the "Inducements" probably meant tb
granting of lands and shore rights to

Criticism By Grand Jury Works
After bavins: worked' ninny hours
overtime for years past, D. L. Conk
ling, sity treasurer, ia now conforming
strictly 't the law, which specifies that
city and county office shall be open
between tho hour of nine in the morn
ing aqd four in the afteraoon.
And it is al because of the report
recently made publie by the territorial
grand jury wherein It was said the city
treasurer should remain in his office
during business hours. So Conkling,
in future, proposes to live right up to
tee letter VI the law.
Believing that the door of the city
treasurer' office would be thrown open
to the publie as usual at eight-thirty
o 'cloak, a small sroiv of citizens ap
peared outside th.e, office at. that hour
yesterday morning, which incidentally
waa pay-day, but not until tha clock
had chimed the hour of nine were, they
able to gain admission. Possibly some
little inconvenience was caused, but no
one dared kick against the law.
It has been the custom of City Tress
urnr Conkling, for years past, to open
his office at eight-thirty o'clock in the
morning and remain open until four-
thirty and flv o'clock in th after
noon, when, the iuh of business war
ranted such overtime., Also night after
night Conkling ha returned to his 'of
fice and remained there working as late
as midnight. . Holidays, tap, have often
been Included as working day for him.
But np anor. The good times are
gillie forever, . City Treasurer Conk
ling believe in giving full service for
his salary, and this he will hereafter
