Company which is a subsidiary company of the Canada Western Natural Gas Com pany which supplies The Herald is wondering how it is that the Calgary concern made a Lethbridge Is not directly but probably local gas users would like to it out so we reproduce the Calgary newspapers comment In view of the fact that the Cana dian Western Natural Light and Power which is the parent of the Calgary Gas Com pany showed a profit for Ite 1917 while the child showed a the city commissioners are an xious to see the parent companys financial statement that Their curiosity is Under the franchise agreement the city is entitled to some share of the profit accruing to the company from its business in this It may be all but to the uninitiated it seems odd that with the parent com pany showing a sizeable profit on the years business should be a deficit recirded against that branch which is responsible for the greatest turnover of the product being mar If such a state affairs ex isted in a mercantile business there would be something doing at the an nual At any rate now that the move has been made to see just where the city stands with relation to its share of Gas which do not appear inote but are quite observable in it is well that it be continued to the wherever that may The people will be more satisfied to know the best or whichever it at and we should imagine the company would welcome a clearing away of the suspicion that now sur rounds the The only comment we have is that we are very glad the gas com pany supplying Lethbridge is tied up to an iron bound contract which does not allow it to raise its price above 35 cent and as the maxi pium has been charged for a long time we do not have to worry about gas Joining other commodities in the soaring coats of HOSPIIALAT In
