Itobertson, leader of the jp-powition, ill the Alberta Legislaturo, �� worried because, on the recent trip of the Legialators, he was not brought into prominoncu as Con.sor-vative leader. Hon. W. H. Cusbing, who iKrccted the tour, certainly made a mistake. He ehould have pushed Mr. Robertson right to the /ront, in (act, he �hould have given him a private car with a streamer on the outside bearing vho would not make an assertion without being able to provo it. It might even be expected to Iw an of-iicial statement, as Mr. Shvr -uin was certainly speaking ns Prusident of the District union. The City . Council very jjroitotly paid hood to Mr. Sherman's .sinte-ment and oflerod to prosecute t hu detective with all the means it pos -sesses, if Mr. Sherman would supply the evidence he declared he po.^scss- It is now up to Mr. Sherman t) substantiate his charge. If he fails to do so, he mu.st expect the jjeople to judge him ns a man whose purpose is to excite onimosity to liie coal company by making rockloss end imaginery charges. lethbridgo, as a city, is injured in the eyes of the out.sidc public, by the reports of the explosions here and it is the duly of the crown to use every eHort to punish the offenders. eihanatcd froni tiic hioiith oi' |k*ii of men, qthefr than Ihosm whiS are so blinded by prejudice and narrow vision, that they imagine the All)criH government is to �cak that the only saUation for the province is the elevation of that eminent and able statesman, A. J. Robertson, to the Premi�lship of this province. EDITORIAL NOTES. People seem to be ignorant of the fact that births, deaths and mar -riagcs shoui'd be rogistciwl. If not ii penalty can be imiMscd. In many parts the law is entirely disivgarJ-od. With , David Whitney producing strawJjerrles in the middle of September, who will dispute, the statement that this is the finest climate on earth. .4 Calgary paper says typhoid is epidemic in the south. Well, Leth-bridgc is in the south and there is not a single case here. Lethbridgc is the healthiest spot in the entire west. Lethbrrdgnts very slimly. Sui ''.v there are enough people in Letn-briclgo, with a taste for high clas,s musical and literary efforts, to encourage an organisation like the Ep-worth League in bringing talent of the crtlilire of Dr. Torrington, Misses McCo.v and Underbill and Mr. .lolly to this city.

Saskatoon, Ueginu, Mvilicine Hat, Moose .Taw, ami Ixnhliridgv. Tlu-y point out that though Calgjiry, and Edmonton have been playing 1 e -tween themselves for the most pari of the season both towns have been supporting teams costing as much or more than the nortliern Copper county leegue. The success of this league depends entirely on Winnipeg entering it. The cost of entering a league of this proportion would be consider -able, but if listjibridge co dd |>ii:cu a strong team in the field there is hardly any doubt but that the citizens would give liberal support. There would be plenty of matches nil sununer and that is what tltc people want. REV. C. McKIULOP HACK. Itclates an Amusing Incident Whicu Occurred at Moose Jaw. Okotoks men know a,good thing Though they arc only a fow miles from Calgarj' they come awny down to Ijcthbridge to invest in rca\ estate. Why? Uecau.se they know I.eth-bridge is going to be a big centre and investments here will reap lar.fo returns. THAT CROP REPORT. The Provincial Department of Agriculture should not issue crop reports until it is certain it has -.or-rectfacts jand figures. No wonder Vac ridiculous statistics it gaw of the acreage and crop in the Lcthbrid:;e district aroused indignation. False impressions, which this report presented, would do inestimable damage to this district-a district where grain growing has been wonderfully ''advancing during the imst year,'and the lioerd of trade acted rightly in .taking the matter up and arranging Jor a correction pf the report, which liaa been scattered broadcast. ^ The reports, of the Dep(|rtnj�lt o' Agriculture should be reliable, so that land seekers can gather accur -ate information about the coiuitry � tout it the ivccnt bulletin is n. sampli> the reports are worthless. What the Department should do is to un-gage a competent man in every district to prepare these reports. Pay him for his trouble, so that he sviU take pains to gather the corr..ci data. It is impos#blo to exiwct to get capable men tO' send in reliable reports for each tow-nship in a district, but it is possible to ascertain all the information desirwl by engaging a man, at a mileage or per diem allowance. A few politicians who soem to cm-ploy their minds to no other pur pose, than looking for chances to criticise the Provincial government, attempted to niako out that the report in regard to the Lethbridge district, had been issued with the sole object in view of injuring South em Alberta in order to boom the north. What rot. These village poiittclaiM, evidently inmginc Premier Butlwrford and his colleagues occupy their, entire time working up chemee to kill the South. Tliuy inaiglno Hon, W. T. Flnluy, f.iinist.ir or.:A�riculture, who comes frola the MVth,^ fairly dances with delight wlm he can send out a report that wlll.ciwe a black eye to the South. TiM '.t�port certainly was Injurious tatJUarpart of Alberta, imt that It *a� JatfOtiunally prepared with that object in view is absolirtely ridicul-oiM and lueh an idea could not faavo Likely Sir Thomas Shaughnessy is postportng his visit here until ho can make a triumphant entry into the city over the iiev high level britigu. F. Dodswurtb writes the Calgary Herald and sides with Conservative leader Robertson in saying that the Legislator's trip was a political dodge. Now, ii the Herald tvould enlighten the public as to who tills Mr. Dodsworth is, his charge might receive a few second's consiled and sals: "Come a-long to the Superintendent." Still holding his man by the collar, Mr. ^IcKtllop led him up the track to the Superintendent's office. Wnen the pair entered, Supt. Brownleo looked up. He knew Mr. McKillop and immediately asked the reason of his api>earancc on the scene with the roadmaster as his prisoner. Mr. MvKillop told him all about it iiiid the Superintendent was so convu'.scd that he fell off his chair. .\s soon as he arose, he said to the Road-ina.e for a proposition of this nature. With the completion ot the irrigation schcnic which the English syndicate is undertaking just south of the city, it is hardly probable that one wssel will l>o able to handle ,tho tratle and a brisk business will undoubtedly spring up in the near future which will necessitate several steamers Icing placed on the Saskatchewan .tt this point. Two cities such as Me.li-cino Hat and Lethbridge should furnish enough excursions to keep a boat quite busy in the early suiimwr Ijofore the grain season starts. The company is capitalized at $50-000, of which !(!15,000 is alreaily subscrilieil.

At the present tin�e, it would be dithcult for a canoe to make headway on the river. Voars ago, in the early days of the A.II. & I.

WEEKLY MARKET REPORT. Contributed to the Herald by Di\t-er & McLean, Winnipeg. Our cable from Liverpool today quote* Ontario cattle loj to llj cents, and Ranchers 9} to 10 cents, being unchanged from last week. The .above quotations show the Ilrit jsh market to be very bad at present and' the cattle Uoing sold ut thenepriccs will net wry bad returns The local market for Butcher Cattle shows no improvement, and we do nut look for any for some tjime, we quote butcher cattle from 3} to :Ji cent*. At Maclcod last week Chief Jus -tice Sifton held a special court. The case which aroused most interest was that of Frank Wilson, act -ing sub-agent of Dominion lands at Maclcod, who was charged with hav-protences. From the evidence it ap-IKjared that the homesteader applied ing obtained the sum of $15 by faise lor money to pay for a homestead to his daughter, who was a domestic servant in the town. The girl ivent for the money to her mistress, who in turn consulted her husband, with the result timt the matter was inquired into, and it was discovered that the accused had represented that the homestead would cost tl5, which the homesteader paid. The accused was found guilty. Mr. Harris, who defended, suggested that the interests of justice would be satis fled by the infliction of a fine. Tlie chief jiistKcc said he did not think so at all. Such odenccs as this were not to he tolerated in western Canada, whera intending settlers had to rely very largely on the integrity of the ofllciats with whom they had to deal. The accused would be imprisoned in Edmon -ton jail for a term of two years. Wilson, who wns evidently much sur-priscfl, foKntod in the dock on hear-ng the sentence pronounced.

Toronto, Sept. 13.-A North lUy despatch says that the Canadian Pacific railway officials at North llaj' report thait the accitlent ni which so many were killed and in the v.alvc, scarce a.s much as would bivak a walnut did it all. This valve or angle cock, us the tochi.t.ciil phrase has it, is a curvofl piece of stool, about six inches long which o|>enK ami closes tho valve close to the coupling in iha air brake. llosido it swing two short but heavy iron chains,iiunc for each car. Those chains are usually hooked up and out of harms way so that they cannot swing loose, rhe im-sont theory is that one of those short stay-chains, each about fourteen inches long, was in 9>mo way jolted loo.so and, swinging, struck tho angle cock thus shuttinji o(i tho air.
