SAY FUR FLEW AT COUNCIL MEET Monotony Fractured by Ginger and Itepartee.—Treasurer Graves Got Mad. j Fur and sparks, interspersed with ! repartee and courteous retort, en ' livened the council meeting last Thr.se present felt the joy of Mv ing, i-nd the man who missed it has something to be sorry for. Graves Got Mad. , City Treasurer J. E. Graves was present, for the purpose of taking up a*»ta the council the question of payment of his deputy. Briefly, the case is this: Immediately after tak ing the oath of office Graves became ill and could not atend to his offi cial duties at a time when they were pressing. Five days elapsed, during j which ;he city hall saw nor heard nothing of him, so Ed Ferguson was sent to ask Graves what he intended ;to do about his office work. Graves | replied that he himself was too ill to attend to it, and suggested that a deputy be appointed, provided the council had not already done so. in i the meantime, the work was 'press '■ ing and Ellsworth Hollenbeck was . deputized to transact the duties at ' the city hall, where he was at the time employed in another capacity, lie went up to see Graves and the j latter said it would be all right, and | they would adjust the compensation! .between themselves. This arrange-j ■ ment continued throughout the I months of January and February, 1 Hollenbeck being paid for his serv ! ices during January at the rate of ;$1 per day. the same as the regular ■ salary attached to the office of city ; treasurer. : Last night, however, Graves ap peared and protesed against what jhe claimed to be the unlawful pay ment to Hollenbeck of his (Gravis) salary for the month of January. He stated to the council that as an officer elected by the people he churned the right to designate and fix the compensation of his own den-' „ „ i > councilman Case undertook, in a spirit of friendly mediation, to ex-; plffler the si\i>ation to Treasur r , are of success. As the matter was ! becoming uncomfortably acute; 1 I Councilman Belser moved *i ,t. G*a*ea be ,iaiti his salary for Jan,' '' :«»?, which motion was carried. Where Docs "Holly ' Get Off The quest'en of the deputy's g?J ary for February is still in statu' :<;o. Hollenbeck has been working : 1 ' r the city during fha month Bast, I but just who is to pay him is not clear. Graves has removed the treas- I urer's books from the city hall and placed them in the custody of Guy ' Whitson, who is being instructed as ,to how they should be kept by Coun cilman Frank Case. Unless" Graves j decides to pay Hollenbeck for the' j month of February, the latter will I jbe out of luck. As ft is, the city is : i obliged to pay the treasurer's salary ! twice for January. Granted Liquor Licenses. ! With the exception of Mr. Belser the council voted "Yes" to the ques | tor of granting liquor licenses to IJ. M. Duffy and the Wenatehee Liq-1 I uor and Tobacco Co. As to G. N.s Closet. The ancient and threadbare ques-, j tion of the Depot Water Closet was again handed about, and the Health iCr mmitfee instructed to see Agen r I'jper and ascertain, if possible, just, what the company's intentions are as tro a new depot; and that if it should find that none is to be built this • at that the company be denied the right to erect the temporary water, closet, as previously arranged for.
