REQUIRES IMMEDIATE ATTENTION T .IS EXTRKMELY UNl-'OlVTliNATE thnt it should have rc- quired Ihe recent fatality lo a member of the city police, force lo draw nllenlion to what evidently is a distinct source of danger. The blame cannot he laid directly to any particular person, but nil Ihe same Ihe circumstance calls for provisions to he made to prevent the. recurrence of such a painful incident. The chain on the arc raising and lowering Ihe globes, is within reach of even children, .and, for all. that is known, might Jn many places he in the.same condition as that which caused the death .of the unfortunate policeman. The safest jilan and one which should be put into'execution immed- iately is lo have that portion of the is within human reach insulated. is nol sufficient, as has been'suggesled, to have a bylaw a penalty attached warning the public'.againsl touching the Kc ons be'so foolish as to do tliis "willingly, know- ing the 'chances he laking.

"1 am going to take the question up this week with the he said, "and see if there is not some means whereby the city can induce owners, of vacant property lo keep down the dandelions. It is nol fair .lo other citizens who lake good core of their lawns that the vacant lots 'should be allowed to run lo seed with dandelions which, are thus tpread far and wide." Calgary owners of vacant lots are Jiol the only offenders in Ihus allowing their holdings lo become a public nuisance, anc dandelions arc not the only weeds whose propagation should be -put .a stop lo. There are delinquents in this, respect in Lelh bridge, and it would he well that measures were strictly enforce against the owners of such properly lo compel them lo keep their lots clear from weeds. This.will be as much for Ihe pro Icclion of the boulevards as for private lawns. OUR POINT OF VIEW Don't forget the big Southern Alberta l-'air. It will be a ecord breaker. The crop in Southern Alberta never belter, f the present ccndifiuns hold there will be a bumper yield and earlv harvest. There is no use squealing about Ihe laxalinn. II is no worse lion in any other western city. As has been pointed out, I.clh- ge went in for Ihcibesl and the besl has always lo he paid for. So long as real eslale was "turning over" rapidly no one coined lo mind what the assessment was. With a slump, how- ver, (he assessment is assuming some importance in Ilic eyes if the iunn "holding" Ihe subdivision lots. If Hon.

It appears that numerous complaints have been .rcgislered at the ami thai such complaints are not with cut some justification. That the public need even- protection from this sort of thin 'no inatlcr where, the car sjslcni is located, is clearly evident. 'needs (o he particularly enforced in Hie-case of public utilities such as.the direct-cars, where Ihe individuals in charge are not 'directly'dependent on for patronage. t.'A.Su far "as our experience goes with the employes of the I.elh- bridge street cars, .it may safely be said (hat lliiiy are without ex- civil-and is commendable and the spirit should be kept up. -If any incident wlieie foul langunge is used should occur, .us reported in a Calgary CHSO, or any arrogance displayed, an example should be made. This is as much for Ihe benefit of Ihe rfesl of the employes on the cars as for those who usc'them. ;duty also rests with the public, and where civility is ex- pecled it should at nil times he frcclv accorded.
