Holmes, of the bo i~u ot palate commissioners, and. unless i i.e chit t'V friends can prevail upon h.m in the meaiiiime to withdraw It, tue resignation will be acted upon hjf tl.e commissioners at tlieir regular me. tiuK tomorrow night. While not altogether unexpected bf BOena of the thief*! more intimat.' iriono's. the news that the resigu.i t ion was in the hands of Chairm:.:i Holmes created great surprise and it ens [raarajfj discussed in ataatrlpnl ? ncles yesterday. On all sides thete ?Ten expressions of regret thai the chief bad taken this action and BB> mediately there was talk of Balking an effort to prevail upon him to re? consider the matter. Resented Criticisms. Chief Reynolds did not discuss Ilia Bsettef yesterday and the exact reaaooa tor his action are not kn iwn at this time. However, it is under? stood that the chiet was incensed by tiie at*ttea of members of the conti oil in trying to cut down the police lon e aas] reduce his salary and by un? favorable criticisms thai have been made of tbe chief and the department daring the past few months. The i hlef has been chafing under these criticisms far sometime and the mat ti r was brought to a head by the at? tempt to impair the effli iency ot the police force by reducing the iminb. r ? i fntrotaaan and sergeants. Chairman Holmes, of the DatfcO board, also declined to discuss the matter yesterday afternoon, saying that he did not think it would be codrteoaa to the other commissioners to make a statement before the re? signation bad been laid before the I oard as a body. In all probability the ?commissioners will try to induce the i biet to reconsider the matter tomor? row night. Wcnts Old Position Again. It is understood that Chief Rey? nolds desires that the commissioners accept his resignation as chief and giro him tiie |?ost of detective ser? geant, which he till*.I for many years and which is now held by Sergeant Henry llridgors. Detective work ap? peals to the chief as no other kind of work does and in that he would not be brought into contact with the public it. an official way as head ot tbe department. The reiKirt that The chief desired to be made detective sergeant attain was discussed by the policemen yesterday afternoon ami last night ami naturally there was much specula? tion as to who might succeed iiim as i hief in the event that his resigna? tion was accepted, .Sergeant T. A. Mitchell being the ranking sergeant. Iiis name was mentioned by some of the officers as the probable new chief. Held Office Five Years.
