Corner artland Street Before an audience composed of the members of the Board of Trade and their riends,Mayor Frederick W. Eton nelly of Trenton, NY J., last night ex plained in detail the advantagesof the commission form of government. His speech was Interesting in the 'extreme, and he had figures to show the econ omy of the commission form over, tho present Bridgeport system of govern ment. . , - - Since the establishment of the new form of government " in Galveston, Texas, after the flood in 1900, the rapid rehabituatlon of 'the city under the commission form has- caused ' public attention in all parts of the coun try to be directed to it. The plan was taken up by several of the small ev Texan cities after its worth had . been demonstrated in Galveston It was then that the attention of other cities, wAere the old form of government promoted graft and ex travagance In public affairs, was drawn to this model form of government he declared. 1 It was not long te-Vre several of the largest of the western and middle west cities adopted com mission government. It met with great success wherever accepted, and its worth was so strongly demonstrat ed that a number of eastern cities be gan to give it serious consideration. Trenton, N. J., which was at that time noted for waste and extravagance in municipal affairs, began the serious consideration of the commission- form two years before it was finally adopt ed. Speeches were made for and against It, and the old time politicians were finally put to route. . , ' Meets Modern Conditions. Mayor Donnelly declared that to his mind the long felt want that the new plan has supplied lies in the modern ization of the city -charter provisions. Conditions predominating fifty years ago were now unimportant factors, and he declared that the system of half a .entury ago was no . longer able to grapple with the present situation. He declared that the American city re trogresses instead of progresses under the old , form. A municipal corpora tion, the same aa a business corpora tion, must live , in the atmosphere if the present if it desires to taker its place in the 'rank of the foremost American, cities. J, He declared, that the commission form met Immediate success in all cit ies . where it was accepted because it embodies the modern features which are lacking In the charters: of many of the cities of the country. He de clared that the important ' character istics of the commission form plan as adopted in American cities are: (1) "The placing of the municipal governing authority in a, small body of men." . - ' i ' , ' ' ' (2) "The election at large Instead, of by wards."' . ' ! " (3) "The power to exercise adminis trative arid legislative -functions' and the privilege ' of appointment by the board." (4) "The placing of each . oomtmls sloner In charge of a definite depart ment and making him responsible to the people for its proper and intelli gent management." (5) "The power given to the. people to secure honest and efficient govern ment through the medium of the in itiative and ' referendum, and the re call. The intrinsic value of the com mission government realy . rests on these cardinal principles." ' One-Alan Control. The mayor declared that' one of the essential characteristics, of the com mission form Is the placing of one man in absolute control of one department and making him solely responsible for Its affairs. , In New Jersey there are five commissioners appointed as heads of the following - departments; De partment of public affairs, department of revenue and finance, department Of public safety, department of streets and public improvements and the de partment of parks and public "property- The recall, he declared', was insepar able with the commission plan. An official, realizing that his - every act and recommendation decides his con tinuance in office, will be forced to strive for public approbation. v Under Bridgeport's municipal gov ernment, it ,is possible for the admin istration official to use his power to wards private promotion and favorit ism instead of f or the good of the people, and, because of his tenure of office, it Is impossible to secure his re moval until its expiration. Under the new form, the penalty for graft and dishonesty-is sure-and effectual. Up on actual, proof of incompetency, dis satisfied . citizens may resort to the recall, and' remove a commissioner notwithstanding that he . may still have several years of his original term to serve. 'To sum up briefly,' the advantages claimed - .were-;. centralization of re sponsibility upon a small number of elected officials, non-partisan, elec tions, abolition of ward lines, economy of administration, coupled with great er efficiency, application of business methods, the '"referendum, initiative, and recall,- and the simplification of the system with wide publicity. The publio subordinate is more ef ficient under the new form, declared the speaker, because- the commission er, realizing that a clerk's inefficiency would reflect upon him, demands as much as is demanded in a private cor poration. Other marks of the effici ency are shown with the abolition of salaried boards for the government of the several departments, the public transaction of public 'business, and the businesslike method of - purchasing public supplies. v The Trenton commission at the present time is giving great attention to new legal sources of revenue. The tax dodger will no longer escape, for Trenton Is to employ men to trace them, with the result that thousands of dollars which were diverted from the public treasury will be collected. . Karris Money For City. In Trenton, public utility corpora tions were required to live up to their franchises. Where the street car ser vice was poor, it now gives Trenton the best service in the state of New Jersey. The water department was made self-supporting, and the first year, where it had formerly shown a loss, it had earned-enough, to pay for the installation of J 70,000 of sewers and mains.

" In one year, with $200,000 of paving let, the city made a saving of $20,000. The streets are kept cleaner, at a far smaller cost than under the old form. One police Judge and one clerk now does the work of two judges and two clerks. The city has changed from a poorly light ed one, to the best lighted one in the state. '. t v i "Page after page," said Mayor Don nelly in conclusion, "could be" devoted to our accomplishments and results under commission government. But this is . unnecessary. Commission gov ernment has come to stay,, not only in Trenton, but in every municipality that has adopted w it. Convincing proof of this rests "in the fact that over three hundred American cities of all "sizes and descriptions have forsaken their old system of govern ment for the commission form," and in not a single instance has a city, reverted to its former " antiquated rule." ' V ' " ; v After the address by Mayor Don nelly, the cycle car manufactured by' the American Cycle company, of this city was demonstrated. There was a Trumbull model on display. A lecture on the merits of this car was given toy C. M. Fobs of the Trumbull plant. .

Many of the older residents of Bridgeport will b& glad to learn that their compatriot, fellow townsman and business competitor has again re turned for a few days . to the haunts of his younger days. Maor Samuel C. Kingman, at present retired in Washington, ' Conn., arrived, yester day, tp spend a few days with his grand-daughter, Miss Mary Emily Buckingham, who will- graduate -with the class of . 1914, at Bridgeport High school. . It was 58 years ago, yesterday, that Major Kingman first -came to this city as the pioneer contractor of the Wheeler and Wilson sewing machine Company. He had come with it from Waterbury, where but 7- employes graced the pay-rolls. He is the-only surviving contractor of the early days of the company in Bridgeport, but bears the distinction of having been one of the civic forces in the community at that time. He was a member of the common council, a police- commissioner as well as serving upon the school boards. He early be came identified with the Masonic Or der and is a member of Corinthian lodge. He took an active interest la military matters and was a crack shot. The Bethesda mission carries his name apjng" the founders. Though 85 years of age. Major Kingman, is apparently hale and hearty and will spend several days here renewing old acquaintances.
