According to ilm electrical atiperlu- tt-ndeut, defective electrical systems a i this season of tbe year are render- ed more dangerous on account of the amount of readily combustible, material jireseut. For tills reason ninny cities, which have suffered from disastrous fires orlBiualiug in Christ- mas decorations, have adopted string- ent rules, governing the installation of such displays, and the use of cot- ton batting and other highly Inflant inuble material in connection there- with is prohibited. While the protection of shoppers against tile dangers of fire and panic- is naturally a question of prime JIra- the evil effect which a fire scare might have tpon Christmas trading would appear to furnish an ad- ditional reason (if a selfish one) for the active co-operation of all mer- chants with the electrical superintend- ent, in his efforts to prevent danger- ous installations.

Heretofore, non-British citizens re- silling in Lethbridg'c have had the pri- vilege of exercising the franchise on municipal matters. They have had the game status as British subjects al such elections, the only requirement being the owning of property in the city. It has been held that, since they i owned property, and paid taxes direct to the citly, they should be given a voice in the government of the city. Hut the same rule does not apply in plenty of other cities in Canada. In Toronto, for instance, none but Brit- ish subjects can exercise the frau- cliise at municipal elections. Accord-1 ins to information received by the i Herald that is the general rule. in order to bold public of- fice in the city, that is, in order to be elected to the office of mayor, alder- man, or school irustee, the candidate must be a British subject. South of the boundary line, none but a naturalized American subject can exercise the franchise at any el- ection, Federal, state or imiiilciptil, I stairway which leads the "whether an owner of property or not.
