OUR POINT Of VIEW Every one get busy and demonstrate that the figures 13 are magic, not hoc floo. THE WEEKLY HERALD Published every Wednesday in eight or more pages, and contains a summary of the news of the week, local and district .1 year in advance .........fl.50 3 months in advance SOc � months In advance........76c. The C.P.R. Land Scheme Now that the new council is-ready, for work let there be no delay in giving the McCanvb'ly industrial policy a try out. Lethbrldge made progrees in 1912 and it was progress In preparation for the development to come. This is u live, up-to-the-minute city, not an overgrown country town. The first to appreciate the fact are the visitors. . The new council should prepare for the extension of the water, sewe,- p.nd light to the Industrial sites at once. Let there be no delay. The first manufacturer looking for a site should he shcrwn that this city has the inducements In the shape of all the conveniences required. Mr. McCambly's policy of the city constructing the msfn track through the site should aiso be adopted. Well, to till the honor bright truth �ghoul It, those birthday honors were a cheap bunch, weren't, they? Mayor Haidie and his council should get the, vision' of opportunity and work together ;ior the building up of Lethbridge. �,.'� \ j .i. A. Ellis, M. P. P., is running for j mayor of Ottawa and so cook - sure does he feel of .election he refuses to i siutup the city. Wouldn't defeat give | Jimmy a jolt? i ��� - { One-Of the niftiest speoial numbera I which has ever been received at the | Herald office comes from the presses cf the Vernon News. There have been others as well printed, but for beautiful illustrations and the com prehenslveness of the territory cover ed, the Vernon Newt, baa scored a unique triumph. The whole Okanagan valley ig under a debt of obligation to the News. It has given every point the square deal and the kind of pub iiclty which counts. Wi& Think 1 A" CONSIDERING schemes .which are IjOund to aid in the derelop-ment-of this city, it would be wlse to revert to the announcement made toy the G�P. R.^regarding its new land :� iwlicy.' Considering that.the'oompany > owns so much land in the vicinity of ., Lethbridge, the. plan must neces-' sarily; mean a; great deal. That .is if the local authorities seek to -fur-. ther the advantages .by installing; the necessary facilities.treated on .in the /way of a IocalCmarket, coldstorage, packing plant, and Pa commission ftiavae.. -v ------.................1 ... ;  The project itself is one which redounds to the credit of the company, and shows that it is actuated by the i .best motives In seeking to advance .the development, which by its means . has been primarily brought about. It ' Is not too much to say that in many instances the West has suffered "from the hands of the speculators, and a wise check has been put on this by the proviso that the C. P. R. lands in future are to he sold only to bona-fide settlers. The absentee landlord has been the bane of other countries, and it is well that the evil should be prevented from gaining ground here. As a business scheme the policy is one of merit, The provision.for loaning two thousand dollars on the security of the land is a distinct help, and a direct furtherance of the object aimed at . Twenty years for repayment is a most generous concession. The policy likewise gains in utility in the fact that the company intends to exercise a discrimination and no persons are to be allowed to become purchasers unless they can convince the vendors that they possess the necessary qualifications--for making good. This implies a practical knowledge of farming. And this'Is as it should be, if the scheme is to have any value. The fact that the C. P. R. is able to add much "to the value of the purchases by extending railway facilities counts for a good deal. The .utility of such policies cannot be too much over-rated, and it only remains for centres in the vicinity of the-railway lands to fall in with the scheme, and to do what is In their power to further an extremely valuable undertaking by instituting arrangements for giving farmers market facilities near hotne.in:those things, such as meat, egga and butter, which enter, so largely Into every day consumption. Come to Canada (Montreal Herald) French naval circles have betfsi greatly agitated by the presence at Cherbourg during French naval manoeuvres of a. German vessel which would neither go away or corvc, into port. In Germany it is practically impossible for a- Frenchman to And a boarding house in the smaller cities^ so greatly do hoarding keepers suiter from visits from the local police, watching the possible spy. Life in Canada lias its advantages after all- Tire Cheap Things (Winnipeg Tribune* "The only .cheap things in Winnipeg are power and light." This was the opinion expressed by a citizen after sitting down with his wife and figuring out the chances of the bus-band's revenue meeting the family, expenses during the year 1913. Light and power are supplied largely by the public corporation, owned and  controlled by the citizens. Surely there is a lesson for the public in this fact. country conductors and engineers take immense p-ride in the fact that they are sober and fit, and that respectable workingmen generally" prefer to set an example of good conduct to those who are "weaker. CP. R. Land Policy , (Montreal Herald) There is the right sort of ring about the new land policy announced by the C. P. R. What the company proposes to do is.to prevent all future speculation in the seven million acres remain, ing in its possession. If the new scheme-the Insistence on. farmers �who are really farmers, and not' speculators in disguise, the encouragement for mixed farming as opposed 'to the mining of the land for the one crop- if this is worked out as it should be worked out then the west will have reason to bless the brain that gave the idea birth. Important Policies for the Year WITH THE BEGINNING of a new year, and the entry into office of a new city council, it is timely to consider in what particular endeavors the energies of the mt-ni- - hers of the hoard should -be directed. - In this there cannot he two minds, for It is generally accepted that, bo far as local Improvements are concerned, ' we have advanced to that stage in �which we can judiciously pause and confine out attentions to utijize these as assets in the mapping and carrying  out of a program! oxr the lines of bust, cness- development, � . '' In this respect two policies ",re already defined, and it is imperative that both should be immediately ad-v! tranced. They are a thorough indus-:> trial campaign, and the establishment v-a of facilities for encouraging, local t' trade in the way of agricultural pro-is^ - ducts. With regard to the former s?v �'�^fiere is not a doubt that we hare been k �;inarking time so far, in all truth- rely-�"rlflg on the virtues of our natural re- - sources Instead of making the most of them in the proper commercial- spirit. : "We1 nave discovered by now that we >:.:�-'-htfvV.perhaps relied too much "oh ex-. pVpentation, and have not given-'the ': realisation the minute attention which it deserved. i'jj^e tilou^htB of our civic council nave been engaged on strictly internal affairs calted'tfor by -the big program �jjof utilities -which the year gone by ffl'n,as seen come into successful operation.
