C. Smith, t-he Li- beral candidate, was'defeated, not "by a plurality of votes cast for his op- poirent, but by a technicality by -which Mr. Smith was deprived of the benefit of the evident intention of 18 Toters to cast their ballots for him, a. technicality which gave Mr. Ross fine official certificate of election, for rwhich he had not received a real plur ality of thc votes cast. j This time the McBrite C.N.R. pol- icy as announced, has electrified the ".Liberals all over the province, and 'now-here has its effect been more ipronounced as here in Fernte.

The City Council will have a special meeting the first part of nest week, to consider the proposition, and no doubt it will be granted as a good gas system would be a boon to Taber. The site has not yet bees selected, but the report is that it will be located somewhere north of town, or near the river. This ru- more has been around town the past two or three years, 'bat it is assured that operations will be commenced at once, if the franchise is granted. Some of the promoters of the com- pany are local men, and if the work is commenced, no doubt they have the financial support to see the work through. There was some talk some time ago of organizing a stock com- pany, and several would be glad to take stock, as if gas could be secured it would certainly be a paying, prop- osition.

On Saturday night the city council passed a by-law .provid- ing for a penalty not exceeding if an automobile or any other vehicle not propelled "by muscular pedal run over the streets, lanes, boulevards or parks of the city at a speed exceeding eight miles an hour. They jnust also make the crossings at a less speed as may be "reasonable and proper." Moreover, for an in- fraction of this by-law the license may be suspended or revoked and a charge preferred against- the driver within twenty-four hours. The police may, on conviction, cancel the li- cense and not renew it again during the same year.

Moreover, the number of the machine must, be printed in figures at least 24- inches high on the lamp on the front oi the machine. The city solicitor submitted the- hack tariff by-law, which question has been under discussion for about six months.
