of Public Works to appoint, and It Is
Hkoly that a Democrat will bo given the
position. The Mayor has also tho ap
pointment of a Health Commissioner,
City Physician, Plumbing Inspector and
Superintendent of the Street Cleaning:
Department, but as these officers must

Of the new members of the Board of
Public Works, all are Tvcir-known men.

Burrell estate, and has large property

In the Auditor' Office.
Auditor Devlin Quietly took charge of
his office yesterday. There was only one
new face in the office, that of Captain
HI U. Welch, who succeeded Mr. Devlin
as Assessment and record clerk. Chief
Deputy Grutze still smiles over the long
counter, and the other deputies were
busy yesterday with their regular duties,
all apparently willing to serve the pub
lic another two years.
Cameron Take the Bench.
Yesterday was Judge George J. Camer
on's first day on the bench at the Munici
pal Court. The first announcement ho
made was that Sam L. Mason Jr., would
continue as clerk of the Court. Then
the Judge proceeded to work, and the
usual drunks and vagrants who came
before the Court received little mercy,
and the fines amounted to over J40. H.
Gramell and H. Holt, two longshoremen,
arrested for disorderly fighting by Offi
cer Hawley, were fined $10 each. J. Fras

nimseii ana his two deputies, John Man

of Commerce building. Mr. Spencer will
serve in the Municipal Court, taking the
place vacated by John W. Paddock. Mr.

ficiated under District Attorney SewalL

ed. 2Serr Poor Farm Superintendent.
The new Board of County Commission
ers, comprising J. G. Mack, William

Slack Outline Reforms.
County Commissioner J. G. Mack in
.speaking of the policy of the new body,
.rWhlle I do not wish to criticise the ac- j
tion of any of my predecessors, I will
state that it will be the aim of the new
board in the first place, to reduce taxes,
and in the second place In the purchasing
of supplies to receive bids whenever It is
practicable, and to let the contract to the
lowest responsible bidder. I think that
there is no question but that tho other
members of the board acquiesce in these
-views. We called in Mr. Chamberlain, the
-Lttstrlct Attorney, to have him examine
the bonds of the different county officials.
All legal papers that come before the
board will be passed upon by him."
The next meeting of 'the County Com
missioners will ba held Thursday morn
ing at 10 o'clock.
The force in the Sheriff's office will be

appointed John Russell as his only deputy
In place of John M. Lewis. The latter has
held the position for quite a" number of
years, and his efficiency is unquestioned,
but Mr. Brooke choso to have a man of
his own. -The County Republican Cen
tral Commlttee made no suggestion as to
this office, for the reason that as the
Treasurer is responsible for the safe cus
tody of the moneys In his charge he would
not care to have someone else pick his
assistane. This course was also pur
sued by the commltteo as to the City
Treasurer's deputy, and some people think

Chairman Bronaugh stated that the !
aIms a1 objects of the organization
wnien mis council represented wore to
devise ways and means for spending the
oicycie tax money to the groatcst ad
vantage tothe greatest number In the
way of path construction.
Councilman Rumelln suggested that the
members of the various wards be made
committee to select the most feasible
routes from the
various sections of the
city leading out to the bicycle paths al- 1
ready in exi? tence. and that these coun-
cilmen consult together from time to time
in the various sections so as to best ob-
tain this end. j
Councilman White made a motion that
committee of three. Including the chalr-l
man, be named to confer with the City
Council in order to secure rights-of-way
for building paths from the various sec
tions of the city to the suburban paths.
and that this committee also obtain the
use of one side of certain sidewalks lead- ,
lng to such paths, pending the construe-
tion of city paths.
After considerable discussion, in which

"WALTER S. BURRELL.
and C. E. Rumelln were named as the
members -of this committee. , '
It was stated that the employes of the
Southern Pacific car shops wanted and
deserved, a path leading from the car
works to the nearest path. Upon a mo
tion", a committee composed of Council
men Morrow, White and Wells was ap
pointed to select the best route to rec
ommend. During the discussion of this matter it
developed that the bicycle council meant
to do all within its power to get city
paths that would benefit the many work
ing people who wish to use wheels in go
ing to and from their work.
Upon motion of Colonel L. L. Hawkins,
it was decided to request female bicyclists
to place their tags on'the upper "bar near
1 the front fork of their wheels so that
the collector could sea them readily. As
they are now placed, tho skirts or the
riders hide the tags.
Colonel Hawkins also moved that a
