IETHBRIBGE ALBERTA UNION OF MUNICIPAL- ITIES, WELCOME Today and tomorrow the city is ai house to the mayors and al- dermen as well as civic officials oi other towns and cities of Alberta. They are most 'heartily welcome and the general wish is that'they will have such an enjoyable and profit- able time that they will want to come again, as soon -as possible. This convention of the Union of Alberta (Municipalities promises to be a very important one. The Albeeta government it is understood has- in the rough a bill to provide a uniform system o'f government for municipali- ties of the province and are waiting for the advice of the Alberta Union on matters of detail b afore the bill is completed, ready for presentation to the Legislature. The executive com- mittee of the Union recognize the im of this convention" because of this and 'have prepared the pro gramme so as to provide the requir ed advice and discussion on the im pbrtant matters to be considered. The convention therefore will be decided interesting and very Important. Lethbridge as a municipality has not a great deal to show the visiting irmiticipal -authorities in the way o improved methods of municipal go .vemrnent hut-it has a good deal to "show in .the way of municipal accom- plishments. No'doubt many a dele- -gate will get pointers 01 on feyw to improve streets with, boulevards, on the value and importance of planting trees in abundance, on TIOW to go about-putt- ing in a real up-to-date, fully equipp- ed electric power and light plant, on municipal ownership of coal mines on the proper equipment of a fire department 'and many other points of excellence that this city as a dis- possesses from a municipal point. In turn it is fully expected that .thi local municipal authorities discussion with the visiting author- ities may get pointers on city hall goveminent by a commis- sion, street numbering, fire alarm Sy terns, good paving materials and me- thods, assessments (and assessors) and a few other problems that this city has not yet worked entire satisfaction. Tt' is Confidently expected that the visiting municipal men seeing the wonderful prosperity .of this citv .compared perhaps with their should make a dead set-on the trade !thc support the great Hans gives the that will be opened up by the new railroads which will start operation in a few w.-eks. The territory right- fully belongs to Lefchbridge but if the other fellows can give better goods better prices anci better accommoda- tion, they will, get the business.

It is the confident of the people of Lethbridge that th- members of the convention so impressed with will be present and The Pittsburg-Detroit race is Nip and Tuck with just a little bit ahead.

Professor Srancesco Ferrer, the Spanish editor and convicted revolutionist, was shot to-day at the fortress 01 Mont Juich. where he had been confined since con- demnation by court-martial. He fac- ed the firing squad without flinching, fell dead at the first volley. Fer- rer, except for momentary expression of emotion, immediately preceding; his death, retained his composure to the last. His attorney, M. Malceran, who had defended the prisoner, had secured permission for a brief talk with the revolutionist before the lat- ter was-led to the :ditch. where he was'to die. To his attorney Ferrer spoke feelingly of the work for which he was sacrificed, and of the future Of his daughter, whose, brave attempt to save his life touched the father more deeply than any other incident of his trial and conviction, On Ferrer's arrest, his family was left dependent upon his x daughter, who at once secured employment in a biscuit factory. The daughter made a personal appeal to King 'Alfonso to spare her father's life. When, these facts were related'.by Malceran, Fer- j ri-r broke down. It was but a pass- i ing emotion, and presently the un- daunted revolutionist was himself again. Ferrer decline to receive the Right Rev.
