THE WEEKLY HE.BALO, 1 year in advance Jl.OO t montii in JUDICIAL SALARIED SHE question of the salaries of judges t'ormeu 1; the' subject of some discussion at Uie_Hpuse jit Ottawa. The argument was put forward -that cent. of_judges in Canada today jvere paid'mdre, as judges than they ever earned while practising at tlie-bar, and Jif tjvper centxrf the judges-did not to york as hard after-their'appointment as they did before their elevation 1o.thebench. This VBS no doubt" inten'ded as a'ieason whj increased. points the other v6y: 'JThe opinion expressed is, after all, an individual one for the purpose of backing up an argument. It cannot be regarded as'beifig entirely the truth, otherwise it a mild reflection on a part of the present holdefs of judicial offices. Nothing of this nature was possibly intended. i The words of the member for Kings and Al- bert N. B..can simpljvbe taken on their merit as a point forrargunient." a doubt that the attraction to the judicial bench in many cases is the position of dignity which it comprises, and if fsTiot only tne pecuniary value of the position which is taken into account, and "so sacrifices in income are frequently made. But in the scheme of human nature the dignity of a position alone does not sufflce'to make it of general attractive- ness. There is something more than this needed iLa high standard for the administration.of jus- lice is to be maintained. In comparison to the salaries of judges else- wnere, for instance in the High Courts of Eng- land, the salaries of the judges appear-inadequate, The matters on which' they may have to pass judgment are not possibly so complsx in the. gen- eral as those brought forward in English courts. But still, they do arise, and with a growing. Do- minion are apt to become complex and more fiequent.. With the time devoted-to their labor, and the ability needed to deal with matters brought before them, our judges are.deserving'of more than they are receiving. That, is on the understanding that judicial positions are liition of the shrewdest and sanest minds in the bar. The remark of the member of Kings and Al- hert as to judges not having to work as hard after their appointment as before, if true, counts for nothing; Ease is, or should be, part of a com- pensation. This with compensating salaries should be the means for carrying put a policy 'which in its initiation was intended fpr realising jsvhat the essence of judgship should imply. and no one could give a definite decision as to which body ruled. If ihc.grounds are to be sTsburceT of revenue to the" city, and the different athletic arid other organizations merely want a definite .idea as, to their leeway in order to make a there nhist'Ee definite understanding between the igricultural-board and the council. Applicants :or privileges are buffeted about from one io the o'ther, and after permission is granted they bump into some other club or faction, In addition to this understanding there must be an open-door policy with regard to the use of" tKe as well as the buildings. There will never be a sur- plus on the Red Car line until the sporting'frater- ies in the city are made to feel at home at Hen- derson Park. i OTTR POINT OF VIEW A general election or civil war is the ultima- tum of a quota of anti-Home Rulers just now. Perhaps a series of football matchcirm'Belfast would fill the-bill just as.well. Macleod's second market day brought out twice as many farmers as the flrst. Lethbridgc should lose no time in establishing a market here. When economy is being practised is the logical time to inaugurate a market. It pretty certain then of patrons on both the buying and. selling ends. The story in the Herald last night showing the delinquent tendency of some of bur boy .popula- tion will serve as a warning to parents that'the curfew bell is not supposed to be a cure-all for all the wayward tendencies of boyhood. The home is the: place for training children, and not .the de- linquent court. Mexicans fearing the arrival of Villa with his threatened guillotine in Mexico City are1 fleeinf for their lives to Vera Cruz and the protection ol the American flag. Retribution seems to be jal- loping toward Huerta at a pace which threatens hi mdire things. Huerta's power is founded on the ruthless assassination of a feUowcpuntryman and the'fate -approaching him is quite to be peeled. SHOULD BE AN UNDERSTANDING; seems to be a general feeling about town that the commissioners are shirking certain responsibilities. A few days ago the Lethbridge Cricket Club, tone of the best sport organizations in the city, ._ applied to the commissioners in council, for the jight to use one of the booths at the exhibition grounds from which they might dispense refresh- ments. The request was referred to the Exhibi- tion Board, whereas the council granted the Cric- l kqt Club the right to use the grounds, without asking that body. Whether this is a dodge to es- iape responsibility or nut, is not for us to decide, i' but we would like to be informed as to just where agricultural board's jurisdiction begins and ends, with regard to the exhibition grounds, and lo just what extent the council controls these and buildings. Another instance of con- I i. flict is cited in the case of the Band and the Turf iTJub. The council gave the. City Band the ex- clusive right (o the use of the grounds for May (ts 25lh and the manager of the exhibition board told the Turf Club that they might stage a race meet on the same date. When the latter came to do their advertising, tliey collided wth the Band, The city commissioners seem to be up agains a stone wall on the library The burg esses have decided on the and the Laird jo: Skibo has promised to put up'the'build ing, but where the or more to furnish the volumes is coming from is the question now. An< whether, to ask the ratepayers' to shoulder a bur den of or more annually for maintenance in these troublous times is another serious ques- tion. There is not the shadow of a doubt that thi people as a whole want a library, and right away too. There is no doubt cither that it would help tone up the community. But the money question is causing more than a little worry; Therefore we might suggest that the commissioners, afte finding out whether the if still fbrthcom ing in case it is desired to erect the library, mit a bylaw to raise for the volumes. Then the people who have to foot the bills could decide. If it should then to happen that the people do not want to undertake the bur len at the present time, it might be wise to sihout for a temporary location for a library.in some central building. A start could be mudeiii the procuring of the necessary volumes, to tjia when the citizens felt, at some future date tha they could undertake the full burden, there wpivU be a nucleus of a library to start with, and in fh meantime the public would have been educate to advantages of the institution thereby pit! ting themselves in n better position to make the best use of it. ff it IN LETH BRIDGE fj Business Houses Can Buy Anything That Can Be Pro- op Paper in This City You Caii Pfocure- EMBOSSED WORK LITHOGRAPHING LOOSE LEAF GOODS COMTEJ CHECK BOOKS AND JOB CUTS, etc. IN LETHBRIDGE We Are Agents for onte of tlie Largest Printing Houses in the and send them any work tnat cannot be pro- duced in this I, city t We simply want to "show you."
