Box 1979 Phone 1291 WEST POCKET TALKS ON THE V NEW CITY CHARTER 2._ANOTHER PLEBISCITE TO. BE TAKEN Unneeded Advice CITT OF HULL'there has arisen a dispute between the Electric Railway Company ant Us employees, wjth a consequent ap- peal-' to the, Dominion conciliation board to settle the differences. This has resulted in an award of the two cents demanded by the conductors and motorinen. So far so good, but there follows ;the strange -advice given .by the arbi- trator, that the -company .would be in increasing its fares to offset. extra expense it would have to undergo. In plain words, the public .of to.be fleeced so that the company should not suffer, though the was none of theirs. The' '.public, as they are'wont'to'- be called, bears out truly :m this instance 'the. force of the de- sigriation; Aaid. not'only" in this, but in all similar disputes it is after all the public "who really suffer. This does not exactly go -with the theory "of m'Satis shonli be devised so that-those who havi had no part in a quarrel should havi to Here is something in the way p effecting' a {fair economic arrange ment which 'should engage the minds of the authorities. "It certainly calls for some legislation. Whatever the rights or wrongs of a quarrel be 'tween employers and employees, the decision of a conciliation beard shoulc have some proviso, that in the carry ing out jpf its award the party no1 prior to the-dispute.should'be saved from any', pecuniary inconvenience.' The problem, no doubt, would be a hard matter, to solve, brit still it is not it is after all the determining of what should be a reasonable profit.

Keep Up the Good Work IN DECIDING to affiliate cncemore with the Associated Boards of r Trade of Southern Alberta for 1913, the local Board of Trade made a wise move. Although the central organization is in its -.infancy, :and although its sphere of influence along certain lines of endeavor is neces- limited, the report of the com- tbe city council 'commenced to consider the new charter. Little .progress had been made, however, before the Ques- tion-was raised as to whether: or not the citizens two years ago had voted in favor of the commission, .plan. Ad- vocates of the commission plan sug- gested that .if the council had any doubt m their minds, up-harm-could be done by -matter to the ratepayers once again-in as clear a form as possible. And this step, is in entire conformity .with the ideas of direct legislation, the outstanding feature of which is that .whenever the ratepayers indicate "oy ..petition that they wish the opportunity to do so, they shall have the right to pass upon all matters of importance. The council adopted the suggestion and at the municipal election on December flth the ratepayers will have an opportunity of answering the following three questions: 1. Is a change In the present form of city government desirable? i 1 2. If a change is shall t take the form of three commis- sioners appointed by, and responsi- ble to the council, which shall remain is it is? or 3i If a change, is desirable, shall t take the form of a commission or council of three elected by the rate- payers by means of the initiative re- The .work of -preparing the ne'w .charter the legis- lature is, however, to be continued in the meantime. "There is yet much work to be; done it. As it stands, the draft .about one- third completed. Many new chapters have yet to be prepared and at teast two-thirds of the existing charter changed in arrangement and wording in order fullest effect to the proposed 'chaliges and not to render them abortive.. The -legisla- ture meets in-.February, and if an- other year, or i perhaps two, ere not to ibe lost the new charter MUST be completed before the end of the pi ent year.
