HiuM Heart ;i special u U was thought Mini wiili tin? dim- cutty in tindiny a new chief 01' police, and the troubles being experienced by the city council on account of finan- cial emitters. UK; polfc.f investigation bud jusl about boon buried unless the lute head of the force decided to take action agninst the city to recover dam- ages. Uity Solicitor Hall's report to tho council yesterday afternocii advis- ing that the city had no legal sibility for the expenses incurred by ex-Chief CJiliespie during the invefi- tiyution, was generally nndcrstood to be the ringing down ol1 the curtain on that episode which has furnished food for public discussion for ihe past two months. But it seems that ii is to be not so. Towards the end of yesterday's coun- cil meeting the solicitor's report, came til) for discussion, and for fifteen min- utes it was discussed pro and con without any decision being arrived fat. Aid. Bowman Objects Aid. Bowman was the one 10 open it. Me said that while he believed that the city was under no legal ob- ligation to pay account submit- ted by ihe chief, still bo believed thai there was a moral right, which the i city should not overlook, lie was only j voicing his own personal feelings tu the matter, but would like it fully discussed before action was taken. Mayor Hatch spoke up and said that as Aid. Bowman was not here while investigation was on, he was prob- ably not so well acquainted with the particulars as those who had been through it. He thought Hie bill was high in any case. Difference of Opinion Aid. Williamson said, they might have considered paying the bill hat! ilie chief been exonerated by the in- resiigatioii. But nndor the, circum- I stances he did not sec that they could i do other than abide by ihe advice of i ihe city solicitor. j differe'd1 with this ex- 1 pression of opinion. He believed that j Chief Ciilicsjfle had been exonerated in tho main, and 'while, they had dis- missed him from the force,! he thought that the moral obligation un- der which they rested could not. be overlooked. Then they'liepnn 10 discuss lawyer's fees. All thought thai for a lav- 1 yer in a case of that kind was too much. .Mayor Hatch described "six hundred dollars' worth of lawyer" as an extravagance. Aid. Bowman ad- I milted it. The city solicitor was ask- j ed what he thought about it. He said nothing. Referred to Committee Thou it. was decided thai it would j be belter to give the matter a HtUc j more thought before coming to a linai decision EO the whole question was referred to the police committee to report. Thev will consider it. when they meet again afier hearing from the prospective chief. 'The Board of Trade submitted a detailed statement of their expense in con nee lien with the visit of the Duke of C'onnaii.uht and party and I aslwd for After some ;iiscus- i sion the city decided that they would pay bills to this aninmu if certified bi the board.
