Jurisdiction Is Denied.
On top of this their attorney, Ralph
K. Duniway. has raised the point that
the city has no Jurisdiction for the
reason that the present, city charter
makes no provision for the situation.
He contends , that power cannot be
exercised through ordinances unless
it Is granted by the charter
Hnder the oltf city charter, powr
was granted to declare local assess
ments by ordinance. It is claimed
by Mr. Duniway that this power was
repealed with the old charter when
the commission form of government
was adopted, and that now the city
has no authority to act through ordi
nances, because this authority is not
f expressly granted by the charter. The
only way to overcome the difficulty,
he says. Is to amend the .charter.
His contention Is similar to the one
lie raised last year In the suit to
provided, upon the subject of improve
ments of whatever nature to be paid
for by local assessment."
Mr. Latourette holds that the city
has power to proceed by ordinance.
Granted that it has not. he claims
that the old charter provision would
obtain. " .
In the decision of the state 8uprerrtei
oourt affirming the validity of the
charter amendments rendered in May,
1913, Chief Justice McBride said:
"It is objected that certain sections
of the old charter are repealed as
charter provisions but retained as
ordinances, subject only to repeal by
the commission council, and it is
contended that, this is a delegation
of power to the council to repeal
these provisions of the charter and'

the right to repeal portions of the
charter is granted such right must

be exercised by the people, and can
not be delegated to the council. Th
effect of the clause in the revision
objected to is to repeal the provisions
as part of the charter and to reenac
them as ordinances.
All Work Suspended.
"The people have already repealed
them so far as they stood as charter
provisions, but have reenacted them
as ordinances. There is no delega
tion of power here."
The deputy city attorney interprets
this as in no wise unfavorable to
the city's position.
In the meantime, all work on the
road, has been suspended, and the

"His policy of "watchful waiting" has
