The Land Titles Office OUR ESTEEMED morning con- temporary is much worried about the location of a land titles, office in this city, and in its efforts to make party capital, it pro- ceeds to draw comparisons. It relates with glee the speedy preparation for the construction of the post office, and attempt to lead the public to believe Lethbridge 'would never have had a post ollice had it not. been for the generous government at Ottawa. It must not forget that the site for the office was benight by a Liberal government and that at the session of 1011 there was a big appropriation in the estimates for the construction of the building, mi appropriation the Conservative opposition did not allow to pass. The Tories L-iiiiu io pOVver i ami almost a year passed before the contract was let for the Thsre is not much to flap ilie wings about there. As for a land titles office, the Her- ald has always maintained there was urgent need for one here and it still holds that view as strongly as ever, and has so expressed itself on many occasions. The province of Alberta has adhered to the centralization sys- tem and there are Conservatives who believe in that system. The Herald favors an office in every judicial dis- trict and has so argued for some time past. The government may make a change, in fact, we are inclined to pre- dict that n land titles office will be housed and operating in Lethbridge before the post oilice IE completed.

He openly applauded an anti-British speech In the Reichsta's during the Moroccan crisis, anil toolc no pains .10 conceal the fact that ihe Kaiser's Pacific pol- icy is not to his liking.

Few who remember the Jameson Raid and the Kaiser's rongnitulatcry telegram !n Kruger at th'at time would have sup- posed it possible that within two de- cades the man who ?o vecklessly gave Britain offence would be the greatest Influence for peace on the European continent. The responsibility of pow- er and the maturing influence of ngc have wrrked a great transformation in ihe somewhat bumptious and self- willed young prince who came to the throne of Germany a. quarter of a century ago.
