J DISPOSAL OF SEWAGE IN THE RIVER Editor ol the Herald you grant me some space in your paper to voice the sen- timents oi the settlers on the west side of the river on the question, of dumping sewage into the river by the city of Lethbridge. We have been waiting patiently for two years for that long talked about septic tank system to be put into operation, biut instead of the least at- tempt being made to do so, .what are the facts before us today. We find that a further extension of the old sewers has been made into the Duff j addition, thus largely increasing the i amount of sewage implied into the river, which it must be remembered I is done at a point above where the settlers have to get their water sup- ply, and the amount of excreta at present floating on the surface of the wat-er alone is making it positively dangerous for us to use the water i for household purposes, even with the very neressary precaution of boiling it, which we have been doing for the last two years, but, sir, we have; come TO the concluKion that as long I .as we aro willing to submit to this; dangerous condition of affairs so long! docs it seem to be the intention of! suitable for making lime of the best quality and with coal so cheap, I think it would pay the city of Leth- bridge- to dam one of the number of coulees that are close to town and instal a sewage disposal works, using the said lime as an .absorbent, and I believe that the product could be sold as a land fertilizer and. that the en- terprise would he a Paying invest- ment instead as at present de- stroying the water supply a large number of people. In conclusion let me add that if the Belly river was a tidal stream we would have no reason to complain, but being a glacial stream it pro- vides one of the best sources of wa- great slide took place a few yiears the affairs of the city without re- ago, there is a large quantity of rock numeration, is simply out of the question. What we require is a bodjj oi good reliable business men elected by the ratepayers, and who are per-' sonally responsible to the ratepayers, to give a general supervision to all the. affairs of the city, but at the same time we want competent heads of departments, appointed by the council at large, and who are respon- sible to the council. These heads, of departments should be thoroughly ex- perienced and reliable men, convers- ant with municipal work, and who will be required to give their whole time and energy exclusively to the work of their department and who must necessarily be paid good salar- ies. I would further suggest that the ter for household purposes in the I council be increased to 10 or 12 mem- country when left uncpntaminated by the peoples that live on its banks, and instead of fouling it with sew- age it would speak more for our in- telligence if we would put a concrete dam across it, instal a number of turb'ines and generate electric power.

TAKES ADVERTISER TO TASK Editor Herald to an advertisement of one ot our loading hardware finns which T saw in yesterday's Herald offering a prixe for the largest num- ber of ducks killed by any one shoot- er. J I am sui prised any firm should j make any such offer. T am still more i astonished that a paper of your own reputation should publish such an an ad., and I sincerely hope and be- lieve it was an oversight on your part, also that, your advertiser did not realize the far-rcachinc; divmago this thoughtlessly -worded advt. may causv, .Such an ad. is placing a premium on wanton slaughter by the 'thought- less and will doubtless cause the de- struction of 3. large number of "flap- i.e., partly fledged young, which possibly might have escaped were it not for the premium thus placed on their li'fes. Goodness knows the game is not so plentiful that we can afford to have it killed off for the purpose of mak- ing a few cents per head. I venture to say that every season there are dozens of birds killed on the opening days that are never made use of, as it is impossible to keep them fresh during this hot weather. I sincerely hope that next year we will have a bag limit and the season will open much later. Trusting you will give the ing the attention the subject merits.
