Cranbrook Herald:-What is to lie done with' the strike question at Fernie? . It is not a lotal uestijn, but one that affects hundreds of men outiAde of the local mine strikers. Not only does it afl'cct the working men but it has a most ue-pressing influence on business over a vast territory, t'ndcr conditions like this there should be some remedy. Suppose that the strike was sim,jly the result of a petty idea on ti.e The now council must be niMie to "hit the trail" for better streets andmore granolithic walks. Then let us get rid of our present municipal buildings and put up a city hall that will accommodate all our officials decently. I.g. iPolitioal castolls and church hypro-crites always seek a new land, where Ibey can start life over again. Alberta wants to watch out lor U>�a. We don't want any of the London ballot box atufiers or bribers or the Foster-Fowler-Pope tj-pe ot fren-sied financiers to move out here und try to reform, because most likely instead �f trj-ing to reform themselves, they would attempt to in -troduce^itiieir nefarious practices iiito our pot.tical and business life. Give the political sinners a wide berth. Punish them by keeping them in eold storage imtil they are real pen-itenti and then let them loose, but iwt out of sight. Watch them close-Ijr. There are the church sinners too The fellow down eflist, who under the cloak 'Of church membership has heon able to hoodwink i)cople. W.i know of one such man, who iws tumeii up in Alberta.

Mr. Fairfleld drew attention to a paragraph in the Sclentiftc, which stated that farmers in Wc!d and Larimer Counties, Colorado had arranged to feed their quota of one million lambs. They are paying 53 to 9 well, when iie comes to sell this stock in February or March. The time is coming, Mr. Fairfield says, when the irrigation farmer will find it.pays to raise hay only ami feed stock, either on his own farm or sell the hay to the atocK-man. OEOROE M. HATCH * C. R.

That concession was not made but an agroemont was decided upon which gave the ffro-nmn $3.25 per day working a twelve hour shift. Some agitation was made looking to the involving of the whole worU' ing force for an advance in pay, though who the agitators were or what was demanded by them could not be learned.
