IJW da- - SALARY INCREASES The most serious objection the citizens have to tlic recent salary iiicreasos is tliat tiio advances , made liiwo l)em extremely largo. lu thi*oe cases the total increase amounts to $2100 a year. It is true the work in all departments of ciyic government has increased greatly but we cannot see that the extra work warrants the large advan ces made. It would have boon bettor to have increased ibc oflicials' salnr-Jos by a couple of hxnidrcd dollars instead of by seven hiindrcd dollars at a time,, It wight have been well also to ascertain the salaries i)aid to officials in cities of the size of I.eth-bridge. Wo are told, though wo have not oflidal information on the point, that the salaries hero are consider-' ably in excess of other places sonic of those I)!qcos being considerably larger. The Herald is not playing, any favorites in this salary business Imt it has always thought it strange that a mar like Harry Fleetwood, so loivg in the city's service and whose work has doubled in the Inst year, should have had his application for an increase turned down while other ofli cials who but a year or so ago were willing to take their jiositions at a certain salary ai-e given big increases. The council would have acted wisely if it had adopted a scale of salaries, n maximum to be reached in a certain nuaihcr of years. As it is now the Claries have been put up ti the highest notch in one slap. 'wore bara in collars and'obscuro corners of hotels, Then ho proceeded to criticize Iho I.lccnso Inspector for not getting rid ot those places. The Inspector deserves to bo criticiml if he knows that these bars exist ond docs not get rid of them, But, if ho didn't know of thein, it was Mr. Ivor by's duty, If ho Knew of them, to inform the inspector, before starting V)Ut to criticize the olTlclnl. Temperance people are anxious from the public platform to have the law on-forced but thoy are carolosf/ about helping in \iit enforcement by giving assistance to the ofTicials. The Olobc imbUshes a rumor that Hon. W. .7, Ilnnna may go to Ottawa. There is no abler man vn On nada than Hon. W. .1. llannn.-1 et erboro Review. If Jlr.

In a letter to the electors of V'icforia, U. C, he says, "Where my work will lie in the future, whether in the t'ommons, or the Cabinet, or el.sewhoro, is something upon which [ cannot at pre.sent .speak." A rumor has been lloating around that the .Vlberta I'rovincial elections would be held next month.
