Nothing has (been heard of a com
mission form of government for Be
midji since the defeat of the charter
iptan several months ago, and it be
gins to look as though the proposi
tion lis a dead issue an iBemdiji. The
charter acted upon should be revised
so as to remedy the provisions most
criticised, and another vote held. As
conditions now are, the much con
demned and original city charter is
followed, as well as possible, in car
rying on 'the city's business.
Sixteen nations recently accepted an
invitation issued by the British gov
ernment to send delegates to an in
ternational congress to consider the
traffic in birds' plumage and devise
means of saving wild 'birds from ex
tinction. Present indicationh are
thait the congress will not be held
for some time. The nationei lately
interested in preventing the birds'
extermination are too busy exterm
inating each other. In this connec
tion we are reminded that there was
to be a session of international peace
congress soon in Stockholm or some
where. Has anybody heard any
thing further about that congress?
The Price of Food.
There is no reason wfoy the cost
of provisions should rise at this time
in America. If .prices are forced up
it will be due to Speculation and il
legitimate profit-taking. Imported
artiicles of food and drink will be
more expensive, of course, on ac
count of the Shortage caused by ithe
withdrawal of carriers from the sea
and the halting of production and ex
portation in the warring countries
i Those who must still have French
champagne, German beer and saus
ages, Russian cigarettes and Swiss
cheese must pay more for such lux
uries. Coffee, fruits* and a few
other importations from countries
outside the war zone may rise in less
degree because of the added diffi
culty of transportation. But by far
the greatest part of our food is pro
duced here at home, and for any con
siderable advance in the price of dQz
mestic foodstuffs there is no valid
reason. With the European mar
kets temporarily closed, our grains,,
meats and vegetables should sell'
lower, not ihigher. American ports
are clogged with these commodities
the wareihouses are filled, trainloads
are stalled, elevators and cold stor
age houses are jammed. When we
find ships to carry our exports!, and
th foreign mar-
kets .th high obtainable
abroad and the draining of our own
.a& (supply may result in a natural rise
of values at home. But an the mean
-time the public should understand
that any rise is forced and.is based
on a speculative value which, even if
i t' should be realized in the future,
id inexcusable at present.

And one of the chief reasons for
his success is his ability to find
men to do what he cannot do

more valuable asset than an
abundance of misdirected energy.

OF GITr BRIDGES
Lack of Artistic Talent Shown
N O AESTHETIC EFFECT.
To Achieve the Proper Result the
Bridge Engineer Should Co-operate
With the Architect In the Design of
the Bridge and Its Approaches.
By FRANK KOESTER,
Author of "Modern City Planning and
One very striking defect in our
bridge construction is the lack of artis
tic talent shown in the design. For the
most part our bridges are like skyscrap
ers, masterpieces of ugliness and purely
utilitarian in every sense. In the pres
sure to get enough bridges built to ac
iouimodate the traffic they have been
fuil with little or no sense of aesthetic
effect and are accordingly without
beauty or .individuality.
The engineers have been wholly con
tent to erect bridges that would stand
up. but while successful in this the ap
pearance of the bridge has been utterly
neglected, for the great majority of
bridges are of not too good engineering
design, containing far more metal, than
is necessary in certain parts, while oth
er parts too little. This is proved by
the frequent strengthening of and ad
ditions to existing bridges, the removal
of tracks and their unnecessarily high
cost. Thus our engineers can only be
credited with the roughest kind of
work, which is not to be wondered at,
since the mind that would be satisfied

The great importance thus of the
bridge, both in the practical i and,
aesthetic life of the city, demands that
its design and construction receivie the
utmost care and attention. No single
part of the plan of a city, with the ex
ception of the civic center, is of great
er imDortance than its bridges. The

bridges to the portals. Often the: first
impression of a city and frequently the

bridge, and as the entrance to the city,
it should be treated with the dignity,r

the city's plr.n rather tinvu a mere en
