  • Mayor W.W. Eifert today found George H. Millar, councilman from the third ward, guilty of "immoral and indecent" conduct and fined him the maximum amount under the ordinance, or $50. Thus ends the case which was begun on the eve of a special election a week ago and which has held the attention of the city since that time.

  • Mayor W.W. Eifert today found George H. Millar, councilman from the third ward, guilty of "immoral and indecent" conduct and fined him the maximum amount under the ordinance, or $50. Thus ends the case which was begun on the eve of a special election a week ago and which has held the attention of the city since that time.
    It is openly charged and generally credited that the case against Millar came as the result of his refusing to support certain political programs of Mayor Eifert and City Attorney Boggs. Millar has been one of the four councilmen who have opposed Mayor Eifert's efforts to remove capable employees of the city to make room for his friends, and Eifert has been openly quoted as declaring that he would "whip Millar into line."
