Th new appointees to th police esp taincy, Patrick Mostyn and Henry P.-Hate, reported to the Mercer Board of .Fire and Police Commissioners , yesterday', morning to hav their official bonds approved. ; Each presented a bond for $1,000 In the Ameri can Surety company. After approving them the board adjourned to 7:30 Monday even ing and th new police captains, took their oath of offlc before Clerk W. L Kierstesd, notary public, though' It has been customary heretofore for th mayor to administer such oath. At 18 o'clock Mostyn assumed charge at th police station, taking tbe place, of Cap tain Daniel W. Her. Haie went' on for duty at 6 o'clock last evening, succeeding Captain Thoma Hayes.- ' 1 " For an 'hour or 1 more- yesterday' a con ference waa, on Inith mayor' office, th mayor, City Attorney. Connell, Chief Dona hue and th two deposed captains of police being parties to it. The matter under dis cussion was th course 'to 'be 'followed by Her and Hayes. Both were seen after tho close of th consultation, but neither .would make known bis plant. It ;ts understood, however, that they will put on uniform and walk beat, and then file claim for sslarles as captain, assuming that th new board hid no right to reduce them without charges being, filed anl a hearing on the charge. Both appeared In cltlient' clothes, without stars or other insignia ot rank. -"The new Board of Fir and Pollc Com missioners Is a da facto board," aald City Attorney Connell, after the conference, and the reduced captains have no right to question any act It may perform on th ground that it 1 not a legally constituted board. Th real question Is: Hsa a board that 1 both de jure and d taoto the right to reduce aa offloer.to ii,o ranks, thereby Indirectly . causing hi removal, without charges being preferred T No member of either the police or fire department can be removed ' Without charge being preferred and a hearing on the charge. Th only exception to thi rule arises when ther la a necessity tor tha reduction of th force to keep th expenditures of the depart ment within th fund allowed. "It la my opinion that the board had no right to reduce to the ranka Captain Her ana Hay and immediately afterward an point in their place Mostyn and Hhxe. Thi in effect is a removal of old officers. If it can ba dona today, then Chief Dona hue and Chief Salter can be reduced to th rank next week. Thi I manifestly against th spirit and purpose of th law. .- "An unauthorised removal in tb nature of those Just made 1 not only detrimental to the departments, but la financial! tn. jurtous to the city. The result will be that Ilsr and Hay will claim talarle a cap tain, and . If In the meantime salaries ahould be paid to Mostyn and Hate the city win d paying four salaries for the serv ice of but two officer." ' Mr. Connell said b had not a yet begun work on the petition and brief In quo war ranto to test th legal status of the new board, as he baa been -busy trying other cases In th district court, but Ae , expect? to set at it by the. flrat of next weeav j 1 I CHANGES : ON : UNION PACIFIC Wew Aawolaiaacat Made la tho Road Serrlo Sepau-t North Goo ' " 1 ' ' Paella Coast.
