The mayor will Tell of his stay in omitting All allusion to Hie private Busi Ness. Bergstrom will Tell of the in the Boelhauwe Hoef Ling Case Connor will inflate the with any amount of Toffy and Tell him How he and Fritz held the town Down for his a couple of Days in new York then for dear old riving Here on the 15th inst. And a the sixteen Page opinion of a Good lawyer published. Daily borne Days ago i noticed in the express the court journal of the King who is now absent in Paree or some other that the Good employed by acting mayor Schreiner to revise the judgment of our supreme court and the opinion of the Clearing in the we rendered a sixteen Page opinion to the City Council the result of which was that the mayor got a move on himself and hunted or. Hoe Fliner up and gave him his certificate of qualification immediately As Alderman. Now what worries me is that this Good lawyers still a City secret and although probably to be paid Lor by the people has never yet been read openly nor published in the court so we could All learn some something new about supreme court mandates and the a Tui dignity and Power of a City Council and its lawyer. Why not drive this famous opinion to the Public Why All this secrecy if As reported tins opinion shows up the aforesaid "8m. Pac a. A. P a. A. St. By.

Decided the celebrated Dick Duncan Case in Only five pages of it strikes me that As the sole result of this Good lawyers opinion has been to give or. Hoefling his office denied him by the City attorney Why on Earth did the Afore said Grood lawyer 1 want to waste fifteen wheels of Good paper in writing an opinion which certainly could not be understood by the coun cil. I May be wrong but considering How ridiculous this whole business of referring supreme court decisions to any lawyer for opinion is it seems to me that the longest opinion that could have been rendered with propriety by the Good lawyer would Piave been Hon. Mayor and City Council the highest court of Lii is state having affirmed the judgment declaring we.
