had received his commission as Third
Recorder from the City Commission- di
ers, Thomas P. Goff, who succeeded PE
the late Peter Clement as Recorder. ut
being appointed by ex-Governor San- CO
ders, and who was subsequently oust
ed from his position by Governor Hall
and the office turned over to Guy E.
Sadler, and upon whose resignation
Benjamin W. Borne was appointed,
and then John M. Duffy was elected m
for the position, took charge of the
office at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon.
Although Mr. Duffy had instituted
injunction proceedings in the civil
court restraining Golf from taking
charge, earlier in the day, when Goff
presented his commission to Duffy in
the latter's office, the office was quiet- p1
ly turned over to Goff. Duffy and his p,
clerks gathered up their belongings ti
and left the building. cc
But few words were passed between sl
Duly and Goe when they ipet in tj
Duffy's ofce Monday afternoon, that H
is, in so far as discussing the taking ce
of the position was concerned. dl
The first act of Reco, Jer Goff was bi
- to select his office force. He appoint- w
c. ed Samuel Boylan, a well-known young
man of the Fifteenth ward, as his
Ir chief clerk and then named Edward N
to Grimes as Janitor of the court. Grimes
n. served under Goff during his last reign.
When asked about the injunction
Ill proceedings Tuesday morning Record
in er Goff said: "I did not know that such
g. proceed'ngs had been brought until I
on reached my home after 5 o'clock Mon- di
e. day afternoon. I will fight the case. ,
rs Further than that I have nothing to 0o
on say," h- concluded. ti
John M. Duffy was appointed by a
ly Governor Hall on November 13 to the a
m position of Third Recorder to fill out n
- the unexpired term of Benjamin W. P
Borne, who had resigned. In his suit ti
..filed Monday, Duffy asserts that the fI
city commissioners have no right to c
name a recorder.
It is set up that the General Asiem- r
bly, at its session of 1912, passed what A
purported to be a charter for the city n
of New Orleans, under which the ex-l
ecutive, legislative and administrative I
powers of the city are verged and con- I
solidated into a mayor and four com- <
missioners, with authority to create i
and establish recorders' courts, and I
that Martin Behrman, under this new
charter, was elected mayor, and W. B.
Thompson, Edward E. Lafaye, Harold'
W. Newman and A. G. Ricks were nam-'
ed commissioners at an election held
on Nov. 5.
It is alleged that under this new
charter the mayor and commissioners
have appointed Thomas P. Goff as
Third Recorder, and that this office, as
established by Act No. 45 of 18W, the I
old city charter, is lawfully held by a
the petitioner, who is entitled to exer:
lue the functions and duties of the I
New Charter Attacked.
It is averred that the laws and con
stitation of the 8tate have reserved to I
the electors of this city the right to I
choose the recorder sad other officers
who exercise the police power in whole
or in part. and that the Legislature is
without the power to withdraw .the
right from the electors. It is sated
Sthat the oflce of recorder is a Jadicial1
ofhe within the meannlrg oft the con-1
stitution, and must be' elected by the
elector-themselves, n ud that portion

He was given the good wishes of the

MAYOR BEHRMAN'S ADDRESS TO
THE NEW COMMISSION
'Mayor Martin Behrman's first ad
dress to the Commission Council evi
denced keen appreciation on the part
of the head of the new city administra.
tion of the responsibilities the com
mission is facing. He declared that if,
as has been said, commission govern- if
ment is to be conducted on the princi
ples which control private business,
the people of New Orleans are very
fortunate in the personnel of the first
commission. The mayor said:
"Gentlemen:-As the survivor of the in
regime that has just passed out, and all
as the city's chief executive under the m
new order of things, it is my pleasure
no less than my duty to extend to each
and all of you a hearty greeting. YouI wI
. are now about to undertake the labori- to
. ous and responsible task of putting w
into motion the new system of govern
I mert adopted by the people of New
Orleans at the recent electiba, and for
. the more efficient administration of
I which they have selected you as their »
. commissioners. 01
r "To a limited extent only does this -
i change involve experiment, for the
vastly greater part of the charter un
i der which the city has been working -
p for years, has fortunately been retain
r ed Intet. And a more satisfactory
code of laws and regulations for the
I government of a great sad growing
municipality it would be difficult to de
vise. It has the inestimable advant
age which comes of a thorough test,
and its successful application thus far
p to all the vadoeas phases of adminls
D trative work demonstrates its practi
Scability sad ready adjustment to the
, new conditions.
B "Therefore. about the only material
a change in the present, from the old
I system, is contained in those prov*i
I sonbs of the new charter which, elinl
atilnga the Coundcil of twentyne, eon
