WHERE MATTER GOES TO HANDS
OF DISTRICT ATTORNEY
PHILADELPHIA, July 17.—As a
resnlt of advices received from Elihu
Root, special counsel for Mayor Weav
er, it is probable that the mayor will
initiate criminal prosecution against
certain presons who are prominent in
municipal affairs. Mr. Root advises
the mayor that in the face of tbe re
fusal of the district attorney to take
the initiative in bringing further pros
eontions. the mayor should exercise
his right to go before a magistrate and
carry the prosecutions as far as the
law will permit him.
This opinion was sent to tbe mayor
today, and was tbe resnl ■of a confer
ence held in New York last Friday.
The purpose of tbe conference was
to decide whether the mayor should
take the initiative in further prosecu
tions, the distrct attorney having re
fused to do so.
The mayor requested the district
attorney that in drawing up charges
against oonncilmen, he should bring
charges of conspiracy with certain
other persons to defraud the city.
Caver, one of the counoilmen, is under
bail for violating his oouncilmanio
oath in being interested in city con
tracts, and former Chief Hll is under
bonds to answer to charges of forgery
and falsification of records in connect
ion with the oity's filtration plants.
At the hearing given both before the
magistrate the name of the contract
ing firm of D. J. McNichol & Co.,
which is constructing the greater part
of the filtration system, was frequent
ly brought in by witnesses. The
members of the firm are former In
surance Commissioner Israel W. Dur
ham, the leader of the looal repupbli
can organiztion; State Senator J. P.
McNichol and bis brother, Daniel J.
Tbe district attorney, in refusing
to add the charge of conspiracy to
the indictment drawn up against
Cavrn and Hill, and refusing to in
stigate proceedings against "certain
other persons," says that the evidence
upon which the charges are based
was taken from the trials of Cavin
