Commissioner McMlllen Had to Give
It Up, ,
Thero was an exciting time at the
office Of the Gi(y Commissioners' yes
Tho Commissioners were in session
as a City Board of olcctlons, and thero
wcro a number of citizens in the office.
City Commissioner McMlllen an
nounced that he wanted all tho citizens
to leave the loom as bo had something
ho wanted to say to tho Board In pri
vate. All picscnt but Col. Sawyer retired.
Mr. McMlllen repeated his statement
that he had something to tell the
I.card, and ho hoped that everybody
would get out. Thereupon he stared
at Col. Sawyer in a manner Indicating
that he thought It would bo necessary
to have a brick house fall upon him
bufore he would take the hint.
After he had waited a few moments,
Mr. McMlllen advanced to tho Colonel,
took him by tho arm, and tried to re
movo him from the room by force.
Mr. Sawyer resisted and asked:
"Doos what you have to say pertain
to jour work as City, omnilssloner?"
"Well," was tho reply, "I am a res
ident of Akron; I. pay taxes to suppoit
Akron's government and tbo City Com
missioner system," and I' don't believe
any City Commissioner should have
anything to say pertaining to public
business that a taxpayer has not a
right to hear. I think l',l stay."
This rejoinder was a surprise to Mr.
McMlllen, nnd again ho. attempted to
evict Mr. Sawyer by force
At this juncture, Commissioner Mc
Garry intoiforod by telljng Mr. Saw
yer to remain and he indicated that If
tho Colonel needed any help It would

McMlllen decided that he would make

"Tho Republican CQunty Commis
