TWO NEW CITY COUNCILMEN BUT
MR. JONES IS NOT ONE OF THEM
VACANCIES FILLED BY ELECTION OF CASEV AND
CHRISTIAN, CREATING MUCH COMMENT
The new city council organized
last Friday night, or more correctly
speaking, the old c ty council re?
organized by the election of officers
and two new members, after a ses?
sion full of mild sensations that have
been the talk of the town ever since.
The surprise of tbe proceedings was
the elimination of Mr. VV. L Jones,
whom it was taken for granted would
surely be chosen to a seat in the
body. Councilman Jones, acting
president, called the meeting to or?
der, others present being Messrs.
Spencer, Vaiden and Wolfe.
To make the account of the pro
ceedings score easily understood by
those not present, it should be stated
that the Council held a caucus the
evening previous at which time the
tentative selection of two new mem?
bers and the officers for thc ensuing
year was made. This has been the
custom of past city counriis. the
object being to expedite matters and
to avoid any personalities in the
council chamber. As the council?
men assembled for the caucus, o:
during the afternoon. Mr. W. L.
Jones, who was duly nominated for
the council by the Democrats cl
.amsburg. told each member,
according to their statement, that
"under no circumstances" would he
serve as a councilman, and that he
should not be considered a candidate
for the office. Accordirg to the in
dividual members, they urged hin
cot to take this position but to ac
cept an election, as it was the pur
pose of the council to elect him
But Mr. Jones was immovable anc
discouraged any talk of his electioi
as contemplated by his constituent
and friends. It appears that Mr
Jones gave up the idea of lerviii
on the council, because he had be
come a candidate for city audito
and clerk, which pays a salary o
$200. In this particular he wa
given no encouragment. Mr. Savag
being a candidate for reelction.
Therefore, when the council cai
cussed they had no other alternativ
than to choose a new man for th
position that Mr. Jones was expec
ed to take on the new council. Ac
cording to members, thev seiecte
R. T. Casey from up towo and .
T. Christian from down town, i
order to distribute tho councilme
about as much as possible. M:
Wolfe was chosen as president l
succeed President Lane, who woul
resign at the meeting. F, R. Savagi
as clerk and auditor, and Dr D. .
King as health officer. This prc
1 gramme was finally ratified at tl
subsequent meeting on Friday nigh
but not until things became war
and the situation at times tense.
Coming back to the council mee
ing Friday night, the resignation i
Capt. Lane was read and the cou
eil expressed regrets at parting wi
an old and faithful official, who hi
served his etty to the best of b
ability for so many years. M
Wolfe then nominated Mr. Casi
snd he was unanimously elected
fill the vacancy.
At this juncture. Clerk Sava
read the formal resignation of K
H. D. Cole, and there were ma
expressions of regret when the sai
wss accepted. The clerk then re

lenee. Mr. Jones was present and
while he is no longer young, he has
a good command of the Er,.
language and knows how to express
his feelings in words that cut. The
members were loath to arouse him.
but they got afew'ittle stings before
this part of the cut and dried pro
grimme was finished.
