The municipal elections Hike
place rext Thursday, anil while
there was no apparent tush of candidates until this week, two (lis

one led by the present mayor, and
the other championed bv Horace

accept nomination, Aid, Robertson

influential delegation to reconsider

llius filling Mayor Kilpatrick's
ticket. In most municipalities it Is
customary for the mayor to occupy
the chair for two years, and no one
can accuse the piesent mayor of
"hogging" the job. He has Idled
a most tlifiiciiU position for the
past year with credit to himself and
to the municipality, and the electors will make no mistake in re
electing him to again fill the responsible position, and it should
also be their duty toelect the gentlemen lie has selected for his advisors for the ensuing year. They
are well-known business men. and
three of them have seiyed the city
credibly last year.
The ticket headed by Horace
McPhee is composed of reputable
citzcns, and business men, two of
whom served in last year's council.
They would be quite capable of filling all the chairs very comfortably

Notes By The Way
The amount of lumber exported
this year already totalled 63 1-2 million feet at the end of November,
and would have been even gitnter
but for the Panama Canal being
held up by landslides, thereby stopping tonnage. Two bundled million feet of lumber has been purchased by tlie Allies in the Southern States, a large proportion of
which would have been supplied by
this coast but for the canal failing ;
to perform its functions.
When in KJ12, the Canadian
Northern Railwv selected Port
Mann as its terminus, many people
wete induced to buy lots in that
promising locality. The apparent
terminus is now Vancouver, aud
the speculators are sore, some $3,-
000,000 worth of land having been
bought on tlie strength of the intentions of the railroad.
The naturalized Japanese of Vancouver are anxious to join a battalion for active service' and only
await authority from Ottawa to go
ahead.    Well done, Canadians !

much thrift in the meantime and
the minimum amount of stock will
be placed lower than $100, ns was
the case with the first loan.

Letter to the Editor
Editor Review :
Sir, Upon perusal of the little
sheet labelled " Citizens' Ticket,"
the gramatical construction of
Which jars one's nerves, particularly when he knows lhat the composition is the handiwork of one sufficiently posted in educational matters as to sit if noi qualify, as a
school trustee, moves me to the
conclusion that the platform was
made to get in on, not to stand on.
In support of this opinion I beg lo
discuss the planks step by step,
1. No salary plunk. I would like
to ask who but one, the ex-alder-
inati whose name appears on the
ticket, ever thought of asking sal-
aryfor his services? The mere mention of altletmanic salary is distasteful to the ratepayer who lias
learned during the past year that
to tlie faithful (Liberal) belong
the spoils.
2. Electric Light Plank, Not
bridge planks which took up twice
as much lime in discussion from
some of the aldermen as did this
all important question uf electric
light. What a reversal of opinion
from one year ago when the same
aldermen and other municipal aspirants declared they would drive tlie
electric light out of the town ? Al
that time electric light was only
monopolistic, unholy and not lo be
touched by any loyal citizen. Now
it is a great benefit, 'C are told by
ihe citizens' ticket. Not more so
than one year aRO when it was decried from every McPliee platform
and street corner. The electric
light company has not yet received
a franchise. Why ? Because certain ol ihe aldermen wet'e pledged
to "buck" it- They were afraid
to let it t;o to the vo'e of the properly holders fearing, as we all
know, that the service would be
pronounced acceptable. The elecs
trie light company did not ask for
an exclusive franchise, bul only
for the privilege of doing business
in our city by the approval and
consent of the property holders.
Realizing that the public demand
for the electric light is irresistible
these same aldermen who wanted
to kick tlie company out of town
now, Judas like, come out with
their commendation of it, But the
electors will not be ''buncoed" by
this citizens' ticket's change of
front, for they know that should
these same aldermen be re-elected
they would still carry on the war as
of old aud we would be in the same
position one year hence as now.
We are told that we will be furnished with the very best expert advice from lawyers and engineers.
We to our sorrow have already had
too much of this kind of advice,
what we need row is a little everyday common sense and less quibbling and obstruction " By their
fruits shall yu know them." No,
Mr. Editor, the leopard cannot
change his spots nor can the public be deceived all the time.
3. The Extravagence plank. A
candid admission, indeed, by the
late chairman of the finance committee, Mr Johnston, who was responsible along with two others
who usually did his bidding for tlie
financial matters of the city- To
refresh his memory I might cite a
few instances of the waste of tlie
city's funds viz.: over ��400 for the
services of the first returning officer. $300 for the services (?) of a
city constable who was selected
from the outside in preference to
our nun citizens, antl who gave the
double cross to the city on his dismissal and to whom Alderman
Johns1--ii and another member of
the finance committee at the iast
meeting of the council gave an extra $15 in recognition of his valuable services in complying with the
instructions of the police commissioners and board of works The
payment of a month's unnecessary
salary to a teacher who stayed up
all it ght previous to the last, elec-
tion in order to print a "big boost"
for the defea ed mayoralty caudi-
date and his aldermanic supporters
.tiii.l who, by the way, never gave
an account of the proceeds of the |
schooi concert held for the purpose |
of buying necessary school equip-1
meut. Many other instances can !
be cited in which the city's funds
have gone to the favoured few, I
even when the lowest tenderer was
not accepted beccuse he was not a i
friend or supporter of the solid
four. No Mr- Ex-Aid Johnston I
and McKeiizie you cannot pull the
wool over the eyes of the  electors
at this election ns you did last, for
we have seen what measures you
are capable of endeavouring to foist
on the public.
-1, Ratepayers' Ass'n plank. A
commendable idea, provided it is
not made apolitical (Liberal) machine as is at least one of our public associations in this city, viz. the
board of trade.
6. Fair Valuation, low taxation
plank. An honest repudiation of
the work of the late assessor, now a
candidate for municipal honors and
the appointee of the solid four, Mr.
Anderton. Evidently the citizens'
ticket has another supporter they
wish to befriend, as assessor, who
will devise some new method of
taxation. ���Marvellous finance by
exceptionally brilliant men. For
the " Love of Mike " don't keep
your " light " hidden under a
bushel, but patent jour new dis
covery of how to lighten taxation.
Sell your idea to some of our neighboring cities and with thepioceeds
y.iv your taxes ami creditors antl
keep the change.

To the Electors of Courtenay
In response to requests from numerous friends and
electors I have consented to stand for re-election to the
of fice of Mayor for the ensuing year, 1916, and should
I be favored with your confidence and am re-elected I
assure you I shall consider it a sacred duty to work for
and in the interests of the City without regard to any
interests foreign to the City
1. Rigid economy in all departments with efficiency unimparied.
2. Taxation to be reduced to the minimum and
property to be assessed at present and not inflated
values. I favor light taxation consistent with the needs
of the City, the avoidance of speculative expenditure
and the careful looking after of the City's resources.
3. All public improvements to be done by residents of the City and not outsiders.
4. Streets to be opened where necessary and present roads kept in good repair.
5. Give the present electric utility a chance to
make good and in the event of a franchise being asked
of the City, consent shall be given on the sole condition
that the City can buy at any time at a fair valuation,
and in the event of a disagreement the matter to be determined by arbitration, and that present rates be not
raised to householders or City.
5 (a). Before any franchise is granted for electric
light or any other utility, the mailer to be submitted to
the property owners for their approval or otherwise.
6. If elected I promise to give a business man's
administration and strongly feel that the Council should
be free from any suspicion of party or personal matters
and that discussion of the City's affairs should not be
marred by acrimonious debate but carried out in a business like manner and as harmonious as possible.
If elected with a Council pledged to reforms and a
business administration I see no reason why our City
should not go ahead and new industries be induced to
locate inside our City limits.
Thanking you for your support last year and asking
a continuance of it,  and yours for a brighter, bus;er and
more progressive Courtenay for 1916.
Yours truly,
