Council met In special session
yesterday afternoon, Mayor Cohn
in the chair, to investigate tlie
charges preferred by ex-offloef
Trlbolet against Chief of Police
Present—Messrs. Greon, Jones,
Mullally, Kercheval. Pott , Lips,
Apablasa, Colin and Hnlleabeok.
City Attorney Godfrey, who con
ducted the examination on behalf
of Olllcer Trlbolet, was about to
stale the grounds upon which the
Chief of Polioa may be remove',
when he was Interrupted by Major
Gauahl, counsel lor Chief Harris,
who waived tlie reading of the reg
ulations uud stated that all his cli
ent desired was a full investigation
of the whole matter.
Trlbolet was sworn and slated ia
substuuce, that, on election day, lie
was stationed at tbo Santa Monica
depot, tiie 4t 1) Ward polls.. At noon
be came up town to dtnuer and as
he camo out of the Commercial
Restaurant, he met Jean Marie
Laiisue, a Frenchman, who to.d
him he thought they wero buying
votes iv the Supreme Court. Re
told Lsvigue to go and sco if ho
could sell his vote. He went up
aud presently returned with a man
whom I alterwards learned was
Aaron Smith, wiih whom he went
ulf uud voted. They both returned
aud weut iuto the hall where Smith
bauded something to the French
man. When the latter came out
he showed me 5U whioh lie said
lie got from Smith, who (old him
if he had any friends who wanted
to vote, he would give them the
-utile aruouut. Tl'lUOiet told the
Freuohman to bring anyone that
he knew. He went off uud returt,*
ed with Jesus Villa and Marcus
Vera, who, with Levigue, were
taken to Judge, feel's office by Trio
olet. The offlou being olosed the
party returned to thu street, Tribo
let remaining in front of Temp o
block to watch while the others
weut up to the Court. At this
point Chief Harris cuiuo up nnd or
dered Tribolet to return to his beat
at tbe Santa Mouioa depot. lie
told Harris what be had learned,
showing him the $2 51) reoeiveu
iroui Smith, and a-ked to bo allow
ed to make the arrest, Harris
again ordered him to go 10 his beat.
I'riholet said lie woulu go and start
ed around the block. At the coi
ner of Main and Requena streets lu
met Officer Knock whom he told
that be hud a warrant lor the ar
rest of a man for buying Votes ami
asked him to assist in msklug tin
arrest, as the Chief object •i lo his
making any. Harris again came
up and asked Tin o|et If he had mil
been unified lo his post. Tribol.i
replied that be bad v Warrant lor
the arrest of thai man and enough
evidence to convict him and h<
wus bound to do his duty. To width
Herns answered that be (Ti mulu J
siioulri nut arrest any one wlthoti
his o/deis. Then Harris ordered
officer Fonck to arrest Trlbolet
whom tho latter ucn uripanied un
resistingly to the offlue, where his
(Tribolei's) slur was torn rudely
from his breast by Chief Harris.
While officer Bilderruin pinioned
Ills arms and Mr. Rowan held a
big dagger at bis breast Chief Har
ris held a chair in a menacing at
tilude. He (Tribolet) wus then
pushed out of mo office and culled
a liar before a big c.owd of peeple.
Iv conclusion Tiibolet stuied
that, at li P M , lie told Deputy
Baker that he had a war-tut from
Judge Peel for the arrest of tbo tnau
who paid for the vote.
In answer to Mr. Kerclievul,
Harris did not ask me for my star—
i lie tore it ol!'
To Green—Don't know why of
fleer Bilderruin held my arms.
To Holienbeck—Had a pistol; al

To City Attorney—Was not re

To Holienbeck—Tlie Chief has a

introduced that Irresponsible and

o'Deary (who insulted the mu
sicians and tho audience hy n dis
play of low breeding and bad

favor of making Butler President
of the Council and Police Commis

Vulvar fellow far exceeds that of

On Wednesday evening he intro
duced a resolution, at the Second
