There is little doubt but the Salem city government could
be conducted with great efficiency under commission form
and with greater economy
For that, has been generally the experience of the 380 or
more cities in the United States that have adopted the cky
manager or commission plan in some one or another of the
various forms the idea has taken.
At first, the idea was for ihree or more commissioners
elected by the people, each one presupposed to be a special
kt in his particular field and the whole number mesting
for the passing of ordinances, like a city council; that is
beinir both legislators and administrators. That is the
Portland plan.
Then came the city manager plan in several diff eren
forms. That is the idea of the proposed new charter for
t Later has come the corporation plan, and more cities are
adopting this idea than any other.
It is also the idea being put forth in Salem. But with a
city council of only five members, one of whom it ia proposed
the other councilmen shall choose as mayor.
' But the corporation plan generally calls for a larger num
ber of city councilmen. The Salem idea being considered
calls for the election of the five councilmen at large.
That is a gtxd idea. But it is not as popular as the one
that calls for the election of the councilmen from the differ
ent wards. At least, it will not prove as popular in the
outlying districts. The people generally are jealous of their
rights ; particular about the needs of their own neighbor
hoods. This is but natural.
The corporation plan is taken from the organization of a
large company; the councilmen standing for the directors,
the mayor for the president, and the other city officers for
such persons as the directors of a large company choose for
the heads of the various departments; men skilled in their
special lines.
Salem is, the graveyard of proposed new city charters
embodying the commission forma of government. Three
have been killed ,by the voters. -
To guard against another funeral of the kind, it will be
necessary to have full and free discussion ; and it will like
wise be essential that the voters in the outlying districts be
assured of the protection of their local interests and rights,
or what they regard as their rights
And a plan calling for fourteen or more councilmen, and
elected in tiie wards, will have better chances of success
than one with, only five men elected, at large.
"Days and Deeds in the Oregon Country" is the title of a
new book just off the press, by Prof. J. B. Horner, who has
long held the chairj of history at the Oregon Agricultural
college. Prof. Horner has published a number of good

looking shocked, now langhed un
til he groaned, for it hurt his
broken ribs.
"Why do you want to paint

Ralph Armitage Inquired.
"Because ' I've been telling you
too much about myself already.
You told me the other -day if I
didn't have my lips reddened you
could tell what I was going to aay
before I said it. Just now' I am
so sorry for you, but while we
have been talking, I have wanted
to kiss1 you. I'm wondering if
you saw that before I reddened
my lips?" -
The man on the bed closed his
eyes and held. out his. good arm.
Lynda bent down, nd her ceol
lips brushed his cheek. She drew
back hastily, for Ralph Armitage
said, in a smothered voice: "I
think I'm feeling, too 111 to dictate
letters today. I'll call you up to
morrow, if I feel able to do it
then. Thank you. very much,
Lynda, for coming-out." -
Surprised and ar little ashamed,
Lynda Fenton answered: "Good

the other room, where she asked

"No. Emily, I'm afraid he is gt

' "There," - said - Emily, tr ram-
must be more eager to pump her
about Ralph than ever before.
If Ralph Armitage was deceiv
ing her, Lyn thought, he was do
ing it onconsciously and he was
deceiving himself as well. Then
her face grew hot as she remem
bered the end of her Interview
with him that morning. She could
not understand It. What had she
done? She knew he had expected
her to atay all day; and he had sent
ner away so abruptly. Perhaor
she abould not bave told him that
ane waa sorry for him, that she
would like to kiss him. But sure
ly he should know, if anyone, that
there were kisses and kisses. Hers
were one of pity, and even if pity
were akin to lore, hers had not
reached that atate yet.
"What made her kiss him. any
way?" she asked herself. She was
sure she had no feeling of "hunt
ing a thrill." She merely wanted
him to know she waa sorrv for
