May JL—The supreme court has affirmed the judgment of the iew-r court in the MK"*uley case, and untese a rehearing is bad the convicted ex-city treasurer will be sent to Walla Walla te serve out a four years' asnter.ee for ac cepting Interest on deposits of city funds ta the Columbia National bank, which failed 1a October. IW6. McCauiey WHS convicted by a Jury February a UM. He was sentenced to four years at Walla Wall* aad after spending a few day* ia Jail in company with hi* predecessor ia olfW, George W. Boaga was released on bonds pending the hearing of an ap> peal to the supreme court. The dacisioa by that body ends the chapter. McCauley** experience »s In some ways pathetic, and hia case is more deserving of sympathy than is that of Boggs. Mc- Cauley Is an old soldlT. and previous to his political association with Boggs bora a reputation for square dealing and up rightness in Taroma, Boggs. in the sum mer and fall of ISBB, came srithin an ace of being a defaulter, and it was with ths greatest difficulty that he succeeded in warding off the attacks of his political enemies and others, who understood the extremity In which he stood. He was successful in keeping the banks in which he was Interested alive, and then, when the spring election of UM approached, cast about for some one on whom he could unload. McCauley had achieved some prominence during the campaign of lttt a* president of ths Harrison Club, the only organisation in Tacoma that stood by the Republican state ticket. Boggs secured McCauley's nomination for city treasurer over W. A. Sternberg, the pres ent incumbent, only after a hard fight. Hs spent a large amount of money in electing McCauley. who was the low man on the ticket. McCauley easily fell into ths evtl ways of his predecessor. Despite the opposition of the finance committee, of which P. D. Norton was chairman. McCauley persisted in keeping a targe balance in the Columbia National bank, which finally failed in October. 1£95. When the bank waa placed in the hands of a receiver, evidence implicating McCauley and County Treasurer Hedges was discov ered. McCauley was convicted of receiv ing interest on the city's balance. His un lawful jprofits amounteu to several thou sands of dollars. He was tried and con vietsd snd sentenced to serve four years in the penitentiary. McCauley lives in style in a handsome house on South K street. He is married snd has s family. Doubtless his attorneys will pursue the same tactics adopted by those of ex-Treasurer Boggs. and It may be some time before the judgment of ths court is carried Into effect. OLYMPIA. May 21.-The supreme court today affirmed the judgment of the supe rior court for Pierce county in the caae of the State of Washington '-••«T»ondent, vs. James W. MoCauley, gppellsal. This case is similar to uf the State vs. Boggs. appellant having been treas urer of Tacoma. In his position he came into possession of large sums of money. The information charges him with having accepted intereafi upon a deposit of the city's money made by him In the Columbia National bank. The prcof shows that ap pellant's pass book was balanced from time to time with the books of the bank and found to agree with the bank books, and the book was returned to the appellant, together with the checks. This, the court thinks, was competent proof for the pur pose of showing that tne charges made t'pen the bx>k* of the bank to the account of the appellant beoauae of the checks drawn by him on his account were proper and legal charges and tended to show ap pellant s knowledge of the credits made to his personal account. HVOSTROM BACK. B«a4s a Pointed Letter to the Civil lervles Commissioners. TAOOMA. May 21—Arvld Rydstrom, commissioner of publio works, answered the communication sent to him yesterday by the board of civil service commission ers in relation to the appointment of Fra ser and Workman, as transitman and rodman respectively. The answer is plain and straight from the shoulder and speaks for ttselt. It ia as follows: "Ou the 30th instant you certified W. P. Eraser to me for the position of transit man In the city engineer's office, and for the position of rodman Archer Workman. In certifying these men for such places it seems to me you have transcended the du ties of your office and assumed preroga tives that the civil servhe amendments to the charter do not glvo you. Tou have hold no examinations for such places and have no eligible list, save and except you have approved one emergency man for such service. The men you certify as eliglbles hsve been examined and passed solely as laborers. For positions requir ing technical skill you have appointed un skilled labor, rs. You may maintain they can fill the plnees. but how do you know without an examination? "Following the precedent you have thus established you might supply from your laborers' list men for ail positions as come under your fostering care, for engineers, various foremen and chiefs, etc.; and, in deed Judging bv some of the men thus far furnished me you have followed such a plan before. -The positions were only temporary, for three or four days' work, and was the first time occasion demanded them for over Six months. At the time your let ter was received withholding approval of the m* n thev had worked three and one half days and the Job on which they were emrnsefl had been completed. I call your attention to section 8 in the charter amendments, which section grves the head or any oepartment the rtgnt to m«k>' temporary appointments to meet emergencies. I fall to find any provision In the charter where It gives you the right to make such appointments. Your duty is to appro*#, but not to appoint." Ml< Ml». \\ \LI«M MEET.
