Milwaukee, Wl*., Sept. 21 —The National
Municipal League held it* final meeting
of the annual convention to-(l*>. Charles
J, Bonaparte of Baltimore was the prln
cipal speaker of the forenoon session. Ills
paper was entitled "The KosentSal Ele

other things he said:
■ The one thin* Indispensable, the on*
thing without which good government of
any kind or degree Is impossible. Is good

thoroughly honorable and conscientious,
and also sufficiently Intelligent and suf
ficiently educated to understand and dis
charge their duties, you will have, what
ever the defects of your statutes or cus
toms, a good government. If your places
of public trust are tilled by Ignorant, In

Municipal Pol It leal Parties.
A paper on "Municipal Political Parties''
by Milo R. Maltbte of New York city, was
read by the secretary. He said In part:
•The adoption by the national parlies of
municipal programmes—tlu- announcement
of their position# upon municipal questions
—l*. I believe, the true position of the par
ly tn municipal politic*. Already the trend
Is In this direction. Party platforms make
more reference to local i|oe**k>n* than for
merly. Th. voter is tax to content to vole
the same ticket tn municipal a* tn national
elections. He Insists upon knowing what
the party * position Is upon local ques
"What Is wanted Is not so much the In
dependent party as ihe Independent man;
the man who has high Ideals and yet an
accurate estimate of how rapidly progress
can be made; the man who will abandon
any party the moment It ceases to repre
sent his Ideas; the man who applauds vir
tue, horieaty and efficiency wherever he
rtnrts them The larger the proportion of
such men, the more nearly perfect demo
cratic governments will grow; the smaller
the proportion the less will principles he
considered, Ihe more sluggish and Irre
sponsible wdll parties become and the
more frequently will they full to express
the popular will.”
