OUR: POINT OF- VIEW Jvisteii, to this: Aid. Asheroft snya city coiim-ll must kocp on spend' ins money else the city will go on the bum. Town Planning' 3 rp HE AIMS of the "new association, i J, known-as the Alberta Town. Planning and Housing, are', ex- commendable." It 'rg an "o: particularly needed iii-.the new-towns arc'springing up yearly. The following out olio.wi planning on the principles laid down will not oniy be conducive to present dav convenience, but will save much Jn the way .of expenditure in future years to meet the requirements which .added population necessitates. The experience alone which oM titles have gone through, in the mat- ier of expense in bringing themselves to modern requirements is. sufnV cient to sho'w that the movement is ii timely one. Independently ot towns io be pla-nned, the association will be of use to already established centres, in the way which is cummoiii io the west, are continually develop- '.-ing. Open spaces and forbad'thorough- lares are now recognized as necessi- ties in an age when 50 much stress .Is being placed cm hygienic conditions. Nor is the artistic side overlooked, and the city beautiful has become to be realized as counting in import- ance. This in itself has not only its aesthetic uses, but has likewise a pur- in attracting future residents, and influencing those already resid- ing to become permanent citizens. And there is not a doubt that attract- ive surroundings go a long way in cultivating and preserving the virtue of civic pride. A beautiful picture has its..beneficial .influence, and the same may be said of a beautiful town. But unless there is some recognized sys- tem to abide by, much of this may be marred. So far as our own city is concern- ed it may be said that it has been distinctly laid out with n provision for tlie future, but nothing is perfect, .and in the following out of the prin- ciples of the association in matters of expansion and development there will be a good deal to be sained. Property is valuable in our western cities and towns, a-nd In the mattei of building- there must needs be a temptation for making the most of space. This must inevitably tend to congestion and all its evils. There- fore, if the. association is able to se- cure legislation so that hygienic and artistic principles, will be bound to be followed.it will well merit its forma- tion. The tit tempt to attach stigma to the mayor over the sale of the isola- tion hospital is as small as ihe source from which thu effort omoimtes. Dr. Loverlng is proving unity a whirlwind on the stump. The doctor has a.breezy, sensible way of present- ing the fuels. Tho joke of the Unionist request that the Astiuhh government resign r.s the result of a trick division is seen iu the subsequent majorities of over one hundred. Here is an interesting dialogue: Dr. Levering addressing Aid. Asbcrofi: "Who is to blame for the Isolation hospital Aid. Ashcrot't: "Mayor Hutch." Ur. Loverlng: "What is, that you Aid. Asheroft; "Well, I believe the whole council is to blame." (Cheers.) A nai-y, manned by Can iidiaiis and .plac'-d-at the disposal oi tli is motherland Is'the true impeY'ii ami national policy. Norman E. Lambert, a prominent writer in the- Toronto Globs, .pays a tribute to tlie womanhood of ihe west -because they talk of emancipa- tion of act on the good than about ''votes for women" as ,301110 of their English sisters are too prone to' do. The west is practical, even the women. The session opened today and not- the least interesting' feature Of ifwill be the exposing of the political rot- tenness in the Alacdouald bye-election. .V party in power only a trifle over a year is not supposed to bo up against election scandals, but the old guard which brought" the party into disre- pute previous-to are'still potent 'actors in controlling the destinies of the Conservative forces in Canada. Tho mining institute dclib orations diil put forth any rea fomiblc solution1 whereby the winter coal bill might be reduced. Kir Wilfrid Laurier was seventy- ono years of age yesterday, but ho is ns young in spirit as the youngest member of house. A wage bill of ?.rmOO a from tbo six mint's surrounding the city stacks up fairly well ugainst some other much talked of industries. It will bo quite interesting-to learn how the federal premier-makes-out that the motherland is 'in need of emergency grants from the colonies. The western farmer is making so much money out of his grain that now it Js. proposed io place ,au em- bargo upon it to keep it from burst- tbe lake elevators. This may help a little in the- campaign for'wid- er markets. The proposal to erect in Canada a memorial to the lale General. William. Booth in the form of a training school for officers, is a worthy one. anil should receive the bearty support of all who esteem a good work. The Salvation Army, like all other insti- tutions, feels the need of .giving -the o'mcers a thorough and the establishment of a properly equipped institution of the kind would he a. more fitting memorial to the great General than a tribute in marble. Any one acquainted with the man in his work would appreciate that hib preference-would be for a' memoria' designed to increase the efficiency o! the work be bad so much'at heart.

Box 1979 Phone 1291 A TEST O.F., POPULARITY Congratulations, Not Sympathy THE FOLLOWING from the Fi- nancial Post, an authority matters financial in this c try, may serve to case ihe minds o[ those who see hlue rain in the recent sale of the Lethbrldge hoiid issue to -the Stinsoi] Co.: Large Municipal Bond Purchase Several firms find their muni- cipal business fairly good. There is 3, strong feeling that as soon 'as the present financial troubles, including: the tight money market, which have'Uepr 'bond buyers from maliing commitments, are removed, a much better muni- cipal -business will he in evi- dence, although the lower prices are expected to prevail. G. II. Stinsmi Co., have pur- chased of the per cent, bonds of the city of Leth- bridge for English clients. This is the largest municipal bond Is- sue purchase in many months j with the exception of the j OOU purchase of New Westmin- j ster bonds by this same firm. It may he that Leihbridge, by'hold- Jng out, would have been able to realize a better price, nut on the face of it, such a, thing had better be more" as a possibility than ,a probability. It is interesting to note also that none of the other Canadian cities, ex- .cent.Ncw Westminster, have been .able to issues because of the Toronto still' has its entire; issue of nearly ten mill- ions, although the mayor and one of the controllers' went io London in the.express purpose _of- disposing of them. It may be that'these other cities will be able to dispose of their debentures later at a higher figure, but when o-ne considers that in the coming spring another grist will be dumped on the market by Canadian municipalities, "this'chance does not look so rosy, and one is inclined to congratulate, rather than 'with Leth- bridge. Lower prices for Canadian muni- cipal bonds will prevail, and only by paying th0 higher rate of interest, say Jive or five and one-half per cent., will Canadian cities be able to realize tho same figure ns they have been ac- riiKthmed' to In the past. It is the old law of supply and demand at: and we may an well realize that (act. A Matter for Consideration CAN TH.KHK HE TOO MUCH ac- corded in the way of individual freedom? The question arises on rending an article in tho British Columbia Magazine, by UK editor, Dr. Vroomaa. this he comments strong. Iy on the policy of British bankers in loaning Jiipfin money to build war- :ships which may In the future be- come a menace to our Pacific shores, Under the traditions of freedom which are common to the Drilish Km- pire it is difficult Io restrain Individ- ual enterprise in any direction, so long as no existing law Is trans- .But at the same lime it must appear Incongruous to patriotic ideas that British capital should ho used to strengthen the fighting arm of a notion possibly, may some day become our enemy. Whether it is feasible or not thnt capital should ho circumscribed Is another Question, .and many, arguments tan 'be raised a to the fulHiablllty of giving it n froo hand, provided its scope is not bound fo bring about disastrous national re- sults. But all (he sfinio 'when wo con- the matter of loaning money 'for slrengtliftiifng tho fleet.of nnother jiaflon, it gives ground'Tor the cynic, to ask whether patriotism is after.fill a real ihtag." Is it a quality to be culled into being in times of national (lunger, or is it one which is he filways in the breast of every individual and io guide his every ac- tion? 1'or the honor of our race wo believe, and sincerely hope, that the latter IK the .case. In thc action it permits the British Umpire is actuated by thn assurance of its great power, and it is in this assurance that it scorns anything In tlie way of alarmist doctrines. It is this proud confidence which has made the nation what it is, but, at the same time, in nations, as well ns in in- tlivJdimls, ii does not do to bo too sure. Untie: the circumstances the comments.of Dr. Vrooman cannot out and thcs question raised is one which directly effects Cnmulji. Tho matter requires sorno consid- .oi'fttiqn, and. an, explanation is appar- entiy Finance we know )H a power In tho world, and the action commentnd on looks uncom- monly llko, setting' off present iiliist, future probabilities It. is well to bo assured that those proba- bilities arc. not likely to become real- istic. By Jean Blewett In Toronto Globe) This is a true story, awd has to do with the genial of the C. P. H. niblicity department, a train oilicial, and some common people. The exhibition was on at Saskatoon, and our train drew into a crowded station. Some confusion .ensued more people boarding: the than could possibly find accommodation. An hour or so later, when things had about settled down to normal, some of us began to take an interest in a heated argument going on between a portly, prosperous-looking jnan and a meek-faced little ctiap suit of1 grey. r It was all about .a reservation.
