To the Editor Lethbridge Herald: Dear a fortnight ago there appeared in the Herald an ar- ticle under the -heading, "Mayor Ad- ams' Position which pur- ported to -be'a statement of the May- or's opinions and -policy on the social evil problem as we have it in Leth- toridge. The public may .take it for granted that the article referred to is fairly accurate in its definition of the Mayor's position, inasmuch as no con- tradiction or correction of any of its statements has been made Toy that gentleman, since they trere first given :o the press. Besides the article bears some of the ear-marks of careful preparation. For one, your correspondent' is heartily glad that the Mayor has pot himself on record-in this way. it s a good beginning towards getting out upon open ground, away from the brush of "mingled fact and t also furnished a fair field to all Comers in which to array their argu- ments and engage in a frank and de- ent discussion of the problem involv- -d. I am aware that .the Mayor de- precates discussion of this question the press, for reasons given, and apparently reproves those -who think otherwise. But in the opinion many reputable citizens of Leth- it is no time to lay our hands upon our mouths wihen our whole moral sense revolts against the pub- lic indecency of a segregated district with, tolerated and regulated vice; little children, whose only fault is that they were born into poor fam- ilies, who have no pull with the pow- ers that be, must live in -daily hearing and seeing of this state of affairs: and when we, as a city, provide a con- venient and terrible death trap for :he weak and nnwary. It is too-iate to cry hush, when the public -con- science is being aroused and when _ ucsttLumg to ieei strong- ly that these things ought not so to be. The time to have anticipated Public discussion, and to have consid- ered' its consequences was when th. policy, which Mayor Adams approve and, of which he and some other must bear the glory or the sftame was inaugurated. Again., when waite, upon by a deputation .of representa tive and tolerably intelligent citizens whose views were presented not un kindly and somewhat reasonably, and were rejected with scant courtesy -by -the majority of the 'Council, -the May or and 'those aldermen who agree with him lost another -splendid oppor tunity to consider the inevitable is- sue of their action in public discus- sion which they one and all abhor. If my information is correct, the whole arrangement now existing was effected rather quietly no record of the City Council's proceedings in this connection appeared in utes. Upon this "action, let me say without any intention of being offen- sive, that no up to date ibody of men handling public .business and ewn slightly -acquainted with the trend of social and moral movements through- out the civilized Trorld, ought to ex- Pect sach a policy to go unchallenged. The Mayor appeals to the verdict of the ballot next December. Well and good; so do I, and not to of nest December only, ,but of every succeeding December until -this ques- tion is settled right and settled for- ever. But how will public opinion be guided and moulded to an intelligent and conscientious expression of itself at the polls except by fearless and thorough discussion? If the -method of discussion which some of us are pursuing and are likely to pursue somewhat further, is ill-advised, will the Mayor kindly point out the more excellent way? Mr. Editor, this letter has already trespassed sufficiently upon your val- uable space. It is only preparatory to a further and closer grappling with Oils issue, which so seriously affects moral well-being of our city. With your kind permission, I shall continue discussion of this question in the columns of the Herald from time to time, as the many demands of a rather -busy life may give me oppor- tunity.
