The Inrtivlditttl who Is tied to his labor by the tlmo Indloatcd by the hands of tile clock should not on this account bo prevented from presenting himself nt the poUlns booth. The present ot)nstructlon of tlmo is an (n-Justice to the worklnsniani nnd now A Good Beginning THE PKBSKNT occupier of the iiiagi.sterial chair, we are Klad to note, has a full sense cf the dignity of his office, and of the court over which he presides. Witnesses looli for protection to the bench, and in promptly fining the individual who sc far forgot himself as to publicly accuse a man. who was Blvins his sworn testimony, of lying, the magistrate showed that he wag alive to his responsibilities, and fully recognized the necessity of order and decorum in a court of justice. Ills observations with regard to the uncalled for remarlis made by persons in the body of the court are likewise to be applauded, it is only right and litllng that the almosnlUTo of u.e court room should not be regarded as that of a theatre where men are at liberty to freely express their feelings. It is essential that the sanctity and solemnity of the law should be maintained. Particularly so in the case of the nature which presented ItseH, 11 was no idle cause calling for anything in the way of levity. The matter lie-fere the court was one seriously affecting the morals of the city, and required to be met and denit with in a serious spirit. His Worship used the right discrimination In dealing between keepers and inmates. It may be he was right In his expression of sympathy, for, undoubtedly, the former are the worst offenders, and, if there is anything in the way of apportioning the despic-ableness of tlie conduct of the parties arraigned, the major porticu belongs to those who use their frail sisters for purposes of gain. Whatever powers he possessed, the new magistrate judiciously used them, and with it the serious view he took cf the proceedings will serve to emphasize the infamy of It all. The chief of police is showing a wise activity, and with prosecutions and fitting sentences we trust that the present evil will be shortlived. The Overhead Bridge Question II'' THE CITY Is ordered by the llailway Commission to cease using the level crossing on Thirteenth street for street cars, it will teach the people of Lethbrldge a lesson which, to use a vernacular expression, "has been coming to Ihem." Incidentally it will force the city of I-ethbridge to start proceedings with the e'nd in view to construct a subway �t the crossing In (lueslion, and it the city has to take that action it will mean that the ratepayers will be com-pellod to pay a goodly proportion of the cost of such a structure. In saying that the people of Lethbrldge will be taught a lesson if the .Ttallway Commission decides against the level crossing being continued, the Herald simply means that the ratepayers, when the tjuestion of �building tlie overhead bridge and pay. ing half the cost, amounting to some 500,000, was before thcra, took little cr no Interest, rclse of the franchise at municipal i olections ought to receive serious attention. It cannot but appear an anomaly that men should be allowed the lirivilege of voting at tiHlernl olections on issues which effect the whole country, and yet bo �debarred from having a s�y with regard to their own domos-. tic legislation. It is contrary to tho true democratic spirit, and not in accordance 'with �modern reform that there should be taxation without representation. It Js not necessary to argue the point that tenants are not taxpayers In the ;mcnt of fine Califoniia Wines.
