The newspaper was generally looked on as -a public in- stitution itself and it too as well as the city councils fails to come up to some people's ideals occasionally. Here is where the council and the newspaper stood on the'same ground inasmuch, were both subject to criticism. The newspaper should give as much publicity as it possibly could. If cri- ticisms were offered to the actions of any public man or body the place it should be offered was in the edi- torials of the paper not in the report of the proceedings. be fair and unbiased. He thought that Jhe newspaper representatives should >e allowed to attend committee nieet- ngs of the-'council even though all ;hat was done there was not publish- ed. A .newspaper loyal: to the city's interests should be willing not "to public matters which they had been asked to withhold. At any rate re- ports of committee should! be given to the newspaper because j criticism of the action taken there might often result in al- tering their actions for 'the best in- terests of the city. Criticism, he stated, was the most serious aspect of the relation of the newspaper to the city council. Cri- ticism for personal reasons alone was wholly wrong but it was the duty of the newspaper man to express his opinion in tlhe best interests of the community. Often the members of the council take such opinions to be personal criticisms and do not -con- sider that they are ,in public- life and their actions liable to public criticism. The members of the council very often have very little idea just what the public opinion about a certain matter may be. He stated an inci- dent where' the mayor of a'-city thought that, public- opinion was strongly in favor of an action and discovered, by means of a ballot in the paper tihat six hundred people to three were against it. The newspaper was a potent fac- tor he stated in moulding public opin ion. He "has .already tried to impress .the people through the paper to sup- port the bylaws and public woroks city of support had mever been obliged to oppose one bylaw in this city not worthy of the sanction of the people. The newspaper and the municipal motion was .seconded by Mr, Dickson of Macleod antd the expression of the vote showed that the meeting heartily endorsed the sentiment ex- pressed by Mr. Griesbach. City Engineer Arnold and Aid. Hatch in slTort adrosses thanked the visitors for the kind words spoken of t'h'e hospitality of the city and as- sured them a better tune than ever next time. The meeting thqn -adjourned to attend the banquet tendered them in the Lethbridge Hotel, by the city. The following delegates were tered fox me convention. W. A. Griesbach, Edmonton; U. it.

Even th smallest paper can be of great infill ence "sometimes, ewspapers oftimes go out of thei way to injure members of the coun cil for personal reasons, he stated in conclusion, but this practice was most unfair although it was the duty of a paper sometimes to pay attention criticism of public acts. Mr. Jamieson of Calgary, in mov ng a vote of'-thanks for this pape" stated that in his opinion it was wel o have public ventilation of all quei tions of.public interest in that spiri of fairness. Councils should be as air-in their treatment of the news papers as they expect fair treatmen in return from the 'newspapers. The motion was- seconded by Sec retary Hall who thought that the council should take the newspapers into their confidence and ffaey would find that nothing would be .publish ed detrimental to .tine -city.

At the conclusion of the election of officers the new president Mr. Gaetz took the chair and presided over the meeting while the question of a selection of a place of meeting was decided on. Mr Dickson, of iMacleod entered an invitation from his town to the Un- ion to meet there next year Mr Higgs of Wetaskiwin, proposed that town as the place of meeting. Mayor Jamieson, of Calgary nom- inated that city as the meeting place that year as the middle position in the province should prove acceptable.
