Inugurled another of those great moves
from tbe hcirii of the people, for purity
and integrity In political life, so persist
ently kopt down by tbe selfish ambition
of political aspirants.
The candldato of our choico is eminently
a representative of thoso principles, still
cherished ln tho boarts of the people, be
cause intuitively they feel thut nations, like
individuals, must rise or full by tbo culti
vation or rejection of moral honesty and
Political dtshono9ty,for personal motives,
bus so long been tbu order of tbo day in
political life, thut tho pent-up indignation
of tho pooplo now Ilnds vent in one great
shout of welcomo from tbo pine-clad
bills of Malno to the golden shoru of Cal
ifornia, because of tho promise now her
alded of tho infusion of it newer anil purer
life into tho political atmosphere of tbo
nation. Ail parties can meet here on one
common ground, and no surer indication
s needed of tho honest motive ol our
Democratic friends than tho enthusiasm
witli which so many of thorn have already
accepted this nomination. Through a long
lifu opponent cf many of their views, aud
with tho scars of many hard-fought but
ties vol fresh, they seu at once tbu moral
forco of an honest mun in political life,
anil feel that thoy can safely trust their
interests in bis keeping. Surely thu mag
nnnimity of somn of the great lights of
this pnrty is only equaled by tbo uniiulfWIi
iitid magnanimous conduct of tho now
standard-bearer they lmvo so nobly wel
Aio wo not already in tho dawn of an
other of tbo.se great revolutions which
rniso nations iu tho scale of humanity and
leavo untold blessings to tho coming ngos?
Those conspicuous points iu tho coursu -of
timu we have no difficulty In seeing when
they bavo pnst and tlund on tho undying
record belore us, but wbilo thoy lire being
enacted wo are often douf nnd inattentive
to their great import. Thut there U some
thing more In this than tho aupcrllclul ob
server detects on the surfaco is indicated
by- tlio"deop feeling with which it nffects
all parties. Honesty and intcritv nro
brought up in bold relief in n rcprcspiita
live mnn as something to be loved and re
spected. Down-trodden nnd discarded in
tho political nrcua it nriscs again and
again at tbo demand of the people, ns
often to be laid asido by selfish and dc.ign
ing nmbitiou. Hut for nil this, I urn not
one who believes thnt the undertow
equal to the wave. If It wcro so, tbo
ocoan of life might be still if nothing is
gained by agitation. Tho very intuitions
of mankind discarded thia falncy; nnd
wo hope much now and believe tho greut
heart of tho people will right what their
over-running generosity Humbled ove
four vears ngo. Let thorn laugh who
loose; thoso who win will always laugh.

Gentlemen or the City Council:
Al thu lust joint meeting of thu Council,
on tbn 11 tli of April, the following rutolu.
tbmi, olfered by Councilman Tuylor, wuru
adopted, to wit:
JUiulttd, Thut tho comtnlttco on polico
nud J ul be, and thoy hereby are requested
and instructed, iu conjunction with tbu
Mayor, to bavu prepared and put In forco
al once, nut to oo submiueu lo ihu City
Coiificilifor Information til Its next stuted
meeting, specillo rules und regulations tor
thu uoveruinelit of thu polico forco und
jailor; that such regulations shall embrace
ilireclloiiH us to thu hours ol service, and
the locality of aervicu byi oach policemen,
the character und extent of supervision by
the chief of police, thu extent of search of
person under urrust, aud by whom such
search shall be made, and what disposition
to bu mudu of money aud property to Lo
found upon thoiii.
That audi regulations shall require the
policu constable to observe utiy defects,
injuries or breakage in sidewalks, cross
walk or strcuts, uud omissions iu lighting
street lamps ut proper limes, and io ru
port tbu satnu promptly to tho city clerk,
Unit tbu liropor iniorinatlon limy bu con
veyed by him to the proper olileurs or com
liiutec, und thu suid regulations shall g'tn-
ornlly embrucu wlmtuver will bu necessary
to ensure un enert-etlc and thorough ser
vicu by thu polieo force, except us now
regulated by oiiiinanco."
Ihee resolutions, gentlemen of the
Council, 1 havo not felt ut liberty to up
prove ; but, on the contrary, 1 iiavu been
constrained lo uisapproVu ilium for tuu
lolluwiiig reasons, among others :
first. ihu duties ol too policu consta
Mcs, us well us tbu duties of the other city
officer, can only bu pre'crlbtU by orill
nance, heu section iv, article ot the
These resolutions do not purport to pre
scribe rules for Ihu government of the police-
force, but go oven further than tbat
uud seek to require a committee of the city
council, in conjunction with the mayor, to
prcscribo tbo.u rule, when neither coun
eil. citv nor mayor have the r.cht or au
thority lo tuuku tsucn rules or regulations
without tliu enactment of an ordinance.
When thu churtur titys that tho duties
of officers shall be prescribed by ordinance,
are wo to say thut tho char
ter does not mean what it savs?
und is it clainiea that no can, not
onlv prescribe those duties by joint rciolu
turns ut tlio council, but tiiut uy n joint
resolution wo can confer upon a commit
tee or n single individual the authority to
This whole matter of prescribing the
culits of policemen, und making rule
and regulations for their government rests
with tnu city council. Seu sections .18
uud CO of urticlu 6 of tbu charter.
Tliu council can just as well delegate
to a committee, or to tliu mayor, or tiny
other man, any or all thu other powers Tt
possesses, us it can tho power concerning
tliu regulation ol tliu polico lorco.
If tho council can do till, it can nbdi
cntu ut any linio iu tavur of the committee
on police und jail, in conjunction with the
Iu tho second place, by section 40, o
ordinance No. 2, thu mnvur atone it au
thuri;cd to prescribe and establish such
regulations tor tho government of tho
polieo constables, tbe jail or jailor as hu
may think proper.
This section is thu sntnu us section 30
of thu old ordinance, and wa', liku oth
sections, perhaps, transferred Into the new
ordinances without thnt careful examina
tion which would bu given it iu cauiu
vol vini; lis logality ; and if tho languagu
quoted from it bus the least particle of val
idity, there resolutions cannot stand n
moment, for thu reiuou that tliu council
cuiiuot repeal ur amend an ordinandi by
thu passage of muro joint resolutions, nnd
according to this section 40 of urdinancu
No. 2, thu mayor, aud no ono else, Is au
thorized to muUo or prescribe such rules
or regulation, subject to the dictations
of no committee, other pursun or persons.
Thirdly. Thu requirements of these
resolutions, are nil, with one or two excep
tion, now fully provided for, or contuined
in, tin) present ordinances See sections
30 to 60 of suid ordinunco No. 2. They
embrace tho hours of service, the locality
of service, the character and extent of tho
supervision of tho Cniof of Police, thu ob
servaucu of defects iVc in tho sidewalks',
thu omissions to light tho street lamps,
Ac. Why, therefore, require a committee,
iu conjunction with thu mayor, to
rrprecritie, for the benefit of thu poll co-
men, wnm has already been luiiy and
plainly prescribed by tlio council in the
utdiuuncut of tlio city ?
Is it iiecessury to bring tboir duties
ncurer homu to the attention of tlio po
licemen than tbo ordinances bring them 7
Fourthly. Thc'u resolutions not only rc
quiru tho committee, iu conjunction with
thu muyor, to do whut they havo no right
or power to do, but push thu mutter still
further, und instead of leaving thu com
mittee, in conjunction with tho mayor,
tree to adopt such rules as thoy "may think
proper," dictatu to them whut thosu rules
and regulations should contain and em
brace, inasmuch as mo duties ot
policemen can only bu proscribed by ordi
nance, und as thu council, by tho adoption
of tlieso resolutions, seem desirous ot not
only knowing but ulso deciding what thoso
duilc, rules and regulations shall be,
why was not tlio matter referred to tbo
orduianco committee so that an ordinunco
could bo reported and adopted covering
tho wholo ground.
Finally. If otbor rules nnd regulations
for tbo govornmont of tho polico and
ailer aro necessary, besides tlioso
tuincd nud embodied in tho ordinances; if
rules and regulations will givo lionosty
where lionosty is wanting, or givo activity
wlioro lazlnoss nbounds, or confor cupabli
itlos. tact und talont not already possessed,
or, In short, will iiiuko good policemen
and jailor out of bad pollcomon and jullor,
by all means lot tlvoro bu rules nnd rogti
lations without stint or limit; but if, on
tho contrary, tho policemen and lallcr
afo possessed of common lionosty nnd nru
urdinarily active nnd capable, and thoy
aro certainly all that, thoro is no uso In
hampering them with tlio strulubt-luckot
of military riisciplino. t
At all events, if it is to bo dono, let it be
dono consistently witli tbo city charter
and ordinances, which wo are all under
obligation, I suppose, to support.
