On May 7, 1912 Herman McInnes resigned from Edmonton City Council. One week later, on May 14, Charles Gowan did the same. On June 7, a by-election was held to replace both aldermen. The first place candidate would replace Gowan, who had been elected to a two year term in February, while the second place candidate would replace McInnis, who had been elected to a one year term. In addition, eight bylaws were put to the electorate on the same ballot.
