A bis battle is tailored to be pending there. The Montenegrins are offering strenuous resistance to the Teuton invaders of their country.

That is true ot every community in Alberta. We have a crop, and no coun- try ever goes on the rocks under cir- cumstances of Ihnt kind. Our crop brought the greatest average yields of any crop known on this continent. That's a boastful statement, bin we would suggest to any United Slates publisher doubting the statement that he communicate with a former citi- zen of his community residing in Can- adn and ask him for his opinion, :ind are satisfied that what we say wll! be home out. Tile country Is taxed, tat not heav- ily taxed. We are satisfied that any part of the United States possessing the conveniences the Alberta farmer possesses is much more greatly tax- ed, in the states across the line we are satisfied taxation is much heavier than in Alberta. It is true taxation j is heavy in the cities, .but that is our ovrn faull. W'a huilt too expensively, I believing the boom was never goms to cease.

No doubt southern Alberta and. particu- larly the Lethtridge district will be veil represented. This district lias fcaen honored during the past year in having a representative oa the execu- tive ot the great organization, in the person of S. S. Dunham, who is a .vice-president. Sir. Dunham has giv- en >-illing1y and unsparingly of his time in the interests of the farmers and the farmers' unions, and the south should have as strong a repre ccntatlon at the convention as would ensure the election at least as good a. man as Mr. Dunham to repre- cent the south.

In asking yon for. your sup- port in this campaign for the position of Commissioner of Public Utilities, I must refer you to my work as a success- ful electrician and -business man in-tills city during the past eight years. I-believe that the same courtesy, the same atten- tion to detail, anil the same business acumen, applied to the various departments of the city's interests, will produce a like successful result. The power plant'is now con- structed and iu operation. The mistakes that have been made there, however serious, have to :bg contended with andfo'r some considerable time'I could not promise much reduction in operat- ing expenses on account of existing conditions. The plant must continue to operate, and the only way that we can expect to re- duce pur light and power rates, or our street railway and water- Works charges is by increasing our uptown load. As the Electric Department can liandle a 50% increase of load.with approximately a W% increase of operating costs, it is obvious to you that a great effort should be made lo secure that increase. It is my belief that systematic business methods will give ns a large increase in load, which will enable us to lower our selling prices and induce a greater amount of our pro- duets to be consumed. It is my opinin that the present Com- missioner is not making sufficient efforts lo attain these ends. In the operation Street Railway too close attention is given to the running of ihe cars over the tracks a certain num- ber of times per day. If more attention was given to the traf- fic retniirements, the public would receive better service and Ihe system would correspondingly profit. Mr Reid has as yet failed to satisfactorily explain the error of over in the meter reading at the Ellison Mills, in the past two years, orvthe error of at the Sherlock Block, or the .error of at" the Taylor Mills. He Wamest these mistakes On Ms subordinates but he cannot evade the responsibility in this manner, This means direct loss of money to the city. He ha? Judge J.' K.

Lei me again call your attention to the fact that the success- ful operation of our Utilities depends upon this increased use.

M. FREEMAN ADDRESS TO THE ELECTORS Lethbridge, Alberta, Dee. 7th, 1915 To The Electorate, City of 'Lethbridge Dear Sir or Mudum: As it is neccsssary that iin election should take place 011 Monday, December Ullh, 1015, 1'or the selection of a Commis- sioner of Public Utilities to serve the. Cily for the years 1910, 1917 mid 1918, 1 lake this opportunity of presenting lo those who'imiy not be.'able to attend the public meetings, the fact Ihiil I having served the city in the above capacity for the past Iwn 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 Commissionersbip, should a majority of the Citi- zens desire it. Being unfortunately a human being 1 have made mistakes in the past. You' will, I believe credit me with- the same sin- cere desire to give the. City my best services, as you believed 1" possessed when first elected. Out' of mistakes lessons; have been learned which will be val- uable guides 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 my strongest claim for your fur- ther support. In order to properly present my own claims, it is also nec- essary that I present in some measure, the claims which Conv missibii Form of Government has earned through the exper- ience of the City' under this 'Form of Government since its in- ception. .This because, 1 have shared in that government arid feel that, in liiy humble way, I have influenced it. Under Com- mission Form of Government there has resulted greater pub-; licily with reference to the City's affairs, and greater knowledge on the part of the public as a result. While the Commissioners have directed general policies, yet the public have been.uirectly consulted with r-eference to important matters, such as assess- ment, and estimates of civic expenditures. There, has beuii .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, the sum of approximately Today, the city is being directed by men giving their full. lime and experience to its aifairs, instead of by men whose time and interests were largely occupied outside of the city's business. Without indulging in tiresome details, I do wish to present to, the public the following facts, with -reference to the operation' of the department actually under my direction. Through the practise of the most rigid economy consistent with service, the Street Railway system has been placed in a position which show an approximate profit over the estimated operating ex- penses for the current year of This in spite of the fact that traffic receipts lo 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 a 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 points lo a revival of traffic, which will improve the situation of the Street Railway very much if continued. Although the total figures are not at present available, yet I can definitely state that the expenses of the City Electrical De- partment year 1915 will be reduced approximately as compared with the expenses for 1914. For the year 1914, taxes to the extent of over were charged io the Eleclri-; cal Department, which offset savings in the operating and yet, in spite 'of this large extra charge, the total expenses; only showed an increase of approximately The average number of men employed in all Departments' under my control, when I entered into office was seventy-one, Today, there is an average of forty-seven. This speaks for it-' I do not wish lo burden the public with details, but I do wish to slate thai-1 enler'lhis election contest with the belief that there is nothing in connection with the' operation of mv department which I would wish to hide" from the public, and I invite the most thorough examination into all .my acts by the on the platform, as opportunity will present in this'short campaign, or in a personal way. Should Ihe Citizens of this city entrust lo me the duties of Commissioner of Public Utilities tor me coming three years, 1 pledge myself lo give in Ihe lulurc, as I have in Ihe past, the best of my experience, knowledge and ability in carrying out the duties of my office. With full appreciation of the support which has been ac- corded me in the'past, 1 leave Ihe decision in your hands, i Yours faithfully, ARTHUR REID.
