Are we so much better disciplin- ed than the Greeks? Anyone who wit- nessed the exhibition of passion and unreason in the .Majestic on Tuesdaj evening, might well question the dom of removing all restraints on tile impulsive action of the people. As lo the Oregon experience, opin lens differ. Prof. Shippel, who is on the ground, assures us that direct leg- islation is nic-rely hi the experimental stage, and thai, as yet, no conclusions is to the success of the scheme are As to tiic results in Switz erland. the most authoritative state- ment is that contained In the IdOD ro- lort of the United States vice-consul it Berne. This report is distinctly un- riendly. The observation of the vice- is that the useful legislation iriginates in the Switzerland Congress md not In the Initiative. The signs of the times seem, to In- icate that a reaction has set in ag- ainst direct legislation. In Oe.s Maine and in other cities and in Oregon there appears to he a growing uemaii. for a return to representative govern ment, and In our country Premier Whitney and iioblin have nmiouncee their opposition to direct legislation Edmonton has decided not to include the Initiative, Referendum and Recall in its constitution.

Fellow Elector Again 1 solicit your voto for an Al- dermauio seat. Tlirco years ago yon thought Jit to exalt mo, beyond my fondest oxpoclit- lions. This year I had no intention ol! offering you my poor service, but I can- not resist the c-al! of Ihoso whom I bo- liove to be my sinc-ere friends and whom 1 know lo he devoted citizens of Leth- bridge. The first plank in my plat- form in was "Civic government hy a commission of three." In 1910 (Jity Solicitor Conyhcare and myself were appointed to draw up the ground- work lor a plebiscite on the question. Along with Mr. Manwaring ,wc did so, and although the result of our work is- not yet seen, he it remembered that the foundation is the most important part of every structure, oven although the foundation remains unseen. My policy in this matter is not changed; in other matters I promise you nothing beyond serving you from day to day, as' you would be served. Take me as you know me. or throw mo clown if you think it in the best in- lerests of our city to do so. Yours to command, ROBERT SAGE To the Electors of the City ofLelhbridge I am offering myself as a candidate for al- dermanic honors in the forthcoming muni- cipal for these reasons: I am an absolute believer in ,the straight commission form of government, ;with thcHriitjativc, referendum amlTeealL am convinced that the ap- pointment of an independent board of police commissioners is an immediate and absolute necessity in this city. 'n judgment- tbc'niost important work for the rjbuuci] of 1913, will be the carryino- put of the above named reforms. if elected I shall serve the interests of the citi- zens with as much energy and intelligence as I a pply to my own business. If this statement of my views and position appeals to your good judgment I ask for your support in my campaign and your vote on election day. L.

Cily because the citizens under'the most trying terms that.a plebiscite voto could he taken on three distinct occasions pro- nounced themselves, by a large majority in lavor of STRAIGHT Commission Govern- ment and because at the last two municipal elections practically every member of the Council was pledged to give tho City coinmis- sion form of government at the earliest pos- sible moment. The present council- practi- cally.ignoral the plcbiscic and. the individual pledges by only beginning to consider the Acw Charter at the last moment'and then throwing up its hands on the psoudo excuse that it did not know what the people-wanted. We have the impression that this is only a ruse to sidetrack the question of Commission Gov- ernment. This is not a personal matter with us. We have no inurbane feeling towards anyone in (Ins connection and are only endeavorum- to .further the interest of the city as sec the necessity, for a change in the System ol City Government. _ shall be glad'to meet and discuss our views with any ratepayer at his or her con- venience. The door of our borne is open to all at all times to anyone Avho wishes to see us .in rcsp'ect to our .platform or any other matter. stand for a Police Commission, as advocated, by the city press, composed of'the Mayor, the .District Judge, and the Police Magistrate. stand for BOOSTING and are strongly opposed to BOOMING our city. stand for progressive, but economi- cal government. stand for a close scrutiny of all fin- ancial aH'aivs and complete publicity .in all accounting in all departments, independent- ly-; and in relation to each other. stand for Commission as it is practically in effect today and giving splendid results in the city, of'DCS .la., with such few alterations as would better suit Lethbridge conditions. Briefly it is as follows: Three independent commissioners or superintendents elected directly by the people, subject to the EE- OALL. The three commissioners jointly, are an advisory committee to each one of the three departments. .For Legislative purposes the three commissioners automatically be- come a board of aldermen. All legislation is subjct to the INITIATIVE and the REFER- ENDUM. Under these conditions the rate-' payers have control all the in the Aldermanic System the ratepayers have absolutely no say or control excepting on election day. By this system we have direct responsibility fixed on each commissioner singly and on the jointly, so that there can be no "craw-fishing" or shunting blame. If there is any virtue in fife Aldermanic System, we rein in enough of it to let these virtues have full sway. YOURS W. D. L.
