Kavanaugh . Wants to Hare Circuit
Court Decide Whether Civil Serv
ke Commission Can Change Rank
or Salary of Man It Haa Appointed.
In order to 1iave a ruling from a cir
cuit court Judge on the Question as to
whether or not the cirli service com-
mission has the right to change an em
ploye's rank or salary after he haa been
appointed to a municipal position by the
commission. Deputy City Attorney 3. P.
Kavanaugh has ilea a motion in trie
court aaklng that' the writ of mandamus
In the caae of John Rankin be quashed.
John Rankfrr was formerly a sidewalk
Inspector in the city engineer's office
at a salary of 7i a month. There were
six sidewalk inspectors. - An ordinance
was passed reducing the number of reg
ular Inspectors to 'four, but providing
for the appointing of others aa needed,
to receive a salary of 13.10 a day for
the time actually employed. At the
time the ordinance,! waa passed . John
Rankin and Amos S. -"-Oroce were side
walk Inspectors. Oroce waa one of two
transferred to the Irregular shifts.
March 1 Charles Warner waa appointed
city engineer and at once attempted to
promote Grace - and reduce Rankin.
Rankin objected, and Presiding Judge
Fraser recently decided that the head
of a municipal department had no right
to reduce an employe In rank or salary.
and Issued a writ of mandamus ordering
City Auditor Devlin to pay Rankin hla
salary from' March 1.
In the motion filed this morning it is
set forth that prior to March 1 Rankin
waa employed at an Inspector In the
engineer's department, being rated In
elaaa 10, grade C, of that department,
at a salary of ITI a month. 4 that an
Irregular Inspector la In f irtf ftame class
aa a regular Inspector and hat the kind
of service is Identical. ' (
The i city attorney also holds that
