McKenzie and his associates in the electrical contract- per year, and cjty business, and the of the -been that the last three years 'been taxed to 50 per cent of Its capacity. Other western cities are not in the same condition as Lethbridge regarding size of plant, for in no-other city hag the output fallen off in the same proportion as in Lethbridge. The inference from the latter part of the fourth paragraph of his letter is evidently intended to be that the Electric department lacks business arbility, tact, and courteous treatment the Electric department was being run for the benefit, of the 'citizens at large, and not for the prof ft' three or four; but the contractors would al- so benefit, because a lot of, these ap- pliances require special- wiririg, wiring is their legitimate, business. During the 1913 election campaign; Mr. McKenzie approached', regard- Ing my well-known ideas qn. electrical appliances; he said he was nt- of customers and business associates. waal'-my policy being understood that the electricity must be used for illuminating and de- monstrating, and not for commercial purposes, to take'effect on Slarch 1 1014." This clearly sets forth the un derstanding of the Electrical depart ment that the advertising, demon Etratmg nnd popularizing of electri city was 'in the hands of the electrica .contractors, and if air. McKenzie thinks the merits of electricity have not 'been properly demonstrated, then he and his associates are to hlame. Further, the city has taken a mem- bership in the society for Electrical development, so as to get up-to-date ideas and information on how to it and if the electrical contractors were up to date- Jn their ideas and methods on the ab- ove, they would have shown some de- sire to cc-operate with the department by taking a membership in the above society, and doing their part to spread the use of electricity. However, the society has now a splendid committee organized for the purpose of holding a "prosperity weak" from November 29 to December 4, over the whole of the American continent, in an endeavor to bring prominently before the pub- lic the wide use of electricity, and to show the vast influences' of electri- city in making for the prosperity and Ever, since .1 have been connected with the Electrical department, it has been my fixed policy to treat the pub- He fairly and courteously, and I have drilled this into every member of the Electric department's staff; and in any.'cases where a reasonable doubt existed, the public have been given the benefit of the doubt, because I have always reasoned that a custom- er who was sent away feeling satis- fied that he had been accorded fair treatment was a good customer for the city to have, and more.than once conrfactors and peace of the nation. Here is an op- 'pbrtimity for Mr. McKenzie and his would be. I told! him fstm" believed asociates. Yours truly, Altl ciUK HffiiJ, Comm'issioner, the city should handle Electrical ap- pliances, but that on raccouht-of fin- ancial conditions, I did not "think we would be able to funds to handle such a .proposition.
