There now seems to be no doubt th i
With no phase of the failures of th-:
McCaskrin administration is the pub
lic more familiar than with the deplor
able results attending his headless sys
tem cf police affairs. Soon after Mc
Caskrin entered office he announced
that he proposed to defer his appoint-1
ment of a police chief unt-l he had
found HIS IDEAL MAN. A whole year
passed before his ideal man developed
in the person of John P. Sexton, w'10
was just about to retire from the coun
cil, and whom he appointed early in
April a year ago.
The rejection of the appointment by
the council was the first instance
wherein the aldermen had declined to
coincide with the mayoral selections.
He persisted, however, in presentinj
Sexton's name meeting after meeting
until the council finally adopted a re so
lution taking exception to the repeated
nomination on the face of its rcfusif
to confirm as an insult to the council
and holding that the council would not
be rerponsible for Sexton's salary not
withstanding that he was serving for
months in the office of po'.ice chirf
without the council's consent. Month
after month Sexton's name was pre
sented to the council, and finally
through a combination of inner work
inns which have not yet been entirely
unraveled, Sexton was confirmed early
in February of this year. He served
but three weeks when his resignation
was announced, and although the an
nouncement was both denied and
confirmed by bexton, the mayor
-.layed foxy until the campaign
opened, when he published the resigna
tion, which, however, he has not yet
submitted to the council. The conse-
of importance and those where to
wards have been offered, a fact that is
the more sfrangely emphasized by the
mayor's boast "The Argus got smart
and offered a reward for burglars, and
we went out the next day and got it."
