And most nat- AiralU we baud out the advice that The farmers should keep.more cows, more heiis, and endeavor to sup- fly tbe demand. They ought to be .bio to meet home consumption any- we say. But is tbe onus for this state of to bs put altogether on. the f larmer' Are not we of the city very 'touch io blame that the farmers of Alberta do not make enough "Tjutter or raise enough eggs for our use? It seems as If the farmer had enough, worries without trying to un- load on him the blame for a state of which we ourselves should ghoul AVhat have the people of Letbbridge done to aid the farmers in making Southern Alberta the source of our LethbridgLe food, supply in ihe matter of small produce? AVhere is our local market "where" ihs farmer may sell his pro- duce in open: competition? Where is our. cold storage plant where he may store, produce.. when the market is glutted? Have people of this city ever doue a single thing to aid the farmer to seil his butter aud eggs and vegetables at a fair rute all the year round? What farmer is going to raise eggs and make butter when he knows that in summer when he has these necessities in the price will occupy a cellar position. It is not the farmer who is to blame; It rests with the consumers as much aa with the producer Io see to it that every facility is given the fann- er in' marketing his produce. Then we will" benefit and the farmer will- benefit, and we will not ring the chan- ges on the old high-cost-of-living song so often that monotonous. A a PostofSce THE CONTRACT has been Jet for a splendid new post- office at Lethbridge, at E. M. -Mscdonald, M.P., in the Dominion election last year tried to intimidate the electors of that constituency, threatening that if they did not elect a Lib- eral they would not get a new postoffioe. they elected a Uberal. and a Conservative gwf- ernment has given them a new postoffice just the same. The Bor- government is not petty; it is. Thomas Times. The Times is right and it is wrong. -Liberal government did make an Vmppropriation for a postoffice building here, and the site was acquired beforo it went out of power. It is true the Conservative government did not pun- ish the city, because it was represent- ed by a 'Liberal.' A city of twelve thousand deserves a postoffice. no matter of what political stripe its re- presentative. However, the Conservative party is not free from the taint the Times would leave with the late Liberal gov- ernment. The Liberals appropriated money for a postofflce at -Macleod, where, auch a building is badly need- ed. The constituency was represented by a Conservative. At this last ses- sion Conservatives dropped the vote. Why? Was it because Macleod didn't need a, postoffice, or because it was now represented by a Liberal? Still Wielding the THE CONSERVATIVE press la criticise the Otta- wa government for its ruthless Jtise of the axe in order to place friends in political Jobs held by well Mfied men who happen to have teen appointed by the late Liberal Win. Ireland, an old time newspaper Unan, held the position of customs [collector '-Sound until a short rtlme ago. Mr. Ireland is now a man (Upwards-? of sixty, to whom the loss tit his means of'livelihood is a serious smatter. and it is claimed by his that the charge against him 'offensive partisanship is absolutely iJTbaselefts. The Ori.Ha Packet, a con- tsistently Conservative piper, says any .Mr. Ireland was en- stltled to a'piiolic investigation, before was taken. The North Star declares- that, Mr. James Arthurs, M. [P.; who ia responsible for the dismis- sal is 'too small and insignificant to a riding like Parry Sou-id.1 We know nothing about that, but to any right thinking person this busi- ness of dlsinlBsing government omc- jaia on petty charge must appear contemptiblo and unworthy of any man big enough to na honored with a seat )u parliament." So scandalously haa the political axo Just fallen in Kamloops that Lib- erals and alike are openly expressing their disgust. .The this time is W. C. Cowoll, Do- minion Itmd agent at Kamloops. Ac- cording to the Kamloops Inland 'Sen- tinel (Lib.) the dismissal Mr. Cow- oil, while deprecated by the local organization, has been ardently desired by the local member in the provincial legifilature, J. P. Shaw. Mr. Co well, knowing that an was being made to bring about hia dismissal, asked the head of his de- partment to afford him an opportun- ity of defending himself in any inves- tigation of charges that might be made. This was promised, although, if there was any investigation, the promise was not carried out. On the contrary, Mr. Cowoll waa summarily dismissed, not even being accorded the courtesy of a month's notice. The fact that as recently as three months ago Mr. Cowell >vaa promised an in- crease of salary seems to show that his services were appreciated by thi department at Ottawa. The Kamloops Standard, Conserva- tive, commenting upon the piece of "We understand that C. Cowell, chief of the local Dominion Land ag- ency, has been reTTeved of. his posi- tion hero. Irrespective of politics, Mr., Cowell hna been a faithful serv- ant to the government, and Conserva- tives and Liberals alike are loud hi their denunciation of this action of the 'department. There has never hecii a better or more capable official and ICamloopij generally will deeply regret to see him leave his office here." The Conservatives arc certainly re- forming the civil service, but in a manner that will bring down tho wrath pf the fair minded public at the first opportunity. OUR POINT QF.MIEW 1C Hon.
