In a town possessing its own electric light and water sys- tems tho management of sue- public utilities must require the best ability and increasing attention, and such service should be recompensed just as much as that of the auditors or other officials. Our contemporary says'- "Such men administer the department of light and water in a systematic and j j economical manner, and in thu best interests of our town. It would re- quire only a portion of their time, but receiving remuneration, and be- ing conscientious men, they would give service, and the result would be cwoful attention and nuinagcnient. and economy oi" administration. the end the town would ho gainer better service. This ninn would ,-iiso' j rdicve the pressure of committee work, which is sometimes a task, up- on the time of councillors.
