Is lloston ribnut to undertake 11 novel
experiment In 1tnmlelp.1t government'.
tiovernor Guild recommends an amend
ment to the charter embodying a novel
Idea, though Itlnvolves no radical changes
such as are familiar In academic dis
cussion or as are exemplilied In the sys
tems cstabbsneil fr Galveston, Des
Moines or Newport. The Governor, to
be sine, has Ideals beyond the purpose,
which thn present etnelgelic.v 111 tlie af
fairs or the city of Hoston prompts.
Hceognlitlii that the governmental meth
ods prnrtihed by Atneilcan municipali
ties generally are coildi limed by foreign
and domestic obervers, he urges upon
the great and general court an examina
tion of the whole, subject With a view to
eettrlii for the cities hi Massachusetts
an cxcmpln 1. v system, which shall furnish
a standard for the nation. Tills is a large
piojeot ft en for a commonwealth that
has already won credit for model legis
lation and the Initiation of novel meas
ures of public iisefulmss which are wide
The pto'ciliuc of the general couit In
tin lnntti r of the Governor's broad ie
coinmeiid.'itloii will be awaited with muc'.i
Interest Such iniiulry 1 onld baldly fall
to In of as large slRnltlcaniM as tlie n -
ei tit exhaiisthe study of the oiiestlon of
municipal ownership hy the civic fed' lo
tion; while the results would probably
be nf greater material eoiiseipience.
MianAhle the case of the city of Hoston
demands pellicular attention. Ilete Is a
desperate condition, exposed within tlie
past lew months, as well as 11 notoiioos j
of a common system under which "hou
oiable gentlemen with hlgn Ideals, eleit
ed as chiefs of municipal gnvei mn-tits.
Mm! their hands so hampered by legal
restraints that thev rail to accomplish
dcslied reforms." Doubting that the capi
tal of the comnionw ealth has Ueen mis
governed anv worse than many other
communities aie irpudlatlug the sugges
tion of sonic critics Hmt local self govern
ment should he dented to its citizens 11
a permanent policy, the Goveinoi oeks
un eineigency remedy for the unhapp.H,
conditions revealed in admitted evidence
of debt, extravagance and maladminis
tration. "Fxtiaoidlnarv conditions demand 1 x
traoi dinary treatment" thus th" message
paraphrases fitly Fawkcs, hl!i'lf an
Idealist, If wioiiKdieaded. With a full
understanding of the departuie fiom all
previous precedents, the Governor luges
that the mayor of Hoston, with the ap
proval of the finance commission, be
given authoiity to icorganlze all execu
tive dep.iilmcnts and to tlx the appio
priations for the new llsc.il year. The up
shot of this recommendation Is that the
government o'f the municipality shall be
tint In tin- hands) of the mayor and the
rinance commission Jointly for one year.
Tic commission, though created by the
Li gislatuie, Is composed of Huston eltl
7.1 ns. H has exposed the conditions to
lenicdy which Its aid is now to be Invok
ed, I. the I'gislaturs agiees. Hi fore (lie
election of Major llibbard tln-re was
some talk of turning oer the entlie mun
icipal ailmhd.str.itloii to the commission,
as a sort nf ri ccivershlp until the cor
poration could be set on Its fnl. Con
fidence In the new executive sugg. sts the
advantage, of a Joint administration. The
plan is a very curious one, but ns .1 bu
siness proposition it will be strongly In
dorsed. The Governor, looking beyond tho
Immediate emergency, further fools that
the experiment will not alone take the
governmnt o: the capital city out of
party politics, but will be "of the high
est value In formlrje a complete scheme,
a general uplift, not In Hoston merely,
but thioiighout the entire commonwealth,
of methods of Un al government."
