J4.00 TELEPHONES Suslness Office'.-.............. 1252 Editorial Office A., Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business -Manaeer THE TITLED CANADIANS King George's latest distribution of honors insofar a Csr-ads is concern- ed is soinewJjat of an improvement upon other years- It is dilBcult to understand why J. A. -M. Aiklns, K.C., is knlghled unless it is as a recognition of Ills merits as a side- stepper and Ms gift of including in a single speech quotations from all t-ao poets, anoient and modern. Apait from the Aiklns case the Canadians to enter the titled ranks ara worthy of the King's tribute. Mr. Bprdeu and Mr. Foster are (both distinguished public men wJlo have rendered long service to Canada. Hon. Adam Bock is one of the foremost men in On- tario and his Hydro-Electric scheme has made him one of the benefactors of that province. Dr. Roddick of "Montreal is eminent in the medical profession and a leading citizen of Montreal. One of the most striking honors in the list is..the knighthood conferred upon one of the veteran French Canadian members of tile Sen- ate, Senator Do at one time premier of Quebec. He'is" over ninety years of age and is always regular in attendance at the Senate. He belongs to the old school of .public men and has spent the greater part of his life in public service. In couolustou I think U no doubt that way to kill tho st-pwil railway prvfin tho cars is to folluw out the service which is at, present In force. Good results ixero never yet Arrived at from giving the .public piior service and the public ure- ones have to support the street 'railway. If It is known tiiai strflat ears will-run at freijueiit en- ough -JEtervala to warrant mitlng for a ?ar, people will always do so, but under the present system no one will ever wait for a car. Enough is said ta these observa- tions to convey to Hie street railway management some genuinely good ideas for the increase of street railway revenue.

STREET RAILWAY OPERATION There is a real concern amongst citizens .who have Lethbridge's wel- fare seriously at heart about the suc- cess of the street railway. Just it is realized tliat Letnbridge is not capable of making a street rail p'rofit bearing or even expense (paying, it is felt that. every means should be utilized.to bring all-possible revenue to the system. Expenses are being reduced, and the great majority of citizens favor the paring policy bas been adopted. There is a feeling, however, that, the manage- ment-is not adopting lie best course to. increase the revenue of the rail- way. 'Let us present some the criticisms and suggestions as offered to us by a well known citizen, deeply interested In the welfare of the city Here is what he has Tre: publish nis state- .hope that Ms suggee- fruit I have! been, informed from severa: "fcourcea that Friday morning lasl when tie market was on, no cars passed either the corner of Gth Ave and 5th SL or on the Ave. 'belt for a iperiod of over half an -hour. This about ten In the morning, at a time when there were at least fifty people waiting: to take their purchases home. My informant tells me that of the lot who waited for a considerable time for a street oar, the majority of them gradually drifted away and .walked home, a direct loss to :the street rail 'way's revenue and a severe -blow to the useMness of tho market. Example 3: The Red Line now runs a thirty-two minute service dur- ing the greater part of the day. If, Instead of running the cars at inter- vals of twice as long as formerly, they had cut the intervals.in half, tlley have created a demand for street car service to the park. As it Is at present I have heard a number of people state that they would not go to 'the park, because the street cars ran at too lonj? intervale. As there has been an Aquatic Club formed and a building-put up in which the city is interested, it would appear to be the part of good, business sense to try and boost that line of bus It it claimed that the Orange Lice has made money, or perhaps I should cay has lost less money than the Red and White Line ears. There is only one reason for this fact, and that Is that the Orange Line is a pirate and runs on the lines of tho others, con- sequently picking up fares which logically belong tc the other Hnea. If the service on the Red, White and Blue Lines were more adequate, the Orange line could bo cut out and: no one woidd miss it The city Js paying the band to give concerts throughout the summer. These concerts are apparently going to be given in the Gait, Gardens. If they were held alternately at Hender- son and Adams Parks, tbo city would receive returns several times over for their investment in music. .Tlilg could be car- ried out. along other linos, a very email attraction being put at the end of any car line will draw a sufficient trowd to bring a profit to that line at euch a time. For example, If, Instead of having footiball and baseball games at tho Athletic Park or the Mounted Police enclosure, these games were betd at the fair grounds, there would fce a -large. revenue throughout the aeaaoa for the Red Line. If as a matter of variation it was thought si rafale to change the band concert or a era a] I fireworks display or somo equally reasonably priced attraction to ihelp out the White- Line, there is a point :in the neighborhood of 13th Street and 9th or 10th Avenues where nn attraction could be put on that crowd Uie Line cara.
