ovoning stnrts off with n .good nanus but its iwom
nuMHlntions arc fair sounding appeals to senthuout rathor
than the niaturo dflibonitions of those who have studied
the science of government. Many of the demands are al
icady in the charter and in effect and the others would
work no great reforms.
The evils of our city governments, as with our state and
national, is lack of responsibility and division of responsi
bility among officials, who are elected, not upon merit, but
upon popularity, and hence are responsible to no one but
the electorate. What is everyone's business is no one's
business, and hence abuse after abuse has crept into civic
The commission form of government is designed to
lvnietlv irresponsible government by concentrating all re
sponsibility in the hands of three or five commissioners,
who are responsible for the conduct of their. respective de
partments. Lf ahything goes amiss, the responsibility is
Bedford being a small city, needs only one commis
sioner a business manager for the city. No private cor
poration doing the small volume of business done by the
city, would think of electing a dozen managers. It would
hire one manaiier atid'he would employ his assistants and
would be directlv responsible for their conduct. If be did
not make good, he could he recalled anil a new manager
Medford's charter could be easily amended so that the
mavor would be the onlv salaried officer elected, and he be
made the business manager for the city. An advisory board
of couucilincii, serving for the public welfare, without pay,
could act as the directors or a private corporation act,
passing upon the more important subjects.
As to the "good government league's" demands, public
work is already let by competitive bids, and the cost
known in advance: delinquent assessments are collected as
closely as possible without working undue hardship: the
registration hv in effect insures an honest election; the
council has full power in liquor licenses, and can revoke a
license upon violation of law and refuse to reissue: a public
matron is an unnecessary expense to taxpayers, there hav
ing been but one woman arrested in three years: home
lalior is already stipulated on public work wherever pos pes
sible: no advantage is trained by closing saloons at 10
o'clock, there areVerv few
tiie saloon man wno pays -jiviuu a year license, is cniuicit to
keep open until midnight. The police .judge can be sep
arated from the mavor's office under the present charter.
The Mail Tribune has kept close tab on city affairs.
It has no iartieular friendship for the administration, and
no wish to curry lavor with it. Hut it has been unable to
find any instance of graft. It could point out many chances
for improvement, and perhaps closer economy, but there
has been no corruption and on the whole, the city lias been
governed well. It is easy to pick flaws and find fault but
so far the new league advocates nothing to justify its name.
Let the league remodel the charter to make the ad
ministration a business one, just as a private corporation
would manage its affairs, concentrate the authority in a
business manager and then see that one is elected. It
would not only effect- material economies, but would be a

i DANGER IN DELAY.
II K Parent-Teachers association and the school board
call attention to the annual daimer at this season of
the year of epidemics of contagious diseases and request
that parents exercise the utmost vigilance with .their
children and in case of sore throat or suspicious symptoms,
consult a physician, lest the disease spread among the
A lew weeks ago, a case of scarlet ina developed al one
of the schools. School was immediately dismissed and the
entire building fumigated. Such precautions arc neces
sary, but are not sufficient to remove danger provided the
parents themselves do not co-operate.
The law makes it a physician's duty to report al once
every case of contagious disease and establish a quaran
tine. It is fear of the inconveniences caused by such a
quarantine that is responsible for the failure of many
physicians and the families affected to notify health offi
cers of the existence of disease.
Such negligence is criminal. Aif entire neighborhood
often suffers from it, sometimes it results in the closing of
all schools and widespread illness, suffering and death.
Parents should realize their responsibilities and as
they would guard their own children, so must they assist
in protecting the children of others. At the first suspic
ious symptoms, summon a doctor, both for sake of the
child itself and for the welfare of all the children.
It is easy to check disease if taken in time. It is most
difficult if it is allowed to develop. It is almost impossible
t stamp out an epidemic until many little lives have been
