Will it provide for an early election ot the three city conimissloncr.s taking tlicir scats, or will it be a year belorc the commission form ot government goes into effect, leaving the council to be elected in December in charge during 1913 ? That is a, phase of the commission government iliscussion which will have to be settled while tlio council has the matter under consideration during the next two or three weeks. 'It is a matter of more than a little public importance as the decision will have a direct bearing on the municipal elections n December. It the chatter is prepared with a clause making it possible to elect the com- missioners immediately it becomes . law, it will mean that the council elected in December will have to resign after sitting only for a tew monllis, following an election in which the commissioners wilt be elected. Seen by the Herald this morning City Solicitor Hall stated that cither course was open, and ho would leave it to the cotincil to decide whqn the general discussion of the charter undertaken next week. SEHLERS ARE POURING IN "Immi(!;ration to Canada this year is heavier t^han ever before," said .Joseph Poison, of the Immigration department, to the Herald this morning;, "and the increase in the number ot American settlers is the feature ot the year's work. The first nine months eclipses the records of other years. The surprising feature is that we arc getting so many settlers from the western States.' Washington in particular is sending large numbers, the movement through Spokane being surprising." Mr. I'olson is in the city in connection with the Dry-Farming Congress. The olhcials ot the department are taking a great interest in the movement, and consider it line publicity for Western Canada. Hundreds of Am-" cricans will visit the congrcsn, rid they cannot help but return to their homes with a good impression of the Canadian west. J. Bruce Walker, commissioner ot iinnrigration at Winnipeg, will he one of the visitors in the city during congress week. He is now on a tour ot the West. Speaking of agricultural conditions in the West generally Mr. Poison said that the West had had one of its best years and would be able to start the new year in a very prosperous condition. Threshing is well advanced in Manitoba, but rather backward in Saskatchewan and in Northern Alberta. A lot'of Pirain is moving out ot Southern AUjerta and, the railways are already taxed to mcrt th� demands of the grain shippers. However, he said that he had not heard much comrplaint ot car shortage, especially in Manitoba, where grain is moving freely.

MILLS AT LETHBRIDGE, RAYMOND ^ND MAGRATH The spirit ot competition was evidenced tor the flret time today in the voting contest for the Queen of the In ternational Dry-Farming Congress, when MlsB Audrey Neale jumped Into the lead sevoral votes. The voting has scarcely begun and when the votes count into the thousands It is expect ed there will be something Interesting In the contest. In at least four important functions the reigning Queen will evoke her royal prerogatives in connection with the Congress and without doubt the part that the young lady and her maids ot honor will play will be long remembered by the honored guests ot the week. The Coronation The Queen will reign at the Terpst fete next week Thursday night and will then bo formally recognized and receive her crown at'the hands ot His Worship Mayor Hatch , who, oddly enough is the father of one ot the pop ular contestants tor honors. The court of honor will preside over the Terpsltete for the evening. The Woman's Board of the Congress will give a theatre party at the open ing performance of Billee Taylor at the Majestic Theatre at which the Queen of the Congress and her maids of honor will be guests of honor and on Tuesday night these young ladles will share the honors and responslbll Ities in the great International recep tion at which the representatives of several nations will be introduced to the people ot Lethbridgo. Later in the evening the Queen will preside over the presentation of the world's sweepstakes prizes that have been won at the International Exposition. The Herald is requested to call attention to the fact that every ticket of admission to the Terpsfete carries a coupon upon which are printed the names ot the three candidates with blanks for the vote to be cast. This coupon when propeny marked with a cross opposite the name ot the desired caaididate much like the Australian ofllclal ballot must be dropped Into the ballot box at Jackson's drug store. The Returning Officers Messrs. Armstrong and Jackson, the ofUcial judges make the count at noon and at nine each evening until the contest closes on the night of the 16th The committee in chaa-go desire thftt all children between the ages of 12 and 18 who will assist in the canvass tor the sale of tickets tor the Terpsl fete should call at the offices of the Dry-Farming Congress in the Royal Bank building for ticket supplies. The first prize tor the largest num ber ot tickets sold will bo ten dollars In gold, the second and third prize will bo five dollars in gold and the ftrst fifteen having the largest num ber ot sales will be entertained by a theatre iiarty at the BiUee Taylor performance early In the week. Already 35 tickets sellers are at work and the committee desires that at least twice that number shall compete. The rioaird of Control appeals to all parents having children ot the desired ago and who are willing to assist the committee in insuring the buccobs of the entertainment to allow the children to report for duty at the Congress hoadnuarters after school Thursday and Friday and as e.arly as convenient after nine o'clock Saturday morning. The wisest sovereigns err like private men, And royal hand has sometimes laid the sword Of chivalry upon a worthless shouldwr, Which better had been branded by the hangman. What then?
