TheHerald.h'as been harping on this of matter ever since it came into ence-ami, it is delighted to find that the -Works and Property Committee is taking the -matter up this year as though it meant business. Our streets and walks should be a credit to.the city but it must be con- fessed that they are in a sorry sight to all strangers and force them to wonder if Lethbridge is entitled to Ihe claim it makes of being one of the mo5jt progressive "ptuces tiio west. Money has to be spent pnr" our streets ei'ery year..1 VThy not devote a lot of cash to them this year and have them properly: graded. We might as well undertake the matter now as later. -And it is the same with the walks. Let Us have cement walks, walks that will last long and wear well. The day of the wooden sidewalk has passed. The Herald is in entire accord with the committee's report, ns out- lined, and while the carrying out of the recommendations will mean the expenditure of quite n lot of money, we believe ev- ery-citizen -who has the city's best support a bylaw to raise the money for this purpose. two months we did not consider to warrant any extended notice and con tented-ourselves with pointing out that the decennial period was tho proper time for a revision, of the Bank Act, and as. the charters expire in l9llr any changes in the Bank Act could then be most effectually made after all the miasmata that gather around a panic year had been cleared away and "the lessons had been fully conned by the light of time and experience. Hon. W. S. Fielding disposed of the matter by expressing .similar views. Whatever value Pringle's infor- ming speech may have had was des- troyed by a malicious attack on one of our leading banking institutions. In his conclusion 31r. pringle said: "It will be stated that Pringle at- tackcxl the banks. i'ringle has not attacked the banks." On this point we must take issue with llr. pringle, and state the met that he has. been most successful in his "attacks" >u two banks, now in process of liquida- tion. Acting in n. fiduciary capacity he "attacked" the Ontario Bank so that he secured a very of money at the Cornwall branch, and this money (some of thousands) has never been repaid. One- of the chief points the district wished, viz., a fair rate'.on coal, was not. mentioned' however, .nor a. fair local rate on grain to points in the province. A committee, was appoint- ed to go into the matter of freight tariffs, consisting of.three E. O. Weeks and j Secretary'.D.' E. Htiris.

Citizens, get busy and cleanup your back yards and make look better. for a baby town is coming along fast. The district court, with a real live judge, is to hold sittings there. A year or so ago there was n't any Wamer. The Herald has heard complaint! that 'the new walk being erected on Baroness road cast to Westminster is dangerous. -It is-bcing built .with two planks, a spnce of. about six in- ches being left between the planks. It is being argued and quite rightly too that, accidents might very- easily .hap pen to pedestrians on a walk of that sort.
