That is the opening statement of an
article in the Des Moines Iowa Tribune
of March 22. The article reads:
"The report of the city treasurer for
the first year under commission rule
shows the receipts were a little less
than 1 million dollars, giving the city
more than $102,000 more for its use
than it had under the old system. There
is a balance in the general fund of $20,-

system the year before a deficit of be

tween $50,000 and $73,000 was create.

have never held that it would put it into
the hearts of all men to deal honestly

and fraud to pass unchallenged,

history of the city been such a univer

Des Moines is now in the third month
of its second year of commission govern

of the city an economical, efficient and
altoghter wholly satisfactory form of
government has been the salvation of
the city, divided as it was in two sec
tions, Des Moines and East Des Moines.
