Communications under this heading must bear the signatures THE CITY GOVERNMENT Editor Herald Dear the report is true which is in circulation that Hard ie to resign his position as Mayor of this city in tho near future I believe tho matter of selecting his successor should bo considered ser iously by the people of this I am a believer In a democratic form of and believe the people of this city should adopt it at tho earliest possible and am in favor of sel ecting a successor to Mayor Hardie who will pledge himself to bring about the change at an early date Democratic means rule by the it means a govern ment by which the people governed are adequately and sufficiently repre present form of city gov ornment is not because the people governed have not ado quate or sufficient representation ii This war is being fought to savo democracy which means to savo the people the right to rule and if it is the best form of governmentto rule u atata or it is surely the best form of government to rule a It is not tho duty of tho present commissioners to initiate n change of city why should they Did you over know of a man who would admit that he hud too much authority and asked for It to be divided It Is up to the people of this city io initiate tho if they desire by selecting a successor to Mayor pledged to bring the change It is not necessary for me to attempt to educate tho people of this city as to the merits of a democratic form of city as there is nothing mysterious about most of us have noticed that we havo not hud much voico in governing our citys affairs during tho present govern ments unless wo happened to bn one of tho delegation which was invited to decide Issues in tho city in which all taxpayers of this city were and should huvo had a I did not em power any of these delegates to act for did you Under a democratic form of city government every Issue pertaining to tho city will be decided by our rep ruBontattves whom we elect and deler gate authority to represent I believe that there has been suffic ient defects shown on the surface of the present form of city government to warrant u and the most effective and quickest way to bring change is to
