PROPER TREATMENT K
The first tiling to be done in the ' lK'a program Uas a tribute.
Evidently moved by the popular clamor
and fearful that Mayor Tralnor by his
veto of the measure would hold them up
to ridicule, the city council met last nlfthl
at 7 o'clock and rescinded the vote award
ing a J-'iO.OOO Issue of bonds to F. J. Coad,
Jr., at a prtmlum of 1 per cent. Ueorge
iloflumn. Introduced the resolution.
Mayor Tialnor was not present at the'
meeting and did not hear of It until he
'' called up by Assistant City Attor
ney Sam Winters a few minutes before
o'clock. The mayor said he would not
Issue m call for a special meeting and
would not attend the gathering. The
councllmen were called by City Clerk
Frank Good a little after 6 o'clock. The
ransactlon of this meeting took Just
about five minutes.
The Impetuous action of the council
was taken for two reasons Dnmilur
umor and the fear that a repub
lican mayor by his veto would publicly
stigmatize the action of last Monday
night. The law, It is understood, reuulrea
that a epeclal meeting of the council
shall be called at the instance of tho
muyor and three councllmen. Mayor
Tralnor did not know of the mcetlne. al
though ho was in his office part of yes
terday morning and all afternoon. No
one else had the rliht to Issue a rail
under the circumstances.
"There Is a question In my mind." said
the mayor last night, as to the legality
of the wholo proceeding. 1 shall Investi
gate it thoroughly."
Councilman August Miller, w ho last Mon
day night, voted against the bond sale, was
at tho meeting last nlht. Me nal.i- !
was not satisfied that the meeting was
properly called, but I attended Just to
keep In touch with what was going on."
v. J. Coad, Jr., to whom the contract
for the salo of the bonds was awarded
seemed In no way anxious to push the
matter. It was understood yesterday that
Mr. Coad was not anxious to have any
thing to do with the matter after he had
learned of the opposition nmnifer.i.H

A rumor about town Indicates that prop-
eity owners are mustering and that
something radical will be done without

storm may only be guessed at.
Head Hated to Kali,
Yesterday the heada V all the city de
partments received notice of the retrench,
ment policy to be pursued by the city
council. The notice asks that the council
be informed of the name of every man
on tho city payroll at its next meeting
The Idea Is to make the taxpayers
realize the economical policy of the ad
mlnstratlon by cutting, off the heads of
a few of the laboring men and clerks.
In the matter of clerks there can be no
curtailment as the city is being run. City
Clerk Frank Good says that his office
is swumped with work to such an extent
that he would require more help in Order
to Issue pay warrants every two weeks
as ordered by the council several times.
The council cannot cut the treasuiera
office because the clerks In that depart
ment are there ati the discretion of the
treasurer, according to the city charter.
The police und fire departments are slim
as they are and the only departments left
are the street department and the en
In the street department the council
may save a few dollars by discharging
some laborers. In the engineer's depart
ment there is a question whether re
trenchment will be followed. According
to tho report of the city engineer him
self, the cost of his del artmeut last year
equaled the total cost of the rest of the
executive departments of the ctty hall.
Engineer Roberts a few days ago an
nounced to the members of the council,
then sitting as a board of equalisation.
that he "thought he would keep his force
of engineers on through the winter." Mat
Peteison, who was present at the time,
demurred, but Roberts insisted that he
needed the engineers. ,
