Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta fMl LITMMlMt MWULft. A Good Talk On Government By Commission (High River It was indeed 2. move well made when Ex-Mayor Gaetz and Clerk Steplieiiijuu "wcic iiiVitcu to Kigli er to inform our citizens as to the methods pursued in the government of Red Deer, the town with the just reputation of being the best governed in the Province oi Alberta, and the meeting on Tuesday night was a more than satisfactory result of this ac- tion of the council. Mayor Young, iu his remarks in op- ening the meeting, plainly and brieily the circumstances leading up to the decision to make the effort to assemble the ratcpayi-rs and citi- zens to receive a message from the experienced municipal legislators from our sister town in the north. In his comment mention was made of the lack of demonstration of interest in local government on the part of High River citizens. High River, he said, had a place of eminence among the municipalities of Alberta, and his personal ambition and aim and that of his colleagues on the. council was not only to retain its high standing, but to improve in every manner pos- sible. This aim was not with the object of securing a high place in com- parison to sister places, but to give to the citizens and ratepayers the best municipal government for the least expenditure of money. Ex-Mayor Gaetz, of Red Deer, be- ing introduced, prefaced his address with complimentary references to sev- eral of the institutions of our town, tbe many evidence of prosperity and progress, and special mention was made of the enterprise oi the council in their search for instruction and information that might be of value in attaining to the perfection of lo- cal government which was their ex- pressed object. "Development of Sell Government" was the theme follorved by Ex-Mayor Gaetz, and the subject afforded him tho opportunity for a. discussion of v matter which has been of much in tcrest to him as a municipal legisla- tor, during his experience of several years, and the lessons taught by this experience were delivered in a com- prehensive and entertaining mannei to his auditors. He traced the development of gov- ernment from the -time democracy j was unknown until the democracy is the principle oi govern- ment. The speaker emphasized many events of history which formed the points of turning in the evolution of government, until the present, when we enjoy the value of which now exists in this connection. The law under which we are now- operating is wide, giving consider- able powers to municipal councils, making the franchise as general as possible, and otherwise gives the right to administer our own business to some- in our own wav. But these powers should be broadened, he claimed and urged that each munici- pality should impress upon its local representative in the Legislature the necessity of raring for the municipal- ities in this direction in the considcr- will receive the attention of the Leg- ation of thf1 rrw Municipal Act which islattire at tbe next session. "The Commission System" formed the subject of the address by Mr. He made plain the work- ing of the system of government by commission by detailing the methods adopted in Red Deer and applied to every branch of town Tne speaker is an officer of the municipal- ity in the double capacity of Town Clerk and Commissioner, for which he receives per month. There are only two commissioners in their case, the Mayor being the second, and receives a remuneration of per! month.

Tbe attitude of the management of the show is greatly at variance with what has been done by other exhi- bition boards in Canada and the Unit- ed States.

C., Dec. moving picture of the assassination of Prince Ho is to be used at the trial of the Korean assassin, according to the advices brought by the steamer Kag- jamarux, which reached port this morning. When Prince 1 to was meet- ing M. Kokovssovofi, Russian Minis- ter of Finance, a Russian cinemato- graph co. photographer appeared to take pictures of meeting, and took scenes attendant upon the assassina- tion of Prince Ito. When the Japanese officials learned that the pictures of the tragedy were successful they took steps to secure a film that was feet long, and this will be shown in court at the trial of the assassin. M. Tagoi, of the Japanese Press agency at Tokio, has bought a set of the lilms, comprising the scenes of the assassination and these will be exhibited in Japan. Chinese newspapers fear that the death of Prince Ito will result in a changed policy by Japan to China, owing to -the military party being; brought to power with the passing, of Ito as head of the civil party, ac- cording to advices brought by the Kagamaruf to-day. The Pekin Times. says that while Ito refrained from making striking coups to boast his- personal ambitions, his successors, will likely not do so and China'mar SiiiSer in consequence. ,A report is current at Pekin that an amnesty will be offered Yang Ytt i Wai, the exiled reformer, and he will, be invited to return to Pekin. Japan has agreed to train naval cadets for China according to advices. brought by Kagamarux. A number of Chinese have been admitted to toe- naval gunnery school and on gradua- tion will be placed on board Japanese warships to be trained as officers for i the Chinese future navy. iMnvestigations have been started by jthe Japanese communications depart- ment with a view to granting a sub- sidy for a" line of Japanese steamers, to run to Hongkong, French India.
