Which t'onrsf ?
If the reports which ere flying thick
and fast in regard to the appointments
that Mayor McConochie proposes to
m ike next Monday night have any scm
bl ince of truth, his honor has become
quite an expert trimmer. He first an-
nc unced bis intention of being governed
a ood deal by the wishes of the alder
man, and to gst an expression from the
cc uncil a secret sess'.on was held at his
request. The Akgcs published what
transpired at that meeting. With the
eiception of Street Commissioner Harris,
tie present ofSzia's were indorsed. Af
terward the mayor stated that
tlere would be very little change,
a significant remark considering the
a ;tion of the secret meeting, and was
v rtually saying that Mr. Harris would be
the only one dropped.
Now it is said that Mr. McConochie
his "hedged" considerably, and
that the aldermanic state has been
knocked into smithereens. It is claimed
that he is playing fast and loose with the
aldermen, and consequently there is kick
ing all along the line . He would like to
a lift the responsibility upon the alder
men, but instead of acceding to their
v ishes he wants them to arrive at his way
The Akgcs is sorry tr hear
tais reported vacillation of Mayor
McConochie. His record of the past two
3 ears would irdicate more firmness and
decision than he is now displaying, nis
tppointeeB of two years ago have proven
themselves worthy and efficient with cne
exception. That lapse of judgment has
to often been pointed out to nim that it
needs no reiteration. He is as cognizant
df it as anybody, and is censurable In not
having rectified the mistake as soon as it
As The Argus sees it there is on!y one
honorable course for the mayor to pursue.
Having solicited the opinion of the couni
cilmen as to whom they considered best
litted for the different offices, be should
nbide by their decision. If he does oth
erwise he compromises himself and places
u premium on duplicity.
