Last Night -Told How New
: Plan Has Aided Portland.
COMMISSION f LAN GETS
BETTER MEN TO FRONT
Old Distrust and Reports
: of Graft ' Eliminated Since
' ' New Plan Has Been in Use.
Eight ywn of experience with the
commission form of government In tha
city of Portland' has proved that men
of higher type are attracted to munici
pal service than under the aldermanlc
plan and that the added responstvencsa
of the newer form has been -worth .1
thousand times the effort and trouble
taken to secure tt were twu truths
brought home forcefully laat night by
H. y. Irvine, editor ot the Oregon Jour,
nal. In a speech before a packed hull
when he made the chief add rem at the
monthly meeting of tho rendition
'Commercial Association, '
' He commuted the feeling of the peo
ple ot the city toward th old government-and
that manifested now alnce
the change has been In effect, and
called attention to the lurk of ausplclnn
of, the transactions of the municipal
government that prevails since the al-j
dermanlo system wiui slKdtshed In
lll. ' , ..
I ' - Vaed to Charge tiraft
lit the old days It waa no uncommon
thing for one cchtnoHman iX Xe Tort
land government to publicly charge
fellow members of the council with
grafting and receiving rebates. At
present thia spirit is noticeable on ac
count of Its absence, the speaker de
clared, and there la no shadow hover
ing over the city hall. No breath of
scandal circulates about the -work of
tha municipality, and no responsible
newspaper In the city has ever charged
the municipal government with any
thing even approaching shady transac.
The experiment haa also been a suc
cess from a financial pohit of view, ac
cording to the editor, thousands of dol
lars having been saved In the various
departments of municipal operations
Including street cleaning, paving, and
In the water service.
" function of Government
"What a government Is routing to
operate Is not In any way a true Index
to. its' Value." the speaker declared.
The real test Is what service la rcn
dcred by the government for the
money expended. Bom questions that
roil should answer are, how effi
ciently are your streets being cleaned.
,ls the milk fed to your babies clean,
are your dralh rates rising or falling,
what Is tho nature of your public con-
. tracts, what ar your police doing, are
your, firemen actively engaged In work
to (ncvant Jlrea The answers to these
questions will alwuys give an lndlcn
tlon as to tho kind of city .'govern
ment a community 'enjoy.
"I. believe ln the comml'wion form
of government necuM" of my expert
rnre with that form of government.
Under the old alderninnlc form mil-
' Hons of dollars of public money were
being spent by weak men. One of the
