Of the fifty enemy machines vaiHiuished this year, thirty-two have fallen before him in tho same airplane which is a spad-hlspano biplane with two machino guns. This constitutes a record for one machine. Between July IG and July 22 he felled eleven enemy machines, nine of which already have been officially accounted for. On July IC, whllo stationed in tho Sonime, ho was ordered to report to the Champagne. He left lor Paris that day at 10 o'clock. He lunched there and set back for the THE CITY GOVERNMENT Editor Herald: Dear Sir:-If tho report is true which is In circulation that Mr. Hard-io intends, to resign his position as Mayor of this city in the near future; 1 believe tho matter of selecting his successor should bo considered seriously by tho people of this city. I nm a believer in a democratic form of government, and bcliovo tho people of this city should adopt It at tho earliest possible date, and am In favor of selecting a successor to Mayor Hardie who will pledge himself to bring about the change at an early date. Democratic government, means "rule by the peoplo"; it means a government by which the peoplo governed are adequately and sufriciently represented. Our, present form of city 'gov ernment Is not democratic, beiyiuse the people governed have not adequate or sufficient representation in it. This war is being fought to s.avo democracy which means "to savo tho peoplo the right to rule" and if it is the best form-of government'to rule a nation, statei or province. It 'is surely tho best form of government to rule a city. It is not tho duty of the present commissioners to initiate a change of city govornmont, why should they'? Did you over know of . a nnm who would admit that ho hud > too much authority and asked for It to bo divided'? . Tt is up to the pooplo of this city .to initiate thn change, if they desire it, by selecting a successor to Mayor Hardie, pledged to bring tho change about. It is not necessary for mo to attempt to educate thn people of this city as to tho merits of a democratic J'orni of city govornmont, as thoro is nothing jnysteriouH about it, most of UB havo noticed that we have not hud much voico in governing our city's affairs during tho prosout govern-ment's regime, unless wo happened to bn one of tho dolegnllon which was invited to decide Issues in tho' city government, in which all tuxpayoin of this city woro Interested, and should havo had ii voice. I did not empower any of those dolegatos to act j'or me, did you? Under a democratic form of city government ovory ''Issue portalulng to tho city will bo decided by our rep-. rogontatives whoin wo elect nml dolo'-gato .with authority to represent us. I bellovo that there'has been sufficient defects shown on the surface of the present form of city govornmont to warrant a chuugG, and tha most offoctlve (ind qulcUest way to bring tblB change mbout, In to solect a sue HAS GOOD CROP (From Our, Own CorroaDondont) Pakowki. .\ug. 2(1.-The evangelistic services which have been conducted the past three -iveeks at Glassford, I'endant D'Oreillo and Orion, by the prairio evangelist J.
