Daily, by mall, per year..... Weekly, by year.... HOO 3.00 125! 1224 TELEPHONES Business Office Editorial Offlce W. A. Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager THE BYLAW VOTE The result of tts bylaw vote on Friday is not very re-assuring to the commissioners. It presents pe- culiarities in spots and has made peo- ple think. Indeed, the Herald is inclined to believe some of the ratepayers have ttxragflt more since the vote was an- nounced Ulan before. It is roll that the current account deficit was passed. This debt has been a drag on finance commis- sioner for years, and it wili be a good thing to have it wiped off. With a clean slate, this account should lie watched and never allowed to fell -behind hi such a manner It is not well, however, that the by- law for raising money to cover the discount on debentures sold in put yews ivas defeated The Herajld'is of the opinion tibat the ratepayers not studied this particular bylaw or they would not have slaughtered it in such a wholesale fashion. The bjiaw was in every wav legitimate. It was to raise money to pay.for wort Jwhich had been authorized by the people by their votes when the work was undertaken. The were -in no way to blame that the money market went aiid the de- bentures had to be sacrificed at such a discount that another issue is re- quired to meet the deficit created by the discount. The-only thing to do in UBS case is to the iylaw again, and keep en submitting it until the burg- esses wake up to the fact that it must foe iassed. The market tylaw .was knocked in the head, which is proof that the ma- jority ot the biirgesras think ihe pres- ent arrangement is meeting the tie- -ffland without the need of further ex- pense, for the bylawa for new under- takings, the Herald rather looked for the vote to- go as it 'did. These are troublous times, and the men who are paying the tases are :uot intent on Effing ijp greater burden than they hare already assumed. The people of North Lethbridge are chagrined at the result They passed every hylaw. Is it because they fum- ed out fun force to .hear the commis- sioners explain while the vot- ers of South Lethbrldge were too in- different to attend'the meeting csiM for the south side? The commissioners should -not feel that the vote is one of censure on their administration. It is not. It is merely one of the signs of the times, a warning that the less money spent for the next few years, the better the people will be pleased. PRACTISE DAIRY FARMING In our advocacy of mixed farming we must not forget that there are dis- fc-icts where it'Is difficult 7or this method of farming to be 'practised. Southern Alberta, in some sections, cannot expect to be other than a grain growing coyntry. Nevertheless there are other districts where mixed farm- ing is practicable. Right close to this city opportunity is offered for mixed farming on a scale not excelled in any portion of Western Canada. We refer to our irrigated district Here we have a sure water supply, a cer- tainty of good hay and grass crops, and what more is required for stock raising than these factors? Leth- bndge district, especially under the encouragement by our Beard of and citizens, should develop very rap- idly into a productive dairy district We ought to be ahle to put the New Zealand and the Eatern Canadian cneese out of business in this -pro- vince if the fanners go into the rais- ing of dairy cattle seriously and ex- tensively. Mixed fanning is the ideal form of fanning, and it should -be fol- lowed wherever practicable. Ten Uio'uuand people are pleading tor clemency for Krafchenko. Kraf's 'particular 'brand of clemency was of tho soft nosed bullet variety. Per- hapa it would bo 'as well If that fact were impressed upon some of the lugubrious ones who "signed tho pe- .'titlon." It is amusing to read the Ontario -Liberal papers just arriving with their predictions of seventy seats for Rowell, or so close a contest that a new election might hate to be held. They evidently had abiding faith In i tho -vote, but .the "mom- Ing after feeling" wasn't good Edmonton olaiius to be the Infest, silver fox market in tho world.
