Bowman in the mayoralty ' contest. Ho hits been in the service | of the city for many years and was ( thoroughly acquainted with inunicip-1 Hi conditions. As n matter of fact , tins long period of association with the city affairs had considerable to i do with his d�'f�'iit. In niakiit^ thai statement we mean that a man who has been in tin- limelight (� >r year.; , cannot help but make enemies, even ' in doing what is right and that is what Charles Bowniin always did Then again, his association with th" Klectrie Light ('. wi.� used ap,>in.u liim pretty strongly. But when all is said and done it im'*t be niliiiitteil that his defeat is a 1"�.* '�> mir municipal life and the 11 "raid sineevely �Impes that the day will yet cone when he will till tin- Mnym'� chair As for Win.

In connection with lh" improvements to o.:r roadways and sidewalks-and they are badly needed-he will be exceptionally well >plalili,-d to keep an cnple eye mi thing* and see that the city pets a sipiniv deal, us he has IihiI experience in thi* line He is a heavy property own. i and will be anxious to po oa.;y in cxpcmli-ture durinp the stringency and keep down taxation. Still Lothbridge must ndvance duriim the culiine year. Its .streets and walk* imist be improved, its flr- service should be put on a b-'tter basis, and in many speets there is work to - will, for we huv- alway* found him to be a man of his word. We want a clean. respectable city. The Herald can be counten mi t.. civ,-Mr. Henderson's, iidministr'iliou loyal support as Ions as the |.....pie's in- teresU are not jeopardized, but mice they lire we will pel on the warpath. Never in tbc history of Ijctlibridpo was as much interest taken in mini-Iclpul elections as that of this year. This w'ns pariIcuhirl.v the case in the mayoralty contest. The contestants were two old timers of the city, Charles 11. Bowman and William lien telephones, demon. The latter hint n splendid organization and that accounts large ly for liis hip majority. Mr. Bowman diil not S'.vni to have any organization at his hack and his frienils iutoiiii! his defeat to that cause.
