Mayor Blankenbtirg has answered In ft
formal statement the assertions emanit
Ing from machine source" that responsi
bility for Idleness of approximated $11.
COO.Crt) of city funds that -mould be under
contract to give irk to the city's un
employed restr, with the heads of de
partments In the Administration
The Mavor declare-) that the bulk nf thU
Jnonrv that now lies unexpended In the
City Treaury has been rendered virtual
ly inaccessible to constructive work at
the present time because of the hindrances
to lis proper epondlturo enmeshed about
It by the Organization Councils
Tho desire of Councils to retain absolute
control ocer the expenditure of loan
moneys has tied up the bulk of the funds
to isuch an extent that authorization of
Councils Is necessary to almost every
outlay, the Mayor shows. That "au
thorization" has In most cases been con
sistently withhold.
The figures purporting to show the re
Bponslbilley of the Mayor and his dlrec-
tors came originally from the ofllce of the
City Controller. They were Included as
BUpplementais material In a reply from
City Solicitor Hyan to the Mayor when
the Mayor requested nn opinion on the
feasibility on the early start of construc
tion of projects included In the proposed
811,300.000 loan.
Finally they were used In an oratorical
eutburst In Councils by John P. Connelly,
organization chairman of the Finance
Committee of Councils.
Analyzing the specific statements In
cluded In the City Solicitor's opinion,
3Iaor Biankenburg shows that tho ldln
money In the city treasury falls under
one of the four following clashes:
Money that has been improvident!)'
borrowed under previ-m administrations
for specific purposes for which it can
Mot at the prtsent time be used, such
as $7s.".000 for a library.
Money which could not be used until
after the execution of agreements Involv
ing long negotiations, such as the JlW,
COO for the removing of grade crossings
In the southern part of th city, and tho
;00.0jO for the opening of streets under
the Richmond branch of the rhlladclphla
and Reading Railway.
An Item cited b the City Solicitor of
8154,033.01 for Improx'ement of the Park
way, the Mayor points out, could not be
put under contract until the city ncqulred
certain properties Those properties havo
since been acquired and are being de
molished by contractors and the amount
of the funds for paving the Included
Btreets may not be put under contract
at this season of the year.
Other Htaiements of the Mayor contra
dicting the assertions of the City Solicitor
Included the following items:
Instead of 37,0G2.11, available for repairs
to streets not occupied by the Transit
Company as aserted by tho City Solicitor,
the Mayor sa.s that under five different
Items onlv $S1.V was available September
3. and from that amount $32,000 was used
In September.
From 1113 131 23 for country roads and
repairing trets. the Mayor contends that
$2fl0,r0i) is tied up by Councils pending
further legislation, nnd that the remain
der is being advertised and will he under
contract before the nd of the year.
Instead of a balance of KX,000 for im
proving country roads, the Mayor asserts
that the balance existing at present Is
13730 The remainder has been put under
The J2J1.0S6.5S cited as for the improve
ment of the West Philadelphia water sup
ply, the Mayor declares to be an error.
3Ir says that from ISio.nrfl originally ap
propriated a balance of only I27,02.1S re
mains not under contract.
In conclusion. Mayor Rlankenburg says:
"If, as I presume Is the case, tho Con
troller simply furnished a copy or tran
script from his monthly statement, he is
not to blame for the use which has been
made of hii material The motives of the
Councllmpn who vouched for the state
ments Is too well known In the commu
nity to require comment. Whether the
Cit) Solicitor wrote in Ignoranco of facts
which it would f-eem that he must have
known, or deliberately chose to Ignore
those facts. Is a question to whbti he
alone can give the answer "
Discussing the Mayor's statement. City
Solicitor Ryan said:
"Yes, I will later make a detailed reply
to the Ma)or's statement. He requested
m to advise htm as to a method devised
l) him of accelerating a loan for $11,300,
000 which is yet to be voted upon and
Ilia special reason for requiring such ac.
tlon by me ws.s. he said, to give work to
tho unemployed. Tie also asked If I
could not approve of the plan ho outlined,
that I would suggest lawful means to ac
complish the purpose; nainel), the relief
of the unemployed.
"Any one with a shade of familiarity
with city finances and the negotiation and
lisuance of loans must have Known (hat
what he proposed to do was entlrel) un
lawful, and I so wrote him, and suggested
that he make use of the money now in
hand, and pointed out quite a number of
Items that could be used. My authority
fur the figures is the fiscal officer of the
city the City Controller and his figures
iire correct.

makes no denial tluit there is now law

Voters Asked to Elect Legislative
Candidates Who Can Bo Trusted.
Bishop Joseph F. Berry, of this city,

rent number of the Methodist Times,
Bishop Berry says In part:
"I hope the chief issue In the pending
elections In the State of Pennsylvania
may be kept clearly in view. The thing
that should chiefly concern every Christ
ian voter Is: 'What kind of n man will
represent me In the State Senate and
Assembly?' The question of local option
and possibly of State-wldo prohibition will
be brought forwnrd In the Legislature,
and the Importance nf electing reliable
tempemnco men to that body must be
"The candidates for Governor on both
the Republican and Democratic-Washington
ticketH have committed themselves in
tho most emphatic terms to advanced
temperance legislation, so that which
ever Is elected we will have n Governor
who has publicly pledged himself to sign
any bill which the temperance forces put
through. The big task brforo us Is to
elect a Legislature which will surely pass
the necessary bills."
