"We agree with President Hoose- delt that the workers should own a far greater shave of the wealth they produce. But 'what- does mean by "steady efforts in many different di- rections" ins order that the workers shall secure this greater share of the wealth which -they produce? Does he mean industrial trade unionism? Does he mean political action? In fact does he himself know what he means?

Take for instance if applications were" ask- ed for the position of city engineer and three Britishers, an American and a Belgian responded and in each case they same salaryf but- in the case' of the American and the Belgian their qualifications were far advance of the Britishers, would you consider it wise appoint a Britisher merely because he was a Britisher? Not by a long shot. We want the best men. However a man who earns his livlihood in Canada ought to be broad enough and wise enough, to become a Canadian. A man ought to be a citizen of the country he earns his bread and butter in. Davie King's resolutions are al right though in the case of a City Engineer I believe he is entitled to bigger" salary than the- secretary-trea- is if he is a good man Wnat most people objected to in the salary increase was the thumping big advances made at thfe first crack out of the box.

He moved the followirg- resolutions at a meeting of tho City Council this this Council do rescind'the "increase of per annum granted to Secretary-Treasurer Robinson by the iate-Council, and reduce his sal- ary per annum, as previous ly paid. 2. That this Council consider the necessity of reducing the salary of 'Engineer Arnold on the ground that a building inspector has been appoint ed at a salary of S73 per month to do 'work, formerly done bV the city engineer. In view of this fact it is justified in reducing his salary to per annum. BRITISH SUBJECTS ONLY 3. That this council grant no pub- lic .appointment until such position has been advertised so as to give each' one a fair chance of competing, and that no person hold a public of- fice unless he. is-'a-British subject. That engineers and other officials be instructed to employ English-speak ing workmen in preference to foreign- .ers. _ 5. That the person or persons who prepared, the voters' list for the ia'st municipal Selections be called upon to that workers vest: in 'the' tools and instruments by which all work is carried sounds like the chimerical idea of the parlor socialist. Imagine the locomotive engineer investing his savings in" the thousandth part of a locomotive. Im- agine the workers in a cotton mill or the lines suggested by J. W. McNicol. This plan of increasing the salaries by'seven hundred dollars to an-am- ount as high as the city can .afford to pay for some years to come is non- sense and should be --treated as such. Would any concern advance the sal- ary of one of its servants by seven hundred dollars in one slap. >Tot by a hundred jugfuls. And again would any concern give a man a bigger in- crease than he asked? Not bj ten thousand jugfuls. Aid. Hatch's water saving policy should be put into practice at once.

In such cases the action of Milbura's Heart-and Kerve_Pills the heart, rearing its'normal beat and imparting tone to the centres, is, beyond all question, icai- vellous.

Even if the value were there, why should an employee invest his savings he has stocks over which he has no control in any way and of whose returns the employers .and di- rectors shall" be the sole judges.

OUR HOTEL ACCOMMODATION Editor Herald, Sir: The sleeping problem is a difficult one presenting itself for so- Jution to the people of iethbridge. What are we to do with, men we bring in, asks the land agent? What shall we' do with the many people coming into ihe country who are .seeking to choose Jtands on which -to settle, asks'the man who is inter- ested in'the development of our city and the rich surrounding district. The hotels--are providing excellent .service but their accommodation is placing- cots along the corridors-and, .turning'the sitting and commercial rooms into sleeping apartments, they still must refuse many applications. To arrive in a city intending to s-cay-a'Tiight or so, 'and to find little or no hospitality does not convey a very decided impression of a peo- ple's-ability to cope "with the re- quirements of- {he public, and it does not sound like Lethbridge to let a man -wander from place to place in> search of-somewhere to lay his-head- The 0.
