Another Large Commission

Special to Ihc KrBHIva NFWB.
Woodbridge, March 9.—"It makes |
no difference who is In power In the|
township government here, but the
question is, who la In control of the
men In power?"
That was the declaration made by
Martin Γ'. Devlin, oC Trenten, prosecu
tor of Mercer county, in addressing a
large commission government ma.-»s
meeting In the High School audito
rium here last night. The speakers,
Mr. Devlin and George Tj. McNutt. of
Now York, were warmly greeted and
expounded the purposes of commis
sion government In no uncertain tones.
Michael Coll, commltteeman-at-large,
presided at the session and at the
close of tho speeches, said:
"If commission government is
adopted next Tuesday I will step out
of office and welcome It. It is a|
Mr. McNutt, a commission govern-1
mont expert, gave a comprehensive !
account of the growth of the move
ment, declaring It is a move for big
ger and better men In office. H«s told
of the bad conditions in Des Moines
before tho commission was adopted.
When the new form was adopted, the
same old gang of politicians were
elected but they found conditions dif
ferent. They found that they had to
earn their salaries. There was no
invisible government then in Des
Moines. The people were in power.
"Commission government," said Mr.
McNutt, "offers to a community the
simplest thing to do business with: Itj
lis more democratic than any other
jform and it takes nothing from the
I present government. It only offers to

"Not ho long »po I was In snch &

deserted me entirely.
"To make matters worse I became
badly constipated. At night, when I
should have been sleeping, I'd roll and
toss restlessly; morning found me all
worn out, unfit for work. The medi
cine recommended for my troubJe had
no more effect than so much water; 1
was badly discouraged.
"Then I happened to s«e in the

is your money being spent? Are you
satisfied? Municipal government is
only housekeeping as it were.
"VVliat If the present administration
under the old form of government
here wants to do something you don't
want It to do?" asked Mr. Devlin.
"What can you do about It? You can
see the political bosses and cuss the
council, that's all. T'nder commis

of the referendum. By a vote of the
people you can force reforms to bettor
