VETOED BY THE MAVDK.
The Ordinance Increasing the City Engi?
Mayor Jones has vetoed the ordinance
recently adopted by Counoll providing
for an increase in the foroe of tbo otBoe
of tho city engineer. Tbe ordinance
provided for an assistant at $50 and a
rodman at $35 per month. Had tbe or?
dinance gone into effect tbe expense of
the office would have been Increased S43
per month. Tbe present assistant re?
ceives $4*2 por month.
Tbe mayor's message convoying the
veto is as follows:
To the Honorable City Council:
I fail to approve the recommenda- '
tlon passed by the Counoil November 7, j
1805, giving to tbe olty engineer an as?
sistant at $30 per month, and a rodman
at $35 per month. I And that auction.
33, chapter 1, pago 28, provides:
"No money shall be expended on any
department of tbo city government be?
yond tho amount appropriated to Buch
department in tho general appropria?
tion ordinance for the fiscal year, unless
sucb expenditure shall bo authorized by
three-fourths of tbe vote of all the
members elected to Council."
Therefore, thero in no fund appropri?
ated for tho paymont of these two men
in tho general appropriation ordinance
and if they aro employed tbore is no
provision for paying tbolr salaries. A
lettor from tbo chairman of the finance
committee, In response to one written
by me, states: "That tbe salary ap?
propriation will have to besupplomented
to meet salaries of different city offi?
cers, now employed," and to use the
langnage of the chairman of tbe finance
committee, "There will bo a deficit on
account of salaries at tho close of tbe
year, first of July, 1896, of $1,411 37."
A letter from tbe city auditor also
states that the appropriation for salaries
already made will not Day the regular
Balariod officers already approved by
Council, and that tbo appropriation will
have to be supplemented, whether any
additional chargea aro made to the ac?
count or Dot.
I, thorefora, find no fund provided to
moot this additional expense of $43 per
month allowed to tbe office of tbe city
engineer, and for this reason fall to ap?
prove tbe recommendation. Respect?

that tbe increased force allowed to my

provide for any contingency tbat might
arlso, which waa not provided for in tho
general appropriation, an appropriation
of $1,000 was subsequently placed to tbo

Th?j Socrotary told them that Minis?
ter Terrell had been instructed to make
the strongest possible representations
to the porte as to the necessity of af?
fording protection to Americans gen?
erally, and Bald that he waa satlofled
that such representations had not only
been made, but that the Turkish au?
thorities hr>d virtually promised to do
all that had been askod. Consequently,
the propor protection of our citizens In
Turkey resolved Itself into a question of
good faith and of ability on tho part ot
the porte to make ltB promises good.
Tbe Secretary made It quite clear,
however, that while the United States
Government would do all in its powor to
protect Americans in Turkey it would
not interfere in the settlement ot the
general questions In dispute and would
leave these matters to Turkey and to
the combined powers ot Europe to settle
among themselves. The reports of the
missionaries expressed themselves as
entirely eatiafJed with the course of the
Government in the matter.

WEEKLY BSTIBW OV TRADE.
The Stook Market Recovering?Outlook
for Cotton, Wheat and Iron.
R. Q. Dun 4 Go's, weekly review of
trade says: Tbe aoare about gold ex?
ports had no real significance, and al- j
though $3,350,000 more will go out to?
day tbe stock market has baen recover*
ing. There was and la a substantial
cause of difficulty, in tbe fact tbat ex?
ports of products have been too small to
meet tbe greatly lnoreaaed imports of
merchandise. The collapse of Kaffir
speculatlona abroad has forced many to
realize on Americans held and the im?
pression that our government may have
to borrow again also operates to our dis?
advantage. But thero is no local dis?
turbance of money markets.
Tbe government monthly crop report
has caused, as usual, rather more un?
certainty as to its Interpretation than
previously existed as to orops. Tho
cotton statement, lacking account of
acreage on which It was based, was of
only speculative value and the mero
rumor that Mr. Nelll had not reduced
hie ostimate of the orop actually weighed
more than the official ostlmato The
bottom fact Is that evon a smaller orop
than anybody exacts, with throa
million bales carried over, will assur?
edly prevent any famine In cotton.
Meanwhlio the exports decrease 30 per
cont. in quantity.
Whoat perplexes the oldest Inhab?
itant. Thore is really little reason to
expect a yield larger than last yoar's,
but Western receipts, 8,S03,8G4 bushels,
against 4,036,639 last year, do not moan
scarcity of wheat.
The output of pig Iron November 1
w?b 317,306 tons weekly, about 10 por
cont. larger than ever before, and a con?
tinuance of the same production for six
weeks more would make tbe halt-year's
output 5,930,000 tons or more, about
450,000 tons greater than in another
half year. Tho startling fact
is tbat demand for products of
iron and steel falls off, notwith?
standing the Increases In output of
pig, and though only a few concerns
have closed on any lack of orders, prices
aro sinking, having declined 2 7 per
cent, for the week and 6.4 from tho
highest point. For the past week fail?
ures b%ve been 383 in tho United Statos
against 270 last yoar and forty-nine In
Canada against thirty-eight last yoar.
