Prior to 'the charter change the council was composed of 11 members, vith a mayor elected by the'people, .ogether with a board of water com- missioners, board of parks manage- of and public works commissioners, and board of directors of the Guelph Radial Rail- way Company. The new charter provided for a council of 18, six to be elected each year for a- terifi of three years, and at the first meeting of the council each year, the mayor is elected from among the IS aldermen. The council then resolves itself into several committees for the various de- partments, while all members of the council constitute the board of direc- tors of the Guelph Company. Radial .Railway In the case of -the board of light and boat commissioners, the mayor ii one of the three members o the board, while the council appoints the other two from outside the mem bership of the council for a term o: two retiring each year. A feature of the charter Is a clause which makes the city clerk ex-offlcio a member of all committees of the council, with privilege of entering dis cussions but with no vote. His duty among other things is to recommend from time to time to the various com mittees such measures as he may deem necessary or expedient and hr. at ail times keeps the committees fully advised as to the financial or other needs of the corporation. The plan of electing the mayor Irom among the members of the coun- cil Instead of by the people direct ha: not worked out so satisfactorily in as had'heen expected, while the umutf of aldermen is so large that committees have grown unwialdly to he detriment of the working ot the administration.
