WHO WANTS A XKW MAYOR?
HIS Is the headline of an editorial
in the Northwestern Sunday
morning. The editor of the North
western should hare bad no hesitancy
In saying: "Tho citr of Klamath
Falls demands a new mayor."
It Is easy enough to detect from a
reading of the editorial that the trou
ble with the. editor of the Northwest
ern Is that his conception of who are
the people is at fault. He has suf
fered so often In the past from the
same misconception that we are con
strained to advise him to' adjnst his
telescope to bring into close range and
view the whole citizenship of the city.
'lest he continue to fall into Irretriev
able error In that regard.
He is not entirely happy in his com
parison and likening of the people to
the frogs In the fable.
The Idea of electing a- mayor is In
no wise analogous to selecting a ruler
of knightly attributes and powers.
The mayor has. resigned. Without
n mayor the government of the city Is
Incomplete. It lacks the executive
function. It is not a question of sav-
ling $100 a month by leaving the office
of mayor vacant. It Is not a question
of whether Mr. Mathews is getting on
One. It Is not a question of giving the
I council a- chance.
It is simply a question of living up
to the law of the city, and giving the
people an opportunity of selecting a
responsible head to the city govern
ment. Important functions are delegated
to the executive department of the
,city government. The people are en
titled to have those questions and the
jcxecutlve power vested In the mayor
'exercised by a man directly chosen to
fill that position.
It Is such an official who alone.
without question as to the legality of
his acts, can exercise those delegated
'powers and functions. Section C4 of
'the charter says: that a vacancy In
the office of mayor shall be filled by a
special general election."
J The present charter was complied
by a commission consisting of C. S.
'Moore. A. Delzell, J. V. Siemens,
(Fred Melhase, O. M. Hector, R. H.
Dunbar, D. B. Campbell, Hunter Sav-
idge, W. O. Huson. A. A. Mebaffey
jand A. L. Leavitt, and was submitted
I to the people and by them adopted.
i The measure received a most careful
! scanning, and was most thoroughly
discussed by both the local nress and
I platform opponents and exponents. Its
adoption lifted the city out of an In
tolerable condition of doubt and un
certainty, and placed It on a legal
The charter muddle ot a few years
ago is still fresh In the minds of many
people, who can seo in this effort on
the part of this element who now ask
"Who Wants a New Myor?" an at
tempt to bring about another muddle
in our civic government and plunge
ug into needless strife and turmoil.
The present charter Is tho funda
mental law of this city. Made so by
the will of the people. It Is binding
alike on tho people, mayor and coun
cil under their oaths of office.
The powers and duties of each
'branch of the government are specific
ally enumerated and delegated. Pow
ers delegated to one branch aro with
in Id from tho others.
The editor of the Northwestern
sas: "It's all piffle, of course. Tho
people at large are not demanding a
M-ecial election." Again we advise an
idJuMmcnt of the editor's" telescope.
