Hoard of Health.

at 8 o'clock p. m. Carried.
On motion, it was decided to meet the
Police Commission and the Council to

portant matters.

THE POLICE BOARD.
Chief Burns Takes Charge of the
Force.
The Board of Police Commissioners
met yesterday afternoon at the Mayor's
office. Those who expected to see a
repetition of the lively performances of
last Saturday were disappointed, as the
meeting was as orderly as a session of
the Supreme Court. It is not impossible
that the reason for this lay in the fact
that very little business was done.
The meeting was called for 2 o'clock.
Just about that time Mayor Hazard
drew out his watch and remarked to the
two hundred and thirteenth applicant
for a position on the force who had
buzzed at his ear in the course of the
day: "See here, my friend, won't you
take pity on me 7 I give you my word I
have not eaten a bite of food all day
long. lam nearly dead." Then he
went off to the California club to recu
perate, and did not reappear on the
ecene until nearly 3. In the
mean time twenty-seven more appli
cants came in to see him,
but they were each and all shown the
door by Officer Lenox, who is the watch
dog of the Mayor's office.
Mr. Hervey Lindley was the first of
the Commissioners to arrive and he
shook hands very warmly with Frank
Burns, the new Chief, and congratulated
him on his election. This was regarded
by those present as an olive branch offi
cially tendered, a sort of a rainbow indi
cation of the harmony which was to
beam henceforth. Major Furrey was
late and bad to be telephoned for. When
all the Commissioners were present,
Mayor Hazard called the meeting to
order.
It was decided in a hasty and unani
mous fashion, indicative of previous dis
cussion, that the matter of the appoint
ments to the force should be postponed
for the present. Then the new Chief in
troduced Frank E. Biles, a good-looking
young man of about 25, who, he said,
he wished to have as his clerk, if the
Commissioners would be kind enough to
appoint him. Mr. Lindley lost no time
in making tbe necessary motion, and
Mr. Biles was confirmed to serve as
clerk.
Mr. Burns then asked that he be em
powered to appoint some one whose
name should not be made public, to go
about Eecretly, and determine the state
of affairs in the city, and make a report
to him.
"This is to be a sort of secret police
service?" asked Mr. Knox.
"Yea," said the Chief. "We must
know what is going on before we take
action."
The request was granted.
"I understand," said the Chief, "that
under the new arrangement I am entirely
subject to your orders—a ministerial of
ficer, in fact. It is therefore necessary
that you should inform me when I am to
take possession of the office."
It was moved and carried that he Vie
instructed to take charge immediately.
Terrence Cooney, the acting Chief, was
sent for by telephone, and when be ap
peared before the Commission he was
informed of the decision which had been
given. He shook hands with Mr. Burns
and informed him that his office was
ready for his occupancy.
It was ordered that the rules for the
conduct of police matters now in force
should be continued until superseded by
a new code. It was also decided that a
special committee of three should con
fer with the Mayor and the Chief in pre
paring a new series of rules. Messrs.
Knox, Furrey and Bilderrain were ap
pointed.
At this point the Secretary demanded
of the commission whether they proposed
to have the minutes of the last meeting
read. This would have included the
re-reading of the very lively protest en
tered upon tbe records by Mr. Lindley
and Knox.
"H'm," said the Mayor. "Do we want
to hear those minutes?"
There was a moment of silence and
then Mr. Lindley, in a very unconcerned
tone of voice, suggested that those min
utes might just as well remain unread.
They were not read.
The matter of the appointment of a
police surgeon by the Council was then
brought up. Mr. Lindley said he did
not understand what business tbe Coun
cil had in appointing an employe of the
police department, who was responsible
to the Commission alone. The same ob
jection, Major Fnrrey suggested, applied
to the captain of the chain-gang, who had
also been appointed by the Council. It
was decided that the Mayor's clerk should
send a communication to the Council in
quiring into the matter.
The Clerk was authorized to open and
file all communications addressed to the
Board, and to throw away all anonymous
communications.
Chief Burns said that he was desirous
of having his clerk receive a better sal
ary than that allowed by the Council.
This brought up the question of the re
duction of salaries made by the Council
and the decroase of the number of the
force. The opinion was expressed by all
the members of the commission that the
old number ought to be retained and the
former schedule of salaries. It was
finally decided to hold a special meeting
this afternoon to confer the Council, or
such members of it as could be induced
to attend, about the matter of the reduc
tion.
It was decided that hereafter the regu
lar meetings should be held on Wednes
days, at 2 p. m.
The Board then adjourned.
