Here's a Pretty State of Affairs
A SEEI0US CONFLICT RAGING.
An Amunlngly Peculiar Predicant ent la
Whlc-h tbe City Finds Itself I uvolvea
the Mayor, an Editor, the City Ai torney
and a Corporation President, an 1 Only
Two People Are Making the Trouble Af
Geoese-') finds itself in a somew bat re-
maiktble predioiment . Henry L Kiner
is editor of the News of tbat city and is
!bo major of the city. Hon C. W.
Dunham is city attorney and is president
of tbe e'ectric light company of Geneseo.
This corporation furci$hes the power for
running the pump at the city water
works. Tbe South Side echool at Geneseo
was recently destroyed by fire, and it is
claimed the destruction was due to tbe
failure of the waterworks, tbe electric light
company having neglected to furnish a
sufficient head of steam. E iitor Kiner
assumed this position in hie paper
and backed up his assertions in
his official capacity as executive
of tbe city. Tue const q-ience has been
the institution of a municipal inveetiga
lion, acd a number of special council
meetings have been held to take matters
into consideration, one having been
called at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Pub
lic feeling up there in the Maple City has
been under considerable of a heavy pna
sure if the waterworks has not. At the
latt council meeting, it was decided to
make a test of the waterworks power fur
nished by tbe light company, and when,
tbe mayor ordered the city aito'ney to
notify the president of the company to
make tbe test, thht combined individual
declined to act. Tbe story of the difficul

The mayor made a formal req jest to
he permitted to test tbe works, staling
that the reason was Because of the fail
ure of the water works at tbe No-th Side
school house fire. President Dunham
thereupon let loose a flood of rancour
and profanity, directed to tbe mayor,
whom be accused of hostility to tbe com
pany. Being pressed to give bis reasons
for the charge of hostility, Dutihim said

apiece with tbe other "hostility." Ue
said the News was to blame for the feel

on a Wednesday night, and the Kews d d
not appear till the next Wednesd y evet
ing, this is a palpable mistake. T ie News
then said that there was no pressure, and
did not mention the Eleciric L'ght Co. at
al1, or attempt to locate the fault.
Tbe mayor proposes to coottu t tbe
city's business tbe same as he would hit
own When he employs printers in bis
office, or buys anything, or contracts with
any person, he inEists upon getting what
be pays for.
Wben Attorney Dunham mad j a con
tract with Electrician Dunham to do the

city with privileges. But among these
was one entitling the city to SO pounds

to do it. without fear or favor.

being burned to ashes, pending tie pre

Th . mayor requested Attorm y Dun-
bam to prepare this formal req lest for
the council to set upon Bt the regular
meeting Tuesday evening Tbo response
was that be cauuo: act as the ci' y's at
torney as between the city and tbe com
panv, of which he is the president. It is
presumable that it might be tte same
should tbe city bave a case with the rail
road Tbe mayor has been ectuated only by
a desire to do bis duty. This it right
fully expected of him by every citizen,
for this be has been grossly ins llted by
tbe city attorney, in tbe latter's offlice
with tbe added sneering taunt, "you've
got to take it !" The members of the
council and others present agree that bis
bluE tictics didn t go, for our pnza at
torney get back as good as be seat.
There bas been talk in tbo fire depart
ment of resigning in a body, and that ex
tremity may come yet.
