The Price of Beef ECIPROCITY IS DEAD, our Con ^ servative friends attempt to tell us, but for something that is lifeless and beyond all hope of restrrrec-tion, they seem to pay it a great amount of attentjon in their columns, lately they have been h;irpixig on �wheat prices and intentionally misleading the public. Let us direct their attention to the comparative prices for beef at Winnipeg and Chicago. We all know that there is an agitation abroad in the land in favor of mixed farming. .Mi.xed farming �means raising live stcck as well as grain. Let us say the farmers are raising live stock. Will they not demand th� best market in which to sell that live stock as they now do for wheat? Our Conservative friends who clamor for mixed farming because they see in it a removal of the de- maud for access to the United Slates market will find th�y have been fool'ed. Today in the United States about double the price is being paid for American beet at Chicago over the Canadian price at Winniiwg. The marked difference may bo unusual but It la always the case that the Chicago market is better than the Canadian. Reciprocity may be dead but it still speaketh. The Canadian Tories may try to hoodwink the people but they must remember the people are doing the btiying and selling day in and day out, and th�y know whether the Unit-E'd Slates market is worth getting into much better than partisan newspapers. Reciprocity got a crack in the head becaivse of crazy cries of annexation and disloyalty, but th� people who were misled by those cries are coming to their senses. Political Stories They are Telling of Late Sir Richard Cartwright IT WOULD APPEAR that the City Council made a wise move In accepting the application of Wm. R. Davis, ex-inspector of tJie Toronto police force, to fill the vacancy in the local force. In bringing .Mr. Davis to th� city to act in that capacity they jiTe getting a man who is thoroughly versed in police work. His long experience in Toronto should be sutTic-iect proof that he wotild have the necessary ability to mak-a the Lelh-bridge force what is necessary for the policing of this city. There are some who raise the objection that DSvis is too old for the position. In view of the fact that Chief Carpenter of Edmonton served twenty-seven years on the Montreal force, and is giving satisfaction in every way jn the northern city, there should be no doubt as to Davis" fitness on this account. Tho late Sir Richard Cartwright was so human that a number of e.\-cclleut stories have gathered about his namp. Perhaps these stories ara a bit different from the stories that gather around the name of tho aver-ago statesman or politician, for all his life Sir Richard was the aristocrat in politics, he rarely mingled with the crowTi, he kept his personal life and hia poUt'icnl life in separate chambers. There is a story by a brilliant American writer of a plot to k�ep''^ statesman from the Hritiah House. This story is said to have been based upon a well known trait of Sir Richard Cartwright. Three men are dining In a club. Opposite them is a well known statesman, engaged in reading a book. He was within a few pages of tho end and every few minutes he glanced nervously at the clock as though pressed fqr time. One of the three men watching him explained that he was the faniou.s minister of the crown, and that he was due at the House in a few minutes to Sir Richard had i-.'^ad everything of Conan Doyle, and he Is credited with knowing almost every work of Henty, Indeed, right to the last there was a peculiar boyish cast to his mind- mentally he nerer seemed to have passed hla prime. This, too, was noticeable in another respect in his famous moments of irritation, when, as well known, ho would blurt out some truth that others scarc-aly dared whisper. And once thej truth was out, people found It sim-plilled matters exceedingly. Then occasionally he would show another kind of irritation. It was in \ bis own house one d�y. when a visitor was present, that Sir lilchard was interrupted by a cr.ish in the hall. A passing servant had dropped a plate with a tremendous crash which quite threw Sir Rich.ird olT the thread of his argument. The old gentleman .was furiously angry. "Fools, fools," he said, "I've been surrounded by them all my life.; Fools, they've blighted my career," | and in a inomijni the anger was all; 1 over and as the visitor passeinue South ;
