At an adjourned meeting of the Common Council hc!d Thursday even ing, Slurch -Cth, tho charges against Michael Jeflers, Esq., Comptroller wero called for and read by tho Clerk; aflor which J. 13. Dillingham, Esrp, as counsel for the defendant filed tho following answer of tho Comptroller which was read : To llie L'oncrulk, the JLtfor and the Common Coiuuil of tie City of Lad Smjlrauc : GtMLEMK.v: I havo been served with a copy of charges which wero pre sented against me by 1). W. C. tiago, Es., at a recent meeting of tho Couu t il, iu which I am charged with ofli cial misconduct and iucllicioncy as Controller, and also wjih a notice that an answer to tho charges w as to be made by mo on the il'Jth inst. Tor w hat end I' am arraigned and called upon to answer, unless to grati iy private maiice, I cannot say. If it bo claimed that I am to account to the Council for my ollicial conduct, and that at their pleasure I may bo removed, either with or w ithout cause, my answer is an cmphatical denial of tho right of tho Couucil to hear and determino any such question. I am only accountable to tho samo tribunal as yoursclvos, to tho people and the laws. If 1 havo been guitly of offi cial misconduct, I freely admit that I am subject to indictment and trial and conviction, beforo a competent tribu u il. But tho question must bo tried by a jury and in a proper court. I might with as much propriety call upou you to answer before me for your ollicial couduct, as for you to call upon mo for that purposo. 'hen the section in tho charter under w hich it was supposed Mr. CJago presented these charges, was passed, tho con troller was an elective officer, and therefore not within its frovisions ; when by a subsjqueut act tho office was to bo filled by appointment, tho 8imo act expressly limits tho term of tho oIRco to thrco years, and no ap pointment can bo again made until tho three years expires. It was tho iutention of tho act to mako tho con troller, in tho performance of his du ties, entirely independent of the Council ho is not subject to their di rections except as they may ly Ordi nance prescribe his duties, 'in relation to tho finances and accounts of said city." His duties aro prescribed by law, and except in regard to duties prescribed by ordinance us aforesaid, ho is as independent of tho Council u) is the Mayor or Keeorder, and it is necessary aud proper that this hhould o so to enable him to properly per form tho duties of his otlice ; it is his duty to refuse to obey tho directions of tho Council, should any bo given, to sigD bonds or warrants which may be unauthorized, and this is strictly in accordance with tho position of tho controller in most cities. I'ut while thus vindicating the in dependence of the of lice, which for .lhe time being is vested in me, I say to you, gentlemen, that I am willing nt all times aud places, (as all public officers bhould be) to answer a9 to my j oflicial conduct; and as tho charges j ubovo alluded to havo been published, I ask as an act of justico to mo that jny answer should also bo published. This answer 1 make, not to you alone,, but to the public, for, as I havo above denied your authority to arraigu nie, ho do I still insist, that tho charges tlomaud of mo no answer, except to iho citizens of East Saginaw, and to them through you I eay Fir id I deny that 1,-as Controller und Treasurer of tho Board -of Cem utry Commissioners, paid out in ItCa lbo !)-, or any other tsum whatever, without tho authority of saiJU Board. Sccondl deny that I as Controller and as a member of tho Board of Cemotry Commishiuners without or ganizing the Board, and in conjunc tion with one of tho Come try commis sioners ulone, expended in 1G" more lhau $-"JlM) in improving tho Cemetry grounds, without authority from or consent of tho Common Council. I admit that there was expended by the H'oard of Cemttry Commissioners in 185") a greater sum for tho improvc , jnent of the cemetry than C'.'JOU, but the members of tho Council were knowing of tho expenditure and ns-K-nted to it. The expenditure was jibfvjlutoly necessary, as all conceded, Mid it Is not claimed but what all the jiioney was judiciously expended. All tho vouchers havo been examined by your comiuilteo and found correct. Tho-ordinaneo defining the duties of 1 ho Cemetry Commissioners requires ihcm t causo the htruoU to bo graded nnd other improvement made. In utoal of being guilty of doing wrong, in expending the sum we have, I have no doubt but the omibtion to da m, would have given just cause of censure. believe that tho Conictry Comniis- inncm have the right to expend under 1 lie charter and ordinaueo all tho money recelvod from tho Bale of lots nud $300 besides, if in the treasury, to tho credit of tho Cemetry fund. Third As to tho charge that 1 did not pay over tho 5 IG'J.OJ to tho city i reasuror imui o.ue -u u uu i oy u, 5 mucil, 1 answer, Hint sootum 17 of title 3, makes the controller treasurer . - . 1 ..... I . - 1 .... I 1 1 . if tli Board. It is uowhc-ie made ). ii duly to pay tho money to tho city treasurer. On the coutiarv, by law, Jho coiitivlh.r is the pioper tudtodian cf all tho moneys belonging to the Cemetry fund try fund. I did comply with tho at to adjournment, the following ad .Bt of the Council iu paying tliU ditu.nalchargcs wererre8ontea n-aiust y to tho city treasurer, but I ! . . , . rtque mnnnv claim that he holds it subject to my oruer as Uonti oiler, to to expended by tho Board of Cemetry Commis- Zi . x - ,,,-,i.io,uuuHg u6 m the Cemetry grounds, I say the Board li n a li i it eli iiifvt.il n ti v Hint tif linl am. ci i i J 1 i i one of tho streets, not deemed neces sary, CO lots havo been added to tho Cemetry to tho valuo of $1S0. It U submitted that by this, neither tho Board nor tho controller have dono any act worthy of censuro. Fifth As to speculating in city orders, I havo bought no city orders except of Mr. Talbot, paying full market rates for them, buying them because Mr. Talbot said ho "had tried elsowhere to sell them and could not, and that it was necessary for liim to sell them and get tho money to enable him to go on with his work, and at his urgent request, and in order that the work might proceed, I purchasod the orders. But I claim that I am at liberty to buy orders, tho same as any other citizen, using ' my own monoy for that purposo. 1 know that at leabt ono olfiecr and one Alderman of tho city have purchased or speculated (as it has been termed) in city orders, and I am not aware that any charges havo been made through tho Council against them. I did not, nor do I now, deem my action in buying the orders from Mr. Talbot wrong ; it cer tainly did not, nor could it any way prejudice tho interests of tho city. Sixth As to having now orders issuod, the clerk has in ono instanco, taken from mo largo orders and given mo smaller ones, in lieu thereof on tho samo fund. It was bocauso there was some money in the treasury, to the credit of this fund, but not enough to pay thcvwholo order. I surrender ed the largo orders and took smallor ones to the same amount and on tho same fund, and thcro has nover Teen objections made by tho Council to dividing orders in this manner ; I deny thrt this is oflicial misconduct. Seventh As to tho charge of specu lating out of tho City in buying sand, 1 deny tho charge. I havo not, nor never had ono dollar interest in tho sand dredged or to bo dredged from tho Sajrinaw river. Jlinhth As to tho chafgo that while acting as 6uch controller 1 agreed with tho late city treasurer to pay a claim he owed the city, and tho other mat ters in such chargo stated, I deny them as stated. I did buy a lot as ugent for another person from Mr. Leidlein, and he consented that if I would pay a certain amount to the city ho would give credit for itin trade. I had a conversation with the finance committoe, and other oflicors of the city in regard to taking city orders in payment of tho claim held by Leid lein against tho . person for whom I was agent, and it was paid Mr; Leid lein and credited on his account with tho city, but this purchase was not made by mo as controller, nor was the city iu any manner interested in it, except in getting tboir pay from Mr. Leidlein sooner than they otherwise would havo dono. I deny that my action in relation to this matter was oflicial misconduct. Xinth As to tho chargo of unfaith ful performance of duty in not open ing an account with each street of highway moneys, , I reply that it is impracticable, and 1 understood it to bo so conceded by tho Council. Tho ordinance does riot require it nor the charter. Therefore it is not part of my duty. But I am and have been at nil times willing to nccommodato tho Council, and will open such an account if they deem it necessary or desirable. l'espectfullv submitted, M. JKFFEllS, Comptroller. After tho answer was read, Aid. Gago tho presenter and prosecutor, and Judge, proceeded to sum up tho caso. No person was called upon to mako any statement in regard to tho charges, 6avo ono, and his statement had no bearing upon the questions at issue; tho argument of tho Alderman was of that impudent, overbearing style, peculiar to himself, abounding in misstatements invectivo aud falso coloring, and when any attempt was mado to correct him by the Controller or his counsel they wero' promptly suppressed by tho tool of tho Alder man, tho Mayor. After occupying nearly tho entire session some 3 hours, Wm. L. "Webber Esq., Counsel for the Controller, was graciously granted as a matter of courtesy, the priilego of tho floor for ono hour to prosent his views upon tho caso. The argu ment of Mr. Webber was clear concise and to tho point, showing conclusively that the action taken by the council iu the proceedings was thout pre cedent in proceedings at law or in tho action of parlimentary bodies. His argument would have earned conviction to tho minds of any set of men who had not already prejudgod tho caso and pledged themselves to remove tho Controller with or without cause. After tho remarks of Mr. Webber Aid. Collins offered tho fol lowing resolution, which was laid upon tho table by a strict party voto 5 to 4. " By Aid. Colons: Jtesoked, That a committeo bo nppointod consisting of Aid. Doughty and Allardt to inves tigate tho charges mado against tho Comptroller with power to scud for persons nnd papers, and who shall hear testimony in his dofenco and who shall report at tho next meeting of the Council, tho evidence taken for its consideration." Aid. Collins then offered the fol owing resolution, which was deelarod ' o lost by tho samo voto. " By Aid. Coluxs : liesolrtd, That referred to tho tho wholo matter bo Citv Attorney for his legal opinion as i . . . t ..v . ... , to wiiether ti.o Uouncii nave the right to try tho Comptroller on the charges preferred, and to report thereon as soon ns practicable." An adjournment was then haduntil t,,e nrXt 11 ' the asscmbl the next morning at 9 o'clock. On ing of tho Council pursu. j Controller, designed mainly to effect mo election or Air. Daemon, uemo j cratio candidate for. City Treasurer. "It is further charged against MieUaelJeffew, Esq., Comptroller of rafct e . 'that he wai guilty of I D. . . .. . ; official misconauct xn this, to wit: In City Treasurer, over twelve hundred dollars of city orders, which have claimed to havo been paid by said Ircasurer. And also in this, to-wit : In using or carelessly losing said orders, so that they cannot be produced, to enable tho Finance Conimittoo to settlo with said Treasurer; and in tho absenco of any record of said orders, kept by said Treasurer or said comptroller, and for the want of a sulhciout cancellation thereof, subjecting tho city to a liabil ity of twico paying tho samo. And it is also further chartrod. he, said Jeirers, as city comptroller, was guilty of unfaithful and insufficient performance of tho duties of his oflico, in this, to-wit : That ho did not, until after a delay of more than six mouths, open tho proper books, showing tho condition of the city affairs and finances nor lias ho to this tune mado up a balanco sheet, whereas ono should be made up monthly or quarterly." In regard to this order business, thero is hardly a doubt that tho can celled orders wero stolen from the oflico of tho Controller for tho ex press purpose of influencing prejudico against him, and also to work against the election of tho Treasurer ; facts have sinco transpirod which loavo scarcely a doubt that such is tho fact. Tho forenoon session, liko that of provious evening,- was almost exclur sivcly occupiod by tho honest?) alder man from tho 3d. Previous to tho adjournment Aid. Doughty asked that inasmuch as tho question as t( wheth er tho Common Council had jurisdic tion in the caso had been raised and other proceedings in connection with tho ca60 had been deniod, tho mat ter bo referred to tho City Attorney for his legal opinion thereon, and that tho council adjourn until 7 o'clock in tho evening, for the purposo of giv ing the Attorney time to preparo said opinion. This was denied, but so modified as to allow tho City Attor ney to render his opinion at - o'clock. At 1-i o'clock tho Council adjourned to meet at 2 o'clock. On the ro-as-sembling of tho Council a communica tion was received from tho City Attor ney stating that it was impossible for him to give an opinion on the caso within the time allowed him. Aid. Collins moved that tho Council ad journ until 7 o'clock to givo tho City Attorney timo to report his opinion. This was refused. AfHcr exhausting all efforts to obtain this opinion tho Controller submittol tho following To the Jlonoralle, the 2ajor and Com mon Council of the Citij of Fast Sag inaw. Gentlesikj?: Charges having been preferred against mo, and all being denied by me, I rcspoctfully ask that a timo and place may bo lixed when and where evidenco may bo taken in tho usual manner under the sanction of an oath ns to said charges. I claim as a right that tho evidenco of fered in support of tho charges bo undor oath, and I am willing and anxious to havo tho opportunity to meet the samo with evidenco iu de fense. This claim I make, not waiv ing tho jurisdictional question hereto fore raised by me. MICHAEL JEFFEIiS. Which was promptly laid on tho ta blo by a strict party roto. After all efforts on the part of tho attorney of tho Controller to havo both parties in troduce evidenco or to proceed 4with tho investigation had failed, Mr. Dil lingham, counsel for tho Controller, commenced an argument showing the unwarranted manner in which tho proceedings had bcon conducted', and as the printed proceedings of tho Common Council 6tato "transgressing in his remarks tho bounds of-parlia-mcntary decorum, was procmptorily seated by his Honor, tho Mayor." Tho gag law was strictly enforcod, and the timo had come when the last act in tho farco was about to take place, viz t The reading of the reso lution oxpolling the Controller which resolution had been proparod bofore the investigation commenced. During the progress of tho affair the Con troller introduced evidenco entiroly exhonerating himsolf from tho charges preferred, and Mr. Webber asked that all tho testimony or statements be re duced to writing, and stated that if this was refused it would bo chargod that they dare not hoar the testimo ny on which thoy uctod,' appoar, lest tho fact that they acted with out proof should be apparent; but all was ignored, the removal of tho Con troller was a foregone conclusion, his caso had been prejudged in a Itepub lican caucus and tho pledges thero mado must bo carried out, and they woro ; tho vote standing 4 to 4t the Mayor giving the casting vote, as fol lows: Aya Alderman Allardt Doitzi n 1 7 A 1,1. b ... ,v "i ll!
