T I i ihv C. H. Chapman. Labor candidate I for Wellington City Council, spoke on the abovo subject under S.D.P. auspices on Sunday, March 25. He compared the t ideal city with a well ordered family. The benefits derired from living to, gcther' could only be enjoyed when the duties of citizenship were appreciated t 'oiid'performed in the interest of the whole citizens by them individually, and by their -representatives. The motto for citizenship should be: "From each, aci cording to bis ability, to each accord■■ ing to his need." Mr. Chapman dealt at length with the particular duties of City Councillors, whose first con• sideration always 6hould be the health "of the citizens. .Municipal services should be 'run for' the convenience and use of citizens, and not the private pro; fit of some sections. The duty devolving on the individual citizen was to take prido 'in his city, exerd6e hifl vote, and be vigilant in criticising those appointed to manage the City's affairs.
