THE COMING ELECTIONS. THE District Council Elections will bo upon us in a week. Already canvassttg are at work, and local partizan feeliag is being stirred. At Pontypridd it to only the usual annual deliverances* The excitement does not promise to kfl very acute, but up the Rhondda then is buckling on the armour, maps It wards, electors' lists and all other details essential to successful campaigns aM studied with rare keeness. Of couMB we will be told that every candidate II an excellent fellow, fit, and in gos4 training condition for the duties iØ! volved in the aspiration called District Councillorship. We trust, howeVO4 that the people will weigh carefully an^ intelligently the claims, qualilicatioafe and fitness of each candidate. Whft we are asked to transfer c our vote aafi interest," we should set side by side the duties of the office sought, and the paSl experience cf the candidate. The work of a Rhondda District Councillor, 9 honestly performed, is no sinecure. lb has committees of several departmenfls, and it is here that the real value of VO representatives is proved. The Councfl meetings are opened to the Press, aai the deliberations are made known, frequently a negligent committeeman may make a fair show of active per formance. This sort of representation is a shop window Councillor, but tkS solvency And strength of an establish ment depend infinitely mere upon what is behind in the private store-rooHUk We will give credit to the last District Council that it has shown progtOBt upon its predeceBSOJ 8, and that theft was in it more than one man who had more than an elementary knowledge at the duties of the Council. The younger members of the body showed that thel could not always accept the" ipsS dixit of the leaders of the old gw4 withouL analysis. Altogether we say again, matters have bten mending, but the uiargin for improvement is still vetf wicle. We ne«?d men of grasp, and mdg of many experiences in health, in builclt ing, in road work, gas and watSty
