IN DECIDING to increase the an- nual grant to the Lethbridge Poultry Association from to 150 the city council acted in a man- ner which will be approved by the 'majority of citizens. While the fa- crease is not large even in these times when money is lwrd to set, .municipally at the council showed its Interest in the association, and did something at least to help their plans for a bigger'poultry show than ever this The cause oi the Poultry Associa- tion is a commendable one, and should receive the individual support of the Help the Egg Producers ratepayers as well. During the past season fanciers have shipped in hmi- dreds ot dollars worth of, prize stock to this district. They have expended their money probably for show pur- poses in but in the end it will help to build up the egg and poultry industry in the Lethbridge judging by the price of eggs any time in the year, any move- ment which will tend to increase the supply ahouM be supported. It is pleasing to ses tbat the banks are supporting the poultry show for this winter, and every effort should be made to make it one of the big events of the winter, Needless Anticipation IN THE) ALBERT HALL. London, England, there was held a great demonstration by tbe Unionist parly, in which its spokesman, the SJaTquis of Lansdowhe, took occasion to emphasize the fact that the-first item in ibe Unionist policy was tariff 'reform. Skilfully, "he- introduced the 'doinhiions into: his speech, and pro- 'ceeded to say Ihat "if, when the time comes, they ask us to grant them a moderate duty upon foreign sufficient to bring into our markets the great and unlimited granaries ot [Jl Canada and Australia, shall not be deterred from examining their pro- posal by any statement that It will involve the taxation of food." Fur- ther, tbe noble Mantuis proceeded to state that the revenues raised by that means would not be treated as ordin- ary revenue, but would 'be applied to alleviating the burden of the workers. There is a good deal ol" sophistry in Lord liaasdowne's statements. He is creating an inconvenience for the purpose of doing away -with it, in a way which he does not exactly show .will be practicable. But this is one those .things which politicians use for accomplishing their first- duty which Mr. Bouar Law. who spoke im 'mediately after, sdid was "to dust the government." The Unionist party seems to have realized the wishes of Canadians more than the Canadians themselves. At any rate, those who are directly interested in the selling of their pro- duce, the Canadian farmers. These have no wish to possess themselves of advantages ai the expense of that portion of the British public which can least bear the brunt of food taxa- tion, however cleverly the Martinis Lansdtnvne might say that revenue will be used fo-r the removal of. their burdens. A free market to the south will be infinitely preferable to the grain growers of the west, than a market afforded them at the price the tariff reformers of Great Britain are seeking to place at their disposal. T To Stamp Out the Gunman WENTY TEARS in the Edmon- ton penitentiary was the sen- tence imposed by .Mr. Justice Biliart at the Medicine Hat sessions en a gunman. Not so long ago a Similar sentence was passed on a like offender Ijy Mr. Justice Walsh at Lethbridge. In the Medicine Hat case the verdict was one of man- slaughter, and, considering tbat the man shot at was killed, the prisoner in the case might under the cireum- stances consider himself lucky that he escaped capital punishment. It has evidently come home to those arc appointed to carry out the law, that shooting is becoming far too common in thin country. "Scarcely a veck remarked Mr. .lusticc Stuart, "without someone being shot, sentences. These our judges fully in tend to hand out, and it may be tukfl-n that they 'will use to the full the powers at their command. Whether the severity of sentences does, in all cases, lemi towards the checking of crime has been a subjec of argument. But it is evident tha in those crimes in which the method! of a coward are resorted to, sever, sentences, which would make cowards shrink, are the only means of deter ring them from making use of means which appeal-to their cowardly na ture for carrying out their crimina purposes. This was well exemplified' in the crime of "garrotting" which created a shorl, reign of terror some years ago in the British Isles. This was only stamped out, in every case where the offender was brought to justice, by inflicting the Insh In addi- tion to the ordinary prison sentence. There are two sides to'the various issues raised ill the municipal cam- j'aign. Let both bo heard with re- spect. Mr. Coderre Is elected but it was cblelly through courtesy and was in no way a vindication or ccndfimmtion of any kind of naval policy. Sydney, Australia, is credited with enforcing 'tidiness by giving inspect- ors power to line a man on the spot who is caught throwing cigar stubs, newspapers, theatre tickets or other discard on the streets. It docs away with the Englishman's-right to a de- fence, but probably ilin civic authori- ties regard it as an otleiice without a lict'eiice. The...national'.policy so far as the tariff is concerned Is lo a duly on llrltislt goods so as to keep Drltlsli manufacturers out of Canada. The ineu who advocate this policy oppose a naval policy which would mean the of it swat industry in Canada, sivo employment to scores of hundreds, and use the products of Canadian forests, mines and factories. Where does: Ihe consistency conic in- Lander's policy Is a-home built navy to bo an integral part of the British fleet. VEST POCKET TALKS ON THE NEW GITY CHARTER II.-REFERENDUM WOULD SETTLE IT T more vear HE question'ot a lair or mini- mum wage scale in city and t-ity contracts has been a or less live topic evcry or ibc past six nit judging from Monday Night's meeting of south side ratepay- ers it is now no nearer'a settlement one way or the other than it ever was. For years candidates have been uizzed as to their stand on this mat- death and taxes, is still with us. At Monday night's meeting oi south side ratepayers the annual perform- ance was gone through and every didatc who spoke was sharply tioncd as to his stand on the mat- j tcr. Some stated they believed inlhci principle, others tmibbled, still others refused to states their views under the circumstances, indicated that they had not made up their minds, or were, .opposed to it. Even those who declared they he- j lieved in tlie direct commission plan, and the initiative, referendum and re-j call, failed, when the question was propounded to to answer it in the only way which would conform to their direct commission principles, and in the way which, alter all, is1; the only way the m.ittcr can or will j ever bo definitely settled. Under the initiative ami referendum! the matter like all .other could come before the ratepayers in; one of three diEerent ways, but in each it would he decided by the rate- payers themselves. J 1. If the commissioners refused to! enact a for a mini-j mum or fair wage scale .in all speci- fications and all work, those in .favor of the proposal could, the. the. submission- .pi the question loathe ratepayers, tlie resultant vote deciding .matter definitely. .3., If the.- commission.proposed law without consulUng the ratepay- ers, and-if any ratepayers sincerely opposed tlie measure, they would have the risht through the referendum, tit the cost oi a little., personal trouble and a little time, to have the mat- ers, the resultant vote deciding the matter. 'i. If were doubt- ful in their own imnds about the mat- ter and ilid not care to shoulder the responsibility of acting one way or the other, they could have it decided delinUely by submission to the rate- payers. not this lie infinitely better, than the present system under this matter has been dragging, along for six years, hopelessly tangled up with a thousand and one other mat- te.rs of public interest and public im- portance and with the pre-election opinions of .several dozen candidates. After all, it is the business oi the ratepayers. If the representative or popular government mean anything they mean that the ratepayers'busi- ness shall be carried.on, and all mat- ters decided, as nearly as possible in accordance with.jjie_will of the ma- jority of tbe ratepayers. One of the secrets ai the success oi commission; is thai it at all" timeunakes clear what is and what is not the will ot the majority of tlie''ratepayers.

Box 1979 Phone 1291 Hit By the Machine (Brantford Expositor) .It is not easy to find justification for the action of the Minister of La- bor in refusing to appolnt_a concilia- tion board, under the Lemieux act, to investigate the grievances, real or imaginary, of the C. P. R. employees who are now on strike. Possibly the close alliance which exists between the railroad corporation concerned and the Conservative party may have something to do with it.
