THE AND PUBLIC OFFICIALS 5 DUEL which is going on between' the Calgary Herald ami Commissioner Samis is from a newspaper ami a public standpoint. There apparently has existed some'sort a feud between the Commissioner.an'd the paper, and culminated in the police being called in to eject the reporter "of. the Herald from a council meeting.' The grievousncss of-his .offence was that he had misrepresented Mr. Samis in making him appear to have lost his temper.: Nothing daunted the offending "incmber appeared at the next meeting, and when his colleagues iiefusedMo support Hie aggrieved Commissioner in once more ihe reporter to withdraw, he hastily left tbe council chamber. There is much of the boy slill existent in many men, ami il showed itself in the conduct of the Calgary Commissioner, It does not do for public men lo be loo thin-skinned. From Ihe .nature of.their calling they are bound to be subject to mars, or criticism. This ought lo be taken as a complimenl than for if a man is not vorth criticizing he is worth liiolhing at all. The asserting of a brief authority in forcing a press reporter for personal reasons to' from what is a public meeting is neither in good fas'terior'in'the general interesls of the public. In such meetings ihe newspaper represents the public. To the ;prcss Hie public are indebted for information which otherwise .they may nol be the circumstances of things, lo obtain. ;'Ar.y public feels'1 himself the subject of misrcprc- iientalion'has his legal remedy, and arbitrary methods arc not lo 'he encouraged.' There is not a doubt that reporters carry a responsibility as '.to what should, ami what should nol, be advisable made ;public. To the credit of reporters in gcuci'd Shis is as a rule carried out. If there, is anything in their reports which might liable to hurtitoo tender feelings it may be agreed thai there: no spiteful motive in il. If the particular malicr was objccl- lo in the proper spirit Iherc would certainly be no reiiclilion, What is required is a broudniindedncss and a tolerance amongst public men. The man who is essentially entitled lo that denomination is he who ignores trifles. On public grounds liny alfempt to shut out or discriminate hcl'.vecn members of the press is nof good policy. At all events if, a remedy for griev- ances is needed let il be the one which is available to all cilizcns. It is nol seemly for public oflicials to exceed this. "EVERY MAN TO HIS JOB" THE CITY COUNCIL made a bad (ac'fical blunder the oilier day.when they dismissed Ihc genera! foreman of She water- works dcparlmenl. Their action has already destroyed (he dis- cipline of (ho department affected ami, indirectly, a blow lias Tiuii'Mla.v, May bivu aimed al the orjyniraliou of every older iU-p.irlmciit ju tho city. ThcccuneiUshiiuld made the dismissal without con- sulting the head of iiu- drp.ii tmc-nt, City Engineer lllanchard. As head of the department, there must be such i-oultdoiuv in his ability that interference over his heiul should Jiot be needed. If he is control ami lu's department the council should act through him, nol around him. blunder was n bat! one, striking at Ihe very roots of depurlinriil orUiiniznlioii. The motive of the was right enough. Hut why not llie city eugiurer called in? Why was not Ihe matter bandied! the XVorks and Properly Commit proper chan- nel? The council wanted to reduce expenses in the engineering ileuartmcnl. The Works and Properly Commillee is responsible for the department. The proper proccdviro, then, would imvu been to have instructed the Works and Properly Committee to bring in their rccnmmendulions to the whole council as lo bcsl Ihe reduction might he effected. I The romViiltec would have called the cnginctr into consul-' laliou. The stuff of Ihe department would have been thoroughly investigated at .the mAling and any ivcommcndidinn of the] committee would luive beeii with flic knowiedgv, and vcrv likely Ihe consent of the engineer. Xuboiiy's authority woultl have been destroyed, ami the head of Ihc department would have had enough influence with the committee th.il, if dismissal wore tnatle, he would have in mind aixilliei m.-m of the staff to put in charge of the The trouble is not with the system of allowing Die of departments as full as possible a measure of control of their re- spective organizations. The trouble this year lies in a lack of council organization. Not enough work is placed nn the should- ers of the committees. For some reason or other liicrc is no team play in getting the work of Ihe council done. Instead of coining lo the Hirelings, each committee ready lo report, they come and every Hem of business is discussed pro and con, with no one. knowing very definitely the inside facls of the matter under discussion. Even the chairman of committee is as much at sea as an alderman on an entirely different committee who has not delved into the matter at all. The result is that much work devolves upon Ihe mayor which should be handled by commillecmen, and !hc council is iu danger of becoming a one-man organization, instead of the splendid example of team-play it might be.

Naturally, in service, the Suck-on piece soon wears loose. Some tire users 'don't know what's going on in their lires until one day they find "loosening of the tread." '._ Unless your anti-skid is a Dunlop Traction Tread you have a sTuck-on-tread tire. We control the only successful way to make a built-into tread tire. That's why Dunlop Traction Tread is the most envied tire in all America. of motorists say: "Dunlop Straight Side, with or without Traction Tread, is the one tire which never- did rim-cut." -Dunlop Straight Side Tires have a larger air capacity than 'any of heir tires made-iri-Ca'nada.
