have agreed to recommend to tho council
tho dismissal of all the present police

out of the fact that officers, to obtain foes
have been loo quick to arrci for trivial of
fenses. To remedy this ovil it is proposed
that tho fees shall be knocked of), andlin

provides that the salary of an elected or

decreased during his term of office. To g'et
over this impediment, tbe poiico aro to be
discharged, their salaries raised, and they
re-appointed. Tho question is: "Will the

serious cast of countenance, danced with
lively seriousness, as the caller cried tho

their arms, rushed from ono end of the

there sat the two sorious fiddlers on the
