Polic Ouoanizatiok. To suggest re
forms in thepolico organization ofthocitv,
Ten whon they aro palpably demanded by
obvious shortcomings, seems to bo "love's
labor lost." Their necessity may be ad
mitted by tho council, but thoy are never
adopted. Nevertheless, siato none but
tho bravo desorvo tho fair, and constant
drippings will wear away a stone, and tho
school book says that if ot first you don't
ucceed you must try again, and that por-
sevcranco insures success, wo intend to go
ight on in our polico suggestions liko to
tho Pontic sea, whoso icv current and com
pulsive course no'er feels rotlring ebb, etc.
And wo do now assert, that tho present or-
ganiealioii of the polico force of tho city is
very defective no organization at nil.
Each membor of tho force acts by and for
himself. II is true thero is a chief, who is
an efficient efficor, but ho does duty in tho
day timo when ho has nobody lo com
mand; nnd, Undor tho ordinances, has no
power lo dclcgato his authority to a lieu
tonant who might represent him nt night.
Wo know, the chief manngos to bo on du
ty us much as possible In tho night time,
but he cannot always be nwako.and, whilo
ho Is off, neither ono of tho force duro put
on any airs pf authority ulso tho others will
"go for him." This defect should certain
ly bo remedied. It rendors the forco in
efficient. The chief should bo authorized
to appoint a lieutenant and require him
tooboytho regulations which should
bo but Iiuvo not been laid down for tho
government of tl)c, polico .force. Thoro'
should also bo u convenient placo tho
clerk's office, for instance JoHgnatod us
headquarters, and to tho officer in charge
the furco hhould bVtcquiri'd lo' rnpbrl ot
interval. This as n precaution uirainst
tho assaults of sleepiness. W know tho
present force h wide-awake; but, if ono of
thorn wished to sleep or shirk duty, how
could ho be detected ? Each officer is his
own bosx, answerable to nobody. Chief
Myere, uIixIuMh t huvo orgariizatiuu'for
ft timo had thu forcu report to, him on a
designated street Corner in tlio open air
but tho plan did not work well on dark
and rainy niiht. Wu throw out theso
suggestions in the hope that they may do
TiibI'ihk. At about 4 o'clock yistur-
day morning, the firo bulls soundol a loud
sdurni, and citizens and firemen turned out
In grunt haste, anticipating an iminenso
conflagration. Hut they wcro happily dis-
appointed. Tho alarm was occasioned bv
an incipient fire, tho work of an inccn
diary, in thu millinery storo of Mrs. Swan
dcr. Tho Arabs got wator first, "and the
flames wero soon 'stbppod. A ratcnl hid
entered tho basotnont of tho house, and
built sj flro betwooi) tho board ceiling and
the floor or tho storo room. It hud gained
considerable headway when It was dlscov
crod by pauers by who raised tho alarm
and soon broijght the engines to tho sceno.
If.the flsmes had boen allowed fivo win
