Save the Trees THE BOARD OF TRADE is tak- ing the right action in endeavor- ing to learn what is tbe disease attacking the trees of the city this year, and what is the remedy. It is a practical matter, and oue -which can- not be allowed to go longer than absolutely necessary without action. Lethbridge is known by its trees. No other city in the west on the bald has so many well grown trees, and for that reason there is no other ciiy which holds quite the same place as- a residential city. Its trees are worth thousands of dollars, and everything possible should be done to protect them. Something ouebt to be done to make the citizens more interested in the subject or" trees titan they are now. A great many people simply accept them. They never think of the trouble experienced in making Lethbridge the city beautiful which U is at present. This is a work for ihe Board of Trade, or for die Horti- cultural Society, if there is one. It is a subject worthy the col'.sideratioa of any citizen. So, when the Board of Trade makes the report ou the dis- ease and remedy, it should make it public, and at the same time say a few 'words about ths care of trees in general. The labor expended in this direction will be returned a thousand fold. Something to Consider GIFT of seeing ourselves as others see us is not given to many of us. Too often the re- flected image is colored with the fancy which our inherent egotism is wont to paint it, and our point of vfew is seriously discounted 'when it comes to a' matter of general opinionl Therefore, when it happens that the estimate with which we have been ac- customed to view the city we dwell in is corroborated by an unbiassed outsider, we have some reason for feeling complimented In that we have not been guilty of an inordinate im- Our civic pride does not suffer and we come to regard it as somewhat in the nature of a cardinal virtue. In. our issue of yesterday there ap- peared an interesting interview with W. P. Bull, K.C., a much travelled and an observant man. "Praise from Sir Hubert Stanley is praise and In considering Mr, Bull's "capacity for passing judgment we may well feel satisfied that we have not been labor- ing under any illusions in the picture of Lethbridge we have been, accustom- ed to dra'w for ourselves. Our pro- gressiveness and enterprise have caught the eye of a man who baa seen many cities and towns, and the judgment passed has been favorable. There is one point in Mr, Bull's diagnosis of the present industries of the city which should not be lost sight of; that is that they are established along lines which have taken advan- tage oC what naturally belongs to the district. To this the brickyard, brew- ery, sash and door factory and the Lethuridge Iron Works bear outstand- ing witness, and forcibly proclaim the necessity of carrying on an Industrial campaign on the lines of least resist- ance. In this conneption the matter of seeking means for utilizing flax straw is simply following in the groove which natural facilities have hollowed out for us. Taking the success of the industries mentioned there is much to encourage the Board of Trade in carrying out efforts to make this In- dustry one of" the features of the city. The fact that binder twine can be manufactured from flax fibre is a fur- ther incentive, for here is a commod- ity which has for its sale an imme- diate market If Mr. Bull in his remarks has serv- ed to emphasize the necessity of keeping our eyes on industries that naturally belong to us, he has doue no small service. OUR POINT OF VIEW The way people are flocking to hear I-aurier is indication that Liberalism is very much alive in Eastern Canada. Now that Aid. is back the mayor promises to forget the days of frenzied finance. One man voted against a natural gas bylaw at Brooks. He must be en- gaged in the toal business. The Masrath fair is on. H is'bound lo be a good one for Magrath Is a farming district worth while talking about. If all: the people who have nice things to' say about.

And still the sun shines. Pro- vidence has heen good to this coun- try in 1912. Cardston continues in the lead as an agricultural community in South- ern Alberta and already has one hun- dred.thousand bushels of wheat in its granaries. And Cardston is a mixed farming community, too; that is the best of the story. While the C. P. R. telegraph offic- ials nre in town it is hoped they have upon them the -necessity of a direct ilne between' Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, Edmonton was for a long time without a direct line.

There have been twenty notices of application for divorce Hied at Otta- wa, and twelve ot" them came from our beautiful capital city of Ontario that once had a high moral reputa- tion. What's gone wrong with Tor- onto? Keeping the Boy Right (Chicago Tribune) Hardly a day passes that the news- papers ot any American city do not publish a report of some crime done by mere boys. This is a. terrible fact which wo must face. Happily the cause is not obscure and the cure is known, by some at least. The cause is the discharge of thou- sands of boys and girls from the dis- cipline and restraint aiid wholesome interests "of the school at 14. la the midst of the critical period of adol- escence. These boys and girls are a large and they are launched into the shop; .the factory; and the street, deprived of friendly surveil- lance and direction when of all per- iods of life they need them most. The cure is the continuation school _r part time school, with an extension of compulsory attendance up to IS, at least. The Illinois Bankers' association ias manifested au enlightened inter- est in vocational education. It should join the Commercial club, which has seen studying the problem, with Sir. Edwin G. Cooley as their expert, in concentrating upon the contlnuatUm school. What Nobody Noticed (Montreal Herald) It has been discovered that the bill authorizing a rebate of Panama Canal tolU to American vessels engaged in the coasting trade contained a great deal more than that. It Is very prob- able the measure will mark the be- ginning of an altogether new era in the shipping business. The measure provides, to begin with, that ships built abroad, but owned by American citizens or corporations, may be ad- mitted to the American registry, may for this Huh' ueck ol the woods thai all Itt well and ilw fiu'incrg are ftmilliiK all day "Ions.

Our stund is precisely what it has always been. donmnd a plebiscite or we tight. Mr. Lior- dttn is pledged to it. Did he not vote for the Monk amendment after Dnumnoi.d mid Avthabnaca? We want a plebiscite, .not a gen- eral election on tho naval issue. If the government goes back on its word and orders a general election without getting tho will of the people on a Cnnmllnn navy, we will light it jsist as hard as 'we fought the Lutirler govern- ment. Let us admit that thore was a eeriaiu ufttllaiion between Nationalism aiid Conservatism in the last house. Should Mr. Uor- dcu. not grant a plebiscite I can assure you tbftt there will by no such aflUIation in the next con- test." Borden's price for Nationalist support was n heavy one and he has likely rued tho bargain ere this. engage lu foreign trade as American ships, and will be entitled to Ameri- can protection. One has to rub his eyes as lie road5" tin's, for. surely he will sny to himself, :ill this could have happened before. Not so. Any- thing eles, yes, but not ships. There was positive law against il, a law which Grover Cleveland tried to have abrogated but which was kept on the statute books because the shipbuild- ing interests were'too useful as, con- tributors to Republican campaign funds to be disobliged in so summary a way as thai. What could not be done when Cleveland openly argued for it, has been done when nobody 'was looking, everyone being too busy talking about the canal tolls. Pre- sumably the shipbuilders must, have known; indeed there is evidence that they did, for they have received their compensation, another clause in the same act providing that all materials necessary for building or repairing ships in the United States are to be admitted free of duty. The provisions concerning purchase and registration does not apply to ships engaged in the coasting trade, of which the borne shipbuilders will still have a monop- oly, but the-free import of materials apply to all shipbuilding. At one stroke, therefore, American builders secure for themselves the great ad- vantage-."
