Mistakes had bee made 'but it was through makjn these mistakes that one learned. 3 Keel favored handling the tndiiEtrla development of the city through th city council and not through th Board of Trade, who had srpianderc money without results, (Hear, hear; Mr. Hardie's gloomy picture worrie him. The record of the city in th matter of civic, improvements durin, the past year was surely worthy a notice. Nowhere had be seen a cit; so well ahead in the matter of it municipal development" as Lethbridge Dave Elton Speaks Dave Elton defended the Board o Trade and instanced tlie work it ha done in the work of the Dr.v-Farmin; Congress. (Hear, hear.) "Are yon i British subject, Mr. queried a ratepayer. "Yes sir; ever, since th' year 1900." (Applause.) Dr. Lovering Dr. Lovering thought that, it wus necessary to have a professional man on the council. Barclay: "We need doctoring.' I Loud laughter.) The doctor in speaking of the con) mission form of government Raid i was necessary from past experience to appoint a police commission. Th< industrial policy came before tin Dr.'s notice. So far nothing hud beei done, by the Lethltridge Board o Trade in bringing industries here What should be done to secure a, first class man and pay him a goor salary to work in securing industries 'or the city. The Dr. in referring to he street railway was of the opinion hat this should be extended to "the loyal Collieries district. He was also n favor of taking over, the Gait lios- )UaI and managing same by an in- leper, commission. AVitii regard o the school board the Dr. thought hat that body had been a little ex- travagant. The Dr. thought that care should be taken to see that a clean and efficient council was elected. W. J. McCamblay Mr. McCamblay was in favor of the straight com mission form of govern- ment and believed that the ratepay- ers should have the say. He express- ed the that employees should receive fair treatment. In his opin- ion there had been great expense, notably in the matter of the assess- ments. Dr. Thompson Nominated Dr. Thompson in addressing the meeting said if it was the wish or tho ratepayers that he should stand lor election as trustee to the school board then ho would be glad to do so. The Dr. stated that, a great deal must be said in favor of the work done by the school board in the erection of new schools. If elected be would do all he could to advance the Interests of I the North Ward in mat- Herbert .Mockford. the only other candidate, said he would do all in hia power to further the welfare of North Lsihbridge. Mr. Mockford in refer- ring to the establishment of the man- ual (mining school on the south side expressed the opinion that North Lethbridge should have the same privilege. thought the school board expenditures should be watch- ed a little more closely. Mr. Ritchie wauled to knffw it MT. Alockfortf ap- proved of the present extension work of the school board. The candidate was not sure that the school hoard would have much to do with this next year and could not give nn offhand answer oil Iho point without studying the question. Another ratepayer wanted to know if Mr. -Mocltford was favor of compulsory vacol nation, to which the candidate replied in the iifilrmative.
