AS NIGHT CAPTAIN
Council Holds Up Mayor's Nomi
nation of Luke E.
CONFIRM THREE PATROLMEN
City Will Accept Park Subscription;
City Attorney protests Against
Capt. Luke E. Hemenway was nomin
ated last night by Mayor McCaskrin j
for the position of night captain of po
lice, but for some reason, best known
to the aldermen, the nomination was
laid over to the next meeting, on mo
tion of Aid. Robbins. Capt. Hemenway
is a man who has proven himself com
petent in his positions in the army in
the service of Uncle Sam as a member
of Company A. serving in Porto Rico,
in the Spanish-American war, and there
is no particular reason for doubting his
ability in the capacity of a city officer.
Sonif All ItiKht.
No reason was given for passing the
nomination over, but there seemed to
be an understanding among a few of
the aldermen that any new nomination
should be held up. This was shown by
Aid. O'Connor's motion to lay over John
Kinney's nomination. When he learned
that he was a man who served under the
former administration, he withdrew his
motion, and information was asked
upon the nomination of Charles Sexton
and Sidney Pearson, as to whether they
were already on the force or not. Kin
ney. Pearson and Sexton were nomin
ated for patrolmen and were unani
.--rpt I'ark ul-rlt ion.
The question with reference to the
park subscriptions, which was laid on
the table for one week, was disposed of
though a resolution by Aid. Anderson.
It was provided that the subscriptions
should be accepted, but that none of
the council's appropriation of Jl.Oin)
should be used until all of the sub
scriptions of $1,200 had been paid to
t'itjr Attorney ProtentM.
When the ordinance for the improve
ment of Fifth avenue from Eighteenth
to Nineteenth street by asphalt paving
came before the council. City Attorney
Olson entered a protest. His charges
were that the council had already
adopted two or three such ordinances
authorizing work to be done by private
contract without first submitting them
for his inspection. Aid. Anderson an
swered with the statement that several
matters which of necessity were in his
hands were delayed beyond a reason
able time and that when there was
reason for immediate action the alder
men could not be biamed for taking a
course that would so result. The city
attorney was requested to submit his
protest in writing, which he did. After
it was read by the clerk, the aldermen
proceeded to amend it to suit them
selves, instead of putting it on the rec
ords or rejecting it as a whole, and
after it was satisfactorily amended by
striking out the important parts, the
remainder was laid iion the table on
motion of Aid. Oberg.
Mayor McCaskrin presented a mes
sage with reference to various matter::
in connection with the waterworks.
Among other things he recommended
the purchase of a pump of much smal
ler capacity than is now under consid
eration. and the use of a portion of
the remainder of the money in the
purchase of meters to reduce the waste
that is now prevalent throughout the
city. It was further recommended that
the city purchase a fire engine, citing
the instance in Moline recently when
a water main was broken by the pres
sure from the waterworks. The mat
ter was referred to the committee of
the whole, which will be in session
this evening for further consideration
of the pump question.

Civil cases will be the order of pro
cedure in circuit court during the next
two weeks, the criminal calendar being
taken up Oct. 30. Members of the bar
were in conference with Judge Gest
this morning with reference to the
week following the disposition of the
criminal cases, but no definite decision
was reached as to the procedure of the
court at that time. It was suggested
that it might be advisable to have a
week without a jury, for the purpose
of settling issues preliminary to trial 1
of cases. The attorneys were heard
from on the matter and the court will
decide later what he will do as to the
calling of a jury.
Murder (' Flrnt.
First on trial in the criminal list will
be the alleged murderers of Brady, the
case of William Nagel probably being
disposed of before that of the womam.
The two will not be tried together, as
they may be used as witnesses against
each other by trying them separately.
The1 woman. Josephine Collet, is ready
to fight her case with a couple of law
yers, but Nagel is still without counsel.
While it is probable that he will be the
first to answer to the charge, it is not
known whether it will lie by a plea of
guilty or trial.
