AND PUBLIC An Ottawa dispatch concerning th eale by the Government of publi lands in future says On the recommendation of the min ister of the an orderincoun cil has been passed making new re gulations governing thesale of pub lie lands in Western They provide that there ehall be no sale to one person ot an area o land in excess of one and lane must not be sold until a valuation has been placed upon it by a competen officer the department after a per sonal All land will be sole sold at npset determined on the basis of At least 3 daye notice must be given of all pub lie This is a move in right direc But it does nof go far enough The plan as outlined will deal a blow to the but if it were made to include a recent recommen dation of the Lethbridge Board of that public lands must be brought under cultivation within a reasonable time after purchase un der penalty of reverting to the Gov it would hit the nail on the we are glad to see that the Government at Ottawa has seen fit to provide the above regu SMALL MUNICIPALITIES NEED FIRE Almost daily for the past two weeks the Canadian Press wires have carried reports of fires which nearly wiped out little towns in the The Calgary Herald is constrained to remark that it is a peculiar thing that prosperous little towns have paid so little attention in the past to provid ing adequate fire The case ot Warner the other night should impress on the smaller towns of Southern Alberta the necessity of doing more in the way of fire protec The loss of worth of blnldings and stock by fire in these days is a serious Not only Is the material loss serious but the fact that labor and material muet be provided for reconstruction Js a ser ious factor in these days when all labor should be employed as far as possible on war It seeme to The Herald that the fire underwriters might do much good by a campaign of education In the smaller communities In the matter of ifflra Much anight also be done to provide cheaper firefighting Motor apparatus has done much for fire protection during the past few but generally it is outside the pocketbooks of the small Perhaps if the fire under writers would appeal to Henry Ford he might provide something cheaper which would serve the HEAT WAVE AFFECTS CITY Is there something in the hot weather ot this spring and summer which is affecting the municipal au thorities of Alberta and causing them to break out in new places Had the malady been confined to Lethbridge might not have but Calgary has been that It Is somethlg out of the The new malady takes the form of violence ot theflart of municipal of ficials towards the press of the The contributing cause seems to be that the nesjspnpers dare to criticize the members of the city We admit that It Is leso majeste and all and It seeme stinnge that the newspapers should be guilty of a crime so To show how a few of the Calgary aldermen con sider the action of lowbrow odllors in criticizing them we have only to append a resolution offered at Friday evenings session of the city council of that Whereas it is the fooling of this council that eome of the recent edi torials in our city press regarding municipal quitters and members of this council have been insolent in ucnhnritable in spirit and un true In And whereas this council believes that such villiflca tlon of public servants and misrepres entation of public matters will have the unfortunate effect of hindering selfrespecting persons from undertak ing the duties of public and also causing unnecessary and serious suspicion among which in turn may make them careless of their public responsibilities it bo that this council register Its protest agalns the action of some of the city editor in disparaging regarding th council without and ii discussing public affairs without hav ing accurate knowledge of the facts and further that we suggest to th city editors that we would expec them to realize that the duties of pub Ho life are onerous enough In them selves without the addition of un undeserved and unkin It is only a pity that the aldermen commissioners and others who giv voice to euch maudlin do no live in The Kaiser has th scheme that would appeal to them Editors who dare to express an opin ion or publish criticism are throw into Newspapers are suppressec The people take what is handed t them and havent a word to Llf in Germany is a nice pleasant pas time with a few autocrats doing th thinking for the The peo pie arent supposed to have minds o their Probably they are no sufficiently informed to be in a pos tion to criticize as th motion of the
