lc;ty council meeting
vestigatioa into police department
affairs as related to the f iot Septem
Another' discussion on this sub
ject was precipitated when Commis
sioner Butler renewed his resolution
calling for an investigation to be
hebi Friday afternoon, November
28. The resolution; which was de
feated, stirred, up the following ex
change of opinions:
Wha. Mayor Contends,
Mayor Smith: "I am opposed to
the resolution, because, as I said
before, I believe that every police
man should be investigated, and if
bg did not do his duty, he should
be discharged. ' I think that this
demand for a public hearing is in
spired by political motives. " My
father would not invite the whole
neighborhood whenever he wanted
to whip one of his boys."
"We should find out," replied Mr.
Butler, "whether we are going to
have a police force' that will pro
tect us in the future. It is the
duty of this council to investigate.
I am not prompted by any. political
motives. We have heard so much
about certain captains and ser
geants not doing their duty that
now is the time to find out just
what happened." 4
Expression of Ure.
Commissioner Ure: "The resolu
tion is too indefinite. It is like a
fishing excursion. I believe that the
police department should be reor
ganized and.it should be handled in
a different way, but I do not be
lieve that the proposed resolution
would help matters."
Commissioner Zimman: "In what
way do you think the police depart
ment should be reorganized? You
are ratner inaetinite yourseu, Mr.
"Perhaps I am." replied Mr. Ure.
Commissioner Butler: "The- grand
jury reported that there was lack of
leadership. We might inquire why
the riot was not stopped in time and
wherein the police leaders fell
Zimman Wants Reorganization.
Commissioner Zimman: "The pub
lic should know just what occurred
at the court hctuse. I don't lavor
the resolution, but I will say that
this council has the power to reor
ganize the police department from
top to bottom, and when this coun
cil is ready to do that, then I will
be ready to vote with it."
Commissioner Falconer: "With
all of these accusations being heard,
the policemen are entitled to a fair
investigation, if we could get any-
wnere witn sucn an investigation,
but I don't see how we would get
anywhere with it."
Questions Governor s Wisdom.
Commissioner Zirnmar: "What
right has the governor to call upon
this council to investigate? I ques
tion the wisdom of the governor's
interference in saying that the chief
of police should be removed. I
would like to see the chief removed,
but I don't want the governor to
Mayor Smith: "The governor has

reports prepared by all of the po
licemen and these reports will be
given to Ralph Wilson, the gover
nor s representative.
And thus ended Commissioner
Butler's resolution, calling for a
nuhlic investieation of the recent
riot and of the actions of the police
department in that affair.

Mayor Smith and the other cty
commissioners voted to grant the
application and it was so ordered.
The particular interest in the mat
ter was that Mr. Ringer was not
supported by any of the council in
his resolution to deny this license.
Mr. Ringer's recommendation
was based largely upon a report by
Police Captain John Briggs of the
