These questions aro agitating a num

never subpoenaed to testify In court.
Instead, It is claimed, a few do all the
There Is dissatisfaction among some
of the best officers on the force over
the matter. One officer, discussing the
matter yesterday, said:
"I know of an Instance where I, with
another officer, actually made the ar
rest and delivered tho prisoner to the
station. We had no assistance from
anyone before or at the time of tho ar
rest. The man was afterward tried In I
district court. Neither the other arrest
ing officer nor myself were callud.
Others, however, were able to give the
testimony as to the arrest."
Mayor Talks to JVewsliors.
A talk from Mayor Hoctor to the fifty
newsboys of the city was the feature of
the newsboys' dinner last night at tho
Greer hotel. Mayor Hoctor didn't refer
to tho child problem, nor to the complex
ity of modern days as regards the
psychology of the boy. He told them;
"It you aro on the square and work
hard, honestly and faithfully, some day
you will grow up to be great men and
perhaps, who knows, bo president of
the I'nltcu" States." It was as eld as tho
republic, the mayor's talk, but the boys
drank down the words of the mayor with
as much avidity und their eyes glistened
and cheeks glowed with tho light of
Irrepressible hope that burns In the heart
of the lowliest.
Probation Officer Paul Macauley made
a talk to the boys, as did Chief of Pollro
John Drlggs. The banquet was given by
HrlKgy und Macauley for the newsboys of
McKnle At-repta .Second I'lacr.
Chief of the Fire Department John Mo-
Knlo lias agreed to accept second place
on tho department under former As
slstant Kiro Chief John llasburg as soon
as ho returns from his vacation. "I have
been granted two weeks' leave," said Mc
Kalo yesterday. "I shall take my vaca

everything will bo pleasant In the depart
It Is understood that the first sign of
Internal dissension In tho department will
mean a lopping off of the dissenting
members. Speaking of tho fire depart
ment yesterday, Mayor Hoctor said:
will not tolerate any pettiness In a de
partment where discipline Is so essential
to tho welfare of the city. Chief McKals
has accepted tho chango and will report
for duty after his vacation."
