THE WEEKLY HERALD Published every Wednesday In eight Qr more pases and contains a summary of the news of Uu fpeek local and uistiict 8 months In COMMISSION GOVKRNMENT ARE coming to Finding out that the old cumberstone aldermamc council is a foozle nine cases out of ten, the cities nre casting about for something that will gne better results and they are finding it in cominis sion government There are a dozen different forms of commission government, but "tliey all head the same auth- ority and responsibility. Here is Uie Canadian Couner.saja about it in a recent editorial under" the caption English Municipal i Many people seem to thmlj thai the idea city being governed by a "commission'1 or bj "a municipal manager" is a purily American idea, and that the British people no sympathy with such ideas. Tilts, -however, is not the case Leeds has lust adopted the two ideas IB a modi- S-- 1 lied form. Leeds is a cih of people, and'has a municipal council of CS members, of whom 16 labour men Finding itielf recently banip- ered by a strike of civic ees, the citv coun- cil resoried to exticme measures If appointed a committee of seven aldermen to run (lie city, and these seven men appointed i a Mr. Hamilton, manager of the civic street car lines, as responsible only to Ihe cominttee Instead of meeting once a week, the council will meet once -in three months. All the to he done by the Committee Of Seven and the Boss. This change m method wa.s brought., abo.ut :mainly through the efforts, of1 prominent business man, who proved that -the city Was being badly mil. He found.the depart- ments were the pay-sheets were padded, that useless officials were drawing incompetence rifejin iill the "departments. He proposed to run the city OB business piinciples, and the'council" adop ted suggestions. All this adds proof that municipal'govern- ment is face to fade with "the" same' It matters not Whether it; is iToronto, Montreal, New York or St. Louis. 'The old system of government by ah elective council is breaking down under the strain of- modern conditions, and especially municipal ownership. The United States people, more daring arid ven- tturesome, have abolished their city councils and appointed commissioners. The English people, being less revolutionary, are compromising and to combine the two ideas, as Calgary, Ed- monton, Moose Jaw, Regina and Saskatoon have done for ten years. Efficiency in city government cannot be se- cured under an elective city fcyuncil unless that council will vest administrative authority, .in-, .a commission or a boss. That is the lesson, and the sooner such cities as Montreal, Toronto, ind Ottawa learn the belter 'government in Lelhbridge's experience -with commission government so far has been: highly If we continue as we "have begun, we .will be, a beacon light to these other like Montreal, Toronto, Leeds and New York; where they have found that something must be done to make con-? ditions bearable. PROVINCIAL FINANCES HON. C. R. MITCHELL, treasurer of the Pro- vince, has announced that the Prnv- Ince has sold to the Spencer, Trask Co., of New f, York sufficient bonds to take, up all Alberta's trcaiury (hus financing (he province until V ftfch time' may be come 'heoessary to issue for capital expenditure." This places A1- jj' berta on sound financial, footing and in a posi- tion of security which should to every Albertan in these times when money is not tasy to get Alberta has come through'the, period of financial stress with flying colors. Our govern- ment has safeguarded our finances on evejy turn and with the return of good times and esaiei money we will bo m a position to go forward without fear from anj old scores. The Opposi- tion scare that our finances were in a deplorable condition is without foundation, and luckily has done no apparent harm to our credit, much as some of the leaders, for party, purposes, might have desired THE MINISTER EDITOR-IN-CHIKF a if SATURDAY there appeared on the- streets jf Calgary a paper edited by a Calgary minis- ter. It was not a new star in the firmament It was the Calgary Western Stand- ard, a weekly which has been in the ffelij lor a jear or more Following the recent cnticisnx oft the press on the part of a the clergy of that city, it is interesting to note what Rey.I) R Sharpe has done as editor-in-chief during his at the helm. Certainly Mr Sharpe has nothing to be ashamed of. He has shown of home in journalistic work. The paper looka-the same and its comments are bnght and tot the minute. Mr Sharpe- has tabooed anything "sen- sational. In his handling of the oil boom, far as iv e can see, he has the arts But standing out above all has warning to ''ivestors in oil stocks to know what are imestmg in before parting wijh'feeir money. Mr. Sharpe has shown what one minister could do in the editorial chair We beljeye his experience will do him good, ftjr-he. will now be able to look through the probably be'able to enlighten spme'-of 'rcres in--thp city' as to .rightly be 'expected'from the press He .would do a 'the he would write his opinions on this, qitesuon, !based on his week's experience. Meantime, he has :hirned the oh the editors. Having accepted the challenge of the iress to undertake the work of edltor-ia-chief "or a week, hfi comes hack with: the following; We wonder what an editor of one of the Cal- gary papers would do in leading the woik in any one of the "churches. And in order that they may prove to the public that thev are as capable as the clergy, we invite them to undertake this task for a week. What Calgary editor has the nervp to fake rjiraup? OUR POINT OF VIEW Cardston.has the oil fever In other word it is suffering from "petrophobia May 24lh didn't bring rain, but we still have hopes that it will tMrn put to be the exception thatproves ,thc i Home Rule passed its th'rd reading jester- day. Will King Carson light? Or haying de- cided to take the matrimonial plunge, will he de cide that he may as well accept the inevitable now as later. The decision of the local oil company to have an expert pass upon the site for the well here is a good one and will inspire confidence. His re- port, may not be so rosy as those given out about other fields, but some of the best m the business have told us that it would not be a mutake to drill near Eethbridge, and we expect' expert who will be secured will tell us the same Any- way it is just a matter of opinion.
