'J he ballot  will simply read: "Electric light, Yes; No," and the most little cro'isc-s fo ind ,opposite either one, will .d.-cidd whether tho council will go ahead with the project or drop it for at least their  term of ollice.  The meeting L.sl night bad been called "for the purpose of  ���������disoii.'sag a report leceived j.yMayor Nicholson, from the City Solicitor of -Victoria, and which appeared in The LoJgcr-pn Monday hist, regarding the best way of obtaining'a referendum on  thc irurstion of municipally owned or pri.'alely owned ' electric  plant  Alii.  Campleli,  after     the  Mayor had explained the. prrpose of  the gathering, said that  he had  heard  a good  many of lhe rate"  layers cypress  the  wish  to vote on    tiie    three   questions at the  same time,   viz.:    Municipally-owned  pLnt,    privately-owned  plant,  ��������� or no plant at all.  Aid.   Uren - thought  that   this    would   not  be a fair   proposition;    it   would   le  a cut-throat  vote.  Aid. Si Mice thought the best plan would be to submit ������. plain'  vote of "yes" 0r "no," for electric lights. Once the Council had  i.scsrtained the views of' the .ratepayers on. this . question, they  wp-ild know^-jist  what to do.  If the voters say they want li������hts, then the city fathers will  go ahead and introduce a by-law. In case it is a municipally-  owned phut, the vote would Le whether or not th.* counciTshould  ���������borrow t'ie necessary tin's.
