They arc butchering in cold blood the subjects of world powers with a "what-are-you-going-to-do- The rebellion started months ago, auoul-il" air. There seems to be and lias landed nowhere yet. no end in sight. The powers look to the United Slates to keep a watchful eye over the southern repub- lic. President "Wilson took council with his ad- visers at the first and said, "Let them light it out. They will soon gel tired of it, reach some agree- ment, and Mexico will settle down to peace and prosperity, foreigners will he safe, and foreign Capital in Mexico will no longer he in jeopardy." To hasten the lime, President Wilson raised Ihe embargo on arms entering Mexico. He evi- Vlcnily considered that, if the Mexicans were go- ing to fight at all, he might as well innke it easy 7for lliem; they would'get the fire out of their blood the NVe admire President Wilson as a man and as a president, bnl, in baseball parlance, this Bccins lo be one time when lie was "outguessed." 11 looks as if if were about time for Uncle Snm lo step in and act. Chastisement is often the only remedy for Ihe child that persists in be- ing haughty. The Ben ton incidcnl seems to afford Ihe ex- cuse. And when Uncle Sam is about it, he ought never lo quit unlil he out the whole of Ihe old guard of trouble makers. BOTH SIDES OF THE METER QUESTION. 1 L'DGLN'G by the number of questions heard tin Ihe streets and propounded through Ihe by citizens, Ihe commissioners would do fo educate the people somewhat more freely on Ihe details of Hie waler meter proposal. For, if the bylaw were to be submitted tomorrow, we feel quite ccrlain in our own mind Ihat it would be defeated The public wants to know bolli sides I question. Here nrr: a few questions heard by Ihe i Ilcrald Ihat would bear answering: Will mcfcr rcnlal be charged, and if so, how much per month? How much will meter reading cost annually? How much does a mclcr cost, installed ready jfor service? W'ill the waler supplied be free of sill and >nud? If hoi, will the muddy water, which pre- vails in llic spring clog the meters? What will be the rale per 1000 gallons to the Jkvorkingmim with the ordinary conveniences in ]i four or five roomed collage? How much waler .will he get daily-if.h.e pays (he same water rale at present? What will the interest on (he outlay for mel- fcrs amounl lo annually? These ore questions nslfcd'by Ihose more or Jess opposed (o melers.The Herald frankly slates {that they should be answered (jircci -by llie-com- fciissioncrs. There are many things to be said in favor of he meters, and Hie commissioners therefore should, at the same time, tell the people: How long the present pumping capacity would be sufficient, i.e., up lo what population, f meters were installed? What the estimated total ouilny would be lo jring the outlay up lo requirements, if the flat rate were continued in force. What probable saving-ill the cost of operat- ing the waterworks system could be effected bj metering .all the water, thereby eliminating waste and leakage. The public of course understands that water rates must be high enough lo meet the cost ol operating the system. If meters will reduce op crating and maintenance cost, it naturally fol- lows that the rates could undergo a decrease. confess thai we do not know the answers lo the above questions ourselves, and vve are sure Hie general public does not. Till they are answer- ed we cannot take a stnnd either for or against. The people Want the answers as much as we do, and we feel satisfied that the commissioners will be only too anxious to please in this particular.. We have for sale a number of the best horses ever brought into Alberta. The following pedigrees of imported stallions speak for themselves: Pedigree of the Hackney Stallion, Nanton Astonishment, 9SS4 GROWING APPLES. IT was only last summer thai the Herald was soundly raled by a.local contemporary, 'for giving publicity lo the fact that apples would be successfully grown in commercial quantities in this districl. Anyone who was so unwise as fo even suggest such a thing years ago, counted himself lucky if he was not regarded ns a luna- tic. The same conditions were prevalent in North Dakota nol.so very long'ago, yel fodr.y they are growing apples in commercial quanti- ties in this stale, and making money at it. The Calgary Herald, in ils editorial column of Wed- nesday gives Ihe infant industry a worthy and deserved boost as follows: "If there is any serious drawback at all it is the frequency of strong winds, which would have a tendency to injure both blossom anc fruit, to say nothing of damage that might he done to trees. "However, Hie wind question is only an in difficulty lo be overcome. They arc growing apples today on Hie Dominion cxperi menial farm at Lethbridge, while at Magratl there are several young orchards bearing fruit As yet nothing wonderful has been accomplish cd, but the farmers are learning, and with eacl experiment coming nearer flip. goal. So soon a right varieties for the dislrict have been dis covered other difficulties will disappear, Then we will have frnil of our own growing.'1 The difficulties incidenlal fo the establish ment of the industry in Dakota were overcome and there is as good an onllook in Alberla where!
