Mr. McAdoo has ordered that the under-river tubes of the Pennsylvania Kailroad. which have been heretofore used practically for passenger service only, be used for coal trains, and that ( these coal trains be given preference j over passenger trains. The astonish- i Ing statement is made that this order of "Mr. McAdoo's will mean a saving of from three to seven day* in distributing coal to consumers. In this instance government operation was we!? worth while. There are countless cases, no doubt, where government operation will work to similar advantage. Washington. Jan. SecroUary of ( War linker today replied to Senator! Chamberlain's charges of inefficiency! in the war department, at a public! hearing before the senate military f committee. The secretary began mah-j ing a verbal statement without manuscript. Mr. Baker said his statement w^s1 not exactly supplementary to his recent que to the. committee but a comprehensive statement of all army activities in Die war. especially replying to the charge that the war department had "fallen down." * The mistakes cited in Senator Chamberlain's speech. Secretary Baker declared, gave a disproportionat aspect. Without intent, he said, the eftoct of the senator's speech was to give the impression that the deficiencies "were characteristic rather than occasional.'' lie said ho was not there to defend individuals or den\ delays aud false starts. "But 1 think 1 can say in confidence that in them we have sought the remedy."

Suppose A..B, C and D were running L- for the office of commissioner of public works of the city of Lethbridge. The satisfactory election would be one in which^more than 50 percent of the electors chose one man. That would leave no doubt about the people's choice. This result mjght be secured by the straight ballot provided one man were capable enough and popular enough. But if more than 50 per cent of the people did not choose any one candidate in an, election under the old ballot system, the ideaE course to take would be to have the low man drop out and allow the people to vote on the three remaining. Should one of the three not receive more than 50 per- ticle more.
