They Imve luid jhe opportunity of hearing nil the candidates, including the memWrs of lliu Citi- zen's Ticket. not Hie impartial man readily sec Ihal so far as civic business is concerned, no oilier can- didate could'approacb Mr. Harelip. He has demon- strated thai lie is the only candidate with anything like fin adequate khbwldege of civic afl'airs, lie is the only mini who is in n position to give satisfac- tory service.. Why swap horses crossing ,'tlie strenm? The Cily.is gelling out of'Hie deepest water, thanks .lo Mr. Hardie.. (live him the opporUinily of taking us clear across to progress again.. "Mr." :Hanlie enicrcd oHice inheriting the heaviest' .load, any.jnnyor could very iycH- inherit iii a city tlie'size of Lellibridge. -H.was'a job fo make the strongest man Mr. Hardie bent his back lo (lie he had encounter -many obstacles, he stuck to il manfully and day .and night, his sen-ices were given to Hie of Lethbridge, for a decidedly.luwicst salary. He has blazed the. trail lo Lei him finish the job. Sliv Urflre has not indulged in oratorical fireworks bill he has-piainly shown the people that from the slanVlpoinl of ability he has a reputation which aiiy en- gineer might envy.. He. is a man who has. done big achieved eminently satisfactory results. He is largely interested in Lethbridge, this was home, and his present home.

All the candidates have ideas. Mr. not only has the ideas but the ability lo carry Iheiii put, and that should .'conul some in the present slage of Lcth- history.

Why place a man in charge'who .would have to accept Ihc dictation of subordinalcs. Any other "candidate lhan Mr. elected, have lo ac- the diclum of an employee. .That would be only nalural. A man who is clpctrical. or steam en- gineer would have lo accept Ihc oflicials under him.
