THE WEEKLY Published every Wednesday In eight oTmofe contains a summary of tilt- of the week, loca atul o months We in advance The Price of Beef RECIPROCITY IS DEAD, our Con- servative friends attempt to tell us, but for something that is life- loss and beyond all hope of resurrec- tion, they seem to pay it a great amount, of attention in their columns. Lately they have been harping oil wheat prices and intentionally' mis- leading the public- Let us direct their attention to the comparative prices for beef at Winnipeg and Chi- cago: We all know that there is an agitation abroad in the land in favor of mixed farming. .Mixed fanning means raising jive stock as weii as grain. Let us say the farmers are raising live stock. Will they not de- mand the best market in which to sell that live stock as they now do for wheat? Our Conservative friends who clamor for mixed farming because thev see in it a removal of the de- mand for access to the United States market will find they have been fool-ad. Today iu the United States about double the price is being paid for American beef at Chicago over the Canadian price at Winnipeg. The marked difference may bo unusual but It is'always the ease that the Chicago market is belter than'the Canadian. Reciprocity may be dead but it still speaketh. Th-e Canadian Tories may try to hoodwink the people but they must remember the people are doing the buying and selling day in and day out, and they know.whether the Unit- ed States market is worth getting into much better than partisan news- papers. Reciprocity got a crack in the head because crazy cries of annexation and disloyalty, but the people who were misled by those cries are coming to their senses. The New Chief }T WOULD APPEAR that the City Council made a wise move in ac- cepting the application of "vV m. R. Davis., ex-inspector of the Toronto police force, to fill the vacancy in the local force. In bringing Mr. Davis to the city to aci in that capacity they are geuing a man who is thoroughly versed in work. His long ex- perience in Toronto should be suffic- ient proof that he would have the necessary ability to mak-a the Leth- bridge force what is necessary for the policing of this city. There are some raise the ob- jection that Davis is 100 old for the posirien. In view of the fact that Chief Carpenter of Edmonton served iiveniy-seven years on the Montreal force, and is giving satisfaction in every way in the northern city, there should !.ie no doubt as to Davis' fit- ness on this account. Then too Inspector Davis comes with recommendations from men whose connection with civic affairs .in the big Ontario capital is sufficient in itself to warrant, (be local police com- mittee in accepting Davis on th-eir endorsation, -Men like Colonel Den- nieon, and Chief Constable Grassett would not recommend any man for the position 'whom they did not think suitable in every way, Tliere are men who have known the ex-inspector in- timately, aud have worked with him for the-past two decades, and their belief in the applicant's ability should Mr, Davis Is coming to LethbTidge a stranger, who will have to grapple with the problem of policing a western city for. the-first time in his career. Let him.come with the best wishes of the citizens of Lethbridge for his suc- cess, and let every opportunity to make good bo extended to him. The Coming Congress THE DRY FARMING CONGRESS will soon be a reality, for we are now in the month in. which it is to be held. It is quite possible that the real importance oi the big exposition has not altogether come home in many of us. We have read of the different delegates, representing various countries, that are to visit us with al! the splendor of suites and appanages winch with official visits nn great occasions. We have heard much of tin? preparation in the way of illumination? and and It is just possible- that in the glamor of it all we have failed to realise what The congress really means, not cnly to LethhritlL-e and to its sur- roundings, but to the great west, nnd So Canada itself. Putting it. shortly, it may be said to be a national epoch, proclaiming ihe star; of a now jn agricultural de- velopment, enlarging jls possibilities, and adding greatly to the natural wealth of The Dominion. Without, a 3oubt the Confess nK-ans the salva- lion of the prairie acting in the lessons it gives, and the proofs Jt shows, the part of a great reformer.' It proclaims a crusade against the bleeding of the soil, and advances methods by which it may be conserv- ed for the use and the profit of the generations io come. In the matter of agriculture the west has much to learn, and if the, iessons which the Dry Farming gress teaches had only been known; and put into practice years ago. how- ever rapid the development, has been there is no gainsaying that it would have far away in excess. Those who have had the knowledge so far, and have made use of it. have pro- fitted in yields far above their neigh- bors. What has been special to some is to becom-e common to all, and when this fact is suflirently ap- preciated we can fully appraise al! (hat.the Congress menus to i.he pres- ent and to the future of tlu> west. The children of today -will lack back io the present year as Congress year which helped to make Western Can- ada thfl greatest agricultural region on the face of the globe.

Political Stories They are Telling of Late Sir Richard Cartwright The late Sir Hichurd Cartwright was so human that a. number of ex- cellent stories have gathered about bis name. Perhaps these stories ar-a a bit different from the stories that gather around the name of iho aver- age statesman or politician, for ull his life Sir Richard was the aristocrat in politics, lie rarely mingled with the crowd, he kept his personal life and hia polit'ical life in separate chambers. There is a story by a brilliant Amer- ican writer of a plot- EO states- man from the British House. This story is said to have been based upon ;i well known trait of Sir Hichard Cartwright. Three men are dining iu a club. Opposite them is a well known states- man, engaged in reading a book, tie was within a few pages of the end and every few minutes he glanced nervous- ly at the clock as though pressed for time. One of the three men watching him explained that he was tlie famous minister of the crown, and that he was due at ihe House in a few minutes to deliver an epoch-making speech. The man thus making the explanation wag a pclih'cal opponent. "I he told his t'.vo hearers, "'give ten thous- and dollars at this moment for n new story of Sherlocic Holmes. A good de- tective story is the only .thing that would keep him from the House to- night. He is late even now, but he will net leave till he finishes the story he is reading." His Story Book That was Sir Richard Cartwright to ihe life. It was lea years ago, dur- ing a most exciting, debate in the Commons, that Sir Richard was ob- served -to be pouring over a book. On ci couple occasions during the de- bate he was asked a question, which question he answered in the shortest possible manner and snort of impatience. When six o'clock came Sir File hard left for dinner, leaving the book be- hind GII bis seat. Someone suggested that the minister was engaged in studying: some profound work of fi- nance or philosophy, "Come and said a press gallery man who sat immediately above the minister's seat and who knew him. The little group stole into the Com- mons a.nil glanced at the title of ihe book, now lying exposed on the minisr ter's It was "Blue Lights, or Hot Work In the by R. M. Ballantyne, and its sub-title was "A Book for Boys." Indeed, Sir Richard on one occa- sion explained that he found such lit- erature a kind of mental soporific, that Is he could read with one part of his mind and follow proceedings with quite another part. Like the playing of Patience, of-which years ago he used to be extremely fond, he could put his in trim for some effort Irest by some light mechanical mental exercise such as reading a light work, just as the Marathon runner might spend a few minutes with the four- pound dumb-bells before starting on his twenty-mile ride. Sir Tliehard had road everything of Conan he is credited with knowing inmost every work of Henty, Indeed, right-to the last there was a peculiar boyish cast to his mentally he never seemed to have passed his prime.. This, too, was'noticeable in another respect in his famous moments of irri- tation, when, as well known, lie would blurt out some truth that others scare-sly dared whisper. And once the truth was out, people found it sim- plified matters exceedingly. Then occasionally he would show another kind of irritation. It was in bis own house one when a visitor was present, thai Sir Richard 'was in- terrupted by a crash in the hall. A passing servant had dropped a plate with a tremendous crash which quite threw Sir Richard off the thread of his argument.- The old gentleman -was furiously angry. "Fools, he said, "I've been, surrounded by them all my life. Fools, they've flighted my anil in a .moment the anger was all over and as the visitor passed out he saw Sir Richard slip a bill into the servant's hand, lest he slionld have heard ami1'his" feelings been hurt. Not Withdraw It was in the byplay of debate that Sir Richard shoived up best. When he referred to a certain group in thej they would have! been called "a few lewd fellows of the "baser one of thes'e designated fellows spent an hour oE the Commons' time to have the expression withdrawn. But Sir Richard explained' that he used the term in a purely Scriptural sense, and the incident did not result in any vic- tory for the protesting oppositionists of that day. It 'was Sir :Richard" (hat- stamped Mr. Foster as Cassius. This was at a time when, true or otherwise, it was said that thers was considerable fric- tion 'between Sir Charles Ttipper, the premier, and Mr. Foster, liis first lieutenant, and Sir Richard's humor- ous "Cassius hath a lean and hungry look" and his advice to the Caesar of th-e party 1.0 beware of assassination. political or otherwise, had about it a humorous tinge tiiat made the House shako wHh laughter. All tlieir lives there was a political vendetta between the two great op- ponertts, Cartwright and Foster. As valiant knights of the middle ages would net draw their gwor-d upon men j who 'were not their equal, so both Cartwright and Foster found satisfnc- j tion in twitting each other, seeing j only the other of all the House wasj able to answer tht-n in their own coin.

It wus, of course, largely in a Pick- wickian sense. Each of these orators had a sincere respect for the other. Personally they were friends, but the rules of the House Commons are something like the rules of the fenc- ing class; they are planned as to prevent -opponents seriously injuring I each other. These skilled rapier players took a delight in seeing how profound a blow they could inflict up- on each other without going outside the rules of the game. It was a dis- tinct point to the other one when he could persuade the Speaker of the House that his opponent had trans- gressed the rules of debate. Such was a blow below the belt, an unfair advantage thai took from its sting the hurt it otherwise might have achieved. H. E. A. in Ottawa Free Press.
