STRONGLY CONDEMNED O- Mr. Manwaring Goes to Regina Convention as an Instructed Dele- gate the resolution unanimously, and Mr. .Manwarlnff goes as an instructed do- legato, a duty which contains a largo element of pleasure, for the policy adopted Incorporates to a nicety tlie l-oraoiiat views of the energetic secre- tary. Tho crux of lire opposition at first shown to the motion was thai other by D. H, Elton; second- ed by John Taylor, and Resolved, that the Lethbridge Board of Trade Is of the opinion that the system of granting mon- ey, or land, or bonuses of any na- ture to, or the'guaranteeing of bonds of corporations, firms or in- dividuals in consideration of their establishing or operating factor- ies, businesses or Industries in Western Canada, is not in the best Interests of Western Canada and should be, if possible, discontin- ued; further, That the government of the pro- vince of Alberta be petitioned to enact such laws as will reduce this evil to a minimum, and be asked to make representation to the governments of the Provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia to the end that similar legislation be enacted in the Provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia. 'Phe above is in the form o[ a reso- lution the policy of the executive tlic Lethbridge Board of Trade on tlie troublesome and perplexing policy of industries. H is the policy which J. L. aiaTiwnring will fight Cor at the conv-ontion of municipalities at Regina for which city he left this afternoon. Perplexing and trouble- some are 'words used advisedly in describing the problem, for cities differ and even members of the Board of Trade hold varying views, as was evidenced In the discussion last night. But while there were varying views it all ended in the carrying of NO CANDIDATES FOR MAYORALTY SOME ONE WILL HAVE TO COAXED TO SERVE IN RAYMOND Uavmoml, Nov. 7. New luol has had the effect of causing thu miiiH'-i- ual pot to lioil till it has boiled over. The item appearing in last week's Lea- der and copied in the, Uaymond news to the Herald has brought forth ana- cities do so and so, and if Liuhbi not do so there would b< sivakintr tn see other cities fin- ir '-ad. There were others who hold! Ulcmas on "L'att lts ?u-tnf- has generally revived municipal mat- ters A'lilch for a few weeks had been that cities sometimes pay too oxpen- slvly for what they get and the loss in revenues through po'wer, water, and light furnished at a loss, and freedom from taxation frequently more than offsets the benefits through added population and the wage bill. it wag thought, however, that if the government could be induced to have a law passed making it illegal for any municipality to grant these in- ducements to industries all places would bo on an equal footing in that and the factories would be located where the conditions host warranted the establishment of an in- dustry. At the first meeting of the western municipalities there was bit- ter opposition to the proposal to have the bonusing system made illegal and Ihu convention adjourned without ac- tion being taken. Tho meeting at Regina is therefore an adjourned meeting, and it is expected that there will -be a large representation from western cities and towns. The move to have provincial laws passed adds to the interest and the forces l Hue up at Regina in what will likely tbe a determining struggle. Lcthhridge was not represented at thu first meeting held? at Mooso Jaw, but at liegina Mr, Manwaring will be present armed, with the instruction to fight bonuses and to present the reso- lution passed by the executive. Those present at last night's meet- ing were: Messrs. Cunningham. Staf- ford. Ccnybeare, McArthur, Turney, Taylor, Elton, Raflon-Canning, Broad and Secretary Manwaring.

The Herald's Kaymoud rcpix'sciitative has made it his busi- ness to personally interview all those whose names have hccii mentioned in tlie mayor's chair summary of their connection with next year, and views follows Not Mayor The mayor, J. Evans, was thu first prospective candidate spoken to, but he emphatically denied that he had any desire or inclination to serve another term. The Interviewer impressed upon this year's chiei mag- istrate that it is the wish of many of Raymond's electors that he should serve another term, but he was firm in his decision and asked tbe Herald to say for him that he would not stand for re-election. Mr. Evans1 re- fusal to allow his name brought for- ward is not because of any trouble encountered at the council board this year. Everything has gone smoothly and tho mayor is well pleased with tho support he has received. But he believes that the honor should go around, and has therefore given his final answer that he, at least, is not a candidate. Nor T. 0- King T. 0- King when called up by tele- phone from the Herald's Raymond of- fice was wrathy that his name should have hcen published as a pos- sible candidate without bis permis- sion. "State for he said, "that, if proposed, I will emphatically de- cline the nomination. I will not be a candidate, nor will 1 accept elec- tion by acclamation." In these words Mr. King showed exactly where he stood. 'Asked his reasons, Mr. King said that he was a farmer and out of town a great dual.

A. -Morrison, of the Northwest Mount ed Police detachment at Magrath, -was in toWn this week looking for a, build iug and stable, which could bc used for n policeman's quarters here. I is tho intention of the department to move the jUagrath detachment to Ray mond, because Raymond is more oen tral and. offers better facilities for patrol 'work. The officer stationet here will have the district from Spring Coulee almost to Lethbridge, anc from the homestead country east of Stirling and New Dayton. The Mcln tyre lease will also 'he included in this district. Options taken on sev- eral buildings, but it is quite :proba. ble that tbe Card 'barn will be usec for stabling. The presence of an of- ficer here will somewhat relieve Mar- shal Harris, of. some of the work he s frequently called upon to do outside of his own town. Three Meetings a Month for Raymond Teachers Raymond teachers of the Public school staff met for mutual improve- ment in their regular monthly gather- ing on ijMonday last, and at the meet- ing, the principal, B. -H.-Smith, gave a talk on penmanship. The speaker is himself a penman of some note, and his suggestions were carefully listen. ed to. In'tlie discussion fol- lowed afterward, it was decided to hold three meetings in the month, in- stead of one. On the first Monday of that Mayor Evans should be con strained to si ami for re-election. You'll not get a butter suitl Mr. King.
