IK muted that the paragraph in tho Speech from the Throne which In a general way promises cnciiuragmiient for Canadian farmers foreshadows a plan belng-ma- .lured by Ufl government to aid the provincial governments In tho en- couragement of scientific agriculture. In addition -to subsidies being given to the province for tin; encouragement of .agriculture money is to be provit! l for -tile Improvement of country highways as Indicated in another par- agraph of the Speech and as prom- ised by Premier Borden during the course of his campaign. It Is likely that, In ordur to pre- pare the way for granting of the subsidies, one, or perhaps 'two, com- missioners will be appointed, lo whom the representations of the provincial KovenimontB and ths farmers may made. It has not been flnnlly deter- mined as to whether' there will lie a separate commission to deal with the roads question, or whether one com- mission will deal with both. The government has already In its employ a good roail expert in tlie person ot A. W. Campbell, formerly commission- er of good roads in Ontario, and now deputy minister of railways. The name of Andrew Broiler is be- ing put forward by friends of the Dun- das member in with the agricultural end of tho commission. He Is said to be ii good EIIOSB for appointment. THE PEOPLES' FORUM CHANGED IDEAS ABOUT CANADA SOME LAUNDRY METHODS To ths Bdllor of the Herald i city of Lothbrltlga has just recently revelvod a scare over the threatened typhoid 'epidemic. Fortunately owing to the Individual pressure brought to hear upon the civic health officials the source was located and remedied It had assumed the nature of an epidemic. There Is, however, another menace which Is worthy of attention, and that is tho unsanitary methods em- ployed by local Chinese laundrymen.

Louis Kon, of the immigration department of the Grand Trunk Pacific at Winni- peg, is a Russian by oirth, and it is owing to an agricultural exhibit of Canadian products shown in Switzer- land, that he was induced to come to this country five years ago. .Mr. Kon Is now actively engaged in the immigration work his company, ami last year was in charge of the" Grand Trunk Pacific's Industrial ex- hibit at Brussels.

CALGARY METALS, Umited EDMONTON LETHBRIDGE MORE SOCIALISTIC VIEWS To.the Editor of the the caption of a "Mis- taken an editorial appeared In the Herald of last Friday, the write- up being in the nature of a so-called reply to my previous letter, in which 1 challenged the soundness of the Sin- gle Tax theory. I was ".spoken, about "running u- muck" with, my subject, and "that my logic was extremely poor." In an attempt, to decry my state- menfthat In the case of tenant far- mers, any'addiipnal form of land tax 'would he to the rent Jjy the landlord, the editor claims that "an unwritten.} law determines rents." Further on in the article, we are told that 'in the event of a land tax being placed by the Single Tax theor- ists on city property "the owner in this case has the option, of paying a higher tax or receiving a higher rent- al." This latter statement is a brilliant example of and one wonders why the "unwritten law" which regu- lates the rents in. Agricultural dis- tricts does not apply to city property. My object in writing on the Single Tax is to show the citizens of Leth- bridge there are two sides to the question Aid that if there is any de: feet In this quasi economic theory, it ought to be shown. Not many people in l.othbridge are conversant with the theory of Single Tax, and it seems re- markable that in so short a notice such a proposition changing the whole civic economic system should be sub- illtted for endorsatlon. The. Single Tax aims to provide all governing bodies, municipal, provin- ilal and federal, with all the revenue iccessary for administrative purpos- es from one source alone, the taxa- tion of land values, hence the term, Single Tax. To consider It, aa it might, affect. L-othbrldgo we are compelled to face some hard facts, and then consider whether the lime is ripe for its ad- oplion. i It Is patent to most of the ratepay- ers that In order to run tile city upon modern lines, here must be a source of revenue to meet me necusary ox- ponscs, of maintaining sidewalks, streets, parks, sewage, etc., etc. which apart from convenience Is a dead loss and from which no remuneration Is derived, as is the case with the mun- It Is a mistake to think that horses at light work be kept eniirely on hay. The same is true of colts. Mr. Honeman, feed your hone good oats. I have them. HAY, ORAIN A FEED Wholesale A Retail J. Haiinihan 349 Athletic Park Iclpal waterworks and electric power and light. This revenue must be in the various ways as at present, or from one. source only, land values. The argument of the Single Taxer against "unearned increment" sounds good and there is certainly room for their criticism of speculator's "who ;toil not'1 reaping financiaji benefits at the expensVpf 'the Industrious. It Is Claimed ttylt the Single Tax would change vacant property into revenue producing sources, It would help blot out the eye sores in the shape of ugly..and cneap erections: (shacks, standing side by side with handsome 'and well equipped stores, or blocks of misiness offices, it would compel the erection of hous- es on vacant prperty In the residen- tial parts, what is better give plenty of work to, artlzans. This is the obverse side of the Sin- gle Tax medal We snail look at the reverse side. The very fact.that Mr. Plutocrat needs pay taxes than Mr. Pleblan is very much to the advantage of the former; in other words, the stronger competitive busi- ness concern in the- same district has a decided advantage over a small' rival. In the case of vacant, property In business centres being, through the high taxes forced to develop, there are as a consequence more competi- tors brought into the fight for an al-' most limited market. The erection of more stores and business blocks, all the wel- fare of a city, should the business warrant it. But what about the com- pelling influence lot an Exorbitant lax i-liat makes it practically compul- sory to build and develop property when the economic conditions are un- favorable. There are numerous stores lying vacant right now in the city, becaus'e there is .not sufficient business tii'keep them open, and as for empty houses, comment is needless, and yet by the adoption of Single Tax these conditions would be multiplied until Lethbridge resembled a. wilderness of vacant stores, and empty You Mr. Business Man, do you want more competition? If so, demand Sin- gle Tax. And you, Mr. Uospectabl.e Citizen, who no pride yourself on your civic patriotism, and who call so loudly to Heaven when a villainous census, man decided to give Leth- bridge some souls, instead of, as was fondly hoped, 14 000, do you want to sec row after row of empty houses that were erected in spite of a lim- ited population? If so. demand Single Tax, nnd more shall ho given you. Lethbridgc is not a and the scurrilous' landlord tribe is not so pronounced as .to be a thorn In the economic flesh. Any attempt lo create an artificial atmosphere In the economic scheme of things, is certain to ho followed by reactive influences. If R temporary improvement In the labor market wss brought about, by the enforcement of the Single Tax, It would be certain to be followed by a period of stagnntlon, owing to the forcing of capital inlg non-product- ive channels. Capital follows the of least resistance, and the violation of this makers and young men'In a -hurry to the enforce'Its own. penalty.
