The farmers cannot adjust farm management of years ago to the conditions of today; they must meet the conditions as'they exist, as they find them, as they arise, and unless they got- into mixed farm- ing, broaden out their markets, and take advantage of the prices that are being paid for live stock and livestock products they will continue to farm as their grandfather did losing a- crop every other year, or oftener. The mixed farming- propaganda is the most important thing that Southern Albertt has had, and it is expanding most grntilyingly. Let the good work coiir tiuue, farmers, and aid your booster organizations in reporting your pro- ress and your successes in mixed farming.

They have fulfilled their pre-elec lion promises lu this regard. They have managed Iho affairs of the city ill a year when more work was done than In any year since tin? city was innugurjlfcfd. Oppownts .Mayor Hatch cannot point to a contract which has been bunded, nor can they say thai the administration has not worked hard and faithfully for the city. If then these men, who have lived up to their pre-election promises, de- sire to stand for re-election, why should they be turned clown to make way for men who have never to any particularly noMceable extent identi- fied themselves with the upbuilding of the city. Such treatment would hardly conduce to create a desire on the part of good men to offer their services in the future. And the cry of the day is tor good men for public offlce. The amount of work done in LetliN bridge this year has been enormous. The machinery has been no greater than It 'was in 1911) or 1911. Then give the credit to the 1JI2 atlminis- ration for the good work they have ioue.

It the sentiment everyone looks SPEAKING of the re-organiza- tion of the departments made lii 1912, the part played by Aid. Aird in connection with the cky stables should not ho forgotten. Aid. Alrd, early in the year, saw that something in 4that .direction. The .stables were in the city engineer's de- partment, but the horses were used by nearly all the other departments. AM. AJrd went-to Mayor .Hatch, and complained. Together they framed up a policy making the stables a sep- arate department- Aid. Aird was given a free hand to put the new department on a proper basis. That he has done -so can be readily seen by anyone who will make an investigation. Horses are now supplied the various departments with no overlapping. The various depart- ments are charged 'with their proper, proportion of the expense of the part men t. The re-organization has j been one of the important features ol the year's administration: The Herald believes that electors will see lit to re-elect Aid. Alrd on Monday. While he holds opposite views to. this paper on the commisT sion form of government question, it safe to assume that Mr, Aird would bow to the will of the majority, and if commission form of government i chosen by the people, he will lend a! his energies to see that the new char ter is submitted- at the coming ses on. It is not fair to accuse .Mayor Hatch hedging with regard to the radial ilway. "When he first made the atemeiit regarding the same he mply accentuated its importance to e city if it could handle the same, here was nothing in the way of de- aing it as a policy strictly for the city.

King, "I'm the ghost that The School Trustee Question yN VIEW OF THE FACT that I statement made- in Its iasu'e Thursday, regarding the absence of qualifications entitling a certa candidate to stand for election i school trustee, was called into ques- tion, the Herald finds it necessary on nubile grounds to make the same good. The task is easy and perfectly clear. There are two authorities which must necessarily carry weight in arriving at the proper and correct conclusion. These arc the city char- ter and the school ordinances. Jn the Statutes of Alberta, 6 Ed- VII., Chapter 64, deals with an act to incorporate the city of Leth- bridge. This act is cited as "The Lethbridge and was assent- ed to May y, liJQti. Title III.. Section 4, states the following: Xo person shall be eligible for election as Mayor or Alderman unless he is a natural born or naturalized subject of His Ma- jesty, is a male of the full age of twenty-one year, is able to read and write, is not. subject disqualification under tins Act, is resident within the city or within two miles of tho limits of the city, and is at the time of the election the owner of freehold, leasehold, or partly freehold and partly leasehold real rated in bis own name 011 the last re- vised assessment roll of the city to at least the value following, namely, freehold, leasehold, Furthermore, in Title VII. relating to schools and school trustees. Section Ii states: All the provisions in this Act contained respecting election and qualification of aldermen and the (inallflcatlon of electors shall mu- tatis'mutandis apply to the fliec- tion of school trustees. In clear and concise terms, there' fore, the (lualificatiou necessary for a school trustee is stated. The onb argument which can be brought to refute this is the school ordinances. Do the school ordinances in any way effect the requisitions laid down by the city charter, or in any way over- ride H? They certainly do not. A. careful reading of the ordinances will that .they do not in any way deal with schools under the juris- diction of a .city, or of those which are partly comprised in the same as the schools in the Lethbridge district. Any reference to the schools in the ast named category is carefully avoided, proving that the school ordin. ances are In no way intended to con- lict with the provisions laid down in be city charter. Ipso facto this is a clear case allowing the charter to have 1 sway. Consequently, it Is definite- proved that any candidate not pos- sessing, the qualifications distinctly laid down is not eligible for a, school H would be advisable here to state that the insertion "of the Latin mu- tatis mutandis (with the necessary changes) in the school trustee clause refers to alterations such as "alder- man" to "school a-nd gives force to tho bearing of the clause, The Herald maintains the stand it has taken with regard to the particu- i lar candidature for the school trustee- ship. In placing his position before the ratepayers we were entirely guid- ed by the interests of the public, and we repudiate anything of personality in 'the-matter.

For the Hatch administration has been a _ business success. ..Look about on every notice of the evi- dences of muiiicipal progress, 'and then deny 'th'e above statement. .When Mayor Hatch was elected last year he was .elcctcxl on a program of progress.

Some times he threw a little wild, however many'of these offerings finding theii way to the press box where the dope- Sters were kept in mortal fear lest a premature funeral should cast gloom over the glad event. However, the big fellow heaved the game through, and came out feeling hale and hardy. A, goodly number of spectators came hoping that "Chief" Bender would work, but were disappointed when His Umps announced that a bum leg would keep him out of the game for the day at least. If there is one of the lesser satel- lites who should receive the usual automobile donation is it big Bill Mac. He had the high sign on all the curves, and made five safeties in five up. It was some swell batting, arid we look for a call to the Majors for the big fellow yet. All he lacks is experience in fast company. Altogether the big game'was one fine exposition of how municipal base- ball can be and the vast, as- semblage of-infuriated fans cannot be blamed if they went dippy at times. However, we just' wish to announce further that the official scores 'will be doped out on Monday night by about seven o'clock.
