His position is hardly a tenable one. The mayor knows, as every member of Hie council knows, or should have known from a perusal of the engineer's reports, that additional equipment is needed to briny the waterworks system uu to efficiency. lie also knows that last fall work vcas slarled on a system which would increase the water pressure all over the city, ami ghe greater assurance of an adequate supply of water for fire fighting purposes. But, although that report has been in the hands of the coun- cil for the past three months or more, not a thing has been done, except to proceed with the erection of an ornamental water lower in North Lclhhridge.' Such dilatoriness'does not commend itself io Ihe ratepayers. The mayor deplores the condition of affairs which obtains waterworks department, hut excuses his ndminislraUo'.vby saying that there, is no money available to remedy matters. It is a poor excuse. Knowing that additional apparatus was required for an efficient system, it was the mayor's duly to find .the money. As chairman of finance he should have made that the paramount question until Ire had accomplished something. There is no USE in saying that mouey could not be found. The same argument applies as in the case of the subway.. Of the hvo matters the water question wns the more important Why could not the council have decided three months ago what additional equipment was needed for the pumping plant? And having decided, why could not a bylayy have been submitlet todny along with the subway bylaw, asking for power to issue debentures for the necessary money? Had that slage been reached, Mayor Hardie's position outlined in his published slalc- menl might have been taken seriously. Not otherwise.

The matter we arc referring to'uVc'ds Hie iiiniediute alienlion of the civic council. U is a crying shame iirtl measures have not been put into force, not only lo preserve he beauty of the city landscape, of which we been hitherto o proud, but for preventing the large expenditure mude going lo waste. Let us see something done and less time spent n palaver nl council me'elinjjs. Wilh reference to Ihc planting of in Henderson Park ilong Ihe street lisics this may have becii an error in ju'dg- nenl on Ihe part of (he. person responsible, if wluilMr. ays holds good. Bui there is no justifiailion for Ihe prescnl legligence which is everywhere apparent on pur So ar as the slakes are concerned they ought to be removed, 'here vill be that much saved in the painting of them..' In the case of he saplings let Ihe. bands be loosened and the tices "given 'a ihance. It may be further remarked that some of Ihe young trees vliich are showing signs of life arc being rapidly killed by suck- rs growing at their roots, and effort has been made to re- novc them, and so help lo keep the life the tree is showing. The faults mentioned ought to have been apparent lo our civic authorities if they are observant as Ihey arc expect- d to be. It should nol be necessary for ihcir allcnliim to be dir- 'cted to negligence from an outside source, for il is there to sue. It is all very well to talk of civic pride, but. as things appear it present, it will be no fault of Ihc citizens of Lelhbridge if this lommendrtble virtue is forced from them. OUR POINT OF VIEW Parliament has prorogued and Ihe country survives. Like- vise Ihe British Empire. Thai emergency, however, can be kcpl on tap and drawn on as occasion demands.
