Do Not Forget the Industrial Policy NOW THAT THE ELECTIONS are over the ratepayers should not be.content to sit back and take nit Jntcreat..In things municipal for another year.' Such a course often leads to unjust criticism at election .time. And it does not tend to put the council in a position to know public opinion on the questions or the day. There is one question iu particular 'which the citizens should not lose their interest in. That is the Indus-, trial policy which has been so import- ant an issue during the campaign. It 'seems imperative that Lethbrldge shall adopt some new measures for inducing industries to locate here. With its abundance of slack coal, and -with its strategic position, as. a dis-' triBiiting centre, this city should not have to wait long until industrial con. corns express a desire to get in on the ground floor. This lime can be Imstened by th'e council. The possi- bilities of our slack coal, our. water our electric power, and the range" of our these mat- ters investigated, the data "iiit in concrete form, and then a spec- ial'eiiiissary sent to" inquiring'indus- trial concerns to lay the facts before them in person. The point is just this: now that a new council has been elected with-an industrial policy one of the main is- sues, the ratepayers should uot .forget about it altogether, but should see to it that the new council does its duty, j and should aid it as much, as pos- sible in-carrying, it-out. TO THE newly-elected mayor tin Herald tenders. its cougratula tions. We 'have always >ndmit tcd'OIr.-'Hardle'fe the onlj score wo have bad against him was that of inexperience in the manage merit of civic affairs as compared with his rival, the outgoing mayor However, in this the new mayor will .have the chance of proving that a .capable man can override anything in the way of a handicap through inex- perience, and should he come out suc- cessfully we shall be the first to ren- .tfer him tbe commendation which he v.ili fittingly deserve. Once astride saddle, and having accustomed .himself to the gait of the civic steed, ;wn trust that the new mayor will -handle the reins to the satisfaction .of all. In everything pertaining to the welfare of the city he can feel sure of 'the Herald's hearty, support. We wish }ir. Hanlie a successful tenure of (Office. As to Mayor Hatch, his failure in re-elected was greatly due to the initial uncertainty as to his seek- ing a return to office, and to the Tact 'that he was somewhat late in taking an active part in the campaign. If he had been earlier in the Held probably .the result of the election might have been different. However, the number of votes polled" for him'is evidence that he was not altogether without the confidence of the electors, and that .his efforts for the progress of the city have not entirely escaped Appreciation and recognition. This will have some- thing in lessening the smarts of de- ieat. Bnt knowing llr. Haich as we I do, we do not think he will take the] Verdict seriously to heart. Ho has worked well and conscientiously for the development of ths city, and lie can i'eel assured that the progress Lethbridgo has "made will be placed to hip credit. At any rate, he has the consolation, which is some recom- pense, that the improve me nig effected in the city during his regime are tan- gible tokens of an administration which has brought Lethbridge to the front line among the up-to-date cities Of the west. In supporting Mayor Hatch the Herald had in view what he ami the council of had done frjf the city. Hut we are content that tlic voice of the people should prevail. In the aldermen elected the Herald has the satisfaction of knowing that they men who tliruugliuui iht Bon Voyage campaign have commended them- selves to it. The people have made a choice, ami, if .with'.the capability-displayed in rieal- ingMvithXH a suffic- ient earnest of'what is to-come the city has' cause for congratulating itself on" the selection it has made. The industrial policy of Mr. 31 c- Cambly has .fully appealed to us. as it has done 'to the electors, and the men .elected with him are the right stamp to aid him in bringing the same to effect.- With such men on the council board Lctbbridge can indeed be hopeful, and its citizens can look, forward without doubt to their "cityj occupying that position in the indu trial -world which they rightly claii for it. The three new aldermen will mak solid ballast in tbe counci They are progressive and level-neat ed, and their opinion will be of muc service" in the-'deliberations of th civic board. Aid. Aird has worthil; nerited re-election, and his re tun iroves that the ratepayers have valu ed-'whatever service he has renders iienil It likewise" shows that th1 onncil-of hag not been altogethe .iscredited. Nor -is the Herald disappointed ii thf men whom the ratepayers havi elected to represent them on ihi school board. -There were one or other-good-men in the field, and the discrimination to be made was con sequently not altogether too easy, bu over the results uf the voting no out will quarrel. To those who have failed in theii aspirations the people of Lethbridst will have no unkindly regard. In com ing forward as candidates they were nctuated by ihe best of motives. Thej did what the best of citizens can do In voluntarily offering their time, and whatever abilities they possessed, for the progress and development of the city. In this they have exhibited the best traits of citizenship. They have fought a pood fighi, anil will not meet defeat with any embittered feelings. The now civic ship has been now manned, and is ready to be launched on New Year's day. Three of the crew still remain on board to offer the advice which has come from exper- ience. This if lining with the wel- fare of the city, and temHnB to its up- building, the new men are sufficiently large-minded not to disdain. To the and his crew we wish bon voyage.
