SIGNING OF WARRANTS, Recorder Moir Explains His Position with Beference to the Matter. Other Side of It. A question that Is Just now ei eating much discussion and comment in city hall Is, shall the city wait ants in the future be drawn in the city eletk's office ot in the recorders oflice? liver since 188fi all warrants on llie city tieasmy have been diavvn and signed by tlie city cletk and issued from his office. Tlie ripper bill under which this city is now operating pro vides that all wai rants shall be signed by the recorder but makes no piovisiou as to who shall eft Aw or Issue them to the persons entitled to leceive them. Itecorder Moir while he says that he has not yet atrived at anv definite ton elusion nevertheless piactlcally ad mits that he will not sign any war lants diavvn by the tilty clerk. The councllmanic friends of City Cleik Ia velle who do not like to see htm strip ped of any of the functlonn of the office, which he has tilled so long ami so well, maintain that the lecorder cannot take upon hismself the power to dtaw anil issue warrants until the resolution passed in 18S.1" conferring that power on Mr. L.avelle 1s repealed. This icso lutiou tends as follows: N II ii lieiebv icaolved bv- the jdect. council of Ihe city of Scimtoli, the (ouiiiiou council ion eiitiinpr. th.it. from and aflei (he p.i--ji;t of IV-i-, ifiolution n(y wai rank, idi ill be prepared, xigned and iiuvicd bj Ihe i ity clerk and connteriigned by the city oontmllt i . T3x-Clly Solicitor Vosbtug is autlior ity for the statement that all tesolu tions and ordinances passed while Scranton was a city of the thiid elass, lomain in foree and binding. Of eomse tliat pot tion of the lesolutton which ptovides that the city cleik shall sign the wataiuts is inconsistent with the rippei bill but il is held by Mr. T.avelle that the tost of Ihe lesolution stands as law until repealed by resolution, Itecorder Moir when seen yestetd.iv afternoon by a Tribune man and asked lor an expireisou of opinion on the subject said: "1 want It undeistood thai ibeie Is no peisonal feeling in rav contention that the dtawing and issuing of w.ir tants should be done In my oflice. r have no elesiie to strip anybody ol any duties. 1 shnplv feel that if r am to sign the vvairants as ptovided In the ripper bill they should be eiiawu in my office and thoioiiRhly sciulhiiied either by mjself oi bv a clerk whom f can hold dliectly it sponsible. "If I attach my slgnatute to a war rant and it is dlseovered that It was diavvn for too laiee an amount II is 1 and not tho person who diow it who will be held tesponslble, I umnotsnylut; that the warrants could not be piop eily or correctly drawn outside of my oflice, but 1 do say that mistakes nilglu occur and that it is not loasonable to ask mo to bo sponsible for what somebody else docs.

The Spectatoi does not consider this the nash outburst en the "man in tlie stieet," for Admit al Canevato has been Italian minister of foreign' affairs. "His, utterance." the Spectator will say, "coi responds exactly with that ot Count Coluchowski (Austro-Huiigar-ian foreign minister) and with alt the lecent trend of affnlts.
