ASKS ALD. ADAMS TO SPEAK Editor of the Herald noticed in Tuesday's issue of the Lelhbridge Herald, with a great deal of pleasure Mayor Hender- son's recommendations. He has done all that his most ardent supporters could wish, excepting one thine, viz.: the acceptation of another year in the mayor's chair to carry out, or at least partly carry out, his recom- mendation of "a Boajd of Control.- However, he has been very emphatic in letting his friends, both publicly and privately, know that he feels that he has had enough of the honors and the duties, -especially the duties, that go with the office. This being the case so far as the present mayor is concerned, the writ- er would like to ask if Mr. Adams. who has signified his willingness to J run for will make a state-1 ment as to his position on the sub-j ject of a "Board of and I the abolition of the Council. j Yours very I W.

I In clectinK the Board for the first. time I suggest that the mem-; bers be given terms of different the shortest .not to be less r than two years, and members to be elected to the vacancies as they oc- cur. I would also suggest that the pow- ers of referendum and recall be secur- ed as a safeguard of the publicjnter- ests, as we would then have a string on each member whereby we could haul him back again if he did not suit. This letter is much longer than I intended, but in view of the import- ance of the matter under discussion I trust it is not too long for inser- tion, and would much like the matter discussed as fully as possible by oth- ers.

It strikes me that ,we have alreadv had one year of his form of commis- j and I, for one, am not in favor of its continuation in office for an- other year. Some form of a paid Commission doubt, be neces- sary for our city in the near future. But I say let us be delivered from the present one. Re the Smith street spur. I am fulh- satisfied that this matter, as far as Mayor Henderson has been able to control it, is already settled. The preliminary.plans, etc., have al- ready been: submitted to a few. At the present spur was being applied for -the late M. vigor- ously objected. If. the majority oi the'property owners on Round street and the down-town business district- are satisfied to tinese traces at their'back doors I can. see no vscood reason why .they should have their own way. Another point in its favor is that it will be of consider- able benefit to Mayor Henderson's property on Smith street. Re the subway. I think the sub- way should be placed where -it will be the most good to the City of Lethbridge as a whole. This, in mv opinion, is Westminster Road. At the same time some temporary arrange- ments should be made to give the farmers across the river as easy ac- cess to the city, as possible. A pro- tected crossing at Gait street will this very well for another year or two. The subway on Westminster Road is going to be needed sooner than that .unless it really is the in- tention of -the business men of this city to completely isolate the north side. Again, ,the new bridge- being agitated for will bring, so I under- stand, the farmers into Lethbridge via" Westminster Road. .TAS. w. BOULTON.

The interior Angelus is just as com- plete and perfect in every detail as .when in separate form, containing all exclusive features that have made the Angelus phras- ing the melody buttons, the dia- phragm pmeurrhaties, the melodant., etc. The Goiirlay-Angelus Piano 'can be played by hand in'the usual manner by the trained musician whenever de- sired.

Now, -these two terms are not synonymous by anv means, though I am not at present in a position to enlarge upon the pre- cise -differences, though, if mv mem- ory does not play rne false, the mat- ter practically simmers down to this: a Board of Control is elected by the people by popular balJot, whereas a Commission is appointed by the coun- public, (poor, of burden-bear- ments of the old parties.

Milburn Co., .Limited, Toronto, Ott. long-suffering bunch has absolutely no say in the matter. Now, instead of a Commission, as the Herald suggests, or even a Board of Control, as suggested bv Mayor Henderson, I would suggest that a [Council be elected as usual, but for j legislative purposes only, and that a i Board of Cont-rol be also elected to take complete control oi all depart- ments. This Board might consist o[ say three men, one of whom would be a chief over the public works, such as streets, sidewalks, parks, sewers, etc., another to have charge oi the watenvorks, 'electric light and power kindred matters, while the third would have oversight of the police and fire departments, etc. Thc above is, I consider, a tion far more worthy thc ratepayers' j consideration than the one submitted j hv Mayor Henderson. The Council being for legislative use only, much time, worry, and ex- would bc saved in that bodv and thc Board members could be eas- three to five thousand dollars per year each, and1 the extra quality of brain power and thc cttra time de- voted to thc city's financial affairs in this way would far more than com- pensate for the-salaries would, in Book Cases, in the plain oak and quartered in golden and Early English finish.
