Mahon and Michael Lynch were dismissed from the city police force by order of M4-or J. A Dlnnie. J. P. Weber and Theodore Hansen have been appointed In their places, and will at once so on duty.

Formal charges to this effect were preferred by residents of the city. The action taken by the mavor in this case following the dismissal of C'apt. Joseph Haper, last week, is Indi cative of his determination to make a thorough "clean-up" of inefficiency in the department. He takes the position that the de partment is not to be used for politi cal purposes or position even thereon as rewards for political services. Any man who desires to hold a position on the police force hereafter must "de liver the goods." This applies. t\ Mie new, men on the force, as well the former incum bents.

Mr. Leahy was only ajble to seize an overcoat and a pair of overshoes, and Mrs. Leahy a small bundle of rlothea. The fire started presumably from an overheated furnace and had gained a big start when the occu pants of the house awakened. There waa no hope of saving the building. It waB completely destroyed togeth er with all contents, a total loss of over $4,000. Insurance to the ex tent of 2,500 was carried with the Charles F. Ellis agency. Thinly clad, Mr. and Mrs. Leahy made their way to the James Me larvie home about a mile distant, through twenty degrees below zero weather, whfcre they secured clothes and shelter. The farm residence was built a number of years ago by J. E. Mat ne.V, and was purchased by Mr. Leahy about four years ago. LIVE NEWS NOTES FROM W1LLIST0N Willlston, N.
