BOOST FOR
COMMISSION
GOVERNMENT
. Continued From First. Page,
the city had been raised several fee» I
and while much money had been spent
there was not a breath of scandal at
tached to It, The commissioners were j
I
j
suhservient to the people and It was
possible lo hold them responsible for
the present debt.
Other cities working under the com
mission form of government referred
to were Houston. Texas, Austin, Dal
las, and the only crlticlam heard,
Mr. Woodruff said, was from those
who were prevented from working off
their schemes.
The commission form, the speaker
said, was not ideal by any means, but
it Is a marked Improvement over the
nid method In this reaped the speak
er dwelt on the present method of
shirting responsibility from one city
department to another while under j
the nrw form responsibility would i
rest on the five commissioners who I
would always he responsive to the
people. In other words the old man-i
ner of government scattered the eggs
In the Imskei Mr. Woodruff said, while
the commission form tends to hold
them together where 1aPy Pan bf!
watched. Of the many advantages
under the commission form of govern
ment, Mr. Woodruff said It tended to
a reduction In indebtness or In the
i tax rate, or a reduction of expendl
: lures, all tending to efficiency.
In the abolition of ward lines and
, tho election of the five commissiun
; ers from the city at large, Mr. Wood
I ruff claimed that all men elected
' would then be answerable to all the
I people which was a great advantage.
( In some Instances, tho old line polit
1 lefans become the best commlsslon
I ers as was the esse tn Des Moines.
Thc proposed act which was based
Jon th* Walsh act, of New Jersey, Mr
iWooduff said was permissive and
! not mandatory which he thought right
. as It meant home rule for the people
I and they could say whether they
i wanted It or not. After Mr. Wood
1 ruff had ceased speaking of the
j workings of the new method of gov
ernment he took up a number of
j questions which had been submitted
1 One of these read
, "Do you think that the building of
(political machlnea would lie possible
under the Commission form of gov
ernment?"
Replying. Mr. Woodruff said:
"Righteousness Is not attained
through the acts of legislators; if It
x^ere we would all be righteous hul
thc commissioners would he respon
sive to the will of tho people."
In reply to another question rela
tive to the workings of the Initiative
and Referendum, thc speaker said
these measures had never been abus
ed tu the commission governed cities,
l lir measures were regarded as a
safeguard.
Another question asked was "What
type of men are elected under the
comtnlcalon form?" and the answer
was, "Higher grade, always."
Numerous other questions were ask
ed and at the conclusion William P.
Kurtz, a member of the commission
thin drafted the charter which was
defeated at the election last June, ws»
asked to speak on the subject. Mr.
Kurtz declared that ho had talked un
til he was blue In the taco and that
u w ih time to atop talking and do
something
Chamber of Commerce should assist
In having this enabling act passed by
tin- Legislature. He said they expect
ed to Improve and go ahead, hul he
could not see how they could expect
it to move unless (hey gave It some
thing to move with.
Seteral other persons urged that
the Legislature he asked to pass the
hill enabling the city to pass a new
charter.
He declared that "the
Irving Warner made a motion that,
the Chamber of Commerce ne urged
to use I!» Influence with the Legis
The vote was
ture to pass Ute bill,
unanimous In fator of the motion.
Mr, Woodruff was entertained at a
luncheon given in the grill room of
the DuPont Hotel by a committee of
tin' Civic Association and Chamber of
Commerce prior to the meeting.

FIREMEN ONLY
FOR CITY SERVICE
Council Committee Takes This
View of Washington Trouble
and Company Gets Money
Members of City Council in com
nilttee meeting last night sustained
the contention of the Washington Fire
Company that It could use Its own
Judgment ae to whether its apparatus
should or should not be sent to tiros
outside the city.
Mayor Howell had directed that the
company# semi-annual appropriation
be held up because the company had
refused to send Its chemical appartua
to Rehobeth on last Saturday when
a« directed by the fire nhlef. Mayor
Howell brought the matter officially
to the attention of the fire committee
0 f Connell in a communication to that
pody last night. After considering the
question the committee concluded
ih a t the fire companies tn the WII
mlngton Department are restricted to
drp duty within the city limits and are
under contract with the city lo that
( ,(j Pct »|'b e Councllmen also felt that
waB B n)a tt Pr 0 f courtesy only that
companies respond to appeals for help
f rom outside the city and they need
not send their fire apparatus on auch
runa if they did not feel so Inclined,
The committee directed that the
check due the Washington Fire Com
pany be turned over to that organiza
tion. This was done today by Clerk
of Council McManus.
Mayor Howell aaid today that he
dl(I_not bear any III feeling toward the
Washington Fire Company but
thought the refusal of thc company
to send apparatus to a fire upon being
directed to by the chief of the depart
ment was In his opinion, sn Infraction
of the fire ordinances of the city and
should be brought to the attention of
the fire committee of Council. He said
It was up to that body to dispose of
Ih* matter and the conclusion It
reached was satisfactory tn him.
Second Assistant Fire Chief Wil
liam J. Rayley whom a morning n*> s
paper states ordered the Washington
Fire Company to send Its chemical
apparatus to Hehohoth wishes to makr
a denial. Chief Ainscow ordered the
companies to send apparatus to the
Hehohoth fire and Mr. Halley says ho
had nothing whatever to do with the
matter.
