Gortrnoe Uncertain A boat Conrse, Governor Mickey f has not heard from the members of the Board of Fire and Folinoe commissioners of South Omaha and neither has he taken any action in the matter of the protest of Joseph Spells other than to notify the members of the board of the receipt of the protest. The governor Is of he Impression the police commission laws of Omaha and South Omaha are. different In that he believes he can Interfere at the latter place while he cannot Interfere at Omaha. Today he notified the legal department h would (lie a written request for an opinion regard ing hta authority both in Omaha and South Omaha police affairs. Inasmuch as the charter of Omaha gives the mayor author ity to enforce the law, the governor believes or pretends to believe he cannot Interfere with the board there. Until the written request Is filed for the opinion Deputy Attorney General Thomp son will not tell the governor what he ran do, but under a hasty search of the two charters the legal department is of the opinion the governor - haa the right . of removal not only in South Omaha but In Omaha and this likely will be the formal decision, notwithstanding the governor's refusal to act some months ago. when the Civic Federation was complaining that the police board waa protecting lawless placet In Omaha.
