SUBMIT 1 TALKS AMENDING CITY CHARTER J. S. Howard, Founder of Medford, Declares that Proposed Amendment Prattcts Thm From Insolence of Would-be Masters. Attitude of Mayer an Encreachmefvt Upon Mm Mfhts of the People MitcheH's Attitude Censured. I To the editer: Tin- charter nmrud incut to-be -voted upon tomorrow is i one of the most dcirablo amendment J ever presented to the people of Med- I ford IiiQfiniiielt ns it protects the pco pic from the Insolence of their would- be masters (yes master is nn ugly word when considered by free-born Americans). It was the ill advised encroachments on the people's rights that gave birth to the spirit of "70" and that spirit of freedom and main taining our rights agninpt any ag gressive encroachments is ns manifest and cherished by cverj- free man of our country an it was iu tho time of our forefathers.

The city council is composed of ix members who rcprcscut a majority of all the votes of the city. They are suposcd to each be fully equal to the mayor in mental and moral capacity. They iu fact are tho immediate repre sentatives of the people and when the mayor presents a name to tho council for approval and the council rejects him, thon if the mayor persists in re appointing the samo person again and again he is certainly iu contempt of the people nud the council. It is a most gratuitous insult to the people and says to the people in effect, "(he people be damned." Mr. Mitchell says that personally he preferred Mr. Amsplgcr as city en gineer, but for the snko of harmony, he would approve of tho mayors sel eetion.
