No more polloe offlcero will bo p-

to Big Slchel, chairman or the police
At the meeting of the commissioners
this morning It waa found that the
money In the police deportment fund
would run behind about $1,000, .which
amount will have to be taken from the
general fund. After allowing the bills
for November there was only about
$4,000 In the fund.
"We have several vacanclen In th de
partment now. caused by resignations
and dismissals," said Slg Slchel, "but I
think we will have to do without any
more men until after New Years. Our
funds are rather low and we desire to
get along as economically aa possible."
He stated that In cane the council ap
proves the) estimates of expenses for the
coming year, the 10 additional men pro
vided for in the estimate will be ap
pointed, together with men td fill tha
vacancies In the department.
There are very few men on the ellglblk
list and In order to get suitable of
ficers another examination will have to
be hefd by the civil service commission.
The estimate also provides for (0 ad
ditional men during the Lewis and Clark
fair. A campaign to secure these of
ficers will be commenced soon after the
new year. In all probability they will
receive appointment In May.
