BOOST THE Y. M. C. A. MEMBERSHIP T m'iiBRIDGE CITIZENS are tak- ;iJ memberships in the Y. M. C. .i. at a rate that is commend- ibie Indeed. Although the building Has been open only a week there are already over two.hundred and twenty jnenibers., :Tbat is good. But that is only atxout.one-third of the number of members that tee association wants in the immediate future. To get more they putting on a "hustle" in j a few days by which a hundred or inore men will undertake to get three j new members each in one day. While.Jt is not advisable, that men back their memberships until that it is hoped that there will -be a general response to the appeal for members at that time.' The Y. M. C. A. stands for the best for the young men old hoys of this city. It is something- which they have been .wanting for. years and waiting for it to get started.

Sage's publicity motion may not amount to anything, but he certainly got his name up on the head of it. if the city council makes a job of fin- ishing up some of the boulevard work this year, so that they can begin to charge the improvement up to the pro- perty benefitted, It will be a good move in favor of the city's exchequer. The gas company appears to be go Ing at the business in real earnest More power to them; they can't get the gas here too soon. On the whole the Mayor made a pretty fair choice of chairmen of com- mittees. Bowman and Oliver back on nnance and works and property res- pectively, are all right.

Sage to have the publicity and immigration A GOOD -START AT REORGANIZATION CITY COUNCIL is to be com-, :_.j._..-Bended, for the way in .which it Is going about it to get the of the city into a better organ- The statements of the Mayor and aldermen that there has been money wasted: because-the- staffs of officials and workmen have ;liot been properly organized and their work properly planned will .be readily by the public ;wCo have pa.; any attention to the matter. It has a matter of common talk that such has; been the case. There has overlapping and some- umes under-lapping (if the term may foe one-man has Had it as his duty to attend to some particular work, with the result that neither did In other cases work that was supposed to be the duty of some person or other has been found TO be no.one's duty, and it too as a consequence was not done. The Mayor's suggestion that each committee of the council should make it a special work to :go -thoroughly Into the work it has under its care. and report to the council that the matter may" be gone into is d good should result in much good work being done that was here- tofore either neglected, left undone or done unwisely.

They love him not. medicine Hat is going to pay its al- aerrnen ten dollars for each session they attend. It is only .right that men who give up their time from business to handle public affairs should receive some remuneration. Government by Commission (Ottawa.-Free JJuluth citizens have decided that civic government -by commission is preferable. A special committee made investigations, and afterwards drafted six main reasous for the commission idea. The reasons are: 1. Because it establishes the city on a business basis and under it the city is operated as any large commer ctal corporation would be, tiius elirn mating political interests of ail kinds. 2. because it centralizes responsi- bility so it cannot be evaded. 3. "Because it naturally follows that greater economy will result from a purely" business administration. 4. Because it 'provides, or should provide, that the commissioners shall give all their time to the city's busi- ness, and that they shall be paid sal- aries sufficient to' attract the right kind of men. 5. Because the provisions of the re- ferendum, initiative and recall give the citizens er interest in public affairs, and great- er incentive to participate in them. 6. Because it abolishes the ward system electing city officers fromi the whole city make them responsible' to all parts of'the city, and compels' tnem to take care of the needs of! all parts of the city.- j These sis reasons are also very good ones for: Ottawa citizens to re- i member in favor of the continuance of; tne Board of Control- What Duluth isj trying to get more, than ,a't of the Board qf Control system; with -a few more referendums thrown in. ere is Your Chance I 100 x 1421-2 feet on Bartlett, facing cast, near London only Easy terms if taken at once. 7G x 142 1-2 comer lots 23-24-25, Block 4, Duff Addi- tion, 1-3 cash; Ualaiice 4 anil S mos.

THE VALUE OF DEMONSTRATION FARMS IS THE FIRST 6f thfe provinces to inaugurate a. system of demonstration farms. That they will be successful in their pur- pose of encouraging and assisting bet- ter farming in the province can be judged from the actual results in Ok- -lanoma, where such farms have "oeen in operation. The. first report of the demonstra- tion farm department of the State iJoard of. Agriculture has just teen made to the Board by Campbell Rus- superintendent .the work, he says: In discussing "The demonstration farms are in no sense of the word experimental farms. The managers of theBe fanns are not expected, desired or permitted to con- duct experiments. Their business is to apply methods that repeated ex- periments and years o? thorough tests have proven to be successful. The making of new experiments and test- ing and verifying the reliability of re- sults so secured is a slow and tedious work, for which very few fanners are demonstrate that by a proper crop' rotation the fertility of the soil can be fully maintained and the annual production steadily increased. At the present Ume full returns have been received only on wheat and oats, and in these crops the work was started so late that the result was not as good as if the earlier stages had been given more careful attention. On- ly eight of the farms grew more wheat tnis year. Reports from seven show an.average production of 15 1-3 bush- els on acres. The cost of produc- tion, including land rental, was 56 cents a bushel. The wheat sold for average of S3 2-3 cents a bushel at harvest time, and showed a net profit TO the grower of an acre. All of this wheat was sown before the con tracts were made. Committee Publicity (Minneapolis Journal.) As to publicity- in "committee pro- ceedings, the City of Minneapolis has perhaps given the State of Minnesota, as well as the Congress of-the United states a pointer. Not so many years ago, there was a scandal in the-Coun- cil over some contracts. Several Al- dermen were indicted, and one was convicted of soliciting a .bribe. The evidence showed that the meetings of the Council Committees were practi- cally held in saloons.. Here the cor- upt deals ware made up and brought to fruition. Even the honest Commit- tees were very slack in their methods. i'here was no record of attendance, of !An Act of Necessity A-correspondent writes iu" to correct a story printed in this paper several; days ago. j "In that snake story Ijaent her complains, "you made oae mistake'.'

He told me how he submitted a play to a celebrated act- or, and how in the course of the con- versation the actor remarked: 'Don't you think it is growing chil- ly in this 'Yes, it is, rather.' the young play- wright admitted. "Then the actor rang a bell and a servant forthwith appeared. said the actor, 'this room is fatuer cold. You may put three more manuscripts on the action of signing up a report. The Council, after the disclosures, made a rule that the City Cierk should also be Clerk of Committees, and Should keep a record of their proceed- ings. Since then the business of the council has been transacted in much better fashion. The abuse of committee secrecy Is an evil without doubt Whether com- mittees should be held to as formal an account as the full legislative body is another question, but the principle that committees hold bills "only in trust for the parliamentary body they represent should be fully recognized, and everything that essentially per- tains to the stewardship of the com- mittees should be admitted and acted upon. The discussions in committee should be more free and informal than on the floor. The committee is the place where the real character of a bill is to be determined, and Legislators should have fall liberty to know of ac- tion in this place. But much of the secrecy Is as unjust to the legislature as it is to the public, and per rules should be done away with. Bishop Is an Imperialist (Stratford Beacon.) Bishop Fall on of London is n6t back- ward in expressing his views not on- ly on education, but on other matters, speaking before the Canadian Club of the other day he declared him- self an Imperialist by conviction.

With the approach of cold weather the market for mining machinery for tne gold and silver mines of northern Ontario shows In camps beyond the reach of the rail- way, it is impossible, to get in heavy loads excepting during the winter. Many of the mine owners in Porcu- pine and Gowganda are now order- ing plants. An increasing proportion of the machinery which was formerly nearly all imported is now made in Canada. Kew people who knew mistletoe only as a desirable feature of Christ- mas decorations understand that the plant is a parasite dangerous to the life of trees in the regions in which it grows. It is only a question of time after mistletoe'once, begins to grow upon a tree before the tree itself wii] be killed. The parasite saps the life of the infected branches. Fortunately it is of slow growth, taking years to develop to large but when neglected it invariably ruins trees it reaches. The only method of ex- terminating is the cutting down of diseased trees. it is said that Goorge Westinghouse, the. inventor of the airbrake, .owns more "than patents, and his own Inventions number more than 300. Une trouble with the race is that too many people expect a porous plas ter to take the place of active exercise the open air.
