I ! ! I " A 'II 11 FORTIETH YEAR COLUMBUS, MISSISSIPPI, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 1, 1919. PRICE, FIVE CENTS. MAYOR SUSPENDS ; CHIEF OF POLICE CHIEF GLOVER RELIEVED OF HIS DUTIES SATUR DAY AFTERNOON. COOK NOW ACTING Mayor Names Officer Major Cook Acting Chief Has Beei On Force Eight Years. Late Saturday afternoon Mayor McClanahan formally suspended Chief of Police Glover and appointed Officer Major Cook acting chief. The suspension order was handed to the chief by -the Mayor himself, and the affairs of the, department including records, arms, etc, were turned over to Acting . Chief Cook who immediately took charge 4t the police department of the city. The grounds for suspension, as stated in the Mayor's order were failure on the part of the chief to adequately enforce the law. The mayor in appointing Major Cook acting chief instructed him to com municate the order to the members of his force and lay before them the matter of the importance of enforcing the laws of the city against all violators. At the next meeting of the coun cil it is probable the Mayor's action will be communicated to that body for approval or disapproval. It is believed that the council will act on the matter at ne of the October meetings. Acting Chief Cook has been a member f th police force of the city for the past eight years. On previous occasions he has officiated as chief of the department, and is familiar with the procedure of the office and the courts before which offenders taken hi by his men come for trial.

January succeeding Mr. JoHj Morton in that position.' ft' is undecsFood he" is pre paring to aPP 1 bis case to the council and will ask a hearing be fore that bodjr at an early date.
