Slover to Return to Rank to
Be Left by His Successor
on June 25.
Important "June White Sale" Offerings for Fridau
GENERAL SHIFTING LIKELY
Change in Every City Department
Probable With Inauguration of
A I bee Administration "Under
Xew City Charter.
Police Captain Riley will be Chief
of the police department a few days
before the new city officials take their
office July 1. E. A. Slover. Acting Chief,
will resign his position about June 25
and will return to his rank of captain,
probably taking command of the second
relief. Confirmation of both changes
was given last night.
Captain Riley, now in command of
the first relief, was informed by Mayor
Rushlight yesterday that for the re
maining 25 days of the Rushlight
regime he will be made Assistant Chief,
a position created by the Council some
time ago, but never filled. Senior Cap
tain John T. Moore, now in command
cm the day relief, wm mentioned for
the position shortly after it was made.
Over the long distance telephone from
Oregon City, Acting Chief Slover last
night confirmed rumors of his resigna
tion. He said he would return to his
rank of captain.
Captain Riloy has also been promi
nently mentioned for the position of
Chief under the new administration.
Riley Object of Attack.
Captain Riley, who was appointed
Acting Captain to fill the berth of the
first relief when Captain George H.
Bailey resigned over a year ago. has
been the object of considerable attack,
and he tendered his resignation to
Mayor Rushlight when an examination,
the results of which were not made
public for some time, showed that a
rating of 100 per cent by Chief Slover,
placed the then Sergeant Keller In the
Chief Plover's resignation, the eleva
tion of Captain Riley and filling the
berth of Assistant Chief temporarily
will fill the Captaincies.
Other Impending changes in the per
sonnel of the various ciy- departments
are causing no end of gossip and spec
ulation In Portland, now that the new
commission has been elected and the
smoke of battle has somewhat cleared.
Undoubtedly, there will be numerous
changes. Probably every department
will be affected to a. greater or less de
gree. While Mayor-elect Albee and the
members of the commission-elect are
absolutely mute on this point, indica
tions are plenty that many changes
are to bo made. It would not be sur
prising should there be a new head for
every department not under civil serv
ice, at least.
The chief of the fire department is
under civil service and is therefore not
amenable to dismissal, removal or re
duction without cause. B. F. Do well,
appointed by Mayor Rushlight to suc
ceed the late David Campbell, is the
present chief. The position carries a
salary oPf250 a month.
Health Employes Removable.
In the health department it Is cer
tain there will be changes, as Dr. C.
"H. Wheeler, the Incumbent, has an
nounced he will resign July 1. The
salary of the health officer is $250 a
month. The garbage crematory comes
under this department, too. David E.
Otis, a Jtushlight appointee, is tae
superintendent, at a salary of $200 a
month. There are several applicants
for this position. There are an as
sistant health officer, city physician,
school nurses and school inspectors,
etc., all removable; for they are not
under civil service. .
There is a rumor to the effect that
there will be a new City Attorney,
Treasurer and Municipal Judge and
possibly a new City Engineer. These
are elective by the commission as a
whole and their salaries may be fixed
by the commission.
Secretary to the Mayor is a position
that Is attracting many persons. A
number of applications for that place
have already been received by Mr. Al
bee. A salary of $150 a month goes
with this office.
Under the new charter, it is prob
able that the position of engineer In
the water department will become va
cant, as It Is generally believed that
the City Engineer will do this work.
D. D. Clarke Is the present water en
gineer andKrafrk T. Dodge is superintendent.
