A .Wonderful Tribute FOLLOWING the newspaper .ac- counts of Sir Wilfrid Lmirier'3 tour through Ontario oih? is led 'to the opiuion that the old Liberal chieftain is more beloved a'nd wor- shipped in opposition than in power, 'possibly the Ontario people are realis- 'ing the error they made last year and they are atoning for it by Hocking to ilie Liberal lender's side and letting him know that they are again with him heart and soul. One thing is clear, and that is that Sir Wilfrid is receiving greater demonstrations of regard than he ever had during the time he was in power. In the days lie was Premier iie was never compelled to address two and three overflow meetings at Peterborough, Chatham, and Woodstock, Sir Wilfrid is cer- tainly being received iu Ontario as he never was before. The tributes are remarkable, coming to a -man out of oflice from a province that went so overwhelmingly against his policy last September. Ontario surely must, be coming to its senses. The Royal Visit LE IS ONE ASPECT of the i royal visit which we should not forget, and that is the oppor- tunity which it affords us to show those who live amongst us from other lands that we are heart and soul Bri- tish people. This is an important 'point which should not be overlooked. .Towards the end-of-a Canada, united in one aim and one sentiment, it is duty which devolves on every true Canadian to bring these stranger's to regard things in the light we have iu with our traditions been accustomed to view them. They are here of their own will, and have by experience and contrast come to value British ideals and in- stitutions in the freedom they pro- claim. Consequently, our example in flie matter of setting an importance the royal visit mast count a great deal. In honoring the Duke and his party we show the measure of our .appreciation, for our institutions, and .in this way bring to those who are new to them their real value. The 'enthusiasm we evidence is bound to have its influence in malting these slraugers feel that we realise what The British constitution stands for to of us. In the way of decora- tion 'rt'-e have scope for this. As to declaring a public holiday. there is much to 'be in favor of merchants' objections, not to this holiday particularly, but to the fre- fluent holitlays declared on special occasions. The regular holiday s are plentiful enough and it. should only be on a very special occasion that the authorities should meet the request for civic holidays. However, the visit of the royal party id of special sig- nificance. Their .Royal Highnesses present the throne of Great Britain, and the throne of Great Britain stands for the greatest civilizing power the world has known. It represents even more than an-individual or individ- uals. K is the visible representation of all the great liberties, civic and re- ligions, which we possess today. It stands for all the blessings of benefi- cent rule which surround us on every hand. Therefore it Is only proper that on tho occasion of the visit of one of the diBtinguisaed members of the Royal family honor should be paid Jiira. and the throne he represents .by declaring a holiday-. That holiday need not necessarily be the entire day. It can be limited to rhe hours during which the program with which the Duke is associated is being carried out. There are, no doubt, cynics who see nothing iu all these things, but these ore found everywhere. They are hap- pily in a very small minority, and have failed to grasp the, broad vision. The majority who look on matters apart from an individual aspect will, we have not a doubt, utilise the pres- ent opportunity for an outburst of spontaneous enthusiasm marking an appreciation of our empire ideals. Too Much Abuse IT IS NOT for civic affairs that so many of the members of this yfear's council announce their purpose of retiring. It would he a mistake to have next year's council .made up entirely of inexperienced men. The city needs the service of men of ripe experience in municipal affairs. There is no (jues'-iou that the retire- ment of so many aldermen is due to the abuse and criticism that Uas -been heaped upon th-em. It is the abuse and personal attacks thai disgust them with public life. Criticism fair and candid can always he tahc-n in good pan. Aldermen must, remember, how- ever, that the alms? and personal at- tacks are not general. Much of it comes from a misunderstanding of civic, affairs, too, ICnlightment will follow a serious study of the work of this year's council. It is easy enough to criticise but if is a much more diffi- cult matter to conduct public business. It is only the suspicious individual, who carries away UK- impression that men are in public life for the hone that come to them personally. As a matter of fact, men in our city coun- cils are anxious to do what is right and in the public interest. It is true they do nor always do it, but it is tine to mistaken judgment and not to any deliberate decision to injure the city. Honest difference of opinion is only to expt-i-ted, hut abuse and jHvsonal of a more or less petty char- acter are unfair. They discourage men from going into municipal ser- vice and if persisted in will put our civic affairs in the hands of an inferior let of men. Lethbrirtge wants next year, and it wants all the time, solid, substantial men at its council board. but It cannot expect to get them if the campaign of indiscriminate abuse is continued. On the other hand some of the criticism of this year's council is honesr. It comes from well mean- ing people, but a lot of it is due to a ack of intelligent understanding of municipal affairs. Some of the men who nre the most abused are the least to blame. But th-e mud Is being thrown and a lot of it is sticking be- cause so many prople always believe all they hear. An honest, inquiry wpuld remove many of the impres- sions they have received. are speaking here in a general way of tho attacks ant] criticisms meted out to the council. The Herald has differ- ences of opinion with certain policies of the city council, and umiuestJ ahly lots of citizens differ with the council's conduct in instances, but that is no reason why men should be subjected to abuse and imputations of improper 'motive. Rvery man is entitled to hia opinion, and as long as we admit that, there is hound to be differences of opinion and caiuli- criticisms of tho actions of our serwtntH. Hut, candid criticism and abuse and insinuations aro diffoi abuse and insinuatu j mailers altogether. OUR POINT OF VIEW Ho sure "ml docowte for the Puke, Brush up; the Duke will by hero on Wednesday. The straw volo gives Tuft three states. The real vote may not. bo as Tiiko a" hour off and practice cheering. Let the Duke sco wn moan it. The Ulster agitation seems to have reached iis climax on Covenant Day. Tliero hasn't been a since. Sam Hughes is on the b-riny home- ward bound. Canada will breathe easier with its gallant war lord lit home. Those cheers which areel Sir WH-, frid Laurier at every point he visits in Ontario jar unpleasantly on the nerves of the powers that be at Otta- wa.

Civic service offers opportunity to big men. Sacrifice may be necessary but sacrifice figures largely in every- thing worth while.

There is no sumlito the Her- ald subscription cuutRst, because Dyce is directing it. Good, hard, honest work always gets the reward. Try it this year and Hud out. The farmers who are in need of help in this district had better follow the idea adopted by Manitoba farmers, in the same circumstances, of paying Uio HUPS of men la jail and taking them out to do harvest, work. From the days "Abdul the damn- ed" until the present there have been periodic war scares in tho Balkans and there hasn't been a real war yet. Lethbrldge needs her best men at the council board. Civic preferment is not for the man with a grudge or personal ends to seek. Mayoralty opportunity is knocking oiidly at the door of business men who have made a success of their own business. The call is to the big men. By watching the angle .at which the bow is made to the Duke one will be There Is no city in the west which for population Is as far advanced in municipal utilities as Lethbridge. Cer- tainly Calgary was three times as large before it had what we have now. It would be doing the city a good turn, to make a iwilt in and conserve resources by a rigid policy of retrench inent. Let the population grow up to 'what we now have. In attacking the mayor it would be as well to be specific and point out the particular Instances In which he has made mistakes. Nearly every city in the west has experienced a comparatively quiet year, and "when the people are dissatisfied with the development made there is a ten- dency to unjustly criticise the' muni- cipal authorities. Echo Answers (Montreal Herald) Mr. Marechal is slated for the Cab- inet if, as is expected, 'Mr. Jlpnk steps out. To be quite candid, Mr, Mar- is about the only Quebec Con- servative whose past record would be consistent with tailing office .just now. But where will he be elected? A Poser (Hamilton fterald.')

One wonders 'what Australia and India would have to say to that. In Jail For Telling Truth (Pincher Creek Echo) A Toronto clergyman paid a visit to one of the theatres there, and then went home and published a bulletin describing' exactly what he saw and heard. Thereupon 'the authorities promptly soaked him for publishing obscene literature. The reverend gen- tleman Is now doubtless on a still imnt for the fellow who declared that ''it--pays to tell the Dry Farming (Xe'w York Sim) Canada has invited most of the na- tions to take part next month in the seventh international Dry Farming Congress at Lethbridge, Alberta. That province is raising good crops on some of its semi-arid areas. A num- ber of European countries are much interested iii dry farming, for they have large regions at home or in their colonies where 'farming is hazardous because the water supply is uncer- tain. Dry farming is as old as Babylonian civilization, btit' the world forgot this helpful and practical just as it forgot other 'discoveries by the an- cients. Our leading'geographers de- nied that there were dwarf tribes In Africa when Du Chailiu rediscovered them, but Herodotus and his contem- poraries knew they were there. When Mr. of Kansas, wrote his "Soil" Culture" a few years ago he made a sensation, though the essence of his theory and practice were known before the Christian era, A quarter of a century ago many farmers moved into western Kansas and a series of good years made them prosperous. Then a series OL ilry years ruined the farmers and they were forced to leave the country. That same district is today being re- j claimed by dry fanning. The plan that Campbell developed was to plow deep so that the rainfall would sink to the subsoil; to keep the plowed surface mellow by cultivation, so that this good tilth would prevent i the moisture from coming to the sur- face and to let the land lie fallow one year and plant the next, and thus give two years of rafufall to nurture one crop.

MONCY TO INSURANCES OF ALL KINDS NEGOTIATED WITH RELIABLE INSURANCE 6pp. Alexandra Hotel Phone crops In the "country ore now raised in New Mexico and other semi-arid regions by dry farming. As a rule crops should have twenty inches of rain. In parts of our coun- try which have an average of twelve inches of precipitation paying biennial crops are now grown toy conserving the rainfall of two years. It was argued that farmers who raise crops only every other year need more land; this is the reason why in dry- farming districts settlers arc now permitted to take up homesteads of 320 instead of 160 acres. As onr country will some day need more food than it can possibly pro- duce it is gratifying to know that ir- rigation and dry farming will at least add enormously to our productive ca- pacity when they shall have been de- veloped to their utmost. But the problems of dry farming I are not yet all solved. The results I sometimes fall to meet expectations. The experience and the views of all nations interested in this rediscovered process of tillage are needed: so it happens that these international con- ferences are largely attended and their results are encouraging and helpful.

An illustration of the general respect in which1 he is held in the wes't was afforded by his selection in 1907 to be chancellor of the new Uni- versity of Saskatchewan, a position in which he has been able to render distinguished service to thai institu- tion.

He was mayor of Freilerlcton from 1874 to and represented York in the pro- vlnclal legislature from 1883 uritil in the Conservative interest, During that, period he acted as leader of the provincial opposition. His fatter, the late Charles P. W. Wet- more, was clerk of the legislative as- sembly, while his mother was a daughter of Hhc late Colonel Richard Ketchum, son of a United Empire Loyalist.
