By Leoder That the mayor discon

Considerable discussion ensued.
Corby moved to place on file. O'Koefe
favored the resolution. lie intimatoc d
there waa a great deal of rottenness.
Bohm opposed the resolution. Loeder
thought the 75 per month for a do
tcctivo was doing no good. Dunhan
said ho had introduced a resolution t
year ago for tha employment of a do
teclivo , and ho argued that the services -
vices of n detective were n necessity ,
O'Kccfo said a person could go to
places and pay 15 cents for n drink of
whisky from parties who had no
license. The gamblers , prostitutes
and pimps stuck out their tongues at
us ( the council ) . It was high time to
bring matters to n focus and find out
whore the rottenness is.
Mayor Boyd , by permission , now
addressed the council. Ho was perfectly -
fectly satisfied to dispense with the
services of n detective. _ About two
mouths ngo Iho council refused tn
allow n certain dotcctivo to work any
longer. There has boon no regular
cltlectivo since. Reference had been
made to a certain man being employed ,
bnt that man had not been employed ,
Erery dollar expended for detective
work J ! acjoinitcd. forj nnd ho ( the
ipoaker ) could inako n ttntomotit
ihoning its expenditure , and will do
10. Ho was not squandering money
lor taking it for his own use. The
council could do as they please , but
hey could not insult him. Aa to the
lotoses of prostitution , gambling
louses , etc. , the gentleman ( referring
, o O'Koefe ) , who had neon iuveatigat-
nji for himself , bad been reported to
litn as not having been in n condition
, o investigate anything. The law
atya thnt no house of prostitution or
gambling housn shall bo allowed in
Omaha , but the city council rocog-
lizua them by fining them and allow
ing them to go. Ho ha"d endeavored
to keep thcso places within bounds.
They are evils that will noconsarily ex-
st and cannot bo stamped out. If
itanipod out irt ono quarter they will
open up in another.
This city is as quiet and orderly as
o gambling and prostitution and sa
loons as any city in thn country. Ho
did not behove liquor was being sold
without license. All this funs is en
tirely useless , and does no good ,
O'Koofo replied that , na ho had
been referred to as having boon
drunk' while "investigating , " ho as
sorted that the detective who had told
Mayor Boyd that ho was drunk was a
liar. Ho could take three or four
drinka of whisky and keep perfectly
so Dor. Ho had made it a business to
visit houses of ill-fame for the past
six weeks , and had found a great deal
bf rottenness. A man bad been killed
on account of the non-ontorcoment of
the law regarding rope-walking per-
tormancea. IIo wanted the mayor to
bring that detective out and make
liim provo his worda.
The motion to put the Loodor reso
lution on file waa put to a vote and
Baker thought if the uorvicoa of a
detective were entirely disponsedjwith ,
It would bo juat as well also to dis
pense with tlio entire police forco. Too
much time had been wasted at com
mittee meetings in discussing the po
lice issue , which had been made too
much importance of. If the the thing
continues it will take up nearly all the
time , nnd allow no time for solid busi
ness. There is too much talk ; too
much gas. Ho advocated the oiuiro
wiping out of the police forco.
Loodor agreed that it was hotter to
do ayfny with the police if n bettor
forco.cmnot bo obtained. Ho wanted
protection in his business as wolf as
others , and he was going to kick until
everything was rectified.
O'Kcofo said ho wanted to bring the
police issue to a focus three months
ngo. If the mayor had appointed the
marshal and other officers three
months ago , everything would have
beed settled. All ho wanted was a
Dellono said | he believed wo had
aomo good pol icemen , but that the

On to show that iho marshal had not
done his duty in regard to pulling the
houses cf ill-fnuie.
President Iloiman suggested that
regular written charges bo brought ,
BO the council can nctadviaodly , moutl
charges amounted to nothing.
Dunham moved to amend the reso
lution authorizing employment of d -
tectivo not to exceed § 75 per month

O Keofo said ho had no objection t <
piying $75 per month for a good hon
McGuckin moved an amendment to

lowed to employ a detective for the

Dunh tin's amendment was cirried.

ho deems it necessary.
