The meeting last night was again featured by a record break- ing at tendance in Kennedy's hall. There was considerable heckling, al- though the beat of feeling prevailed. It was very plain that the feeling of the meeting was in favor of commis- sion form of government, and a live industrial policy. 1 Defends Council Tho first speaker of thy Aid. Williamson, took occasion to cor- rect a misunderstanding which had gone abroad to i.he effect Unit he was responsible for the breaking up of the old ratepayers' association. Dealing with the affairs of the city council, Mr. AVilliamson said he had been charged assisting in making high expenditures during the past year. Ho reminded the ratepayers that all ex- penditures made hud been previously voted on by the ratepayers. With >'e- fca'i'd to the various improvements, with the exception of the sewage- dis- posal plant, ull expenditure in that connection was decided on by the council of 1911. Aid. Williamson also explained Hit? Isolation hospital tran- saction which was a perfectly straight forward one. ilr. .Williamson did not think that because the hospital was sold to a certain party it followed that the place was recognized by the council as one where an unlawful business was to be "carried on. He also referred to the reccni. police in- vestigation antl stated that the new chief of. police had bec-n given a free hand iu the operation of the police forcn. Th'e. Commission form of gov- ernment was Lhui dwelt on by Mr. Williamson, who repudiated tbe charges of neglect, in this connection against the council of Mr. Gillespie's Platform Mr. Gillespie said Ins friend ..-'Air.

What was wanted was a policy of-retrenchment in order to put the city on a sound footing. Arthur Hayr Mr. Hayr believed it was the duly of the mayor and council to carry out the wishes of tbe ratepayers if they desired commission form of govern- ment. If elected .Mr. Hayr said he would endeavor to carry out the needs of people. He was entirely in accord the formation of a police commission: With regard to the-iiuhistrini situation Mr. Hayr said bo hoped the co.uncil of 1913 would frame up a' clear cut proposition as it was of vital importance for tlie wel- fare of the city. In answer to a rate- payer .Mr. Hayr said he favored muni- cipal ownership provided the city was in a position to finance mutters. Mr. Asquith Mr. Asijuith "again appealed to the rnlypayers for support on tlm grounds that be was iu favor of a straight commission fo-rm of government. Mr. Asquith said, regarding the work of the "council- during- the past year, that it was not the''men who were to blame BO much as tlie system. (Hear, hear.) If tho ratepayers were not satisfied ii. was uii to them to change the sys- tem, without any de-lay. The indus- trial problem was a question of offer- ing inducements in order to bring: in- dustries'1 the city. Mr. Asquith thought the ratepayers should be in- structed ,through tbe press ou how to mark their ballots when voting on the question of commission form of gov- ernment. Not in Favor Yet Louis Keel said -h-e would be always ready to carry out-the wishes of tbe ratepayers on the question of com- mission form of government even al- though personally he was not greatly it. 'Referring to bon- nsing in connection with the indus- trial problem Mr. Keel thought this was immoral although'it must he ad- mitted it .was a necessary evil. 1C tbe city could not build a radial railway i; was up to it lo (ry and bring ia the necessary, capital from outside in or- der to accomplish some 'practical re- sult.

Dr. Shearer, of Toronto, sec- retary of the department of social service of the Presbyterian Church Canada, addressed a meeting of fifty women in Knox church yesterday af- ternoon. lie was introduced by Rev. Mr. Mini- caster, of Grassy 'Lake, moderator of the Presbytery. Dr. Shearer said in part: "I have a memory that three years ago i had the privilege of addressing a meeting of women in Lethbridge, among whom the theme of my address is the ap- peal that Christian service makes to j womanhood and the numerous .ways in whicb work in the kingdom of Christ opens lip to women today. "I do know that the interest the women of the Presbyterian church have taken in the interests of the women and children of non-Christian lands has had a rellox influence for good upon themselves. "What is true of their efforts and interest in the women and children in foreign lands is equally true of the strangers in bur own land. We should cease to call them foreigners for they are fellow Canadians. "Whether their work is among wo- men and children, or among men, women and children., it has been Messing lo the country and the church. Social Service "We cannot do the work of evan- gelization without ihe help of women workers. The Methodist church works side by side with the Presbyterian church. I want this afternoon to re- call a few of the causes and reason: for the white slave traffic, and to name some things-that may lead to its cure. I need not say anything about the extent of tbe white slave traffic. The women are realizing the consequences morally, spiritually antl physical y.
