Ua cial election January , to give voters
an opportunity to cast ineir nauoia ror

The city "attorney has drafted a'.-re-pealing
ordinance, and another ordi

' ""The o'rdlnanco passed last? week."
said City Attorney: Grant, "called for
an election at which a charter provid

Mayor Simon, today, Tor the reason

However If the city attorney advises
me to do so, I will. The ordinance ball
ing for' the special election was Intro
duced . so suddenly : that . I had no op
portunity of giving It careful consider
ation. but although . I feared , that . It
might not hav been drawn properly. 1
did- not : make, any strenuous - objection,
knowing that any defects I might dis
cover could bo corrected by veto, if nec
essary. I am, as I have repeatedly
said before, heartily In favor of the
adoption of the commission plan at the
earliest possible date and I want the
public to know that I have not changed
my mind In the least en -that subject."

London, June It. England is today
on the eve of the most spectacular
event in her history, the crowning on
Thursday of King George V and Queen
Mary. Not that the crowning of this
royal pair la of any greater Importance
than similar events In the past, but that
the king and queen, both with a love
for ceremonials, and England and the
world at large apparently clamorous for
such a pageant, have combined to make
the function the most umpraous or
