THE PEOPLES' FORUM MR. RADCLIFFE'8 DISMISSAL Editor Dear the medium o your paper I would like to notify m many Lethbridge friends 'who hav naked me what the outcome of, th investigation promised by couno re my 'being fired by the city engineer that so far as 1 know nothing ha done. I know the council hav bad a strenuous time of late, but jua the same I cannot help but feel tha little time could .have been Bparei to that I got a. square deal. To gel fired IB nothing in itself, -bu it ia the manner in 'which I -was ilrec that I resent. All who are in touch witfi affair in the city engineer's department know'that my dismissal hag been pre- meditated. On notified, by the city en gfneer that the city had no furthe need of my services, I asked for an explanation. The reply I received wa that there was me to do and he also told me that 1 was a higl priced man. This is not the flrst ae has made that statement, and 1 was because of this that I asked fo; a square deal. I am in the position to know, tha the city engineer tried to have mi salary reduced shortly after he came to the city, but he iBflll MURDERER ATTEMPTED TO ESCAPE Halifax-. Sept.

I leave it to the council and citi zens to judge as to whether I have earned my salary, which was per month. Last year I handled al :he concrete work an-d the testing o cement, alone. This year I have de signed and constructed the work a Henderson Park lake. I am not say ing this to advertise myself, but explain to the public. IE I was die missed because there was nothing to 'do, why 'was I, who have been hi the service of the city as concrete in spector longer than any other E the .first to be discharged? With regard to being a high priced man, I might say that those in glasa houses should not throw stones. Whilst 1 have been in the service of the city I have always tried to do my -duty in a straightforward manner and have always hud tho interests of the city foremost in my mind. If the city council are satisfied thai my a-brupt dismissal was in ortUr, am still entitled to an honorable dis- charge from them, ifor it was through the council that my services were e- tained. In conclusion. I wish to thauk my many friends for the courtesy shown me during my stay in. Lethbridge. Thanking you for the space .icaarc ed, I am, Yours truly, WILLIAM ItADCLIPFB. Taber, Alia.
