Governor Ktcar docs not approvo of
tho easy policy adopted by the legis
lature of making tho taxpayers pay
twlco for services only onco rendered,
and he this morning vetoed tho En
abling Act which provided that both
the Supervisorial appointees to tho
toad department who did work, unci
the Major's appointee, who did not
work, should receive full pay for tlio

the Major's gang who hung about

with their feet on tho tnblo should

took u chance on being abto to dis
place tho workors who wcro In pos
session of the office.
In his veto messago tho Clovernor
expresses tho opinion, which, as he
was formerly Chief Justlco, may bo
taken as a Judicial opinion, thnt tho
Supervisors' appointees nro tho ones
who nro entitled to tho pay, whether
their appointment was legal or not,
because they did tho actual work.
Tho veto message was read In both
tho llotiso and tho Scnnte, and both
bodies, seeing a light nhc.id, postpon
ed action on the messago until next
So far as the Houro Is concerned,
howovcr, tho action of that body Is
probably already settled upon, for Im
mediately after adjournment Speaker
Uolstcln called a meeting of hlsYcab

text of tho Governor mchsngc is as
"To the legislature:
"I herewith return llouso Hill Nuni
her 98 entitled 'An Act Authorizing
tho Payment of Certain Persons Em
ployed by tho City and County of

object of the bill appears to be to
authorize tlio payment of wages and
salaries to all such persons whether
they performed the services or not.
"While I should like to approve
this bill for some reasons, I find that
I cannot do so conrclcntlously. Tho
