty- oiir, as did the "initiative" by two inndred and sixty'-nine-' to seventy- eight. Three hundred and thirty-six 'Oted in favor of the commissioners devoting their whole time to city busi- ness and only fifteen against. A question was submitted -which suggested a salary to each commis- sioner of {5000 per "year, or a total cost of per year for three com- missioners, a much higher figure than that suggested by the advocates of the commission plan. It appeared at the time as though the city council isertetl this figure in the hope of stampeding the voters against the whole commission plan. The voters did not favor such a high cost but they did not, therefore, vote down THE COMPANY OWNERS OF Suite 111 to 115 Sherlock Building P.O. Box 1979 Phone 1291 rairrn A In the Lethbridge District.
