Patrick Lynch, driver of the auto
patrol. Is to be relieved of that duty
and placed on the street as a patrol
man. After a discussion "of two mis
haps which btieil tne car wmle
1 'river Jujnth was at the 'wheel, the
three members ot tne Pplice Bourd '
present at the meeting lust evening
concluuea that another unver - had
better be appointed. It was left with
t resident Hill ot the loard and riu-
r-f rlntenucnt Birmingham to arrange,
for the asstKnment of another driver. 1
President Hill said last evening the'
choice would be one of three. I'u- .
trolman Dallwig's chances ar . the .
best of the three. Commissioner
James J. Hurley-was absent.
President Hill said he had consult
ed with the city attorney about the t
legality of taking .Driver Lynch from
the patrol and putting, him On the'
street as a regular patrolman. The
answer from the city attorney was
that It was within the pv. wer of the j
commissioners to do so.
James P. Kelly of: 142 Hanover
street, foreman for the Vincent Bros.
Co. was elected a special patrolman
last evening but was hot sworn In.
It was learned when the usual Ques
tions were put to hlra that he was
not a voter. Mr. Kelly has lived here
for 22 years. President Hill will look
further Into the law and if Mr. Kelly
is eligible President Hill will swear
him in without waiting for another
meeting. If he cannot be sworn in,
his election will be Invalid. He gave
as a reason for not being made a
voter that he had been too sick to

request of Major Hurley who was not j

left on the table for a future meet
ing. A sliding curtain will be placed!
on ine rear oi tne auto-patrol to pro
tect the -patrolmen from the dust
which rushes into the car on a windy
dusty day. Commissioner Kershaw
proposed the plan.
Another attempt was made to .have
an extra man at police headquarters
so that the driver of the auto-patrol
would not have to mo ot alone on a
call. Nothing was done - about it
nowsver because of the lack of men.
Tne commissioners have been trying
w gei mis extra man at headquarters
