What real effect tlils will eventually have upon the peace pegotlatlons which have now been resumed at Brest-LttOTsk with the Russians, remains to he seen. There has been no fighting of r.ny particular account on any of the war fronts. The successes gained by the Italian's recently have been on a big scale, and the enemy, have suffered hea^T losses at -their hands.

It is evident that there are others - Who are of a different mind. For our part we support those who protest against any change in the present form ot voting by preijerential ballot for the office of commissioner. The plan has been iu. effect for four, elec-Istonstatid'It has never yeftaused any great inconvenience. In one case the preferential plan resulted In placing In office as a commissioner a candidate irho ran second on the first choice count to his predecessor. He was elected because, more ratepayers preferred him to ills predecessor in office. Surely there Is no one who will ay that he -was not the people's choice. Preferential balloting alone made' such a choice possible, and it fhould not he abandoned. There is something also in the protest vpiced by a citizen, as reported in' our news .columnsr that the city counclI''.iB undertaking to change the atyte ot balloting without any 'appeal to thje people as to whether they wished a change to be made. . When the people of Lethhridge were considering the adoption of commission form of government, they .took a sort of plebiscite on the matter aiid it. was generally understood then that pref- .) erential balloting would go along with the system. The system is therefore a basic one which Is bound up with the cd.mmissiqn form of government, and the commissioners should con aider cai'efully before they, oft theit' own bat as it were, decide to,ask for a change without consulting the, people- It you want to see the cock of the walk go to the poultry show. ��The mayor shouldn't be afraid ot tlje preferential ballot.
