It seems that now that the Po?
sition of Recorder Is vacant that
th re is small attention paid to the
city ordinances for many offenders
have been guilty of various crimes
and misdemeanors during the past
?eck?In fact more than at any
time in the recent past. However,
mayor pro tern Wright has bOOU sit?
ting In the Recordes/s chair and the
dOOOS that he has been giving out
have not tasted good, although they
have In many cases proved effective
and It Is probable that the offenders
will think twice hereafter before
committing the offense for they know
there Is someone to take the Record?
ers place and to receive all the money
that tl > can spare for the city.
