E\YOR JUSTIFIED IN RF.INVIIK HEALTH BOARD
Mayor Moore's action in removing Urn board oi health and
demanding the resignation of Health Officer Calhoun is fully
justified on political grounds.
Mayor Moore is the head of the city government. The MM*
I cess of his administration depends upon the harmony end ef
fectiveness with which tin- officials under htm work. If they
givt the mayor the full benefit of their co-operation and ******
their official acts in harmony with his, no embarrassing situa
tions arise in the administration of city affairs, tint if they act
arbitrarily, without due consideration of their chief, they dam
age the standing of the administration with the public sad de
tract front Its efficiency.
When officials under any executive take set ion which die
credits their chief or other members of the administration,
political ethics decrees that their resignation or removal should
promptly follow. This iv th. political practice from the presi
.lent .ml his cabinet down. It has been followed in *■*>• cases
of various cabinet officers, as well as lesser officials.
The board of health arbitrarily learned tht city jail with
out giving the mayor notice of their intention, They acted
after the mayor had taken action toward finding better quart
for city prisoners upon the suggestion of the board. Hal their
action been necessary to force the mayor to act, it might be
condoned on the grounds of public good, but following, as it
did, the efforts made by the mayor to provide better quarters,
it is arbitrary and inexcusable from the political standpoint,
tending, -i- it does, to discredit the administration of which the
health board and health officer art a part.
By its action the health board has placed itself above the
administration. There is BO course left for a self-respecting
executive in such a case but to remove the men whose actions
are a violation of good faith, ii nothing more.
The late members of the board of health and the late health
officer deny that there was any politics in their action regard
ing the jail, but they fail to explain why it was taken just at
this time, 'ten the political pot is beginning to boil sad a can
didate to defeat Mayor Moore for re-election is being sought I
with much more diligence than success It is admitted that the .
jail is in better condition now than it has been tor some years.
No such action was even contemplated under previous admin
istrations, when conditions were worse, lad it is beyond ques-
Ition that the agitation to condemn the jail was started by po
litical conspirators who sought to WscYcdit City Engineer
Thomson and Mayor Moore. Granting that the members of
the health board may have ha.l no political reasons for the
action themselves, the fact still remains that they were pounded
into the action which they took by the hue and cry of the pack
which is seeking to drag down City Engineer Thomson.
Being made the object of attack which was really directed at
tlftir chief, the proper course of the health board was to stand
by their chief and take such action as would accomplish th. de
aire I reform without serving the ends of the political conspir
ators. It was their weakness in giving way to the pressure
brought to bear on them that Mayor .Moore most bitterly con
The abandonment of the present jail is an act which the put.
lie in general applauds on humanitarian grounds, but this end
could have been accomplished just as quickly without an) arbi
trary action which places the administration in the position of
being forced to do hat it was already seeking to accomplish.
Considerate conduct on the part of the board would have ac
complished the same end with credit to the administration, in
stead of the appearance, at least, of discredit.
Therefore .Mayor Moore is fully justified in removing the
tward, and if any blame is to be meted out, it is coming to the
health board and health officer, whose duty it was to sec that
all public buildings are kept in sanitary condition. Their final
action in condemning the jail was an admission of their dere
liction of duty during the years dating back of Mayor Moore's
administration, when they allowed worse conditions to exist in
the jail without protest or action, and justifies heir removal on
that score as well as on political grounds.
