Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Volume V. '.SIXTEEN PAGES Lcthbridge, Alberta. Sadirday, December 7, 1JU2 CENTS Mr. W. J. McCambly has a Policy Which Cer- tainly Looks Good AN OUTLINE Gives a Concrete Proposition for Consideration of the Ratepayers Mr. W. J. McCambly, interviewed to- day, came out strongly in favor of the industrial policy, upon which he is .standing, as offering tho best solution yet offered of a problem which has long perplexed the city. Mr. McCambly has worked out a splendid policy, which, if given a chauce would undoubtedly bring re- sults. It is upon this policy he is stand- ins, and on It he asks the electors to endorse him if they want to see Letb- bTidge develop industrially. He favors offering manufacturers u. free site in the industrial section, conditionally upon the manufacturer agreeing to spend a" stipulated amount each year in wages, In other words, in return tor. favors from the city, he would ex pect the factory to give a equivalent in the form of a wage roll to its em- ployees. Secondly, he is in favor of the indus- trial site beins laid out at. once, and in such manner that the city would o'wn the math track through it, to avoid jnpnopoly on the part of .any one railway, and 'so that the city could give all railways equal rights, and .ob- viate the necessity of a -duplication of unnecessary tracks, and the railway companies could den) with .the maun- ;et tile busi- Party Politics in the Civic could si t'acturers as they Each manufacturer to have the right to build a spur, to his .factory from the main track owned by the city. .Mr. McCambly also favors taking the site into the city at the earliest possible (Into, and the extension there- to of the water, sewer, and light. He would as soon as the new coun-K> cil met, introduce a motion looking to the formulating- of an industrla commission, and th'e delegating po'n'er to offer the inducements with in the privileges the council decided on As an Mr. McCambly knows something about steam, and power production, and he is positive the millions of tons of slack going to waste at the mines could be utilized to produce power cheaper than is af- forded by natural -Medicine Hat, for example. As Mr. McCambly is the first, and only man to come'forward with a con- crete policy on the matter of new in- dustries, the- ratepayers should think it over carefully, and if they see in it a solution of Industrial Lethbridge, de. cide to give him a.chance electing him to the city council. In a front-page screech this morning, the News made the first attempt to Introduce party 'politics into a .municipal cam- paign in this city. One thing the western cities have prided themselves on, has been' the el- (initiation of. party bolltlcs, and thus avoided the influences which have cursed eastern cit- ies, particularly fine or two in the neighborhood of Toronto. Party politics have no place in municipal government.' They are no concern of the people 'who are paying their taxes for water, light, sewers, parks, in- dustries and everything which goes to make for a good home a bright, progressive, com- merclal city. The. Herald is f? quite positive that neither tho Conservative or Liberal organ- ization in this city have taken the first step In this campaign to express a preference, for any candidate, and the..statement in the-Mornings ;News was de- concocted for tho purpose of -aiding a badly worsted Lethbridge. cannot afford to 'check its future by introducing party politics into municipal af- fairs, and the more so as with, the big campaign ahead; to boost the .city Industrially, it is necessary to have all citizens stand as one man. .Men are not paying taxes direct from their pockets to pol- itical party, and the sooner Lnlld 's expectvl to be.j Starland theatre also offered to puti happv There need not be on! child Jon a special matinee for-the children1 entertained at the home on Christmas Day.

Vote For Commission Government ON 1IOM3AY there is one question which-looms larger than the selec- ion of a mayor and council, and that Is the decision of the people as Tho T whlc" In this city in future. The cuy council ,s submitting a referendum and while four questions are being asked, the Herald feels that in view of. the result of the plebiscite taken two years ago, and which resulted so overwhelmingly in favor of commission government, the referendum this time should have dealt only withjhe form of commission goverhiient preferred. ie Herald would strongly urge its readers to ignore To avoid confusion th- OFF TO EUROPE WILL RETURN IN FEBRUARY AND START WORK ON BIG APART- MENT HOUSE the three first questions, and vote for straight commission form' people i Fred W. Downer leaves on Sunday morning for New sailing lor Liverpool, on. Saturday and will re- l-luke warm on the subject be elected. That there is general dissatisfaction with the present system of govern- ment is evident from the speeches being made by the candidates, and also from opinion expressed on all Bides. In view of the fact that such widespread dissatisfaction exists it ap- pears to the Herald the only logical thing for the ratepayers to do is to vote for a change, and to make that change as much different from the turning hoi giunr, and expects to reach Leth- in case a clash should occur. Paris, Dec. council of state today handed down a sensational judgment which annuls all the ap- pointments made by ex-Foreign Min- ister .Deceives during; fourteen years lie prefect of the Seine'depart-! nient. It appears that Hie puUica-j tion. oi nominations in the offcial' journal, which is required by was never done. i The judgment creates an extraor- CONSERVATIVE dinary situation, as it involves prac- tically all the employes of the city oi Paris. The question was raised before the council of state by a proip of who thought that 'their, Resina, Dee. 7.-Fot the present at iaa been passed over in tho .east the incrairy into the.

Mr. Bradshaw, one of the Conserva-j MEMBERS WITH- DRAW PROM THE COMMITTEE INVESTIGATING ELECTION present system as possible. Straight Commission government will undoubtedly ensure better rule at city hall. Better in the sense that paid men will devote all their time to watching every detail of civic business. The aldermen under the present form do the best they can, but not-being paid they arc certainly not called on to sacrifice all their time, and tfould receive very little thanks if they did. What Lethbridge should do is to get down to a straight business basis and like any big concern have expert management of tiie business affairs of the city. The talk about added expense should not count for much. Three shrewd commissioners would save their salaries In the purchasing of civic supplies alone. The plea that the change would weaken the hold of the people on their own affairs will not stand the test of experience or analysis: In the recall and the initiative-referendum the people get much nearer than they do now. The recall has a potent tendency to keep commissioners steady on the job for the people. Commission government would elevate the whole tone of municipal life. It would remove it from the sphere of petty discussion, and we would have all issues discussed from a straight business standpoint. It would make municipal service attractive to' the best men benefit the city from every aspect. i..... Quebec, Dec. seem As to the plebiscite on Monday the" Herald, without wishing to Intro- sVflLient ter n" duce any suggestion of discoid, would urge its readers 10 ignore the ques-..companies to avoid famine the sM lhis tion relative to the present system, and "plumii" for straight commission Catholic center mid Socialist Demo- government, jcratic parties, which The reason for taking this position is that the people by three to one'2110 votcs. wil] vote against tlie mea- have already voted for commission government, and the referendum on i its Monday as a result should have been confined to ascertaining which form of government they prefer. The Herald does not think that the hybrid form of commission and council is in the best interests of tho city, and for that reason would advise voting only for the last question on the ballot. bridge by the end of February.

"I have a le.tter in my pocket from a prominent lawyer on the other side of the line, 'who says 'Make it straight.' How- ever, we cannot be guided by the opinions of5 any one man in this matter, nor by. the opin- ions of. the members of- the council. We want the voice of all. "I believe that commission form of government.is the gov- ernment of the future. It makes the people take interest in things municipal all the time. But there'are so many forms of commission. govern- ment that it rests with the peo- ple to decide.
