The Herald does not always agree with Mr. Ives but It has no hesitation In supporting that gentleman in his effort to become an alderman. He is one who will give the city, good, honest, faith ful service and will do much to foster a progressive spirit in the Council such as should help the city to make very matorial progress this yoar.

Return of Mr. Buchanan. W. A. Buchanan who hus been associated with tlie Lethbridge Herald ever since its beginning and who until last Murch wits its editor and manager, has resigned his position as Provincial Librarian to return to Lothliridgo and The Herald. He has organi7V.il a public library system (or nrrujiged the province, having H droSted ready would asr^a to tender ARjtw MalY Dob Fydwards, in last week's Eye Opener says' his prospects to the Con scrvatlve convention in Lethbridge as follows:- The Conservative convention at Lethbridge on Friday last, which nominated Mr. Magrath, was the rawest bluff pulled off in Alberta since Casey threw down His bat. The love of Medicine Hat for Lvth bridge, as everybody knows, is as tender and truo as that of the average step mother for tho other woman's kids, and the love of Loth-Lcthbridgo for the Hat, carries the sanio brand. Medicine Hat had a man in view for the nomination in the person ot Hilly Cousins. The Hat delegates came up to the coal town thirty-five strong to hack their man CouHins.- except Magrath, becuuse they knew they could not bent him in convention. l\es. the perennial cnndiduU of Lethbridge. hud the call in. his town if Magrath .were out of tho running. The delegates from the Hat arrived on Friday morning. The convention was not callfd uotil nine o'clock at night, and tho diy �'(!' 8|x-nt in caucusing It wns ilim'.ly thnt the ru.d factious lli -,- The Moat Uakiadsst tion to Magrath. and if be pivtivcly refused ,to accept, Own anotger convention would bo called to choose a sacrifice. Mr. Magrath had already declined tho nomination. He was inj OUawa anil not present at the convention at which his nomination' was made : A wire was sent'him asking him in the event of -another mun-being nominated could tho party do|wnd on his support and influence. His reply was clearly and positively In the negative and to the effect that he would not guarantee either influence or support. In the face of this he was nomlnat ed and the fact heralded to the world with a mighty flourish of .trumpet*. The announcement of his acceptance has not been published, and is not likely to be. l.AUSOX-LOGAN On Saturday afternoon in the parsonage on lliflpath street, Edgar C. Larson und Ilelgo Logan were married by the I lev. J. M. Harrison. Mr. and Mrs. Larson arc both from Hnnfl but Mr. Uuson is no stranger to Lethbridge as lie has done considerable business here and the happy couple will probably remain here a few weeks before returning north. Dr. till vers spoke for nn active as-J| slstnfi'co of the candidate In every necessary way. D. H. F.Kon urged that'the seal shown there would be kept up, and spoke of Liberalism as the policy of the West. The people should praise Providence and bless Liberal Isln for the abounding^ prosperity. Martin WoOlf as a represent ntlveof Cardston, promised tK*1 " the tialanee of the' tiding,. wouU) hold its oyn, Simmons would win on Cardston > vote., Uuncan MarsHalt tookjas his subject' the itromliie* of have' been fulAlljkl and .among. others, mentioned the abolition of the gerrymander, and the Franchise Act, the giving of the land Xo the settlers, and the revenue tariff.

I*-' Tox the outsider the position in which the Conservatives ' of tho -Medicine Hat riding find themselves owing his old-time rival nnd supporter W. V: Ives from getting the nomination. Such 'treatment is not dun Mr. Ives from his friend Herron, os to no ota. or man does lie owe more, politically, than to W. I.'. Jvcs, who gracefully allowed him to have, the last nomination, to avoid u deadlock, and who in the campaign was the sult-nowlt}dged meuns of his vinning the clection. And this Is his reward. One of tho most blatant ot the bunch of delegates said that Magrath was only waiting to have the nomination tendered 'to him unanimously that he wanted it and would accept it. Wo hardly think Magrath is that kind of man. lie will rather resent the inference in the light of his previous refusal, either us a candidate or as a privutu citizen to pull the Tory chestnuts out of tin" lire or net us referee for 'the Kilkenny cuts in the southern constituency, which (With any other man ihj Tories cull lig up is sure to go Cirit. CRAHD-CLAUKE A very delightful company assembled in the home of Paul S. Clarke, Esq., of tiranum, on November 21st, when, in the presence of a few of tho bride's friends.

Mr. Crab!) wos accom panied hy the Rev. J. M. Harrison, of Wesley t'hurch, who performed the ceremony. Talked About Dr. Warden. The Populor Candidal*. The decision of Mayor GnlliTaiith not to seek reelection leaves a. straight fight' for the mayoralty between Aid. Bowman and Wm. Hondor on. There is UUle doubt but what the great bulk of the support that . Wquld' have gone to the Mayor will lie accorded to tho former candidate. Aid. Bowman's assurance that ho Will follow Mayor Galbraith's policy ' tn the license and police department has made solid for him a very large fcpart of the voters which have ad paired the retiring Mayor's stand in |ipie regard. w- \ f llavlfig^'bseii intimately connect id mV^*h ^� �'v�c affairs for many years, k'.d' a|�d .particularly since Lethbridge has The mooting of the Young People's Guild of Knox Church last Monday evening was in the hands of the missionary committee in charge of Miss Hruco. The topic of tho evening was Dr. Warden, tho lute church treasurer Mr. Cope, read a carefully prepared paper on his life while Miss Fnrso und 3Ir. Irving read extracts from some very Interesting works on his life. A wry enjoyable feature of the evening was an anthem by a choir of boys. Rev. A. M. Gordon in his usual interesting stylo gave some humorous personal rominisoonoces of missionary work at Cantnoro, Laggan and Banff. Miss Jessie IMchor delighted her audience by her solo "Plains of Peace." During the meeting an Invitation was extended to tho Epwonth League of the Methodist Church to bo present at next v-oeks meeting of tho Guild. An All Red Alberta Cont:nuod from Page 1 by lion.
