Lethbridge RECTOR INDUCTED AT TABER CHURCH Tabcr, Nov. Day and Hallowe'en passed very quietly here, most of the business houses be- ing closed. The tennis courts were well patronized all -day the Avcather being fine, with no wind. This evening Bishop of Calgary, conducted divine service in St. Theodore's, church, when he in- ducted the Re-v. A. H. Ransom, as rector of the parish, and also con- firmed a number of candidates, among whom was Miss Evelyn Truewell, whose parents were both confirmed many years ago by Bishop Pinkham, just after he had been appointed to the Bishopric. Bishop Pinkham was accompanied on his visit by the Rev. W. Henderson, of Bow Island, and Rev. M. Jerrold, of Irvine. in connection with civic administra- tion. They'are .paid reasonable salar- ies for that portion of their -time which they may find it necessary to de- vote to municipal matters, and, where tried, have, so far as I can learn, j Deen able to far more than save the amount of their salaries in the minor economies effected alone, to say noth- ing whatever, of tile savings effected, in larger matters. under the commission plan the rairs of a city are conducted on strict principles. Each commis- sioner is held directly responsible for the department under his control, while the commissioners, as a whole "are responsible for all departments, conferences, open to the public, are regularly held, and there is not, nor can there be. any shirking or transfer- ring of responsibilities. Full civic re- ports are published monthly, as annually, and if .any errors arejcom- fmitted they are easy to locate.- The Element of Time The fear has -been expressed' that under tne'-commission form of admin- istration, with its biennial elections, the people might be surrendering them selves into the hands of .the commis- sioners for too long a time, and that tney might become tnat there is a possibility of their ab- andoning, to an "extent, the democratic principle of self-government. wow, in Galveston-. Texas, the orig- inal home of commission government, wnere. the charter does not em-brace me "referendum" and 'recall'' features, there is a remote possibility of such 'being the result, although as a matter of fact, -during the nine in which that city has Deen governed by a commission of five Business men, its. civic affairs have Deen so satisfactorily managed as to excrie the admiration and envy of ev- en- community on this continent. Ths results in G-alveston. as is generally Known, have 'been little short of mar- veiious. .But if we copied the laws of the state of Iowa, with the re-j lerenaum. and recall clauses, we would be making dotfbly sure -that the apprehension which is expressed would be 'tiuite impossible of realization. The lowa commission laws appear to be the most democratic that it is pos- sible to conceive. The Recall Cnder our present municipal act, no matter how unfit or incapable an alder man or member ot" a board'of control may prove; he cannot be retired until his term of office expires. Under lowa commission laws any or all jof the commissioners may be "recall- ed." or discharged, for cause, at any time, the only step necessary being the presentation to the city clerk of a petition signed by a number oL" elec- tors equal :to -5 per cent, of those who-voted at the last mayoral contest, and if the commissioner against whom tne complaint has been lodged does not voluntarily retire (in which case a substitute is appointed by the re- maining a special el- errect unUl ten .days after 'their enact- ment, during wbica tim'e'they must be lert open for If in tne meantime cent, of the vot- ers petition against their passage, .un- less repealed, tne questions involved are decided- upon by the people at a special election. A very democratic proceeding, it must be conceded. The. Initiative On the other -hand, if. U5 per cent, ot" tne electors petition for any given tmng, and the commissioners do not enact. it" inside of twenty days, they can. be compelled to do so 'by imme- diate popular' vote.
