SOLUTION u XDOUBTEDLY Premier Siflon's original solution of the Alberta and Great Waterways mailer, which iinforltinately nol upheld by llie Privy Council, had the support of the majority .of Ihe people of Alberta at the lime. Il is true that lince 1910 the Conservative party has been able to develop a party sentiment this measure arguing that the province had no right to confiscate the money given by the province lo a railway company, a view which Mr. Michener did nol take in lhe evenlful session when lhe A. G. transaction was exposed. Al thai tune he was prepared to rip lhe contract to pieces, but later under ihe tutelage of Mr. Bennett, he assumed the atlilude that the road should bo built and in the last provincial campaign he argued thai Hie olwkes, who held the A. G. W. charter, should be allowed to build the road. Recollections of Mr. Mich- ener in the famous A. 0. session, declaring that this prov- POSSIBILITIES FOR A NEW LOCAL INDUSTRY. IE ARTICLE on binder twine from flax straw taken from the Grain and published in our columns of should be of absorbing interest not only to tbe farmers ui lhe district but lo the c.ity. In the first cnse it means a con- siderable reduction in expenses; in the second it furnishes a scope for an industry for which'Lelhbridge is 'ideally suited. We have had occasion lo refer to the burning of flax and lo deplore, the waste of material which could be commercially used. The solution of the problem now appears in sight. The diflicullies which stood in the way of turning flax slraw into one of its most important uses appear lo have been overlome. We read that attempts to manufacture binder twine from have failed through the inability of securing a product of smooth and uniform'' size which would adapt itself lo the knotter of the ordinary binder. To circumvent this comes the device :of Mr Ware of St. Paul, Minn. The nature of this has been fully des- cribed in the article mentioned. It would be sufficient to say thai it makes the manufacture of binder twine from threshed flax straw a practical ulilily.

Smith, for manufacturing the k'noller, and demonstrations made have proved satisfactory in showing thai sheaves tied with lhe coiirse flax twine by the new device were quite as secure as those bound by the ordinary kiioKer. To quote the Grain Growers' Giiide: "The success of this new attachment means that flax fibre twine will come into general use for binding western grain, and par- ticularly as niix' twine cari be placed on the market for one-half the present price'of Sisal'and Manilla binder Lwinc."

HERE lhe Anglo-Saxon blood runs prowess in lhe allilctic field brings lo lhe achiever as much renown as thai which follows the victor in the Iheatre of war. Today one name throughout lhe English-speaking world stands pre-eminent; il is thai of Ouimct, who has snalched the golfing laurels from lliose .who have so long hecu accustomed lo wear them. .In no unkindly splril we may say thai the redoubtable Vnr- don has met his Waterloo at the hands of n young American of French-Canadian extraction. Nor does this in any way reflect on lhe glory which Vnrdon has acquired on lhe links. He has given Ouimef the distinction which the young player has achieved, il was only through beating a player of the calibre of the many- Umed champion that lustre has fallen on the victor. A new star has appeared in the golfing firmament, and (lie truth of evolution has manifested .itself on the golfing field, and art shown that even in the sphere of popular sport perfection nol yef been obtained. There is no limit to human achieve- ment. We- congratulate Francis Ouimcl on the name he has made for himself.

In the two years Borden rule tbe expenditures of the country have hcen enormously In creased; the cost of living has slead lly advanced and has become the high est In Canada's history; Canadians have.come to that point where they pay more per bead In customs and excise taxation than any people in the world.
