The Mayor Runs Amuck.
Like two bulls in a china shop ,
: mayor and a city attorney ran amuc
. at the city council Monday evenini
. and in a short space of time had ha
> established new rules of leglslatlv
. procedure , had done their utmost f
i annihilate a proposed now Industry I
t Norfolk , and had all but foisted
. bonded indebtedness upon the city fc
f an Institution that Is neither needc
. nor practical. Tne bulldozing tactlt
3 of the mayor and city attorney t
r which they succeeded In browbeatln
i. ' the council Into action that the mer
i' ' bers did not Intend , was the coarsoi
f ! work of the kind ever pulled off In tl
city , and they carried their points in
\f \ manner that outrlvallcd Cannon ni
[ . would put to shame Tom Reed in h
t balmiest days.
s j Throwing to the four winds i
a' ' heaven all accepted versions of parll
r mentary laws , the mayor , aided ar
- . J abetted by the city attorney or moi
il correctly speaking , the city attornc
II followed and uphold by the mayor-
stood the council off and dtifoutod the
wishes of that body.
The claws began to show when an
ordinance ) , which had been carefully
prepared In advance by the city altor-
ney. was brought before the council
condemning the pioposed new plant
of the Norfolk Oil and Chemical
works , a concern that haw but recently
located here In opposition to the Stun-
daitl Oil company , and an enterprise
Hint common business decency would
Ray should be encouraged by the city.
The ordinance was read ami a motion
was made to suspend the rules and
pass It on Its second reading. This
motion lacked enough votes to sus
pend the rules , but the mayor announc
ed that It had carried just the same ,
and at the same time gave out the In
formation that while he hud anything
to say no factory of that kind should
be put up Inside the city limits. So
while the Commercial club and cltl-
/ens generally are urging people to
come here with new industries , the
mayor proposes to defeat the work of
enterprising citizens unless their plan
meets with his approval.
But It required the consideration of
the municipal electric light proposi
tion to show what atiocltlcs may b < >
committed in a supposedly civilized
overnment. The sight of the mayor
mid the city attorney with their heads
together at the head of the table defy
ing the clly council was a gifted and
genteel holdup compared to which the
lecent work of bandits on the Union
Pacific was the crudest kljid of ruf
fianism. A petition and remonstrance
were before the council , one asking
that a special election lie called to
vote bonds in the amount of $55,000 to
construct a municipal lighting plant ,
and the other protesting against such
action. A committee was appointed to
see If the petition contained the names
of fifty freeholders. This committee
returned and reported that the peti
tion contained the names of 151 free
Play Neat Trick.
A motion was then made to place
the petition and remonstrance on flic.
The mayor seemed to be In consider
able hurry to put this motion , and
when Councilman Blakemnn asked if
the motion was not open for discus
sion , the mayor gave the impression
that the motion was simply intended
lo accept the report of the committee
and get the papers on file. This look
ed innocent enough , and every man on
the council votcel for It , not a council
man nor a man In the largo audience
considering that it was other than a
move to relieve the committee and get
the question formally beftue the coun
The matter was then discussed by
the council , and upon invitation of the
Mayor , C. E. liurnham , acting as
apokesman for protesting property
owners gave clear , concise leasons
why it was objectionable to call such
an election at this time , when the
taxes are as high as it would seem
that they should be , and when the city
Is engaged In other enterprises that
are more important for the growth of
the community than could be an elec
tric light plant. After considerable
discussion , a motion was made that
the petition be not granted and that
no special election be called.
The muyoi announced that the mo
tion was out of order , that the petition
had been placed on file and could not
be considered further at that meeting.
The mayor asked the city attorney to
lonfirm this ruling , and ho did. Then
Councilman Kauffman , In a voice that
showed thai lie was nol pleased with
the snap judgment , moved that the
former action be reconsidered. This
motion the mayor declare-d out of or
der , and his ruling was again confirm
ed by the attorney , and the mayor very
flatly refused to put the motion to a
vote. In the nitxup which followed ,
the reins of government passed into
the hands of the city attorney and he
dictatorial ! } ' told the council that the
petition hud now got in such shape
that it could not further be considered
nt this meeting , in which of course he
violated all heretofore accepted legis
lative rules governing reconsideration
of a question , and he further told the
council that as long as the petition
contained the names of fifty freehold
ers the election must be called and
that the remonstrance of other free
holders could not be considered. It is
the duty of the council , according to
Ihe attorney , to involve the city In the
expense of a special election whether
the council deemed It a wise thing to
do or not.
Having allowed the attorney to "lay
down the law" to the council , the may
or echoed amen to the profound wis
dom of the learned legal gentleman ,
and still refused to call the roll on the
motion before the house.
Who's Roberts , Anyway ?
On order of the president of the
council , which was really an appeal
from the ruling of the mayor , the role
was called , but owing to the confusion
that the council had been thrown into
by the attorney , it lacked sufficient
votes to reconsider.
Roberts' Rules of Order , section 27 ,
page 72 , gives the following law ol
reconsideration : "It is In order al
any time , even when another membei
has the floor , or while the assembly IE
voting on the motion to adjourn , dur
Ing the day on which the motion has
been acted upon , or the next succeed
ing day , to move to 'Reconsider the
vote , ' and have such motion 'enteret
r : on the record , ' but it cannot bo consld
1. ered while another question Is before
3 the assembly. It must bo made , ox
r ccptlng when the vole is by ballot , bj
a member who voted with the prevail
ing side. "
t But who is Roberts , anyway'
Hasn't Norfolk a Friday and a Barn
x I hart to make now rules when olt
1' ' rules do not conform to their desire te
3 ] have things their own way ?
The arduous duty of voting the cltj
f council as ho wants to , is conceded ai
, . worth the salary that the city attornej
1 gets for It. But why is It necessary tt
a' ' maintain the expense of n council , se
( ' long as the city attorney dictates whai
- they shall do and how they shall vote'
