COUNCIL LEAVES POLICE QUESTION UNTOUCHED Not withstanding all tho furore of last week over the need of better police protection, the city council last night failed to take further ac tion on the ordinance providing for an increase of the force. This ordinance was given its first reading in a special meeting called by Mayor Daggett, following the | murder of Reno Hutchinson, it was supposed to be taken up and passed last night so that reinforce-, menta could be available at once. ] Why this was not done is ex plained around the city hall in the expression "the frnnieup was not right." Councllmen Stlmmell, liorr, Baldwin and Brown were absent. What other condition the "frame up" refers to Is one of the myster ies of city government.

This is one policeman to every 1,686 people. Chief Waller this morning said he supposed that the reason the matter of additional men was not ! brought before the council last night was because four of the councllmen were absent. ! In proof of the statement that Spokane has less police protection than almost any other city, Chief Waller had E. J. Cannon, division | counsel for the Northern Pacific railroad, prepare a statement in which he says that Spokane is suf fering by iin Insufficient police force. The result of Mr. Cannon's figures shows that the average force to the population in St. 1-ouis Is 2.117 to 1,000; Cleveland, 1 lilt; Milwaukee. 1.15; Minnea polis. 1.18; Kansas City. 1.72; Ro chester, 1,67; Denver, 1.4t1. Concluding, Mr. Cannon says: "When you consider the fact that Spokane is yet a new city, sur rounded by mining districts and timber territory, construction of new railroads carried on In all di rections, and other inducements held out to floating populations, Spokane has not nearly the protec tion, bearing In mind its location, that the older and larger cities have whose population is more set tled and more accessible to police protection with les.s travel." With nearly every Candidate on both republican and democratic tickets pledged to these political reforms, and a strong public senti ment in their favor, the Dutchman decided It was time to drop that end of the fight in the present campaign. He is, however, continu ing his efforts to elect the can didates on the republican ticket that are the known tools of the Washington Wuter Power com pany.
