'Painful Duty' Declares Mayor as
He Assesses maximum Fine, or $50,
en Councilman Case Will le Car
ried Up in Writ of Review
Newbury Charges legg $ With Perse
cuting Millar fer Priitlcal Effect
In City Pslltlcs
Mayor W. W. Eifcrt today found
George If. Millar, councilman from
the Hiird ward guilty of "irameral
and indecent" conduct, and fined him
the maximum amount under the or
dinance, or .f.'iO. Thus ends tho case ''
which was begun on tho eve of a spe
cial election ii week ago Friday, nnd
which has held tho attention of the
city since that time.
It is openly charged nnd generally
credited that tho case against Millar
came as the result of his refusing to
suport certain political program
of Mayor Eifert nnd City Attorney
Boggs. Millar has been one of the
four cimcilmcn who hnvo opKsed
Mayor Eifert's efforts to remove cap
able employees of tho city in order
to make room fur his friends, mid
Eifert has been openly quoted as de
claring that he would "whip Millar
The case can only be. appealed Iu
the circuit court in n writ of rcvioW -which
will survey the law mints at
issue. This will be-dime.
Although Millar was placed oh trial
for immoral conduct, City Attorney
Boj?gs insisted on introducing cvi
dense concerning Millar!., methods of
conducting' the Manhattan cafe.
Mayor Eifert supported Hoggs in
every contention nearly through the
case, overruling all of Attorney New
bury's objections. In nearly dich
case Newbury took exceptions.
The defense literally tore thu pro
secution's case to bits ns fur as the
charge of immorality wns concerned.
The only witness brought by the pro.
secutioii to testify us to Millar's con
duct nt the Royal Rooming house was
Meno F. Davis. Ho sworo that ha
saw Millar at tho Royal, with one of
Iniiwached Only Witness.
The defeuso impeached Davis,
showing that he was a drag fiend,
was drunk many times, nnd thorough
ly unreliable. Three other men, be
sides Millar, wore iu tho room at the
time Davis was there. This is all of
the evideuco concerning (ho immoral
conduct introduced nud Millar estab
lished that ho was there for tho pur
pose of currviug food from bis cafe.
When court convened this morning
City Attorney Hoggs opened the ar
gument for the city. He spent much
of his time iu declaring ho was not
persecuting Millur nud pleading for
officials who wero trying to enforce
tho laws. Ho was followed by At
torney Newbury who reviewed tho en
The original complaint ngaiust
Millar was nut on file and Newbury
moved to dismiss tho charge ou (hut

NKV YORK, March 31. Owing to
tho support extended by banking in

only stock market evidences of tho
financiers pushing. Tho report that
