THE QUESTION BEFORE THE PEOPLE mic to a plebiscite of the ratepayers the question of whether or not a change in the present form, of civic government is required and the whole} matter of the commission system, i which has been much talked about j during the past two years and a. half, is thus taken from the field of spec- ulation and thrown bodily into the arena of practical civic polities. The plan or system which the Letb- bridge city council appears to hare in view is tiiat which within the last few rears, ias been adopted 'by scores of cities in the central and" western states. Its outstanding features are a salaried commission of from three j to six industrious able men, elected by the people for long terms, but re- sponsible to the people direct by means of the initiative, referendum and recall. If the ratepayers of the city of Lethbridge vote to adopt a sion plan embodying these features. Lethbridge will -be in the somewhat unique position of being the first ciiy in Canada to adopt them; and, in any case, from the information at J3r.nd. it is tie first city in Canada in which j the people hare ever had the oppor- tunity, even, of voting upon the ques-j tion. Upon the other side of the line, however, the spread of this form of municipal government "nas 'been rapid indeed. It is the natural reaction, per- haps, from the admittedly rotten state in which, for a long rime, American j municipal poltics had stewed and fes-! tered. After years of floundering be-1 tween scandalous subserviency to cor-1 porations on the one hand and ignor-1 ant or vicious or dishonest attacks' upon them on the other, the progres-! sive committees of the country have in recent years been coming to the conclusion that to got this business j of the people attended to promptly' and satisfactorily, in is necessary to entrust it to small and well commissjoss, composed of competent -men charged with due power and re- sponsibility. It is an axiom of good government that the men in control of things must i be men of known integrity, ability, in-'j dustry and sound judgment. In aj young city like Lethbridge, few men of this style are in the leiSL'je class; they are occupied in private enter- j prise, and if the city is to have the services of such men it must pay sal- aries hig enough to tempt them from private life. Among those la Leth- bridge who hare given the matter any study at all, it is fairly well agreed that a, commission, or council, com- posed of two or three highly qualified, salaried men, has got to take the place, executively at" least, of the pres- ent aldermanic chairman of commit- tee system; so further discussion up- on this point Is unnecessary. But the point that has got to be j tureshed has got to be de- cided by the ratepayers for them- simply this: Shall this sal- aried council or commission be made responsible to another and a numeri- cally larger council, "which in turn is supposed to be responsible to, and re- presentative of the people? Or shall it be made responsible to the people direct by means of the initiative, ref- erendum and recall? Do the people wish to elect a board of aldermen who will govern and direct the commis- sioners for them? Or do the people tnink that it would be a better thing to retain the election and control of the commissioners in their own hands? Whichever is finally decided upon, tnere is one thins tc be very care- fully guarded opinion that seems be quite general, that the commission plan constitutes a pan- timate of the three maritime rinces is 1..QG0.67S. as 'against I ten years ago FINISHING OF MEATS IN LOCAL FOOD STUFFS The work of mutton finishing be- ing undertaken by the Lethbridge Fanning Co. is the kind of enterprise tfiat should grow.

It is the logical accompaniment of our great alfalfa wealth. ayor and town council. The Calgary Albertan 'says Alberta in need of another Normal school, j tvatch the deputations from Peace River Landing to Couns swarm iinto the Premier's office and demand :this new institution. Calgary is very much annoyed be- cause its population is underrated. That ciry claims people and at that rate the city limits are bound- ed on the east by Medicine Hat, on the west by Banff, on the south by High River, and on the north by Premier McBride said British Co- lumbians took the ground that they were welcoming the premier of Can- ada without reference to parry affilia- tions and that in Sir Wilfrid Canada has its most illustrious citizen. That is the proper attitude for good citi- zens to take. From Other Sanctums OUR POINT OF VIEW Calgary must have taken its last census at fair time.

Winter wheat in the Cardston dis- trict strikes 30 bushels to the acre in one instance. How is that for a dry year in Southern Alberta? Mr, Candy, the Edmonton immigra- tion man, will find Southern Albena farmers have too much faith in this to be tempted away. The Postoft'ice department has found out one thing about Lethbridge and that is that it has a real live Board of Trade.
