HOME RILE.
If the charter commission plan
of incorporation as a city is all
that its advocates claim for it the
plan is well worthy the consider
ation of the people of the city.
It is asserted by those who
contend for the adoption of a
charter that incorporation under
the general laws of the state will
make it impossible for the city
ever to secure home rule. Once
incorporated under the general
laws the city can never take ad
vantage of that provision of the
constitution which permits the
appointment of a charter' com
mission and the adoption and
subsequent amendment, if neces
sary, of a charter. This is the
contention of the advocates of a
charter, and the supreme court
evidently bears them out for it
has ruled directly upon a similar
state of affairs and has held plain
ly that cities once incorporated
under the general laws cannot
afterwards adopt a charter.
SINCE
out.
This is a strong point in the
argument for a charter. Bemidji
certainly does not wish to place
itself in a position where it can
not alter its form of government
to meet changing conditions.
It is true that the legislature
may always be appealed to, but
the legislature may not pass
special legislation and any ataround
tempt to amend the general laws
for the benefit of ont, will arouse
the hostility of nearly every other
city in the state incorporated un
der the general laws. Under
such conditions making a change
in the city government would be
almost impossible.
If incorporation under the gen
eral laws makes home rule im
possible Bemidji wants none of
it. The matter is worthy of the
careful consideration of every
citizen.
TAMMANY'S FAT YEARS.
The triumph of Tammany Hall
in New York city is much to be
regretted by every lover of good
government. Municipal reform
has received a serious setvback in
America by reason of the vote of
New York city on Tuesday.
Tammany stands simjjly for the
plunder of the people through
the government. Victorious at
the law it makes the law serve
its purpose to defeat all law but
that which it must use. It ex
ists solely to make money
through political power. Tues
day's election delivers the city of
New York to Tammany that
Tammany will fatten on it for the
next four years everybody
knows. New York city gets what
it wanted which is what it de
serves, but clean government in
our great cities must now make
way against this added handicap.

Northern Securities compary

The truth is that we have begun
to realize that it practically
makes little difference what the
outcome may be. A merger in

of free rural delivery. A move
ment less^popular would have
been badly backset by such a
handicap as the post office scan
ilals. But now that the people
have had a taste of rural delivery
they are determined that it shall
be the great feature of postal
progress of this quarter century.
