Committee Investigate Charges. ,
The fire committee of the City Council
composed ot Councilmen Hinton, Par
riah and Brooks, met at the city iiall
last night for the purpose of investi
gating the charges that had been pre
ferred against Henry McGinley, chief
of the fire department, m which it was
alleged that he anpr priated for his
own use and profit certain articles the
property of the city.
From the evidence introduced there
was nothing to indicate that Mr. Mc
Ginley had misused the city's property
and the committee was thoroughly con
vinced of ihe innocnce of the accused
in regard to the alleged charges. It
will make a report to this effect at
the next regular meeting uf the Coun
cil. A number ot witnesses were in;
troduced to testify to the cnarges

J. W. Kng, a member ot the depart
ment, following an erupton amongjthe
members atfer the appointment ofMc
Ginley to the office of Chief 'several
weeks ago. At the instance of King
he was arretted on a charge of carry
ing concealed weapons, and was fined
in Police Court.
Before the Committee King testified
that he had not preferred any charges
aganst McGinley, but stated that a
portion of a load of hay purchased
from Joe Housgton had been disposed
of to J, M. Flanagan, through Mc
Ginley andjthat a set of harness be
longing to the department, at his in
stance had been sent to Mr. M. J. Mur
phy. It developed from the testimony of
Flanagan that the hay referred to had
heen purchased by the city from Hous
ton and when it became known that
only about one half of it could be used
by the department. McG nley prevailed
on Flanagan to purchase the remain
der which he did, paying Houston for
According to the testimony of Mr.
Murphy the harness was loaned him
by McGinley for a few davs and that
it had been returned to the depart
ment. Other witnesses examined
were Chas. Thomas, city electrician
and Ed Walsh, an employe of the city
