DISCOVER NEW SEAL ROOKERY
Captain MrClellan Finds Herd of
Seal oa Island of
WASHINGTON," Aug. 19. Captain Shoe
maker of the revenue cutter eervlce has
received a report from Captain- Charles H.
MrClellan, commanding tho cutter Man
ning, recording the discovery of a hew fur
seal rookery In the Aleutian Islands. Man
ning went to the. .Aleutian Islands In ac
cordance with Instructions from Captain
Shoemaker, who had received Information
through the natives of the .existence of a
seal herd near the western end of the Ion.
chain of Islands. While "cruising among
tne islands early In July the executive offi
cer of Manning, Lieutenant Berthoff, went
ashore with a boat' crew on the Island of
Bouldyer. There he found a rookery ot
fur seal similar to those found on the
Prlblloff islands. , .; . . ,: .
Bouldyer Is between Bering sea and the
Taclflc ocean, fully 1.600 mile west of Ban
Francisco, but still within American Juris
diction. Lieutenants Berthoff approached
tne nera closely enough to observe that
none ot the seals had been branded ani
there was no algn that white men In search
or fur seal had ever been near the Island.
Manning will continue . searching to dis
cover if there are other rookeries In that
locality. The suggestion I made that
theae islands may be one of the rendezvous
of the fur seal during their absence from
the Prlblloff Islands. The discovery I con
sidered Important by the officials here lit

lution I. Rescinded.
Over the veto of the mayor the city
council last night by an unanimous vote
of the six members present re-enacted Its
resolution authorizing the city engineer
and Councilman Hascali and Zlraman to
attend the sixth annual convention of the
League of American Municipalities, to be
held at Grand Raplda, Mich., next week,
and allowing each of the officials named
the sum of $50 from the general fund to
pa the expenses of the trip.
When the roll was called the members
present were Councllraen Burkley, Has
call, Hoye, Lobeck, Trostler, Whltehoru
and Zlmman, and by vote Councilman
Burkley was called to the chair.
The mayor's veto message on the meas
ure referred to Was as follows:
I return herewith without my approval
uueumem rxo. inm, passed Dy your honor
able bodV at your lAflt rrvnlar nwatinv
This document is a resolution authorising
me irny riiginrcr ana Jounvllinen Hascali
and Zlmman to attend the sixth annua)
convention or the Lague of American
Municipalities, to be heM In flranH RiniH,
Mich., the present month, and allowing
miu wic aum ui lor necessary expenses,
to be paid from the general fund.
I veto this resolution because It provides
for the payment of this I15U out of the gen-
cm, mnu. i nave received Irom the cltv
comptroller a statement of the general
fund balance up to date, and taking the
fixed charges and the different Items set
aalde by vour hnnorahla hnriv tha unorai
fund is now overdrawn 16.896.61. Among
the Items set aside I find the following:
Two thousand dollars for the treasurer's
department. u.WO for the tax department,
12.000 for street signs, $250 for Funston
avenue, jis.uoo ror market house, making a
total of $21,260.
Your honorable bodv must rail a tin it
At the pace now set an overlap In the
general fund Is inevitable. Rhmilri von
rescind the resolution setting aside $15,000
iur a mantel nouse you would leave the
general fund In a condition to meet the
nei'cKMiry ana actual expenses that are
bound to accrue during the remainder of
thle year, aided by such back taxes as may
be hereafter collected. If not a large over
lap stares you In the face. Until some such
arrangement is made I shall be compelled
to veto every Item of expense to be paid
from the general fund.
Other Vetoes Sustained.
Several other resolutions adnnted hv tha
council at It last previous meeting wero
returned without the signature of the
mayor and In each case the veto waa am.
tained. The mayor's refusal to ntn tho
resolution appropriating $10 to reimburse
i. a. uarnes ror damages claimed, which
was one of this number, was upon the
ground that the resolution was defective
In falling to describe the nature ot the
aamage alleged to have been sustained
by Mr. Barnes and that It failed to state
the fund from which It wa proposed to
T7 ths zucscy. Auuilivi uf tuvae resolu
tion wa that appropriating $82.65 from
the general fund to reimburse Samuel
Relchenberg for an alleged overcharge,
and that the mayor objected to for the
reason that the nature of the claim was
not expllcity stated, and that tho general
fund had already been overdrawn. In his
communication he stated, however, that
he believed Mr. Relchenberg to" be entitled
to the money and that he would sign a
resolution in due form.
The resolution directing the tax commis
sioner to cancel upon the tax list for 1900
an item tf $192 assessed against the chap
ter dioces of Nebraska wa returned
simply for the reason that a mistake had
been made In the resolution. In the de
scription of the property. Following the
same policy with regard to the general
fund which characterized hi contemporary
action upon other resolutions the mayor
had refused to sign the document Instruct
ing the Board of Public Works to repair
Forty-sixth avenue from Center street
south to Castellar street, and his action
wa sustained by the council.
Toward the. close of the evening Council
man Whitehorn and a resolution which be
Introduced In the regular course of busi
ness gave rise to considerable good-natured
banter among the members.
Hasrall Makes a Joke.
The measure provided for three are
light to be placed on Military avenue
between the former termlnu of the street
railway line and the city limits. The lights
had been requested by the Country club
and Mr. Hascali said he would favor the
resolution because he had a Mud-sill club
In hi part of the city which would later
be glad to get a few light. Councilman
Lobeck added that be had a club of gar
dener, farmer and dairymen who would
alo want lights before long and he hoped
the other member would stand by him
when he asked for them.
