The program of retrenchment and reform, which Governor Ritchie is preparing is based on the consolids lion of the several departments of the State Government, and will result In the reduction of the large and un , wleldy force of employes, and In many Instances *ln the reduction ot winkles, will soon be ready tor pub lication. In Ibis plan It Is proposed to prevent the many duplications which • Utw exists 111 the cumbersome system of commissions, which has grown, with a steady growth during the last , twenty years tor thla present sys- ' tern of Government by commission In Maryland, is n growth almost entire ly of the period since 1910. In the past twelve years, the legislature •haa created the Hood Hoads Commis sion. the f’nhlli Service Commission, the State Tax Commission, the State Accident Commission. - the Board of f’rkton Control. The Conservation Commission ami ha* enlarged the powers of the Wale Health Commis sion, the Lunacy Commission, besides creating numerous hoard* ’ of lesser Importance, many of which really overlap each other and result tn no Uitle confusion in the Ad ministraglop of the functions of the ' State Government and what at the present lime of abnormally high taxes la of special Importance and tKo large sums from the State Treasury. All these bodies. Which together from a i uinberaome and unwieldly, whole, ire to be teduced, according to the 'Governors plan, to certain compact and efficient boards, composed of a few able end skillful men. who's duties and powers are to be carefully defined and limited, and who's ex pense* are to lie rigidly regulated Dy law. Gue Commission after another bn* been created by the General As aeinbly. often more for the purpose \ l making official i aval turns for lon gnry spoilsman, thh for any Mai necessity to the Stale Government, and usually the men who were select ed iu hold (he job* were on hand to help puss (he hills through the law inaktng body As a result, the tax payers have had loaded upon the Treasury, an army of office holders— in nut n few Instances two or three inefficient men are paid by the pub lic to do wbal are realty competent man ought to do. Twenty year* ago two or three rooms In Baltimore were -sufficient to accommodate all the ."Hate Officials whose duties were per i formed away from iho State Capital. .Now whole floors In several of lha largest office buildings In Baltimore ire crowded by Commission* of ait soihh and kind*, and their hundreds ot subordinates, literally making up •i small unity, and coating hundreds of thousands of, dollar* every year. And all these Commissions -are mak ing for more room, more money and more people in aid them In their work That there Is much waate or labor and efficiency, and no little waste of money, ia apparent to all who are familiar with the way public .work I* done For nearly a year the ,imeminent has been making un ex hausted and thorough examination of ,all these, mailers nod has reached certain definite concluaiona In regard to them In a short time therefore he proposea to make certain recommen dations a* to what he thinks should )>c done, in order to give the people , lime lo consider them at their leisure and ob their merits. Heretofore Gov ernors have reserve# their recom mendations until the opening of the General Assembly, Wficn they have presented their views null plan* 111 .■Massage* to the two Mouse*. The /ilaii of the present Governor seem* fo be a great Improvement over the 'old system Making It public months Indore the law body meets, will give Hi* people an opportunity to look Into all these mutters tor themselves, and will open them for discussion during the campaign in which the men who are to vote on them at An napolis. will have a chance to discuss ithem before the iieople, and find out what they think of them. In this way. the voters can pass on the plans of the Executive ut the polls and he will ,'lnd out whether public sentiment Is .with him or against him. There Is no doubt of the faal that the Governor's program Is the most revolutionary ever placed before the people of Maryland, and will bring about great changes In the effective ness of the Slate Government. There is alo no doubt that It* enactment will greatly reduce the expenses of the public service, which has been going on In u sblpabml, Inefficient .way, a* a slow growth, ever since the ■f'lvll War. now nearly sixty years ago. Most of the officials during all 1 that period of time have been honest and faithful men, and whatever evils have existed, have been those ot a system of administration, and legis lation, which the people ot the Stale have Inn* outgrown. Now that State* aa well n all sorts of government agencies are obliged to retrench and economise, It 1h well for the -people of i Maryland to give consideration to these problems u solution of which ' the Governor Is preparing to propose > to them.
