The matter of building a police station at Oklahoma where prisoners could be kept over night instead of having to bo carried all the way to the East Chicago police station was considered and the proper committee was instructed to decide upon the specifications for a two cell police station. A lengthy' discussion took place regarding the advisibility of putting a sick fire horse in the pasture or leaving him in the barn. The councilman were about evenly divided on the matter.
