It was quite right to blame him .for any lack of speed in getting his work done, and-to blame, him for any mis- takes there may have been in the as-1 city's sessment was quite within" their rights. These things were bad enough, but, the biggest kick came the fact that the tax-notices were made-out without having a piace on them for the description of sion of-an opinion as to whether or not they want to go in the same old the property assessed.

Third Bal- I t Phone 261 Box 642 Auctioneer Herald Want Ads Brings Great Results There are two great big questions that will have to be settled by the people of this burg at the time of the municipal elections or before that time. One of these is the matter of city government. This -old-fashioned way of. the old style city council as we have it now is alright for a vil- lage 'where there is' not a great deal to do, but when any ordinary 'dub of a fellow can attend to in a kind of a way, is not the system for a the big problems, to work out and the big works to administer that this city has. A city, like any other institutiony has to be run'on a business basis. If there is anything a business man hates and. abhors it is to.have any waste of money or labor. It is a loss, of course, but he hates the idea of allowing such a thing to happen. I am not in a po- sition to gix'e figures and facts, but I am firmly of the opinion that the city could pay big money to officials, commissioners or board of control or some such and then save their Salary times over. This waste is not the) fault of Dad .and his aldermen, as they are not in a position to look after things so as to prevent it. I hope some great big guy will not come along and tell me to trot out the figures to prove what I say. I haven't got them, and haven't got the. ability to get them. There may not be any, but it is the general opinion of business men with whom have been talking that there is more or less waste that might be WADDINGTON 31'avoided in practically every depart- ment of the municipal work. I have a hunch that a commission in full charge of the administration of the city's affairs would reduce this to a minimum.

But'outside of that affair altogethr er, it is about time Dad's council got some way of stopping these scraps at the city offices. The offic- ials cannot serve the city properly if they are scrapping among them- selves" all'; the time. They may think they are giving the citizens the worth of their money by providing amuse- ment in this way, for it must be ad- mitted that there is nothing the peo- ple enjoy more than a good mix-up among public officials. is lots of fun, of the same sort as a dog fight only a little more refined' and less gory.

Editor Lethbridge Herald Sir is about time that the au- thorities were again stirred up with a view of getting proper postal facil- ities here. The city is undoubtedly large en- ough to warrant a house to house delivery, and the houses are all duly -numbered, so that no difficulty would anse as to locating addresses. The fact that we have the present unsatisfactory arrangement proves the truth of the adage, "What is everybody's business is nobody's business." But perhaps the people who are paying this year in the aggregate the sum for post office box rents in the city might get" interested if they would realize that what they pay for the privilege of carrying their own mail, would pay the whole of the cost of a daily house, to house delivery within the city limits. Yours trulv.
