MEMBERS of the city council who pledged the city to an expenditure of more limn was necessary lo curry the liability insurance account for (lie year shirting todny will iwve something lo explain to the electors should they appear on the platform socking re-flection next December. Without saying anything worse aboul il, Iheir nelion was unbusinesslike, and wlipu treating'the cily's business such nation is nol very com- mendable. Tho Herald has always slooci for the tender in awarding city i-onlnicts, IMS urged that policy lime and again, having more Iliiin once taken pasl councils to task for their laxity in this direc- tion. Having decided lo call for lenders in this cuse, especially af ler Hie company asking for a renewal of the insurance had pre- sented its argument, Ihe only cdurse one mighrreiisomibly expect Ihc council lo lake would be the acceptance of Ihe lowest tender; The question of AW. Skeith being connected with Hie con- cern submitting Ihe lowest tender should have carried no weight. Several months ago, when the council wiis re-allocating the fire insurance the firm of Wilson Skeilh.was grouted :i share of the cjly insurance, and every councillor present voted in favor without a murmur. Having thus established a precedent, il iiff pears Ihe essence of inconsistency lo' lake the stand taken by some of the aldermen on Saturday. But, even if Iheir ethical sense prevented Ihem from con- sidering Ihe Wilson Skeilh lender, there was slill the lenderof Asquilli A Lindscy lo be- considered. The acceptance of Ibis tender would have-saved of Ihe peoples' money in these limes when every dollar is needed. Inconsistency again. As for Ihe argument of the board or the lion-bourd company, that is a question not to be considered.1 The non-board company made the reduction and got the business last year. This year the board company made, the reduction in price and by the same token should have been awarded the contract. In treating the cily's business Ihc council has no righl (o assume the role of forecaster, and say that Ihey believe: Ihc board companies will raise their rales in !he future and that therefore Ihey should not gel the jjusincss.' What the citizens want is economic government. This wns oifn time they did nol gel it. It was a bad break. Control Your Coal Expenditure THE MACLEOD FRACAS.

'T'fiE LEADER of Ihc Opposition in Ihe provincial Icgislalure took occasion lo express his unwavering adherence to the axiom that those would Iheir parly best who served their country hcsf. This is an honorable sentiment, and one which we would likc'to think Mr. Michencr was sincere in uttering. fiul his atlilude with regard to the question of the natural resources for Ihc province rather weakened the force of what was admir- able. In referring lo the matter he contented himself with deal- ing in sophistries, and in making some kind of Apology for Mr. Borden in bis tardiness in giving effect lo promises made. Mr. Michcner look care lo mention (hat ho believed the fed- eral premier favors the provincial conlrol of resources, but Ihu Thousands of dollars will be saved to liie farmers of South- ern Alberta this year who will make use of Ihe Lelhbridge-'Wey- burn" branches of the C.

Here then be has the opportunity of carrying on I the golden rule he laid down. It is not sufficient to go hack lo pasl history, nor (o deal wi III sophistries in considering the matter. Ko far as the Liberal parly' in (he house at Edmonton is concerned il is united with Ihe oppo- sition in ils desire for this control. That may nol be con- sidered wisdom at one period is nol necessarily so as lime evolves. .Were it so there would be no such tiling ns progress. The history of politics shows that men have changed Ibeir viewpoint on many important questions. Afler all Ihc wise politician is he who suli- icribcs himself lo public opinion influenced by the real needs and circumstances of ibc lime.
