Columbia, Oct 4.?The police department
was todav taken from Mayor L.
A. Griffith and placed under Councilman
E. M. DuPre by the city council
in session in a meeting which lasted
over an hour. The change is effective
immediately. The resolution calling
for the change was introduced by
Councilman C. M. Asbill and adopted
by a vote of 3 to 2, the affirmative votes
being cast by Councilmen C. M. Asbill,
E. M. DuPre and M. M. Rice. Mayor

The mayor was placed in charge of
the electrical department and chosen
a member of the city school board, j
City council will hold a special meeting
tomorrow for the purpose of "conferring
with the citizens' committee!
relative to the charges against the
mayor of disorderly conduct on September
18," according to the resolution
calling for the meeting, which was in
truuuuea uy councilman l^urre ana
unanimously adopted at a meeting o?
that body this morning.
Text of the Resolution.
The resolution changing control of
the police department in its entirety
"Resolved: Whereas, in the judg- j
ment of council it is necessary to the !
iiiterest of the city of Columbia, and
especially to the police department
thereof that a ,change be made in the j
councilman superintendent of said de-'
partment; therefore be it, resolved
'That Ernest M. DuPre be, and is here- j
by, assigned to the council superin-1
tendency of the police department in j
the place of L. A. Griffith, to take ef-;
Mr. Asbill moved that "L. A. Griffith >
he elected a member of the city school
board and assigned the electrical department
in the place of E. M. DuPre,"
read the minutes of the city clerk, G.
F. Cooper. The minutes also record
*>?at Councilman DuPre said he wanted
the question settled, and not that he
wanted the police department. This
was ascribed as his reason for favor?no
tv.p change. None of the other
eouncihnen are quoted in the minutes.
The minutes of the meeting state
briefly that the reason for the vote of
the mayor and Mr. Keenan against the
change of the council head of the police
department is that the mayor is
to be investigated by the citizens' committee
and that the resolution is premature.
Mayor Griffith had no comment to
make on the action of council.
The chief of police was empowered
under the DuPre resolution to summons
before the meeting Tuesday afternoon
such persons as the citizens'
committee may direct.
Councilman Asbill introduced a resolution
providing for a stenographer
to take down the proceedings. Both
resolutions were carried unanimously.
Mayor Griffith convened the meeting
at 10 o'clock with a full membership
of council. He said the meeting was
originally called for Friday morning at
11 o'clock for the announced purpose "
of considering the remitting of fines..
The mayor said he wanted .Councilman '
Keenan present and waited until 11:30.'
No meeting was held because council.
could not be gotten together. The'
mayor said, in referring to the meet-.
ing, that if the purpose was to exceed \
the scope of the original call and the
committee wa? to start the investigation,
he would ask for a continuance
on account of the absence of his attorney,
E. J. Best, who was engaged in
The mayor said: "Personally I am
ready at any time, provided I am given
a reasonaoie notice to anow me iu get
witnesses. No one in Columbia is more
anxious than I to have the investigation."
There were about twenty-five per-1
sons present in addition to the councilmen.
Anderson Clarkson, of the committee
of citizens, said th? committee
had decided to act as one body, and
that he had been chosn as spokesman.
He said the committee wanted to collect
certain data and prepare for the
duties. He suggested that the matter
of calling witnesses be transmitted
through the chief of police to give the
summons the stamp of authority, as
' - ^ xu ~ 11 +*n n
witnesses migni ignore me can u; mc
citizens' committee. j
.The committee retired to confer and
the announcement was -soon forthcoming
that 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon [
was agreeable, and the decision was
embodied in the DuPre resolution
By a vote of three to two city council
adopted a resoiuuon laiung num mc
hands of the mayor or any other member
of council the power to remit fines '
imposed by the police recorder. The '
resolution was carried on the vote of
ifs author, Councilman DuPre. and
Councilmen As bill and Rice. Mayor
Griffith and Councilman Keenan opposed
The action of council was at an executive
session following an earlier
session at which the citizens' committee
appeared. Tiie discussions at
an executive session are not recorded
by the clerk and only the formal resolutions
or ordinances and the action
thereon are available.
The action taken in e\e. utive session
as shown in the minutes, removes
from the mayor the righi to remit fines,
and places the authority .'n city council
alone; that in the future ro sentences
be suspended or cases dismissed without
an order from council.
The resolution as reproduced from
the clerk's minute book follows:
"Be it resolved, That her^.fter the
city clerk and treasurer shall make no
refunds of any money whatsoever, except
bv order of council.
"Be it further resolved, That the police
department be notified that no
cases docketed may be dismissed; no
sentence of the recorder's court suspended,
nor any fines remitted, suspended
or reduced without an order
"Mr. DuPre move that the reasons
for voting no by Mr. Keenan and Dr.
Griffith be written in the minutes, and
in favor of this motion the vote was
unanimous. The minutes vontain the
information that Mr. Keenan voted 'no'
because the mayor will be investigated
by a committee of citizens, and he
thinks his resolution premature."
