In the recent controversy attention been drawn to the system of go- vernment ia Germany, and if one tluog more than .another was made Jt was the fact that the chancellor in the country is not res- ponsible to 'Parliament but to the "Emperor, just as the United States Cabinet is wholly responsible to the President. The ChanceHor's subordin iites, the Vice Chancellor and the nine secretaries of state arc subject_to the 'Chancellor's orders. The position of the Chancellor vof the German Empire is in truth ill un- derstood not only by foreigners but also by some Germans. He.can speak in the Reichstag, but he is not. a that body and cannot there. In the Reichstag he nominally appears Commissioner 'for the Bundesrath or Federal Council, or "as one of its Prussian members. Over the' Bundesrath, on the other hand "he presides as its leading and mov- ing spirit. The functions of the Bun- -desrath, again, are also often miscon ceix-ed.

PROBLEMS FOR NEW COUNCIL j During this year the City Council j problems, but it would be foolish lor j aspirants for next year's council to' imagine that day of the big prob-1 loms is passed. i In these days of growth we have to j lay the foundations for the future and I the future of this city is no small j affair. Lethbridge is bound to be' a large city and it must be develop-; wi along broad lines. 1 At the present time a bigj tradn with the rapidly settling farm- ing district to the north and west of- trade in a very few years to some j enterprising town that will spring up on the other side of the river, rfhlessi we endeavor to solve a very serious problem, the improvement of the en-'; trance to this city. The haul from the Qthcr side of the river to this side is r. mighty heavy and hazard- ous one and would not be undertaken by any fanner if it were not for the fact that Lethbridge affords the best market. Tn a few years it is not un- likely these new towns will bid hard for this trade. The idea of a high level bridge socms to be out of the question. It is too heavy a task to consider, nt the present, at any rate. Up to tho present two suggestions have boon of- fered 4is a moans to remove the ob- stacle. One is to build incline rajl- or, both sides of thr river.
