Stibbs gained the lead in the contest with an increase of That's another board toward the house, a wheel toward the auto, some of the expense money for the trip around the world, or a "bunch" to- ward the 51200 solid cash, it is a conceded fact that all the candidates are alining toward the first this computation is made on that hasis. .ijiss Agnes Pelletier increased her score' from to and secured second place among all the candidates, Miss Pelletier has never expressed a preference .for any particular prize, .but that is not necessary. In the last Herald contest her brother George made a very strong hid for the) auto, even If he did start late. Miss Agnes was an early candidate this time, and it ta safe to say that the "Honk-Honk, chug-chug" of the Herald auto would not he objectionable in Pincher Creels.

Gerald started In about the tag end of the tirst period schedule, but has been making the "fur even since. Watch out for Bow Island. Mr. J. A. Bidault keeps right on the heels of the high ones. He's a splendid pacer. Ho rather favors the auto, we.understand, but if he sets it lie wants a bell-like horn, none of these looters that make a noise like scraping a rusty spade across a battered piece of sheet for him. Do it now. A two or three-year subscription for the Daily Herald will help your favorite candidate immensely. Mrs. Houll almost reached the mark today. Mrs. Hoult de- liberated about entering the contest for a week after it was announced, and when' handing in her nomination said she could easily see where she could not commission made it sure. But commission has long since been forgotten, and she is making a bid for a prize high in the house or J1200. for instance. Mrs. Ira C.

Contest Closes December llth Meeting at Fleetwood School in Which Everyone Got a t Good Hearing South Lethbridgo ratepayers have had their say, and so have those North Lethbridge. To kfeop thi equitable Messrs. Tuckwell and Lover- jug, at the ratepayers' meeting in the Fleetwood school last night, moved that the mayor be asked to call a public meeting at an early date so -that the ratepayers of central Lcth- liridge might have their say. The motion -wag carried unanimously, and the meeting will he held in the Ma- jestic Theatre. The meeting last night was adver- tised to be a warm session, but the fireworks did not materialize, ami al- though'there was a lot. of speaking there was little outside the usual .campaign utterances- heard. Two irayoraliy candidates, D. L. Hardle EASY ECONOMY. For any meat to-day Se- lect, meaty Atlantic fish without bones As wholc- somennd as tasty as though it left the sea hut yesterday. Even that relishing sea- salty tnng is intact. Sim- ple recipes in eacii sanitary package. "HALIFAX" and "ACADIA" CODFISH. and JOB. Glilespte, were present and stated their cases. Both were fair, and both received a good hearing. No classroom would till the bill at last night's meeting, so the crowd scurried to the big auditorium where everyone could be comfortable and the speaker's could have the use of a real stage to test their nerve. The auditorium was over half filled, evi- dence of the increasing hold the election campaign has gained on the ratepayers of L-ethbridge. Probably this is because they haven't been through three election campaigns, as 'was the case last, year, but if this campaign 'keeps warming up as it has during the last week it will earn the reputation of. the "hottest ever." Jaa. Dawson was voted to the chair and first of all put the ban on amok' iug. Then th-cy got down to .business, There was some discussion as to whether or not a Duff Addition Rate- payers' Association should he formed or not. Tho committee appointed at last meeting, Mr. Dhickhurne chair- man, was heard, recommending that association he formed, and that the ollicials of that now organization scan the aldennanic field and select a. slate for recommendation to tlio ratepayers cf the Duff Addition. This report was adopted. Tho election of officers resulted a follows: x Vice Molt. Tiiclcwoll. Executive M.K. Kaako. S. Martin, Ilev. W. V. Me- Milieu, .las. Dawson and Cook. AVith the new president In the chair mayoralty aspinlnts were called to tho platform, and W. D. L.' JIardie was the llrst. He said he would not criticize per- sons but tho system. He said they nil know where he stood on one filia- form tjf govern- ment. That, hy siiid, was the main plank of his platform In this cam- puigii. I la a rcsimiti of what had been clone so far 'in this line.. criticizing the last two mayors and! councils for not pushing the new charter through. A 3 il. Is now tin1 r is preparm!

Ite criticized the present couuci because of Ihe fact that none of the council recognize the cost comparison system in use in all corporations. I Calgary can produce electricity 01 pump water cheaper thaii IJetubrldge how much cheaper and Mr. llardie then went into a short explanation of the- workings of .com- mission government, and his explana- tion was so cluar and concise that many opponents of the system were won over because it was shown to ba the best protection for the people. The referendum, recall and initiative were all explained iu their relation to the ratepayers. Ho also criticized tlie financial sys- tem of tlie city, claiming that the sys- tem was losing them a great deal, which might be s'.ived to ths city. Tn answer to u question regarding the fair'wage, Mr. llardie stated .Urn! he was in favor of paring .city labor- ers if they wore ratepayers the high- est possibl-s provided the man gave him value for tlie money. He also believed tint, commission- ers coukl found without going out- side the city. A had to go to Toronto for a chief of police." (Laughter.) North Lcthbridcje Candidate Speaks Donald McXnbb, the next speaker, said lie was yhul to see the Duff ditlon for only by organiz- ing will they gain their ends. "The taxes this year are :i little higher, but it is just that which is 'required to force ho said, "to look for can- didates ivith their brains in the right place. I am not criticizing this year's council when I thiit. for I believe they given the best 01' ihoir ability for the city :i.s a whole." Tin; speaker ulsn tlie con- tracting system Tor getting public works done, and asked the ratepayers to elect, men who would see that tlnY 'was clon-n under city supervision by local laborers. Then tho men wlu earn ihe IMUIK-J i-eiimiu iii tin city and not, leave it. in the fall. "So far as the wage question is con- cerned, I think the thing that ought to this question is the union of wages for the class of labor the city employs." He thought U presumption on the part of liny ean-jlidaio to say anything abom the commission form of govern- muni. That is up to tlie ratepayers. ono candidate, arising them to selec slute and stay with it. 1 Ic advocated the best wage for laborers, naming per da; as the minimum, talcing the high cos; of living into account. He took a fall out of (ho official labor paper of the city for carrying bis eastern departmental store adver tisement, advising them to cut it out if they wanted people to buy at home as well as using home labor.

He bad accepted the invitation contained in UK> numerous requests from all classes of citizens to offer himself as- a candidate as mayor. He said lie was in favor of a change in the system of government. He would, also, if elected, publish the financial standing of the city In the press, as it is impossible now to ob- tain that information. connection with the press, he said he hoped they would conduct the present campaign as an education to the ratepayers that they might hfear both sides of all questions at Issue. Me hoped to have another opportun- ity later to lay bis whole platform be. Fore them. Straight to the Point Lionel Asqulth in two commission govern- ment and ;t police commission. He favors commission government he- cause the ratepayers new laws, refer back bnd ones, and lecall any candidate who is not living up to his promises to tho people. He wanted to be elected only to push the new charter to a successful issue. Then he is ready to step out. As for a police commission, he be- lieved it was only right that the police should be under the absolute control of a commission of men distinct from the council. Had this been the case this year some unpleasant affairs might have Ire en avoided. John Brodie wanted to know what Mr. Asfiniih would be prepared to do along the line of an industrial policy Tor next year. Incidentally Mr. Hro- tllc took a-nip at the Board of Trade Maiming that they had done nothing the past year, tn answer Mr. Asijuith said ho was !u favor of a! ;ano industrial policy, actively prose-j ciitfd by (lu. city council, i-esoh-inir .hemsolves into an industrial corn- nil tee. to go out. induce ind us tries o Incato hero, not. bonus thorn, but lid them to whatever extent may be denned noccspfrry up to a certain poiih.

The speaker said he was asking for their votes on hla past record. He left it for them to judge. Louis Keel reiterated his stand tak- en before the Duff Addition ratepay- ers on Friday night. Commission form of government is not up to Him, he said; that is for the ratepayers to answer, ami the council to act up- on tho peoples' wishes.
