Ciiiktok Police. A lirisk nltack is
bolng mado upon City Marshal Mcllalo,
and a determination to oust Llm from liii
position has been mnnlfostrd by ono or
two members of tho city council. Tho
loader of tho attack Is Aldormnn Nollls.
who has a double object In' view. He
hates Mcllalo personally and desires to
aocuro Jlacs piaco fur Mr. Oossman,
his brothor-ln-law. W II do tint ilMrnt
Aldorman Nollis has n right to seek his
vongeanroand tho advantage of his friends
and rolativos at th'o oxponso .of his ono
mios ; but in doing thla ho has no right
to attempt to blackon an honost man's
character. It wo Know anvthimr with
what wo consider absoluto knowledge, it
is wiai iiicuaio is a porfoctly honost man:
nnd Alderman Nollis li as no rnniinri in lm.
llovo him anything else; but Alderman
Nollis is assuring olhor momborfl of tho
council that Mcllalo is dishonest, and
charges that ho took money from a gam
bling tablo from which ho had frightened
tho players, and put it in his pockot. Tho
fact is, Mcllalo, acting undor tho ordin
ances, mado a dciceut upon a negro gam
bling don a month or two ago; tbo pluyeia
ran; Mac capturod tho gambling implo
meats and about SI In nionoy. Ho iniino
diatoly rcportod verbally to tho mayor
and mado a written report to tho council,
asking tho authority to turn tho nionoy
over to tho city treasury. Tho council
actod upon tho roport and accepted the
monoy which .Mao paid at
once to tho trcasuror, taking his
recoipt for tho amount. Aldorman Nollis
waa presont at tho mooting, hoard tho. re
port road, voted to rccoiro tho monoy;
and now with deliberation ho tells tbo
now mombors of thu council that Mac
gobbled tho money and ncvor reported it
to tho city council I "Wo boliovo Mr.
Nollis to bo a prejudiced man; wo did
not boliovo bo wns ino.in ; but wo aro
called to think that a man who will thus
publish a falso roport a roport ho must
know to be falso is not only prejudiced
Anothor objection Aldorman Nollls has
to Mcllalo is, that Mac attonds tho moot
Inga of the city council. Tho alderman
says McUale is careful to bo prosonl at tbo
meetings to prevont mombora trom dis
cussing his charnctor. Tho aldorman, wo
rogrot to say, adds ignoranco to his other
shortcomings. Tho ordinances require
tho marshal to be prosont ut nil meetings
of tbo city council. Aldormnn NelUs
not only doos Mcllalo un injuBtico to ro
port it falso chargo against him, but in
bis ignoranco tho aldorman sooks tosccuro'
tho marshal's condemnation bocauso ho
porforms bis duty. It is a lamentnblo
fact that when prejudico is unltod with
malico and ignoranco It loads men into
stupidities and falsehoods.
Wo boliovo wo exprosa tho genoral
opinion of our bost citir.ona when wo say
McUalo lias been nil excellent ollicer. Ho
has always dono his duty faithfully. Wo
know cortain inon aro opposod to him
wish to crowd him from his position. He
has onforcod tho ordinancos, and this
fact hat raised him up onomios. Not
a kono tablo nor a faro bank lift 3 turned a
dishonest penny since ho has boon marshal
and the gamblers hato him; he has mado
dissents upon bawdy house, and tholr
frionds, thoso who pntroni.o thorn, do not
like Mcllale; ho hns colloctcd every
liconso, nnd many who have horotoforo
escapod tho payment of liconsca wish to
get him rotirod; ho hiu pounded hogs and
horses, and hog and borso owners want
him out; and so on til libitum. Hut theso

For a fullaudcomidotc staleineutoffiiian
ci's of the city, on thu llr.t day of April,
A. I). Ifc'l, I respccttully refer you to the
HtycoinptrolIcr'Hrcpoi therewith submitted.
It embraces a statement for tlie mouth
of March 1S71, and al-o a full statement of
tbo fiscal year ending April lt,li?71
While wet havo oxcsniicd In the aggregate
UilO hundred and llfty-two dollars and
eiglity-tevuu o jnls the amount niiproptlated,
II you give us credit lor ipeciai asseimentu
collected and yet to bo collected for ilde
walks, you will llnd that we aro within tho
appropriation li out $2,U'j0to $3,000.
Uentlcmen. belnro leaving this part of my
remarks, there Is ono matter 1 vvili to bring
specially before tho council and which was
ntroiigly reconuuonded by mo to the last
council. My rocommcndatloii was to llnd
all of tho outstanding city scrip uud make it
parable iu one, two aud three years, coUnet
lug each year tlio amount necessary to bo
collected to pay principal and interest. One
objection In tho way at that tiuio wag the ten
per cent. Interest bearing -crip. Now that
that lias been done away with and no more
Interest allowed on new scrip issued, I think
it would be sound pulley to rind what Is out
staiiding.nnd tlieiikcep within the appropri
ations nnd l--uc no more each year than can
bo taken up w Kb taxes, licence-, etc. Moth
lug iu my judgment would ho more nitbscr
vleut to tho best Interests of the cltv. 1 trust
tho committee on Unani ti will civu this mat
ter their earliest attention, and at the same
time give it that due comddcratiuii that this
11 has been Niiggcstcil to mn by sotno mem
bers oftho city council to dispense with the
services ot tho street superintendent and
city comptroller. While 1 am in favor of re-'
during tho expenses of tho city, 1 full to sec
whoro tho city cuu be lunch benefited by
dispelling with theso olllciais. The mem
hern of tbo committee on streets must hear
in mind that tbo most of tho work perform
ed bvtho street hUPorinteudant must neces
sarily be pcl'foriiK'! by.theui If ho Is dispensed
with. And an the city comptroller Is tho
ptirclnisii' agent of the elly, under '.the
orders of tho different committees, the work
performed by him must bo performed by
somo one else if ho Is' dispensed with. Thu
question naturally loliows: AVho will do it?
Tho city treasurer's and city clerk's duties
are prescribed by ordinance; and if you re
quire incmiouo more vvorKincy wiiipromtn
v require pay to correspond with theadltlou
i'l labor lierlorruoil. Thu nronrietv of tho dis
missal of tho city comptroller Is iu my Judg
ment not best, ito privato lirra in t Ids city
or elsewheio doing the amount of business
dono by thu cltv, could or would dispense
with such an ollicer or clerk. However if
tlm counu 1 desires to change the ordinance
oftho city so aj to dispense with the services
of thoso ollicer-, I wild boas vvtlliug to give
it a trial as they are. Ocntluiuen, the health
oftho city has been good during tlio last
yoar. We havo not. Iicen Visited by any
disease in un epidemic form as some of our
sinter cities have. We havo certainly been
mercifully dealt with and 'for which we
owo tho deepest gratitude to tho ruler ef all
things tor Ills caro over us in times of trial,
and of death, The expenditures of the
board of health havo been small compared
with tho previous year, and 1 am willing to
eoneedo a duu share" of tho credit of the
samu to the precaution taken by thu board
of health of Is--'. I bcllevatliu means used
b them had much to do with tho reduction
of small-pox cases, and the general vaccin
ation Iu 1V72-;', together with tho rigid en
t'orceniont or tho oidlnauco prohibiting the
landing of mi) caies of contagious diseases
has hud a vcr'v salutary effect.
Tho police iorcu of tlio city have done all
they possibly could do to keep a quiet turn
ordorlv city", aud while there may bo Just
eiuo of complaint I cannot at the present
tlmo sen where matter, could bo much
changed for thu better. , ,
It matters not to mo personally who is at
tbo bead nt the pollca lorce ol tho city so
long as howlll do his duty and oboy orders.
Let him do the very best ho possibly can do
and still thorn will lie some persons who will
mako complaints. The olllcor, In my opfu
Ion, w ho will pleaso all parties cannot bo a
good ollicer. Tbo ulan who docs hla duty
fourlossly ami without favor ia as sure to
nmko cnumlcs as the sparks to fly upward.
If any serious objection cuu be brought
ugninst any of tho present poller, loreo by
any class ol good, law abldlug dozens, lam
willing to hear them, and to that end give
