Mayor Sutherland—In my opinion
the proportion of old councillors reelected euch year is one-third under
thc Ward system; I think the ward
system should bc abolished in small
towns 11 ti.I er thc uct. dome of our
people live outside the city limits und
escape u certuln portion of tuxes. The
rivet' bunk is left outside the limits,
so ihut the government will shoulder
tho responsibility ol repairing same,
and persons living on the bunks also
escape city taxation. I think au election for two years ot mayor und ul
ilciniMii would enable u better policy
und more continuous syHtem to be
adhered to. Our aldermen are unpaid
the muyor receives u salary ol *MHi
per annum by a by-law pussed every
session. Our water and light ure

tern of nppointment of police und license commissioners,  but there is   a
difference ot opinion.
There arc several matters to bring
up Ior your consideration. I
BIOK AND DESTITUTE
We have u lot of outsiders travel

upon the city. The insane who drill
.n here Irom outside also full on the
city,   and   both   these  clussc-   ot   peo -
1 le should be put up lo the Provincial government, The government have
relieved us in certain cu-es of infect-
ous diseases, and 1 think thut policy
should be legalized and extended to
all lick and destitute cases. Men
come in here and die and the city
have t" pay the burial expenses of
the •  total strangers.   We hud a case
a lew   weoka  ago  ol    a     patty   whose
hoine  is  at   Calgary.   Mosl  of  these,
people belong to the  hoboe class and
it works a hardship    on the smalleri
towns.    There   is  a buboe  clu-H   which
cause u considerable expense and     i
would be prepared to recommend thut |
the Provincial police tako over     all i
such cases, allowing the city to handle Infringements ot by-laws only.
The government should tuke charge
ol  all   cnitiin.il  ca Im  the city
hunts and crown   attorney!    should
take charge of prosecutions. The
dies have not thc money or organization to tollow cases up. lt would
break us; there have beeu several
murders here uud no one hus been
punished. The city cannot allord to;
go niter  these people.

The siimiw trotted uil tu .'il.e.nnei.i I fui    gathering    in      Winnipeg      next
month. He found sentirient all over
the country keenly aroused over good
rouds aad this, be believed would ensure a bumper gathering ol enthusi -
lists in the Manitoba capital. Not
only were the automobile men keenly
interested, but he found the same
SMiu.ment prevailing aniung city residents, men who bad but little occasion to use the country roads. Farmers, ul course, have all along been in
favor nf tne improved ruaus ami tne
onlj reason wbach can be advanced
why they have not taneu more ug -
gresaive measures tu secure this boon
is that they lacked concerted action.
"lt is this concerted action that
we uix; promoting by meuns of the
Canadian Highway Associatlun" remarked Mr. Kerr, " and it is very
gratifying to me tu be able to say
that we huve succeeded even beyond
our hopos. 1 have often beeu told
that I am very enthusiastic over
Coud Roads, but you will lind that
every man who hus giveu Bome
thought and study to the cjuestiou is
just as enthusiastic as 1 am. A roud
of itself is u prosaic subject aud uue
needs imaginatiuu to forsee the ttaus
formation that will result once the
ject rouds of this country have beeu
changed [rum the quagmire* to level
streets. Uecuuse the subject is so
prosaic the people have been apathetic. Only hue und there some men
stand out as keenly interested iu
roads Improvement, men who are
willing to devote tune und thought,
and money to the amelioration of
conditions. It Ib the subject of the
Canadian Highway Association to
band these men together aud to use
this union u» u torce whereby the will
of the people can be guided und direct
ed in the right channel."
"What will be the attendance at
your Winnipeg convention." Mr. Kerr
was asked.
"lt is really too early to make an
estimute" was the president's answer
"We expect to have representatives
from u lurge number ol Uourds ol
Trade, chambers of Commerce, Progress Clubs, City Councils, Automobile Clubs and Good Roads Associations. Arrangements have been mude
fur these accredited representatives to
be given a voice in all discussiuns,
and debates. The meetings will be
open to every man interested iu
good roads, and every facility will bo
given all attending to take part in
the discussions. The fact that wo
have urrangvd fur a four-day convention is in Itself evidence that we expect to transact a large amount of
business. Tte program should be re-
udy for distribution this week, and
anyone interested can secure a copy
by writing to Secretary P.W. Lace,

A sensible fellow named Nasi)
With the crowd down to Howson's once dashed.
'Twas little he spent, hut when homeward he went,
lie had h night some' fine goods for his cash.
A good natured fellow named I'h It,
Took some fri n 1   to his house whein he'd met.
Ilis furniture was so swell, that ihey all shouted "Well,
You got that at Howson's,  I'll bet.
Poor Joe one line evening got mad.
Told liis wife thai liis chairs all looked had.
She said you should get them at I [owson's my pet.
Wish you would, now he does, and they're glad.
For goods that you'll find a real treat.
For goods that are sound, strong and nett.
Howson's you'll find, keep exactly that kind,
[use the kind ihat no others ean beat.
A policeman once said, Sav !  I fear,
There's a lire by that crowd, ii looks queer.
But he saw them all pop into 1 [owson's line shop.
Then he said, Oh! that's nothing new there.
No wonder so many folks call
At Howson's fine store, big and small.
His stock's a delight, while his priees are right,
And you get a si]it ire deal th  re, that's all.
