Apart from the Ageac-ra! interest jivoused, the plan is an opportunity for every c'iii- >y.en of Lethbridge to come Eonvaril small financial help by purchas- tickets, in clearing away the deb! ion the huge auditorium erected to jfulfil a need which the ocr-ssion de- I'iman.led. Now is the time for every- who values the importance of the: exposition to his city to come for-j r'Avard, and take his and her share in towards its success. j The burden rind heat of the day in] Hireparing for the Congress have been, j so far, left to the comparatively H will therefore be an act of grace on the part of eae-ii to show his appreciation for These labors by coming forward voluntarily in aiding towards the financial necessities. The Congress should have, and no doubt has, its. appeal to one and all. a duty, therefore, rests with them to further, as fiir as each one individually can, the efforts of others. The Terpsifete should be. what it is intended to he. a crowning success and everything to make it so sliGii! be not neglected. In working for Ms or her particular choice of Congress Queen, the fact should uot be over- looked that, every display of interest and activity means doing one's part in a great boost for Libelling the R.N.W.M.P. rpHE STA-XDAIID gives it .as.its opinion that the Royal Mounted Police has outlived its and that the old siiirit is1 gone. The only ground on "which it -appears to have based its-conclusion that crime has been lately much in increase in the west. The accusation is not fair to a force, against which no par Lieu-Jar-instance- eau be named it has in any way departed ifroin the lines in which it lias come ito fie trfKliUonrUly regarded. The name of the Mounted Police Stands tfulay much as it ever did. If ,'crime has increased, it is not-tin-ouch (the fault or want of vigilance of the 'corps, -but through tho fact that the 'country has become more densely 'populated. With the increase of population miusf. necessarily come an iincreas-e of crime, and that it baa not jtvxccejded its ratio is a tribute to the 'H. N: W. M. P. Ko far -as physique and morale are concerned the force is as it always i-was. The recent arrests and punish- ments of criminals for crimes of. hi seme cases, long standing, show that vigilance--which-hos ever charac- terized the corps is still unabated. Units, or a mere handful, in large territories inhabited b3" thousands, they still preserve lav; and order by the magic of their name. H is true there has been some diffi- culty in obtaining recruits for the force, but so far as remuneration Is concerned money has a less value in these days than years ago. But this fact does not make any difference in the material, but rather, if anything, brings in men who value the service more than, the pay. The criticism accorded a force syn- onymous with all that is best in the history of the west shows bad taste on the part of the Regiua journal. The C.P.R.

It is not unfair to add. that to those who had seen "Suspender Jack" ges- ticulating in the hotel grinning groups of delegates and traveling salesmen, the then unknown man in the cowboy makeup was regarded as something of a joke. When he stood upon the platform the delegates could see, in pantomine, that the cowboy was disputing the right of Woodruff to speak, and that lie proposed to make a speech him- self.
