It is too bad thtit the citizens generally do not take these annual nominations more to heart. It is here that the THE 2 MACS Tailoring News aft Why pay fabulous tailored uarmonts? prices for your Our Tailor Made Garments are made up by The 2 Macs, Ottawa Stilcnfit Co., Montreal No need to be flush to buy a Tailor Made Suit or Overcoat from us FIT GUARANTEED Meat workmanship Canada can produce Note Our Prices: Imported Tweeds and Worsteds in Suits and Overcoats at $18, $20, $22, $24 to $27 Cleaning, pressing and repairing done shortest notice A3 .andidates are chosen to. offer themselves to the electors for the various positions of responsibility in the governing of the municipal ity,nnd in advancing the town's welfare along industrial lines. No doubt the public feel confident that the old men who have done such good service would be j;i:ain in tin field, and therefore took 'u;t passive interest. Howovei, the meeting for nominations is the place to give 1 ho year's work a thorough airing and for this reason, and to see that the best available material is put before the electors, it is the duty of the ratepayers to bo present. There is no question in our mind as to the sterling worth of each of the candidates nominated last Monday, aud that a belter bunch to select from would be hard to find. How-ever, if anyone thinks that there is some one else who should have been a candidate, he lias no kick coining, for it was his privilege and duty to see that such pereon received a nomination. as mayor would do all in his power for the upbuilding of the city. Geo, Rogers, mayoralty candidate had no particular desire for ofHce, but if elected would stand for Lethbridge and her liest interests. He regretted that Dr. Mew-burn' wHb retiring, having so satisfactorily filled the chair during the past year. Mr. Rogers said city had had no trouble with water works Bystem, and many other towns had, Edmonton had many difficulties with her system mid was now putting in pumps such as we have here.,; Pumping by electricity' was adopted after ti hard tight. Ho and Mr. Sick had stood by it to a successful linish. It had saved the city 7,51 ki. Electric power contrtict'was about $7,500 year. City received about, 2,550 a year from the A. R. & I. Co. for pumping; Mi|. Rogers spoke of C. I\ R. Said;that company was exempt from taxes for 20 years, and had rebate on wji t.er There was no taxes'on C. 1'. R. buildings usee by company itself, but those not so used were taxed. Candidate was in favor of an isolation hospital, and said such tin institution was badly needed here. His case was now up to the electors. Win. Oliver said lie only came out again by pressure of request All he owned on earth was in Lethbridge and his heart was with the welfare of the city.

However, there is one change Chairman Barford, who has served on t he board of the Central school for the past ten years so well and faithfully, dropped out, owing to business pressure and in his place G. H. Johnston was nominat-I itl with no opposition. The other rt'tiring member of this board, Dr. \V. S.Galbniith, was re-uominated. | For the Separate school board the old members, John Kenny, T. D. Kevin and E. Piehe were also elected by acclamation. Now came the "testimony'" meeting. Mayor Mewburn was elected to the chair on motion of Messrs. Oliver and Ashcroft. He firBt called uixjn the various nominees, all of whom won* present, with the exception of V. W. Dooley. Geo. Robinson said that ho had sat on the council before and was again before the public for election, lie had the greatest interest in the progress of Lethbridge and would do all in his power for the town if elected. Ho asked Mayor Mewburn for some information regarding water works syBtem. His Worship produced somo figures and said that the expend i ture for running was within con truct price for whole system. Ho thought council deserved credit for the wuy they had handled this matter for the past nine months There had been no great leaks or breakages. A lot of extensions hac' been put in, and $170,(X)0 was ox Kended. More extensions would e put in next year. The extensive operating department would take care of itself and provide a sinking fund every year. Exact running expenses could not be judged until about middle of next summer. All accounts of expenditure would be published after the election. Jumes Ashcroft declared that the city had never had a better or harder working council than the present one. Experts claimed that Lethbridge has one of the best water works systems in Canada. Mr. Ashcroft said he had a record of being at more meetings than any other councilman, and if elected grtL... , ... ...... It was possible io have a good up-to-date grist mill hero and would do all in his power for one if elected. Mr. Oliver moved a vote of thanks to Mayor Mewburn before he sat down. \ A. Ronney said he had no past to refer to, but if elected to the council would do his best to pro mote the best interests of Lethbridge. He would like to see the vacant lots taxed according to their rise in value. Job Reed aired a few opinions from a ratepayer's standpoint. He would like to see pumps placed in different parts of the city so that people living in lanes and away from the niaiiw^.could go and get water for fairaftuise. Tim system was in vogue^LWinnipeg. He did not like the idW. f.'f having *to pay 121c per barrel for water. R. Nimmons claimed that he had never missed a nomination meeting for the last fifteen years and that they were attended better in the early days than they are now Either people had great faith in council or did not take same inter est as they should. He seconded Mr. Oliver's motion for a vote of thanks to Mayor Mewburn. The motion was unanimously carried Replying. Dr. Mewburn said in part that it was due to the pressure of his professional duties he was forced to decline to stand for an other tiiin. His interest in tlu city"8 welfare would never flag and he was willing to lend assistance at any time for her future progress Jus. Ritchie thought water rates should be ieduced to 75c a month. W. Morris made a few remarks re delivery of water and thought council should set- that better service was given. A point to remember about our overcoats is, they are not Ready-Made as the term Ready-Mnde is understood.
