WASHINGTON LED OFF.

Washington, D. C., was the first city in the United States to be governed for any number of years by a commission, coming under that form of government by the terms of an act of Congress that became effective June 11, 1878. The application of this form of government to the Capital of the United States grew out of the relation of the National Government to this particular city, and the city of Washington was not considered as an example to other municipalities with reference to its form of government.

The great need of improvement in sanitary conditions of Memphis, Tenn., following a severe visitation of yellow fever in 1878, combined with the fact that at the time the elty had incurred an indebtedness equal to its authority for borrowing money, led the Legislature of Tennessee in 1879 to put an end to the existence of the city as a municipal corporation and to create in its stead a taxing district whose affairs were conducted by a small body of officers having practically the authority of the Commissioners in the cities under the new or commission form of government. After the recovery of the city from the difficulties which made this form of government necessary, Memphis was reincorporated as a city, with its earlier form of government, and its experience was not deemed such as to encourage the substitution of this form of government for that of Mayor and counell.

A destructive storm having overwhelmed Galveston, Tex., on September 1, 1900, and left the elty prostrate financially, as Memphis had been in 1878, Galveston was placed under a government by a commission in 1901. The experience of Galveston under this form of government was sich that in 1905 it was adopted by Houston, Tex. Two other cities, having 30,000 inhabitants, adopted it in 1907, two in 1908, eight in 1909, six in 1910, fifteen in 1911, nine in 1912, twenty-one in 1913, and three in 1914.

THE CITY MANAGER PLAN.

An act of the Ohio Legislature, approved May 6, 1913, provided for a form of municipal gov ernment to be known as the "City Manager plan," the council to consist of five members in cities of less than 10,000 inhabitants, of seven members in cities of from 10,000 to 25,000 inhabitants, and of nine members in cities having over 25,000 inhabitants, the council being elected in all cases for a term of four years. This council is to constitute a governing body with power to pass ordinances, adopt regulations, appoint a chief administrative officer to be known as the "City Manager," fix his salary, approve all appointments made by him (except as otherwise provided), and appoint a Civil Service Commission and all boards or commissions created by ordinances.

So far as information has been received by the Bureau of the Census, the only city of over 30,000 inhabitants organized under the "City Manager plan" is Dayton, Ohio. Some of the smaller cities of that State have adopted this plan, and some of the smaller cities of other States have adopted a plan somewhat similar, one or two having adopted it prior to the enactment of the given statute.
