Turner, reform mayur of stopped at The Commercial offloe last evening to five the editor a piece of hi mind for what was said in the paper yesterday about the policy of masterly inactivity of the present reform mayor and councilinen. With a good deal of warmth and pretty strong language he said he did not care for what truth might be told but he did object to the d d lies the article contained. Those lies were, he said, the statement that he is drawing 100 a month as chairman of the Hoard of Education, when in fact lis i drawing but 9:25 a month. This he gets by virtue of his office as mayor. Now this paper, taking Mr. Turner's word for it, it heing too late to verify his information when received, will concede that he draws a instead of tJ,4U. We were informed that lie drew StKXi instead of Shm a year. If this is an error he is welcome to the correction, as it is the purpose of this paper to give eiact figures. But fc!,lti0 is a big salary these times and we'd like to know, the taxpayers would like to know and have aright to know, whether the services of Mr. Turner are worth the money or not. He claims he puU in a good ileal of time. Possibly. Hut men who do business they are not adapted to have to put in much time and can not render much service of value either. Mr. Turner argues that he has been a high salaried man in the machine business. Probably true, but that is no evidence at all that he is earning HajSOO as mayor. Mr. Turner speut twenty years learning the machine busi ness and tins only had six months experience as mayor. He is a mere apprentice. The other "lie" that disturbed Mr. Turner's equanimity was the statement that when his salary was raised to f 1,800 by the council that he took the Hoor and made a speech in which he "almost beffged" to have his pay advanced. Well, Mr. Turner did call a member to the chair. He did take the floor. He did speak at considerable length. What for ? To oppose the advance of salary ? Not at all. He favored. He plainly Btated that he could not afford to the duties of the office, which he said he had discovered to be much more numerous and annoying than he had expected, for $500. Mr. Turner admitted to us that the purpose of his speech was to insist that the duties required demanded more money than had been paid and that he could not give them more than incidental attention for that sum. In short, Mr. Turner made quite a pressure for more salary, as being necessary for the public interests of the city and his own interests too, and his talk was so understood. He therefore did do, in effect, what we said he did, and there is no use in splitting hairs about the way of telling it. He favored the advance. His speech was in favor of it. And now he takes the money. Mr. Turner was reminded that he and several of the present council made their campaign as "reform" candidates. They were going to greatly improve on the old administration in economy, in nearly If Mr. Turner did not everything. promise this for himself the fellows who talked for him did so in a very loud voice. They got votes of people on that ground without a doubt. For they led many to believe that there was something wrong in the liberal administration, something extravagant, that the city was run by a "ring." And Mr. Turner was reminded that he and the council owe it to the city to keep those campaign promises as a matter of good faith to the men who elected them and that they should now back up Ogden's interests by works of enterprise and progress. And that it was not keeping faith with the people to go and raise their salaries the first thing as a matter of "reform" and "economy." Mr. Turner's answer to this was remarkable. He said that those campaign promises were "just simply political lies." Of course they had to have that kind of stuff to make a campaign, or woras to Otf-de- pei-for- soms-corrup- t, n.
