Now if he could only move them all (o Manitoba the issue of'the'next election would he settled in advance. EEKS AGO, before there eiren any talk of elections, the Herald wrote a of articlta on what we considered to lie the ideal commission to elect to govern the city of Lethbridge for the next few years. In those articles 'we pointed out first of all tliu need of greater economy in the administration of affairs, and then showed how economy might be practiced by appointing men to the commissioner-ships who, could. combine the positions ij{ commissioner a'nd superintendent, thus doing away, for a nuin- of years at least, with an "arm chair" commissioner over a superintendent who would do the work. This, we contended, was 1he proper arrangement iri the public, and public utilities departments. Judging ironi the results of the elections last week, the rate- payers of the .city .agreed with for.' they elected A. M. Grace and Arthur Reid la lake charge of works and utilities respectively. By their vote; i we' bellevep (he people- demanded that Mr. Grace act as city 'engineer and Mr. general superintendent of the city's utilities.

And right here we wish to itate' that economy can be prac- ticed in other departments than itf'.lhe'two mentioned. There is well defined feeling among ratepayers the city it over- manned; either that, or is not tnanned to the beat advan- tage. So the Herald stands, as it has stood throughout the cam- paign, for economical administration by the new commission, this to be effected by the commissioners themselves taking off their coats arid doing some 'of the work which might be left (o subordinates..
