Let us halt in our civic expenditure until we gron some more AVe pi-ad vilks and streets, a street railway, we will .have a sew- age disposal plant, we have a light and pow cr plant second to none in 'the west. "What else do wo require0 Nothing, except extensions to our waterworks and sewage systems. We can rest on our oars for a while.- The council .will be well advised if it ceases expending and begins econ- omizing. The 'Herald has been an of clue development it has supported expenditure in tiat direction, but we believe Lethbridge has more; than kept pare 'with its growth, can well afford to re serve. our expenditures for a few years.- We'1 possess .all the conven- iences arid necessities of a city at least times the size That should content us for Ihi. present A Bumper Crop Assured THE COPIOUS SHOWERS which have fallen since Frldav night have placed the crop prospects beyond the realm of ..speculation and tte.e is no' doubt but that Southern AlberU will have full gianarles Theie can be one claas of larm er suffer now and that is the man not put the work into his jfarm which intelligent agriculture !calls for. The-man who scratched in hasn't much sympathy com- ing and the toleration for that class of farming Is growing, less every year. The farmer who methods and did not gamble with th-a weather' conditions Is now absolutely sure of a ciop and there will be more grain in Alberta this coming fall than.ever before. It is too bad, that the farmer has. to contem- plate his immense nelds of grain with a suspicion that he is going to again suffer from a car shortage IJie need of more railwa-js is so pamfullj dent that the governments would be supported in resorting to the utmost limits m uiging speed in construe tioii. is., the time to commence planning for handling the crop of The Tax Rate TUB 1912 TAX RATE has been struck and ratepayers will soon receive their tax notices requiring them to paj (axes on then propertv this vear at the rate of 22 mills on the dollar. There is no reason to doubt that the' tax rate is high. It is seven mills higliei than last 5 ear It is the high CSL rate struck in the citj of iethbridge, as the records go to show that IVn mills was the highest rate -aver paid heretofoie reason for the increase nat 11 alii in the increase In coat of op eratlng the The departments CTe growing with the cltj, and where mills paid the current expenses last year It requires 181 mills for the same purpose this )ear The in creas-a in the debenture interest and principal to be paid each year Is an- other cause of the higher tax rate. Btrango to say the 'school rate this 5 ear is the same as m 1011; showing that the school board is most careful in handling its large expenditure, equal to about one tout th the money spent by the city. Now, while there are manv cities in 'Canada ;with as high or a higher rate than 22 mills, the fact that the rate has" increased nearh fifty per cent, over list' -vear should prompt the council to seriously consider finance before undertaking any more, large "expenditures Lethbridge is now as far advanced, so far as muni- cipal development is concerned, as plenty of cities three or four times us large What is needed now h pop illation, and a high tax rate nill never attract population A careful of the piunlolnal machinery for leaks in'the every day expenditure, together with a safe and sane policy In capital expenditure must guide the contiol of the citl for some years at least The Next President A DEMOCRATIC at the lions iit-xi. November should be asmired by the nomination of AVoodrow Wilson, Governor of New ''Jerny and former president of Prince ton University, as the candidate. It U "a signal victory for the progressive 'element of the party and -for William !J. Bryan. Wilson is a progressive of the iprogresiives. He Is an enemy of ithe, great the Republic, and his entire course in public life }iai 'been a battle for 'the rilhts of ,tha Woodrow WiUon repre- sents the best type of American pub- lic man He is Intellectual clean and Independent, ami is the best man .who has: contested for the presidency in many years His nomination was due to Biyan When the ffebraskan made his" declaration that-he would tease supporting Clark became the big In 'terests were 'behind the Missoiirlan, the move was considered by some to be dangerotn to Wilson more than to Clark, because Bryan's power was under-OTttaated vote fiom that moment changed and Bryan's influ- ence was reali7ed when Clark's lead began to be overtaken, and nas finally oveicome by the Xew Jersey gover- nor. "Psc-'s .s the saKa lion of Democracy. Had Clark, ,or Harmon, or-Underwood been nom- inated, the-.stand pat element of the party -would :have been victorious and third party move of Theodore Roosevelt and the progressive Re- publicans would have been given, a great stimulus. As it is the Demo- cratic nominee is 4he stamp of man who will'attract the progressive ele- ment of the Republicans "and under- mine conipletelyMho Roosevelt move- ment. appears to be almost cer- tain'that-Wilson will be the next pre sldenl of the United States Bryan not only secured the New Jersey man', the nomination, but the principles Bryan has been advocating for years brought about Ihe movement which: the necessity of the DC- mocrats nominating, a man standing {or these if Iho part; was to be victorious Local Capita LETHDRIDGB.'ln Ut ambition to become an Industrial centre, might adopt at the beginning the Peterboro and Hamilton polloi Ihe encouragement of Industries to 'locate here by the Investment of local rapllnl.

'The Importers of this fruit have spent much time and money.in an endeavor to get fair express rates, but without success. This dodger is circulated -that-the public max under- stand who Is to blauie for high cost of these fruits." Commenting above circular, the Saskatoon Press says: "This will help to explain nhy not only fruit, but so manj other articles of consumption ate so high in this city, and why there is-such a discrep- aiicj in prices in'different cities in the .west. and express rates foi different points in the west appear to bo basedi on the maxim 411 the traffic will stand The people of the west should be given leliet from this burden of unjust freight and express lates The Winnipeg Flee Press which his gqne into the mattei caretullj and to ventilate the abuse, estimates freight lates m the west are from twenty to one hundred and eighty per cent than in the east. "Some rebel maj [airly be expected from the Hallway Commission, which has bad ample evidence placed hefore It The death of Chairman re a good fiiend of the bouare deai it highly important that hit successor shall be a man of the same stamp." The expieos companies are subsrf iary companies of the WJrnpan- es In Judge Mabee a words, the whole business of express would go on just as it dees now, without the existence of an} express companies at all, by hlmplj substituting railwal employees, and letting the railways lake the nhole toll as in the first instance." The principle for which the west is contending applies equally of couise, to railway rates and express rates The western demand Is that the injustice in the whole scale of existing rates be remedied, 4ha discrimination against the west done an ay with, and the lates placed on a lust basis Fruit of Injuitic?
