COMMUNICATIONS.
From his Honor, the Mayor—Veto-
To the Honorable, the Common Counoil of
the City of Saint Paul:
Gentlemen: I herewith return without
my approval that certain resolution of
your honorable body, which provides that
it shall be sufficient cause for the removal
of any appointed officer of the city, if he
shall neglect or refuse to attend any meet
ing of any committee of the Common
Council after being notified to do so by the
chairman of such committee.
My reasons for such disapproval are that
Buch resolution seems to have been intro
duced as the result of a report from the
Police Committee, whice report has evi
dently been made under a misapprehen
sion of fact.
It eeems that at the meeting of Decem
ber 17th, the polioe oommittee desired the
attendance of certain police officers before
them, and caused such officers to be ver
bally notified by the City Clerk. No no
tice whatever wa3 given to the Captain,
Chief of Police or myself of such desire,
and the necessary police discipline re
quires that when it is necessary that any
officer shall be absent from his usual duties
or his beat, the Chief, Captain, or other
executive officer of the police foroe should
be informed of such fact, that their places
may be temporarily filled.
On the occasion in question, no such
notice having been given, I ordered the
men back to their duties and caused the
Chief of Polioe to wait upon the commit
tee end inform them that orders mak
ing it necessary for patrolmen to absent
themselves from their duties should be
transmitted through his office or mine.
It is hardly necessary to say that such an
application made by the police com
mittee or any other committee to this offioe
wiU be promptly attended to and their
wishes oarried ont, and inasmuch as the
only complaint in tnis matter seems to be
sgainst the executive it is hardly fair that
a rule of this character should be enacted
againBt all appointed officers of the oity
who as far as I can observe are without
fault in the matter.
This resolution, if of any «ffect at all,
would apply to the Board of Public Works,
the Work House Commissioners, and the
Board of Fire Commissioners, as well as to
the Chief and Captain of Police; besides
this resolution makes no provision for any
excuse, a mere neglect to appear before
the Committee is made absolute cause for
discharge.
I can hardly think that your honorable
body can desire such a resolution to be
come obligatory upon reflection as to its
posible effects, and the more so as I can
not understand, nor have I been advised
of any condition of things whioh seems to
call for it.
I have the honor to also return to your
honorabe body, without my approval, an
other resolution, which prohibits the pay
ment of any salary to any appointed offi
cer who may have to be oonfirmed by the
council until his confirmation.
The only persons materially affected by
this resolution, are the members of the
police force, and the result of this resolu
tion would be to cripple the efficiency of
tho force very materially. Vacancies are
constantly occuring in the poliee force by
resignations, removals and ether causes.
With the present force of men we cannot
afford to permit a vacancy to continue for
any length of time, and the proper
polioing of the oity requires va
cancies to be instantly filled when
they occur, ana the appointee has to go on
duty at once, either on day or night patrol;
as the appointments have to be confirmed
by the council, and as of late every ap
pointment is referred to the Committee on
Police, who cannot make their report un
til a subsequent meeting of the Counoil, it
follows that the patrolmen cannot be con
firmed for a period ranging from three
weeks to a month after their appointment;
in the mean time they are doing polioe duty,
and if under this resolution they should
fail to be confirmed they would receive no
compensation for the servioes they had per
formed in the interim. It should hardly
be expected that men should f a asked to
do severe and necessary duty for a month
and then receive no pay for
it, and the public interests require
that all vacancies should be kept filled and
the appointees put on duty at onoe. No
such system has ever been adopted in the
oity, nor has the same ever been considered
necessary, and its imm effects would
either be a gross injustice to the persons
who might happen to be appointed or a
failure to place an appointee on duty un
til after he had been confirmed by the
Counoil, whioh would be exceedingly det
rimental to the public interests.
Upon the subject of police appoint
ments I take the liberty to inform your
honorable body that no person is appoint
ed on the polioe force unless with the con
currence of the Chief and Captain of Po
lioe; that the applicant is required to
make a written application, stating his
name, age, residence, period of residence
in this city, condition as to being married
or single, and is also required to pass a
mciioal examination; that snch applica
tion, together with all recommendations
a-id information concerning the applicant,
is on file in this office, and
accessible to your honorable body or
any committee who may desire to inspect
them.
All of whioh is respectfully submitted.
C. D. O'Bbien, Mayor.
Dated, Jan. 5, 1884.
Communication accepted. The resolu
tions referred to reconsidered —yeas 11 —

Also,
West St. Paul Levee —
To the Honorable, the President and Com
mon Council of the City of St. Paul.
Gentlemen: I herewith transmit for
yonr consideration a communication from
the Honorable Secretary of War relative to
the Congressional Appropriation for the
West Side Levee. It is very apparent that
the Department will not proceed to ex
pend the appropriation under the present
legislation and it is desirable that our
Senators and Members of Congress be re
quested to procure such legislation as
will definitely require the speedy expendi
ture of the sum appropriated for the pur
pose for which it is intended. I have the
honor to request that you will take suoh
action as the condition of this matter re
quires.
