this nomination I desire to cull atten

office of county si rveyor, while being
largely of a "thank you" nature, the
remuneration being insufficient fer the
support of a family, have eminently
fitted me for the duties of the office to
which I aspire, and in case I should re

When the attempt was made after
the flood in 1900 to rebuild the city of
Galveston, Texas, it was found that
the old system of municipal rule com
posed of a mayor and a number of ward
aldermen, without responsibility on any
member of the governmant to perform
any specific duty, was woefully inade
quate for the exigencies of the occas-
sion. Those were days when things had
to be accomplished. Great deeds were
required and the obstaelo was the
city government, each district controll
ed by selfish interests to oppose every
ther district, and no authority on the
part of any one to do anything. So tbe
legislature was appealed to to abolish
the ward government and substitute a
commission to direct affairs during the
robuildine of the citv. The idea was
successful and met with popular ap
proval from the start. Other Texas
cities rapidly adopted the new system
Then followed De s Moines and Cedar
Rapids, low a ;Souix Falls, South Dakota;
Haverhill and Chelsea, Massachusetts;
and a half dozen cities in Kansas whose
number was augmented Tuesday by the
adoption of this form of government by
Kansas City. And it is a significant
fact that from Galveston all along the
line toHtaifsas City, (here yet remain
to be recorded the first failure or the
first expression of dissatisfaction with
the new system. It is a distinct step
in advance in city government.

The News -Herald predicts that
when the Conferees and the Presidsfct
get through with the tariff bill it will be
in such shape that all Republicans can
honestly and conscientiously give it
their support. We predict that there j
are scores of Republicans in the House
who will never vote to concur in tho
conference report unless it is a fulfill
ment of pre-election promises. We
have unlimited faith in republican repre
sentatives doing the right thing in the
end. The Republican party never has
failed to make good in a crisis. Taft
and the progressive wing of tho party
will win this fight yet. There arc a
great many more progressive Repub
licans in the House than there are in
