The mayor did not consider the ver- dict of the plebiscite as being an over- whelming one, nor as being a mail- date. He was not stating this in a spirit of opposition to the managerial form of government but was willing to leave tha matter to the meeting. After some discussion Mr. Gilmore moved that Mr. Freeman's proposals be laid on the table and taken up for discussion clause by clause and passed. This led to 'Mr. Qreen saying that ha was present to consider only the change to nianacerial form of gov- ernment. He was not disposed to waste time by going into the merits, or otherwise, of the present system. I He wanted to hear all about mana- gerial form of government as a sub- stitute to the present one, not that he had any particular fault to find with the commission form of govern- managerial form, particularly .on the score of economy, would be -the more advisable form and this was the opin- ion of a large number of citizens.

Shortly after the close of the meeting the mayor asked to be excused, as he had. another en- gagement, and Mr. Ball was elected to the chair. With him was left the naming of a committee to go into the matter of a permanent stenographer.

The Lethbridge Northern Issue la the largest Canadian issue on the market this month" according to the Monetary Times just to hand. Mani- toba and Alberta are each floating ten year bonds but the big is- sue is the irrigation offering. The Monetary Times dealing with the issue says in part: Already there are several issues on the list for sale in January, the most important of which is Lethbridge Northern Irrigation offering. Bond dealers in Toronto do not appear to be very interested in the proposition. Irrigation bonds are a new kind of in- vestment to Canadian bond buyers. In ;he United States they were not held in very high repute, and it is feared :hat might adversely affect the sale ot the LethbrWge Northern la.it session, will croato a turn! equal to two years' interest, of which will he available for making up any .arrears on the part of tho rate- payers. This fund is to be perpetual during the lifetime of the loan, but it is limited at any time to tho amount indicated. Stringent action is provid-j oil for in case ot such defaults, byj which the government may proceed i against the landowners and recover jthe amount so paid by means of tax! sales of tho delinquent lands. Pro-! tection for the bondholder is therefore' amply afforded, but. the farmers in I the Lethbridge Northern district have no doubt about their boing able to meet all their obligations and having something to spare from the proceeds of the increased crops they may reas-. onably expect to harvest, when they have irrigation.. jonds. The amount of the bond issue is] placed at the figure na7ned in tho dis-l :rict This is the estimated cost of the project, plus a margin to carry it for a year or two.

Failed to See Shunting Train as It Backed Over the Crossing A level crossing and a side-curtain- ed car resulted in an accident at Nan- ton on Wednesday afternoon about two o'clock in which B. Koch, farm1 er of that district was seriously In: jured, being badly crushed about the chest. According to reports available here. Mr. Koch was-proceeding along the road leading to the crossing while a way freight was shunting cars. The trainman at the rear of the train wss In position and believed that the driv- er of the car had seen the freight and would stop. Evidently however, the driver didn't notice the train which was backing slowly over the crossing, and the brakeman immediately applied the brakes in an effort to avert an accident. The car was flopped with- in a ear length but it had gone far enough to cause the collision with the result that Mr. Koch was Injured.
