THE STREET RAILWAY FRANCHISE .Without a doubt, the most import- ant by-law ever submitted to the rate- payers of the city of Lethbridge, is that concerning the franchise for a private -owned street railway. The complete provisions of this measure appear in another section of The Hex- aid today and every citizen should read the by-law careroiiy and consider the provisions seriously. As far as The Herald can grasp the feeling of the public, tie vote on the by-law -will not be so much as to whether the .agreement with the pri- vate company is good" or' bad, but is private -ownership to be preferred to municipal ownership. It is safe to say fche issue with very many ratepayers is pJibEc or private ownership. On this side of the water municipal owner- ship of street railways has been under- taken in very few cities. G-uelph, Ont., practically owns all its public utilities and was one of the first cities "street''railway, and in recent years this road has been, profit- bearing. Guelph is -a city of about and its street railway is great- ly advanced by reason of the location of the Ontario Agricultural College. Jtfany excursions come to that insti- tution all parts of Ontario and the street railway is the means of conveyance from the depots to the college. St. Thomas, Ont., on the oth- er hand, finds its street railway a heavy load to carry. It is a -city some- what larger than Guelph, and it is' spread out over a large area, but its railway been a loser. Yearly con- siderable money has to be voted out of current municipal revenue to pay its deficits. The -only other cities in Canada with municipal owned street railways are in Alberta, Calgary and Edmonton, and, according to all the information at hand, these roads are paying- a handsome profit and have dom; so from the start. It i only fair to point out, however, that both cities are twice as large j'-s The company which seoks a fran chi-ft i-j this city composed of local RUMI and one of criticisms offered is that this company, is seeking the franoJii.se with a view to dispo'sme or it at a large profit. No evidence that -such is has been offered, but it would bo. well if the company made a statement to meet that charge The ratepayers in dealing with thi one of the hardest work- ing and best informed imm of the legislature, and while in the house has beon a useful member. It, is dtvplv ivtiTt'tted that Mr. ;Mc- health is .-ueh as to cause him to retire from the arona of public life.
