Lessons From the Census NOT TO RKLY on fancy, but on fact, must be. brought home lo our Western cities as a re- suit of ihe Boosting alone is not sufficient, wiihoir; ibe reality. H does not do to rely too much on the importance of numbers. Figures, no doubt, count, luit there are far more Important assets in communities which should be retted on for reasons of at- tracting population, and assuming im- portance. When the dream is rudely broken, as at present by the govern- ment enumerators, cities that have made it a boost that th'eir population runs into so many cannot help feeling somewhat foolish. They ire ulaced in the same position as the proverbial jackdaw with the pea- cock's feathers. To apeak the truth .delusion, al- though it may appear harmless, does. pay. Independently of causing disappointment, Ii causes the strang- er to look doubtfully on real benefits locally claimed.- Already ihe people or' Eastern Cauadii are remarking that are boastful. This i sad position, which, after )ue verdict of the census, we Westerners have to submit to ia silence. We nave had a rude awakening, but wi'il ho doubt derive great benefits from the experience. We shall have learned 10 paly on the developing of actualities as a mode of attraction and expansion, instead of on what our wishes somebott' lead us to believe in. .Our imaginations have had a rebuff but let not this deter us from believ- ing in ourselves, not Vainly, but in earnest. j Whateiyr attractions we have in com- mand to add (o our numbers, let us make :the most of them. Let .us not grasp at shadows, but at substances, and maing the most of these we shall earn the respect and confidence, not not only o (those who have come to reside with us, hut also of the strang- er without, our gates. The Government 'Congress rTU-JAT the government-rot the pro- J[ vince fully realizes, the value..of the money in the right way, and for a highly practical purpose, is shown by the grant of as a guarantee for bringing the Dry Farming Congress to Leth- bri-dge. N'o aspersion can at any lime be passed on it that it is not a legislature for the welfare of all. It has vindi- cated Ms position as n sane and prac- tical body. In doing good to tlie city it is doins good to the agricultural 'community around. It has fully estim- ated th-a importance of the Dry Farm- ing Congress TO the province as a- whole. That is an attitude whereby it must, earn the of all men. When a government grasps the im- portance and practical utility of ilrj !vetiiie of a congress nue the one at Colorado Springs, il is deserving of every confidence, nor can it be accus- ed of not having a serious nnd proper regard to the -expenditure of public monies. Irrespective of the grant, the gov- ernment has. in the person of Hon. Duncan Marshall, used influences of a personal nature in bringing the oV sjres of the community 10 a head. This; at.a time, -as Mr. Shepherd ex- pressed it at North Lethbridge, when his services could have teon used in furthering the interests oi the gov- ernment candidates in the campaigns now-in progress. The time which might have been spent for political advantage has been iraed in further- ing, the welfar-e of the .province. The attitude of the government, and ona oi Us "personnel, in the present oc- casion, realized by the pub- lic. By the avprestuuu of their ap- proval they show tlreir contempt of 'Hie mud-slinging tactics of a cer- tain portion of' ihe opposition. As- persions cast-with nothing to Justify them, and purely the results of the same feelings which cause a bull to become frantic over a red rug. It is. a; sorry thing for any country if it is .unfortunate enough to have men who cannot see good in anything. It Ms not; that these men cannot see, but" that they will noi see. They iiav'ft resolutely turned their faces to m-all, and it. would be well for the country and for the province that they should be allowed to remain in that 'position._ _____ Let praise be given where it is ite- rved, no matter by what party, pr by what persons, public benefits are OUR POINT OF VIEW Vote Tor Shepherd!
