Fleetwood Honored by School Trustees FIRST MEETING OF NEW BOARD Contractors Must Clean Up Central School Grounds. J. H. Pie.etwood is thcs new chairman of the school board. He was chosen at thf; tirst meeting of the new board, on Friday night. Chairman 'Fleeiwood has been a resident of Lothbridge since and for six yeais has been a faith- ful and energetic trustee and there is no question but that he will make a capable and progressive chairman. The trustees present at the meet- ing were Messrs. G. H. Johnston, Dr. Galbrailh, "Dooley, Nimmons and Fieetwood. The standing committees for the year were chosen as follows: Dooley and Cralbraith. Johnston and Will Amount to More than He Expected. From the Raymond Chronicle The Chronicle has hitherto main- tained silence respecting the con- dition of the town books for the reason that its editor was Mr. Matheson's official successor. The hampering condition no longer exists and the editor of the paper feels at liberty to speak. It is a fact unfortunately that a shortage exists, the exact amount atvprosent not being terminable, that it is much greater than the ex-secretary- treasurer himself believes possible is also true. In a communication sent to the council Mr. Matheson requested that certain amount? due him from residents of the town be applied on the he ap- parently being of the opinion that i hey would materially reduce .the amount unaccounted for, when, as i matter of fact, the aggregate of he obligations due him would be jut a small proportion of the short- age, which leads to the conclusion that he himself does not know CARDSTON WINS Decision Given in Action for Damages.

The financial statement showed the receipts to include from from taxes, government rant: from other sources. The principal items or expendi- ture were teachers' salaries, 07: building and repairs and luel supplies. It was tlecided to record in the minutes the opening of the West minster school. Smith Bros. Wilson's account for 8950. contract on Westminster school, was ordered to be paid. The trustees strongly objected to the condition in which the grounds of the central school had been left, and passed u resolution to the eiTect that dirt at this school .be..removed wi.thin tliree. .days .by the contractors and if! this was not done the board would have the .work done and charge the con- tractors with the expense. C. B. Uowman was re-appointed secretary treasurer at a salary of 8200 per year, TTui regular ir-ec-ting night cf the board was made the last Mon- dav night in each month. vhat the shortage really is. Mr. Mathesou was bonded by a Canadian Guarantee -Company, so that. the town is fully protected igainst loss, the bond being for while the estimated defal- cation is about S2GGO. The associated press correspond- ent has gone out of his way to further and uselessly besmirch the character in charging that he threw a bail game while he was manuger of. the Raymoujd team While this statement is not whollj a lie it expresses the michievou intent and carries the Blighting effect aimed at by the man who sent it out. If he had desired h could have learned the facts which are these: There was a ball game by the team, but it was against Mr. Matheson's fruitless protest, and he was forced either to publish what was intended and so army his town team against him or per- mit himself to be overruled which. unfortunately, is what he did. While Mi. Mathesonwas a resident of this'community he poned himself as a gentleman, and there is no one here who isn't grieved at his unfortunate situ- ation. Frederick vs E. R.J.

The Herald man had a peek at the plans for the enlargement of the A. Macclonaid ifc Co. building, mentioned briefly in list week's Prom the Edmonton Bulletin. The sudden and unaccountable disappearance of .R. 0. Matheson, former editor of the Rayuond Chronicle, who arrived in the city about December 1st. has caused considerable comment in the city. On inquiry being made at the government offices hero it was learned that Mr. Matheson had been position in the edu-! cation department but had never entered upon his duties, and his sudden disappearance has puzzled the department. The officials havo no knowledge of his whereabouts and large quantities of his mail remains uncalled for in the postoffice.
