An- other illustration of the vast ness of j the harvest operations is" to be found in the number of laborers employed. It was estimated the other day that laborers would be needed.

These figures appeal to the imagination, aad help one to understand that Western Canada is becoming more and more the bread-basket of the Empire. CORNWALL'S GOOD SCHEME J. K. Cornwall, M.P.P., is going about it in the right way to get peo- ple interested in his Peace River district, newspaper and magazine The divers are great peQplo to fig- ure in public life. Hon. Frank Oliver is Minister of the Interior, Joseph Oliver is mayor of Toronto, John Oliver is leader of the. Liberal op- position in British Columbia, Wm. Oliver is an alderman in bridge. and Leth- country, the One hundred i writers en- r Side thiisiastic over what they see of that great country, will do much toward j rending settlers there. Mr. Corn- wall has great faith in a great coun- try and is not ashamed of it. The way to persuade people of the value of a place is to take them to it. They can see for themselves that it is good. Mr. Cornwall deserves get the million people he says ought to be there. Car of Ontario Cheese BORDEN'S BAD START Conservative to rumor, is R. L- Borden, the according 'soon to be deposed from fcon, is starting his campaign "party by the use of very poor tics.' At Halifax on Thursday started oE Ms first important speech, '.'in what is to be a grand tour 01 with an' eye to 'life into his party, by statement that will be ;all except perhaps Borden's most blindly partizan 'towers. In speaking, of the future of Can- ada-he said, "Shall Ve, as Mr. Gold- win Smith desires and predicts, be- come a part of the great American j Republic, or shall we follow the as-j pirations of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who j believes that Canada will sever her connection with the British Empire as a ripe apple drops from a tree, or shall we follow the ideal of Sir John A. Macdonald, who foresaw and pre- dicted a cordial and healthy alliance with the in which Canada would become a powerful na- owning allegiance to the Brit- isii sovereign and flag, etc., etc. Fortunately, for Mr. Borden he did not attempt'to prove his statements. He would have to search diligently and use a great deal of imagination and misconstruction to make good Jus statement regarding the ideal of 'Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Of all the statesmen Canada has had there has been none more loyal to the contin- uance of the existing or closer' re- lationship of Canada to the British Crown and Empire. There is no man not even excepting Mr. Iiorden himself, who has proved truer to, British connection, traditions and ideals. There is no man prouder of his British citizenship and of the freedom and privilege that accom- panyv it. Sir Wilfrid Laurier has done more in his time to strengthen ties binding Canada to the Moth- er Country than any other man in Canada, not even being surpassed by oW chieftain --with the mention of whose name Mr. Bo'rden would re- mind his party of-their ancient de- parted greatness. If Sir Wilfrid Laurier has such an aspiration as Mr. Borden says, he has never given any evidence of it, or expression to it. If; Mr. Borden studies the words and actions Of Sir Wilfrid Laurier he will see there no sign of any such aspirations, but rather an aspiration to make Can- ada the greatest nation in the Em- pire, to make it the centre of influ- ence in the greatest empire the world has ever known, to maintain the British Empire in its entirety, and uphold to the last the British crown, flag and constitution. "THE PITTSBURG OF CANADA" We are fast reaching the point where Lethbridge can prove its title to rank as the "Pittsburg of Can- ada." About this city new mines, equipped in the .most improved fash- posi 1C- i sight of the city to-day are out of he! biggest mines i i a da, and in a few years the i be increased. The 1CW j the Diamond City the other day re- a 1 minds us that that mine will soon be bv producing a thousand tons a day to supply the requirements of ihe peo- fol-' ?le on tlie .Prairie- from it is the Collieries, then nearer the city are No. 6 and No. 3 shafts of the A. R. I. Co. About us, also, we have numerous small mines, capable of turning out in the aggre- gate j, considerable 'amount of coal. The pay-roll of these mines is ex- tensive, and a great deal of the mon- ey comes to the Lethbridge mer- chants directly or indirectly. As a city and a district we can greet with enthusiasm, celebrations such as that held at Diamond City. Thev mean much to us. THE LAKE HE WAS ON From the Wiarton Canadian. A reader sends us the following, which appeared in a newspaper twen- ty, years ago "An ignorant, conceited fellow got aboard a steamer on Lake Huron. Af- ter standing on deck awhile among the crowd and seeing the captain ap- proach, he inquired 'W.hat is the name of this lake 'The Lake Hur- on.' 'Yes, replied the man. But the captain going no further, the stranger said 'Well, what is the name of the lake 'The Lake answered the captain. 'I want to know what lake I'm on. What's its name 'Well, said 'the "captain, name of the lake you're on is the Lake Huron. Does that satisfy .you The crowd were now smiling quite audibly, and the man walked on, -gin utter ing low to himself: 4 'The lake I'm .on is the lake I'm on. That's a polite captain, that is.' and Eggs on track The Bentley Co. ltd. fertile iRdlftiii Ffcflfle Ji lETMHIBGE We'll Be In Our new building opposite the Herald Office next week When You Call You will see a display of Household Effects, with prices ta The Golden West Furniture Store London, Oct. following is the latest betting on Cambridgeshire distance one mile and 220 yards, to be run-: on .Wednesday, October 27: 9 Arranmore; 9 Sir Maxtin; 10 MTIS- 20 Primer; 33 Ballo.

The exposition may be a -good thing, but Alberta can, just at present, spend a quarter of a million dollars to better advantage in providing the people with roads and bridges and other necessary improvements. No doubt if the, exposition is held Al- berta will have an exhibit worthy of the province, but it will, not cost a quarter of a million or a quarter of that amount to erect a creditable building and place in it an exhibit that will convince every person who looks upon it that Alberta is the banner province of the Dominion. The Faithful Companions of Jesus will hold their' annual sale of work on Thursday 28th, Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of October, and ask their friends' kindly to patronize this smail undertaking, the ceeds of t Which are destined to start a building fund for the erection of a much needed new convent.

WHAT THE HARVEST MEANS Dr. Cook has been given the free- dom of New York. If Peary" gets the same privilege and they happen to be in the city together there will be a reat scrap, with no policy to inter- fere., Plain figures sometimes fail to con- ,vey to the imagination -their full meaning. When, for instance, we read -estimates of the harvest in West- ern Canada ranging from -lo bushels, we do not readily grasp what that bulk means. A western paper has been helping its readers to understand what a crop of this mass signifies by giving s excellent concrete examples. When the vast wheat belt extending from the Eastern boundaries of Manitoba to the foot of the dis- j tancc of over miles by 300 wide of its grain, it will take a train of frcigh-. cars five hundred miles long to move the surplus'stock is to say, the train would reach from Brandon to. Fort William. Or, to put it in another way, it .would take 85.000 cars or trains of 35 cars to move thft crop. A Canadian box-car, it should be said, is 40, feet long. To man these trains means the employ- ment! of men, giving each train an engineer, a fireman, a conductor, and two brakemen. The coal con- sumed by these trains would amount to tons, or 350 tons an hour. One British newspaper proprietor after another has admitted., that he cannot the reports their cor- respondents send in about Canada, and so adopt the right course of com- ing out to see for themselves. The expression of tfle Queen of Sheba is their unanimous opinion of the coun- try when they sec it. The newly appointed American am- bassador to China loses his job be- fore he leaves his own country, while NICKNAMING STATESMAN (Toronto Star.) Some days ago we "remarked upon the fact that some o'f the Conserva- tive journals were referring to the Canadian State as Hon. Box-Car Murphy, and to-the Cana- dian Minister of Labor as Hon. Ini- tials King. From this we -inferred that the damps and chills of opposi- tion were having an -effect on the once staid and ceremonious Tory mind. This leads the Brockville Times to say The Star seems to be powerful testy and peevish, considering the fact that no paper in Ontario de- lights more than the Toronto Star in jesting familiarly with its prominent political opponents, and tossing a few flowers of speech at them in a jocular rupod. We must beg of the Times'not to say that we were testy and peevish. It is not in us to be so. We referred to the present} state of the Tory mind without wishing to wound. It seemed odd to us that nick-naming of Min- isters of the Crown should be indulg- ed in by the journals of the party that has always or usually professed a reverence of rank and station, dig- nity and authority, title and office. A Liberal or Radical journal could do that sort of thing as a matter of. course. We can do it. But the Brockville Times shouldn't. Mail and Empire, shouldn't. The Past Ages would be shocked, ghosts would walk and cemeteries be agitated, if journals that are not only loyalist, but royalist, that still mourn the fate of Charles and secretly -deplore I the success of the Cromwellian rab- ble, that still regret the Reform bill an-d are now aghast at the Lloyd- George budget, begin to adopt that easy familiarity with the names and persons of his Majesty's advisers that a people's paper like The Star does not hesitate to affect. We can do it just as naturally as a .bird sings. But in the name of conscieace. who. is' to withstand the tendencies of the age, who is to maintain 'deference to those placed in authority over us, if the Brockville Times and the Mail and Empire begin speaking of a Min- ister of the Crown as Hon. Box-Car Murphy Not that we care, Mr. Murphy cares, not that Mr. King cares, but merely because we see the tendencies of the present day gaining a hold in unexpected places, we ven- tured to call attention to the using of nick-names. WE'VE TOLD YOU A good many things about our Fruit Lands on the Arrow Lakes in this space during the past year. We have tried to tell you that there's profit and pleasure in owning a fruit farm.
