Trains severe weather and storms have ncro a restaurant famous for 1U Citizens and Fires LETHBK1DGB lifts a fire depart- ment with all the ntecessary ap- paratus for fighting fires in a Icrty of thU size. The department has given good service In the past, so good, in fact, that the actual loss by -lire in the past year has been consid- erably less than ten per cent, of the On its past reputation, it may, therefore, be depended upon to give ,'3'ust as good service in the future. Why is it, then, that the people are i to prone, when a small fire breaks out In a residence, for instance, to ruih to the aid of the brigade which is always on the scene in time to pre- sent serious loss? It is proper that citizens should hare at hand such conveniences for checking fires as are customary, and it is likewise proper that they should be used judiciously Should the necessity arisu. But two or three times lately the department has been seriously ham pertd by the well meant, but badly ef fected, support of the neighbors who rush 10 the scene of a small fire. Windows are broken indiscrimin- ately, doors are thrown open on ev- ery hand, and, instead _of a small with-little real loss, the fire de- velops into a serious affair, before the brigade has time to arrive. This is so j particularly in residential districts and .more than one small blaze of late I has resulted in serious loss, whereas, Iliad the lire department left to handle It, they would have done so in a methodical manner, which would have resulted in the smallest possible loss. The brigade is employed by the citizens to fight fires, and the safest and most satisfactory way is to al- low them to do so without any outside interference whatever. A Citizens' Slate WITH the municipal election; less than a month distant, it behooves the ratepayers of the city to bring out three or four of the strongest mteii in the city to fill the vacancies created by the retiring of Aldermen Oliver and Frayne. Kach of those men has good work in the city government during his term, 'but each also feels that he has his own interests to look after, nnd is, therefore, willing to hand ov- er the reins to some other public spir- ited citizen. This brings up the question of mak- ing a choice of representatives for next year, and in this connection there are some [joints which should be given particular attention. First of all let the ratepayers choose men who have the welfare of the city at heart; who take a pride in their city's progress, and who carry them such prestige as will war- rant the confidence of the people as i whole. They must be men of business ab- ility. The council is responsible for a yearly expenditure of from a half to a million dollars. Place this re- sponsibility on the shoulders of keen, 'business men, who, in their private enterprises, ,havo proven themselves equal to the One great defect in the present form of municipal government Is that the best men very often are opposed to entering the civic arena. They are willing to do anything to help the city in a private way, but seem averse to devoting their time as mem- bers of the council. Very often their reason JB simply that they do not care io be the objects of the abuse so often heaped upon tbte municipal body. Overcome this, and get the- best men possible at the head of affairs by petitions showing them that they haw the support of a large number of the more influential ratepayers. Then nieii of the stamp Liethbridge needs for next year will as found, who will be willing to make some personal sacrifice for the good of the whole. L-et this done, too, without delay. Start a citizens' slate, of the beat available men, and with- out a doubt, Letlibrldge will have a city council for 1912 which will cope with the many matters, which will under consideration next year, in Biicli a manner EH will elicit the con- fidence and esteem of erery progres- sive ratepayer the city. A Rural Revolution IT IS EDIFYING to note how the principle of single tax as exem- plified by the taxing of land in Creat Britain, is affecting the coun- try. Many of the large landowners re trailing their land in anticipation of heavier taxation, and by this time there is becoming large percentage of small individual ownerships. There is a process of peaceful re- solution in the turning over of what pay be termed feudal ownership to private occupation. The authorities in the Old Country have grasped the importance of small holdings, and thereby an impetus U given to agriculture, and congestion removed -from the labor markets of the cities. County councils have the powor to buy land and resell or rant it to oc- eupylng tenants. T-t is worthy of observation that the aristocratic owners who are sailing their lands, are investing the pro- ceeds in Canada. A notable example is the Duke of Sutherland, who IB buying thousands of acres here. There is no thii to estab- lish feudal ownership here. But it is R philanthropic endeavor to give the Scotch peasantry a chance of making a 'comfortable living under new condi- tions. Whether this scheme of ten- ant farming will work out here is another question; every man has an opportunity of becoming his own freeholder. Still It gives the Old Country firmer a start, and this means much. It is also playing a great part in the development of tire n'inion. The charges made against 'ho Duke by newspapers, such 03 I a Frease, of Montreal, are mtersly hyp- ten "il. There is absolutely no ground fo; the belief that an attempt is be- fng made to establish largfc feudal dfnjB here, and that hii Grace is planning to retrieve his position in Canada. The Duke Js only exteajlng (lie principle at tenant and there is no reason why he should not be credited with motfvw. The cteiire of the Scotch farmers to emi- grate is checked by want of capital, and the Duk-e of Sutherland come to the rescue. The encouraging of small holdings in the Old Country Is a worthy one, not only In that it gives a man a chance of making a living, but also given him a personal Inter- est In bin labor whereby ha all its fruits. U means the raising of n prosperous-body of yeomen, who are practically the backbone of the coun- try.

A gentleman writing "To. the Edi- or of the New York and naving on his mind certain discern- ons of the old As tor library, the loss of which he mourns, and certain com- orts of the new library, the gaiu of vnich he regrets, thus describes him- self; "Being an old fogy, I naturally pre- er the restaurant with its sftiuted T, the open grill with the juicy cnops and steaks around you to make, individual choice, the tankard of ueer, and the churchwarden pipe, to ne n'aw f angled palaces of light and nwholesome food. On the same prin- iple, the old Astor library appealed o me a great deal more than the pre- ent overwhelming structure." it is pleasing to think we know and re fond of this type. Occasionally, ut not necessarily, its representatives arry gold-headed canes, wear gal- Bhes and white side whiskers. Their habits are precise, their man- era kindly, their courtesy smiling net genuine. They are reflective, ut not mentally adventurous. Their abit of politics is almost as set as leir habit of eating. Occasionally ae enjoys snuff and feels the loss of Alexander Hamilton. More frequently hey have, cherished recipes for pipe nxturea and are made indignant by ie modern cocktail. Moftern political opinion is likely to use in them the same feeling of au- gonism which Is aroused by the coat oom boys, who snatch their canes, ats and coats when they are so im- ortunate as to find their appetites trayed to a "new fanfled iwholesome food." in -spite of the fact that unevenly istribut'ed heat and drafts give them touch of rheumatism, they prefer an pen fireplace to a radiator, although ne latter would serve their comforts, bey like to do their own marketing delicacies, and favor- D restaurants to make a careful se- actlon own chops or steaka.

And yet the'total'majority In tho uiree great farming provinces of Ca-, midft in. favor oC reciprocity, freer ......j, or extended markets, call trade liberty by whatever name you please, was, in round figures Is there any doubting the sentiment or this section of Canada us to the need of markets for our surplus mil- lions upon millions of bushels of grain? In round figures there, are rim-fledged Canadians living west of me great lakes, who have registered, their approval of extended markets. Those citizens are not wedded to a re- ciprocity agreement, or any particu- t'orm of legislation, but clearly and emphatically they see, as any logical-minded man can see. that the development of Canada will be ser- iously checked, and the settlers on our will be deprivnd of a considerable measure of reward for aonest toil, if the Canadian West is to be restricted and" shackled in buy- ing and selling. As has been pointed out, repeatedly, Canuda "is forging ahead so rapidly as a wheat producer that no opportun- ity to enlarge the market for Canad- ian wh'eut iuul wheat flour should be permitted to pass unimproved. The growth-and prosperity of the West do .iot depend on the rapidity with which we can pump in immigrants, but oit our success in pumping wheat out at a price that will.enable it to find a ready market in the wheat-importing Lunintries. Canada has no tariff ad- vantages in selling her wheat. Our present parliament cannot afford, tnorefore, so to increase the cost of living in tlis Wlieat-growing provinces, oy tariff taxes as to prevent the grain: growers from producing wheat pric- 2S enabling them to compete with Ru's- na, Argentina, Australia, the Dumib- au provinces, and our othter chief riv- als." t What about tlie vast army of UUfl electors who voted for greater trade freedom? Will they remain In a-barely unorganized state? True, Tti'ey have chosen their representa- tives to speak for them in parliament, is 1C not necessary, in fact, impera- tive, that western organization against restriction should be greatly strength- ened? comparative mar- ket figures published from day to a ay, show conclusively that the farm- ers of the West are today being rob- uea of millions of dollars, all because, a set of politicians started the crazy .cry that "greater freedom in selling and buying meant the annexation of uanada to the United States. The less or from at least to to our farmers on this year's crop in felling, means just so much less money for our merchants anu the people of the country at mrge. The opponents of trade liberty in the three provinces are in a hope-. less minority. The majority should not submit. On the other hand, the1 West, the hone of Canada, should make it dear to Premier Borden, that white he is in power because of the weakness and shortcomings of his pre- decessors, and also because of. the gullibility of the electorate, particular- ly a mass of Eastern voters, the. West demands today, "by the vote of the people, and will continue iii uciimiYu, me removal of trade barriers that re-, strict'the growth and .progress of- the richest section of tho Dominion. The Iradia liberty contingent from the West to Ottawa should never for- get that they represent the vast maj- ority, not a minority, of the people. One would suppose, reading ml utterances of some protectionist politicians, that the "West had declar- er, tor shackles instead of freedom.
