P.efore he started the ceremony,
however, he decided to look up the
law end see if he had the power to do
so. City Attorney Johnston being ab

Rock Island, who said he doubted if
the commission form law gave such
authority. Attorney C. S. Roberts
was then s?t to work looking up the
law and shortly he brought in the opin
ion given in the opening paragraph.
While the mayor could not perform
the ceremony he decided to help mat

quickly tied, with those who were at

quite clearly what it shall and shall

It is said that in an unoccupied
