Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta PageS THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HEKALD Monday, November .28, 1910. CIVIC To the Electors qfithe Giiyt of Lethbridge Monday, November 2Sth, 1910. been requested: b> a number of'you to .stand-for tion as a'member of your' City Council; 'and having: acceded-to that I-take this opportunity" of making public-announce- ment of tne ideas which I intend to support. 1. Government "of the City by Commission.. To be guided by the wish" of the'people as ir will be expressed by the plebis- cite no.v being taken through-the 2. ownership "of street railway whenever the quei' tion c'omes -up. 1 am opposed to granting a private" franchise. 3. .our Electric Light Service, and' the ex- tension- of. the .day .current... .Investigation, of. proposed gravity system supply, with A yjew-.of. as permanent and adequate'.as' possible in acqorjdance.withtne growth of ;the city. 5 That all .public, construction "work before" being- commenced by the City's .own .department or. let .to'a contractor should be advertised and thrown open for public teader. 6. The .fair, .distribution, of the city's business amongst its 7, Strict, enforcement and collection of all Dray "or Team Li- cense's .so. long, is a.by-law imposing- same.; fihould.be made. __ S. iJudiciptis and careful 'expenditure for -farther local -im- provements.as may .Ve required. 'j 9 Hore, Jg.ublic.uv regarding Municipal expenditures through1 out .the year. 4. 10, To. recognize TJie..trust rimposed Councillor aiid to Herbert J. of the V I City of Lethbridge "-v-AKtMg.'is'the'season of the year that .we to -select several- aldermen to represent us for the ensuing'year and. fts-lhere-is- strong- feeling amongst us that there sttoiild-'be some- 'iny-hmable. on, the, subject. .-I that the. head oi each department put in '.iihafge pertaining to office :and made for that department to the Mayor and Council, You- -could- then call'this man Commissioner "or Manager, or whatever you since you happein to oe paying him enough, to call Mm. either, see it he does his work.to the best interests of the City, -1 consider that each, department of the city is a .self, aa.d we have got to hare a man. at the head of departments who understands it, to run. it successfully. For mstahce .place a Commissioner over Supt. Reid -who did not understand; electricity and -'air. Reid could rum half the electrical power .gener- "ated into the ground and your Commissioner looting at the -wire, 'conducting it there, and not he any wiser, and I believe it is .the' same in all the other departments. .It takes years of study to become expert along these lines and. we believe the .heads of these are, or ought to be, expert in their respective departments. If each department was r.un by the head of that particular department then this said, manager would lay all his estimates and recommendations before the. Mayor, or.-First Com- missioner, and die -Mayor would bring all the important matters "before the Council and they., would accept or reject them, and in thisj way I-don't see why the Council would have to take up so mach of their.valuable time. ,The.City-is paying the heads of these depart- ments to do this work and I don't see why, the Council should have it to do. When you place each department on its own merits you -would be-.systematizing that department and could then do away with the several committees of the Council, and I believe that here is the weak spot of our administration today. A Council- should he -one body at all times just as the directors of any other corporations are. As regards City improvements I feel confident that they will -be as in the past and that we will all be ready.and willing to build the City Street Hallway as soon as conditions -will justify the .game. The Mayor's idea of a gravity water system is surely a worthy one and if found to be practical it is worthy of the most serious -consideration. Regarding elective Commissioners I will only say that I do not believe you can get the, best men in the city to accept a position they will have to go to the people every few rears to be re-elected, and the good ones are not always the popular men of the City. I belfeve the people should have the power at all times to recall any employee of the C.ty by presenting to the Council a petition, signed, by about twenty-five per cent of the qualified voters of the City, the same to be registered in the City Hall and no; circuited on the streets. Being a candidate for Aldermanic" honors, I would ask the citizens to study these few suggestions carefully. Yours respectfully, J. C. Rusk Cliquot Champagnes As requested by some of our many valued "cuStGjjuerS and friends "we have secured, a small shipment of the famous Vve. Cliquot Dry Champagnes from Kheims, France.

It is true that the company did not pay the interest on the bond's matur- ing in July last, but tne reason (or thai is to be found in the lale prem- ier's announcement above referred to as a result ol" wmcii and the unset- tled conditions which gave rise to it. Persons largely interested in financ- ing the railway the railway refused to provide the necessary funds to pay the interest until assured that tie'enterprise would be permit- ted to proceed without'further inter- ruption, but the contract between the jrovernmcnt and the company does not provide or permit confiscation be- cause of default in payment ot inter- by the company. "The rights of- fault are defined by clauses 19 and 20 of the bond mortgage to which the government is a party. By this in- strument certain remedies are given after such default has continued for six months and other rights are giv- en which can only be exercised aHrr such default, if continued for three years, neither of these periods have yet expired..
