Ark., under Ant of March 3. ihts. THE NEW CITY PLAN. Nor.v that we have the new form of city government ready to put into practical application in April, the one point should be emphasized titai this provides for the abandonment of old political methods from campaigning and that the men in authority hereaft er should ue u popular choice ONLY of the people at large. There will perhaps be many condl dates for mayor and commissioners It is proper there should be. Since the names of these are merely submit ted, and campaign methods of the past are eliminated, there will perhaps tj spring into public offering the ser t 'ices of men who heretofore have re trained from the solicitation of friends to take active part in city affairs. The people twill have a long list of individual- submitted for their choice. They may vole for one of the mayor alty candidates, and for their choice of tho four commissioners, voting for the four thev would prefer. The two can didates for mayoralty with Hie high est number of votes will come up for election In a later election, so tlio choice may again be made, and the eight commissioners with the highest vote will also be presented again so that the four highest may be the elect | of the people. t Is a practical adaptation of the ■'Condary primary in vogue in aria** of the southern states, and is a guar ntee that the elect will lie the choice of the voters In all instances. No mass meetings or party nominations f t re anticipated. Merely the submis sion of the names of good men; with the opportunity given the voters >to eliminate until they get the men a majority want in public office. GOVERNMENT “BONE DRY." The United Slates government hai. f,one the “bono dry" route. The steps tecently taken by congress mean noth ing more or less than within a short' time the nation will have prohibition of the sale of intoxj^'ing liquors Thero are some of tht states in whi'-h tly of liquor #111 be permitted ’"'If the* turn or the tide la so apparent that even the moat ardent In favor of spirituous liquors see the handwriting on tip wall. The luteat law by congress pro liibiting shipments into 'dry” states, 'is said to be the nm-t advanced step taken yet by congress, and that was taken by an overwhelming majorit.' Under that act the government will pot permit the interstate hit's to stand in the way of prohibition iu pro hibition states THE FOOD FAMINE The food famine and the car short ege arc things the government should act on with diligence aud with haste, To think of a ford famine in a land of plenty is an outrage of 'which the na tion should be welt ashamed. To think ft rf suffering in the frozen north be cause there is no coal, when there is vhmKf of coal to supply the needs if l^rnly it were delivered, is a sign there P is something radically wrong it tun K ibe llliit Ibole is n whole lot behin'I £ such conditions than mere neglect to ilia udle the commerce of the count rj The railroads are largely to ltlame, and the renpotiibUit.r should be fixed I ami punishment should be meted out If the railroads are not able to han dle business under their private own erships, they should be taken over b> the government.
