THE LEGALITY OF
City Solicitor Expected to Affirm
That the Law Was Disregarded
and the Men Cannot be Sealed.
A Kie.il deal of lntete.it c-'ntcii'. In
thu opinion which City Solicitor Vos
bui g has been dliected by the common
Miuucll to piepate tegnrdlng the legal
ity of the leci'iil appoi tlonmunt of the
additional members which that branch
Is allowed under the present second
class city act.
Those who have spoken to the solici
tor upon the matter express the linn
belief that ho will decide that the ap
portionment was not made In accord
ance with the law and that, according
ly, the additional inembets who are to
bo elected at tho February election
cannot take their seats.
The Democtatlc mumbeis of council
appear to have dropped all Interest lit
the matter, uppnmitly safe In their
billet that when April I comes around
the new members cun be pi evented
fioni tnklng their seats by the existing
Demociatle majority of eleven In the
common blanch. This would bring the
new members Into com t with a peti
tion for a mandamus to compel coun
cil to seat them and the whole question
would be thu made ripe for a Judicial
Theieaieafeu members ol the com
mon council, Including at least one
Republican, who believe that an eflorl
should be made at once to test the
i ertillcates of nomination which havo
been tiled, to thus prevent, If possible,
the election of the additional niBniheis
and thereby save the city a deal of
litigation In the future.
A question exists as to whether
court would consider a contest of the
certlllcates, on the ground that the
recent apportionment was not made
according to law. A well known law
yer stated to a Tribune man tho other
clay that certificates had been contest
ed In the past In this county only on
the plea that the primaries weie not
properly conducted; that fraud existed
or that there wus some technical omis
sion or priors In the papeis them
selves. He said he doubted ety much a
to whether court would go outside of
this and take up such a question as
the legality of the apportionment af a
basis for a contest.
