J OUR POINT OF VIEW Lethbridge is worth boosting. Keep at it. Medicine Hat is discarding the volunteer fire brigade. It wilt be a big city some daj\ The sight of snow was somewhat of a novelty but it was welconia. It should help anchor the top soil and give the winter wheat a much needed covering. By all means let the council immediately tackle the solution of the cheap power problem. The 600-barrel mill is well worth going after, and then there are others to follow. Fifteen Dollar Power IF THE CITY IS ABLE to produce fifteen dollar, power then. it can safely be said the first steps will be laid towards a successful industrial �policy tending in its expansion to bring about the fondest anticipations made "with regard to the future of Lethbridge. That this is able to tie accomplished is stated 'by men who are credited with the qualifications for knowing what they are talking about.. Now it is evident that all energies must be bent towards the means for Justifying the declaration. When this is reallz- little doubt, we can rightly assume the  confidence which the prospect warrants/'' "Fifteen dollar power" is the slogan whicb the city should make it possible to adopt. It is up to the to concentrate its attention on the acquiring of this extremely important asset for converting the dreams of the past -iutu the realization of the future. Much is expected from the new mayor and council, and now more than at any time it will be 'by their works that they will be judged by those who have given them their confidence, la this we sincerely trust there is no It doesn't look as if that blow out on "Ulster day" has had a very bad effect on the Asquith government. The Asquith government is stronger today than it has been for many a month. The yarns being sent.out by cable about the Welsh mines losing big orders owing to the price of coal will bear investigation. It looks like a move in the Interest of capitalists tc lower wages. The Bob Rogers organ in Calgary has a daily sneer at the training ships, the Rainbow and Niobe, forgetting that the "old tubs" as it dubs them, were sold to Canada by; the motherland. Surely such lcyal people wouldn't insinuate for a. moment that the motherland would deliberately defraud a colony. Fie! Let us Save fifteen dollar power. It means industries. It looks as if the United States judiciary is imore lenient to dynamite fiends than the laity who compose the jury. "  ". - .....� If 'Mr. Borden made a frame up with Bona;  La',w>to have the food of Britishers ta.\gt} in exchange for an exclusive ".market for some of Britain's products;^ placed'an even lower estimate.'Op ^Canadian loyalty than ho does in: bis* tftind>out naval policy. ^ To read .the. Macleod papers one would thinlc that that town filled the large plac*,in the thoughts of the people ofv^hbridge. It is flattering to Maqleoft;-. lethbrldge,"wishe^Mi^j-leodatt'possible growth and pfpsp^rr-ity, bfit we are not wasting sl��p'. regarding the good old town as a dangerous competitor. The Calgary Herald is lacking In memory. It gives the Borden government credit for the expeditious handling of the wheat crop instead of the C. P. R., and blames the Laurier government for past blockades. The worst blockade in the history of the west occurred under the Borden government and.all the relief forthcoming was advice from G. E. Foster to the farmers, telling them to build more granaries. The Borden government had nothing to do with handling the grain. If there is any credit aside from the transportation^ companies it is coming to the newspapers. BETWIXT AND BETWEEN ad, and of that there can be very disappointment ahead. Prison and Asylum Congestion THE REPORT that the jails and asylums of the province are. ser-^ iously over-crowded makes Very bad reading, but it is. a question,^whether it should be regarded as particularly, alarming. It requires to be shown, whether the number of criminals and insane are out of proportion to the population 'before the matter becomes exactly disquieting. 'The province has received a considerable addition in the way of immigrants, and with this influx crime and physical afflictions :are bound to go .up. It is well that the numbers should be exactly estimated, and compared with the actual number of .population. This will be of muf affaira pot only pre-.1; vailedi but owing^to  unusual-, and. ad-*f averse "circumstances became greatly 's accentuated." . .... -; � ;;.  ' 'i1 V^jth'-'regiard to  the policy, of muni-t^clpaJtties which, in the matter of ne-'/gatlating' their'(bonds/ have1''put off the/evil day," the following anticlpa- ^aV^e'.pVevailinfc price;; notwitbstand-^jirngstnat'; tMB appeared to be'very low. munlclpaUtleir have declined all tenders-in the hope that better prices would prevail a little later on. Unfortunately, the period of tight money and adverse financial conditions has been of such duration that these municipalities who have put off the .evil, day,-so to speak, have found themselves, confronted with a very serious task of municipal financing. -The manner in which some municipalities have endeavored to obtain relief .has been through the flotation of short term treasury certificates, ranging from three months to a year. Of course a considerably higher rate of interest had to be paid on these by. the Municipality than the rate which the debentures themselves bore. The municipalities as a rule, however, were satisfied to pay this temporarily, hoping - and believing that conditions would right themselves before the expiration of their temporary loan, and that they would then be able, to sell their definitive bonds to sufficiently better advantage to more than offset the bigh rate pf interest 'which they were compelled to pay for a short time. The situation now, as far as these municipalities are concerned, is that in a number of cases these short . term bills are' soon maturing and, as the money market, far from Improv ing, has gone from bad to worse, (hey are confronted with a very difficult problem. Possibly many, of them, un less they can arrange otherwise, will have |o sell their bonds at the market :price, tha,t is to say, whatever they will bring." "There is some consolation in. the above that we, like many other muni .oipallties. have been the victims of .circumstances. There, is not much hope given to any Immediate improve ment in the bond market. In the,' meanwhile a wise entrenchment, except in what is absolutely essential for .Improving our position, will have to be pursued.. When, through a successful industrial policy, the city will be set on suoh a footing as to arrest general attention our debentures will have no need to eo tensing. The gink who "writes Spectator Shafts in the Mael?braw curler lad, who made the grade when he stood for re-election, will likely stick to his old ship, the works and property committee. Aid. Aird is there, too, when it comes to handling that business. Doc promises to be on the job as chairman of the Health Department, and war on the little bugs and germs that are supposed to -Infest the water supply. Then there is Bill McCambly. He has a red hot clue, for new industries, and it is rumored that a new cabinet position may be created for his particular benefit, which may be called the publicity and new industries committee. Well, he's big enough to fill the bill. Aid. Skeith always had an eye to beauty, so it is likely he will be kept busy making the grass grow on Henderson Park. Aid. Williamson, member for North LethbTidge, Is likely to hold down a new chair this year, and light, waterworks and street railways may be his, Particularly North Lethbrldge claims to be the centre of the street car population. License and police, and markets and publicity are the only seats left, and it looks as if Donald McNabb will have to shoulder the whole load, which, being Scotch, he is well able to do. Of course, it's only a guess, but time will tell. � * � And now, just when a wave in favor of sanitation extraordinary in sweeping over this terrestlal iball, some unkind souls come along and pelt a helpless pair ot newlyweds with old, unsanitary, and microbe-infested dollar bills. That couldn't be called exactly" a healthy start. - l^hat Qthm He Didn't Want Much , (Saskatoon Phoenix) The Duke of Atholl. has spent quite a sum of'money endeavoring to prove that he is entitled to call himself the Earl of 'Oxford.' Not Hhat the new title meant anyti/ln.g'more to him in the way of wealth,; only as he 1b now only, Earl of Tullibardlne, Viscount Balquhldder, Lord ?alvenie, Earl of Strathtay, Karl of Strathardle, Viscount Gleualmond, Viscount Gleuhron. Lord.Strange of Knockyn, Lord Percy, Lord Murray of Stanley, and His Grace the Duke of Atholl, to say nothV ing of titles of less importance, he was tilled with an ambition to add another ducal title to: the list. He didn't get it. Baresford's Criticism (Brantford Expositor) Lord Charles Beresford touched the heart of the imperial naval defenoe question when he stated that the true policy for the overseas dominions to follow was to establish'fleets of light cruisers and auxiliaries for the defence of the trade route lineB, leaving to the mother country the 'building and maintenance of the heavier war vessels. He also points out that the world has gone dreadnought mad, ignoring all other elements of naval strength, and simply regarding the dreadnought as such. A Comparison (Manitoba Free PTess) The total amount of railway bonds carrying the guarantee of the province of Saskatchewan is $13,000,000. The total amount of railway bonds carrying the guarantee of the province of Manitoba is ?3.l,678,873. And yet the Saskatchewan government is represented in the Montreal Gazette, which makes no mention whatever of Manitoba in this connection, as having proved itself by its "wild guaranteeing" of railway bonds, unfit to be trusted with the management of the lands and natural resources. The comparison between the two totals Just cited is seen to be all the more remarkable when it is remembered that there is a much larger extent of Saskatchewan reimlrihg to be served by railways than of Manitoba. it. It looks as though there were something else besides a desire for the public'good behind the policy of these two dets/of. Southam papers on this question "of tax reform and land taxation. Often the Case "Where do all the people who have automobiles get \he money that is necessary to afford them?'.' "Many of theta don't,"-Chicago Re. cord Herald. What's the Reason? (Medicine Hat News) In Ontario the Southam papers are waging a hearty warfare on Sir James Whitney, the Conservative premier, because he is siow at taking hold of the tax reform movement, in fact refuses to entertain an Idea ot a possibility of need of reform. In Alberta, the Southam paners, the Calgary Herald. Eurnonton Journal and Lethbrldge News are trying to biunp lie .working of the single tax or iand tax system that has been adopted by the^c^inc6' The system in Alberta. is Yie'/,very thing the people of^Ontario ar*;$*m' orlng for and for yhich the Southam paper3 are flghtlne'even''to'the''.*pplnt' of removing the tffemjef-'from ;'tbe-leadership of the ,p&Kty. In Alberta a Liberal government has adopted'the svstem and gau its bumps for doing Top ManyTPrsllmlnaries "Can't you get any work?" asked a woman, of the tramp who had applied at the back door for food. "Yes, ma'am," he replied, "I was offered a steady job .by the man who lives down the road in that big white house." "That's Mr. Oatseed. What was the work?" � , ^ "He wanted me to get up at 4 in the morning, milk 17;cows, feed, water and rub down four Jiorses, clean the stables, and "then 'chop wood until it was time to begin the day's work."

"Yes, Indeed. I .had a nice little chat =wlth both of them." "And I presume you met all the out of town relatives?" "I think I did. In fact I'm almost sure i did.
