Secondly, it is the intention to .show that the full commission "form" "of irnnient is In reality far more in keep- ing with British governmental tradi- tions than with American traditions, and that: the dual system, some would'; 'foist upon is entirely out of harmony 'with British ideals, arid follows'closely on the original Amer- ican system.

Whitney Block Lethbndge ing out upon the future as to their I capacity for governing cities, in a 'spirit of'profound skepticism. The opinion, was rapidly beginning to gain ground, that democracy, as it existed in the States, was a failure.---There were occasional popular -uprisings agatnst the increasing power of ward politicians, and against the inefficiency and general incapacity manifest-in the government of cities, but these effects were spasmodic and were almost in- variably followed, by reaction and the reinstatement of objectional' politic- ians in power. The-net result was to cause people to lose almost all nope of ever securing 'a better" condi- tion of affairs. In the eighties and nineties Dr. Albert Shaw, editor of the American Review of Reviews, and other publicists, made trips to.Europe J PERCENTAGE INCREASED Montreal. Nov. is very prob- able that the Montreal Arena -Company will give professional nockey clubs a larger percentage of the gate receipts more directly responsible to the peo- ple, -when a member is-.taken'into the cabinet, 'before-be can take his seat, he'must go back to the people receive their endorsation in the of a majority of the votes in his con- stituency. The. point are coming to is this. The system of commission govern- ment, which we are endeavoring to obtain' and in which the executives are responsible direct to the people, is completely in keeping with the prin- ciples of the British system of govem- not with the .American. And also that the dual system which some would foist upon us, and in there, are two distinct and separated bodies, tile legislature, so; called, and the as well as altogether un-Brit- investigatmg and reporting conditions jsh-and has its almost exact parallel in British and other European cities: Uteir reports demonstrated beyond all doubt the failure of American cities to measure up to their responsibili- ties. This only caused the spirit of self condemnation in the "United Stales, to become more and more acute, iml.il it gradually ripened into a pessimism bordering on national cynicism. But underneath the leaven was, working that is destined to re- generate city ;overnm Shara in the in the American system 'in which, the legislative and executive branches of government are separate and distinct. A Modern Witanagemot now to the third division of the subject. In order to show thai tfie. initiative, referendum and recall, probably the most important features of the commission plan, are not for- eign to British ideas and British insti- [the people, .for'the individuals that j composed their tribes or nations. In I the Roman system the land was par- celled out amongst generals and rulers Under the Saxon system all land was held by the people in "common. In the Kbman'.system .liberty was-a privilege granted, and people -were slaves .unal they showed themselves- fit, in the. opinion, of ruling- classes, to granted "liber ty..-_ Under the Saxon system" freedom 'was the birthright of every man and no man could be deprived of it until proven guilty of some crime or men..

And now the battle is almost finished. .Almost, finished, because the whole people-do not yet quite rule as they did in-the: days of the Witan- agemot. The representative, system does not- quite -give the, people absolute control over their own affairs: For under it, as everyone knows, govern- ments are'able, and often do pass leg- islation ,and .enactments, adopt meas- ures" or 'fail to adopt th'eir own of public opinion. Direct legislation, the init- iative, referendum, and recall, will do away with all of this. It is a simple piece of machinery for giving the people the absolute control over their own affairs as they had under the Wit- anagemot. Under it the whole people will, vote for measures and decide tiiem .upon their merits. TJie battle of ages will have been won. Is British From Beginning to End Humming up. then, it must appear quite clear that tee -commission plan of government with the initiative, referendum and.recall, instead of be- ing a -foreign- innovation, as some would have us believe, is in reality British in every characteristic and worthy of support of Can- adians. It is .true' the final step has been added by our American cousins. They are a great nation, those Ameri- cans. When they observe and. are fully .convinced that certain Canadian and British ideas in municipal govern- ment are superior to their own, they do not hesitate to throw their own to the winds and adopt ours.

Last year the nockey teams were given fifty per 'cent, of the gate receipts. This year the Arena will likely raise the per- centage to.fiO per cent If the National Hockey League can make a good pro- position. The raise will no doubt help the owners of the different teams to at least maite an even break at the end of the season. More parties will be willing to take-over the franchise than in the past.

They told their fellow countrymen what the American people would never allow any one but one of themselves to tell them, name- ly, that with all its show of popular rule, the American plan, "of electing every public servant, froai the mayor down to poundkeeper. was wrong and that the British and Gennan system of placing the government of cities in" the hands of comparatively few men who combined the legislative and ex- ecutive functions and had the full ap- pointment of all other officials, also devoting almost their whole time to municipal affairs, was the right way. i No Leisure Class, the Hitch But in Britain there is a class of wealthy men, honest, capable and will- ing to give their services 10 the pub- lic merely for the honor of the thing.
