Hooding also to a committee. Or. Vernor was granted permission to address the Council and did so Reading Tho decree of the Texas supremo court give lip or in oetling his Soat As Alderman of Ward no. And ousting Roel Hance. The opinion of City attorney Borg Strom probably the most lengthy one he has Ever presented to the Council was read As follows with reference to Tho contest Between William hooding and Joseph Boelhauwe to which the City of san Antonio was no party the question arises is Tho City Council now of and to Seal or. Hoelling v if not legally bound to do so would Tho Council be t justified in doing so the Ollice of Alderman is a representative one not simply ministerial where the duties of the officer Are clearly Laid Down and his salary fixed. In a contest for a representative office Tho interests of those who elected Tho Are different from what they would be in a purely ministerial Liliee. An Alderman elected to fill an Oslica could not agree with his Defeated opponent to voluntarily withdraw and live him the office. Why theoflice does not belong to him. Lie was simply elected to represent Tho people of his own Ward and they Havo the right to select their own representatives. An Alderman is not elected with Power to substitute another in his Stead. Who does not desire to serve to can resign and the voters o his Ward can elect another to take his place. If he can not by agreement Kivo another his place can he do so indirectly by permitting himself to by sued for the office and then without a trial or contest permit such other person to Tako Tuli Smunt for it if so what right or voice would the the selection of their if that Scro so were Candida is for office could barter and soil them As they pleased. Regardless of Tho ques Tion whether or. Lionel Sauwo was afforded an Opportunity for trial or not ther fact remains that the Case was not tried the ballots cast at the election Scro not counted and it was not ascertained in that contest which candidate had received Tho greatest number of Legal votes. Folic cars wore appointed to superin tend the election and count thu bal lots cast and declare the result and Illch count declared that or Lionel Sauwo had received the greatest number of votes and declared him duly elected Tho result of that count has never been revised and stands As it did when made. Therefore 1 am of opinion that ibis Council can do nothing except to stand by that count until revised by a court of competent jurisdiction to which the City is a party and its rights in the matter the manner in which the City clerk read this opinion was triumphant and he read the paper with evident pleasure and with As much emphasis Ami enunciation As though it were his own carefully pre pared Aulon. Or. Vornor answered this opinion in a Strong speech of Short length but it had not its effect on Tho hard headed Council the motion to refer it to Legal counsel and Layover Nill another n meeting of Tho Council prevailing with Only lick Truann s dissent. Tho City Council of the City of san an Tonio had defiantly disobeyed the com mands of the supreme court of Texas As its citizens have repeatedly Don o Wotli Hogg s sunday Laws and other Law Ful measures. Tho audience left leaving but two spectators. L when order had been restored reports of of ulcers were presented messes. Mullaly s petition As to sidewalk Grade on Augusta Street was granted. A larger Culvert to ditch on Lomana Street was ordered. Recommendation of City electrician that names of Whoso holding keys to lire alarm boxes be published was granted. Commission of widening Roianna Street filed its report. Encroachments on Huron and other streets were presented by Iho City Engineer. The petition of Street car motor Moi relative to regulation of hours of labor was revamp Tolly rejected after an opinion by Iho City attorney that Tho Council Only has Tho right to impose penalties for Tho Security of Tho in Olla in Street cur transportation. The Salae Ous ordinance Ron Laiing houses of Iii Fame was next presented and read by the clerk. It is a very strict ordinance requiring All houses of ill Fame. And All persons pursuing urn occupation. Of a Bawd to pay an annual License and to submit to monthly inspections by the Elty physician or his assistants. It was passed under of tha rules. The Council then adjourned until 1 thursday As the hour was the Driver s holy. To the Light in a article in your valuable the City electrician says it was nut Tho fault of the alarm system which caused Tho Mission Hose company to go wrong i inn Day night. The Driver was in to u Groat a hurry and drove out web omit waiting for the numbers to be completed Kei erring to Tho above article i would convey the impression to Tho Public that i was unfitted for the position entrusted to me. Therefore in answering Tiu said article to give the True fuels in Tho Case i leave it to Tho Public to judge where the fault lies. It was o clock thursday night when the alarm was turned in. 1 wont to my Pluto on the reel. Capt. Rolv not being Urc Srin. My of Tho i rent in called out Box 135." was about to Start when or. Murphy called out number 13 is Conr lug i remarked. What 135 one of the Lireman got Down off the reef went to twin Telephone and tried to Gerthe Lecci Rucian s office and failed. M r. Mur Phy tried to ring them no and also failed.
