City councils, no matter how hard they work for the city, never get any credit. TheVe is always some narrow minded little knocker around who is prepared to squeal if the taxes go up a half mill.

We may not ogree with him in every respect but we believe in rendering credit where credit is due. A. B. Macdonuld, the choce of the Liberals of the Macliod district for the Federal House, is a pioneer of Alberta. Probably no man is better known than this* popular native of Glengarry, who has been ranching at the foothills of the Rockies for many years. He is acquainted with the needs of all classes, and would make an exceptionally capable representative of the constituency at Ottawa. He is a mini of the very best character, well informed ou all of quick turn out and 1 will support any reasonable net on towards this, and also for the more general distributing of the equipment to enable the ens* end and North Ward to have greater protec-t'on. 1 w'ill do nil in my power to nd-vunce tile welfare o, the city, by cn-| courag-ing Industries, nnd will curry on a vigorous publicity campaign for this purpose.

To the Ratepayers of the City of lethbridge Gentlemen,- The election for Mayor and three Aldermrn is again before you. Having been asked by a large number of the ratepayers to offer myself as a candidate for alderman, I have consented to do so. I am strongly in favor of municipal ownership of all public utilities. The gas well, electric lighting, the water and the condition of our streets are all of outstanding interest at this time, and if elected I will cheerfully devote my utmost energy to guarantee a satisfactory solution of these questions, as well as of all other matters which may come before the Council.

The lady in the eant could not understand such euther conditions for in Ontario, the sun wasn ot shining, but on the ther hand there were rain nnd raw winds. Bunny Alberta ought to be good enough for anybody. OUR POINT OF VIEW The atmosphere of Sunny Southern Alberta is the finest iu the land. Times are better in Lethbridge than any other part of Alberta. Our farmers are still ploughing and this is the first week of December. Do your Christmas shopping early and save the clerks from being rushed to death on Christmas eve. Any candidate for alderman who thinks our streets are creditable should be trimmed at the polls. Wm. Henderson's platform has some real good planks, but thore is one, and that it the division of the city into wards, that the Herald will oppose from 'mow until doomsday In older cities the ward system is being gradually abolished. Compel the now city council to make a proposition to place all the public buildings on the square. S. McLeary Missing. The loss totalled $4,000.

Tho To ehe Ratepayers of the City of lethbridge Dear Sir and Madam:- Having been nominated for a seat on your City Council. I beg to solicit votes on my behalf. Should I receive suftycieut support to enable me to obtainf-the position. I shall endeavor to carry out as far as possible a progressve policy. 1 am in favor of improving our roads and sidewalks in a more permanent way. It we only do a short distance let us do it well. I am also in favor of our city being better lighted and having the lights distributed more evenly. With reference to the water and sewerage systems, I am strongly in favor of the extension of both to the best possible advantage and at all times to meet the greatest need-namely the largest numbers of consumers. Fire protection can. I think, be better secured by distributing some of our equipment to the north and south parts of our eity. I also favor placing the City Engineer in charge of the various departments of work, making him responsfbe to the Council for all new work and improvements or extensions of our present system. With regard to the nortli part of the city, better known perhaps ns North Ward, I shall strongly support spending a fair share of the year's revenue in that district. I feel to Preeident Trades and Labor Council Your VOTE and INFLUENCE respectfully solicited on behalf of IRA M. PIERCE for Alderman Poll on Monday, December Oth 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You have ever thought of a Piano in your home, there is the opportunity today to have one at an unequalled price. You know our reputation for mighty reasonable prices. Well, we are breaking records on a shipment of Heintzman Pianos, arrived yesterday. Come to our store today and investigate these beautiful instruments. Is there any gift that would be as greatly appreciated as a piano for Christmas. :: Organs in stock also The Turpin Furniture Co. tfST We guarantee a square deal to all who trade here. Williams Company can be sum of a some extent that they are justified rlflo. e The police have bean and are put-ling forth overy effort to locate him but so far vi'th no result. Thore Is no cluo as to any reason for his disappearance. Lethbridge is losing a good oltisen by the removal ot Major Belcher. As an officer of the,Mounted Police he - baa been very popular except with .those people who have had to face htm as a magistrate, and then be en ? forced the law. LITTLE CURRENT BURNED.

Iu conclusion, I wish it to be clearly understood, that if at any time the question of a tmbway or overhead bridge, the division of the Square, or the purchase ot tho Electric Light Co'b plant should come before the Council with a view to taking any action, I shall do my best to have whatever proposals are made submitted to the ratepayers, and - shall govern myself according to the wishes of the majority of the electors.
