The chances are, however, that to decide such an important matter in such a hurry, They have had no information handed out and they do not know where in the deuce they are at in the matter. Every darn bit of information that has been given out was a little spoonful given by the city engineer when he was directly asked for it through the press. In a matter of this sort, Dad or some one who knows the facts and can talk a little should explain to the public the whole situation and give the reasons that led the council to adopt the agreement and make it into a by-law to submit to the people for approval. The people will not vote for a thing they are going to go back on the of which they know little nothing- scheme, and it looks very much as if Dad's.bv-law would be defeated. Such by a darned sight. Then ain the people are 'scared .of the busi- a thing never happened before to Dad. j ness. So many pieces of skulldug- There are several reasons for this.} gery have been pulled off trucking One is that the people do not want i with franchises that people are gett- ing leery of them, especially when the people interested are not in a po- sition to put up the necessary dough to see it through right. The people of this burg -do not want any such stunt pulled off here as some fellows worked in Edmonton a few years ago. They got the franchise and went so far as to put up a good-sized deposit as a guarantee that they would go ahead with the construction of the road. They had got some friends to buy up a lot of real estate which they then sold at great big prices on the length of the street railway go- ing there. As a result they cleaned up a good big stake, flew the coop donating the deposit to the city in .lieu of the street railway and that was the end of Edmonton's street railway for several years. I don't think that Dad and the fellows asso- ciated' with him would work any such Sovereign Brand Clothing Is Not An Experiment Thousands of.particular men throughout Canada know that Sovereign Brand Clothing will keep its shape despite the roughest usage.

Sanford Mfg. Co., Ltd, HAMILTON -r WINNIPEG matter for a mistake in such an affair as tins makes a de- vcl-opmcnt of a blunder be- fore they are through with it, as per pretty nearly every city that has granted a franchise to a company. The Board of Trade has asked Dad to call a meeting to give the a chance to air their views and get information on the subject and there are to be a couple of other meetings for the same purpose. If I know any- thing about duty, it is the bounden duty of every citizen who possibly can do so, to attend these meetings so as to inform himself of the issue and know what he is voting on. Babe Mason of the Bostonians wiil piease -you Lyceum next Tues- day and Wednesday. skin game as that but I 'do not think i that they have any idea of building the railway themselves and the Lord only knows what sort of didoes the fellows would be up to who bought it from them. If the privilege is to be j given to anybody, it must not be ex- ploited, but must be a bon-a fide street railway proposition. There is no guarantee in. the agreement that the franchise will be exercised and the promoters are not under any bonds for its being carried out. There is still another little matter that is deserving of consideration in view of this exploiting idea. The ag- reement calls for the company to have certain lines built inside of two years but as the amount required could easily be built in a few months, there-, is no guarantee that the owners of the franchise will do a darn thing for a year and six even longer. Tf tne agreement said that they had to start making the track inside of six months and have a cer- tain1 amount done inside of two years it would look a darn sight better from the standpoint of the people. As old Gorgon Graham used to say, "these arc just a few remarks in pass- ing." The bylaw provides an agreement that in a great many ways is a mighty good one. The city gets a share of the proceeds as soon as there arc any and doesn't have to wait un- -1.il there arc profits up to .a certain i per centage, which is never reached as per the C.P.R. agreement with the Pleasant and Palatable government.

ATTEND THE MEETING Editor of the Herald Dear read in the local papers that the Board of Trade de- J sire the Mayor of the city to call a meeting for the purpose of discussing the Street Railway franchise and oth- j er quest-ions, may I point out that; we, the Trades and Labor Council. have decided that a meeting for the j purpose of enlightening the burgess- i esses on these questions, and may j other that may arise, has been called for Thursday next in the Labor Hall, to which meeting all ratepayers are j invited to attend, as also are the j present Council, and the aspirants to civic honors. I have received a de-, finite acceptance of our invitation from the mayor, and also from three of the aldermen, so the meeting i should be a fairly representative one. Hoping all who can will attend.
