The suggestion is being made in uijiny responsible quarters that, with the rosignation of Commissioner Grace, an opportnnity will be afforded ^for. .some changes in the fonn of citf i business in egg? in New York tor seven days, whlio Swift ^- Co. had to drop out of the egg business in New York for thirty days. Both corporations were ordered to, donate to the American ived Cross "the nn-I justified amounts involved in the transactions." The Board finds that neither 'company made, for IJself, an, undue profit; their offence was in "assisting the seller 'o profiteer." That s the. way they are puni�iiing the food profiteers in the United States; The story" is told in the Bulletin of tl)c United Slates Pood Administration, so there is no question as to the accuracy of the facts. .lust by way of contrast the O'Connor incident in Canada, does not sho-w administration. A number of sug- geked changes have been broached,! ^ * particuUrly patrioUc ligHt among them the proposal that a city manager with an elected advisory board replace the present commission iorm of government. The Herald would suggest that the ratepayers thoroughly stiidy tlM whole civic situation before going too i Saaizatlon, "Bolaheviki principles of far with any plan for a change. There ! administration and acceptable is BO doubt there has been a growing dlssfitisfaction with certain thinss connected with some of the city departments. The failure of the human factor however should not le�d to a general condemnation of the system adopted ity the citizens in 1S13. Commission form of government has been a goodAhing for the city. There are ceiftain l-eaknesses, it is true, bnt there were greater weaknesses in �t-dermanic governnent. So while there' is bound to be wide! discussion iTuring the next two or three months over filling the vacancy soon to occur in the council the Herald urges the most careful consideration of the matter by all the rate^j,;;;,, ^^TfroTe sl^, payers. AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AN EXPERIMENT. The sugfestion has been made to the Herald, and passed aloai; to ike Board of Trade, "that the Daminion government should experiment with dry land alfalfa in a certain somewhat �andy district lying alone bot>> sides of the'C.I�.R. UBe in the vicinity of Parple Springs and Grassy X>ake. It �ems that there are about four townships there, mostly north ot the railway line, and In' which most ot the original homesteaders have abandoned their property owing to tite nature of the soil. Tlie rank gnnvth attainad by a^ertain Idnd of dock, and the fact tbat good wells can be obtained almost anywhere ix>-the area at a de^h of 10 to 15 feet, has led some people to think that, if dry land alfalfa could be given a good start on this Isntl the roots would soon find Iholr way to the apparentiy abund-' aut sub-soil ijjoisture, and the land which is now lying praeiio^ly idlr could be made very productive. � TJie laud is Close to market arid for this reason it is felt that something should be done to learn whether it can be made to produce profitable crops ot uy kind. � We hope the Board of Trade will be able to induce the Dominion departs ment of agriculture with its experi-qieatal farm organisation to undertake  test of the district in question. (From Our Own Correspondent) GacdstPti, ApriJ IS.- Mr. L�vi Jensen and H.n.rry Goodwin of Kimball, moved about 4,000 head of sheep on to the Blood reservation leases, which they have obtained, passing their herds through the town early this morning. It is understood that Mr. Jenseii and Mr. Goodwin hare obtained a large lease of about � dozen sec tions for sheep itrasing purposes. Quite a number of sheep men have obtained leases on the south west comer of the Blood reserve.^ Inas riiuch as there place in Canada set flpart for sheop. it appears opportune for the industry to be fostered, at least to a certain degree, although this land could probably have been farmed to advantage. It is understood that Messrs. W. B. Pitcher. A. .r. Stoddard. J. W. Kearl. et. al. have secured farming leases ot iilnd adjoining Oerdston on the north, at'd will, thit summer, break up several sections a9d plant it to fall wbeat for nelt year's harvest. By the occupation of tbe soutti west part of the Blood Indian reserve by farmers and ranchers, the town of Cardgton will materially benefit thereby, the chief necessity heing at present good roads over the Blood reserve.

The time has come when Jjie allied peoples must steel their hearts and prepare for eriry sacrifice. Militarism reigns supreme in the. central empires. No hope should be entertained that the German and Austrian people will rise up against ^tbelr rulers as did the Russians, who, instead of following up their straggle for freedom, merely fell a prey to the iron heel^of Oer-raany. There is only one hope now for world delirerance, and that is to flCht. All other considerations must be dropped. To accomplish victory there are three things the alHes must have In unliutlted st)pply-men, food and transportation facilities. We may. as well face the situation right now and prepare to provide these in a continuous stream. All otlier considerations must be subordinated. The German militarist has chosen battle to the bitter end. Every alHed resource must be marshalled that the sacrifices of the past three and one-half Tears sbail not ha^ been in vain. " , � � Canada shoiild prepare without delay to go the whole length ot her resources.^ in doing her share to win final victory. Indications are not lacking that such preparaMons are under way.

Kootney river to Messrs. W\ Otis Bigelow and Orson O. Bigelow, for ranching purposes. The town coiy^ii held a epec^l cBlnmittee meeting on Monday nigkt to discuss the advisability of securing an expert electrician to make a survey of the present plant and get Uls expert advice before making any changes or alterations. This was un-, anlmously agreed on, the work'being i left to the mayor and the chairman ot i the water and light committee. The man and team hired by the town is making a considerable difference on the roads, and the repairs are very much appreciated by autolsts e.specially. The regular meeting of the town council will be held this evening, at which time the chief item of discussion will be a proposed sewerage sy.s-tem for the most thickly populated portion of the town. Preliminary plans and estimates have already been furnished by a competent engineer, so that none of the work will be attempted without efficient and^expert advice.
