Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 TTTF. LKTHBRl'DCJE DAITA HKltALD November SO, To the Electors of the City of Lethbridge We arc a candidate for the ollice of Mayor of-our City because the citizens under tlu> most trying terms that.a plebiscite vote could be taken on throe distinct, occasions pro- nounced themselves, bv a large majority in favor of STRAIGHT 'Commission Govern- ment and because at the last two municipal elections practically every member of the Council was pledged to give the City commis- sion form of government at the earliest pos- sible moment. The present council practi- cally ignored the plebiscic and the individual pledges by only beginning to consider the ISTCw Charter at the last moment and then throwing up its hands on the psendo excuse that it did not know what the people wanted. We have the impression that this is only a ruse to sidetrack the question of Commission Gov- eminent. This is not a personal matter with us. We have no inurbane feeling towards anyone in connection and are only endeavoring to 'further the interest of the city as. we "see the necessity for a change in the System of City Government. We shall bo glad to meet and discuss our views with any ratepayer at his or her con- venience. The door of our home is open to all-at all times to anyone who wishes to see, us in respect to our platform or any other matter. stand for a Police Commission, as advocated by the city press, composed of the Mayor, the District Judge, and the Police Magistrate. stand for BOOSTING and are strongly opposed to BOOMING our city. stand for progressive, but economi- cal government. stand for a close scrutiny of all fin- ancial affairs and complete publicity in all accounting in all departments, independent- ly, and in relation to each other. stand for Commission Government as it is practically in effect today and giving splendid results in the city of DCS Mqines, la., with such few alterations as would better suit Lethbridge conditions. Briefly it is as follows: Three independent commissioners or superintendents elected .directly by the people, subject to the E.E- CALL. The three commissioners jointly, arc an advisory committee to each one of the three departments. For Legislative purposes the three commissioners automatically be- come a board of aldermen. All legislation is scibjct to the INITIATIVE and the EEFEK- ENDUM. Under these conditions the rate- payers have control all the time, whereas in the Aldcrmanic System the ratepayers have absolutely no say or control excepting on election day. Under this system we direct responsibility fixed on each Commissioner singly and on the three jointly, so that there can be no "craw-fishing" or shunting blame. Ff there is any virtue in the Aldcrmanic System, we retain enough of it to let these virtues have full sway. YOURS TKULT, W. D. L.

In doing so, I can sincerely assure you that it is not from a motive of the honor attached to the position but solely from a keen sense of public duty. In my humble opinion, I believe that our city has arrived at the part- ing of the ways. Therefore it behoves us to exercise great care in the choosing of our Al- dermen for the coming year. We want men who would go to the Council Chamber with open minds and without blinkers on then- eyes, men who have a keen conception of the duty they owe the citjr, who tare not commit- ted to this or that faction but who would earnestly endeavor to advance the interests of the city .thereby making our city greater and a brighter place to live in. Finally, if you think that I possess these qualifications, then I ask yon, in all modesty, to send me to the Council Chamber as one of your representatives wherein I shall be pre- pared to serve you to the best of my ability for a more prosperous and greater Lethbridge I have the honor to be.

OLSON ONE LESSON LEARNED IN AERO- PLANE FLIGHTS AT SALIS- BURY PLAIN London, Nov. airmen were impressed by the superiority at foreign motors for aeroplanes during the military competitions held, at Sal- isbury Plain in July. All of tlie aeroplanes which passed the test and others recommended for a'wards were equipped with foreign engines. Two of the foreign engines were failures and spoiled the chances of.Uvo aeroplanes of British construc- tion, but on the whole the foreign engines were trustworthy and effic- ient. The British engines in the compe- tition showed improvement but are not yet capable oE equalling the per- formances of the foreign motors. The judges' report asserts that the importance of first class British air craft, engine works cannot ho overrated. It also points out that while there is a natunU reluctance to Jiving in winds of twenty or thirty miles hour when there is no object to he gain-ad, such flights can be safe- ly made by most machines of a. good type.
