D. L. Hurd-io, mayor of Lethbrldge, to the Union ot Canadian municipalities this niorn-_ ins, at Its opening session. "These bodies are closer to the people and represent more itviy than any other gov-ernmen" tho calibre of the citizens who make up tho population ot^ a great state." � These remarks w.ere made In connection with the presidential .address to the delegates, when they commenced the sessions of the convention. Mr. .llardle we'nt. on to say: "It we tenpotirage earnest, capable men and women and overlook their minor mistakes there will be no question of drawing the very best men in any community Into civic life. There is, however, one viewpoint, which I must present with' all the force I am able. It is lack ot continuity In office and confcequently the lack_ot direct res-Donslbillty la municipal government. Wo have patterned our form of civic government on that In effect in Great Britain, but we have not followed It to it� logical, conclusion by having well vemed and capable permanent civic officlalB." The pivxldent pursued this argument by pointing out what steps had been taken to , dontfpl municipalities In Oroai Britain ami to direct them along proper lines and pointed out that tho public utility commtsBlons of this country were a beginning of tlie same principle, but unfortunately the policy had not been to-select o.Tporlcncod municipal men, hut the persons chosen tor political conBlderations. Mayor Oray, of New WestmlDBter, extended the welcome, and Hon. Wilfrid Onrlopy, minister of municipal affairs foi* Alberta replied.
