Rival Boards of Supervisors
Open the Fight in the
Supreme Court,
Attorneys Wrangled Until the
Justices Decide Testimony
Must Be Taken,
Kainey Shows His Hand by Inducing
Joseph Greenberg to Petition
as an Intervener.
The rival boards of Supervisors looked
menacingly at each other in the Supreme
Court yeste.'d.y afternoon. A galaxy of
men learnei in me lew and skillful as!
pleaaers ran.cd alon_; the desks facing j
grave Justices. Political hangers-on j
crowded the corridors leading to the
court's chambers. All of ihe seats in the j
hall of justice were occupied and the .
aisle* weie blocked by the surgine c owd. i
The petition of Thomas Morton, ex-
Supervisor, for a writ of mandamus :
which would compel Auditor Broderick i
to spread on his looks the tax levy fixed i
ny the Fulton lodginc-house lawmakers !
wa- to be argued. It was a matinee pei- ;
iormance for the "push" and many cit- i
izens, but .for the ousted Supervisors it j
was different. To them it was a most i
serious affair.
The petition of Morton was to be
heard in the morning by the Justices in
oank, but. owing to the absence of Justice
Temple, the hearing w.is continued U-.til
the afternoon. All of the Justices occupied
! their seats when the cot convened, and
the argument over the petition was soon
in full blast. Tne Justices soon tired of it,
and, concluding that the attorneys could
not agree on tacts, adjourned, alter in
structing then, to present testimony that
would determine the .'acts in question to
Commissioner Niles Searl-. Testimony
was taken until 5 o'clock, and then an ad
journment was taken until this morning.
The proceedings proved quite interest
in*.. The hand vt the bulky Democratic
boss, Sam Rainey, appeared in no uncer
tain light. It was through his agency
that Joseph en berg, a foundryraan who
has some contfacts with the city, was in
duce i to fie a petition in intervention
yesterday morning. As an mtervenor, he
(joined with Morton and asked that the
writ the latter applied for be granted.
he admissions of Greenberg when asked
his jeasons for filing the writ caused a
mild --ensaticn, hut when Robert J. Bar
ton, the ex-janitor selected by the ousted
Supervisors as clerk, declared on the wit
ness-stand that he had not been sworn in
by anybody as ciers, and that he had
given no bonds to faithfully .perform his
duties, tbe crowd smiled and the late
Supervisors looked at each other in a for
lorn sort of way.
The Auditor, who was the respondent
to the petition, was represented by At
torneys W. T. Baggett, E. W. McKinstry,
George W. Scheil and City and County
Attorney Creswell. The latter, however.
took no part in tiie proceedings. The
fight ot tlie old board and Petitioner Mor
ton was looked alter by Attorneys Garret
McEn***rney, E. S. P.ilsbury and John Gar
ber. Mayor Phelan sat to the left of the
Justices for a while, but when the discus
sion became interesting hs secured a chair
behind Attorney Baggett.
The proceedings opened frith the read
ing by Attorney Baggett of the respond
ent's answer to the petition. Ii admitted
the election and qualification of the old
board, and also that it had entered upon
tne duties of office, butdenied that the old
board was in possession of the ollice and
that the complaint riled in the Superior
Court, which ousted it, was a pretended
" The answer recited all the facts relating
to the ousting of the old board and
showed that on September 16, the day on
which Jnage Wail.cc renCered his deci
sion, tne oid Foard of Supervisors ceased
to exist and I at since that date it had
r.ot been in oflic*-. It recited the fact that
since September 16 the new board had oc
cupied and performed the duties of tbe
cilice. It stated that the old board had,
on September -0, pretended to aopoint
James ¥.. Britt as .ciinu Mayor. Tue an
swer denied his appointment, as well a*»
the claim that he ever approved the tax
levy. W^*m\
It denied the fixing of a levy by the old
board and that the real Board of Super
visors ever demanded that the Auditor
compute the taxes at the rates fixed by
Morton and the other ousted Supervisors.
The apt ointment of the new board by
Governor Buld and Mayor Phelan. subse
quent to the decision of Judge Wallace,
was set forth. It recited tneir qualifica
tion and the taking of possession of the
offices and rooms of the board witnout
hindrance. Tie meetings and doings of
the new board were related. It declared
that the levy fixed by the new hoard was
approved by Mayor Piielan. certified by
Clerk Russell and delivered to Auditor
Broierick with * demand that he, as
Auditor, should compute the taxe .
It ended with the statement that Clerk
Russell bad control of the books and
papers of the Board o: Supervisors, that
Mayor Phelan had presided at alt the
meetings of the new board and thet the
right ot tne new board to act as the ad
of~ Supervisors had been recognized by
i itv and County Attorney Cresweil, the
legal advi»er of the Board of Supervisors.
After the reading of the answer Attor
ney Baggett moved tor a dismissal of the
p-titi.n for a writ of mandate. Mr. Mc-
Knerney objected, and stated that certain
questions oi foot had been raised and they
niu-^t be decide i.
"They cla m," said Mr. McEnerney,
"that we never acted as a board. Tney
deny that Morton is a taxpayer, and deny
that mis board duly made or at ah made
a lax Jew."
Mr Baggett admitted that Morton was
a taxpayer, and then Justice McFarland
asked if the attorneys could not agree on
any facts. „ . ,
"We tried to, but could not," replied
Mr. M hi erne v.
"There is not en ustie of fact raised in
our answer," declared Mr. Baggett, "ex
cept as to Morton b ing a taxpayer. That
is the only- disputed iact. We now admit
that he is a taxpayer. We deny that as a
Board of Sut ervisors the tax levy in ques
tion was made. All other questions are
questions of law."
Justice Temple, addressing Mr. Mc- I
The Justices of the Supreme Court Sat in Bank Yesterday to Hear Arguments in Reference
. f C- • « 1 WT *l
to the Supervisorial Wrangle.
Enerney, said: "'He denies that you acted
as a Board 'of Supervisors, and alleges
that you ceased to be a board when tne
judgment was .* n lered."
Mr. Garber, for the petitioner, answered
by saying: "We claim that we were never
ousted and that we are still the de facto
board. They claim they were appointed
by Mayor Phelan. and lo »k possession of
the oflic s without hindrance. The asser
tion has been contes:ed from the begin
ning that they took posses-ion except by
act ol violence after this appeal had been
Mr. Baggett — is the first time I
heard il claimed that tne new board took
forcible possession. That is to be con
tested. We must show that the new* board
is tne de facio board, and that the writ
s ould not issue.
Mr. McEnerney — We also want to show
that Mayor Piielan never organized the
so-called board, and that sis of them are
not electors of the wards Irom which they
were appointed.
The argument then drifted from one
proposition of law to the other. The
form of the mandamus proceedings was
argued, and Justice Beatty, addressing
the attorneys of the new board, said:
"If they show that the Auditor refused
to accept the levy is it not a question of
mandamii* ?"
Mr. Mc Kin ••try replied that it must first
appear that the b iard is a legal body.
•'We show why they were removed,"
added Mr. Scheil.
"They want to show whether or not the
proceedings by law removed them," an
swered Justice Beatty.
Mr. Bacgett said he wanted to get at the
proportion as to what matters were to be
Justice Beatty, adaressinz Mr. Baggest,
said: ' You claim to be ade jure board, j
and that if you are not de jure you arc ac I
facto. Then you make tnat an issue of
fact. You make thai claim formally on
the record and then it is a disputed ques
tion. I don't see how we can decide it
without tak.ri" evidenc."
"That is so,'' agreed Mr. Baggett.
Justice McFarland asked if the parlies
could not agree on the facts. They again
declared they could not. Then the Jus
tice asked if bo.h boards bad not been
undertaking to act as Boards of Super
"I understand," said Mr. Scheil, "that
the eight have been meeting in a bedroom
on Fulton street, and h*-ve appointed one
of their number Mayor."
"We claim that- we acted a* a board
>intil the Mayor called upon the Chief of
I'olice. wno forcibly ejected us," said
"We claim we entered into possession
of the chambers peacefully," said Mr.
"The matter is disputed," .-aid Justice
Beatty. "We will have to refer It. We
have no time to hear the discussion."
The Chief Justice appointed Niles
Searls to hear the testimony, and the old
gentleman took hi seat.
After the petition was read Auditor
Broderick was called by Mr. McEnerney.
He told of the visit paid to his oifice by
Britt and Haskins, and the delivery of
their alleged tax levy to hire.
Britt '.old ol the meetings of the old
board and the ejectment from the cham
bers. In speaking of the occupancy of
Vie chambers by the new board he said he
noticed several gentlemen occupying seats
whom he had not met as Supervisors. He
heard names called by the Mayor that
were not familiar to him as Supervisors.
Britt then told of the ejectment from
the committee-rooms, the fixing of the
alleged tax lew in the corridor, his selec
tion to act as Mayor ami the meetings in
the Fulton House. Allot his testimony
was calculate.! to show tnat the old board
continued to act a- a board after the judg
ment of court removing them.
Robert P. Barton, the ex-City Hall
janitor, who was selected by tbe old
board to act as clerk, was next called.
He testified to the correctness of the
minutes i c kept and amused tiie crowd
by declaring, "I am the clerk of the
Board of Supervisors elected by the peo
"Who swore you in as clerk of the Board
of Supervisors? ' asked Attorney Baggett.
"I have not been sworn in," answered
"Have you taken any oath or given any
bomi '.'"
"No. but I euess I bave ten days to file
them," replied Barton.
At this stage of the proceedings Thomas
V. Cator insisted on placing intervenor
Greenberg on the stand. When Mr. Bag
gett asked him who got him to intervene
he said: "I was informed by the Fire
Commissioners that I would have to in
tervene to get my money. I received a tele
phone message to that effect from Georg**
Maxwell, secretary of the commission. I
went out to the Commissioners' rooms and
Mr. Maxwell introduced me to Mr. i_ator,
who he said wa*- the attorney in the
case. Mr. Cator then said he heard that
I wanted to find out if my contracts with
the city were legal. I let him attend to
the matter."
Clerk John A. Russell was the next
witness. Mr. McEnerney objected to the
introduction of th** minute- of the new
boar I, but they ■ were introduced, never
Mr. Russ?ll then told of the appoint
ment of the new bo ird and of it- meet
ings. He recognized it as the only legal
Board of Supervisors.
I>tore an adjournment was taken Mr.
McEnerney secured an admission from
Supervisor Ashton that he lives in the
i. eventh Ward, although appointed to
represent the First. Barry testified th it
he lived in the Twelfth." although ap
pointed to represent the Third.
Fdrtnxann admitted tnat he resides in
the Twelfth, but was appointed to repre

in the Sixtn. but wa«< appointed to repre
sent the Fourth. Biggy admitted he re

to represent the Ninth. Dresbscb said

| Resigns From the Chair of
the Health and Police
'The Board of Supervisors Holds
Two Quite Interesting:
i Positions Are Abolished in the In
terest of Economical City
The Board of Supervisors went on
with its wort yesterday just as though
an "ousted eight" was not striving in the
Supreme Court to regain positions from
whicn .Jud_.e Wallace had ousted '.hem for
disobeying the law. The board met in
the afternoon with Mayor Phelan in the
chair and proceeded at once to discuss the
committees as prepared by Mayor Jhelan.
Supervisor Barry objected to tho con
sidetation of the matter on the ground
that he could not be well considered as a
member, inasmuch as his resignation had
been in the hands of the Mayor lor a
In spite of his objections the committees
as printed in The Call were ratified.
A resolution calling for more energetic
work in finishing the roof of the hall was
The resolution ricited that inasmuch as
the rainy season was approaching and
valuable public documents were in danger
through the unfinished condition of the
root it was imperative that the structure
should be completed at the earliest pos
sible moment.
The Committee on Public Buildings
recommended that Bateman Bros., the
contractors for the Hall of Justice, shall
be given thirty days' intension of time on
the job, and the board voted to approve
the mutter.
While tiie board was in session the
members were served with subpenas to
appear oefore the Supreme Court to-day
in the suit for a writ, of mandate brought
by the ousted board to compel Auditor
Broderick to recognize its tax levy.
An adjournment was then takeu until 8
o'clock in the evening, at which lime the
full board assembled. Dr. Rottanzi arose
to a question of personal privilege and
staled that he desired to resign the chair
manship of the C imtnittee on Health and
Police, to which lie nad been appointed by
Mayor Phelan. He stated that as chair
man of the Ftuanci! Committee of the old
board he understood the exact state of
affairs, and that if deficits were to occur
he did not want to be a party to them.
Supervisor Barry objected to changes,
and Supervisor Etottanzi in reply scorciiea
the Mayor and Dr. Clinton for advising
the board to go slow in the matter of fix"
ing water rates. He also strongly criti
cized Judge Wallace for his decision in the
matter. HOB
ills resignation was accepted, and the
chairmansnip of the Committee on Health
and Police will be filled later.
Mayor Pnelan's veto of the appo nt
men.of Joseph Dunne as Assistant Pros
ecuting Attorney was sustained, and on
motion of Stu ervisor Clinton the office of
Fisn and Game Warden of the cily and
county was abolished.
A resolution was adopted warning the
heads ot a.i departments that they must
live within their appropriations. . .
J. J. Sullivan, the expert of the Street
Committee, was dropped from the salary
roll of the city.
Supervisor Barry stated that he would
not press his resignation until after the
Supreme Court hud rendered its decision,
but that he had not changed his mind
aDout the ultimate result.
The Mayor submitted figures to show
that if the departments were economic
ally conducted there would be no deficit
at the end of the year.
On the recommendation of the Street
Committee a resolution was passed order
ing the immediate paving of the crossing
oi O'Farrell and Stockton streets.
