Wo appre- ciate these uetions and now, since buainess so amply warrants the Im- provement, we ask for an improved passenger service. By granting our request, we feel certain, the C. P.

Let th'em transact it and assume the responsi- hiht-v That's what they are there for. Imagine a city council.-under the old form of government, calling la citizens to docille on a contract. The council dill the job off its own bat, so to speak; and faced.the electorate like men. So far the commission form of gov- ernment bas operated well, and on the 'whole the commissioners have served the city satisfactorily. But the city commenced to move and business has not yet felt to any .considerable extent the stimulation that is bound to ac- company the marketing of the grain- In addition to commercial men, we are bound to have a considerable num- ber of landseekers in oar midst for charter does not provide that Use commissioners are to be exempt from 'criticism or that they are to pass overjv :their responsibilities to half a dozen 'citizens. THE COMING CHANGE ,IN TIME TABLE The time is drawing near when the G P R. will put into effect the fall time table. Southern Alberta patrons are eager for a change that wiil pro- vide a through daylight service on.the Crow's Nest line between Medicine Hat and Cranbrook. The passenger ,traf5c demands a better service. The night trains are crowded, and th< locals are carrying three times ai many passengers as eighteen months ago. It is almost safe to say that there is-today as large a business available as there was when a daylight service was in existence a few years ago. As has been pointed out severa times before, the district west of Mac leod, which is legitimate Lethbridge business territory, is practically cu Off from a convenient connection this city, or for that matter any othe Alberta centre. Travellers-there have to use night trains and to visit Leth bridge it is necussary ,Iur a Uavell to take a train in the night, and to return west also by a train in th night This is not only unfair to Leth bridge but to the points west. A day- light service would remove the griev and, we are sure, bring addl tiohal revenue P. R railroad cannot estimate the possible business available by depending upon the information about the traffic .on the line vrest of Macleod at present people (ip..not travel now be cause inconvenient com ei-lent .servile "teral'd itaabia the public on would certainly create new business, necessity for a great improve rapnt in, the passenger-service on the ForemosV line is algo becbmiug in- creasingly evident day by day. Tho country jtributnry to that iine has been remarkable and the traffic has become exceedingly heavy. The present passenger per vice is entirely inadequate and incon the nest. year. Alberta is oeiag ad- vertised far and wide as a big crop country and many investors and pos- ii'ole settlers are going to look in upon the coming months. Leih- ri'dgs should be at its best. We hould impress them with our. modern j mprovements as a city. If we fail to provide men with a pWe to rest their weary, will destroy the effect of .all our other advantages. 'A man who has been unable to get a bed sleep upon is not likely to be in the best of humor to appreciate our ciSy in the daylight hours. Some 'plan should he evolved right away to meet Ihe needs of the travelling public. "W. P. of the .Toronto World, is forming a new party. Up to the present he has one recruit, W. F. Maclean, M.
