IccSiH "itrfft montlu'la !0o THE CIVIC ELECTIONS. 1LL Lethbridge next year have a commission worthy of the ideals and aspirations which called the new gov- ernment into being? That is the big issue to be decided on Monday next and the solemn duty of every man and woman in the city enjoying the civic francliise is this week to carefully consider the merits of the various candidates offering for service and select three men who do credit to the city and make.a success of the commission form of government; It cannot be'too often forced home on the people thai the result of the election next Monday will have more .to do with the future of Lefhbridge.lhan any one event of recent years. If the men elected are of the calibre designed to properly interpret the new charter antTgive .the city the kind tif'gdvera- mcnt which tells for progress and biisiness-like-fnethods, there is no doubt but that Lethbridge, .will bewailed as the pioneer in Canada, at least, of a form of chic government which will be vastly different to the cumbersome coiincilg with all" their clash of interests and lack of unity. I.ctlibridge has planned well and while the new charter may i-cquirc some minor amendments ip elfar up auy obscure clauses, the Herald believes that with the proper men at the helm the cily will set the pace for model civic government in Western Canada, :if not.' all Canada. As out by Mr, Ives recently, this city is now an eighteen million dollar corporation, and. likely to increase in value rapidly, who are to manage the business affairs of a corporation like that have got to .be eighteen million dollar men in capacity. The Herald has no iiisparaging.remarks to make of any one of the candidates, but we can hold any one of them in high esteem and 'at the same time ont consider him of the proper calibre to handle the affairs of a city and make a success of commission government. This is the hour for (he eleclors to be Lethbridge people first parly and socially good fellows" after. "Every unnecessary dollav spent or cosily blunder made must come out of the pockets of the ratepayers. Party and social friendships do not figure very largely wlien the tax bills are sent oiii, and the man who votes on other than the grounds bf civic inferest is a very foolish man add 'likely to have to pay for his friendship in the shape of hard earned dollars. Elect a man for first commitaioner who will be able to devise ways and means of handling the civic finances so as to not un- necessarily people's burden, a man who by liis ability inspire Die men of finance when an appeal has to be made to the money markets of the world. The outside world very large- ly judges a cily by (he calibre of the men selected to govern it, and they could not get a better criterion. How it Is, there- fore, to exercise the utmosl care in who ihal'l be fint com- missioner, next year. li is. true that a majority vole of the com- mission necessary to determine policy, but the man to .meet of finance and the man who will be synchronous willi Ihc mayor under the present system is the first commissioner nnd for that reason Lelhbridge should have as that man a man who will lend dignity to the position, and besides bring shrewd- ness nnd business ability into play. Kor the position of commissioner of public works, if the right man is nol selected it might cost the ciiy thousands of dollars. All the public works would come under his direction, and any engineering blunder, so easy nt times to make, would prove costly fo Lethbridge, and Hie cost would come out of the pockets of the people. Is if worth while to run Hie risk for the sake of friend- ship or sympathy? .There will be many important duties devolv- ing on Ibis second commissioner, the selection of a competent man is highly imperative. Lethbridge has made splendid progress along the line of civic ownership of-utilities and every patriotic citizen is jnsliy proud of them. With the exception of the water works, where the need of a fillrafion plant is generally recognized, the utililics are a credit to the city, and there is no belter lighting or street car system in the country- The Herald has every disposition to give full credit to tiieman, or men, bringing so desirable a result to pass, and we feel sure that every rnnn interested in his investment, for every .taxpayer does bear relation of investor to tJie-ulilJIics, will .realize the.absolute necessity of seeing that these utililics are placed charge of ii'imui who knows how to handle such a pro- position. _ The seriousness of Ihe issue is givully enhanced through the fact that the custom of an animal election is now a thing of the past, and if a mistake is marie the opportunity of wiping out the mistake will be delayed. There will of course be the recall, hut the Herald hopes that the time will never come when it will have to be used. Tlie recall is H splendid safeguard but its use does not constitute a good advertisement for the cily. Let man lliink it over carefully and vote with the thought uppermost that these men are to be entrusted with the transacting of his share in civic business, and that if they make a mistake he will have to pay for it in the way he does not care the pockelbook. And above nil this is the consideration of the prestige and future greatness of the cily. Never in Alberta was a civic contest fraught with such consequences. OUR, POINT OF VIEW Think before vou vole. The civic contest is now in the last lap. Give tried and true men fair piny. Take no slock in yellow vams. The success of commission government depends on the men elected commissioners. Slnke llia.t your text for I lie week. Some say the first ballot will decide the issue; others say it will not. Time will tell. if the second choice. decides the result the. plhtT choices do not count. Be sure and make the two best selections first. The man who votes-for party, social reasons in this campaign without all other things being eimal is not wise. The east is taking li. B. Bennett's threats about bolting much more seriously than the people upin'lhis neck of the prairies. The lady who figured as the nominator of a candidate be historic. She is the first to exercise such a prerogative in Ai- berta. There will latfy school when we get mad there remains the privilege of calling all the trustees a bunch of "old women." So great is the interest in the election of commissioners the school trustees were not even asked to'explain one dollar of ex- penditure. Tlie Regina Leader knows what it is talking about when it says: "Mr. R. B. Bennett, M.P., been talking of whnt he will do and what he. won't do unless Hie Borileh govern- ment does so und so. Talking is Mr. Bennett's long suit; action isn't." Now is the time when a co-operative marketing association would be worth something. Unseen forcesnliave pounded the bottom out of the hog market, and the individual fanner is up a tree. Bui with co-operaliye marketing, the farmers would have an organization'which would place them in a position lo strike back. The United States market is open now and: the prices there are up around the same mark as six morilhs.ago. Agricultural colleges as established in Albcrla are much akin to the Wisconsin and Californian systems, with the excep- tion Ihal in Alberta the course is somewhat more comprehensive. The success of these colleges, HIM! Iliey are a success, places Hon. Duncan Marshall in Ihc front rank of ministers of agriculture in Canada. 'Hie Ottawa Citizen says that the Dominion government will expend more lavishly than ever to offset the" money stringency as for as possible. A government lltat is running head on with hard times would need to spend some to keep in popular favor, and if present conditions prevail much longer even the expendi- ture will have but little effect.

Editor UthbrltJge Herald: Dear up fioui Eafcota the other daj- I happened to buy jour Piper on the train read an article therein entitled, "The Southern Al- teria Farmer, Article and would litUe of your "space" to make a fotv criticisms and also to malce a few to the Southern AJ- farmer. It seems lo be a favor- its occupation of a certain class'of writers, both here and across the line, to, tell the farmer how to nm his business. One of their favorite pieces ol advice Is that he should tulld-a shed for his binders, plows, etc.. As a farmer who has done noth- ing else for.24 years, I will state that a Ehed lor a binder or plow and most of _oyr other machinery will not pay Interest on the investment. I mafce exception only for the drill, manure spreader and Our bind- ers, plows, etc., are about all made of steel, these days and in tilts' dry climate, take no harm from being out of'doors.. The writer has 12 binder, some of them 15 years old, and I bought nor have I seen any .one else buy a. pole for a binder or any other wooden part for tbat matter -unless it was actually worn cut, and as for plows, most ot the farmers of my grease the' mould board, etc., when not in use and, the weather does them not one cent's worth of harm. As for n-agona and buggies, I have a, "wagon bought In 1334 and in ever since, that has had practically no shelter except one or two coats of paint, and ta still good enough to haul eighty bushels of wheat to Ita a poor shed for a wagon you could build'for yet the interest on at 10 per cent, for 20 years amounts to or enough to buy a nbw wagon, so that as a cold business pro- position a shed-la a-luxury." A good coat of paint is better than a shed. The writers or these nice spiels had better think up something else. The farmers, as a rule, are Just as Indus- trious, as saving, and as good busl- Tieea men as any other class, the rice fatherly advice of their self-appoint- ed teachers to the contrary notwith- standing. Farm machinery, NKe ev'crfthlng elee In these days ofyinventton and out ol date and unprofitable in much the same way as the old cash register, scales and typewriter ol the merchant, or the old engines and other machinery of the manufacturer, and most.of the Junk you "see aj-ound tho farm is discarded on account of bdcg out of date and unsulted to present con- TTnllto the -writer of the article above" referred to, the writer llkea to giro facts and and will here give a few that may throw some light "on why "the fanner Is hard tp. fall the farmers at White's Spur, In North Dakotaj all got to- gether, and built an elevator costing We had a paid-up capital of 55000-with shares'of each.- We organized as a company, tie first 10 per cent, ot'profits each year to be paid as a dividend on stock and'.the balance cf.profUs to be divided pro rala according to the number of bushels marketed by each stockholder.- The writer took four all ares "df stock' and at. our annual taeetlcg'in'July received of a dividend after the company had paid off'the' on capital ac- count. .The elevator company also sold, us coal at 50 cents above cost, twine -at per pound above I cost, and formaldehyde at cents per pound, which saved all of us a lot of .money. The farmer has al- together'too many parasites on hia back. If he w.bulfl "scratch, some of them off he. "would feel better.
