"The movement for tho establish? ment of commission "govornmonts in American cities owes a large part of Its success to tho fact that it is a sim? ple form of government, easily under? stood, and providing a short ballot and a simplified form of nomination and election," he said. Chicago and Philadelphia were point? ed to as ovidenco of tho wider use of the municipal primary. Secretary WoodrulT referred to tho reported use Of sums as large us $1100,000 by candi? dates In Chicago. "The remedy for this difficulty lies In the direction of restricting the amount to he expended by the Individ? ual for election expenses," he said. "Tho Thraldom of Massachusetts Cities." second address of tho morning session, was delivered by Harvey N. Shcpard, of Boston. He told of tho utter helplessness of the Bay State municipalities, which are llterolly crea? tures of the Legislature, with no pow? ers except those expressly delegated to them by their charters. Their every action, he. told the assembly, was with? out force except when aided by legis? lative enactment?a condition of af? fairs which militates strongly against effective municipal government.

' While the problems of the small City are not as large nor as insistent as those of the large cities, said Mr. Pltt man, they nevertheless harbor abuses, not the least among wihlch, in his opin? ion, .ire looseness In the administra? tion of public business, and an almost criminal propensity for granting fran? chise:; without limit. The small city, according to Mr. Pittmnn, is still Inefficiently equipped with competent boards to provide san-l iturv surroundings, proper Inspection of buildings, adequate regulation of hours of labor for women and ohll dron, proper inspection of foodstuffs and publicity of administrative pro? ceedings- ? .Mr Plttman advocated the adoption j of the merit system to do away with What Is In the smaller cities a fruitful, cause of Inefficiency in administrative Officers?the common distribution of public offices among many petty offi? cers with noiiminl salaries "The of? fices." ho said, "are a sort of side line to the official's private employment. Obviously the public would be bettor served by a consolidation of the olllces and salaries, and the elimination of the 'side, line' service.'' Ctty Oovernment by C'ommtMKlon. Tho morning session concluded with an address on "City Government by Commission," by Richard S. Childs, secretary of the Short Ballot Organi? zation. He made out it atrons case for the commission plan, which, ho said, to put It In tho most modest terms, is already a relative success because It Is more democratic?that is, more sensitive to public opinion. And it Is more sensitive to public opinion because it makes for a unification of powers, placing the power where tho people can Bee It and watch It- This watchfulness, he 3tnted further. Is rendered more effective by the short ballot, which Is one of the features of the commission plan. The' subject was further discussed at the round table luncheon, which fol? lowed immediately uftor adjournment at 1 o'clock, and was presided over by Dr. A. B. Hart, of Harvard University. The speaking was opened by Admiral F. E Chadwick, of Newport, R. 1., whose views were very much ut varl anco with those expressed by Mr. Childs. atTd who advocated the so called Newport plan, as a far more practical scheme of ctty government Others who took part In the discussion were Richard Henry Dana, of Cam? bridge. Mass ; President S. C. Mitchell, of the University of South Carolina; Robert Trent Pnlne, of Uuston; Robert S. Blnkerd. of New York; Professor B. M. Rastnll, of the University of Wisconsin, and Harvey N. Shepurd, of Boston. The afternoon meeting. President William Dudley Foulkc presiding, opened with the reading of a report on "Excess Condemnation and Special Assessments." by Secretary C. R. Woodruff, In tho absence of its au? thor. Lawson Purdy. president of the Board of Taxes and Assessments of New York City. It stated that while the principle fo excess condemnation has been common for many years to has . ben common for many ynrs, to acquire more land than that Imme? diately needed for some public Im? provement, for the purpose of safe? guarding the work in one way or an othor, cases of Its application In the United States are rare, and. its legal status even questioned. The subject, the report stated, is still in process of investigation, ,and a full report of the work will shortly be published in one of the National Municipal league series. Massachu? setts, according to R'chard Henry Dana, of Cambridge, who commented on -the report before entering Into j hts address, which followed next oh ' tho program, has recently legalized excess condemnation by legislative I enactment. Antitoxin for Municipal Wnntc. Mr. Dana's subject was "Antitoxin ' for Municipal Waste and Corruption." It was In the nature of a preliminary report of a committee, of which ho Is chairman, appointed by the National Civil Hen-Ice Reform and Munlclpnl Leagues Jointly to Btudy the subject Of the nelectlon and retention of ex? perts In municipal work. "There nrc certain Internal dis? eases connected with our municipal government In America.'' he suld. "which act on the very circulation of our ordinary municipal life very much as hostile germs work in the human blood." Spinning the simile further, he asserted that Just as In medicine the introduction of the antitoxin into the human system produces something In tho blood which strengthens the good and wholesome germs so that they car. better resist the insirious attacks of the hostile microbes, so In ? : I pa] affairs tho Introduction of a similar agency?dyjl service reform ?will strengthen' the* municipal ad? ministration to resist the municipal ills to which It Is heir. Mr. Dana advocated a merit system wjilch would insure e>perlenced and tr d men at the head of important trustr, nnd whose tenure of office would be based solely upon merft and titnesn.

C. Barley until January 1!3 next, liooff rcnowed his bail 'bond in the sum of 510.000 for bis appearance 'at that time. The principal ground for tho post? ponement was in tho form of an uttl davlt filed with the court by liooff set. ting forth that the financial report on the affairs ofthc concern has not yot ; been completed by the expert ao-< countants who are going over the af fair a of the institution.

AMENDMENT NOT [APPROVED BY TAH Will Not Agree to Change oi Sherman Law Unless Federal Incorporation Kails. Washington, November 14.?President Taft Is not inclined to approve any amendment to the Sherman antitrust law unless It becomes apparent that j Congress will not pass a Federal In- I corporation act! The President Indl- ' catcd this to-day. Mr. Taft la a*nxlous to have sonia i legislation to clear up the situation ' for business men so they may realize exactly where they stand, hut he ma le it plain that he preferred lo see the changes: in the regulation of com- ] merce accompanied through Federal churters which could provide tor cor- , portions certain denned limitations. ; He let It be known that should that*] prove impossible lie would indorse 1 amendments to the Sherman law, ! pointing out specifically what this : may not do. I It Is the President's idea that if j the Sherman law be amended It should I define specifically what constitutes of . tenses against It. Crushing of com? petition, combination to ruin com? petitors or to raise prices or other acts of the kind should be specifically i named, in his opinion, j President Taft also believes that j tho amendments, if made, should lie i framed so as to mnke It unnecessary j for the government to prove that a : combination which has come to oper I ate In restraint of trade, originally j was intended for that purpose, us Is now the case. fn the Standard Oil suit the Depart? ment of .Justice had to begin with th? j I company's record more than thirty j years ago and work down to date to [ prove that Che combinations wore in I tended to crush competition. ; There would he considerable risk in any attempt to amend the Sherman law, the President has been told, and it is believed he shares that view. He has made it plain, however, that ito will not sympathize with any attempt to emasculate the Sherman law, and he again to-day expressed the senti? ment which ho embodied In his Pitts? burgh speech?that he had no sym? pathy with the statement that busi? ness men did not know when they were doing wrotig. After the Cabinet meeting to-day tho President indicated that recom? mendations for trust legislation In his message, to Congress would be along I theae lines. No bill will be prepared, the President merely recommending the legislation. MEMORIAL SERVICE [ Priests to Take Part In Paying Tribute to Lamented lllsbop.
