How well he succeeds is vividly shown, but Xemesis at last overtakes the oppressor, niuj a fitting lo one of the most beautiful ifc stories ever projected on tlie I will refer now. to the origin and gro'wth of the commission form of government, as It ig called. It was discovered accidentally, in very much the same way as the law of gravita lion. You have no doubt, most of you heard the story of Sir Isaac Newton and the appie. The apple struck him on the head, and from that simple incident ho finally came to his conclusions on the law of gravitation and gave them to the world. And so vith .this commission form of govern- ment. Down In Texas they had a eries of very serious mishaps. What vith hurricanes earthquakes the own was practically wiped oul and chaos was In their midst, three nen 'were commissioned to run the own. The temporary system worked ut so well that the citizens said: Why, this is the only plan, the Com- ilssion plan. We wcn't go back to ie old plan any and so they etained their commissioners and start 1 the commission form of govern- ent. But they hadn't then the refer- endum and recall and all the other latest.improvements.

St. John, N. commission form of government', the only city in Canada so operatln; at Ihe present time. The people of Van. couver have voted in favor of it, and it will bo adopted in. that city on the that it has spread in, we have the city of I B.. operating under the first of January next year. Now I wish to call attention here to a few of the points in the St.. John charter, because it is really celle-nt charier. It Is based DeSiMoines plan, lint it is operating in Canada, and for that reason is of interest to us. W0 will take the lirst I clause: Tile -whole civic government of tho city of St. John, and the ad- ministration of the liscal, prt dential and municipal affairs of the city, shall continue to -be nud shall be vc.iied in the common council of the cliy of St. John, which shall be composed of the mayor of the city oC St. John and four aldermen, each of whom shall be a commissioned as provided in tho fourteenth section of this act and who shall be elected as here- inafter provided. In this act the expression "commissioner" shall be equivalent to and shall include "aldermen" unless the context otherwise requires. I may say chcy have adopted the ystcm of preliminary election. I ley have more than two candidates the flolil, Ihey take the two moi ho have the highest vote, and these vo men run in the final election. That is been improved upon by means ol tration of public affairs, the com- mon council shall organize the following conimissionershipa: 1. "Finance and public affairs. 2. Public safety, including fire, police, lights, market and public buildings. 3. Public works, including the streets, highways, squares, parks, playgrounds and public recrea- tion grounds. 4. Water and sewerage. 0. Harbors and ferries, and public lands. The mayor shall always be the commissioner of finance and pub- lic affairs; and the council shall the first regular meeting after every final election, select the commissioner to have charge of each of the other departments, hut, such selection may be chang- ed whenever it shall appear that the public service will be bene- fltteil thereby. Each commission- er shall -be responsible to UIL council for the efficient adminis- tration of the services entrusted to his department. such ordinance or bylaw shall be filed in the offlce of the common clerk, such ordinance or bylaw shall be suspended from going In- to operation, and It sha.ll be the duty of the common council to re- consider the same, and if it is not entirely repealed the common council shall submit it to the duly qualified voters of the city, (and of course the majority would decide j the question.) Those, gentlemen, are the salient features in tha charter of the city of St. John, and I believe it is a practical charter, based on th I.erienca other cities under t commission form of government. With regard to results, I cou quote you hundreds aud hundreds examples of the benefits that bav accrued from the Institution of 01 or other of the forms of commissio government but I 'will take the pri liege of reading some of tlie resul from this well-known book upon th question.

"If you believe in the. rtifc of the people, In the making of laws by the people, for the people, the matter Is entirely In your own hands. If you believe tlie people should control the reins of government, then gu out and take hold of them. As one eminent poet has truly said: "If fifty men do all the work, and glvo the price to five. And let those five make all the rules. You say those fifty men were fools Unfit to be alive. "Ami if you heard complaining from fifty brawny men, Blaming the five for graft and greed, injustice, cruelty indeed, What would you call them 'then 'Not. by their own superior force do five on fifty live, 3ul by election and assent, and priv- ilege of government, Powers which the fifty give. If fifty men are really fools, and five have all the brains, 'lien five men rule, as now we find. But if the fifty have the mind, Why don't they take the reins?
