This pamphlet contains abstracts of papers by experts in every department of municipal activity and reflects the progress that has been made in the various branches of municipal government, together with suggestions for improvements along these lines. Among the subjects covered are public utilities, charters, accountings, city planting, control of milk-supplies, parks and play-grounds, contagion and school inspection, pure water, sewage and garbage disposal, the work and cost of health departments, etc. As stated by the chairman, municipal advancement forms one of the most important phases of latter-day progress, and such conferences, emphasizing particularly the health and public welfare side of municipal governments, will no doubt become a feature of future municipal governmental and sociologic work.
