mitted to Go With Messrs. Clyde,

Suggestion of Logan. , '
Accepting a suggestion by John F.
Logan, a member of the Civil Service
Commission, Ralph C Clyde, J. L. Led
wldge .and W. H. McMonles resigned
as members of. the Governing Board
of the ' Municipal Free Employment
Bureau yesterday afternoon.
John G. Schroeder, chief clerk, under
Ore on charge filed by the Board, and
who was discharged at their Instance;
by Mayor Rushlight, was reinstated.
There was a "string" attached to the
reinstatement and Mr. Schroeder Im
mediately resigned.
Mr. Schroeder, as a result. Is cleared
of the charges that were filed, but the
Commissioners agreed that he was not
now the proper person to have charge
of the office and that It was best
that he go with the members of the
Governing Board.
This leaves Assistant Clerk Rich
ardson in charge of the office as tem
porary chief clerk, but it is thought
probable that another appointment
will be made and that the position
of assistant clerk may be abolished,
as Messrs. Clyde and Ledwtdge de
clared to the Civil Service Commission
ers that the chief clerk needs no as
sistant, except the one who baa charge

Mayor Rushlight, chairman of the

the Commissioners, were agreed that it
would be the best solution of a vexa

the Free Employment Bureau would
resign. Mr. Logan made the proposal
and Mr. Clyde, as chairman of the
Board, assented, saying he believed It
would be best.
Mr. Schroeder. who Is widely known
as an athlete and a law student in this
city and state, was charged wtth in

he denied. He set up the counter al

Mr. Schroeder said that he did not

Board, who placed the- charges against
him. had made out a good case. Mr.
Logan said he was of the opinion that
the members of the Board made out
sufficient case to show that the city
was not getting the best It should

the best solution would be the resigna

Announcement of Police Head Dis
poses of 21 Cases That Would
Have Gone to Grand Jury.
- Eye Is Kept on Hotels. -
By a simple announcement of Chief
of Police Slover, in Municipal Court
yesterday, that It Is not the Intention
of the city administration to persecute
Immoral women, but merely to drive
them out of business. Jury trials
scheduled for every afternoon till the
end of the month will be wiped from
the docket and 21 or more cases that
would have reached the grand Jury are
dlsnosed of.
Keepers of a disorderly house caught
in the recent raids have been made
the object of two charges, one a mis
demeanor under the vagrancy statute
and the other an Indictable offense
under the statute forbidding the keep
Ins: of disorderly places. On the
vagrancy charge every one had de
manded a trial by Jury and the cases
have been set down in order for the
next two weeks, with others yet to
be disposed of.
Chief Explains Policy.
Judge Tazwell summoned Chief
Slover yesterday and asked what the
purpose of the administration was. at
the same time giving assurance of his
willingness to oo-operate in any way
possible toward cleaning up the town.
"All We want," replied the unlet, " is
that these women shall quit the busi
ness and either reform or leave the
city." "
The cases or three women set for
yesterday- were -thereupon -continued in

day by day as the other cases come
un. provided the defendants give as
surance that they will close their
places. The charges will be held in
abeyance and may be renewed upon
their falling to keep faith.
"This ooes not mean that the houses
will be darkened for a few weeks and
then re-opened," said Chief Slover.
"From now on I Intend to keep after
these places and see that they are
kept closed. I realize that the result
