CLMI them- selves ii secured his ser- vices. At the last regyTar meeting of the ricklaycrs and Masons Union Dad and his bunch of civic legisla- tors took another burl at the ques- tibn of getting rid of the antiquated system of street names and adopting the more modern method of having. them numbered. It's a corker how people can raise all sorts of objec- tions to a simple thing when a change is advocated. Even Dad, who is a worthy father of his son in most things, was guilty of this offence at the following officebearers for the en- be a good idea if it suing term were with the Lethbridge the council meeting. Dad is heartily iii favor of having the change made but he is afraid it might cause some trouble. The names of the streets are registered with the plan of the city, of course, but what's the odds? It would not cost much to register another. And if it has got anything to do with the charter, that can he mended even if we have to send some red-hot telegrams to the local mem her and hustle off Aid. Ives and the city solicitor to Edmonton to read the Riot :Act to the government as we did to get that priceless treasure the early-closing by-law. Changes in the charter are easy and as for the insurance companies they are dead anxious to get Lethbridge busines. that they would riig up every pol'c> they have ami change the names o the streets any old time wft said so St. And yet these .are. streets that people aro bound Ip; inquire As for the sentiment of the thing; that is nil b'osh. Who gives a curly for Smith or or Charles or Helen or Crabb? T Dad and the rest of the counctf ought to arise in their might and do away with the names, for spite if -for .nothing else for with the exception of Aid. Mac- beth not a one of them has had this small fume und holy sanctity award- ed him by having iv' street called af- er him. Perhaps the Aberdeen syn- icate of the Farm Com- >any will grucious enough to call he path leading .from a Chink's hack to his peg pea or "the path bc- ween two rows of strawberries after them.
