Lclbbridge is no different from any oilier cily in that respect. It is the common experience of office holders everywhere.

But what is expected is thai under (lie new form of government Hie lliree men silling down: lo clcsks, as Ihe business managers of'a.great corporation, will.adopt .the' same policy as if they were the employets of a private corpora-: lion, and will .do their utmoat to give the city (he best kind of business' The'people of I.elhb ridge, expecl that under the new regime the commissioners forget alt .Ihe political niamiortuvring under the aldermanic sysleniilo gel favors for this part of the cily, or thai, and will see lo'if llint-4-hen money is spcnl il is to lie spenl for the general good of sml not -without absolute hoccssily justifying il.' Tlic jecl in changing from the aldermanic lo Ihe cominission form of government was lo introduce .bustness-iike. methods in civic administration. If there is not a change in methods there would he little use in the change of government, as il is probable that Ihe average elector would sooner see a larger body of men at the coilnril board than three, if there was lo be no improvement! in the way the managed. The lest of commission govern- ment will be seen in Hie administration.

On the other band, if there is no improvement, the cause of' straight commission government will receive n serious iiol only in Lethbridge, but all over Canada. II is no idle boast! to say that nil Canada is watching Lcthbridge. fn jio cily is there absolute satisfaction with aldermanic rule, antl if the commis-' sioners prove a success here there is'rio doubt but lhal olhorj cities will emulate our example.
