With this approval goes the voting of permission to borrow 000 to secure the plant. There are one or two points in this connection that are worthy of attention. One of these is the plant is an absolute ne- cessity. The old plant is inadequate and unsafe. It is worked to its full capacity to supply the light and power at present required" by the city. The city is growing fast and obviously requiring more power and light. The present plant is at its limit and what- ever more may be required of it can- not be given. The fire underwrit- ers consider, it unsafe and the risks on are carried only in the under- standing that it be used only until such time as the new plant can be installed. A plant condemned in this way is not a safe thing to' rely on SUN FIRE The oldest Insurance Office In the world FOUNDED A.D. 17IO 1910 HOME OFFICE t LONDON. ENGLAND ftruck. SWM Toroato. H. M.

A good tree is a joy to many generations and the planting of one does away with Herald. Every property holder and every man doing business in the city should a" member of the Board of Trade and help boost Lethbridge by organ- ized means. Getting on in the world is a good deal like making a garden [f you put in more work than your neighbor and use as much intelli- gence will have a better garden. Side Cardston, April Ibey, cf Taber, has come to pay a visit to her friends in Cardston. For some twenty years she lived here and has many relatives and friends in this locality. Mrs. Caroline Laytoii, mother of James Layton, returned from an ex- tended visit to points in Arizona and Utah. While the winter has been mild in Utah the spring is cold and stormy, making the roads very mud-; dy and travelling difficult. Miss Gundry, who -will teach tht; grade in the public school, arrived today. She will stay at the home of William Laurie. Utah for courae, are home again; They had a profitable time while absent but each of these young men pleased to be home once more. The Council has ordered that Daiu- es street be gravelled from the Cus- tom's office to Spencer's store. This road as the mud is very deep at this part of the street.

(Lacombe Globe.) led Deer There is some talk that Mr. E. Micherer, M.P.P., intends taking action for libel against the Lacombe Globe- for printing the bill "Con- servatives Beware. Michener has secretly pledged himself to the Lib- eral Government, etc." We are sorry to say that the above announcement is only too true. We have this week received notice from a firm of ed Deer lawyers that unless for the city's protection from fire, for i an apology is published and the ite supply of -water, of power and of {name of the author divulged, we will light. The new plant is therefore an absolute necessity. Another point worthy of special consideration is that the outlay of. so large a sum of money is an in- vestment rather than a tax. Ordin- ary local improvement tares for side- walks, etc., are taxes that are not repaid except- by their usefulness and convenience to the citizens. But the investment in the power plant is a business transaction which will give financial returns. It amounts to the city as a whole advancing "the electric j D.

DISCOUNT department Ihe sum of one hundred and fifty-three thousand dollars. The money is spent, on the plant. The plant brings'in a direct .revenue to the city. As "the revenues exceed the expenditure, the difference is used to meet the debentures that are guaranteed by the city. When the profits exceed the running expenses and. debenture payment, the Council can reduce the light and power rates thus indirectly reducing taxation and giving back to the people their out- lay in debenture taxation for the Cap- ital investment. Outside of its value be asked to pay 11641x7 damages. This is ratehr hard on a struggling a newspaper that has al- way striven to do the right thing by everyone, irrespective of politics. As libel suits, like all luxuries, cost money, however, and in antici- pation of heavy expenses, we would ask all our readers to pay up their subscriptions at once. To induce new subscribers to contribute to the fund we will for the next month give one fully paid subscription for one ,year for 99c cash; or if you subscribe for from the standpoint of fire protec- tion, water supply and light, the plant will be a direct paying invest- ment paying for itself and interest in the course of years, repaying to the ratepayers every cent invested in it- Ratepayers should consider these two "important points in deciding how to vote on May 10. ten years you may have this great family journal for 98c pex annum, cash in advance.
