THE WIEKLY HERALD .-_ eiery In or ir.oro pssw, eontilu cf thi cr local anj 1 Tiir In 51.00 6 coatbs In I some of the big minded statesmen, bul it would be n step leading to a rich harvest of fares for the civic street railway. The winter is approaching and with it the question of wilier spurts must be considered. There is no rink in Lvlhbridge and il looks like good business for HID city to step in and take action which would result in the winter sports being played at theparli. [The trouble in keeping a sufficient stretch of ice in shape would j be a minor consideration compared with the accruing benefits, and doubtless some arrangement could he intulc with Mr. Gilles- to take care of .the ice and lo see that any regulations decided I on were respected. Last 'winter the street ran from 13th Street to tho grounds practically empty. There is no I reason why such should be the case this coming season. Don't leave il lo some one club to lake the initiative. Let the lake the lead. Provide generously for hockey clubs, pleasure skating i and other amusements and there will he little trouble experienced Jin turning the young !ife of the city Henderson-Lakc-wards for j winter pleasure. It is in such ways that traOic is created for street railways in other cities. Why should Ihe Lethbridge city council assume an air of indifference? The city needs every five cent fare it is possible to collect in order to make the slrcet rail- way pay. Why not help out by adopting a policy which would not only cater to pleasure-loving desires of the youth, but at the same time create a traflic for the street col's which would help out immensely in the winter season. There is wisdom in econ- omy bul there is greater foolishness in refusing to spend oiie dollar in order lo make five. Tuesday, Seplember Canon McMiltcn is to be commended for bringing before the public the report that an attempt is to bp made In put into ollice next year a "wide open" element. It will assist in iHilthuj (he belter element on the ulcrl. The London Advertiser says Sam Hughes would sa-vu the country bettor if he were to build in the west a combined elevator and drill hall. Sam will likely object to Ibis snggosliuu for fear the barley and rye stored in the armories would revive the can- teen. Newspaper men testifyiHi; at the (rial of Jess Vullard who killed John (Hull) Young at Los Angeles in a boxing match, de- clared that a falal bout is not a prize light., Neither il is. Just murder, that's all. Those members oHhq fourth estate are men of discernment, OTJH POINT OF VIEW IT MORE WAYS THAN ONE I KTHBR1DQE is getting its very best publicity from its muni- cipally owned utilities. If is getting that publicity, too, right where it is hard to get any good publicity about the IJniled States. And the reason Lethbridge receives tin's free publicity is because Ihere is such a strong feeling in favor of public ownership in the United Slates, where everyUu'ng is privately' owned, that anything about municipal ownership is eagerly read by and is therefore good newspaper copy. '-x i The following from Hie Milwaukee Leader is good seed p'lanted on fertile ground: "Lethbridge, Alberta, a city of about people, has a street railway system owned by the people. The first cars were run on August 15, 1912, and the line paid from the first day, with six and eight tickets for 25 cents. The city owns its water'system, and that pays. The people do nol have lo hire attorneys to put up jobs on them. "Now, note the difference between private and pub- lic ownership. The natural gas supply of Lethbridge is owned by a privaie corporation, and the price, of gas for domestic use is 35 cents per 1000 cubic feet, and for industrial use it is 15 cents per 1000 cubic, feet. But Medicine Hal owns its natural gas supply, aud the price for domestic use is'15 cents per 1000 cubic feet and 5 cents per 1000 cubic feel for industrial use. 'The publicly, owned electric light and power plant of Lslhbridge gels its coal from a coal mine owned by the city, and here is what the Lctlibridge board of trade says of the electric, light and power plant: r 'There is no watered capital slock demanding high rafes for interest, the result being a steady lowering of as the consumption of electricity increases. The lighting ars already down lo S cents per kilowatt hour, and .the power with a 10 per cent, discount for prompt payment." "Those are the rates in a city of people, and from a coil-burning plant." There may be some discrepancy in the figures, but the gen trend is right. The above was written from San Francisco to the Milwaukee Leader, showing how widespread is Lelh bridge's fame as a municipal ownership city. San Francisco i just now pulling up a fight for municipally owned street cars Ltthbridge is being held up'as an example. Watch Lethbridge grow. Did you ever know the south lo have such.perfect harvest eather? School site settled; trustees evidently saw the site eye lo eye t last. It's quite Irue that cantaloupes are grown in Lelhbridge dis- rict without wire stems. Lethbridge has the imputation of being n clean and beautiful ily. Let us resolve to keep it so. Postmaster General Samuel refuses lo be intemewcd. If e can stand il the newspapers can. Our friend Straw Hat is likely lo prolong his sojourn in our lidst if this fine summer weather continues. A British M. P. says Borden will build a Canadian navy yet. 'nnny thing that we have to gel our news about it from strang- rs. Col.

Almost invariably the farmer who summer, fallowed lias letter crop than he ever had before. That means that summei allowing will be generally followed in the future. It is most important that Chief Davis' successor should he a strong man who will follow the Chief's course in enforcing, the "aw. Pity we couldn't keep our present chief with us.

Bui if the shooters could only gel those "that go away in the gross" the average would have a change of face. How would il be to conduct a "Gel Acquainted Trip'' tc Cranbrook during the fair there. There is no heller town in tb counlrj and Lethbridge should cultivate its good friendship. CITY PARKS IN WINTER IT MAY BE a rather far call lo winter but il is nol loo early I start thinking febouljiie policy lo be adopted in order lo pop .tilarize Henderson Lake during the skating season. Early in III spring the Herald advocated a generous policy on the ground that every dollarspe.nl in making the park attractive woul result in flye dollars being spenl in sired car fares. The city dii .not do much owing to the financial stringency, and if the pur! rias proven a popular resort, much lo the benefit of street railwa receipts, il has largely been due to privaie enterprise, e.specinll that of.Mr. Joseph Gillespie. As has been pointed out the slree car sj-slem in, all ciWs, large or small, are given to the establish ment of popular resorls.with a view to creating traffic, and a Lethbridge K a city of comparatively short distances il is all the more imperau'ye that something should be done lo create busi- ness for th'e slrcet cars. Private enterprise, did considerable at the Iske'duririg the. summer (o make it attractive, and if the city council had, seconded the efforts made the results would have been much more gratifying. The city has teams doing very little .and it cost a mere Iriflo lo have hauled sand and gravel and made a pleasant bathing beach for children. Such a policy, as it would have been, would have, allracfed children by the hundred lo the park and i I would have been more popular as a family resort. )t is not too iale to relrinvc part of the lost ground and the council should Ihis fall, when there is little other.work to do, prepare for next season by having the While the combine is busy knocking the farmer's elevators the carpenters are busy with the construction of the latter. Yoi can't kill co-opcralion in grain handling amongst the farmers. A negro in Alobnina was arrested the olhcr day sleeping beside a chicken coop. That's what a despnlcli says. It's han to believe, but Ihe only explanation is Ihal he was laying for hens A new variety of wheat discovered on one of Canada's ex perimenlal farms won the big prize at Minneapolis slate fair Wheat and Canada are coming to be recognized as synonymou Twenty-one million bushels of grain were grown in Southern Alhnrln in 1912.
