TOO MANY SMALL SALARIES At a Meeting Yesterday It Was Pointed Out That tho Proposed Law In Many Cases Was Very Defective. Bumr, Feb. 17.-Representatives Booth, Swett and Paschal, Aldermen Bowman and Paseoe, Mayor Dugan, City Attorney Cotter, ex-Alderman Campbell, Judge Naughton and others gathered in the city clerk's ofee tlihs afternoon to consider what municipal legislation is desirable to be enacted by the legislature. The pass age of the code had set some of the city oflmials at sea as regards the salaries. Mr. Booth stated at the start that all acts as to mnunicipal legislation passed in the last legislature will stand, and will have the effect of amendments to the code. The code does not rescind these seacts, and the acts of the last legislature hold, whatever the code may say. The code commission did not repeal any laws relating to cities passed since 18191. If no amendments are introduced, the code with late legislation will provide practic ally for the municipal provisions we have at present. The real business before the conference was to see what additional legislation is needed. Mr. Booth said that the present legis lature is of an economical turn of mind. It is down on an increase of salari's and throughout is strongly favorable to a re duction of expenses. Ho believed, how ever, that muicipal legislation needed by a city like Butte would moot with gen eral favor. The conference then proceeded to ex press its views and 1Mr. Booth took notes and will have the result of the delibera tions embodied an al amendmenot to be presented to the legislature. The mayor's salary was first considered and it was concluded to leave that at I$2,000, subject to the approval of the ccoun ecl, the latter having the power to, fix satI salary at any suin not to exceed A".000. The code would make the mayor's ialary $60J. In cities of the second class the salary of the mayor will be placed at $1.500 and of the third class at 1; Nu. Under the code the salarv of the police magistrate Is ptlaced at ;1.5)1J. It was de eided to mIIake' it 2,tlUO ill tile arnondment. This is in fuill for all services. No fees arn allowe-l The salary of the city treasurer will he fixed at not to exceed tl .lJU1. with no fees or percentages whatlevtr. The code places the salary at $.L',~. Heretofore the fees and percentages have been the prineipal part of the city treasurer's in come. The salary of the city attorney was fixed at S,At)o with no fees. The code placed it at $2,tkxk. Heretofore the city at torney has received a fee for every paid case, but this will now go into the treas ury of the city. The name of the city marshal will be changed to chief of police. His salary, it was decided, should not exceed $*OX) per month in full for all services. The 30 lie has received from the county each month is shut off. 'The powers of the mayor and the city council were thought to be well deflted under the code and no change was rec ontinended. It ls provided that they must be freeholders in the city of Blutte. The matter of the police commission was considered, but lodellnlrte conclulsion was arrived at. Mr. Booth said there would certainly be a big opposition to the provision for a police cormnallssion antd he would suggest that the polico cor.mis sioners' provision be placed in a separ rate bill, as it would not do to jeopardizo the hill fixing the salaries. =The salary of the city clerk was fixed at not to exceed $ltittu, and provision is made for the council to elect such other officers as may be needed, such as assist ant city clerk, otc. The provision requiring the city attor ney to prosecute all state cases in the po lice court will prolbably be changed. All the representatives except Booth went back to Helena on the 3: 0 train. Mr. Booth remained over and held a con ference with thie justices In regard to leg islation desired for the justice courts. Some of the justices will probably go over to Helena early In the week, and Mayor Dugan expects to make a trip over :there some dlay this week. AMr. lxothl is of the opinion that the anti-guaimbling hill will certainly pass tihe house.
