So keen are thi Jpeople after things temporal there ;-ca.n, be no harm come from a special "emphasis placed occasionally on the ,life not made up of real estate and other commercial operations. While (-3io one would attempt to deny that (the Churches are doing an immense of good, the introduction of .special effort such as the present to toe more designed to chal- lenge attention and turn the thoughts 'towards the flncr parts of one's bcinj. Man is not averse to recognizing the ethical and spiritual demands of his life, but he is prone to forget them in the keenness of the rush for other things, and It seems as IE adversity or sonie special visitation is occasion, ally, required to bring him to a real- of obligation. A preacher like Mr. 'Bull who has sounded such a clear, healthy note, could not help but attract attention, and there is every reason for satisfaction that lie is drawing such pleasingly large congre- gations and giving a, message which seems to meet with marked accept- ance. If Mr, Bull only succeeds In getting a few of the Intelligent men, who are following his sermons with deep interest, to realize what they could do for the moral uplift of the city, his mission will have counted much for Lethbridge regardless of class or creed.

The men on strike have a right to a board to consider their grievances even though they did not belong to a union at al They are the employees of the one concern, and their demands are en ytled to fair consideration. The fact that the C. P. R. is so strenuously resisting the demands of the ,men for arbitration-lends'color to the suspic- ion that they are afraid of the out- come. -Men receiving forty dollars a mouth and working ten hours a day would be ablc'lo" present a fairly strong case before any board thatj might be appointed. The C. P.

Mr, Crctlvers would be well advised in reconsidering his position IN THE EVENT of the ratepayers votiug, once again, in favor of .the direct commission plan of govern nient, it will be necessary, iu the n city charter, to state the salaries thai shall be paid. The city council, for some reason oi other, naiued in question number two of tho plebiscite, the sum of as the cost of an appointive commis- sion. 'Accordins: to newspaper re- ports, question number thi-ee, which deals with the direct commission plan', no mention what- ever Is made of salaries. It would seem that tinder the direct -plan an annual salary of or at the most per commissioner would be sufficient. As the city grows and the duties of the different departments incre'ase, a further division of the departments will probably be necessary and addi- tional commissioners will have to be added until there are, in all, about five departments and five commis- sioners. With the direct commission plan once established this would be a mat- t-er about which the ratepayers could use their own judgment. If they con- sidered an Increase either in the number of commissioners or in the salaries paid, they can cause such changes to take effect; If "the ratepayers any proposal of this nature to be undesirable, .the referendum would give, a majority of tho ratepayers the power to prevent it taking effect. The ratepayers, however, may ex- pect to pay a salary of at least per year. Neither, if we -think thtr matter over, "will this figure appearj excessive. In the affairs of a private business cpncern of the magnitude of'tho business of the cttj ot' Lethbridge, the necessary efficien- cy and watchfulness would not be looked for from gratuitous or half- paid services. Nor should one look for or expect it in public affairs. Hu- man nature is the same in public as in private affairs. If you want the best you pay for .it in the one case as in the other. This is true economy and the only road to efficiency In complex-affairs of magnitude and im- is because this element- ary and self-evident rule is disregard- ed in the present system of civic gov- ernment that much of the trouble arises. "We must nay for the service required in the administration of the city's business as a business man, or corporation, would pay for like ser- vice. Then we may expect the ability and character and the cn-ergy requir- ed. We have no right to expect it now. We try to impose our burdens upon others and rob them of the time, the skill and the force which these burdens require. In the venture we arc robbed ourselves, and we have no just cause of complaint. A Scotch lady gave her servant girl ten pounds upon which to get ma-r- ried. 'The 'bridegroom turned out to be halt, deaf and blind of an eye. When the mistress remonstrated, tho maid replied: "But, ma'am, what can you expec' for ten The ques- tion applies to our city' affairs and the reply is obvious. We get what we pay for. Efficiency which is con- tinuous and tireless is worthy of its hire.] and it 'will save that hire many tiuies over in the management of de- tails and in accomplishing results.

There is a rumor afloat that an in- dustrial commissioner may be en- gaged for next year to handle a cam- paign under the direction of the city council. This has been found to be the wisest courne in other cities. U would be undoubtedly the best course to follow here provided the work wag taken up seriously, and followed along aomo definite plan. What might be a definite plan? LethbrJdge haB decided against the bonuB. Therefore H would be foolish to land a commissioner out after in- which have little or no bear- ing on local conditions.

There are other lines of industrial development along which some pion- eer work might bo done, with the beet sugar factory nt Raymond why should there not b0 a candy factory and a vinegar factory? There are also possibilities to be realized from a utilization of flax waste, Thcro might follow a tannery, a cheese fac- tory or a butter factory. A mill for grinding alfalfa to make the alfalfa rnoal in demand in dairies would be in order. There are some of the possibilities; what are the ratepayers going to do aliout it?
