Mayor Tom Hoctor will not be balked In
his Intention of using the back taxes to
fill up depleted funds as lontr as he can
get the council to pais resolutions appro
priating money wherewith to pay special
counsel for doing what the city attorney
and the city tteasurer say la not the law.
Last night Hoctor had the council ap
propriate $200 to pay a special attorney
for fighting to have the back taxes
thrown Into the hands of the mayor and
council to be put Into depleted funds as
they see fit City Treasurer Martin,
holding that tho mayor's course was il
legal, refused to pro rate the back taxes
Into the empty funds and his stand was
approved b' tho city attorney's office,
which has long fought to build up the In.
tercst and sinking fund Instead of spend
Ing money to build up political machines.
Assistant City Attorney S. L.. Winters,
who was present at tho meeting of the
city council last night when the resolu
tion appropriating the $200 waa passed,
said that tho mayor and council would
be enjoined from spending the city's
money. "If the mayor wants to test thr
case let him pay for It out of his own
pocket," said Winters.
Frank Johnson, who has operated n
news stand at Twenty-fourth and N
streets for many years, was granted per
mission to hold the same place Indefi

the council In unanimous agreement. A

Speak to Club
Mayor Dahlman and Commissioners j
Kugel and Hummel spoke at a meeting
of the Kenwood-Fairfax Improvement
club at Fortieth nnd Pratt streets ,lant
night. The questions of the gas fran
chise, the charter and street car exten
sions were discussed by tho commission
ers and members ot tho club.
Commissioner Kugel spoko In favor of
th-; gas franchise and the charter and In
addition cxplalnod the conditions In his
department that prevented him from
making grade Improvements, etc., In tho
vicinity of Kenwood addition. The addi
tion Is badly In need of grading, side
walks and paving, but Mr. Kugel showed
the club that such Improvements were
practically Impossible under present dis
tribution of city funds.
Commissioner Hummel said he hoped
ths proposed charter would meet the ap
proval of the public because his depart
ment would recolve $30,000 more In ap
propriations than It receives under the
present regime. "And," said Mr. Hum
mel, "If the charter is passed I can as
sure all property owners that I will spend
the additional fund as judiciously as I
am endeavoring to spend the appropria
tions I receive at present. Each part of
the city will receive an equal and Impar
tial share of the money."
Mayor Dahlman devoted most of his
remarks to the gas franchise, declaring
tht It would benefit the rank and file
of the people and not certain would-bo
politicians who are fighting the ordi
nance, fairly and unfairly.
Tho mayor also advised the club not to
advocate seven street car fares for a
quarter, but to work for extensions
which they need far more than cheaper
