INWARING RETURNS E o- Four weeks from today voting on the mucJcipal elections takes place, but from the Interest so far displayed one would think it was to be one year from today. Less mention is made of the coming campaign than over before in recent years, and this, in aplte of the fact that during the whole ^summer; there has' been more crltlciera of the aldormaiiic boow;iircseats'itself'. ' . Mayor nJatch has not given lip'ills Intention to stand for re-election for mayor." Seen by the Herald this morning he stated tliaf he had not thought of calling u meeting of the ratepayers to cKscuss the year's work. This will be left to the electors themselves, and if such a meeting is a-sic-cd for it w\'ll be held between nomination and olection. The other two mayoralty cand-id-ates, W. U. L. Hardle and .los. Oillea-pio have not yet started active canvassing. They are both out on a straight commission form of government platform. While It was stated last week that ox-Chief Gillespie had dcHutely dtycided to run there still seems to he some doubt in the minds of the majority of the ratepayers as to his actual hitentlouH. He is still vliilting British Columbia and the mat-tor will -not be cleared up until ho returns. However, lila friends state that he is deilnitcly In the field, and as he has cleared the way for his municipal venture by striking out the name of the city in his d^image suit In counection with the police investigation, it. is believed that ,there Is little doubt about tho mayoralty campaign being a three-cornered light.

It aims to abolieh'the bonusing of Industries relieving'fhe ratepayers of a great burden of ta>catlon which history haa shown inevitably falls on them as a result of bounslng, It does not prevent tlie cities from putting forth every effort to dnduoo industries to locate at'those centres, but it does aim to prevent givJng away rights and privileges vyhpleaalo us has been tho case of some wegtorn cities.
