Modern Way of Killing Turkey: 'S HELD IN Mayor Hatch Kept "ivecklers at Bay and Created a Splen- did Impression The best meeting of the municipal campaign so far was that held in Unity Hall last evening. The crowd taxed the capacity of the building to its utmost and the best of good na- ture prevailed. Robert Nimmons took the chair and filled that position ad- mirably. Mayor Hatch was on hand and effectively put the muzzle on his critics who were forced to sit quietly on and listen while His Worship with unerring accuracy shot home point after point. The mayor's speech was from beginning to end surcharged with sound logic and left no doubt in the minds of his hearers that the work of the 1912 council was beyond criti- cism in view of the fnct that the rate- payers had voted the expenditures. Only one disagreeable feature marked the proceedings and that wag a num- ber of ignorant and unwarranted re- inarks made by persons who would have been, better outside the'city of Lethhridge. The mayor strengthened his position in every way and impres- sed the ratepayers. Mayor Hatch's Speech Mayor Hatch was received with loud applause and lost no time in go- ing into his operations while occupy- ing the chief magistrate's chair during the past year. He pointed out the pro- gress made by Lethbridge during his regime and emphasized in no uncer- tain manner the development of the city since his arrival here some 12 years ago. When he was elected as mayor one year ago he found that the citizens had already voted monies for the building of the street railway and many other- civic, improvements. The city had to go ahead and fulfil the several contracts already made in or- der to avoid lawsuits. The mayor was very glad to say that the city was now passing successfully through a crisis which would eventually place it on a high plane throughout Western Canada. He was sure that there had been no unfair discrimination between North and South Lethbridge and he did not believe that there could be any criticism of the good work done by the present council. He felt that they could only congratulate them- selves on the work already done. (Ap- plause.) of the forecast for 1913. j it was at the present time somewhat difficult to do this. In order to go ahead it was now necessary to look 'after very closely the work of indus- trial development which would place Lethhridge where it rightfully belong- ed. His Worship had met at least ninety per cent, of those who had made enquiries concerning locating industrial concerns here. Indeed, in c'onnecUon with the nail factory he i had gone so far as to subscribe ?1COO, hut Cod, the concern blew tip, and Lothbridge way saved from the humiliation of having an insolvent concern in its midst. (Laughter.) lie had not lost any lime within the past, five years in endeavoring to secure in- dustries. His irk-a was to get .1 radial j railway connecting up all the mines. I At the, present time, however, it was j impossible for the city to finance the undertaking, but he suggested that at the next PCSPIOH of the legislature a charter might be obtained by tho city piving (hem ihe privilege in this con- nection. ed his critics and showed clearly the transaction affecting the sale of the debentures. The city had to go ahead and every available means w'n.s adopt- ed to send it on its way to prosperity. It was necessary to make a. showing in view of the fact of the world's Dry Farming Congress coming ro the city. His Worship pointed out had been borrowed from the Bank of Nova Scotia on the personal security of himself and certain members of the council in order that the payroll might be met. Aid. right." Questions S. W. Tuckwell wanted to know why the polls closed at five o'clock. Mayor to the charter it is illegal to close at eight.'1 IIr. not satisfied." The the polls have been kept open illegally, and U we continue this the sale of the bonds would be affected." Mr. Tuckwell stllljtept at it, but the crowd yelled to shut up. Mr. understand the city solicitor is the whole cheese.1' The J can't .do, every- thing, and I am not the whole clieese." (Cheers.) (Mr. will you see that the city Solicitor does no! control the council." Here the crowt broke in and roared to -Mr..Tuckwell to sit down. Mr. Peebles wanted to know if there had been any petty larceny graft go- ing on in certain civic work, to which His .Worship' replied that so far as he knew there had been none. Davey you got embod- ied in the new city charter that house- holders will have a The will of the people will prevail." Davey continued his cross'firing but the mayor wag on the job and held his ground to the delight of the crowd. the Lelh- bridge Herald, thinks you are a. llttlf tin God." and ihe crowd laughed. Mr. Tuckwell went after the mayor again but ihe crowd objected ana he wns closed up. Mr. Hardle Speaks W. D. L. Hardie had nothing to take back in connection with statements he had made concerning the local improve ment situation. He could substantiate everything he had said in spite of his friend, the Lethbridge Herald, who had that evening an editorial object- ing to his reasoning. Mr. Hardie would not take hack anything he had said because if ho had made any errors he was led into them through the system of bookkeeping in vogue at the city hall. Mr. Hardie again attacked the Herald on the difference between and on tho sale of the bonds, and went into details concerning the bond transaction, lie thought the Herald The Financial Situation tho mayor said Lcth- was not alone in its financial trouble, ;us Montreal and other cities were hard pressed for cash, lle.siat- ed that tho city debentures were sold recently at SSV-. which was a bettor price ihan that obtained by a number of other places.

While Mr. Hardie was giving his views on the bond sale question Aid. Skeith took occasion to correct him. Mr. Hardie said that the ticket on the commission ballot which was publish- ed in tho Herald was a lie. W. 11. else do you expect from the Herald." (Groans and laughter.) At this point several disorderly per- sons directed remarks at the mayor when Mr. Hardie said that Mayor Hatch was at least a gentleman and _ie thought he should receive courteous treatment. (Loud cheers.) Mr. llanlie said Lethbridge was rie- jlecting its stomach for the sake of )eautification. when a ratepayer snid: 'Don't knock." Mr. Hardie came back md snapped: "I'm not a tncl the crowd yelled. M..K. Kaakc asked Mr. Hardie con- lerninp his viev.'s on the social evil, o which he replied that he would see that the police did its duty, Mr, GIMespie's Views Joseph GHleRpie did not like tho tress any too well, and said according o reports he was the worst black- ruard that ever lived. He admitted that everybody madp mistakes and tated that the government of the city liould not he blamed for any mistakes which it.may have made. He was not in a fit state of health to address the ratepayers, but took the opportunity of saying that he was in favor of straight commission form of government. Mr. Tuckwell again got his question box working but the chairman ruled for order. Mayor Mr. GUIeBpie know of any time when the action of the council was not air. can't say." (More interruptions.) Other Candidates Speak Aid. Williamson, Donald McNabb and W. .1. McCambly also made brief addresses. S. W.

McKillop, three popular school hoard candidates, impressed the audience favorably with their views for the furtherance of educational af- fairs'. It was nn eventful meeting and Chairman Nimmons is to be congrat- ulated on his handling of a hard task. Tom Mann, labor leader, speaking in l-ondon, introduced a resolution (which carried) that workingmen would strike to prevent supplies go- the army and navy in the event of war.
