WE will take the cards as they come to hand. The first is' that of Mr. William Yivian. He presents himself as a candi- date for a seat on the Council at the earnest request of a very large number of Ratepayers." This is the stereotyped phrase of all new candidates. It has done good service in its time, and should now be allowed to take an equally long rest. I Mr. Vivian proceeds at. once" to detail the many goodttllngs lie I)as already done, and, amongst them, he states that he initiated and personally presented the petition demanding the public meeting of Ratepayers." This was, undoubtedly, a good day's work, and the result justified the energy put forth, but Mr. Vivian does not state in his address that he forgot to put in an appearance when called upon to state the object of the meeting. Mr. Vivian does not promise to follow it up, but he is going to tackle the housing question at once. He next takes credit for having enforced the Gas Company to supply better gas. If the poor gas and nauseous smells we have been subjected to were the result of his efforts, we must say, please, Mr. Vivian, don't do it again. He also takes credit for having introduced the meter system, and thereby saving Y,900 a year. Others have taken credit before for doing the same thing. It seems to us that this is a good old credit system, and can be trotted out for effective service whenever necessary. So much, then, for his noble work.
