ROGERS The death of George Rogers re- moves from the scene of action a man of the type that Lethbridge can ill afford to lose. He had a supreme faith in Alberta in general and in Lethbridge in particular. His life j was spent during his residence here in the interests of this city and dis- trict. He was a success as a busi- ness man'and he reinvested the pro- ceeds of his success in this district showing that he believed in the coun- try and its future. What he was and what he had was devoted to the building up of the place in which he lived. As a citizen of this city he richly deserved the honors the city gave him and the trust the citizen's reposed in him. As a municipal rul- er he had good judgment and was strong in standing by what he be- lieved to be right. Lethbridge was fortunate in having him for a citi- zen and. is much poorer because of his death. damnation of the council and of th engineer whom they previously ap proved. OUR POINT OF VIEW Introduce the real Sunny Southern Alberta to your friends. Some people are going to get into trouble if they persist in walkia, across the boulevards that are seed- ed down. Whe.n they are raked over and roDed, you will know that the grass-seed is sown, and it is "Keep off the for yours. Now get ready to pui in those sweet peas. The warm xveather will help them make up for lost time. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy has said j that, the nsw daylight bill is ac- eeptable to the- C. P. R. That set- tles it for out in this country the only time there is is C. P. R. time. The baseball fans are taking les- sons in voice culture to enable them to root Corrigan's Corkers to victory over the Mad Hatters a week from Wednesdav. THE SELKIRK CENTENNIAL It looks as if Western Canada were going to recognize the fact that it- has a history. Tonight there will be in this city a company of Win- nipeg's foremost citizens togethe with a number of leading citizen from other centres in the West to en list the interest of Lethbridge citi zens in the proposal to have a cen tennial celebration of the first whit- settlement in western Canada Th history of great national expositions clearly proves that they are- a bene- fit not only to the part of the eoun- ttry in which the exposition is helc but to the .whole country as well From the great exposition held in London in 1851 which was originat- ed and promoted by Prince Consort Albert to the latest, the Quebec Ter- centenary, these CApOSltiOua l Been epoch-marking- affairs. As the founding: of Quebec was the begin- ning of history in Eastern Canada, so the founding of the Selkirk settle- ment in 1812 was the real beginnin; of the Great West. As the celebra- tion of the founding of Quebec was of great importance to all Canada, the West included so the hundredth anniversary of the Selkirk settlement will be of epual interest to the whole of Canada, the East included. Th'e Selkirk Centennial will, be the first great national celebration in the West and as such should be tak- en up with enthusiasm by the peo- ple. The fact that so many of the best men in the West are taking such The lengthening of the summer days is causing the people of these northern regions to lose interest in the daylight bill. an active, interest in the matter is a guarantee that the affair will be well managed and will be a credit to the country: It will not be a Win- nipeg affair nor a Manitoba affair, but will be a concern for the whole of Canada: The main benefit will come to Western Canada even as the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition will be of greatest benefit to the Western States. Of all the kinds of business in which a city or country can engage and the one that is of superlative importance, is the boy business. It must be remembered that the de gree and quality of our civic sue cess depend more than upon all else on the results of this branch of our activity. The city that is more interested in cash than in character and in twenty year bonds than ia fifteen year old boys is on the sure road to ultimate smash! The boy business claims first Hamilton Spectator.

Once we POWER PLANT BYLAW A week from today the burgesses of this city are asked to give their opinion of-the city council's pro- posal regarding the power plant. Ex- perience has'shown'the present- plant is inadequate to supply the present needs of the city and -inadequate to a greater degree when the future requirements of the city are consid- ered. The plant was practically con- demned by the Fire Underwriters Association. The present insurance rate is allowed on city property only on the understanding that the pres- ent plant will be replaced by one that is safer both in itself and as a means of protection for the city. The chances are that if the citizens turn down the proposal to erect a new power plant they will lose more- jin increased insurance than they would save in taxes. These things are or should be apparent to' The question of the cost of th? new plant is one that the -tvsrage citizen must leave to some whom h can trust. Not one man in fifty knows the comparative values of dif- ferent boilers, engines, gener i crs, switchboards, etc., and ;t is foolish- ness for him to attempt to discus.1? matters of which these are a part. The only thing to do wfm ihe shareholders of a mne or railroad company would do ths same conditions. They would trust th.; dilectors to get a e-npineer who has. proved himself trustworthy and reliable and would simply agree to the report engineer. That seems to be the "only course open to the citisens of Lethbridge. The coun- cil as the directors of the city secur- ed a capable engineer to report. At "the election of last December the elec tors voiced their approval of the ac- tion of the appointee. The re- port HM been received and has b'en satisfactory to the directorate of the ished out a passenger who had been oaking in the river half an hour.
