Commenting on civic expenditure iMr. Alexander thought this should only be incurred where actually He also thought the street railway depart- ment ought to study the needs of North Ward more in future and also favored catering.-to. the( requirements of Stafford village. The candidate believed in encouraging aquatic sports. Street crossings were also much needed and in tills connection Mr. Alexander thought the present council were largely responsible for failure to attend to ibis. Personally Mr. Alexander was of the opinion that, the segregated area should be wiped out of the city- and that the people should deckle this by vote. John Gilmore said that he consider- ed the aldermen during the past year had no) done their duty. The com- mission form of government was then discussed by Mr. Gilmore, who ex- plained the various workings of the commission form .of government. Mr. Gilmore said the council of two years ago did not carry out the wishes of the people on commission form of government. It di-d not matter what his views were as it was the peoples'.wishes he had to consider. Public Improvements Mr. Gilmore said if elected lie would cut down the imoiic expenditure to absolute necessities. One necessity was the nest ion of street railway facilities hi the North Ward. When a public utility is paying its way it is not a charge and expenditure along this line would consequently be war- ranted. The question of a subway at ;ith street, would also have his en- dorsation as this was indispensable. Tho snbwny was required as soon as it conl-d be got. Industrial Policy Touch on iho industiial policy [if tho cliy Mr. Gilmore spoke of the iK'misiujr system and said that if a company with a large pay roll 'want- ed to Iccatfi here it was up to the city to estimate the benefit which would result ami put OM question to ratepayers for approval. What rity wants is industries. Mr. Gil- more- thought tho Hoard of Trade had DONALD McNABB spent too much money in endeavoring to get industries and he thought the city was better able to look after this.

Regarding the social evil Mr. Gil- more said this was a question for the chief of police. It was for the citi- zens to back up the "chief of .police in aiming to make LcUibridye a clean city. Mr. Gilmore did not think any alderman should have anything to do with the red light district, as accord- Ing to reports Mr. Gilmore thought there was evidence that such was the case. Socialist Speaker James Barclay was not ashamed of the fact that he was a Socialist. He denounced roundly everything the city council and mayor had done during past year and expressed the opin- ion that the civic authorities hatl proved clearly that they possessed no brain power. "Don't said Mr'. Barclay, who thereafter spoke of the many 'wooden things the council bad done its administration of the af- fairs of the city. Barclay also iiad grievances against the press. He had no use for 'Mayor Hatch and pro- ceeded to criticise .that olh'cial in a humorous strain which amused crowd immensely. As a critic Mr. Barclay excelled himself. "'Donald McNabb Speaks Donald .McNabb was glad to note the interest manifested by the rate payers in the municipal elections, was strongly of the opinion that the ratepayers were getting all that was coming to them. It was no fault of the mayor and council that the pres- ent condition of affairs existed. Un- doubtedly there had been much im- provements made in the city but the ratepayers had been so'dense as to elect tlie council and there 'was no one to 'blame but those who have put the civic fathers in their present po- sition. Mr. McNabb discussed the municipal question from a common sense standpoint and criticized the business men of the city for their obvious laxity in watching the peuditnre of the publics' money. He hoped the ratepayers would become more alive than they had been in the past. He thought the street railway ought to bo extended further in the North Ward in the direction of the Royal Collcries. which would pull (he business to the CPU t re of the city. Mr. McNabb did not mvor nojnmg the council niotitnigs during the day as thig debarred the workingman from taking an active in the city's af- fairs. Mr. McNabb 'was not like his friend Mr. Hardey, who had griev- ances against (lie newspapers. Per- sonally Mr. MirXabb had always got a square deal from the newspapers and ho did not think any man who was so ihin skinned should be iu pub- lic life. "Take your said -Mr. 'McNabb, also referred to the segregated question. Change your en- vironment and then you will have a different ohikl. More should be done for the female and (ben you'll remedy the red light evil, Tlic wages paid lo girls and women are not sufficient to keep -body and soul together. Not even Tfinolhy Knton helps matters along. Undfir thn present conditions Mr. McNabb thought segregation was the best systf-m. Change the condi- tions and yon will have the solution. Mr. McNabb's remarks were warmly received. Tlie select ion of a candidate for lira school board ;vna left over until the next meelfng.
