Wilson last night had before the council another commu nication urging immediate action. Early in January the mayor named as a reilistrlcting committee I' William linker, Adam Eckert and Henry McCullough, one Republican and two Democrats. At the aldernranlc meeting o( January 16 the aldermen were rioti dod by the mayor of bis appoint ments and the matter was referred to the committee of the whole. As it Is necessary for the aldermen to approve the mayor's appointments before the committee can function, some action on the put t of the coun cil has been awaited for almost two months by the mayor. The mayor’s letter to the board said: "Will you kindly advise me what action, if any, you intend to take with reference to my appoint ments in the matter of redistrictlng the wards In the city of Perth Am boy. This, as you know, in manda tory under the statue and your im mediate action in this matter i-= urged.” Efforts made by the Republicans to redistrlct the city following their defeat at the polls last November and the loss of control of '|io city were defeated when a restraining or dpn tv9A RPP.urpif hv thp Dnmnrrnts ind no decision authorising the may or to make his appointments was made until the Democratic Board of Aldermen had taken office. It ivai then thought the matter would be dropped if it was a political move a8 the Democratic council would not he expected to approve of a Repub lican redistricting. The mayor's action In placing two Democrats and one Republican on this committee came as a surprise and resulted in the aldermen failing to approve of the mayor’s action. Whether or not the aldermen will comply with the mayor’s request to take some action in the matter is a question. The mayor's letter was re ferred to the committee of die whole. WASHINGTON.
