To the Electors of the City of Lethbridge I am offering myself as a candidate for al- dermanic honors in the forthcoming muni- cipal election for these reasons: I am an ahso'lnte believer in i'he-siraig-hi-'cbni-niission form of government, with ilie initiative, referendum and recall. 1 nin convinced that the ap- pojnt-ment of an independent board of police coinuiisBJoners is an immediate and absolute necessity in this city. Tn my judgment the jnost important work for the council of will lie the CiUTyinsi out of the above named reforms, (ienerallv. if elected .1. shall serve the interests of the citi- zens with as much energy and intelligence as 1 apply to mv own business.

The present council practi- cally ignored the plebiseie and the individual pledu'os by only beginning to consider the. Charter at the last moment and' then throwing up its hands on the pseudo excuse thai it did not: know what the people wanted. We have the impression that this is only a ruse lo sidci rack ihe question nf Commission tiov- ernment. This is not a personal matter with its. We have no inurbane .feeling towards anyone in ibis connection and are only endeavoring io further the interest of the city as we see ihe necessity for a change in tlie System City Government. We shall be 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 lo our platform or any other mailer. stand for a Police Commission, as advocated by the city press, composed of the Mayor, the District -fudge, and the 1'olice Magistrate. stand for TSOOBTIXCr and are strongly opposed to BOOM TXG our city. stand for progressive, but economi- cal government. stand tor a (-lose scrutiny of all fin- ancial affairs and complete publicity in all in all departments, indf'peiulent- ly. and in relation to each other. stand for Commission Government it is practically in effect today aftd giving splendid results in the city of Hes Monies, la., with such few alterations us would better suit IjCthljridge conditions. .Briefly it is as follows: Three independent commissioners or superintendents elected directly by the people, subject to the KK- CA The three commissioners jointly, are an advisory committee to each one ol the three departments. For Legislative purposes ihe three commissioners automatically lie- come a board of aldermen. All leuislaiion is sub jet to the IXmATTYK ami the F.XIJUM. Under these conditions the rate- payers have control all the lime, whereas in the Aldermanic System the ratepayers have' absolutely no say or control excepting on elect ion dav. Bv this system we have, direct responsibility fixed on each commissioner singly and on the three jointly, so that there can be no or shunting1 blame. If there is any virtue in llie Aldermanic System, we retain enough of it io Ilif-sp virtues have lull sway. YOl.liS TIU'LY, W. D. L.

Dr., bishop u! mid-.lapnu, Tor the church of Unhand, who speui years therf as a missionary previous to being; eonsecratod as bishop iu Canada1 recently, said here today that llie talk of a invasion of llie province of British Columbia and tho Pacific coast states, is the rank- I eat kind of bush, adiihig: 1 "Thy Japanese would never think of such a thing. They do not want war 'ivlth any nation, and are alto- gether too wise to suppose thai, ftveu if they gained a foothold on the west- ern part of the they could remain. -They realize they would by driv-e-n out Quickly. "It is true that individual Japanese j would come to Canada for money-1 making purposes, but the government) will not issue more than u limited number of passports and a native Japanese cannot leave the country without a government passport. "Japan is becoming an irreligious Bishop Hamilton continued, "Western material civilization has .undermined the old religions among ihe educated classes and the stuti- ts and educated people, instead of being tli religions die out and leave a vacuum but that Christianity shall replace these religions as they die out. A man with no religion is ;i more hope- less man to deal with than one who is already religious. "Christianity is gaining, however, as only tins year the government, of- ficially placed it on a par with the aneieut. Buddhism and Shintoism. Japan is no longer afraid of Clirist- ity. but encourages it. Tlve curious feature of this is that the oflicial classed are uuite willing for others to Christians, but they do not embrace the religion themselves." Speaking of the dramatic taking off of General Nogi, whom he knew, Bishop Hamilton said that, in common with all otlier people acquainted with Japanese affairs who were not in tlie country at the time, he had nailer- stood the motive of the act to be a desire io serve the emperor in the- life 'beyond. Advices from Japan, however, indicated that General Nogi took his life as an act of atonement for losing his regimental colors in the Saigo rebellion, ;if> years ;igo. He had ever since been characterised byi great fearlessness and faithfulness in I his service on the battlefield and his desire was to be killed hi battle as; an atonement, for what he considered! a great disgrace.
