SHERMAN ANSWERS
SOCIALIST'S
QUESTIONS
((ontinued lrtn Prage one)
Swtlr showing how the legislative af
fairs of a city made up but a small part
of the duties of its officers and rarely
if ever was the cause of the evils and
coltti luns that it is aimed to correct
with the commission plan.
Question-As a matter of fact, is it
not true that the experts which it has
eien contended the commission form
of governmuent would attract to its de
peartmental positions have failed to
either seek or secure the offices? Give
instancee of experts securing depart

Answer-J have not contended that

men and methods that have made the
success in every city. However, the
c elueiet ona of nuecrocs cities under
tihe piin have often appointed and em
pelyed some of the very best and most
able meelt in jiarticular lines of work
to handle special problems, with telling
effect.
Question-ilus it not been demon
strated that under tile election-at-large
system that the teisiness and hon-ton
sectiens receive the bulk of the tin
provemnntes?
Answer-No! El-ipphaticallf no! Such
has been disproved in many instances.
No stronger argument against this
could be found than in my own city,
where I have fully explained what we
did in the district containing 10,000 peo
pin who, as a class, fought tht plan
when it was adopted. Since that timte
they have seen a great itght.
Question-To the extent that oct
state and national goverlnlents are
compused of representatives from va
rious parts of their respective jurisdic
tioes, givieg to tht se bodies a know(
edge and insight into the conditions
and desirgs ef the people everywhere, is
it not likewise desirable that a city's
representation should be comeposed of
counclmen fromt various parts of the
city"
Answer-There are very few states
tmen in ilny party but who agree that
politices of any kind should Ile elinti
nated in cities. Ward polities are the
worst type iit existence. The system
tends to tear down city government by
strengthening the ward Interests, cre
ates dissention, etc. Cotnettissiuon gov
ernment Is all for the city at large,
devoid of ward influences.
Question-Is it not conceded that
the German and Engtait cities are the
best governed ill the world, and that
their city conllcis are composed of
from Soi to too members?
Answer-Coun'ell of German cities
have at their hlads a single man who

Question-Is it not it fact that the
plan does not iliocuclate efficiency,
honesty and subserviency to the wishes
of the masses into the systems of the
commissliaoers? And are not the fol
tiowing statements il regard to the
practlcal working out of the commins
alol plan in Des Moines absolutely
true?
"Ill 1t08 the old council submitted to
a referendums vote tile question of

I submit the question, giving the people
the choice of reaffirming their former

bers of the trttes and labor council,
representing every craft, alitost, in tihe
labor world (the Iibor organizatIons
being against the plan *when it was
adopted), took it vote us to whether
they desired to return to the ward
5ystem'n. Out of that 100 Wien only two
voted in tavot of the old plan. These
thing seeml to indicate that the wish
es of the nausses are being subserved
and that efficiency and honesty gen
erally prevails.
As to the mnrtuet-boost, matter, I
have ito definite information. Thern
has been a squtbble of seme kind over
the liutter lit which the "east side"
and the "west side" of the city are
of different opinilons. There is on
doubtedly good cause for whatever'ltc
tihn has been taken. Even if such has
not been the cuse the matter does not
Irgue against the suceiss of the plan
In t(es Moines or against the general
features of the measure.
Question-Is it not true that while
the Des Moines plan provides that It is
a lnisdenieunor for any officer or enm
pioye of the city to accept a pass or
frank from any of the public service
corporutions, that it has recently conie
to light thatt not less than 6.+ of such
officers and etnpine' are riding on
free passes furnished by the street car
'ompauny?
The Iowa state law provides that
transportation companies may grant
passes to certain classes of city tm
ployts. If others, not included in the
law, have accepted passes they have
done wrong. They should be recalled.
But because one man does wrong we
do not condemn humanity as a whole;
because one church member backslides
we do not condemn his church. There
can be no argument here against coln
nistilon government.
Question-Is it not true that during
last winter there was quite an 1,1 -
detnic of typhoid fever in Des Moines,
that a former city physieiln, it report
to the commisslonerm, had called tit
tenlion to the danger of fulling to ex
l)nmine the water supply from tillie to
lIme to preveit the typhoid gerll'Truin
getting itt Its work, and that the re
port woo pigeon-holed? And then
when the epidemic was at its height,
didn't the comninssuoners import an
expert fromt NeN' York. who made
practically the same report and the
senme recommtendations as the forier
city physician. and also present it bill
for over $1,600 for the 10 days hu spent
In the city?
Answer-Des Moines did have a
at Ige with typhoid fever.. The cotn
missioners did seek the aid of a spe
cialist and if they paid him $1,600 the
money was well spent if he caused the
saving of any lives. Public boards
of health under the comm1isulo0 plan,
are, wherever tihey have come undvr

satisfactory. Even the most carefully
guarded communities borletines be.
come' a prey to disease of this nature.
I am Inclined to believe that every
thing posalble to prevent such Was
done at Des MoInes.
Question-Is It not true that during
former administrations in Des Molines
that the snow on the sidewalks il the
residence districts had been required to
be ret'oved within a certain i1mit d
time after the snowfall, and that when
the property- owners were negligent,
tuie city removed the snow and charged
the cost to the property owners? Is
it not true that durbig the past winter
the snow has been allowed to remain
on the sidewalks, and that several ac
cidents have occurred as a result of tilt'
slippery conditions? Is it not also
true that the comlnllssiont r of the
streets and public itlprovements, who
has charge of this matter, and who
gets $3,000 a year. was absent frott
the city for five weeks during the wil
