The electric department during the year tn'-creased the saleS of current over 10 percent, and the profit amounted to allbost $10,000. This to spite of the: fnct'tlmt the cost of labor increased; 15 percent, coal increased 19 percent and materials Increased 50 percent. The report indicates a healthy tone in the electric department, with the public increasing the consumption of current dne to''the more'^^prosperdus tims* and'thBfreater population. With the jjroiits^ from the system for the neidtYnine yeiui it is the department's intention to pay for the'new turbogenerator needed to increase the margin of safety at tJie power plant. The i street railway is not yet a money maker for Lethbridge, but by earning $838'''.42 more than was expended the system proved that it is better betyg operated than if the cars were left In the bams. The actual deficit for the year was $1300 less than bad been expected; so that patronago showed an Increase and revived tUol hope that with 5000 or more new popn- i lation the street i^iilway would v^y \ Its way. In that case Lethbridge \ ,wbuld be in a' Vei'y pleasing, position. All the utilities would be making money and a corresponding reduction in the tax rate would results CertaInly,.'Lethbridge has no reason to condemn municipal ownership. The net income of the Pennsylvania Il.R. dropped) twenty million dollars last year. . i The Sun estimates that Vancouver's total pay roll is now a million dollars a month. The Mexican Consul at Washington denies that his country has offered a naval base to Japan. Louis Kon, superintendent of immigration ftnd colonization for Manl-i toba, has' resigned. t f UTTING A CRIMP ^ AH PATRONAGE i In ezteadini; the range of authority OL the'War Purchasing Committee to departments of the government, ifhe government'is carrying out its Vledge to get rid of patronage. It is A; wonderful advance. When flie war b^aiTtEe old system of favoritism In' tiofatracts existed' In the militia dei-' 'pariment and the rottenness' and wast^uhiess ' exposed in connection 'with 891^6 ol these led to the creation ot'^he.'War purchasing commission. Its wbrk.'vifis confined to war purchases, ^t batined patronage and dealt. >vith every piiro^ase on its merits and coh-tequently^moniy was saved. Now. the 4 pperations of this commission are to ifcovor all government purchases. The lender syetem will be followed wher-pver poBsIblb and no purchases will made except through this commls-|l6n. Such a change is almost revolutionary. . The old id^a of political pap l� connection with purchases is given a^blaok eye.  The war purchasing com-!^lsplon la ma4f up of business men � who can be depended upon to see that '. ^aqaSa igets value for every'dollar it  ^pendB and' that it will only spend a ii^^llar when It, is necessary.
