be put up only in certain places de-
signated by municipal authorities. Be-
fore the district polling place upon
the bulletin board appeared from
time to time the posters of the various
candidates, in which they set forth
their platforms and made promises as
to what they should do if elected to
the council. The bourgeois candidates
proposed and promised various muni-
cipal reforms; Badina promised that
if he were elected, he would effect the
abolition of war. Great interest was
shown in the coming election. Crowds
attended the posting of new "affiches,",
which at times became violett and
even scurrilous in their berating of
the opposing candidates.
At length, after several weeks of
campaigning, the elections were held
one Sunday, the French election day.
Although the French have not yet
adopted the Australian ballot system,
their elections are secret, and as a
rule fair. The prospective voter en-
ters the polling place, where he is
given a ballot by each one of the
candidates or his representative. ,He
enters a booth, marks his ballot, seals
it in an envelope, and drops it in
the ballot box or "urne electorale,"
as the French call 'it. The election
is =presided over by a member of the
municipal council, and the two old-
est and the two youngest voters, who
who choose a secretary.
Thus was the electiln for the coun-
cillor of the Quarter de Sante oper-
ated. At the counting of the votes,
which is public, a crowd of two thous-
and people filled the election hall.
Wild shouts and a general uproar
from the Communists greeted the an-
nouncement that Badina, their can-
didate, had received a majority vote.
A red flag parade immediately took
place to celebrate the victory, dur-
ing which discret bourgeois remained
indoors.
But according to French practice, a'
second balloting must take place a
week after the first. The bourgeois
formed a coalition, all of the candi-
dates except one withdrawing from
the 'contest. 'In spite of this Badina
was elected, much to the surprise of
everybody. The Socialist papers pub-
lished an account of the affair to a
great extent, while it barely received
mention in the conservative journals.
So it appeared that Badina, the con-
vict, was to represent the Quartier de
Sante in the municipal council; but
another obstacle appeared. That
worthy body refused to admit Badina
In their midst.
Several months later another elec-
tion was held with the same results.
Badina, now become martyred, receiv-
ed an overwhelming vote. Still the
council refused to accept him. And
so it stands.

The irregulars' method of war-
fare is destructive of the econo-
mic life of the nation. Sheer brig-
andage is a fair term to apply to
it.
riegulars' Seize Shipping
The irregulars are reported to have
seized a quantity of shipping in Cork
harbor, looting the vessels of large
quantities of stores. At Limerick the
irregular activties are ruining busi-
ness. Many of the principal places of
business have been seized or looted,
Including flour mills and bacon curing
factories, reidering many workers
idle.
In view of the grave prospects for
economic conditions, the.Irish Laborl
Party and Trades Union congress have
been engaged over the week end in an
effort to reach peace by negotiation:
A meeting of the executives of these
bodies with the labor members of the
new parliament has been held and in-
vitations have been issued for a con-
ference at the Mansion house next
Thursday.
