Our equitable climate has placed be
fore us a glorious season for foot-ball,
and preparations should be at once made
to fit our local aggregation for the return

the city of New Westminster. He
is a jeweler by trade and one of the
most respected citizens of the town.
Outside of it his twgLSqns are probably more famous than he has been
hitherto, as they are well known
players of the champion lacrosse
team of Canada. Mi\T5lfford has the
record of never having been defeated
in any contest and has done gocd
s.-rvice as an alderman and trustee.
He has been repeatedly asked to
run as mayor of the city and is recognized as an invaluable man of
business on committees and in the
council. As regards the interests
of the constituency the people of the
city are all satisfied that a wise
choice has been made. Socially
Mr. Gifford is intencely popular.
Of all social gatherings iu connection with the Presbyterian church
of which he is an active member
and other organizations, he is the
very life and soul. In manner he
is direct and unassuming. New
Westminster has picked good timber to make a popular and useful
member of the legislature whose
qualities of character will be widely
recognized.
