Kubelik Operated Upon A report reached New York this week that .Ian Kubelik, the famous Bohemian violinist, was taken ill with appendicitis on his European torn-. An operation 'was performed and as far as could be ascertained the violinist's condition is favoratile. The consideration of the initiative referendum and recall look up great deal of time, and these clauses were finally passed as drafted. Married Women and Tenants No sooner had the special meeting come to order last night than Aid Ashcroft was on his feet protesting against tho action taken at the last meeting in extending the franchise to married women property owners. Aid. Ashcroft declared under .this rule, men who turned property over to their wives would be disfranchised and the wlto would vote In his stead. "That would be all wrong. Jt should be left as now, and tho husband should exercise tho franchise even if ids wife does hold the property in her vame." Aid. think It would he unwise to make the -franchise.too lib. crah Under commission government we are to have but three men! want the .best. If we put th election into the hands of tenant who have really-no financial Interes in the election will be pu into the hands of men who, having n money interest, will be more liabl to vote on sentiment or as askoi Under the new charter Stafford vil age will likely be a part of the clt) and by extending the franchise t tenants we will allow a lot of foreign era to vote, and we would bc'llable to get men into office who are after the salary and nothing else. "1 believe the clause-referred to is a fair franchise as it is Jiow. It al lows any person, male or. female, to is assessed on the last re- vised assessment roll as ,owner of freehold property to the.exteut of 1200 Then only actual assessed taxpayers would be entitled to vote." Aid. Bowman had stirred up -the old question of the tenants, and for a few minutes there was some oross- liring. Aid- elect do not think the foreign element Aid.

The ,e.'vlcc finished the superior ?ald. "Now, Sig-i nor Porpora. 'what do yon think of the j organist'.'" replied Porpora.! interrupted the prior, "he is a clever man. isn't liK-owis? he is a good pure and I simple." "Oh: as lor his simplicity." said Porpora, "1 gram you that, tor his left hand knowellt not what his! right hand Etude. is. ion governments can extend the fran- chise so universally as they do, I do not see why the city government, of much less Importance, should restrict as they have been doing. The foreign element and tenants vote on Provin- cial and Dominion matters. Let them have a voice in city affairs. 1 stand pat for the franchise for tenants." Aid. must remem- ber, however, that it is harder to get the franchise for voting for provincial purposes than for the city, provided we were to allow tenants to vote. The Provincial voter must satisfy the en- umerator as to naturalization and re- iiJu'o to to "valiTo- at The Recall The most drastic lesislatlon and at the same time the most advanced provided for in the new charter IB the Initiative, referendum and recall This portion of the charter was taken up In connection with the election procedure. The recall was lint considered The charter, as It stood, provided that 16 per cent, of the total vote at the last election, boforo recall pro- ceedings were being taken, must sign the petition for recall, setting forth the reason for such action. The Ques- tion arose: "Is IB per cent, enough Aid. favor 20 per cent." Aid. per cent IE enough." Aid. Bowman rather favor 25 per cent. Fifteen or 20 per cent, are oo small and would tend to keep the lot boiling." Aid. Al.-d favored 25 per csnt. Then Aid. Bowman thought prob- bly 25 per cent, was ami 5 por cent, would be enough as (he ote at'any time is never more than he-third the actual number of u the list. Tho 16 per cent, cluuae waa -event- ually adopted. There was also some discussion as to whether a commissioner should be allowed to be recalled before being in office three months. This it provided. In some of the American charters. It Is not in St. John. It was ahuwn that no man could be recalled before 40 days after recall proceedings are instituted. .The petition for recall is in the hands of the city clerk for 10 days before being presented to the council. The council is required to give. 30 days' notice of such making la all 40 days. The couell therefore decided that the recall clauses as drafted should stand. The referendum and initiative clauses were also adopted as drafted. The discussion of that title of- the charter dealing with legislative juris- diction, setting forth the legislative powers of the city, as embodied in he commissioners was then, taken up. Bonus Legiilated Out Olio of the first stumbling blocks ncountered in the consideration of his title was the clause: "Exempting from taxation beyond re current year, subscribing for lock In, or guaranteeing the pay- ment of debentures, Issued by :any person, syndicate or company In re- spect of any industrial, commercial, engineering and granting to any person, syndicate or company 'water, light or power for in connection-with any such UG-- dertaking at a reduced rate." v This clause brought up the old ques- tion of guaranteeing bonds of com- panies.
