Mr. Ashcroft Speaks Jas Ashcroft was the speaker. He had been pressed to come out lor the council this year, and while not definitely decided whether to do so or not, he would fight if he did come out. No Private Franchise In respect to the proposed street railway franchise he didn't Uiiuk that it would be granted. The municipal- ity would build it when it was built. Red Deer's experience with corpora- tions should be a sufficient lesson here. If the city could not do it now they would able to. He did not believe in the city offi- cials taking, any part iruthe civic elec-j tions. It was .not right for the sec- retary treasurer of the city to act as the returning officer. Beautify the City Speaking of the proposed park he thought that the real -estate men. would be the only ones to reap much benefit from it. He would rather see the city beautify what, they have first. Sidewalks should be considered before new parks were proposed. A. Tilley Opposes Franchise' A. Tilley, as a proposed aldermanic candidate, was called on. He stated that while he had contemplated en- tering the field he was no a candi- date in this election. He was strong- ly .opposed to the street'railway'fran- chke. The clause dealing with the failure of the company to meet their i obligations allowed of their -holding up the city for two mouths and then I resuming if they pleased.

The work was getting beyond ;the man who could devote only'part of -his time to- the city's affairs: He was strictly oppos- ed city officials appointed on sucTa a commission. The offices should be elective .and filled by men who could give instruction in the way things should be done. In cities where changes were not so rapid the need lor this-was toot -so apparent. Big projects are bound to come up which the council could not handle. Speaking of tie proposed subway he thought that expert opinion would be required as to its exact location, but it was needed badly at a place where the people from 'outside points could easy access to the city. A. Fraync, the North Caudi- -3- date Arthur Frayne, ,the president of the Trades and Labor Council, the candidate from the North Ward, spoke at some length on the munici- pal platform of Trades and Labor Council. These were his views on the questions as he had helped to form that platform. Municipal Ownership He stood for the municipal owner- ship and control of the street rail- way. There were too many defects in ifs'-the by-law to warrant his sanction of it. If the company could make it a
