MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP A SUCCESS The twin cttiosot I'ort Arthur jvntl Fort WlUinm and the city of Ouolph arc in tho lYont rank of the municipal ownership cities of Ontario. Tho dobentureB of the city of Guelph com mnnd the highest price of the debentures of the smaller cities of Ontario, while that some city this year surprised the province by reducing its tax rate to 11 mills, when 19 to 21 mills is the prevailing rate in tho smaller cities. Tho enviable financial npilioii of Guelph is due almost entirely to its ownership of its public utilities. Its waterworks and .sewerage systems have always been municipally controlled. In 1888-9 it spent jaoO.OOO in building the Guelph .Tunction rail-, way, a line 15 miles long to connect .with the Cnnadion Pnciftc. This lino was in 190G extended by the C.r.K. to Goderich on Lal pcr-ient. dividend; in 1907-8, owing to unusually .severe climatic and husini'ss and municipal iinprovenifnt coinlilidus jjc-jond the contiol ui tlie bciard, the net gain on the yeur'.s oijerntions was reduced to $ri,Ot54, as the din-rtors determined to maintain the efiiciency of the road iind the service even if the dividend suffered: 3 ])er cent, was paid this year. 'I'lie success of the street railway is due to the energy and business ability of the I'resident and two other non-Cour.cil members who have been on the board since its oppointment in 1904. The water .system was put on by an elective coniniissiim about 188.'), but tho council quarrelled with the commiKsi(jners ami they resigned, ihe luamigeinent reverting jjiick to the coimcil which held it for twenty years Owing to the indilTerent results obtained by the council's committees as compared with those obtained by commissions in other places there arose a public deinai>d that tho water system be put under a. commission. This was done, and tho people who *ould not have stood for a moment for a contemplated scheme of th6 1900 council for n $35,000 filtration system, readily grantctl tho water coihinlbsloncrs a few months after $125,000 for a well conceived and well matured plan of bringing a sup-i>ly ot water from springs nt a distance, along with other Improvc-monts. Tho net revenue has risen from $10,000 to $17,000 since the Commissioners took hold. The Guelph people arc so well pleas Qd with the success of their municipal boards that the TMorcury has voiced a demand that tho Beads anct Streets bo placed under a commission for the carrying otit of permanent improvements. Tho sowers are under the control of council, but, tor want of the foresight and continuity of plan and progress that a commission gives tho original plans for aoworaginiML�!>jiiBi>w NEW California Seeded Raisins The Bentley Co.
