After thirty-four years of faithful service on the local police force, Cap tain Joseph Jagot, the veteran in point of age, of the local force, tendered his retirement papers to the Police Board, which met Thursday morning, and the request of the aged captain to retire from active service at half pay, was approved and granted by the board. Captain Jagot will, therefore, receive $55 per month from the city as a pen sion in recognition of his long and faithful services in the past. Following the retirement of Captain Jagot, there were three well-deserved promotions immediately made. The promotions were made by Inspector of Police James W. Reynolds, and met with popular favor. The promotions are as follows: Sergeant Joseph W. Wheatley, to captain, vice Captain Jagot, resigned; Corporal William Peterson, of the First Precinct. to sergeant, to replace Captain Wheatley, and Patrolman Eu gene Casey, to corporal, to replace Sergeant Peterson. Beat Sergeant Strobel, of the Eighth Precinct, Al giers, was promoted to the rank of commanding sergeant. The promotion of Sergeant Wheatley to captain is probably one of the most popular acts that has been performed by the present inspector of police. Sergeant Wheatley's promotion come: absolutely on its merits, and is a mark of recognition, not only of faithful and intelligent performance of duty, but of acts of bravery displayed by that officer since he has held the rank oi sergeant. Wheatley's Record for Courage. It was Sergeant Wheatly who en tered the thickest of the Council of God riots several years ago, an inci dent that left a pall of gloom behind that took years to erase. In that at fair Patrolman Robert Cambias, a brave young officer, lost his life in the cause of duty. Sergeant Wheatley was then commanding the Fifth Pre cinct Station, and personally com. manded the squad that finally brought Honore and the rest of the unscrupu ous negro clan to their doom. While bravely performing his duty at the head of his men, showing a fearless ness that was astonishing, Sergeant Wheatley received a bullet in the left breast which, if it had been slightly lower, would have perforated hiu heart and snuffed out a brave life Other acts of heroism are,cred.ted tc Sergeant Wheatley. Oily a few months ago he saved the life of a mar near the Canal street ferry landing at the risk of his own. RECENT ADDITIONS TO LIBRARY 813-The Conqueror, by G. F.
