Ills address marked him as a man, who, if placed in charge of the affairs of the city for the coming year' Would fulfil his duties with credit to himself and tho entire satisfaction of tlie large body of ratepayers. GeO. M. Hatch in opening his address he stated that he supposed tho candidate were present to address the meeting In j order to give tho ratepayers an op- portunity to judge for themselves who would make the best officers to ad- minister the affairs of the Queen City of the South next year. He then pro- jceeded to relate his reasons for sett tling in Lethbridge, Having seen the I West rill up with settlers, and becom- iug assured that Lethbridge was (16; stilled to become a great city. He had lived- all his lite in the West, and thought-he was acquainted with ern conditions closely enough to bo able to understand the progressive measures necessary to make n city here such as it is capable of being made. Boocti From_ the First Coming to Lethbridge about, seven years ago, lie had first come into the ricultur'al.'. Society, for whose present I'hlgh standing he claimed some credit, I He has been one of the prime movers the transaction whereby the old grounds had bean sold, and tho new grounds and magnificent buildings se- cured to the city. Three years ago he had been elected to the council, and had occupied the position of chair man', of the parks and -boulevards committee, and also of the fire and light committee. In that time he had given a great deal of time and thought to the work in his hands, and lie believed that he was called the Author of the Boulevard Syilem now enjoyed by the citizens of Leth- bridge. He had also bocn at the head ot the committee when the present parks system was jjvolved, and al- though he was tboHSht extravagant at the time, the ,people had seen the force of the of the plan then laid down, and that is now 'uoins followed almost to the let- ter. Among other things, he said, ho Maimed the credit for the movement to purchase Adams park for en- joyment of the citizens of North Lethbridge.

Among other things ho rapped ihe city council for engaging- Mr. McCauley as consulting engineer for 'the street railway sys- tem when the Calgary papers are making a criticism of his work. His pet scheme of combining the offices of secretary-treasurer and city solici- tor was elaborated upon, his argu- ment being that the council should know when they are passing legisla- tion whether or not it will hold wat- er.

He said In Introduction; that he merely wished to discuss :the ciuestions of the day in a business like manner from the standpoint of a business man.

Most, of the mat- ters touched upon in these platforms are for work for which tho contracts will be let by the present council. He promised, however, if elected, to sec that the administration of affairs while tho Installation of the street railway, the pewage disposal, and paving systems are being installed, were in the best, interests of the rate- pnyera as a whole. Among other things, he said that the contemplated Btrrvey of North Lethhrldge.'In-order u> get the streets properly laid out, was a matter of great importance to North I.ethbrldgc people, and he promised to give his hearty support to this movement.

Ridlil Railway Scheme There was a surprise for the aud- ience when the aldermanlc candidates took the floor, their speeches were not at all amateiirlsil, and they will soon doiolop Into oiators of note II. J- H. Skclth surprised even himself, and In an address which covered the whole of his platform lie showed just where he stood on every question. In connection -with the much discussed street question he In favor of U tor two reaaonn. In the first place it would allow the working man. to build furtSor out, on a cheaper lot and yet reach' his work very easily. Then a radial railway shoulj bo built, which would allow a cen- tralization of Lethbridso. H would bind the mining camps closer to the city to the benefit of both. In fact some of the men. working at Diamond City, Royal View, and the o-Mier col- lieries In this district would probably make their homes here going to and trom their work on' tho street cars. U would mean also an extension ot trade, becaute merchants in these nmaller places ers to public atteu- coulll come Lethbridge and deal which is vital to witn wholesaler. In conclu- sion he said that when ratepayers elected a man to represent tlwr.i, if they had any complaint they should po direct to the man with It and give him a chance to explain before rush- IE to public meetings and discusblng t there. It would be fairer to both. OppoMi Tranifer A.

He .aid that, the' Stb, street overhead noith part of. the city is vital to hough 'there arc times when the in- erests of the two parts arc bound to clash extent. He stated that he. had published his platform, ind as Mr. Hatch had seen fit to en-, dorse it almost as a whole, It must be a good one. His one idea was to secure for 'next, year an administra- tion which would; assure the people a business like method of handling the arge.. convracts whjch will be signed POLICE COURT IN LENIENT MOOD I i 1 lii the cane against Joseph Yopel In tho police court this III which he was charged 'with threaten- ing to kill Nick Miller, it wan-drought out that Yopel wan drunk at the time he made the. threat. In fact he was fined three dollars and cents on that charge yesterday morning. Ills threat; to kill MI'rier was accompanied by very terrifying statement that he already killed two men, and Miller Tell himself moved to call In the po- lice without delay.

He advocated a commission form of gov- ernment with three or ui logous' to the position no .v oc- oi-i-led by the mayor; works and pro- perty, analogous to the position-now by the city-engineer, ind .he power and'light, analogous to the o- now occupied by' the fiup'.rM- tfjtlent of the light, department. How- e-er, the matter, he thought, should n submitted to .the people before ei-is finally adopted. Gets Over a'Difficulty One of his other mnin'points was the matter of a subway. In his op- 'nlon, he said, Ihe North Lethbridge people should have the street railway iust ae soon as those of the south. But as there was a likelihood of a de- ay In gaining permission tp crosa the C. P.: R. tracks at, Westminster ami as it would be impossible to build a subway within the time set for the beginning of operations on the projected system, he thought that the idea of building the 'line on both sides of the track and' working by means of a- transfer should be adopt- ed. This would ensure the least pos- sible delay, in setting the system in operation in all parts of the city. He also scored the present method of carrying out civic contracts, and stated that if elected he would do everything in his power to see that contracts are completed as undertak- en. It would mean a great saving in constr'uctlon to the ulty, and would be a more business like method "of carrying oil! the contracts. Anil in conclusion, he stated that, as Mr. Jlntch had made such a suc- cess Qf the matters'on the Board of Trade, in bringing the Dry-Farming Congress to Lethbridge. and aa the Board' of Trade will be very Intimate- ly connected with the management of the concern next year, he ought to he kept on as president of the Hoard for tho" coming year, in which case the ratepayers would find themselves will ing to vote for Stafford for mayor. Favon Transfer "All the aldormanic. candidates were laid ttiat ins bridge was being" built for the pur pose of traffic, and could be used tor a street railway temporarily If need be It elected he would do his best to ghe th-e'North Letbbrldge people street car service at the very start by using this bridge. He favors the dual Bj-stcm of city government such as is in force in palgary, and favored making both the council and commis- sioners elective, and. subject to the people by roeaBB of the initiative, re- ferendum and recall. i i A Williamson, the other candidate, who acted as chairman of the meet- Ing said that he would reserve his remarks for a latw date, but would explain nli platform then at some present and made short addresses. at Westminster Road could not be obtained, n transfer would work prac- had been used In Winnipeg at the C. never too early hut' times "too late to MCUre lood K- commodation on our ateamers. your local agent or write for com- plete dotaih.
