seek to put the packers under strict

The testimony brought out a state
ment by Judge Lamb that it would.
be well for the persons responsible
for the administration of the police
department to study up on the
metropolitan police law.
Golubin, according to records on
file in the city c:erk's office, which
were produced and read in court by
City Clerk Irwin, was appointed to
the police force January 10, 1916.
According to police records shown
in court this morning and verified
by Detective Frank White, Edward
Morrissey was appointed January 18,
1 910, Barry Cronin was appointed
May 10, 1916, Bernard King was ap
,ointed May 30, 1916, and Ton.
Walsh was appointed June 2, 1916.
Yet N. M. Golubin, who was ap
pointed previous to the appointments
of all of the other four officers and
was therefore entitled to priority
under the metropolitan law, accord
ing to his Complaint, was laid off in
the bunch of 20 men who were sac

Nick Golubin was laid off and is
still off, it was shown, while Ed
Morrissey was not laid off in that
hunch of 20, and neither was Cronin.
And yet those two were appointed
after Golubin. It was shown that
Morrissey has since been discharged
and Barry Cronin has resigned, but
that Tom \Valsh and Bernard Kiug
are at present in active duty on the
police-according to the testimuo:ny
of Frank White.
The evidence introduced seeks to
indicate that a conspiracy on the
part of the police chief and the
police lieutenant, concurred in by
former Mayor Lane, was the cause
of Golubin's troubles.
Golubin was disliked by Murphy
and Dwyer, it appears. - They hal

After working 10 months on the
force, Golubin, according to his own
testimony, was laid off for seven
days. After going back he worked
for 24 days. Then one night he has
hot words with Dwyer. Lieutenant
Dwyer ordered him to turn it his
tools and get out, according tO the
testimony introduced this morning.

work and wanted to work. Dwyer

this morning, that Mayor Lane

because "Chief Murphy just doesn't
