In regard to the present form If government his great objection to It was that it was a triumvirate. ..It was a affair and travesty of democratic principles. He ventured, that in the commission [orhis of government going, there )vas no instance in which there were three commissioners. Here Mayor Hardie interrupted in saying that there were more than six hun- dred forms of commission govern- jnent going, and in these there were fcases of only three commissioners. Dr. Conybeare however persisted In his argument that the weakness of the present system was the smallness of Ihe council. Unless the nymber of Ihe council is increased, he maintain- ed that it was not possible to get a lemocratic form of government. In (ontending. that the appointment of the' committee was not in accordance With the will of the people, as express- ed in the plebiscite, he said that it may get to the point that Ihe people Irilr demand a committee appointed by themselves to go into the matter bf managerial form of government solely. It was quite possible that there may be the inference that the Commissioners wore "wedded to the present form ot government, in the tact which lent itself, to It that the tommittee was appointed by the com- Uissionem. This led to a disclaimer by Mayor Hardie who that sa far as he was concerned he wan not wedded to It. He had voted for the managerial form of government and believed in BIO Dayton, Ohio, njan.
