LET THE RATEPAYERS HAVE A MEETING The suggestion made by some in- terested ratepayers that an annual ratepayers' meeting should be called sometime before the municipal elec- tion is a good one. The annual ratepayers' meeting was an institution before commission- form government went into effect. It the big meeting of the year when In this regard there lias been the grossest discrimination against the Liberals, in keeping with a deliberate- ly-formulated policy of party advant- ase by patronage and favoritism. Neither, so far as the public is aware, was there any consultation on the part of tbe Borden government with Sir Wilfrid and his associates when the number of men to be provid- ed by Canada was fixed at half a mil- lion." That creditable offer Sir Robert and his colleagues claimed and took full credit for, not without a measure of ostentation. Today with, say, 000 men unlisted, more men still to be supplied, the tug comes. It is extremely difficult to get this residue so long as the re-1 sources of Quebec are insufficiently tapped. A director of National Ser- vice is appointed, again, so far as the government's sole ___sad of giving this official the power to name his own representatives in the various military districts, the government re- tains this right. These appointments are put in the class of political prizes to be given to party friends. In Mili- tary District No. 10 an active Conser- vative of no particular general stand- ing is appointed. He may prove to be competent, but certainly he comes to his work with no advantage of prestige. It was to have heen expect- __ __ cd that a notably outstanding man he around. That is wh.t I. Se needed, so let us have the meeting, by I sir Thomas Tail, re- the civic authorities faced the people i resp0nsibility. Instead of giving this in their official capacity and gave an n. account ot their stewardship. It gave the authorities a chance to explain. and the ratepayers a chance to asfe questions. If there-is one objection at all to commission form of government, it is that the administration tends to grow- away from the people, and interest in civic affairs is lost. H the ratepayers' meeting now suggested is held, inter- all means.
