MAYOR'S CLERK
NOW GETS $175
SALARY INCREASED FROM THE
PENSION FUNDS
COUNCIL AGAINST THE PLAN
C. E. McKeag Allowed Twenty. Five
Dollars From Fire Pension Fund
and a Like Sum From Fund
for Disabled Policemen
The fact was brought to light yes
terday that on last Tuesday the police
pension commissioners had voted C. E.
WcKeag, the mayor's clerk, a salary of
$25 per month. According to schedule
the lire department pension commis
sioners yesterday handed McKeag an
other J25 per month from the fund
supposed to exist for the maintenance
of disabled firemen and their widows.
The reason ascribed in each case was
that McKeag was the regular clerk of
the two funds. This $50 per month is
in addition to his salary of $125 which
he receives from the city as i the
mayor's clerk.
The police and fire commissioners
are also the pension commissioners of
their various departments. In the part
the mayor's clerk has acted as clerk
of the mayor's commissions but Mayor
McAleer, desiring to change things to
the advantage of his clerk, succeeded
In getting the two commissions to al
low McKeag $50 a month in addition to
his salary of $125 on the ground that
he acted ati the clerk of the two com
missions mentioned. The question was
referred by the council to the finance
committee. That committee unanimous
ly decided against the request, and
averred that It was the business of
the mayor's clerk to attend to th»
duties imposed by the mayor's com
missions.
Finding that It was Impossible to get
the money from the council the method
of taking It from the pension funds
was adopted. The agreement was
made In executive session. In the pub
lic session of the police pension board
which followed the regular commis
sioners' meeting last Tuesday a resolu
tion wag passed declaring the tempor
ary officers who had been chosen
should be made the permanent ones.
Yesterday It developed that the entire
resolution had not been read la the
public session, but only the introduc
tion. In the latter part of the docu
ment the clerk was allowed a salary.
Yesterday In the meeting of the fire
reunion commissioners the entire reso
lution was read. The minutes In both
rases are perfectly clear on the sub-
J«ct. i

LOSES CLAIM TO
RICH BELL ESTATE
MRS. GOLDNER VANQUISHED
IN SUIT
WEALTH TO WIDOW AND SONS
Weeks Consumed In Trial of the Case.
Many Mining Men Come to the
Aid of Mrs. Nathaniel
Bell
After weeks of argument In Judge
Wilbur's division of the superior court
a decision was reached yesterday In the
case of Mrs. Ella Bell Goldner against
Mrs. Nathaniel Bell dt Los Angeles, and
through the decision all the claims of
Mrs. Goldner to a share in the fortune
left by Nathaniel Bell were declared
null.
The Goldner-Bell case has attracted
more local interest than any other pro
bate case for many years, and grew out
of the demand of Mrs. Goldner for a
legitimate child's portion of a $300,000
estate.
The history of the case is as follows:
Many years ago Nathaniel Bell, one of
the best known mining men in tho west
and a partner in the firm of Stephens
& Bell of Silver City, N. M., became
Infatuated with a Mexican woman
named Llbrada Valencia. From the
testimony In the case the Valencia wo
man had many suitors and Bell was
one of the favored.
When Bell died several months ago
his will was probated, and Mrs. Gold
ner of I,os Angeles immediately claimed
a share in the estate, alleging that she
was the legitimate child of Bell and the
Valencia woman. Scores of Bell's
former friends and mining companions
flocked to the aid of his widow In deny
ing the claim of Mrs. Goldner, and
prominent legal talent from all parts
of the state was employed by both par
ties.
In his opinion of the case Judge Wil
bur said; "According . to the evidence
in the case there is Insufficient proof
that Mrs. Goldner was the legitimate
child of Bell. Her witnesses failed to
prove that a marriage existed between
Dell and the Vahnvla woman, while
seyeral witnesses have testified that 1.1
brada Valencia lived with a number of
men during her life. I deny the claim
to the estate entered by Mrs.' Ooldner
and flnd that Mrs. Nathaniel Bell and
her two sons are the deceased sole and
legitimate heirs."
