]!AYORALTY OF New ORKLEABS,
City Jall, 4th day of March, 1'5u.
To the Honorabe i 'elin Council
Geraitniuc T'le following resolution has been
laid before me :
"Jfesolced. Tat the finance committee, with
the approval of the Board of Aldermen, appoint
receivers to clli ct market revenues during any
vacancy in the lesteeship of any market, and that
all ordinances oi'prts of ordminances in conflict
herewith be rerc:,.led."
This resolution, oi my judgment, is violative of
both the theory arid practice of municipal Igov
ernments and destrsotive of the very principles
which nnderlie oir charter. For nothing is clearpr
than that instrumennt separates the executive and
legislative d p:tments as in the national and
State governs' its, and that waile the legislative
branch can pro de for the appointment of such
agents as are ni cessary to aid in the execution
of the laws the appointing power should be left
to the executive, whose duty it is to enforce them.
The right of a ccmmittee to appoint in a real or
supposed contmrgen^y or emergency, could be ex
tend d so as t. oake the members thereof execu
tive officers, anzd thus we should have the strange
and unprecedented anomaly of the lawmakers
creating themsnelves executors of the law.
1 have certainly no desire to use the power
vested in me am the executive other than for the
public good; nor do I doubt the ability of any
commrnittee from your honorable boards to appoint
proper persoti as receivers of markets. But in
dependent ot ouch objections as I have named to
giving the tiu.ance, or other committee appomting
power, I find an express prohibition in an act of
the Ltgsilatuor- ot 1850 in the following words :
Bection 11. "'Tuat no committee of said council
shall ever be veted with power to appoint to
office, and no ofl! er shall be removed from office
unless by a resolution of the council."
The wisdom .f the Legislature of 1860 is fully
shown in the adilption of the above as though for
seeing the ev\reit ,-onloeion and impossiblity of
h Iding the ezec:uiire respon-ible for the non-en
forcement of the laws and ordinances by the ap
pointment of ir:e poneible parties.
For the above reasons I am constrained to with.
bold ny aignature from the resolution, whice I re

FIrNcA COMMITTEE ROOM,
No. 21 City Hail,
New Orleans. March 9, 1869.
Tothe Bonorable President and Members of the Board of
Amisais ldermen :
Gentlemen--Your committee beg leave to re
port as tollows:
On the resolution relative to the sale of the col
lecticn of licenses on ittuerant peddlers who sell
without any ostensible place ot business, sent back
to this committee.
That this contract was sold, as it was customary
to cell it before the war, viz: for one year from
t; e date of the completion of the contract.
Past experience had then proved superabund
antly that neither the treasurer nor his emplo)eis,
the license inspectors, ever could collect a single
dollar from itinerant dealers selling illicitly. ny
sample or otherwise, without any ostensible p'a:e
of business. It does not appear that the present
administration hias been more successful. We
n:ust state, however, that the impunity of these
parties arises mainly from the tact that the city
can neither impose a fine nor inflict a penalty on
any one for the failure or refusal to pay a license.
This the hupreme Court of th's tate has repeated.
13 decided. This contract, while it noes not lnter.
tore with the collection of lic-rnses by the oily
treasiuer frn.m tho.e regularly eltabiahed here.
delegated this power to a party who purchased
it as the highest bidder from the controller and
who gave a good and solvent security.
Your cunimittee are of opinion that this con
tract will add to the city's revenues: the resolu
tion is therefore reported hack to your honorable
body and its adoption recommended.
On the resolu'in appropriating five thousand
dollars to the Mechanics' and Agricultural Fair
In other parts of the Union great liberality is
shown to all such institutions; the city of New
Orleans should not be backward in showing her
appreciation of the results already obtained ay an
organizatloD which has for its main object the
promotion and development of agriulture, mau ,."

t nit to foresee, will soon be of imantuss advau

after a careful investigation into the facts of the
case the honor to submit the following report.
Under ordinance No. 1141, new series, it is
clearly the auty of the street cutnmts:uoner to re
no.ve all obstructions, such as shows. fl in;
horses, etc.. encumbering the levee or elsewhere.
I tie rent v- s them at all it can only be because

wh-wh covers those domiciliated tiere. The street

to make arrests for rutsances existing, or miade

mand special ot;icers whom ne could direct to sup
press the gemes and villminies troaspiring in the

iottr]ere further than remove any ubstruction
contined in violation of existing ordilnrtnces.
So far as the sLow at the head o: C2inal street,
kept ty one Ames is concerned, we are not aware
that the tent occupying the ground 1t the great
source if complain:. but we are aware that owing
to the notorious character of the busiihe-s carried
on unier its folds that, although the tent occupy
iug the ground is not an ohustrition and may not
be removed under ordinance Ni,. 1111, e:ul the
evel! complained of and the netarions trrnc' ions

pressed, it strikes y or e .tlni:tte that ute mayor's

The creet cormlmoivtner in the execution of
this ordinance calls un.n the council for instruc

re-t:ained by written inStrctlions from the may r
in so tar as thie case of Ames is involved, "ai

Altbough proper off'itl courtesy may have in
duced a d:sposltion on the part of the -tre-t com
mis-loner to yield nto this hatter to the h:ghest
authority known to our municipal ga.,veunimen;,
still there can be no question a. to his duty in en
forcing the ordinance, and we can crly reconcile

consulted with the city attorney in the matter of
the petition of Adam IBoneuion, larmer of the Port

of the attorney. I have the honor to submit the
necessary resointion. Very respectfully.

The opinion of the city attorney accompanying
the above report was read as follows:
Orrtcs CT-v ArrORtEY.
Room No. 13. City HaLl,
New Orleans, March a, 1863.
Atderman J. C. Rose. Special Committee, estr. :
I have examined the question of law invoked in
the complaint of the farmer of the Port Market
against the lessee of the Vegetable Market, Second
District. and think the complaint well founded.
The distinction between the meat and vegetable
markets of the Second Dastrict is well definoed and
has existed for many years. The market has
been designated the "Vegetable" Market, and
reserved as a vegetable market to the zelKuslo
of meet stalls almost Immemorially. The stalls
are not constructed for the male of meat. The
lease was sold of the Vegetable Market. the lesee
knew from the specifications, knew from the adju.
dication of the lease, from his set of contract and
from custom and uiage, that he bought the lease
of the "Vegetable" Market and that only. I do
not think he has a legal right to convert the mar*
ket into a meat market. and the city o, any other
party Inaterested can enjoin him from further pro
ceedings In his illegal acts.
If the proper resolution instructing me to set, is
passed by the council, I shall Institute the necesa.
ry proceedings. Respectfully,
Haiay J. LsovY, City Attorney.
