MODEL CITY CHARTER
Altraot of An Address by Dr. James, of the Wharton School of Finance and Eonomy. BETTER CITY RULE IS NEEDED. Dr. James Forcefully Points Out Some of the Ways to Seoure Desired Reforms. Minneapols. Dtec. to.--The following I' the tabstract of an aIldress on the hlodiel City 'harter. by Dr. EdmunII J. James, professor in the W harton School of SPlinnce and Economy. t'ulv'ersity of I'ennslyt"anla, read before the Re..cnd National Conference on (lood 'City tov ertlment, now In seeslon in this city. The question of a model city cha:rter Ia a purely relative one depending on tempo.ral atnd local conditions. A form of g.vort.ll.mnt 0 hich worked well a gent-rlatIon l. i th. tnited States Is plbdihly ttnullteti for us now. A form of governlmelt a vich works well in ):uropetn countries to-day ti probably not well adapted for Americati ccndl tions. The model city charter for Amer iScan cities i. the charter under which the business which ,devolves upon. the modern munlcipality in the U'nited States can he most e.lciently performed. This is to be ascertained by a study of prevalikng conditions in this country at the prevent time and not by reference to the history of ior own cities in the past or to the conditions of Europenu cities In the present. The study of the pas. then, in America or the present in urope. I.t not what we need most, but the study of the present In the United States. In this statement. there is no in tention to belittle the Importance of studying history or of examining for eign condition-both have their own justltfcaton, both are necessary--su premely necesseay-4. a part of gen eral culture and as showing what has been done at other times and places, but neither could throw much Illght on the problem in hand. vis: bow to ac cosnmpMh similar or better results here and now. WMl we must admit that In the gov. ernment of cities we have thus far failed in one seoe. at least, and Europe has asleoeded relatively: yet in another scme we are further along toward an ult ati solution of the city govern meat blem than Europe. Modern ties" cenot be governed in the long run ! countries except upon the bads of nlversal suffrage, popular rep r enOS m and popular control. We already pon this basis and are slowly solving the problems involved, though they are rendered doubly difA cult by the ccmplicatlons of the foreign element We have not yet succeeded. It is true, but we are, at least. grappling with the problem with a certainty of sohlvng It the long run; while Europe has not even beee brought face to face with it in sodh a way as to realize the gravity of the situation. European states will be rendtn men here to study our municipal government before a gen eiaen .H passed away., because we shall have solved some problem with which they will be unsuccessfully wretng. No American city could be unaedat all on the plan adopted In England or France or Germany. and I am sure that it will not be possible to m.ange European clties on their pres ent plan after universal suffrage shall have done its perfect work. The method of government by c.ommittees. for ex ample, so ohameterilstio of English cit Iee has broken down absolutely here and will surely break down as abso. lutely there, when their conditions be come mote li.thar own. come mo.re .i oer own. An ideal city charter must, therefore. take account of time and place, reck oning with what st possible under ex slting conditions. No city charter can be an ideal one for American condi tions thlch relies for its excellence up on a limited suffrage-limited either by the possessnon of property or so-called education-for the simple reason that such a charter could not be successfully worked. It would arouse such popular antagonism and distrust that it could not effect the good results which might seem on a priori grounds likely to flow from such an arrangement. Accepting then the principles of uni versal manhood (and possibly also womanhood) suffrage, popular repre sentation, and popular local control; what are the elements of a model city charter for American conditions? Such a charter should give the great est possible amount of self-gnvernment to the community. The locality should really have the right to ftame its owl, charter, in all matters of detail, provid. Ing for its own scheme of organliarton, determining the powers and functleh's of its gov'ternment It should he, as far as possile. auttonomou4, solf-det.rmin. Ing anrid InIlependent of statt. control, either legislative or admilnstra ti\.v. .te ar, iniidbtltid to Miissout I and th." far westerl' states for the fit 't ni,, ornmeots In this directin. The mere wo.lk of framing these charters by th, . anlt,oil ties thnemselves would do mire lto lirouse popular interest in city gioverrrntlrnt than all our municipal :Pate'..9 or ni -rel-atlons.

It would be better to have the members of the most nu merous body chosen in three or five member districts with a similar aDPi cation of the cumulative vote. Tle method would give full recognition to the principle of geographical represents tion. at the same time it would allow a , onhlderable recognition of the princl ple ofb proportional representation, a princlple which, however, objectionable when applied to state or national legll lation. seems certainly well adapted to work out good results in local mat tera. With a system based on universal suffrage. and popular control, with full lcal authority so that pdpular govern ment shbll have at fair chance in cities. with an Independent executive in con trol of an efmlcient civil servitce. as stated by a system of representation which would allow intelligrent minorl ties a fair opportunity to exercise their legitimate influence it Is believed that the formal organisation of city gov ernment would answer to the funda mental needs of American conditions and would thim offer an adequate ma chinet-ry for the expression of our civic Ilfe resulting at no distant date in a great improvement in our city govern ments.

The selling of the stampe and the obtaining of returns has taken the promoters of the charity much longer than was expected, but those to hnom the stamps have been consigned for sale have sent Instructions that Mol lie's limb. could be ordered some weeks ago and Mollier' journey to Chicago is for the purploe of having them properly fitted. The makers of the limbs think that If all goes well, Mollie will be able to return home in about a week, and that she will come on her new feet "The new limbs will cost $175 and In addition Molle has provided for her the necessary clothing, shoes, etc.. to ruit her age. which is now about 14 years. Through the kindness of the of. ftialis of the Nurthern Pacific and Wilsonsin Central lines. tree transpor tation for Mollie and her sister, from Mandan to Chicago and return, has been provided, for which little Mollie and her friends feel highly indebted. "It will perhaps interest the many kind people who took the trouble to gather stamps for Mollie to know that the gathering and clipping of the stamps Is but a small part of the task of Porting and preparing them for cal. lectors who buy them. And only those who undertake such a task which, to say the least. is a herculean one, can realize how exActing the average stamp buyer is. Thousands and thousands of the stamps were thrown aside as being ureless; either there was not much Ink on them, or they were trimmed too close, or they were otherwise damaged.
