SHOWERS State Probers Have Trouble In Other Towns Sttte Examiners Talk White Visiting, Their Bosses In Columbus About Condi- tions In Various Cities. The state examiners of county and city offices and at tha records of boards of education visit other cities the as Hamilton and with varied experiences in the different Court Houses and city buildings. There are classifications of these experts or specialists, as professional Wen would fay. They oven have 'their institutions like teachers and reeretaries of the Y. SI. p. A. and Chamber of Commerce and others so as to'get the benefit of each others experience. arc experts in inspecting ciiy offices, others in like niannor County offices or. boards oi Education. One who visits City buildings would In ntter_d n conference of County .Examiners or of those confer will; bojird.-' nf education but the .Auditor oJ Stato and tha head of b'.x; Stale Bureau nf Inspection and Supervision of Pub- lic Offices, n-.cct nt different times with nil of them., These''examiners travel in couples BO as to work together in "checking." When a pair of examiners completes the work in many city building: or Court Houso, they make out their re- port arid submit the same to their Bureau at Columbus and get instruct- ions for the next place- Some of there" examiners arc thus 5n and out of Columbus almost every day and there they come in contact With the correspondents of 'news- papers throughout the. state. Mr. H. R. Mcngert, the .successor of'the Into James. W. Faulkner as Columbus correspondent of the Cincinnati En- and "who is now writing' let- ters that aretin every way worthy of his eminent predecessor, seems to have been interviewing some of ftate- examiners on their pilgrimages to (Columbus when they usuxlly tell Jhings that are not found in their official reports. Jlere is an extract from Mr .Mcn- gert's observation on ulmt is on with, city administrations in dif- ferent parts 'of the stnte. If one has confidential talks with the state examiners who go about trying to keep them straight, it Is the usual thing to hear that few cities are following the plans of the citieL in the southern'tip of the. state Nor do they take much stock in the wnils .of shortage of funds. "livery move on the checkerboard is _R move to funds, not to conserve Busy business' men are pronounced ready victims for thjs type of city official because-the bus- has had an attitude rif in- difference to rising costs him through the trend toward infla- (ion, interrupted, only b'y .the. bard years cf. 1021 e.nd 1022. The fnx- ncsfcd examiners say' retrenchment is a word as difficult to sny In city halls as repartions in Berfin. And likewise they think the business men fall as quickly for giddy municipal figures as the T. B. M. (tired busin- ess man) is reputed to fall for the pranks of toe lightly cos- tumed chorus girl. Real studies of munieipial finance, with an attitude toward hard conservatism, would be opening to the cyrs and restful to aggrieved taxpayers. But who'll brinif it about? the meantime, lawful or .un- lawful, cities resort to nil kinds of (ricks to splice out their funds. There have boon references to the practice of petting; money out of bootleggers under n scientific policy of extracting iill the illicit business will .stand with- out destroying it. Then there are lit- tle to pet pin money. Cincin- nati, for example, tried to get addit- ional funds from the waterworks sur- plus, but the Ohio Supreme Court threw it a hard fall. Dayton, its neighbor, has a craftier scheme. It charges to waterworks operations nil the costs thnt cnn be charged nnd thiu whip? the devil around 'the stump. For instance, the waterworks must pay a ivhare of tha'City Solic- itor's pay and of the pay of all other thua neatly transferring tho coin where it can be reached." It is well, known that they have a form of city government at Dayton, not the ordinary com- mission form but most extraordinary commission form, one that was con- ceived and grought forth by tho same master mind as thfi law for tho Miami .CONSERVANCY, which Is conceded to be the most arbitrary and binding law that ever got into the Ohio Statutes. The Miami Con- servancy District and the present form of a city sfovornment at Day- ton wore established in .the same your, following the great flood of 1013. The commissioners and other City officials at Dayton, under, their present most extraordinary charter, are and have been inclined to feel that they have a sort o.f absolute "home rule" that is not subject to the GENERAL CODE of the utate or the rules and regulations of the Bureau of Inspection and Sup. ervUion like' Clneinniti, Hamilton and other citiM that "bear ills they have rather than fly to others, that they know not of" by sticking to the old system of city government under the Municipal CODE of tha btate.
