TRACY'S RESIGNATION. f TT is -witH mixed feelings that the 'announce- 1 men t of Mr. Tracy's resignation will Have been received.- There is bound to be general re- gret in losing in him a personality which has in- gratiated'itself in the goodwill and esteem of the people of LeUibridge. But the circumstances at the present time are '' nothing ungracious in saying so, as to make his resigna- tion acceptable. There is no quarrel, with our late Commissioner of Trade and if there is any it- is with the circumstances which have brought about the altitude in viewing the jsfep he has taken: In engaging the services of Mr, Tracy, for the position he has the city council of ilie'fiaxe could Jiaye...made no belter-selection. He has been pitted against circumstances which hold not only in Lethhridge, but in other cities of Canada. Had these circumstances been otherwise there is no gainsaying.that Mr. Tracy's resignation would have been'met with -Had--the opportunities been afforded, il safe to say, there would have been no fitter man on the spot to make the most of them. It cannot be saidvthat Lelhbridge was foolish, ill creating and filling the-office of; Industrial Commissioner. The enterprises of this world; in their wisdom or otherwise, are wont to be judged by the success or failure which attends them. With this contingency at the end of every experi- ment it would be illogical to apply the'terms wise or foolish where circumstances areinstrumentai in tilting the scales either way. What Mr. Tracy has effected for the city of Lelhbndge will be placed to his credit. In the measure we size up the results of his endeavors we will take into consideration the conditions of tilings as they have existed. Without any personal reference to Mr. Tracy, and with the experience of the times, we will do. .well to follow strongly the new lines of develop- ment with regard to rural communities on which. of Trade is now most advisedly en- gaged. We can afford to sit-back a little without giving too-much sway-to-industrial ambition. -We shall not, however, neglect means for fulfilling these aspirations, but will wisely ensure their realisation by building up solid foundations for industries in the way of rural and ecbnoniic de- >'elopment. We tender Mr. Tracy our appreciation of his endeavors for promoting the welfare of Leth- bridge, and trust that he will look with happy feelings to his sojourn in the city. other quarters, there should be no doubt of. the outcome. The street railway must do one or other of two things: either the expenses of operation must be reduced and the traffic materially increased, or the cars must be put in the barn. This may not seem like a very.loyal statement, but it is the truth, and it's well to tell the truth in some cases even if it does hurt It's an out and out choice, and we hope-the citizens will choose the former. A.private cor- poration would as a matter of "good business." Why, then, not Lethbridge? Better to keep (he cars running and performing their function than that the system should rust out, and be a dead load on the treasury.

SO the Redistribution Bill is likely to get a "six months' heist." Census in 1911, redistribution in years out of ten gone and the under-represenled Missoula thinks the one-man-one-car system is alright. Well they have had some experience 'and ought to know. Being a 'privately ownee system the ratepayers do not have io be consid- ered. However, if it is good business for a pri- vate corporation, it ought to work alright in Lethbridge. We need business methods here Municipal ownership will go on the rocks in the west if we fail to recognize that principle. .there is practically no emergency brake, and when the car is speeding shortest possible atop is from one hundred to one hundred and fift> feet. A..comparison., has been made be- tween the Lethbridge system and the system In Sherbrooke. Such a com- parison js unfair.

The weeds must go, westbows'lo the majority of the over-represented Jme: 1Jle weefls musl and 1914 is the very best time we know of to put Premier Borden promised redistribution at this session. The people had a right to expect it, and a consequent general election preceding the 1015 session. It was but a natural expectation. But instead we get a promise of redistribution' and even that is likely to be broken. However, it is but another to add lo the long list. The people will simply have to stand for the mean- time. ONLY T.WO CHOICES. IN today's issue found a letter from Hie 'publicity comroitlee of the Street Railway Men's Union. In all fairness it ought lo be read by all voters Who will say 7 whether or, not they favor the onc-mnn-one-car system, so pulled. t But in spite of opposition fronij this and l-the ban on them. For if the weeds don't go the 'farmers will, and they may have (lie sorrowful experience of walking out. "Surely the government is not going to throv up its hands and say it can do nothing. If it finds it can do nothing, it should resign and give place to another government." This from (lie Conser- vative member for Peterboro, and mighty good advice it is. The. demand of the farmers has been that someone rise up and solve their problems. The government could not do' after the farmers solved their own problems, and petition- ed the government to grant their requests, Ihey Would not. The government could not find the solution and would not take the farmer's solution to his own problems.

The Herald, in its'editonal columns of- April 8, made this statement: "However, we can. not see tlmt the question is street railway men may or That, no doubt, expresses the attitude ol many of the property owners. We, however, who do "the work, and we who will be the ones to suffer, from this change, think that we should have something to say in tho matter, and we appeal to.oar feliow-Vorkere of the city of to back us up in this phase of the age-long strug- le. A number oft arguments .have.been published lately, which we, think call for a reply. The Mayor of Great Falls says that delays can.not be eliminated on the one-man one-car. Commissioner Reid differs from that opinion, and states Lhat the one-man car operates faster than the if the pay-as-you- ,ve system is adonted. He states that the passengers usually get on in larger numbers than they get off. We would point out that we'just as often pick them up .one at a time and let in large 'So'It is as broad as it is long. Then how are the car loads tnat sometimes off at Henderson Lake to he It may be true at time? when fefo i e ridinp that' a fast schedule can be made, bui at that time'nobody cares. When the people want to get home or back to work, the time can not'be made, and that Is the time a fast schedule is most wanted. .Commis- sioner Reid also states that there will be less risk of. accident We would point out that 75 per cent, of the conductor's work Is done while the car in in motion. On a one-man car this will have to be done .'while the car IB stopped, so' at times when busy the motorman1 win get behind schedule time, and will take all" kinds of risks to make up.' At.present the conductor gets all kinds of questions ;o answer. With a one-man one-car those questions will bq fired Rt the motorman; hU attention will .he di- verted; hence a great rlak of collision, "t is a daily occurrcnco'to see a pas BeiiRcr catch a car two OP throe hun- Irorl feet from the corner, and after they miss.their footing, .and ged bcnentli tho step, what 'would bo the result if this were lo happen on he front step: their legs would be mmcdlatoly in front of the wfyaein, nnd therefore In danger of aerloug ac- :ident. It might he argued that the motorman Is in a position to flee any do this; but how con prfivimt ju-d with a IiHud brake CAV practicable for Letllbridge from coal, Sherbrooke the power is produced by water-power anil'costs much less. At the present time nearly one half the total pensds of the car system is power. To run the. same number of cars over the same mileage and tq servo the same number of people In LethbrTdge as is done in Sherbrooke would run the. expenses away out of sight.
