The vote last night furnished one or two surprises. Cote, who made the tolg speech against tGe Sifton bill the other day, voted with the administra- tion. Puffer jumped to the opposition side, and also Stauffer. The division, however, displayed the fact that Sift- on has a sound majority at his com- mand at any time, and there is ve.ry llttle likelihood of further fighting on tne estimates when they are in com- mittee. Premier Explains Policy The premier made a lengthy speech in which explained his policy in Jull. It was, after all, he said, a ques- tion of expediency. There were pub- lic buildings and other undertakings which had been projected by the late government which had to be carried through, and this would use up most of the money that was not utilized in meeting the, immediate obligations of the province. The estimates cf 1S11, he said, were prepared with a view to economy, hav- ing in mind the actual needs of the province, and completion of such pub- buildings as already had been com- menced and as were of immediate necessity. No further buildings than, tnese were provided for, and there j would be no more court houses pro- vided for until a redistribution of the judicial districts had 'been made- Parliament Buildings The premier went on to show the parliament buildings, estimated by the old government to cost now cost to complete uuu, aiid that the furnishings would j this amount to There was appropriation on the buildings fcr next year of which would i complete one wing or: the building ready for occupancy. j (Continued on page Sixty-six over Requited Lethbritee Went Back on '._ T: V the Poll-All the CandiSesSpt T.

The Commission Vote The vote in favor cf government by commission carried by a majority of 66 over -the reouired- two-thirds "of the total vote and a, majority of 372 the number of votes polled in opposi- tion to the proposed change, the total vote being 546 .in favor and 174 against. Thus the people have spoken decisively in favor of a change from the present aldermaiiic system to that of government by commission. A connirhas Tigt yet been niacie on the plebiscite submitted to the ratepayers through the-mail with reference to the various forms of government by com- mission, but this count will be ma-cle within the next few days, after "which it will be known just what particular form of commission is favored. It is now. up to the new council to draft amendments to the municipal charter along the lines suggested in the pleb- iscite. Aldermanic Results In the aldermanic race the result was pretty much as anticipated by the majority of men on the street. amount' of on the chances 'r-r another- that represented the'voting senti- ment .of the-ratepayers is now' quite 'evident.

King's splendid snowing in the North where he headed the poll, including the mayoralty candidates, was a great sur- prise to the general public. James Asherort polled "about his' usual vote, and along with King was a good ner up. Dr. Rusk was not conceded much chance, but-he. pulled out ahead of Tuckwell and Aid.-Hatch, the latter' polling an astonishingly low vote as a result- of- which he- trailed the field Mackenzie's supporters-were keenly disappointed with the returns in the JNorth Ward.
