INDIANAPOLIS. Jan. 1:9. ?cn.
George C. "Wood was to introduce in
the .senate Friday a Mil under which
cities of any size in Indiana may
chanf their form of government lo
:i commission, or commission man
;iK'(T form. The commission type
would conrrntr.it' the responsibility
for government in the hands of five
in'n drawn from the city's inhab
itants by direct vote of the people.
The commission manager form would
follow in some respects the plan now
in vou'i.ie in Dayton, O.
This is the hrst proposal of the kind
that an Indiana legislature ever has
hnd opportunity to pass on. The detail.-
of the hill were worked out by
I "ran!-: G. Dates, professor of i olitlcal
s'drn e at Indiana university". Umler
the commission manager plan the
commission would be selected largely
us in the other form, hut would nanift
ji it;. manager, who would appoint
nil oilicers. I'ractically all the ollieers,
however would bo under a civil ser
viee board. The reCH id provided
lridc for Uinlgvt.
Doth plans provide for a budget.
I'nder the commission plan the ad
ministration Is tlivided Into live de
Iartments as follows: Public safety,
!i nance, treasury- and utilities, public
work and health. The commissioner
of public safety would act as mayor,
who acts as olhcial head of the city
lut has no v to power. In addition
to supervising work of the depart
ment the city manager Is empowered
under the hill to recommend ordi
nances to the commission.
House Against Xeiotini.
The house of repreonT.itlvcs, led by
Rep. Rranaman, floor leader of the
democrats, who was supported, it was
understood, by all the republicans in
the house, this afternoon went on
record against nepotism in state of
fices and refused to accept the report
of tho committee which had sent the
r'leary anti-nepotism bill out with an
unfavorable report. The house not
only did not concur In the report of
Ihe committee hut by apparently an
verwhe:lmlng vive voce vote sent the
5dll to second reading and engross
znent. Many members of the house
expressed their indorsement of the
spirit of the bill and said their only
-bjection to it was that It now In
cludes only staff olllces in its provis
ions, "while it should extend down
through the counties and township of
ilces. It was apparent from the temper of
the house expressed during the argu
ment over tho Mil that the house, un
less a sudden change of heart takes
place, will pass a bill which will sweep
ihe state house from stem to stern
of the host of relatives of public of
fice, holders, who now infest the of
Jiees there. Whether the measure
will he murdered in the senate, of
t ouno in not apparent, but that the
house will create a fence which the
senate -will have a hard time evading
was evident from the expressions of
iipproval for the LIU, which were
Hap Oflico "Hogs."
Dep. Branaman In moving that tho
report of the committee on the bill be
not adopted, said:
"I am in full sympathy with the
spirit of this bill. We have seen in
public oHiees for years a disposition
to hog the whole thing. It seems that
(here is not an otlloe holder succeeds
in getting In o:';ee that does not im
mediately believe he lias to till up his
office with all the brothers, fathers,
t"athers-In-lav and brothers and sisters-in-law
that he can bind. This bill
is of the right sort. It simply strikes
at theso ottlce hogs. lie you demo
crat, republican or progressive, tho
one thing you have had to excuso
when you were successful In electing
a ticket to olJice- was this system of
hogging the whole thing with the
relatives of those elected. The only
thing that is the matter with this bifl
that I can see is that it doesn't go
far enough. I'm in favor of seeing it
go on down tho line and apply to
every county and township ottice in
Hep. Branuman was roundly ap
plauded for his remarks from both
sides of the house. Dep. Darrish. a
democrats, then arose and declared
that there has arisen In Indiana a
universal conviction that u public of
liee is a public trust.
"1 am against this loading of a
state oliiee or any other ottice with
inefficient and incompetent officials,
because they are uncles, or mints or
mother-in-laws of the head of the
department in whi-.li they are em
ployed." he said.
Against I aliriency.
He spoke against the system of
nepotism and said it had been ap
parent for a long time that the system
made againt all i ibciency or com
petency. Rep. Mason J. Nihlack then sup
ported the bill in a spteoh for which
lie received applau.-r from both sides
of the house.
"Gentlemen. 1 am heartily in favor
of the motion of the ntb men from
Jackson. ' he said. "This is a repub
lican bill, drafted by a republican
no mber of this ho;:.-', but I am for
it ar.d I do not beliew any member
of this house will be against it. be lie
democrat or repub'.i.n. When I
earn to this ses-Mon of the b gisla- i
ta:.- I came with the tirrn Intention
that I wai:td my vote cast on the
right side of everything. The right
side of this question is to vote for this
law. And I esteem it the duty of th
democrats on this side of the house
to vote in favor of this bill.
Call it Di-gu-t ing.
"Thf re is nothing so disgusting as
for any party, republican or demo
cratic, to come up here and have a
state house crowd, composed of rela
tives of the heads of departments,
here to dictate to this legislature or
any legislature; and there is nothing
so dhgustlng as a state house full of
relatives. This hill should pass and
the practice should be stopped."
Dep. .Strange of Marion then spoke
brielly, saying he heartily endorsed
bill, but that he believed it did not go
far enough. He said its provisions
against relatives being appointed to
oJIiees should go on Iown through the
'.counties and townships.
Itcp. Fulton of Wabash county,
then made his "maiden" speech be
fore the house, in support of
the hill. He said that for 50 "long
years my county has gone re
publican, but in the last few years it
has changed and a democratic admin
istration has begun to come in. Yet,
in Wabash county, while we are now
ill the offices, we have a sickening
sight, where one officer, who when he.
was elected first went outside his
family to get help, began to stock up
his office on relatives as soon as he
vras elected a second time."
Scut to Engrossment.
The house then voted to support
Floor Deader Dranaman's motion to
not adopt the report of the committee
on the bill and It was read a second
time and sent to engrossment.
This is the first one of the hills in
troduced by Hep. Cleary of Marion
county which has been allow
ed to "see the light of day" after it
reached the hands of a house commit
tee. The news that Hep. Branaman
wa.s to make a fight for the passage
of the bill and the wiping out of the
committee report was spread early
Thursday and there was quite a crowd
of state employes within the railings
when the bill came down on second
reading, with .he committee report
KAISER PRAISES HIS
BOYS FROM COLOGNE
LONDON, Jan. 29. The Copenha
gen correspondent of the Stur tele
graphed his paper that on Tuesday,
the kaiser reviewed the reserve infan
try of the Twenty-Eighth Khineland
regiment, the soldiers of which come
mainly from Cologne, and made the
following speech during the exercises
which took place near great headquar
ters in France:
"I ordered this regiment here to
receive my thanks for its fearless
bravery. When infantry is attacking
with the bayonet and driving the ene
my in front of them this is a fine deed,
but to endure heavy artillery fire for
months require especial courage and
endurance. You have proved that
your bravery has not suffered and I
am happy that the Cologne hoys have
thus justified the high military repu
tation the Hhine army corps enjoyed
in olden times. If old Goebcn had had
this experience it would hae been the
greatest joy to him. I expect you al
ways to continue to behave us you
have up to the present. I am confi
dent that the Cologne boys will do
their best to dash the enemy finally to
the ground, when our dear God has
helped us to victory as L believe and
hope He will. I expect you boys of
Cologne to march into your famous
old city with your heads, high so that
your girls can be proud of you. Fare
