THE NEW BOARD'S PRIVILEGE
OUTGOING TRUSTEES CANNOT
ACT ON MONDAY.
New and Interesting Phase of
Mayor Hubbard's Latest
Coup D Etat,
According to an opinion filed yester
day by Corporation Counsel Hiram W.
Johnson with City Clerk Desmond, the
present City Board of Trustees cannot
act on Mayor Hubbard's nomination of
Henry Balsz as police partol driver to
succeed John Fitzgerald.
The Mayor recently declared that the
terms of both Balsz and Fitzgerald as
patrol drivers had expired, and he pro
ceeded to let them both out. He nomi
nated H. M. Butler to succeed Balsa
and W. P. Harnett to succeed Fitzger
Last week the Trustees confirmed
Butler, but postponed action in Har
nett's case. Then the Mayor last Mon
day withdraw the latter's name and
substituted that of Balsz as successor
to Fitzgerald, and again the Trustees
postponed action until next Monday.
Now comes Corporation Counsel with
a communication, in which he states
that the outgoing members of the
Board of Trustees will conclude their
official lives at midnight on Sunday,
and that it will be the province of the
incoming board to act on Balsz's nomi
nation. He says:
"M. J. Desmon, City Clerk—Dear Sir:
Through the telephone day before yes
terday you asked me for an opinion
as to whether or not the outgoing
Board of Trustees could act in the mat
ter of the confirmation of Mr. Balsz
Monday next at 6:45 p. m., to which
time on Monday last they adjourned.
"In reply, I have to say that, in my
opinion, the term of office of the out
going members of the board expires at
midnight Sunday night. After that
time I do not believe these outgoing
members can perform or participate in
any official act. I understand, also,
that the new Board of Trustees ex
pects to organize at 10 o'clock a. m.
"If this be so, certainly the old board
cannot perfom any office act at 6:45 p.
m. Monday evening and cannot at that
time act upon the appointment of Mr.
GALLINAR WAS "THAR."
The Washington Attorney Gave
Boiler Experts Some Points.
The water works plant in Washing
ton-across-the-river has been completed
for over two weeks, but until yester
day the engine with which it was in
tended to run the pump balked, and
no manner of coaxing could get it to
do its duty.
The San Francisco firm from which
the engine had been purchased has had
two alleged experts on the ground for
the past week, but regardless of their
efforts th* machine fluked and abso
lutely lefused to work. Something was
wrong with the exhaust, and when the
steam was turned on It gave a good
imitation of a militia company firing by

There is an attorney in Washington
name I Gallinar, and he was much in
evidence in the vicinity of the pump
ing p!ant engine yesterday morning.
Contrary to the usual course pursued !
by attorneys he was lavish with free j
advice and explained to the experts
from San Francisco just what was the
matter with the engine and just how
to lix it. The experts listened and
groaned and finally told Gallinar to go
ahead and fix the engine, if he knew
so much about it.
The Washington attorney was equal
to the occasion. He went about his
work as though he understood what
he was at, and intended to put his
theories in practice. He loosened a bolt
in one place, tightened one in another,
shifted the gearing, and then screwed :
up a few nuts, and finally threw away
the gasoline torch which had been used 1

Why Fred G. Hughes of Arizona is
Behind Prison Bars.
On Tuesday last Governor Budd is
sued a warrant, on the requisition of
the Governor of Arizona, for the re
turn to that Territory of Fred G.
Hughes, who is wanted by the Terri
torial authorities for the crime of em
bezzlement. Hughes was in prison at
Randsbuig, in the southern part of the
Hughes, the alleged embezzler, is well
advanced in years, and previous to his
late escapade is said to have borne an
enviable reputation in Arizona. He
was one of the most popular men in the
Territory, and might, it is said, have
had any political position within the
gift of the people for the asking.
The last Arizona Legislature passed
an Act creating the "Arizona Pi
oneers' Historical Society," which was
incorporated, with Hughes as Presi
dent. The Act also appropriated $3,
--000 of the Territory's funds for the
use of the society, the money being
made payable on the President's or
Hughes, it is alleged, drew down the
entire sum of money, and after apply
ing about |500 for the benefit of the
society became infatuated with a wo
man and took her, together with the
remaining $2,500, into Mexico. Ex
tradition papers were forwarded to the
latter country by the Arizona authori
ties, but before they could be honored
Hughes had recrossed the line into Cal
ifornia. He went to Randsburg, where
he was captured.

Constables Rich and Steen Recover
Most of the Goods Stolen
From Daly Bros.
It was stated yesterday, in connec
tion with the burglarizing of Daly
Bros.' store at Oak Park, that none
of the stolen goods had been recov
ered. It has since been learned that
nearly all of the goods had been re-
J turned to the owners.
I It appears that Constable William
' Rich and Deputy Constable John Steen
' were traveling along the road iead-
I ing to Guthrie Station, and when near
I the powder-houses they met two men
j pushing a heavily-loaded wheelbarrow.
On perceiving the officers the men
: dropped their burden, as well as their
; coats, and hid beneath some box cars.
As the officers came nearer the men
jumped over the fence and ran across
I the field with Rich and Steen in hot I
pursuit, but owing to the heavy fog!

and the officers had to abandon their j
The wheelbarrow contained five hams,
six sides of bacon, five fifty-pound sacks
of flour, and twenty-five pounds of su
gar, which the thieves had put into
an old pillowslip along with three dozen
boxes of sardines, various plugs of to
bacco and other articles. The officers
then procured a horse and wagon and
hauled their prize to Oak Park, where
they learned that Daly Bros.' store had
The wheelbarrow, which had been
stolen from a Mr. Allen several nights
ago, had since been remodeled, a new
bottom and front piece having been
put on. Its workmanship would de
note that it was done by some one
who is accustomed to handle tools.
One of the coats left behind is an old
brownish-colored overcoat, which had
been shortened into a squarercut coat.
The other is a well-worn square-cut
short coat of a bluish color.
The burglars evidently made two

The missing stuff includes a number of
cans of toffee, syrup, etc.
