The trouble has arisen over Mayor Fawcett'a ordi nance slashing $10,000 a year off city salaries. The ordinance was formally passed a week ago Wednesday and signed by the Mayor. At the time It was passed, some of the Commissioners objected to a sharp cut to 250 made in tho salary of the City Attorney, who had been getting 400 a month. Nevertheless, the measure went through and reposed serenely until Monday, when the Mayor and four Commissioners convened for their adjourned legislative session from the previous Wednesday. Reconsideration Effort Faaaen. At the Monday meetlifg, a motion was made to reconsider the Fawcett salary ordinance and it passed with the votes of Commissioners Drake, Woods and Mills. This was followed by a motion by Mills to amend -the Fawcett ordinance to increase the City Attorney's pay from $260 a month al lowed by Fawcett, to $350; and other items which Fawcett had cut out. The amendment thereupon received the votes of the four Commissioners, Fawcett alone voting against it and Commissioner Atkins afterwards chang ing his vote.

(Special.) Mrs. Sarah Baber, a 'pioneer of this part of the state, died at her home ln this city after an illness since December 30. She was born in Clark Coun ty. Illinois, April 26. 1832, and was married to Joseph Leaffer ty September 6. 1849. She moved with her husband across the plains In 1852 and settled 12 miles from Corvallis, near Mon roe. Mr. Leafferty and their three children died. She was married to C. C. Baber. of this city, in 1901. The interment will be in the Masonic Cemetery, near Har risburg.

The City Clerk held the records showed the Fawcett ordinance had been reconsidered and had not passed again and that the old sp.lary ordinance was in effect. Mayor Makes Charier, Mayor Fawcett charged tho whole thing in putting through the amend ment was a scheme to put him in i hole, where he couldn't vote for his own ordinance because of the amend ment tacked on to it- He asserted that Commissioners Mills and Woods, who are facing a recall election for which petitions were filed last week, wanted to have the present City At torney In office as Fawcett was sure he would rule against the recall peti tions and, also, that he would resign lx nis salary was cut. city Attorney T. L. Stiles in a published statement accused Mayor hawcett of resuming his old tactics that had caused hia recall three years ago and trying to dictate appointments of the other Commissioners, naming specifically Commissioner Drake, upon whom Stiles said Fawcett hid attempted to force friends. The Mayor retorted in kind and also had a section of the city charter read at last Wednesday's Council meeting showing that the Mayor is given authority to "super vise ail oepartments. Inslgned Warrants Likely. Mayor Fawcett has announced that If the City Controller draws the salary warrants for June for city employes on the basis of the old ordinance, which his measure sought to supplant, he will refuse to sign them and Com missioner of Finance Atkins has de clared, he will refuse to nay salary warrants on the basis of the old rate. The City Attorney and City Controller both hold that the old rate is still in effect and that the Fawcett ordinance cutting salaries has been reconsidered. The upshot is likely to be unsigned salary warrants for city employes and necessity for somebody to go into court to unravel the tangle, unless there is some mediation meanwhile. The con troversy has developed more bitter feeling than would appear. "If the Mayor presists in his present bulldozing- tactics they will land him on the same rocks where he was a few years ago." said City Attorney Stiles, a former member of the State Supreme Court bench, in his statement. "I was absent when the salary ordinance was taken up Wednesday, but I understand the Mayor literally forced Commis sioners Mills and Drake to vote for the entire ordinance. As the matter now stands, the Fawcett ordinance is just the same as if it had received two readings in Council and was up for third consideration."

STATE FOUND EASY Washington Lets Renters Fall Behind in Payments. $50,000 NOW COLLECTIBLE So Liberal Have Been Terms of Com monwealth in Fixing: Tldelandi Ueases, Tliat Seattle Ixt, in In stance, Kent s for $4 a Year. OLYMPIA, Wash.. May 30. (Spe cial.) The State of Washington has been such an easy landlord that it has allowed renters of agricultural and grazing lands to fall behind more than $50,000 in their rent, mora than half of this sum being now uncollectible the State Bureau of Inspection states in a report filed with the Attorney General, after a thorough examination of the office of Commissioner of Pub lic Lands. So liberal have been the terms or the state in fixing tide land leases, that in one Seattle Instance, a lot In the dock and warehouse district, on Railroad avenue, is rented for 14 per year, the lease having many years yet' to run. 19SO Rentals Fixed In 18SO. Rentals for 1920, when ' Seattle, It is estimated, will ha.'e 500.000 people, were fixed by conditions in 1890, when the population of the city waa 4-'.8:i7. "If Astor had practicd the tide laud rental methods of-the State of Wash ington, he would have gone broke early In the same," is the observation made by the bureau in discussing this phase of the situation. A clear loss of $31,211.54 had been sustained up to October 31. 1913 through failure to collect rentals due on agricultural and grazing leases, the report states, while on the date named an additional $25,290.92 was de linquent, but is listed as "possible to collect." Land Commissioner Savidge now is engaged In collection of this amount. Rrspprsliement Is Advised. Reappraisment of tide land leases. at least every five years. Is recommend ed as tho only method of handling tills situation. The bureau's report concludes with a recommendation to the Legislature that the salary of Commissioner of Puhllj Lands bo Increased from J:t000 to $5000. "Two hundred and fifty dollars a month, after the payment of house rent, clothing, meat, grocorlos. light, water, fuel, laundry. ct, leaves little for the grandpa stage of life. It Is a serious reflection on the people of this state that their main elective officers, from Governor to Land Commissioner, are today working fcr honor and their board."
