Spokane turned down a proposal to amend their chartt-r embracing the straight commission form of government by. an overwln'lining majority. The Spokesman Koview referring to the victory says: Spokane has many reasons for sntisfaclion with the results of the elections, but none greater than the vote, of confidence given by the citizens to the new charter arid government by commission. \/EST POCKET TALKS ON THE V NEW CITY CHARTER 4.-THE DUAL OR "HYBRID" FORM The Dual ContiroT IiV HA.MILTO.V, ONT.. the plan of civic governmrat Is und�r a dual system, that of aldermen and controllers. This arrangement does not appear to be working out satisfactorily. Commenting on the sltuatloni the Hamilton Herald has the foUowj Ing to say: "Unfortunately, our alderf men have, not been content to leave, the executive work to the controllers; they have Insisted on having rather more than their share of it,'and i^. in because they are disinclined to leave this work a|ying degrees of success. In Eastern Canada and the United States' the dual form has long existed, although, Instead of being called commiBsions, the secondary bodies are termed boards of control, or boards of public works. The underlying theory of the dual form is, ot course, that the two bodies act as a "check" or "balanco" to one another, and that one is a legislative and the other an executive body. Tho fault with, and chief objection to, the board ot control or appointive commission systent is that it brings about a still greater division ot authority and responsibility than that which exists under tho purely alder-maslc system,. More often than not there is a tendency to shirk responsibility and to pass it on to somebody else. The council tries to place the whole responBibillty upon tho commissioners; the latter attempt to shoulder tia much of it ns they can back on to the city council afjain. More often than not there is a perpet THE SMNDARD SECURITIES COMPANY Real Estate and iDvestments OWNERS OF MORNINGSIDE Suite 111 to 115 Sherlock Building P.O. Box 1979 Phone 1291 ual friction between the two bodies (vide Calgary), and the untorttinato ratepayers have a harder time than even when they attempt to fix the blame for mismanagement. . The Ills attendant upon the, purely aldermanic system are not remedied by an appointive commission; they are only intensified. The theory that one body acts ns a "check" or "balance", to' the other in practice amounts to nothing better than a, "i)(�jSinJ 2)ff" ,jq| tl>V.'^�",hcil against J yh|^'|coiJip^ssl^ners,'.yiti the commissioners, against Ihie council, which �ifi/|6t'?rfe?i5lt in anything else but ineflldicmci.; .Vai�4,'that imbecility so often to be ob'served iii Civic administration. It is only when a man ot surpassing strength gets Into tho riinyar's chair, andfor a period absolutely domiiiates both bodies that, under this system, any success is possible. It may sometimes, .but very seldom, happen that the dual system is more efficient tWn is the- purely aldermanic couWfclt,"but it is'so infinitely inferior, btf^li iti tHtlory and practice, to the direct commission plan that, bearing in mind the latter will not cost them one cent more, it is al most inconceivable that the people of Lethbrldge will on December 9th knowingly vote '!yes" to question No. two., ^ Art'bltlous R.
