REGISTRATION YESTERDAY'S SEANCE in the city council chambers should be enough to convince the people of this city that registration of voters is the only satisfactory solution of She problem "of com: piling a voters' list Registration has been urged by the Herald before.- Now is the time to urge it again. the council, sitting as a court of revision-yesterday, cudeavr ored to pass on the qualifications of applicants without the pres- ence of those making application. themselves power- Jess to do anything because they couIcTnat geflhe information necessary. :Xo niatler what decision Ihey arrive at, there will be some discontent, because some' who may have had the same qualifications, made no attempt to be placed on.the list, not caring tqi take thechance. Rcgistnilion of voters is the way to get over the difficulty. Applicants ui.ay" then" tic sworn as to qualifications. Ii will re- move much responsibility from.the the council or commission at'lie head of affairs. TO HEDGE. MEDICINE HAT TIMES declares it never said that il wns f opposed lo '.urning over the natural resources to a Liberal government in (his to tjuote ifs.-R-ards: In regard to'ihe nardral resources the stand ive took' j- 'was and_is thai'ould turned over ;to the province uhtii-such .'time'as af capable government is.- placed in control of the Alberta; -It is not diffi- cult to prove theincompeleiKiy Sifton administra-.- i i i" Now we all know that the Times, faithful Conservative jour- nal is, would never admit Alherta to be capable unless it was; Conservative. cSo when it makes such a professjon merely hedging, all. Mr. Borden's dcclara- tjftn.was, thai Ihe natural, resources woiild be turned over to the western provinces, as soon as he came, to power. There were no qualifications whatever. The considerations of "Liberal" am "capable" governments have been an afterthought of politicians .like-Hon.-Robert Rogers. The Times we-fear is at their scrvict irt _ NEW CHIEF'MUST H'AVE'FREE.HAND. WHAT CAUSE of C.hitf It ha: all along been thought il was .dut'.to'fack of sympathy on the part of the city council with his recommendations arid sug geslions. The Edmonton in commenting upon bis appointment as Deputy Chief in that refers lo his wor] here and says: little'over one year ago he was asked to take.charge o the Lcthbridge rleparlment for the purpose, of ridding the south ern city of disreputable houses and oilier notorious joints. Fol lowing the cleaning up some of the, aldermen became dissatisfied -and after a scries of events Dnyis resigned his position." This would appear as thoiigli llie Davis policy was opposed Certain actions of the might bc'mtcrpreled in such a waj but the appointment of Chief Skclton os his. successor seemed tc i establish that the council was in sympathy with the Davis policy Anyway, the old council is passing but of existence and a new hotly will soon control civic affairs. For the Herald's par want to say that we have full confidence in Chief Skclton ant thai any interference -with his conduct of police affairs would be unwise and the'majority of Lclhbridgc people. .11 i' must be given n. free hand in perpetuating the policy of Chic liavis! Lethbridge must retain its place as'a clean, respectable few-abiding city.

If there was sufficient crooked work in' the' Macdomdd elec- ion to vitiate seven hundred majority, -how.'crooked was that leclion?

OPTIMISM WORTH HEEDING' The Conservative press persist that statements in the press that Mr. Bordeii is-a sick man are untrue. However; the Montreal Mail, which is so far real independent, says: A gentleman who spoke with a Daily Mail rcpre-' sentalivc, on his arrival from Ottawa, said: "It is rathey silly to see the government papers denying the reports of..... Mr. Bordcri's ill-health. As a matter of fact the Daily. Mail was quite right in paving that he was ordered south by his physicians. lie is-a sick man.
