of tho old is continued, is coinpasod of Cap

Tho ordinance recently passed by tho
city council defining thu duties of tho city
attorney and fixing his salary, met a long
felt demand. Tho object of tho council Is
very plain : it is to ocouonii.o in tho expen
diture of the city's money for legal talent.
And it seeks to do this by making tho
office of city attorney an object worthy to
bo contested for by mon of standing and
rccognizod ability in the legal profession,
who could represent the city ably la ill
matters at court and conduct its cases of
whatever Importance with credit to himself i
and profit to the city. If such a man be
elected next Tuesday, the office of copora
tiin counsel will be superflous and can be
abolished; if not, it will be indispensable
and tbe city must continue to pay eleven
hundred dollars yearly for having its im
portant legal complications properly
watched and managed. Tbe election of
Mr. Loek to the city attorneyship next
Tuesday, would be carrying out the plan
of the council and aid it in its commeuda
ble efforts to economize.
