In any event the citizens have never been asked for an expression of opto-iim, ami 1 cannot, see where the commissioners have any mandate to arrogate to themselves the right to make a charter amendment of this kind.

It is pointed out that there is quite a popular demand now for proportional representation. Preferential balloting does not give this but it is a step in that direction, according to the Herald's' informant. Apples of Superior Quality Such are the-ones we are selling. Wagner?.
