Toward tbe close of the meeti ng of the Board of 8treet and Sswer D'rectora last evening President Chambers whipped Director Simmons Into line and paralyzed Director Pratt and ibis well laid scheme to hold as a club over the head of City Solicitor Herman the claim of Horace G Knowles for $1 000 for profession«! services In the conduct of the defense in the damage wilts o f Wilckena and Sewatd vs. the Mayor and Oonacll of Wilmington. * 'I promised to bring a certain matter before the board this evening and I am going to do It," said President Chambers by way of introdnalng the subject "It Is in regai d to rennmerating cur attor neya for services rendered. Mr. Knowles was of great service snd assis tance to the city solicitor In tbe WIL ckens and also in the Seward case, In ' which we have bad, wo might say, ver dlots In our favor by reason of disagree ment of the juries. There baa never been a doubt that It was through the ability of these young men that we won these cases. I think It Is the duty of the city to pay for those services. Take the Owen J Hesslon caBe. paid Mr. Bird $600 by way of settlement and tbe cost to tbe city for onteide law yers' fees was from $1,200 to $1 500 la each of these other cases wo could not bave got ou' side counsel for less than $1,000 I belive that the public at large appreciates the services of Mr. Knowles more than we ere anare. If we had had some old lawyers like Bradford & Vandegrlft, with Mr. Bird opposed to them, and they had caused a disagree ment, tho effect against Mr. Bird would not have been so bad aa for him to have been defeated by two lawyers so young as City Solicitor Harman ar.d Mr. Knowles. This will dishearten those who meditate bringing salt against the city, aud also tend to restrain those who do bring suit from taking their cases to Mr Bird 1 move that an order be drawn in favor of Mr. Knowlee for $500 iu the Wilkens case and $'00 In the Seward case as remuuera'iou for his servioe3. I should bate to offer him anything less because I believe that he has earned that much '' Director Pratt—"flea Mr Knowles made auy written application here? ' Director Simmous—"I brought this question up at one of our special meet lugs I then said that Mr Knowles' services shou'd be recognized by this department. 1 still think so It Is hard to calculate Ihe benifit he has done to the city iu the defense of these eases by even causing a disagreement of the juries. It will deter many people from orlnglng suits agalust the city. I have already beard of one or two cases whore, In all humau probability, If these oases had been decided against us, we should uave bad to defend them. O.hers already Instituted have now been dropped I have been in favor of making au allowance to tbe city solicitor, and am still more In favor of doing that aud allowing him to dispose of the money as he sees best." President Chambers—' I Ihlnk the iaw specifics Mr. Harman's salary " Direc or Simmons—"I am disposed to vole for the motion because the services rendered will not be auy to well paid Wo for Director Pratt—"I appreciate Mr. Knowles' services My only objection to this motion ie the stand that the etty solicitor has takeu in reference to this board in refnelug to employ additional counsel in the este he now has in band. He bas taken tbe ground that he will Lot employ additional counsel at oar sng gestion. He has simply statttfi d him self In the eyes of this board, by st) ing positively that he will not allow «uy addit'ojal counsel to oe employed. Yon can't pay Mr. Kaowles except through tbe city solicitor. He has to approve the allowance " President Chambers—^"Not necssssrlly so Director Pratt—"The lew U plain oa that point." President Chambers—"He will approve th« action of the board in this respect." Director Pratt—"Then he sdrnlts that be will employ additional counsel, some thing he has declined positively to do at oar request That is the only objection that 1 have to make I am perfectly willing to pay additional counsel now I am perfectly willing to pay him $500 in ekeh of there cases bnt I want it dis tinctly understood that the etty solicitor has no right to decline to appoint addi tional counsel when ws aek him to." This ended the debate and tbe clnb that Director Pratt had been holding over tbe bead of City Solicitor Harman fell to the floor with a "dull thud" when President Chambers and Director Cham bers voted the $1,000 to Mr KnowLs THROWN FROM A MOYiHG TRAIN Jeremiah O'Connor Hart at the P , W & 11.
