The New York -Evening Post's Des cipal affairs have been administered Moines correspondent in a letter to his paper shows the effect of placing the affairs of the'.city in the hands of an elected Board of Control. A surplus instead of deficit, infinitely better managed departments., a bet- ter governed city in every way, abo- lition of patronage and elimination of graft are among the pleasing re- sults of the practical experience of Des Moines, when nearing the end .its' first two years of the new re- gime. The correspondent writes: The capital of Iowa' is at present conducting a most interesting ex- periment in local self-government. under a new charter and results indicate that it is a vast, improve- ment over the old system of ineffic- iency and "graft."

Those savings, seemingly" small in themselves, amount to thou- sands of dollars in a, year's building. 'The city has been able to get closer prices and the advantage of a liberal discount since it began to. pay cash for what it buys. Thus far no ordinances have been or protested under the pro- of the initiative and referen- dum, nor have any of the commis- sioners been recalled. And in all pro bability it will seldom be necessary for the people to put these features' into actual operation.

On the other hand, tliis large control of the people tends to make the .work of the governing board in a larger sure responsive to public opinion. All in all, the government is more demo- cratic; it unites the people and their representatives. COAL MAN IN TROUBLt Toronto, Sept. C.
