Tmt TRIBUNE stated yesterday that it
did not think the error made by the city
attorney or city clerk in not having tickets
at the late elections printed according to
the amended law, would set aside the will l
of the people expressed at the ballot box. 1
City Attorney Fitch, whose duty it should
have been to see that the tickets were
printed according to law, says ,‘There’s no
substantial error.” But is uncertain and
there might be a “substantial error."
Mayor Horr takes the right view of it. He
“If there is any doubt about the validity
of the election I shall resign, the resigna
tion to take effect on January 12, and I
shall advise the councilmen who were not
re—elected to do the same. My recommen
dation to the council will be to choose in
our places those who have been elected by
the people. The people have had a fair
and honest election, and I would think
very little ofa man who would hold his of
lice on a technicality. As I have said, we
can appoint the men who have been en
dorsed by the people, and then they will
hold by two titles.”
This plan would legalize the new city
council in case a contest was made relative
to the ballots and the election set aside.
The old council would hold over, and the
present mayor and certain councilmen. in
selecting their successors, would make the
old become the new, just as the people in
tended il: the other day at the polls.

While much discussion is centering on
the city government, the fire department
must not be overlooked. The firemen
should be encouraged to prolicrency by re
ceiving recognition both from the city
council and the people. How many fires
are checked by a few citizens who volun
teer to protect the property of the public
and who are compelled to use personal
funds for necessaries which should be fur
nished out of the public treasury. The
firemen need rubber suits; they need
better lire apparatus, better accommoda
tions and sleeping apartments at the head
quarters for such as are without homes, so
that they can be on hand the instant ah
alarm is sounded.
In short, they should be compensated
for thelr services. Where possible, let
those whose property is saved bear a por
tion of the expense. The firemen not only
suffered great hardship on the cold, rainy
night when the steamer Eastern Oregon
burned, but many of them were at a per
sonal loss in the destruction of their gar
ments. The Oregon Improvement Com
pany ought to have courtesy enough to do
something for the firemen. and the city is
expected to do its share. ’
THE Seattle Telegraph of Monday has a
criticism of Hon. Eugene T.Wilson securing

not be extended, so far as the band is
concerned. .

How a Civil Engineer Was
T reated‘vby our City Council.
The Sewer Plans Bought for Fif
teen Hundred Dollars said
to be Worthless.
CHICAGO, Dec. 10, 1891.
25 | Editor Tribune:
I notice in THE TRIBUNE of December
sth, a letter from Mr. Whitham relating to
the sewer plans recently drepared for your
city by Mr. Camp, and I desire to make a
statement of my experience With the pres
sent city council with regard to plans for
their proposed sewerage.
Last year, while I was in your city en
‘ gaged by the Olympia Water Works Com
; pany as their engineer, I was requested by
‘ the committee of the council, having the
matter in charge, to make them a proposi
tion for plans for sewers; the committee
was composed of Messrs. O’Brien, Murphy,
and one other whom I can not at this mo‘
ment name. I had given the matter con
siderable study, in connection with the
water works, and made them a proposition
to prepare complete plans and specifica
tions and present a report} on the subject
for the sum of $700; this proposition was
reported favorably to the council, and
August 6, 1890 the proposition was acw
cepted by the council. One provision of
my proposition was that the city ‘
should supply me with certain data. I
was to have the plans completed in time
for the beginning of work in the spring.
I left Olympia in the latter part of August,
and the committee promised to send me
the data necessary immediately but they
failed to do so until early in becember.
Upon the receipt of the information de
sired, I immediately began preparation of
the plans, and had them substantially
completed when, replying to my request
for certain additional facts, which had
been omitted in their previous communi
cation, the council notified me through
their attorney, “that according toa pro
vision of the charter in force at'the time of
my proposition, the city was not bound by
any contract unless the same was author
ized by ordinance and signed by the clerk
or other person in behal of the city, duly
authorized; that I consequently had no
contract with the city, and the present
city council did not deem‘it advisable nor
eigaedient to make one at that time, con
si ering the stringency of the times.” The
above is a quotation from a letter from the
city attorney, under date of February 4th,
1891;, ~
When I received this letter I had put
two months labor on the plans, and ad
them nearly completed, and immediately
wrote to the members of the committee, to
whom the proposition had been made, and
also to the members of the .council, calling
their attention to the injustice of the pro
ceeding and asking for a reconsideration of
their conclusions. In writing to them, to
prevent any possible impression that 1
might have as ed more than the work was
worth. I called their attention to the fact
that the cities of Victoria and Vancouver
had uite recently paid Mr. Herring, of
Nequork, $1,500 for- similar work. I not
only did not succeed in securing the in—
structions to complete this work, but not
one member of the council had the cour—
tesy to reply to my letter in any way. I
notice by the paper that Mr. Murphy, who
was one of the committee which requested
a proposition from me and who voted for
its acceptance, is now the chairman of the
committee which has paid Mr. Camp $1,500
for lans.
I llave not troubled the public with my
‘ experience with your council before, but in
connection with the recent letter of Mr.
Whitham it has seemed to me that In ex
perience might prove interesting. I liave
never heard any doubt expressed as to my
ability to hand e the sewerage matter in
telligently, and think your people are
probably tpretty well satisfied from results
‘ achieve or your Wuter‘Works Company,
, that as a hydraulic engineer I know some
thing about mv business. I have not had
the pleasure of seeing the plans presented
by Mr. Camp for the work. but I lave read
extracts from his report published in our
aper, and also those given in Mr. “)7’hit—
Ham’s letter, and should deem it a
most unfortunate thing if the city put in
such a reservoir a Mr. Camp contemplates.
The report on the sewerage system of
San Diego. from which extracts are given
in your paper, is signed by one of the fore
most hydraulic engineers of the Pacific
Coast, Mr. James D. Schuyler. Such a
reservoir is radically wrong in principle
and something which is bound to be offen
sive and an expensive public nuisance.
While I am not in the habit of criticising
the professional work OK others, I am un
fortunate enough to own some real estate
in your city, and thinkl have reason to
object to any such thing being foisted upon
the community, on this ground.
Yours Trnlv,
W. W. Cuarrs.
