Tho mayor and city attorney assert
that tho mayor, undor tho ordinances, has
no right lo suspend a police constable, no
matter how inefficient cr dishonest ho may
be. They claim that tho power was taken
from tho mayor by an ordinance passed
during ex-Mayor Wilson's term repealing
an oruwanco approved by ox-Mayor
Obcrly. This position is untenable. Tho
authority to suspend has never been re
pealed, and is explicit. Section 30 of tho
codified ordinances provides that "for any
direliction of duty he the mayor may
suspend any police constablo or jailor from
office until tho noxt meeting thereafter of
tho city council, and appoint nnothor in
his stead; and if such suspension is con
firmed, tho pay of such officer shall ccaso
from tho time of such suspension."
Wo have concluded to not report tho

crushed out all our baso ball enthusiasm.

It taught us that there is mnny u slip be
