Court Convene« on Monda/.
The May term of the Court of General
Sessions and the Superior Court will con
vene at the Court House on Monday
morning. There are no criminal cases of
importance but the Superior Court is
likely to have a long session.
Two Detective».
Iu accordance with a resolution of City
Council adopted sometime ago City
Solicitor Turner will prepare the coining
week an ordinance providing lot two
at
detectives to be appointed by the mayor.
It will be remembered that when the
matter was before Council that the
reason assigned for not granting the de
tectives was that no provision had been
made in the appropriations for their pay.
The fiscal year will end June
and
be prepared before
order to provide for their pay
appropriations are made for the coming
year. The appointment of the detectives
will no doubt be opposed on the ground
that the patrol wagon is all the expense
that should be incurred at this time. The
two detectives will probably be granted
however as their need has been demon
strated on several previous occasions.
