The Herald's Real Estate Market WARD IDEA TURNED DOWN IS No Sympathy For the System In the City Council Tlie (;ily will not be [lividcd into wards but thete will ho irtote than one polling booth at the next municipal election. That was the final outcome of one* of the longest dchatvs that the city council has had for a long time. The debate, was not all on these subjects but covered a wide field of thought and research as one subject led to another. The main issues were settled in short order as the" petition for the former was filed witfiout any discussion as to whether they would do so or not and the Petition lor the latter was granted without any debate except as to how it could best be worked out. The Mayor started all the bf-play. He had loaded himscU with figttt(>8 relative to the North Ward to meet some of the statements made at the meeting held in the North Ward on Friday when it was argued that that part at the city was not getting 3 square deal in the matter of expenditure of public money on local improvements. A delegation was present appointed by that meeting ^nd had with them the two petitions mentioned. Wm. Matthews presented the one asking for the ward system and A. Frayne this, which had appealed to him and made him change his mind about in- lor ine waiu ayav^m oil" '-"J- ...... ------o-  the one askiftg for additional polling! troducing the system m Lethbridge. ; He dealt particularly with the jea- Thc mayor thought the extra polling booth was a good thing ami lousy that exists among wards and thereby preventing the advancement ing booth was a gouo miue would have had a ...otion put through 1"^ ""Ptovcmcnts at once arranging for it.- Aid.

The member.s of the board were not exactly familiar witli the Jocation of the site mentioned except on the map which they had on the table before thorn. It was therefore decided that the board should make a trip all over the city and form an opinion as to where they want the schools located, and then secure the sites there or as close to the places as possible. The board proposes to buy three or four eitea next year, so as to g-et them be-1 fore the blocks are broken by buildings.
