Meanwhile the male population of Calgary rests on on anenvlous reputa- tion, for tho writer says that he, or she, has been In many cities, but has never witnessed so great a lack of chivalry In public places and public vehicles as on some of tho street rail- way cars operating in that city. For the sake of western manners it up to Calgary to remove this Im- pression. OUR POINT OF VIEW Vote for Hatch. Buy your Christmas presents Be a good fellow and u booster.

BOKDE.VS secret is out and everyone has known it for weeks. Canada is asked lo contribute to the Down- ing street exchequer for the purpose of building three dreadnoughts. There is nothing seriously objectionable in tlie proposal provided one is noi too( linnicky on the question of taxation! representation. Canada cauj afford it. The big question is ilier the BoriJen proposal is the best lor the empire. Lord Charles Beresford, whom all, good torics cheer fnr, does not take kindly to it. He prefers the Lauricr policy of a home .made, navy would guarantee the security of the food supplies for the motherland-- in the event of a general war. There, is much to think over and it would pay much better in the loug run to think: tor a while before going into patri-j otic ecstacies over the Borclen, contri-; button proposals. It is possible to oppose the contribution and be quite as imperial and loyal as Jlr. Uonlen. The question to answer seems to "Is it the best ed over? Hunt up the bouses apt to be missed by Santa Glaus. Duly is days until Christmas get busy! Vote for straight commission and a well governed city. ..Mr. Price. Well, the much looked for naval secret is out.' and everybody appar- ently knew all about it for several weeks back. What clever men these newspaper men at the Capital are. Oh. jokes are'perpetrated in thy name! The opinion of sound flmmders and business men who have visited Leth- brldge-during the past year unani- mously praise the civic progress of the proof Unit Hatch for mayor Is the right way to vote on Monday. Satisfaction IT IS WITH PRIDE and satisfac- tion that every Canadian will note tlie stir our cattle and horses are making at Chicago, It is a big advertisement for the Dominion in the possibilities it possesses for raising live stock of n superior grade. With. its capacity for producing the best wheat in the. world, and horses and cattle tbat can hold their own when pitted against the best of any other land, the Virtues of this country, as an irieal agricultural one, becomes firmly established. Already American farmers speak of i great grazing qualities of our and Regret western land. It is no uncommon thing to hear It said that cattle fed in tbe open compare most favorably v.-ith the, stall-fed animals over the border. But, in spite of all reasons for con- gratulation, there comes the regret -that there stands a tariff wall acting as an obstacle to prevent tbe agri- culturists of this country realizing to the full the benefit of the advertise- ment they are receiving. A short- sighted policy prevents the bringing over of stock to be fed'on our fertile areas, and likewise, bars our pro- ducers from making the most cf a market where the virtue of their goods have been proclaimed. Let There Be No Doubt ANY DOUBTS expressed as Mayor Hatch's stand with gard to the commission form of government ought by now to be laid at rest. He is entirely in favor of it, and will see tbat the wishes with regard to the same are carried out. Aftar all, it IE directly a matter for the electors as to whether the new government should be installed or not. in this respect the voices the ratepayers on December 9th should he loud and clear. There should' be no room allowed for any grounds for doubt that the policy is one which the people are insistent on. Study the form for marking your bal- lots carefully. .Mark your ballots dls- in favor nf the straight form .of commission. This by now the rate- payers, who have carefully studied the question from all points, cannot but have come to see is the wisest and tho best, The wishes oC the ratepayers have to be Brst considered. All the can- didates have expressed their willing- ness to carry them out, but to be per- fectly sure let every ratepayer inter- view his own personal choice for election, and make sure that he will promise his hearty support to the new policy if the people so desire it. If in any degree unconvinced do not vote for him. Make sure, and be in deadly earnest, thai the best gov- ernment for the city will be accom- plished. Jn a strong belief in the adminis- trative abilities of .Mayor Hatch, against which-nothing has heen prov- ed, with an acknowledgment of his ex- perience in handling civic matters, and with a faitb that he will place no obstacle in-the way of carrying'out the commission form of government, should the ratepayers so will it, Herald supports the candidature ofthc present mayor for a second term of oftice. Vote For the Iron Works Bylaw VOTE for the iron Works bylaw. Mr. Elector, do not forget that on Monday next you will he called upon to vole either ior CT ag- ainst the iron Works bylaw. That bylaw, which you will havr- all care- fully read, provides for the framing of certain concessions to the Iron "Worha Company, if the company moves its plant to the industrial site. The concessons asked for are no greater than those extended :i few years ago to the mlling companies. Tiie company is home-grown and hits helped Lrethlrridge grow. It seems necessary at (bis time to pet seme safe concern started build- ing ou the industrial sites: Therefore the Herald believes that tho ratepayers should vote in favor of 1ho bylaw. In view of the fact that some time ago tlie'Herald came out strongly in opposition to the bonus, the above statement may not seem consistent. The Herald -does not now believe in honnsing. R has not changed its stand on that subject; but there are extenuating circumstances. It is pret- ty safe to follow the old saw, "When in Rome do as the Romans do." Other v.'estorn cities are Then Uihbridge must follow suit, no matter bow much it may hurt Lethbrldgc's feelings. Until ihc Romans do differ- ently than they have been doing in this regard, Uthbridge must bow' to Hie inevitable, striving all the time, how- ever, to change the ways of the Ro- mans. Under the circumstances, then, there docs not seem to be anything else to do but vole for' Mrybe h will bo the start of tho'racu which will place Lclhbridgc on the manufacturing map. ft will be n good start anyway. THE INTERCOLONIAL RAILWAY FORMER United States Senator Beveritlge of Indiana has been studying the Intercolonial Rail- way system of Canada and in an ar- ticle in the latest issue of the- A-meri- can Review of Reviews ;he 'reasons that despite many disadvantages as to route, territory served and-politi- cal manipulation, the experience of the Intercolonial demonstrates the practicability of the successful appli- cation of the principle of public own- ership tp' railways on this continent. Tho Nelson News says that" this conclusion may seem'strange to many people in Canada- who have become convinced that the Intercolonial was a failure as a railway enterprise. It points out that effort has been! to damn the Intercolonial in order to prevent the spread of (he government ownership doctrine. Mr. Beveridge, however, uses the Canad- ian government road to prove that government ownership can be made a success. In the first place, in point or cost of construction Mr. BcverJtlge finds that tlie" Intercolonial compares more than other railways of the continent' -H-HIi very few excep- tions. He also'iinds that the road, in- cluding; ballast; bridges, etc., is iii much better, condition than the aver- age of American lines. Its rolling stock, Us passenger, sleeping and din- ing car services are all equal to, if not better than those of most American Mr. Bevei-ldge frankly points out that, while _the Intercolonial last year showed a nominal proiit of_ -000, this did noi include anything in the way of interest on the cost of construction, which was spine ninety odd million dollars. But he does not stop there. He next takes up the uuestion of rates, and compares both freight and pass- enger charges with those of Canada's A CORRESPONDENT "to a Cal- gary paper' deplores the fact thnt chivalry amongst the males of that city is becoming for- gotten quality. The experience which causes him to form his conclusion is derived from .travelling on the street Street Car Manners cars. There he has been impressed with the lack of courtesy or defer- ence by certain of the male element towards the other sex. He specifics a ease in which on ono car counted no less tlian twenty-two men seated, while sfivon OP eight ladles wore com- pelled to slunil. ilc puts this lack of This Paper does not think or guess some generalities about what it gives adver- tisers for their money.

P. R. AGENTS Opp. Alexandra Hotel Phone 1343 three private railway enter- prises, tlie Canadian Pacific, the Can- adian Northern ami the'-Grand Trunk. On the rate per ton mile, the method of computation, which has hieeu adopted by all Canadian roads, for the last fiscal year was as fol- .lows: Intercolonial .............853 cents Canadian Pacific.........778 cents The Grand Trunk.........672 cents The Canadian Northern .73-1 cents Jlr. Bcveridge points to the fact that the Canadian Pacific rate per ton mile was 40.0 per cent, the Gran, Trunk 21.5 per cent, and the Canadian Northern per cent higher than that of the Intercolonial. In order to shoiv the effect of this difference In rates .Mr. Beve-ridge demonstrates that while in JOOO, which he takes for comparison, the Canadian Pacific rail- way's freight earnings amounted to had the Intercolonial rates in effect on that road the earn- ings .for the year would have heen less than they were, or hail the Canadian Pacific Railway rates been in effect on the Inter- colonial that road would have earned J2.4S5.000 more than it did. The situation in regard to passenger rates is much similar. On a mile basis the comparison is as follows: Intercolonial 1.691 cents Canadian Pacific 1-821 cents Grand Trunk 1.70i cents Canadian Northern 2.1S-1 cents Taking the year lillO as an instance Mr. llevcridse shows that had Inter- colonial rates heen in effect on the Canadian Pacific Railway company's lines in- that year, the company's re- venue from that source would have heen less than it was, while had the Canadian Pacific rates been in force on the Intercolonial, the gov- ernment line would have received from its passenger service more than it did. It will be seen from these iiguros that, with the Canadian Paciiir Railway company's effect on the Intercolonial, that road would be returning to the Dominion treasury a fair interest upon the amount of money invested in- it as well as paying its oivn way. I-Yoni a comparison of rates Mr. Ifavcridsc. turns to n comparison of operating costs, and finds, from the sworn returns of the various rail- ways, that the following is the cost of running a train one mile on the Intercolonial and on tho three big l.-riva'le l.ines: Intcrc'oloniel Canadian Pacific 1.50-1 Grand Trunk 1.817 Canadian Northern To Shippers of Grain Before selling or shipping your grain consult JOHN BILLINGS CO.

Local Manager SALBERG Thcs-e figures would indicate that luisincss can be handled on a govern- ment railway, and is being handled on the Intercolonial, at a lower cost than on similar enterprises of a pri- vate nature. The chief criticism of the Inter- colonial which Mr. Beveridge has to offer is the manner "in which politics have been allowed to intrude into its management and to interfere with its success as a business enterprise. The condition of affairs, Mr. Beveridge finds, is .gradually being done away with. The appointment of a board of management a few years ago has done much in this direction, while the organization of the men into unions in the interest of their own well-being is also having :i beneficial effect along a different direction.
