llyrues' denouncement of the Police
Hoard and the charges that ho waB
hampered iu the prefortnauce ol Inn
duties by the commissioners, also
caused cousiderable talk, Kvcry
body is wondering now what will
bo the outcome ot the present state
of all'airs in this department.
Ho declined to say whether or
not, as is understood, his letter to
tbo Mayor ooutained a formal ap?
plication for retirement to tbo Po?

body or not, as Mr. Strong pleases,
t he Superintendent came uowu to
his otlice at the iisuul hour today.
He received during tho forenoon
many cullers who came to extend
their good w:>hes, and all expressed
the hope tl at iie would continue to

"Well" said he, "we expected
that wo would bo criticised whether

and if we aro criticised adversely
it will not bo unfair, but unjust.
Hyrnes was asked to account lor his
Wealth aud ho did so.
"There was uot u bit of evidence

"If any one knew anything con?
