It would also appear that tbe repn a-tion of the police force is shatterei owing to the very "sloppy" condition n which tbe books of the departmen re kept. At least Attorney Kasto ised that word in describing bis opin on of tbe books. The court see.v. o hold- a" different opinion at th iresenc time however.

However, the magistrate's i-eiurn agrees with the charge sheets from which they are always made up. Regarding the Hoiifeldt. case it was foil mi that tbe charge sheet, and the magistrate's return both showed tlui ihe prisoner was allowed to go on suspended sentence, although the min ute book shows that the fine of tliret dollars and cos IB had been paid. IMSS said he knew it had been paid for he bad seen a receipt for the am- ount given the prisoner by Paul Wolt- ers, tbe night clerk. in the case of A. R. Lewis, May 4, the witness said he believed that the erasures bid the words; "bail estreat- ed." The words "held by Uic Chief" were written in afterwards by the rk in order to guide himself. How- ever, the cash book showed that the Tine bad been paid un July 5; the auditor's note on the charge sbeet showed it to have been paid on July Hth, while it is shown in the magis- trate's return as having been paid in June. "You will admit now that the hooks have not been very carefully said the counsel. "I'll admit ihat, but there is a dif- ferent system now."

If therefore Shand bad only when arrested and his fine was W, the would be handed back to the prisoner and Ihe charge sheet marked "given time to as it app-aared in the exhibit. It. was also shown that the "paid. WAS writ- ten in different ink from tbe rest of the remarks, that point would re- quire some explaining thought the counsel.
