The local campaign now In progress has revealed gen- uine sympathy with the move- ment on the part of rich and poor. Real sacrifices are being made in many instances in order to con- tribute. Employees in mines, mills and factories are contribut- ing a share of their wages to the fund, in a number of instances for a period of twelve months. It very rarely that the canvasser meet with a refusal from a per- son able to give, and in such a case It is taken for granted that the man thinks more of the al- mighty dollar than he does of hi country, or the men in the trench- es. All the contributions are en- tirely voluntary, if a citizen re- fuses to give, that's his busines but such occurrences are so rare that the canvassers can report a general desire on the part of the people to be as generous as their means will permit. It is now cer- tain that Lethbridne will raise considerably better than the am- ount alloted. Double the amount proposed can be raised if the citizens fully realize the needs of this areat patriotic cause. THE GENEROUS CHINESE The co-operation towards the Patri- otic Fund is finding ussistance not only from Canadians, but from oilier nation- alities settled in our midst, ami this fact is generally known. It was not, however, thought that great co-opera- tion would given by the Chinese and it was a pleasant surprise to the executive committee of this Calg m local fund during its campaign, when Mr. Kheang came forward and asked that he be supplied with two 01 three hundred subscription cards, and volunteered to get subscriptions and bring Ihein in to tlie fund. .Mr. Klieang therefore canvassed Chinatown, ami he returned with a surprise for the committee in a strong donation from Chinamen who have settled in Calgary and "who owe a great debt ot gratitude to the city for kind treatment during the years that they have been here." Lethbridge. Celestials will do their part, too, and they may surpass in their, generosity some of our so called white population. In this campaign there will be whites who will show a strong streak of yellow.
