If there is one thing the taxpayers
are getting ureu oi u is me practice
of politicians and of public officials
conducting public affairs on extrava
gant and corrupt political methods
instead of upon economic business
methods. Drouth, panica and busi
ness depressions have brought the
people to the necessity of the strict,
est kind of business methods in the
management of their personal affairs
and the taxpayers, without regard to
party, are turning to public officials
to ask this very pointed question:
What methods are you using in the
expenditure of our hard-earned tax
money t Gov. Altgeld. of Illinois, is
making the most satisfactory answer
to this question of the drouth
stricken, tax-ridden taxpayers of any
rublic official in the United States,
le has used business methods in the
management of state affaire and ao
striking have been the good results
of the new system when contrasted
with the bad tesults of the old polit
ical methods, that Gov. Altgeld to
day enjoys a national reputation be
cause of it. His administration of
affairs in Illinois is in marked con.
trast with that of Gov. Mc
Klnley's in Ohio; indeed, with
that of all other governors. In
Ohio the conduct of state of affairs
was turned over to a set of gang pol
iticians with the result that Ohio was
cuned with alarming extravagance
and rorruption. In Illinois Gov.
Alteeld gave his party politicians to
understand that he was governor and
hia appointees to understand that
everything under his control would
have to be conducted on honest
methods. As a result Illinois has
been blessed with an administration
that has been the best of any in the
whole history, of the state.
The great bulk of the state Uxes
or about 12.500.000 yearly, is re
quired for the maintenance of the
state institutions the prisons, the
normal schools and the various asy
lums. Gov. Altgeld, a successful
business man himself, at once aaw
that in these institutions was the
place for the application of business
methods. He accordingly called the
trustees and superintendents of pub
lic institutions to Springfield and
gave them these instructions, in
structions which should be read
aloud by the head of every tax paying
family every morning before break
fast as a practical application of the
spirit oi tne morning prayer:
First. Do not put a man upon
the pay roll who is not absolutely
Second. Do not pay higher sala
ries in an institution than the ser
vices or ability which yon get would
Third Do not keep a man an hour
after it is discovered that he is not
just the right man for the place, no
matter who recommended him. or
what political influence he may pos
sess. Fourth Require vigilance and
careful attention of every employe
and promptly discharge any ap
poitee who is guilty of any serious
negiect oi amy.
Fifth Make out a list of articles
that will be needed for a given time,
describing each article fully, and
have the typewritist make ten or
twelve copies of tins.
Sixth Send these copies to as
many different business bouses deal'
ing in the line of goods required for
bids, to be accompanied by samples
where necessary. Then accept the
lowest old, reserving in each case the
right to reject any goods that may be
Seventh File these bids, together
with the list upon which they were
based lor a reasonable time, so that
they can be inspected by any state
officer, if desired.
The enforcement of the above hon
est business methods is what has
made Gov. Altgeld strong with the
taxpayers; it is what made republi
can legislators like Jonathan Mer
riam coming to the legislature
hating Altgeld and go away admiring
mm. Any reader can see that tne
above rules lav down the honest.
open, competitive system. Under
the old system supplies were bought
by purchasing agents on the quiet.
Under the Altgeld system the pur
chasing agents were abolished, mak
ing a saving alone of 125.000 in sal
aries per year, and supplies are pur
chased in the open market and by
competition. Under the competitive
system the cost of maintaining the
state institntions for 18 months was
1476.482 less than it was under the
old loose political system. This is a
great record. Partisan abuse will
not hide these facts. They speak
volumes to the tax payer and to the
citizen. The people want such busi
ness methods in public affairs,
