Mr. Morrow thought the nectarines of
the case demanded Immediate action.
and moved that Select Council concur In
the action of Common 'council. •
Mr. Kehew said that he was In favor of
an ordinance of that kind, but could not
vote for It unadvisedly, and thought
Councils abbuld have the advice of the
City Solicitoras to he - legality. And
another fact should be taken Into conaid.
°ration: Th. City Treasurer was paying
at the rate of 116000 per annum for clerk
hire, which he could not afford to do if
the funda were taken from him. The
city should make some arrangements er r
i n creasing his salary, when such an or
dinance as the one proposed was teased.
He hoped it would lay over until each
time as Councils could have the report of
the Committee and Solicitor on the mat
Sir. Brown said that he had examined
the ordinance and was fully prep
vote on it. It was a matter of great im=
portance and had been before Councils
fora month, and If it should be laid over
a month longer he !Mold not be any bet
ter prepared to vote. He thought that
there was no nocesairy for afarther pad,-
.8'1)1dt - that. there. was great
diversity of opinion on the question' of
the legality of the ordinance, end he was
not prepared to vote for it. When a
man expended his time and money to
secure an office of profit and trust and
had entered bonds, da., . it .amounted to
Mr. Devlin intoned what amount of
money would be saved to the city by the
paseage of this ordinance. _
Mr. McAuley said he could not answer
the question. He had not ex relined the
amount dr...unexpended balite*" in the
Treasury. • _
Mr. Jones add the arguments need by
some of the gentlemen opposing the pas
sage of ordManco were, In his (Minion. I
strong reasons, why the ordinances I
should be parsed. If, as intimated by
ono gentleman. a man was corrupt
enough to spend money to secure an elec.
tion to the office of Treasurer, and the
people corriarit enough to receive it and
elect him it wart time a check was put
upon !Fedi matters. H e did not say that
the Treasurer bad' done etc but - It had
been sm intimated. It malaise Intimated
that the Treasurer wee using the city
funds, which was a direct violation of
law, and be thought the community de
manded the passage of such en ordinance
ea the one - pro Posed. • When the Tress.
urer was elected and accepted the office
he knew the salary paid by the city, and
akin knew.the law In relation to tne use
or publics' fends ' by municipal °Meer*.
and it could by no means be an act of
Mb:tattoo. to him to pars the ordinance.
Tne city was' ready and . willing to pay
its officers a good salary.
Mr. ,Eiartunip. paid that be .was not a
lawyer; but as a matter of common arose

of all eitherea',lr there was any benefit

question iss; that he *would not give a
