Mayor Muck has shown admir
able Iudurment and fair minded
ncss in retaining all tho old an
nointive officers. He realized
that they have all been perform
ing their duties in an excellent
manner, and that to make a
chanire for the short time St.
Johns has to live would not be
beneficial to the city. The no
lice department, with John PofT
as chief, have kept the city in
most orderly condition. It has
been repeatedly said by visitors
to our city that St. Johns is tho
cleanest and most moral city
that they have discovered in all
their travels. And it is true.
The records show less crime and
fewer arrests than in any city of
its size in the United States, is
is said. This is due in large
measure to eilicicnt police ser
vice. Chief PofT is a man who
is manifestly just to all. Ho
treats ono and all alike, and ex
ecutcs his duty without fear or
favor, and he is ever on the job.
He is a man of sound judgment.
careful, faithful nnd thoroughly
competent. Many dissolute per
sons as they float in here havo
been ordered to leave tho city.
which is considered bettor policy
than to arrest and fine them. In
this way undcsirablo characters
havo little opportunity to make
St. Johns thoir habitation. In
unite of tho fact that St. Johns
hns four saloons there is but lit
tie drunkenness in evidence.
Policemen Muck, Norcno and
Jones.assistants under Mr. PofT,
aro also efficient and and make
most excellent polico officers. It
would be a most difficult thing
to determine how much crimo
has been prevented by huving a
faithful, and efficient police
force. Hough characters goner
nlly find out how a plnco is po
liccu boforo attempting to com
mit doprcdations, and that tho
reason St. Johns is given n wide
berth by them. Tho people
of St. Johns in general will feel
well content if tho city of Port
land, after merging hns taken
place, will continuo Chief PofT
nnd his assistants on tho polico
force in bt. Johns.
