Captain J. T. Martin, chief of police ' of the city of Juneau did not get an ' opportunity to have his resignation 1 acted upon last evening for the reason that there was no quorum present, and his request to be relieved of the ' duties of office could not be granted ] by the City Council. Mayor C. W. Carter called the coun cilmen to order and ordered roll call. < but could not secure the required num ber on account of the absence of Councilmen Huribut, Pullen and Ged des. His honor then adjourned the , meeting until Wednesday evening at , $ o'clock. At this point in the pro- ( ceedings Mr. Martin asked to have his j resignation accepted, but was informed . by the Mayor that he could only ac- , cept and file it for action by the coun- , cil at the forthcoming meeting, in ( connection with this action Mr. Car- j ter paid Capt. Martin a nice compli ment for his conduct as an officer and , said that it was with sincere regret . that circumstances necessitated the change, but he hoped the police offi- j cer did not retain any hard or ill feel- , ing toward the council, and assured him that the council membership felt , only the highest respect for him. City Attorney Marshall added that Capt. Martin, as chief of police did not confine himself alone to the du- < ties of the office but had done- many ( things for the promotion of the moral s welfare of the city: he had gone out of the routine of his dut'es to serve j the city, and no matter how long Ju- ) neau remained a municipality, it j would never have a more consciencious and efficient officer than Capt. Mar- , tin. whose resignation had been pre sented. ( Mayor Carter then told Capt. Mar tin that he was to continue as chief of police until such time as the coun- , cil acted upon his resignation. After ; mutual thanks, the council adjourned. ? SPRING BEGINS WITH VERNAL EQUINOX TODAY Today la the first day of spring. , The vernal equinox occured this morn- t Ing at about 2 o'clock.
