J ' A Radial Railway IT IS.HARDliY NBCESS.^iRY to say that most of the agitation in tlie city for the Alberta government to erect a traffic bridge at Diamond City was inspired by a desire to get : the city linked up by a radial railway with the mining communities across ' tho river. The idea generally held �was that the Letlibridge street rail-i way would extend Its lines to tap ' this section of the district tributary '[ to the city. Along this" line It is : worth considering now whether Letli-. bridge can expect for some years to ' undertalie such an important and expensive an obligation. "We all, the most orus anyway, teel that the city Is at the stage when it must hold hack from further het violated If within their power to prevent it. and to prosecute when they know ilic law is being dis regarded. It Is not necessary for the police to ask tho aldermen whether they shall proceed against evil doors or not. They must prosecute or be stamped aa perjinors. No civic body has the right to override the law or wink at Immorality. The police have no more right to condone one offence than another. Tlu'rctoro it is uu necessary to consult the aldermen.

Box 1979 l>lioiMl291 J, 6.-LETHBRIDGE HAS OUTGROWN THE PRESENT SYSTEM A BUSINESS MAN or corporation which confided to a body - like the average city council, the carrying on bt a business the size and volume of the business ot the city of Lethbrldge would, unless it was purposely intended to wreck that business or piit it Into bankruptcy, be considered insane. We consider ourselves as businesslike a people as any in the world; yet we persist in the idea that six or seven aldermen with all kinds,ot potions, all kinds of platforms and all kinds of n.veg to grind, whose energies are sorely taxed with businesses of their own; can, by attending stated meetings in the evening every, two weeks and special meetings every once in a ^-hile, elllc-ieutly adtainister the affairs of the City of'Lethbrldge. Such a system may have suffleed in olden times; it may still work sufficiently well in small (owns, or even in fair size io^vn^ iii older communi- ties, where there is little or no growth and where there are comparatively few large public undertakings contlHUOusly nnder way. But public business in the city of Lethbrldge, which has gone so whole hear^edjy in tor municipal ownership,'has become, too complex, of too great magnitude, too expensive, and demands too much constant and exhaustive energy to be left to the care ot bi-weekly meetings and the almost beggarly attention that a board of.,aldermen, burdened with their own affairs, are able to bestow upon. It,, .. ' : A "s'tage-otjaqfi'^', systent of ^clvic^ov. ernment ha8,\a^jed into'those days of the wireless message and the aeroplane; \h re-,adjustment is necessary. We mijstja4ap.t our public business to liieet motfe^-n conditions.

Western the coijimence-menf ot the second decade of the twentieth century. � -.i hand in hand. That fact has been proven by e.xperience right here in Southern Alberta. If, therefore, the government can so dispose the leases ot the available prazing lands as to make them available for summer pasture for farmers carrying bands of sheep, it would seem to be quite evident that they would be doing the greatest good to the greatest number. They would he jrromotlng prosperity tor the year round over a large area, �whereas, -by placing all the foothill grazing laiid In tho hands. ot  what miigt necessarily be a comparatively small nuinber/ot cattlemen, they will be,working advantage to the few, and the country as'a. whofe will lose accordingly.. '� The Herald-itiellevcB that the cattle Industry should be fostered. It believes that the cattiemeit"should liave equal rights to grazing lands with any other parties � desirous of obtaining .them. But tliat is as far" as their rights go, and .there does not seem to be much doubt that the Ranching Commission will make their recom-mehdatlbtis along that" line. It will place all on' an equal footing, and mixed farming, which soeins bound to come, will come all the Booner. OUR POINT OF VIEW r i The question now Is,'will the alder, jnauic-dresaing forl'SlShave-.siiBe in ,lt or not. .; There is promise ot enough new 'hlood- in tho alderroanic contest this yehr to furnish snap and bright ideas.

(Nelson News, Con.) It would be interesting, at least, to know why Hon. T. W. Crothers, minister of labor, refused the request ot the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Employees for a board ot conciliation Surely If these men have a grievance they have a right to have It inquired Into. Mr. Crothers, however, up to the present, so far as the Dally Ne^vs knows, has given no reason for his re-fusal. He might, at least, explain and perhaps the public would understand. A Tribute and'a Confatalon (From Gov. Wilson's speech at Wilmington, Del., October 17, 1912.)" Now there arises up In Wisconsin that indomitable little figure of Bob La FoUette. 1 tell you,'ladies and gentlemen, I doff my cap to Bob La FoUette. He has never taken his eye for a single moment from the goal he set out to reach. He has walked a straight line to it in spite of every temptation to look to one side. Do you remember that story in the "Arabian Nights" of the man who 'was sent on a quest to the top of a great mountain to bring an enchanted bird that was there singing loViely In a cage, and how he was warned that he must not heed any voice by the wayside, that he would find the way side strewn with great stones, that every one' of these stones was some traveller in quest of that enchanted bird who had allowed himself to be drawn aside, and had turned back at the sound of some voice-for the very stones, cried out-and just so siirely as he looked agide or turned hack, ho himself would be transfixed and turn ed into a stone? I have sometimes thought of Senator Uv FoUette climb Ing that mountain ot privilege jn order to take away the only precious thing that was in it, naiholy, tho rights of the people of tho United WOODROW WILSON A MKIIITY HUNTER Commission form of government is going to bp a live issue in the campaign., Candidates and all ratepayers would be Weir advised In following closeiy the series of excellent articles appearing dally in the Herald.
