Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta nviWAY, DKCKMBIW o, THE HERALD PAGE FIVE is tie Election (By the Mah-bn-the-Street) Ai Ihe Central School the other infllil, Mr. Nim- mons slated Ihal he hardly knew whether lo vote for ('.race. Hamilton or Oliver. II struck the Man-oii-the-Slrcet lliul likely there were a lot ol other citizens who in the same boat as Mr. Niminons. So I have been doiiifj a little moling around since. And do I :lind? the City Charier provides that to be elected one of the candidates must receive over ol the votes casl. From a careful personal canvass the Man-on-the-Slreel believes, lhat be" elected on first choice ill be no one will ballots, and thai there NAVIGATION NOT YET CLOSED Oulutli, Uoc. dale for the close of navigation on tho Great Lukes again has been ft dot forward, and Instead of to- day, an formerly announced, the last '-oats will not leave Duluth until Monday or even later. Less than 150 Votes between High and Low Man and thai the nexl Commissioner of Public Works be linaily chosen on second c.hoice ballots. Yon know bow this is done. If when the lirsl choice ballols are all counted il is found Hint no one of the candidates lias received more than of the voles cost, then Hie candidate having least number of first choices is eliminated and bis ballols are liien distributed between Hie. other two, having regard only lo huw they arc marked as lo second choice. Plumping wil! do your candidate no good, and voting both lirsl and second choice will do him no 'harm, so il is.up to all voters to vole First Choice for One Candidate-and. Second Choice for Another The c.hoice between candidates is very largely a matter of choice between Mr. Grace and either one of the oilier two. Mr..Grace's adminislralion of the Works, Depa'iiiiient for tile past three years is on trial. What has he clone? The Man-on-lhe-Streel finds Ihal the average, voter thinks Ihal for Ihc city Mr. Grace has had little to do but draw his breath and a nice fat salary of Any other man in.the same- position would have done little more; as there was little else, lo do. So there is no choice between the three can- didates as lo lhat. The expenses of IhcvPtiblic-Works Department' have boon materially less the lasl Ihree years Ihan they were in Hie extravagant years preced- ing Mr" Grace claims credit for this. Credit lo whom credit is due. The average .citizen .Iclls the Man-on-the-Slreel that this is all bunk, and Ihal it was Mayor Hardic- who. silling -on the benah shot-gun in hand, held up expen- School Board that both the other Commis- sioners. Mi-.'Grace included, lo reduce the expen- diture in their departments to "the irreducible as Ihc mayor says. And it Mr. Hamilton or Mr. Oliver had been Commissioner in place of Mr. Grace they would have equally been subject to the dictates of Hie mayor when il came lo expenses. Thus they are all three equal on that count. the. Man-on-lhe-Slrcel is lold lhat Mr. Grace was three venrs-agq elected IP his present position as a member of the Hardic-Grace-Keid slate The machine elected the slate as a slate, and'iiol on individual merits of the different mem- bers thereof And the machine has since made the boast th it they could have elected man IhiA wished in the same manner. Even at that we hc-u tint Mi Grace was the lowest man and iLcened less turn 50% of the votes cast, even iflei TH possible second choices had been lo him Doubtless either of the present other two- cmduljles could have at that lime been elected 1 id Ihev been members of the slate. And so the. (act tint Mi Gi ice'was elected last lime is nothing' in Ins this lime. So 1 it ts Hit.
