CHARGE OF TAKING
WHISKY AFTER RAID
Dahlman Alone Votes Against
Dismissal of Charges;
Leroy L. Wade, former member of
the morals squad of the police de
partment, patrolman since February 1.
was exonerated by city council of
charges that on January 25 he was im
plicated in the disappearance of six
pints of whisky.
Mayor Dahlman alone voted against
the dismissal of charges against the
"The testimony ahowed that Wade
was left in charge of an automobile
from which the liquor was checked
out at the police station," said the
mayor, "and he was just as respon
sible as anybody in seeing that all of
the liquor went into the station. There
has been at least enough evidence to
take this man Wade off the morals
squad. I'll admit the evidence is not
very strong, but I am satisfied that
the whisky was token.
Chauffeur George Armstrong was
the principal witness. In substance he
testified: "On the night of the raid
at Frank Nigro's place I went out to
the police station garage to get a
car for a call. When I went in I no
ticed Officer A. C. Anderson holding
two pints of whisky in his hands and
three pints were on a chair near by
He told me the three pints were for
Officer Wade. Anderson placed the
two pints in his pocket. Then I made
my call and that was the last I saw
of the whisky. That night Sergeant
Murphy asked me about the whisky
and I reported the facts as I have
Officer A. C. Anderson, also under
charges in connection with this case,
is up for hearing Thursday afternoon.
Sergeant Murphy in his testimony
told the city council that on previous
occasions confiscated liquors had been
checked short and he added that
liquors disappeared while being car
ried from police station to municipal
court to be' used as evidence in cases
When the evidence had been of
fered, Commissioner Kugel moved
