IT IS THE OL FORCE.',
Mayor Curtin Replies to the Attacks on the Present Pollee Force. I Exloept Two, They Were Left Over I From the Last Adrnin- i Ietration. And With a Few More Kiceptions They t Were All Appointed Under Oity tarshal flms. Mayor Curtin was very much dipleased E yesterday at the attacks made by the Jour nal and Herald on the present administra tion of the police department, which he gj thought were intended to belittle the new w administration of city affairs. The mayor fi pointed out the fact that with two excep- of tions the police force as it stands to-day is 01 the one that looked after the city during 0r the previous administration. These two Hd exceptions, said the mayor. are Police- H man Barrett, who took the place made oI vacant by the promotion of Joseph Calla- ea ban from the ranks to the sergeancy; and aH Policeman Carlson, who took the place of i John lBack, the ofilcer who resigned at the ge beginning of the month. Not only is it, or with these exceptions, the same force that in went through the last administration. but to the men who compose it were nearly all appointed under the marshal- a ship an ship of William Sims. Of the as policemen ca the force when M Marshal Sims took charge last year. only at four went through the administration, one of whom was the present sergeant. It is in apuarent. therefore, that the force, as now at constituted. leaving out the sergeant, the fri other three policemen who held over from la Mayor Bradford's administration, and the al two appointed by Mayor Curtin to fill ya- dr cannies, is essentially an old one. Mayor ta Curtin has been slow in making changes in P8 the police force, recognizing the fact that the public were entitled to protection, and pie that that protection could be beat given by we not making too rapid changes among the po policemen. The first vacancy which had to to be filled was that caused by Callahan's pro- on motion. It was filled by the appointment on of A. J. Barrett, a man who had been on to the police force before, and who was known dor to be competent to fill the posirion. When ras Policeman Back resigned voluntarily. hie pia place was fllret by Oscar Carlson, a repre sentative bcandinavian. whose appoint- vex ment was asked by a large element of that of nationality, she Mayor Curtin said great pressure had the been brought to bear upon him to dismiss lai, men who had been on the old force, and to car appoint others. But if the men whose die- ha, miseals were asked had been good oflicerse the and there was no other charge against them or than that they bad voted againt hio at the L ecunicipal election, he had not considered ren that suficient cause for removal. As to hal Policeman Carleon's action at the time for Policeman Scharrerbroich was shot, the of e mayor thought it was simply a Case of a po0 new man, unused to dealing with desperate but characters, becoming rattled at the tiing, and not knowing as well what conase to take as would have been expected of an old and tried oftirer. The oversight, he thought, consisted in notfeeling about the pockets of Tin the men arrestedto see it they had any weap one. Even this might be overlooked when it is remembered that the men were under arrest simply as ordinary vagrants, ue-n peoted of a robbery up town, and were not known to be wanted for such a serious of- the fense as the robbery and murder of the Bit Swede at the gas house. It is not even pa known that the men who escaped from the for officers when Polieeman Soharreabroich was shot are the same who committed the firm gas house outrage, though the fast that Yel they took such desperate chances to pre. lob vent being looked up would be taken as of an indication that they had done some thing worse than robbery. cot Since the affair of Sunday night no pains tra have been spared to run down every poasi- ten ble rumor that it was thought might lead tio to the arrest of the guilty men. ()tices hot have been sent on horseback, in teams and gre on trains to every point where parties had cnr been seen who were thought to fre be the men wanted. None of the r emore have led to to anything. The last report came in vester- fac day. A French woman living about half hit way between Lenox and East Helena, about four miles from town, reported that three e men had been in an old cabin near her place. They had come in at night but gone T away every morning. Four officers went lea out, but there were no men in sight. It is thought now that the men have separated and may have chir aged their appearance by toe purchase of different clothes from thoso they had on while here. Some think they I went to Butte, where, if they have any the friends, it would not be a difficult matter bet to conceal themselves until they could sufficiently change their arpearance to nis travel without danger of detection. It is rea believed, however, that they will be caught somewhere and some tume, now that there loe is a reward offered. Pr DRAIANCa DEMANDED THE TIME. A.
