Lcilibriilge is not dead. It has a large pay roll, from tljc miners aud other industries, arid is a constantly growing wholesale centre.' Lcth- bridge has some unemployed due to the seasoii, bul has ho hiui- drcds of unemployed sucli us tire found mother, fi.ties, .even in Alberta, is needed is the of .tlw l.cthbrulgi% spirit. It counts and does not drive men ,tp' other cities to do business. There, is no city in Canada but is experiencing the touch of hard times, and Lellibridgc in almost every respect is (freer from the unemployment caused by a liick'bf work in fu" lories running on half time. Lethbridge. is.progressing slowly in some respects, perhaps, but substantially, arid lias the resources to make it a city of first importance years to come. SASr tio -ff THE CITY AND UNPAID TAXES. M AYOR HARDIE is quite rifiht in urging upon cfelinquent tax- payers the necessity of an early settlement of accounts with the city. The'banks advance money security of uncol- lecfc'd taxes and inroffering (he security, tfaelcmc authorities do so with the confidence that the their obliga- tions to the ciiy. If it Is necessary to enforce a sale, the onus 'will reit'entirely with those who arrears. It is no doubt a difficult matter to raise the money for taxes in these times of especially when people have a lot.of other liability .which is 'pressing, but two "years of grace is certainly fair and the city has even" right to expect that the money will be forth- coming in order to meet the demands of .the bank. The city is paying heavy interest at the bank on the money advanced on the strength of unpaid.taxes, arid-.should it run much longer it is not difficult to see that a goodly portion of. the taxes will be lost. The "mayor should have the support of the ratepayers as a whole in any step necessary to enforce collection.- r SASKATCHEWAN'S NEW LEGISLATION. is again to the fore advanced legisla- tion. It is going to loan money lo fanners. It will be re- membered that that province sent a commission to Europe to investigate the system in'operation in Gcrnnmy, France and Aus- tria. On their return the commissioners submitted a report and upon this report-the government is basing the legislation. -The bill as presented provides that: Any resident of the province, who associates himself with nine other persons, to form n local group, miiy join the associar lion. He must apply for a first mortgage loan on farm pay a membership fee of returnable if no loan is granted. The association formed by the aggregatiori-.of local groups will be. administered by three.commissioners, appointed by the lieu- teniinl-governor in council, One member, ouly of this board wilj be employed on a permanent salary, the" others will simply 'be reimbursed whatever expenses they may the the association. There, will also be an advisory board of fifleesi persons, three-to be appointed by the goverrinieril, one ca'cli by the- following University, of the provincial department of agriculture, tire Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association, the Union of Rural Municipalities, the'pro- vincial Winter Fair Board, and the Convention of Societies, and six by ballot of the association: Some outstanding features of the new.'Organization'are that it will not profit, although a reserve fund created, that the government will guarantee "principal and inter- est of bonds issued for an amount lo be determined on from lime lo time, that members of Hit association will be liable for indebt- edness to the'extent'of-oOper cent, in their'borrowings', and that borrowers-may pay olf their loans prior to" the Espira- tion of their mortgages if they so desire. Loans will not be made in respect to more than 40 per cent! of the value of farm property and the commissioners will be the valuators. No loan will be for less thnn 15 years or more..ihan 35, and all loans will be repayable in equal annual or semi-annjia: instalments of principal and interest. It islprqyjiled, as lo the foregoing relalibn, thafon notice or a bonus of three months' interest, any member may pay-an" amount toward the discharge of his loan in excess of the regular payment. "He-will not, however, in consideration of having macle an excess payment he allowed to rjiisS.makiu'g'Dajiiicnts on the subsequent regular p'aymcnts fall JJifi1."

VER-KNOCKING is as dangerous to the welfare of the coun- try, or perhaps even more so, than over-boosting. The plain '.truth nbout conditions is "probably the hnppy_ medium between ;these two extremes, and in Hie end does more real good than over-boosting. But the truth can be told in two ways. One might say thai business was good, but say ifin'such a glum way a stranger would very much doubt "the veracity of the state- ment. Then it might also be made to .convey an.entirely opposite impression by being stretched into nn .altogether too optimislic phrasing. The former manner of or tone might'be called over-knocking, and the latter over-boosting, although it is a hard matter to make a definite discrimination. There can be no doubt that Southern Albif ia has, in the past, Iwcn boosled to the limit, but theie is plenty that she ,is suffering at present from a chronic habit of knocking on the of ccrlain men, especially those who travel throughout the 'district, and Lelhhridge. the brunt; The extent of the ordinary traveller's influence is remarkable. It is very apparent that in the smalleY towns regarding Lelb-, bridge, is that it is "dead." That is an absolute untruth, but for "the sake'of argument let us grant that business is at least quiet. When a merchant in one of the- smaller .'town's adjacent to Leth-, -bridge asks-the question, "How are things in nnd the tras-eller replies, ''Everything's what is his conclusion? How much better it would be to reply: are rather quiet, but they arc belter than in most of. cities, and we liave'notliing to grumble about." It would be'the truth, told in a; bright way, entirely different impression than the former remark. v. Onc'mercliani.iii-a small town to the north of Lelhbridge is actually known to have driven several hundred dollars worth of trade this city by a remark of this nature. A farmer near the town 'came in to lake the! train to Lethbridge to purchase his winter's supply of clothing" and supplies. He had seven cliitd- i'ower be .accorded-to the association: to borrow, Mo IriTiothecale its-real and personal ciillurists. 11 may also invest disposable by the same in nny chartered investing in. sucli securiiics.'or ways as a trust company is permitted to'lend trust funds' in its hands, or by -the purchasing of its Borrowers'from the association must devote the funds so raised to permanent iniprovemcnt of their properties, or tq'pro- duclive purposes with il.
