Has Proved Highly Successful The Initiative and Referendum and Recall is Admired by Majority of Cittsenship of Spokane Spokane, Wash., Oct. 2a?-Seven uHMiuiv experience witn uie commission form of government in Spokane, which is under the control of the people through the preferential election system, the initiative and referendum and the recall, has ptoved highly successful. Direct efficiency has replaced irresponsibility and incompetency, party boesism has been elimated, the laws are enforced, the tax-payers are obtaining 100 cents' worth of work for a dollar, minicipal improvement bonds command high premiums and the city's credit is gilt edge in the financial centers throughout the country. Charles M. Fassett, commissioner of public utilities, speaking for the commission, says the people, as a rule, are satisfied with the change and that it is doubtful if even those who were most active against the present charter would vote to return to the old system. There are some, of course, who honestly believe the old form is better, he added, but the chief opposition to the adoption of the charter and its continuance comes from those whose private selfish interests are being interefered with by the beneficial I change iD administration introduced T>y'the present government Enumerating the chief points ol advantage of the commission form of government over the party sys tern, Mr. Fassett says: "For the first time in its history the community is not disturbed by political wrangling at the city hall Our commissioners often do not agree on various measures, but differences are soon healed and there is harmony and good feeling be tween them. "Each commissioner has charge under the authority of the whole body, of his departments and the tax-payer knows to whom to applj for his needs. The result is thai business is dispatched in hours anc days, where it formerly requirec weeks and months. rtStreet and other improvement! are made for from 20 to 40 pei cent less than in recent years without reducing the city wage scale or decreasing our standard; of quality. The contractors ring ii broken and most of our work goe: to those who have done the besi work in the past For the firsi time in our history a contractoi has been fined for delaying public work. "Our tax levy will be the same a! last year, notwithstanding a deficii of about $90,000 left by the formei government ana ine settlement oi many claims and complications neglected for years. "The various departments are being managed with efficiency and common sense. The water department, which has been permitted tc run heavily in debt, has been placed upon a business footing; free water has been cut off, the number of meters has been doubled in seven months, wastes have been stopped and an adequate supply of water furnished for all purposes during the hot months, where every year heretofore there has been a famine in certain districts. "Our streets are well paved and kept clean and sewers are maintained; the health oi the city was never so good; public service corporations are encouraged and enforced, when necessary, to give good service; back franchise taxes are collected and the affairs of the city generally are conducted along modern business lines. "The preferential system of voting, the short ballot and the election of commissioners at large, who select one of their number as mayor, are other features which have strong arguments in their favor. Hereafter not more than three commissioners will be chosen at any election, giving the voter no excuse for ignorance of the men or their duties. We require a nonnartisan affidavit and restrict the use of money for election purposes to $250 for any candidate. "By our system of voting the results of the election express the will of the majority much more closely than could be obtained by caucus, convention and ward representation. Cn the whole, we be-lieve Spokane has the most advanced and characteristic commission charter yet adopted by any city ,n this or other countries.' ' !' Si . ????1?1 W.
