The committee on police, jail and lire
department met at the Council Chamber
last night to hear the evidence in the
case ol Police Offlocis Sargent and Mc
Carthy, who were suspended by the
Mayor on Thursday last on a charge ot
" direlectiou ol duty," The attendance
of citizens to witness the ttiut was Urge,
and a number of the members of the
Council were present. The evidence
against the otllc-rs wa, not what might
have been expected under the cir
cumstances : and although the com
mittee adjourned without taking a
vote on the guilt or innocence of the
otlkers, It was the opinion ot nearly
all present that the charges were
not sustained, and there is but little
doubt that the committee will so report.
Several witnesses testified that (be ularm
was given promptly, and that the olScers
were the only persons on the ground
whea they arrived there. Officer Mc
Carthy In bis statement said that in keep

Heavy losses In the pork line have been

that Joint meat judiciously handled and
well salted will not spoil in any kind of
