THIS city's industrial building is some.slruclure; bill the HQWS of its existciicc hasn't apparently reached Calgary yet. The ratepayers of that city recently to'civel aiijnihis: trial building, and the newspapers are out with the choi tic' that ft is the its kind in Canada. .Nothing sort, .te'h- jridge luis nn industrial .building only one.storey short of being as large as Hie proposed Calgary building, it is considerably jcy'oml the proposed stage. :Not only has an trial building with space already let to manufacturers, but others ire' in negotiation with, the iiuhistri.al ioiiuuissioper- for space, and it is safe guessing that Ihe Lellihridge industrial building will be a veritable hive, of busy industry before the Calgary bjiild- ing is much beyond llic foundation stage. Calgary has one .juess coming about priority in industrial buildings. THE CITY'S.

It is riot to" the'credit of a'cily to have mayor conliriuaily.on iu's knees lo'-the bankers praying for iconsideration.'and that is practically the situation in Lelhbridge: !Tliereis a very large amount of 1913 taxes outstanding' and if it vere paid the the bank would be much more pleas- ant.- -It may little pinching.fcrnicct ihe tax bill, but the pinching is worth while if.it iielps to place, our city in a posilicri it is free from interest charges.

Lelhbridge is in.quile as good position sis any i other city in the west, and to keep il-lliat should be the am- ibilion of 'every patriotic ratepayer.

The move will be welcomed by the farmer who the advantage of wider markets! The removal of the duty is not voluntary on Ihe part of the government. It comes as 'ja result of pressure from the agricultural interests of the Canad- ian West. TVo years ago, in tlic: campaign of 1911, free wheat and other free products.were denounced. .Free wheat would be of no advantage lo this country.. The price would be reduced in- stead of advanced.
