DAD'S the Urd Mayor's SM that has or ibe The collar in front. in. at back. Called New- port in Elk Brand. A good many people have been wondering what basis Dad and his Council use in settling the salary of an official. Some think that it Is set- tled by the amount mentioned on the ticket the applicant has in his mitt. Others say it must be according to the number of friends he has and. various other guesses are given. But nobody j knows, not even Dad. The other day the city fathers handed out a two- thousand-dollar ticket to a man -who does a certain amount of work but really carries no responsibility. He says how much our lots and houses and incomes are worth. And if lie makes a slip Dad's Council is a Court of Revision, make the correction. If, after that, there is any error in the tax collec- tion by which the city loses a hun- dred or two it is not up to him to make it good. He is nothing more or less than _ an important clerk. And yet, he draws more money than lots of business men in the city who are held responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars besides manag- ing the affairs of an .intricate busi- ness. Taking the assessor's salary as a basis, Secretary-Treasurer Eobin- son ought to get about ten thousand a year. These strange spasmodic fits of generosity that come over Dad Council should be subjected to medi- cal examination. But two thousand isn't anything to two hundred thousand or more which Dad is going to ask the people for on May 10. The difference is that the former is a piece of dan foolish- ness while the latter is sense, j SaVj the old Central School will power to what would otherwise be a benighted and feeble city. The side- walk bylaws will go a mhooping. Every man who has a cement walk feels so tickled over it that he will vote to pass it on and the fellow who hasn't got one, wants it bad enough to vote for it. The fellow who has a twelve loot .walk in front of a va- cant lot and who is stuck for half the cost will vote to, stick everybody else the same way. It looks as if every- body but the noble thirteen who al- ways vote against any by-law, will Dad has got the most reliable "nform- ation he can get as to cost of a power has Onally s-.-ttled that it will take one hunched fifty-three thousand The city's engineers have it carefully and are convinced that the plant is a mighty good one. The best what is, is the kind for this burg, no others need apply. If those who ought to know and. whom we pay for knowing say it is the clear cheese and just what we want, it is up to the Burgesses to give their say eo. There will likely be some kronic kranks who will vote against the idea because the assessor's, salary is too large or because the paper still blows on the streets. But the connection is not.perceivable to any ordinary RAYMOND sane citizen and although the crank's Raymond, April is vote is as big as any other it is be- soon to have a Co-Operative Store, lieved he is not very 'numerous. The About forty farmers have gone to- city has got to have a power plant gether and with Mr. Brewerton as and that right away. The old con- manager, will open up a grocery and make a dandy temporary hotel for the surging multitudes crowding here these days. There are ten large rooms which will'hold a good sized village all at once. There are'waterworks and sewer connections, wash basins, towel racks and clothes hooks, elec- tric lights in, some of the rooms. I see right here where all the trans- ient trouble is over. It may be diffi- cult to direct strangers to the place but some easy way will be found to get over this difficulty. The school notion is a whole lot -better than that crazy idea that rattled around some of the empty thought chambers Dad's Council one night. cern is a bum outfit and it will be like putting new wine into old bottles .to patch it up.

F" j No doubt a new era has dawned 'C LiCLWD. ff lie F CIICC j jor products, and especially that of barley. The new western route is now an accomplished fact and export markets are opening their doors to us every day only to find that farmers have only a small offer- ing in export stuff. The farmer un- derstands the value of wheat and oat production because these cereals have always been exported and have brought good .prices. It is different with barley, as there has' been, no outside sale and consequently it has been grown only for feed purposes or A sample may be seen at A.

Mr. Greenway, the manager of the Alberta. Pacific Elevator company is very anxious farmers should grow more barley. He informed the Edi- tor of. the' News that he could sell tons .of barley for next year's shipment- at once if he could be as- for rotation of crops. .With the change of the markets farmers must change their methods and grow more barley. The Alberta Pacific Elevator Co. people are anx- ious to export bushels at good prices if they can get the grain sured that the barley would be the coming season. They can find a grown. This chop is shipped by the compaSiy to Mexico for hoijse feeding purposes, on railway construction. The company is willing to pay the high- est market price. good market for all that can be grown and farmers will do well to at least devote a fair share of their en- ergies to growing barley the coming season. that stunt is tried. It is a lot of money, but hang it all. we are not any little two-cent village now. If the plant is worth the money and we be- lieve it is and if.we have got to have a new plant, why, for the thing like a little major and feel thankful ever after. It is, not a gift but a mighty good investment that will pay for itself while providing light and past -years.': They King' Columbia Dry Cell Batteries For gasoline engine ignition, for bell or telephone work W.

John PringU Would Like to End Hit Thtm Toronto, April of the great Klondike gold rush in 1897 were vividly brought to memory by Rev. John Pringle in his lecture on the Yu- kon in Parkdale Presbyterian church. "If I had but five minutes to de- cide where I would spend the rest of my days I would hit the trail for the Yukon at once. The climate'for nine months in the year is the finest in the world. For two months .the weather is very cold but all the time I was there I never wore an overcoat. And though this is an exceptionally cold winter I have no doubt but that anomone is in full .bloom-on mountain back of Dawson City." ASSAULTED AN M. P.
