NEED OF A COMMISSION The Oity Council seems to have forgotten all about the proposal that the electric light and water plants should be managed by a commission, chosen by the people, instead of by a committee of the council, as at pre- sent. JTo sane argument can be of- fered against this method of admin- istering, the public utilities. Xearly every city in Canada and the .United States possessing municipal plants of this character, operates -them through a commission and one only needs to recall the splendid results of municipal operation of water, light, and street railway plants in Guelph, Ont., and water in Feterboro, Ont., quoted in the Herald some time ago. to be impressed with the efficiency of the, system. As we have said before, Aldermen, who have roads, walks, li- censes and such like to also occupy their attention, cannot be expected to supervise the management of large public utilities, such- as the water- works plant and the electric light plant. What is needed is a commas sica of three men, who will devote all their spare time to these plants At present we are allowing these utilities to be conducted in. the olc way, showing little interest in. their operation and heedless of the fact, whether the plants are being run at a profit or not. The time is ripe for tlie election of a commission of business men to conduct the affairs of these concerns, in which the city has naa.de such heavy investments. Side Uflbts A SAMPLE One or the recent by-elections in England is responsible for this story: Canvasser (to lady of the house) "Can you tell me, my dear ma- dam, whether your husband is Lib- eral or "Oh, said the lady, "whoa he's with Liberals he's a Liborol, and when he's with the Conserva- tives he's a Conservative." "Yes, but between what is he at home! He's a perfect "Oh, at nuisance." How would this description fit cer- tain "independents" whom you know; here in Canada? valued at more than an acre. In Bruce county the sow-thistle is very ThistU Depreciating the j marked, turn farmers in that section ef Farm Land in Perth County are leaving the land, as they have found it impossible to grow crops or rent their farms. At recent meetings of the Farmers' AN INJURIOUS PEST Stratford, April Nelson Monteith, who is in the city today, in conversation, made mention of a new pest, the sow thistle, which is causing a great deal of anxiety to the farmers. It is perennial and grows from the root as well as beijag spread from the seed. The pest is compar- atively recent in this section of the country, but the injury caused by its rapid growth and spread has resulted in an awakening to the fact that some Institutes throughout the country, the question has excited no little dis- cussion, and many plans have been suggested to effectively deal with the pest.

Premature decay and all DON'T OVERLOOK CALGARY (Claresholm Review) We earnestly hope that tho bunch, of Evangelists who are billed to I v. in bard the west will not be guilty of giving "the north" all uttt-n tion in Alberta and that Calgary will get its full share.

THE NEW SCHOOL Thanks to its progressive Board of Education, Lethbridge is well equipp ed. educationally. The Board has been wide awake at all times to the city's needs and schools have been es- tablished- or enlarged as the school population increased. Today the new Central. School is being officially opened and tomorrow the pupils abandon the old school for the new. The new school is the best in Alber- ta; there are none better, that is cer- tain. The trustees deserve the high- est price for the splendid investment they have made for the ratepayers The school from every standpoint, would be a credit to cities ten times -the size. The facilities and equip- ment are of the most modern nature and the efficiency of eur should be advanced under the im- proved conditions to be found in the new school. OUR POINT OF VIEW When Longboat won the sporting editors sized him up as a world beat- er, but as soon as he is beaten they start to knock and declare he is over rated. That is the way of the world. When a man is up he is worshipped; when he is down he is knocked. Lethbridge is the centre of culture today at any rate. It has in ita midst the Minister of Education and) the members of the Council of the province. Educational They will go away with the impression that Leth- bridge is in the very front rank in providing the beat and most modem facilities for ita school population. new Central School is probably the best in Alberta. The best is none too good for thia grow- ing city. BuiWing permits tell of the growth of a city. Tip to the preoent time tha permits taken out in thia city al- most total Before the year closes it is safe to say the to- tal will be wen over the million more titan twice aa large as last year. The winds we in this country are gentle zephyrs compared with the hurricanes that do thouaanda of dol-, lars worth of damage in Ontario. Certain newspapers are planning wonderful changes in the Alberta ca- binet. Premier Rutherford is sitting tight and amiling at the 'guesses of the prophets. A down cast paper says that Great Britain should pounce on the German fleet right away and wipe it out be- fore it has a chance to grow. Ger- many might follow such tactics it it was in tho same position. A NEW TEACHER FOR LETH- BRIDGE (Cayuga, Ont., Advocate) Mass M. K. Davy severed her con- nection with the Public School, her at noon yesterday (Wednesday) anetween Great Falls and Canada. At he present time registered mail to jethbridge and adjacent cities has to be sent to the registry office at St. 'aul, before being taken, across the anadian border.-This condition ot affairs necessitates a waste of much ime in the transmitting of mails rom .thig and surrounding cities to anada and is a great inconvenience to the businessmen of this section. >f the state, but there will probably be no remedy until a daily service is inaugurated between Shelby and the anadian boundary.

Wallace who a farmer at Clareeholm and who accompanied one of our excur- sion parties and purchased fifty acres of land from ua last fall. He spent the winter visiting the fruit districts in the States and is now settled on his latnd at Burton City, Arrow Lakes. March 11, 1909. Dear Mr. Freeman, Thia a fruit country, a valley which ie one solid orchard. These or-w charda sell at per. acre. The elevation is feet above sea level. They have to irrigate and water ooata per acre per year. There is no reason why Arrow Lake lands should not bring as much in time at-theae lands. I am aathfied that we can prod nee as much and aa food fruit there, and without irrigation.- Burton Valley will be another Palisade if the who arc in land there do their part."
