Within less than an hour after he had received his commission as Third Recorder from the City Commission- di ers, Thomas P. Goff, who succeeded PE the late Peter Clement as Recorder. ut being appointed by ex-Governor San- CO ders, and who was subsequently oust ed from his position by Governor Hall and the office turned over to Guy E. Sadler, and upon whose resignation Benjamin W. Borne was appointed, and then John M. Duffy was elected m for the position, took charge of the office at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon. Although Mr. Duffy had instituted injunction proceedings in the civil court restraining Golf from taking charge, earlier in the day, when Goff presented his commission to Duffy in the latter's office, the office was quiet- p1 ly turned over to Goff. Duffy and his p, clerks gathered up their belongings ti and left the building. cc But few words were passed between sl Duly and Goe when they ipet in tj Duffy's ofce Monday afternoon, that H is, in so far as discussing the taking ce of the position was concerned. dl The first act of Reco, Jer Goff was bi - to select his office force. He appoint- w c. ed Samuel Boylan, a well-known young man of the Fifteenth ward, as his Ir chief clerk and then named Edward N to Grimes as Janitor of the court. Grimes n. served under Goff during his last reign. When asked about the injunction Ill proceedings Tuesday morning Record in er Goff said: "I did not know that such g. proceed'ngs had been brought until I on reached my home after 5 o'clock Mon- di e. day afternoon. I will fight the case. , rs Further than that I have nothing to 0o on say," h- concluded. ti John M. Duffy was appointed by a ly Governor Hall on November 13 to the a m position of Third Recorder to fill out n - the unexpired term of Benjamin W. P Borne, who had resigned. In his suit ti ..filed Monday, Duffy asserts that the fI city commissioners have no right to c name a recorder. It is set up that the General Asiem- r bly, at its session of 1912, passed what A purported to be a charter for the city n of New Orleans, under which the ex-l ecutive, legislative and administrative I powers of the city are verged and con- I solidated into a mayor and four com- < missioners, with authority to create i and establish recorders' courts, and I that Martin Behrman, under this new charter, was elected mayor, and W. B. Thompson, Edward E. Lafaye, Harold' W. Newman and A. G. Ricks were nam-' ed commissioners at an election held on Nov. 5. It is alleged that under this new charter the mayor and commissioners have appointed Thomas P. Goff as Third Recorder, and that this office, as established by Act No. 45 of 18W, the I old city charter, is lawfully held by a the petitioner, who is entitled to exer: lue the functions and duties of the I ome. It New Charter Attacked. It is averred that the laws and con stitation of the 8tate have reserved to I the electors of this city the right to I choose the recorder sad other officers who exercise the police power in whole or in part. and that the Legislature is without the power to withdraw .the right from the electors. It is sated Sthat the oflce of recorder is a Jadicial1 ofhe within the meannlrg oft the con-1 stitution, and must be' elected by the elector-themselves, n ud that portion of the new charter which alow theI mayor sad commlissmem to create I and ae recordem is ultra virus, II lea, nunll, voidnd a nc titltatoaal, a in eoatravemutio of artleles 31 sad Sl0 of the eotltutloa tof 1318. he rho lat itl so alldges that the new city charter, which is Act No. 13, of 151, is umoontitutional, becse it is a local and specis law for the cityl of New Orjme , and is It conflet with article of the osomtlttion, in that netis oft the Iantetion to apply for the pege of the aet shabould have bees advertised lr thirty day.

MAYOR BEHRMAN'S ADDRESS TO THE NEW COMMISSION COUNCIL 'Mayor Martin Behrman's first ad dress to the Commission Council evi denced keen appreciation on the part of the head of the new city administra. tion of the responsibilities the com mission is facing. He declared that if, as has been said, commission govern- if ment is to be conducted on the princi ples which control private business, the people of New Orleans are very fortunate in the personnel of the first commission. The mayor said: "Gentlemen:-As the survivor of the in regime that has just passed out, and all as the city's chief executive under the m new order of things, it is my pleasure no less than my duty to extend to each and all of you a hearty greeting. YouI wI . are now about to undertake the labori- to . ous and responsible task of putting w into motion the new system of govern I mert adopted by the people of New Orleans at the recent electiba, and for . the more efficient administration of I which they have selected you as their » . commissioners. 01 I N Limited Experiment. r "To a limited extent only does this - i change involve experiment, for the vastly greater part of the charter un i der which the city has been working - p for years, has fortunately been retain r ed Intet.
