Says Re-adjustment Was Good Business-Depart- ment Flourishing To the Editor In response .to your request for a statement I beg to say tl'.e transaction cancelling my contract with the city, was good business. In my address before the Ad club last Tuesday night, I emphasized the fact tbat in the wake of .business depression, and in the development of a new country, readjustments Aire pften. required; that it is good business to face suolt situation, manfully and promptly, that it is often wise to write oft losses, to calculate shrinks, to reform, the lines and start again. In our transaction of Thursday afternoon, the Commissioners and mvself merelj a tood example along such lines. A year ago it appeared that an engagement for three vears was the__ propei eonception ot our undertaking From my standpoint at that time, the engagement'would have been Impos- sible otherwise.

SufJ fice it to say 1 am proud of our a6- compllshments and Uiat I am confi- dent of continuing valuable the city. Lothbridge Is a good place to'liva .n. The living conditions are ot first class. The location is commanding, vernment is progressive, high-toned, economical and trust-, t worthy. T.he Board of Trade is .well led and pursuing rational and up-to- date policies. I believe the city" has a great future, and f have .the same vision for the- Province of Alberta, and the Dominion of Canada. The :ork which this .department has done; for Lethbrldse'has been that of an expert. The relation of the city to the the 'provincial and do- minion governments, and the sur- rounding community, ihas been pretty thoroughly surveyed and working plans with regard to each have been formulated. The commercial and In- dustrial possibilities of the locality, have been pretty, well comprehended, and described. By ..means of. most In; but widespread publicity, the advantages of :the city have been made known. The great work re- malning. in my opinion, is that, the city may realize itself.. An expert is not needed for this stage. He might help some, but the aftpr a'l, must build the city.
