THERE was not much to be surprised at in yes- terday's -v ote. The system carriedr though the majority was small. The very majority of the burgesses 'favored the one-man scheme, but many people did not go out to vote, believing that, as the question was purely one of administration, the commissioners should have acted without waiting for a mandate from the burgesses. However, the commissioners have the voice of the people now, and can feel secure hi going ahead to make the change which 35 feJJ necessary to keep the system in operation within a reasonable expenditure lor the sendee. The people want a" market, but do not know where to put it. It appears that the Eckstorm site is favored. This was the recommendation of the market committee. The only thing left now is to establish a market, and to educate the consumers and producers to get together for mutual benefit. As for the library question, the Gait Gardens site is eliminated. Tins is likely owing to the de- sire on the part of the people to keep the Gardens intact, without cutting up to make room-for a building which, at best, would not be a very great ornament. The people feel that the garden is very well decorated for the time being. When we have a half million dollar building to find a site'for, there will lie only one choice. Strange as it may seem, the most expensive site was the favorite on the library question. This is probably due to the heavy North Lethbndge vote in favor of the 5th Avenue site. It is also hinted that the burgesses in many cases chose this site to embarrass the commissioners and further delay the construction of an institution which many, at the present time, feel to he more of a luxury than we can affpr.d. .The-vote, taking it all in all, is very pleasing, and shows greater interest in our civic adminis- tration than the Herald believed existed. On this point we are agreeably surprised. jg'Wes and states and if the vari- fferfis grades or standards into which they are di- ior the sake of convenience were identical, Tracy's criticism might have carried some, freight.

This, we hope, is tmite clear. I I1 However, to make our point still more clear, I ote would draw a parallel between grading in jation and grading in grain.

APPLICANTS SHOULD BE ADVERTISED FOR, THAT the mailer ot Ihe filling in of vacancies on the city staff without advertising the same js evidently rankling in the minds 'of certain of the community was evidenced by a circular re- ferred to yesterday. Its particular relation to. Ihe voting on the one-man-one-car proposal, on which it was presumably intended to have a bear- ing, is not easy In perceiv But is a matter ot inconsequence The fact remains that the a'c'tib'n'of the com- missioners in filling the vacancies .of city clerk and street superintendent, without advertising for applicants for the same, has laid itself open to question. And rightly so. No matter whether the final selections for the offices would have been 'the same, those desirous of sending in their claims and qualifications for the positions should have been accorded ihe opportunity. Public offices, with salaries paid by the public, should be made open to public competition. This is a good democratic rule, and procedure other- wise sayors of bureaucracy, to say nothing ot the suspicion of favoritism which it is apt to foster. The commissioners would do well to bear Ibis in mind in dealing with future vacancies, and ,so, in popular language, give every man a chance.
