But a few of the faithful were out and showed considerable enthusiasm and interest. It is too bad that the citizens generally do not take these annual nominations more to heart. It is here that the candidates are chosen to. offer' themselves to the electors for the varioiis positions of responsibility in the governing of the municiiml-ity,and 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 (itiTain in the field, and therefore took 'n:t passive interest. However, tl.o nmetingfor nominations is the place to give the 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 be present. There is no question in our mind as to the sterling worth of each of the candidates nominated last Monday, and that a better bunch to select 'rom would be hard to find. However, if anyone thinks that there is Botue oi^e else wlicT should have been'fl caA'didate, te lias no kick coming, for it was his privilege and duty to see that such person received a nominati&n.

SCHOOL TRUSTEES There will be no contest for school trustees, the required number being elected by acclamation. However, there is one change. Chairman Barford, who has served on the 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 nominated with no opposition. ' The other retiring member of this board, Dr. W. S. Galbraith, was re-nominated. For the Separate school board the old members, John Kenny,, T. D. Kevin and E. Prche were also elected by acclamation. Now came the "testimony" meeting. Mayor Mewbuni was elected to the chair on motion of Messrs. Oliver and Ashcroft. He first called upon the' various nominees, .all of whom were present,, with the exception of V. W. Dooley. Geo. Robinson said that he had sat on the council before and was jain before the public for election. _Je had the greatest interest in the progress of Lethbridge and would do all in his power for the town if elected. He asked Mayor Mew-burn for some information regarding water works system. His Worship .produced some figures and said that the expenditure for running was within contract price for whole system. He thought council deserved credit for the way they had handled this matter for the past nine months. There bad been no great leaks or breakages. A lot of extensions had been put in, and $170,000 was expended. More extensions would be put in next year. The extensive operating department would take care of itself and provide a sinking fund every year. Exact running expenses co^uld not be judged un-til4iboutmiddle of.next summer. AUiaccounts of expenditure would be published after the election. James Ashcroft declared that the city had never had a better or hanler 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 ^as'mayor would do all in his power for the upbuilding of the city. Geo. Rogers, mayoralty candidate, had no particular desire for office, but if elected would stand for Lethbridge and her best interests. He regretted that Dr. Mew-burri wJib retiring, having so satisfactorily filledythe chair during the past year. Mr. Rogers said city had had no trouble with water works system, and many other towns hod. Edmonloii had many difficulties wit;h Irt system and was now^ putting in pumps such as we have here, Pumping by electricity ^i^as adppted altyr a hard fight. He an4^Mr. Sitk had stood by it to a succdsstul finish. It had saved the city $7,51 H). Electric power coutract]was iilxjut $7,500 a year. City receivetl about $2,550 a year from th^ A. R.
