WASHINGTON, D C, March 6 That President Taft will help himself to democratic doctrines and, in his message to congiess at the opening of the special session, April 4, advocate tariff revision and other reforms, is considered probable. In fact, his mes- sage may be the republican national platform of nest >ear This is but one of the probabilities .beijig discussed today. Another is that the -democrats may attempt the impeachment of Secretaiy of the In- terior Ballinger. It is known positively that the ad- visability of bringing impeachment proceedings is being seriously dis- cussed by the democratic leaders. The plans are being developed in secret and, It is stated, that an impeach- ment resolution is practically assured. The resolution will cite the charges under which the impeachment is brought and its adoption by the house will bring Secretarj Ballinger before the senate for trial. Under the constitutional provisions and -statute laws governing the im- peachment of anv government er cab- inet official the initiative is taken in the house, the house bungs the proceedings the prosecution of the trial is mandatory upon the senate In accoi dance with the plans so far arranged Secretary Ballinger first will be given a chance to resign If he maintains the attitude assumed with the very beginning of 'the so-called Ballmger-Pmchot the secretary will refuse to quit under fiie The trial, once started, will be one of the most sensational in the history the government.

This evidence Is such that it cannot very well be ignored. Council- men are being asked to go slowly and not pass the franchise jjver the may- or's veto until it is knowu positivelj what a municipal plant would do. According to the BelMontaine dis- patches, the three public utility plants of that city are all on a self- sustaining basis. The gas. water ana electric light plants all are making their own waj, so that no levies are made for the support of either one. The water works showed earnings of without taking into account the public service rendered, such as supplying 169 fire hjdrants, water for all the school buildings, city plants and fountains. Also out of the earn- ings more than a mile of new mains were laid and S4 000 turned into the sinking fund. The cost of pumping water was 31 per gallons. The gas works One and a half miles of new maim; and 188 new services were put in. The sum of was turned into the sinking fund.

In all but one of these special sessions, but ont case of help alleged to be needed was considered. An investigation may result.

There were six days on which toe infirmary directors did not meet. Four of them were Sundays, and another Washington's birthday, a legal holi- daj, when could not have met if thev wanted to. For some unexplained i eason, did not come together on February 23 For attending these meetings, each of the iutirmarj directors received 50 a day. and expenses to and fro. In explanation of the calling of so many meetings, it is claimed that some of the sessions were not really meetings, but represented the of the directors in looking up indigent cases. Why it took three of di- rectors to look up one little case, aid why the meetings were not bunched together, has not been explained. For thelrtservices to the county in January, the infirmary re- ceived nearly apiece, the large amounts being due somewBftt to the fact that the deadlock over the elec- tion of a superintendent occurred dar- ing that month. They hare filed claims for a little more than each for work during the month of Feb- ruary. On the ground that these claims were not properly itomited, and that it was not stated that they .were for perma- nent relief, Prosecuting Attorney Henry Hart Monday morning refined to approve them.
