Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 13, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta m DiUy Heroli nd ...... M.II yaw. by mil ...... IJ� .....^'m^.. M oltaa M , Indi bal bolb Mw ud old AddMii SMt be fiven. HON. FRANK OLIVER llio. Toronto World suggiosts that Hon. Frank Oliver may succccU^the lato Udni. Tlios. Oreuiiway on the llailwny Commiseiou. No bottor man could be chosen, for Mr. Oliver knows the needs of the West better thou any other mon, and he is uo^ tangled up with any corporatloiks and would sec thai the people wore faiily and square ly treated. But Mr. Oliver is needed more in I'arllamout. Uis understanding ot western needs demands his presence, in the Cabinet, where he Iins already given ttiJs country splendid service. He is an honest, (earless public man, whose aim is to servo the people and we cannot n fiord to lose him. COMMISSIONS TO OPERATE PUBLIC UTILITIES The Herald wishes to impress upon the ratopoyers and the property owners ol Lcthbridgu the great importance, in a successful municipal ownership policy, of liaving the separate public utilities managed by separate elective commissions, unless where two utilities ore handled by the same superintending staff, when one commission might cover the utilities. We must start right. � An elective commission of three, composed of the Maj'or and two commissions, the latter elected for two year terms, one retiring or coming up for re-election each year, has been found in Canada to be altogether the most successful administration for a public utility. When commissioners have to be elected for a certain specified duty, the j-atepaycrs almost invariably gut the services of some of the best bu.'incss heads in the city. And the reason ia obvious. Busy men handling largu concerns will serve on these crimtiu% sions when they will not serve on lhi> Council, because on the Commission they have a certain specified linn^ of worl to be administered on busine.�s principles which will not involve too great a tax on their time and thought, and in which they have a reasonably free hand. The smaller body works more harmoniously and intelligently, handles its business and .staff more systematically, has greot-er Control over its officers and, above ull, secures a certainty oJ policy, a following up of well thought out plans from year to year, more thaii is possible with a larger body, chang ing from year to year, and concerned with a multiplicity of other important duties. There Ls not a city in Ontario that tho Herald knows of but what has found the Commi.sslon idea of manage nient far prcferublo to that of a Committee of Council, It is the success of tho Conimlfi.siou idea which has spelt success for municij al ownership in Ontario; which has brought tho Kiaga'. � power movemcr.t with all its woni (ivl economic po.ssibilitics into being, and the strength of that movement con bo guago srhools under council manngomont. Tho morn definite thi> work and tho duty, the greater the control, tho bettor the service, tho larger the returns, and the more clear cut the responsibility to tho ratepayers. It moans money, it mean.s satisfaction, to the people. W ot Ihl^' hoard. Th�M li ntt.bttW onr�n.l�fttioiB. In exittenc* for pl^mot^ InilC tho commcrclftl welfare of the city.

Lot the good work begin this ycor. ^n as.sembldge of citizens around; tho festive board is what is required to bring about a better understanding between our jjeoplc. At such a (tine-tion affairs of vital interest to our city could be freely and frankly discussed. Tho Board of IVadc would be. strengthened In its aim to build up the city and we are confident great er unity would exist amongst our people in tho object, wc all have at heart, tho development of Lethbrldge along broad and sound lines. iltflHTA, FfltOAV.

Tlie growing of oranges upon a commofcinl basis is marking a new epoch in the devolopmorit of Bee county," snid W.O. McCunly of BcF-villo. "Bee county is the, home of the original Dugat orange. This tree, by the way, is now more than twenty-throp years aid; it is .still bearing fruit, and it is the mother of raoro that! 100,000 trees planted all the way from Florida to California. .Oranges were grown until two years ago cither for ornamental purposes or (or tho plea.sure of having them, but now it is a business. "Just n year ar so ago an orange grower of California canifr to Bee-ville and after n thorough investigation of the situation set out about 30,000 treos. Others have gone into tho extensively, mol-p, than .100,000 trees laving been pet out iu:it spring, some of which aro bearing alroady.
