Wo trust that the Hoard of Health
In making Its plans to meet the new
conditions "after the first of July"
will glvo first consideration to efficiency.
The Board has money lo work with.
Us chief responsibility is to get the
best men for tho money.
This paper does not nntlclpute that
the Health olllcluls can possibly se
cure as regular employes such an ef
ficient staff of men aB were at work
on clean-up day. Many of our ablest
and most successful business men left
their usual labors and thoroughly en
joyed, for a day, the ordinary duties
of an ordinary health Inspector. The
workers of that day could not be dup
licated for regular service with u mil
lion u year.
These volunteers, however, besides
learning 't lot thcmseUos, set an ox
amplo that should bo beneficial. They
set a pace for the nieragn health In
spector, of which the Board will no
doubt tukn every advantage
Some people tell the Hoard of
Health that it should absolutely set
aside politics lu Its selection of em
ployes The Bulletin makes a
negative response lo this suggestion
Good politics Is good government
Tho Hoard of Health should cooper
ate with tho political workers of the
party wh'clt the administration Ib
supposed to stitnd for. The Hoard
should ask these political workers to
llnd good men, elllclent men, men
who can bo depended upon, men who
will bo a credit to tho community und
therefore an ndded powor for tho
Hut It should be distinctly under
stood that no political regularity will
save an Inelllcleiit man.
Tho great mlstuke of so mnny pub
lic officers and political workers Is
tho attempt to carry Inefficient men
in positions whero they aro entirely
out of place. Just because they hap- 1
pen lo be good party workers. I
Good politics Is putting tho right
men In the right pluce and seeing to
It that they make good.
All things being equal Republican
applicants should Itavo tho prefer
ence, but tho people demand capable
men In public office nnd partlzatishlp
should never guarantee the position
of a worthless public employe.
The straightforward courso lu pol
itics and administration would bo a
great blessing to tills city and to this
Territory. Ab tho Hoard of Health
has a great work to do and many
men to employ. It could not do bet
ter than glvo the people a samplo of
u plain, straightforward political
gamo of efficiency, and that Ik most
certainly good government. Such n
plan would eliminate till the difficul
ties or petty politics at the start, nnd
leave the Hoard und the community
free to glvo undivided attention tn
thti great work and the multitude of
pioblems that come with utmost ev
