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,

.Bt of the Council iu paying tliU ditu.nalchargcs wererre8ontea n-aiust

claim that he holds it subject to my
oruer as Uonti oiler, to to expended

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
