letter to the editor - coroner Maulsby, A. R.
Facts in regard to the Coroner's Office
Editor Marysville Globe. A letter in your last issue by Dr. Wm. D. Smith is indeed very misleading and demands an answer by me. I would like to be clearly understood upon the following facts: 1st that the fee paid for physicians to view a body and give his opinion is $10 so says the doctor is so unreasonable. A doctor's opinion is no better than that of any other person of good judgement in making an investigation of the case and its surroundings. That is the duty of the Coroner.
2nd he says that he has held 23 autopsies, as against Mr. Bakeman 4. This bears out my contention that a doctor holds too many post mortem examinations (or autopsies) for his own experience, at the expense of the county, and that heretofore no Coroner of this County has paid for physicians fees for holding an autopsy more than $10 and in most cases $5 and the rivalry for the work at that has been noticeable. A licensed Mortician with one doctor is acceptable by the law of the state (the same as two physicians ) for holding an autopsy, so all the juggling of figures in this matter of Mr. Smith amounts to nothing. Dr. Smith was first to establish the $20 fee.
As to the number of Coroner cases he says that he has had between 170 and 175 as against Coroner Bakeman 60 or 65. Say if Dr. Smith thinks the people are going to take such figures as the records he has another guess coming. In the Herald of Oct. 26 he says 168 cases, in giving out his record as to how the cash has been distributed the total footing is 188. I would like to know at which time he is telling the truth if at either.
Also in the article he says that there has been 63 cases where a fee of $10 would have been charged by an undertaker, by a physician, a saving of $630.00 In the Herald of the 30th he says 21 cases or a saving of $210.00. The juggling of figures in this manner will never do. Mr. Smith you must get down to brass tax and quote the records as they appear at the Court house.
You may have a record in your own private office, or at your chief deputy's office on Broadway, but the natural place to get these is at the County Court House. The records there show plainly the Commissioners proceedings, where the facts and figures by a gentleman whose ability to second to none in computing figures and facts.
In regard to the lie which you insinuate, this claim was never made by me that you buried bodies at the Post House, but that your Chief Deputy did.
Thanking you Mr. Edisor for your space and the voter who wishes to know where and how the money is being spent, I am. Yours Respectfully A. R. Maulsby.

At the meeting of the town council last Monday evening, Mayor Harrington tendered his resignation, and E. E. Colvin was appointed to act as Mayor during the rest of the term which is one year. Mr. Harrington served one term and was re-elected last December but finds his duties at the mill take up the greater part of time, not allowing time enough to devote to the duties of Mayor which he thinks the office requires. No one was appointed in Councilmen Colvin's place, as the council meets but once more before the city election Dec. 5.
pioneer Harrington, Herbert
Local and Personal - Mr. Herbert Harrington, the heavyweight pioneer of Marysville, and his mother sail on the Str. Governor, from Seattle, Nov. 22nd for Long Beach CA. Mrs. Harrington will spend the winter in Southern California returning in the spring. This is her second visit to the land of flowers and sunshine, as she spent last winter there and returned greatly recuperated in health. Mr. Harrington, who will accompany his mother on the voyage, has been enjoying several weeks vacation, owing to an injured hand received in grinding a saw at the mill. Mr. Harrington has always posed as an old seadog, and recounts with much pride his many perilous sea voyages in the worthy launch Beatrice, and many the times has he related the story of that hazardous trip, when he w\as navigator, and Field and Noble the crew, steered that worthy craft over the treacherous sands in the Georgia Straits and landed safe in the harbor of Lulu Islands much to the relief of all concerned. While Mr. Harrington has received unfavorable weather reports from the weather bureau, still he expects this past and valuable experience to carry him safely through and afford him a pleasant voyage.
