H 4 X ! The Commonwealth is most heartily in favor of the Commis sion Form of Government for the City of Greenwood, because of the fact that all of the progressive and growing cities throughout the country which have adopted it are highly pleased with its opera tion and delighted at the benefits derived from this popular form of government. a 4 * 4 4 4 4 4 We are gratified to know that the people will have an opportun ity to vote on this proposition at an election, ordered to be held on Monday, March Kith, which was requested by a petition of 201 qualified voters. The people of Greenwood want their taxes lowered and they want the expenses of running the city government reduced to the low est minimum, and the only way to accomplish this end is by the t adoption of the Commission form of government. With three Commissioners on nominal salaries, and a competent city manager—who shall be re sponsible to the Commission—the affairs of the city can and will be run on an economical and satisfac tory basis. The Commonwealth has no complaint to make against either of the present city officials. They are all clever and worthy gentle men. But "what is everybody's business is nobod> \s business," and we are in favoi of confining tlie. responsibility <>f lie city's af fairs to fewer men, and holding X I them to a strict account for same I—which can and \Cill be done un Ider the Commission form of gov ■* -I T 4 4 4 4 x « 4 'T 4 * * 4 À TT 4 * X ' A X *7 4 * L A ^ eminent Read (he communication of the X ..
