Because of some of the appointive officers in the city government have been open to complaint, Mayor Ray has found it necessary to make a statement state-ment as to the standing of the city council on the appointments. Mr. Ray does not feet obligated to stand the slander given officers which he has not appointed. His statement follows: There seems to be a great deal of criticism just now of the conditions existing at the present time in our city, and I believe the criticism is justly . deserved.

Kvery eflfort Was therefore' used in'favor of Mr. Ta'tt. If the Republican leaders continue to enforce the laws, notwithstanding notwith-standing the money powers and combines arrayed ainst them, they will undoubtedly continue to hold the controroifhe American poli tics. It wuuld appear from the statement of ..President JTaftLliaL.il ,i the intention of the administration to enforce the law.
