THE CITY COUNCIL.
The Municipal Voters' League hits
this to say lu Ita address to the pub
lic on the city council:
Home rulo for Chicago Is tho themo
to which tho Municipal Voters' Leaguo
tunes Its harp In its twenty-fifth an
nual report, Issued yesterday, upon
tho records of tho city council and
tho thirty-live outgoing aldermen.
"Has Chicago shown itself fit to
run Its local affairs .'" says tho league,
will be tho chief test applied by tho
constitutional convention at Spring-
Held. By way of answer tho report
declares that Chicago In thq last quar
ter century looms up as tho ono great
American city which has cleaned up
Its council without any outside help.
"Chicago is a council governed
city," It says. "That has been tho slo
gan of citizens lighting for better
"Thlrty-flvo years ugo tho low point
had been reached in local government
In great Amor-lcan cities. Thoy woro
almost universally Inefficient, extrava
gant, and corrupt. In most cases, de
spairing of othor remedy, thoy turned
to tho Stnto for aid, and from that
tlmo they liavo been largely governed
not from their city halls but from
their Stato capltols.
"Chicago Is tho striking exception.
Instead of (lying to tho leglslaturo tho
citizens took hold of their own prob
lems. "Voices woro raised speaking tho
trut.li about scoundrels In olllco and
corruptlonlsts outside. Gradually vic
tory was achieved, and tho crooks In
tho city council became- a hopoless
minority. Chicago Is unique unions
great American cities In that achlovo
mont. Its history for twonty-flvo years
lights tho way for tho feet of democ
racy in America. Will tho light bo
kept burning? Chicago Is a council
governed city: homo rulo means en
