Mayor Hoctor's special Omaha attorney
fur getting hold of back taxes, presented
his bill of JJO) for payment by the city
last night to the honorable council. To
bo exact the bill amounted to WOS. It
was accompanied ty the Judgment iteerco
vt District Judge Ieslle. That part of
the Judgment which dealt with the pay
ment of the fee was specially lined off
by Attorney Urecn. The decree simply
paid that as far as tho hiring of the spe
cial attorney went Judge I-eslle would
not disturb the ruling of Judge Sears, who
overruled a motion of City Attorney Mur
phy to dismiss the suit brought by
Hoctor in tho'nnmo of the city. H did
i ot, however, state that Judgo Illc
had said that ho hud "grave doubts as
to whether or not the mayor and council
over had any right to begin the suit with
out tho authority of City Attorney Mur
phy, the regularly constituted law officer
of the city."
When the bill was presented yesterday
evening it was referred to the committee
of the whole. The city attorney has
signified his Indention to fight the pay
ment of the x bill even to the court of
Inst resort. In effect tho payment
ot tho present bill would open tho
fioor for the mayor and council to ap
point opeclal nttorneys and pay them
special fees every time th opinion ot
the city attorney was adverso to tho
wishes ot the mayor and council. City
