Pending the preparation and filing of
definite charges of graft and misman
agement against Cornelius Ov Murphy,
chief of tha meter division of tbe City
Water Department, the Water Board
yeaterdav voted unanimously to sus
pend Murph from the aervlce. The

Frank W. Winn, a member of the
Board, announced that as a member of
a subcommittee appointed to Investi
gate the Murphy case, he waa author
ised to say that tbe committee would
have charges to warrant tha suspen
sion. The chargea will be carefully pre
pared under the direction of City At
torney Grant and. it Is said, will meet
the objection made against former
chargea that they were not specific.
Murphy will be accused, among other
things, of selling $32.10 worth of Junk
that belonged to the city, Intending to
convert the money to his own use.
Appeal Brlags ftetaatatearaat.
Murphy originally waa discharged by
tha Water Board "for tha good of the
aervlce." An appeal waa made to the
Civil Service Commission and that body
reinstated him on the ground that the
statement In the chargea, "for tbe
good of the eervice," waa not specific.
The auspenslon of Murphy yesterday
was to prevent him from returning to
work In tha Water Department by rea
son ot his reinstatement by the Civil
Service Commission. The grand Jury
last week exonerated Murphy.
The Water Board ordered Engineer
