Buchanan Managing Director John Torrance Business Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Greek King Constantino has given bis word to the Associated Press that Greek troops will not interfere with allied forces who are compelled to retire to Greek territory. But the Greek King's word to the Associated Press and his word to the allied powers may be two different things, the allies are still awaiting defi- jiite answer to their recent demands. The Teuton invaders of Serbia are believed to be planning an attack of the allied forces in southern Serbia. German sources SST French have ulready retired before a preliminary attack. In France, the German lines arc being henvily tjombardyd by the French. Thero is no confirmation that Canadian troops have recently Buffered heavy losses in attacks on the German lines. The food problem in Germany is a; live question in the Reichstag, which one of the promising In tha world ought to be enough. Apart from tlici, and it Is R very significant circumstance, men arc putting up largo Btimv of money to bore for oil in this district.' H IB tbotr own mon- ey, not that of hundreds of people to wliom they might have gold stock. These men, who have had experience in toe big .oil before, are slak- ing their money on the Cardston pro- position. They are doing their work quietly but earnestly. They, are not peddling publicity to the press or soiling shares. They believe the oil Is there and they are working to get it with their own money.

ATTEND THE PUBLIC Ratepayers who are sincerely .terested in municipal affairs should attend the public meetings during tno t week. The views of the candidates spn municipal questions are importan! epough for serious consideration. A candidate's utterances on the plat form may decide a man's vote. The 1 treatment siren to municipal ques ttons by a candidate will enable many ratepayers to decide whether he Jts worthy of .office or not.

IF FOR McKENZIE Alberta, Dw. 7th, To The Electorate, City of LaUikrldfe Dour Sir or Mudmn: As it is neccsssnry Hint an election should Uke place on December 13th, 1915, foi the selection of a Commis- Public Utilities to serve the City for the years 1016, 1917 and take this opportunity of presenting to those who may not be able to attend the public meetings, the fact that having served the city in the above capacity for the past two years, and having gained such experience as leads me to be- lieve I am now more capable to serve you than when first elected, I am a candidate for re- election and am prepared to ac- cept this Commissionership, should a majority of the Citi- desire it. Being unfortunately a human have made mistakes in the past. You will, I believe credit me with the same sin- cere desire to give the Oily my best services, as you believed I possessed first elected, Out of mistakes lessons have been learned Which will be val- uable jfuides in the conduct of my department in the future, and the experience gained during the two very strenuous years of municipal life now closing, is ray strongest claim for your fur- ther support. In order to properly present im own claims', it is also nec- essary that I present in some measure, the claims which Com- mission Form of Government has earned through the exper- ience of the City under this Form of Government since its in- ception. I have shared in that government and feel that, in my humble way, I have influenced it. Under Com- mission Forjn -of Government there has resulted greater pub- licity with reference to the City's affairs, and greater knowledge on the part of the public as a result. While the Commissioners i have directed general policies, yet the public have been directly consulted with reference In important matters, such as assess- ment, and estimates of civic There been effected a reduction of approximately between the es- timates of ,1913 and 1915. Further, the Commissioners were able, through strictest economy to actually save on the estimates of 1914, (he sum of approximately Today, the city is being directed by men giving their full time and, experience to its affairs, instead of by men whose, time and interests were largely occupied outside of the city's Without indulging in tiresome details, I do wish to present to the publjc the following facts with reference to the operation of the department actually under my direction. Through the practise of the'most rigid economy consilient with'service, the Street buji been placed in a position which tiill show an approximate profit over the estimated operating perises. for the current year of This in spite of the fact that traffic receipts to the end of November, showed a de- crease of approximately as compared with the first eleven months of 1914. In this connection I might mention for the encouragement of the public, that, although there is large decrease for the eleven months, there has been a material in- crease over 'the figures for 1914, for the months of August, Sep- tember, October and November, which to a revival of traffic, which will improve the situation of the Street Railway very much if continued. Although (he total figures are not at present available, yet I can definitely state that the of the City Electrical De- partment for the ye-'ir 1915 will be reduced approximately as compared with the expenses for 1014. For the year 1914, taxes to the extent of over were charged to the cal Department, -which offset in the operating expenses, and yet, in spite of this large extra charge, the total expenses only showed an increase of approximately The average number of men Departments under my control, when I entered into office seventy-one. Today, there is an average of forty-seven.'' This speaks for it- self. I do not wish to burden the public with unnecessary details, but I do wish tp state that I enter this election contest with the belief that there is nothing in connection with the operation of my department which I would wish to hide from the public, and I invite' the moat thorough examination into all my by the on the platform, as opportunity will present in this short campaign, or in a personal way. Should the' Citizens of this city entrust to me the duties of Commissioner of Public Utilities for the coming three I pledge myself to uivu in ihc iuiiire, I have in the past, the best 'of niy experience, knowledge and ability in carrying out Ihc duties of my office. With full appreciation of the support which hat been corded me in the past, I leave the decision in four faithfully. ARTHUR REID.
