Alderman Morris said yesterday altcrnoou
In I lie council meeting that ho did not un
derstand how it wa, tint whllo City L'leik
llowlcyu'cs pens worth sovutitj-llvc cents a
box, city Treasurer cuuiilnghaui uses pens
worth two anda-halt and threo dollars a box,
and while tho cloik uses pencils worth tllty
cents a dozen tho treasurer uses pencils
worth dollar aud twenty-ilvo cents a doziii'
Alderman ltlttcnhouso then rose and said
ho thought the treasurer used too many
pens anyhow. Then the discussion stop
ped. If the treasurer Is extravagant why
don't the council bring him up with a short
turn? Why Is the Mibjcct touched and then
dropped. Tho treasurer has probably ex
pended three or (our dollars tor pens and
pencils In the last eight months, and It Is
right that this horrible, leak should be
stopped. If tho eouiii lldon't stop the leuksat
the spigot how can wo get along ? The
bung holo can look to Itself. The spigot Is
me council's stronghold. Tbo pen and pen
cil question is nutv tho all important quer
