As it is now, if the people have reasons for opposing the re-election of any one member of the council, the other two aldermen have to undergo expense and trouble of another election although the people are anx- ious to retain their services. Every membor oi thc council should- not thus be forced to answer for the sins of one or more of the other members. Every man should be elected by him self and on his own merits. It often happens that in-their ef i to1 defeat an .undesirable ca'ndi date the electors "plump" for an- other and by so1 doing cause the de- feat of a very desirable candidate. If every alderman felt that faithful ser- vice would win election by acclam- ation, more good men, are A ing to serve the city bnt object to the turmoil, bitternessv of an election, would serve on our coun- cils.' The; proposed system would do with clique rule and prevent the introduction.of party politics into municipal affaire, as is so common in the older provinces. This is not the ward syatem which is even_more iniquitous than "that now in use, 'for it tends lo narrow- ness of policy and makes sectional feelings with resulting jealousies. The Provincial Government made some very important amendments to the Compensation Act. The height of buildings to which the.act applies is reduced.from 40 to 30 feet. The clause which formerly provided that where injury is attributable to serious :ml wilful misconduct -of the work- men, compensation is only to be paid in case of death, is amended by making it included "death or total disability."
