way possible and no foot pedals will
be used in (he management of the

The .wheels, while a trifle larger

all ungainly in appearance. The body
of the machine will be similar to the
other moderate priced runabouts fam

Several matters of particular import

The present indications are that
before the -16th general assembly
adjourns at Springfield, it will have
enacted into a law the bill now before
both houses of that body enabling
cities of the slate to adopt a commis
sion form of government. The move
ment in favor of this measure has
been constantly growing throughout
the stale, and frequent communica
tions to the members of he legisla
ture urging its passage.
Inasmuch as the movement is en
tirely ticui-partisan in its nature, and
the bill does not -impose the system
upon any city, it is altogether likely
that it will not find serious opposition
in either branch of the legislature.
The measure has already made re
markable progress in the senate and
that it will be passed by that body
is now practically certain.

An important meeting of the sen

held Wednesday afternoon, the com
mittee giving up the. entire afternoon
to a discussion of the bill. A large
number of the members cf the llli
nots commission plan association
were present and took ixirt in the
discussion. A number of changes in
the bill prepared by the association
were suggested by the committee,
none of which, however, affect the
principle involved, and all of which
were acceptable? to the association.
A sub-committee was appointed tr
redraft the bill, and the measure was
reported out for favorable action the
following morning. The senate is giv
ing the measure its serious and hon
est consideration. There is no dispo

and without a doubt it will be placed
upon its passage in that body in the

The idea of the commission plan is
to reduce the management of munic

basis as possible. P-y the provisions
of the bill, there can be no party poli

The bill provides for government
of cities by a mayor and four com
missioners, each commissioner to be
responsible for a certain municipal

lic utility franchises must be referred
to a vote of the people and that a
certain per cent of the voters may,
by petitioif, call a special election for
