In regard to the questiou as to
whether the Council has the right
to modify the fees of tbe Tax Col
lector during his term of office, I
am very clear lhat it has that right.
The charier doea not tlx his com
pensation, but leaves it to your
Judgment uud discretion. A muni
cipal corporation may, unless re
strained by charter, or unless the
employment is ill the nature of a
contract, reduce or otherwise regu
late the salaries ami fees of its offi
cers according to its views of expe
diency aud right. Although an
officer may be elected or appointed
for a fixed period, yet where he is
not bound,and cannot be compelled
t<< serve for the whole time, such
election or appointment cannot be
considered a contract to hire for a
stipulated term. Ordinances liv
ing salaries are not iv tbe nature of
contracts with officers. This ap
pears to be the view taken of the
law by Judge Dilleu in bis work ou
corpora' ions. [See Diilon on Mu
nicipal Corporations, Sec. 170], uud
is supported by numerous authori
ties. The charter, therefore, leav
