The Provo commercial elub held H
a special meeting last evening for H
the purposo of dlscuuing the Dei H
Moines plan of city government H
with a view to advising the Utah H
county members of the legislature H
how tho club stauds on the qtiea- H
tlon. The meeting was not well M
nttended owing to tbe short tlmi of M
notice, but onneldcrablo Interest wai M
manifested although most of the H
speakers regretted that thoy were H
Acre not better informed on the M
mihjcor, their Information bfting M
very general in its nature. H
Vice-President lUvercamp pre- M
sided mid rolled ou J. E, Frisby
to give n explanation of tbo Dm M
Moines plan which lie did. 'H
All the speakers favored It In J
principle and admitted 18 advant- l
nirwto lareo cities where there U M
Piiffic'ent business and revenue to H
justify Its adoption but some quw- H
loned whether H was so well H
ndnptefl to the conditions of smaller H
oltlwi nn normint of the greater ex- H
pensoof the new method ol city
covrrnment. H
Wm. E. Roylanoa was In favor H
of letting Salt Lake olty try the
mpthod'flrst. H
Myron O. Newell brought out
the question of Increnswl expenee M
and questioned the adaptability of 1
the Des Moines plan to small cltlw, vfl
ns did Epn Homer who was one o! H
the,JlMi prwont who spoke on
th i ouestlon. H
Mavmr Decker favored' It, and , ll
was favorable to the ImmetlWV "
odoptlon it the plan. So waa Dr. M
F. W. Taylor, President Poweleas , ,
of the city council, O. F. Johnson
II. F. Ilulsh and others. 'M
A motion by W. J. Startup to
tho effect that the commercial club H
favor tho Pea Moinea plan In the"
government of cities of tlie second M
olass carried with only one or two
diFsenting votes. Thin action will
be communicated to the Utah opiw
ty members of the legislature, M
briefly and generally ptated the H
Pen lolnfg plan of city govern-
ment will do away with the city 'H
council. In Its place will be elect- H
cd three or Ave commissioners, who H
with the mayor and the auditor, .H
will devote all their time to the .H
business ot tho city. They wll be H
elected under the primany election H
law mctliod which will to a great H
extent, eliminate party politics. Of 'H
course as these men will devote all M
their timo to the city's buslnecs, em- ,H
ploying nil city oflieers, etc.. they H
will receive a greater salary than
the compensation now paid to the ,
mayor und caiincllmcn, and the M
claim of those who favor the plan H
Is that the municipal interests will H
bo looked after so much better than I H
at present, that tho change will H
irovo advautsgeoua to the olty, as ,M
It has done In large cities, such us H
