If you are not one of those prepared to reap an immense advan- tage from Saturday's offer, yon are going to be mighty sorry before this event is over.

CITY DEMANDS CONCESSION One Proposition Submitted By -Company and Another Meet-- ing Is To Be held, Another informal meeting which will be attended by City Solicitor Steinemann, members of the city coun- cil and Attorney E. Gueri'n, Jr., representing the L. S. M. S. Ry. Co., will be held Friday evening and it i6 believed that the city and the rail- road company ma_v get together at that time on the questions of grade crossing eliminations and extra track rights. At a meeting Monday night at Solicitor Steinemann's office these matters were discussed at great length, but no decision was reached. Attor- ney Handy, of the Lake Shore, was also present Monday evening. This much can be said of Monday Ight's moetlng: Cornell ia standing pat on its demand that the L. S. and M. S. bear 75 instead of 65 per cent of the cost of eliminating the grade- crossings at Columbus avenue and Hayes avenue in addition to other con- cessions which the railroad company .might be willing to make. The rail- road companj on the other hand, is not ready, at least at present to sig- nify its intention of making an> such proposition. That councilmen are confident that the L. S. M. S. will agree to a proposition is evident. The citv dads think the railroad's hesitancy is due to the fact that it fears that to -----agree to taking care of an extra ten per cent of the cost might cause it embarrassment in other places Hut the coiincilmeti are of the helief that the railroad company is i'nout willing lo make a in r-xchanuf for the right to ;he of the citv additional This however, ma-, rot be in the lorm of a peicMitatre of cost.

Mr Giimn not discuss the natme of the railroad company's pro- position. nor wonid councilmen give it out A row that is unique In the fact that it is over a municipal job which has not a cent of Salary at- tached to it, broke out at the city hall Tuesday morning when the action of the board of control Monday afternoon in naming. Henry C. Bloker as its clerk, be- came known. Old and familiar lines are drawn in this latest clash mayor and his department directors being ranged on one side and City Auditor Loth on the dther. TV board of control elected Blok- er clerk to succeed Cit> Auditor Loth, nas chosen to fill that position at the first meeting of the board over j a ear ago Tuesday morning Bloker, j who. upon accenting the job .Monday, thought everything was all right, an- nounced that he wouldn't accept the job "Theie's a reason." His boss won't let him. And his boss ln this ease is Auditor Loth, who feels that the mayor and his directors have tak- en a slam at him by taking the ship from him. Although Bloker has. since taking up his duties with tho citj, been the rlerk who attended to the details of Service Director Blag's- clen'ca] work, he was appointed by and works under the direction of Audi- tor lath. The mayor nor his direct- ors have any power to appoint de- partment clerks except a clerk tor board of control and council has al- ready seen to it that this job carries no salary. By ordinance, all other clerks are deputies of the auditor, ta be appointed by him. Bloker had Us choice Tuesday of either clerk of the board of control or a deputy auditor. He chose the latter, natural- ly, since it pays a salary of ft year while that of clerk of the% board pays not one cent. "I shall either continue to act as clerk of the board of control or board will go outside of my depart- ment to get another said Loth. "This move was another 'crack' at I was appointed clerk of the board of control at its first meeting bat I never since been notified of one ot its meetings and I understood that It has been said that I wasn't wanted around at the meetings; in fact, that the mayor said I couldn't attend them hereafter. As to the clerkship, thv board cannot hire any of my deputies. Council put the responsibility of su- pervising the clerical work up to ma and I intend to say what work they shall do and what they shall Dot do. I'm going to open up one of these days. If there is to be a fight the clerkship, I will welcome it. I would not have cared about board's action had any of the mem- bers come to me and talked to me a- bout the plan and asked if I wQUld! agree to allowing my deputy to serte. But nothing of the kind was done, al- though I hear that Bloker was gfvett to understand that Director Bing bad already arranged things with me." This new strained relation makes It appear as if the board of control would be in a hard way for the ser- vices of a cierk if Loth ia ousted. Once more it is a case of the city council holding the whip in hand and that body has all along been with tho auditor, it xvas council that but recently cut out the 1300 salary last year ap- propriated by a board of control sec- retary and raised the salary of the assistant city auditor a >ear, pre- sumably with the understanding that he take care of the board of control clerical work. But Assistant City Au- ditor John Murphy was not elected clerk by the board at its meeting Mon- day. However, as it is now, board must take Loth as clerk or get someone else who will work without pav And there are no volunteers ia j sight.
