In these days when the "good citi
zen" and the municipality uro In the
foreground of public discussion, n.ir
cltlzins will find many timely thoughts
and suggestions In the "Proceedings of
the Columbus Conference for Good
City Government" published by the
National Municipal League. This
volume contains In detail nil the pa
pers icad and discussion on the lend
ing topics edited by Secretary Clinton
Rogers Woodruff of Philadelphia.
Aside from the specific topics dealt
with by members of the League til J
volume gives remarks, made by promi
nent guests In attendance, of u gcnerul
Allan W. Thurmnn of Columbus, O.,
was one of these outside speakers who
pionounctd n series of living truths
that boar directly upon the source of
legislative and )lll rial correction. A
portion of his remarks which may 'ia
icad with profit by every citizen, of
Honolulu was as follows:
"At every municipal convention I
have ever attended. 1 have heard nbuso
hurled at the politician. They nre
charged with all the faud and all the
evil of government, and especially mu
nicipal government. Tho 'boss' is
damned nnd the 'ring' Is damned but
why not damn the right thing?
"Why the 'boss' nnd the 'ring' nro
simply the products of the briber. They
are the children of your ordinarily
'good citizen' who parades himself ns
an honest business man. I suppose
you go on the theory "spare the rod
and spoil the child.' That may be but
In this case you, would better take n
club to the 'old man." Do you need
proof of It? Why, It was only a short
time ago, that a company In the cits'
nf Columbus wns granted a franchise
by the City Council. It Is common
tulk. nnd by those who profess to know,
how that franchise was obtained. Even
the amount of money paid has been
"The men who arc said to be Inter
ested In the corporation are members
of the Hoard of Trado and aro among
the best citizens. They go to ihur"li
and hitch their horses on the outside
where every body can see them eve.-y
"There Is not one of them who would
go and deliberately offer n Councilman
a bribe. They are. too cowatdly to do
this, but they will htdrr-thelnselves" be
hind that corporation whose cmployis
Immediately seek out tho 'boss' If theie
Is one, to manipulate affairs for them.
These gentlemen simply enjoy the usu-
"Why not, then, tell them what they
nre? Why not call them by their right
names. Just tho same as you call the
political bobs nnd tho political ring by
their right names? Go to work and
reform these gentlemen; make It so
that If any business man thinks so llt-
t lie of the Institutions of his country
that for the sake of greed ho will offer
bribes and debauch public servants.
you will cast him out.
. "Another thing, If you don't belleva
nil this, take a hand some time In prac
tical politics and you will learn it;
for there Is hardly a private election
held In any city In this Union for mem
bers nf the council or otner municipal
offices, where you will not find these
same pious gentlemen, through tho
political machines of both parties, en
deavoring to have selected as candi
dates only such candidates as they
know can be used. I hnvo known
this to happen In tho city of Columbus,
I cannot say how many times, and it
will continue to happen until you drlvo
this man, this briber, this gentlemanly
source of evil out of the pioblem."
How truo these remarks are every
man knows who has had anything to
do with waves of ''reform" that sweep
over American cities. How welt np-'
pllcable they nre to tho political acti
vity of Hawaii Is also known to those
who have taken part In primary ele-ij
Hon lights, and heard the statements
from sources supposed to bo nbcivo
such things at least they assume this
superiority that our forthcoming Tci
rltorlal Legislature "can be bought."

to meet. In the future municipality to
be formed, It Is not the politician -or
thtf demagogue who Is so much to be
feared ns It Is the corrupting Influence
of this "gentlemanly briber" acting
through the unreliable tools always at
their command. '
