After experience May or.-Hurdle otiLethbrldge thinks U might, be to proves t the recall of a city commissioner has been two years in .office. Lethbridge, it seems is learning that a-cupablo-and honest commissioner may-be recalled, or threatened with quite as readily; as in incapable or dishonest one; and that a series of recall move- ments may keep a community in a state of turmoil that is anything but good for it. The drastic nature of the proposed- remedy shows the serious- itjss o? disease.

No aerlous recall movement has been at- tempted in this city. the .beginning the From the imminent fate of being, sur- rounded the German armies in Poland nave extricated themselves, and how fhe tide of battle will now time will only tell. f The escape of the Germans from the tentacles of the opposing forces is stated to be due to the dilatoriness of the Russian General, Kennenkampf, TO Drinking up his reinforcements. However it may be, the enemy has failed in his second advance on War- saw, and it seen hofv lie will get back to his base on his frontier. 1 The Battle is now virtually confined io a semicircle in Belgium and north- France, to round Verdun, and .to Russian Poland. In the former loca- tion -it takes the nature of compara- tively mild offensives on either side, fi'hile in the latter the. supreme con- test rages. From the neighborhood of Eoissons to Verdun there is evidently i'-lull in the hostilities.' T The capture of Be Wet, the "elusive pimpernel" of the last Boer war, is (in achievement which will practically close the trouble in South Africa, and relieve the British government" of juucli anxiety, and .will at the same yme add to the surplus which is pausing the Kaiser's cup of .dis- appointment to overflow. woufd fn'twio an organization that would laugh at the recall threats -of the ratepayers. There Is this to be said from the Latlibridge end of the line that while recall has been talked of it has never been attempted. HecalJ threats have their advantage, at that, for they make straight 'the way the commis- sioners -feel they Ehould travel. True, the occasional rumors of recall may comment on Miyor Harare's speech is as follows: TtuTvisit ot Mayor Hardlo of Leth- bridge" whose'aadresa on Friday night was by 'those responsible for his visit to'help along the move- ment for a change in the form of Ed monton's civic''governmeat, can hard- ly be saidHo have had tho result look- ed for.

The Lethbridgc mayor also one in any doiibt as to, what he hought of the recall idea.- It was vexatious and did not give oSicial E. chfcace to show what could do This, is just the point. that its critics mve made the most frequently.
