(bo superintendent or the hoard "to auk.for my resignation, which is practically a. dismissal without cause being given." He reminds the board ^hat on the last occasion ho had appeared before It, "You Htated that my work was perfectly satisfactory to you," and he adds that "at no time since have I received any complaint from you or the slight-cat hint that my work was in any way unsatisfactory " "J have at no time been accorded the treatment/' the letter continues, "which you, the superintendent should have given your * assistants. I have not had your confidence. From the beginning of your appointment you have acted in such a manner as to make my position as useless a one fis possible/' "Being determined to oust me from the force without cause," the commission continues, "I realize that one of us must go, and as you have not, seen fit. to do so I will In that spirit of loyalty which I have always had to the government send in my resignation, which I hereby do.'' Regrets to Retire In a letter of December 10, Mr. Nicholson says, "I regret exceedingly that I Iiave been forced to i*etire from the position or any other police work in which I have always taken great pride and given my best efforts to at all times." He declares the superintendent's statement that he did not have cordial cooperation from him" is falfto and unfounded and cannot be substantiated by him." in his letter to Deputy Attorney Oeneral Downing, secretary of the police'board, after th*e questions had been asked in the house, Superintendent McDonnell says, "You will remera* ber that soon after the organization of yfe.force, iWr. Nicholson vertyilly tendered his resignation. He was fold there was no hurry that he could have a couple of months to look around." He was then given inspection duty, tho letter states, and subsequently asked for his resignation. "His resignation was desired on the grounds of want of cordial cooperation according to paragraph 23 of the regulations." Inspector Resigns Correspondence has also been produced regarding the resignation of Inspector Schurer from which it appears that the superintendent following a'communication from the deputy attorney general complained of not sufficient activity, in regard to prosecution under the liquor act. His resignation was asked because the superintendent informed the board he had not received "tho cordial support from you which was due from an inspector of the force." Mr. Sciiurer's letters disclose that. connection with the enforcement of the liquor act Mr. Schurer states that when he first took charge he was informed by the superintendent that the city police were charged with tho enforcement ol! tho liquor act in Edmonton . Sometime later he stated he had received.instructions from tho superintendent that, action would be taken by the provincial police �within the city. He states that, where there was evidence there were convictions and that he had acted in all cases where informations were reported. During the month of October he states his detectives were employed in criminal work and could not be engaged in liquor investigations. Superintendent McDonnell in one of his letters to the ex-inspector, hud complained that there had only been three cases between September'29th and November 1st. Thot letters disclose other matters of difference in the regard to police work between the superintendent and the late superintendent.
