air. Barnes prepared tho following
statement for The Tribune In connection
with his bill:
After months of Investigation and "
research, which has included cor
respondence with officials of many
European us well as American cities,
and the examination of a score or
more municipal charters of cities of
progressive repute, 1 am free to con
fess that In my opinion Utah's cities
now have but a skeletonised form
of commission government, for one
thing, and that the commission plan
Is doad wrong from any point of
view that you may take of It. It Is
only a makeshift at beat the treat
ment of a few symptoms of the dis
eases that afflict our body politic lo
cally. As in vogue In Salt Lake Cltv.
lor Instance, It is shorn of some 6f
the main characteristics of leading
commission forms: it gives too much
authority ovor Important business
such as franchises to a few men who
are encumbered with detail; and It
lacks the salient clement of broad
The bill I have prepared embodies
correct principles of business. I be

and falrnoss, and Is founded In a

years ago. at which 1 time 1 boKin
to give tho matter attention. I havo
wondered why there is such a wide
diaerencc between business manage

mercial corporations and municipal
corporations. Such things as graft,
special favor, waste, etc., are, I find
practically eliminated in the con
ducting of the business of most large
corporations, such as railroad, larso
mercantile cstabllshements. banks
and packing plants, to .say nothing
of the marvelously smooth business
machinery such as one may observe
in the Utah Copper company, for In

Second The election bv all the
stockholders, without division, of a
small representative body called the
board of directors, and delegating to
them full power to transact the busi

Third This small body of repre

board of directors, selects, not electa
expert officials who are tc conduct

Iourth &lnco the board of direc

to select the officials. It has the
power to remove them. On the other
