PAY OF THE POLICE.
Several well known gentlemen ppent
an hour or more yesterday discussing
the subject of increased pay tor our
policemen. Two of them figured what
eaidi man gets per nv>nth, provided he
makes full time, or in other words,
stands duly every day or night In the
month. The amount is very small, and
then said they take from that the cost
of their uniforms, and the many chari?
table and other objects they are called
upon to subscribe to, and It lessens
their pay very materially.
The com luslon reached was that
there was not a pollci man on the force
who averages $l.fi0 per night, if that
much, "clear of limbs and knots," as
these gentlemen expressed It. It Is un?
derstood that an effort will br? made to
get the proper city authorities to look
more deeply Into this matter.

James O. Shannon and Robert V. Tay?
lor were the three members present.

nan to recucst Mayor Balrd to set one
afternoon of the present week for the
purpose of inspecting the police force,
to inquire into nnd understand the
nerd"? of the men In the way of cloth?
ing and paraphernalia for the coming
summer, which His Honor will probably
do.
