A Musical Festival THE CULTIVATION and encour- agement of the gentler arts are, in their tendency towards in- tellectual refinement, worthy of at- tention. We have passed ihe age when such studies were considered ficjcnt, the d.esire for cultivation should be taspt up. To do this there is no better plan than to establish an annual Musica Festival in this city. Lethbridge, in this respect, should be 'the headriuart effeminate, and ilie world tins corn-alters for Southern Alberta. Edmonton ro look with pride on ihoy; who have has its festival, and the surrounding distinguished themselves in these branches. They arc considered bene- factors in that tfvay have opened new vistas of pleasure and delight, and, by so doing, 'they have helped great- ly in relieving the monotony of hu- man existence. It is not only 'aspetiieiit that super- lative merit in these direeiions should be appraised, but, tliat the" popular taste should be educated to the pro- towns, such as Raymond and Card ston, have given us a lead. That these fixtures are popular institu- tions is abundantly evident. There is no lack of good, if not of exceptional material, in this city, and we have amongst us n number of well- riiia lifted professors, who would, feel sure, be willing and glad to give tbeir assistants. Music brings pleas- ure to the home, it adds to its at- per appreciation .of what is lofty in! traction, and greatly to its -beautify its ideal.

There Is noth- ing l keeping the public interested in wholesome pursuits, and we trust that the suggestion we throw out will conic to n practical head. Politics and the Civil Servant THE PRACTICE of the interfer- ence of government officials In politics Is one that Is to be de- precated. That certain persons 'liav-0 BO transgressed, is twfitont from a. cans In example at Calgary. The mere fact, of an jndivldiini In govern- ment cmivloy showing an active spirit of jwliticfll partisanship conveys tiro idea that ho owes his position to in- fluence, favoritism, or lo a factor of a similar complexion, and not to mer- it, it should b-5.

Flopped on Reciprocity (Simcoe Reformer.) What is the use of talking about Laurier and Fielding and Pat'arson having made a mistake? They had a proposal offered them.

The Journal saw nothing wrong with Mr. Field- ing's political acumen at that time. It considered the agreement a fine bar- gain, a great accomplishment for Ca- nada. A great many others thought so at that time, continued to'think so. ami will continue so to think. The question for the tliLure is the discovering of the motive and com lulling cause or the "flop" made bj the Journal, and t so many tens ol thousands of others. Clifford, My Lord!

The Blind Vote" ;V (Montreal Witness.) ;-A man came into our office the oth- er day and said that he had just read reciprocity agreement, and if n-e liad dgne so -before voting lie would have voted for it. He had supposed from the paper that Ire had been read- ing .that tiro agreement-committed us to general reciprocity with the United S'tntes .in manufactures as well as th-e thing? that were really in it, and that It ipeant annexation to j.hat country. Another man, ti Canadian, visiting Canada, said that his mind had been made up in favor of reciproc- ivy by reading tlva arguments against It. H nothing more relevant than coultl -be nrgeil -against it, it was surely a good thing for The-same result had not Dillowud with many intelligent people he had met. He had since got the agreement self and read it, and he was convinc- ed tlmt not. one of Hie many, who ind voted-against it with whom h liad conversed, had any knowledge of it. yThay hod siven him such rea- sons for opposing it as thai the Yan tees would take away uiir wheat.
