Sir; Re your ditorlal entitled "Police Force NofGetting Results," let me say that the police force for regular detective,work In the city consists of the chief and ONE man with another for special work on assignation and liquor. When an epidemic of burglary or anything else breaks out temporary additions are made to the detective force which has been done now. When we had twenty-two policemen in the city of IJethbridge at a cost of $35,000 per annum,?,which force would now cost ?50,000, things, to my persona! knowledge were no better than now, to wit: the burglary at the Western Canada Agency when the burglars were even seen at work but got clear oft through a cofdon of policemen. You knock the police. Now I put it squarely up to you and the people. For the past five years the city government have been required to spend fixed sums each year after the utmost economy has been exercised. In no, year, that I have been mayor, have the ratepayers paid In more than 60 per cent of the sum required (the average is less tha^ 55 per cent) and I have been required to dig up the difference to keep the city going, that is, I have had to make shift for from $200,000 to $250,000 each year since I have been mayor, on my personal assurance that things would come all right. Do you realize what a load of that kind means'? You should. Do you imagine that this has been child's play or do you imagine that It has been done without a very strenuous effort? The Utrain has been so hard that my health conditions 'are ab'iwMt 25 p&^^ent poorer than when I-took otficcR^hat ia .some effort and sacrifice. it the people wani/pne hundred po-lice and will pay for them, I am willing, but I cannot go on begging money tor the unnecessary. Now sir, it is squarely up to you, in your influential ^position aa editor of a pa^er, to quit sniping at me and tell the people what to do, that is, tell the people if they-want the police force enlarged th�y must pay for it, day "by day so that at the end of the year and through the year the mayor Is not winrried to death about how he will f et t^e money. Now sir, it is up :tb you to tell the people that it is ju�t as Immoral for the city officials to spend more money than the people can pay, for as It is for iiidividuals to indulge in luxuries they cannot affard. W. D. L. HARDIE. Mayor; QUEBEC JUDGE SECLARE6 ANNULLIVIENTS ILLEGAL Quebec, Oct. ^.-^Justice Choquette today.passed judgment In the court of Isessions in a case where a local youth named Dusssult chareed two police officers with illegally arresting him on the ground that hts claim for eiemptlott had been, annulled by or deir-ln-council.
