BRINp YOUR RADIATOR TO Andy's Radiator Repair Station BEHIND DALLAS HOTEL sorvleo to Ihe city, he hail never yot hcnii ou the pay roll, llu thought that the prlnnlpal aim of the city at tho i prifent lime ahould he to save money. � lie said lhal if elecled it was not his i purposo to I'lit down evniylhiiig at Die I Ity hall, he was not for a ruinous economy, but he believed there wore many places where mont'v could be saved to good advantagi!, Mr. Meecli, he declared, had been a good servant of the people for many ynars, and if elected would make a good conitiiiwrtioner. but he tluiuglil Hial wlieii the c'lty was going through a period of dhi)rcssiou and it is hard to linance the elty, any .s.-ivlng thai could 1)0 effected nbould be well (.'onsidered by the peojile. lie liad not consulteri anyone about his candidature, anil as for working foi- nolliiiig, llieie are mil-liouK or men In the world today who ure serving tlieir connlrie.s oi' com-mimllles lor nothing or almoKi that. He advlseii tlii! people of North I,eth-bridge, no matter who might be elected, to form a ratepayers association so that lliey could make tlHimsieves fell. Commission governmen". was not as close to the people as he would like to see it.- That was one olijei'-tiou to it which would have to be overcome. Mr. Meech Mr. :\Ieech in opening said lie hoiied lo l)e able to show that with his salary he would not be; any more expensive tlian Mr. Oliver. He then wont into his campaign siieech which was published in the Herald in full last Friday, dealing with his (lualificalions and experience whicli would fit lilm for the i)03llon. lie also gave the planks of his platform which are pub-isheil elsewhere in this Ikkuo, dealing witli tho water nrobleni, the streets maintenance problem, the question repairing public worlis at the iirojier time 10 make them last out Ihe life of the bonds, and the question of greater publicity to the doings of the eonncil wliich he thought was one of tho chief faults of commission government as at present constituted, lie also urged that the data in tho engineering department be brought up to date. The Utilities Dealing with the utilities, he thought every utility so far as possible should stand on Its own feet. He showed that the waterworks dopart-, meut here is paying only five cents I per thousand tor the water pumped, whereas tho city of Kdmonton, where the head is the same, pays seven cents. Dealing with Mr. Diver's platform, he said that most of the mayors of tho city had left some monument to show for their term in office but he could not find ?,lr. Oliver's. Mr. Oliver later declared tliat while lie was in charge of the city, tlie first waterworks system designed for a city of ."jOOn had been built, and he .lidn't think a better system had ever been liuilt anywhere. The city has had tine water, but of course the population outgrew the system. Not Always In Harmony Dealing with Mr. Oliver's statement that he woiild work in harmony with the other commissioners, Mr. Meech declared that lie would never make such a statement. Ho would work in harmony with the other commissioners so long as they did what lie believed was right. But they had no strings on him. No one in Lethbridge had any strings on him. It was being said that he was the mayor's candidate in Ibis campaign, but neither Slayor Hardie nor auyono else had any string on him. If elected ho would be tree and untrammelled. He thought the Herald should not talk of free service. The Herald is trying to get at the other commissioners by knocking him, but it he hart been a commissioner and had had a chance to vote for a lower rate for the tax sale advertising he would have done so. Mr. Meech thought a certain amount of money should he spent in North Lethbridge. That wasn't a vote catcher. but tho candidate thought that the street and survey tangle in that part of the city should be straightened out.
