To His Worship the Mayor: Dear Mr. Mayor,-l wlsli to tliaiik you tor your fair and able reply to my fiuggestious on tho .question ,of what should be Included In the referendum, It submitted. It wos not iny intention to etUer Into any newn-pai)or controversy, or to be tmdar-stood iu any way to ha antagonistic to youraolf or tho cHy govornmoiit, so in acUnowelilging your letter. 1 will endeavor to be brief, courteous and It possible to the putiit, , 1 think the public will agree with you in most all that you say. To HUminarlise, the people will agree with you upon the foUowiuiS ideas: 1. That my suggestioiis appeared more or less luiproiijptu. and coiiso-quontly subject to the oi'itiuiem of being superficial, 2, That the cQ'mmJpalon tovm'^'C governraent is unqueBtlohably the best form ot goveniment, au'a.r^Uat tho ex-perleuoe ot Lethbridge'; lW3 in*pveu this statement. . , 3, That we have had a very able commission, and that the eomralBslbn-era have worked very faithfully, and this la particularly true of tho mayor, 4. That It is desirable to have more or less continuity of office in order to obtain the best results. The disappointing tenturo ot yotir letter, able and courteoua though it is, is the fact that it contains little, if any thoughts or facts that might be Butd to be new to tho I^ethbridge public. Take your compariaou of the private and public corporations, IhlS la an old story, .so the, rearrangoihent ot llio executive slaft with a view to economy and efticlBncy is n story with which we huvo all been Icopt familiar. If I so desired, I might say aome things about your comments upon the "honor of public gorvioe" that would meet with popular approval, and might tend to liumlllttte you, hu(. I assure you, your worship, that 1 have no desire to do so. But iu regard to the intimation, that suggestions ot a public Interest, such as I made, mIgUt be .considered by the comraissioners as penalizing them, l sh&U have to maUe a courteous, hut I hope, fair reply. - (CoN'i'lNTJ.KU ON PiGE ii) $200,000 FIRE New York, April 3.-Two hundred thousand dollars damage was done in two (Ive-atorey buildings qn Bookman street, occupied by papdr concerns this afternoon.

Tlio resolutions were then liassed through the house, and committee, and the bill based on them introduced and, given first reading. Mr. Twoodie asked that tho second reading stand, and this was agreed to. 'I'lie opposition last week gave notice that only one reading a day ot tho supply bill would bo allowed, the motive, it is said arising from tho fear that-tho government, having got supply, might spring prorogation. As Mr. Sifton stated tho other day, that the order paper would be cleared before prorpgatlpn, the fear is grouiidlesa. ^^he aupplementnry votes wore passed with little or no criticism ps did the votes for the fiyst three months of 1917, which were one-quarter ot a year's' vote, and one to merely make any expenditures legal until the house meets again, when this vote becomes merged In the new estimates, Tjiere was ito display o� fireworks over, the utility Qommiaslon aa .predicted, .There was aome dis-agreeiiient amon^ opposition leaders OVT.

The upshot was that It wns loft to Mr, Hoadley to unnounuo tho opposition policy. He said they wore not opposed to a commission, but were opposed, to tho personnel of tlie commission. Tho heralded 'attack of tho opposition on tho London agency also failed to materialize. The remarks on both sides were so low as lo bo scarcely audible in the gallery. When the volo for the London agency was reached Mr. Tweedie wanted a biographical sketch with a view to ascertain Mr. Reid'a quallflcationa. The premier told ot Mr, Rold's lite from tho time he was a toiler on tho Calgary Herald to the day ot his appointment and expressed the opinion that Blairniore, April 3.-A case ot more than usual Interest was decided iu police court at Coleman last week, when Chas. Van Hove, an employee of the liquor llceiise department, was fined ?100 and costs for selling liquor without a license.
