whether my propoaltlon would be legal.
but I would eusseat It, if the city at

Mr. Cellara" remarka were elicited
when one of the charter commissioners
mentioned that Mayor-elect Ruahllght
might appoint another charter revision
body. The commission agreed to go
ahead, regarciieaa or now ninny nmr

"It occurs to me," said Chairman E.
C. Hronaugh of the commlaaion, mat
It wolud be wle for ua to move cau-
tioualy and alowly In attempting to
chimge the preaent charter. Aa I view
our work, we have bean appointed to
amend the charter we now have, not to
draft a new one. There ara many fea
ture of our preaent charter that have
pruved to be thoroughly practicable and
the aupreme court of the atate haa given
Judicial conatructlon to many other
parta of the charter. It would be the
part of good policy for ua to atlck to
what haa been eatabllahed aa good. In i

It la only a queatlon with me of ellml-i commlaaion plan, th on that appeals
a great deal of work to do to attend to
my owi business. ' 8 till, I an .willing
to give my time to th commlaaion If,
at th vary outset. Isim Maurd that
w will not waat our Urns., I will
give cheerfully of my time, but I hart
no time to waate. I feel that tbls body
ahould be unanlmouely In favor of

"I have changed my mind on a num
ber of point of municipal government
alnr 1101. 1 waa on of th member
of th commlaaion that revlaed th city
charter that year, and I waa atrong for
a ward ayattre of electing councilman.
I opposed any change from ward repre
sentation because I represented an out
lying ward myaelf. Wa eompromleed,
however, by voting for a ayatem that
called for five councllmen at large and
10 from wards.
"If my conception of a commlaaion
form of government la right, I believe
ward councllmen will be eliminated al
together. 1 am now convinced that I
waa wrong 10 years ago, and that th
a stem of ward councllmen ahould be
done away with. The councilman, or
commissioners, or whatever the rulera
of th city ahall be called, ahould rep-
reaent the whole municipality and not
any particular part of It"

"I feel that I have a duty to perform.
otherwlae I could not afford to acoept
the oneroua tak that ha been impoaed

Adolphe Wolfe earnestly. "Now, I hav i
to m more atrongty than all th rest

all know, a larg body of municipal

"A large city ahould b operated on
th asm principle as a lag depart
ment ator. . Th department store puts
as many lines under one' head as pos
sible and makes that one head abaolut
ly responsible for everything under his
control. He cannot blame any aaslst
ant for anything that goea wrong.
Concentrate your department and
fix the responsibility. That la the sum
ming up of the commission plan. A
Urge city like this ahould have, though,
I should say, at leaat five commission
ers." W. F. Woodward aatd he thought the
city ahould have at leaat aaven com
missioners. The commlaaion voted to
build up a commlaaion charter around
th seven men Idea. Th seven depart
menta to b headed each by a commis
sioner, will be flnanco and accounts,
parka, publlo property and Improve

asserted Mr. .Wolf, ."publlo officials
will be chosen lor life.' th same as th
United States suprsm court Judges are.
I oaa see no rason why this plan should
not be adopted for our city, but Of
couree, I raalts -thst th public Is not
educated to th Idea as yet However,
It does seam, to m that If a man prove
