From all parts of the country, municipal experts an-d men in search of the municipal ideal have travelled to this now noted city, studying' its municip- al methods. Among the most recent of these pilgrims was President Efiot, oi Harvard University. Dr. Eliot, as a result of his investigations, declar- ed that government by commission is productive of the highest efficiency in municipal affairs. He found four com missioners and a. mayor in Galveston., elected by th..- at large, and the business of the municipality divid- ed into four departments with the mayor as executive head, he being charged with the duty of seeing that all the city laws are enforced. The plan followed in the city is as fol- lows The 'commissioners at the first meeting election, by a ma- jority vote designate from among their ruerfabers one commissioner, to as commissioner of finance me, and under whose direc- placed the offices of city and collector, the city treas- urer fd th.i city auditor.
