mm M CLASH WITH HOMO Estimates Body Op posed to Giving Lee way On Salaries moneyljpurs MEN, HE SAYS Honorable Mention Doesn’t (Set Results, He Insists The board of Mtlmttu 1m dead set afainst a I lowing Polio* Con miMtonor Coutena any la*way in la creasing th* salaries of hi* man on a m«m system. and WeduestUjr told tha police department haad that ha •hould conform to th# ordinance of the common council allowing the pa trolmen |IOO a year increaae during the flrat three yeara of their aer* vie*. Mai Koch, city treaaurer and one of the eetimator*. suggested to the police commissioner that he esiab liah a ayatem of giving the men hon orable mention for good work, and to increaae aalariea only on the flrat of each flaral year "Honorable mention didn't build up the Ford Motor company,” waa the commissioner's somewhat heat ed retort. "Honorable mention doesn't get reaulta. The Ford Motor company paid the money and got the results That la what I want In the police department.” Richard Undsey, city clerk, and Mr. Koch couldn't understand why the police department should be al lowed leeway In salary matters not delegated to other city depnrtments. Mr. Lindas), in particular, stated that the board should take up each item In the police budget separately, and did not believe that the appro priation should be allowed as a lump sum to be expended as the police commissioner saw flt. ”1 sec no the estima fora should accii to know how the money appropriated for tbe police department la spent as long as we get the reaulta," said Commissioner Cousens “I want some means of curbing crime In Detroit, and I see the beat method in the pian that 1 have suggested both to the couucil and to your body. The difference between the minimum and mailraum salaries of the patrolmen is wo email it,.* i unable to understand »h) t mr uiMiv of estimates should even consider the Ptiilf, "A good !>atrolman should be paid for prevenilng crime, no matter how b-ng he has served on the force I m,i nt to furnlah the men sn incen live for inod work, and the salary promotion is the best way to fur noh it. ' My plan won't cost the cltiten* any more, and they will gat more lor iheir money." "if a man doesn't do his work properly, why don't you Are him?” was Mr. Lindsay's question to the rom mission er. "I do not belter* in Arlug men” •aid the police head. "Sometimes patrolmen don't develop In the Arst year. If they are M per cent men. ihey always get another chance” The estimators sought to deter mine whether a resolution adopted hy them and sent along with the budget to the council would curb any intent lon of the police commie stoner to carry out his own salary plan.

DETROIT TIMES WAR WILL ROTAFFECT BUSINESS Country On Solid Financial Basis, Say Local Bankers $7,000,000,000 LOAN NOT DISTURBING Can Be Easily Cared For By Banks, It’s Declared America’s entry Into the world war will have no early effect up«*n the country's Ananclal structure, and the withdrawal of MM>,OOO of the youths of the land for flghting pu• - pcses, as proposed in the general staff plan, will not weaken the ir. dustrlal strength of the nation to any marked extent. That is the opinion of Deircit hankers who have been following the war situation cioaelv Boalnesn conditions and Ananclal resource of the nation are now "top-notch," t». use their term, and. they main tain, there Is no reason to believe that they will be otherwise for some t<me. even with the government *>ro posing a war loan of f7,000.000.©<H» which unquestionably will be Ana need by the national banks of the country. One banker said: "With the government’s course not yet deAnltely outlined. Its arm. and navy program still incomplete and the Ananring of the war still tj be determined upon, I consider It exceedingly difficult at this tlm»‘ ko predict what business and Indus tr.al conditions will obtain at the end of the present year. "The Aoatlng of the $7.000.000.0<h> bond issue will have no apparen effect Anancially That has been demonstrated in England and France, where !t has been shown li.at the hanking resources have doubled since the outbreak of th* war " Liquidation of securities will be one of the results following the m* tion’s participation in the war. in the opinion of another banker. Tr European countries this slao has p-oven true. * * i Come what mav the banking In ti rests believe that the nation is lu * mate of absolute Ananclal and industrial preparedness, and thal .
