ANOTHER MOVE BY '
EXECUTIVE TO BUILD
POLITICAL MAGHIHE!
Governor Sidney J. Catts has de- !
manded the resignations of Chas. V. ;
Burgman and Dr. L. 13. Bouchelle, two I
of the members of the board of coun-i
ty commisi-ioners of Volusia county. !
For soma time reports have been I
current that the Cattites would get the '
"scalps" of Burgman and Bouchelle,
thus leaving room for the appointment
of successors of the Catts faith and
thus have control of the board of coun
ty commissioners.
It is for the alleged connection with
the Turnbull association that Governor
t Catts demanded the resignations of
Burgman and Bouchelle. It seems
when 'Chas. Kost was getting ready
to form the Turnbull association he
asked Messrs. Burgman and Bouchelle
to sign the application for the charter.
They did m merely as a matter of ac
commodation to Mr. Kost and never
had any farther connection with the
club. In fact that club has never
held a meeting to complete the organ
ization. Records and proofs have been
submitted to the governor showing
that the two commissioners had no
connection with the asociation but
notwithstanding this, te chief execut:
ive has demanded the resignations.
Both Dr. Bouchelle and Mr. Burg
man have declined to resign. Dr. Bou
chelle answered the governor as fol
lows: "Your litter of April 6, 1917. receiv
ed. So far as trouble and publicity
are concerned because of any alleged
connection of my part with the Turn
bull Bay asstociation. I court and wel
come the fullest publicity. I was nom
inated fur county commissioner of
District No. 5, not District No. 4. as
you state in your letter in the Demo
cratic primary of June. 1916.
"In the November election my ene
mies again endeavored to bring about
my defeat through an independent can
didate, but I was elected by a substan
tial majority.
"I have done no wrong either legally
or morally so far as my connection
. with the Turnbull Bay association is
concerned; the record in your hands
Proves my statement to be true.
"It has been currently reported for
sometime that I was to be removed
to give room for a political favorite of
those opposed to me; I am still hope
ful that an executive order of you
may not accomplish what my oppo
nents are unable to do before the peo
ple. "I must therefore respectfully do-:
cline to resign, and await your fur
ther advices in the matter."
Mr. Burgman replied to the governor
today a3 fololws:
"Responsive to yours of the 6th,
inst., requesting that I tender to you
my resignation as County Commissiou
er of tho Fourth Commissioners Dis
trict of Volusia county received. Re
bonding to same beg to submit for
Tour consideration the follwing:
"la my letter to you of March 20th,
last, I made to you full statement of
my alleged connection with alleged
Turnbull Bay association. That state

MASS MEETING TO
PROTEST AGAINST
FLAGLER COUNTY
A mass meeting will be held at 7:30
tonight at the Casino Burgoyne for the
purpose of discussing the proposed
taking of several thousand acres of the
north part of Volusia county in order
to form part of a new county which
would also include a portion of Put
nam and St. John's counties as well.
This proposition is now before the
state legislature and has been before
the public for the past week. It has
been much discussed in general on the
streets, but no meeting of citizens will
have been held until tonight. As Vo
lusia county people are very much
against having a slice of county
which has an assessed value
of $500,000. taken away from them,
the meeting should be of interest to all
Daytona people.
