Tsse Conflict Between the Police
AeUbarltlet and C ity Cost ell.
Umoial to nx a.rriaL.1
('uaxtanoooa, Tknn., February 17.
The conflict of authority betweeu
the Police Commission ani City Coun
cil reached a crisis to-day by'the nj
pointnient of the clerk aiid master as
receiver to .take charge' of the police
fluids of the city and pay the police
on the warrant of the commission.
The trouble between the two bodies
has been,in progress three months.
The Police Commission is a Demo
cratic body appointed bv the Gov
ernor. The City Council fs Republi
can, elected by'the people.. The City
Council required the commission to
fiubmit pay-rolls before appropriations
would be made to pay the police.
This they refused to do", and merely
drew their warrants, which the
treasurer declined to pay. Mandamus
suits were filed and applied, and dur
ing that litigation nearly three months
iassed and the police received no pay.
To-day Chancellor Nixon granted the
application of the commission for a re
ceiver to take charge of the police
funds and pay the police, and en
joined the City Council from with
holding any funds for the pav of the
police, and also enjoined the Hrst Na
tional Bank, where the City Treasurer
deposits, from honoring his draft for
jlice funds. It is thought that the
litigation will result in the final, over
throw of the present city charter.

popular, ami this bar is anxious to see
