The chief said that he wanted Dean r. moved because he was not a stenog rapher. "He is efficient in many ways." said the chief, "but as he is not ■ stenog rapher lie lacks one of the qualifica tions T consider necessary to the po sition." This is the first time that a knowl edge of stenography has been consid ered necessary for the position, as previous executive secretaries have not been Bhorthand reporters, and Dean is the fourth man who has held the po sition under Chief Galloway. Commissioner Topham had an idea that this was not the only reason why the chief wanted Dean removed. "Why did you go to the civil serv ice commission and demand that one of the qualifications for executive sec retary be a knowledge of stenog raphy?" ho asked. The chief denied th.it he had taken the initiative in tliis matter, but had susßosted it when asked by the sivii service commission what should he the qualifications for such ;> position. This is the point on which the chief's vi i.i ity is questioned. "I'll vote for this removal," said Commissioner Davidson, "but if I find that the chief is not telling the truth 111 be the first to move that he be dis charged."' "And if I find he has not been tell- Ing the truth he must either be dis charged or I'll resign from the com mission," responded Commissioner! Johnson, In response to a written communi cation from the civil service commis sion, nskinLT what <j!jal;fieations should be required, the comnrssion voted three to one to require that the ex ecutive secretary have general office training, the ability to meet the pub- Lnd be an efficient stenographer, n beh] the position on an emer gency appointment, as there are no eligibles on the civil service list, but the stenography requirement elim- Inates him from the examination. The position pays Jl7" a month and is one of the most desirable of the clerical places In the city. Chief Galloway yesterday afternoon shortly after :t o'clock notified Dean that his services would be no longer required. In explanation, he handed Dean the following letter: "Dear Sir: In connection with your; work as executive secretary I wish to state that your work has neen that of a conscientious and efficient serv- ; ant to the department and it is my desire that if opportunity offers to be of service to you. "The position of executive secretary to this department, in the opinion of the chief of police, demands an ef ficient stenographer, and of course you are not qualified in that capacity. "A.
