With the advent 'of the "Moteou's Bask, we will have five of thg leading banks of Canada with branches in this city. Lethbridge is rapidly becoming recog- nized by the financial institutions of this country as a live centre with a wonderful future ahead of it. They realize is surrounded by one of the richest farming and min- ing in Western Canada and is bound to be cue of .the largest cities west of the Great Lakes.

But neither Mr. Magrath not any other Conservative had any sag- gesuou to alter. It because ot their oposition to it that the bill not patted the year before and what criticism offered be- cause it was thought the government was giving ihe homesteader too much. The time for Mr. Mugrath to have found out that the bill was un fair was when the bill was pasfeiug the House of Commons. A careful study of the bill, however, should sat isfy him that the conditions are emi- nently fair for the homesteader. wrong doiug ma4e bf the Cntmnt- tivvi led- by Mr. The people ihe ihe rulers who are baiof appreoile time efloria io de- velop the country.

Mr. Borden de- nonuced this scheme as wrong and includes its-lands in his policy of restitution. Mr. Magrath, at Magrath, boldly, declared for Mr. Borde'n's policy but at Medicine Hat, he excluded th.e Kobbins Irrigation lands from the list. Mr. Magrath seems to be rapidly acquiring all the instincts of a poli- tician.- He is after votes. with the annual expenditure increas- ed by in eleven if no beneficial result could be poiuted to as a consequence.

Mackenzie King is practicing his doctrine of peace hy chumming with his political oppon- ent. Though political opponents, Mr. King and Mr'; Eeid are personal friends. A good example to follow. At the Liberal Convention at New Westminster -Jardine got 123 votes and Kennedy got 23. It was "1, 2, 3, for Jardinp. and "23 skidoo" for Kennedy, j The Medicine Hat Times does not mention the bouquets handed out to the Eye-Opener by W. C. Ives at the recent Magrath meeting. It is evi- dently ashamed of the doughty lieu- tenant's action. R. L. Borden i.s likely to have sev- eral ittirsisters of the Interior in his cabinet if he ever wins the election. R. P. Roblin is said to be slated for the position. Senator Lougheed has claims that cannot be overlooked. T. Mayno Daly is going into the fight on that promise, and local Conserva- tives have an assurance that C. a road allowance. thus available for the fulfilment of the original home- stead conditions. To ask such a one to comply with the conditions of the Oliver bill was an unfair proposi- tion." Either Mr. Magrath or the Times reporter is hopelessly mixed regard- ing the conditions governing the ac- quiring of pre-emptions and purchased homesteads. According to the abort- report Mr. Magrath considers them one and the same thing. According to section 27 of the Do- minion Lands Act a homesteader "may pre-empt any available quar- ter section lying alongside his home- stead or separated therefrom by only Tf p.r> land i? pre-emption, the homesteader who has compM.-d the duties on his homestead entitling him to his patent or who has got his pa- tent, may purchase a quarter section anywhere within the pre-emption area. The act does not require as Mr. Ma- grath says, "a three years' residence upon the pre-empted quarter perhaps miles from their original homestead." The pre-empted quarter cannot under tin: Act be farther away than across the road at the farthest. Mr. Magrath probably meant to refer to the purchased homestead. But even then is mistaken, as the act says (section 28, sub-section 2) "If the land entered iinder this section (Purchased Homestead) is situate within a distance of not more than nine miles from the entrant's home- stead and in a direct line, exclusive of the width of road allowances cros- and i A. Magrath will usurp Frank Oliver From present appearances Lougheet has the best chance as he does not have to be elected. In his address to the electors ol West Assiniboia in the campaign o: 13% the late Nicholas Flood Davii said: "VVt- have a rich country ir Western Assiniboia, but its wealtl has not yet been made available mainly because of the'utter want o originality of mind that has charac torized the management of the De partment of the Interior in the past.' That was a Tory's opinion of T. M Daly'.s administration of the Inter ior Dr-partment. Mr. Daly ia a creature could not- have that twelve years ago Canada was crying out too much Tupper. Tn-sy were too rich for her blood. They sat leavy, like a bride's home-made bread. And Canada got rid of tLe Tuppers in-some such violent fash- ion as the old Romans did when they aad too much to eat. After which ihe- national stomach regained! tone and got strong again. And all this, a rakehelly, temerarious spider tackles a Tupper, the Tupper- est Tupper of 'em all, steeped in his opinions, and whars more, feverish and inflamed with politics at. the time. No one can tell us that the spider did it through hunger. ers are more friendly to politicians than that. Wlisi ;did the spider do for Kobert Bruce?
