The action token at last week's meeting towards securing the incorporation of Lethbridge as a city is to be commended, tt means more than providing us with classification in the same column as Calgary and Edmonton Once we become a city prestige is added. Outsiders are then convinced that Lethbridge is growing. We have been a town long enough and if wo remained one, the opinion might easily be formed that we hadn't grown eiiouch to be anything else. As towns go, we overshadow every other town in Alberta. We have outgrown town clothes. Lethbridge is big enough and is sufficiently certain of its future growth to don the garb of a city and strut about in the coinpiny of Calgary and Edmonton. We are now the hub of Southern Alberta but when we become a city the hub will look bigger in the eyes of the people who are turning to tin-West for location in the near future, than we do now. What is our population? We never amounted to much in guessing contests a3 to the number of EDITORIAL NOTES The Bulletin is keeping with Edmonton's growth.

With confidence in the future of the town, the trustees erected a building capable of accomodating a constantly growing school population. While only two rooms are occupied now; in a year's time, it is safe to saw the other two rooms will be tilled with scholars, too. A street sprinkler seems to be required more in Lethbridge in the winter than in an eastern city in the summer months. The faith that our people have in Lethbridge is evidenced by the prejvirations that are being made to invest large sums of money in business blocks.

Tin-re is nothing slow about the newspapers in the Kootenays.

We paid our tribute to tho Cranbrook Herald last week, and since, we have lieeu favored with copies of the other pajjers and, like the Herald annual, they make us admire the enterprise of the feltaws in the mountains.

The town council would, we bi lieve, meet with the approval of the citizens if it jiassed a bylaw confin ing the Chinese lanndries within certain boundaries. To our mind, tho Celestials should not be allowed to carry on business on residential streets. At the present time the "washeo" men have their signs hanging out on streets thut are not in the business district at all. This is objectionable in many ways, and certainly lessens the value and attractiveness of property in local ities where considerable money has A Lutheran Pastor. Rev, J.' Silluck, Lutheran pastor, with headquarters at Medicine Hat, was in town Sunday and Monday. He spent two weeks at the Estonian settlement, twenty miles west of here. In a talk with the Herald he said that he found these Russian people, who settled there two years ago, flourishing. They were making money and improving their farms. He told of one man ... . . who had built a frame house, 50 ft. mail on the new morning train to long by 2(5 ft. wide, and of another the south.
