'But if Ih'ere should be another contest, Mr. Grace with a big vote .will remain for .'the people to confirm the vote of yesterday. Mr. Grace suffered .through plumpers for other contestants and to a very limited extent, through the cry of his being an outsider, but he tip with Mayor Hanlie and has nothing to alarincd about, should technicalities make il ncccssary'lp have another'conlesl. The Herald did not advocate the any particular can- didate, leaving it to the people, to select'the men .they, wanted without newspaper influence, hut now that it is over we have no regrets to express at the result. Mr. Hardie has had a year'in office.' lie nvist he credited with having made a close study of.civic conditions .and the people will look to .him to contribute very largely .toi.making commis- sion success. Mr. Hardic may have faults, but '.every man has plenty of them, and we feel sure that he will undertake his work with a large measure of civic patriotism, mixed.with hardhcaded common sense. Mr.Jl'eid's election must certainly be a source of gratification to his friends, He was pitted against Aid. Hamilton, who was in ninny respects the strongest man in the entire field. The election of Mr. Hcid was'not an expression of opinion that his .opponents were not good men, but rather that the people wanted a man in charge of the utiliijcvwho-'underslopd machinery an'd was in- timately acipjainled with the Lethbridge plant. Mr. Reid'is competent.ami the.Ilerald trusts that his fellow commissioners .will give hini the freest possible hand, so that our utilities may he placed on a profit earning basis. Grace's vole is a tribute to the'esleem in which he is held by .the people and the Herald feels sure thai even if il proves impossible to confirm the present result, that he will be eventually -selected lo serve as the new commissioner of public, works. Mr. rHarvey made a fine run and has every- reason to be proud of his showing. He, 'vyill douhlless appreciate that the pop- majority is in favor of Mr. Grace. The defeated candidates, one. and all, whether the vote was large or small, need not lake il .loo much to heart. There were -so fanny candidalcs, some of them had to fall down hard. There was probably nothing personal about ilj The people wanlcd three good men and voted according to judgment rather than for personal reasons. Lcihbridge on January 1st, will he-the .only city in.Canada under straight commission government and let us all get together in a strong patriotic desire and in spirit of to Ihe resl nf Canada .how a modern.cily should be governed.' The task of the first commission is not light. Much will be expected of them, in fact, the success of the new'system of government depends upon their conduct of affairs. The Herald believes they will measure up satisfactorily to their responsibilities. were uiumiuiuus iu "describing it us the most influential, mei'ling of Ihe cuiiipiiigii.' 1'iic expci'imciU is worthy of trying out every- where.

It is now up to the new comitiissioners to make good OB tho commission form of -'government. I'- All Canada will no'w keep a peeper on Lelhbridge lo see how the new form of government'works out. Tlie main thing npw is to settle down to business ahdhelp the commissioners do tlieir level best for the city.'; All that is left .'for the defeated candidates to 'do is to pay their election biiis and shake hands with the winners. There will be some disposilion-to feel sor.e, bul it isn't a sign of bigness. -Forget all about the nasty things said. in the cam- paign: There is no doubt ahoulthc future of Lcthhridge. The main thing is lo future, hy gelling together in a united-pull for the city...' What Lelhbridge insists on is thai Ihe three men elected give all their lime lo the city nml work on the same, principle as jf they were working for a private employer. There no parly politics in this campaign, which was; the best proof that the people were delermincd to give commission government 11 good start. THE CHURCH AND CIVIC LIFE. A UNIQUE feature of the municipal campaign just closed in rt Edmonton was the use of aleiiurch for the purpose of hear- ing the issues discussed. The meeting.waj held in McDbugall Mclhodisl Church and was much Ihe largest and most interesting gathering of the campaign. The pastor of church presided, and n time limit set on the speakers wns rigidly adhered fo. The reverend chairman" remarked that religion is not religion if it is divorced from business, or politics, and there wns nothing lhat :i church should cafcr to more than that which lends for the beffcr- inciif of sociely. While the audience was requeued to dti nothing out of harmony with restrictions were placed on outbursts of approval, and full liberty was given to ask questions ''providing they were written out .and sent to .the platform before ths speaker was callcd.on. The meeting opened with a hymn and closed wilh (he National Anthem, The experiment in the way of bring (he Church into closer touch wiih the people proved an immense success, and tile newspapers of Hdmonlon mus't the watchword of the commission during I Ilia coming year. That was the policy they advocated-and Ihe ratepayers will expect them to adhere to it strictly.
