the common council advho the sime
nnd al other city otllcias In all mat
ters pertaining to their dultes or af
fecting the interests of tlio city
whether called ujmjii to do so or not
and generally attend to all legal busi
ness of the city except prosecutions
In the police court and appeals there
from
It Is now claimed by tbo mayor and
attorney that It would liavo devolved
upon tbo city attorney to advise the
Inard of education which Is composed
of city officials in tbo franchise
tax matter over which it nnd the
council disagreed and to have brought
tbo suit Instead of that they declare
the board has exceeded Its authority
and not called upon Its own legal ad
viser by whoso advlco It would have
to stand Instead It kicked from the
traces and consulted another lawyer
and then had him bring suit against
tbo city
An answer to the boards petition
