As a ratepayer of the ci^; I desire to state that my opinion and remarks, re the 'purchasing of the Grace Coal Mine by the, city. are. made/as i ace them. Apd ,it. 'seems by Mayor Hardie'B letter .that Klg idea, is to endeavor first all to try and make any person Who differs with hini on this flatter look small, with his own gobbling ideas, which in my opinion Is not borne out with good sound logic. In reference to' Mayor Hardie's theory of mining auolltlefe I have no idieelre to>.aiSpute�.th�m at-'all,' biit.^ theory from a mining ataudpOint don't generally get yery far: ' ; In reference to the coal markets which Mayor Hardie seems to know so much about, it was a wonder that Mayor Hardie was not In a better position to find a miarket for the coal that was Being produced at the Diamond City coal mine while he was manager there. And , according to the mayor's own statement at the North Lethbrldge ratepayers meeting last month, that was one of the reasons which prevonted the mine from operating. And I wiU adventure to say that the Diamond City mine did not produce any-more coal, than with a full force of labor they could produce at the Oraice, mlhe. M is ail very A well fbr Mayor Hardie in his own way to tell the ratepayers the market Is there. But let ,us look ibacktci the normal conditions of the coal trader only two or thre years ago, when labor was plentiful, you will find out that ihe mines in the lignite field would not average two days work per week, and nobody knows that any better: than Mayor Hardle.< I have no desire to go any further into the question of expense to oper ate the mine, that I believe was oov ered very fully by me in my letter of the 27th instant. But I have a desire to point out the fact that the CP. R. bridge is 307 feet high, which is a parallel of the height of the coulee bank at the Grace mine, and the Lethbrldge collieries shaft is about 600 feet (�eep to the coal, the same 'vein of coal as the Grace mine, and If that is not evidence enough to any mining man that the Grace mine is dipping towards the  river, 'W^U, ihea, 1 will allow Maypr ' Hardje: to "say thai I don't know wh^t 1' anjitialklrig ahout. .Why it is a well known fact that parts of^ the Grace mine have been flooded out for years, and a greater part of the 'mine, it was Impossibis to operate on account of the spring of the year, when the river is high. I desire to state that We have a city mine whether; It has corji the city $1,00Q or $1 mSices no difference, |t Is in my opinion what it is worth to the city at i present. . And in ray opinion if it has been developed on a good mining system, only'in its in-faircy. and should be furnish the city coal for power purposb^ for a good many years t(d come at a very little costj In regards to' Mayor Hardte's statement to a1)andon \\\ that, 'n my opinion may sound alright to him, it don't to me and as a ratepayer I believe that I have a right to my opinion. Whether it suits Mayor Hardie Is immaterial to me. In reference to the Grace mine re-p\irt which Mayor Hardie made, it sounds very nice uPon paper, and In theory I imagine it will go Just as far. But as a prabtioal miner I desire to I state, that during my .course of traVel I Tiave seen all Ttinds -"mine prospeotua'^upon paper, in fact, Bom^ot them Wou|d ,nearly make you belii^ve it were dollars coming^ out of the ;^ine instead of coal; It is only a feSv years ago that som^ of the Lethbrldge city offloials pictured in the ^ame, way . Uio, Btroet-,,railway, and sincei then, the ratepayers have found Who'a to BliihiB for the High Cost of Fobd? It may be the fanner, it may be the middleman^ it may be the weather-rbut never -inind-you have Shredded Wheat at the same old price, the same high quality, the one perfect; complete food, supplying more real nutriment than meat, or eggs, or vegetables, costing much less and more easily digested. Cut out the high-price foods. E&t Shredded Wheat for breakfast with milk or cr^am. Eat it for dinner with stewed fruits and green vegetables. A deliciously nojurishirig meal for only a few cents. Made in Canada. THE LETHBRIDGE' DAILY HEaiALi) IS? PAGE SEVEN out from experie'nee where they got off at. �   . � In ooneluslbn, allow me to state that In my opinion,- we have purchased enough "white elephants" for the benefit ot a privileged'few. . First-We bought automobiles for some of the city officials to go joyriding and they were, afterwards, In a very .short Olma discarded, of pretty near given away for jubk. Second-We built a street railway In order that the real estate boomers should got rich quick. Third-Nothwithstanding the fact, we have a city coal mine which will last for yeors. We are asked to buy another mine at a Good Big Fat Turnover to the present owner, in order that some of the city officials may experiment with it. If the majority of the ratepayers are satisfied it suits me. But if the ratepayers turn the proposition down I would suggest that as the chief executive of the city, and believing as he does; that we will resort back to a village that he advocate the abolition of the commission form of government, and by bo doing he will at least save the city $10,000 per year for commissioners' solarles, which means |240,000, in 20 years. Which, we as taxpayers know that wo will have to pay under.the.present form of government, and which we would save in reality. And I am~ satisfied if a referendum on this question Is submitted to the ratepayers, they will surely. Judging by oplnkpns expressed, help it along. I say arise as taxpayers "take off the yoke" and help to do something to relieve the burden. Yours for a greater village. , CHAS.
