"There is no foundation for all this
talk," the mayor said. "The fact is
that no officer or employe of the city
is authorized to sell city property,
without first having an ordinance
passed by the council. This is the
law, but that law has been violated as
long as I have known anything of city

For instance, if there is $2 worth of
junk on hand in some department. It
would be utter folly to go through the
form of drafting and passing an ordin
