can be se cured by the present plan of govern ment by hoard of control and alder Apparently in Hamilton there appears to be no recognized division of labor between the two for the Herald as a smoothing nf the duties of the controllers should be executive and ami those of the alder men legislative and In view 6f the new form of civic government which will engage the attention the ratepayers
