Model Municipal Code
By H. 0. Stechhan.
90+000+SOW NIFORM government in all the cities and towirs of Indiana
*ie the end which the nlew munhtticipal code enacted by the
* General Assembly this year seeks to achieve. It marks a
distinct step forward in city government, and is intended to
work a number of important reforms in the gerral conduct
of municipal affairs, placing them on more of a business
The code repeals all so-called individual city charters
and separate incorporation acts, with special gmnts. under
which the different municipalities of Indiana have been organized heretofore.
and extends the same broad principles of local self-governmwnt to all. Owing
to the varied systems of management that these cities and towns have had in
the past, the exuerience of one contributed but litle to the wvell-being ot its
neighbor. each being compelled to learn the same Iesson for itself. This act
insp;red the code, and it was draft?d for the express purpose of meeting the
wants of all similar communities within the confines of a state. Indiana s
municipal code is constructed after the pattern of the city charter that )re
scribed the government of Indianapolis, the state's capital city. from early in
1S91 until the middle of April, 1905. when the new law went into effect. Thor
oughly tried and tested during the fourteen years that it was in force, the In
dianapclis charter came to be regar'ded as one of the best to be found in our
In some cuarters. what is known as the "city-nade charter" is the most
approved form of municipal law at the present time. This means a body of
law that has been made and adopted by the )eo)l( themselves for whom it is
intended, after which it has been ratified uy the legislature of the state, as dis
tinguished from a code of laws originating in the General Assembly, as most
City charters do. Constitutional provisions in Alissouri and California author
ize "city-made charters" for cities having more than 100.000 )population. Kan
sas City. -Nissouri is the latest municii):dity to make its own governmnent.
Fourteen years ago Indianapolis. through n committee of public-spirited cizti
zens. built for local needs the boldy of law which the Indiana legislature al
proved at the time: and so satisfactory nas been its operation ir. the inte'rimn
that this year's assembly saw fit to apply the provisicns of this organic law,
"city-made' according to the latest meaning of the term, to all tae ceiLis 0f
the state. For the larger cities the sane machinery of governimnent employed
in In(Lanaltolis for fourteen years has beei adopted, though minor modifica
tioins have been made to adjust it to the varying needs of the smaller ones1.
Where a sort of governmental chaos has eXisted in the local affairs of mumci
palities within the state, this act is ex)ec!ci ted) tbr'ing aboutl systenatic regu
Missioning to the Ich vi
By St. Clair McKIeiway.
'MORALIST in this own who has supporwa foreign missions
at his own experse, and has been keenly intercsted in re
forms of al sorts, says that hei has concluded to quit and in
ject some glimmerings of morals into the heads of people
who have been sorely negIected. T'he slums he will leave
alone. for the residents are laboring up the heights cc re
spectability and are liable co arrive at the top, in time, but
the people who have been sitting complacently at the top
are struggling so hard to -et down that they really need
looking after. So he wants to do something for our senators, and bankers,
and insurance presidents, and railroaI men, and pig butchers, and plumbers,
and leading lawyer s.
Now, this sounds funny when you hear it, but considering the matter for
a minute one realizes that its amutsing side is not so conspicutotts as the seri
ous. The faults or' the slums are due to ignorance and the surroundings of
squalor: to evil parentage and the absence of ideals: but the sins of the men
in positions of public and private trust, which have been so freely expos5ed of
late, and which are even raising up parties of r-etribution. cannot be excused on
any stuch grounds. These men knev:' what they wer'e doing when they app~ro
printed funds for the purchase of legislatures and congressional committees,
when they drew on their treasuries tor- gifts, loans, dinners, the traveling ex
penses of frieunds and families. and sa :ries to favorites that never were
earned: they knew the law when they broke it and made forbidden deals with
other men and corportations to check comnpetition and liberty of trade; they
knew the law when they defied it and adultertetd, even poisoned. food prod
ucts' and~ they knew the moral law when they made fallso or misleading state-I
ments conecring their acts.
The~ slum" man live's at a disadvantage, M issioariehs, tenement in'spectors,
health flcers, all sorts of intruder's tvarch into his little Inat as fr-eely as if it
were the chy h lall, and reouire him to do many things that are not to his lik
ing, wheras the. rich maa keeps missionaries out of his house and even di
rects the b.mier to kick them without tear of rebuke or arrest, Therefore the
~ian of campain by which our reformner inten.ds to gain the eat' of certain
tnancers~' and statesmen in this city and of eaptains, of industry in C'hicago
has not 'een revetcaedd, if it has been formulated. T:-tey might be reached by
mail, ':osibly. or by telehone, or by the ditstlier attorney: but by whiatever
mens -tpas :o many of us that they ought to be tprayed for, if they can
not be directl ersutaded to abandon their v~ays and~ retura to the moral life.

pensary. Mr. C. F. Norton. the man
ager of the glass factory. was put on
the stand. He had testified for two
hours Friday afternoon and was on
the stand from 10:30 a. in.. until 2
p. m. The cross-examination has not
There was singular business meth
ods brought to light . For instance,
the Carolina Glass company was so
anxious to get the Ylaceus Glass com
pany out of its way that it paid the
Flaccus people of Pittsburg $1.650
and received ii return the privilege of
filling and unailling part of an order
for 150 ears or bottles. But that con
tract secured with so much expense
and difficulty. was never filled. Con
current with it was another contract
for 100 cars awarded to thte Carolina
company, and this order was filled, as
were several others in the succeeding
years. but that contract for 22 cars
has never been filled.
When the hearing was resumed Mr.
C. H. Norton. manager of the Carolina
Glass works, was on the stand. He
said that the stoekholders of the Caro
lina lass company are practically the
same now as they were at the begin
ning of the existence of the corpora
tion. Those who had dropped out
were: W. G. Childs, B. D. Miller and
W. B. S. Whaley. Mr. Childs had
sold his stock, amounting to $1,000,
since the first of January, witness
Mr. Norton declared that the com
pany has no fund for "the promotion
of business." The capital stock of
the company is $60.000, all paid in.
Mr. W. G. Childs had sold his stock to
Mr. E. G. Seibels. None of the stock
holders own the stock in trust. When
ever dividend is paid. it is charged on
the cash book and then transferred.
Mr. Lyon presented the book on which
dividends were recorded. He then
asked about the surplus fund of the
Mir. Lyon thought this was trespass
ing on the company's private affairs.
Mr. Lyon declared that this com
pany has a charter from the State and
the committee has a legitimate right
to inquire the amount -of surplus and
undivided profits. This information
might be of great value to the State in
the future. The witness could not
answer the question anyway. The
books showed an account of $42,000
'profit and loss" in December in ad
dition to assets and liabilities.
Witness said that lhe signed the con
1 racts withI the State dispensary. He
keeps a carbon copy of contract and
of letter written by the glass company
to the dispensary. The contract says
nothing about the weight of the bot
tIes. i. Lyon wanted to know if the
weight has not a lot to do with the
order. A bottle with more glass
woul be strong~er. provided tihe glass
is evenly distributed in the blowing,
said MIr. Norton. In answer to ques
tions lie said that their bottles are
Mr. Lyon put in evidence the con
tinact with the Djixie Glass company in
J 893 in whiIich weighit was specified.
M3r. Norton had rep resented the
Dixie company at. that time).
