One of thc warrants in question and which is cautdne; con aiderablu unfavorable comment is a warrant for $.D0.0O issued to cover the discount on 11 warrant previously issued to the Wnrron Construction Co. After some discussion in regard to this phase of the situation a motion was made and curried asking the chair to appoint a committee to look over thc outstanding warrants with a view of finding out the sum total of the so called legitimate wurrants and consider thc proposition of issuing bonds sulficient to cover them. It wns suggested by Attorney Johnson und P. It. Heals that the war rants in question be segregated and their payment stopped by injunction until it was learned just how much of them the courts would compel us to j pay. The following committee was appointed; P. It. Heals. S. S. Johnson, ! M. P. Leach. It. T. Hotts, W. C. King. , Tho committee was requested to report to the citizens on Monday night after which thu meeting adjourned. , On Monday evening the citizens ' again gathered ut thu court house and tho committee which was appointed on Pridny evening made n report as fol lows : It is tite aim of this bank to give the best banking service possible and we do it. It is also our aim to have the very best equipment, such as Modern Iire Proof Banking Room, Fire Proof Vault, Bur glar Proof Safe. Modern Safe Deposit Boxes and we have them. FIRST NATIONAL BANK TILLAMOOK, OREGON the warrant was improperly issued, oninion of a nnrt nf tl, . !!.. 1 I ......... ... ' "w i.uiuuim one miscalculation in inis om- ..i. 111 1 1 amounting 10 nearly iw.w, anu; there may be other errors in it. We think that thc warrant was improperly allowed under thc circums antes, and beliuvc that it should not ba paid, "al though we think that the greater part of it snould in all probability be set tled for by the issuing of a warrant later on when tho exact amount is de termined after further investigation. VVarrant.Ku. 1342 -iuued Nort?mbrr 1th, 1912, to thc Warren Construction Co, for $SSJ.C0, covers a claim, of SX30.00 for discount on warrant No. 1320, and $43 CO for other amounts I .1. .t-ri. it. 1 1 wmcnweinmK are proper. ve ms- We would recommend that the war approve of this warrant as to the I rant3 whieh we have mentioned aa not we think that being clear as to the City's liability. they should be taken up with a view to Wise in THE TILLAMOOK HERALD. It Reaches re People Than Any Other Paper in the County To tho Citizens Meeting: We, your committee appointed to in j vestigato as to the outstanding war i ranta of Tillamook City, Oregon, beg leave to report that we have gone over 1 the outstanding, unpaid warrants and j find that there are approximately of , these $15,000.00 unpaid. A part of these warrants appear to have been ! issued for proper claims against Till amook City, and wo believe that tho City has received full value for them. Some of thu warrants however wo are ' not ablo.to pass on without further in vestigation, und some of these, wo are of tho opinion, should not bu paid as they do not represent any legal or ' moral obligation, in our opinion, jngi.inst Tillamook City. Wo would I specify as these warrants tho follow ing: October 8th, 1912 warrant No. 1320 was Issued to tho Warren Construction 1 Co., for $1G,719.-I5 In pnymunt for tho I storm power contracted last year. In looking over the hill for this amount wo find that tho sumo was O. K.'d by , thu City engineers, by J. 1. Hess "sub ! Joct to verification," and we do not I find any verification of thu account, ' Tho contract under which thfs sowor t was constructed provides tliat nil ma terials should bo approved'ns to price before boing purcjised by tho City Survoyor. Wo found nothing; to show bucIi approval by the City Surveyor, und in view of tho wording of tho 0. K. of tho bill by Mr. Hess, concluded that this part of thu contract' hud not boon complied with, und for that reason amount of $S3G.OO, as there was no legal right in the City to issue a warrant for discount, and think the warrant is illegal and should not be paid. December 4th, 1912, warrant No. 13S1 was issued to Warren Construction Co. for $$4.21. We could not rind any bill fur this and are unable to say whether it is a proper claim against the citv or not. December 31st, 1912, warrant No. 141? was issued to the Warren Con struction Co. for $451.20. .This in cludes an item presented to thc Council for legal work and engineering work of $250.00. We were not able to find what this item was based on and could not say that it is a proper claim with out further information. On April 21, was issued to the War ren Construction Co. four warrants, No. 1514 to 1517 inclusive, amounting to ?IS34.5 This includes several items, No. 1 being for $1120.00 insur ance premium on employers liability insurance for work done in the con struction of tho storm sewer. There were somo other items included for work done, and on the total a charge of 10 per cent was made, under the terms supposedly of the storm sewer contract. As somo of tho items were not for work done on tho storm sewer the 10 per cent commission would be improper us to them, and it is the readjustment 01 them, ana the issuing of new warrants for the proper amounts, where they have been issued for too .much, ifpon a cancellation of the old warrants. We think that war rant No. 134 is not a legal or moral obligation of the City, and should not be paid. Warrant No. 1320, the great er item of all the warrants, should be carefully investigated and settled upon what is found to be a proper basis. Respectfully submitted. P. R. Beals, H. T. Botts. M. P. Leach, ' W. C. King. S. S. Johnson. Committee.. After the reuding of the report a mo tion for the adoption of the same was made and carried. By further motion the committee was ordered to take up with the Warren Construction Co., the settlements of the notes in question. At the suggestion of S. S. Johnson a iKotinn was made and carried asking the chair to appoint a committee to confer with the water commission for the purpose of securing from the com mission temporary uid in regard to tho payment of salaries and other neces sary expenses, until the whole situa tion might bo more thoroughly investi gated.

THE OLD RELIABLE Tillamook County Bank a ten per cent allow ance premium was improper. Taking all of the items which have found are- not clear as to being proper charges against thc City, there remains about 115,000 of the out standing warrants, which in our opinion ehould be paid without any question, and with tb other liabilities of the City which should be taken care of, .and,the.jrJl- i nary current expense to January 1st, 1914, we think that $25,000 would bo ! required to be raised by a bond isse if one be hail, to put the City's finances in a proper condition.
