Republican councllmeu-elect and other
party leaders held a caucus Tuesday at
which the council appointments were de
cided upon and the policy of the republican
majority in the city council practically
Later In the day a second caucus of Ihe
couiicilmcn was held and the result of the
lirst one overturned. The slate us Dually
agreed upon Is as follows:
City Clerk W. F. Sapp.
Chlet of Fire Department Robert W.
Jones, captain No. 1 hook and bidder com
City Electrician James G. Bradley.
Street Supervisor George Rockwell.
Sidewalk Insector Jim Peterson.
Custodian of City Hall William Larson.
Poll Tax Collector D. J. Whitlaker.
Poundmaster Charles Burke.
W. F. Sapp, who headed the republican
ticket. Is to be compensated for his defeat
at the polls by receiving the appointment
of city clerk. No decision, however, was
reached as to the deputy city clerk. The
city clerk, theoretically, has the naming of
hla deputy, but It is no secret that the
councllmen have a good deal to say us to
tho appointment. Mr. Sapp, It Is under
stood, is anxious to retain E. R. Bowman,
the present deputy, but H. A. Balrd, D. J.
Whltaker and T. L. Hall are applicants fur
The first caucus favored John L. Temple
ton for chief of the fire department. Two
years ago Templeton had to step down and
out to make way for Charles M. Nicholson,
the democratic appointee, and many repub
licans now feel that it would only be fall
to Templeton to reinstate him.
The caucus decided on replacing City Elec
trician Atkins with a republican and It la
understood that ihe position will be offered
to Ed Carr, electrician for the motor com
pany, but it was not known yesterday
whether Mr. Carr would accept the place
or not. James G. Bradley, who held the
position for a numlwr of years, but was re
moved to make way for Mr. Alklns, Is an
applicant for the appointment.
Theodore Gull tar waa slated for street
commissioner, but he yesterday stated that
ho did not want the Job and would decline
the appointment, Joha Halle, formerly trus
tee tor Kane township, was to be rewarded
with the appointment of sidewalk Inspector,
while John Taylor was to be offered the
appointment of poundmaster.
William Larson. Janitor at the North
Eighth Street school, was the choice for
custodian of the city hall, the salary of
which is STiD per annum.
The appointment of the members of the
police force la one of the perquisites of the
mayor's office and It la understood that at
the caucus Tuesday night It wna decided
to respect the mayor's prerogative and not
Interfere with his appointments. The -chief
and members of the police force will be
named next Monday night by Maynf
Macrae, while the chief of the fire depart
ment and other appointees will be elected
by ballot by the eight members of the city
council, six of'whom are republicans.
