Hardly necessary to ex- plain that the above is from Bob Rog- ers. U is about on a par, in point of veracity, with that gentleman's claim to have settled the coal strike a year ago. Expectation TODAY the ratepayers of the city have been masters of the sltua. tian. The preliminary skir- mishes were over on Saturday, and the .battle has been centred round the polling-booths. Whatever the results may be the die has been cast, and by the decisions of the majority the citi-; will have to stand. Whatever the personnel or" the ne'w I council, the ratepayers must remem- ber their pre-election pledges, and watch carefully that these are carried out. In this matter there is one thing in which the various candidates have been unanimous. It is on the most vital- with which the citizens of Lethbridge are at the present con- cerned. This is the industrial policy. It has been clearly defined, and on whomsoever elected the responsibility rests of placing the city on tho Foot- ing-it should fittingly occupy. The present year has been one of big advertisement for Lethbridge, and Ir. is up to the men of the new council to see that every ounce of the advan- tage derived Is turned into full ac- count. We have had the promise, and will av-ait the fulfilment. o far as the campaign has been conducted by the different candidates it has been devoid of any acrimony, or any personalities. The prospective members of the new council "have been courteous and fair to one another. This augurs one satisfaction, thi those elected will pull together in on interest, that of the city of Letl bridge. In this expectation there at least one reason for gratificatioi We can only trust that the men hes fitted for carrying out the industria program will be "elected. Well Rather (Grain Growers Guide) Premier Dorden has announced his intention of appointing six additional Seatcrs to represent the prairie pro- vinces. If the new Senators are to be rout those from Sas- katchewan and Alberta at least should be men who are in favor o freer trade and wider markets. Wil the premier appoint such men, will the honors and the salaries go to defeated candidates lor the Commons and party heelers? The Market Question 0 MATTER who may be elected sidered a failure. Why- it should b< so one can hardly understand, bu nevertheless'the fact remains. It would appear that if a market i established iii Lethbridge there wouk NO MATT today to carry on ihe adminis- tration of the city for the next year, they will have to consider the demand for a local market to pro- vide an avenue through which the farmers in the surrounding district can dispose of their produce, and through which the consumers can be assured of a supply of fresh stuffs at all times of the. year. food The market Question has received a great deal cf consideration during the past year, and it appears as if the time for action hag arrived. That a market is a necessity is con- ceded. The demand that the-farmers have to he arrangements made for a commission house in conjunction With irrigated land all through the immediate vicinity of the city, it is likely that the amount of produce brought to the market after the insti- tution had become established would be greater than the local demand would warrant. What to do with the surplus would be the question. It' a commission bouse In charge of wide-awake market master were made a part of the market scheme, it take up mixed, farming makes it ne-j.would be possible to find a market in cessary from their point of view. The increasing cost ol" living results in a similar demand from the consumers. In considering the ciuestion, how- A ever, the council will have .to take Cognizance of the success or failure 3] f such institutions in other western There is plainly a difference jugtween the east .lyul the west in .Uhg particular. In Calgary, with over population, tho market is con- mh'ei __________ Libel .the mining camps to .the west where all such produce is shipped in from outside points. The demand would be enormous. Prices would be good, and it would appear as it" the fa would then lose little time in arrang- ing to supply just what the market required. But at the present time, a purely local1.market would likely die the natural death of the Calgary in- stitution. S.

If these courses arc follow- ed there will be a saving of any grumblings and dissatisfaction dis- cussed at street corners. Ratepayers' associations should not be allowed to die, and to be resurrect- ed only at election time, no matter what the nature of tlie election may eventually be. Let them at all times be live institutions, thoroughly organ- ized, and meeting at stated periodical intervals to discuss matters which are brought before the ratepayers.

The poiu't insisted on with most em- phasis by the Minister of .Municipalit- ies, in discussing the new Rural .Mini! cipalitUs Act, is that the matter of ex- penditure and taxes is entirely depend- ent on the people of the immicipalitle: themselves. It is for them to decide how much money they shall speud, it any, and the rate of taxation, not in any case to exceed ten mills, is de- pendent solely on that expenditure. If a new road is to be made, a cul- vert'put in, or any other public provement decided on, the cost easily ascertainable. The government will supply expert help, if asked for, aud the ratepayers know in ad- vance exactly how much it is going to coat them in the line of taxes. The notion that the act is an unholy scheme on the part of a, debt-ridde-n government to unload its responsibil- ities and expenditures upon the peo- ple of the1 municipalities is about as far from the mark as" could possibly je imagined. The new system cf rural municipal- ties will be a distinct.aid self- government, and a benefit to such dia .rtcts as vote to organize, but no dis- trict need so organize unless it wants .o.

The two ideas do not appear reconcilable to the usual imperialistic advocate, such as we have in this country. It is because they cannot reconcile these two ideas that the leaders of Conservatism in Canada claim to be the true imperialists in this country. The attitude they adopt is that the in- terests of the Dominion must always lie subordinate to those of the Em- pire, that Canndianism must, efface it- self in the presence of imperialism.

Origin, of Ancient Phrase During the last of the eighteenth century in England corruption was notorious.
