In tinkering up the city charter la-1 winter
the gentlemen who engineered the job
lost tidit of the fact that three School
Trustees bad lo be elected, and failed to fix
the time lor their election at the came time
with the City Council, and a separate election
has to be held on the first Sattuday in
January to select thiee gentlemen to fill
those positions. A question will come up
at that time which the patched up charter
does noi provide for, and that is, who are
entitled lo vote? Every legal voter or only
those who have paid their taxes and registered?
If it is free lor all it will be a lively
one, as those who were shut out last Saturday
will be certain tfe on hand.
If there is one thing this country i?
cursed with it is a multiplicity of elections.
The excitement of one is hardly over before
another come-! on, and a number of the
quiet, order loving citizens have become
disgusted and stay away from the polls.
