A Givic Gazette f-pHE suggestion has been made that _l provision should' be made In the new city charter .for, the publication monthly or semi-monthly of a Civic Gazette. It, is considered by ;some that some such innovation ii in connection with commis- sion form of government. There can be no doubt that a Civic Gazette containing statements of the work and expenditure of all civic de- partments from month to month would tend to create more interest in things municipal. At present the supply of interest seems to be confined to, the month preceding elections, and this is not conducive to the general welfare of the city. It is charged that the cal newspapers publish only the sensa- tional or more outstanding items df news having its origin at the city and that the ratepayers are not able to follow tlie city's municipal activities as- they should be followed. "Others-cities having municipal gov- ernment publish Civic Gazettes. Still cithers, dp not on cir- cumstances. In a large city where, there is a mass of detail which the local dailies overlook, a Civic Gazette, seems to be a necessity. But Lethbrldge can hardly consider itEelC in that class.

All which description goes to prove that the writer has not visited Sunny i Alberta. For if he did'he would re- cover from the delusion, common to most people in the motherland, that Canada throughout Its length niid breadth is enshrouded in snow and ice during the period of winter. Here, when-we have just passed the winter solstice, we are enjoying sunshine and warmth which must make our climate the envy of those less advantageously placed; One-has to come west to discover the Rlylcfa of Canada.

In this respect it ean truly said linn NIB appellation of "Our Lady cf! Ihe Snows" given to the Dominion has acted as a detriment in keeping many from settling In. Canada.
