But it c tainly Is noise. The Toronto Telegram will now proceed to remove H. L. Kiehardaon from its gallery of favorites. The Saskatoon Phoenix is now be- ini; primed on a Coss perfecting press. arc glad io welcome the Phoonix j into tho Herald class. The way these M.

Sam will be right at home ns a member of it fur he is up in the air most of the time. A Real Estate Fake THAT ALLEGED interview with Sir Thomas Shaushnessy look- ed ou the face of it to be a downright fake, and that what it is proved to be. Sir Thomas doesn't outline the plans of the C. P. K. to interviewers and more especially he does not announce proposed changes in routes to newspaper men. Apart trorn that, however, a cursory study ot" the position 01 ;he C. P. R. in this part of the country would convince e. sane man that the story published in Winnipeg criminally and then cop- ied ia Calgary was a fake. The Can- adian Pacific Railway did not build the million and a half dollar viaduct at I.etobridge merely to accommodate Crow's Nest traffic. U no doubt had in view In the construction of this immense undertaking making provis- ion ICT great west from Leth- bridge. The fact ihat it intends mak- ing the Crow ;i through route to the Pacific coast is one proof of this. Its" purchase of the lines of the A. R. fi- I, Co, gave it a siroaeer foothold in this district, but it also enabled ii to acquire a strip of already constructed line to its "Weyburn line into this city. Consider for a, moment the suggestion that Lethbridge would be practically left off the Weyburn line and that the connection with the Crow would be made at Macleod1. What 'would it' mean? Certainly the C. P. R. would have to cross the river again and that would entail a. big expenditure oil another viaduct. It Is ridiculous talk and inspired solely by some fellow who has real estate to or we are badly mistaken. H must be remembered also thai the C. P. U. is heavily interested in Lethbridge. Since :is purchase of the A. R. I. interests ii is the heaviest individual holder ci real estate in the city. It is only reasonable to conclude that the railroad "company is net go- ing to (io anything to injure Leth- bridge. rather its purpose will be greater than ever to aid in the de- velopment of this city. It is to its advantage to do so. Those suffragettes may he willing TO go without food, but it is a safe wager that it in not necessary to force them to read the latest fashion journal. Now walch and seo if some real estate agent doesn't use that inter- j view about the Weyburn line in ad-} vertising in the east to try and sell lots at a point not very far from Leth- bridge. The real estate promoter does not do aM his fake advertising in the ad- vertising columns. If you do .not know what wo iiro driving at you been asloop for tho last few days. The receipts of Stampede at Calgary were announced weeks ago, but up to tho present the bar-room ro- ceipts have not been revealed. Hero's belting thiit they wirre higher than the Stampede returns. It is said Ilorden will make an em- ergency contribution of threv Oread- noughts to the British navy following which it is more than likely Henri Hourassa will contribute three axes-: for thn removal of tho heads of the Nationalist members of the govern- ment. The Kingston standard. Conserva- tive, claims to know that the reason Sir Wilfrid Laurier did not come west was because tho prices on the grain market were against, his docirino of access to the United States market. One thing is certain, that no matter where the grain markets stand the esteru people are with Sir Wilfrid and his policy. An eastern Conservative paper ob- jects io Kver Hardie interfering in affairs by advising the work- classes to oppose any participa- tion by Canada in the wars of the Empire. Likely the very same paper was willing to feature the views of British M. P.'s who opposed recipro- city. Kier Hurdle has as much right to express his views, in this country ;is the other fellow.
