THE MSB HOIKED ALGONA, IOWA, , APfflt, 10, JjgR HERE IT IS, The Best Top Buggy for the Money-On the Market STttt AK OPEN QUESTION. Aigoftft's City Council Muddle Is No Neater a Solution Than tt WAS a Week Ago. Both Sided Propose to Stand Fiftn—A Letters Showing ttow Ctfaet Cities Proceed. IF YOU WANT something good, and want to get it at a very low price, call at the Wigwam and see this buggy. It is a beauty and no mistake about it. People are in to look at it every day, and the wonder is how so fine a buggy can be sold at such a low price. DON'T FAIL TO SEE IT. Wilfrid P. Jones. Here is a Partial List _ 0 f the goods we shall handle during the season of 1895 : Brown Corn Planters, Brown Corn Plows, Brown Corn Harrows, Owens Fanning Mills, Standard Mowers, Full Steel Frame Disc Harrow, Finest Buggies, Surreys and Phaetons on earth. Bradley &Nicoulin.- The municipal situation has hot cleared up. It is still att open question who the commltteemen for the coming year are ( Mayor Haggard is firm in the opinion that he Had full authority to appoint the committees and that he mtT£AT has acted within that authority. The five members of the council who rejected his committees are equally decided that they have full authority and propose to stand by their own appointees. The law is sufficiently doubtful to admit of a question, and by the time the coming April meeting arrives it will be of public interest to know which is right. To this end THE UPPER DBS MOINES has secured information from neighboring cities of the second class, and publishes the statements it has received. It will be seen that while customs vary the mayor appoints where no express provision is made to the contrary! SPBNCEK, Iowa, April 6.—Dear Sir: Your letter in reference to the selection of committees of our council at hand, and in reply would say; Our mayor appoints all the committees of the council, none of them being elected or selected by the council. I apprehend, however, that if the council saw fit it could divest the mayor of his authority, under the provision of the code, which provides that the council shall have authority to make its own rules, etc. Trusting that the information may be of some service to you, I am yours respectfully, H. J. BUCK, City Clerk. EMMETSBUUO, Iowa, April 6.—Dear Sir: Yours of April 5 at hand. In reply would say that the mayor appoints all of the regular standing committees of the council, and th?.<$5uncil cannot override the appoint- mentpJl/We have a regular set of rules and regi-i'tfons under which the matter of '"' ! " fee of certain matters are defined „.„. ed. How it would be without such rules, etc.. I don't know, never looked it up, as we had only three committees before the adoption of said rules. All other matters outside of those set out in said rules are referred to a special committee appointed by the mayor or the party making the motion to refer at the time of reference. I enclose you a list of our committees, but we have no copy of the rules.and regulations printed as yet, but expect to have the same soon. Very truly yours, D. W. BURMNGAME, City Clerk. MASON CITV, Iowa, April 5.—Dear Sir: The committee on water works is elected by ballot by councilmen. All other committees are appointed by the mayor and so far as I know that is positive and final. Yours very truly, L. C. SALE, City Clerk. WEBSTER CITY, Iowa, April 5.—The mayor names the committees and the first named on the committee is chairman of same. Council takes no action. Yours truly, GEO. S. JACKS, City Clerk. FOBT DODGE, Iowa, April 8.—In reply to above questions will say that our mayor appoints the standing committees for the year and I have not known of any dissatisfaction by the council. Yours truly, D. A. WELLEH, City Clerk. The statutes are almost entirely devoid of anything bearing on the matter. The councilmen take the position that their power to make rules and to control streets, water works, etc., entitles them to name committees. Mayor Haggagd, however, takes the position that by long established custom this authority has been in Algona and elsewhere dele- jated to the mayor, and that it cannot te taken away by a mere vote. Whatever is decided it appears to an impartial observer that an ordinance regulating the appointment and duties of committees would be a timely and fitting enactment at an early meeting. ladder iflstead of eftterifig tb.6 Cabo'Ote afid Intended to ride dft tott.
