Hurry' the Charter ilie city counHl, hurry the first, draft of the proposed city charter. There is reason, to- hurry, the main one being that that charter must go into effect this to do-so n must be presented at the next cession of rhe Alberta legislaiure. j There are enough good reasons why.! the new charter should be "put into j i lorce as soou as possible. The police department should not j jTbe Jen longer tliau absolutely neces-j Xsary under the jurisdiction of the; council. With the new chief, let; r'tfhere be no interference from indivni-j tial aldermen. This seems impossible Tvuhout either a police commission, or else a comniieaioaer of public safety! wfco will be responsible to the people j .for the efficiency of the police force. The secretary-treasnrer's office should be divided. The work is be- coming 100 heavy for one man. Make -two responsible, and that they :db it right. This change can be made 'only by passing n neu- charter. The present system of committees the council is nil wroiig. No one JS..responsible -apparently. Get a 1 t-oinmissiotrer and then the people will know who is responsible. the charter passed as soon as possible hi order that these changes may be brought about. Even the wiH- admit thai, is room for ituprovenieut in the present system of aldernianic super- vision of -vrork.' It seems absolutely necessary that. ths charter should be put into force thin winter. -If that is to be done the sooner the ratepayers are given a draft of the new hill the better. There is to be a change for the better. Let it be made "with the assent of ali eiy- zens and with the best suggestions of all em-bodied If practicable. Selecting the New Chief of "Police TONIGHT the license and-police coinmiuee will 'tackle the task of engaging a new chief of po- lice. The Herald's advice to them is f to pick out the best man it is possible to get. for the tnan in whom can place implicit faith that the trust reposed in him will always be first foremost in his mind. Let them also pick a man with experience !3in police duties in cities. Policing a city is different from police in any other part of the world. And when they have chosen a man hsad of th-tf deyaruiient, let him he given a free hand.

MART SMITE, AMUUM Might Apply to Western Canada (Chicago Tribune) Eighteen years ago a writer now ou the Tribune, then a special writer for an Onialia paper, was gent into west- ern Nebraska ou a melancholy errand. There was famine in the laud, and wherever he in (.he bitter cold of that winier farm- houses stared at him like hollow-eyed ghosis of hopes abandoned. Barns and Icffs 'were empty and the remains of farm machinery stood forlorn in the wind swept fields. in one farmyard a lone, disconsolate gray wolf slunk shivering away. The other day the Chicago, Burling- ton and Qisincy railroad, reporting on some of the conditions of Nebraska nf 1911'. noted thfc fact that t.hero ;rru automobile ijgfed as owned in the average of one to overy forty-eight inhabitants. In some dis-} Iricts every farm is with one. There are no: many more dramatic contrasts In our history ;.han which are offered by a comparison cf the fanning west during the Kj-n years and the full fod prosperity cf today.
