Ever since 1915 they have been working spasmodically to find a solution. The Board ot Trade also carried on quite a correspondence with Government exports and others, and about the only possible solution in sight was the purchase of a special submarine weed saw. The city purchased such a saw, but wo are told that it was ti failure here, though in other iilaces,- notably Harrlsburg, It" did excellent work In a'lako 12? acres in exteaV whjch.ft xonslderably larger than Henderson Park lake. Last year tl^e conncU decided that the. saw ^helhod would have to bo abandoned and It,was.decided to drain the lake, though Commissioner Graco had writteu the Board of Trade In German Poles In Baltimore aro asking exemption from the alien enemy regulations.

Thwa are those who will say that . Hev.' Mr. Snow la reprehensible lor publ'iahlQg the tact that during the past alx months tb�re have been more than 30 tilrths out ot -wedlock In the ctty of Lethbrldge. Aad The Her- aid wlU be blamed for reporting the ' atatement. The old argoment will be used that tho publicity will be bad adTertlalag lor^Qie city. But. in Om opinion of The Heral^ the fact tliat 15 per cent ad Letb-brldce'e btrtlirate during the past �iz moutliB is due to llleglmacy la an wpallinK one, and the only remedy to prevent a ooatlauance of the 'aituatlon is the 'vrtiHe light of pub-UcHy. And while 'Rev. Mr. Snow made-it clear In has sermon that he -was not having a alam at tho city, nevertheless tha facts brought out aj-e aucih as to give the conunlssloner of police and safety pause aa to whether or ;not the argument, that the recognition - ot a 'segregated dietrict is the ..'best prevention tor t�ls eort ^of '* tiling, is not fallaolous. It fe a j>lg question which is a live topic In Lethbridgo Just at present, and the subject should-not tie - allowed to drop from any sense of jfalse mod-jesty. ,Rev. -iir. Snow is a man who is not actuated by any-ulterior mo-.;tlve tin exposing- conditions. He cannot be charged ~ vrlth seeking cheap \ publicity.

The city now has a 'half-drained lake and  tToeen't know- -what, to do with it. As it stands, it is no attraction for the public and certainly won't help the street car revenue. Being only partly drained, tho council doesn't know whether to turn the water In and chance it that the weeds won't grow again, or keep the water out and keep the weeds down for the rest of the year. May -The Herald suggest that nothing be done until some definite plan is arrived at The sohemes tried so far have been of the hit or miss variety which have produced Just abou{ one result, definite knowledge that the lake cannot bo wholly drained through the sewer-a fact one would have expected the commissioners to be possessed ot, from reference to the office data, before the decision to drain the I'ako'WTis arrived at. ."May 25th has been named for the enrolment of women voters in New York State.

S. school histories which throw a wrong reflection on tie British people in their part^of'the war ot Independence. � A -writer in a coast paper who Is strongly urging such action says: �William Pitt, referring to the hilr-Ing ot Hessians to fight the colonists, uttered these -words: "Were I an American, as I am an Bngliahman, and a iloreign troop were landed on my shore, I � never w;ould lay down my arms.
