The Brigade v.

In that way the Police Force will be relieved so that they may give j liuiir whole attention, to the very mectsssary \>ürk of keeping back the crowds, and thus. give the members of the Brigade clear space t, work in. The adage that "coming events cast their shadows before" is once again* verified, a."JJ the talk of the district is of the forth- cosming District Council Elections in Apri-1 nest. The Trade and Labour Council are already on the look-out for suitable candi- da.tes far several of the seats; but whether tliijy will be more fortunate than in the past fj rgelv depends upon wh- thev will be careful in the selection of candidates who ■will be generally popular. The Frk", Church Council is also. it is S"1.Ÿd:, Cfjossdenng t*se desirabi 1 ity cf taking an active part in thfe fray: owing especially to the fact that under the New Education Act that the con- trol of the Schools in the District, will pass to tlxe Council. It is to be hoped, however, that the Executive of the Free Church 'Council will as far as possible' work in har- inoray with the Labour Patty in the; district, as that is the only means of securing really strong progressive men oh the Council The fault of the progressive party in thts past has o l>e»era its ddvisiotn and it is to bei^wicerely j ti.oped: that this will not be repeajbeti on this the first election, after the passing of the jLfrucation Act. A great deal will depe nd upon the scheme for the adrainrefcration of the Act prepared by the Counoii, fotT once such a scheme is passtsd it will be founds ex-1 ceedingly difficult to amend. it. The red tape of Government Departmesnta is, as crnr j readers are well aware, proverbial: so do not let us make a bad initial step. • I Speaking of the Education Act, we under- stand, that at the Mountain-; Ask District Council, the question of {^; appocntrrsent of a oommittee to ccmsiderthe ra^tihod of pro- j cerfure to be atiop-bed, will cocoa up for Jis- cussioro at the next meeting. 1 0 1 "J^wire are numermis rmprovenwnts ooe-cf- edi in the parish of Aberdane, to several of T.-hich the CooncM Ls already pkulged, but: Y. hichi it is so far fownd impossible to carry out owing to the opposition of interested j "arties.
