? Differences of Opinion Over Con?
struction of Salary Clause
I in Charter.
MAYOR'S INCREASE HELD UP
If Not Acted On in December,
New Complications May
Difl erences of opinion have devel?
oped as to the proper contraction of
f the provisions of the new city charter
I In regard to flx'ng the pay of city
officials and employes not under the
Administrative Board. The dlscuss'ou
arises as a sequence to the remarks of
Mr. Puller In the committee on Orul
naiices. Charter and Ueform on Tues?
day night, in which he uharged a gSS>
<ral scramble on the part of certain
i?sser employes to get their pay raised
?efore the Administrative Board take* I
! .barge. At the same time, sitting in
secret session the Committee on Fi?
nance recommended to the Council ten
? or a dozen salary increase ordinances,
"chairman tirundy declining to make'
? public the names of those who win the I
? piuma For some reason not made
I public, the committee tabled the ord<-I
: nance increasing the salary of the)
iluyor. a maSJIer which it was bcl'evtd
' would have almost unanimous ap- j
proval. Several other papers are pend- |
-mg granting increases in pay. which!
i originated, as in the case ot the Mayor.
? :iot with the officials themselves, but
: w'th councilman who considered it a
wise policy to encourage progressive
? and active men. As these increases .
were not solicited by the incumbents ;
themselves, but were offered in tecog-j
nltion Of their services, they fhouid j
not be classed as "salary grabs "
What Charter States.
But the contention has now 3rlsen
whether after January 1 the Council
-an, without reference to the Admin
Ptrative Board, increase any salary
It was certainly the intention of the
ccmmit'.ee which drew the new plan
of government to give the new baaurd
large powers over the departments
- nder Its direct control, but over no
others. It was intended that the Ad- !
minlstraflve Board should fix the pay
of all errfleyes under its direction.
ar.d that the ?ay of such officers as the'
board elects, after once being t'.x-dj

To Ask far opinion.
It seems to be very clear from the
above section that the Administrative
Board wiU fix the pay of aSl employes
in all departments under it. and may
from time to time diminish or Increase
It?limited only by the general appro?
priation in the annual budget for pay

Council may. If It sees fit. delegate to
th* Administrative Board the power to

prie-y of so doing is referred to the

from the broader construction placed
on rhe slaaee yesterday by a number

without limitation that when the pay
of all d'T officers has once been fixed,
it shaJl not be Increased by the Cowl?

the Administrative Board might have

not under Its supervision, or it might
have to report on the advisability of
