He also proposed if elected to investigate the proposed gravity water system and to support a movement for its culmina tion if a feasible plan is offered.

Til ley's Reception Andrew Tilley, the next speaker, was accorded a warm reception. Mr.- Tilley's important points were govern- ment by commission and the estab- lishment of a municipally owned! street railway system. He favored the former -because no other form of gov- ernment was so 'businesslike, nor did it afford the same opportunity for fix- ing the_ responsibility where it pro- perly belongs. Discussing the street railway pjank in his platform, Mr. Tilley expressed the hope that the provincial govern- ment would' soon proceed with the erection of the proposed -bridge across the river. It should be equipped, he said, with facilities for laying electric rails, and in this manner Lethbridge would be placed in active touch with important centres on the west side of the river. Referring to the tearing up of ground for the railway system, .Mr. Tilley said t.har: it must be final! and all underground conduits, etc., must be laid before the rails go down Y OU get P ure Cream H ere HILL BLOCK DUFFERIN STREET ;
