BeiiL THE WEEKLY HERALD Published every Wednesday In eight or more pages, and contains summary of the news of the week..local and district 1 year In advance.........51.60- 3 months In 6 months in advance........76t The Thirteenth Street Subway WITH THE OFFICIAL announce- ment of the C. P. R. declaring their intentions to erect mod- ;-ern freight accommodation and yards f here, the city council is once more r confronted with the necessity of plau- ;uing-a subway for loth street In 'this connection the city should move j carefully. The C. P. R. admit that the amount of traffic handled through the Lethbridge sheds is sufficient to the expenditure of over one hundred thousand dollars. The Hue, of traffic to and from the new sheds j will be over the 13th street crossing, not over the 9th street overheat bridge with its heavy grade. Under these circumstances it will be up to the C. P. R. to make pro. vision for easy access to the sheds. That means a subway. Jt will be just us much in the interests of the C. P. R. to have the viaduct built as it ccultl be in. the interests of the city of Lethbridge. Therefore, whfeu the proposition of constructing the new crossing between the north and south conies up for discussion in the city council, it is up to the administration to see to it that the C. P. R. carries ts fair snare of the expense. -A Alderman Aird's Objection LDERMAN AIRD stated at commission form of government, and to tarry out (bis it is essential North Lethbridge meeting that be did net believe in the com- mission form of government, as the city could not afford the payment of annually in-salaries. While agreeing with Mr. Ainl that what Lethlrridge needs is a retrenchment j policy, we cannot but think that the objection made to the proposed form of civic government is on a par with ;whut may be paraphrased as cent Trigs un-d dollar foolish. Efficiency tends to economy, and this fact should not be overlooked. What appears a large sum is really small in compari- son with what will be effected in sav- ing under careful and judicious man- agement. This applies in all import- ant concerns, and in no less to the 'business large city. We trust that Alderman Aird will reconsider the. stand he has taken. The city is in a measure pledged to that members of the new council should be entirely in sympathy with the' movement. Mr. Aird, during the time he has held a seat in the civic council, .has proved himself to be a useful member, and we are safe in saying has gained the estimation and the confidence of the ratepayers. It would he a pity to see him uiielected, but such necessarily must prove the case if the citizens act up to what is generally desired in the matter of seeing the commission form of gov- ernment through. However, the ald- erman has still .time 'for rellection, and after matter considera- tion from all sides will probably his view. Anyway, the rate- payers will be glad to hear what he iias to say in the matter at the next public meeting. If the objection given jy Mr. Aird against commission form of government is the only one he has t is not difficult matter to get over. The Dauntless Hero .MOVEMENT has been started i this and that individual whose name in this country for raising a fund for placing a monument cner or near 'the grave of General Wolfe at Greenwich, England. Al- ready there has been subscribed 500 by the citizens of Vancouver, "Win- nipeg, Toronto and other places iti Canada, An Ims ueeii mane by the press in different centres for support, as much for erecting a mem- orial in keeping with what the name uiKl achievements of Wolfe represent lo this Dominion, as for making it representative of our whole country. In this resnect Lethbridge has a duty to perform, and, accordingly, we bring thu matter before our readers, It a question of- the umount of the sums tendered, it, is more the sentiment which underlies the donation. Tho Interest taken will servo to exemplify that ive are not unmindful of what a gallant hero did in making thr history of our land ivhah it Is today. The military genius, and the valor oT General Wolfe, are so well-known that it is not necessary to on them. For us who value I lie free- dom under which we derived from those. British- -institutions on. "which we look with prido, we are indebted to tho man who lost his in a successful endeavor to ensure il'.G same lo us. Canada, can Tinmo is enshrined in her history, and in her p-rogress, but to no name can she point more proudly than to that of jthe man who captured Quebec. Over the grave of him whose heroism did so much in the making j of. our history there stands at the j present time only an unpretentious j L-uiumn, raised to his honor by the rank and file of the British army in Canada in 1849, It is meet and pro- per that there should be a dignified memorial to perpetuate for all tlmej the memory of a man whose deeds in the benefits they conferred can com- pare with the noblest acts of patriot.; j of. any land. This is a duty which is distinctly one which we Canadians should I'ullil. It' is one in which throughout the length and breadth of the Dominion every centre of import- ance should take its pi'rt. The gran- deur and significance of the memorial will; be marked not by the sum ex- pended on it, but by the large spirit of npnnumeity ,in this wide Dominion which helped, to, place it, there.

Remember that fact and I vojo for the candidates who know j how to beat conserve the city' ittter- ests. No other consideration should couut. Attempts to Blur Mayor Hatch by intinmtiug that he will refuse to call a meeting of the' ratepayers after nomination day is pretty small busi- ness.

If the people of North Loth bridge get a subway at Wth street in addi- tion to the C. P. R. freight sheds they will be very happy. One year ago were "grousing" because things they were not coming their way. they can hardly keep up with the times. The House of Commons has sat for five days and no one yet knows what the Bordc-n naval policy is. The sit- uation calling for an emergency grant will have passed before- Mr. Burden gets busy. If there is occasion for alarm he should get busy at once or cut it out. Tho "red light" district is not a di- issue in this campaign. The po- ice know that the tratlie 'is against the law and the police are tfworn to enforce the law. There is no need of mandate from the people. The traf- fic is no more countenanced -by law ban porch climbing in North Leth- brfdge, or highwaymen in South Leth- The police know that and should act without instructions. Spec- al districts for violation of law are iot countenanced by law.

The Herald doc? not often -use it's editorial columns to recommend aeon, cert, but would like to urge citizens bo as generous as possible in sup- porting the Hre lighters' concert to- night. It is a worthy object and the men deserve the best the city can afford. Complaint is made to the Herald that exorbitant charges tire being made by cub and tuxl drivers. The Herald does not know how much there Is back of the charge but would point out that there is n city bylaw regulat- ing these charges and no one need pay, more than.the bylaw sanctions. Now if the C. P. R. "'ill only keep up the good work in the Lethbridge district, they may help to remove the impression which lias caused so many haixl thiiigs to be said about .them. Their latest announcement is a source of satisfaction to the public, although probably after all it has not been the criticism, even of a section.' of the press, that has caused them to plan j extensions to their freight accommo- dation here. The fact that they own 0300 acres of land within a three mile radius of the city may have had some- thing to do with their local plans. THE OWNERS OF ORN Suite 111 to 115 Sherlock Building P.O.

The Rule of Luck (Winnipeg Tribune) Ordinarily, the road to success a hard one to toil. Progress is usual- ly slow, measured in years.
