Cranbrook had a white Christmas   of   tbe.
old fashioned order.     Christinas is now almost
two thousand years old, !'iu so long as there are
children ami older folk.- '"ho can become children again ai leosl once in ' ie year, it will always|
lie the mosl auspicious ami significani season of!
the year.  The snow lhat cam,' ami made Christmas ihe beautiful ami seasonable day that it i
was will moll away, leaving   the   same brown
earth beneath it.    Will the spiril of Christmas.
when goodwill and open-heartedness arc so apparent, also melt away  leaving men and women lo appear onco more in tlio same drab tones
of every day life'-'     Christmas comes lull once a
year—true; oui why pul thai intangible but ever so blessed attribute of Ihe season, the Christmas spirit, away with ihe decorations for the
next year'.'

Ratepayers of the City of Cranbrook
For MAYOR
Having heen approached by a number of the
citizens and different organizations of the Clly of
Cranbrook to stand for the office of Mayor for the
coming year, I have decided to be a candidate for
this ofllce. 1 have had nine years of aldermauic experience and have at all times endeavored to promote
the beBt interests of the city. If elected I will again
do my utmost to further the interests of the ratepayers of the City of Cranbrook.

TO THE
Electors of the
City of Cranbrook
As ratepayers you will booh he called upon to selc.t the v rsouni'l
of your council for 1984, Our past >• ar'fi record Is sulllelent guarantee
that wc acted strictly In accord Willi your wishes in avoiding n waste
of public money fn nseleis and Impracticable schemes. The wooden
sidewalks must be uhollshed. Now Hint We have cheaper light wte
should standardize our business section nnd Instill n vastly more pow-
erfrl lighting on our avenues and streets, protection of our water
supply, proceed with the park which the people havo sanctioned.
Seeing lhal the money spenders have bequeathed to >y,\ a debenture debt of approximately $400,000 and au annual Interest to maintain of more than $25,000, money should be set asfdc each year lo
decrease this capital debt and so curtail the terrific interest. While
eftudylng the Interests of the ratepayers nt all times, if I am still
favored with a renewal of your support and confidence I am willing
to support any cause or scheme which speltB progress and prosperity
for Cranbrook.
I wish to put this quest ion before the ratepayers. Why Is It that
Alderman Batmen! and myself have earned such pronounced opposition and bitter criticism? Is It not because we probed Into the Internal affairs In relation to civic administration and discovered a
rotten state of affairs nnd insisted that honesty and Justice should
prevail? We have not backed up one Inch from tbe position we took
nt the early period of 129., council nnd this Is where wo stand today.
Yours faithfully
Thomas H. BRONSDON
