CITY REPORTS GO TO PRINTER
Ao Law to Compel Annual Publica
tion, Kayo Aaalataut City
Tliouth there Is no law requiring the
publication of annual report of the variousn
department of city government. City
Comptroller Lobcck has unlit to the printer
the copy for the official report for 1907,
which the grand jury In Its report said
should have been published long ago. It
will be out In a week's time. There haa
been no appropriation for the publication
of theae reports for three years until now
ami this has accounted for the delay In
the publication, said the comptroller. The
Vew publication will contain the reports
tor three years.
The publication will not contain the re
ports of all departments, as some failed to
Quintal) the. comptroller with them even
though he asked for them several times,
said the comptroller. What departments
refused to furnish reports for the annual
publication the comptroller at first de
clined to say for the reason, as lie ex
pressed It, "I don't want to knock any
one." Inquiry was then made of nearly
. every department head as to whether re
ports had been furnished the comptroller
and when the replies were shown that of
ficial, he said that but three departments
Lad neglected to furnish their reports.
These three, he said, are the departments
of health, water and fire and police com
mission. Assistant City Attorney Punn Is authority
for the statement that there Is no law com
pelling the publication of annual reports
containing the reports of the various de
partments of the municipal government.
