MAYOR HAROIE REPLIES 101, DUil (CoN'Ji.N-UKD yitoM FnoN'T Paob) tho commissioners thq, coat was cut down to a point that councllmaniu government could not possibly roach, bo-cause of tho fact that undor that form of government they must havo competent advice or run all kinds of risks, without responsibility, that would land tho city In n deplorable mess. To o.xomplify; The mayor's ollloe, with more work in It during the last two years than ever In the history of the city. Is run at ft few hundred dollars loss than under the old form of government. This has been shown by llgures so clearly and so many times that It Is not worth while to repeat them here again. The same thing applies to each of tho other commlsslonera. Take tho electric department. The city paid Mr. Reld within $500 as much per year tor superintendent as he got as commlsslou-or, and his office dispensed with several assistants that seemingly wore necessary under the old form of government. I do not think It is ucces-sarj to go on further In this respect as I am fully convinced that If any capable person will go Into all the details, that he cannot but be con-vlufed that what I have said Is correct. The Honor of Office Is Part Payment I do not wish to say just exactly what I feel In reply to this phase of your communication, but 1 must say a little. Where honor Is substituted for payment, equivalent results are returned. The man or city who expects to get something for nothing Is fooling himself or Itself. Honors in time become a burden instead of representing remuneration. Such is my own experience and that of many others, hence one cause of the lack of conU-nulty In office. Any man who would expect to receive the output that I have put Into the mayor's duties In the city of Lethbrldge for less than tho city has paid me. Is a very poor judge of earning capacity. Further, no man under any circumstances would put the effort Into the work that I have for honor and a small salary. It Is not In human nature. The trouble is, Mr. Dunham, that you and many of our citizens do not understand what honest eftort has meant in the mayor's office for the past three years. You can get mayors no doubt for honor and less salary, but they cannot and will not put the work into the office It retiuires. As I said before It is not in the nature of things. If tho work and effort is not put into the office then you will go to the bad, and the great evil of going to the bad in this way is that the poor results are not perceivable until it Is too late and the damage is done. There is no private corporation that w^ould stand up for a single year if managed as Mr. Dunham would suggest, and why should cities be less efficiently managed, than privain cor-poratlon.s? Let me just return a minute to the heading of "The honor of office Is part payment." If there Is any logic In that phrase, why does it not apply to cabinet office In both federal and provincial executives? Further, knowing the amount of effort put into the mayor's duties for the last two years, and tie results that have accrued to tho city, I venture to say to you, Mr. Dunham, If the city had paid $10,000 a year it liad gotten good returns and had not made a bad bargain, so that perhaps after all part of the mayor's salary is paid by the honor of the office, but as I said before I stake but little stock in that phrase, "The honor of the office Is part payment." $5000 per Year Saving In Commissioners' Salaries Compared With a 570,000 to $100,000 Coot per Year Compared with any well managed private corporation which I claim we have been rapidly approaching In the past two years, J make tho following statement deliberately: I have managed private corporations, large and small, for over thirty years, have been mayor one year under aldermanic government and have been mayor and commisslnnor of finance, etc., for two years under commission government; with this experience and records of facts regarding both private corporations and this city in my possession, and consideri2ig all the relations of the city government for several years, I unhesitatingly say that under alder- Grand Prize, Panama-l^acific Exposition/San Francisco, 1915 Grand Prize, Panama-Cdliiforiiia Exposition, San Diego, 1915 DRINK BAKER^S COCOA For its Delicious Flavor, its Excellent Quality and its High Food Value.

S. hoped that if I have made any slips or said anything that, by any stretch of imagination, can bo construed to be unfair, I wish you to feel that It was not Intended. My object Is to offer a fair defence. As you know I can only bring up tho best In me on a "fighting basis," and I feol that if I had gone after you ham-nior and tongs I could have made a better representation, but 1 have eliminated that In a desire to be fair.
