That would however be decided at the polls. In answer to a question he stated that the polls this year would be open from eight till five, the hours set forth In the city charter.

The presence of Mayor Hatch he meeting was rather a surprise, b e said ho came to place his vie squarely before the meeting, and justify himself iu some measure the face of criticism which be thoug was not due him. He came in for b fair share of heckling and had a ve busy half hour after he had fluishe his address. .Matters of general interest wet discussed in u general way. Thing looked stormy at times 'when th police tangle was .broached, and was plain that ex-Chief Gillespie wi have some ardent supporters in th coming election. However, on th whole everything passed off peace fully, and the ratepayers of the Duff Addition are to be congratulated their enterprise in taking up the municipal questions of the day i- open meeting, thus helping to get th lads fairly and squarely before the electors. Should Organize One strange thing which impressed itself on those not directly connected with the affairs of the Duff Addition was tlmt no attempt was made to or- ganize a Duff Addition Ratepayers' association, although the North Letb- 'ridge institution was spoken of In most favorable terms. It Is under- stood, however, that steps will be taken at the next meeting to organize on a proper basis. W. Scott was elected to the chair on the meciing being called to order He stated that it was thc object of Ihc meeting to nominate a straight- forward and honest mnn to represent fl'-m on the council so that they might get their fair share of the good' thing' might be going. However he understood that there were several aldernianic candidates present and an opportunity would given to all to air their views, Arthur Hayr. being the first man in the held, was the lira! lo speak He prefaced his remarks by stating lhat he did not care to make rash prom ises However, be was salisaed to leave it to the to decide If they thought his past record man was sulTlcicnt to satisfy them thai he was capable of looking Tier their interests on the council loartl, he would bo pleased to receive hen- support on election day. As for (he commission form of government, be did not. see he had any ,-lghl to make any promises in that regard Ihe people were ,o have an opporlnn- motion for only by that system could the best results be obtained, and the men be satisfied with their lot. The lack of organization had been respon. and while be did not. think there was graft, it did not apnear to him to be the proper method of handling things. In closing he said that if he did de- cide to enter the race he would appeal to them on the grounds of the most economic possible administration fo next year. Louis Keel made it plain from tl irst that he had no brief as eounse or the defence of tbe present cits administration, but be did believe hat they had done very well, am deserved more praise.than criticism Ic believed they had made mistakes ut had given of their time and en rgy unstintiugly, and had advanced be city at a very rapid rate. He was i favor of a policy of construction, nd believed the city would have 'to lend still more money to justify hat they have already spent; that they would have to create revenue their utilities, and the only way ley could do this I? by going stlfl rther in development. He was not ithusinstic over commission form of ovornment city is small yet, and be thought the populatio hardly large enough. However, th remained for the ratepayers to, for themselves. He was in favor o the Insertion of the fair wage clans in all city contracts. Mayor Explains His Extravagance Thc mayor was in good tajking hi mor. He did not say all wonted t but he did endeavor to clear u the Impression lhat be ivas verv c> travagant. and confined himself hat matter almost entirely. He di not touch on the police question mor than to give it. passing mention. How ever, he showed lhat he was blamed allowed to vote this year. The mayor informed him that the charter did not so provide. The questioner stated that that matter had been fought out In Edmonton and that a new law passed by the provincial legislature last winter provided for (be enfran- chlsement or tenants. The mayor answered that tbe city solicitor here ruled otherwise, but if the tenants wished to fight It out here he would bo willing to pool the expenses with them and pay ten dollars of the ex penses ot tbe court proceedings. Calls Mayor Real Estate "Shark Then followed a long criticism of -Mayor Hatch from that champion of the labor classes, Mr. Peebles, owner of the Union bakery. This gentleman spared no words in his denunciation of the administration of Mayor Hatch and the 1912 council, and called them contracts did not receive more than daily. He caustically informed the present incumbent of the mayor- alty chair that "it was not the real estate sharks 'who had built up Loth- bridge, but the labor people." Cries of "order" greeted thU ,u- mark and it looked for a time as if pandemonium had broke loose. Thera several real estate agents in the audience, and tbe remark was not to their liking. The speaker was into a corner by Jlr. Black- burn and L. Asqulth and forced to break ground by stating that it was some "phraseology" which he had learned at college." It. was very in- teresting for a few moments and the audience enjoyed the diversion im mcnsely. toother Satisfied Purchaser Dominion Square Made in one month READ High E.iver, Nov: 4th., 1912.

The work thrust upon him iu taking office was to carry out the plans of the preccd ing councils, and be hoped he bad done that with a certain amount, credit. On the last day of the old year the council passed contracts amounting to over half a million dol lars. Ho then became responsible for tire carrying out of that work to ob- tain the most for tho citizens, and be would leave it to anyone lo look about the city today if he bad not been fairly successful in bringing U H. Fowler, also aspiring for ;cat on the aldernianic council, said le was not in a position to say much mt would glad to address them at a later meeting when he would ad- vance his views as to the needs of Lethbridge. Not so Black as They're Painted Dr. Lorcring closed thc speaking program by a speech which will win him some votes In the Duff Addition if ho decides to enter the field. How. ever, ho advised the ratepayers to decide on their next council by taking cognizance of the man and uot his latform. It Is easy to make promises ho said, but harder to keep them. It is also easy to criticize but that does not help in administering affairs to be best advantage, lie said the council had spent a lot. of money but ic .believed he had done it honestly. fly of telling the council esactlv what! a completion.

The only -oublo was that he hail been too easy nd had allowed things to slide f hc were now in the same hc would check with a strong hand.
