The city council has taken a wise
Step in opening its meetings to theI
newspaper reporters. In doin; so It
has taken the public into its confi
dence and removed a fruitful source of
cmilplaint. The people of tile city are
entitled to a knowledge of Couneil's

that the councilmen have reclolgniied

Thie a1:davits as to corrupt prate
iees in the recent. primary election
furnished this paper by Mr. W. , It.
Richey, .f r., today are convincing proof
of the adv'isablity of throwing further
safeguards around the primary. Mlr.
Rlichey himself has taken the initial
step in this dirc tion, having intro
(uced a resolut.ion in the exeenitive
committee meeli in g Friday recinmi
mending that steps he i taken looking
toward the adoption of the Austral ian
ballot system. Iii view of his protest
at the nomination of Gov. Mannin g, ie
cause of alleged illegal practice( in
the primary, the position that .\b.
Richey takes now is ftie logical an'!
Colmendable one -he would go as far
as po:'ible' toward removing the possi
blities fo e' ('.tetion frauds.
