COMMISSION IDEA GROWING. COJUIISSION form of government is growing. In Ed- inonlnn, William Short, ono of the-leading men of Hie city- ,-nnil i-ecognized as one of (he ablest lawyers io. the provinces, was .defeated in a straight fight on the issue of aldennanic versus commission rule. Mr. Short was recognized as the father of the present ciiarter in Edmonton, and had the support of the three .'daily papers. The merits and demerits of commission govern- men I were discussed.on the platform.and when the smoke of 'battle had cleared away it was'seen that the champion of the modern W. J; a lufmer.niayor of Wetaski- win, was. victorious. The successful candidate is pledged to in- traduce commission goYefnmenl5vyilhip..a year, providing it is endorsed by the people! on.p. plebiscite, In view of the result of :'.Monday's election there is little doubt but that Hie principle will be endorsed when the bpporiuniiy'offers. v .-This step on the part of Edition ton makes it all the more no :niistakcs.

If you arc. not wise to this comment, write a letter to Ihe new mayor anil ask him. to explain, One of the peculiar, surprises about Monday's eleclion was that the man who was looked upon as a victim of defeat was the only person to be chosen on the first ballot.

It is charged l il is Ihe mosi depraved part'of thai province, due the inability of the people who. have lived there for years to make ,a livelihood off the land. In one. inslance a farm of one hundred jicrcs was sold for six bushels of turnips. This piece of country ..includes a great porlion of HaMnirton, and the northern'parts '.of.
