The City Council doesn't want to get away from tho fact that the ratepaj'ers of Lothbri'dye fa\or muni-eipar ownors'hip of natural gas. The santiment i.s sU'ongly enough directed that' way, for any clear hoadod man to detect it. Again we believe tlie people favor the expense of 'boring for gas i^ing borne by the city. The Board of Trade tabled a resolution favoring tWis policy, but we don't inwle-ml to believe the Board of Tra^do voiiwl the aaivt'imont of many citizens. What the people of Lotlvbridge want is the ownerehip of noitural gfi� by the city and if privote companies are prepared 'to risk thousands of dollars to 'bore for at, surely the city oain afford to speculate in the discovery .of this great asset-a fuel, light and power supplying' commodity that will enrich this city and put it in a position to compete with any city in the west as a man-ufacituring centre and an economScnl place to Hve in. With all thesa ad-rantages to be secured, tho city should boar tho cost of boring aivd not ton farms that ought to b� under cult iva'i'Wi tiri-hi'l'd (or sale ut� city mis. ihnii'^h witih tlw m'ost extruvaga'U j;i l/he city cannot ri>ach them iVir \"ars.

This, however, as 1 have previously stated, is new the nornval condition of the western town or ci'ty, and does not occasion any surprise. Of course, working-men coming to tihe city and unable �to rent a house are still less able to �build, because of 'the price of land, an'.d to that extent the rise in values tends to retard the legitimate g:v)w-t'h of the place. It has the same cf-fcot in other ways, too. I was told of a man who came 'here intending to 'invest a certain snmll cwp>i'tal in a useful business, but was frightened o(T when ha found tilie price he would have 'to i>aj' for a ItC'." Fortunately Lethibri'dgc, t'hough a growing centre, has avoided a "boom". As a matter of fact, steaidy substantial growth, with land values at a sensi'ble figure is to toe pj-eferr-ed to a "boom" that lasts for a short time and collapses, putti>ng a cit.\ in a worse position than before tho "boom" l>egttt>. Ilcol estate is increasing in value, but this fact is idue to legitimate rs of "" that has struck Saskatoon and Edmonton. Ubc 'thi' Herald rcccivc�ci froiii Kim the ether day. wo foi>l I.-?
