They  are  never raised.    Dollar a  day* joints have blossomed into $2  a day hotels.    Bents have, gone up  25  per cent,-and,   in some'cases  50 per cent.    1/know of one house  that "cost $2,000  to  build that is  bringing  in $60 a month rent,,unfurnished. .  The 'landlords, I also  notice,   have .waited   until Tlios.  Burns'  assessment  was completed  before   raising their rents.      They  are a wise, lot of guys.  - Then what on earth is- the use of  this   100.000   club,   the  object of  which is to bring people here when  you, have  no  place for them after  they come?    When they do come,  they "only get the icy mitt anyhow.  There is no one to meet them or  take them in hand and-make them  feel  welcome.    "Instead   of that,  tln-y  promptly get.held up by the  hotels.  Where are you going to find  sleeping accommodation for the  familieV.that , will be pouring in  here by tho hundreds in a few  weeks? The hotels are overcrowded now. The immigration  hall and depot-waiting-room Act  is a rotten reception to give people  whom you have induced to come  here. They won't ail be*Galiciaus  you know.  "You must let people-live after  they get here.  "What, do you suppose,' a stranger  must think who arrives in Calgary  and asks a clerk in a store how'  much wages he gets and what he  pays for board and room ? Suppose a railroad man decides to locate here and inquire^ of a $75  brakeman how ' much he has left  over after paying at the rate of $2  per day at a hotel when he is in  Calgary. What will he think?  You don't suppose he will be  chump enough to remain, ,do you ?  Imagine, also, a stranger, an aver-  ago wage-earner���������asking a married  man' in Cushi'ng's mill what ho is  getting and what rent he pays and  what he has to pay, at t)*c stores for  stuff to live on !  It is easy to get the people into  this neck of tho woods by false representations .but I do not suppose  to' be a party to it.    There is room  in Alberta for,, millions of people,  but, I repeat, they must be allowed  to' live after -they- get here.   Wo  have got to get tho people jnto this  country to make'it a country.

Why don't you put that  in your'pamphlets?.  ��������� The prices would be all right  if the .-producer got anything for  ,his stuff and if wages rose in proportion to the increase in cost of  living.  One final gentle fling at Calgary.  There   are  too .many   men   and  women  in  this ��������� town working for  their bread.      Hundreds of men  are  working    for $50  and SCO  a  month, eekiugont a bare existence.  Wages!'remain immovable, stand  aid and unchangeable.    The situation has become impossible.   AVhat  is. called  the-'Calgary  real  estate  boom 'is' not  a   boom at all, but  merely . a  period  of brisk real estate activity based ou the anticipation, of -a lnrge.influx of new citizens    this'  spring   and  summer.  There is no danger of a slump (except,'perhaps in some of those far-  off Additions,)  if Calgary knows  enough' to���������   keep the newcomers  after they get hero, by giving them  an 'even   break.      But if Calgary  cannot  treat the stranger decently  and protect   him from .the hold-up  methods  of the  hotel men. if she  cannot provide him and  his family  with  a  place to sleep after he gets  here," if there i.j no vacant house  for  him  to rent,  .and   if he finds  himself    openly    and   frankly   regarded as a sucker, then there will  ,be a continuous and hasty exodus  of  newcomers and the slump will  be j'lt-fc what you'd notice. ���������   .  ���������   Has ��������� it tiver occurred to the Calgary  aldermen  that tho hotels are-1  pay ing a ridiculously small license  fee of $200.     In view of the fact  that   the   hotels have raised their  rates'25,G0and 100 per cent.,and are  soaking  the public right and left,  wo ^propose  to    start   a-heal thy  clamor 7to the��������� end that they get-  handed  out    some  of  their own  medicine.     Hotels that charge 15  cants for a glass of beer that costs  them exactly one cent at the brewery,  should be compelled to pay a  $500 license, at the very least, to  the cit}'.  We know, of'one block in Calgary, " recently completed, where  the .landlord raised the rent of his  tenants 25 per cent, after one  month's occupancy. He  until they had furnished their  rooms nicely, had the curtains up,  and the carpets laid aud the gramophones going, aud then, pouf 1 up  wentthe rent.  ' High prices continue to rule in  Dawson City, which is probably  the most expensive town in the  world. Everything is much  dearer than in Calgary, incredible as it may seem The newspapers still cost 25 cents a copy.  At this time of year three eggs ordered in a restaurant cost $1.50,  while a Caribou steak costs $1.  Beer is worth $1 a bottle and champagne $10.50 a quart.  We know places around Calgary  where beer is also $1 a bottle.  Traveling at the rate of 2 cents  a mile might leavo something over  for tho whisk broom artist at the  end of tho run.���������Eye Opener,  A good story conies to me of a  recent County Tyrone (or *was it  County Armagh?) confirmation.  The officiating prelate rosognized a  bent old woman who had attended  many services of' the kind. Have  I not seen yon before? inquired  tho Bishop in hi-s.kiudly way.
