(From WodnBsday'a Dally.)
After rovlvlng tho roport of the

nnd tho Commercial club, and which
has tho center of hostilities for tho
two previous mooting, It. I'. Mlntor
saw tho peatlforoun document dlo n

cilman Denson endeavored to havo
the report tabled, but there was no

to Ignoro It entirely. Not ovon Mr.
Mlntor, who wroto tlAt roport, was
heard to tnovo Ita adoption.
Tho chnngo of n fow dntea In tho

with anger. "It Is not tho duty of
any committee to wind up ita roport
with such n slum na that against city
ofllcluls and such n respected and
progrosslyo organization na tho ItonJ
Commercial club," ho said. "Why
orgnuUcd labor did not como In for
criticism I enn't understand, for tho

council as well as to tho Commercial
Horo Mr. Mlntor declared that ho
had not intended to hurt anybody'a
feelings, but that ho objected to tho'
city's business being "peddled about"
from one Uee to another instead
ot being transacted In tho council
"As tho mayor or Ilend, 1 havo tho
right to go boforo tho Commercial

Mr. Eaatea declared. "I've got tho

Mr. Mintor was aggrieved, main

tho roport, but resented an attompt
by Mr. Mlntor to preside. Council

BALBM, April 3. Thoro is a cer
tain state salary warrant, bearing
tho numerals $336. which lies tin
honored but not unsung In tbo
offlco ot Btnto Treasurer Hon". It
was tko warrant which was Issued
to Governor Olcott for his norvlces
its governor of Oregon for tho month
of March, beginning March 7.
In accordance with n pro-arranged
program agreed upon by Governor
Olcott nnd Treasurer Hotf, tho war
rant was preaonted for pnymont on
Tuesday of this wook, but was not
honored. To Deputy Treasurer J, O.
Itlchardson fell tho task of telling
tho state's now executive that there
wom "nothing doing" so fnr as cash
ing tho warrant was concerned..

Governor Olcott did not grow ex
cited. Ho smiled nnd accepted tho
edict as though ho enjoyed Jt. And,
as a matter ot fact, It was Just ex
actly wjiat Oovornor Olcott delred,
for It Is by this method, nnd this
alone, that ho hopes to determine his
right to resign as sccrotary nt stnta
and appoint hla successor to that
of (Tee.

Public Interest about the'-capltol
this week Is centering upon Oovornor
Olcott'a next movo In his quest for
legal advlco. Following tho program
outlined by Attorney General ilrown,
no win next nio manuamus procceu
Ings lntho supremo court, to compel
tho stale treasurer to Ishuo tho salary
warrant. Through theso proceed
ings he" hopes to havo tho stato's
highest tribunal detcrtnlna whether
or not ho can resign as secretary ot
state without Impairing his right to
remain as governor. Whether or
not tho supremo court will pass upon
this phaso of tho mnttor is a mooted
question, becauso It is genorally,con
ceded that Mr. Olcott'a right to ac
cept tho salary of both secretary of
stato and govornor doesnot In any
way dotermluo his right to resign
tha former offlco.
Thoro nro somo constitutional
lawyers who maintain that boforo
this latter question can bo settled,
Mr. Olcott will havo to resign as sec
rotary of stato nnd then havo tha
question taken boforo tha supremo
court, but unless that courj passes
upon tho Icgnl point through the
present proceedings It Is almost n
certainty that &Ir. Olcott will retain
both offlccfl, for ho corlnlnly would
not bo expected to tnko a chanco on
losing both offices for tho mora snttsr
