"Who are city officials?"
General Manager John G. Huntoon
of the Tri-City Railway company has
put the above question to the new city
commission, and members of that body
were unable to answer.
They assure the street railway mag
nate that the mayor, the commission
ers, the police and the firemen are city
officials. But are numerous others
now included in those receiving
courtesies, on account of the city?
The commissioners frankly con
fessed their ignorance in this matter;
they must confer with special counsel
before they can answer the question:
"Who are city officials under the
commission form of government law?"
Mr. Huntoon feels the pass privilege
is being abused at this time; that nu
merous passes are being issued some
to persons not legally city officials;
that there must be a stopping place
ATTORNEYS TO ANSWER.
He said the railway company has se
cured the services of Searle & Marshall
of Rock Island to arrange for the com
pany an answer to the question, "Who
are city officials?" and he urges the
commission to have counsel arrange
the city's answer. These answers will
then be compared and within possibly
a week's time the public service corpor
ation and the municipality will have a
working basis on which to determine
"Who are city officials ?"
"The officers of a private corporation
are its president, secretary, treasurer,
and board of directors." said Mr. Hun
toon. "The city is also incorporated.
Why should it have such a long list of
officials? In tire past there has never
been an interpretation as to who were
city officials, and a great many pass
books have been issued. The new law
provides that the distinction shall be
clearly made that only city officials
shall receive passes. We desire to re
main strictly in the bounds of the law."
WHAT I. AW SAYS.
The present franchise of the Tri-City
Railway company provides that "city
officials" shall receive passes. The
commission form law says:
"Prohibition of free transportation
shall not apply to policemen or firemen
in uniform, nor shall any free service
to city or village officers or employes
heretofore provided by any franchise,
or license, be affected by this section."
Therefore, because a franchise grant
ed by the old council provides city offi
cials shall receive passes
"Who are city officials?"

1 Tailors' Union States Wage Schedule
j Has Not Keen Signed.
j Although the tailors of union Xo.34 have
igone back to their work in the local
shops, they state that two of the shops
jbave not yet signed the new schedule
which was presented April, 1 and
i which, because not accepted, provoked
I a seven day 6trike. The following
statement has been issued: 'The
boss tailors have agreed to give the
10 per cent Increase in wages, but
have so far refused to sign the sched
ule. Until they do so they will not
be allowed to use the union label and
so will be running open shops. A meet
ing of the local was held yesterday
afternoon at the call of the president,
Mr. Bolin, and the members decided
j to remain at work, but to bar the
shops which refused to sign the sched
ule from using the label."
After a trip to the west end of the
city yesterday afternoon for the pur
pose of looking over the location
where the city formerly dumped its
garbage into the Mississippi river,
the members of the municipal com
mission practically decided thai it
will be necessary to build a modern
plant for the destrojing of the refuse
of the city. This has been rendered
imperative by a federal order prohib
iting the dumping of garbage into the
river. The commission intends to
look into the proposition with a view
to purchasing an incinerating plant.
In the meantime, however, the com
mission will have to make temporary
arrangements for disposing of the
MAKING rP ORDINANCES.
The commissioners met this morn
ing in informal session and continued
It this afternoon. They are busily en
gaged in formulating ordinances which
will specify the duties that are to
come under each department and also
fixing the salaries of the various city
officials. It is expected that these
ordinances will be ready for passage
at the regular meeting tomorrow
There will be services at Osage Friday
afternoon at 3 o'clock.
