The'-" person sought to be removed is entitled to a place on the official ballot without nomination. If one of the other can- didates receives a. higher number of votes, he succeeds the incumbent un- til the end of the term. The Initiative Wfien the people desire .to take the initiative in submitting an ordinance, they must secure the signatures of twenty-five per cent, .of the duly qual- it tne voters at the last preceding voters if .they are to present the election. Wiea petitions "bearing that Proposition at .the next regular elec- number are presented to the mayor he must call a special election., within two months' time. If the proposition of adopting the commission system fails to carry, the question cannot be re-submitted for two years. On the other hand, if a. majority vote for the plan, the law provides jthat four cour.cilmen and a mayor j shall he elected at the next ..regular icity election, provided that it is more than a year away. In case it is i another special election must be held. The term of office is two years and siarts the Monday following the ele- ec-iion. in case a vacancy occurs, the remaining -members of the commis- sion fill it. Election of Commissioners All five of the -'commissioners are elected at large; ward lines being ab- -except for convenience iir voting, registration and the like. The nominations are made at a primary cl- ction held the second 'Monday pre- j ceding the general election. Ten j flays before the primary candi- dates are required to file notice of 'tneir candidacy. At the election thf eight would-be commissioners and, Uie two would-be mayors having thej lf secure 'ten -per cent must be submitted-at the next uJar election. In-case the larger ber is secured, the council must eith- er pass the draft -without modification in twenty days or submit it to the vote. The proposition of repealing or amending an ordinance so passed, may be taken up at the next succeed- ing general election. law requires that all ordinances pass in the, regular receive three readings, and remain on file in ...the clerk's office-for a week. .Only when it is stated in the draft tha-t it is deem ed urgent and necessary for the pres- ervation of the public and safety is .this provision waived.; Cities adopting the -commissibri'form of government must at once pass an ordinance -distributing the powers and duties to the. ..various .departments. commission the :power to pre- scribe the powers and .duties of-the various departments, but that is left largely to the superintendents, of the Individual departments.
