it Is a fact, that has apparently
been pretty generally overlooked that
aldermen and members of the school
board, (hough nominated by wards,
are to be elected at large; that is,
•ill the candidates go on all the bal-
lots and are voted on just the same
as mayor and other officers. Here
tofore each ward has elected its own
aldermen and members of the school
board independently of the other
wards. The provisions of the char-
ter concerning this matter are as
I he mayor shall be nominated
and elected at large by the qualified
voters of the city.
"The councilmen shall be nomi-
nated from the respective wards by
the qualified voters thereof, and
elected ai large.
The city treasurer and city as-
sessor shall be nominated and elect-
