men, von will give tills vein your careful
attention, and while I am in favor of
economy In regard lo thu expenses of the
city, I think It bad pulley to reduce
your police force below the number
named in ordinance propo-ed lo he
amended, so it will become an Inellleient
form, as it will o:iu become noied
abroad, whleli will be tut Inducement for
thieves to vllt it and commit depteda
lion. I do not believe In a polley that U
pennv wl-o mid pound fooll-h, for there
I nothing that rclh-ci more credit upon
a city government than a good, ellleleiit,
gentlemanly police force. If you pas.
thl- otilluance over mv veto it goes far
toward-, doing away with the very object
