DICKERING FOR TIIE JOBS Mayor and Councilmen in Give and Take Argument. CONCESSIONS BY OTHER SAY BOTH "Repabllraa Ask Ton Mark." De clares Daaltaaa, "bet I Will Have to Olve Them ftonaetfclas;' Cffafereaee Held. On one tide Is Mayor Dahlman battling for his "boys" and on the other are the six republican member of the city coun cil contending for the displacement of some of these men in appointive city posi tions. Mayor Dahlman concedes that he will have to relinquish aom members of his cabinet, but aays that the republicans ask for more than they can ever hope to get. and the republican say that the mayor will have to g)ve them a more even show or get nothing. In the meantime the three "traitor" dem ocratic councilmen Bmefcer, Johnson and Sheldon have naught to do with the mayor and are standing with the republicans against the confirmation of practically solid democratic list of appointeea. The republicans and the "traitors" had several conference separately and together Sunday, and Monday morning the repub licans called on the mayor and held a long seance with Mm. At the close of this ses sion the republicans refused to say any thing, excepting President Burmester, who remained behind for a final word with the executive. That an understanding will be reached before tonight's council meeting was the opinion vouchsafed by the presi dent, and this Is the view held by the mayor. 'The republicans ask for too much, but I will have to give them something," said the mayor. "We canvassed the situation thoroughly, but came to no decision. We will hold more conferences, and I think we ca.n get together on most of the officers. The democrats have not been to see me, though they are Just as welcome as the republicans. I have Invited neither. I understand that City Engineer Craig Intends to appoint several democrats In his office, but as long as they are competent It makes little difference What may be their political beliefs."
