raised, but was not given serious con
sideration. In his argument Attorney Baker
ifaid: "I think that Steve Maloney is
an Irishman with, a good deal of
temper. It was a condition under
which even I might have used sonic
harsh language. Mr. Maloney lias
made his apology to Mr. Kugel and
to the other commissioners. I don't
think he should be harshly dealt with.
I think the trouble was largely due
io the manner in which the former
hearing was held. Hearsay evidence
was admitted, that Maloney stale hogs
and that Maloney stole an automobile.
In making his apology to the citv
commissioners Maloney said he was
sorry: that he realized he had insulted
the officials, but that he held no feel
ings of hatred for Kucel.

"Rat or Brat?"
Did Steve Maloney - call .Commit
sioncr Kngel a "dirty rat" or a "dirty
The official stenographer, Miss
Lora Power, understood Maloney to
say Kugel was a dirty brat. All
three 01 the local newspaper men
who were in constant attendance at
the Maloney hearings swore on the
witness Hand they understood Ma
loney to say "rat."
The crowd which attended the Ma
loney hearing in the council chambe:
this afternoon was comparatively
small, judged by the interest which
was manifested during the recent
hearing of the first charges against
the chict ot detectives.
Asked bv the mayor if he was
guilty or not guilty, Maloney replied,
Attorney Ben S. Baker, for Ma
loney, questioned the jurisdiction of
the city council on several tecnnical
Alleges No Charge.
"The charge states that calling
Kugel a dirtv rat brings the police
department into disrepute, but docs
not specily definitely, sou nave no
charge within the status, said Mr.
Baker. Any policeman may say
the thing which may bring the de
partment into disrepute and yet re
main within his duty. Bringing the
police department into disrepute is
not a crime."
Captain Maloney was charged
with calling Al C. Kugel, superintend
ent of police, "a dirty rat;' also al
leging that Kugel conspired with
Paul Sutton to give false testimony
against Maloney at the recent hear
ing. It is stated in the charges that
Maloney's references to Kugel were
mimical to the.weltare ana discipline
of the police department. I he tech
nical charge against Maloney reads
Conduct unbecoming an officer."
The occasion of Maloney's out
break against his superior officer fol
lowed testimony which the prosecu
tion contended involved Maloney in
a questionable automobile transaction
Mrs. Maloney, from the city council
balcony, denounced the automobile
charge as a lie and then Maloney
arose in his wrath against Kugel and
Sutton. Kugcl's subsequent testi-
money tended to absolve Malone
from any odium in the automobile at
Was on Leave.
Attorney Baker held that at the
time of the alleged offense Maloney
was on a leave ot absence ana was
before the council as a citizen and
was being tried as a citizen rather
than as an official. He raised the
point that the city council has never
adopted rules and regulations tor pro-
cedure in a case of this nature. He
added that the charge is of a criminal
nature, and, therefore, the council

City Attorney Rine replied:
"The charges as filed are according
to fon.i as approved for fifteen years.
The statements made by Maloney
were a ; ross insult to every member
of this board."
He read a section of the statutes to
show that the council may remove any
officer whose office was created by
"The charge," he added, "is that
he called Kuge' a 'dirty rat.' That
is plain and specific. Another charge
is that he charged Kugel and Sutton
with conspiring to give false testi
mony." Is Not a Crime.
Attorney Baker: "The charge stales
that Maloney brought the department
into disrepute. That is but the opin
ion of somebody. Public opinion is
sometimes wrong. To say that a man
is a rat, or a dirty rat, is not a crime.
To be within the statutes vou have to
show that be has been guilty, of the
things you say; that he has done some
thing to bring the department into
disrepute, or has been guilty of mis
management. I object to any evidence
under this pretended charge."
i ne mayor overruled the objection.

President Wilson, according to Sen

malt and vinous liquors in case of

deems it necessary in any emergency
to prohibit further manufacture of
beer and wines," said Senator Phelan,
"but he does not believe it is neces
sary to immediately cut off the use
of beer and other beverages with
little alcohol content."
President Wilson expressed to
Senator Martin his hope for prompt
action upon the bill and anxiety over
the prospects of delay from the pro
hibition issue. The president, it was
said, as a compromise on prohibition,
suggested the plan to give him au

legislation giving him authority to
either continue or stop manufacture of
malt and vinous beverages, is opposed
to immediate cessation.
